Afternoon Eds
Can u explain to me how the seeding is carried out for the champions league groups is it based on a clubs participating in it over the last 5 seasons or something to that effect and that's why Liverpool could effectively be in pot 3 for the draw pending what happens to Benfica in the next qualifying round
Cheers Mate.


1.) 03 Aug 2018 15:20:28
European rankings I believe, we were almost dead certs for pot 3 but now Basel are out if fenerbache can beat benfica we will go into pot 2.


2.) 03 Aug 2018 15:43:55
If we go into pot 3 it just makes it more tricky for those in pots 1 and 2.

Not many will be happy to have us joining them in their group as they know they will be in for a tough time.


3.) 03 Aug 2018 19:05:36
Pot 2 would be a good help but we were in pot 3 last season and got a favourable draw.


4.) 03 Aug 2018 22:27:32
We are awesome who cares what pot we are in.


5.) 04 Aug 2018 14:17:53
It doesn’t matter which pot we’re in
It’s our opponents who will be rubbish worried.


6.) 06 Aug 2018 08:56:45
Interestingly this year, pots 2-4 are actually fairly flat in quality making it very little difference what group we end up in - especially when you get some protection from not being drawn with teams from the same country - so if you get Real, Barcelona or Athletico in pot 1 you won't get Valencia in pot 4, and if you get Juventus in pot 1 you won't get Inter Milan in 4. Honestly, there is only really one team in pot 2 I'd rather avoid (Dortmund) and at least two in pot 3 (Roma and Monaco) so I'm very relaxed about where we get put.

Morning all

Surly these Jack Grealish rumours are tripe no doubting the kid has talent but he has a stinking attitude and a very short fuse to go with it, wouldn't want him anywhere near our club just a disruptive wanna be.

{Ed025's Note - im with you mate..


1.) 08 Jul 2018 09:34:57
Cheers ed25
I know this is the Liverpool site but how do you see the coming season developing for all you blue noses. What's your take on your new manager and potential ins and outs.

{Ed025's Note - im happy with silva and brands at the helm zippy, it will take time but i think we may be on the right track now and i dont expect there there will be many players coming in mate..


2.) 08 Jul 2018 12:06:20
Cheers mate looking forward to a few good auld derby battles this season best of luck to u and all the blue noses enjoy what's left of the weekend bud 😁.

{Ed025's Note - yeah mate that was a good decision..


4.) 08 Jul 2018 10:03:41

5.) 08 Jul 2018 21:39:10
Imagine if fat Sam was still the England manager. God we all dodged a bullet there.


6.) 09 Jul 2018 07:18:08
Sorry for the late reply Kloppboss. The study was of top athletes in football, rugby and aussie rules rugby, so no golfers Involved. Ox reruptured his ligament in one of three classical situation where he tried to regain possesion of the ball, the other two are after heading (the landing situation), and the last one is cut and turn moves. Those three situations are almost the only situations where fotballens at a top level gets an ACL injury. The risk of rerupture is significantly higher the first match after the first injury, there is also a higher risk of reinjury if you come back to playing matches before 9 months after the first injury, and the risk gets less and less until 12 months after the first injury, after that there is now significant difference if you wait even longer.
If you look at all athletes in all levels of sport the return to sport at the same level they were before the injury, the number is s low as 54 % (recent review from Clare Ardern and her study Group) .

Redallover: the study you are referring to is from Jan Ekstrands group (he runs the UEFA medical study group where all the participant club in Champions league are invited to join, a study that are ongoing and has been so for the last 16 years), and much has happened since 2001. There were a lot higher reinjury rate at that time, and most injuries has a lot lower injury rate. There are still high Numbers of injury rate when it comes to muscle injuries, especially hamstring injuries, but the last data seems to finally to show improvement there as well (not published yet, but presented at the isokinetic medical conference at camp nou, juni 2.-4, 2018).

Make no mistake, an ACL injury is a serious injury, and will probably lead to early OA (oestoarthritis) in early are, and many that are not at a top level will never come back to sports. But there have been major advances in preventing, and handling ACL injuries at all levels. The 11+ programme has shows to be preventing at youth level and lower levels, at high levels it is a little bit more advanced. And as said earlier on ACL injuries usually comes with various secondary injuries that could cause some problems.

The biggest risk of any injury is previous injuries (so a player that has been injured, has a greater risk of a new injury of any sort), and exposure (time spent in training and match, where playing a match is more than double risk than training in acute injuries and muscle inuries that are more of an overloadinjury, other overloadinjuries seems to occur more in training) .

I've listened to skarkpod#12 and even though our 1st choice for the full back position could be sessengong (excuse the spelling ) could you see us rekindling our interest in chilwell looked great and accomplished when he came on the other night .
Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe - and he would be a good option but perhaps a risk as first pick?}


1.) 20 Apr 2017 16:16:23
Cheers Ed much appreciated.

Hi Eds
Rumour has it that Alex Teixeira is unsettled in China and is looking for a move back to Europe . Do you think we could rekindle our previous interest in him it seems that Klopp had a good look at him before his move to China and obviously rates him highly or has that bird flown the nest .
Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing to do with Liverpool at this time.}


1.) 05 Jul 2016 15:15:52
If this was the case then maybe we would've looked at him, until we bought Mané. Now we have Mané we have moved on.


2.) 05 Jul 2016 15:50:37
He's struggled in a weak Chinese league, what would be the point of signing someone who failed in a league weaker than the SPL?!


3.) 05 Jul 2016 16:38:47
Because he did really well in a league much stronger than the Chinese league, and also the Champions League.


4.) 05 Jul 2016 16:41:37
I should add though, I don't want us to sign him, just the Chinese league point with all the other factors involved, including his difficulty settling, is a ridiculous one.


5.) 05 Jul 2016 18:06:17
I don't think he has played in a strong league.


 

 

03 Jul 2016 17:32:41
Hi eds any more developments on the Benteke situation have crystal palace actually submitted a bit and if so do you think they will increase it to this £30 million figure we are lead to believe that the club are holding out for cheers keep up the outstanding work .

{Ed001's Note - I am not aware of a formal bid, but they have spoken to us and know the asking price.}


1.) 03 Jul 2016 20:11:02
Eds

Is there any interest in Mousa Sissoko?

{Ed002's Note - Whilst Newcastle has said they have had no offers for Moussa Sissoko at this time, they are choosing their words carefully as there has been a further approach from Napoli and they are hoping to get interest from others, perhaps including Arsenal.}


2.) 03 Jul 2016 20:48:28
I think we are getting worse s players than we have.


3.) 03 Jul 2016 21:27:52
You're having a laugh Billo5times.


4.) 03 Jul 2016 21:39:07
Ron name me players that we've got and tell me about them and what they have done I bet you nobody as heard a single thing about them.


5.) 03 Jul 2016 21:53:01
I bet you diddnt hear much about suarez, coutinho, firmino, can etc? Just because they are not household major names that everyone knows doesn't mean they are any less quality, give em a break ey and trust the manager, his reputation on the line, he isn't here to muck about.


6.) 03 Jul 2016 22:04:24
Well I've heard a lot about Matip who is very highly respected in Germany and I think he might be our best recruit.
Karius I'd heard of but he needs to improve IMO
Grujic was courted by Champions league teams.
Obviously I've seen a lot of Mané at Saints.

You can't tell me Karius is worse than Migs or Matip worse than Skrtel?


7.) 03 Jul 2016 22:05:17
To be fair kiz all 3 where house hold names coutinho use to be a left back for inter if I'm not mistaken, Suarez has a brilliant goals to games ratio for Ajax and if that wasn't enough he was also known as the player who cleared the ball off the line against Ghana with his hand which resulted in them being knocked out of the WC on pennos and if you watched any bundesliga football you would know who firmino was and the excellent partnership he had with Kevin volland.


8.) 03 Jul 2016 22:04:24
Well I've heard a lot about Matip who is very highly respected in Germany and I think he might be our best recruit.

9.) 04 Jul 2016 04:59:04
Billo, Karius and Matip are definite improvements on Skrtel and MIgs. That itself will be worth an extra 10 points next season considering how many individual mistakes Skrtel and Migs made. Stop being so negative.


10.) 04 Jul 2016 07:12:13
Dev, Coutinho wS never a LB for Inter. He was a left midfielder for them under Benitez and was very good in the C L especially the game were they beat Spurs and Bale scored a hatrick. As for those saying Mingo is better than Karius must have been living under a rock the past four years as Mingo has gotten worse with every passing season while Karius was voted the best GK in Germany by his peers hence, he's already better than Mingo as Germany is the home for the bests gk's right now. Billo, what ever Sissoke was good at and whatever he added to the Newcastle team that got them relegated, I want NONE of it at LFC.


11.) 04 Jul 2016 10:29:57
Billo5times there showing his own ignorance. Won't even bother dignifying such nonsense with a detailed response.

But Dev, where did you get the idea Couts was a LB? Must've dreamt that, he's always played as a creative midfielder, either in the center, on the left or in the hole.


12.) 04 Jul 2016 13:38:00
Sorry guys memory isn't as good as it use to be, genuinely thought he use to play there, maybe in the games I was watching he was just filling in there for an injured player.


13.) 04 Jul 2016 14:38:33
Dev mate, come on.


14.) 05 Jul 2016 01:57:38
Suarez, Coutinho, Firmino and Can were all well known players/ talents when we got them.

Afternoon all.

Listening to Klopp after the Tranmere game last night it seems like we won't be buying too much this window, I think he will see just how good his youngsters are in the preseason games and then decide if we need to sign someone or not, of course if Clyne, Lalana or anyone else is sold then that might change things a bit but I personally don't think we are going to spend big at all unless a player that Klopp wants becomes available that is going to improve the 1st 11 and there aren't that many out there that would take a place away from of 1st choice starting 11! What do my fellow reds think about our transfer window so far and do u expect us to buy someone big I don't and I don't think it will be the end of the world if we don't . We have a great bunch of lads who would die for each other on the pitch there is great understanding and togetherness within that group and it has to be someone who will fit in with our traditions, work ethics and overstyle of play to be of any consideration. Times are good lads there's some bright young talent coming through maybe its time for those boys to shine and stake a place in the squad they all know what Liverpool FC is all about and if they are good enough well then there's no need to look else where and spend a packet! 😉

All the best fellow reds have a great weekend .

Why is it okay for City to have 2 players for every position, but when We talk about a player it's "who's he replacing"?
🤔 Competition is great in my eyes.

{Ed001's Note - City do not have 2 players for every position and are struggling to keep players happy that are on the fringes.}


2.) 12 Jul 2019 13:12:55
I said on here a few weeks ago Hoever should be right back cover and that Larouci was the most talented left back in the academy. We should let those two have at it. They won't improve on loan at Gent, Derby or Mouscron. Get them around the first team training with top players and covering injuries and cups. Robbo and Arnold will play most games anyway and Milner/ Gomez can cover in a crisis.

We don't need to spend big. I was keen on a versatile forward before seeing how much Brewster and Duncan have bulked up. The talent is there but I was worried whether they'd cope physically. That doesn't look like it will be an issue though. Maybe we should back the academy to supplement an already superb 15-20 senior players. Otherwise we'll end up losing Duncan and Brewster to teams like Dortmund who will back them!

I'd still like an attacking midfielder for the starting XI if possible but even that really hinges on how well Ox has recovered. If he's 100% fit come August, we are literally ready to fight on all fronts again without signing anyone.


3.) 12 Jul 2019 13:29:14
This same topic is getting boring and boring.

Same points, same arguments, different posts.

It's extremely clear there are two different opinions on this, maybe it's time to give it a rest?


4.) 12 Jul 2019 14:27:02
I stopped reading after the opening sentence.
And LiverpoolFC8 must just be working in the Russian troll factory.

Some of you need to learn to read before just letting those 'thoughts' that you seem to think are epiphanies dribble out of your ears onto the keyboard.


5.) 12 Jul 2019 15:22:21
Very promising start by Duncan and Brewster to be sure but too early to anoint either the answer at the forward spots, let's see as the competition gets tougher if they still look like they belong.


6.) 12 Jul 2019 16:05:00
Spot on Haizan.


7.) 12 Jul 2019 19:10:51
It doesn't matter what anyone says or doesn't say, if you don't bring in at least one top draw fresh face then your on the back foot before a ball has been kicked. I'd of looked at the logistics of a deal for (de ligt) as an example, could of freed up Trent to play in midfield and put Joe Gomez at right back, probably silly money so we had no dealings with his agent but that's the type of scenario that can only improve your squad surely, I'm astounded that people think we can beat an even better man city team to the title with the same team that couldn't do it last season. How hard is that to grasp.


8.) 12 Jul 2019 19:30:32
Play Gomez out of position to accommodate a younger centre half who isn't better than him (or even as good as Gomez dependant on opinion? ) .
All just so we can have one big money signing?
Now that's astounding.


9.) 12 Jul 2019 19:30:53
How’s about improving the players that we already have Waro? It’s not that hard to figure out really is it.


10.) 12 Jul 2019 19:36:53
I have to agree with you to a degree Waro, not only did city win the league but had the squad depth to win two domestic cups too.

Now I know they did have some pretty low key opposition during the knock out stages but still, they had the squad depth to do so.

We were very lucky with injuries last season and I still feel if Virgil gets injured we might not be so solid at the back. Back in the 80’s we always had two strong centre half’s, United did in the 90’s.


11.) 12 Jul 2019 19:42:57
Waro, could you not argue that our best players players are young and improving, whilst City's spine is aging and deteriorating?

Alisson was in his first season and got better and better as it went on. Trent, Gomez, Robbo, Fabinho, Keita and Origi are all under 25. Salah, Firmino, Mane, Virgil, Wijnaldum and Henderson are all coming into that 28-32 prime years. Ox and Brewster are back from injury. To say we won't improve by simply consolidating is a bit harsh on Klopp as a coach, and also our players as individuals with a desire to learn and win more.

Meanwhile City have lost their captain and leader in Kompany. Silva, Fernandinho and Aguero are all struggling more and more with injury. Sane, Mahrez and Jesus are all being difficult over lack of game time. No doubt Sterling, Silva, Laporte, Mendy and Rodrygo are all stellar players who should continue to improve. But can they cope as the spine of the team wilts? Who can say for sure.

I think it is perfectly reasonable to assume City are on the edge of needing a overhaul and our squad is on the edge of hitting its prime. Having said that, I would like a world class attacking midfielder to replace Shaqiri and/ or Lallana. I'm not going to be that bothered if it doesn't happen either though.


12.) 12 Jul 2019 20:00:26
My point of de ligt was purely as an example of how one class signing can dramatically enhance your squad, Gomez could rotate between CB and RB giving players the rest needed to stay fresh over a long season, extra long in our case with the extra games we have i. e. de ligt and vvd Gomez and de ligt Gomez and vvd moving Trent to midfield to rotate the midfield and allow them some rest Trent moving back to RB when Gomez is rotating at CB, all of those options on the back of one class signing is the point. I'll also reiterate what I said a while back, the greatest ever manager Sir Bob Paisley brought in at least two players a season on the back of winning leagues and European cups, that strategy used by the greatest ever manager is good enough for me.


13.) 12 Jul 2019 20:42:49
Liverpool were getting better as the season went on. I don't see any reason why that should change just because we haven't spent 60/ 70 mil on players.


14.) 12 Jul 2019 21:17:37
Waro I get your point. I don't necessarily agree but it's not an unreasonable argument. There is a strong argument that with KDB possibly fit all year City could be as good as they were the season before last when they hit 100 points. I'm just openly confident that our players are improving individually and as a unit at a more rapid rate. If Klopp decides he doesn't need or want to spend like he keeps implying, I'm not going to doubt him. He seems really confident in Brewster, Chamberlain and Gomez. He keeps describing them as like new signings. Time will tell I guess.


15.) 12 Jul 2019 23:04:33
De Ligt is not even better than Gomez when both are fit so bringing him up is a false argument. Also we are not City and cannot donwhat they do. Ed02 has said repeatedly that City have mass issues keeping players happy who are not playing YET many on here still drone on about City having two players for each position Which they actually don't. They don't even have cover for RB. We are not City and will never be them so we will never do what they do so people need to get over that.

The fact of the matter is that cos Klopp did not say what many wanted to hear suddenly means that we are signing nobody this season, is just laughable. We all know Klopp doesn't say what we want to hear always, means nothing is being done. I mean, people did not know Fabinho was signing yet there he was. If you are thinking Klopp will tell you what you want to here then good luck with that. Just don't moan about the things he says that don't please you.


16.) 13 Jul 2019 00:47:26
I still think we will get someone in like Firpo who can cover both LB and LW positions for Robbo and Mane. Klopp seems to trust his forward options with Origi getting a new contract and Brewster seen as a generational talent.


17.) 13 Jul 2019 08:00:48
I do kinda agree with Waro here.

A full back to challenge both of ours - Firpo maybe? A and a versatile attacker who can challenge the front 3 and provide a no 10 option - Fekir or Pepe (albeit he’s less of no 10).

Then just youth like Sepp and Elliot and others is fine.


18.) 13 Jul 2019 13:26:14
Redwolf, you're passing off your opinion on two players as fact to nullify my point, where are your facts to back up your sweeping assertion that Gomez is better than de ligt? I love Joe Gomez fantastic player but I couldn't say he's definitely better than de ligt, I hope he turns out to be and takes vvd's mantle when he's coming to the end of his career. You seem quite angry that the peasants are daring to question jurgens judgment, as humans everyone of us is fallible. If it's definitely down to the manager not wanting any players then that's fine and if it goes wrong it will be solely his mistake and will have nothing to do with FSG, that's if it is totally his decision.


19.) 13 Jul 2019 17:26:50
Waro it's a bit hypocritical of you to see you are allowed to question Jurgen Klopp's judgement when yesterday you told me I couldn't question Steve Nicol's judgement. that's Klopp, the manager who's won league titles and Champions league in Europe, and Nicol who barely cut it in the US Soccer leagues.


20.) 13 Jul 2019 22:14:45
I'm not questioning jurgens judgment at all, I was subtly questioning the owners.


21.) 13 Jul 2019 21:47:13
Waro, the fact that you think Stevie Nicol's judgement is worth considering, is just bonckers BUT I digress. So to answer your question, who's angry about Klopp being questioned? You are aware that I have questioned Klopp several times and still do? As for De Ligt, I gave an opinion just as you have given yours.

I have seen him play and he is not that good cos he is being carried by VVD (even I would look good next to him) with the Dutch team and IMO, he is overrated cos he is never challenged in the Dutch League. He is as overrated as heck. The guy wants 400k a week reportedly. So he should now be earning double of what VVD is on? Rubbish. The guy is not good enough.


 

 

06 Jul 2019 21:56:47
Well Mo and Egypt out of the African Nations bitter pill for the host nation to swallow but from a selfish point of view it will be good to have him back in the one piece after he has a well earned rest.


1.) 06 Jul 2019 22:14:05
Egypt were very poor tonight and South Africa deserved the win.
Sorry for Mo but, every cloud eh.


2.) 07 Jul 2019 09:17:03
On talksport the were saying mo for the ballon do'r if he guided Egypt to the afcon (that made me hope Egypt went out) but does that mean man might land it then if Senegal win. His achievements are better than salahs this season and has been the better player come in man lad hope he does.


3.) 07 Jul 2019 16:21:43
Egypt did not create enough chances to win the game and South Africa were brave, well-drilled and waited for the right opportunity to strike and they did. Brilliant performance from them. As for Salah, he needs a rest cos he looked tired all game long.


4.) 07 Jul 2019 23:32:12
If there's any LFC player that deserves the Ballon D'or it's VVD. Champions League Winner, PFA Player of the year, Nations League finalist. Domestic and International competitions covered.

Evening Eds

Forgive me if this has been answered already couldn't find it in the search engine . Do you think if more 1st squad members are sold ie Lovern Lalana etc do you expect any of these potential outs to be replaced by new signings or do you think some of our up and coming young talent could be given their chance to stake their claim.
Cheers and apoligies in advance if this has been answered already.

The last time a horse won back to back grand nationals Liverpool did a league and European cup double lightening could hardly strike twice could it 😉😁.
Words can't describe the momentous effort that was put in last night I don't think there is any other team in the world who could have pulled that off, belief, guts and unbelievable determination got us through not to forget the unreal atmosphere created by our die hard fans, so proud to be a Liverpool supporter silverware is long over due they say you have to loose one to win one come June 1st we will know and maybe just maybe it could be one half of an unbelievable double .

1.) 08 May 2019 12:07:53
I have been at many amazing European nights at Anfield - St Etienne 1977, Chelsea 2005, Dortmund 2016 - and my arl arse mates talk about Inter Milan 1965 - but last night surely eclipsed them all. Lots of people mock ‘the Anfield effect’ but you have to experience it to understand that there is a strange force that takes over and unites managers, coaches, players and fans on nights like this and means that nothing is impossible. Posters have said they have recently experienced dislike, even hatred, of Liverpool by other fans as we chase the CL and PL double - still on in my view - and it is nights like last night which ONLY Liverpool FC can produce and which probably provoke those e tremendous feelings. What they can only dream about, we deliver on a regular basis.

We are going to Madrid!

I'm currently awaiting a visa for New Zealand and sods law, it will come through the week of the final (I have a job to start at so can't delay) . But I've just checked online, one way flight to Madrid on 29th, £40, flights from Madrid to NZ - £600-£800. And my good friend in Granada just informed me he has several mates with homes in Madrid. Going to gamble on the visa time and book flights tonight.

Sorry to be pedantic, but when Red Rum won in 77 he wasn't winning back to back Nationals. He was winning the race again after succeeding in 73 and 74.

We can't underestimate how important the utd game is now with Citee's performance today, Chelsea are an embarrassment let's hope they are equally embarrassed when we play them. Utd are playing with so much confidence at the moment they will be extremely difficult to beat at O. T but it's a game that we can't afford to loose id take a draw but would love if we were to inflict Ole's 1st defeat as Utd boss it would be a real statement to all esp Citee.

Got to imagine we lose top spot after the united game. maybe we can hope for another City blip, but looks unlikely! United also have their tails up as well.


2.) 10 Feb 2019 17:41:07
Problem is Zippy Chelsea won't play this badly again, they will get a rocket and want to prove a point. I will take 1-0 in all our league games now and City blowing teams off the park 6-0 will matter not as we win the league.


3.) 10 Feb 2019 17:44:43
That’s goal difference buggered now. Eds any thoughts on Sarri and why it has gone so wrong for Chelsea?

{Ed002's Note - A third party is scheduled to take a look at the training and that was agreed a couple of weeks ago, and that may help with the inconsistency. But today they have obviously been well beaten by a very good side.}


4.) 10 Feb 2019 17:51:57
The United game is huge of course but it's our game in hand so even a draw were still in the driving seat. Also the United game is worth 3 points for a win like every other game so I hope our fans don't have a breakdown and lose faith if we drop points. There's a long way to go yet.


5.) 10 Feb 2019 17:56:47
I would suggest that Sarri's insistence on playing Kante further up the field, despite him being the best defensive/ protective midfielder in the world, is a big issue. I would also suggest that his faith in Jorginho, in the position previously occupied by Kante, is misplaced, and that Jorginho looks somewhat lost in the PL in which the space he he needs to perform successfully is rarely granted to him. I'm just basing in on the limited things I have seen but I don't think Sarri is selecting the best team based on the players he has at his disposal. Playing Ross Barkley today was also a disaster for Chelsea, he does not seem good enough for a team hoping to, at the very least, qualify for the Champions League.

{Ed025's Note - ross is more champion-ship than champions league seano..

I have no doubt Kimuraking that Chelski will not be as bad as they were today when they play us they will probably have a new manager by then mate and id take 1 nil wins all day long for the next 12 games but it's going to be so hard to do so however if we play to our full potential and at a high tempo then we can beat anybody let's hope we are up for it against utd we need to be full stop.


7.) 10 Feb 2019 18:14:00
I don't think we'll have problems with Chelsea when we play them, especially if Higuain plays.
It's the Man Utd match that's key now. They're playing with real belief. I was especially surprised when they beat Spurs. We just have to force their defence into errors.

{Ed0333's Note - they have genuine talent and a real hunger to win now. Will be a ridiculously tough game as I’m sure they’d love to derail our title charge but don’t underestimate the savvy of Jerguen Norbert Klopp.


8.) 10 Feb 2019 18:16:07
Haha good shout Ed025, don't think you're wrong mate. As as you mentioned Chelsea paid you's actual, real money for him. Incredible.

{Ed025's Note - i heard bill kenwright went to the negotiations dressed as dick turpin seano..


9.) 10 Feb 2019 18:23:28
Things were the other way around 10 or so years ago. And united used to NEED to beat us to win the league. Now the shoes on the other foot we need to go there and win there's no other option.

{Ed025's Note - that one game will not decide the title L8, all games have the same importance mate..


10.) 10 Feb 2019 18:34:56
City have been giving teams hidings all season, in that sense they are the best in the league by far. Along with dat though they've managed to lose four,3 of which were to teams outside the top 6.We just have to do what we have all season, win most of our games albeit with more difficulty than City do. and hope the form of this season continues which would mean City have another couple of off days and hopefully defeats.


11.) 10 Feb 2019 18:36:01
Chelsea were well beaten 4-0 by Bournemouth.


12.) 10 Feb 2019 18:57:04
Exactly ed25. The Watford game shortly after is just as important. 3 points is 3 points. This idea that dropping points to United in February would be season over is laughable, I really can't understand how people are being so short sighted.


13.) 10 Feb 2019 19:12:57
Exactly Drogie. City are still likely to lose silly games like they have 4 times this season regardless of today.
Chelsea played right in to their hands today and got punished. If you’re going to press City you have to mean it. They were so half hearted they just made it easy for City the play it around them.
Other teams won’t be so lazy.


14.) 10 Feb 2019 20:17:49
We shouldn’t let it intimidate us. Remember 2014? We were blowing teams away and nothing could stop us, not even city when we beat them at anfield. Who ended up winning the title? City did. Its a marathon not a sprint. City plough all their effort into some games and other games don’t really turn up. We are trundling along at a steady pace. Although i have to admit the prospect of playing at Old Trafford with the title on the line is terrifying, even i will go into that game a total pessimist.

{Ed025's Note - the utd game will not decide the title AW, too much emphasis is being put on that game if you ask me, points will be dropped by all of the front 3 before the end mate..


15.) 10 Feb 2019 20:56:21
Nail on the head ed25.We've seen enough examples in the last 6 weeks alone that the premier league is far from predictable.

{Ed025's Note - its a box of frogs mate..


16.) 10 Feb 2019 20:57:59
Perhaps not Ed025 but just the prospect of playing United in general terrifies me. I never enjoy it. No matter the result of the derby i always like the banter and contest, but i just don’t see it that way when playing United. The derby is considered a friendly and competitive fixture by most sane fans. Liverpool v United is just pure bitterness and the thought of losing to them makes me sick to my stomach.

{Ed025's Note - i think they will be more afraid of playing you than you should be of them AW, spurs should have mullered them and their defence is weak mate..


17.) 10 Feb 2019 20:59:50
Spot on, Ed25. The Utd game won't decide a thing esp. with 12 games left (near half a season) . it is the same thing people kept saying months before we went to City and then City got stuffed 3 times and lost the lead. Even Pep said after the Everton game that City will drop points. so people need to give all that stuff a rest.

We are getting healthy at the right time and with the break, TAA, Hendo, Gini, Matip and Lovs have a chance to get fitter and stronger and with the B'mouth win, we will be up for it vs Utd. People need to also understand that Utd have a very porous defence and Leicester and esp. Spurs proved that cos Spurs could have won by 4 goals BUT DDG stood on his head. If they offer us those types of chances and we are on song, they will be punished. I'm looking forward to it, really.

{Ed025's Note - and well you should red wolf, if you cant get up for these type of games then you dont deserve to be in the race mate, these are the type of games that all supporters should relish man..


18.) 10 Feb 2019 21:19:34
You already know what it is, Ed. Always up for a fight. We are in a true DOG FIGHT for the title in the MOST difficult PL season in history. That alone, should get people up and bouncing esp. cos the way Utd play now, suits us perfectly. If we're going to win the PL, we're going to have to get through EVERY team. LET~S GO!


19.) 10 Feb 2019 21:50:04
Speaking a lot of sense there Redwolf! The title race is well and truly on and I for one am going to relish every second of it! Time to get behind the team and forget about this idea that city are invincible.


20.) 11 Feb 2019 01:26:26
Ed025 the only. thing that worries me is ddg. usualy he comes to save really well against us.

{Ed025's Note - hes very good liverbird but hes not a miracle worker, their defence is poor mate and liverpool will score im sure, it will depend on how liverpool defend against their very good attack..

Hope not, totally overrated only a mid table type player wouldn't touch him with a 40ft barge pole.

Agree about Gomez has been fantastic this season but injury record not great for a youngster if you want to be the best in the world you have to have the best players what's to say Gomez couldn't play full back more solid than TAA imo. Defence :-Alisonn, Gomez, Van Diyk, Koulibaly, Robertson if that's not enough to get you excited I don't know what is Ed0333.

{Ed0333's Note - Gomez is no right back mate he’s too haphazard there. I’m sure Koulibaly would be VVD money and I’m not sure we will spend that amount on a player again.

Hope your trying to wind us up as we have enough rubbish at the club without adding another average player if we are in the market for another world class centre half then test Napoli's resolve and make a proper bid for Koulibaly.

{Ed0333's Note - And what message does that send to joe Gomez who was playing out of his skin before his injury.

He'd get his place in the Everton team no bother 😁 ed25 . Look all joking aside a decent player but only in dribs and drabs has a great 25mins then wouldn't hear his name mentioned for the rest of the game be sorry to see him leave I've actually grown to like him but he would only be a squad player aside from injuries and that probably needs to be playing week in week out but won't get that at Liverpool this season plus we have to trim the squad he wouldn't be my 1st choice to go by a long shot but things need to be balanced out in all fairness.

{Ed025's Note - i have to be honest zippy he would probably do a decent job for us mate, but liverpool are on a different planet at the moment and you dont win titles with the likes of gini in your team im afraid..
