Don't necessarily need a player report Ed, but always wondered what your opinion of Peter Beardesley was?
I started supporting Liverpool around that time, mainly because Ray Houghton was my hero!, but Beardsley, Barnes and Aldo seemed to be the original 'Front 3'

Always wondered why on Earth he was sold, to of all clubs, Everton. I even remember him scoring against Liverpool on MNF in the early years of the Premier League!

Anyway, just wondered what your opinion was of a player who's name really doesn't pop in the news anymore.

{Ed001's Note - to be honest I was just a kid when he played for us and whenever I was at Anfield I was just watching Barnes, who was my hero. So I didn't really take as much notice of him as I should. He was a bit of an unsung hero and sold too soon as they thought he was showing signs of fading. Quality player, who could continue to play at a very high level as he was not at all reliant on pace.}

The Beardsley shuffle if you know you know. un-defendable. What a player.

24 Jan 2024 16:12:43
Liverpool sold a few players too early around that time, Houghton and Staunton are others that went too early.
Beardsley wasn't the only player to make that move, Gary Ablett also did it a few months later.
Sometimes I yearn for the days when Liverpool would sell players to Everton and vice versa but then I look at the Everton squad and it passes.

{Ed025's Note - just so long as you dont palm us off wit Jota or Gomes Thunderbird, we have enough average joe,s mate.. :)

24 Jan 2024 16:15:19
All part of Graeme Souness's litany of mistakes when he took over from the King.

24 Jan 2024 16:18:56
Was a bit like Benayoun.

24 Jan 2024 16:48:41
25, you'd be building a statue of Jota or Gomez inside a week.

{Ed025's Note - to be fair SR Joe is not getting in our back 4 mate, Tarks, Jarrad and Mykolenko are miles above him, Jota could get in as a false 9 i suppose if we can coach the clumsiness out of him of course.. :)

24 Jan 2024 17:44:41
Love it Ed0025.

My nan gets into your back 4 mate and the only clumsiness I’ve seen is when Calvert Lewin clumsily went in his younger sisters wardrobe and put her school uniform on.

{Ed025's Note - now that was a mistake JK.. :)

24 Jan 2024 18:02:57
Cmon Ed25.we agree on most things but saying Joe doesn't get into your back 4 is crazy.

{Ed025's Note - its the truth JCL, Branthwaite and Tarkowski are miles better mate and hes too fragile as a full back mate..

24 Jan 2024 18:06:41
@SR, says the guy who had the "prolific" and "eye-tested" Neil Maupay starting for his team and the "legend and defensive stalwart" Yery Mina starting at CB. Ed25 is a riot, I must admit.

{Ed025's Note - i never liked Maupay Oli and would certainly have Jota instead of him...even though Jota is like Mr Bean most of the time, Joe and Yerry are 2 peas in a pod for me mate, both decent but dont stay fit long enough to be classed as very good..

24 Jan 2024 18:52:40
Beardsley was better than Benayoun. For a bloke not exactly gifted with brains he was an utter genius on the pitch. Had two extra yards in his head and was brilliant with the ball at his feet. Plus there’s that impression that Bob Mortimer does of him which I recommend every one should listen to.

24 Jan 2024 19:16:05
Way better than Benayoun.

24 Jan 2024 19:21:39
Ed025 come on mate I don’t know about red tinted glasses on but if you think Tarkowskiis any good you need some glasses or if you have them they need a major upgrade just like Everton on Tarkowski who is a defender from the dark ages awful. But if that’s what you want for your club enjoy relegation battles every season.

{Ed025's Note - im actually a fan of his grino, plays with his heart on his sleeve and gives 100% every game mate, give me him over an accident waiting to happen like Joe who when he is actually fit is always prone to the odd howler..

24 Jan 2024 16:36:51
Cheers for that Ed. Looking back, in retrospect, he was one of the many players sold at that time way too early.

As you said, so clever and intricate. Didn't need speed, just controlled the attack.

I was same as you, a bit young to understand how things worked at that time, but was that one of the things that fecked us up in the early Premier League years?

24 Jan 2024 19:47:47
I am with you Ed I idolised Barnes growing up and damaged the hallway walls too many times for my parents liking trying to pass like him
Beardsley was a big part of my early support for Liverpool, for me a under the radar type player who was extremely good with the ball and a team player.

24 Jan 2024 18:11:49
@SR, says the guy who had the "prolific finisher" Neil Maupay starting for his side in addition to the "PL legend and defensive stalwart" Yery Mina starting at CB, as well. Ed25 is hilarious, you got to admit, lol.

And one last thing @Ed25, none of your back four nor front players would make the stands in the Kop on game day at LFC either so I guess we are even, right?

{Ed025's Note - never heard of Jarrad Branthwaite then Oli? he makes VVD look like Matip mate..

24 Jan 2024 20:25:28
Ed025 the years we won the champions league and league Gomez was outstanding. Last season he was awful and it took him a long time to recover from that awful injury and to be fair to him he has has a few but this season the more it goes on the better he is looking. As for Tarkowskiis Ed come on mate his a very limited defender that gets nowhere near the top sides in the league that’s why you got him for nothing and nobody else wanted him. Branthwaite Looks like a player though who I would like at are club for the future think him and Quansah both look like future England cb.

{Ed025's Note - Tarks is not as bad as you think grino mate..

24 Jan 2024 21:05:27
Branthwaite shows a lot of promise but he's got a long way to go. None of the rest can hold a candle to Joe Gomez. Not even close.

{Ed025's Note - this love fest for Joe wont last very long Flash, i have seen it all before mate, he will either get injured or make a few costly mistakes and it will be "get rid of him hes a liability"...its not as if it hasn,t happened before..

24 Jan 2024 21:05:40
Ed001 As for the first question I thought Beardsley was an outstanding player and up there with one of the worst manager decisions ever to sell him and replace him with dean saunders truly the start of the end of out dominance. I have not clue what Souness was thinking with some of his transfers.

24 Jan 2024 21:52:11
Late to the party, sorry. Beardsley was fantastic and I was gutted when he was sold. As close to Dalglish as any one I’ve seen, if memory serves, I am knocking on a bit though.

24 Jan 2024 22:11:36
Tarkowski is a wingnut with those ears Ed.

{Ed025's Note - he has got big ears VV, still waiting for Noddy to pay the ransom mate.. :)

25 Jan 2024 07:32:05
It’s not about where Tarkowski keeps his heart, it more about hoping that one day they unearth his brain.
