Not a bad game but not particularly good either.

Coutinho and Sturridge were pretty quiet today.

Sakho, moreno and lucas all did a good job defensively.

Ings is starting to look like a shrewd bit of business, if he can provide even 10 goals this season it's worth it.

Mignolet was superb, did all he could to keep us in it.

Can and milner had shockers again today. Twice in a row we have conceded from pretty much the exact same defensive error.

Clyne looks very scared to lose possession which removes all attacking threat from him. He has the potential to be just as good at getting forward as moreno but needs to take on his man rather than turning and passing backwards all the time.

Skyrtel will give away a penalty sooner or later. He gets away with murder in the box.

Surely Rogers must be hanging by a thread after all the hype around his position.

I would drop milner for henderson when back. He is too hit or miss, runs flat out for 90 mins but doesn't do much with it. Henderson is far less wasteful and has everything milner brings to the team.

Alot of work for the new manager coming in if that ever does happen.

Hey Eds. Is there anything new with Verrati of PSG? Do we hold any interest that you know of?

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest from Liverpool.}


 

 

07 Jul 2014 15:02:19
Heard that Bologne are interested in Borini now that Sunderland seem to have backed off.

Is this rubbish?
Not from twitter btw heh.


1.) 07 Jul 2014 16:41:41
If Sunderland cannot afford him, I don't see how Bologna can.

{Ed008's Note - Bologna have just been relegated to Serie B have huge financial problems I very much doubt they could afford Borini let alone see him joining the club.


 

 

04 Feb 2014 16:43:34
Papers saying we will go back in for Kono and maybe scramble for Toni Kroos in the summer. Would be brilliant additions to the squad but I doubt anyone is expecting Kroos.

Cant see our budget covering both of them.


1.) Surely some of the money we get from Suarez will go to transfers, as well as the TV rights deal and potential CL money if we did manage to make it.


2.) I'd love Firmino. Can't see us meeting Kroos' wage demands either.


3.) 05 Feb 2014 01:09:17
Absolutely zero chance of Kroos unless we win the league! He will have a number of CL clubs queuing up for his services.


 

 

31 Jan 2014 13:32:03
Sly aports just said some of the complecations of the kono deal are "unbelievable". Do you know anything about this eds?

{Ed001's Note - it is a number of things, add ons, signing fees, pay offs, palm greasing etc.}


1.) Ssn have also just said that we are in talks right now with the player and his agent father over a 5 and a half year deal so does that mean that stuff like pay offs and agent fees are now complete and it's just about the contract now

{Ed001's Note - seems to be all done, yes.}


2.) 31 Jan 2014 13:55:42
Think they are repeating the phrase 'unbelievable' from a tweet this morning by Kono's agent, James Tippett @JamTipp78.


3.) Thanks a lot I don't no how or where you get your little snipets or info from wish I was in the no like you eds but hey we still get info great job guys and here's hoping for a successful end to the window also if we do infact sign him will he be eligible to play west brom

{Ed001's Note - years of getting to know the right people mate. Ed002's contacts are way better than mine, worldwide. It is just a case of talking to people really. Also, they have to trust that you won't reveal things they don't want known, which can be frustrating as sometimes we know things we can't reveal.}


4.) Lucky people your not lfc or ex lfc players are you lol

{Ed001's Note - no, I wish.}

{Eds Note: If you didn't read it, Noshbag wrote an excellent article - LFC Senior Squad Regulars - A Statistical Analysis: Part 1: Goalkeepers and Defenders


1.) 30 Jan 2018 11:45:58
Nice article that thanks. Agree with most of it although generous with your C for Moreno. Highlights how mediocre our back 5 are. Just think what we could achieve with a solid defence and no.1.


2.) 30 Jan 2018 12:12:22
I really enjoyed it. As you'd expect with such a long post, their are a few parts i disagreed on. However it was brilliantly articulated and kept me fully engaged throughout.

I look forward to the next instalments, Noshbag.


3.) 30 Jan 2018 12:57:00
Really good post and looking forward to the next installment, although something that interests me is the 'errors leading to goals' category. How is that defined? Because I can think of dozen's of times opposition has scored because Mings made a basic error with a fairly loose definition like inexplicably going to ground, or forgoing an easy clearance with his boot to try and catch it etc. But then if there is a might tighter definition like dropping the ball in front of a striker, I'm surprised he's had 6. Can anyone clarify what this figure actually refers to?


4.) 30 Jan 2018 14:50:02
Noshbag that is a very informative read. I agree with every grade. last year Moreno would be an E but he deserves his C he has been better than most this year.

De Gea stats are incredible.


5.) 01 Feb 2018 14:37:46
Thank you guys, I'm hoping the next instalment will take less than 2 months but there is only so much I can do whilst sat at my desk trying to make it look like I'm actually working!

To answer your post hjickle, I believe they are considered "severe" errors rather than "soft" errors. Those particular figures came directly from the premier league website.

I would have thought if they were including "soft" errors as well then Lovren would have hit the 10 - 20 mark and I dread to think of what mignolets would be. I'm not 100% sure on this though sorry.

{Ed's Note - Noshbag has posted a new article entitled, Liverpool Senior Squad Regulars - A Statistical Analysis: Part 1: Goalkeepers and Defenders

Very interesting read that, nice one noshbag.


2.) 29 Jan 2018 17:31:53
Nice one noshbag I don't normally look at stats etc coz I is to thick to understand them.
I think you spelt it out very well and I think you done a really good job. Keep up the good work. Thank you.


 

 

16 Jan 2018 12:28:58
Hi Ed's

I've been writing up an article over the past 2 months or so and I would like to share it with everyone if that is ok?
2 questions, how would I go about posting this and Is there a limit on the size as unfinished it currently stands at over 2000 words.

Thank you.

{Ed033's Note - Hi, you can send it in using the liverpool rumours posting form or the contact form and it can become an article on our Football Articles site.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 13:23:26
Many thanks, I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of the week.

{Ed033's Note - ok thanks


 

 

28 Oct 2017 15:45:03
Why would you let Salah who shoots straight down he middle with 90% of his shots over nil bet who has missed 1 penalty in several years? Ludicrous.


1.) 28 Oct 2017 15:50:12
Never looked like scoring that penalty.


2.) 28 Oct 2017 15:51:37
Another gem of a decision from Klopp.


3.) 28 Oct 2017 15:51:51
was about to post the same thing, why is Salah on penalties when Milner is on the pitch. Klopp talked about how Salah took a penalty for egypt in the 94th minute. WHO CARES about that here? weird desicion. Bad penalty but he shouldn't be on them in the first place. Klopp is very unlucky atm, even a decision like that backfires.


4.) 28 Oct 2017 15:51:54
We really are poor at the moment. Why exactly when milner is on the pitch. We go backwards, sideways and repeat. Hendo is so awful.


5.) 28 Oct 2017 15:53:12
and 90% of his shots are down the middle is a complete joke btw! Arguably our best player so far this season, not the first or last penalty we'll ever miss.


6.) 28 Oct 2017 16:02:40
Imo Id sell sturridge, hendo, klavan, Moreno, lovren, can and milner. None of em good enough to play in a team that supposedly has their sights set on a top four finish or (jokingly) winning it. Proper peed off watching this.


7.) 28 Oct 2017 16:08:31
Thank the lord!


8.) 28 Oct 2017 16:23:28
He's in klopps fantasy football team (and mine) hence the pen decision ;) but who do we have who starts every game who you could rely on to score one? Either way we're winning, looked far better with an actual striker with firmino too not happy as others weren't with the mignolet and lovren decisions as I think it shows playing poor doesn't mean you'll be dropped but hey ho we are winning for now.


9.) 28 Oct 2017 16:53:53
Yeah ridiculous decision to let your top goal scorer and best player take a penalty.

{Ed002's Note - It is with Milner on the field.}


10.) 28 Oct 2017 16:54:19
lol, milner definitely should have taken that pen, klopp doesn't make it easy for himself does he.


11.) 28 Oct 2017 17:09:03
Didn’t Milner miss his last penalty for Liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}


12.) 28 Oct 2017 17:26:23
I have to say I thought he would miss. Salah gets goals because of his pace and movement not because of his finishing quality. Miner should have taken it but miner ain't always going to be on the pitch so someone else needs to step up. We are Liverpool and every player on the pitch should be able to tuck penalties away.


13.) 28 Oct 2017 17:29:09
And can I just say how dissapointing it is to see people still slating klopp and hendo and Co after a three nil win. Get a life. Sort your priorities out.

Ed01 loved your article on the old Hungarian player. Liked the story about the crossbar game. I'd never heard of him I'm ashamed to admit.

{Ed001's Note - wow, you had never heard of Puskas? I am shocked. If you speak to most Glaswegians of a certain age, they will talk him up for hours. Those who were at Hampden Park for the European Cup final when he scored 4 will not shut up about it! That was about all I knew about him when I started the article admittedly, but still he is one of those names that is normally heard of, like Lev Yashin etc.}


14.) 28 Oct 2017 17:59:53
I know I feel very ignorant. His name kinda rang a bell but I couldn't point him out of a photo. Sounds like some player though! Cor.

{Ed001's Note - your parents or grandparents would probably know him because of the games against England. It was massive at the time England losing to Hungary at Wembley.}


15.) 28 Oct 2017 19:02:02
Yeah wasn't it Hungary that beat England when we set up 2 2 6 or something like that. We were well beaten and it started the whole 433 442 thing? In this country anyway? I could be well wrong. I'm not great on football history.

Who is the next legend to feature bud?

{Ed001's Note - something like that yes. England were using the WM formation (whatever that is) and Hungary used a new one, though it varies on what it is called depending on who you read or speak to.

Next legend is Pele, thought I had best do him next. Also finally started researching the Champ Man legends as well, starting with the biggest Champ Man legend of all - Cherno Samba - for a new series of articles.}


16.) 28 Oct 2017 19:47:32
Hi Ed01, sorry to be a pain but can i add three more (yes three . sorry) to your player profile list pretty please. Zico, Lothar Matthaus and Di Stefano who many say is the greatest player of all time, thanks mate.

{Ed001's Note - don't worry you weren't a pain, always glad for suggestions, though those 3 are already on the list.}


17.) 28 Oct 2017 20:45:26
Kennedy Bakircioglü would beg to differ.

{Ed001's Note - how so?}


18.) 28 Oct 2017 21:57:20
Awesome article eds, tears were close to welling at RM s profiteering from one of there all time greats, maybe the players are right to screw every last penny they can get out of clubs today.

{Ed001's Note - Real Madrid are well known for doing things like that, which is why I dislike them. They are not a community club.}


19.) 29 Oct 2017 01:49:23
Been saying to my missus for ages that she can only have a cat if we call him Ferenc. She doesn’t get it 🙄.

{Ed001's Note - you know he was a massive animal lover? As a kid he caused a few problems at home after a mouse he found on the street and adopted secretly escaped.....}


20.) 29 Oct 2017 01:46:52
Ed001,

I presume you’ve seen (if not remembered) the footage from the 1970 World Cup?

Wasn’t it David Coleman who did the commentary?
Every time he said “Pele” he said it with such excitement, it still gives me goosebumps when I hear it.

I still think his astonishing dummy against Uruguay was, IMO, the greatest piece of individual skill ever! It just showed how far ahead he was compared to other players, to be able to see, read and flawlessly execute, the GK was totally mystified as to what happened!

If only he’d scored!

El Rey Pele!

{Ed001's Note - watching a programme about them as a very small child was when I fell in love with football, rather than just being a Liverpool fan. They were amazing to watch. No one has ever replicated the quality of their attacking play since.}


21.) 29 Oct 2017 10:58:21
Can I add Sylvestre Stallone to the list. That penalty save against the Germans, last kick of the game wow.


 

 

20 Oct 2017 14:44:48
In the wake of last weeks Premier League game I have been arguing with my friend all week about why "UTD are so great" and "Liverpool are so bad" etc.

What is the funniest banter people have had with UTD fans/ supporters.

Ill start it off with this one:
2001 after Liverpool won the Uefa Cup, League Cup and Community Shield:

"That doesn't count as a treble”

2017 after UTD won the Uefa Cup, League Cup and Community Shield:

"Jose has won the treble in his first season"


1.) 20 Oct 2017 15:14:26
My Utd mate was adamant man u's late winner agaimst Munich was better than Istanbul. His argument was that it was dramatic. Don't worry I can assure you we aren't friends anymore.


2.) 20 Oct 2017 15:23:58
We won the FA Cup in 2001 as well.


3.) 20 Oct 2017 16:38:38
One of my Man United supporting friends has just recently been sacked for his first mistake! He was so good at his job as well and saved countless lives. All those years at medical school wasted because he slept with one of his patients in a moment of unbridled passionate madness. It is just so unfair how your life can fall apart so quickly. I hope everyone here will spare a thought for him.

He was the best vet in the country.


4.) 20 Oct 2017 17:05:08
Haha nice one mk.


5.) 20 Oct 2017 17:38:21
i actually enjoy the banter with my utd friend, he was against Mou's appointment and already predicted himself he wouldn't watch away games against big clubs, cause they wouldn't be playing football at all.


6.) 20 Oct 2017 22:07:06
My mate reckons pallister was better than Hanson! Nutcase.

Not football related but a mate of mine who supports utd once said to me "if I could play guitar I'd play it better than you"


7.) 20 Oct 2017 23:12:32
My mate claims the class of 92 was the best in PL era. Without being bitchy I agreed!


8.) 21 Oct 2017 07:40:11
Liverpool win the league cup (and nothing else that season)
UTD fan: “the league cup doesn’t count, Liverpool didn’t win anything this season.
Fast forward to united winning nothing but the league cup and Liverpool winning nothing:
Me: “we both won nothing this season then. ”
Him: “no, we won the league cup”
Me: *rolls eyes*.


9.) 21 Oct 2017 08:28:55
Love it MK.


10.) 21 Oct 2017 08:30:48
Most United fans think sky invented football in 92 and nothing happened before that.

{Ed025's Note - it did though gmil, the romans invaded britain, the wheel was invented...and liverpool were a good team...dont you just love ancient history..


11.) 21 Oct 2017 11:04:45
Yeah ed 25 your right in history it does say we were a good if not great team thing I'm struggling to find out is anything to do with Everton lol. It appears they've always been crap.

{Ed025's Note - that is so unfair p1, its only been the last 30 years or so..

Thank you for the update Macca, I'm sure everyone would agree your insight is extremely appreciated by everyone on here.
Could I be cheeky and just ask what position this player plays in?

Even if this were true, all bids should be rejected. We are not a feeder club for Real and Barca. We don't need money in the bank but we do need good players.

I'm sure Southampton are saying the same thing about us but the difference is that over the last 20 or so years we have been title contenders bar 4 or 5 bad seasons. We should be aiming to be as powerful as Real Madrid or Barcelona like we once were, not settling for mediocrity by selling every decent player we have, even if it is for grossly over inflated bags of cash.

@ Whz

Ok fair enough, Dudek and Arbeloa are hardly big losses but you have mentioned every other player on that list.

Sterling was definitely a big loss, he was replaced by Ibe who didn't quite cut it and the club suffered on the wings because of it. It is only now with the addition of Mane and Salah that we have decent wide options and we are doing much better.

Coutinho is a player we did not want to lose. Firmino is a player we cannot afford to lose. Keep this one happy at all costs I say.

Just to name a few.

Cristiano Ronaldo - Utd to Madrid
Gareth Bale - Spurs to Madrid
Luka Modric - Spurs to Madrid
Van Persie - Arsenal to Utd
Di Maria - Utd to PSG
Cesc Fabregas - Arsenal to Barca
David Beckham - Utd to Madrid
Nicholas Anelka - Arsenal to Madrid
Thierry Henry - Arsenal to Barca
Alex Song - Arsenal to Barca
Arjen Robben - Chelsea - Madrid
Eidur Gudjohnsen - Chelsea to Barca
Van Nistelrooy - Utd to Real

But Liverpool's list is significantly bigger.

Coutinho - Liverpool to Barca
McManaman - Liverpool to Madrid
Dudek - Liverpool to Madrid
Alonso - Liverpool to Madrid
Arbeloa - Liverpool to Madrid
Macherano - Liverpool to Barca
Suarez - Liverpool to Barca
Owen - Liverpool to Madrid
Sterling - Liverpool to City
Torres - Liverpool to Chelsea.

Great Article MK, a find myself constantly defending Henderson's contribution to the team.

He really is "the engine that could" as you put it. To come back time and time again from injuries like that and slot into the team like he never left. He epitomises the term "True professional" for me.

If any of you get time, take a look at his highlight reel on youtube, I don't say this to try and sway peoples opinions on him but just as point that he has one of the best goal reels I have seen from a player.

I think Lallana and Woodburn in the creative CAM role would do the job if given the chance. Either that or drop Firmino into the CF role and play Ings or Solanke as a ST. With Henderson and Keita as the holding midfielders.

Sure it would be nice to add Kroos or somebody like that but I would take every penny we have available for next season and get a goalkeeper and another CB.

Moreno, Lovren, Matip, Mignolet, and Clyne are dragging the quality of the defence down and although some of them show flashes of competence now and then, none of them are consistent enough to challenge at the top.

The same could be said for Wijnaldum and Milner, then there is Can, Sturridge, markovic, Grujic, Origi, Flanagan, and Ward who all seem to be waiting for their chance to leave the club whilst collecting a wage every week.

@Lastsanemanalive

Definitely world class players as it stands, surely the term "world class" means something along the lines of "Up there with the best players in the world" or "Would get into any team".

Can you honestly tell me that none of the elite teams would want those 3 players? Ill give you PSG as they have Mbappe, Neymar and Cavani and maybe Real with Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale but those 3 won't be at the top much longer. Salah Mane and Firmino are 25,25 and 26 respectively.
