We have decided to change the Teams page to be the Liverpool Match Posts page, so look for posts talking about the latest Liverpool match there.

But most of the posts still go to the Liverpool Banter pages.

In order to view all of today's banter, you have to visit our liverpool banter 2 to liverpool banter 10 pages linked at the bottom of this page.

Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Other Posts page.

What a great game last night hope we batter Spurs as well as they are not good playing at their adopted home, common you Reds!

Morning everyone. Fantastic result last night. Let's hope we can keep it up and get a positive result at the weekend. I have a question for ed001 if you're about mate. If I can remember correctly we were heavily linked with Raul in the summer of 05, as a kid at the time I can remember being incredibly excited and getting my dad to buy a paper almost everyday to try and keep updated. Do you know if there was any ever truth in the rumours? I absolutely think we'd have won a couple of titles with him leading the line, awesome player. Thanks for your time on the site.
Cheers.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - there was truth in the interest and the possibility, as he was a bit of an arse behind the scenes there at times. There was a portion of the club that wanted him out, but they feared for the backlash from the fans if Raul was sold, so it ended up going nowhere.}

I wouldn't expect too much for the spurs game. we always look a little off the pace after a mid week ucl game. I guess they had one too. I think we will win but wouldn't be surprised if we drew. it is why we have drawn so many games, ucl takes it out of you and you get much less time for full training.

So how could they win?

A few thoughts from the game

- Again a good balance to the side with a disciplined deep midfielder to screen the defence and another clean sheet with almost zero chances given away (not playing the best team but you can only play who's in front of you)
- I expected Klopp to rotate more but hats off for broadly sticking with his first team to build on the Man Utd performance. I expect the confidence boost of the 7 goals will be more important than had he saved legs for against Tottenham
- Salah excellent yet again, but so were rest of the front three, and Milner looked lively (might be a threat to Gini? )
- Can had a good game from deep, I think that's his best position to be honest
- Good play for the back 4 and nice for TAA to get minutes
- Solanke looks better than Sturridge
- nice for Ox to get on the scoresheet

Overall a great day and another step up the ladder of looking solid at the back while dangerous going forward. Let's hope we can beat Tottenham then I think we're in very good shape having played most of our top 6 rivals already.

Milner is a threat to Henderon and did more than what Hendo did all season! Can was the key. He starts the attack from the deep. Only player capable of putting a tackle when needed. He is so powerfully built that he skip pass players when charging forward. His only downfall is his discipline and awareness ( when to charge and when not to ) He will excell alongside a proper holding midfielder maybhe at Juventus.
Coutinho was simply excellent. His vision to pick Moreno, Salah, Milner, or any outfield player is what place him inside the elite!

Asked in the morning and Well how many think now we will batter spurs 6-0?
I never lie. It will happen.

{Ed025's Note - spurs are not maribor akshit...whoa back a bit there mate..

They are not even Utd. They are way better than Utd.

Tough game on Sunday. Hopefully they will turn up and play and not park a bus.

17 Oct 2017 22:30:37
Honestly, I've been saying for a few weeks now (since the Spartak draw) that we are going to hammer someone soon and after the United draw (which I was hoping would be the team we hammer) I said it'll be Spurs.

It seemed to be tonight instead, but I still believe we'll beat Spurs comfortably 3-1.

Agree1 4Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:32:46
I also think we'll beat them but not predicting this one, I think it'll be a close game, it certainly won;t be easy but i reckon we'll edge it.

We usually do well against spurs. I would love us to hammer them as we are the better team and they need knocking off their high horse. they are lucky to have harry kane. without him they're average.

What a result! yeah, let's get rid of klopp! he doesn't know what he's doing! only getting us the biggest score we have ever had in the worlds elite football competition.

The confidence will be back. chuffed as you like. nice one ox, lovely taken goal. deadly. some of the best football I have ever watched. we are the second best team in the league. I think city are top at the moment. Utd came to anfield and played as if they were burnley, parking the bus, coz they know, if you play we will beat you, we are better than you. we are better than arsenal (4 0) better than spurs, better than Chelsea imo and better than utd. I can honestly see us pushing on know. we have a solid base to push on from and we have an almost fully fit squad. Lallana due back and that can only be good.

Agree1 2Disagree

18 Oct 2017 02:23:35
I don’t know what is more fanciful you thinking we will score 6 or Spurs will score 0. I fancy us to get a result against them, 2-1 for me.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Oct 2017 04:31:34
It is simple we were bound to score. And since we are just like that nothing or everything.
Everything phase has started. Spurs will try to play against us. But unfortunately they don't have speed in that team. They will get battered.
So 6-0, it is that kind of season.

TBH I feel we aren't much far from city in terms of first team. Bad defenders, great attackers. Ours weren't scoring much but it was just matter of time.
Start ox in mid ahead of gini/ hendo and I think spurs are there for the taking.

Agree0 2Disagree

18 Oct 2017 05:49:24
i agree with smeg head. 2 1, or 1 0. is it at home? if so, it could be 4 0? happened last year (or was it the year before 5 1?) They will try and play 100% and we will win. it is a matter of being clinical in front of goal. it is no exaggeration to say, if Liverpool took even 75% of their decent chances we would've won nearly every game scoring 5/ 6 goals. we have been creating the chances and that is why I have not lost faith. Newcastle was the only game this season that I thought we were poor, firmino makes a massive difference and the premier league has started to really take notice of the lad. he is clearly growing as a player and getting better all the time, he was immense today. I got a thumbs down for saying we are the 2nd best team in the league right now, SEVEN NIL. did you not watch that football? it was amazing, like watching Barcelona 3 years ago. I know they're not the strongest team in the group but they had a lot to do to get into the ucl proper. they aren't rubbish, although they were simply blown away.

Another clean sheet for the boys. 2 in a row now. I think Moreno is one of the best left backs in the league right now

last season our bench wasn't that strong and it showed. we were thin on first team quality. now we have hendo, the ox, Sturridge, solanke, gomes, migs and woodburn. with mane and Lallana to come! we need to turn this in to a winning streak. and by Christmas we can be firmly in the top four. oh and grujic and ings.

Superred, My local non league club would have given Maribor a game, calm down son!

{Ed001's Note - they got through the qualifying rounds to make it into the Champions League proper, your local non-league club must be a bit special if this hyperbole is even close to being true.}

18 Oct 2017 07:02:04
Would be very happy with 3 points against Spurs. Not bothered about margin of victory.
Maribor were unbeaten at home in 14 matches including Spartak Moscow. They can't be that easy to beat 0-7.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Oct 2017 07:58:23
Ed001 My local non league club is special, Maribor aren't.

{Ed001's Note - no one said they are, but your comment is idiotic and you just make yourself seem a bit of a tool with it. Disrespectful tool at that. They did not qualify by being crap, so please stop disrespecting a side that have worked damn hard to get there. They have achieved far more than you ever will.}

Wheres all the negative bashers now? You lot know who you are, 0-7 that's all a have to say.

17 Oct 2017 22:12:54
Yeah i here you mate, but a tell you ed025 its one hell of a start don't you think? Yes on paper we should beat them but by god it wasnt just a win, a very convincing one at that.

Agree3 1Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that knuckles mate..

17 Oct 2017 22:19:43
the people your calling negative bashers are only giving there opinions on what there seeing week in week out and I could be one of those bashers as I have had a go at the team and manager i've also praised them too. and i thought Milner give a lot more tonight than Henderson and would play him against spurs decent performance tonight but spurs will be tough but I fancy us to beat them.

Agree3 7Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:21:38
We are not out of the woods yet, Knuckles BUT I agree woith you, it was a convincing win away from home in the CL and that is nothing to sneeze at. Credit to the boys and Klopp for the good result.

Yes, I'm with you there mate.

But that bloody defence didn't contribute with a single goal! 🤡.

Agree3 1Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:31:38
Hopefully this gives the lads the confidence they need especially in front of goal. Spurs also had a very good result tonight so they will also be buzzing on Sunday. Our defence going up against an in form Kane and Eriksen will be their biggest challenge since city. If we win on Sunday then that could be the kickstart this season needed.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:32:47
Redsteve if you are one and? Just coz your one ain't going to change my mind, i support liverpool and go to many games so supporting lfc means players managers and owners win lose or draw, i certianly don't come on here to bitch when we lose but i also read many bitching posts, so yeah when we win convincingly away in the cl i am here to gloat like it or lump it pal.

Agree0 3Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:32:56
knuckles are you looking for us (negative posters) here im.
yes i was a good game for us, win the next 3 games and you made me a beliver from doubter.

Jayden one game at a time we won tonight so enjoy the result instead of trying to put a downer on it, some posters will just never be happy.

Agree1 1Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:44:57
Tonight looked easy because we were so dominant but the fact that no other team has ever done that to them in Europe before and they were unbeaten at home this season tells you just how good we were tonight. We always make the opposition look poor when we play well but they are a much better side than we allowed them to be tonight.

Agree2 1Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:47:49
Knuckles what part of my comment is putting a downer on it 🤦🏻‍♂.

17 Oct 2017 22:51:09
Crazy horse, if we lost the next 3 believe you and me the 4th al still be in the stands watching the match, because supporting a team means to follow a team thru thick and thin! Have you heard the saying we win together we lose together? And i will continue to do so come on you mighty reds!

Agree1 1Disagree

17 Oct 2017 23:11:37
KNUCKLES
I don't come on here to bitch mate just to give an opinion like you i've been to quite a few games been supporting the reds for 45yrs and if u read my first post i said it was a good performance tonight and I fancy us to beat spurs. all of us on here have different opinions and I respect your views too knuckles enjoy the spurs game and hopfully 3 points.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 23:31:47
Redsteve in my views it will be 3 points am sure of it hopfully might see in in the sandon brfore a game soon for a pint lad.

Agree0 1Disagree

17 Oct 2017 23:34:57
Jayden instead of enjoying tonights result you have to bring the spurs game up why? We won tonight let's think of spurs at the weekend eh, but for now re-joice in our great performance.

Agree0 2Disagree

17 Oct 2017 23:48:59
The Seville score is more of a shock to me,
Unbelievable Jeff!

I'm delighted for Ox, getting your first goal will ease the pressure a bit,

If you get a chance watch Kietas performance for Leipzig, He looks absolutely top top class,

A Great night in many ways,

knuckles we are not talking about support here? you and your so called positive friends have zero right to judge my love or commitment to liverpool. yes i think Kloop is not the best manager in the world but that hasn't changed my love or my negative minded friends love for Lfc. anf its one good game in last 7 so let's not be too exited.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Oct 2017 03:31:01
unbelievable! some of the finest football I have ever seen. And it was a champions league game, away from home. UCL proper.

The dam has burst I reckon, I think spurs will be quite easily dispatched actually. Lallana and mane to come back. amazing, on cloud 9.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Oct 2017 05:55:29
yeah, I forgot to mention Milner. He was f****ng brilliant tonight. I love Hendo and you can't really compare the two. I thought milner was more creative and more focused on getting the ball forward rather than playing safe and just tidying up. I'm glad he had a good game because a few people have been doubting him here recently, even myself a little but he proved tonight he still has enough in the engine to play some lush football. good on ya Milly.

17 Oct 2017 22:00:52
Why is it whenever we win easily everyone talks about how poor the opposition is? Because when we are at it we stifle them so much they make error after error. Great performance tonight well done lads!

Agree6 1Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:25:23
Ings IMO, it is cos some of our fans wallow in so much self pity that they simply cannot bring themselves to saying that we did well. They'd rather make excuses for the opposition than give our boys whatever amount of credit they deserve just to satisfy such a defeatist attitude. Just my take.

Agree5 3Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:32:27
You can only beat what's in front of you so for that alone we can only praise the lads.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:32:56
They just weren't a very good team. I would doubt there is a poorer team in the competition. Let's not fool ourselves but what was impressive was our ability to put the chances away and not even give them a sniff. Let's still enjoy the win and looking at the table- the goal difference as well.

Agree0 3Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:37:49
I think it’s like a defence mechanism. If you constantly bitch and moan about how bad we are then when we lose it gives you a sense of satisfaction that you were right rather than having that gut wrenching feeling I get when we lose. When we do well it’s because the other team are poor just so they can justify their comments keeping their guard up in preparation for the next poor result. It’s quite sad really.

Agree4 1Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:51:48
Aoe that’s exactly what I mean. When we play well we make the opposition look bad because we don’t let them breathe. A 7-0 score line away in the Champions League vertually never happens. It’s our biggest away win in Europe ever! That alone should tell you what a great performance that was.

Agree1 1Disagree

18 Oct 2017 00:29:39
I think any other team in the competition beats them comfortably tonight. I'm not making light of a thoroughly professional performance but I am looking at it objectively. Klopp picked a strong team, he made some nice substitutions thinking ahead and we didn't let our heads drop. On the other hand, we'll likely never face a team who will capitulate as badly as this one for the next decade or so.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it was not as simple as that, if we had not scored early then it would have been different. That killed their gameplan and forced them to come out and play.}

17 Oct 2017 21:46:23
Top job from the lads, I was doubtful at the start about Milner but on that performance we look more balanced with him instead of Hendo.
Just a word on Moreno, How any LFC fan can't be proud as punch of him for knuckling down and getting a shirt is beyond me, he looks more assured all the time, I know he didn't have much defending to do but he's only 24 and can only get better, And a side note on Robertson, has he been kidnapped or something?
Top result YNWA.

Agree9 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 21:59:23
Very professional performance by the lads tonight. We were expected to win and did so comfortably.
I totally agree with Supergrob about Moreno. He's coming on leaps and bounds and producing some great performances. Long may he continue. we'll done lad!

Agree3 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:02:04
Emre Can was brilliant tonight! You just don’t knock off the ball from him. He is a proper tank! He has a great touch as well.

Agree1 5Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:07:11
It was a good performance by the players. I criticised the attack a few days ago because I felt if we were more clinical, the defense would be under less pressure.
Admittedly, it was a woeful Maribur, but they'd no attempt at goal in the 2nd half. Not even off target. NONE. Despite the fact that we took the foot off the gas a little bit. They wouldn't risk going forward because they knew they would concede.
That's what I want to see from the attack every week. Be clinical and stop the opponent from coming forward.

Agree0 0Disagree

Harry is that a positive post my friend, i take my hat of and bow sir, well done!

17 Oct 2017 22:29:29
Spot on, boys. Very professional performance from our boys. Make no mistake about it, Maribor as poor as they were (and good heavens they were rank dross), took points off Spartak and Sevilla only put two past them in Sevilla so we needed not just a win, a convincing win and we got that. Credit to Klopp and the boys for getting the job done.

As for Moreno, today's game even tho he was not threatened, showed why Robbo has a fight on his hands to keep Moreno out.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:55:45
Knuckles Harry is only praising Can so he can moan when he joins Juve in Jan or the summer. It’s so predictable.

Agree1 1Disagree

18 Oct 2017 00:37:20
You can't possibly suggest Milner in for Henderson after that performance. Suggest it after a decent performance against actual opposition. I'm in no way knocking the lad- I'm using common sense. I find it difficult to believe Henderson would not have had an outstanding performance tonight with that much time and space and complete disinterest from the opposition. If anything I thought gini could have done more given the opposition.

Agree1 1Disagree

18 Oct 2017 01:52:11
Knuckles and Bingo, harry is one of the posters who knows this game very well. he can praise one if needed and critisize when required. just beacuse Kloop won few thropys in germany and won todays game comfortably doesnot means he should be worshiped as few of you guys do. Harry has more ball then all the other posters who come out only when we win the game and when we are loosing they hide back under the rock they call home.

Agree1 1Disagree

17 Oct 2017 21:44:06
Okey us battering Maribor, but Spartak battering Sevilla is insane.
We finish first in this group!

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Oct 2017 22:33:13
There are no easy games in the CL anymore. Appoel took points off BVB, Spartak thumped Sevilla and Maribor took points off Spartak. The fact that we dominated all three of our our group rivals shows how good we actually are as a team.

17 Oct 2017 22:51:43
Unfortunately Bingo mate football is a results business and if like you mention we lose on Sunday then that would be 2 wins in 10 games. I won't be calling for Klopps head but again I would be asking questions. But anyway let's cross that bridge if we come to it. For now let's enjoy the feeling of tonight's win.
