I saw a post earlier about fernabache struggling in the league, and like Monaco in the relegation zone. Seems fairly common nowadays, big teams finishing or performing well below standards - Chelsea a few years back, Madrid to a degree at the moment, Dortmund came lower mid table a few years back didn’t they?
Do you think it’s an increase in player power? Eg a few years back, players under perform and they are out or not played? Now if they don’t like the manager or how things are run, they can almost give up and know they will either get a new manager or a new club.
I feel it is partly to do with bad signings and or managers, but I don’t really recall it happening to the same degree in the previous ten years? Chelsea won the league and with the same squad cane what like tenth?

Hey lads and lasses,

Has anyone had a crack on the football index app?
Is it any good?
Any decent profits?

Let's face it, none of us condone diving and Mo has to learn from the bad press he is getting, but why is he continually vilified when Jamie Vardy throws a forward somersault in pike position in the penalty area and hardly gets a mention? At least Mo was touched, however tenuous. Vardy went out of his way to make contact!

If the media want to call them both cheats then fine but at least have a bit of consistency.

Vardy is not the best striker in Europe and Leicester are not top of the League. That is why they are inconsistent.

One story sells papers, the other is boring. The Media always target people at the top. It's human nature to be jealous of success.

Last season after 23 games- City 62 pts.16 point gap

This season after 23 games Liverpool 60 pts but only a 4 point gap.

So unfair hahaha.

Hi Ed’s and Reds,
Something a little different for silly season. I saw a thread earlier discussing who was better for LFC Torres or Salah. Someone else said they would both be in their dream team.
Based on this I decided to make my dream team of players since I started watching LFC in about 2001. This is not necessarily the best team we could have had since that time, rather my favourite players/ players who have been important in that time.
GK Reina
RB Finnan
CB Carragher
CB Hyypiä
LB Robertson
CDM Alonso
CDM Hamann
RW Salah
CAM Gerrard
LW Luis Garcia
CF Torres

Subs:
GK Allison
DF Agger
DF VVD
M Hendo
M Mane
M Benayoun
F Firmino

Some of these were toss ups, Allison could be world class and go on to be exceptional for us, but for the general level of performance over a long period of time, it has to go to Reina.

Defence almost picks itself, Robertson or Riise was my only tough one as Riise was a big player for us, but I think Robertson is he better player. Finnan is a no brainer so are Carra and Hyypiä. Agger makes the bench because he was quality when fit. VVD could be too early to say, but he has had a major impact since arriving.

CM was a toss up again between Hendo or Hamann, both have been quality for us. If we win something major soon, Hendo will be in. Alonso and Gerrard picked themselves.

Garcia is probably not the most talented player, but he was a real favourite of mine when I was around 10/ 11 years oId. I could have picked Couts or Suarez to play there but both left the club under a cloud/ acted disgracefully so can’t be considered.

Salah and Torres both make the side based on the quantity of goals they scored for us. I was gutted when Torres left because he was my favourite player of the time. I’m too young to have seen Fowler in his prime, he would have been atleast on the bench if I had. The final option for up top is Judas, but I can’t pick him because of his later club choice.

The bench is a very strong one, I could have put Riise on there, but Agger, VVD and Carras versatility mean I don’t need to.

Mane and Firmino make the bench over some others because of how important they are to our current side.

Yossi is another personal favourite of mine and scored some big goals, so has to be in my squad.

Not sure if people will agree or disagree with most of my selections, but I would be interested to hear others opinions on our best players since the turn of the millennium.

For fairness I'm only going to include players who played in 3 different seasons or more. My favourites. Not what I think is best.

Reina
Arnold, Carragher, Agger, Riise
Alonso, Lucas
Kuyt, Gerrard, Firmino
Torres.

21 Jan 2019 15:16:14
Agree with much of all the above, but how about a worst eleven!
Just off the top of my head I'v got.

Mignolet
Kromkamp - Traore - Pellegrino - Konchesky
Poulsen - Biscan
Johanovic - Cheyrou - Diomede
Voronin.

21 Jan 2019 15:37:18
My list:

Alisson (ahead of Clemence because of distribution)
Jones
Hansen
VVD
Tommy Smith
Alonso
Souness
Dalglish
Keegan
Rush
Salah

No Gerrard? He'd be first sub off the bench. I'd play a 4-4-2 with Rush and Salah up front.

Babbel was easily the best rb the club has ever had.

{Ed001's Note - Rob Jones was better.}

20 Jan 2019 20:06:28
Hey Ed001, I don't suppose you did a player profile on O Fenomeno Ronaldo at some point?

{Ed001's Note - not yet, but I have him on the legends list so there will be a profile to accompany that.}

Reading that Mike Ashley is attempting to buy/ invest money in HMV now. This guy seems like a nightmare owner, throw money around but provides next to nothing for transfers or investing in his team.

Shame as Newcastle are a great old club with a very good manager and they really should not be a bottom of the table team without any funding.

Not lfc related but sad to see!

Babel made a half decent start at Fulham, should have scored really if not for a decent save from Hugo, I'd forgot how fast he was, even in his 30s he's still lightening! Interesting to read an interview where he said he was mis managed at Liverpool which stuttered his progression. was this due to Benitez and his tactics, or more the physical demands of the English game? I'd say more the latter, even Though he is a fair old unit.

I’d say it was Benitez’s tactics myself. Apart from half a season in ‘09 he stifled every attacking player we had. His tactics were far too rigid for attacking talent to flourish. It got results to a point but was awful to watch in the main.

Loved Rafa but hated his football it was dire and for the Zonal marking 😭.

20 Jan 2019 23:32:58
I didn’t hate Rafa’s football in Istanbul or the 4-1 at Old Trafford or the 4-0 against Real Madrid.

Rafa is one of the legends 🏆5.

I was the one that scouted Babel at Ajax for LFC, he had an amazing goal scoring record of 1 goal in every 45 minutes as he used to come off the bench a lot for Ajax and score. In my mind Babel should have played more central with Stevie G feeding him and he would have been a perfect foil for Torres. Instead he was deployed as a winger and the rest is history.

I see a lot of people asking what's the best site for watching football on phones and tablets, the best one out there is an app called red glory on the apps store. I know it was set up by utd supporters but the quality and speed of the streaming is second to none, it's absolutely brilliant. Have watched at least 4 liverpool games this season and no lagging or stopping check it out.

What happened too Patrick van anholt the salah shut out machine, maybe that's a valuable lesson learnt not too run ya mouth before a game.
