{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Review Of The Day 21st March 2019

Thanks Ed001 as always, I enjoy the morning read. Hope TAA's injury is not too serious and can recover and be fully fit the the run in.

red deano YNWA.

{Ed001's Note - it was just a precaution mate, he could have played but better not to take chances.}

21 Mar 2019 08:22:45
Thank you very much Ed. Have a great day mate!

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate you too.}

21 Mar 2019 10:18:48
Cheers Ed. Just goes to show why internationals are stupid at this (or any) stage of the season, with players pulling out left, right and centre. Let the season finish earlier and then play them all over 6 weeks at the end.

{Ed001's Note - agreed, it ruins the season all this stopping and starting.}

21 Mar 2019 10:32:08
Totally agree redunthewrongway. 7 games to go just wait till the season over. Simples.

21 Mar 2019 13:55:42
Ed. You just made my day with your comment about TAA being withdrawn just for precautionary reasons.

20 Mar 2019 22:23:37
Hiya fellow reds. I'm a long time lurker from Sweden going to Anfield for the first time to see the spuds match. It's my 50th celebration so was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some reds pubs with good Guinness?
Thanks to the eds for a fantastic site.

{Ed033's Note - Surely you must mean Norway :)

When I visited, the Cavern Club was very good but I don't drink guiness so not sure if they served it. Most places in the UK do though so I suspect they will. It's a really unique bar and a must see for tourists in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - Ed025 is the man for this question. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of drinks and which bars serve them.}

21 Mar 2019 06:25:01
Well he's been an Everton fan for 96 years to be fair. That's a long time to be drowning your sorrows.

{Ed001's Note - what did he do for the other 5000 years is what I want to know?}

21 Mar 2019 07:27:28
There is no such thing as a good Guinness anywhere on mainland Britain, you want that get a flight over to Dublin the ay after the game.

21 Mar 2019 07:37:43
I told me he still remembers where he was and what he was doing the day the comet wiped out the dinosaurs. Some things are just unforgettable.

{Ed001's Note - isn't that how he arrived on earth in the first place?}

21 Mar 2019 07:42:47
The Philarmonic is my favourite pub and the favourite of John Lennon's, by all accounts.

21 Mar 2019 10:27:28
So what actually is the difference between this mythical Irish Guinness and the stuff the rest of us are able to drink? Is it still Guinness original over there still while we now get the Guinness draught stuff? Or, is it simply Guinness folklore?

I went to the Netherlands last year and after hearing for years that it’s different Heineken that we get compared to theirs, I found out that is nonsense. Cynicism tells me that its the same with Guinness and that its nought but a clever ‘come to Ireland’ marketing ploy. If someone could elaborate that would be great.

21 Mar 2019 11:17:21
I thought all Guinness was now brewed in Dublin and shipped, thus getting rid of the "crap Guinness" label. I also traveled to the Guinness family home for work and met one of them (forget the name now) .

21 Mar 2019 12:54:00
Guinness doesn’t travel well. Guinness bought in Ireland will be better. I don’t think other beers are affected as much ( apparently! )

21 Mar 2019 13:24:03
Try grab a granny night down the grafton 😂, jokes side o’Neil’s is a good pub always a good atmosphere, anywhere on Matthew street or concert square are usually the best pubs.

21 Mar 2019 13:30:07
I like Peter Kavanagh’s.

21 Mar 2019 13:56:56
Ed001. You’re on form today with your comments. I look forward to Ed025’s comebacks.

{Ed025's Note - ED01 thinks i drink too much g1, but i dont really these days, after the first 10 pints i spill most of it down my shirt mate.. :)

20 Mar 2019 19:49:55
Just had a scroll down but can't find any posts about TAAs injury. Just read he's been sent back to Liverpool from the England squad with a back injury.

Do the Ed's or reds know if it's just a niggle or could it keep him out of the Spurs game?

{Ed002's Note - You will need to wait for the club to assess him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2019 20:25:39
Liverpool and Man City players pulling out, shocking.

{Ed025's Note - daniel sturridge has pulled out of the england squad with injury as well ace...and he was,nt even picked.. :)

20 Mar 2019 20:33:23
Just read that he's been nursing the injury for a while, so can't be too bad?

21 Mar 2019 01:41:06
One word, precaution. OK, that was three words. Now eight. Ten. Wait, I'll come in again.

20 Mar 2019 22:30:42
25 🤣 keep em coming!

{Ed025's Note - will do mate.. :)

21 Mar 2019 07:22:59
😂 @stoneage and 25!

20 Mar 2019 19:45:32
I get the players enjoy playing for their countries but I absolutely detest the International breaks, especially at the business end of the season.

Agree14 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 20:27:16
Me too Drogie.

20 Mar 2019 20:33:42
I was thinking it's an odd time to have qualifiers as clubs are preparing for the money rounds. But I suppose there are few opportunities elsewhere to fit them in.

20 Mar 2019 20:53:35
An international break when Liverpool are top of the league is brilliant.

20 Mar 2019 21:06:54
I’m guessing there’s is far more to it and football doesn’t revolve round the European game, but I personally would rather see a shorter season then an international break at the end where all qualifiers are played within a period of time. Plus players can be judged on a full season rather than a 5 game hot streak.

Like I said, probably be impossible to implement but teams would be happier, international teams can train together for a sustained period and think fans would hold their interest as it doesn’t get in the way of the club game.

21 Mar 2019 21:41:38
I for one, love international football and grew up on it. I loved the qualifying matches for World Cups, AFCON and Euros while emjoying COPA Americas and all the other competitions proper.

Now keep in mind, this was a period where playing these competitions actually meant something. Playing in these competitions actually allowed players to get exposure and big moves to the big European leagues. Now, it is seen as an inconvenience cos well, the European game has taken over.

For me tho, I still love the international game and am happy to watch them when I can. Just watched Holland v Belarus btw where VVD and Gini where on the score sheet in a 4-0 win.

20 Mar 2019 19:20:39
Just seen a clip of Mane when Milner scores that pen against Fulham, the lad drops to his knees and I think thanks God. That is passion, and pride and what it means to those lads. They are trying 100% for them yes but for us too, I can't wait for Spurs on the 31st.

Agree18 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 19:41:22
OP, I saw that as well. That just shows you the limits to which these boys are pushing themselves to brig us the PL title. I have nothing but admiration and respect for these players for what they are trying to do for this great club, along with the manager.

Like I have said before, I am riding these boys and manager till the end. There will be bumps on the road and things won't always go our way BUT I am NOT quitting on these lads, not after what they have done for us this season challenging the best and most expensive team the PL has ever seen. If they can realize our dream of a PL title, it will be stuff I will literally have no words for due mainly to the severe obstacles they would have overcome to get there. YNWA!

20 Mar 2019 20:05:57
Completely agree with that.

21 Mar 2019 01:43:15
Apart from the 'riding these boys' bit.

21 Mar 2019 06:23:55
haha nice one stoneage.

20 Mar 2019 18:53:48
I no ed002 has said that he doesn't believe there is interest from Liverpool in dybala but I wouldn't actually be surprised if that was to change over the coming months. As he can play in place of 1 of the front 3 but also and his preference he could play behind them as a 10 so he won't have concerns about game time neither will front 3.

Also I see migs or karius leaving. Clyne and Moreno. Lallana Sturridge and shaq so there will be room plus money not spent on there wages could go towards dybala, also money from any sales will help with transfer fee.

Just my opinion nothing contradictory or trying to be in the know.

{Ed002's Note - So you expect Dybala to move to provide cover, or do you expect Liverpool will only be playing two in midfield - which is already overrun?}

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 19:09:02
I would say, without the obvious glaring issues of where he fits into the team, how it'd affect us tactically, whether he'd move to be a rotation option, etc etc, that his price alone would be enough to rule us out of the running for signing him.

20 Mar 2019 19:14:31
Anyone who wears a number that is not 1 - 11 should not be labelled a 'rotation' player any longer. If we are to challenge on all fronts its a 'squad game'.

20 Mar 2019 19:47:14
Dybala ain't happening, IMO. Nothing to see here.

20 Mar 2019 20:18:15
Im not saying here that we should try and offer someone of his standard a rotation spot but is that not what city and many others do? Have world class players on the bench to interchange?
Seems normal these days to me.

20 Mar 2019 20:26:23
Ed002, I'm sure the OP doesn't want 2 in midfield, that would be crazy. He must be thinking of playing 3 at the back, you know, cos' we have Big Virg there! :)

21 Mar 2019 05:48:41
Dybala is not a KLopp player. Would be a massive waste of money.
Its better we sign a decent fullback and a wide player before looking to luxury signings who won't even get into the starting 11.

21 Mar 2019 08:02:56
Why do people keep talking about ‘starting 11’?

If you have 4 starting quality forwards fighting for 3 roles and simply rotate to keep them fresh, mathematically that means they would each start 3 out of every 4 matches. If you are competing on all fronts like Liverpool are, then the concept of starting 11 and subs bench doesn’t hold much water anymore.

Just look at our midfield, Klopp rotates it all the time because he can, and the players are not too far off each other in terms of quality. In the forwards however there’s a notable drop from our front 3 to our bench so they are rarely given any rest. We can certainly do with another top winger/ striker.

Compare this to City for example who can start with Sterling, Sane and Aguero and still put Jesus, Mahrez and Bernardo on the bench, we are still behind them in terms of depth. I am also pretty sure the latter three don’t think they are ‘benchwarmers’. they presumably see themselves as integral parts of a larger squad which is what you need to be as successful as City are.

21 Mar 2019 08:55:21
@sgred . Totally agree!

20 Mar 2019 17:28:13
Hi Ed's

Can I ask please what you think we will do with our Centre back area in the summer. Obviously we have 4 at the minute with our best 2 as Virgil and Joe, with the other 2 as back up. Do you think Klopp is happy with the back ups or could we well look to bring another one in with one leaving?

{Ed001's Note - depends on Lovren in the main, whether he is happy to stay or wants to go.}

Agree4 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 17:44:51
Ok mate cheers, he obviously isn’t happy playing as back up and must be pissed he is now behind Matip. I guess the issue is for us finding someone who is happy to be back up and better than the back up we already have.

20 Mar 2019 19:15:29
He’s barely been fit, and not sure we should bring him back in if matip is playing week in week out, and showing signs of improvement.

20 Mar 2019 19:51:00
Matip still gives me fits. Lovs is the better defender and CB and the only reason Matip is playing is cos the two CB's ahead of him (by a large margin, I might add) are injured. Were they not injured, he would have been on the bench, like he had been before they got injured.

Lovs is a good back up BUT I am not sure he would want to be back up so he might leave. And even if he does, we need a CB who is better than Matip and one who can step in for Gomez when unfit so the drop off in performance won't be that steep. We shall see.

21 Mar 2019 12:16:48
I don't think we'll miss Dejan if he leaves. Matip is younger and seems to have put his fitness issues behind him. Let Lovren leave to go be first choice and bring in Dael Fry, who can also play RB (at least under Pulis) .

20 Mar 2019 15:29:19
Horrible news today lads. Balague has come out and said sadio is of no interest to real Madrid. With his accuracy rate it's probably time to say goodbye to mane.

Agree9 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 19:54:00
Bye, Mane. Have a nice trip off to Africa and be sure to be back in good time to smash Spurs next weekend.

20 Mar 2019 20:03:25
Yeah well Madrid better start saving up.

20 Mar 2019 15:17:39
I found this quite interesting. Listen to referee's live mic during A-League game.

Agree10 Disagree1

20 Mar 2019 16:21:09
seen this earlier today. think this would be a fantastic idea to implement, especially with the intoduction of VAR next year, it would clarify why decisions were made. but would highlight how inept the refs in this country are so won't happen! .

20 Mar 2019 17:16:45
Great share Salah! not seen anything like it. Really interesting to get the Ref's actual decision making process, helps that it was a good refereeing performance. Would love to see it introduced on some level but as LFCSTE29 said, I can't see it happening.

20 Mar 2019 18:23:34
I seem to recall something from the very early 90s where David Ellery I think it was, was miked up for a game involving Arsenal. It has been done before, the highlight was when Ellery correctly gave a decision against Arsenal and Tony Adams runs past and clearly shouts "cheat" at him. Ellery takes him to one side and goes full school master on him.

20 Mar 2019 18:59:15
That's right Kirumaking, it was 1989 (or 1990) against Millwall I think mate, it definitely rings a bell, I might be wrong it might've been against another team.

20 Mar 2019 19:13:26
The refs here in Australia are absolutely terrible. We have var and they still make the wrong calls consistently. Its hard to watch because it ruins games every week.

20 Mar 2019 20:04:40
Very soon we’ll be able to read the refs mind and we can prove that they were against us all that time.

20 Mar 2019 20:25:14
That's already here Ron 🤔😉.

20 Mar 2019 21:10:38
This would be great in the game, would stop players abusing officials as they would be caught on the mic.

20 Mar 2019 22:05:51
Brilliant that Salah, the guy was superb in that clip, top refereeing there and the players had total respect for him. I recall the David Ellery one, it was hilarious. Think it was v Millwall and if I’m not mistaken Dennis Wise comes up to Ellery after two players kicked off and Ellery is bollocking them and says “uking send them both off” upon which Ellery and both players just start laughing. priceless.

20 Mar 2019 14:20:15
Was great watching Harrys Heroes the last few nights and the ex Liverpool boys. I thought Robbie came across really well and really deserves his God title. Whilst I still Love Football it has changed so much and its harder for fans to have the relationship and closeness that was there in previous years with their footballing heroes.
