Is it just me or does Simon Mignolet look like a skinny James Corden?

Nobody biting with, keeps goal like him too.

I though he looked like Casper the ghost, well plays like him.

With 2 jeremy beadle hands to boot.

Funnily enough I heard that joke on TV yesterday too. Can’t remember where I heard it but it was somewhere.

Ed001 I couldn't find a reference to him so wondering if you could do a profile on Gaetano Scirea. Possibly my favourite Italian defender.

{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the list for you.}

Apologies for the question but after listening to the sharkopod, I still can't understand one of the names that Ed002 mentioned. Mohammed Ubdabelli (spelling is obviously wrong) . I understood him to mean a PSG player but can't find anyone on their roster who has an even vague aquaintance with the spelling I have used.

phil_LFC

{Ed002's Note - You may have found an old one Phil - it was Mahamadou Dembele who was told to RBS in the summer and now is on loan at an Austrian side (I don't recall which). To make it easy. Benedikt Howedes (CB) (if Juventus don't take up their option). Virgil van Dijk (CB) damaged goods could well happen if the owners are willing to take the loss of face - all in all a very embarrassing situation. Stefan de Vrij (CB) - could be a good January option. Plus a youngster - Perr Schuurs (CB) expected to join at 18 - not first team right away, and an enquiry was made for another youngster
Francisco Ferreira (CB) - Benfica won't want to sell in January and at 20 and from the second tier, not one for the Liverpool first team but they have enquired.}

Question for Ed002:
Is Klopp looking to sign one or two centre backs? Or is it the case of one in January and another in the summer?
Personally think we need two.

{Ed002's Note - Initially it will just be one I think IB.}


2.) 05 Dec 2017 10:35:04
Ok cheers Ed002.
De Vrij is my pick for January and then someone like Koulibaly who is much more cultured defender than VVD. But I fear there will be more attractive options for Koulibaly in the summer with Barcelona also interested.

{Ed002's Note - You are correct that barcelona has Kalidou Koulibaly on their list of CB targets, not at the top, but on their list.}


3.) 05 Dec 2017 20:30:52
Ed002 thanks for that. Must be because Im an Ozzie but have some troubles understanding your accent at times:-) Maybe your sharkopods should come with subtitles - like those TV shows my wife watches eg Rat Bastards :-)

{Ed002's Note - I am told I have a slightly odd accent as I left America 36 years ago.}

If you can, check out the U23 game against Everton. The third goal in particular is a lovely example of a team goal finished off with a cracker of a shot from Brewster.

It's only a matter of time before Rhian gets a spot on the bench surely! It's unfortunate we went out of the Carabao cup so early otherwise he'd be in around that team 100%.


2.) 28 Nov 2017 08:20:47
Solanke has only played 84 minutes in the premier league this season, we also have Ings who is wanting to return and Sturridge seems to be the player given the minutes when Firminho isn't playing. Brewster is 4th or 5th choice at the mo and unfortunately minutes up top for LFC are sacred at the moment.


3.) 28 Nov 2017 13:39:12
Brewster will get his chance soon enough. Sturridge and one of Origi/ Ings will be gone in the summer so we have Firmino, Solanke, Ings and Brewster as our forward options for next season. A few matches in the domestic cup would be good experience for a 17 year old.

Ed001 don't know if you are going to do a review on non-LFC managers but if so then Alec Stock might be one to look at.

{Ed001's Note - I am going to gradually get through all the professional teams I can mate.}

@kloppshop
Bale is very injury prone and a big risk at the wages he wants. Most likely to goto Man Utd who can afford the risk
Benzema is a nut job who is more interested in being a wannabe gangster than in being a serious footballer - another big risk who would require a major change in our team for us to accommodate.

Leaves Ronaldo who whilst a brilliant footballer and would be a great example to our youngsters on how training hard can maximise your chances in the game, is increasingly showing the affects of age. At the wages he would command, it would be huge pressure on Klopp to play him instead of Mane or Salah.
So my conclusion is no they all wouldn't walk into any team in the world - certainly not ours.

Flanno should be thanking his lucky stars he is not taking up a place in gaol.

Cialb - I like how you are trying to think outside the box. Personally I think that would leave Firmino isolated in the middle and would also clog up the space our fullbacks would be running into. I suppose the fullbacks could move centrally in attack much like Lahm did at Bayern but Im not sure we have the players for that. TAA maybe but our left side I doubt.

From memory its at least partially based on your revenue. As in the more money you make, the more you can spend. So if say we were to get a whacking great shirt deal from Adidas then we could spend more in the market under FFP. Is this correct Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Not really.}

Its only worth signing players if they are going to improve us. Its easy to say the current ones aren't good enough but no point is flushing money down the toilet simply to announce a transfer. Point is we have to find player (s) who are better than our current ones who are also available and wish to come to us - which is why Jan is always tricky.
Personally Id like to see money spent on overhauling the scouting department.

Personally I think Lallana should be sitting the matches out until his ban expires for U23. Yeah I know he is eligible but he shouldn't be.

I read Paul's Brittons book on this - he readily admits he kept the worst parts of the crime out of the book but what little he had to say was sickening. Poor James Bulger's parents must have suffered through the years- and it can't be an easier for them when they hear that Venables keeps getting busted in relation to sexual exploitation of children.

If we eliminate the offside then I suspect a lot of teams would adopt long ball footy.

If Klopp wants to play a double pivot, then he needs players who think and look to see how they can help rather than just charge blindly forward. At the moment, we have a midfield who seem unwilling (or perhaps unable in the heat of the battle) to think about covering for each other. There has been some improvement eg in covering for the fullbacks. But the big problem in my opinion, is that the midfield haven't worked out how to cover for each other eg if Can goes on one of his charges up field, Wiji should be thinking about whether he needs to settle in behind him. If Can and Wiji are both playing DM then they seem fine with being able to stay back. Its when they are called upon to play flexibly that they have issues. But its even wider spread than that. For example if all the midfield has charged forward then its incumbent on the other players to recognise this and rearrange to cover the hole. Our fullbacks for example seem to be slowly improving in this respect but we need more leaders on the pitch who are willing to call out their team mates on this.

You ring around your mates and get them to chuck some money into a tin. Then count it up and you know how much you can bid.
