Ed2 does Klopp still hold an interest is Sarr? And maybe a replacement for Mane?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - I think Ismaila Sarr will still be of interest to Liverpool but not as a replacement for Mane, Liverpool have Jota for cover there, but as an option to replace Mo Salah should he leave. I am not sure if he is top of the list or not. Remember that Harvey Elliott will also be returning.}


1.) 10 Apr 2021 12:08:23
I really have high hopes for Elliott he has shown he can be a useful option and seems to of grown hugely as a player at Blackburn. I think he will surprise people next season.


2.) 10 Apr 2021 12:50:53
Need to be careful with Elliot and keep him fresh, not overplay him.


3.) 10 Apr 2021 17:00:44
I’d be disappointed if we sold Salah and replaced him with Sarr. Salah is a 20 goal a season player, Sarr doesn’t have half that in him.

{Ed002's Note - He would not be the only option.}


4.) 10 Apr 2021 17:47:31
Cheers Ed, I’ll wait for the next sharkopod to find out who!


5.) 12 Apr 2021 06:25:57
Probably Adama Traore?


 

 

22 Mar 2021 20:27:58
Ed2 do you know if Liverpool are interested in Aaron Ramsey?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - Aaron Ramsey (CM) He may well have proven to be a reasonable Wijnaldum replacement at his best but those days appear gone. I am aware of an enquiry from West Ham - perhaps at the prompting of his agent but I am not aware of Liverpool looking to him.}


1.) 22 Mar 2021 21:46:48
I hope not, injury prone, ridiculously high wages, probably a daft transfer fee, the wrong side of 30 and has utterly flopped in a weaker league, let him be someone else’s mistake.


2.) 22 Mar 2021 23:25:40
Oh dear god I hope not! If it’s that bad, I will play for a few weeks - I’m rubbish, overweight and unfit, so a better bet than Aaron Ramsey 🤣.


3.) 23 Mar 2021 01:45:24
I think id prefer Gordon Ramsey.


4.) 23 Mar 2021 08:04:32
If that’s is sanctioned the Scouts need a boot! No more players with the bodies made of a Cadbury’s flake!


5.) 23 Mar 2021 08:18:30
I'd play Origi in midfield over Ramsey.


6.) 23 Mar 2021 12:33:11
A fully fit Ramsey would of been a quality addition but his injuries have taken the chance of that away, shame.


7.) 23 Mar 2021 12:44:46
Even when he was fully fit he was only a mediocre footballer at best. Juve have found out the hard way that he’s not very good, they’re welcome to him.

Hi eds as Gini agreed a pre contract with Barcelona?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - My understanding from an ex-PL player who is involved with Barcelona that there was, as of yesterday, at least a verbal agreement in place between the parties - if that is the case then lawyers will need to agree the formal pre-contract and everyone would need to sign it.}


1.) 21 Mar 2021 13:08:16
----------You are a moron-----------


2.) 21 Mar 2021 17:16:59
What did Hunter say?! Lol see ya Hunter! I wish Gini good luck, been a good servant and leaves with his head held high. Thanks for the memories Gini. I'll miss singing his song!


3.) 21 Mar 2021 17:38:08
It is what it is. Employee decides to get a job elsewhere. The main thing is recruiting appropriately to replace him.


4.) 21 Mar 2021 16:42:29
Who is and why?

{Ed002's Note - You are a mindless cretin - Liverpool and the players don't deserve supporters like you.}


5.) 21 Mar 2021 20:50:42
Good luck to gini in his next chapter. We move on as we always do.


6.) 21 Mar 2021 22:31:55
A shame to see him go but I know ed1 (who is a better judge of a player than me) has felt he plays within himself an awful lot. I’ll miss him wriggling out out having three men around him and somehow still coming out with the ball. Got some terrific attributes and rarely injured. Good luck to him, seems like a genuinely nice guy too. From relegation to champions league and premier league winner, will always have a special place in the history of the club which is no mean feat.

{Ed0666's Note - hey Gini moves on with my blessing he’s been tremendous for up until a few months ago. He’s a genuinely good human being does a bunch for charity and I think Barcelona need him more than we do.


7.) 22 Mar 2021 05:15:14
Damn. Time for a name change.


8.) 22 Mar 2021 09:25:33
Ed0666 in fairness to Gini, he’s been asked to play a midfield which has been completed decimated by having to play Fabinho and Henderson in defence, so I’m not judging him on that. Klopp got that horribly wrong.

{Ed0666's Note that doesn’t justify him being anonymous for most of the season and not putting in a shift.


9.) 22 Mar 2021 15:48:01
No amount of running around a lot can make up for technical deficiencies. He’s just not a defensive midfielder. Not his fault, just a fact of life.

{Ed077's Note - I had to check which page I was on lol. I thought this was a thread on Fred lol}


10.) 22 Mar 2021 17:33:47
The most used player over the last few seasons, starting on the subs bench only twice this season and even coming on both those games. Asked to play in positions clearly not suited to his game, playing continuously when a break was clearly needed while all his team mates were repeatedly injured. Yet not many made the excuses for Gini as the did for other players. Resorting to "his heads in Barcelona", "he's hiding during the game" etc etc
Its a shame that a player who has been relied upon by Klopp over the last lot of seasons more than any other player faced such unwarranted criticism but there you go.
I wish him the very best in his next adventure and can only hope that whoever takes his place wins the medals Gini has won. Well done fella.


11.) 22 Mar 2021 19:13:44
I wish him all the best won it all with us

Only flaw for me was his passing to pass it backwards or safely to be a world class player but him close controll will be missed.


12.) 22 Mar 2021 21:48:19
Absolutely nailed it there Irish.


13.) 22 Mar 2021 21:50:47
I totally agree with you IR.
I’ve always been a fan of Wijnaldum and he’s been crucial to Liverpool’s success over the past few years.
Underrated doesn’t even begin to explain it, particularly on this site.
But he’s been excellent value and good luck to the lad, I wish him every success.


14.) 23 Mar 2021 00:10:51
Gave us 5 years of loyal dedicated service, will be fulfilling the terms of his contract and you can't ask for more. I got frustrated with him at times, but once you look at the broad picture you'll see the professionalism and class he always conducted himself with. Why is it that so many others, who have done far less, get to stay but he doesn't? The team's decision I guess, and that's the way the cookie crumbles.


15.) 23 Mar 2021 01:54:09
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.


16.) 23 Mar 2021 13:01:33
I will miss gini, he's been a fantastic player for us and came up with the good when it mattered. But unfortunately our team is getting older, needs a bit of new blood and he probably doesn't get into our first choice midfield with everyone fit, a situation which will only get worse for him as Jones improves. He'll leave with love and blessings and the biggest medals in the world round his neck, all hard earned and well deserved.


17.) 23 Mar 2021 14:54:22
Cracking post Irish.


18.) 23 Mar 2021 23:16:23
Giní gave an awful lot over the last few years. The disrespect from some fans on here is a joke. Every player moves on, just thank him and be happy for his input and wish him the best. I'd swear some fans support rumoured players more than the players that have actually done something for the club.


19.) 24 Mar 2021 15:17:10
I'll never forget the feelings I had when he came on against Barcelona and scored 2 in 2 minutes to turn the game. He has done enough to be respected and wished well, anything else is nonsense!

Gini Wijnaldum: “It’s unbelievable, ” says Liverpool’s super-sub in an interview with BT Sport. “After the game in Spain we were confident that we could score four goals at home and win 4-0. I think people outside the club didn’t think we could do it but we have shown anything is possible. I was really angry with the manager and wanted to show him what I could do. ”.

Eds is Mini going to Southampton?

Kabak from Schalke we are trying to sign today as well as Davies.

At the end of the day any business as a legal right, to there shareholders to maximise the value of there business, and that's all FSG were doing right or wrong, ok they might of gone the wrong way about it. We need a product that sees the best teams play each other week in, week out, I don't want to watch Burnley v Fulham its none attractive and Boring, we need the best players playing against each other, we as fans go around smashing team buses and vandalise but to take the morale high grounds simply not right all the time.

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - They were looking for power and control at the expense of others. You can keep defending what they have done but all trust in them and the club has gone for now.


1.) 21 Apr 2021 14:52:49
Mighty Reds, this comment is a joke. Based on this season any game involving Liverpool sure hasn’t been a blast to watch either. Our owners have tried to ruin the game we love at the expense of others. They tried to close the door so no one else could get in. I am not going to waste my time explaining all of the reasons why this is vile, but our owners are at the heart of it.

I follow this team because of the ethos that defines it. It is clear that the owners no longer believe in that ethos and would rather spit on the past.


2.) 21 Apr 2021 15:03:00
Burnley v Fulham wouldn’t be boring to the supporters of those clubs. Clearly you are not a ‘legacy fan’, you are the sort of ‘consumer’ the ESL was hoping to appeal to.
Playing Real Madrid this season was fun in part because it happened for years. If Liverpool played Real Madrid twice a year every year it would soon get very boring.


3.) 21 Apr 2021 15:07:57
Given that there have been and there are similar other proposals to this one, being discussed at various stages, shows you unequivocally that this was a power grab. They knew that since their proposal was refused last year, they decided to make a last ditch attempt at that power grab now. Their "Hail Mary" throw that woefully missed the target.


4.) 21 Apr 2021 15:12:27
How are either of those things comparable issues of morality. On the one hand, you have the bottle throwing antics of one or two drunken hanger-on yobs. On the other, you have the total destruction of football as we know it, the gutting of working class communities all over Europe and the obliteration of 130+ years of history, all in the name of a quick buck.

You’re entitled to your opinion of course but i honestly have no idea what you’ve been seeing the past few days.


5.) 21 Apr 2021 15:04:48
From a business stand point, I understood what they were trying to do, but it was the complete antithesis of what football was built on. We’ve seen money completely corrupt the sport up to now but this was a major step in that direction, it wasn’t subtle at all, it was completely changing the model of how club football will be structured at the highest level. Let’s see how they would like it if you decided to completely change the structure of their beloved MLB or NBA and make it a genuine meritocracy with a promotion/ demotion type structure, will they not be up in arms? In fact I find it funny how they don’t just do what they tried to do with us, with their own sports franchises, put the lakers, Celtics, knicks, bulls etc all in a separate competition that would be competed all across the world, since they are the teams that have generated the most views and in turn the most money to the nba. I’m guessing that’s not a possibility legally but the point remains, how dare they try to taint our sport pyramid when they aren’t willing to take those steps with their own major sports.


6.) 21 Apr 2021 15:05:13
Mighty Reds

I always suspected you were a fool but this comment confirms it.


7.) 21 Apr 2021 15:56:08
MR, sorry but I do not agree. The fact that you roped in the LFC fanbase on the smashing of buses and all that is reprehensible in it of itself BUT I digress. The owners can want what they want and that is fine for them. What they have done is try to enforce what they want at the expense of those who actually make football what it is: The fans, the community and so on which are at the very heart of the sport esp in England. They did this to themselves and have no one else to blame BUT themselves. On that front, JWH is correct.

They already tried this with Project Big Foot and it failed miserably and they were already warned. They chose to do this even after that so they have learned nothing from their own history hence, they were doomed to repeat it. This has nothing to do with a better "product" or any of that mess. If they want a better product on the pitch, they know what to do. And if you don't like Burnley vs Fulham games, do what I do: Don't Watch!


8.) 21 Apr 2021 16:04:29
The best product in cricket is the ipl because the best players play in it, same as the nfl, we need the best players playing against each other more, what happened with Salah and Ramos, Salah should of been able to get his own back sooner not 2yrs down the line, its about stories and drama.


9.) 21 Apr 2021 16:05:43
Take the red tinted glasses off OP.

{Ed0666's Note - it’s the OP’s permit I’ve to advocate for the owners no matter how flimsy and idiotic the defense argument is


10.) 21 Apr 2021 16:15:33
If I remember correctly one of the most intense and emotional moments I’ve seen in football was Man City’s last minute title winning goal against QPR. How about our 06 Cup final thriller against West Ham? Are we saying that actually it wasn’t very good because it wasn’t Barcelona or Real Madrid? Absolute rubbish being spoken sorry Mighty Reds. Just sounds very elitist.


11.) 21 Apr 2021 16:20:12
Mighty Reds, what a selfish kn*b you really are. You don’t want to see Burnley coz it’s boring for you, but Burnley and there’s thousands of fans who pay the same to sky and bt sports as everyone else do want to see them. Complete muppet you are.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m greatful you stopped at muppet as I didn’t want to have to censor you’re post mate 😂


12.) 21 Apr 2021 16:29:41
Nobody gives a monkeys what happens in other sports mate, football is different and the liverpool fanbase is especially different. Too much of our game has already been taken away from us, we need to be reversing the damage of the last 30 years not diving headfirst into further overdrive capitalism. Only then will we have a competitive, engaging product.

{Ed0666's Note - technically not true woolback. I love MMA, squash & cricket and I dearly care about what happens in those sports. I understand football/soccer is tantamount to religion for some but there are other beautiful sports out there that people enjoy. I agree that the Liverpool fan base is a different breed spiritually, politically tho.


13.) 21 Apr 2021 17:12:39
The most emotional moment was city's title win? Mate the most emotional moment involving city in modern football was when they got done at Wembley by an already relegated wigan for the fa Cup. Which ironically leads into the discussion about how important it is that everyone has a chance, realistic or not etc.


14.) 21 Apr 2021 17:25:41
How arrogant can you get. “I don’t want to watch Fulham v Burnley” Well here’s the thing it’s not about you.

Talk about disrespect and self entitlement.

As for smashing up team buses. No that’s not fans. That’s scum. If you lack the brain capacity to understand smashing a bus up in the name of a game of football then you have no affiliation with true fans of any club.


15.) 21 Apr 2021 17:42:18
Hjikle please try to read posts fully before commenting and looking a tad foolish. Of course it’s subjective hence why I said “one of”. No worries it’s been a stressful few days.


16.) 21 Apr 2021 16:37:21
One thing I would say is that pre-C.V. Burnley vs Fulham wouldn't be televised.

It is harsh on those fans as they don't get to watch there team unless they are near enough to go to the stadium or use a stream.

I would like to see if there was a way to make it profitable and allow all games to be watched even when fans are allowed back in the grounds.


17.) 21 Apr 2021 16:45:07
We need the best players playing against each other more, not playing meaningless games getting injured, the product needs improving, firstly by reducing the Premiership to 18 teams, calling me a muppet and all that, I didn't know you cared so much about me stand but cheers pal.


18.) 21 Apr 2021 16:51:45
Oh no i’m not speaking from a place of sport snobbishness, all sport is a wonderful thing for the human race, just that comparing the running of our beautiful game to the running of organisations in the USA is an absolute nonsense. Ethics and community are irrevocably tied into the foundations of our clubs, whereas American sport is riddled with the same repulsive logic that many americans apply to every other socio-political issue.


19.) 21 Apr 2021 16:55:18
Woolpack I get called all the names under the sun, but you don't give a monkeys what happens in aby other sport, really? Morale high ground for you?


20.) 21 Apr 2021 18:13:04
Anonymous Woolback, you g=fail to realise that for teams like Man United and Liverpool, most f their fanbase is now abroad. Most of it has never been to the UK and will never come to the UK. Just like Gary Neville said, imagine 150m Chinese paying just £1 a week to watch Man United on stream. That's a guarenteed income of £150m a week, every week, for 8 months of the year.


21.) 21 Apr 2021 18:58:55
Many of us foreign fans don’t want the super league either. I don’t know one person here in the U. S. that wasn’t disgusted by the super league proposal.


22.) 21 Apr 2021 16:57:29
Ed0666, I am a huge fan of the NFL and the NBA as well and like you, I do care about the health of other sports too, not just football which is my first love.

{Ed0666's Note - my first love is Meghan Fox shame that’s not reciprocated so I’ll have to make do with LFC & Eds 001


 

 

20 Apr 2021 08:35:20
UEFA and FIFA are corrupt from top to bottom. Premier league and sky only care about money. These organisations have treated players like commodities. FIFA extending the club world club, UEFA adding stupid tournaments like Nations league or conference league. They keep adding games without thinking about the impact on players. And then sky and premier schedule games without considering the players' rest or recovery time.

Players in elite clubs have to play the most because they usually play in Europe and national teams. These elite clubs have to bear the cost for injured players. And when C.V. happened, all the organisations did nothing. They offered no solution, no help to these teams. They went on with the international matches during a C.V.. And now the media propaganda is in full flow just because their pockets are about to get lighter. MNF's recent episode is suddenly free on youtube. Sky will be the first one to bid for Super league's tv rights. These organisations have been milking off the success of the big clubs.

Considering all this, it makes total sense for these clubs to break off and form their own league. But surely a solution could've been reached that did not treat the fans this way. They did not consider the "legacy fans" at all while coming up with this proposal. The owners have not even come up with their statements and managers have to deal with the press. Klopp should not have been in that situation to answer those questions.

I don't think it will be difficult to get the players on board with this Super league. The management will surely pretend that they have the players' interest at heart and they can play less games while earning more money. It's just a fight between a bunch of greedy corrupt individuals vs a bunch of greedy individuals who will be corrupt in the future and fans are the ones who are losing.

Mighty reds

1.) 20 Apr 2021 08:46:02
Great post mighty - agree with all of this.
UEFA and FIFA and their Crocodile tears on football getting corrupt would be hilarious if not so pathetic.


2.) 20 Apr 2021 08:59:34
I think it's really important not to get issues conflated here. Firstly, although the conduct of governing bodies has been poor during C.V., this has been something they've been working on for at least 5 years and is nothing to do with C.V.. Secondly, although there can be little doubt that uefa and fifa act in a way that actively harms the biggest clubs on a regular basis to line their own pockets and treats the welfare of players like commodities, most clubs are no different - and if you disagree with that statement all you have to do is ask yourself 'why did it take until 2020 for clubs to push for and secure concussion subs, and why were clubs even talking about the potential for abuse while doing it? '. They are not doing this because they want to protect their players from pointless friendlies and frozen pitches in dead rubber ties, they are doing this to lock down their section of the pie. And while sky and bt might harm players rest times with their TV schedules etc, as has been pointed out many times the clubs agree to them because they want that sweet TV money.

We're in a world where more or less everyone is the bad guy, everyone wants your money and no one really cares about you while they pitch ways to take it.


3.) 20 Apr 2021 09:02:13
With you totally MR.

People need to stop and think for a second. It's better for the general debate and also the blood pressure.


4.) 20 Apr 2021 09:31:57
MR, the players are screwing just as much out of football as the others, they employ the agents who charge the joke of a fee, they get free clothing, we pay £60 + for a warm up trackie they throw around, they have sponsors etc. The only people who are suffering are the fans.


 

 

19 Apr 2021 14:28:26
We as fans demand money being spent on the team, we demand the best players, the best players demand silly wages, if the super league is going to afford these players then for me its one big merry go round and us as fans need to take the blame as well.

Mighty reds

1.) 19 Apr 2021 14:49:38
If the money isn't there to spend then so be it. Would rather us play 11 youth players than sell the soul of the club.


2.) 19 Apr 2021 15:28:37
LFC sold its soul decades ago, if you want pure and soulful football then better to support your local team mate. LFC is a global brad for a reason. FSG will continue to extract more cash, add more Value to their asset etc etc.


3.) 19 Apr 2021 15:17:50
But then we would demand the owners sell, and would be walking down Anfield Road with banners protesting, you can't have it both ways, us as fans are hypocritical.

{Ed002's Note - I assume that you will be walking down Anfield Road when the owners are milling about there as well.}


4.) 19 Apr 2021 15:55:03
Well said Mighty Reds. It is genuinely mind blowing how oblivious football fans are to their part in this. Banners to get owners out and managers sacked. Demanding their club keep ticket prices and merchandise costs frozen, whilst simultaneously demanding huge transfer and salary outlays. The current model is not sustainable. Something had to give under the weight of fan pressure and the growing time bomb that is the debt top clubs have accumulated. If you create a beast, don't complain when you get bitten.


5.) 19 Apr 2021 16:05:40
how can you possibly defend it? football existed before the premier league, before the European cup became the champions league. this under no circumstance is a necessity. the football club would continue to make money without the ESL. i understand football has moved on but to make a competition governed by its competitors taking away any sort of long term goals from the smaller clubs. attempting to take a huge financial advantage into their domestic leagues is nothing short of immoral. its put players, managers, fans and staff in a horrible position. i for one would rather see the club sent down to the national league.


6.) 19 Apr 2021 16:18:37
MK, you nailed it there.


7.) 19 Apr 2021 16:41:36
Oddly I don’t remember fans with banners demanding we sign Mbappe or Messi. But the banners are out in force against this super league.

I’m sorry but a few naive fans kicking and screaming for unrealistic signings is no excuse for this.


8.) 19 Apr 2021 17:41:36
To blame fans for this is farcical. Fans of every club want the club they support to sign the best possible players, it’s down to the owners and board who run the club to do what’s right for them, what’s sustainable. Leicester won the league you don’t see them signing players on £300k a week wages for you. Fans will always want the best, but they don’t run the club. The rats that own you and us are to blame for this, nobody else.


9.) 19 Apr 2021 18:15:23
Amen Stand couldn’t have said it better myself.


10.) 19 Apr 2021 23:12:10
No one is blaming fans. Just pointing out the hypocrisy. These are the same fans who shout greed but then want their owners to spend spend spend. East when it's not your money aye?

Someone else said there was European football before champions League. Yes, then it evolved and changed into a bigger money spinner. UEFA are trying to evolve again to make more money. See how it works?


 

 

19 Apr 2021 11:57:13
The idea as if the super league is a new one and everyone in uproar, its been only a matter of time for the last 20 yrs.

Mighty reds

 

 

15 Apr 2021 14:01:13
Ed1 where do you see Jones best position long term, in a midfield 3 or a forward 3?

Mighty reds

{Ed001's Note - midfield, though it might need to be altered to get the most out of him as I think he is more of a number 10 behind a striker at his best.}


1.) 15 Apr 2021 14:15:07
I think he could do pretty well in a traditional LW role in a 4-2-3-1 if required. Klopp seems to be pretty keen on using that formation anyways.


2.) 15 Apr 2021 15:14:34
I think LW or Lm this is where he played for the youth teams. Can’t see him as a 10 but he might develop into that. I hope he steps up again next season, we really need him to.


3.) 15 Apr 2021 14:10:07
I'm with Ed on this. I think a 4-2-3-1 gets the best out of him. Either on the left of the 3 or in the centre behind a No.9 seems to be most suited to his skillset. His late runs into the box are Lampard-esque.

Cm all day for me the heartbeat of a side.

Ed 001. What is your opinion of Curtis and do you see a future for him. I rate him and want things to work out. If he was at Norwich people would be saying he is worth 20m plus because he is English etc.
Value your opinion.

{Ed001's Note - I think he is excellent, possibly the one bright spot in the season. He has been pretty much our best central midfielder and I would like to see him given more time next season to push on.}


6.) 15 Apr 2021 19:15:51
CM or AM for Curtis Jones, for me. I've seen him roam around on both the right and the left, and he's been equally good; with the press, with link up play forward and even the occasional curler attempt into the corner of the net. I prefer wingers with a little more blistering speed.


7.) 15 Apr 2021 19:53:43
He's done exceptionally well. He should be very proud of himself.


8.) 15 Apr 2021 20:18:05
I think we are going a bit overboard he hasn’t really done much yet. If he played for a different team posters would be saying he needs more assists more goals more influence on games. People have compared him to other English players who play in similar positions. If he is as good as them he will have to get 20 combined goals and assists next season.

{Ed001's Note - stats like that are nonsense. David Silva rarely got assists, but he was better than any player Jones has been compared to and played a similar role to the one we are suggesting. So no, to be as good as them he doesn't need to pad stats, he needs to play well.}


9.) 15 Apr 2021 20:24:11
Would love to one day see a midfield three combo of Curtis on the left, TAA on the right and another scouser as DM.


10.) 15 Apr 2021 20:33:00
He has played 25 games in pl and cl this season and has 2 goals and 2 assists. We have a team full of players who don’t contribute at the top end of the pitch. Silva played a different role and his team was full of players who get goals, ours isn’t. If Jones played for any other team he would not get this credit. He is 20 years old and a big talent but next season he must step up, Klopp doesn’t trust him fully atm.

{Ed001's Note - Silva was the same in Spain. It was not because of the role or the players around him. Jones just needs to perform, he has been playing deeper than Silva, so is in fact less likely to score goals or provide assists. You can't say a player has to get more assists anyway, they are such a moronic stat and totally unrelated to a player's ability. They are purely related to the ability of another player who is getting the ball next. The way our strikers have played this season, it is a miracle anyone has an assist.}


11.) 15 Apr 2021 20:43:18
The way our strikers have played this season it’s a miracle anyone has an assist 🤣.
Your now wrong.

{Ed001's Note - it must be so frustrating to put the ball in and watch them hit it straight at the goalkeeper time and time again this season. If that is their level you can understand it, but you know they are better than that so it must make you fume inside. Especially when you are missing out on win bonuses so often!} Become a Patron!


12.) 15 Apr 2021 20:55:53
Markp08, i can't speak for others, but I was not comparing him to Lampard. In fact the trait i picked out is the only comparison i could make between the two. People who say Trent crosses like Beckham aren't comparing him to Beckham as a player, they're conparing one aspect of their games. I'd rather he is the first Curtis Jones than the next {insert name}.


13.) 15 Apr 2021 21:17:45
It’s an odd thing these days that most promising young English midfielders are AMs.
They don’t want to do the hard yards, get their shorts dirty, put tackles in anymore.
I think there really has been a sea-change in our football culture in that regard.
That may or may not be a good thing.
I see Jones very much belonging to that group as well.
I sense he doesn’t relish what Klopp’s asks of his midfield, that’s just my feeling.
He’s a good player with a lot of promise but I do wish we had another young Henderson or Gerrard on our books though.


14.) 15 Apr 2021 21:22:06
That was supposed to say Not.
Evening MK. I understand your point, I used to enjoy watching Cutis in the U23s he was so much better than the rest. Man against boys, massive season for him and us coming up, I really hope he kicks on. Fabs, Hendo and Jones I think could it could be top class.


15.) 15 Apr 2021 21:50:09
Ed I think he has improved vastly as the season as gone one thing I have seen him improve on through the season is not taking an extra touch when not needed. That is one thing I think Neco Williams needs to improve on and only game time helps these young players. Unless Jones is going to get a good amount of game time next season I hope he gets a loan where he will same for Williams. But I hope Jones takes Gini place in the squad and would love a defensive midfielder to come in to give Fabinho a rest rather than Henderson dropping back there think we have missed him so badly in the middle of the park and I think from the WBA game when he dropped back that is where are season went so badly wrong.

{Ed001's Note - that's something I agree with you on, we need someone to cover/push Fabinho most of all.}


16.) 15 Apr 2021 23:28:20
I have to disagree juicer, nothing from watching Jones has given me the impression he doesn't want to put in the hard yards, or not get his shorts dirty. In fact that's one difference with being in our midfield to some other top sides and why the goal and assists stats are not relevant. Our midfielders, especially where Jones plays in that 8 role has massive defensive responsibilities in my opinion. Both with high intensity pressing and intelligence as well as covering for full backs, you regularly see him in the full back positions helping Trent or robbo depending on what side he's on I think.


17.) 15 Apr 2021 22:54:08
We won the league and Hendo was player of the year when he played most of the season in the holding role. Fabs was out for 4 months or so last season.

{Ed001's Note - agree on that, but Hendo is even better when he plays ahead of that, so why not bring in someone so he can focus on playing his best role?}


18.) 16 Apr 2021 02:13:36
Someone like Berge possibly Ed? I believe he can also do a box to box role as well so he could possibly cover Gini's replacement as well as cover for Fabinho.

{Ed001's Note - I am not convinced by him. He is ok, decent Prem level player, but I don't think he is quite good enough to step up. Mentally I mean, he doesn't seem to have the football intelligence. The ideal would be Ndidi.}


19.) 16 Apr 2021 07:10:46
Ndidi unfortunately won't come to LFC to be a rotation player Ed001.
I think getting a cdm who can also play in other positions like full back and CB would be ideal. Malang Sarr would have made sense last summer or we go and get Kamara from Marseille.

{Ed001's Note - I know mate, but if you buy a player of that quality you find a way to get him in the team regularly anyway.

I really wanted us to get Sarr last summer, would have made perfect sense but I can't see it happening now. Kamara would be a good one as he can cover DM as well. What about trying to prize Saliba from Arsenal? I believe he can play right-back as well.}


20.) 16 Apr 2021 08:18:03
I've never seen Saliba play. I remember before his move to arsenal he was on one of top 10 central defender articles so I was looking forward to watching him. Considering I trust your judgement it's odd why arteta has shut him out completely.

{Ed001's Note - the French league ended when everything went into lockdown, so he went there without having played any football for months. Arteta basically took a quick look and decided against him, rather than giving him some time to find his feet again. Big mistake.} Become a Patron!


21.) 16 Apr 2021 09:29:15
I like the look of Jones but I think we need to allow him time to develop and not over hype him. Anyone remember the Scouse Cafu. Jones is only 20 but there are quite a few players younger, same age or slightly older who are all also being hyped up by the media or their own fans.


22.) 16 Apr 2021 09:59:36
I'm hoping Curtis may field in a younger, more energetic and technically gifted midfield that can add more goals and we move on up the table next season.


23.) 16 Apr 2021 12:24:37
Jones is class, i'd have him in front of Gini all day long, he deserves the chance to play, he obviously has spells where he goes missing for a game or two but he is still young, when he shows up he gives us something more than the others.


24.) 16 Apr 2021 11:19:10
Ed, Bisouma is the answer here, IMO. The mere us no role in CM he cannot play as I have watched him play the DM (against us at Anfield this season), AM and Box to Bix in the past with good pace and a rocket on him. The guy is special. We’re he to join, I believe he could solve any CM problem we have as he is literally a Swiss Army Knife type midfielder.

Also, I agree with what you said about how you are surprised at how anyone has gotten assists this season with the way our strikers have fluffed their lines this season. I give you a good example. Bobbie laid a ball on a plate for Salah vs Arsenal and he missed. Mane lays it in a plate for Bobbie at Sheffield Utd and he missed. Mane lays ins on a plate for Sakah vs Madrid and he missed. How many times have our boys put the ball on a platter and teammates have fluffed their lines?

I believe poor finishing almost as much as injuries have killed us this season. Just see the Madrid game on Wed. It is a microcosm of our season right there.

{Ed001's Note - Bissouma I would love us to sign.}


25.) 16 Apr 2021 13:26:09
Curse you Ed001 you had to say it🤦‍♂️.

{Ed001's Note - I know, but as we have yet to show interest I can't put the kibosh on it!}


26.) 16 Apr 2021 17:08:14
Hopefully we will mate.

Liver la Salah as outperformed mane season after season, how do you get to that Mane is our best player, very good but blows out and cold.

Reality shows that either Mane or Salah will need to go probably, and Salah is the world class player out of the two, plus in Jota we already have a replacement for Mane, so be realistic.

Magico at least Bobby was getting in the positions to shoot, the other two were just as wasteful, but Bobby was trying to make things happen.

Woolback, I totally disagree yet again a policeman got injured for doing his job, a job where they have no power but are expected to go to work and its ok if they get injured, same as all protests its the police force who lose out, one of the policeman got his face slashed by mindless thugs. It was wrong, also why should the players have to stay in there hotels because of fears of safety, it was bang out of order.

It is pointless me answering you, waste of everyone's time as you won't take any notice unless it agrees with you blinkered viewpoint.}
