Liverpool transfer news live: Star man wanted by Real Madrid, Mbappe latest and more latest Klopp has said he would quit Liverpool if video cameras filmed him behind the scenes After Wednesday’s Champions League victory over Red Bull Salzburg the Austrian club shared a clip on social media of their coach Jesse Marsch’s half-time team-talk at Anfield, in which the animated American switched between English and German as he tried to get his message across in an expletive-laden speech.There is a growing trend for clubs to invite television crews into their inner sanctum and the Reds were one of the first to do it with the 2012 ‘Being: Liverpool’ documentary.It focused on their first season under Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers, who coincidentally returns to Anfield for the first time with Leicester on Saturday, but while offering some fly-on-the-wall insight was often cringeworthy and was widely criticised by, among others, former players.Rodgers subsequently admitted the documentary, which famously featured him admonishing a young Raheem Sterling on the training ground in front of his team-mates, and the memorable ‘three envelopes’ speech in which he claimed he had written down the names of three players he said would let them down over the impending campaign.“If LFC put a video of me out in that situation, then I would leave the club. That’s the truth and that’s all I will say about it,” said the German.

Yesterday he trained with the team for the first time. He looked really good, but we will see,” said the Reds boss, who confirmed he will be without central defender Joel Matip for the second successive match.

From my side it’s fine. All the issues from a couple of years ago, when we started living in his house, are sorted,” said the manager, who currently rents Rodgers’ house in Formby,“We love living there.

first_imgTags:#Feedback#Guest Posts#Lean Startup#Minimum Viable Product#MVP#yec Guest author Scott Gerber is the founder of the Young Entrepreneur Council.Throwing together a minimum viable product, or MVP, is a great way to test your concept and find out what customers really want before you sink more money into the game.However, there’s a fine line between tossing something together and a MVP that’s too buggy to launch. Finding that sweet spot is tough—spend too long on a proof of concept and you’re wasting your time, but send out a too-buggy product and you risk your reputation. How do you know when you’re ready?I asked 10 entrepreneurs from YEC how they know if an MVP is ready launch. Their best answers are below.1. Your MVP Solves a ProblemYou shouldn’t judge your product based on feature set. You should judge it on whether or not it solves a problem. Here’s a good way to think about your MVP: Suppose you want to help someone get from A to B. You want to build a car, but a good MVP might be a bike. Then, you add more features and you have a scooter. Over time, you end up with a car, but along the way your product was bug-free, fully functional, and helped to solve a real world problem. You’re ready to launch when you can validate that your product solves a real problem faced by real customers. —Jonny Simkin, Swyft2. You Know the Goal of Your Product LaunchWhat do you want out of someone’s use? Determine the goal of your launch. If you want someone to become a paying customer of your MVP, it’s most likely going to require a more polished product. Many companies build a pre-MVP, which is a simple splash page outlining the product features. Then, there’s a button that says “sign me up.” You can use this form to collect valuable information such as why they want your product and what their current solution is. In return, you can offer these early signups a free sample or discount of the product when it’s ready. If you want more than feedback and early user data, then launch the MVP and see what the churn rate is. —Nanxi Liu, Enplug3. You Have a Core GroupBefore launching, find a small group of users who are passionate about the problem you are providing a solution for. Their passion is key—they will tolerate the bugs and give you meaningful feedback. Once you’ve solved for those initial issues, do a second wave of user testing. Make improvements based on the feedback you receive. Take note of patterns. If 10 users have the same issue, you know you need a fix. If one user encounters a bug that no other users do, make sure it’s not specific to that user’s device. After this wave of testing and improvements, your product is ready for a larger audience. There will still be bugs, but your team should take note of and address feedback constantly. Keep making incremental improvements as the audience increases and your product will succeed. —Mac Morgan, Tonic Design4. You Have a HypothesisThe point of an MVP is not to put out a product that instantly gains traction (although that would be great). Instead, a MVP should be the minimum amount of work you need to put in to test a hypothesis and learn the result. It can be buggy and look horrible so long as the bugs do not affect testing if your hypothesis is true. You only test on a small subset of your eventual audience, so you do not need to develop every feature at once. Also, don’t worry about scaling or features that are “great to have” but not absolutely required. If you build something to scale and your hypothesis is wrong, you wasted a lot of time building a scalable system that never will get traffic. So focus on getting something out there and learning as quickly as possible. —Charlie Graham, Shop It To Me5. You’re Not Ready for a Real LaunchWhat you’re worried about is the reaction you might get from “launching” a buggy product. But no one says you have to do a gigantic PR push, paid advertising, or an email blast for a product that isn’t ready for it. An MVP is supposed to be something you can get in front of a handful of people and see how they respond. You can start doing that at any point when you actually have something you can put in front of people, even if it’s not functional (just mockups or wireframes). So don’t worry about the big launch for now—you can save that for when your product is ready. But how will you know if your product is ready unless you’ve actually tested it live and in the field? —Mattan Griffel, One Month6. You Have One Killer FeatureIdentify the single most important feature for your target market and make sure your product does it perfectly. In our case, that was tracking time and productivity on individual tasks simultaneously. In the case of your own business, it could be whatever solves your customers’ pain point with the greatest specificity. If you can knock it out of the park, you’re at the MVP stage. Additional features can be a little buggy if you’re delivering great value on your core feature. If the core feature itself is even a little bit buggy, you’ll turn people off of your product. —Dave Nevogt, Hubstaff.com7. You’re Ready for Useful FeedbackThe point of launching a MVP is to start a feedback cycle that leads you to a more polished product. When you go out and watch people use your product (yes, physically watch them), you want to make sure that the bugs don’t become the focal point of your MVP. Mobile experience not great? Have people test it on a desktop. Servers occasionally return an error? Tell people to refresh the page. Don’t have a login portal? Do it manually for the first 100 users. None of these things are showstoppers for a MVP. But if your application takes 20 seconds to load each page, the only feedback you’re going to get is “make it faster.” —Slater Victoroff, Indico8. You Have No BugsMVP means feature reduction—it does not mean bug acceptability. Lay out the features that your team decides are the minimum functionality requirements to attract your target audience, and make sure they work flawlessly. Leave your user base boasting about how well it works even if they’re longing for more features. Samsung came to market with the Galaxy Gear almost two years before the Apple Watch. The product only came to life because of the Apple Watch rumors. Samsung rushed to market with a watch that didn’t do much and didn’t do it well. Apple didn’t panic that they were going to be second to market on their own idea. Instead, they patiently crafted the perfect product and are now reaping the rewards. Even Samsung lovers or Apple haters can’t deny the numbers. —Jere Simpson, Kitewire9. You’ve Been Building for a MonthAn MVP is something that you launch to a few of your most failure-tolerant customers in order to test your assumptions early on. Hence, rather than worrying about making a buggy launch, I would worry about how much time is spent building the MVP. Ideally, if you have spent around a month, then it’s time to launch the MVP. Any more time spent on this first iteration is too much and means that you are building more than necessary to test your basic assumptions. One needs to remember that the MVP is a minimum rendition of your idea. More often than not, you will end up rebuilding the product after getting consumer feedback. Hence, worry about time to market and not whether the MVP is in a perfect state for launch. —Pratham Mittal, VenturePact 10. You Have Your Greatest Work ReadyThe question I always have my employees ask is “Is this my greatest work?” I believe that to have a great company, you need to overdeliver and perform above expectations. Just like investing, you should go for the long run instead of chasing short-term gains. Going for anything less and taking shortcuts might help you get your product out quicker, but will eventually cause more harm than benefit. —Elle Kaplan, LexION CapitalPhoto by Neil Palmer/CIAT scott gerber Related Posts Leveraging Big Data that Data Websites Should T…center_img These Mistakes Can Derail a Legacy Software Con… Why Your Company’s Tech Transformation Starts W… How AI is Learning to Play with Wordslast_img read more

1985-86SuperSonics-10-3 UPDATE (June 30, 5:38 p.m.): Just as we were publishing this story, it was reported that Minnesota Timberwolves’ point guard Ricky Rubio will be traded to the Utah Jazz for a first-round draft pick. The story has been updated to reflect the trade.It’s a dangerous time of year to be an NBA fan. With free agency officially getting underway on Saturday, and players such as Paul George available via the trade market, you can talk yourself into any number of far-fetched scenarios wherein your favorite team puts just the right pieces together and suddenly becomes a contender. (What if the Spurs added Blake Griffin? What if the Celtics brought in both George and Gordon Hayward?) Sometimes dreams really do come true — like when the Rockets landed Chris Paul this week — but most of the time, you’ll wind up disappointed instead.At FiveThirtyEight, we sometimes play this dangerous game with spreadsheets — specifically, with a spreadsheet that projects team records based on our CARMELO player projections. And there’s one team that really caught our spreadsheet’s eye: the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wolves already made their big move of the summer, acquiring the Bulls’ Jimmy Butler for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and an exchange of first-round draft picks. When we plugged the Wolves’ CARMELO projections into the spreadsheet,1Assuming the Wolves re-sign restricted free agent Shabazz Muhammad but make no other changes. it came up with a projected record of 50-33. 2011-1276ers-8+3 Karl-Anthony Towns37+3.7+0.3 2002-03Nets-7-2 Nemanja Bjelica16-0.7+0.7 The Timberwolves look like contendersCARMELO projections for the 2017-18 Minnesota Timberwolves What could go wrong — or very, very rightIn addition to all the bad things that could happen to the Wolves from a basketball standpoint — injuries, poor chemistry, etc. — they’re also a challenging team to forecast. For the past two seasons, the Wolves have unquestionably had a lot of talent on their roster but have also unquestionably been bad. It isn’t quite as clear why this disconnect occurred. Towns, Wiggins, Rubio and LaVine are all somewhat unusual players, and they each engender disagreements both between the various statistical systems and between stats and “eye test” evaluations. The way RPM and CARMELO looked at the Wolves, Wiggins and especially LaVine were part of the problem last season, while Towns and Rubio were part of the solution. If that assessment was wrong, then jettisoning LaVine could be more costly than the system assumes. And as I mentioned, RPM and CARMELO view Butler as a borderline-superstar player and not “merely” an All-Star; that’s another source of uncertainty.On the flip side, the Timberwolves do have some additional cap space and an opportunity to round out their roster via players such as Taj Gibson, J.J. Redick or Danilo Gallinari. Even modest improvements could go a long way because they don’t have a deep rotation as currently constructed.Or the Wolves could go really bold and package Wiggins for another star. Before landing Butler, the Timberwolves were reportedly in the market for George, for example. But a straight-up trade of Wiggins for George would work under the NBA’s salary cap rules given the Wolves’ extra cap space. It would be a hugely risky move — George will be a free agent next summer and has said he wants to play for the Lakers — but a core of George, Butler and Towns could make the Timberwolves legitimate title contenders. Or at least, the spreadsheet says so. Repacement-level players43-1.7-0.3 PLAYERMIN. PER GAMEOFF. PLUS/MINUSDEF. PLUS/MINUS WINSLOSSES Justin Patton8-2.6+0.4 2010-11Timberwolves-7-2 Team total240+5.4+1.1 1994-95Trail Blazers-8-4 Timberwolves’ projected record49.532.5 ACTUAL – PYTHAGOREAN WINS 1999-2000Nets-70 Jimmy Butler33+3.8+1.0 But that doesn’t account for the significant cap space cleared by the Rubio deal. If Minnesota added free agent point Jeff Teague, for example, their projected record would improve to 53-29. If they signed Kyle Lowry instead, they’d project to finish at 58-24. They could also use the extra cap room to sign a frontcourt player.Projecting the Timberwolves to win 50-something games seems awfully daring, especially for a team that’s burned CARMELO in the past. (CARMELO boldly projected the Wolves to win 46 games last season. Instead, they won 31.) But let me walk you through what the system is “thinking.” The projection reflects a combination of three factors: Butler, the Timberwolves’ youth, and their bad luck last season.Jimmy Butler is really good, and he’s replacing players who were really badCARMELO expects Butler to be worth about 10 wins next season, as compared to a replacement-level player. Oftentimes, replacement level is too low a bar when it comes to assessing an NBA acquisition. If the Celtics added players such as George and Hayward, their minutes would partly come at the expense of other pretty good players such as Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder.2And they also might have to sacrifice players such as Bradley and Crowder as part of trades, or to clear cap room. Thus, their net gain might not be as large as you’d think.But the players the Wolves gave up for Butler weren’t making positive contributions at all, at least according to advanced statistics such as Real Plus-Minus and Box Plus/Minus. (CARMELO uses a combination of these stats to make its projections, weighting RPM more heavily.) LaVine is a good athlete who can create shots but who was woefully inadequate on defense; thus, he was no better than replacement level last season, these metrics figure. And Dunn, like many rookies, was overmatched, playing at a below-replacement-level clip. Thus, Butler is a true 10- or 11-win upgrade, relative to the players Minnesota gave up for him.We should note, however, that where Butler falls on the spectrum between “really good” and “superstar” is a matter of some debate. According to RPM, Butler was the seventh-best player in the NBA last season on a per-possession basis and the third most valuable by wins added above replacement level when also considering his playing time. By a more subjective measure — the views of sportswriters voting for the All-NBA teams — he was somewhere between the 11th- and the 15th-best player in the league, by contrast.Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins should continue to improveThe Wolves’ two former No. 1 overall picks are young — Karl-Anthony Towns turns 22 in November, while Andrew Wiggins will turn 23 in February — and both still have plenty of room to grow, especially on defense. Towns already has a well-rounded offensive game, having developed into a dangerous outside shooter last year (37 percent from 3-point range). But the advanced metrics are somewhat split on his defense, with RPM viewing it as below-average — unusual for a 7-footer3RPM almost always rates players that tall as net-positive defenders. — while stats based on opponents’ field goal percentages suggest that he does a respectable job of rim protection. Towns’s defense tended to fall apart in the fourth quarter last season, and overwork could have been an issue — he was second in the NBA in minutes played, behind Wiggins.Wiggins’s indifferent defense has been a subject of frequent critique at FiveThirtyEight. But the advanced metrics are uniformly in agreement that it’s poor. He allowed an effective field goal percentage of 56 percent last season on shots where he was the nearest defender.4And a maximum of 6 feet from the shooter; we consider shots where no defender was within 6 feet to have been uncontested. NBA shooters also have an effective field goal percentage of 56 percent on uncontested shots, so it’s as though he wasn’t playing defense at all. Because Wiggins is a good athlete with a long wingspan — factors that usually predict good defense — the problems mostly boil down to technique and effort, and those things can sometimes be improved.The Timberwolves were unluckyMinnesota was outscored by only 1.2 points per game last season, and yet they went 31-51. If that seems like a mismatch, it is. A team with that point differential would typically expect to go about 38-44, according to the Pythagorean record as calculated at Basketball-Reference.com. Thus, the Wolves underperformed by seven wins last year, relative to their number of points scored and allowed. That’s because they didn’t play well in crunch time and went 10-18 in games decided by 6 points or fewer.It’s easy to come up with hypotheses for why they played so poorly in these situations. Towns and Wiggins played too many minutes; Wiggins and LaVine took poor shots; Rubio isn’t a scorer, which limited their options in the half-court; they were bad on defense overall, and those differences are magnified in crunch time.The fact is, however, that teams who underperform their Pythagorean records by as much as the Wolves did last season usually don’t have the same problem the next time around, or at least not to the same extent. There had been 19 previous cases since the NBA-ABA merger where a team underperformed its Pythagorean record by seven or more wins. On average, they fell only one win short of their Pythagorean record in the following season. There’s certainly some skill in which teams fare best in crunch time — and Butler, who’s both a good defender and a versatile scorer, can help the Wolves with that — but losing so many games in the clutch is usually partly a matter of bad luck.
