Ed do you know of any interest in Daniel Sturridge from around the world. I miss seeing him kick a football to be honest….

BigVirg

{Ed0666's Note - He spends a tonne of time in LA producing his music and is keeping in shape in the hope of getting a contract. I would hazard a guess his top flight career is over. Lower ranking MLS or Championship team at best. Jeez Louise what a world class striker when fit and firing on all cylinders. Love the guy for the respect he shows our club to this day.


1.) 17 Jun 2021 20:02:12
Fair play, hope he gets in somewhere, MLS would be a good idea tbf. He's always been a class lad and was gutted he got injured. I still remember that 90 minute goal Vs Chelsea a few years ago.

{Ed025's Note - waste of space if you ask me, absolute piss taker in his last few seasons and spent more time on the treatment table than the pitch RH..


2.) 17 Jun 2021 20:05:01
100% Ed!


3.) 17 Jun 2021 20:12:24
He should try to get a move to one of the LA sides. They tend to be given a tonne more coverage in the American general media than the other MLS sides do so it could be good publicity for his music over there in the future. Probably couldn't expect to be a designated player though.

I have a personal theory that the reason Zlatan went to LA Galaxy because he wants to be in movies in the future.


4.) 17 Jun 2021 21:35:46
I agree with you most of the times ed025. This is one time I wish I didn’t. So much potential he had. Amazing threat when he wanted to be.

{Ed025's Note - no doubting his ability mate, but could have been so much better if he had a heart or the desire....but he never..


5.) 18 Jun 2021 09:48:36
What could have been eh. Fantastic talent.


6.) 18 Jun 2021 11:56:35
Injuries clearly didn’t help and held him back but in his last couple of seasons he was a joke, he put in less effort than Ballotelli at times.

{Ed0666's Note - He was a bit of a hperchondriac but some of the abuse of him is unwarranted. Maybe he didn’t always give 100% due to him thinking his body was gonna breakdown but he was always loyal and respectful.


7.) 18 Jun 2021 14:53:00
You can’t compare Sturridge to Balotelli, that’s not fair. Balotelli never did anything in a Liverpool shirt to remotely suggest he was a footballer. Sturridge had a horrendous time with injury.


8.) 18 Jun 2021 15:08:38
Certainly wouldn't compare him to that joke overgrown baby Balotelli! Even at his least effective Sturridge was in a different league to that clown.


9.) 18 Jun 2021 19:11:11
Comparing him to balotelli is just idiotic. Did you even watch both players?


10.) 19 Jun 2021 13:11:06
I haven’t said they're the same in terms of quality and what they did at the club as Sturridge was great in his first few seasons but the last few he was woeful and his effort levels were none existent. Maybe it was based on his fragile body but if he wasn’t up to it he shouldn’t have been on the pitch. He’d just let balls go by him if he thought he couldn’t get to them, chased nothing, I barely saw him sprint. Exactly what Ballotelli did.
Also saying he was respectful and loyal I would say should be a given with any player (although often not the case), especially one who was nearly always injured, contributed next to nothing to the team in his last 2/ 3 seasons and was on a big wage that wouldn’t have been matched if he moved on.

{Ed0666's Note - there is no evidence to suggest he was a bottler. If I saw Studge in LA I’d go over and give him a hug I’m not so sure I’d do the same with Naby or Balotelli.


11.) 19 Jun 2021 13:30:01
Are you allowed to hug strangers in LA? You’d get told off for doing that here!


12.) 21 Jun 2021 00:43:26
Oh God Ed0666 imagine we got a player called Naby Balotelli😭.

{Ed0666's Note - then I’d hug the top half and leave you to the bottom…half 😂


 

 

10 Jun 2021 10:16:58
Linked with Pedri, for £70m. I think we must have found a money tree in Stanley Park last night. Ed, reports of contact being made, nonsense I guess?

BigVirg

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have turned down a significant bid from elsewhere. I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool.}


1.) 10 Jun 2021 17:53:27
No way Barcelona sell Pedri. Got loads of deadwood to get rid of besides him. Great player though. Would assume they will be building their team around him and Fati.


2.) 10 Jun 2021 18:05:23
Waits for the Ed do they not owe is us money from the pipco deal 🤦🏻‍♂️🤣.


3.) 10 Jun 2021 23:23:31
Pretty sure at this point Barcelona owe me money for the Coutinho deal.

{Ed002's Note - When Pipco was sold Liverpool borrowed the entire debt and spent it - and paid significant interest and will have to repay any sums that are not going to be paid - £5M if sold this summer.}


4.) 11 Jun 2021 00:25:38
Thanks Ed, I guess is that common knowledge or publically available what you just said or is that what you have found out independently?

Just curious because that’s a crazy thing to know.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained it over and over since it happened.}


5.) 11 Jun 2021 07:35:33
Me too Thunderbird, me too.


6.) 11 Jun 2021 07:57:02
Southern Red, it’s been stated in Barcelona’s financial account for at least 2 years now so why the media insist on recycling the story every few weeks I don’t know. Whatever happened to research….


7.) 11 Jun 2021 10:46:45
The details of the Coutinho deal (and the fact that Barcelona do not owe LFC directly any money) have been posted here, at least 20 times. And 1 out of 20 media outlets has published the right details (LFC factoring the Coutinho sale) too. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack, when you go looking for accurate news.


8.) 11 Jun 2021 11:41:23
More like looking for hay in a needle-stack actually. Because it's painful reading some of the nonsense "journalists" and "pundits" come out with today.


9.) 11 Jun 2021 12:41:32
Johnny my comment was specifically around interest and penalties for outstanding sums, I am aware of the factored portion that was shown in our financial statement.


 

 

28 Apr 2021 12:41:20
Linked with Callum Elder in the papers. Embarrassing that a club as big as Liverpool should be linked to a young left back from Hull!

BigVirg

1.) 28 Apr 2021 13:06:54
Worked out horribly last time ;)


2.) 28 Apr 2021 13:13:28
Careful there, it's hard to detect sarcasm.


3.) 28 Apr 2021 13:25:45
Ha ha ha
Love that BigVirg.


4.) 28 Apr 2021 13:43:20
:D :D

I'm sure there's plenty who won't get the humour, BigVirg!


5.) 28 Apr 2021 13:46:09
This can't be real unless they plan on only playing him in cup games.


6.) 28 Apr 2021 13:54:23
where did Andy Robertson come from? just saying,

and he would be home grown.


7.) 28 Apr 2021 14:19:16
He's 26, not exactly young. For reference, Robbo himself is 27.


8.) 29 Apr 2021 12:42:49
He’s no Bozo Texino. Not even a Snoogy Doogie.


9.) 29 Apr 2021 14:49:52
Robbo had PL experience. Elder was a regular for one season in the Championship before going to League One. This rumour seems like nonsense.


 

 

01 Feb 2021 21:46:53
Minamino to Southampton. Good move IMO, hasn’t had a chance at us and will learn the premier league more in a good attacking side.

BigVirg

1.) 01 Feb 2021 21:54:51
Would much rather have him than Origi.
Know he didn't cost much but I just feel like if he goes now then he'll likely move on for good in the summer which is a shame.
I like the guy!


2.) 01 Feb 2021 21:56:44
Does this explain why he hasn't had a look in recently? Trying to avoid injury if a loan was on the cards. Hope he does well.


3.) 01 Feb 2021 22:01:23
Yeah could be good for the lad. if he actually gets a game for the saints. Not convinced by what little we've seen of him, but hopefully he proves me wrong and comes back more confident and hungry.


4.) 01 Feb 2021 22:02:49
How he's fallen behind Div and the ghost that is Shaq i don't know. Sometimes i think we buy to sell for a profit, after a little improvement .


5.) 01 Feb 2021 22:04:04
Hopefully goes a little bit towards repairing our relationship with our feeder club as well.


6.) 01 Feb 2021 22:21:55
It would be nice to get some of those billions back we spent on Southampton players of the last few years.


7.) 01 Feb 2021 22:24:39
The ghost that is Shaq? I completely agree on Origis case but Shaq?


8.) 01 Feb 2021 22:28:55
No brainer if someone was interested, especially a team like Southampton. Feel good factor around them at the minute, good football and will be interesting to see how he links with ings. Guaranteed games I expect and he should come back stronger.
Club must be confident jota isn't too far away where he'd fall even further down the pecking order.
Plus any sort of loan fee will go towards our outlay. Smart business all round I think.


9.) 02 Feb 2021 08:02:37
Wish i could pass cross field like a ghost.


10.) 02 Feb 2021 11:17:35
Ya Shaq is going through a good patch at the moment. He has looked lively and been creative, not amazing or anything but he has been playing well.

Ed001, have you done any articles on Puskas or plan to atall? I have just heard he turned out for South Liverpool for a game and had an astonishing goal to game ratio. I feel I should know a lot more about him than I do!

BigVirg

{Ed001's Note - like this one or his player profile?}


1.) 16 Jul 2021 15:24:26
Lovely stuff, will dive in.


2.) 17 Jul 2021 08:51:55
Very sad reading about his later days. When you already think Madrid are scumbags and then read about their Puskas “fundraiser”!


 

 

18 Jun 2021 20:10:02
Ed, your post about Messi earlier got me thinking, was there a player in the 70s or 80s around Europe who had the pull of power that Messi had at their club where they virtually made decisions on signings and style of play. One that comes to mind is maybe Maradona at Napoli? Or was football back then a lot stronger with their hierarchy as not as much money in the game?

BigVirg

{Ed001's Note - players had a lot less power then.}


 

 

18 Jun 2021 14:46:50
Ed’s - Fabinho has only made his 6th EVER start for Brazil last night which has blown my socks off. He would get in almost any midfield in the world, yet players such as Paqueta and Fred get a game ahead of him. Is he massively under appreciated in Brazil in general or just by Tite do you think?

BigVirg

{Ed002's Note - It is simply the utilisation of players.}


1.) 18 Jun 2021 16:11:54
he is usually displaced by casemiro who is better player. But yea he should be player over fred.

{Ed001's Note - Casemiro is not better, he just plays for Real Madrid so is worth more to the sponsors.}


2.) 18 Jun 2021 16:49:41
Akira, you are having a laugh, right? Casemiro is nowhere near Fab's quality, as a DM. Not even in the slightest, IMO. Rash in the challenge, poor positional play, a complete head case and a booking waiting to happen.

And don't for once think he is better cos he starts ahead of him for Brazil cos we all know that Brazil pick their teams not on who is on form BUT who the sponsors want. It's been that way for 25 years.


3.) 18 Jun 2021 17:23:46
Perhaps England should start picking players that the sponsors want. They might actually win a trophy then 😜.


4.) 18 Jun 2021 17:38:35
I guess Nike still pick the Brazil team then?


5.) 18 Jun 2021 19:06:30
Bias aside Casemiro is an excellent player.


6.) 18 Jun 2021 21:53:30
Bias aside Fabinho is a better player than Casemiro.

{Ed014's Note - absolutely, not even a question!


7.) 19 Jun 2021 00:32:33
Casemiro was better than fabs over the 2 games we played Against Real. All these international managers can’t be wrong all the time. Allison has now been dropped, Firmino also didn’t start for Brazil and rightfully so. If you have a crap season there will be consequences.

{Ed0666's Note - how comes Mane still gets picked for Senegal then?


8.) 18 Jun 2021 19:42:10
Ed1 I have always heard that Brazil team is picked by the sponsors, are the managers not strong enough or is that part of there contract?

{Ed001's Note - it is just money, their sponsors pay huge sums and Brazilian football needs it, so managers have to learn to work with it.}


9.) 19 Jun 2021 16:34:10
Nah casemiro is better than fabinho. Its not by miles but he definitely is better player out if two and fernandinho who is didn't mention us better than both. So fabs doesn't get a look.


 

 

04 Jun 2021 08:13:53
Florian Wittz looked incredible for Germany u21 and surprisingly the first time I’ve heard about him. With the risk of getting ‘wrong paged’ is there any interest from Liverpool or any other major European team? What a talent.

BigVirg

{Ed002's Note - There is no point asking about random players on the Liverpool page.}


1.) 04 Jun 2021 09:54:31
I had never heard of him, but just signed him for Liverpool in football manager. And then immediately loaned him to arsenal for the season. You heard it here first!


2.) 04 Jun 2021 09:55:38
The Eds must be at their Wittz ends.


3.) 04 Jun 2021 11:14:02
Feeble. Very.


 

 

28 May 2021 09:18:51
Ed’s Konate has played very few games the last 2 years, what are the main reasons we aren’t too worried about his fitness and injury record when shelling out so much money do you think?

BigVirg

{Ed001's Note - how on earth can anyone know that?}


1.) 28 may 2021 10:26:41
look into your crystal ball!


2.) 28 May 2021 10:36:20
You should know ed1, you are meant to know everything, damnit ;) .


3.) 28 May 2021 12:06:07
I don't know much about Kanate, does he or Gomez for that matter, have the skillset to backup Fabinho if needed?


4.) 28 May 2021 13:18:41
I'm worried about it. It just seems a hell of a risk adding yet another, currently, injury prone player.

I just feel we needed to add a cb who had managed 38 games this season.

I honestly wouldn't be as worried if Gomes and Matip weren't as injury prone as they are.

Now we have vvd returning from an acl and something always follows an acl.

Matip - back, ankles, hips. The guys falling apart.

Gomes - acl, ankle, shin and what not.

Konate - hip and muscles. Only managed 75 games in 4 years. Spent something like 300 days out injured.


5.) 28 May 2021 13:42:34
I’ve had to dig up games in which konate has played in order to briefly make a judgement on him. I’m personally not all that sold on him being the second choice CB we’ve all been craving for to finally make a world class partnership with VVD. The lad is young and has a lot of potential but I just don’t see him as a £35m defender right now, and I think for that figure or close to that figure, there are probably better options out there, I think the main reason why he costs that much is because of his age and upside potential, not because of his current ability. I hope the recruitment team proves me wrong and he ends up being a world beater and I’m not slagging anyone off before anyone says it, I’m just providing my own opinion on him. I guess moving forward, vvd konate Gomez and Phillips should be our 4 options at CB, I’d loan out williams and as highly as I rate matip when he’s at his best, he’s just another seriously injury prone player we need to do without. With konate coming in, I think that’s our business done at CB, I just hope it’s enough.


6.) 28 May 2021 13:44:51
KingKlopp96, neither Gomez nor Konate are injury prone. High impact injuries like the ones Gomez and Konate have had do not make you injury prone. Consistent niggling knocks and consistent muscle injuries like the ones Matip and Naby have or Studge used to have, are what make you injury prone. Big difference.


7.) 28 May 2021 13:50:37
@KingKlopp96, like Ben Davies who had played 19 league games for Preston when we signed him in Jan? Players can get injured at any time due to a combination of bad luck or underlying issues.

The medical team will have extensively tested Konate. Liverpool wouldn't sign him unless they were satisfied with the medical.


8.) 28 May 2021 13:42:24
Wait a minute, Ed01. You cannot see the future? Rats! I was just going to ask you if you had the winning lottery numbers for this week. I guess that's dead in the water now. Sad.


9.) 28 May 2021 14:05:43
Look mate I tnk we shd just be happy vvd didn't break his knee entirely due to Pickfords tackle. usually acl does reccur but I don't tnk vvds that kind of one. besides he is not being rushed. that's crucial . we have what? now 8?9?cbs at the club?

It isn’t even a debate that Harrison is better than Wilson. Like he said, if Harrison was Welsh he would probably be on 50 caps by now.

I’ve said this a few weeks ago. People are simply judging Renato by his shocking Swansea loan spell, when he was a child who lost his way. Since then he has been vital to Lilles title win and Portugal’s central midfield and has shown why he was signed for so much money by Munich.

Everyone who is claiming he is a bad player is still looking at him when he lost his way at Munich and has a shocking spell at Swansea. He was ridiculous as a kid and has now grown into himself. He has been brilliant the last 2 seasons and was one of the main reasons Lille won the league alongside the Turkish striker. He seems to have found his confidence back and is showing it on the international stage.

Ed, any reason why Saul has fell down the pecking order for both Atletico and Spain? Simeone and Enrique both don’t seem to fancy him anymore.

BigVirg

{Ed001's Note - no idea, I didn't know he had, but he won't get picked for Spain if he is not playing for Atleti. If I had to guess why Simeone is not using him, I would say it is probably because he wants to move.}

Kabak makes zero sense if Konate is coming. Phillips 4th choice means we would have 4 solid centre backs.

JKH you mustn’t watch Mctominay enough, he has 9 yellow cards in nearly 100 appearances in the premier league for United. That is actually very low for a player in his position. He uses his strength and winning the ball well I reckon.

Probably because the overpricing has worked wonders in the past. £24m for Sakho, £28m for Benteke, £12m for Allen, £6m for Brad Smith, £15m for Ibe and £19m for Solanke to name a few! The board are probably stuck in their ways because of them!
