Quite obvious our midfield is good but not creative enough we can run and pass sideways all day but we need someone who can pick a pass. klopp is very reliant on the old crop, I want to see fabihno and Keita in that midfield. really hope they can adapt. I am surprised they haven't as they have quality . Would be nice too have Shaq in the team in front of 2 midfielders as he is our most creative spark.


1.) 20 Oct 2018 21:11:10
Shaqiri to fill the Coutinho hole all day. He’s looking like more and note of a bargain every time he plays.

2.) 20 Oct 2018 21:48:56
He is needed for that bit of magic give him protection with 2 midfielders behind and let him pick passes make runs, the usual front 3 could benefit from his vision and craft, I also think Keita should b given a go there too run at people an bring others into play would b good for his confidence too free the shackles an have licence too attack , shame we never got fekir obviously.

3.) 21 Oct 2018 13:07:50
Maybe against the smaller more stubborn teams we need to play shaqiri in stead of third misfielder.

We will click, there were moments in the past 2 and a half season with klopp where we would not click as an attacking team and lost or drew games. I think we were 9th after that second int break last season.

This season the defense is supporting when we aren't scoring 3-4 goals. The goals will come im not worried.



17 Jun 2018 15:44:40
Eds I definitely think we need different options up front, maybe a target man for certain games, is the young lad taiwo awonyi anywhere near up to it as this year he has progressed more with the club he on loan at, from what I can see he looks tall strong quick an potentially a nuisance, what's your opinion on him.


{Ed002's Note - Awoniyi will go on loan again - getting a Work Permit has proven not possible. I suspect the club will look to Anderlecht as the preferred option but other sides such as Brugge and Standard Liege might be interested in a loan.}

1.) 17 Jun 2018 16:25:59
That does make sense Ed. He did quite well in Belgium, would playing for a more higher profile team help get a permit Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Potentially, but one I suspect will be a struggle to keep in the longer term. He will go on the pre-season tour of the United States and then on loan.}

2.) 17 Jun 2018 16:35:20
Ed2 are the work permit committee pissed off with us? The only reason I ask is because of how we got Grujic his by lying and I can only imagine we aren't in their good books because of that?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool abused the system so they were certainly at the time. The whole Grujic situation has been a terrible mess but it will soon be over.}

3.) 17 Jun 2018 17:17:35
How in demand is ..............

{Ed002's Note - This is the page - we are not going to answer questions about random players.}

4.) 17 Jun 2018 17:22:42
Interesting Ed2, thank you!

5.) 17 Jun 2018 17:41:56
Cheers Ed.

6.) 17 Jun 2018 18:10:11
Why can’t Solanke be the target man?

7.) 17 Jun 2018 18:26:49
He is better behind a striker apparently slightly deeper that's where he plays for England youth teams.

8.) 17 Jun 2018 19:44:49
Ed002, will it be even more difficult after Brexit?

{Ed002's Note - Not for people like Awoniyi.}

9.) 17 Jun 2018 21:09:46
Sure, but I’m mean will the permit panel be a bit overwhelmed when the EU players have to apply?

10 Nov 2018 23:39:34
Ello ed 025 gutted for tony there, but usyk was very very good, I am officially a fan of usyk's brilliant too watch could see him doing joshua!


{Ed025's Note - yeah hailstones a bridge too far for tony there, that usyk is some fighter though and all i can say is beware anthony joshua this guy is the real deal, now the bomber can put his feet up and get back to being in the sky studio which im sure rachael will be happy about, hes had a very good career and can be very proud of the way he has represented this city mate..

1.) 11 Nov 2018 00:14:05
Very intelligent fighter is Usyk, I was gutted for Tony there. I agree with Ed25, he has a lot to be proud of, I'm glad he's leaving it alone now though, it's for the best.

If Usyk keeps going (which I have no doubts about) I see him vs Joshua in the next year or two, it'd be bloody huge.

{Ed0333's Note - post fight was pleasure to witness. Clearly Bellow was concussed but he was graceful in defeat. For me Tony Bellow’s class was the winner for me in this scenario. As for Joshua V Usyk that’s gonna be a monster pay per view fight.

2.) 11 Nov 2018 00:19:31
Defo mate can't help but love tony him and paul Smith come across well on sky and do a boss job on there, yes usyk is fascinating as a character and he was better than i thought tonight he showed a different side against a warrior who by the way performed brilliantly then the energy levels seem too switch . I think that might b the last time I roar too z cars fist pumping when he came out haha .

3.) 11 Nov 2018 00:31:07
Honestly thought bellew was gona do it at 1 point. But wow, usyk, what a fighter.

4.) 11 Nov 2018 07:35:07
Didn’t manage to see the fight, seen the knockout though and it looks brutal. Bellew has a lot to be proud of and took a huge fight against Usyk when he could easily of gone for a money fight or an easy win to see it out. No one can take away from him that he has been a world champion, winning it at Goodison no less.
Usyk vs Joshua would be huge but Usyk needs a few fights at heavyweight first and think Fury will be in line first for Joshua. Which is a fight I think fury wins.

{Ed025's Note - yeah WYred tony has had a very good career but its time now to call it a day, i have to disagree with you on fury though mate, AJ beats the living crap out of him for me..

5.) 11 Nov 2018 08:56:28
Fury has too get past wilder first in America that's going to b some fight, and the weight he has lost the drugs and alcohol he has consumed I think will catch up wid fury on the night, but I hope he wins!

{Ed025's Note - i dont care who wins that one hailstones, they are both horrible individuals and whoever wins will face the wrath of AJ who i believe will dispose of either one of them mate..

6.) 11 Nov 2018 10:02:21
A nice change to see both fighters showing respect in the build up to the fight and and after the fight. I lost interest in boxing due to all the trash talk and fake fighting in the press conference and weigh in etc.
Hopefully Joshua and Usyk will drive trash like Fury and Wilder out.
Great respect for Tony, he accepted his best was not quite good enough. Glad he's retiring, too many fighters wrongly carry on for 1 more pay day.

7.) 11 Nov 2018 10:02:23
I would love too see joshua smash the 2 of them looks like he might have too go too America too fight wilder but if fury beats wilder, very exciting boxing for UK and no staying up til 4am.

8.) 11 Nov 2018 10:28:31
So would I hailstones mate but I see Wilder beating Fury personally.

9.) 11 Nov 2018 11:34:07
Id recommend watching the joe rogan podcast fury was on a few weeks ago. It was a really good watch. Shows a completly different side of fury.

10.) 11 Nov 2018 11:35:20
Have you seen the shape fury has got himself into? 50kg drop in a year. It all depends on how his body reacts to being dragged into the championship rounds against a big hitting unorthodox fighter. He is technically a better boxer than wilder and aj, but one bomb and he’s done. Hard to call it for me as Fury is great at not getting hit and when he does his movement minimises the damage.

{Ed025's Note - physically he is in great shape den, pity about his brain really mate..

11.) 11 Nov 2018 12:29:50
Joshua would pulverize both Fury and Wilder. He may take a few shots and may even get knocked down. But he'll get up and do to them what he did to Klitschko.

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

12.) 11 Nov 2018 07:55:11
AJ is pure power and needs to be at the right size or he loses some of his speed, AJ beats Fury IF he can land a big shot, I just think Fury would throw AJ of his game plan and play right into Furys hands. He is an unbelievably tricky fighter and not sure AJ would cope with the circus of the build up. This is one occasion where i hope I’m wrong!

13.) 11 Nov 2018 16:22:32
Aj destroys all of them, as for Usyk looks a great fighter but Bellow was winning the fight and if he was in the same ring as Aj would not last a round as he said he self he is just to big. Bellow was very clever by picking a fight with Haye that made him the star he became because he could see he was past his best. when Evander Holyfield moved up there was not such a gap but the new breed of heavyweight are pure monsters close a 4 stone gap is like moving Flyweight to Super middleweight in one go.

14.) 11 Nov 2018 16:32:05
Usyk would be fighting somebody on a different stratosphere to Bellew though if he took on Joshua! let's face it Haye was toying with Bellew till he did his foot in in their 1st fight.

15.) 11 Nov 2018 17:20:09
Ello salah mate great result today! I watch all Joe Rogan podcasts love all that, seen the fury one it was good!



28 Oct 2018 18:24:03
Quick message for BRover, mate I don't know what side of the bed u got out of yesterday but I would swerve that side in future, anyway back too your reply first off I don't buy papers full stop haven't bought papers for ten years and I believe what I want too believe off the evidence what's in front off me.

Maybe I should of worded the post a bit better paul merson sky pundit was saying salah was looking unhappy and it's only a matter of time and INDEED he is stirring the pot in that he is a well known tv personality putting it out there in media and I read this on Google news and on the evidence lately right or wrong my opinion is he didn't look himself and I have seen this rubbish before with coutihno call me paranoid but no one seen the coutihno saga coming then we all know what happened next, anyways bottom line is merson was putting it out there in media in black and white, me having my say on a LFC chat room are 2 completely different things , I think merson is a bit more influential than lil old hailstones don't u mate cheers.


1.) 28 Oct 2018 19:32:44
Merson is a prat who is paid to say things that are controversial to make Sly Sports seem interesting. Mostly, in my experience, he talks complete rubbish. They just like winding up Liverpool fans - don’t fall for it.

2.) 28 Oct 2018 20:12:55
I know too make it worse they had on euro news that we have an agreement with salah that he can leave at end of season and he replacing dembele nice one for that sky just get it out there, I am not saying I believe the article, but deep down I know we have too win things too show we are the real deal unfortunately that's what Chelsea, man city, man Utd, arsenal, have done for last 20 years with us picking the odd trophy up in last 28 years. Klopp though has done a brilliant job in getting us too this level and an our identity back .

3.) 28 Oct 2018 20:24:47
You’re paranoid.

4.) 28 Oct 2018 21:36:32
I need too lay of the tabaccy of wacky!

5.) 28 Oct 2018 22:43:22

If salah leaves he leaves. he's not taking liverpool with him when he goes.

Enjoy the football and let the chips fall where they fall.

Sadly football supportes have very little infulence in todays game. A player will say he's 100 percent happy and plays for the best supporters in the world while at the same time sounding out a move somewhere else.

Most overseas players have a dream to play for Barcelona or madrid. If they are good enough they eventually get their wish.

6.) 28 Oct 2018 23:14:57
Hailstones, you are free to believe whoever you want (including an incompetent, deluded pundit like Merson) and post whatever you want on this forum, as I am free to critique whatever Merson says or whatever it is you posted on here. It's called a debate, okay? So take a chill pill man cos you sound paranoid. Cheers, mate!

7.) 29 Oct 2018 07:24:08
Forget merson, great result weekend onwards an upwards .



27 Oct 2018 12:02:27
Think paul merson stirring the pot saying salah not happy and only matter of time before he leaves for Madrid, I must say he doesn't look happy his body language is off and something ain't right he is only human and entitled too b pissed off but I have noticed he doesn't stay at clubs for more than 2 seasons or hasn't maybe he's the type who can't settle, still if he wanted too leave we would get silly money for him and move on.


1.) 27 Oct 2018 13:16:09
Hailstones, you say they are stirring the pot YET you are buying the garbage they are selling with the last part of your comment. Make up your mind, pls. "He has not stayed at a club more than two season"? What does that even mean? You do know what context means right?

Salah moved to a better club after two years at Basel. Chelsea sent him packing after 18 months to Fiorentina and then moved to Roma when Fiorentina could not pay to take him permanently. He then moved to us after two years cos he wanted something to prove in the PL. What is surprising about that career path?

And the whole "wants to move the Madrid" stuff is all NONSENSE. That is old news and that does not come down to him alone. Cou had to wat two seasons before getting his move and look at the stuff he pulled to get out of LFC. RM can't even afford him cos we will get WAY more than Cou left for with Sergio Asensio as first installment. Pls, stop "stirring the pot" with that stuff, man cos none of it is true.

2.) 27 Oct 2018 13:29:50
Merson has no inside information and he has no idea about body language. Dirk Kuyt met and spoke with Mo after the midweek game this week and he said what a good guy Mo is as well as being a great footballer and how happy he is at Anfield and he said how much Mo feels settled with all the respect from the fans.

Ignore the pseudo analytical babble from the media pundits. Dirk said that he senses a belief at the club that we are going to win trophies.

As fans our job is to support and believe.

3.) 27 Oct 2018 13:47:51
BRover I totally agree with everything you said with exception of having a go at people for voicing their own opinion. That’s twice I’ve seen it today. If someone wants to comment then it’s a forum. They don’t need permission off you.

4.) 27 Oct 2018 14:07:45
How does Paul Merson keep his gig at Sky?

Answer - he comes out with controversial nonsense to stir the pot.

5.) 27 Oct 2018 14:21:26
Take no notice, Merson is full of it.

6.) 27 Oct 2018 14:31:40
This will be the last season that people talk about Liverpool as a stepping stone club. Those days are gone, we are European heavy weights with perhaps 5/ 6 clubs bigger than us now and we are still climbing.

I love salah but I think he is at his level at Liverpool, I think he can achieve everything he needs here.

He scored 45 goals last term and we are over a 1/ 4 of the way through this season and he is on 5. no wonder he is not the happiest man in the world. Speculating on his body language at this stage of the season is utterly pointless, it helps no one and we can never know the truth. What's the point?

Is he still giving his all for the club? Absolutely he is, what more do you want?

7.) 27 Oct 2018 16:45:06
1 goal. 2 assists. One was for Mane who he "doesn't pass to". Couldn't celebrate with his team mates quickly enough.

Shut up Merson.

8.) 27 Oct 2018 17:10:08
Salah looked pretty happy today, day off for the body language experts.

9.) 27 Oct 2018 17:32:01
Mane was beaming when salah scored and salah threw both arms in the air when mane scored the 2nd. There is no rift, a healthy competition.

I think we have tonnes of talent in midfield. Everyone can do a job, it's so exciting. 2nd lb needs replacing though. He was poor for Liverpool 3 years ago, now he is like a fish out of water. Hard worker and good lad but not good enough at the back. Probably the main reason our defence was so shaky for 2 years. It improved when vvd joined but that was also around the time moreno lost his spot. Vvd has to do the job of two men sometimes.

10.) 27 Oct 2018 18:33:22
Did you see how salah celebrating shaq goal aswell looked happy to me.

11.) 27 Oct 2018 18:35:41
JK how is BRover having a go. He's only pointing out a contridiction in the orignial statement. I think he was supporting the original statement from hailstones, at least that's how I read it. But, it's okay for us to disagree. Have a good one mate.

12.) 27 Oct 2018 18:41:54
Merson probably isn’t sober, so who cares what he thinks?

13.) 27 Oct 2018 18:46:05
Paul Merson also said Liverpool have no chance to win the league because the games against Cardiff are the games we lose and City win these games 4 or 5-0. I used to follow his predictions each week for the fun, and bet on them in the bookies, i never won all season haha. I wouldn't listen too much to what Paul Merson says.

14.) 27 Oct 2018 19:00:45
Stone like I said mate I actually agree with Brovers points and enjoy reading his comments. Just feel Sometimes it’s a little case of telling people what they can or can’t think.

15.) 27 Oct 2018 19:10:59
Honestly i saw the headline only referring to the person as a Sky Sports presenter. I looked at and immediately thought 1) that is total rubbish and 2) Paul Merson is definitely the one who said it before i’d even read the article. The man is so full of it i’m amazed he is even employed by them.

16.) 27 Oct 2018 19:50:42
Ok, fair point JK.

17.) 28 Oct 2018 00:06:09
JK, I enjoy reading your posts as well. Now, you don't needs anyone's and certainly NOT my permission, to post what you want to post on here. What I have issues with is people posting stuff that make NO logical sense. Hailstones' post is a walking, talking contradiction. He says Merson is stirring the pot then on the other side, actually "stirs the pot" by making statements laced with so much innuendo like "Salah does not settle well" (How would anyone know that? Or "He wants to go to RM". Again, how would anyone know that.

Sorry bro. You (not you personally) are free to post what you want as I am free to critique what you posted esp. if it is full of innuendo and contradictions. And the same courtesy applies to you and anyone else regarding whatever I post. It's not about me telling you what to post. It may be about you not being able to respond to my arguments that support my critique of your post. Cheers, mate.

18.) 28 Oct 2018 07:57:08
No worries BRover mate and like I said I agreed with you in terms with what you said and really enjoy your comments along with the rest of the posters on here. Keep them coming YNWA.

19.) 28 Oct 2018 08:46:54
Firstly I thought Salah really celebrated and was beaming with Shaq after Shaw’s goal, secondly, BRover, give it a break mate it’s a banter site, please let people have their opinion you are not the oracle mate.

20.) 28 Oct 2018 08:49:15
Well said jk23.

21.) 28 Oct 2018 10:04:43
Mcgoveb, Read my carefully worded response to JK23 (which he responded to and agreed with) and whind your neck in, mate cos no one is stopping you from posting your opinion. You are free to post your opinion as I and anyone else, am free to critique it and propose a rebuttal supported by facts, not innuendo. It's called healthy debate. If you can't stand people posting rebuttals to your comments (maybe cs you lack the arguments to support your opinions) then, don't post. The world is that simple, at times. Cheers, man.

22.) 28 Oct 2018 10:05:20
Likewise, JK23. Cheers, mate!



22 Oct 2018 22:22:50
Looking at the squad we are missing someone too carry the ball forward and link midfield with attack oxelaide Chamberlain was perfect for this and we miss him, which leads me too next issue would we rather have Curtis Jones in the squad than lallana can't help thinking he could offer more only thing lallana has on him is experience.


1.) 23 Oct 2018 08:55:28
We are definitely missing chamberlain but I think Keita, once he gets into the groove, can do the linking business.

I also feel Lallana along with struridge need to have a great season if we are to win anything.

2.) 23 Oct 2018 11:03:39
Is Hailstones Harry's new username? I can't keep up.

3.) 23 Oct 2018 13:04:46
I actually feel a little for Lallana. He’s being hung out to dry for a poor performance after a injury ravished 2 years. I can’t see him getting many starts for us to be honest and will more than likely move in the next window or 2. A few seasons ago he was integral to Klopp and in my opinion has always tried to give his best.

4.) 23 Oct 2018 15:02:46
Hopefully our strength-in-depth is such this season that we don't need to resort to youth players to fill holes. However, now that TAA and Gomez are established 'first teamers' and we can't really think of them as youth prospects any more, it would be brilliant to see some glimpses of the future and whomever Klopp is going to promote and bring through next; even if it's a few minutes off the bench when we have a good lead. Jones is a good shout. Personally I would say that Lallana still has something to offer this team though.

5.) 23 Oct 2018 19:02:49
OP, you are correct re: Ox. He and not Fekir, is the one we miss the most in that system that Klopp employed last season. He was the one who broke the lines from midfield, driving at the opposition's defence with pace, power and precision. He could lay a pass or shoot and score goals.

Now make no mistake about it, Naby is MORE than capable of doing that. Take the word from a guy who spent the whole of last season at RBL where he was dynamite in the second half of the season (after some issues in the first half of last season) . He has the ability to do EVERYTHING Ox can do and even more cos he is that kind of beast of a player.

The problem is that he is battling injuries and STILL needs time to settle cos even tho, RBL play the high press, Klopp's system is way more complicated than that and in fact, we don't even play the high press anymore, per se. As for Curtis Jones, I don't know if he's ready so I'll leave that to Klopp.



28 Sep 2018 22:07:33
Callum Liverpool fan Smith new world champion beats George Chelsea fan groves, hopefully a little omen for tomorrow hahaha, but nonetheless brilliant performance from Smith congratulations and Liverpool has another world champion 😁😁😁😁.


1.) 28 Sep 2018 22:23:49
Unreal how all 4 brothers became professional boxers and all good lads! Massive respect not many people give him a chance and a undog which give me a nice little return from the bookies.
Buzzing for the kid he deserves it!

2.) 28 Sep 2018 23:04:47
Looks like he will probably fight at anfield which will b amazing, must say also looking forward too bellew Vs usyk boss too have fighters from Liverpool fighting at the very top level, good revenge for Callum for his brother Paul as groves destroyed him, boss story though with the Smith brothers hope there kids carry the torch in the future .

I was replied too as being paranoid for mentioning the salah Barcelona thing also Madrid wanted him and paul merson spouting out in press salah looked unhappy, but ed 02 has been telling us for a long time salah and his agent flirting with the club's mentioned and we have seen this thing before with coutihno, Suarez, mascerano, Alonso etc so nothing surprises me with players loyalty too staying with us.

Firmane we need a bit of creativity in January in the fekir mold we needed that in summer as the midfield is good but limited and the attack can always go stale as we are seeing, left back we have Adam Lewis the Scouse Roberto carlos.

Suppose we all got spoiled last year with our attacking brilliance, this year we seem too get a goal or 2 then we sit back and rely on our new defensive quality, that midfield is good but doesn't unlock defences with some guile or score enough goals, but as said we joint top we have beat spurs away an got a point at Chelsea which is 4 extra points already.

He is needed for that bit of magic give him protection with 2 midfielders behind and let him pick passes make runs, the usual front 3 could benefit from his vision and craft, I also think Keita should b given a go there too run at people an bring others into play would b good for his confidence too free the shackles an have licence too attack , shame we never got fekir obviously.

Haha haha I am just taking one game at a time mate its a long season we need things too fit in place a bit more, but we couldn't wish for a better position too be in too make a challenge, if things click and we start really firing again whilst in a good position in 2nd half of season things could get very exciting, can't help feeling we need a killer in the box and creative midfielder that could help us in 2nd half of season .

I know mate its frustrating like u I am thinking is he unhappy or wat, cos usually when players are happy within themselves it comes out in there body language on the pitch, like if u compare the body language from the front 3 too last season it's just different, but look were we are in the league that speaks volumes for the potential hopefully that will come out .

Man city are different gravy, it's a well oiled winning machine reminds me of the teams pep had with Bayern and Barca, scary prospect will take some beating, they 2-0 up as I am texting easy peasy for them, the best chance we will have or anyone else of catching city is if they go late in champs league as they will have too rotate an it gets bit of a juggling act, we are doing great but sods law they a bit better!
