{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Review Of The Day 19th June 2018

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jun 2018 07:22:27
Thanks for the update Ed.

Happy news about Brewster, I hope he can live up to the hype!

{Ed001's Note - I just worry about Klopp playing him to keep him happy, rather than because he deserves the chance. That could become an issue.}

19 Jun 2018 07:33:15
Morning Ed, cheers mate. Hope it's a great day for you and everybody else!

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate.}

19 Jun 2018 07:42:43
Cheers for that ed. can't believe a player refusing to come on for their country. Spot on by the manager to send him home.

{Ed001's Note - he is a bit of an arse anyway apparently. His time at Blackburn Rovers was peppered with him doing similar things.}

19 Jun 2018 08:00:18
Thanks ed. FGR seventh signing, just staggering. Would have loved to have seen Lemar at LFC. Never mind. Have a good one boys.

{Ed001's Note - lower league clubs seem to have shifted to short term contracts for players, so they are seeing massive turnover in playing staff each season now. I guess it is better than being financially crippled by a player on a long term contract that they get stuck with.}

19 Jun 2018 08:16:59
Hopefully Brewster jumps at the chance, works his socks off and doesn't take it for granted like you said. I'd love a player coming through the ranks next season! A few times last season we had Woodburn on the bench say 3-0 up with 15 to play and I was urging klopp to bring him on, but it didn't happen much.

{Ed001's Note - it is frustrating, but I hope Klopp knew what he was doing.}

19 Jun 2018 09:01:59
Ed do you think Brewster will be ahead of Ings, Solanke, Woodburn etc next season?

{Ed001's Note - Woodburn is not a striker, but yes, he will probably be ahead of Ings and Solanke. I expect Ings to leave, though the player himself would prefer to stay.}

19 Jun 2018 09:14:19
It'd make sense now if Ings left actually considering Brewster has his new deal, I'd like to see both him and Solanke given more of a chance next season, fingers crossed for the lads and good luck to Ings should he end up elsewhere, always liked Ings but he's just had his fair share of bad luck here unfortunately.

19 Jun 2018 10:09:58
Cheers for the update ed as per usual best way to start my morning lol
Brewster seems very impatient but most kids are nowadays
I like him he seems to have a bit of pace and can finish but first team worthy not sure about that tbh.

{Ed001's Note - he has real quality but not sure he is ready either. Only one way to find out though.}

19 Jun 2018 12:44:53
Firmino, Solanke and Brewster is a bit of risk to have such untested backup strikers on the bench, but I’d be fine with that if we have a top player coming in who can play out wide (eg fekir) as Salah and Mane can also play through the middle if required.

19 Jun 2018 16:19:09
Fekir is capable of playing up front too.

19 Jun 2018 04:56:18
Ed01 do we have profiling on Nabil Fekir (by you) . if yes please share the link.

{Ed001's Note - I haven't done him yet, but I have added him to the list.}

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Jun 2018 23:32:11
Have i missed something but a mare in the pub said we have or are going to look at the Swansea keeper?
Is it true.

Agree1 Disagree4

18 Jun 2018 23:40:38
I don’t think that horses can talk, maybe you had one too many beers.

{Ed002's Note - Mr Ed?}

18 Jun 2018 23:41:35
Hope not. Terrible keeper.

19 Jun 2018 00:16:58
I've always thought fabianski was a decent keeper. He is decent but not great. His best days are passed him and I would put him on a par with migs these days. I hope we look elsewhere.

19 Jun 2018 00:31:21
Straight from the horses mouth! Must be true!

19 Jun 2018 09:28:21
A mare? Are you referring to a woman or have you mis-typed the word man? If you're referring to a woman, you ought to alter your use of language like that. not really wanted here.
If it was actually a female horse, then I'd be interested to know which pub it was. Our local doesn't serve horses, only donkeys and zebras.

18 Jun 2018 23:17:58
Nabil Fékir's agent Jean-Pierre Bernes tonight on French TV on why his client didn't sign for Liverpool: "Um he didn't sign because um. it is not over! This is not the end of the story. ".

{Ed0333's Note - as Ed’s 001 keeps saying ‘it’s not over’

Agree6 Disagree1

19 Jun 2018 00:18:46
Apparently fekir sees himself as a liverpool player. I still think he will sign and I'm more excited by the signing now. He looks z real talent. Look at the French players who didn't make the world cup side in his position.

18 Jun 2018 22:12:11
Can I apologise for my ignorant comments earlier. Aoe laid the bait and I bit. Sorry if I offended you aoe, you're a good poster. Sorry to ed01 if I got your back up. I can confirm, people do talk rubbish about scousers down south. Your city is loved by me though, there's a buzz to Liverpool that you don't find everywhere. I think in part it has something to do with liverpool fc's success.

{Ed001's Note - my back up? That would involve too much effort, don't worry mate.}

Agree2 Disagree4

18 Jun 2018 22:25:28
OK thanks ed01.

{Ed002's Note - It seems there has been a misunderstanding and Ed001 has been laying face down and naked waiting for you to shave his back.}

18 Jun 2018 23:12:41
Classic ed2 ;)

19 Jun 2018 00:44:07
Brilliant as always Ed.

19 Jun 2018 00:57:53
PH well done mate for stepping up to apologies.
Gestures like yours prevent this site from becoming trashy.

Great to see.

19 Jun 2018 04:58:35
Classy Prince Hendo.

{Ed001's Note - agreed Redhof, it is much easier to just say nothing but he chose to stand up and say sorry. Though I am still waiting for my back shaving....}

19 Jun 2018 07:56:47
I often disagree with you PH but that's sound mate. Good man. I heard Ed1 is a bit like chewbacca, don't go for the asda no frills razors mate, they just won't cut it!

{Ed001's Note - damn who told you that? Just because it is true doesn't mean it doesn't hurt!}

19 Jun 2018 08:15:09
Ed333 told me so mate, he has a thing for chewbacca looking fellas apparently, I'd be careful if I were you! You might be laid there, waiting for PH to come in and shave your back but instead, Ed333 might come in with one of them weird grins, you know, like a chucky grin. Stay safe mate ;) .

{Ed001's Note - it wouldn't be the first time that has happened.}

19 Jun 2018 08:51:19
It’s all good prince hendo mate- i wrongly assumed everyone knew I was oirish but thinking back I’d only said it a couple times many moons ago so in fairness, how can anybody remember little details. I know it was semi heated but I genuinely found the posts quite interesting, looking in from the outside. I always knew Liverpool was the greatest part of England, but I wasn’t really aware of the crap the region takes from the rest of the country.

18 Jun 2018 21:58:44
Definitely not LFC relatedbut

Did I see Ant from Ant and Dec playing right wing for Switzerland?

Can't be anyone else with a forehead that big-surely.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jun 2018 06:00:52
A fivehead.

18 Jun 2018 21:55:39
And as England won- it can now be said without sounding like Sour Grapes.

All the officials in that game were absolutely shocking.

{Ed025's Note - very much so mate..

Agree14 Disagree2

18 Jun 2018 21:58:18
Anyone else think it was payback for the poisoning accusations against Russia?! It was like MMA on Kane!

18 Jun 2018 22:26:27
Awful reffing, VAR pointless if it goes on in the box and nothing doing!

18 Jun 2018 23:09:32
Can someone explain to me what the advantage of the current version of VAR is over a review based system?

Tonight England would have had two penalties if Kane had been allowed to call for a review (as Captain, not the fouled player) .

The current system is proving the technology works but the implementation sucks.

19 Jun 2018 00:09:53
They were terrible but England are hated so we best get accustomed to it.
A blatant disregard by the VAR referee to intervene and request his on field colleague take another look at both challenges on Kane tells you all you need to know, in every other match they have done so, FIFA are a disgrace and I’m not really bothered about England but that is bent officiating and I abhor that as an honest referee.

19 Jun 2018 01:31:13
sorry putney although i agree england should have had 2 penalties no player should be able to call for a review, even the captain. the rules they have given the officials are absolute stupid like no flagging tight offside calls Var will officiate them calls absolute nonsense, i don't approve of var i also don't approve the new offside rules go back to the original rule offside is offside, sorry i drift off topic, but like tonight if the decisions are not consistent there is no reason for it to be there.

19 Jun 2018 06:02:41
Lol @ Kdfirst.

I think if Russia wanted to pay back the UK they wouldn’t waste their time with referees 😄.

19 Jun 2018 06:41:34
I think the VAR system how it has been working this World Cup is nearly perfect. The one thing that could be added is as mentioned above a challenge system. One challenger per game, from the captain direct to the ref. However this can only work if refs are stronger and book players when they are encouraging refs to review. That ref in the England game yesterday was very weak.

{Ed001's Note - and needs to be speeded up.}

19 Jun 2018 08:52:43
I’ll keep saying it, the crowd love the screens. It keeps the momentum of the game up. Need to get screens into the premier league and it’ll add to the spectacle.

19 Jun 2018 09:24:53
Aoe, in tennis and cricket the crowd love watching the reviews on the screen, really gets them involved. I'd be all for that.

19 Jun 2018 21:06:21
i was thinking the officiating has been great this world cup

englands referee: "Hold my bear"

18 Jun 2018 21:23:35
I'm from Northern Ireland but like to see England so well in tournaments but
Cannot believe how negative the commentary and Keown in particular was about Hendo. I thought he was
Excellent, he just can't win these days. As
For Ashley Young playing in a world
Cup I'll
Never know. Ridiculous. Thought England were good and hope they line up a second round game against Senegal or Columbia.

{Ed025's Note - young was awful and hendo was ok..

Agree11 Disagree1

18 Jun 2018 21:32:43
Cheers Ed, thought Hendo was better than ol, can u imagine Dier having such a range of passing! Isrs to me like if they don’t play for Utd or spurs they get slated.

18 Jun 2018 21:42:20
Hendo got slat d for not playing the ball forward enough

However- most of the time after the 1st 10 mind but before 80minsvthete was little movement for him to play into.

Time and time again since Italia’ 90 we’ve heard pundits saying how crucial it is to keep the ball at International Tournaments.

Hendo keeps the ball = criticism
Hendo plays ball forward and gives ball away = criticism.

{Ed025's Note - he needs better quality around him agger..

18 Jun 2018 21:54:21
There’s a reason why there are so many forward thinking foreign players in the EPL - and it’s not just money.

Their movement, ability to take the ball on the half turn, awareness of space around them and above all their patience - is something sadly lacking in the English game.

Much rather “get it forward quickly and early” and run about like idiots for 90mins.

That’ll be the way to win the World Cup won’t it.

Hendo has Firmino, Mane and Salah all making intelligent runs off the ball- and it makes a huge difference.

18 Jun 2018 21:54:38
I personally think Alli should of been subbed as soon as he felt the knock, once that happened we lost our momentum and it became a slog. Nice to see them find a way to win though.

18 Jun 2018 22:13:33
I thought Hendo was great tonight. Keown might have moaned but linekar and co said he was excellent.

18 Jun 2018 22:39:25
How young is starting for England beggars belief.

18 Jun 2018 22:57:11
Great to see them win and hope they progress, but how have we gone from the era of scholes, Lampard, Gerrard, Ferdinand, Terry, Cashly, Beckham, Owen, God to this, they're not legends in their mams and dads house's.

Is it the influx of foreigners in the Prem?

18 Jun 2018 23:18:44
Young team I guess idllk. I think the guys after this crop will be the most exciting, we might even win something.

It's so like England though. "no pressure this time, we aren't expecting them to win it" we won our first game and now it's "we can win this"

I am excited when it's world cup but my buzz for today's game was ziltch compared to the ucl final. Hope the lads do well, I don't see us going further than 1/ 4 finals.

18 Jun 2018 20:57:10
Watching England and I must admit ed001, I thought maguire was okay - never really watched him mind. But Jesus Christ he is awful, he wins everything in the air but he's a donkey and has the pace of matip carrying van dijk.

Agree11 Disagree4

18 Jun 2018 21:17:47
Firmane, Maguire is one reason why England will never get anywhere in football as a whole esp. internationally. As soon as a player is able to pass the ball a bit esp. for a CB, he gets hyped up and after a few "MOTD" highlights, the gets hyped up and before you know it "could be an England call up in the offing".

To me, Maguire has always been a poor defender, a complete liability. I mean, just watch him play. He is slow, has stiff hips, gets turned without the striker even breaking a sweat and frankly lacks positioning. Yes, he can pass the ball out of the back BUT so can Mustafi, Stones, Matip, Otamendi and the list goes on, none of who I would pick over Lovren who not only can pass out the back (with both feet), he can actually defend when on his game. If as a CB, you are able to defend comfortably vs CR7 in wide areas like he did in the CL final, then you are doing something right. Maguire is is awful and LC and England are welcome to him.

18 Jun 2018 21:29:14
Honestly he wouldn't look out of place behind the wheel of a john Deere tractor. Put a bit of straw in house mouth to chew on.

18 Jun 2018 22:05:53
Spot on, MM. Loved it.

18 Jun 2018 20:50:52
He can't hold the ball up
His movements awful

But right place, right time again.

Agree5 Disagree3

18 Jun 2018 20:58:52
He’ll be hailed Harry the hero but Henderson was the only England player with a clue.

18 Jun 2018 21:06:30
Omg how are going to get kane's head on the plane will need a bigger door! !

{Ed025's Note - hes great thats why..

18 Jun 2018 21:08:49
And trippier.

18 Jun 2018 21:19:03
Spot on, Koppite. Hendo was the only one who seemed like he knew what he was doing. The likes of Lingard, Alli and Sterling where just getting in each other's way. As for Rashford, the lest said the better.

{Ed025's Note - red tinted view right there..

18 Jun 2018 21:34:35
Hendo once again doing the stuff that nobody sees.
That’s why when he’s fit, he’s so an important cog the the wheel.

18 Jun 2018 21:28:45
Henderson was played well, he kept possession well and played some decent passes.

{Ed025's Note - he did not let anyone down..

18 Jun 2018 21:31:23
I agree on the 3 u mentioned but Rashford was ok when he came on.
For some reason those 3 lads don't know how to shoot/ connect with the ball properly. Bad training.

18 Jun 2018 21:38:14
Awful game in the main. Very little quality. Hendo done ok, nothing special and they are lucky they have a top striker in Harry Kane. Pretty much what was expected really. can't see them going too far.

{Ed025's Note - spot on for me irish..

18 Jun 2018 21:43:52
Tbf I thought Rashford and Loftus-Cheek injected some much needed movement and pace.

18 Jun 2018 22:01:08
I thought Hendo had a decent game in a very mediocre team. Kane scored twice which will get him the plaudits and rightly so, but added nothing else to the game. Maguire was terrible and Sterling, he was just bloody awful.

18 Jun 2018 22:03:06
Ed25, Hendo was good, not great. Nothing red-tinted about it as many on the thread agree with that. You are free to differ as always.

19 Jun 2018 21:56:15
He’s that lad at school who just shoots. He’s been awful all game but got two goals haha.
