Alright lads maybe related to what macca said but in hearing from my friend who's father works for the club that we are going to try and pip arsenal for Malcolm. Klopp feels him or mahrez could play salahs position while salahs slots in at cam or secondary striker when we play 442.

lerchy

{Ed002's Note - There was a meeting regarding Malcom in London late morning tody. But not with Liverpool.}


1.) 13 Jan 2018 18:41:56
First time poster. Been following this sight for years. I absilu6ely love it. In response to what lerchy mentioned. I understand from someone who knows a bit that Arsenal are getting Malcolm. Utd in for Sanchez and greizan will be going Barcelona in the summer. Nothing on Liverpool though. Keep up the relentless work eds.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks Dudley.}


2.) 13 Jan 2018 18:46:35
So Klopp has explained his tactical thinking for general circulation around all staff at LFC, yet even professional journalists (and Macca) are keeping quiet on the identity of our targets.

Unlikely I’m sure you would agree.


3.) 13 Jan 2018 21:47:22
Shame its not us, he is an excellent prospect and will light up the prem, he is still very young too and can only get better.


 

 

28 Dec 2017 14:21:42
ed 002, is there any truth to a report that we are scouting monaco's fabinho with a view to a summer move. him and keita as our holding cms would be beautiful. de vrij and van dijk behind. pipe dream or reality?

lerchy

{Ed002's Note - No, I am not aware of Liverpool scouting Fabinho. There is declared interest from a couple of sides and Manchester City May also look to him. But nothing from Liverpool.}


1.) 28 Dec 2017 14:36:42
thanks happy new year to you and the other eds.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}


2.) 28 Dec 2017 15:37:09
Hi Ed’s, in reply do you think there is any interest in De Vrij since VVD? Cheers, have a Happy New Year!

{Ed002's Note - It won't be clear until January 1.}


3.) 28 Dec 2017 17:29:27
Cheers Ed002. Have a happy new year!

{Ed002's Note - And you. thanks.}


 

 

14 Nov 2017 18:56:24
Could the eds answer if we have any interest in free agents next summer, de vrij, gimenez or arrizabala. Thanks.

lerchy

{Ed002's Note - As I have explained on a number of occasions Liverpool has an interest in De Vrij.}


1.) 14 Nov 2017 19:21:07
Thanks for the quick reply would be a dream to pull of them the and goretzka on a free. Any one of them would be good.


2.) 15 Nov 2017 06:46:51
Hasn't de vrij signed a new contract?

{Ed002's Note - It does not mean he won't be available. There is a fixed fee termination clause included.}


3.) 15 Nov 2017 08:19:17
And let's do it the right way for a change ask how much and pay up no feckin about.


4.) 15 Nov 2017 18:11:39
Gimenez of atletico and Goretzka of schalke are also being looked at for a free transfers.


 

 

09 Jun 2017 15:20:36
Question for ed 002 if about. Is there any interest in clyne? As I'm. lead to believe klopp favours mulberry right side.

lerchy

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any efforts being made to sell Clyne.}


1.) 09 Jun 2017 16:52:52
Have a feeling Klopp has turned his attention towards getting in a CB (whether its VVD or someone else) while giving Clyne another season and TAA to step up before reviewing the RB situation next year. Totally up for TAA being first choice RB for next season.


2.) 09 Jun 2017 17:50:41
Rotation at RB between Clyne and TAA will get the best out of them both next season.

Plenty more positions need strengthening before RB for me.


3.) 09 Jun 2017 19:15:18
Oh yay, another season of Clyne having no positive outcome on the pitch.

That is one way of improving our squad :-O.


4.) 09 Jun 2017 19:53:34
Milly right side sorry.


5.) 09 Jun 2017 19:12:23
A question to the Eds, are you aware of any changes to the Sharkpod list of targets with what has happened over the last week. If not can everyone stop throwing random names at the Eds before they get really fed-up.
Thank you and goodnight Eds.

{Ed002's Note - A good question - add Benjamin Mendy (versatile but so expensive he may well have been priced out of a move) and remove Kessie, Maxime Lopez, Dembele and Azmoun.}


6.) 10 Jun 2017 01:11:47
I think Clyne is getting a raw deal on here. To say he has had zero positive impact on games is inaccurate. He's England first choice RB for a reason. If he could improve his crossing and general end product he has huge potential. Defencively he's fine. I agree that between him a taa we really have other priorities. In fact almost every other position on the park. Lb cb cm w st. Even gk.


7.) 10 Jun 2017 07:20:34
He's not first choice RB for England. Kyle Walker is miles ahead of him!
Fact is, Clyne has really poor end product, he has no idea what to do with the ball so he normally passes back or sideways. Defensively he's ok but he can have some positional issues. But yeah, other areas need attention first. I reckon Klopp will really try to step up TAA's development as Klopp loves his fullbacks to get involved in the attack.

In saying that, I think Pereira at RB and Mane in front of him would be absolutely lethal!


8.) 10 Jun 2017 08:57:35
As Greg said, he is NOT 1st choice for England. He'll be lucky to even be 2nd choice. Walker and Trippier both produce more in the final 3rd. And everyone needs to remember, it's one signing at a time. Seems like CB and winger are 1st priorities and I'd agree with that. Then fullbacks, then midfielder, and then maybe a striker or maybe not if Solanke looks good enough in pre-season I'd say. Please bear in mind, the window doesn't close until Thursday, August 31 at 23:00.


9.) 10 Jun 2017 10:53:39
Sorry but Clyne is not ok defensively. He has a constant habit of switching off and letting players in. Several goals this season came from it. Milner who isn't an outright defender looks more switched on and capable of blocking and disrupting crosses.


10.) 10 Jun 2017 15:20:37
Ok. Ok. I think Clyne will come good. He does the basics well, better end product and he'll be one of best in league. Good pro and I'll be surprised if we bring in a RB. A lot of people expect us to play 343 next year so will he even get a game?


11.) 10 Jun 2017 15:59:19
How is CB and Winger a priority over LB position? We don't have a LB as Milner isn't one although doing a good job and Moreno is just awful. We have four cbs plus a couple who could cover and in a front three we have players either side of the striker, so how a LB is the first position to be signed and top level at that.

It's like spending time looking for 3rd choice older keeper now Manniger has gone. why?

Just get Mendy, be done for a change.


12.) 11 Jun 2017 00:00:11
Clyne is never a lfc player he's Shite.


 

 

03 Jun 2017 12:21:57
I'm hearing salah is taking the number 11 with firmino moving to 9.

lerchy

1.) 03 Jun 2017 12:39:48
I think he get 22 look at his Twitter.


2.) 03 Jun 2017 13:07:49
Someone needs to take that number 7 shirt off James Milner.


3.) 03 Jun 2017 13:28:07
I thought firmino was going to be number 2.


4.) 03 Jun 2017 14:08:26
How another we actually sign him beige figuring out what number he is going to wear.


5.) 03 Jun 2017 14:09:01
How about we actually sign him before figuring out what number he is going to wear.


6.) 03 Jun 2017 14:42:14
Good aul beige 😂.

I see a lot of posters asking what cb we are targeting and tbh not even klopp knows right now.

Imo we should look at nico elvedi, the swiss cb at bmg. Bmg have the third best defensive record and he's comfortable as a ball player, he's covered lb and rb this season also and has over 150 appearences at the age of 21.

lerchy

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about the CBs we know the club has looked at.}


1.) 17 Feb 2019 23:59:50
Yes i have seen that so thanks ed, just a bit of fantasy football fromme.


 

 

05 Feb 2019 00:42:29
Carry on with this attitude and the fans will be to blame, who cares? We are top so no pressure or nerves, sing more! And be happy.

lerchy

1.) 05 Feb 2019 01:01:27
Come on the twelfth man! We are tho ones letting the boys down, Leicester game especially, i remember a time the ball was sucked into the kop it was so noisy. Home or away its February so let's not bite our nails and go silent yet.


2.) 05 Feb 2019 02:11:31
I am dissapointed. and nervous but agree the negativity must stop. We have lost one game all year this far. ONE GAME. Even if we don't win it all it won't be because of bottling it, chocking, Klopp. it will just be fat. what might go down as one of our best point tally ever might not be good enough against the team of the decade.


3.) 05 Feb 2019 04:11:31
Lerchy, stop blaming fans just because you think that sort of comment will be well-received on here. The players were poor last night, and we are in danger of throwing away a league lead that could have been 7 points as recently as last Wednesday.
We aren’t letting ‘the boys’ down at all, fans give their time, money and emotion to support the club and should not be blamed when it is quite clear that the pressure is getting to the players.


4.) 05 Feb 2019 05:05:50
Lowefc no one is blaming the fans but surely turning on the players and club when things aren’t going well is not going to help.

The players need support and all this negativity is baffling. We are still 3 pts clear at the top with less than a third of the season to play and fans are acting as if we are on the verge of relegation. The club is in the best position it has been in for a long time.

I understand that the last 2 performances haven’t been the best and it can be frustrating but surely getting behind the team (who are clearly feeling the pressure) and showing our ‘support’ is more helpful than all this negativity.

Where’s Salah when you need him? ;)


5.) 05 Feb 2019 05:32:26
two below average performances donot deserve appreciation. Fans support the club and they make it clear this won't do and are right in voicing their concerns. Player need to buck in up and look inside and overcome whatever is stopping them from performing day in and day out. Its not negativity, its general concern.
If players want to be pampered and supported for strolling in the park for 90 minutes they can look for new clubs. few of our best players have let us down in last two games and yes we love them but it doesn't mean we cannot slay into them. Fans have waited bloody long for the title and when the team plays below par they are right in voicing their frustrations with some players.


6.) 05 Feb 2019 06:29:32
Dont get too high with the wins and not too low with the losses (draws. ) . Its a nice way to live life amd better for the blood pressure.


7.) 05 Feb 2019 08:23:59
I think it’s important to reiterate our away fans last night were brilliant and beyond criticism 👏.


8.) 05 Feb 2019 08:53:09
Lets hope anfield are too then ron because the last two games we scored early then bit our nails until the end, was it that way in the 80s? And im not slating anyone im simply asking for support and calmness. Its early February and fans are saying its over.


9.) 05 Feb 2019 09:09:01
They’re only saying that on the internet though lerchy, it doesn’t count 😉
The atmosphere at home league matches has been nothing to write home about for years. Too much anxiety, we need to win something 👍.


10.) 05 Feb 2019 09:22:28
At the beginning of the season if anyone said to me by early feb with 13 games to go we would be top 3 pts clear of city I would of ripped their arm off. people want to pinpoint individual match performances but champions are made by their prerformances over the whole season. city lose to Newcastle and we think we’ve won it. we draw with Leicester and West Ham and suddenly we have lost it. there are more twists and turns yet rest assured.


11.) 05 Feb 2019 09:32:41
Folks it's not the last two performances is it really it's been since the Brighton game we have been very average to poor. Things can spire out of control very easily an this season could end up being quite a poor season. Forget 12th man this is down to players pulling their finger out.


12.) 05 Feb 2019 19:18:56
Definition of irony:Liverpool fans negative and moaning even though we at top, but every other clubs fans would be dancing in the streets if in our position.


 

 

12 Dec 2018 13:50:52
Help me out lads, what player should i get on my two year old boys kit for xmas? Kind of torn between virgil and gomez. He had salah last year.

lerchy

1.) 12 Dec 2018 14:10:57
Gomez, as he will most likely be around longer.


2.) 12 Dec 2018 14:14:37
Virgil, he is a monster.


3.) 12 Dec 2018 14:27:08
Negs, I would imagine a 2 year old will outgrow the kit before big Virg leaves us ;-)


4.) 12 Dec 2018 14:27:50
Gomez mate.


5.) 12 Dec 2018 14:41:12
Virgil. He'll be our captain eventually and 4 looks cooler than 12.


6.) 12 Dec 2018 15:38:04
I think Gomez. Unlike crazy horse, I don't think a 2 year-old should wear what belongs to a monster.


7.) 12 Dec 2018 15:44:46
Why not Alisson?


8.) 12 Dec 2018 15:50:26
Alexander Arnold should fit nicely on a kids shirt.


9.) 12 Dec 2018 15:52:15
Nice one lads, still can't choose. Im keeping them every year with a different name so we can look back. I was going to get the pink gk kit with alison as its his mothers name but everywhere is out of stock until January! Even the lfc store. My life is finally back on track, im going to have the best xmas and i hope you all are too. Merry xmas to all of you.


10.) 12 Dec 2018 17:25:02
Nice one Lerchy, hope you have a great Christmas mate!


11.) 12 Dec 2018 18:55:14
I’d get a 2 year old a different present, to be honest. He won’t know what he’s wearing and you’ll have a very expensive top for a teddy in 6 months.


12.) 12 Dec 2018 19:33:21
TAA, all day, OP.


13.) 12 Dec 2018 21:15:54
He knows red, he already loves football and recognises his current shirt and repeatedly says ball! Its more the nostalgia and a common life long bond between father and son.


14.) 12 Dec 2018 23:31:19
Have a look at a site called dhgate. com it's where I get all my kit. A full kit cost around £12 with name and number great value especially for kids who grow out of them in no time.


15.) 12 Dec 2018 23:55:36
Looks good, are they the real deal? You know the old saying, if it sounds too good to be true.


16.) 13 Dec 2018 00:06:28
Ahh too long on the shipping, the purple away with virgil is en route.


17.) 13 Dec 2018 00:12:42
Allison 👍🏼.


18.) 13 Dec 2018 00:14:58
Is right lerchy lad buzzing for ya. As for the kit get Fabinho on mate be different he going to be brilliant for us 👍 merry Christmas back at you.


19.) 13 Dec 2018 00:22:28
Robbo.


20.) 13 Dec 2018 02:23:25
Nice one john, all the best.


 

 

09 Mar 2018 15:36:10
hi eds do you know if a move for diawara rather than jorginho could be likely or possible? i notice he's the same nationality as naby but wants to apparently pledge his allegiance to italy. could we persuade him to join us?

lerchy

{Ed001's Note - no idea sorry.}


1.) 09 Mar 2018 15:49:02
thanks ed. iv'e just read that tranmere are closing there youth academy bar the under 18s and are telling the parents not to bring the kids anymore. i think its really sad as the wirral has good youth prospects, i've played with a good few. i think its a shame on these kids though, isn't there anything liverpool or everton could have done? i feel a lot of youngsters who could have been top pros will now just drop out. thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know about Everton but typically Liverpool have far from helped any other clubs when the need has arisen., or even there own players out on loan before a move (think Spearing and Bolton). Morally the club is known to be one of the bankrupt ones - hence a number of extremely questionable "partners", and a number of incidents in the past. I expect the local community is cared for rather more by Everton. I would however say that many, may pro players across the world do a great deal for charity and some do community support work including one current PL goalkeeper who gives free coaching classes to local kids in a French city at a club he left many years ago.}


2.) 09 Mar 2018 16:44:08
I'm guessing that is Hugo Lloris Ed2?

{Ed002's Note - No, Petr Cech.}


3.) 09 Mar 2018 17:00:22
Oh ok cheers mate.


4.) 09 Mar 2018 19:46:56
Ed 02 - So Liverpool is a morally bankrupt club. Have you anything to say about a certain London club (of which you seem particularly fond) with a morally repugnant owner whose vast wealth is of dubious origin?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are referring to. Your knowledge of the game and clubs is seemingly based on complete pig-ignorance and yet again it is a Liverpool supporter trying to defelect and make it about someone else. You might want to try and understand what other clubs have done to help smaller clubs, ex player etc., then perhaps you might be embarrassed about Liverpool who have a history of fucking up others at the first chance. People like you are typical of those who have turned the Liverpool fanbase in to a laughing stock.}


5.) 09 Mar 2018 20:14:53
I’m embarrassed by the clubs actions in the recent history ed, hopefully they can start to turn things around.
Some of the players recently have done some very nice charitable things, I hope this is a turning point and we see more of this from the players and especially the club.


6.) 09 Mar 2018 21:19:47
Got to say I think clubs like Liverpool should step up and help in these situations. It would be a drop in the ocean for us to fund the continuation of Tranmeres youth set up.

{Ed002's Note - It is not as simple as that but it wont happen.}


7.) 09 Mar 2018 21:26:55
Edd 2 is right about liverpool fc over the last couple of years its been a poor showing from liverpool fc but I agree with Mikey that just recently the players have been doing a little more with charities. Trent and salah come to mind.
Long may it continue and the club start helping out more. Zz.


8.) 09 Mar 2018 22:22:27
Sorry if Tranmere is in trouble why is ed 2 having a go at liverpool it's modern football the big clubs are getting bigger and steadier and clubs like Tranmere are surviving on scraps sad but true.

{Ed002's Note - Read the question moron. It is the usual brain dead trash whining because they don’t like the answer. You obviously don’t like the truth so go somewhere else.}


9.) 09 Mar 2018 23:27:17
Roasted, Ed2 as brutal as you can be, you have me in histerics at times mate.


10.) 09 Mar 2018 23:27:21
Long Memory Man why are you attacking Ed002? He just say Liverpool Football Club don't help others clubs and sadly it seems is true.


11.) 09 Mar 2018 23:34:01
Ed 02 you say it’s not as simple as that but couldn’t we come to an agreement where say we get first refusal on young talent or something.

{Ed002's Note - No, you cannot simply give away the futures of players.}


12.) 09 Mar 2018 23:40:27
Ed 02 disregard that last post just realised first refusal on youth players is impossible to promise. Ultimately it’s the decision of the kid/ parent as to where they feel their future lies. Still think there’s got to be something the bigger clubs can do to keep Tranmeres set up active though. If Tranmere can’t continue what chance has the grass roots game got?


 

 

07 Feb 2018 10:56:13
why does everybody rave about pulisic? he hasn't scored this season yet he's considered a 60 million plus player? i hope kent and wilson get a chance to prove themselves next season as they were brilliant also ojo too. wilson i'd say has more potential than pulisic the lad just needs to adjust to the man's game which i think he will. harry kane was on loan to millwall a few years ago, let's give our youngsters time.

lerchy

1.) 07 Feb 2018 11:07:08
Agreed lerchy, I'm with ya on that.

Wilson could be outstanding if things go his way, not every player can be a Fowler/ Owen and go straight into the first team.


2.) 07 Feb 2018 11:38:08
Pulisic is the real deal, Lerchy. I saw him play vs RM in the CL and he was unbelievable and at only 19, he will be very good if all goes well. Just my opinion.


3.) 07 Feb 2018 12:02:18
i'd say wilson is of equal ability with a similar potential ability hence why we should develop our own. class of 2018 woodburn, trent, wilson, ojo, kent?

{Ed001's Note - Wilson of equal ability to Pulisic? Are you for real? He is not even close, unfortunately.}


4.) 07 Feb 2018 12:21:43
How can you say Harry Wilson who has played once for us against Plymouth has the same ability as one of the highest rated young players in world football, madness.


5.) 07 Feb 2018 12:37:36
in a crap dortmund team he has contributed nothing? we will see on wilson. he ain't out of klopps plans trust me.

{Ed001's Note - contributed a lot more to Dortmund than Wilson has yet to anyone in proper first team football.}


6.) 07 Feb 2018 12:47:13
Nobody can say for sure who is better than who unless both have equal opportunities in similar situations - Wilson looks fantastic in the U-23's, would Pulisic look as good? Impossible to say. Same if it was the other way around.

Ings has hardly looked a world beater in the U-23's but yet he's probably our backup Striker right now.
Circumstances make the difference sometimes and in my opinion if the circumstances are right, Wilson could be a top player - not saying better than Pulisic or worse, but just that he needs a run of games before judging - same for many players i. e. Salah at Chelsea in recent history, look at him now though, flourishing in the right circumstances and atmosphere.

The potential is all there with Wilson, I have no doubt about that after watching him well over 20 times over the last 4 years or so and I hope it's realised with us or it'd be a real shame and missed opportunity to develop another youth prospect.

It's just my opinion though.


7.) 07 Feb 2018 13:05:25
Guys, we've hit peak silliness with this thread. It's so silly I can't bring myself to make an argument. All I can say I will remind you of this conversation when Wilson is a jobbing winger in the championship.


8.) 07 Feb 2018 13:21:40
Wow!

That was a completely pointless post then wasn't it if you have nothing to point out - it's okay, forget it, I wouldn't waste my time reading an arrogant opinion anyway - everyone is wrong and you're right clearly.

What did you hope to achieve with knocking a youth prospect at your own club without explaining your reasons why - this is one of the most pointless posts I have read on here in many many years.

Don't bother replying to me Putney, I don't personally have time for arrogant, empty and baseless posts - thanks.


9.) 07 Feb 2018 14:55:47
Kev
Maybe Putney has a bit of reality? Not every young player makes it thru the ranks, infact very few at Lfc. Putney thinks Wilson will be plying his trade at a Championship club, i tend to agree with him. Maybe that's where Wilson starts, who knows where he might end up in the future. Its working out for Coady. I know Liverpool fans want every youngster to "make it" Reality is seldom do.


10.) 07 Feb 2018 15:12:28
I have watched Pulisic for the USMNT and believe me he is the real deal. He will go down as the best American ever, and he is still so young. If you read about him, he is humble and grounded. I wish the club snaps him up for two reasons. He is that good, I think he will be better than Phil. And 2 he will raise the profile of LFC in the states
Matt in FL.


11.) 07 Feb 2018 15:51:39
Rover, that's all he had to say but instead he decided to knock the lad and be smug about his opinion being the correct one with nothing to back it up.

Wilson is a kid and he plays for us right now and has gone on loan to Hull after signing a new contract with us, so somebody obviously sees some talent in there, but I respect your opinion as you offered it in a very fair way unlike the other fella.

If he becomes a permanent Championship player, there's nothing wrong with that either but no need for "fans" to say it smugly as if that'd be a personal failure for this kid.


12.) 07 Feb 2018 15:57:10
By the way Rover, i am very much a realist, hence why i say he needs a chance. I never said he'd definitely make it with us, not once.

Is a realist someone who smugly knocks one of our youths definitively saying he's not good enough and will fail?

No mate, that's not realism, that's smugness and it's pretty sad in my opinion Rover.

Even if Wilson does fail with us I'll say the same thing. Should always back your own not knock em, especially when it's just a 19 or 20 year old kid.


13.) 07 Feb 2018 16:29:34
Oirish, I apologise, it was meant to be more light hearted than it came across.

My position is that favourably comparing a player who can't even get on the bench with us to a guy who not only is a regular starter at one of the best clubs in Germany but is also one of the highest rated youth prospects in world football is not reasonable.

Wilson had done very well at U-23 level but nothing at senior level. He is behind Woodburn, Ojo and Kent and it is unlikely that he will make the grade with us. I suspect that he will find his level in league 1 or the championship.

My previous post may have been frivolous but I believe my assessment is reasonable.

Pulisic is good on the ball but he lacks any end product, there’s no doubt he’s a good player, but let’s not go over the top here. They said Freddy Adu would be America’s greatest footballer! To say he’ll be better than Coutinho is a ridiculous comment, given that there’s no evidence to support it, he lacks the shooting ability for a start! It is also worth commenting that m he has said, unequivocally, that he has absolutely no desire to play for us. The only team he wants to play for in England is the mancs.

MrDennis,
Have you seen him play? Pulisic doesn't go missing in games, he gets manhandled, and im telling you he is that good. The eye test doesn't lie. And I stick by my opinion that he will be better than Phil. Also low bliw on Freddy Adu🙄.

{Ed001's Note - Pulisic is nothing like Adu, Adu was just fully grown at 14 so looked great in youth football. Pulisic has been playing against adults for years now and still standing out.}

Lerchy. I like your optimism mate.

Freddy Adu was a victim of all the hype put on him, IMO cos I saw him play lots of times esp. for the U. S Olympic team and the U20 World Cup in 2007 alongside Altidore, Marcelo, Pato, Aguero, Vidal, Sanchez, Di Maria etc. He was very good BUT his career never got off the ground.

OlIrish, I don't know what you are on about BUT I think you are responding to comments I never made.

{Ed001's Note - do you really think he was very good? I remember seeing him as a kid and wondering what the hype was about as he was exceedingly average. If he had been playing at 14 on Merseyside he would have struggled to get in the school team, just at the period the hype blew up around him. He is the epitome of crap dressed up as quality because they are physically advanced.}

No problem Putney.

You may be right about that Ed BUT you have to admit that he was also a product of the American sports merchandising, trying to force soccer on kids at the time esp. in high school. I just felt that he had some ability at the time BUT he should have been allowed to grow like Pulisic is doing now in Germany where the academies are more suited to help these kids. In the U. S, that was and is STILL not the case. Just my opinion, I guess.

{Ed001's Note - like I said, I never saw anything in him that you wouldn't see in every schoolkid who actually grew up playing the game. He was miles off the level of a quality youngster in a place where kids grow up playing the game. It was just that he was playing against kids who were still new to the game, not that he was good, that made him look so much better.}

Eder militao would be my choice, already capped by brazil and can play cb as well as rb.

Just like he said gerrard isn't a top top player. Excellent manager but a miserable old mman.

No chance mk he has no pace, it wouldn't surprise me if this or next could be his last season with us due to fitness concerns and his age

And benny i really don't think trent is a right back myself, he's played his whole youth at cm. I know that's meaningless but i think he would excel at cm once his positioning has come on. I also don't think he would be happy to stay at rb as in many interviews he has stated cm is his position

Have a good day as well lads.
