Mané injured now.

Drogie

1.) 15 Oct 2018 20:05:16
Wrist or hand injury I heard.

Did he miss the wife that much on international duty?

{Ed025's Note - love it SR..


2.) 15 Oct 2018 20:12:08
Broken thumb. Makes your comment even more interesting SR.

Looks like Lallana is back in the squad.

Drogie

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.

😡😡😡😡.

Drogie

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
Ed002.

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?

Cheers.

Drogie

{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
HAHAHAH

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.
Clueless.


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.

Morning Ed002.

With planning permission to expand the Anfield Road due to expire in September next year, do you think we'll look to revise the plans?

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't need the plans to be revised, a request can be made to extend the planning permission or work could actually begin on the work. However, financially the return on further expanding the stadium is not great and a large amount of money is committed to the rebuilding of the academy facilities. A recent lesson (that should have been) learned by the club is don't turn up to planning meetings and blatently lie.}


1.) 15 Oct 2018 16:48:10
Is there anything good about liverpool ed 2.


2.) 15 Oct 2018 16:51:02
It’s an interesting one, Peter Moore was recently interviewed and one of the topics discussed was the stadium expansion. He went on to say the club are debating whether to submit a new planning application to develop Anfield as they explore how best to expand the capacity of the stadium.

As you correctly say “additional seats, so to speak “won’t necessarily give you the best financial return. On the other hand though, demand for tickets is extremely high and with a season ticket waiting list at over 20,000 we do need the expansion. I’m just not so sure it will be done.


 

 

12 Oct 2018 21:39:00
Salah off injured in another meaningless friendly.

Drogie

1.) 12 Oct 2018 21:59:26
Oh my. Not now, he was coming back slowly to where he left of. Please tell me it didn't look bad.


2.) 12 Oct 2018 22:16:33
Anyone know the extent of the injury?

{Ed002's Note - No but everyone will panic unnecessarily until you find out there is nothing wrong.}


3.) 12 Oct 2018 22:20:13
I think seasons should just become shorter and launch all international football at the end of the season rather then breaks, it would mean better international football, probably more interest and saves breaking players out of routines. I know there will be a lot of commercial reasons for it but I wish they would keep it simple.


4.) 12 Oct 2018 22:49:38
That what supporters do panic I don't see a problem with that.

{Ed002's Note - Laughable to be honest.}


5.) 12 Oct 2018 22:56:49
They’re saying it’s not serious but let’s just get him home.


6.) 12 Oct 2018 23:08:16
Can we stop panicking so.

{Ed002's Note - You have to wait until he is blubbering like a little girl - and then you know it stings.}


7.) 12 Oct 2018 23:18:22
Salah wouldn't blubber for nothing.


8.) 13 Oct 2018 07:30:27
For those of us who pay good money year in year and put the time and dedication to follow the team ( I have some friends that follow the reds home away, all over Europe but I do know and appreciate not everyone can get to see their team play for a number of different reasons so that’s not the point ) - It’s really frustrating to see players injured on what most would certainly see as meaningless games.

I have friends that support different teams and we all feel the same, take Hazard out of Chelsea for instance, injured or possibly injured and my Sloany Pony pals that drink in the best pub on Parsons Green are panicking.


9.) 13 Oct 2018 09:18:28
We’ve been carrying him this season.

He needed a break.


10.) 13 Oct 2018 12:30:59
Can people stop saying a pointless friendly. He's very proud to play for Egypt and it was an ACON qualifier so to him it wasn't pointless. We may not like the international breaks because it interferes with Liverpool bit can we not belittle what it means for some of our players to represent their country.


11.) 13 Oct 2018 12:41:39
How is playing for your country meaningless? It is an honour.

It is a friendly in preparation for competitive games

Would everyone be happy if LFC went into an opening game of the season having not played a single game in preparation since May?

I’m guessing not.


12.) 13 Oct 2018 14:11:01
I don’t follow England Agger do so from my side it’s meaningless, everyone to their own.

Whilst players do get injured in season, there always players coming back from international duty injured

Put it this way, Ferguson was quite happy to ensure key players weren’t sent on certain international games to ensure his players stayed fit for the season.

This new crop of younger players are to be fair embracing the national team, many players in past years have only seen international duty as a burden, so it’s not always been an honour.


13.) 12 Oct 2018 17:16:57
Dare I say a few weeks out of the limelight might do him some good. Personally I think he’s similar to last season. Each miss seems to hurt him far more though. Hopefully he gets over that soon enough.


14.) 13 Oct 2018 22:20:31
Having followed inter'l football for 25 years, it is only in England where the fans think international football is meaningless. Other countries don't think that way, based on my experience. Strange really.


15.) 13 Oct 2018 22:26:21
Drogie, your premise lacks any type of logic. When you sign a player, you sign everything about said player INCLUDING the fact that he may have to heed the call of his country. It is such archaic thinking that 25 years ago, led to African players being stopped from going to play for their countries and in fact, some of them got threatened with contract terminations and benching. This is why the FIFA rule exists that you MUST release a player to play for his countries 7 days before the game and if you don't, he is automatically suspended for the next club game. As a result, what you or I are frustrated about is irrelevant here.

Also regarding injuries, the answer is simple. If you don't want to get injured, then DON'T be a professional footballer, end of story. You can get injured rolling out of your bed, in training or in any game so this idea that you don't want to release your players to play for their countries cos of "fear of injury" is ludicrous. Injury is a hazard of the job. If you don't want to get injured in any game or training session, don't train and don't play. Problem solved.


 

 

08 Oct 2018 10:39:18
Hi Ed001,

I saw you mentioned that our style has changed this season, not so intense with the press etc, due to the sports science team picking up our dip in energy levels at the back end of last season.

With our defence looking much tighter, this does make sense to me. Do you think this will be the plan for the rest of the season? Or could it depend on the fixtures and how we manage certain periods throughout the season.

It's an interesting one because we had so much success breaking teams down/ play in the opposition half.

I totally disagree with Neville saying " Liverpool were there for the taking " I was at the game yesterday and this certainly was not the case imo.

Drogie

{Ed001's Note - I think it will change during the course of the season, probably ramp up the press in the second half of it.}


1.) 08 Oct 2018 13:08:45
I think it’s just about the team learning to transition between the 2. They will learn when to press and when to play like we are now, if it keeps us up the top of the table till the final knocking of the season then it’s the right way to go.


2.) 08 Oct 2018 19:14:51
Drogie, Gary Neville is just being bitter cos his club is now a joke. Also, how was LFC there for the taking, exactly? City could not muster a really good chance all game long (the Mahrez chance was a tough one) and Pep literally came in hoping for a draw and had he gone for it (you know, cos the worst manager in managerial history said so), he would have got his arsed handed to him like he normally does by Klopp. His lack of self awareness is astounding cos If I were such a failure at management, I would stop telling other managers what to do. or in this case, what games they should go for or not.


3.) 08 Oct 2018 19:39:37
Totally agree. Atletico have had 2 distinct styles under Simeone for a long time as an example.

A high press, in your face style with pressure on the ball. And a much deeper rigid defensive style with men behind the ball and long balls up to the forward to counter.


4.) 09 Oct 2018 01:19:04
I thought we were there for the taking. We weren't exactly threatening their goal and there were more than few moments where our midfield and defence were scrambling, tho scramble well they did.


5.) 09 Oct 2018 15:33:14
Never ever seen Atletico doing a high press! They have only one style and it’s worse than Mourinho!


6.) 09 Oct 2018 19:14:41
Harry, you clearly have "never, ever" watched Atletico play, which is NOT surprising cos you talk a whole lot. First off Simeone and Poch are Bielsa disciples cos they played under him with the Argentine national team and hence, play the same high press he did with a tweak here and there.

Atletico play a 442 diamond hence, very compact and the alternate between defending deep or playing a high line depending on what is going on in the game. If you doubt me, go watch the last EL final btw them and OM. Navy Keith just schooled you. You're welcome.


 

 

07 Oct 2018 21:19:18
Credit to both sides CB's today.
Lovren/ VVD - Laporte/ Stones, all had really good games.

Drogie

1.) 07 Oct 2018 22:20:07
agreed I was pleasantly surprised with Lovren's form. I though the back line played very well.


2.) 07 Oct 2018 22:50:01
Lovren reclaimed his place to day (not that he had to cos he has been brilliant since Jan) as one of the best CB's around after some of our own "fans" were giving him loads after the Chelsea Cup game ( a game he played with NO preseason, off an injury and NO game time since the WC final) . He was brilliant today along with his team mates in the back line. 3 games vs top rivals = 5 point (more than all of last season and 8 points from 4 games on a tough PL schedule and STILL undefeated in the PL? I'll take that build on it going forward.


3.) 07 Oct 2018 23:50:06
What's your thoughts on the aguero pen claim? Seen them given plenty of times. I've felt comfortable watching vvd and gomez this season. I just think Lovren has that mindless mistake in him, but maybe playing alongside vvd settles him? I think we can all be thankful for mahrezs ego though.


4.) 08 Oct 2018 00:19:50
Agree, but not just on this game but most of other games this season so far. The defence, or the back 5, looks solid, and probably the most solid I've ever seen since I first started supporting the team.

Gomez is really going to be a superstar in the future by this rate.

Eds or fellow posters, what actually happened with Milner? I didn't watch it during the first 20-30 minutes, by that time Keita was already on.


5.) 08 Oct 2018 02:53:37
Yep, lovren is better positional than gomez, Joe probably better on the ball.


6.) 08 Oct 2018 07:12:14
VVD was also guilty of being rash yesterday, he was at fault for the Marhez penalty. I always listen to the phone in on the way home from the match ( radio Merseyside) VVD was being interviewed and he said he’d lost concentration for a split second and dived in. Admitted the mistake and said he’d learn from it.


7.) 08 Oct 2018 07:24:07
Whilst Lovren had a good game there were a few times when I panicked. Towards the end of the game when we play out from the keeper and he gave it to Lovren who was getting closed down. I don’t know why but he doesn’t fill me with any confidence and I’m either expecting him to pass back to the keeper under pressure, pass the ball to one of their players or lose the ball ans could their man. There is something about him that I just feel there is a mistake waiting to happen. I’m not saying it will happen and it may be based on previous seasons, but for the life of me I he scares me. I was shouting at the tv not to give him the ball.


8.) 08 Oct 2018 10:12:01
Lovren was brilliant again especially as lack of game time. And perhaps fans need to remember it was in actual fact a terrible sliced clearance from gomez that played Augero in and put lovren in instant danger in 6 yard box we no time to react. Lay off him he once again played Augero perfectly and he left the park frustrated! We are in great position yet not hit our levels. The back 5 that have played this season in league have been absolutely brilliant. Love Gomez van dijk pairing but great we have Lovren to come in when needed. He deserves so much credit for way he has turned ot around since the spurs away. And the heartache of losing two of the biggest finals in sport in tge space of 3 months. let's hope our front 3 start to click. And last thing sorry for long post. But may i say even though no trophy i have absolutely loved Klopps 3 years in charge top man.


9.) 08 Oct 2018 12:38:36
Spot on, Coco9. For someone who has only played one game in 3 months with no preseason, he definitely did not show it. It is also a great leap of faith from Klopp to pick him in such a HUGE game. But his detractors will continue to dwell on the Aguero incident, one where Gomez put him under pressure cos you know what? It's what they do and can't stand the fact that Lovs has and continues to prove them ALL wrong. Pretty sure that had a pen. been given, we all know who would be getting blame. Spoiler alert: Not Gomez.


10.) 08 Oct 2018 15:25:51
I would still play Gomez with VVD as they are slowly beginning to form a good partnership. Lovren has one mistake every game!


11.) 08 Oct 2018 15:29:06
I was talking to my son about this on the way home and I said to him "you can be guaranteed people will say lovren had a great game yesterday because he bullied small lads upfront with no physical presence" when in reality he was his normal rash self who on another day could of given away two penalties, his nervous distribution put other players in trouble at times, he is cut from the same cloth as moreno and if he's back in the side on a regular basis then you watch the goals conceded column rise! Here's a question for you all, no beating around do the Bush just a straight YES or NO, would you have lovren in over gomez every game?


12.) 08 Oct 2018 17:48:03
With trents form waro I would play them both, and move trent up the park so he can batter opposition goals with his longe range shooting.


 

 

07 Oct 2018 08:36:50
Morning Ed001,

I've not watched many games since West Ham, work and family commitments. today will be my first time back at Anfield since then.

It's cleae Mané, Salah and Bobby haven't really clicked yet, just wondering your thoughts on this. Rusty, a little fatigued not being match fit? It has The creativity not been there in midfield.

Drogie

{Ed001's Note - this is what always seems to happen after a World Cup or other summer tournament. Some players miss a proper pre-season and struggle to get going at first.}


1.) 07 Oct 2018 08:53:24
Didn’t think about that, good point, pre season is so important from a fitness point of view.

Today will be an interesting one Ed 001, with both teams not hitting top form. City haven’t won at Anfield since 2003, let’s hope it stays intact!


2.) 07 Oct 2018 14:03:35
The creativity has nothing to do with World Cup imo. Disagree with Ed01. It’s the same midfield of last season except the front three were scoring goals nobody noticed how puss poor our central midfield area were last season. Now that the goals have dried up people have started to notice it.
The creativity burden was always on the shoulder of Firmino post Coutinho!
Our midfielders are “Workman midfield”.


3.) 07 Oct 2018 14:30:44
'I have no name', James Milner set a new champions league assist record last season? sorry I'm just baffled how you can be so negative. The midfield did well last season and its hardly the same midfield anyway. Keita's introduction will make a huge difference once he's settled and we still have the Ox to come back. Aside from City I can't think of a more creative midfield in the league.


4.) 07 Oct 2018 14:32:28
No Harry. Lol.

{Ed001's Note - I am just glad he disagreed with me. The time to worry is when he agrees.}


5.) 07 Oct 2018 15:48:16
I agree with Ed01 about players struggling for form off the back of a summer tournament.
However Harry is right, there are rarely any goals from midfield, if the front 3 do not score then Liverpool struggle for goals. Klopp obviously wanted Fekir for more creativity and goals from midfield. Coutinho has not been replaced but finding the right replacement is easier said than done.


6.) 07 Oct 2018 16:28:24
Harry, you forgot to mention that we got to the Champions League Final with this "piss poor" midfield out of sheer luck and nothing else beyond that.


7.) 07 Oct 2018 17:50:00

Oh yea! Which is why Klopp is considering another midfielder (Ramsey) . You could certainly urge him not to buy Ramsey.
There is no match with city. They are yet to unleash KDB. We are not even close to Chelsea in that area let alone city!
Our midfield is “Workman Midfield” if you know what this mean!

It's your lucky day Harry, you are right again, I would love to see David Silva in LIverpools midfield, even at his age now I reckon there are still 2 or 3 years at the top for him, he makes the game look easy. It is too early to judge Chelseas midfield but Silva has been doing the business for years in the premier league.
Anyway, relieved we came away with a draw in the end, not a great though.

They clicked against West Ham, then the club reported Salah to the police and he’s looked like a stranger ever since.

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.

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.

Apparently he’s been offered to Madrid - Think Ed001 mentioned this.

It’s an interesting one, Peter Moore was recently interviewed and one of the topics discussed was the stadium expansion. He went on to say the club are debating whether to submit a new planning application to develop Anfield as they explore how best to expand the capacity of the stadium.

As you correctly say “additional seats, so to speak “won’t necessarily give you the best financial return. On the other hand though, demand for tickets is extremely high and with a season ticket waiting list at over 20,000 we do need the expansion. I’m just not so sure it will be done.

Second everyone’s comments regarding Peter Brackley, real shame.

Why does Lukaku need to be saying all this “ stuff “ regarding Seria A? Crazy.
