Given the striker dilemma we are having currently. It seems Benteke is the likely choice who will be in red next season. Not my preferred choice but that's the similar debate going on here all the time. Either way, if he is red. Support him. But as abit of fun, who would your chosen striker be given you can have one, price tag irrelevant. Who would you choose. Likely names up there probably being:

Who you choose? My preference being lacazette. Obvious reasons. But I like the hunger he has and he can actually score from
Outside the box and has great accuracy. With our style and energy. I think he could pop in at least 15 in his first season. That is if we play the high tempo high press style. But with Rodgers. Who knows.

but no premier league experience!

2.) 08 Jul 2015 18:39:18
Lacazette too for me, although I would bring back God to help him acclimatise ;-)

3.) 08 Jul 2015 18:50:50
Lacazette is probably first choice just, but he's never played in PL so a worry he may not adapt.

For me Higuain due to him being the more experienced striker and played at a high level for longer than Lacazette. To be fair I'd take either one.

{Ed030's Note - I'd have Higuain, seen more of him than I have of Lacazatte and from what I have seen Higuain the better player, I'd also prefer Benzema over Lacazette. Both Higuain and Benzema would be a vast improvement on the current players while also not blocking the development of the youngsters. }

I guess I was going for lacazette due to the way I seen him play. I like how he has an aggro and good strength. Plus, I do think he has a hunger for goals. Being very direct and driving at the goal. Higiuan I think would be top quality too and could fit but for some reason I don't think he would work just as well as versa. I wouldn't say no. He is world class. But I guess my judgement of hearing rumours of him for 3 years and 6 transfer windows. Put me off him a little now. Benzema would be amazing. I think he is one of the best strikers. From what I've seen. That is what I think lacazette can become. Only for his age, makes me choose the other. In terms of no pl experience. I think all three are technically good enough to cope and push them all to be better. As it's a faster game.
But if your short of experience. Get emile back. If your looking for a real eye waterer. He's your man.

5.) 08 Jul 2015 21:43:22
How in the name of sweet jeasus could you have heskey's name in there. Are you on crack or something.

{Ed030's Note - I think his name was added for a joke. }

If price irrelevant Ronaldo f i r me

Hi eds, wanted this to be mainly for ed001 but it would also be great to see two replies to this from 001 and 002. My question simply is, what do you guys expect? And think is doable this window? and would successful? Or even who you wish to see at the club?

There's a lot of people on here linking us to whoever all the time just because their good on fifa means we have interest in them. It's getting annoying and ridiculous sometimes. Must be a pain in the ass for you guys all the time.

Honestly I just want to see what you guys think. I'm not mentioning any names here purely to be optimistic and not bias. You guys are the ones who basically know there stuff. So my trust is in you.


{Ed001's Note - I really don't expect a lot to happen, January is difficult at the best of times, but this year there is a World Cup coming up, most players with hopes of going will not want to move. It leaves you with an extremely limited pot of potential targets. There will be those with hopes of going but no hope of getting in their current team. Those who are not near a place in their national side. Finally, those whose country failed to get there.}

1.) Doesnt seem like we should do business unless we get a good one, i'd rather we postpone transfers in till the summer if that can mean we get quality. I believe we have enough tools to make it to top 4 providing players staying fit.

2.) Hmm fair enough then, it all makes sense about the World Cup, just a pity that it stops us from developing into a stronger team. With that said. The team is strong enough to continue winning, although a winger is a problem as it has been for a while. And we need Enrique back too(although I'm not his biggest fan) so it's the same positions were looking that were also struggling.

In which case then, we do wait til the summer and get top 4. This being the piroity. What would the targets be there and would you reckon they change from what they are now?

Salah, Bertrand, Montoya, rakitic, etc.


{Ed001's Note - I think we will end up missing out on Rakitic to be honest.}

3.) Agreed there. Probably will stay if they continue good form. Or move to psg. Becoming a great player.
Salah probably will wait til the summer.
Personally I would love Montoya. But I'm not keeping my hopes up for anything now. Simply so I don't disappoint myself. We all need faith in the team and BR. I just really wanted to know what you thought we would do or get. Or want.

As we get all the questions of this guy or that. And there always stupid possibilities for us at this current time.

I think they should employ the 343 and give that a try

Ward/ Karius

Matip/ Gomez/ Lovren (sadly because we have no one else but if I could, I think he needs away from the team after last performance, give him a reason to improve)

TAA/ hendo/ can/ coutinho

Ox/ bobby/ salah

Another possibility would be to try and take matip off too. He knows he is guaranteed starter right now, so isn’t playing as hard as he can. Because he knows he on the team sheet, so just isn’t trying that hard.
I would also chuck ox in to give him a run in a position he wants and try and build up his confidence within the team. Also to give him some gametime. The boy needs it and can atleast play the role abit better among this team. Have Coutinho higher up recently. He is getting confused since he is used to dropping deeper and playing more in the middle/ left and having him up top right now isn’t helping since he is getting used to the more central role. Which is really suiting him. This then allows ox and salah to play further up more and have a little more fluidity up top. And Coutinho actually can drop back when needed. Having the three at the back should help control the game. Allow can to drop more central which allows Lovren abit wider. TAA can cover back is well where hendo can drop deep and Gomez/ matip can cover the wide gaps of any open up.
With the pace we have up top, the team can play counter attack very nice and quick football while still have a defence of 5/ 6 players.

Personally this needs to be sorted with a decent keeper! Someone who will give authority at the back and command his box and people around him.
I also think it needs to change from zonal to man marking depending on the game, stop allowing player to run onto us and get them marked out of the game. I think that if this was put in place. I don't think matip and lovren would be as bad as they show. They can defend but the system they play has so much more risk. But having mig behind them really doesn't help. A DM would also help the team out no end. And stop the gaps opening up at the back for us. But I also think that Henderson needs to find a new gear and crack on further as he sometimes puts the CB's under pressure. The amount of times you see matip running further forward than him is not a great sign. Sometimes it is fine but it is too regular. He needs to develop his game faster and to be more direct for us. I honesty think that will help us move on. But then I think the team formation should change and that klopp should try 4231 hendo and can in the middle. Bang into there heads that when one goes the other sits, and let the front 4 roam freely to intertwine together. I reckon that would really help the team structure and also bring more solidarity.

In my opinion guys.

The whole PC situation has put a cloud over the club but no one can judge PC over his time at the club and determination, looking at it from a different point of view, in any role we do in work, if you are offered a better job with more pay and a higher rank. You take that from a financial point of view and to improve and better yourself. Apply that to this situation and it's very similar. I have always rated PC and he is quality but we can carry on fine without him. The thing I feel is that firmino has played out of position for a long time and really wants that no 10 role. With PC going, he can be dropped back there with mane and slash either side. We can then actually use a striker which we brought in or the supply we have. Then have a combo of hendo/ Gini/ Can sitting in the middle. Thing with firmino is that he runs so much that he will help track back and help out is well. Plus our issue has always been at the back so really I feel the whole VVD is planned to sort the defence and the NK was to help cover them while being a machine. Really though as a team. We need to focus on the defence and structure which is what I think the club is trying to do. If we can learn to fix this. At least if we learn to defend, we will do so much better. It's been said on here for so long but our defence needs the work. If this can get worked with the internal team and training. If we can't break teams down, atleast don't concede and we will go much further. Old saying, you win from the back. If you can't score. Make sure you don't concede.

Just my thoughts. But we will be alright without PC, the boy has been good for us and as a player to have the chance to play for the best team in the world. That won't atleast twitch his thoughts. So don't blame the boy at all. Plus from yday. We saw what mfs can do and will do for us this season

Keep the heads up!

Fantastic read that MK. I don’t comment much mainly as I prefer to read through but I am definitely in the fan base to support hendo. I have to defend him enough in work to explain this but you are spot on in the sense of playing the carrick role. Utd with him were like lions. Without they were kittens and they still miss him now. I am all for hendo and really hope with keita coming in. He is intelligent and hopefully he will match hendo on the field to become another engine in the works.

Keep it up and look forward to the next one. Can I pop in a request and you do one for firmino, magic feet.

Following bingo's comment. We all know what mourinho is like. I also see him settings the team up to sit deep and take our pressure in the early stages and maybe get a break for lukaku to jump on. I just hope our boys can handle him and with the way he is in form right now. What I think we need to do, is try to play freely but open the play and wait patiently for a gap, not go too early. But hopefully klopp will have a plan.

Following on this ed01, I understand we all want to change the defence. Moreno trains hard and well but struggles on performance, TAA is still young so we can't judge him too soon, similar to Gomez for now. But with lovren and klavan, we all agree they are not good enough, just lose there head and panick. But would you say the same about Matip? Do you rate him and think he is a good defender? Also with the VVD saga. He will be an improvement but was the intention of bringing him in and slowly moving Gomez into the centre. Pushing matip out or just general squad completition?


{Ed001's Note - Matip is a real weak link for me, defensively. Good on the ball but he is so poor at defending. The worst is that he gets caught out a lot but strolls back into position, even when he is just a couple of yards away. A sprint would get him involved again and close the gaps.

Gomez is seen as a future centre back, Matip was only a stop gap signing to give the club time to scout long term centre halves.}

Ahh yes Torres, who still remembers the elbow Agger gave him smack on the nose that game as a reminder to bad the decision he made. Haha I remember that hit so clearly. I think the ref saw it too and just let it be as he knew Torres pulled one over Liverpool.

I swore we went on to win that one too?

Ha don't worry about it too much Ben. We all know it can be difficult for you guys to get round to doing them naturally. Ed with your throat like that. It could potentially happen again at anytime now so best be prepared. But answering your question. I reckon a general discussion on your thoughts of the whole change. Klopp and his staff. The use of the team and rotation. The impact he has made and how he has managed to wrap the media around his finger along with many fans too. But growing on that, talk about individual players and how you see they will progress under klopp. Ibe, Can spring to mind and how they are developing. Do you see that continuing through the whole team and where could these players go on to become? Could be a few players, their just a few atm. Also talk the reverse. How Milner is proving a failure almost. Is skrtel still poor or is he turning it round. Mingolet? Just a general consensus really.

Sorry if that confusing. But hopefully could be a really interesting and full podcast.
