Question for ed001, if u have to pick a player from leeds to come to Liverpool which player will you like?

{Ed001's Note - a few years back it would have been Pablo Hernandez without a shadow of doubt. Classy player who has been far too good for the Championship since moving there. Now though, it would probably be Shackleton.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed001 what’s your thoughts on Leeds this year. Do you think they will stay up with the football they are likely to play?

{Ed001's Note - in a normal year, yes defo. This season is going to be more difficult simply because they don't have the size of squad needed to cope with potential injuries added to players missing out due to positive tests or self-isolating because someone they had contact with has tested positive. This is going to favour the teams with the biggest overall squads and they have a small, tight-knit group. So it is going to be very difficult. The footie they play with give them the best possible chance though and, all things being equal, they should finish in mid-table.}

Ed01 I never even thought about the isolation part playing a factor into this season. This really could go down to luck. A team could end up without their best players for a number of big matches more than once over the season due to someone close to them testing positive for it.

{Ed001's Note - exactly. Look at St Mirren, lost all 3 goalkeepers for their game yesterday and had to register one of the coaches as a player, he was 40 years old! Luckily they managed to also get a keeper in on loan literally just before the deadline to enable him to play. It would be like us having to put John Achteberg in goal. Can you imagine it? And yet it very easily could happen as goalkeepers work together as a group, so one getting a positive test means the rest have to self-isolate for 14 days! It could turn this season into a shambles with matches being postponed all over the place and no spaces to play them later.}

Ed001 that’s the first I’ve heard about the St Mirren game and that’s mental. Will be interesting to see what the Fa does when this happens to premier league clubs this season. The only positive thing for us is Karius is safe as that lad struggles to catch anything 😂.

{Ed001's Note - I did mention it in today's news review. St Mirren were extremely upset as the SFA refused to allow the game to be postponed!}

13 Sep 2020 12:38:56
Hi Ed001, with what happened to St Mirren in mind, have the FA confirmed what needs to happen in order for a game to be postponed, as in the number of players out due to testing positive/ self isolating?

{Ed001's Note - there is some kind of system in place but you would need to ask Ed002 what it is and whether it is based on a set number being out.}

Stuart Dallas. 10 years ago playing for Coagh Utd, now in the PL with Leeds. Real Roy of the Rovers stuff!
Ok, I know I biased and he isn't good enough for LFC, but I'm not embarrassed about bigging up NI footballers in the hope that one day someone will play for Liverpool 🙏🙏😗.

{Ed001's Note - the Leeds fans call him the Cookstown Cafu.}

What is your opinion on Kalvin Philips ed1?

{Ed001's Note - good passer, lacks mobility and needs to improve his reading of the game. He doesn't really protect the defence well enough but he can learn that. He does provide a good platform to launch attacks from. He reminds me of Jorginho to be honest, but with a more incisive range of passing.}

He looks more like a deep lying playmaker than a DM. I asked because Bielsa seems to have turned him from a player not thought to be good enough for a mistake championship into a premier league quality player.

13 Sep 2020 17:24:43
I thought Harrison was quite impressive. Took his goal well. Keeping cool with gomez vvd and Ali about was classy.

13 Sep 2020 17:26:02
I think maybe the clubs need to be really switched into this and keep the 1 and 2 keeper apart from each other. It’s not imperative that they work together like the attackers for example, far from ideal but there must be some sort of work around to keep them apart as much as possible.
