ED01, this one is for you. What do you think of Villareal's Gerard Moreno? I have watched him quite a bit and I love him as a player. He is has great movement, an eye for a goal and esp. an I for a pass. Drops deep to orchestrate and works very hard pressing the oppo. and tracking back to help hence, he has a good engine on him.

What do you think of him as a potential Bobbie-type player in our system cos I think he is one of the few CF's who can play the Bobbie role. Cheers, man.


{Ed001's Note - I have not seen a lot of him sorry.}

Is he not 30? Not much point replacing Bobby with someone the same age who would need to create an understanding with salah and mane. Good player though, from what I've seen.

RP, Oh, I did not know he was near 30. If true, then, it's a shame cos he is absolutely brilliant, IMO.

Had to check, as it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong, looks like he's 29,so same as Bobby bright-teeth!

Hello Ed01, maybe you and others can chime in here. I know a lot has been said about the cause of LFC's probs this season and where they come from. What I have been mostly annoyed about is how pundits are looking for other causes as to why we have issues whereas the cause of our issues is pretty obvious: Injuries, right? And each time I see pundits trying to say "Oh Klopp should do this or that or the other" instead of saying what is obv., has been peeing me off for weeks now.

I watched the Anfield Wrap podcast on youtube with Neil Atkinson and Rory Smith (brilliant guy) and he gave a take that I had not even looked at. Smith said that the cause of our issues is pretty obv. YET boring in the eyes of the media. He said that the cause of our issues News Flash: Injuries, yeah? However in the media, there is only so far you can go with that hence, it becomes boring.

Therefore, the media has to create another or other narratives to "create" other causes for the public and the pundits to feed on esp. online. Hence, they attack Klopp on this or that or "Why does he not play a 442 or a back 3 (as if we have the personel or the bodies to play such formations cos of you know, the injuries? )3 Or the fav from Roy Keane "He is the manager. It's his job to fix it" (funny how that NEVER applies to his buddy OGS) ". Therefore, this is all fake news drummed up by the media by design and dishonesty.

Now Rory Smith said that it is tough for Klopp to "change" stuff cos for the most part, we play well in games BUT either don't take our chances or make mistakes that eventually cost us games so it is tough for Klopp to do say Now, he did say that there are some changes Klopp could do to make us less predictable and we saw a bit of that last night vs Sheff. He played Mane central, Jones on the left and Salah on the right in attack and Bobbie in the 10 and it gave us a bit more impetus going forward and created chances and won the game. Thoughts?


{Ed001's Note - not sure Smith is right about the changes there. That was more of a natural rotation and movement than any particular set up. Jones always gets forward, Mane often drifts central and Bobby always plays the 10. It was just working better than normal because we were making better decisions with our balls in the final third. It was just a case of doing what we were doing anyway but better. Just like when Paisley took over from Shanks, he told the players nothing would change, they would keep doing what they were doing but they would do it better. That's all we needed.

Smith is 100% right about the media. They barely talk about Sheffield United now because they have struggled with injury problems and it is not going to bring in clicks by talking about it. Unlike Liverpool, there is not a huge media machine that requires fresh LFC stories to be churned out, so the Blades can just be forgotten about. Liverpool have far too big a following to be forgotten about, so they have to look for new angles all the time and new narratives to bring in page views.}

Thanks, Ed for your input. I do agree that we were doing what we normally do but only better. I was the one who came to the conclusion of a change by Klopp during the game cos it seemed the forwards stayed in those positions a bit longer than just occasional changes in-game to keep the defence guessing.

I was thinking the same thing about Sheff. Utd regarding injuries. I could be wrong but along with us, they are the other team that has really struggled all season long with injuries BUT since no one cares about Sheff Utd nor Chris Wilder and they don't generate clicks, no one is giving their them as hard a time as Klopp and LFC are getting. Like you said, you got to go after the big fish to get clicks.

{Ed001's Note - exactly and we are one of the biggest fish for clickbait.}

Ed01 please, did you do a match review of the West Ham game yet or did I miss it? Cheers, man.


{Ed001's Note - you must have missed it: West Ham review

If you bookmark the site it is on then you can check much more easily and quicker than waiting for me to get a chance to reply mate.}

1.) 03 Feb 2021 01:01:35
Thanks Ed missed that. I'm glad you mentioned Phillips defending first free kick. Could have been a var goal otherwise. Likewise, gini in dm and thiago further forward. Gini I think klopp trusts him a bit more esp with hendo at cb in that position. However, surely this means Fab can be returned to play dm. He has been missed, his proactive closing down and reading of the game sets up our play. A midfield of hendo thiago and fab?

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed!}

Much appreciated, Ed01. This is that I don't have a PC yet so I surf the internet hence this site, on my phone. Therefore, cannot bookmark this page for now.

Liverpool are interested in a lot of players just like any other club is interested in players and prospects. From there to actually signing the player, is another story entirely.

Cornish, Salah said when he first arrived, that he always felt he would always come to us after the move we made for him fell thru in the 13/ 14 season.

He referenced the game where we lost the title due to that game where Demba Ba capitalised on Stevie’s mistake and said he felt shivers from the Anfield crowd while on the pitch that day.

Therefore as soon as we came in for him again in the summer of 2017, he did not hesitate one bit.

Mark, Thiago was on the pitch when Elliott got injured at Leeds so your last point just got easily debunked. Nice try, tho. Now All the other stuff you said about Thiago prior to that, I fully agree with.

Mark, how has Jones fallen down the pecking order when he didn’t even complete a full season cos he got concussed? Also, saying he has fallen down to 7th or 8th is just hyperbole that doesn’t deserve my time.

Sure, he could be behind in his preparation and the others who were ahead of him now, are just there due to them NOT being injured like him. Jones is a legit baller cos even rival fans online rave about him and the good season he had last year.

I base my judgement of Jones in what he has actually produced on the pitch last season where he performed admirably in a team in tatters. Can’t say that for Foden, can we?

The kid will be fine with time and I’m sure he is ready for the competition for places, IMO. The slander he gets from fans is just strange and bizarre cos there’s no basis for it whatsoever.

Ed01, I take your point that it is a bit of both but frankly, some of these players he’s playing against are in awe of him a bit too much, to be fair and it is quite laughable at times.


{Ed001's Note - it will fade though, especially as managers point out to their players his weaknesses.}
