BRover, I do agree with you, there are several players in the PSG team who are arguably too good for the French league. Neymar knew the standard of football there before he signed. He and his father were more interested in money than sporting ambitions. I am sure player power will get him out of there though.

What do you mean player power? Do they not want him there?


2.) 21 May 2018 23:14:58
I have wondered about mbappe if he will ever reach his potential playing in the French league. I think one of the eds has said he may well end up at Madrid, but he needs to be tested.


3.) 22 May 2018 00:08:02
I think it was more a list of predictions than anything, definitely not a list of done deals.

I understand the Chelsea/ Werner deal is agreed in principle. Seems to me Liverpool can also make a sensible offer for Werner if they wish.
If Liverpool are not prepared to pay the asking price, then good luck to him at Chelsea. Should have just paid the asking price after tapping Werner up, maybe Liverpool will in the end.

Glad you understand 👍.

We played cheap politics and paid the price. Expect a retaliation from Mr Klopp If he wanted him bad! I am happy it ends like this. At some point the club needs to learn a thing about conduct.

Ed's, Can I ask your opinion on how highly you rate Mo Salah. Having just read about his goal scoring and assists record on the bbc website, he really is an outstanding talent. In fact he is up there with the very best.
Comments in the media about Salah being under appreciated by the fans, myself included as I've moaned about his greediness, contradict what he does on the pitch. I think Salah is in the top 5 attackers in world football and I've changed my mind on on him, as previously I have not given him the credit he deserves for some reason.
It will be extremely difficult to replace his goals and assists when he does finally leave. let's hope we get 2 more years from him.

Greenflash

{Ed001's Note - he is a fantastic player. It is not just his goal scoring, it is that he draws defenders to him. He creates space for other players too.}


1.) 08 Mar 2020 11:11:12
Thanks Ed, I do try mate. :)


2.) 08 Mar 2020 11:21:28
He is deceptively strong and is never really injured. 20+ goals in 3 consecutive season. He is a wonderful player and one of our best in the modern era.


3.) 08 Mar 2020 12:06:34
Salah is in the top 3 attackers in world football, let alone top 5. One of Liverpool’s best ever signings.


4.) 08 Mar 2020 12:24:21
if he gets 20 league goals this season he will be the first Liverpool player to do that since Sir Rodger hunt. his running in behind never stops so he never gives defenders a minutes rest must be so hard to concentrate for the full game without switching off for a minute.


5.) 08 Mar 2020 12:44:10
His first season probably set too high a standard and expectation, he was phenomenal. Now he's not been as prolific in the goal stats, it was always going to be difficult to replicate the number of goal he scored we don't take into account the other ways he influences games.

As good as he his, I still don't think he's our best player though.


6.) 08 Mar 2020 12:58:41
Super player,2nd only to Shearer in the Premier League era after a hundred league games. i'd actually like to see where he'd be on the list for assists for the same period, I'd imagine he'd be right up there. doesn't seem to get the same love as Sadio and Manè but the guy is a phenomenon, not just on the good days but also on days like yesterday where he never hides but instead demands the ball over and over and over again. forever hungry for goals, and that shouldn't be looked at as a bad thing.


7.) 08 Mar 2020 13:45:52
Exactly my thoughts, occupies 2 or 3 players at once, loads of goals, second only to De Bruyne on assists and so strong on the ball. I think he probably is world class and it will be a sad day when he leaves. I've read plenty of times here, that if Liverpool were to lose 1 of the front 3, then they would choose Salah as he can be replaced easily. Good luck trying to replace his goals and assists.

{Ed001's Note - yeah I don't know how you replace any of them. The likes of Werner are different players and it will mean the whole side has to adjust.}


8.) 08 Mar 2020 16:37:06
Grino did he not nag his 20th on Saturday?


9.) 08 Mar 2020 21:38:56
Mo Salah is a world class, international super star. He needs no introduction. His numbers are phenomenal over a 3 year period and he is not even a cf, which is a true testament of his immense talent, ability, mental toughness and desire to improve and be the best. I would not trade him for ANYONE.


 

 

26 Jan 2020 21:38:06
Don't know what the fuss is about really. Liverpool rested their entire 1st team, gave returning players like Lovren, Matip and Firminho vital minutes and the youngsters gained experience too. We are still in the cup and if we play the same starting line up again at Anfield we will win.
The replay is not ideal but it was a cracking cup tie and all credit to Shrewsbury who will hopefully make a few quid from it. The most important thing is the league and I was happy to see a changed 11 today.

Greenflash

1.) 26 Jan 2020 22:34:34
Looks like the replay will be the same team minus Minamino, Matip, Lovren, Origi, Fabinho, Adrian. So basically just the kids. looking forward to it!

Ed02, With the crazy transfer fees and wages for top players, is it becoming a real possibility that a big European team could be wiped out permanently by overspending?

By that I mean current successful teams and well known Euro teams such as Inter and AC Milam who are not the forces they once were.
Are clubs taking huge financial risks in the hope of getting back to the top table of European football? Thanks.

Greenflash

{Ed002's Note - Inter resolved their financial issues - Milan have other problems. In terms of vast spending and wages clubs are constrained by FFP and commercial income so the chances of it happening should be reduced. Clubs like PSG and Barcelona have to balance the books.}


1.) 03 Aug 2019 18:52:57
What about anzhi makhalahla*? I remember they spent big money one year only to seem to need to offload everyone asap soon after, was that an example of a club who's expenditure put them into big trouble? I don't know what their current situation is.

{Ed002's Note - No, Anzhi is not an example.}


2.) 03 Aug 2019 20:21:28
Aye i didn't really have a clue how they operated to be fair, seemed like they had a naive strategy anyway.


 

 

23 Nov 2018 15:53:56
Ed01 I noticed Edo2 has mentioned Liverpool making some questionable buys in Fabinho, Keita and Solanke.
What are your views on the 3 players to date. I personally do not think Solanke has any chance of making it at Liverpool, but I think it is early to judge the other 2 players as questionable buys. Thanks for any input.

Greenflash

{Ed001's Note - Solanke looks a poor buy, Keita has shown some questionable temperament so he has a lot to prove but Fabinho looks ideal for us imo.}


1.) 23 Nov 2018 16:18:04
I personally think Solanke needs a couple of loan moves. He has the talent that's for sure. I think he should have gone up north to Rangers and built up his confidence playing in front of big crowds and scoring a few goals in the senior ranks. After which a loan to a mid table Premiership team to see if he can cut it. To leave him in the under 23's is a waste I personally feel. Just like we wasted Ward. We should have left him at Huddersfield for a year's experience in the Premiership and then judged him. From the players we have out on loan only Wilson looks like he stands any chance of making it. Grujic was meant to be playing well before his injury but I think both will struggle for any real game time.


2.) 23 Nov 2018 16:38:53
I still think solanke has potential to add something different to the team. I thought he was effective end of last season against Brighton as a classic target 9 in the box allowing Firmino to drop deeper and create havoc as a no.10. Having a true 9 also meant Salah and Mane could create the width against a packed defense knowing someone dangerous was ready to pounce on a good cross.

Solanke is much better than Origi in the air and with time could become a physical presence in the box when that is required.

Keita I firmly believe will make it as he has the ability to press, great tackler and has ability to carry the ball and score goals. Still have high hopes for him.

Fabinho I really like too, just needs to get used to the system and pace of the league.

{Ed025's Note - is there anyone you dislike or dont have high hopes for SG?..


3.) 23 Nov 2018 16:38:08
Thanks Ed01, has Keitas' temperament been a problem since arriving at Liverpool or do you mean when he was in Germany. Bit of a concern for Liverpool if he still has a bad attitude. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - when he was in Germany. Don't worry.}


4.) 23 Nov 2018 17:43:54
When Keita first come he showed glimpses of brilliance.
I don't know if he is slow coming back from knocks or whatever but more recently when he's been in the team all he does is give the ball away.


5.) 23 Nov 2018 18:19:51
Keita will prove to be a top signing, some players just take a little longer to adapt that's all, he'll come good and when he does we're laughing. Imagine a fully in form Keita, Fabinho and Hendo? that's what I'm looking forward to and it's coming.


6.) 23 Nov 2018 19:30:44
Keita to me will prove a great signing. Henderson can't string games together. Fabinho I haven't seen anything yet to suggest he should make the first 11. Fabinho looks slow and not strong enough for his size. Next season will be the best time to judge him.

{Ed001's Note - he is not slow, that is why he was able to play well at right back previously. Full backs need to have a fair bit of pace in the modern game.}


7.) 23 Nov 2018 19:51:38
I still remember him from pre season (maybe in wasn't fit) pulling 2 caravans trying to chase the Man City youngsters. He looks one paced similar to Milner or Henderson.


8.) 23 Nov 2018 20:25:23
You’d dare risk Fabinho at full back Ed?
He’d get skinned alive, for me.
Keita I have hopes for, he started so promisingly but then hasn’t lived up to that standard as yet.
Fabinho I’m really not sure of.
I know it’s very early but he doesn’t look any more mobile than Can, so far anyway.

{Ed001's Note - I didn't say that, I said he played there in the past.}


9.) 23 Nov 2018 22:03:43
How fickle us fans are (me included), rating players after a handful of games. Keita has barely played due to injury, Fabinho hasn’t pulled up any trees but hasn’t put a foot wrong in the games he’s played and looks to have started to settle. I think had Salah not come in and had the debut season he did we wouldn’t have that high bench mark to compare them to. I for one still think fab and Keita will prove to be very good signings.


10.) 23 Nov 2018 22:22:27
I don't really get the immobility comments. He's a big guy, but he gets around the pitch well and looks comfortable with the ball. I would suggest he's been the better of him and Keita, but i have no doubt Naby will smash it after a run of games.


11.) 23 Nov 2018 23:30:08
Keita will be a star and fabinho is starting to show glimpses of the player we expected. solanke for me I just don't think will ever make the breakthrough to the first team on a consistent basis. I hate to say it but I don't rate him at all. i really hope I'm wrong but I never am. ask the wife.


12.) 23 Nov 2018 23:53:45
I can see Solanke's career trajectory being similar to Harry Kane's, and it might well take a number of loans before it clicks. I hope so anyway! I just hope he is still with us. You'll have to wait 6 years for me to be proven right though.

Markp08- you should read Ed001's article on Fabinho. You keep saying it yourself- he *looks* slow, but he's actually not, it's his running style.


13.) 24 Nov 2018 03:37:27
I’d agree that the bar has been set high for Fabinho, partly by Salah last season, but also by his counterparts in our rivals teams - specifically Fernandinho and Kante / Jorginho.
You may think that’s unfair, and you may have a point, but that’s the harsh reality.
He was bought for the First XI of a team challenging for the league title and European Cup.
Fabinho doesn’t start for me, at present, it’s Hendo / Milner or Keita / Wijnaldum.
He’s currently 5th choice by my reckoning, if the others are fit.
If Ox was fit, he’d be 6th choice. Or, to put it another way, I’d rather have Hendo or Wijnaldum at the base.
And that wasn’t what I was wanting to say back in August.
We’ll see what happens though, he’s not a write-off by any means but got a lot of convincing to do?


14.) 24 Nov 2018 07:05:12
I don’t see Solanke ever breaking into the Liverpool first team as a regular. I also don’t see how anyone can say he’s better than Origi in the air. Origi bullied Borussia Dortmund and Matts Hummels in the air and has scored some great headed goals - something Solanke struggles with (scoring goals) .
I think he will be sold to a team like West Brom and ditching Origi in favour of Solanke looks like it’s thrown his LFC career down the pan.

Not worried by Fabinho or Keita - give them a season to settle in 👍.


15.) 24 Nov 2018 07:48:51
to use Jorginho as a comparison is slightly unfair yes he’s moved to a new country but he’s also followed a manager who he’s played under for about 4 so knows his style inside out. You say Hendo starts I think we sometimes forget how his career at Anfield started and now he’s club captain.


16.) 24 Nov 2018 13:10:12
Excuse me but did I miss something? How long has Fab and Keita been here that suddenly they are being called a flop or questionable signings? Also, people may say that Fab is being judged harshly based on how his team mates have slotted in nicely or how some players at our rivals have bedded in nicely. Sorry, I don't understand any of that.

Football is not a one size fits all sport nor are it's outcomes equal in all ways. It takes more or less time for players to get going depending on the situation and circumstances and anyone with any type of knowledge of football knows or should know this so why are people acting as if those same rules don't apply to Fab and Naby? Let me remind people that it took Ilkay Gundogan SIX months to get to grips with Klopp's system at BVB so let that sink in.

People seem to forget that it took Salah a while to settle in and become the beast he is now and took Ox, Robbo even longer so again, where's the beef? . Please, let us not cede to panic and impatience and cynicism. Let the boys develop and support them through their progression and surely, they will pan out fine. Why? They were great players before they came to us.

That is some team to look forward to next season with those 4 additions. Can the Bolton kid arrange for the transfer of Lautaro Martinez too, I'm sure Klopp can squeeze him in somewhere, maybe play a 2-8 formation.

Nothing against Juventus, but why would the worlds best defender drop down to the Italian league which is clearly inferior to La Liga and the Premier league. Real Madrid or Barcelona maybe, but not Juventus.

I don't know what's the biggest joke, that rag of a paper or just £150 million for Van Dijk.

Informative Ed002, your description of Salah on his holidays still makes me laugh. Who knows, maybe this year Salah will excel himself by fighting the fires in Australia or removing all the plastic bags from our oceans, surely that would get him his dream move.

Summed up perfectly in 1 sentence Ed02. Even if Liverpool had the money, blowing £80 million plus on a 29 old with no sell on value would be a terrible investment.

Harry is great for the site and I'm glad he is back, he's a regular contributor who always provokes a lively debate. Reading this thread with the input of Zoom V2 aswell, has brightened up a miserable Monday morning.
As for Danny Ings, the reason he is now playing well is playing time, which has finally got him match fit after serious injuries. He never would have got the vital minutes he needed at Liverpool as there was no way he was being picked ahead of Firminho. Ings moved to the right club who could guarantee him playing time. If Ings moved back to Liverpool tomorrow he would be back on the bench.

Harry, it was me who mentioned Wijnaldum, Ox etc, I never said Ox and Wij were similar to Lo Celso/ Fabregas and Cazorla, I simply pointed out that Liverpool have plenty of midfield options. Have you ever considered that Klopp may not want the kind of players you crave and his judgment is far superior to ours.
Fabregas would not get into this Liverpool team anyway, out of the 3 you mentioned, only a fit Cazorla is good enough.

Harry, do you post on other teams pages about how great Wijnaldum, Fabinho and Henderson are. This midfield is part of the best team in world football currently. Lo Celso has been ok for Spurs but he would not get into the Liverpool team. We also have Jones, Keita, Ox and maybe Grujic, so Liverpool don't really need more midfielders. They need to move some players on.

The best teams always find a way to win, remember Man Utd and 'Fergie Time'. I would be gutted watching lucky Utd win yet another match in injury time, when I felt they should have lost or drawn. But Man Utd won because they were the best and kept going to the last second.
Liverpool are the same and the games that they have won by 1 goal, is not down to just luck but being superior, as they always have more possession and create more chances than the opposition. All teams need luck with injuries as they are all affected by losing their star players.
