Just read about our supposed interest in Pedro Brazao. Anyone know if its concrete or just rumours?

IDreamOfGini

1.) 04 Feb 2020 16:54:41
Pedro Brazao (LW/ RW) Nice have confirmed that they have been approached by Sporting and Bayern Munich to enquire after the kiddie but are concerned that two other sides have made an approach to a third party "representing" the player. As the player is under aged, they are obliged to formally record these concerns in writing to the FFF - as payments to third parties for underage players are not allowed (this is what has caused the UEFA investigation in to Manchester City over payments made for Jadon Sancho) . The player has been advised to stay where he is and develop.

Amazing insight you have, Davey, but it doesn’t really answer my question about interest from Liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - What Davey said is absolutely correct.}


3.) 05 Feb 2020 11:36:51
So im guessing Liverpool are not one of the two other teams?

{Ed002's Note - OK.}


4.) 05 Feb 2020 16:53:32
I have an awesome source 😉.

The best is always to search first, OP.

Out of interest, will a place in the proposed Euroleague significantly raise the values of the clubs involved?

IDreamOfGini

1.) 19 Apr 2021 14:02:28
Value is a function of current and projected revenue streams. If the clubs' revenues are not projected to increase and therefore increase their value, then they have no business going along with such proposals or even being club owners.


2.) 19 Apr 2021 14:08:21
Isn't it obvious.


3.) 19 Apr 2021 14:26:49
Just read that each club will receive 3.5 billion euros on joining so i guess that answers my question.


4.) 19 Apr 2021 14:46:53
Guessing money will come from sponsors and tv or streaming rights, money only guaranteed if the fans watch the matches.


5.) 19 Apr 2021 15:14:38
It's upto the fans to not show any support with their money. Imagine if no season tickets were sold next season and stadiums were empty in protest. That would show these plastic owners what the fans think of the plastic league. I'm disgusted.

{Ed002's Note - That is certainly not going to happen.}


6.) 19 Apr 2021 15:55:33
The money comes from an investment bank loan from J. P. Morgan as far as I'm aware, it will need to be paid back, the figures involved appear to be astronomical.

{Ed002's Note - Of course it has to be paid back - they will guarantee $5.5 billion against future income against x% interest.}

Looks like Trent may have booked himself a summer holiday at home this year. TBF he was hung out to dry by Keita not helping him out in the first half but TAA didn't cover himself in glory either. Looks like Madrid singled him out as a weakness early on.

IDreamOfGini

1.) 07 Apr 2021 08:40:14
OP, if our press was not as useless and disjointed as it was last night, TAA is not hung out to dray. I do agree that the second goal was a shambles from him. I think he just did not know where he was unfortunately.


2.) 07 Apr 2021 08:49:20
He got skinned three times by vinicius he's a dreadful defender buy brilliant everywhere else I can't see why people think he's a rb when he's clearly b2b.

{Ed001's Note - Vinicius has the skills to skin any defender, but you seem to have missed the times his defensive nous and working back saved us from conceding certain goals in your desperation to slag off an excellent young player.}


3.) 07 Apr 2021 09:02:57
Trent saved the side several times in the second half but in the first half he was turned inside out, hence the mistake he got flustered.

{Ed001's Note - I think he slipped as well, he clearly had the wrong studs in the first half and was struggling to stop or make turns. It was a bad header anyway, going the wrong way, so it probably wouldn't have mattered if he didn't slip. But watch when he rushes to close down Vinicius the first time and Vinicius just goes past him because he can't stop, like he is running in socks on a vinyl floor. Jota was the same. The pitch was dry and the studs were obviously not digging in.

What bothers me is that no one on the staff takes account of these things, because this is not the first time a pitch has caused us issues to adapt. How has no one noticed in the warm up that the players footwear is wrong? Why have the tactical instructions not been adapted to help cope with pitches? These are minor issues that can make a major impact, and we have been inconvenienced by them a number of times, why has the club not sat down and looked at it? This is something the match analysts should be pointing out post-match. They should be seeing this and presenting possible solutions to ensure it doesn't happen again.}


4.) 07 Apr 2021 09:09:03
Trent had two moments in the game where i feel he was poor. First was when he shanked a cross field pass out for a throw in. Second was when Mendy beat him by the corner flag too easily. Neither cost us. Although Vinicius should've done better with the header so Trent did get away with one. It was a weak challenge.

What i cannot understand is how anybody who has played the game can blame him for their 2nd goal. It was pretty much entirely Keita's fault. Kroos was 2 yards from him and Keita not only watched him play the pass, but made an active effort not to even block the passing lane. He literally pulled up as if he was scared of it hitting him.

Now in that situation when you have a player of Kroos' ability on the ball, the defence are damned. Trent actually spotted the danger and dropped with his runner. He had to head the through ball because his man Vinicius was tearing through behind him. The whole problem started with Keita. After that poor pressing though Robertson needed to react quicker to go back with Asensio who ended up scoring, and Kabak/ Phillips were both caught ball watching and had barely even started running back before it was in the net.

How anybody can blame Trent there is beyond me. He is literally the only man who reacted to the danger and he would need a tekecopuc beck to head it in any other direction. What should he have done? Left it to Vinicius? He was hung out to dry by Keita and nobody else reacted to the danger and even got near to the ball.

Jota was the same for the first goal by the way. Kroos was about 4 yards away and had his head up looking for runners. Beyond me why a normally industrious player like Jota made no effort to close him down.

Klopp tells the defence to hold a high line. The way we counter a ball in behind us supposed to be with the front 6 pressing the opposition. Last night they let Modric and Kroos dictate the tempo. Wijnaldum and Keita were as bad as any player i've ever seen in a Liverpool shirt last night. They made no effort to engage Modric or Kroos when they had time, and i don't even recall either of them playing an incisive pass all night. Milner and Thiago must've been wondering what on earth they did wrong against Arsenal to warrant being dropped for those two clowns.

I hope that is the end of Keita's Liverpool career, and thank god it's nearly the end of Wijnaldum's. The one thing you cannot excuse is a lack of effort. To be over run by an opposition midfield whose combined age was over 100 years old, is just embarrassing. At least Thiago and Fabinho got about them and snapped into a few tackles with some actual conviction. Gini shouldn't be anywhere near that captains armband. He disgraced it last night.


5.) 07 Apr 2021 09:43:24
Couldn't agree more MK, when does Klopp ever take off a man in the first half? that's surely Naby gone now and Gini was woeful for me, I don't take with all this looking tired malarkey either, other clubs are playing well who have had as much football as us.
We started with virtually zero creativity in a game where they had lost both CB's and had an ageing midfield, it was a complete lost opportunity from start to finish.
As for Trent, I feel a bit sorry for the lad If I'm honest, he had no cover whatsoever and was expected to then affect the game going forward? how? Keita was so invisible it was madness, that's as well as Gini jumping out of at least 4 meaningful tackles in the first half alone.
We all know that Nat and Kabak have done well up to press in a bad time for us and yes they were exposed a bit last night but I don't really see how we can hang those two out to dry either, they both made some good last ditch tackles and just the same as Trent were not helped by the midfield being non existent, I won't be impressed myself if Fab ends up at CB again.
Klopp's been weird this season, it's like he's got the jigsaw but for the life of him can't see the pieces right under his nose, we currently have a handful of players who we know just do not fit so why not play the best/ strongest team from now till the end of the season and see what gives, all this changing players has damaged us at times and with minimal games left I don't see what serious harm it would do.
As for Shaqs wig, least said the better lol!
Onwards
YNWA.


6.) 07 Apr 2021 10:18:35
It was a very poor header from TTA; there's no other way of describing it. You can't blame Keita- as bad as he was- for TTA's header.

Putting aside the emotion of yet another home loss, i didn't see a lot of what people are complaining about.
Theres mass criticism of our 'useless' defence and players not being arsed and downing tools.
Our defence did a job last night, even though it was makeshift. Fulham scored one goal that, except for Salah's dawdling, was impossible to defend against. No defender was at fault and they otherwise kept a clean sheet.
I also thought we matched Fulham for energy and commitment, especially once Fabinho was introduced. I didn't see players downing tools. Even Shaqiri was running around like a nutter at one point.
Our biggest issue, as it has been for the past months, is penetration and finishing. We get the ball to the wings but the crossing is poor or there's noone in the box. The chances we have in the penalty box are not getting buried. My favorite player, Mane, has been abysmal with his finishing and Salah has to constantly deal with 2 or 3 defenders at a time when he gets the ball.
Its no coincidence that we have scored only one penalty at home all year and numerous games have ended with just one or two attempts on target.
I see the work rate and the commitment from the players to change our slump but, for me, the problem lies more with our forwards not making runs and finishing chances, than poor defending or lack of energy.

Fulham didn’t need to attack once they had scored. The game followed the last few. Go one nil down and the opponent sits back and wins easily. Fabs made very little difference but why only give him 13 minutes.

{Ed077's Note - coming back from injury, isn't he?


2.) 08 Mar 2021 08:06:35
We didn't match Fulham for energy. Or pace. Or quality.


3.) 08 Mar 2021 08:42:35
The lineup should have told you all you needed to know. Not sure why people are surprised, really.


4.) 08 Mar 2021 08:42:37
As soon as you see a midfield of Milner, Keita and Wijnaldum you can just as well presume that a defeat is on its way.


5.) 08 Mar 2021 10:45:37
Bit off topic, but a question for Ed001 - what do you think of Lookman? He's looked fairly dangerous whenever I have watched Fulham this season. Do you think he has what it takes to play for a bigger club?
Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - I always liked him to be honest, I thought Everton had made a great signing when they got him from Charlton. I am very surprised he never made it there. He is good enough to play for a bigger club, but maybe he is just happier and settled in London, as he went through a difficult spell with RBL before the loan.}


6.) 08 Mar 2021 10:48:15
I disagree Rigsby. We matched Fulham but were let down by poor supply and finishing whereas they were gifted an advantage of playing against a very poor RB. Most their chances came from Neco getting skinned.

New image uploaded to the
Liverpool Player Sightings page entitled, Any referees care to explain why this isnt handball?

IDreamOfGini

1.) 05 Mar 2021 07:53:58
It was never handball in my view and I’m pleased that VAR saw it that way too.
We weren’t good enough on the night, full stop.


2.) 05 Mar 2021 08:09:27
We were shocking mate, Klopps subs were shocking, why bring Milner on to chase a game when Keita is on the bench.

{Ed077's Note - because Keith is sh1te. You never got the player you payed the big bucks for. His head was so much up his own backside that he still can't see anything other than dark.}


3.) 05 Mar 2021 08:13:50
Ed77 you bring Milner on to sure up a game and protect a lead, I am not saying Keita is amazing but makes things happen.

{Ed077's Note - when has he actually shown enough for you to say that? I don't watch Liverpool religiously like you guys but most of the times Keith is one of the worst players on the field when he plays, regardless of how the team is playing.


4.) 05 Mar 2021 08:19:49
Milner at least brought some direct energy he was pressing their centre backs whilst others trudged around.


5.) 05 Mar 2021 08:27:16
MR, i agree with you that Klopp messed up last night but Keita? Which Keita cos the one at RBL no longer exists? The version we have now is an imposter and should b the first player we bin off come the summer.

Alright people, if there's one game we can be confident about it is the next one versus bottom of the league Sheffield United.
I feel we can pull a 1-1 draw out of the bag.

IDreamOfGini

1.) 25 Feb 2021 08:09:27
Dont even care now. I just hope the players are there for each other in these tough times. Its a very hard personal time for the players and manager who have lost dear ones.
Others who are injured.
Just want the club to stand together and be there for each other
Football and Winning or loosing doesn't even matter now.


2.) 25 Feb 2021 09:10:30
Of course it matters if we was flying you wouldn't say that.


3.) 25 Feb 2021 09:36:51
It always matters. These are indeed trying times but all the more reason for trying to bring a bit of joy to peoples lives, if only for 90 minutes. A Liverpool win always leaves me on cloud nine for a day or so and distracts from the perpetual doom and gloom around us at the moment. c'mon the reds!


4.) 25 Feb 2021 11:10:10
With you there, Akrubbish. Not arsed anymore at this point.

Neither Salah or Mane were as prolific before they played for us. Its Klopps team and system that allows players more opportunities. Im sure Sancho, if he came, would double his annual tally.

I agree with most of what you said, IR. Gini has been one of my favourite players over the past few seasons and an underrated midfielder. However, the Wijnaldum we have seen over the past few months has barely resembled his performances of the past few seasons. He has been slow, unadventurous and even lazy since October. he's shirked challenges and gone missing when the chips were down. Hence, the ‘head is turned’ criticism.
Best of luck to him in the future and he should be remembered as a pivotal player for us but he's soured his reputation a little in my opinion.

I agree, 025, a lot of LFC supporters would go and support other teams. It won't just be the great unwashed either - i would stop following Liverpool overnight if the new Euro competition were to be anything like the previous proposal, more out of moral disgust than anything.
Probably wouldn't affect Everton much but Tranmere would receive a huge influx of supporters almost overnight.

{Ed025's Note - i know a lot of reds IDOG and they all feel the same mate, maybe liverpool wont care as their money will be generated through television deals..

Depay’s ability to deal with Premier League football is questionable.

By your reasoning, ArAy, the Tammy Abraham of Liverpool may not be the Tammy Abraham of Chelsea. If Klopp and co are keen then he's good enough for me.

IDreamOfGini

{Ed077's Note - but are Klopp and co actually keen on him??

No point buying a player with a history of severe back problem where the only cure is the Spanish sunshine.
