Why is it a good move?

 

You would think if he was good enough to get as much playing time he got for us last season, the only option should be a loan to a Premier League club.

 

He will not improve much in the Championship if anything at all.

He will improve by playing week in, week out.

 

The lad is only 19, so the Championship will be perfect for a season and then maybe the Premier League for him next season. He'll be about 21 then and hopefully well and ready to join the first-team setup permanently.

 

He's a player.

No point sending him to a prem team that gets bummed every week and he is there to keep the score down. Let him go and develop his expressive side. He has the physical attributes to worry about defensive stuff later in his career.

I'm just glad Houllier isn't here to jinx him with one of his odd comparisons like Murphy being the English Zidane or Cisse being the New Henry.

Do you just disagree with everything for the sake of it?

No.

 

Its probably a good move for Shelvey himself as the Championship is about his level.

 

When it comes to his development as a player I doubt it will make him any good as he will be pretty average and not stand out in any game, the players surrounding him will be of average quality as well and to blossom and actually develop its always better to play with better players something he would do every day in training with us.

 

At Blackpool he will not really be up against any quality players either so that will not really do anything for him either.

We don't even know how long the deal is yet Code, a few months competing to play week in week out is the right environment to sharpen the ambition to play.

So how come the Liverpool coaches don't know this?

 

Perhaps they have weighed all the factors, including what you are saying, and have concluded playing time is better for him, as training, even with a better quality better, is still only training and can't match the intensity of a proper game.

Is this The Reverend showing his frustration?

It’s so painfully obvious that it’s a shame it had to be stated, but the Rev is correct. And the fact he seems slightly irked has had me checking the skies for 4 horse men……..

 

I think Shelvey has a real chance of been top notch. Any type of playing time now will be worth it and will stand him in good stead. Just look through history and you will see top notch footy players sent out to lower league clubs when they were young to get playing time. Beckham springs to mind when he was sent to PNE. Zidane to Hull is another example*

TBH I haven't seen anything from Shelvey that makes me think wow when you see some young players at times and you know they're going to be class throughout their careers. Don't get me wrong he has talent but if I was a betting man (and I am) I will predict now that I don't think he will end up anything more than a good Premier League player not the superstar some are proclaiming him to be. Hope I'm very wrong like.

 

I thought Le Tallec was going to be awesome after his debut at Gresty Road back in 2003 so what do I know?

    • The sooner fans can return the better. It really is awful viewing without fans, and I rarely watch any matches on the telly unless we are playing. It's just shite.
    • Keita has on several occasions given some sensational performances, although admittedly it's been a while since the last one. I'm sure Klopp could turn him into a consistent performer if he ever stayed fit. A fit and in form Keita starts ahead of Jones for me.
    • I think Klopp's best quality is open-mindedness. He looks like he could make it work with anybody. He came in and created a perfect working relationship with people at the club who before his arrival, were seen as incompetent. He's empowered all of them and they've empowered him.
    • It’s a really good listen.  I’m not quoting him here but I think the important thing Stu points out is that there’s a difference between the stats the clubs are using and developing to find out answers to problems and the stats that internet warriors like Code scout around for to back up their already formed and immovable (usually laughably wrong) opinion.   The great thing about football is that there are just so many variables on and off the pitch.  It’s what makes stats so difficult to use.  In sports like Baseball, Cricket and even NFL they’re stop start.  You play to a thrown/bowled ball or play in 5-10 second bursts.  It’s so much easier to see through stats how good individual players are or decision making is.  The only comparable variable really is the role of a quarter back.  There’s so many things that are out of their control that can effect their performance.  Not as much as an individual footballer though.   I think XG is definitely a load of shite though.  A side can score a goal first like we did in the champions league final and then play the percentage game of twatting it up the pitch under any pressure.  The XG will then say you were shit but in reality the team managed the game the way they needed to.  The same goes for that risky pass thing that was mentioned.  Xabi was an outrageously good passer of the ball and is therefore more likely to be able to hit that pass than Lucas for example and that doesn’t get factored in.   I think the heading thing is massively skewed.  The balls were a lot heavier years ago and they were definitely heading the ball a lot more than now because the game was far worse technically.  The fella at Hope Uni who did a study just stunk of someone trying to make a name for himself.  He got players to head a ball 20 times in a row and then “measured” their cognitive response which he said was clearly effected.  This then makes national news.  Players very rarely head a ball 20 times in a game never mind in the space of a few minutes and his answer to that was he thought it wouldn’t be too much different.  It was laughable.
