hi Ed001 I know we don't agree on Firmino's best position but I wondered if we agree on the defence. You stated in the summer it was too much to change most of the back four and the keeper for obvious reasons. But its now more apparent that drastic action is needed and we need a minimum of 3 new players in the back 5.

If we get one solid centre back in the January window I will settle for that. I am now strongly of the opinion that new player should take Matip's place. The first Spurs goal sums him up perfectly. No desire and no willingness to help the team. He is also so poor in the air for his size. I don't call him a defender anymore because he does no bloody defending.


{Ed001's Note - 3?? We need 2 right now, the right backs just need to be allowed to develop, left back is ok, we have keepers, they just need a chance. So that leaves the centre backs, who do desperately need upgrading, and I agree on Matip 100%. If we do nothing else, he has to be replaced.}

1.) 15 Nov 2017 06:45:25
So you say replace Matip and not Lovren?

{Ed001's Note - no, both of us say Matip is the priority, not that he is the only one that needs replacing.}

2.) 15 Nov 2017 07:32:04
Gomez replaces Lovren, VVD replaces Matip.

3.) 15 Nov 2017 08:29:34
Honestly think klavan is most reliable CB out of the three, yes he's slow, but he wants to be there and puts it in, still has a mistake on him, but can't get close and physical with players, just lack do pace in behind.

4.) 15 Nov 2017 08:29:44
Thanks ed001. 3 players are what I think will be needed by the start of next season (maybe it will include a defensive midfielder) . I will be more than happy for one solid centre back in the short term.

Main attribute needed, mentally strong and a leader.

{Ed001's Note - leaders seem to be few and far between these days, players no longer seem able to do anything other than what they are told.}

5.) 15 Nov 2017 11:41:32
Out of interest Ed001 how much of that do you think is down to management styles, wanting to basically control everything rigidly and how much is down to just producing generations who are either incapable or unwilling to have that sort of think for yourself attitude? Or is there something else to it?

{Ed001's Note - both of the above and the academy system, which produces players who are indoctrinated into working with the modern tactical manager, who only wants chess pieces to fit into his tactical plan.}

6.) 15 Nov 2017 22:03:11
Thanks for the response Ed001.

cheers macca.


1.) 15 Jul 2017 21:47:25
Bit late.

2.) 15 Jul 2017 22:24:01
Bit random but any Macca love is ok with me!

3.) 16 Jul 2017 01:33:56
Maybe here doesn't check the site multiple times a day. In addition, he seems to have RTFP.

Hi Ed001 thanks for the ongoing work and information. To be honest for next year I care only about minimum finishing top four and qualifying for the later rounds of the Champions League. Anything less and Coutinho will leave 100% and we are back to square one.

We want to be really having a proper go to win the league, I don't see how buying players from Chelsea that they don't want instead of Keita and VVD will move us forward. let's for once have a right go and I think VVD and Keita make us a real contenders.


{Ed001's Note - seriously? It doesn't matter where a player comes from or whether they are wanted there or not. You buy players that fit your team and that improve it, which a player like Christensen would do far more to do than VVD.}



05 Jun 2017 20:48:01
Hi ed002 I know we have overpaid but most of us are feeling like it is a step in the right direction. Only time will tell if its money well spent.

If we get VVD and SAlah will it be sell to buy time?
I think it should be.


{Ed002's Note - Players will be leaving Mark - the size of the squad has restrictions.}

1.) 05 Jun 2017 21:32:15
I hope we can sell as well as last year and bring in £80m to £100m. Hoping to get 2 more quality signings.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 23:08:51
Sakho will bring upwards of £20m, if these lacazette rumours are true may even be looking to sell sturridge for in excess of £30m. Lucas will probably move on for a nominal fee, moreno if anyone will take him for £8-10m. Can see one of klavan, gomez or lovren move on if vvd is signed too. So yeah it will be an interesting window indeed. Hopefully we can sort out can's contract as he will be crucial.



05 Jun 2017 13:47:47
hi Ed's cheers for the ongoing work. I am now looking at these transfers as total cost like VVD £150m, Kieta similar, Mendy £120m etc. This obviously means we can only do a maximum of 2 at these levels and probably only one. The rest of the purchases would come from sales.

We moved on quickly from Brandt so for me that is a very good sign. I just hope that we get one of klopp's main targets. I wouldn't worry about other players from the squad wanting more money they all have room for improvement. As it stands I think

RB Milner/ TAA it is a good upgrade
Kieta or VVD whichever Klopp
thinks is most important.
LW Salah
LB and one more forward thinking player if we don't get Kieta so we can try to keep the squad fresh. As Ed001 said Klopp has chosen well so far.

I would think letting him go in January will maximise his value. £25 million if we get lucky and they get desperate.

My problem is when PC leaves we must bring in someone of equal ability. Otherwise we lose something from the team and it will not be long before Mane etc wants to leave. We have to progress and get challenging on all fronts asap.

You were right Macca we did need cheering up. I will settle for 2 out of 3 being correct. If its all 3 we will be real contenders.

Me and my son thank the Ed's and Macca.

Thanks for the reply. I agree on Aguero but Klopp wants 6 workers, non stop running. I don't agree with it all the time but he won't change.

Aguero would get 25+ goals in our side but around 2 assists. Firminho will miss plenty but should get 12-15 goals and 10 assists and run around like a scolded cat.

If we don't get Keita klopp might go for Ma Farah.

Hi ed025 do you now think Keita will sign?

I know you think we need a 20 goal striker but I think Mane could well get that many.

All the best.


{Ed025's Note - in my opinion yes mark, but as i say its just an opinion, mane will get goals but if you had an aguero or someone like that who could finish the copious amount of chances your midfield create i believe you would be genuine title contenders mate..

Happy to be a red, I have said exactly that on other posts.

Mane my favourite.

Ed001 thanks for the site and your work.

I would think success would bring the sponorship. I know you will say FSG have invested plenty, but compared to our direct competitors we spend significantly less on players and wages. I don't count Spurs as they have done a superb job but I think that side will start to break up very soon.

Our transfer record is £39m and highest wage maybe £150,000 a week. I would say Chelsea, Man Ure, City, have all got 3 or more players that cost more and all 3 clubs pay upto £300,000 per week. Difficult to truly compete if year after year your competition spend £50m more than you.

I do agree though that we do not help ourselves and the money we have wasted over the years has been shocking. But the main transfers Mane, Salah are both worth more money now and the rest of Klopp's buys would overall make a small profit as well. So I hope if we keep Klopp out of negotiations we can bring in some quality players asap. Invest now to increase the revenue and improve on the pitch.

Come on Ed001 your starting to sound like MK. Firminho had a very good first half clearly the best player on the pitch. But if you think he had a good second half that is just favouritism. He gave the ball away a lot, couldn't hold it long enough for the team to get out. Didn't win any fouls, the ball just kept coming back time after time. After 70mins he was walking a lot. I don't really blame him, he should has been changed for fresh legs.

Just because he is your favourite player doesn't mean you can't say he had a poor second half.


{Ed001's Note - he is not my favourite player. Stop making assumptions.}

Also Henderson another one of your favourites. He was truly awful in the second half, how can you give Gini more critisism that Henderson? He is the captain and the holding DM, surely it was his job to pull Gini back and tell him what he expected. I never see him talking on the pitch, just a quick come on. He is useless at leading the team and a major major problem why we keep dropping points. There is no way Henderson should play agains't Chelsea.

Yes I agree. But it needs some changes in personel and formation, urgently.
