Quite obvious our midfield is good but not creative enough we can run and pass sideways all day but we need someone who can pick a pass. klopp is very reliant on the old crop, I want to see fabihno and Keita in that midfield. really hope they can adapt. I am surprised they haven't as they have quality . Would be nice too have Shaq in the team in front of 2 midfielders as he is our most creative spark.

1.) 20 Oct 2018 21:11:10
Shaqiri to fill the Coutinho hole all day. He’s looking like more and note of a bargain every time he plays.

2.) 20 Oct 2018 21:48:56
He is needed for that bit of magic give him protection with 2 midfielders behind and let him pick passes make runs, the usual front 3 could benefit from his vision and craft, I also think Keita should b given a go there too run at people an bring others into play would b good for his confidence too free the shackles an have licence too attack , shame we never got fekir obviously.

3.) 21 Oct 2018 13:07:50
Maybe against the smaller more stubborn teams we need to play shaqiri in stead of third misfielder.

We will click, there were moments in the past 2 and a half season with klopp where we would not click as an attacking team and lost or drew games. I think we were 9th after that second int break last season.

This season the defense is supporting when we aren't scoring 3-4 goals. The goals will come im not worried.



17 Jun 2018 15:44:40
Eds I definitely think we need different options up front, maybe a target man for certain games, is the young lad taiwo awonyi anywhere near up to it as this year he has progressed more with the club he on loan at, from what I can see he looks tall strong quick an potentially a nuisance, what's your opinion on him.

{Ed002's Note - Awoniyi will go on loan again - getting a Work Permit has proven not possible. I suspect the club will look to Anderlecht as the preferred option but other sides such as Brugge and Standard Liege might be interested in a loan.}

1.) 17 Jun 2018 16:25:59
That does make sense Ed. He did quite well in Belgium, would playing for a more higher profile team help get a permit Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Potentially, but one I suspect will be a struggle to keep in the longer term. He will go on the pre-season tour of the United States and then on loan.}

2.) 17 Jun 2018 16:35:20
Ed2 are the work permit committee pissed off with us? The only reason I ask is because of how we got Grujic his by lying and I can only imagine we aren't in their good books because of that?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool abused the system so they were certainly at the time. The whole Grujic situation has been a terrible mess but it will soon be over.}

3.) 17 Jun 2018 17:17:35
How in demand is ..............

{Ed002's Note - This is the page - we are not going to answer questions about random players.}

4.) 17 Jun 2018 17:22:42
Interesting Ed2, thank you!

5.) 17 Jun 2018 17:41:56
Cheers Ed.

6.) 17 Jun 2018 18:10:11
Why can’t Solanke be the target man?

7.) 17 Jun 2018 18:26:49
He is better behind a striker apparently slightly deeper that's where he plays for England youth teams.

8.) 17 Jun 2018 19:44:49
Ed002, will it be even more difficult after Brexit?

{Ed002's Note - Not for people like Awoniyi.}

9.) 17 Jun 2018 21:09:46
Sure, but I’m mean will the permit panel be a bit overwhelmed when the EU players have to apply?

I see taiwo awoniyi scored again tonight we have some interesting options for the future going to b hard too get them all in the squad but a lovely headache, rhion brewster, bobby Duncan, Paul glatzel, Harry Wilson, awoniyi, Camacho, I wonder how many of these players will seize there opportunity in the future, I like the look of awoniyi big strong good with his head, fast, could b a great option of the bench .

1.) 17 Feb 2019 22:03:28
I think Awoniyi should look elsewhere to further his blossoming career cos I just don't see him in our future plans.

2.) 17 Feb 2019 22:19:39
Not many mate, wasnt too long ago we was waiting on stewart, ibe, rossiter, sinclair etc. Imo Wilson looks the most likely as he's proved it at a mans level. Time will tell.

3.) 17 Feb 2019 22:27:18
Even harder to get Taiwo a work permit 😄.



09 Feb 2019 22:20:16
I like that midfield today potential first choice combination , fabihno has too Be one of first names on team sheet it's criminal if he isn't, amazing player a defensive midfielder who loves a pass we are blessed!

1.) 09 Feb 2019 23:08:14
I think Keita playing with gini and Fabinho is allowed more freedom as those two could capably play cm together without a third. The extra man just helps pressing and the build up play. A little more of that tenacious side that he had at rbl was shown today too which is good as he has appeared lightweight so far.

2.) 09 Feb 2019 23:38:44
Looked from match of the day that Firmino played up top and Salah on right. I know they interchange but imo Klopp should start them in these positions for rest of season if possible.

3.) 09 Feb 2019 23:50:29
Again the un sung hero is Wijnaldum. He’s often played deep and been brilliant for us. But today he demonstrated what an attacking threat he can also be.

4.) 10 Feb 2019 00:14:45
If we see the player at rb Leipzig naby will take us onto a different level, rite now we only seeing 2nd gear if he can get into 4th or 5th we in for such a treat .

{Ed0333's Note - I reckon he was in 3rd gear at least today hailstones no?

5.) 10 Feb 2019 00:45:01
I’ve got a theory here. After running out of steam last season, is Klopp holding back our normal front 3 (Bobby through the middle, Salah and mane on either side) for the run in?

Make the rest think we have reverted to a 4-2-3-1 and then bring back last years line up?

You thought we were gone? Well we’re not!

Hello! 😀👋.

6.) 10 Feb 2019 01:32:25
Is an unsung hero who gets man of the match still an unsung hero?

7.) 10 Feb 2019 01:35:11
just watched his old videos, he gets man handled a lot with his style of play. He's used to heavy contact just not the level of the premier league. He should adapt physically eventually. He probably feels like his power has been nerfed and he can't do what he used to do. So in a way we kind of do only have half the player keita used to be until he gets stronger. Lucas leiva was very similar, he adapted physically and then he finally started doing things right.

8.) 10 Feb 2019 01:57:52
I heard his transmission fluid is too cold. He can't shift into 3rd gear until it warms up.

9.) 10 Feb 2019 02:02:02
I really liked the midfield today and reckon it’s perhaps the beginning of a changing of the guard. The three worked together well and with Fabinho’s defensive cover and ability to dictate from deep, Gini’s close control and Keita’s Ball carrying skills, they complemented each other really well.

Also really enjoyed seeing Firmino back upfront. Horses for courses, but Salah got so much more time on the ball out on the right and looked just as dangerous.

Can’t wait for Gomez to be back and Trent to be fully fit and our top back 4 to be fit and firing, then think we will be very difficult to beat into the closing matches.

Great win boys, fantastic to see a game where we won comfortably and could have scored another 3 or 4 easily.

10.) 10 Feb 2019 03:17:17
Agree with you ED I thought Keita played very well today and was involved a lot both offensively and defensively. Hopefully he continues this upward trajectory of improvement, the lad clearly has ability.

11.) 10 Feb 2019 03:29:40
I hear he has a 7 speed gearbox so plenty more to come?

12.) 10 Feb 2019 16:15:04
Smeg i should have elaborated more. What i meant was Wijnaldum has been the unsung hero of the past. Many fans were clambering for the return of Hendo to the midfield to sort us out and he hardly got a mention.

13.) 10 Feb 2019 08:55:10
Hahaha love some of the gearbox responses, soz ed yes he definitely was in 3rd today, if we get him consistently into 4 and 5 are insurance premiums are going through the roof!

{Ed0333's Note - if he’s in 4th or 5th gear for the rest of the season mate that’s the title wrapped up.



25 Jan 2019 20:30:47
I know it's not going to happen as we know klopp doesn't like too upset the apple cart with signing players in January, but we could really do with someone who can play right back an possibly centre back and I ain't talking about fabihno either or Milner, I know it's hard too see happening especially this late in window but it could prove vital .

1.) 25 Jan 2019 21:04:54
We missed the opportunity to bring in Benjamin Pavard. I believe he's signed for Bayern Munich for €35m. He would not of onky given cover to both positions. He would have also given both Trent and Joe a run for there money in the starting 11. He played for France at Right Back and Centre Back for Stuttgart. Both of which at a very high and commanding level.

2.) 25 Jan 2019 21:34:40
Yes that would of been a perfect signing for us.

3.) 26 Jan 2019 08:38:18
I trust Klopp's judgement completely. We are where we are as a football team because of Klopp and his ability to shape a team, not despite it.
When people say "we should have signed, we missed the opportunity" they're overlooking the fact that Klopp has tremendous faith in his players and his track record suggests he knows a bit more about players than us mere mortals.

4.) 26 Jan 2019 09:01:10
Klopp is no fool. If he thought we really needed a RB he would have signed one. That rcb and rb issue is complicated. We don't want someone who is going to push trent out of the team. Gomez offers great cover for RB and that allows lovren game time. And, like him or love him dejan IS a very good defender. Top 25 in the world. There is fab and milner who can offer cover and I think klopp sees true potential in camancho.

Injuries happen, we have been pretty lucky this season. And that is why we have big squads.

I really think camancho is going to break through thus giving young trent more opportunities further up the field.

Klopp and the recruitment team like versatile players and it is a brilliant philosophy. Gives us options tactically and makes injuries not so drastic.

{Ed025's Note - not even top 25 in the prem for me robbie...never mind the world..

5.) 26 Jan 2019 09:28:53
Lovren isn’t good enough, a poorer version of Martin Skyrtl.

6.) 26 Jan 2019 09:40:54
Behave ed025! I love you man but he played in the ucl final and world Cup final.

List 25 better cbs in the prem (if you can be bothered)

{Ed025's Note - i cant be bothered robbie your right, but i will say 3 defenders from every other team in the prem if that narrows it down for you mate,,

7.) 26 Jan 2019 10:02:29
When people say Lovren isn't good enough but Klopp seems to think he is, do they really believe their evaluation of a player is better than Klopp's?

{Ed025's Note - no flash, but he is not going to trash one of his own players in public now is he?, he is stuck with the buffoon mate until he gets the funds to replace him mate..

8.) 26 Jan 2019 10:04:53
Hailstones. We have plenty of cover mate, Trent will be back soon, Gomez in a few weeks. We have Lovren VVD Matip for CB. Fabs should be back for Leicester also. We have Milner to cover RB if needed as well as Camacho. Chill, all is good.

9.) 26 Jan 2019 10:05:30
Yes he'd love to be a back up for us.

10.) 26 Jan 2019 10:24:34
"Poorer version of Martin Skrtel". That must be a sick joke, Ex_Reffing_Useless. Lovs is miles ahead of Skrtel to the point of it being hilarious. Let me know whenever Skrtel was able to shut down the likes of Kane in the WC semi, Lukaku, Aguero (at Anfield several times), and of course, CR7 in the CL final. Also, If I am wrong then answer me this. Klopp arrived at LFC with Skrtel and Lovs at the club. Who is still here? Hint: It is not Skrtel.

Lovs is a very capable CB, one who is brave, a fighter and never backs down. He would start easily for Utd., Arsenal and Chelsea easily. Does he have faults and issues? Yes BUT overall, he is a very good defender cos if not, Klopp would have let him go.
You may not like Lovs and that is your opinion BUT at least, back it up with some facts and logic.

11.) 26 Jan 2019 10:26:01
Flash, Klopp said We have many world class keepers at Liverpool and Mignolet was the most intelligent keepers he had worked with.
This was all before we signed Becker.

Don’t believe what managers say in public, it’s very rarely their true opinion and usually done for some other motive.

{Ed025's Note - very true ron..

12.) 26 Jan 2019 11:08:54
Spot on, Ron. In French, we call that type of rhetoric "La Langue de Bois (A wooden tongue) meaning, rhetorical diplomacy. Nothing to glean from such talk. As for Pavard, where we even interested in him? If not then NO opportunity was missed. LFC cannot sign every player a fan would like as that is not how that works.

13.) 26 Jan 2019 13:34:11
Ron. On one hand it could be rethorical diplomacy from Klopp. On the other he could be saying Something true about Migs being intelligent - he is after all a rare breed in Football having a degree. He just didn’t develop Football intelligence!

14.) 26 Jan 2019 14:08:22
Ed25 has a huge list of players at LFC that he thinks are useless. Yet we are 30 points above Everton. He would get rid of Lovren, Gini, Henderson, Fabinho to name a few.

Ever single one of them would make it into the Everton team so if he thinks we’ve got problems would love to hear his view on everton most expensing assembled squad that is now further away from their closest rivals ran. Ever! lol

‘Transition’ seems to have Been his favourite word for the last 5 years!

{Ed025's Note - we are in submission rather than transition swish, not good enough against a struggling championship side and im not making any excuses for that debacle mate, words cannot describe how bad that was and even though their 2nd goal should have been disallowed it does not excuse the lacklustre performance put in by the team, when i say team i mean 11 individuals who look as though they have never played together before..



21 Jan 2019 20:17:50
People say mane can't finish an admittedly he should have 10 more goals this season, but the guy has almost a 1 in 2 record overall an he is a winger but the most important thing is his work rate an defensive work down the left with Robertson is so important, we are very lucky too have him!

1.) 21 Jan 2019 23:37:04
His work defensively is really excellent, absolutely crucial.

2.) 22 Jan 2019 00:48:42
Mane is absolutely crucial to our team, and while he’s missed a few, he scores loads and has had some unbelievable finishes. I think some people are just spoiled. how many wingers score as many as he does?

If you look at Salah, he isn’t always that clinical, but between the two of them, they both create a huge number of chances per game through their movement, pace and hard work, which makes us incredibly difficult to stop for 90 minutes.

I would swap either for anyone.

{Ed0333's Note - Salah not clinical? Lol. Top scorer in his first season in the premiership and leads the scoring charts in his second season in the premiership I’d say that’s pretty clinical.

3.) 22 Jan 2019 01:32:25
My favourite player.
Oh when he's on form.

4.) 22 Jan 2019 04:55:26
Cmon Ed, Salah shouldve had at least 60 last year.

5.) 22 Jan 2019 05:30:29
Agree with everything, but mane misses chances. yes he creates, defends and is a wonderful player and nothing to take away from the player but his shooting at times leaves a lot to be desired and even then he has 10 or so goals which speaks volumes about how much he is involved in our front three. He could have been sitting on 15-16 goals though if he could have managed to put all them in. Its all about continually improving and bettering yourself. Winger or RB or center mid if he is missing chances he should improve that bit also.
Its not a question of how many wingers have scored that many goals and what not. It is a question of scoring even more and being the best one can be. and its not like his scoring more goals will not do us a world of good. Mane can score more as we have seen by the chances he creates and therefore Mane should score more. Mane can do even better and Mane would think so too.

6.) 22 Jan 2019 04:05:09
Fair point Ed, should have worded it better, what I meant was I’m not sure his finishing stats are so far off the other top players, just that he makes so many opportunities it’s ridiculous. He’s an unbelievable player the way he always manages to look dangerous against almost any opposition.

And of course I meant I wouldn’t swap either for anyone.

{Ed0333's Note - oh I see mate you think he should score more with the chances he creates for himself? I see what you mean now ironically last season he could have scored even more as he missed some real sitters.

7.) 22 Jan 2019 16:54:02
I wish we had more players who can’t finish but score as many as Mane 😄.

8.) 22 Jan 2019 13:46:24
I’m not sure if stats would back me up, but I get the sense it’s not his clinical finishing that makes him so special (although it’s clearly good otherwise he wouldn’t be where he is now) but more his close control, positioning and movement. he always seems to be in and around almost every chance we create.

9.) 22 Jan 2019 22:35:09
You're on fire today, Ron. Totally agree. Mane is special, plain and simple. He is a wide forward who scored 20 goals last season and is on 9 in the PL already this season after he got 10 all of last season. Hence, he is on course to best that return this season BUT I guess "he still can't finish". Frankly, I am not fussed that much about how much he is not scoring even tho he needs to improve.

I try judge a player on more than the freaking obvious and on that front, Mane is a boss. he is the main reason why Robbo is as good as he is cos he covers for him so much to the point that you will find Mane inside his own box clearing a dangerous ball or blocking a shot at goal. These are the things a lot of people don't see cos they are too busy for checking for goals and assists. Like I said, the bl***ing obvious. He terrorized Real Madrid in the CL and is a nightmare for oppo. defenders which is why they double up on him as much as they do Salah. Boss player, IMO.

Do u think that's what influenced werners poor performance at the world cup ed, he was way off level required an obviously crowds would be loud due too occasion.

I think we will agree too disagree on this one ed, as I mentioned on other posts he has had too adapt too different positions even playing in defence and his attitude is spot on and even last season he played key rolls in key games, admittedly he has not always been great but we would miss him if he weren't there .

{Ed025's Note - im sure you would hailstones, hes a very good player...when on form mate..

10 Feb 2019 12:46:21
I have been sticking up for him since we signed him even some eds slating him even, for me if we didn't have him we would miss him badly and he is an will be hard too replace not just the quality but the attitude first class, I hope he gets a contract extension he is one of our many captains on the pitch.

{Ed025's Note - he has done well for most part of this season hailstones but lets be honest its not always been the case, last season he was basically awful and looked as if he was not arsed in many games especially away from home, yes he seems to have got his act together and fair play to him for that..

{Ed0333's Note - I reckon he was in 3rd gear at least today hailstones no?
