Good morning everyone. Really looking forward to Ed001 match review.


1.) 17 Dec 2020 20:23:29
I hope he talks about Moanrinho's living obviously in an alternative reality.

2.) 17 Dec 2020 21:34:12
I know England has a fair few bad pundits, but listening to ESPN's coverage and people like Craig Burley saying "Klopp is annoying me" and "I don't care if it annoys people, I like watching Tottenham more than Liverpool" are enough to drive me up the wall. They make the case that if Bergwijn finishes his chances its 3-1. what about all of the chances we had that went literally right at the goalie? Salah on his right foot scuffing it? Mane drilling the crossbar? 11 shots on target to 2; 17 shots to 8? 74% possession? 813 passes to 254? Sure, someone can make a comment about Klopp not making any subs, but who was he going to bring on? Ox and Keita who are literally not fit? These pundits live in Mourinho's world. I have watched Tottenham several times this year and get no joy from it. They set up to play exact as we expected and got punished for it when they took their best player off the pitch.

3.) 18 Dec 2020 00:26:04
Craig Burley and Richard Keys hate us. They are horrible individuals that get to stay on air knowing their words cause controversy.

4.) 18 Dec 2020 05:24:34
the talking heads can do my head in sometimes. well, actually, the writing fingers on here can do my head sometimes too hahahaha

each to their own tho. Some people laud the pragmatism of Mourinho's style. We were mature and lucky enough (we should admit) to ride the waves and eventually come out on top.

5.) 18 Dec 2020 14:41:07
I don't enjoy listening to football pundits. I find commentators to be really annoying. In my view they spoil the occasion. I would much prefer to watch a match with just the crowd noise. No commentator. No pundit. No idiotic and pointless statistics. We aren't we allowed to just watch the game?

6.) 18 Dec 2020 15:48:38
I just watched the game in full again and just don’t get it. Tottenham basically set up to defend and Liverpool completely dominated the game. We could have killed it off with decent finishing while they were basically limited to 3-4 key moments, while we dominated midfield and created at least a dozen good opportunities. I also think if Son had been subjected to the same scrutiny as Mane vs Everton, he would have been offsides. No question at all in my mind, the better team won.

Special mention to our midfield who were imperious, Bobby Firmino who was brilliant, Robbo who has been my player of the season so far, and Rhys who did an excellent job on Debut.



20 Sep 2020 20:45:03
Why was Henderson taken off?


{Ed0666's Note - injury

1.) 20 Sep 2020 20:59:00
Oh thanks Ed.

{Ed0666's Note - no worries mate hope you enjoyed the game.

2.) 20 Sep 2020 22:11:26
I think it was just precautionary (tight thigh they said on commentary) but also the perfect scenario to introduce Thiago’s skill set to the game.

3.) 20 Sep 2020 21:25:53
I was worried before the game I must admit but 10-15 minutes into the game I started to relax a bit. Now the sending off did of course help us no question there. I was really interested in watching Timo play and plenty of pace but would he suit our style of play? I definitely think we need more cover at CB even tho Fab was just fab.3pts in the bag Ed0666 and extremely happy mate👍😁.

{Ed0666's Note - Yeh I said earlier I’m not sure Werner would have suited us and I stand by that. He’s phenomenal in a counter attacking side. Buying a CB is imperative mate as fab can’t be expected to pull out that type of center back display as an auxillary consistently if god forbid he had to. It was also telling that even tho Matip & Gomez didn’t play Billy the kid wasn’t picked so clearly Klopp doesn’t feel he’s ready to step up.

4.) 21 Sep 2020 07:57:14
I believe Billy was injured according to an injury update on the LFC website so Klopp may still consider him adequate cover.

{Ed001's Note - he was.}

5.) 21 Sep 2020 08:00:13
Was gomez injured? Seemed odd to not even have him in the bench if so.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

6.) 21 Sep 2020 08:14:09
I thought fabinho was excellent at cb to the point that I’d like to see him there every week. He reads the game well makes great interceptions great tackles and good in the air. Add the fact that he can play a bit as well and I think you’ve got a perfect partner for VVD there. Held his own against a very good Werner on more than one occasion. Thiago with the exception of the challenge for the penalty looked exceptional, I’ll be honest I didn’t see the need for him as we have plenty of midfielders but in 45 minutes he proved with almost every touch of the ball that he’s a different class. Playing with a swagger of someone who has won everything and wants to win more. Liverpool at times looked in a training match just keeping possession and probing for Weakness for long stages. Chelsea miss pulisic and ziyech and will be a different prospect when they’re fit however Liverpool went to a team that want to be contenders and made them look average for 90 minutes. A very good squad developing now with cover across the pitch.

7.) 21 Sep 2020 04:15:21
So we’re all talking about a CB, but Eds, do we know of any actual solid interest in any? I’m hoping you won’t say Carlos.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything different to what has been discussed I am afraid.}

8.) 21 Sep 2020 10:36:44
Fab has a mean streak in him, as a DM this is okay, but not as a CB. The risk would be too much.

{Ed025's Note - hes your second best centre back after VVD for me xpertoyin, reads the game very well and kept werner quiet yesterday which is not easy mate..

9.) 21 Sep 2020 10:49:20
I agree Ed025. Gomez is a very good young centre back but Fabinho is just better in every defensive department except recovery pace. He even holds the offside trap better.

{Ed025's Note - he has something better than speed HMB, he has speed of thought, reads the game very well which although hes young gomez fails on imo, just my opinion though mate..

10.) 21 Sep 2020 11:03:48
Was just going to say the same thing Ed. I thought he was exceptional and I think what I liked most was how well he read the game and his calmness with bring the ball out of dangerous situations. With regards to Thiago, I was also one that didn't see the need to go for him but wow, what a player. He strikes the ball so well and effortlessly finds a red shirt. I'm very excited to see more of him in midfield.

11.) 21 Sep 2020 13:25:55
As they say Ed025, the first 5 yards are in your head.

{Ed025's Note - dead right mate..

12.) 21 Sep 2020 13:39:02
I hope we don't sign a Cb think Gomez and VVD are a great pair big games like yesterday Fab can cover with the lower end clubs the young lads can cover if Matip and Gomez are both out. If I could sign one more player I would rather we get better cover for Alisson as Adrian proved last year in the fa cup and champions league he is not good enough.

13.) 21 Sep 2020 07:47:56
Think klopp said billy had a knock too.

{Ed0666's Note - thanks mate

14.) 21 Sep 2020 16:31:38
Can I ask who is Billy the kid? Haha.

15.) 21 Sep 2020 21:42:05
Gomez is far better than Fabinho at centre back.

I'm ok with Fabinho providing cover but no way would I agree with Fabinho actually being better than Gomez as a center back.

Excellent yesterday but if he playing there regularly I think he'd be caught out (lack of pace and strong but a bit clumsy so I think he would give away a fair few penalties) .

16.) 21 Sep 2020 23:14:18
Fabinho played superbly vs chelski. id be happy to see him there, maybe Tiago and Hendo infront of him. Would allow Keita to play slightly further forward. Or maybe play Bobby in a "10" role, move Mane inside, play Jota left channel and keep Salah down the right channel. Either way, and more, we've signed some great players in great deals, giving us a chance of retaining the title. Come on REDMEN. YNWA.



29 Jul 2020 11:57:38
Why did Liverpool not sign Harvetz? Was it lack of money? Or were they even interested in him?


{Ed002's Note - No money and not a player Liverpool looked to tap up.}

1.) 29 Jul 2020 13:40:13
Nice little jab there Ed, you’re quite partial to those. I’m pretty happy with the championship winning midfielders we have right now, so I guess we’ll have to look at tapping up a center back that Klopp so desperately wants?

{Ed002's Note - The statement is correct.}

2.) 29 Jul 2020 16:56:27
Everyone Liverpool look at were tapping them up. I now we’ve done it in the past but surely it’s not every transfer we’re looking into Ed . that would be worrying.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool did not speak with RBL about Werner. Liverpool have not spoken with Bayern Munich about Thiago.}

3.) 30 Jul 2020 07:03:30
It seems apparently every player Liverpool are genuinely interested in signing is being tapped up by the club according to some people.

4.) 31 Jul 2020 10:55:53
For me I’d like to see williams play more at rb and taa in cm I’d like to see jones get more playing time too. I feel like gomez and VVD have a great partnership and would like to see sepp or hoever more involved in first team games. The biggest concern for me as a fan is our chance conversion rate. Also the lack of options outside the front 3 . Our first team is excellent I hope to see Naby play more and get more goals next season. Pressure of 30 years no league is gone I hope they can push on and play with some more freedom. LB and cf the positions I’d like cover for maybe try playing Minamino a bit more too.



05 Jul 2020 14:45:29
Victor Osimhen is/ could there be money for him if JK listens to this scout?


{Ed002's Note - No Barry.}

1.) 05 Jul 2020 14:59:30
I don’t see the fuss with Osimhen, he needs about 6 or 7 shots to get a goal and more often than not his efforts end up in the keepers hands or in the stands. Can’t see what he offers that we don’t already have in Origi in terms of being a big quick target man. Other than filling Lille’s coffers to the tune of £70m and us not getting a £70m player, surely we should learn from Arsenal getting mugged off over Nicolas Pepe?

2.) 05 Jul 2020 21:52:06
Sorry for the badly worded question Ed002 but at least you understud it mate and thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - No problem Barry.}



29 Aug 2019 23:20:29
Is Lovern all but gone Tris?


{Ed001's Note - all but gone? No, he might well leave but nothing has been done yet. No offer has been acceptable so far. Plenty of time yet though.}

1.) 29 Aug 2019 23:54:31
Looks like Roma have got Smalling instead.


2.) 30 Aug 2019 00:39:51
With Roma seemingly looking like they are getting smalling I'm guessing they have ended their interest in lovren?

3.) 30 Aug 2019 06:30:26
Jeez, they must have been desparate, Smalling is an awful footballer.

4.) 30 Aug 2019 17:00:46
I'd suggest Lovren is staying after what Klopp said today i. e. we had four CBs last season and still had to have Fab do it due to injuries and that they will ALL be needed again this season.

5.) 30 Aug 2019 18:55:25
If we want to challenge for all the top honours you need 4 capable CBs over the course of maybe 50/ 60 games. Be a huge risk to let him go, just 1 injury immediately leaves us bare at the back. Lovren is far from perfect but as squad player for backup with his experience there aren't many CBs around with better quality as a 4th choice. 1 more year and then let him choose his next club if he can't hold down a regular spot for us.

This time last year matip was in his position but took his opportunity to claim 1st team spot. Competition is strong in CB and let the young lads have another year of development before we prematurely rely on having to use them.

6.) 30 Aug 2019 20:42:13
I really don't understand all of the negativity about Lovren. I know he's had a few bad games but he's a very good defender.

If we get an injury or two and he gets into the team, I'd put money on him doing a Matip and keeping his place (injuries permitting, of course) .

When he gets his chance, he knows what he needs to do to keep his place. He's seen it with his own eyes.

{Ed025's Note - hmmmm..

7.) 30 Aug 2019 21:35:49
One thing that has been clear is lovren looks much better beside VVD, as does matip and Gomez. Yet matip and lovren are poor together. The key is when they have a leader, someone to organise and talk beside them they look much better. Lovren and matip don't show those qualities.

Like Ferdinand and vidic were such a good pair as they complimented each other's strenghts.

Henchoz looked good with hyypia leading but put henchoz beside matip for example and they would struggle.

You need the right pairing to suit your players strengths. Lovren and matip have had a much better performance level over the last 18 months with virg than anytime previous.

8.) 31 Aug 2019 23:46:28
For once I’m with Ed25 on this. Lovren is not a very good defender. He’s a decent 4th choice but one that you hope you never have to use.

9.) 02 Sep 2019 00:34:12
{Ed025's Note - hmmmm.

why hmmmm, what are you insinuating ed025 . He is a Liverpool player so must be very good . an earlier post put Matip as one of the best CBs in the world, Lovern is not far behind if not even better, world cup and champions league finalist . The red shirt automatically turns you into the best in the world, remember Djimi Traore, a champions league winner.

{Ed025's Note - you sound like redwolf roy, now i know your very tongue in cheek here but matip has done very well to be fair to him mate..

What's the story with Carlo's son? Is he a waste of oxygen?

All good here in a very sunny Welsh valley Barry! Looking forward to the Euros mate, we were in Ibiza when Spain won the Euro 2012 and the fireworks and celebrations were amazing, always had a soft spot for the Spanish so can’t wait.

Just not looking after myself as much as I should mate. Drinking too much, eating not the best if I’m honest.



30 May 2021 00:26:40
Do you think lad's that Pep was being way too smart for his own good?


{Ed0666's Note - I think it’s a case of if City would have won he would have been hailed a genius but consequently he’s being besmirched for it. Let’s face it he’s not had a bad career and i for one am glad he plies his career in England.

1.) 30 May 2021 05:19:35
He’s an incredible coach but definitely too smart by far - why start a team you’ve never started together before, with no defensive midfield cover, and also removing your most visionary player (De Bruyne) from being able to run the attacking play?

Chelsea were worthy winners in the end and far more balanced thanks to Kante (someone who I still wish we had in our side) and were better for having Werner as a focal point going forward.

2.) 30 May 2021 05:16:22
Oh he bottled this one ed, barry. He big time bottled this one. He is a great coach and of course his teams are a joy to watch but yesterday he bottled it.
But by god kante what a player!

{Ed0666's Note - I have to be honest I didn’t watch the game. I was getting a manicure! The last thing I wanted to do was watch rivals win the champions league.

3.) 30 May 2021 09:56:16
I'm with you Ed0666 I never watch rivals in any final.

{Ed0666's Note - i don’t understand why anyone would mate?

4.) 30 May 2021 11:26:31
Getting to a CL final and losing should be placed in it’s specific context- when LFC, Spurs, BVB and Atléti got there, they outperformed their resources, so it should still be regarded as a phenomenal coaching achievement

When you have the most expensive squad ever, you have to win

I think this tweet I found, sums it up perfectly. Let’s be real, as highly as I rate pep, he’s basically playing football manager, he’s never really needed to sell his best players to work within the means of what the club generates, he’s just playing monopoly. I know they aren’t solely on their own in this regard, but they are the worst perpetrator of it, and bottle it in the most prestigious club competition time after time. Pep will get another 3-4 players all worth £50m+ to do the same thing next season, so the narrative of him being a genius continues. He is an elite football coach, but he will never be respected in the same way some others will be, because he’s had everything handed to him.

5.) 30 May 2021 12:22:26
I got so irritated with his after game interview. The man had just lost the ultimate game, the event he's been hired for, and there he was smiling and talking softly with his usual "sophisticated humility" all covered in smugness. No doubt he's one of the best if not the best. But the worst thing is always when one knows he's the best. It's almost like he tries to re-invent the game at these big events and thinks he can get away with it.

6.) 30 May 2021 12:46:19
He’s not as good as he’s made out to be and when you look at the teams he’s managed you realise how his reputation has been hyped up unjustly. Was fortunate to manage a ridiculously talented Barcelona team with prime Messi at its heart, a Bayern Munich team miles ahead of their domestic rivals (and still managed to make them regress under him), and City who have unlimited funds and no qualms about using said funds time and again. Any manager would have success in these circumstances, damn I reckon even I could get the Barcelona team he managed winning stuff! His goal at City has been to win the CL and he has failed time and again and a lot of the time his tactical approach has been at fault. Wildly overrated in my opinion - give him a job where he doesn’t have the best players and/ or huge sums of money and see how he does. Or put it another way: if he was our manager the past few seasons I don’t think he would’ve won the league or CL.

{Ed025's Note - "pint of bitter for seano".. :)

7.) 30 May 2021 14:17:03
Kman92, makes brilliant points and I agree with all of them. Pep was brought in to win the CL and has been given every single piece of resource especially financially to get it done. The fact that it took him this long after 830m spent on players alone, to get him there this season after 5 years is a disgrace on its own but I’ll let that one go.

Let’s face it where he at Real Madrid he would have been sacked well before now for not winning the CL after spending the equivalent of a country’s national budget on players. That much we know cos the proof is out there with the way they treat managers who fail in Europe. Then here, he literally tried to outsmart the opposition and he ended up outsmarting himself and left his midfield open for a monster like Kante to feast on instead of playing Rodri or Fernandinho to add some bite. That is Pep’s cross to bear.

Now does that mean City would have won had he played these players? No but it would have given them a better chance. Frankly, the guy plays monopoly and Footie Manager with real money and real players like Kman92 stated so expect another 150m this summer to blow on players cos well, it’s what “football geniuses” do, init? Nothing bitter about stating the obvious, btw.

8.) 30 May 2021 14:26:08
just curious Ed025, why is what seano written bitter? I don't think it is at all, it's his opinion and he's not the only one with the same view. my view of pep isn't as extreme, but i get where seano is coming from. not arguing with you, just curious why you think that.

{Ed025's Note - im afraid its the old liverpool jealousy rearing its ugly head again stone, it used to be fergie who got it in the neck when utd were the top side but now its pep, abramovich has got the treatment before and now its mansoor because they have more money than liverpool, you are not the only club who do this by the way but its not very becoming mate..

9.) 30 May 2021 15:58:19
Good to see you back Ed025, I don't mind a bitter but am a bit more partial to a good IPA. Yeah rereading my post back it does come across a little bitter, I still maintain though Guardiola isn't quite as amazing as he's cracked up to be.

{Ed025's Note - i think he is top class seano, and cheers mate..

10.) 30 May 2021 16:11:44
Manicures, Iphones! Your fanciness knows no bounds 666 mate.

11.) 30 May 2021 16:06:43
It was shocking Ed - no CF to make runs in behind and stretch the defence, so Chelsea could just push up, compress the midfield and cut down the space for the 17 attacking midfielders Pep tried to squeeze into the starting squad.

James put Sterling in his pocket, Mahrez was well handled by Chilwell, and so City were pretty toothless both through the midfield or when they our wide, and they looked vulnerable on any turnovers because there was no Fernandinho or Rodri.

I know it’s easy to say in hindsight but I just don’t get what Pep thought he was doing. If he really wanted to reinvent the entire game strategy, why do it in such a massive game for the first time?

KISS is the acronym that comes to mind.



28 May 2021 14:37:18
This site is gone to hell Ed001 was very late with his Southampton match review and now he can't see into the future. Standards are truly slipping on here.

Barry, we still have some regular mind-boggling questions and posts. Doesn't that count for something?
