Just wanted to know if any of the eds had the latest info regarding clyne
Surely he can't be staying here for another season but if he is I will support him as per usual but really hope he gets a move somewhere else as he really hurts us attacking wise when he plays.
Decent enough player but I think our style of play and tactics don't suit his strengths.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - there has been little interest in him due to his injuries last season.}

1.) 06 Aug 2018 13:49:23
A bit late now to get a good right back in, I don't see him going anywhere. As poor as he is offensively, he's pretty good defensively and we need that more than his attacking attributes.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 14:19:37
personally I see Clyne as 2nd choice RB this season with Gomez being an option for CB. Matip will likely spend a lot of time injured so I reckon they'll be enough games for Gomez at CB and Clyne is decent enough to play a few cup games at RB.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 18:28:19
I agree, I don’t think he’s that bad as a second choice, as long as his hearts in it. Worst comes to worst and he plays a few games, he’s experienced and hopefully can hold his own defencively.

4.) 06 Aug 2018 19:23:37
There's been nothing wrong with him defensively so far, just his fitness. If is heart isn't in it, he won't get game time. Simple as.

5.) 06 Aug 2018 21:40:34
I don’t think he’s good enough as a back up RB, Trent is still young and will need to be rested now and again, that means your going to need to have to rely on Clyne for several games a season, I don’t think I have ever seen him have a good game for us, he would be the weak link and opponents will exploit that.

6.) 06 Aug 2018 22:24:14
Exactly mikey, he's not good enough for this level of football, or even close imo. Defensively he is terrible, Trent is a young lad and is already 10 x the player Clyne is. I'd put Fabinho, Milner or Gomex before Clyne.

7.) 06 Aug 2018 22:34:03
To say Clyne has never had a good game for us is rubbish. Yes there are better attacking full backs out there but I believe he has a big part to play this season. Trent has made the position his own but there
Aren’t many right backs out there better as a back up.

If u think there are then name them. The likes of Walker and Valencia are hugely overrated. Azpilaqeta (excuse spelling) is prob the best about but no chance of getting him.

At the end of the day we need squad players as well as starters to be successful, they can’t all be world beaters.

8.) 06 Aug 2018 23:21:37
You can easily name several better right backs from Liverpool alone.

9.) 07 Aug 2018 06:04:49
I like Clyne. Between him and Trent we have RB sorted.

10.) 07 Aug 2018 06:45:53
Go ahead then Mikey. and remember, Fabinio wAs bought as a midfielder, Milner has proven himself in midfield and only played left back for one season due to necessity.

TAA and Gomez who will spend more time at centre back this year.


11.) 07 Aug 2018 07:34:27
if Clyne plays a bad game, we’ll just have to score more goals 🤔.

12.) 07 Aug 2018 08:11:14
How long has Clyne been here now? And Klopp too?
If Klopp thought Clyne wasn't up to the job, he'd be gone.
Ask Balotelli.

13.) 07 Aug 2018 08:21:45
Problem is FTR who would want Clyne? that's why we're stuck with him mate lol.

14.) 07 Aug 2018 10:09:12
Try saying we're stuck with him if Trent Arnold gets injured or suspended.

15.) 07 Aug 2018 11:39:13
I will do mate because he still won't get a game, Milner or Gomez will be before him maybe even Fabinho.

16.) 07 Aug 2018 12:56:44
Don't see that happening at all. Clyne still has a role to play this season, he'll play more at right back than any other player except TTA. Providing he's not injured of course.

17.) 08 Aug 2018 04:13:00
Clyne and Camacho have played at RB. I don't think the other players will play there. Gomez hasn't been used much there lately so I think Klopp has moved him to his favoured CB position.

TAA and Clyne as second choice. That's the RB position for this season in my view according to preseason. Klopp has been playing everyone where he'll use them during the season I believe.



27 Jun 2018 17:35:52
Bobby Duncan signed for 200k
Gerrards cousin I think.

Johncrow Junior

1.) 27 Jun 2018 18:08:29
Welcome to Liverpool lad. Anybody actually seen him play, if so any good?

2.) 27 Jun 2018 18:14:39
He's 17.

3.) 27 Jun 2018 20:57:57
Only seen highlights of one game against Liverpools kids, Salah. He scored but it was as much bad goal keeping as a great finish. Don't remember anything else as it was over a year ago.

4.) 27 Jun 2018 21:14:50
Did he play for man city.

5.) 27 Jun 2018 21:23:13
Remember the last left footed striker from Liverpool a one Robbie Fowler a. k. a god, step forward bobby Duncan maybe an omen, I hope so!

6.) 27 Jun 2018 21:28:33
Folks calm down he's 17.

7.) 27 Jun 2018 22:23:47
Hahahaha I am just playing he is a kid with a lot too prove and his whole career in front of him, you don't get called god for nothing and Fowler stepped immediately up too the plate, if the talent is there lucky us and hopefully he fulfills his potential.

8.) 28 Jun 2018 11:58:49
He’s got big boots to fill for being the next bobby in Liverpool.

9.) 28 Jun 2018 16:17:09
Only English player to score a hat trick against Brazil at any level. At U17 level I believe.

10.) 28 Jun 2018 16:32:42
Bobby played in the same school team as my lad. He’s a fantastic finisher, who can score any type of goal.

Saw him last year or so for City against Cackpool (Blackpool) and he’s motivated solely by scoring goals, which is an obvious must for a striker!

Reminds me a little of Aguero, similar stature, huge thighs and truly deadly if you give him a chance!

Going forward, I don’t know if he suits our current way of playing, but I guess it’s up to him.

Hope he forces his way through!

11.) 28 Jun 2018 18:06:05
We should have signed Ricky Bobby instead

‘If you ain’t first, you’re last! ’.

12.) 30 Jun 2018 14:06:10
“Bobby Duncan signed for 200k
Gerrards cousin I think”

Seems consistent. They both went for 2 first names instead of a proper surname 🙄.



28 May 2018 23:30:41
I know we have been linked very hard with Fekir but a little birdy tells me it is Malcolm we really want
not sure how this will turn out but it is malcolm more then Fekir according to the little birdy
just passing it on lads.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed0333's Note - over to Ed’s 002

1.) 28 May 2018 23:42:04
Malcolm is a talented player.

2.) 29 May 2018 03:45:08
Malcom is a winger, Fekir a CAM. It will be both if Malcom is the winger Klopp wants, not one of the two.
The UCl final was a clear indication we need another wide player in case Salah or Mane cannot play and Fekir is a CAM that will bring more creativity to our workmanlike midfield.
Fabinho, Keita and Fekir! BOOM! Bet Harry will be the happiest LFC fan alive if that happens.

3.) 29 May 2018 05:34:27
Wait so what's going to happen to Hender (backpass) en, Mil (not that boring) ner and Gini?

4.) 29 May 2018 06:12:07
Regardless if any wife player coming in, if Fekir does come it would signal to me Klopp switching to a very attacking 4231 starting formation next year, with Fekir behind Bobby. This would leave Fabinho, Hendo, Wiji, Milner, Ox, Lallana and Keita vying for the remaining midfield positions, although Ox and Lallana could be cover/ rotation for Fekir I suppose. All opinion and guess work of course, but if true I would imagine at least 2 will leave.

5.) 29 May 2018 06:55:42
I hope we haven’t resorted to signing wives now 😲.

6.) 29 May 2018 07:20:45
I'd prefer to see Malcolm in the Middle :)

{Ed025's Note - love it burkey..

7.) 29 May 2018 08:00:14
Speaking of wives. turns out, Fabinho's wife was the only ITK posting hints of their future over the weekend. There's a picture of her supporting Liverpool on Saturday night, doing the rounds ;)

8.) 29 May 2018 08:49:10
Thanks for the info Johncrow.

9.) 29 May 2018 09:18:50
you welcome Salah mate
it may turn out to be crap but thought I would share
albeit now Lemar seems to have come back into the frame as well according to Lequipe
So my little birdy looks like he may have given me duff info lol.

10.) 29 May 2018 12:50:19
Well for now we know we are looking for a coutinho replacement (Fekir, Lemar), cover wide (Dembele, Malcom, Lemar, Pulisic), Goalkeeper Cover (Navas, Butland) or First choice (Alisson) and Centerbacks cover (Tarkowski) .



15 May 2018 20:42:23
What a disgrace that Germany can call up Kevin trapp for their world cup squad who has played only 4 league games for them all season and leave out Karius
wow im in disbelief, go and win the champions league son and stick it to them.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed025's Note - wait till brover hears that he will be gutted..

1.) 15 May 2018 20:51:03
It's a disgrace? Really?

2.) 15 May 2018 21:11:56
'go and win the champions league son and stick it to them. '

Exactly mate. He'll be the one laughing in the end WHEN we win that CL.

3.) 15 May 2018 23:39:15
Karius, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson and Matip won't be at the WC. I might be a bit selfish here but that gives the bulk of our defence at least 2 weeks more time pre season. Milner Winjaldum and Keita also getting a full pre season I'm not complaining could be a blessing.

4.) 15 May 2018 23:23:20
Ha ha ha Ed025 😂😂😂😂. The German buffoon “Karius” misses out. Conspiracy 😂😂😂.

5.) 16 May 2018 07:08:31
Is it a disgrace? He’s only reallly played 6 months of proper football this year and 10 games the season before that.

If you’re not first choice GK for world cups then any other call up is essentially anonymous shy of injuries.

6.) 16 May 2018 07:54:36
Surely neither were likely to play or even go in the final squad, you normally take three and neuer and ter Stegen will be first choice. Leno will be third and likely not even play.

7.) 16 May 2018 09:22:24
on the flip side any player not going to the world cup gets a proper rest over the summer and can come back earlier to pre season refreshed rather than burnt out like we have seen a number of players in previous seasons.

8.) 16 May 2018 09:26:08
I'm surprised either was chosen, but if I was choosing one then it would certainly be Karius over Trapp.

9.) 16 May 2018 09:31:27
Could it possibly be that Trapp is considered a better keeper than Karius? You'd be hard pressed to find a non-liverpool fan who rates him highly.

10.) 16 May 2018 10:31:02
Bit of perspective. Karius has played 2 thirds of a season and has been reasonably solid. Doesn’t make him an automatic World Cup selection. When it comes to World Cup squads the Germans know what they’re doing.

11.) 16 May 2018 11:12:41
Don't know why people keep knocking Karius. His record of clean sheets against games played is as good as De Gea. 10 in 19 games played against 18 in 37 games played for De Gea

Karious averages 1.55 goals conceded per game and De Gea 1.33.

12.) 16 May 2018 12:10:07
i would put clean sheets down to Vvd more than karius. he punched stoke player in head and pushed the ball to dzeko. how many MOM has he had. performance more important than goals conceded. he's a 7 at best. de gea is a 9 on an off day. We need a 9 Gk or another world class Cb to deal with his flapping.

13.) 16 May 2018 12:23:59
I'm not knocking him at all and have faith he can be our no1 and continue to improve. i just don't think it's outrageous trapp has been chosen over him.

anyone outraged by that has red tinted specs on, sorry.

14.) 16 May 2018 12:51:40
No one said it was outrageous that he wasnt picked. It was that he wasnt picked and that a keeper (in fact two keepers but Neuer is more understandable who has basically not played this season was picked while he wasnt.

15.) 16 May 2018 13:17:38
thank you hjikle for understanding the point i was making about Trapp.

16.) 16 May 2018 15:17:13
Trapp is a poor keeper by any standard, how he got in ahead of Karius who has been playing actual football is amazing, but he will come back fresh after no extra football so a win for us.

17.) 16 May 2018 15:53:18
You are right hjikle no one said it was outrageous that Trapp was picked over Karius, the OP said that it was a disgrace. I can think of many things that are a disgrace but that is not one of them!

18.) 16 May 2018 16:46:25
Comparing stats Karius against De Gea? Come on, even the most blinded LFC fan wouldn't think Karius is in the same league as De Gea, Stats can really contort views of players.

19.) 16 May 2018 17:08:40
Definitely agree Karius could be a top keeper if he keeps improving like the second half of the season. I think his decisiveness has been his weaker area and no surprise with influence in Migs. VVD seems to have had a really good influence on Karius collecting the ball and when not to. But credit to the lad for taking the pressure of past performances and turning it around. Also, maybe taking Karius to the world up is too soon though, one slip up could imbalance his confidence and impact his performance in the next season, seeing as his confidence is only built of late.

20.) 16 May 2018 17:42:40
“even the most blinded LFC fan wouldn't think Karius is in the same league as De Gea“

I thought they were both in the premier league 😉.

21.) 16 May 2018 17:57:15
Boom boom Ron.
In all seriousness tho, maybe Karius just isn't rated by others as highly as some Liverpool fans rate him. It doesn't surprise me he didn't make it.

22.) 16 May 2018 18:27:05
I think you're after "distort", Lancaster Red ;-)

23.) 16 May 2018 20:03:09
Sorry but I still don't think Karius is anywhere near good enough for us. He has improved but I think that is more to do with the improved defence in front of him.

24.) 17 May 2018 07:34:20
'I still don't think Karius is anywhere near good enough for us'

Nah he's not is he mate, he's only part of the team who are in the CL final, but nah not good enough for us is he. Come off it, he's a decent keeper and still very young for a keeper. From what we've seen of him how you can say he's not anywhere near good enough for us is beyond me. He took over the number 1 spot suddenly and then things changed, do you think we'd of been in the final or 4th if Migs was kept in goal? I don't. Give the lad praise, he deserves it.

25.) 17 May 2018 10:30:22
No contort is fine in the context thanks ha, Karius isn't near top level, he is an improvement in Mignolet and that's where people are thinking he is upto the job, he produce some good performances but still doesn't look like winning us games, he has an unease about him that isn't going away, he made a couple of vital. saves in games at a time when we were rocking but that should be standard, he isn't top level or going to be imo.

Ed 001
I rememeber (showing my age now I think lol) the speculation for ages linking us with Peter Ndlovu, Les Ferdinand and Stan Collymore
tbh I wanted Peter to sign badly especially after his Hat trick against us at Anfield but we ended up going for Stan in the end.
Who would you have signed out of the three?

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - Ferdinand defo. He was top class, Ndlovu was too hit and miss.}

1.) 01 Nov 2018 12:43:32

2.) 01 Nov 2018 14:03:06
Ferdinand without a doubt. He was quick, strong, good in the air, could shoot with both feet. He had everything u would want in a striker.

3.) 01 Nov 2018 15:15:43
Kevin Gallen, another linked with Liverpool on numerous occasions. Frightening potential, sadly, largely unfulfilled.

{Ed001's Note - I worked with his cousin Paul for a while, and Kevin was never that good potentially. Nowhere near top class and never had the ability to be that.}

4.) 01 Nov 2018 15:39:24
Oh nice, Potential was perhaps overplayed in the media at the time, he was touted as the next big thing. I was not privy to know anyone with close links to this particular player, so the feedback is Interesting. Thanks Ed 👍.

{Ed001's Note - he was alright like but just another player.}

5.) 01 Nov 2018 23:17:50
Ah yes I remember them well😂.



31 Oct 2018 14:54:01
Have to admit used to be a fan of Razor Ruddock but my mate just told me he openly admitted to going out with the intention of breaking Andy coles legs and did so as well
Shame as I used to really like him while at Anfield
gone down in my opinion for that comment.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - that is nothing unusual for that ****. Really can't stand Ruddock.}

1.) 31 Oct 2018 16:02:24
Just read the comments after seeing this! I had no idea! Sounds like a complete bell! What was the view of him around the club Ed01 if you know?

{Ed001's Note - he was a dick and known to be so.}

2.) 31 Oct 2018 16:11:57
Didn't this happen in a reserve game Ed? I met him at one of his speaking dinner's, absolutely shi%e I'm afraid, did not enjoy it one bit. Openly spoke about bullying a lot of players actually and about how lazy he was and what he got away with etc etc. Did tell us he came very close to joining Blackburn and had an offer of utd but chose to join us. Worse luck. Only good thing about his night was the bar stayed open till about 5 a. M. Because boy can that man drink.

{Ed001's Note - he was drinking the night before the 'white suits' final, hence why he was dropped as he was seen, according to friends of mine who were there, stood on a table, trousers and pants rounds his ankles, singing and waving his pint about while his nose was smeared in white powder. Then the prick had the cheek to complain about being dropped for the match!}

3.) 31 Oct 2018 16:36:26
Turd comes to mind mate, the talent to make it and spoil it by being a goon. More fool him I guess. Thoughts on him as a player? I first remember him at the very end of his Liverpool career so I was maybe 9 or 10.always used to notice him waving aimlessly for an offside flag and looking about 5 stone overweight.

4.) 31 Oct 2018 17:04:32
How do players get away with doing drugs? With such regular testing by clubs and FAs, you'd expect a lot more people to have been exposed, unless of course, it's all being covered up.

{Ed025's Note - they get inside information of when a tester is coming zpecialone, just like rio did when he was bang to rights so he then disappeared..

5.) 31 Oct 2018 17:31:43
He was useless if we'd have backed Roy Evans with money for a decent defender instead of giving him Scales, Babb and Ruddock we'd have won the league, all 3 were crap but Ruddock was by far the worst.

6.) 31 Oct 2018 19:32:03
Wow, Ed01. What a story. I NEVER rated the guy and read that he was a true piece of work BUT he was that bad as in, pants down his ankles, sniffing dope dead drunk before an FA Cup game? Now that, just takes the biscuit for me, really.

7.) 31 Oct 2018 19:11:08
Jeez Rio? And all this going on before that final?! 😱
Eds - not looking for actual examples, but is it going on these days as well?

{Ed025's Note - probably mate..

8.) 31 Oct 2018 19:43:32
He seems to like getting his bits out when he gets the chance. A bit of an embarrassment really. Certainly not a person for the kids to look up to.

9.) 31 Oct 2018 19:57:25
Ruddock epitomised, for me, everything as to why we didn’t do as well as we should have done during that period.

We were coined the “Spice Boys”, some of the senior pros helped foster that instead of working are to kick it into touch.

10.) 31 Oct 2018 20:11:39
He didn’t last long under Ged 😄

That was the end of his fun 👍.

11.) 31 Oct 2018 22:45:23
I suspect the wife has paid for one of these dinner night things with Ruddock for my birthday, as it’s on in a pub close by and falls on my birthday. Might be putting 2+2 and getting 5, but don’t think so.
Does anyone know any stories that I can bring up that might make him squirm a little?
I did used to like the bloke as a kid, but think he is a tit now.

12.) 01 Nov 2018 04:22:41
Fair, ed025, but doesn't cocaine stay in the system for up to two weeks or something like that?

{Ed001's Note - depends on the test used and the usage level. The body metabolises it in something like 4 hours, if I remember correctly, but a standard urine test (as tends to be used in football), will usually find traces for a minimum of 48 hours. The longer term user and heavier user will have traces in their system for longer though.}

13.) 01 Nov 2018 06:01:03
Ruddock was an awful player and epitomised theclub at the time, an ex player (maybe Mark Walters) came out recently and said it was a joke at the club around that time and no wonder we did terrible, players didn’t train properly and there was no discipline within the club. Roy Evans has to take a lot of the blame for that as apparently he didn’t have the capacity to bollock anyone and let it all go unpunished.
TSLF- you say Evans wasn’t backed but at the time Ruddock, Babb and Scales were big money signings, record signings for defenders if my memory is correct? So you can’t say Evans wasn’t backed and I’m sure he would have had input on choosing them.
As for drug testing I used to be in the military and had to do plenty of ‘random’ drug tests, plenty of my colleagues did coke but not many fell foul of tests, it’s normally out of your system in 24/ 48 hours and you can flush it out other ways. The tests normally got done on a Wednesday and I think the army did that in purpose as it meant Saturday night wouldn’t show up.

14.) 01 Nov 2018 07:53:44
Nothing about Ruddock surprises me. A thug and a bell end, whoever recruited him should be chastised too.

I saw him on "Can't Pay, We'll Take it Away" a while back, and he's still a bellend trying to get away with not paying his way, despite having the money. He was being chased by an owner of dog kennels that he used. He admitted at the end (after failing to pay again) that he will pay her eventually but wants to have a bit of fun along the way!

What an utter $**te!

15.) 01 Nov 2018 09:33:26
What a horrible human being he is mate
about babb and scales I rememeber at the time thinking why buy so many defenders lol
I really thought in Babb we had something special but hey ho it was not to be.

16.) 01 Nov 2018 12:33:06
Overall a tool but he did get that equalizer against the mancs in 1994. Was fearing the worst after 25 mins and 3-0 down at home!

17.) 01 Nov 2018 12:34:21
Hey Irish. imagine if he was on the table again, definitely not something you want you're kids looking up to!

18.) 01 Nov 2018 16:42:27
Remember fowler saying ruddock would cut up shoes and bully the youngsters. Not sure the exact details but was coming back from preseason or a final and he cut fowler shoes. Fowler then got ruddock back and when he woke razor was going mad. THink he hit Robbie on nose but Robbie never went down. And Robbie more or less said considering age and weight difference told you all you need to know about razor. Apparently Robbie wanted a go again after plane landed on runway. The punch razor through could have happened on run way also.

Long story short razor was a bully.

19.) 01 Nov 2018 16:43:48
That isn't what I was told about ferdinand, a lad I worked with was best mates with rooneys uncle and went on many a night out with the United team because Rooney is really close to his uncle, the short version of what I was told is, at every top club the players do nothing for themselves, people employed by the club sort out everything for them from dental appointments to car insurance and everything in between, they have to be lead by the hand for everything as the clubs just want them to concentrate on football, ferdinand after training was told he was in for a drug test which he was fine about, he was then left to arse about with the lads in the team and was going on about clothes shopping in the town centre and because he was left to his own devices and not lead by the hand by club officials, he just went shopping completely forgetting the drug test. I'm paraphrasing but that was the gist.

20.) 01 Nov 2018 16:44:39
I’m sure he’ll bring up the fact that he was the most expensive defender in the country when Liverpool bought him.

For this reason you can hardly hold it against the owners for not backing Roy Evans tho.

21.) 01 Nov 2018 23:17:45
Would you be able to do a legend profile on our old defender razor Ruddock? Great lad altogether. Rock at the back. Cheers mate.



14 Oct 2018 13:11:27
Van Dijk now has a minor injury and been sent back to Liverpool
good to see that our squad is more then capable of covering now with lovren back and if Salah does not make the next game the Shaqiri can jump in.
I do worry badly though if Robertson gets injured but hey ho let's hope he does not.

Another reason why I hate international friendlies but we'll be fine, I'm sure it's nothing too bad, well I hope so anyway.

I completely agree with you regarding Robbo, that'd be a worry.

2.) 14 Oct 2018 15:43:17
It’s another pretend injury like the one to salah to get them home from the friendly games. Like with hendo getting booked to be suspended for the Spain game. So we now have salah, hendo, Virgil rested for the Huddersfield game hopefully a fair few of the others will be rested in their second international game too.

There was no need to play VVD.

4.) 14 Oct 2018 17:33:41
It’s not a pretend injury and it’s not a new injury, it’s the same rib injury he had before. There was no reason why he shouldn’t have played against Germany, he’d had a weeks rest after the City game and he’ll now get a weeks rest before the Huddersfield game. You can’t wrap footballers in cotton wool, injures happen even in training.

5.) 14 Oct 2018 21:32:15
Salah's is the pretend one.

6.) 15 Oct 2018 19:35:38
Spot on, Kramer. VVD's injury is news to nobody if you are paying attention really. I don't believe Hendo got himself booked on purpose cos that's not who he is, IMO. As for Salah, he did tweak his groin late last season b4 the City game in the CL away tie so maybe that flared up again. As for injuries, the solution is simple. If you don't want to get injured in a game, training sessions, a kick-about with the lads then don't become a footballer. Problem solved.

Question for ED001
If you had the option of Gini or Aaron Ramsey which one would you rather have in the team
Guess I asking who do you think would best fit this current team
I am a big fan of Gini but something seems to be stopping him really showing his true potential in this team
I do feel Ramsey could come into this team if fully fit and really do well.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - Gini without question. Ramsey has gone backwards since he was at Cardiff as a youngster.}

1.) 30 Sep 2018 14:33:02
As always thank you for the reply mate
could Ramsey have gone backwards because of coaching or do you feel he he has peaked as a player?
Could Klopp improve him like Ox Robertson etc?

{Ed001's Note - lack of coaching was the issue with Arsenal and yes that will have affected his progress, but injuries and his own sulky attitude of the last couple of years are just as much of a problem. He would not even pass to Sanchez at one point. I mean literally would not pass to him.}

2.) 30 Sep 2018 14:44:33
Wasn't long ago he hit 20 goals for arsenal after Cardiff and his injury.

Think Wenger had a massive effect on him like Chamberlain.

Think there's a few out of contract I wouldn't mind klopp getting his hands on. Martial, rabiot and Ramsey for example.

3.) 30 Sep 2018 14:45:15
If that is true about that passing Ed001
then he can do one, can't be having that at Liverpool
Ed001 do you feel we need? will buy another midfielder?
I would be perfectly happy with this Squad till end of season unless something amazing becomes available in January.

{Ed001's Note - I think we are ok in midfield, we still have Fabinho to come in. I certainly would not want Ramsey, it is very true about Sanchez, they did not get on and Ramsey was extremely childish about it. Just what you don't want.}

4.) 30 Sep 2018 16:23:15
If we were going after another central midfielder I’d rather it were someone like Neves who is going to be absolutely top class, not some also ran like Ramsey.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely FMS, arsenal supporters cant wait to get rid of rambo..

5.) 30 Sep 2018 16:33:50
EDO25 don't take much notice of the Arsenal supporters mate, have a few friends who when they sold ox when laughing at us for buying him and they are now saying they would prefer to keep Xhaka and sell ramsey.
They ain't got a clue tbh.

{Ed025's Note - fair point that john, but i think ramsey is well over hyped mate..

6.) 30 Sep 2018 19:54:16
Ed001 We don't have any interest in Ramsey though mate do we? Hope not lol.

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of.}

7.) 30 Sep 2018 22:37:00
Ramsey is a product of stagnation that Ox was suffering from at Arsenal under Wenger. Ox was smart enough and jumped ship and came to us. Look at how long it took Ox to become the player he became in the Klopp system. Before his injury, Ramsey is not fit to carry Ox's training kit and yes, he has regressed and has a bad attitude (read somewhere that he called Koscielny a crap capt. ) to boot. Don't know where the Ramsey love-in is coming from BUT him being good for us, has no basis in reality. He is lazy, injury-prone, inconsistent (can't see it cos he plays at Arsenal) and won't start ahead of ANY of our mid's currently so NOPE, I'll pass.

Morning Ed001
Do you think in this current coaching line up their would be be a place for Roy Evans
Have always liked him as a coach and Manegr and just regret the persons who took advanthage of his good nature whilst manager
He was the first manager I ever remember playing 352 at liverpool but I could be very wrong there.
I am not saying we should hire him lol but in his pomp more to the point.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - Evans is one of the great coaches, at his peak there would always be a place for him.}

1.) 24 Sep 2018 12:50:22
I may be wrong but isn't he one of the club ambassadors?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate he is.}

2.) 24 Sep 2018 15:33:43
Who took advantage of his good nature?

{Ed001's Note - the club Moores and the players.}

3.) 24 Sep 2018 18:33:46
So basically everyone? What a shame. I feel bad because, as a kid of only 10 years old or so when he was manager I heard a lot of bad press about him being weak, lacking the steeliness, etc and I thought, in my naivety, that he was just a bad manager. I never realised until I was much, much older that he was actually excellent and one of the best attacking managers we'd had for a while. True be told I think he is probably too nice for modern football.

4.) 25 Sep 2018 09:15:52
It was horrible what happened appointing Houllier as joint manager. The club should not have done that and Houiller should not have taken part.

MK I would be so disappointed if he left as their is a really good intelligent footballer in there somewhere
I really believe he's does not realize how good he could be but I really hope he does not leave.

Resoecgt all opinion as always but the post from Red Kurd must be a wind up surely?
We are second and yet your still unhappy you do realise there is only one team above us right in the table
So if we can play this bad in your well informed opinion and still be seocnd then what happens when we start playing well?
Some people will always find the misery in happiness which is sad tbh.

I still can't believe some people fall for Walters post time and time again
It is a wind up guys so his posts get feedback and attention
nothing wrong with someone who spends all his time doing that on a fans forum is there?
I disagree with Walter and like always ask him to explain the raseoning behind thinking Klopp might get sack if he wins nothing this season.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed002's Note - His reasoning will be is that the owners are desperate to win the league and have resorted to trying to buy it. After years of failing to make that happen they will have to think long and hard whether Klipperty is the man for them or whether they should look to someone who might be able to do better. Regardless, I doubt they will sack him.}

Who has played worst this season Mane Firminho or Salah?
deffo not Mane imo
im not saying to drop any of them but to pick out Mane for me is wrong and unjustified.

So you ignore the previous 50 games and focus on the last two
supporters like yourself always make me smile
repsect your opinion but 100% disagree.
