Is there anything you need the community to do for the site due to Covid19? There will be a lot of time on a lot of people's hands soon, at least in the USA. I also want to tell you all I appreciate what a distraction this site is to lifes stresses.

Thank you all
Everyone stay healthy

Cheers Matt in FL.

Is it worth publishing your to do list ed001? I bet half your requests are from people that no longer visit the site!

And some of them could maybe turn into discussions instead, like the ones where you have been asked to compare teams of the past with the current squad.

{Ed001's Note - I will put one up and see if it does work like that mate:

Just a suggestion for an article for ed001 or maybe even MK. Perhaps an article or two about a player who was good but should have been great and didn't reach their full potential. Sort of like fallen stars of the game. Doesn't have to be Liverpool related. Adriano springs to mind as an example for instance. Anyway, just a a suggestion and keep up the great work all of you.

Sorry I forgot to note down who sent it in, I only started keeping a note of who sent them after I had forgotten who sent in all the ones I had! So any names come up for players that were good but never reached their potential?}

I know its not quite the status of fallen star yet but for me someone like Neymar has to be in the argument.

The boy had the world at his feet but unfortunately seems to be more interested in parties then doing the business on the football pitch. I think if he had Ronaldo's attitude he would be setting the standard. But he only seems to care about his image.

{Ed001's Note - Neymar is a good shout.}

On championship manager (Can’t remember which one) Djalminha was absolutely top of the pops except he kept fighting and getting sent off! As far as I can remember he was the same in real life too.

Then you’ve got Sonny Pike who was tipped to be the next Maradona and didn’t even make it at the top level.

And that lad at Man Utd who played for West Ham for half a season who’s now in Norway or somewhere because his attitude stunk.

And a few others like Ryan Babel, Jordan Ibe, Adel Taarabt, Antonio Cassano, Paul Konchesky. 😂.

{Ed001's Note - Ravel Morrison? Didn't he sign for Sheffield United?}

18 Mar 2020 12:18:05
I think Ravel Morrison's at Middlesbrough now, but I could be wrong.

Quaresma was supposed to have overshadowed Cris Ronaldo for ability and raw skill in youth teams

Also, Robin Friday. Never saw him play or even seen any footage but the book about his life suggests he would have been the next George Best. Pity he went down a similar path.

18 Mar 2020 13:57:38
Dragon stojkovic, Robinho, Ariel Ortega, Adrian mutu.

18 Mar 2020 18:29:32
Cisse. Was going to be massive imo, broken leg hampered him massively (of course)

18 Mar 2020 19:24:04
Theo Walcott was always supposed to explode into life "Next Season" but he was a decent player during the 2010s.

Daniel Guiza had one incredible season but could never kick on from there.

Andrei Arshavin could never top his 4 goals at Anfield.

18 Mar 2020 20:01:54
Slight switch from the original topic, but there was that striker at Wigan who scored a hat full early on the faded in to obscurity. Then you have the likes of gabby abonlohor and odemwingie not stars but players that were hugely raved about and faded rapidly.

18 Mar 2020 21:22:28
Haha, that was my question Ed001 :) I remember suggesting a where are they now article too for our old academy players. Like Ryan Mclaughlin for example. What made him highly rated, why didn't he work out with us, what sort of career did he have after us and what sort of future is expected of him.

{Ed001's Note - that is next on the to do list after this one!}

18 Mar 2020 21:40:39
What happened to Adriano is a human tragedy, one I would not want ANY soul on this earth, to have to endure.

19 Mar 2020 02:32:47
No worries Ed001 mate. Look forward to reading it :)

{Ed001's Note - shows how far behind I am though.}
