Have a question for ed002. I was very impressed by Koulibaly of Napoli especially his speed and recovery, also very good in the air and I think, as VVD for now is dead we should atleast try. Has there been any aproach for the player apart from chelsea? napoli are hard to negotiate but would like him at our club. thanks in advance.

mandzo

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea had an offer rejected last year and have not lost sight of the player.}

This guy is a real beast.


2.) 21 Jun 2017 19:46:37
To be fair Ed002, it'd be hard to lose sight of him at 6'7" I reckon I can see him from here if I squint a bit.


3.) 21 Jun 2017 20:47:05
If you squint a lot, Klaven looks great.


4.) 22 Jun 2017 11:40:22
Thought rudiger looked very comfortable on the ball the other day when I watched him and seemed to have decent pace. Whilst I like VVD I have a feeling the FA are likely to look very closely at the deal if we try for that to happen. Shame, but we know klopp wants a CB and will pay big so we need alternatives.


5.) 22 Jun 2017 12:18:42
Youd have to squint so hard that your eyes would nearly be in again.


 

 

04 Jul 2016 15:20:25
As it stands Zielinski is Napoli bound. We will try to push for Dahoud now. if not we will stick with wee Joe Pirlo.

hey eds and reds. I was wondering is there any truth in firmino to city rumours?

mandzo

1.) 21 Jun 2016 15:57:52
of course there's not.


2.) 21 Jun 2016 17:09:08
Not sure he would enjoy the standard of play at Bristol City, nor could they afford him. He would enjoy learning the rhyming slang though.


 

 

03 May 2016 08:42:15
Hey ed02. i know this might be a stupid question but croatian media are pumping the story of kovacic joining liverpool as goetze might be out of reach and with crazy salary. does it have any legs as i'm a big admirer of mateo i think he needs the right coach to explode someone to trust in him and give him a proper role. thanks in advance.

mandzo

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}


1.) 03 May 2016 10:52:11
Cheers ed, it might not be the news that fans neccessarily want to hear, but the truth is always better to know. Much appreciated.


2.) 03 May 2016 11:10:33
I honestly can't see why we would want to buy him when we have bought a similar player in Grujic? Surely we should be scouting and going after a proper defensive minded midfielder who can actually tackle?


3.) 03 May 2016 12:13:52
We have Henderson, Can and Milner who can play b2b. Stewart, Chirivella and Lucas to play cdm. Grujic, Allen, Coutinho and Lallana who can play cam.

And that's just assuming Rossiter and Brannagan leave the club which is no guarantee.

I really don't think we need to worry about signing any midfielders when we need a keeper, a right back, a left back, a centre back and a wide forward.


4.) 03 May 2016 13:05:31
MK the weekend showed the need for a top class centre midfielder who can tackle and boss it.


5.) 03 May 2016 13:26:47
Mr Dennis, the weekend showed that when we have both of our first choice midfielders out injured and we choose to rest the other 3 fit ones (Lucas, Milner and Allen) that Chirivella, Brannagan and Stewart don't have enough experience. You can't seriously use Sunday to justify needing a midfielder when we played our 6th, 7th and 8th choice centre midfielders, can you? Not to mention we already have Allan out on loan, Rossiter injured and Grujic joining in the summer. That's 11 centre midfielders. How many do you want? Another 5 so we have 8 for each position? You know, just incase there's a chronic stomach bug that spreads through the team and 14 players miss the game with the runs?


6.) 03 May 2016 13:34:12
Yeah his name is Emre Can.


7.) 03 May 2016 13:35:48
Oh and just so you know, Stewart made 5 successful tackles, 2 interceptions and 4 clearances. More than any other player on the pitch. It's not his fault he had a child next to him in Pedro who looked like a very skinny rabbit in the headlights of an Artic Truck.

I think you're being very knee jerk about this. Klopp rates Stewart very highly and Sunday will have only reassured Klopp that Stewart is up to first team football. He looked more comfortable than any other outfield player in our team and the result was in no way a reflection of his performance. It was hard for him to control the game because he was surrounded by dross performances.

Unless Hendo, Lucas or Can leave then it'd be foolish to sign another midfielder. Grujic is just arriving and Stewart has signed a new contract and is going nowhere.


8.) 03 May 2016 13:07:20
Klopp doesn't rate any of the CDM you mentioned hence he plays Can / Henderson in that role, what are you even talking Adam. Mateo is a touch of class and you will only realize if he pulls that red shirt. His first class touch on the ball makes hims just elegant.
Grujic is just 19.


9.) 03 May 2016 15:16:01
Grujic is 19 yes. But Hendo is 26. Lucas is 29. Can is 22. And Stewart is 22. Besides, what does being 19 have to do with it? Isn't Delle Alli the same age? Would you pass on signing him for £5m?

He plays Henderson and Can in deeper roles Harry because Lucas is seen as experienced cover and Stewart is just finding his feet in the Premier League.

We don't need any midfielders unless we sell someone. I can tell I'm not going to get through to you though because you've spent the last 3 years claiming Henderson isn't good enough and needs replacing; which is crap by the way.


10.) 03 May 2016 18:22:36
Mk it may have escaped your notice but teams have been able run through our midfield at will over the last few years and that was painfully obvious on Sunday, we've a complete lack of bite in midfield and we need a Xhaka, Kante or a Lars Bender type to give us that steel. But we certainly don't need kovacic who for all his lovely flicks and occasional Hollywood ball offers nothing. I think Allen and Lucas will go this summer so a proper nails hard defensive midfielder will be needed. Otherwise we'll struggle again.


11.) 03 May 2016 22:18:53
To be fair, kovacic is quality and I'm all for signing quality over quantity. If he's an improvement on our starting 11. Sign him.


12.) 03 May 2016 22:28:55
If Lucas goes I agree with you, we need another midfielder. Odds are it would be Zielinski though who isn't exactly a destroyer. Klopp rates Can though so he is the closest we will see to a destroyer I reckon.


13.) 03 May 2016 17:04:49
Adam, I agree with your last line as we would need to move 1 or 2 midfielders to make room for someone and we should be moving Allen and Lucas to bring in one.

Regarding Henderson. I still say he isn't a Holding midfielder by any means.

Alli has played in England while Grujich is yet to touch his feet in England.


14.) 04 May 2016 11:29:22
We need to stop teams running through us at will, we're a soft touch in midfield and that has been exposed far too often.

Kovacic isn't a tough player by any stretch of the imagination and neither is Zeilinski and we actually could do with midfielders that are physically strong and able to tackle, both of them are lightweights who would get blown aside by a decent gust of wind.

Honestly don't get why people cream their pants over Kovacic, hasn't set the world alight at Madrid and was hardly the greatest player at inter, text book youtube highlights player.


 

 

11 Mar 2016 20:39:03
hey ed02. here is another random name i'm impressed with and followed him. Youri Tielemans. do you know if liverpool atleast scouted him and is there an interest in him from other clubs? thank you ed :)

mandzo

{Ed002's Note - Tielemans has attracted long-term interest from Chelsea with Atletico Madrid, Arsenal, Juventus, Napoli, Barcelona and Marseille all showing an interest in the past 9 months. Plenty of other sides will have had him scouted. Chelsea have actively been speaking with his club since January 2014 but would even now need to send him on loan for, I imagine, at least a year or more. Atletico spoke with Anderlecht this summer and the player liked the idea of a move to Madrid but nothing could be resolved for a move at the time. The problem with a move to England is that he is certainly not ready to step right in to the first team at many of the more senior clubs. If he accepts that and a loan, then a move is possible. Whilst Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea may well all look to offers in January, a move before next summer is unlikely which may be an issue for Atletico. Juventus are keeping a slightly low profile but if others bid then they will as well. I also understand that Piero Ausilio attended the Spurs vs Anderlecht game to watch two players - Tielemans being one.}


1.) 11 Mar 2016 20:52:25
thank you ed very much, i think he is one of best young midfielders and future star, great vision and resistant on pressing with good range of passing real modern midfielder.

{Ed002's Note - But not moving to Liverpool.}


2.) 11 Mar 2016 20:54:26
Klopp loves him but with emergence of can and hendo in the middle and matip, grujic, Lucas and Allen. Stewart and the rest it would be another silly move to be fair as he is a lad who needs plenty of games to develop and we couldn't offer that.


3.) 14 Mar 2016 07:49:25
Last I checked it was said he is not ready yet for EPL, could be wrong.

Congrats to our defence for another clean sheet! Have this feeling Karius will grab his chance and be our Gk for years to come as he and VVD got us stability.

mandzo

1.) 18 Mar 2018 13:21:04
Defenders look like they have a keeper they can trust. He’s been on good form since getting the shirt back. Has not put a foot wrong and produced some top class saves.


2.) 18 Mar 2018 20:25:00
He's a human being, he'll make a mistake at some point. Watch the slagging he gets then.
It looks like he's shaken Mignolet off for the number 1 spot, and deservedly so. Fingers crossed he goes from strength to strength.


3.) 18 Mar 2018 21:04:34
In the Watford game, Robbo intercepted a cross in the box, passed it to Wiji and with Watford players around him, passed it to Karius. Karius did not panic for a second. He recieved the ball and pinged it up field with a calming air of confidence. This is where I felt in the moment that Karius is now comfortable in his skin as LFC no. 1.

AlsoThe defenders trust him more even tho, he's still rough around the edges and needs to improve on other aspects of his game and he can only do that by playing more and improving.

FlashTheRed is right tho. He has made next to no mistakes so far since the City game BUT if he makes one next time, many of our fans will turn on him like a snap of a finger.


4.) 18 Mar 2018 21:45:10
Sad but true brover.


 

 

16 Mar 2018 12:24:14
I have a question for ed02 about young gk from Hajduk Split Karlo Letica. he became first choice couple of months ago and though only 19 had 2 penalty saves and single handly won it for Hajduk against Dinamo Zagreb in the derby making 4 world class saves. he even scored a goal i 95th minute in last match with his head and winnig the match for Split club. marca wrote last week that Real Madrid want him and he doesn't even have pro contract. Lad is so down to earth and you can see with his every action he is so strong in his mind and he is 2.03 m tall and very good with his feet. his agent said there is host of europen giants in talks but they would like him to be first choice. I was wondering is Liverpool one of the clubs involved bcos i think deal can be struck at decent price to let him be in Split for 2 more years and get one of best young gk in the world?

mandzo

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Liverpool and these questions belong on the European pages.}


 

 

27 Feb 2018 13:51:27
If we really get Jorginho we will fight for the tittle. period. he would bring balance and help with the teams that sit deep as his passing range is amazing. he is picking runners in behind the defence for joke. imagine salah and mane running in behind the defence and keita and jorginho feeding them. our defence will be much more solid next season and we would have 2 brilant players in every line. he is the playeri would chose over any other player bcos he solves half of our problems!

mandzo

1.) 27 Feb 2018 14:06:57
Couldn’t agree more!


2.) 27 Feb 2018 15:11:00
He's a great player, but i really think it's being over done a bit now 😂 how can you say signing one player will make us a title challenger, and state it as fact? Aquilani was a good playmaker in Serie A. Midfielders from Serie A don't adapt well historically to the Premier league because the tempo is much higher.

Everyone is completely ignoring his weaknesses. Jorginho played against Man City for Napoli and his team lost 2-4 and had City not taken their foot off the gas it would've been worse as the score line flattered Napoli. Emre Can shut City out almost completely for 75 minutes until he was hooked for Milner and we conceded 2 late consolation goals. Can had De Bruyne in his pocket, and Jorginho had his pants pulled down! So whilst he's a great player, he's not the messiah who will save us from any future defeat. He's one player. An extremely talented one, but he still has a blind spot.

I think Jorginho will help us massively at beating teams who sit deep, because he has a lot of quality offensively and his vision is sublime. But to say he will definitely make us title challengers on his own when he got his backside handed to him on a silver platter by our No. 1 premier league rivals less than 4 months ago, is just hyperbole. He has a skillset we lack in midfield and that makes him a good option who would be really exciting if he signed, but let's not go overboard.

Keita and Henderson will support Jorginho better defensively than Allan or Hamsik do, but we can only speculate as to whether it will work well as a midfield. Football is not an exact science. I rather think people are building themselves up for disappointment anyway. Ceballos looks far more likely right now. Maybe we should start a joint hate mob for Ceballos and Navas until we get Alisson and Jorginho?

I think Jorginho is an excellent choice who would improve our squad massively, but he's not Lionel Messi. Come on lads, you don't seriously believe he could single handedly transform us into title winners? Do you?

A little bit of perspective and realism wouldn't go amiss on here at times.

{Ed001's Note - ah come on MKS we all know one player can turn any team into title contenders, just look at when Arsenal signed their missing piece, Petr Cech, and now they are dominati.....oh wait...}


3.) 27 Feb 2018 15:24:16
I think you'll find that Xhaka was the missing pie- oh wait. No. It was actually Lacazette who was the missing pi- oh wait. No. It was actually Aubameyang who was the missing p- youvknow what? never mind 😂

Just to reiterate i do genuinely rate Jorginho as a playmaker, and he would be a class signing in general. But i can't see us pulling it off for one, and for two, he certainly isn't so unbelievably good that we'll be transformed by his signing over night! People just need to calm down a tad and not build it up so much, because they might be disappointed. It's only February! I saw him play for Hellas Verona back when we were linked under Rodgers and you could see then he was a talent. I bet a lot of people had forgotten about him until this link popped up a couple of days ago though. Yet now, he is the one player everyone wanted? But they just decided not to mention it? 🤔.

{Ed001's Note - you forgot about Mkhitaryan....}


4.) 27 Feb 2018 15:41:22
Mkhitaryan would have won them the Carabao cup if he hadn't been cup tied. That's what I've genuinely been told today 😂.

{Ed001's Note - one day someone will open their eyes and realise how entirely terrible he is.}


5.) 27 Feb 2018 16:05:33
I like mkhitaryan. I think he went to the wrong club. Should have come here.


6.) 27 Feb 2018 18:11:48
Ed001, You being knowledgeable and calling Mkhitaryan terrible is ridiculous, Obviously you are biased against him.
2015-16 Season was voted player of the year in the Bundesliga,
And if you want to point towards his Man United experience, well he is not the first player in history that JM destroys, he might not be world class or top player in the world, but to call him terrible is nothing but laughable.

{Ed001's Note - if you say so, but I don't base my view on bias or an idiotic vote. He has poor control, lacks vision, can't pass but is lightning quick and can score because he makes decent runs forward. Only if the team is set up around him though as he is simply not a good player. I don't care that he played for United, that makes no difference to my view that a player who has had a few good months in his entire career is not a very good player. I would stop trying to be a smartarse and try watching the player before you try and call my opinion laughable. Laughable is suggesting a crappy vote makes a player great!}


7.) 27 Feb 2018 18:15:55
We've had our own missing pieces, Ince and Kewel cine to mind. Just thinking of Glass houses and all that.

{Ed001's Note - I am sorry but I don't see the relevance to a bit of banter.}


8.) 27 Feb 2018 19:11:11
Jorginho does a lot of defensive work that you have not seen MK. So it’s pointless saying he is pants against tough opposition. Our entire team were pants against City at Ethihad! There is absolutely no need to agree with you!
Just coz you rate Ceballos there is no necessity the entire web page should agree with you!


9.) 27 Feb 2018 19:30:46
One player can make a huge difference though:
Kante (Leicester and Chelsea)
Suarez (Liverpool)


10.) 27 Feb 2018 20:01:12
Ron, only that at Chelsea, that team was already great and Kante just made them better. As for LC, I agree with you that Kante was a beast there BUT so was Mahrez, Drinkwater, and Vardy. LC caught lightning in a bottle and Ranieri was humble in public and they held their nerve and got it done. So in the end, one player cannot do it all as he needs help as well.

We caught lightning in a bottle as well in the final 6 months of 13/ 14 where we won 12 in a row with LS and Studge along side Hendo, Cou and Sterling who were all on fire at the time BUT there were still defensive holes in that team and instead of BR being humble and calm and trying to make us better, he kept being arrogant and believing in his own hype and the rest is history. Like I said in the end, one player cannot do it all as he needs help as well.


11.) 27 Feb 2018 21:35:50
Wow, guy isn’t signed and so many are complaining and bitching, rather sad reading if I’m honest. I remember when there was excitement and hope when we were linked to very good players.
So some posters HOPE he’ll be a huge success. Is that any different than the daily posts HOPING Karius has a great season and proves the doubters Wrong? Or the HOPE that Gomez improves a lot and becomes first choice CB next season! Or the HOPE that Hendo gets over his injuries. Or the hope the front 3 stay and continue their amazing form? Or the hope Keita is as amazing as some think and he dominates midfield next season and stops the silly bookings? Or the hope that Robertson and TAA fix their faults and become great fullbacks?
You see we are a team of lots of hopes, I’m ok with Jorginho being another otherwise we being biased as we have so many other hopes why not him too!


12.) 27 Feb 2018 23:35:17
BRover - I said one player can make a huge difference and sited Kante and Suarez!

What’s your beef with that?


13.) 28 Feb 2018 08:00:08
Salah has made a pretty huge difference to Liverpool?


14.) 28 Feb 2018 09:41:21
of course there can be a missing piece, but that analogy does forget that there is the rest of the jigsaw that took years to put together!

I don't know much about Jorginho to be honest, but like I've said on other occasions any deep lying playmaker that comes in and allows hendo, gini, milner, ox and co to play their natural games will be a much better balance for us.


 

 

12 Feb 2018 07:25:40
Just wanted to say what a difference solid gk performance makes. Ward Prowse header and 1on1 with hojberg i think (know it is hard angle but migs conceded worse) and later we are comfortable and no drama. bravo Karius hope you grow every game, it is so hard to come to new club and shine not many goalkeepers have done that (even de Gea made lot of mistakes first season) . our defece looks better when Karius is on the goal especially CBs.

mandzo

1.) 12 Feb 2018 07:53:13
To be fair, Migs saves both of those (and then let's a goal in by flapping a cross)


2.) 12 Feb 2018 08:05:59
Personally i think fans are putting him on a pedestal he really doesn't deserve, highlighting every decent save he makes and comparing him to Mignolet.


3.) 12 Feb 2018 08:18:05
I agree RedLorry. Knowing Mignolet, he would probably save the Hojberg shot, save the strong header from JWP, but then he'd have flapped at the crosses whoch resulted in thebweak headers from Carillo and JWP, and both would've gone in straight down the middle into an open net with Mignolet lying on the floor.

Karius should be playing every game until the summer. Mignolet can be like a cat at times, but he's used up his 9 lives.


4.) 12 Feb 2018 09:33:25
Karius was interviewed in the Guardian on Weds last week. Its a great read. Gives you an idea about the lad and his take on being the Liverpool No 1.


5.) 12 Feb 2018 09:41:13
Give him a break Irish Rover. The pundits and a lot of fans pick fault at very slightest thing he does. Yet we aren't allowed to give him praise for couple good saves at 1.0 and good fast distribution to start move for 1st goal? And we wonder why his confidence looked 0 a while back!


6.) 12 Feb 2018 13:31:28
No one cares what Migs would have done cos he is a non starter and how it took this long to bin him for good is still a mystery.

Irish, let it go, man. No one is putting him on a pedestal. Shoot, no one even did that when he had a much better perf. vs Spurs than last night. He is doing well. We can all agree on that w/ o the constant nitpicking. The goal Newcastle scored last night was one DDG could do nothing about. Had that been Karius, it would have been nitpicked on to find fault with him as Coo9 said.

The guy cannot do a darn thing right in the eyes of many esp. the pundits cos it seems like it would literally kill them to say he did well or was solid. The guy is on a roll now and the hope is he keeps it up and whether he is the guy or not, it will be up to Klopp and no one else. Not the useless pundits nor his shameless detractors who have nothing good to say about him.


7.) 12 Feb 2018 15:31:00
Irish - I disagree, I think the comparrison is important because you know everything wrong he does will be blown up ridiculously. It's important right now to highlight when he does things right. And we can say Mingolet saves both of those shots but considering he's let in 9 of the last 10 shots on target he faced. he probably doesnt.


8.) 12 Feb 2018 15:48:18
I don't think he was amazing. He threw the ball to Southampton once and it was just carelessness. We are so used to below par gk performances from both migs and Karius that when we see a keeper have a decent game we call it a great performance. It wasn't, it was OK.

I still think we haven't seen the best of him but he has 12/ 20 games to show why he should be given the shirt. He is low on confidence, that much is obvious. Loved mks 9 lives comment. The only time I would give migs a game would be as a sub, late in the game if we have to defend a penalty, even then I would worry. Nah, migs has played his last game for us hopefully.


9.) 12 Feb 2018 19:30:28
As a certified "Karius sceptic" I have to declare O think he’s done well. Not perfect, but an improvement. Keep it up Loris 👍.


 

 

08 Sep 2017 15:23:25
Hello scousers. First of all i want to apologize to our captain as i doubted he will be to his best and he is slowly getting there. so im optimistic about our season. we improved in this transfer window and we will push. think we will do really well in CL especially in knock out phase if we get there.
Hope we learned something from last season and we stay in a race longer.
CITY will be massive game and we will see where we are against one of the best!

Absolutely delighted to hear we are in for him. He is such a wonderful player and something we are missing when teams sit deep as he can carry the ball and slice apart defence with a pass. good to be linked with jorginho and draxler. Keita already signed. Good times ahead.

Blaming Karius and Lovren for goals is just not right guys. both goals are product of a lot of mistakes from a lot of players not just Lovren, Karius, and young TAA. Our defence has improved massivly over past month and they need to grow together. You can't blame Lovren for losing areal chalenge 35metars from our goal with Lukaku. player can't win every duel Lovren is very solid lately and his positioning and passing improved. he will grow with VVD.

Credit to Dejan too. He has been a rock since Vvd arrived, only exception United game where our tactics were wrong in so many ways. seems that our defence looks good, would like one good cb for rotation and Matip and Klavan sold. we would have TAA, Gomez, Clyne, Lovren, VvD, Robbo, Moreno and new CB. good enough in my eyes!

At this level, Lovren needs commanding cb alongside him and he will be perfect! Knowing him, he depends a lot on partners in defence, and karius and vvd made him enjoy his game!

Couldnt agree more Mk! Awesome post. We are Liverpool football club, we can beat anyone. We are 5 times European champions they should be afraid of us! Be agressive and run like mad and we will have our chances. think this will be epic 2 matches just like the 2 legs against chelsea and arsenal in the past! And whole world will be our fans in this one :)
