Finally learnt his name so I can post this.
Does anybody get reminded of Coutinho (when he first signed) by Curtis Jones?
The hair, the face fluff (not the face mind) and his quick feet all remind me of Couts when watching on the telly lol.

Unfortunately I haven't seen the young lad play yet. what's people's thought's on him?

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:10:15
that’s a shame Barry, any chance of watching the next friendly or not possible?
i’ve liked what I saw, he’s got quick feet and a burst of acceleration. he also seems to play all over the pitch, 1 minute he’s on the left side and the next he’s on the right or central. doesn't get pushed off the ball too easily and
doesn't seem to selfish on the ball either compared to say Kent who holds up the ball far too long sometimes.
can’t remember how well he tracked back though because he kept swapping sides of the pitch and I always lost him lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:12:07
He looks a player. But many do at that age and then disappear. I like the cut of his job though.

Been superb 3 games now.

Only 17.

Earned a spot in the squad for next year for me.

Been all over the park, constantly switching positions, nice touches, effective passes and great work rate.

Don’t know if it’s the right question or if has a definitive answer. But can someone tell me how france winning will affect the price if fekir, if in fact i will?
I mean as reported previously that Aulas wanted to wait till after the world cup to sell fekir as it would increase his value if france did well. Now France has won the cup but fekir only made cameo appearances of sorts, so how will this affect his price if at all it does. Thank you.

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It won’t make any difference.}

15 Jul 2018 20:44:00
What Lyon choose to do or not do is not influenced by France winning or losin g the WC neither does the deal hinge on whether Fekir wins the WC with Fance/ plays x amount of mins/ games or not.

On another note, still love nzonzi. Just him and witsel I think they have such a presence in midfield.

A ten minute sub appearance isn’t really fair to judge.

Agree17 2Disagree

15 Jul 2018 19:28:52
He’s played an average of 10 minutes per game. If you can tell anything from that you are the greatest judge of players in history.

Agree9 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 19:34:54
Wow judging a player on 10 mins.

Agree6 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 19:56:40
For the short time he was on. And fact France were happy sitting in holding their lead. I thought Fekir showed nice close control and footwork to hold onto ball or draw foul.

Agree9 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 20:06:26
Basing an attacking players performance on a 10min substitute appearance when his team are 2 goals up and trying to hold out for the final whistle.

"That Salah guy must not be any good given his world cup performances? don't see what the fuss is about. " Basing a players ability on a couple games let alone 10min is absurd.

Agree6 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 20:21:56
Tough to judge him based on his appearances in Ligue 1 as their league is utter shabbyte.

Agree3 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 20:37:24
I'm not saying don't sign him but he's had 25 x mins v Australia, 15 x Peru, 25 x Denmark, 10 x Argentina and 15 x Croatia and not shown anything out of the ordinary really.
He looked flat footed too, not particularly quick.
So my first impressions are not that impressed, that's all.

Agree2 7Disagree

15 Jul 2018 20:46:17
Yikes, Juicer! And you were able to make that out after watching him sporadically during the WC instead of doing some research to see how good this guy is (Youtube does not count as research) . That is just plain lazy.

Agree4 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 20:51:53
I wouldn't say he's been flat footed, showed some lovely quick feet even in his 10min in the final in order to draw a foul. He's definitely not quick but he's hardly slow and its important to note he's more of a CAM then a winger. Ligue 1 may not be the most challenging but he's looked immense against PSG in the league as well as teams abroad in the Europa League.

Agree3 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 21:16:56
Hasn't the premiership player of the year, not been won by players (Hazard, Mahrez, kante) brought in from the French league 3 of the last 4 seasons? Salah being the other winner. Yes the standard might not be up there with the premiership. But it certainly produces very good players.

Agree6 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 21:17:06
Why does he keep getting only 10 minutes.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 21:55:20
he’s played (roughly) 90 minutes over the entire tournament. Bit unfair to judge him on that to be honest, 10-20 minutes when france are usually seeing out the game is not worth attempting to judge an attacking player. Maybe defenders and deep midfielders yes but not anybody who's main role is to get forward and initiate attacks.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:01:25
Deschamps is the man to give that question to.
Klopp likes Fekir, his judgement is good enough for me.

I'm still not a fan of VAR even in super slow mo people have differing opinions on handballs etc but for me the biggest impact it would have in the prem is that it will disadvantage the smaller teams further as the bigger ones spend most of the game in their penalty area. I don't want the prem to end up a total precession with the top teams beating the little ones by cricket scores with 4 penalties. The refs are not great in England but I'd still leave it in their hands.

Agree4 5Disagree

15 Jul 2018 19:03:38
I agree with that. I like the idea of VAR but things are so subjective which is a big concern. Furthermore, it can take quite a while to come to a decision (as we saw today in the final) is that area needs improving.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 19:07:37
I don’t agree.

The other team will only have more penalties if the team has given away penalties.

VAR isn’t generally making incorrect decisions. The difference is that it is highlighting instances where infringements aren’t seen or are more debatable to refs in the moment and clarifying them as penalties.

Agree10 2Disagree

15 Jul 2018 20:18:35
Personally i think your all missing the major point of how poor the refereeing was at the world cup.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 20:57:51
OP, I disagree. VAR does not review everything. In the WC, there are things that VAR is allowed to review like potential fouls in the box that lead to penalties or goals, goals scored or disallowed in real time, and offsides that lead to goals as in, situations that change games. VAR is not allowed to review a tackle in midfield.
VAR is just a replay system that allows the ref to take a look at key incidents (Which are already selected) that they otherwise may not have been able to see in real time. It does not mean it will get it right all the time as that is and has NEVER been the goal or video replay. It is used to get decisions correct for the MOST part however, VAR or not, the decision is made by the ref and no one else.

Therefore, I do not see where smaller teams will be harmed by this provided everyone knows what the ref can use VAR for and what he can't. If there is a penalty for Wolves vs City at the Emptyhad and VAR is used to review it correctly, there is nothing anyone can do about it. The fear here is that the ref uses VAR and sees that it is a penalty and then bottles it. Thais the fear we should all have, IMO.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 21:17:08
It doesn't even get decisions right. It got one wrong in the World Cup final why would we want that?

Agree1 2Disagree

15 Jul 2018 21:57:15
Den, that would help us though when we can’t break down stubborn teams, and i’m sure you won’t complain then ;)

I agree though i’ve never liked VAR and never will. Human error is what makes things "fun"

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:02:32
VAR doesn't make decisions. It's still people that do that bit. And they'll still get it wrong.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 22:04:16
I can only assume some responses are from children. Var simply gives the ref the opportunity to review a decision or an incident which he hadn't seen for what ever reason. Var doesn't make decision s, that still rests with the ref. Var resulted in some great decisions in the world Cup, giving core t penalties and cancelling out one that was incorrectly awarded by the ref.

I for one am all for it and will judge the success of var once fully Implemented.

Megasharkopod! Excellent stuff! Cheers Ed.

Agree3 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 18:55:49
Thank you for that Ed002.

Liverpool’s round up is around 33mins to 45 mins. Fascinating to hear the players we have looked at, but Eds summation is that we will get 1/ 2 keepers (2 if Ward leaves, 1 if not, Migs likely going to Italy) and an attacking midfielder.

GK most likely Navas (although Ed says this is difficult right now) or Butland. Oblak is almost certainly a no, and Alisson is unlikely/ difficult.

AM, possibly still Fekir, or Draxler is a potential. Or Shaqiri may play that role.

Gini likely to leave.

Thanks again for that Ed002. I’d like Butland and Fekir, I’d love if Alisson’s ‘difficulties’ could be overcome 😀.

Agree9 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 18:56:48
Thanks ed. It's just getting stupid. I think where waiting Roma and there asking price out tbh, the closer we get to August 12th the closer we get to English money leaving the table, him then having a half season compared to this and not being able to get close to there dream money for him.

Agree0 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 19:03:11
I’d be happy with Butland. I think he’s better suited to the Premier League. Given that Alisson and Oblak are absolute non starter. Plus we know he can handle a cold wet night in the middle of November in Stoke.

Agree2 1Disagree

15 Jul 2018 19:19:11
Cheers Ed002. Great listen. I just listened to the first 45 minutes whilst I had a relaxing cold bath. I'll listen to the rest later because the Mrs is shouting something about "bread/ milk" and "shops closing soon" through the door. Apologies in advance for the picture of me in the tub.

Agree3 2Disagree

15 Jul 2018 19:29:34
I hope we sign Navas.

Agree2 6Disagree

15 Jul 2018 19:32:06
Cheers for that, Ed, much appreciated. Not sure who was first or even what it was, but there was a definite vocal lick from Surfin Bird by The Trashmen in the intro to Liverpool's roundup there.

As for signings, I think we suffered by not being able to break down defensive teams last year and the Fekir/ Brandt/ Draxler type signing I think would be mainly used when that extra midfielder is not as vital, which turned out to be the majority of the time last time around. It makes sense to me, but I think you're right Ed. There are definitely times it will be too attacking a lineup. Plus, a utility attacking mid/ forward who can push up when one of the front guys is having an off day or needs a rest would be a welcome addition.

15 Jul 2018 20:20:55
Thank you Ed. That certainly clears up a few things. It could be that once one of the top goalies like Courtois move it could trigger others, I don’t know. I wonder it Fekir (with his injury history) is a risk with the high intensity play that Klop likes. But then I heard Draxler is very injury prone, so who knows. I don’t think he was mentioned but I’m assuming Lallana will leave?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Draxler is not “vert injury prone”.}

15 Jul 2018 20:30:57
What's the obsession with Alisson? He did nothing for Roma when we scored about 30 goals against them and has shown nothing in the World Cup to show he's at the level to demand anywhere near that kind of money.

Agree1 3Disagree

15 Jul 2018 20:44:45
He had a great season with Roma EpicPotato, you can't judge him on two games against possibly the best attack in Europe and a few WC performances. The lad is top notch mate. What would you say to somebody who only watched De Gea in the world cup and said 'what's the obsession with De Gea? ' I'm sure you might be saying how he's the best GK in the world and you can't just judge him on his performances at the WC.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jul 2018 20:59:58
He's the best option available other than strachkosha (spelt wrong but from lazio)

He's older, wiser and full international but 40 million is just simply to much for a gk that Sri has question marks over him.

I'm unsure why we haven't gone in for a good experience German gk like Ralph fahrmann, give some home feel for karius, mentor, and someone whose a very good gk.
