With a new manager there's always some sort of change. I was thinking instead of Trent coming into midfield keep him at RB and let Connor become a rampaging No. 8 in the mold of stevie G. Any other suggestions?

cauli kid

1.) 27 Jun 2024 08:07:28
How about putting Alisson up front. We’d be deadly at corners.

2.) 27 Jun 2024 08:12:30
I thought we are completely against the idea of inverted football.

3.) 27 Jun 2024 09:21:28
I don't think Bradley has shown anything to inform us that he would be a good No.8. He has played mostly all his senior games at RB and I believe that was his position in our youth teams too. Trent, on the other hand, was a MF in our academy and came into the senior team as an RB because of injuries so he should be a more comfortable MF than Bradley.

I think we may see a change in formation actually. From the 433 that Klopp/ Lijnders favoured to a more 4231 shape. It does seem like Slot prefers the inverted FB system too so I would like to see how he plays that. I think it can work depending on how it's played but the way we played it last season was very poor.

{Ed001's Note - he has played further forward than full back a lot of the time, at youth level, while on loan and at international level.}

4.) 27 Jun 2024 10:25:07
I don't think that's the worst suggestion. Definitely some similarities to Gérrard. I think either Trent or Bradley could do it hence my thoughts about having Szobo on the right aswell. I think if all stay fit, this could be a very good triangle on the right. You could add Elliot to this aswell and rotate the 4. Can we get a similar balance in the left? I think that needs looking at more.

5.) 27 Jun 2024 11:04:19
He will play midfield in the future, I’m certain of that.

6.) 27 Jun 2024 11:25:38
Dracred, Bradley played out wide on the right in the EFL Cup final when Gravenberch was injured and did not do too badly. He also played wingback at Bolton on loan and I think plays the same position for his country.

The evidence is there that he can play further forward. The question is that is can he flourish in these forward positions or is he more deadly from deep at RB, as he is now. Just my take.

7.) 27 Jun 2024 11:46:22
Still one of my favourite goals Bobby B, maybe it wouldn't hurt sticking the big man up top haha.

8.) 27 Jun 2024 12:22:50
I can see us playing both Trent and Bradley on the right hand side interchanging who is at RW and who is at RB. We need a Salah replacement and Slot plays with more traditional wide wingers in a total football style anyway so it's feasible at minimum.

9.) 27 Jun 2024 14:43:49
We don't need to replace Salah. Szobo can play there and will longterm imo.

10.) 27 Jun 2024 19:48:51
Edd001 do you think bradley can become a midfielder for us?

{Ed001's Note - can? Yes he can. I doubt it will happen though.}

11.) 27 Jun 2024 19:53:08
There will never be a player as good as Gerrard for Liverpool FC, unfortunately. But I think like Trent, Connor Bradley can play anywhere he wants to.

12.) 28 Jun 2024 07:50:03
@NBG …. Oh never mind.

13.) 28 Jun 2024 11:56:08
@NBG, speaking in absolutes does not make you opinion any more valid nor believeable. Just saying.



31 May 2024 13:55:45
Question for ed 1 if you've got time please.
Centre backs, with vdb coming back off a great season we will have 3 very good RCBs why can't one off them be trained to play as a LCB to be a log term replacement for Virgil rather than buying someone?

cauli kid

{Ed001's Note - Quansah can play there.}

1.) 31 May 2024 19:37:52
Van dijk still has a good few years in him yet but we do need to think about his successor I would love that to be quansah. Just seems like a really good lad and
His anticipation in the opposition box at set pieces looks very natural aswell could be a decent return on goals from him aswell . He had a brilliant display in the fa cup game against Arsenal at lcb just had a monster and best version of konate that overshadowed how good jarrel was that day aswell ??.

2.) 31 May 2024 21:05:46
Do you see Quansah as a natural successor to VVD, Ed001? Right footed LCB?

Do you think we would suffer without having a naturally left footed CB? Or could we do like we do on the wings with left footers on the right and right footers on the left?

{Ed001's Note - it would be better if it was a left footer, but it is not vital. Quansah has a lot to work on before he can be considered as a VVD replacement.}

3.) 01 Jun 2024 05:10:16
Inacio is the one.

4.) 01 Jun 2024 10:42:27
Given most teams play with left footed wide men on the right and visa versa, wouldn't it make sense for managers to try out right footed players a LB and LCB and left footed players at RB and RCB? Surely it's easier to defend against them when the cut inside? No?

{Ed001's Note - but then it would restrict the teams even further when going forward. The idea is to let the full-back overlap into the space vacated by the wideman cutting inside.}

5.) 01 Jun 2024 11:11:15
Hanson played as lcb for years and didn't bother him being right footed!

6.) 01 Jun 2024 13:55:03
VVD has played on the left (being right footed) for us since the day he arrived as well, Digger. Didn't hurt him one bit.

7.) 01 Jun 2024 14:15:27
Probably the 2 best cbs ever 2 put on a red shirt oli would u agree?

8.) 01 Jun 2024 19:11:11
Digger, brilliant shout, man. Both players had/ have an aura, a presence about them that you can recognize as soon as you see them on the pitch. True cornerstones of successful LFC teams.

For me like AB1, I can argue VVD is the best CB the PL has ever seen in terms of sheer ability, impact on a whole club not just the team.

9.) 01 Jun 2024 22:27:09
Crazy to think that Hansen was this global superstar pre the internet, sky and streaming.



27 May 2024 23:11:50
Be interested to hear other posters view on this. Assuming we play a double 6 with Trent moving into midfield and another all round midfielder comes in, Mac Allister and Elliott playing mostly as the 10. Were does gravenberch fit in, I think he's got the skill set to develop into a very good back to Gakpo on the left up top?

cauli kid

1.) 27 May 2024 23:31:36
Not sure I agree with that. His close control and agility limit him ability to play left wing.

He’s a ball winning midfielder.

2.) 27 May 2024 23:33:59
I think macalister and trent make sense at 6 with the passing ability and ranges of distance, koop and szob at ten both have outrageous long shot ability which is quite mouth watering, gravenberch I visualise to be a back up rotation player with jones Elliot ends morton carvalho bajeyic.

3.) 28 May 2024 02:11:16
You're seeing more in the lad then I am mate, unfortunately. I just don't see him working out for us.

4.) 28 May 2024 03:00:10
He will play RB and invert to be one of the pivots. That is how Slot plays. He is the dream RB for him. I donot see him moving into mf.

5.) 28 May 2024 03:28:08
He seems more focused going forward than defending and seems capable of going past players. I believe he is also reasonably composed in front of goal. I know he’s not doing enough yet but I think his potential ability is high. I think he could end up being Like a lesser Stevie g.

6.) 28 May 2024 04:00:51
Hi sanjit. You may be right about Trent but I genuinely believe the balance of the team would be better with Trent playing as one of a double 6 and Bradley playing at RB he’s going to be way too good to be on the bench.

7.) 28 May 2024 07:34:26
I'm not quite sure where grav will fit in but we do have to remember we in champ league this year and there a minimum of 8 games in group stage possibly 10 so are squad will be needed. Even tho we well stocked in midfield we ended up playing gomez at 6 last season due to injuries and that was with us in europa league where group was v weak, champ league will all be tough games I would imagine, no gimmes.

8.) 28 May 2024 07:44:05
I should copy and paste this! I don't see Trent playing in midfield as double pivot, whatever that means, or in any other position other than right back. With regards to Gravenberch, I don't see a future with us in the long term, or medium term, come to that.

9.) 28 May 2024 08:24:16
Colonel, TAA and MAC at number 6 is nothing more than an open invitation to run at our defence. Neither of them are defensive minded midfielders and doesn’t fix the problems from last year. If Slot tries that he’ll find out that hard way that you don’t win titles without a strong top class centre midfielder.

10.) 28 May 2024 09:19:41
If we play a double pivot i'd have Mac aand more defensively mided player, not Endo though. Shouldnt be starting. let trent ccompete with bradley.

11.) 28 May 2024 09:40:41
Agree with you on that, June nkunku.

12.) 28 May 2024 09:53:17
Given we don't really know what Slot will want to do when he gets his hand on this squad of players, we can only speculate. Klopp played with a double-pivot at Dortmund too. Ours is a different squad to Feyenoord, in a different league with different qualities.

We can however look at the overall balance of the squad and say:

1) We need a defensive midfielder that can cover the ground
2) We need to replace Matip
3) We need a left-footed defender that can progress the ball
4) We need another speedy wide forward given Salah's declining long pace
5) We might need to replace Kelleher if he goes.

If we can sort those things out, then Slot will have everything he needs to play with almost any tactical setup.

As for Trent - I'll stand by the opinion that he should be play RB and be asked to invert on instruction rather than as he feels.

And Gravenberch - a strange signing for me. If we do choose to invest in his development, he needs to start by unlocking some aggression. Without that he will fail.

13.) 28 May 2024 10:04:39
Agree with everything you've said there, FPF. Regards to Kelleher replacement, I read this morning that we're linked with Trafford. Hope there's no truth in that. I know he's young, but I wouldn't want him filling in for Alisson, given his performances for Burnley last season.

14.) 28 May 2024 10:20:00
Cheers, Rome1977.

I haven't seen Trafford enough but when I have seen him he reminded me of Kelleher a lot with his footwork. So I can see why they might look at him from that point of view.

However, would he want to go an sit on the bench at Liverpool at this stage of his career?

15.) 28 May 2024 10:45:09
I’d take Trafford as a Kelleher replacement. Homegrown and still a good young keeper. Wouldn’t want him as first choice, but as back up he’s similar in level to Ortega, Ramsdale etc.

We’re incredibly lucky to have a keeper as good as Kelleher as back up. It’s unlikely to happen again for some time at any Prem club because top keepers don’t move to sit on the bench. Kelleher just happened to come through our academy, but it’s only a matter of time before he looks at his situation a realises he deserves more.

16.) 28 May 2024 11:05:02
Have to disagree with you, MKS. He's no where near the level of Ortega or Ramsdale. He's like a crisp when it comes to the physical stuff, from what I've seen, and he lost his place in the Burnley side because of it. Maybe he will improve, and I'm sure he will, but given the injuries Alisson had this year, I wouldn't want Trafford anywhere near our first team.

17.) 28 May 2024 11:10:45
Reference the OG question, Macca played his best footy in a double pivot, so I think he would be best there alongside Trent as first choice pairing. I think Gravenberch provide rotation and cover to Mac as role rather than something further forward. Although I do think he could play 10, I reckon we have many better players.
All up in the air though isn't it. Certainly exciting and I'm looking forward to seeing how we line up and play.

18.) 28 May 2024 11:57:35
It was said the other day that Real are trying to persuade Trents agent into him running down his contract to move there.

Any idea what position Real see Trent in with their interest.

Is it Right Back or Midfield or both?

19.) 28 May 2024 12:14:16
Yes I know vikyor but that is how Arne plays he don’t have tradition defensive midfielder but has 3 players saying back in the back line not 2 so maybe we have more cover that way? In possession t makes my mouth salivate.

20.) 28 May 2024 14:08:14
He's very good playing out from the back though Rome and also still incredibly young for a keeper at 21 years old. With better players and coaches to learn from in training, and also less pressure on his goal when he does play, I think you'd see a lot less mistakes from him. The raw ability is there to see, and he's one of the best penalty stoppers I've seen in a long time.

It's a fair point though mate, as Trafford's not ready to be starting regularly and Alisson is quite unreliable in terms of fitness.

{Ed077's Note - Kelleher to Trafford is a big downgrade I'd say. Surely one of the young academy lads is half decent such that you don't have to throw money for Trafford

21.) 28 May 2024 15:25:26
MKS like Rome1977! and Ed77, Trafford is nowhere near Kellerher's ability and him being homegrown and all that doesn't do much for me if the kid cannot step in the way Kellerher has been.

Now I don't know who we can get BUT I've seen Trafford and he is relentlessly awful. there are other very good options out there we can get and sorry, they don't have to be English or homegrown cos you can be all that and still be crap, which Trafford is.

22.) 28 May 2024 16:09:03
When we talk about players being a ‘pivot’ can somebody explain to me what that actually means? Genuine question.

23.) 28 May 2024 16:38:38
WDW3, I'm with you, mate. Just more gobbledygook, jargon. However, having read up on it, when it comes to the "double pivot" it's requiring of tackling, winning headers, winning second balls and controlling the tempo of play, to name but a few. Basically being a midfielder! This rules Trent and Mac Allister ever being a "double pivot". In my humble opinion of course.

24.) 28 May 2024 19:57:22
A 'pivot' is the jargon term used to describe players in the zone between where defence usually lines up and the midfield. Klopp's 433 used a single pivot i. e fabinho splitting the CB's to create space through the midfield and provide options outside at the same time, with more traditional midfielders in Hendo and Gini ahead of him.
A double pivot is two players in that role instead of one, although Slot typically doesn't have these players as out and out defensive players. More progressive ball carriers and pace setters. Perfect role for Macca and Grav in my opinion. Potentially Trent as I have said above but he would need to tone down the long range passing. Slots teams don't tend to do much of thatz unless of course he's simply never had someone with Trents vision and ability before. I'm very excited to see.



30 Apr 2024 20:54:22
Hi Ed 01
Can I have your opinion mate, I like what you think for next year with Trent, szobo, beck, . If we sell Diaz and mo and bring in top quality centre back and forward, do you think we need a commanding centre mid like rice or rodri to compete with arsenal and city?
Personally I think we do but would appreciate your view.

cauli kid

{Ed001's Note - it would help, but there are other ways to play that would mean it wouldn't necessarily be needed. It is the easy solution though to improve midfield. But who is there out there?}

1.) 30 Apr 2024 23:28:48
Surely koopmeiners would be top of the list considering his past with slot?

As another poster said he's not the best defensively nor is Trent macca or szob so do we need a specialist 6 or not?

Twitter seems to think the young Dutch 6 at feyenoord is the next best thing but that would be a massive risk.

2.) 01 May 2024 06:46:49
Ed1, we all can see how Rice has transform Arsenal into legit title contender or how the likes of Alisson, Van Dijk or Salah has transform us into contender since they coming to our club. Do you see any player out there that can do that for us for next season? It doesn't have to be any positions, just player that can elevate our squad to the next level.

{Ed001's Note - not that we could get, no. I am sure there are some out there, but I can't think of any.}

3.) 01 May 2024 07:11:35
Perhaps Romeo lavia, see if he wants to play for a decent team? . Thanks for your reply.

4.) 01 May 2024 07:34:26
I always felt that we should've went all out for rice 2-3 years ago, he was the transformative signing we needed in that area of pitch.
Would've added physical strength+size, leadership, availability virtually always, a v v good footballer and could cover if need me all 3 positions in midfield and also cb. used to premier league so no problem adapting either.
U should be going for a player like that when your on top of the tree, like utd done buying keane after they won there 1st league in years
Unfortunately as ed1 says I can't think of anybody able to.

5.) 01 May 2024 08:34:34
Ed1, I guess getting the right tactics is the way to go. Tactics that will suits our first eleven as a whole and not just something to suit one player. So I say scrap the inverted full back tactic is one. My only concern is, I've seen report that Slot also play with inverted RB with Gertruida. I'm worried it will be the same as we have now.

{Ed001's Note - from what I have been told, Slot is very much a proponent of the inverted full-back.}

6.) 01 May 2024 08:55:25
With rice in our team I feel we would be sitting top of the league and heading to the eufa cup final.
Was gutted he went to Arsenal.
For me he's made a big difference to that Arsenal team.

7.) 01 May 2024 10:06:58
If Rice joined us Negative you’d just slate him the same way you slate all of our players and you’d be saying we should’ve signed Guimaraes instead.

8.) 01 May 2024 10:33:05
The inverted full back could work if your defenders can defend and get back into position, surely?
Our problems are VVD and TAA are both quite languid -for want of a better word- and Robertson still likes to get forward a lot.
We just need to be more defensively focussed and keep the ball further up the field when the fullback inverts.

9.) 01 May 2024 11:21:21
Yes, he is Ed01. Also, Slot loves wingers like kids love candy.

{Ed001's Note - ugh. The inverted full-back, a solution to a problem that never existed and which creates a brand new set of problems.}

10.) 01 May 2024 13:30:15
Would he have been the one putting the ball in the back of the net, because let's not forget, that has been the problem with Liverpool these last few games.

11.) 01 May 2024 14:37:47
I hate the inverted full back. We are so lopsided no width whatsoever on the right so we can't stretch teams. It seems wo easy to defend and your relying on trent playing a 1 in 100 pass to make it worth it. If we want trent in the middle so badly play him there and get a fullback who doesn't mind getting chalk on his boots because salah and elliot should be closer to the goal imo.

You weren’t one of the people shouting ‘shoot’ were you?

TB2, isn’t it tongue in cheek and specifically whenever Gomez is in the opposition half and has a clear path in front of him?

3.) 29 Feb 2024 12:10:10
Klopp has said people should stop yelling that Joey G should shoot. If he has to say that then you know that's a real problem.

4.) 29 Feb 2024 15:27:23
I also heard it when Bradley shot for Danns second goal. It's embarrassing.
