Looks like Lallana is back in the squad.


1.) 01 May 2018 16:35:48
Wouldn't it be wonderful if he came on were loosing and he scores the goal to put us through.
Have to admit I don't see us winning tomorrow.

2.) 01 May 2018 16:48:39
why are you so negative, negativeredwalter?

Say it with me- WE WILL WIN! YNWA Liverpool!

3.) 01 May 2018 16:54:47
Are you mad? That would mean most of us would have had a heart attack by then.

4.) 01 May 2018 17:03:09
We won’t lose.

5.) 01 May 2018 17:24:57
He not available to play just part of the squad.

6.) 01 May 2018 19:10:01
Mr cup half empty negativity strikes again. Go have a pint mate an cheer up.

7.) 01 May 2018 19:14:30
Why so negative all the time Walt?

8.) 01 May 2018 19:26:44
I ran this through my model and it says 2-2 is the score tomorrow.

9.) 01 May 2018 20:01:12
Lallana is great but I wouldn’t put a pound on him scoring in most games.

{Ed0333's Note - Lalana is great?

10.) 01 May 2018 21:04:46
Great at Cruyff turns.

11.) 01 May 2018 23:06:43
Lallana is great. spot on. Love him.

{Ed0333's Note - Lalana is not great. Repeat after me...



23 Mar 2018 21:39:33
Gomez injured. Can't stand this whole England friendly rubbish.

No doubt Southgate will play Hendo against Italy, whilst Klopp is trying to manage his situation.



1.) 24 Mar 2018 13:49:50
On the plus TAA needs the game time to improve.

2.) 24 Mar 2018 20:27:09
I must admit, I was annoyed to see Hendo stay on for the whole match!

3.) 24 Mar 2018 20:35:07
I'd wait and see Drogie, I have a feeling there is more understanding and respect with Southgate in terms of keeping upto date with club managers. It's just a hunch but he gives the impression he sees the bigger picture whereas in the past it's almost been a club vs country mentality. Let's see.

4.) 24 Mar 2018 22:44:00
It would also be nice for clubs (and fans for that matter) to understand the importance of the national team. I for one want Hendo to excel at national level and the national team to do well and I'm sure he does too. If that means two games then so be it

Sadly that's the problem with the premier league and its inflated opinion of itself. It should never be club v country rather the national side being the pinnacle, not the champions league. Germany get it and are successful - england teams don't and hence, in recent decades, are not.



27 Sep 2017 14:32:46

So it looks like Ancelloti will be leaving Bayern at the end of the season.

I remember you mentioning something about Klopp wanting to manage Bayern or vica versa.

Do you think there will be an approach from Bayern for Klopp if Ancelloti does leave?



{Ed002's Note - Yes it is on the cards that CA will be leaving a year early and Bayern are indeed considering their options. Whilst Klopp did want the job this will not be good timing and will be a year ahead of previous thoughts. Right now I would not expect an approach.}

1.) 27 Sep 2017 16:25:33
Then maybe we can have a exchange with Bayern.

2.) 27 Sep 2017 19:25:59
Klopp's profile has taken a serious beating and will not be on top 3 of BM radar.

They will be looking at Hoffenheim mgr and others.

3.) 28 Sep 2017 02:42:33

Klopp's profile has "taken a serious beating"?

How exactly? Took a struggling side from 8th to 4th, plays exciting creative football. We've had some struggles recently, but any idea his stock has thus fallen seems petty and silly.

4.) 28 Sep 2017 07:12:20
Klopp can't seem to set up a defence so his rep has been hit surely. The UK media have fallen out of love with him as have some fans.

Hope he stays though.

5.) 28 Sep 2017 14:22:40
Ancellotti has just been sacked!

6.) 28 Sep 2017 14:35:21
Before I say, I just want to clarify before anyone has a go at me I do not want Klopp to leave or am I trying to slate our Manager. Ed01 in the unlikely event Klopp goes to Bayern who realistically would you have to replace him at the club? Asking really to get your thoughts on Managers you think highly of after your recent article about overrated managers.

{Ed001's Note - I honestly cannot think of a realistic choice.}

7.) 28 Sep 2017 15:00:54
Rafa Benitez? Would jump at the chance to return to the club, and he would bloody do something about our awful defense.
And before people jump on my back, I want to clarify I do not want Klopp to leave. BUt its inevitable he will leave at some point for Bayern, so we need to be prepared for that.

8.) 28 Sep 2017 15:25:55
Good Shout Buzzer can't think of any other option apart from him to be honest. Matter of time before he falls out with Ashley at Newcastle so I agree a reckon he would definitely be up for a return to us.

9.) 28 Sep 2017 15:43:19
As our Sporting director is lacking in experience, I'd replace Klopp with a more experienced manager. They could also then act as a mentor for Pepjin Lijnders.

Someone who is exceptional at the job, a seasoned veteran, but relatively realistic; like Jorge Jesus, Mauricio Sarri or Carlo Ancelotti.

I'd love Allegri or Simeone but they are not going to leave the clubs they are at, for Liverpool mid season.

{Ed002's Note - Super Stevie Nicol is available.}

10.) 28 Sep 2017 15:56:48
No thanks 002! Nicol was a great player, but he is a little bit of a mouth piece nowadays! Haha. He has been publically scratching towards a fair few current players as well!

{Ed002's Note - You don't think a dream team of SSN and SSG would work then?}

11.) 28 Sep 2017 16:31:22
Can i gouge my eyes out instead?

12.) 28 Sep 2017 17:08:22
Tom werner says our new sporting director is world class . After his first summer in charge of transfers world class at what?

13.) 28 Sep 2017 18:18:24
Ancelloti was my first choice over Klopp, would be interesting to see what team would be had CA been appointed.

{Ed025's Note - a boring one..

14.) 28 Sep 2017 19:08:00
Klopp can set up a defence, he's done it before. Lack of transfers is our undoing as it has been for years. Way before he came.

15.) 28 Sep 2017 19:23:22
IF and that's a big if klopp leaves id like the german coach lowe, id love poch tbh rbl manager or go big for simeone.

16.) 28 Sep 2017 23:10:38
Silva from Watford anyone?

17.) 29 Sep 2017 01:12:36
Leonardo Jardim?

18.) 29 Sep 2017 00:00:47
Disappointed in Klopp. Going to Bayern from Dortmund seems like such a betrayal, same as all those players who moved. Don't know how others see it, especially German fans? Maybe it's expected?

Also feel like the "if I only coach three clubs. " speech last year was a load of horsesh1t.

{Ed001's Note - what are you talking about? He has gone nowhere yet.}

19.) 29 Sep 2017 08:05:49
Unbelievable. Ancelotti gets sacked and Robboz has already pegged Klopp as Bayern's new manager.

20.) 29 Sep 2017 08:14:37
From what I've read here, it sounds like it's only a matter of time.

Okay, I will reserve my disappointment until he does.

21.) 29 Sep 2017 13:31:59
If Klopp does get sacked there's this young Northern Irish managed in Scotland at the moment doing well

Brodgers or something like that.

He might be worth a shout.

{Ed025's Note - i could manage celtic and win that league dawn..

22.) 29 Sep 2017 14:14:09
That was a joke btw. didn't think i had to qualify that.

{Ed025's Note - i did get that mate..

23.) 29 Sep 2017 14:29:10
Maybe we could go for Koeman once he gets removed.

Sorry Ed25, could resist 😜😜.

{Ed025's Note - im better than him i can assure you drogie..

24.) 29 Sep 2017 15:55:26
Got his initial team selection wrong last night mate. IMO.

{Ed025's Note - every week for me drogie mate, playing rooney is his main flaw..

25.) 29 Sep 2017 23:09:52
Seriously discussing klopp replacement? Whilst he has many failings he is surely the best option at this time.

If he can sort the defence out then who knows how far he can take us.

26.) 30 Sep 2017 23:11:44
Flash, are you dim?

Read Ed2's response to the first post in this thread.

Apparently Klopp wanted the Bayern job, although at this point it is a year ahead of what the previously thought timescale might have been. This sounds to me like Klopp may be off after next season, or thereabouts.

The haters can give this a thumbs down all they want but it's there for all to see.

27.) 01 Oct 2017 15:56:13
XABI wants to manage! ! :-)

28.) 01 Oct 2017 16:22:00
I think you meant signing Rooney ed025.

29.) 03 Oct 2017 00:17:25
This is about the only statement that Ed002 has made about Klopp that I genuinely can't see. Especially when he does things like this. It's just my opinion of course.

13 Aug 2018 07:06:21
Great to be back an Anfield yesterday.

What a player Keita looks.

But for me, Milner. An inspiration to any young reds coming through the ranks. Ed001 he was immense once again yesterday!


{Ed001's Note - he was excellent. Always good to see when it is a player with such a great attitude.}

1.) 13 Aug 2018 07:20:03
I agree ed. He continues like that and Fabinho is going to have to wait his turn just like Ox did. I’ll Still be shocked if Both Of Lallana and Wijnaldum stay. And I actually think Wijnaldum is decent, but our midfield is looking good again!

{Ed001's Note - very good, and all this without the one more signing Klopp wanted in there.}

2.) 13 Aug 2018 07:54:35
Milner and Gini were both fantastic. The only thing you might be able to say about them is their goal scoring record is relatively poor, Gini in particular had a fantastic chance and fluffed his lines and looked like it’s on his mind for sure.

Given our front three, we are prolific enough not to be too concerned, but in a really tight match that can be the difference, which someone like KDB or Pogba or Eriksson would be more likely to convert.

Hopefully Keita helps ease the pressure on goals from midfield a bit, but that’s the only hesitation I’d have about playing Milner and Gini in the same team in the more attacking midfield roles at the same time.

3.) 13 Aug 2018 08:23:33
Exactly Ed001. All of that without Chambo, Fabinho and Hendo. And even Fekir who Klopp was desperate to sign. The midfield trio that played West Ham had everything in their locker and the other midfielders that were on the bench should be made to fight for a first team place (though I think Hendo walks into the team for next weekend and Fabinho will have to bide his time) .
Unfortunately, I still think City have a bit too much quality and depth to not win the league again.

4.) 13 Aug 2018 08:43:26
I'm a big gini fan. Hoping he stays and gets more opportunities to push forward.

5.) 13 Aug 2018 09:05:32
Ed who was the signing klopp wanted in there a defender? An attacker? More than likely fekir or Vida as u say the soldier as I agree.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp wanted to take Dani Ceballos on a loan to buy but the player did not want to leave Spain. Liverpool never spoke with Lyon again after the initial screwing around over price.}

6.) 13 Aug 2018 09:15:14
Is James Milner Benjamin Button? He seems to be improving year on year and his engine is unreal.

7.) 13 Aug 2018 09:37:42
We can still try sturridge in there, shaqiri, Curtis, lallana and probably keita with hendo and fabinho behind.

Well stocked there.

I can't believe this is actually liverpool where watching by the way 😁.

8.) 13 Aug 2018 10:05:22
TJred I will be shocked if lallana and Gini don't stay this season. All these players will be needed through out the long season.

We are already without the OX for what looks like most of the season.

9.) 13 Aug 2018 11:39:14
Who does Hendo walk into the team for next game? Hardly like any of the midfield deserve to be dropped from yesterday’s performance.

10.) 13 Aug 2018 13:04:17
Defo. The midfield 3 were fantastic. all deserve to start next week.

11.) 13 Aug 2018 16:21:01
I notice I got 7 thumbs down which is fair enough, don’t mean to sound critical after a stellar performance, particularly from our midfield which dominated, but I couldn’t help but notice Gini’s missed opportunity.

Looking at stats of our main midfield three last season, then just in the PL, Hendo scored one, Gini one and Milner zero. That doesn’t make them useless players, In fact they were integral to so many top performances by dominating many games and controlling the tempo to let our forwards run amok, but it shouldn’t hide the fact they didn’t convert many chances when they did come along. We need them to improve on converting chances to really take the team to the next level IMO.

BTW for comparison, KDB scored 8, Silva 9 and even Fernandinho 5.that’s 20 more goals over the course of the season.

I love our midfield but I think it’s fair to say they can still improve in converting chances themselves rather than relying on the front three only. I think Keita will help address this in part.



07 Aug 2018 20:00:11
What a ball from young Phillips for the second goal.




02 Aug 2018 07:39:27
I think finally we are getting our transfer strategy right.

Yes we've signed 3 quality players ( with Naby negotiated last year ) so you could say four.

We now have a base to work from, to add quality over quantity. If we can keep our top players and add just maybe one, maybe two usefully additions a season that has to be the way forward.

In my opinion, we have to appreciate the owners backing Klopp big time. I'd love us to win the league within the next season or two, not just for my own satisfaction but for FSG too.


1.) 02 Aug 2018 07:46:33
As much as Waro and other posters have slated our owners, there is no denying their backing of the club. They are desperate to win something as are the fans.

2.) 02 Aug 2018 08:07:00
No one can question FSG's backing. I agree I think we have decided to spend 2 years money in one window so we can compete over a season. In the next few windows hopefully we will only need one quality player at a time.

3.) 02 Aug 2018 13:08:59
Understandably, Waro has been quiet this summer, but I would be interested in hearing his take on what has been going on at the club for the last year. Surely he must be a bit excited? Waro?

4.) 02 Aug 2018 18:18:34
I'm sure there is method to the FSG madness. Paying world record prices for 2 players within 6 months is not haphhazard or without design, I think. It raises the value of registrations, which in turn raises the value of the club on the balance sheet (even though the profit/ loss statement may not be so healthy) . Add a title or two. And every one will be then looking at what the next step is going to be. 😉.



19 Jul 2018 23:39:19
The penny has certainly dropped, finally we are signing quality over quantity.

The only way forward.


1.) 20 Jul 2018 00:34:09
I agree, people may say we’ve paid over the odds but I thought that was the problem in the Benitez era, too many nearly men signings.

2.) 20 Jul 2018 02:08:45
Indeed Drogie, it's exciting the direction we're going in mate. The owners have really done us proud, not just this transfer window but overall. They want success and are doing everything in their power to provide it, that get's a lot of respect from me.

I remember before the CL final I'd said how proud I was of this club and it'd felt like years since I felt this excited about Liverpool and our progression. That was then with the great team we had last season, and now we have a transfer window like this? I can't put into words how happy I am with our new additions.

We're back to where we belong, right at the very top!



18 Jul 2018 08:00:56
The only thing I remember about Alisson, was him picking the ball up from the back of the net against us in the Semis.7 times.


1.) 18 Jul 2018 08:21:05
Good thing if he on our side that will never happen again in his life.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 09:21:43
To be fair to him he wasn’t at fault for any.

Point taken Agerdoo regarding our buys back then but what you have to remember, Fergie was given serious funds by Edwards. They were signing big names and started to break records, Gary Pallister for one back in the 90’s

Moore’s held us back for years, way before we were sold. Whilst we stood still, United were starting to roll with commercial deals, they floated the club twice, 91 and 96, they moved forward, expanding the stadium. Sorry matey big that’s the hard truth.

01 Aug 2018 17:51:11
I think I’m recent times under FSG, yes we’ve spent big to an extent. Go back to the early 90’s, whilst United moves forward, Martin Edwards providing Fergie big funds, along with two floatations on the stock exchange. Money invested into the team and the re build of Old Trafford. During the same period, Moore’s and Parry held us back.

Wenger was given big funds, we all know about chelsea and now City . In between this, we had Hicks and Gillwt that nearly took us down.

People don’t realise how good our owners have been.

Gini on his day is great but he goes missing far too often, especially when we play away.

Agree with Juicer though.

Risky strategy.
If he did end up at Madrid it would not only undo all the work involved in negotiations but most worryingly, leave us scratching around for an alternative with not much time. It would be a disaster.

It’s ok saying we don’t need 100 CB’s but what we do need is quality.

Plus the fact Gamez ( who I rate highly ) Klavan and Matip are all extremely injury prone.

It’s an area we should have strengthened in my opinion because for me, Matip and Klavan aren’t good enough. This area of the team, along with the keeper situation has been our achillies heel for years now. If VVD gets injured we have no commanding presence at the back. Lovren has improved but without a VVD type next to him, he loses confidence.

I really hope Phillips can kick.

I’m so with you ed 3333 regarding a CB. I love joe Gomez be he, along with Matip is very injury prone. And Matip for me, is 3rd choice at best.

We’ve had a fantastic window but still feel we are weak in that area.


{Ed0333's Note - I’m more positive now safe in the knowledge that Chelsea didn’t sign Fekir. I would have loved Fekir and Vida but it’s been an above average window for us and I can’t grumble.
