Hi Eds,

Long time lurker, fist time poster.

I've just read reports about Klopp declining an amazon documentary. Personally I think it was a good move to turn it down but I'm sure you could offer some better insights into whether a documentary would be a positive or negative thing for the club? I certainly could see a documentary improving exposure and marketing opportunities, but I also see why Klopp would feel it could be a disturbance.

Would love to hear one of the Eds thoughts on activities like these.

Also thanks for all the top quality insights I get to read everyday :)

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - All access fly-on-the-wall documentaries have been made about many sporting clubs including (off the top of my head) the New Orleans Saints, Manchester City, Sunderland, French World Cup squad, Seattle Mariners, Liverpool, Gillingham and I am sure many others. Typically they have no real impact and certainly there would be no new marketing opportunities arising as they are simply snapshots in time. People quickly forget - as an example. I have not seen any comments on this site about the Liverpool documentary since it aired.}

21 Sep 2018 15:51:14
Glad Klopp rejected it. The Man City one is absolutely cringeworthy. I remember Rodgers agreed to one as well and it was utterly embarrassing.

The portrait of Brendan in Brendan’s house still sticks in the memory 🙈.

{Ed002's Note - Do you think Klipperty kept the painting when he started renting the house?}

21 Sep 2018 17:01:31
Klopp found 12 Snickers under the master bedroom pillow the day he moved in.

Thanks Ed's002, have a good evening :)

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome - and you enjoy your evening as well.}

21 Sep 2018 11:59:31
Now then Ed001. How are you mate?

Would you change much for Saints game tomorrow? Maybe rest Salah for Shaqiri or bring in Fabinho?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - only if the sports scientists say someone needs a rest. My big worry would be Milner, he did show signs of fatigue at the end of the game against PSG, unsurprisingly. Might be time for him to have a day off. Other than that, and then only if he does actually need a rest, I would go with the same team as played last weekend.}

21 Sep 2018 12:17:28
Play the strongest team possible and give some a rest for the cup. need to try and keep our league form going.

Agree3 1Disagree

21 Sep 2018 12:20:18
I think there will only be 1 or 2 changes for Southampton (maybe Keita starting? ) but I expect a complete change for Chelsea midweek i. e. Clyne, Moreno, Matip, Fabinho, Shaq, Mignolet all starting.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Sep 2018 12:53:07
This will not be popular but I'm of the opinion the most important competition is the one you are currently playing in. So on Tuesday the most important competition for Liverpool should be the cup. If a player needs a rest then they should be rested but not because it's a league cup game. Liverpool haven't won anything for six years, the league cup is the first trophy you can win and should be gone after with the same vigour as all the others. Momentum is a big thing and if Liverpool change 7 or 8 players and get beat by Chelsea, the following Saturday the momentum is with them. Play the strongest team available and rest when needed.

Agree9 0Disagree

21 Sep 2018 14:03:08
I don't think the Fabinho cameo against PSG was a coincidence. Maybe a signal by Klopp indicating that he thinks he's ready? Would not be a bad idea to rest Milner and start Fabinho, playing behind Wijnaldum and Henderson. If things don't go well, Milner can always come in, being the Eveready battery that he is.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Sep 2018 16:21:07
Fabinho and Keita for Milner and Wijnaldum. They were both all over the pitch against PSG. Wouldn't mind if Klopp starts Sturridge too.

Agree0 1Disagree

21 Sep 2018 17:29:35
One hand I want Salah rested, on the other I'm thinking he's on the brink of it all clicking again and he could rip Saints apart.

Thanks Ed. Can Can Can! Engage brain before spouting off. Did some people say we’d miss Can? I don’t think he’d get into our midfield now.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no but we never thought we were getting Fabinho when people were worried about missing him.}

21 Sep 2018 09:01:13
Good morning Ed, thank you! hows things mate? hope you have a great Friday!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, hopefully a good one for you too. Did you book your break? Where are we going? You said us, so I assume all the posters and eds are invited to come along right?}

21 Sep 2018 10:18:46
You would think it’s a pretty simple concept, if your going to criticise someone or something don’t use gender, race, religion as a point of reference. You just can’t make comments like that without offending people.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Sep 2018 10:39:22
what a gesture by Eddie Davies. I don't know anything about him but he must have really loved that club. Have a great day.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - did seem to love them. Have to wonder what kind of person would go ask a dying man for money though!}

21 Sep 2018 12:41:58
Very true Ed. Everyone have a great day and weekend.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Sep 2018 13:05:29
I literally just booked it Ed1 mate lol going to Lake district for 5 days the week after next but yes, everybody is invited ;) . I'll see you down there mate! Hahaha.

I was so tempted to go for another deal, it was going to Vegas for 4 days then to New York for 3 days just short of £700pp but Vegas just doesn't interest us in the slightest, we aren't gamblers so saw no point. It was just tempting because of how cheap it was.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - never seen the big deal about Vegas, went there a few times but lots of flashing lights and slot machines and that was about it. I thought it had closed down years ago, I am pretty sure it wasn't there the last time I was in Lime Street....}

21 Sep 2018 13:21:35
A) Etuhu obviously sounds like exactly the sort of person that should be going into agency work.

B) Wish people would man up and stop being such big girl’s blouses about silly little nothing phrases like Can used. I know we live in a world where you can’t say boo to a goose (I apologise to all geese), but we all know what he means. He’s not criticising women, he’s criticising the reaction. I honestly do not know where this sanitisation ends. (It’s not just this - the “call off the dogs” and “whiter than white” nonsense have really got me goat up this last week or two (sorry goats) )

C) I wonder if Bartomeu would be willing to give up a Barcelona home match to go to the USA. I doubt it very much.

Agree4 2Disagree

21 Sep 2018 14:54:11
Just come back from vegas/ new york and absolutely loved it. didn't do that much gambling but it was such a great place to experience and also went and did the canyon which was mind blowing! Would definitley reccomend it if you have the oppurtunity.

When can left I bet he thought he was moving on and moving up. Now it looks like he has taken a backwards step. Serves him right. I liked him as a player but have not felt we missed him at all this year.

Agree0 2Disagree

20 Sep 2018 18:17:08
When certain things happen on the pitch and a player gets sent off. The club can appeal this decision, Im assuming replays come into the decision making process so wouldn't VAR just completely streamline this whole process?

Question came from the Ronaldo incident.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 18:58:51
I think we saw the issues with var at the wc - long, too much fuss, and still decisions are wrong. Refs have their ego to deal with, can they overturn their calls.
I the ref should be our the questions and the call should be made by the guy in the VAR room. Quickly, and without stopping play too long - why should the red need to look.

Agree5 2Disagree

20 Sep 2018 21:27:07
Agree Firmane. The ref can also be influenced by the players at the time. I can't stand how players are all over a ref. Pre VAR, I've never seen a ref change his mind, but they'd have a go anyway. Now, they'll amp it up even more.
In the rugby league in Aus, they have "The Bunker", a studio sometimes not even in the same state, where 3 or 4 officials quickly review an incident from several angles and make a decision. Works well. The players are wasting their time hassling a ref, as the decision is not made by him.

Agree5 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 22:40:25
lol burkey - it doesn't stop the league boys from hassling the ref anyway.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 22:45:34
Each team only gets to call VAR 3 times in a match. Bit like tennis I guess. That could work maybe?

Agree0 2Disagree

20 Sep 2018 22:49:53
3 rooms, 3 officials, same replays at the same time, they vote, decision is made, no arguments. It doesn’t have to be difficult.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - And maybe show girls on the pitch whilst they are deciding? Perhaps some animal acts? The Police Synchronised Motorcycle Team? Patty Page signing “How Much is That Doggy in the Window”.}

20 Sep 2018 23:00:22
Yeah Phil, but it's nothing compared to the footy players. Refs sometimes have to push through a crowd to get to a player and show a card, it's gone way too far.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Sep 2018 13:39:08
Yes because my system will take longer than the current one? You don’t need 75 crap replays. We could all see in the World Cup what they were watching and were able to make decisions using only 2 or 3 views - faster than them most of the time. In a vote system there is no surrounding the ref, no unnecessary back and forth and no further delays. 3 or 4 instant replays on set cameras using standardised viewpoints and angles with an instant minus however many second replay when a button is pushed. If you can’t make a decision after a couple of views then it’s not clear or obvious enough, hence the vote. They can be watching while play continues, if necessary and then relay the decision via the ref’s goal line technology watch.

The point is it doesn’t have to be a show or a farce. It will always be subjective, but don’t put extra pressure on one person at vital moments such as the Portugal/ Iran match or the World Cup Final. That would have been in the ref’s mind for the rest of the game. Not useful.

20 Sep 2018 17:46:31
Greetings Ed's, I did send in this query yesterday but seems to have not gone through. I was wondering how articles become articles. I often post match reviews right after the game and, whilst many of them are not made into articles, some of them are - I can't really see that much difference between the one's that make it and the one's that don't so was wondering what factors are at play - is it writing style, flow of the piece, word count? Would love to know the criteria as it's always nice when something I write does become an official 'article'.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed033's Note - It depends on which Ed sees your post. Please send your article post via the contact form. Look for Contact Us at the bottom of the page.

One player that we've been linked to in recent months is lucas paquetá (Though interest from manchester seems more serious), was just wandering what your take on the player was Ed001? if you were familiar. Ed002 had some interesting insight on the Manchester United page.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - only know him by reputation and that is a difficult thing to be sure about. Neymar had a great rep as did Ganso and they were both just show ponies.}

20 Sep 2018 15:08:22
Ed01 Thoughts on Sturridge up top with Firmino in behind. The formation we used against Brighton on the last day of last season when Solahke started up top.

Agree5 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - against a team that will sit back it would be perfect.}

20 Sep 2018 16:53:35
I think we are more likely to see Shaqiri behind Firmino with Sturridge saved for the league cup game next Wednesday.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 17:23:12
Cheers ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

20 Sep 2018 18:01:44
It's the kind of setup I'd like to see us playing against Utd! we'd rip them a new one.

Agree2 2Disagree

20 Sep 2018 19:00:39
I thought the same, can easily play both when there is less space, keep the wingers wider, Firmino into the hole and an out and out striker. If you play Shaqiri off Firmino he would have to learn where to be when Firmino drops off, or Salah or mane cut in not too get in the way!

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 20:19:45
Excellent idea and certainly worth trying. I was looking at Firmino's "heat map" for the entire 17/ 18 season, and the bulk of his activity was at the midway point between the half way line and the penalty box. Evenly distributed across the width of the field. So he wouldn't have to change his style of play at all. Imagine the terror in defenders' eyes in having to face Salah, Sturridge, Mane and Firmino. The big question is whom do you take out from the midfield and how much does it affect the balance of the team? Which of Milner and Wijnaldum do you take off? (Suddenly, it's not so easy 😉) .

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 21:32:07
ArAy, would it be much different to when Couts played is AM and fed Studge, Sterling and Suarez? Bobby is a great ball winner and reader of the game. I'm not advocating changing the role he has though, it works.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 23:45:00
I like the idea too. It would maybe give Bobby more opportunity to shoot from range which he rarely does. He has such a wicked finish I'd like to see him shoot more. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I love firmino. He likes to work the ball for an easy finish or pass for a definite goal but his finishing is top draw. Sturridge is also too good to waste away on the bench. I think Bobby could play the fekir role in our midfield.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Sep 2018 00:04:48
It’s difficult with Sturridge I think. I get frustrated watching him as his closing down is so half hearted. He gives the CB more time to pick a pass and so the press falls down before it’s begun.
I find myself comparing him to Bobby in that respect which isn’t really fair as there’s not another player on the planet who’s as good as Bobby at what he does off the ball.
This might be a way of shoehorning both into the team but whilst we are winning why bother?

Agree1 2Disagree

21 Sep 2018 01:28:16
Is this a joke 🤣

There have been some who have constantly said firmino at number 10 would be amazing, it would suit him down to the ground because of his style and the way he positions himself.

Agree0 1Disagree

21 Sep 2018 11:34:15
Only worry is that Sturridge also likes to come to the ball when he is not getting a touch playing up front and they might end up on top of each other.
Sturridge looks sharp and he is one of my favourite players when he is at so have loved seeing him involved so far.
I have a feeling it might still be best to keep his time on the pitch limited to get the best out of him in the long run and ensure he stays fit and ready to contribute.
Id be surprised to see him start two games in one week.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 12:54:45
Ed001 regd the GK coaching and all, most of them mention that Reina started to make errors with the change in GK coach. Is it possible for good experienced GK to have drop in quality due to bad coaching (methods)? . We have seen some real examples. How could someone who was trained from small age all of sudden to look like mug within a year?

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - a coach can make all the difference. A keeper could lose their sharpness, start second guessing themselves and then that can destroy their confidence.}

20 Sep 2018 13:15:09
Thanks ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - a great coach inspires a player to work harder for themselves. A good coach gets a player to work for them. A poor coach will make a player lose interest.}

20 Sep 2018 17:28:09
You mean Good, bad and ugly. ;)

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I wasn't going to bring Ed002, Ed025 and Ed0333 into it mate.}

20 Sep 2018 18:42:19
That's brilliant.

{Ed001's Note - why thank you.}

I know it was just bad rumours going round before, but does anyone have any thoughts on Rabiot now we've seen him a bit closer up?

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Sep 2018 14:05:17
A bit of a funny haircut but a decent enough looking bloke.

Agree5 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 15:26:04
He played quite well, used the ball nicely on the few ocassions when psg managed a spell of posession. Clearly right now Hendo, Milner, and Gini have responded to the new competition in midfield so we have 5 capable cms. However he Rabiot would be a good addition for the long term.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 16:33:31
I'd say 6 capable cms. Lallana isn't finished yet.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I thought I had dealt with all of the Rabiot stuff over and over already?}

20 Sep 2018 17:03:50
I didn't even know we were interested in rabiot? He is a good player but better than our boys? I don't think so.

Has Adam lallana made any match day squads yet this season? For one who showed so much promise it's sad yo look at his career today. Dropped from the England squad and dropped from the Liverpool squad.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Sep 2018 17:39:37
Think you will find Lallana is injured and has not been dropped by liverpool nor England.

Agree6 1Disagree

20 Sep 2018 18:17:10
Looks a bit like that Cokney fitness guy who my wife fancies.
But it got her into exercising, so I’m good with that.
I’m sure he will look good in our Nivea and Levi ads.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 20:46:49
I was at the game and I have to say if people think Hendo just passes sideways then watch Rabiot he takes passing sideways to a whole new level.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The relevance being what?}

20 Sep 2018 20:07:00
Well, he wasn't in the world Cup, despite playing in the champions league final. And he looked fit enough on pre season. Maybe not totally match sharp but he was all over the pitch.

He may have been injured for the reserves since, I don't know.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Sep 2018 21:24:56
The OP asked for people’s thoughts on Rabiot so I gave them my thoughts. Can’t see a problem with that Ed2.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - they all seem to think he will be joining Liverpool.}

20 Sep 2018 21:32:04
I don’t know anything about that mate. I just thought he was tidy but didn’t effect the game as he just went sideways and backwards every time he got the ball. That might be more about our press suffocating him but I just said it as I saw it.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 12:18:35
Did they play YNWA a few minutes earlier on Tuesday night? Was this to stop the champion's league anthem being sung over? It was finished before the players emerged from the tunnel.

Always like that Europe mate.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 Sep 2018 13:01:49
Haha, imagine being the poor sod who had to tell Liverpool fans they can't sing YNWA now because they branding guys want the Champions League music to play alone if that were the case.
