C Mon Sturridge, this is the chance for showing your world class. Believe.

Agree7 Disagree1

18 Sep 2018 20:59:58
I wjinaldum for love
But I won't do that!

18 Sep 2018 22:04:36
What a game! What a way to win. I thought salah's goal should have stood but.
I tell you what, what a squad we have. Sturridge comes in for Bobby and was really good, worked hard, played on the wing, got the ball on target 3 times. Then we have Shaqiri to come on and he looked lively.

The more I watch neymar the less I think of him as a player. Technically brilliant and would be wicked in 5 a side. But this is football, a game of strategy and tactics. Trent was open EVERY time. What sort of player refuses to defend? I wouldn't swap him for any of our forwards, including Danny Sturridge.

18 Sep 2018 22:12:22
Divemar was awful.

{Ed0333's Note - I cant believe he just shirked a tackle at the end. It was just arrogance of the highest level. How his PSG teammates tolerate him I have no idea.

18 Sep 2018 22:17:44
Agreed Ed333, he's just unbelievably annoying, I can't bloody stand him.

{Ed0333's Note - I really don’t understand how he’s is treated like royalty mate. Im incredulous no ones given him a clip round the earole.

18 Sep 2018 22:20:15
Best bit of the game was late in the first half when Mane squared him up after a corner and jinked past him like a dad messing about in the park with his 3 year old kid.

Look, I know the guy's not a defender and Mane is the easiest player to stop, but it looked so effortless. I've seen U10s make better efforts to stop a cross.

18 Sep 2018 22:20:16
I saw that too Ed. He just threw his hands in the air and couldn't be bothered. The commentators kept insisting he should've been pulled off.

18 Sep 2018 22:18:11
I love Mbappe as a player but Robertson was always an option on the left as well. I think PSG wanted their pace on the counter and keep them higher up the pitch. Their biggest problem to me was shoehorning di maria centrally agianst us. That sort of thing works when you're playing an inferior side that wants soak up pressure, but I thought he was a ghost and really hurt them.

18 Sep 2018 22:31:11
I remember a certain point when the commentary mentioned that Klopp would swap one of our front three if maybe Neymar became available.

Why the f*ck would he do that, everytime he lost the ball that was it. Disgrace of a player. Not in it for the team, only it for himself.

18 Sep 2018 22:52:50
I thought barcelona were mad for selling him and it was just too good an offer to refuse. But if I were a manager I would hate to have him in my team. Horrible little man, spoilt brat and is not even in the league below the one he thinks he is in. I hope to god he is playing next time we play Paris. We always had an attacking outlet. It was too easy. Of course they have impact players who can hurt you on the break but we should have won 5 1.

18 Sep 2018 23:12:05
He is a rich mans Balotelli for me, has all the talent needed to be an incredible player but is more bothered about his image and being the main man. IF they actually put some effort in they may of got something from the game, but it is just a squad of inflated egos that need to realise that with talent needs the right attitude or you are going nowhere fast.

I think Mbappe is the star of that squad, but a lot should be said about the defence that Neymar didn’t have an opportunity to con the ref.

18 Sep 2018 23:14:43
There was only one real Brazilian forward on that pitch and like everyone has stated he was missing for most of the match. Untill he came on for us - FIRMINOOOOO!

18 Sep 2018 23:49:26
Took my nephew to old Trafford for the Olympic semi final and spent the whole 2 hour drive to the match, telling him you are about to watch a special player in the making. He was rubbish and didn’t do anything special, lazy then also.

18 Sep 2018 23:59:21
I thought Shaqiri brought a lot of energy when he came on. That was great when it happened.

I'm really happy for Sturridge.

I thought TAA had a very good game. He was very active.

Bobby Firmino. That is all.

I thought Gomez looked pretty composed and VVD was commanding in the air.

I also thought Salah looked more active, especially in the second half. Maybe active isn't the word, but more aggressive perhaps. I liked seeing that.

I know I'm leaving guys out. Fun game overall.

19 Sep 2018 00:17:37
How about our full backs? Shutting down Neymar and Mbappé like they've done nothing else. So impressive by TAA and Robbo, truly world class defending. They were helped by the tireless running from Milner-Hendo-Gini for sure, but what a solid display from them.

19 Sep 2018 00:16:18
Milner was brilliant. Ed01 said after the spurs game what a season milly is having. Totally right. He is playing better than I've ever seen him in his 16 years.
Hendo got stuck in all over the midfield. I'm always impressed with the way he controls the ball with his first touch and gini was all over the park.

Fantastic performance. Made one of the best teams in Europe look average. Without mbappe they would have been easily dispatched.

19 Sep 2018 07:35:28
The commentators should know better random. There no place for insisting such behaviour should occur in today's society.

19 Sep 2018 08:30:13
They said something along the lines off, "Wonder if Tuchel has the balls to hook Neymar. Doubt it though. "

19 Sep 2018 08:52:43
I imagine his team mates tolerate him in the same way that many of us tolerate some of our more irritating colleges - think of the money.

18 Sep 2018 13:40:15
These next three weeks or so are possibly the biggest the club has had in a generation in respect of games and opposition. In that time period they have PSG (h) Napolo (a) in the CL. Southampton (h) Chelsea (a) Man City (h) in the PL and Chelsea (h) in the leauge cup. If and it is a huge if the club can go undefeated that is a statement that no one can ignore. It's a hugely important run of games with top top opposition.

Agree4 Disagree3

18 Sep 2018 15:03:43
Tough games, I think we may drop points at napoli and Chelsea. Reckon we will take Chelsea at home and city. And of course Paris tonight.

18 Sep 2018 16:27:33
Fear no team :) we can take them ALL. Seriously though, imagine if we did? it'd hardly be a surprise, look at how far we've come the past year, if we won all of them fixtures we'd all be delighted of course but it wouldn't be shocking.

18 Sep 2018 17:31:22
We have the team to win every single game. 🤞🏼.

18 Sep 2018 17:52:45
I agree we do have the team to win them all. Napoli are tough at home, I would be okay with a draw. Chelsea is tough as well. I can see us winning every home game.

It'll be nice going into the utd games as favourites.

18 Sep 2018 18:06:09
Yeah I must admit, the main one I'm concerned about is Napoli away but I still think we can do them, not steam roll them but it's certainly doable.

18 Sep 2018 18:54:44
It is salah, I'm really buzzing for the game tonight. Can't wait.

Good luck to Danny sturridge. We still love you Dan!

18 Sep 2018 19:42:22
You and me both Mane, very excited about this game. I hope Sturridge can impress tonight, would love to see him get a couple.

18 Sep 2018 12:08:00
Anyone else enjoying the feeling that Liverpool football club are truly back in the big time? Loving it. Haven't felt this positive since the early 90s.

Agree15 Disagree0

18 Sep 2018 16:51:27
You mean like "this will be our season" feeling?

18 Sep 2018 17:40:14
No dude he means "this is our season"

There's no hope. We're now a trully top team, they just have to get a trophy to be taken as serious as they are.

18 Sep 2018 17:54:13
I want the league title. I really think it will open the flood gates.

19 Sep 2018 07:26:00
Whether we win or not this year, it’s still been a massive step forward to get the squad to where it is now, we are right in the mix at the top of world club football again and fearing for no-one. It’s a sight to behold and I’m loving it.

18 Sep 2018 11:30:25
A question for the ed’s and everyone else.

Which player could have gone on to be really special if it wasn’t for injuries, mine would be Gazza, he had a good career but could of been really special if he hadn’t wrecked his knee.

I have heard city fans talk about Paul Lake as well.


Andy O.

{Ed002's Note - Just Fontaine.}

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Sep 2018 12:02:48
The real Ronaldo!

18 Sep 2018 12:06:29
Jamie redknapp. Robbie fowler and even Micheal Owen. All great players but could and should have reached the next level.

I really think redknapp would have been very special with a few more tough seasons under his belt.

18 Sep 2018 12:06:39
Honorouble mentions to Jamie Redknapp and Darren Anderton, but the absolute standout is Rob Jones.

Gary Neville wouldn’t have had the England career he had (and probably not even the punditry role as his profile wouldn’t have been as high) if Jones hadn’t had career ending injuries. Such a shame.

18 Sep 2018 12:08:37
Danny Sturridge? Was scoring bags of goals before all the injuries hit. Widely regarded as England’s top striker and best finisher till it all went wrong.

18 Sep 2018 12:13:05
Harry Kewell.

18 Sep 2018 12:25:29
Rob Jones.

18 Sep 2018 13:00:56
I would have liked to have seen how good Michael Johnson from City could have been.

18 Sep 2018 13:23:54
From my lifetime it's Fowler by a mile, I know there are perhaps better choices like Jones but they predate me.

Although Gareth Bale is a good shout to me - hardly ruined his career at all but his constant low/ mid level injuries across his career stunted him to some extent and I'd love to know if without them he'd have challenged the Messi/ Ronaldo lockdown.

18 Sep 2018 15:48:41
Nii Lamptey.

18 Sep 2018 15:49:27
Great question, despite his brilliance, I think van baston could have been truly great if he’d had fewer injuries imo.

18 Sep 2018 17:30:18
Van Persie only managed to stay injury free at the end of his career. He was absolutely lethal once he got over the constant injuries too.

18 Sep 2018 18:08:31
For Liverpool it would be Fabio Aurelio. He had all the attributes to make a great player if only they could have got him off the treatment table.

18 Sep 2018 18:24:20
Gianluigi Lentini. He was absolutely amazing then had a really bad car crash when he was 24. He was just never the same afterwards.

At the time, he was the world's most expensive player when he moved from Torino to AC Milan.

18 Sep 2018 19:11:37
Djibril Cisse stands out from my twenty years.

19 Sep 2018 00:12:23
Good call on Gianluigi Lentini EP.

19 Sep 2018 02:54:30
Adriano. Granted there were other problems but I think it was a bad injury which started it. The man seemed like a beast tho.

18 Sep 2018 11:36:43
Stephen Darby, a liverpool academy graduate, has just been forced to retire from football after being diagnosed with motor neurone disease. Life changing diseases like this truly can affect anyone.

You’ll never walk alone stephen.

18 Sep 2018 11:53:59
Absolutely terrible news, YNWA lad.

18 Sep 2018 13:27:12
Awful for the guy, YNWA.

18 Sep 2018 16:58:57
Terrible news YNWA mate 🙏.

18 Sep 2018 18:05:53
YNWA Stephen, keep up the good fight.

18 Sep 2018 18:16:29
Terrible news for him and his family. Just makes you think that every day you wake up healthy and happy that you've won the lottery. Nothing else really matters.

18 Sep 2018 21:03:35
TIR, you hit the nail on the head there mate!

18 Sep 2018 10:58:07
Can't wait for this match later now

I feel if firmino is fit where favourites, with out him closing down it could be disjointed and against high a quality side like PSG there can't be any passenger's.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Sep 2018 12:09:02
I trust sturridge against the better sides that like to attack.

18 Sep 2018 10:56:44
Oh my I just can't wait for tonight! Predictions? I aren't going to predict a score with this one (I always get them bloody wrong lol) but what I will say is I'm confident we'll win tonight! Nerves don't come into it with this game because I think we have enough to give them a real shock! Bring them on!

Agree8 Disagree0

18 Sep 2018 11:30:16
I agree with myself wholeheartedly! Back from honeymoon via a 39 hour non stop trek across Europe. Completely out of touch with the world, missed spurs and forgot about tonight. Cheers for the wonderful reminder Salah, and I do hope you are doing well. For the fans traveling there, ba safe guys, amazing city (which hates anyone who doesn’t speak fluent French as I was quickly reminded of after half a decade away) but sadly at the moment it’s reminiscent of visiting Belfast during the troubles. That said there is a major presence of police, and army everywhere and obviously it’s the absolute minority ruining another culture’s name but there were 3 separate “incidents” in the short period involving tourists while we were there, so just be a little vigilant and enjoy the match. As for Rome, well proudly declaring that I was a Liverpool fan was met with some interesting reactions.

18 Sep 2018 11:32:28
Of course, if you are in Paris tonight, find a good pub to watch it cos I just saw that it’s in anfield. 39 hours traveling folks.

{Ed002's Note - These are Liverpool supporters - there will no doubt be plenty in Paris tonight on their way back from the Champions League final in Russia.}

18 Sep 2018 11:53:03
That’s true ed, we do get lost easily. It’s a total conspiracy!

18 Sep 2018 11:58:23
Cheers aoe, hope you had a great honeymoon :) . Glad to see you back mate!

18 Sep 2018 13:01:28
I think we’ll win tonight Salah. It’ll be a big test but Anfield will be rockin. Tonight could be the night the front 3 start to really click. 3-0.

18 Sep 2018 12:50:08
I’m going to try and post a little more often. The last few months have been really busy getting my company up off the ground. I usually get some time to read the posts but when I start posting I get waaaaaay too invested. I have to find the happy medium to be honest. I have a big book launch in the next two weeks and I’m working a convention next month so I’m flat out. It’s worth it though. While I’m nowhere near making any real money, my debut novel has become a bestseller in a few fantasy categories in the us and uk. With a bit of luck, my second book which is a satirical take on fake news and hailed as “a fantastic read” (by my mom) is projected to go number 1. Not actually kidding. That said, I’ll need about 10 books out in the market before I’m making enough to support my lollipop addiction and actually afford a house. To all the budding authors on this site, I’ll be able to hand out pretty helpful info on the publishing world and how to actually grind out a living (without selling delicious numbers like George rr Martin, or jk Rowling, ) at some point next year for those interested. As of now, while I’d love to give details and give myself a plug, it’s just not worth the trolls getting on and hammering a few one stars for a laugh and jeaporadise everything me and my wife have built so far. There are definitely a few people on the site I’d love to pass on a copy to or at least show that I’m not actually a compulsive liar, yourself included, maybe at some point we can sort something out. Sorry for the self praising rambling.

{Ed001's Note - no harm in self promotion mate, sometimes you have to if you are going to get anywhere.}

18 Sep 2018 13:30:47
Wow wee, aoe. Congratulations and good luck. I’m not going to pretend that I am up to any standards for publishing yet - I’ve not even got half way to finishing my first book, but I would love to make a living as an author at some point so I admire your efforts to get feet on the ladder. If you can point a way to being able to get my hands on a copy somehow (I will pay), I’d be very keen to give it a read.

As for score tonight, 3-0. Salah, Milner (pen), Mane. Job done.

18 Sep 2018 13:32:46
aoe - love a fantasy book and if you ever feel solid enough to give out it's name I'd love to read it (although I would never accept a free copy, I'm delighted to pay artists when I want to enjoy their creations)

18 Sep 2018 16:26:12
I'd also be more then happy to purchase one aoe, sounds exciting for you mate so I'm sure many people here would be more than willing to support you with this.

Good luck with this aoe, I sincerely wish you all the best with it.

18 Sep 2018 17:06:17
AOE, I'm interested in your book, I'm more than happy to help support you.

18 Sep 2018 17:51:50
Congrats aoe, love a good fantasy or satire myself. Let me know how I could get a copy and I certainly want to pay for it. Cheers!

18 Sep 2018 18:31:02
Congratulations aoe. I'd love to get my missus a copy as she's into the fantasy genre, so I'd love to buy one. Not for myself though, as I can't read.

Thanks Ed good update. Callumn with a silent N, class that is, exotic! Nice Kante story. Can’t help but really like that guy.

{Ed001's Note - I do wonder if it was a mistake, I know of quite a few people who had names that were simply registrar errors.

I love Kante - nice lad, wonderful player and so unassuming.}

18 Sep 2018 07:50:48
Morning all.
I have to mention Kevin Beattie, who passed away yesterday.
What a player he was.
Geoff Twentyman sure knew how to spot ‘em.

{Ed001's Note - oh damn, sorry I forgot to put that in as I was rushing at the end and meant to put it as the last entry. Wasn't it Bobby Robson who called Beattie the best English player he ever worked with?}

18 Sep 2018 08:04:11
Thanks Ed, crazy that ref raucous in Ghana.

{Ed001's Note - it is what happens in poor countries when people have power, they sell it to look after their families' futures.}

18 Sep 2018 08:25:01
Cheers Ed, glad to see you survived yesterday ;) lol have a good day mate!

{Ed001's Note - only just mate, only just.}

18 Sep 2018 08:26:09
He did apparently Ed001 yes.
There was the famous mix up after Beattie had spent a week’s trial at Melwood, when he was due to sign for Liverpool.
He was actually chosen to play in Shankly’s testimonial match and was told by the great man “Aye son, I’ve only made a few mistakes in my life, but (missing) you were one of the biggest”.
Beattie and Keegan had some right ding dong battles, about evens maybe as well.
Great player and still highly thought of in Carlisle and Ipswich.

{Ed001's Note - it is a sad loss.}

18 Sep 2018 10:43:36
Thanks Ed, great Kante story. Have a great day.

{Ed001's Note - you too mate.}

18 Sep 2018 11:11:48
Why does everyone’s computers/ phones keep autocorrecting Milner to Kante? 😏.

18 Sep 2018 11:29:09
Autumn has an N at the end. It could be an error, but I think it is still just parents trying to be modern and original while making everybody else (by which I mean me) think they’re just dicky bows.

Got to love Kante, though. Just why does he have to play for that lot?

5 wins on the bounce whilst playing in 2nd gear. Gomez getting a shot at CB, Alisson and VVD transforming the backline, Milner having a purple patch, Gini looking good at no6, Fabinho not yet blooded, Keita still finding his feet and PSG Chelseax2 Napoli and City coming up next. What a time to be alive!

. meanwhile Harry has started his “we need a metronome” campaign again.

Agree9 Disagree0

17 Sep 2018 22:20:48
It will sure be interesting to see where we are in relation to the big boys tomorrow night.
PSG will be the best team we’ve faced since Real, and they’re ambitious and confident enough to come to Anfield and have a go.
If they come to play, there’s going to be goals.

17 Sep 2018 23:55:56
no verrati is a big plus. they're a little light in the midfield. I expect LFC to play well. Wouldn't shock me at all if we are on the front foot most of the night.

18 Sep 2018 08:29:28
Liverpool at anfield will always be in the front foot. It's wether psg want to go toe to toe with us or try and save abit of dignity and not get embarrassed.

Stop living in the past, we are now the second best team for the time being in both Europe and the prem. Simple.

Have to let real and city hold both those first titles as they won th3 titles, but let's see where we are at come the end of the season!

18 Sep 2018 10:13:17
Stop living in the past, Kloppsboss, we are currently two points above Man City. Last season is over.

18 Sep 2018 17:32:51
Just to point out kloppsboss if city are the best team in the prem, then surely that makes us 3rd best team in Europe? 😉.

18 Sep 2018 20:51:38
Living in the past as in fans, not club.

How we are use to having to act or think.

We are now actually a bigger team than our ego or in fact equal to it.

How many times have we been we will win because of the badge no matter wether are team was bad. No we actually have the team fit for the badge and we can mouth off to anyone and go and back it up without a worry.
