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.



18 Aug 2015 12:45:29
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.}

Quick question for Ed001,

What's your thoughts on Coutinho getting a Champions league medal? Lots of people seem to disagree with it, Thommo included saying "I'd like to think if we do go on to win it that he says no I don't deserve it, I don't care its wrong. "

I can see what they are saying as he only played 5 games for us in the group stages and got 5 goals and 2 assists of which 4 of those goals and both assists came in the 2 games that were 7-0 Demolitions of Spartak and Maribor. So he didn't really make a difference in the long run.

But he did play for us and as a result wasn't allowed to play for Barcelona so I think its only fair that he gets a medal for his (albeit) small service to our champions league run.

{Ed001's Note - if we win it, I really don't see the problem with him getting one. Every player who played for us in the competition should get a medal, no matter how small a part. Plus it is a bit Bullseye-like to show him what he could have won!}

1.) 11 Apr 2018 14:18:03
He should get one as he contributed, if Salah only played 5 games in the group stages and then got injured all season but we still won nobody would be questioning if he should get a medal or not.
Coutinho left to win medals so I think it’s quite fitting that him leaving actually made our team better and enabled him to “win” a medal that he left for. Lol.

2.) 11 Apr 2018 14:49:10
He can have a medal but we won't be getting picked to play in the final 😂.

3.) 11 Apr 2018 15:03:35
I don't think he should to be honest.
He tried to derail our season before it began and then nearly did derail it when he got his move.
I loved him when he was here and wish him well on his new club but him leaving mid season knowing he'd be cup tied for the Champions League shows how little faith he had in our team to progress.
If he didn't think we could win it then why should he benefit if we do?

4.) 11 Apr 2018 15:15:49
Of course he should get it, the tradition is that if he played a part he gets it.

As he chose to jump ship rather than fight out the difficult part, he can be an adult about it and choose to donate it to someone who didn't get one - a coach or someone from the medical team perhaps. It's what I would do certainly considering the limited number issued. But that's his choice and it's up to him how he sees his career and contributions.

5.) 11 Apr 2018 15:19:49
Not only that but he was instrumental in us even qualifying.

6.) 11 Apr 2018 15:22:59
Yes that's true Ron. I hadn't considered that.

7.) 11 Apr 2018 15:44:50
I think we should conventrate on winning it first before we start dishing out the medals.

8.) 11 Apr 2018 15:45:43
I believe that once a player hands in a transfer request, and then leaves his club, then all ties are cut,
he is then an ex player,
so no,
he left us, he should not be entitled to any medal,
so, in the event of us winning another Champions League Final, only players and staff should receive a medal .

9.) 11 Apr 2018 15:48:49
I like to think we’ll win it and dominate Europe for the next decade or so and in that period, Barcelona will come short frequently and at the end of his disappointing what could have been career- he’ll look at that solitary mocking European medal he had barely a hand in winning and it will just eat away at him and many years from now, lying on his death bed with that medal fixed tightly in his withered hands he’ll. okay sorry. That was a little dark.

10.) 11 Apr 2018 16:51:35
Quite a few sounding bitter above, beginning to resemble the neighbours fellas.

11.) 11 Apr 2018 16:58:36
I think it’s more the raw hurt still caused by Coutinhos behavior while pushing for the move. In truth I doubt any fan would actually have any issue at all with the lad getting a medal. We’d all be too deliriously happy with the trophy.

12.) 11 Apr 2018 19:14:43
I would invite him onto the open top bus parade and lend him a kit as well as give him a medal, why not? Hahaha.

13.) 12 Apr 2018 14:14:19
aoe - a bit dark? What counts as very dark to you?!



04 Apr 2018 22:36:59
Couldn't be happier with that result tonight.

The fact we conceded no goals was more important than the 3 we did score in my opinion.

If we score 1 goal which we are more than capable of then they have to score 5 to win.

2 downsides of tonight is that salah was injured and regardless of whether it was precautionary or not, we have a weekend derby and then the second leg this week. Even if his injury only keeps him out for a week, we need this player at his best to help with these games.

The second downside is Henderson being banned for the return leg at the Etihad, we need a modicum of control in the next game and he is the only player capable of doing so in the midfield. He will be sorely missed in my opinion.

Great result but there is still a lot of.

1.) 04 Apr 2018 23:13:16
Spot on, Nosh. Either for Salah, I was not expecting him to play in the derby anyway so no harm done there for me BUT the hope is that he can start in the second leg. Hendo is a big miss for sure and also, the hope is Can is fit which is touch and go. But before that, let's just enjoy the victory tonight as the game was breathe-taking.

{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.



29 Jan 2018 16:20:17
{Ed's Note - Noshbag has posted a new article entitled, Liverpool Senior Squad Regulars - A Statistical Analysis: Part 1: Goalkeepers and Defenders

1.) 29 Jan 2018 17:07:51
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

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.

I would definitely go see that MK, 2 of the greatest for sure.

As for Sturridge, unfortunately for the lad I think his career is being forced and I don't ever see him getting back to full fitness. On his day he WAS one of the best strikers and as you say could put 25 away a season but even if he was fully fit, I think those days are gone.

Flops: I've gone for top 6 teams as its fairer to judge players who are playing badly around better team mates.

Zappacosta, Luiz, Lindelof, Monreal
Sissoko, Bakayoko, Xhaka
Lamella, Lacazette, Sanchez.

De Gea
Valencia, Otamendi, Azpilicueta, Alonso
De Bruyne, Erikson, D. Silva
Salah, Kane, Sane

De Gea is an easy choice, he has been the best goalkeeper for a few years now.

Otamendi has fallen off lately but has definitely been the most consistent along with Azpilicueta.

Valencia has done a lot for Utd, more than walker has for City in my opinion but its close.

Alonso has been brilliant for most of this season, Robertson is close but he spent the beggining of the season benched by Moreno.

De Bruyne is easily the best midfielder this year, followed by Erikson and D. Silva. I don't think Kante has had the same effect as he did last year.

Sane has been the best left winger by a long way.

You can't take away from Kane that he is the best striker in the league, i think if Aguero could have stayed fit then it may be different but he hasn't so Kane pips it for me purely because of the goals (-1 that belonged to Erikson ofc) .

Salah is the pick of the lot, PL POTY for sure and in contention for the Ballon D'or too at this rate. If he manages to continue his form into the Semi's and Final of the Champions league helping us to lift the cup then i think it would say a lot about the bias towards spanish players if he didn't win it.

This is well within our reach, Roma are clearly no pushovers but they are definitely the underdogs of the competition.

Take them to Anfield, scare the pants off them and let's try to kill this tie in the first leg.

CMON REDS! Only 3 more games to go for the unthinkable!
