In fairness Ed0333, I don't think it's hubaris - we've proven that we are capable of beating anyone, despite having also proven that we are there for a thumping if we get it wrong against you. But everyone recognises that no match is going to be easy at this point and no matter what, we will have our work cut out for us if we want to progress. That being said, some teams left are the ruling super-powers of Europe and some teams left are very good, well organised squads. Despite both groups being hard games, they are not equal to each other. One thing we need to get out the mindset of though is hoping that we will have the element of surprise. We won our group scoring a record number of goals, and are now in the quarter finals. No-one will be taken by surprise anymore.

{Ed0333's Note - I hear what your saying fella but I’m a naturally cautious guy and have low excepectations and anything else is a pleasant surprise. You make really good points though mate. Let’s hope the fairytale lasts a little bit longer. I would love Klopps first European title to be with us. As I said too Ed’s 001 earlier the ‘doubters to believers’ quote will go down in Anfield folklore if he does.

I think you’re right to be pragmatic ed - this is the most exciting I’ve seen us play for many years barring 13/ 14 perhaps but we shouldn’t get carried away though as were only 75% through the rebuild as I see it.

That last element of unpredictable results against the top sides is in large part down to midfield for me. I can see why it’s happened this way, but our best midfield for a balance of defence/ control/ pressing and goal threat is for me still Hendo, Gini and Lallana, yet against Man Utd we had Can, Milner and Ox.

Starting from front to back and analyzing the work still to be done

- we have one of the most exciting front threes in a long time but still no impact player off the bench. Can Ings be that player? Jury still out for me.
- our Midfield is OK but for all his recent decent performances Ox is hardly the finished article, I don’t see Milner competing with the best midfielders in Europe (he’s brilliant in some games but can go walkabout and scores very rarely) . Hendo is fantastic but unfortunately injury prone. Gini is still for me the one we should be playing in the big games but hasn’t exactly been blowing the doors off either and Lallana has lost form while Can is still young and inconsistent. We are perhaps in the top 10-15 in terms of midfield but not in the top 5
- Likewise at the back, I think VVD was massive for us and Karius and Lovren looking immeasurably better for him coming in, but we aren’t water tight just yet. We also have a solid LB that’s still adapting, and a very young (even if very talented) RB

Overall in terms of changes next season I think Keita could be revolutionary for us, adding drive, bite and goals from midfield which we sorely lack. I hope we see Robbo, Karius, Lovren, TAA continue their rapid improvement in form and maturity, and hopefully Hendo can stay fit. If we can add an impact player off the bench as well, with goals from midfield or out wide (Lemar? ) then we’ll be 90% of the way there.

{Ed0333's Note - I agree about the sexiness of our play and carving out chances for fun. We were incredibly hard to beat under Rafa, he was my hero but it was turgid football for the most part. Klopps way is so easy on the eye and I totally agree that an upgraded midfield will yield even more success and hopefully the elusive Premiership. The midfield is mediocre at best and Keita will drastically improve it and change the dynamic but to be fair long John silver would improve the dynamic. The attack is exemplarary and the defense can hold its own if they play their best but the midfield lets us down. Like yourself I see the potential in this team.


2.) 15 Mar 2018 07:33:36
I am like u ed think the worst an anything else a bonus sad but necessary after years of let downs an pain, it's obvious this year we seem better against the smaller teams an not as well against top 6, hope this doesn't effect us.

{Ed0333's Note - hopefully next season we’ll get it right. We’ll beat the good teams and the crappy ones.

Any news of Flanagan getting a new contract? Is it even being discussed?

hjikle

1.) 11 Feb 2015 22:31:14
Hope he gets one, he worked hard last year and showed he had the quality to be in the first team. That goal against Spurs is still a highlight from last season for me.


2.) 12 Feb 2015 10:25:51
One wonder goal and he get's a new contract ? Rather cash in on him and bring another youngster through.


3.) 12 Feb 2015 10:32:07
I think it would be wise to see how he does when he returns from injury.

A full season out is a long time especially at his age.


4.) 12 Feb 2015 13:34:34
Actually It wasn't simply one wonder goal, he played brilliantly when he came in, made Johnson look more of a mug than he actually is, showed that he has what it takes at the top level as he was consistant, solid and worked hard, the goal against spurs was the icing on the cake, as was his reaction.


5.) 12 Feb 2015 17:29:04
Agree Mr D


6.) 13 Feb 2015 07:45:01
He was our only defender last year that actually looked like he had any intention of defending and made opposition players think twice about running at him. He was the best positioned, most disciplined, most energetic and most effective defensive player we had last year. And that was playing on the wrong side.


7.) 13 Feb 2015 20:29:52
If carra was still about he would have learned so much. I remember one of his first games seeing carra talking him through the game, where to be and where to keep the attackers. Shame.


8.) 13 Feb 2015 22:20:00
He played brilliantly last season, but still think it would be wise to see how he recovers after being out for a season.


9.) 14 Feb 2015 12:48:58
I have mentioned this in the past, no the likelyhood is he won't be offered a new contract, he will be given a chance to prove himself in the next couple of months before the decision is made, read my last comment to find out why. Also BR thinks wisdom is a better option as he can fit into the three at the back aswel as a full back


10.) 14 Feb 2015 22:58:50
I think his time is up. Another Martin Kelly Saga.

Anyone seen the Miguel Delaney (The Independent) tweeting this morning? Someone has been reading this site!

hjikle

1.) 21 May 2018 15:32:16
Just saw that mate how very original of him.


2.) 21 May 2018 15:48:53
Or he got the same information from the same source.


3.) 21 May 2018 16:18:00
He doesn’t have maccas source Smeg. It’s been proven “reliable “ journalists take this site as “their” info.


4.) 21 May 2018 17:52:23
Benny, first you don’t know Macca’s source, so how can you possibly know Miguel Delaney doesn’t have the same source?
Second where has this been proven? Show me and I will believe you.


5.) 21 May 2018 18:34:32
I know exactly who maccas source is actually, however, it will go to the grave with me I’m afraid.


6.) 21 May 2018 18:36:04
Oh and as for it’s been proven. The Ed’s have put out nonsense stories to see who takes their info, within 24 hours “sky sources” were reporting on the made up story.

You really shouldn’t assume things about people Smeg.


7.) 21 May 2018 18:52:03
So it’s beyond the realms of possibility that Delaney could know the same person? You really shouldn’t assume things about people Benny. I guess your definition of ‘reliable’ journalists and mine differ greatly, I would never call Sky Sports reliable.


8.) 21 May 2018 19:24:28
I guess you don’t understand how sarcastic quotes work lol. Dr evils laser beam must of been over your head 🙈.


9.) 21 May 2018 20:19:14
Hahaha love it Benny. Glad to see your posts today, we don't see them enough though these days mate :) .


10.) 21 May 2018 20:44:29
Been a busy bee Salah. Will try to post a bit more but I just end up in arguments and I’m trying to change my ways 🤣.

{Ed025's Note - leopards and spots and all that benny.. :)


11.) 21 May 2018 22:06:37
If a blue can turn to red over the course of a season like you have ed, then anything is possible.

{Ed025's Note - now now benny...that is a malicious rumour!.. :)


 

 

14 May 2018 10:27:16
So interesting fact about our defense - since the big loss to Spurs, it's been the best defense in the PL. Not Chelsea, not City, not United - us. It's been so good in fact that we finished the season with the 4th best defense and the third highest number of clean sheets. The turnaround since that day has been outstanding and if we can maintain that solidity, we can really hit the league as a priority next season and reasonably expect some joy.

hjikle

1.) 14 May 2018 13:45:26
I was wondering who has the most clean sheets since Karius took over full time.

Harry Wilson has capped off his impressive loan spell at Hull by being named PFA Championship Player of the Month. Good work lad.

1.) 09 May 2018 17:14:00
Which probablybmeans we can sell him off to Bournemouth or Palace for 20mil!


 

 

18 Apr 2018 09:19:15
Does anyone else find time really dragging at the moment? I mean I know I'm distracting myself from other problems but since Saturday evening I've just been sitting here thinking 'okay, now its 160 hours till the next game. '. Just me?

hjikle

1.) 18 Apr 2018 09:52:01
Nah not just you mate, same here, this week is taking the piss.


2.) 18 Apr 2018 10:26:20
Phew. 74 hours left btw.


3.) 18 Apr 2018 10:52:23
I'm already anxious for the Champions league final.


4.) 18 Apr 2018 13:39:06
We've had midweek games the past couple of weeks do now that we have a full week between games it feels like an eternity.


 

 

16 Apr 2018 13:27:50
Not strictly LFC related (but will soon be) - the Manolas injury that those of us watching their derby yesterday will have noticed has turned out to be cramp. As it stands, he will be fine to play us.

A small and very unsportsmanlike part of me is swearing very loudly.

hjikle

1.) 16 Apr 2018 13:30:55
Would rather beat teams when they’re at full strengtg 👍.


2.) 16 Apr 2018 13:51:05
I see that point, and would never wish injury on any player. Okay, a few players, but never just because they are our opposition. But it's a champions league semi final and I'll take whatever the universe will give us!


3.) 16 Apr 2018 20:48:12
You play who you play and that's it, Hjikle.

No one said it was outrageous that he wasnt picked. It was that he wasnt picked and that a keeper (in fact two keepers but Neuer is more understandable who has basically not played this season was picked while he wasnt.

I'm surprised either was chosen, but if I was choosing one then it would certainly be Karius over Trapp.

Think it would be a poor move. Scotland is a joke league and we need the lad playing against quality opposition if he's to improve.

As much as I never like to see a promising young player leave, can't say much against a young player dropping down a level in the hopes of sustained, regular game time. Hopefully he flied down there and returns one day, and good luck to him.

Sorry but why are we needing to improve our defense? Maybe some greater depth, particularly on the right, but for 2/ 3rds of the season its been the most solid defense in the league. Despite your 'bin everyone every year' policy, how do you improve on 'best'?

Wouldn't want to second guess the specifics of Klopps tactics, but I'd be shocked if he varied from the tactics and setup that got us here. I think the formation change in the final game was partly due to losing Milner for the match but also just trialing things to make sure we had a decent backup plan.
