Salah signed a 3year deal!

Question for Ed's 1. Has Klopp got a headache over the centre defence? Matip has been class. Does Gomez go straight back in? How will Klopp keep Matip happy if he s played so well but returns to the bench?

What's your take on it folks?


{Ed001's Note - it is not a headache, it is a great problem to have.}

Tough one redman84. The key to keeping them happy will be rotating appropriately and making use of the fact that Gomez can cover right back.

As to who starts I honestly have no idea. At his best Gomez is clearly the better defender so I'd be inclined to start him in order help rebuild his understanding with Van Dijk, but its difficult to look past Matip's form.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 14:16:47
I agree with Ed001.

It’s a great problem to have, there are so many games, we need quality in the rotation strategy.

I think it’s brilliant.

I think I’m with you eamonsf! Defensive partnerships need to be consistent to be at there best. I suppose it just shows how cruel the game can be sometimes for players in Matip’s situation. Plays out of his skin, does a great job but it still won’t be enough : (.

Gomez is the way to go as his recovery speed is top notch. He and VVD are the dream centre back pair.

Wouldn’t swap that pairing for anyone else in Europe.

Imagine if Klopp signed Pepe and had to keep him happy with Salah, Firmino and Mane already nailed down in the 1st team.

Now that would be one hell of a constant headache which Pepe probably would not have been keen on or otherwise just leave Salah on the bench, let Pepe take his place.

Pretty much the same situation with Matip and Gomez.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 15:36:34
There will be plenty games for both. Although we don't like it Gomez will also play games at rb so both could well play together.

7.) 06 Aug 2019 15:43:00
Little bit different Maxlfc, as Pepe would likely have only arrived based on the expectation that he'd be a guaranteed starter. Meanwhile Matip came in as a starter and then found himself way down the pecking order as others progressed or arrived. He then got lucky with injuries and made the most of the opportunity (fair play to the lad) .

But hypothetically if the Pepe transfer had happened, yes mate that would have been another great headache (assuming no one acted up in response) .

8.) 06 Aug 2019 15:47:09
Matip starts for me. Deservedly so too. Gomez will have be content with sub and cup games and to wait like matip did.

9.) 06 Aug 2019 16:40:38
Gomez for me, he's got pace and reads the game well, Matip still makes me nervous.

10.) 06 Aug 2019 20:03:00
taao1 if Matip still makes you nervous then that is soley down to you cos for the majority of the LFC fans, he has been immense for the past 3 months and has not lost a step judging by the solid perf. he had last Sunday vs City.
As for who starts, of course it is a good problem to have. I mean how many clubs do you know that have three elite CB and one very good one in Lovs, to pick from. Some clubs can't even get two good ones to play together.

Look at City for example. People say they have a tonne of depth. Not at CB they don't. Laporte is a top talent. After that, Stones and Otamendi are complete disasters waiting to happen and they had better hope Laporte can play all season and not get injured (which he is now) cos they will struggle mightily if those two clowns have to go through majority of the season.

11.) 06 Aug 2019 22:58:45
Well said RedWolf, City's lack of cover at Centreback is rarely talked about. Never mind the fact the fact that Mendy is never fit and Zinchenko is awful (Not in general, just out of position at left back) .



05 Aug 2018 10:57:00
Morning gents. My thoughts are that this year we will see a bit more squad rotation this season to help us maintain out high tempo. Seems Klopp has cover lots of positions to facilitate this.




29 Dec 2017 14:36:31
Firstly wishing all the Ed's a happy crimbo and a good new year.

Second- for posters who haven't been on the site for long. It's taken me about 2years if reding this site to get to grips with the workings of football clubs be it transfers, scouting or the money side of the game. I've learnt shed loads from the Ed's by just reading.

The first few posts of mine were foot care as every time a new headline came in the press I'd be straight on asking. Now I just take em with a pinch of salt and wait for the info from the Ed's. The best posts for me are genuine quests abou the club and players as the Ed's seem to be more than happy to give the full low down on their knowledge which is most of the time amazing.

I really think Klopp is building quite a team an I'm pretty excited about the football we are playing now and the next few years for Liverpool. We are on the up an but by bit all the bad bits in the club are being put right.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year everyone.

Ed002 is the oracle 🙌 can I ask what your thoughts are on Diaz as a player?

Thanks for all the time you put in.


{Ed002's Note - Diaz is very well liked as a player but may not be able to immediately adapt - and I am not sure how good his English is. I am sure that eventually it should work out but there is a huge cultural shock coming for the player taking him out of his comfort zone of sunny Portugal with the wonderful seafood and the beautiful girls laughing to move to the grim, wet and cobbled streets Northwest of England where there would be a significant cultural change, overweight tattooed women pushing wheelchairs with kids who look like their brothers, smog, dead & dying pit ponies laying on the street, and only chips and fried curry to eat.}

It does kind of make sense to try and sign a mature player. I think it’s important to add that 28 year old is not past it and worthy of a contact.

We did this Thiago. Sadly it hasn’t worked out that well but it shows that the transfers seem to be a mixture of youth and experience.

It’s logical that the club brings in some slightly older players going forward as the team will loose several senior players due to age and that the majority some will be replaced with likes of Gordon, Elliot. With jones already starting to cement a slot.
There is a need to ensure that there remains some experience running through the team. Someone like dyabala makes sense to me. Wether it’s going to happen is another matter 🤣.

I don’t understand how anyone can be critical of that performance. 3 games I’m playing like that was fantastic! I was utterly chuffed and enjoyed a great game of football. Of course there are always details to pick over but we were bloody brilliant . Come on you red men!

He’s a liverpool player who represents the club. Maybe afford him and the manager and the club a little respect! Fans? You give us a bad name. Sometimes things don’t work out as we all hope they would. That doesn’t mean you should turn into an arsehole because it’s hasn’t gone to plan. Fan = supported not some childish boo boy who knows f all about f all.

Agree Irish rover. We need players who can rotate with the starting eleven. What we don’t need is “back up players” all those you have mentioned lower the teams performance when they step on the pitch. Whereas players like jota, matip and Jones slot in. Deadwood in the squad brings the whole team down.


{Ed002's Note - This is the most disgraceful of posts. Liverpool have done well this year and have had to use fringe players to do so - yet the pond life still want the "deadwood" gone from the club. Complete and utter appalling support from some Liverpool fans yet again. I guess the likes of van Dijk, who has done nothing for the club this season, are part of the "deadwood" that needs to go.}

Mighty reds- you mentioned stories and drama. What about Leicester winning the league? What about our games against Dortmund? What about clubs like Man City coming from nowhere and turning into world beaters? Is that not drama enough for you? Wake up man.

Although I agree that we need cover for the front three Klopp has to take his share for yesterday. Tactically Utd s set up killed our flow. We needed to change our tactics much sooner or perhaps even before a ball was kicked.
What we knew pre match:

Utd were always going to set up to counter
All Utd players would play better than they usually do
Our wingbacks are both our strength and weakness.

Why not set up a 4-2-3-1 from the get go?

Origi could have played as line striker?

The community shield put this discussion to bed for me. Both teams seemed to have picked up where they left off. Granted there are always improvements to be made but come on folks our team is pretty amazing. New players won't better our team development will.

Our main strength is our team work. I don’t think I can remember a group that seems so together.
Everyone mentions city’s squad strength but they have some ageing stars and have lost kompany.
Keep the faith Klopp isn’t gambling on our squad it is more than capable of winning the league!
