2018 - A plan

Beat Burnley tonight
Beat Bournmouth in the early game.
1 Point clear at the top.

City then have to go to the bridge and play Chelsea. They will lose that.

We play United at home at the best possible time to face them. They are in chaos and trash.

A run of away games for City
A run of home games for us.

We could conceivably be ahead of them or at least on the same points on the 31st.

January 1st - We play City.

If we win that, we could be in store for one hell of a 2019.

As much as we look at Citys form and fear the worst, they must look at their 2018 fixtures and be concerned that there are clear points there to drop.

Let's not automatically fear the worst. It is equally possible that we are 3/ 4/ 5/ 6 points clear on the 2nd of Jan. We are still very much in this.

Agree7 Disagree3

05 Dec 2018 13:17:09
I wish i thought like this. But unfortunately polar opposite opinions.
By the time mentioned i feel we could be 6 or more points behind. Come the city game we be lucky to get a draw. And tgen city uncathable by then.
Still have a feeling Arsenal will make a charge up the table.

05 Dec 2018 13:17:19
Look man just understand what ed01,ed333,klopp, vvd, etc say. We SHOULD NOT LOOK AT CITY. WE SHOULD LOOK AT US ND NLY US. When we lost it last time 13/ 14 we lost due to us nly not due to city. so please forget about city and look at us. If they drop points well good if they don't then what have we to loose? we are Liverpool fans, we love our club more than anything in our worlds. Everyone has their own way of supporting but please don't giv a damn about other clubs.

But P. S. : I do hope we thrash united and moaninho gets d sack


05 Dec 2018 13:18:59
We shouldn't take wins for granted.

Let's just concentrate on the Burnley game and take things 1 game at a time.

Why will City definitley lose to Chelsea at Stamford bridge? They didn't last year and are a much better team than Chelsea.

Why will we definitely beat United in the league? we haven't done that in 4 years.

Id love nothing more than to see it happen but let's focus on Burnley first and worry about everything else as it comes.

05 Dec 2018 13:20:26
I would argue that it is not quite equally possible given that Citeh have played 100 point football for 60 odd games. Yes we are still in it but to be fair, Lord Guardiola makes it almost impossible to rest players because of the pace that his charges set. Ultimately, I can see us picking up more injuries and getting more tired than them by Jan 3rd. I would be inclined to think that the race finishes on Jan 3rd.

05 Dec 2018 13:34:17
January 3rd we play city I think but yes mate exactly, great post, about time we see more posts like this! Come the 3rd we'll be top, no doubt and we'll remain top as well.

05 Dec 2018 13:55:42
Lol livebird, we don't want Jose to get the tin tack mate, the longer he's there the better.

05 Dec 2018 14:04:42
Sorry, it’s the 3rd

I think it’s natural to look at your direct competition and it’s only what we have been all doing every season forever. What is different is looking at it with a pure defeatist attitude. It could go one way or the other this month and as long as we have a chance, I’ll be looking on the positive but I’ll still have City in my sights and thoughts all the way.

05 Dec 2018 14:06:27
Walter do you happen to work as a risk assessor? Or in a health and safety department? I think there is definitely a career in being a miserable sod somewhere that you’re missing out on, if not.

05 Dec 2018 14:23:24
Performances matter, we were lucky enough against Everton to get the 3 points, and not be 4 points behind.
I would think City at home are favourites against any team in the world, RM/ Barca included. I would expect them to at least beat us on the 3rd, maybe they drop points elsewhere. I would say just chill, there's a long season to go!

05 Dec 2018 20:30:30
Dont forget that we play Wolves in the FA Cup, thank you FA, just 3 days after the City game, so lots of big games coming up, I can see why Klopp is giving some players a rest tonight, we could see more of Matip if Gomez is out for a while . going to be hard to get 3 points tonight, Burnley trying hard .

05 Dec 2018 20:31:33
It’s best to take it one game at a time and see where you are at the end of the season, we are in a good position for a title race though.

05 Dec 2018 20:32:35
your'e right - key is winning these 2 away games this week
Keep the pressure on the Citeh-
I fancy us beating anyone at fortress Anfield.
City away then will be huge.

05 Dec 2018 20:34:37
You just jinxed it now we will lose the game today.

05 Dec 2018 23:29:17
I could be wrong but didn't we score more points than city post Xmas last season and we're within two this season, not bad if true.

Wilfried Zaha

05 Dec 2018 10:14:08
{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new player profile about, Wilfried Zaha

Agree1 Disagree2

05 Dec 2018 11:21:45
I genuinely think Zaha is in the wrong sport Ed. He should do synchronised diving with Tom Daley.

{Ed001's Note - harsh but true.}

05 Dec 2018 12:24:15
imagine the medal haul he would have collected by now.
while he's at it, bring along Neymar, Richardlison, Mbappe, Thiago.
probably the most competitive generation of male divers the world has ever witnessed.

{Ed001's Note - you forgot about the Spanish king of diving, Sergio Busquets.}

05 Dec 2018 13:18:11
Aaaa. (crashes)
Damm you Busquets!

05 Dec 2018 15:53:08
Is there a sport that involves both diving and being a thug? Sign up Ramos for that if you can think of one.

WWE maybe?

05 Dec 2018 16:57:27
A very accurate profile that Ed, I've never rated the lad. I just thought then, really annoying you know, the other night I thought of a player I was going to request you do to a profile on but completely forgot who it was! No doubt it'll come to me, anyway cheers mate, quality as always.

{Ed001's Note - that is so frustrating when you know something is there but can't quite remember it.}

hahahaha, that one's even better than the Jordan one below it, nice one!

05 Dec 2018 08:37:42
I am not saying that Bobby Duncan is the second coming but things about his game don't half remind me of Fowler.

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Dec 2018 08:46:20
He scored 4 on Saturday didn't he? I haven't seen him play but going on his goals/ assists things are going well for him. Fingers crossed for the lad.

05 Dec 2018 12:25:57
i terms of the way they move and the type of goals scored, i thought Kristian Nemeth might have become the next Fowler. didn't see enough of him to know how good he really was but the resemblance in body shape was uncannot.

05 Dec 2018 13:18:57
Bobby duncan? u wait bobby firmino will score that much against manu this year! watch this speace😍😜😜.

05 Dec 2018 08:07:43
Can we just stop with all this defeatist bullsh@t about city please? It’s boring and pathetic.

We’ve had a fantastic start to the league campaign, I’m sure no one could have asked for better (realistically anyway) . Let’s support the lads and see where the chips fall yes? If you can’t enjoy an undefeated start after 14 games and 11 of those wins, you’ll never be satisfied.

{Ed025's Note - well said 87, liverpool need to concentrate on themselves and not get sidetracked by what city are doing..

Agree13 Disagree8

05 Dec 2018 08:19:16
Exactly, spot on 87 mate.

05 Dec 2018 08:33:47
Whilst I agree our campaign start have been nothing short of phenomenal, it is only natural to see how your main rivals are doing. It's hardly pathetic or boring, it's just what most fans do, especially when we are desperate to win the League. Surely you wanted Watford to win last night?

05 Dec 2018 09:04:29
Of course I wanted Watford to win. Did I expect them to? Of course not.

It is pathetic for so many post defeatist things and wallow in self pity. Too many people on here look have thrown in the towel when TWENTY FOUR GAMES left to play for.

05 Dec 2018 09:48:47
Yeah, we're still in the first half of the season and already people have given up even though one single game can be the difference between us being 2nd and 1st (should we win tonight) . It's not over until it's over, I fully expect the results to go our way no matter who we play, who cares what City does, we need to concentrate on getting behind our team instead of worrying about another.

There's far too much talk about how untouchable City are right now, what about us? we're also untouchable but there's too much paranoia going on at the moment. Why? I have no idea. It seems there's far too many people who are only happy when they are moaning, we have quite a lot to be excited about, we should be proud of how the team are doing results wise, but as 87 says, many people are throwing in the towel ALREADY! . Every single time City win a game it's bloody guaranteed on here there will be a post saying how good they look and how we have no chance etc etc, it's quite frustrating after god knows how many weeks of it.

I'll think more about City when we play them on the 3rd, until then we should be concentrating on the teams we play next.

05 Dec 2018 09:51:10
Bang on 87. Yes City are good but so are we. Who’s to say they haven’t peaked too early and we’re not going to run away with it in the second half of the season?
We just don’t know so like you say all we can do is support the lads and enjoy the ride.
It makes me laugh how last season we weren’t going to win anything under Klopp as he has no idea how to set up defensively. Now we have easily the best defence in the league he’s not gung ho enough. Some people will just never be satisfied.

05 Dec 2018 10:52:55
87 Red, Salah, Bobby’s Blinders - good for you guys, well said. If we beat Burnley and Bournemouth, we will be 1 point above City before they play Chelsea at the Bridge. That’s all we can do, concentrate on winning our games, build the pressure and let City worry about us. Just as a lot of our supporters are getting wound up about City not dropping points, I am sure City and their supporters must be thinking ‘What do we have to do to shake this lot off? ’.

05 Dec 2018 11:59:33
Watch them drop points at the bridge.

05 Dec 2018 12:06:20
I am in the positive camp, just saying, but it is still fine for people extoll the virtues of what may turn out to be possibly the most dominant team in Premier League history. Yes there are 24 games to go, and 24 matches to turn them over, but there are also 24 matches for them to pull away and exert their power.

It’s perfectly ok to be a slight bit dismayed at making such a good start and still being second. It’s also fine to be worried that they are just showing the same form of last season with all the same consistencies, while this is new found consistency from us that we have no way to tell how long it lasts. The thought of any team reaching 100 points is crazy, let alone having to reach it to win the league. That’s unfathomable.

Equally, they have been playing with such focus and intensity over the last season and a half that it may catch up with them just as we find our groove and we pick their pockets or even win comfortably as they tail off.

What I’m saying is we are looking very good and very capable of winning, more so than ever in my lifetime as a supporter. I firmly believe we can and in any other era of Premier League football I think this team definitely would. It’s just typical that a country owns a team down the road and has spent a decade building a machine fit for success at the same time as we hit our peak.

05 Dec 2018 12:28:27
I can’t disagree with what you’ve said there redinthewrongway. I just don’t think that people giving up all hope does anything to strengthen our cause.

IF city do 100 points again and we miss out then you just have to applaud that and not throw our toys out of the pram with respect to our own lads.

05 Dec 2018 13:46:28
No, spot on there mate. Anyone who can’t be positive about our chances now never will be and you just got to wonder what’s the point in being a supporter in the first place, if that's the case.

It really is an exciting time to be supporter of the club, but that lot down the road are doing their best to crash the party. If I were a neutral i’d be loving it. There hasn’t been a proper title race since 2013/ 14 that went down to the last day so at the very least, let's hope that’s the case (though obviously victory by April would be lovely) .

05 Dec 2018 16:59:10
LFC8, I think so too, I reckon Chelsea will beat them.

05 Dec 2018 07:43:30
Morning Ed, thank you very much mate hope you have a good day, roll on tonight!

{Ed001's Note - you too mate, fingers crossed for the right result!}

05 Dec 2018 08:35:32
I have no doubt we'll get the desired result Ed, I think we'll hammer them mate. I see it being a cricket score tonight but as always a simple 1-0 would do me as long as we get them three points then I'm happy. I really want to see Origi get a start tonight, see what else he has up his sleeve.

05 Dec 2018 08:37:41
Me too, I want to see Origi started and Firmino dropped/ rested.

05 Dec 2018 05:28:11
2016: Mane, 90+4

2018: Origi, 90+6

2020: Moreno, 90+8

2022: 5-year-old Lio Gerrard, 90+10.

2024: The earth swallows the ball. In the stadium, a volcano erupts, consuming all in its blaze. The ball shoots in the sky and gracefully lands beyond Pickford’s ashen body, 90+12.

Not mine just read it somewhere.

Agree7 Disagree0

04 Dec 2018 21:37:15
Changed whole back 4,rested sterling and aguero whilst their player of last season KDB is injured . Still strolling in all their games . this is what Liverpool are up against this absolute juggernaut.

Agree7 Disagree8

04 Dec 2018 22:23:00
Very nearly threw it away though. This is not over, even City will drop points and we have to be there when they do.

04 Dec 2018 22:24:10
It’s going to take 100 points to win the league this year.

04 Dec 2018 22:29:53
*in excess of 100 points* even.

04 Dec 2018 22:57:19
Either ourselves or City are going to obliterate the record for most points scored by a runner up in the PL this season.

Arsenal or Chelsea could set a record for 3rd too.

04 Dec 2018 23:00:32
Yes Juicer, but remember Klopp still has to win the league this season or else he’s a complete failure and should go back to Germany with his tail firmly between his legs.

{Ed025's Note - love it mate..

04 Dec 2018 23:07:24
OP IMO, I disagree. If people call that strolling thru a game then you prolly want to rethink what that word actually means. Our 4-0 win over WH on the opening day, was a stroll cos we didn't have to break a sweat really. That was not the case here, I'm sorry.

IMO, Watford actually worse than they did against us and created more chances against City than they did against us. City were very casual in their play and lacked any type of intensity and maybe the changes may have had something to do with that. The openings were there for Watford to exploit but simply lacked the quality to punish them on the counter.

There is a reason Pep was losing whatever hair he had left on his head with City's wastefulness up top, in possession and lack of energy. Watford could easily have gotten a point at the end not cos they were brilliant BUT cos City were frankly, disinterested. They had better be up for it vs Chealsea otherwise they have another thing coming.

Now will they win the PL regardless? Prolly. Do we need 100 points to win at least? Perhaps but let's not make them out like what they were not at least in this game cos they did not "stroll" it by any means, IMO.

04 Dec 2018 23:49:18
City different class In my eyes. Their depth in the front 3 is incredible. Only player they may miss is of Fernandinho picked up a knock, as I don’t see another similar type player. Doubt it will affect them though!

04 Dec 2018 23:53:30
Klopps a gonner in my opinion. Only way he stays is if we win something. Just can't see us getting any silverware.

05 Dec 2018 01:14:28
Klopp’s going nowhere regardless of what happens because sensible people are running the club. Which superstar DJ is going to get a better tune out of this bunch, may I ask?

{Ed0333's Note - Matador!

05 Dec 2018 04:15:14
Look how far the club has come since Klopp joined - we went from being hammered by Stoke to having played 3 cup finals and now second place in the league. A win is certainly going to happen eventually, and anyone that thinks he should be fired even if he doesn’t win a trophy this year is nuts.

Measuring success by continuous improvement of the team is a far better route to long term succes. as Man Utd found out by showing patience with Fergie. By comparison Mourinho won cups when he first joined Man Utd but look where they are now.

05 Dec 2018 05:36:41
Klopp’s reached second place and won zero trophies just the same as Brendon Rogers and he got the flick. I like Klopps personality and the swashbuckling football he often has us playing but, if success is judged on trophies alone, he hasn't improved us.
Id hate to see Klopp go and can't think of anyone to replace him either. he's probably our very best shot right now but im hoping he can go one better than his predecessor this season and bring home some silverware.

05 Dec 2018 06:09:44
Red lorry i was just about to post similar to in defence of my previous statement.

{Ed001's Note - it is not a defence as it ignores the fact that Rodgers was taking the club backwards when he got booted, he never got booted with the team in second place or in contention in the Champions League.}

05 Dec 2018 06:34:27
Well I’ve read some ridiculous stuff in my time but wow. Walter out of curiosity, is Christmas your worst time of year? Because you’re playing the grinch really well!

05 Dec 2018 06:33:20
Klopps the best man for the job and that's as simple as it gets for me. Look at the team we have now compared to what we had with Rodgers, look at how we're playing, it's a no brainer. Walter, you want rid of Klopp, who would you replace him with?

04 Dec 2018 23:29:42
Just checked and Leicester won the league with 81 points.
City have Everton at home in a couple of weeks, you couldn’t have a word with your man Jordan, Ed025, get him to make a worldy in the last minute to give the Blues an unlikely 3 points. Just for your old muckers on Liverpool Banter, it being Christmas and that?

{Ed025's Note - i think we will give them a good game juicer but they are a really good side mate, if we do get a result though it will be for everton and not a goodwill gesture for our noisy neighbours im afraid, christmas is a humbug when it comes to football my friend.. :)

05 Dec 2018 06:54:02
Walter would replace Klopp with arsene of course. It’s all getting a bit old.

{Ed025's Note - i agree TJ..

05 Dec 2018 09:19:13
What I liked about Everton was that they were not afraid to try and play and didn't just try to keep 10 men behind the ball with one player up top hoping to nick a goal from somewhere.
They will play the same way against City as they did against us, so that puts them in with a chance of at least getting something from the game.
It's not like some other teams that seem to turn up and try to keep the goals against down to as little as possible.
It should be a good game.

05 Dec 2018 07:15:44
That is crazy talk to even consider sacking Klopp, what have we all been banging on about the last few years, we want to be consistently competitive and challenging to trophies. Currently that is what we are achieving, we are soo lucky to be in the position we are.

I hate this expectation of glory and the people that believe that the 80s glory years are something that can happen again, the league is changed and there are a lot more competitive teams.

Klopp is doing a good job. FACT!

05 Dec 2018 13:05:15
Lol I can’t believe people are comparing Rodgers with Klopp cos he hasn’t won anything. Klopp has got us to 3 finals and finished twice in the top 4 and is on course to do so again we don’t have a right to win anything but we need to be challenging. We now are! Rodgers finished once in the top 4, no finals and was sacked when languishing in 8th looking like man utd do right now- in need of a miracle. Short memories people. Careful what you wish for. There are plenty of top clubs that would take Klopp if we think he’s that dispensable. Can you say the same about Rodgers? Look at UTD, struggling with one of the worlds best coaches.

05 Dec 2018 18:17:20
Thanks Grizz.

05 Dec 2018 18:18:52
We can’t control what City do so there is no point worrying about it. All we can do is get as many points as possible and see where we end up at the end of the season.

05 Dec 2018 18:19:37
Walter klopp might not win any silverware but will not be sacked. he might leave the job by himself as he has not achieved what he wanted with LFC he is that kind of a guy.
the bigger problem we as a club will have is who to replace Klopp.
Emery or Sarri would have been my choice but that will not happens.
we can get the best manager from scottish league to replace him may be.

05 Dec 2018 22:21:12
For the poster asking about xmas i loath xmas. Absolutely hate it. I do it for my kids.
It has lost all meaning and its just about big business making money.
No idea who to replace klopp with. Hopefully a manager that can win something though. What about the Bournemouth manager?

06 Dec 2018 19:49:13
Walter and RedLorry, did BR make a CL, EL and EFL final while with us? Did he win anything with us or even get as close as Klopp has gotten us? BR was the only manager I know who actually make us weaker after he himself, bottled the PL that was there for the taking. I see you missed all of that. How convenient. Comparing Klopp to BR is like comparing Lampard with Iniesta cos they both scored 20 goals in a season.

BR can win a thousand trophies at that feckless Scottish PL he coaches at (He is so bad that a rookie Steven Gerrard is about to embarrass him this season) YET he will not equal what Klopp has achieved in his career. Those are the facts and NO, he is not getting sacked cos the owners are not that dumb. If Klopp can't get to where he wants us to be, he will leave on his own like he did with BVB after giving them back their dignity.

04 Dec 2018 20:42:41
i think liverpool need to buy Anderson from west ham, this player what we need. : speed, skill, can play in wing or atacking midfield. what you think?

{Ed025's Note - i think he is lazy and overrated athos..

Agree3 Disagree6

04 Dec 2018 21:07:52
But on MOTD he looked quality in one match Ed025. Is that now how it works?

I’ll check his Fifa stats, that will settle it.

{Ed025's Note - its a damn good gauge KK.. :)

04 Dec 2018 21:11:16
Snow snippets from his time in Italy and I thought he was going to be a star this season however judging him from West Ham performances I have to agree with Ed 25 here. Bags of potential which he doesn’t seem to have the work rate to utilise.

{Ed025's Note - show pony for me Bmena..

04 Dec 2018 21:24:05
I’m sure I saw a stat today ( ok I know sometimes stat don’t mean diddly! ) but this was that Anderson was top of the list of the number of times a midfielders had given the ball away. Interestingly Pogba was second!

{Ed025's Note - i have some stats for you about anderson squiresy...lazy sod...1st ....most overrated player...1st...greediest attacker...1st..

04 Dec 2018 22:07:16
Say no to drugs.

{Ed025's Note - hey...thats my line max!..

04 Dec 2018 23:09:24
Felipe Anderson is as Ed25 described: Lazy, disinterested and plays well when the team is in full flow. When poop hits the fan, he is nowhere to be found. I will say as someone said, he looks awesome on the MOTD highlight reels tho.

05 Dec 2018 08:41:01
Thought I would save you a job ed.

{Ed025's Note - thanks for that max.. :)

04 Dec 2018 20:35:32
2nd Favourite team?
Tranmere- used to watch after playing footy on Saturday morning. Still the 2nd result I look for
Worst team?
Actually any side managed by Allardyce, Hughes or Warnock

Most liked top6, other than us?
Coy actually- purefoitball- to be enjoyed

Least liked top6
Wellies too choose United.

Best fans
Evertonians- to still be as positive as they are- we'll credit to them
Worst fans
The"new" City fans- the ones who weren't there in the old Div4 and can't be arsed turning up for some matches

Best club for community work Everton
Worst at community work most premier league clubs

Best food options, us scouse pies 🥧
Worst food options. Wolves.
