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.

With our site (no Ed002). More posts will be going up on that Liverpool FC Banter site from now on.

77 - No need to wait for the truth to come out, it’s all there in the official FA report. And I am talking about facts, not opinions or media lies. The FA were determined to make an example of Suarez come what may and that is exactly what they did. In the end I was glad to see him leave Liverpool but that was because of the biting, diving, etc not the false accusations of racism.

{Ed025's Note - you have to leave it now mate...your making yourself look very foolish..

Suarez is a little brown stain on our history, indefensible little rat.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 21:26:40
Suarez wouldn't even get in our team, and he has far more baggage than Firmino, Mane and Salah combined. Why are we still defending a racist, violent, petulant cheat? I appreciate they gave him a longer ban than anyone else has had for the same offence but so what? He still did it and i am embarrassed i ever backed him. How can people still have the red tinted specs over this?

Is it just me or were those 3 games today dire? Was really looking forward to seeing 3 great games but was disappointed on all 3 counts! The worst was Man United v Chelsea. I sympathise with MU fans over the state of the football. And what has happened to Arsenal? Man City were ok-ish in the first half and great in the second half but Arsenal were dire! Think Gary Neville was OTT but on the Arsenal page they agree with him. A great Saturday (Liverpool, Scotland, Ireland) but a poor Sunday. As a footie fan I expect better!

Interesting names in the Under 23s tonight.

Clyne at RB and surprising to see Joe Gomez is having a game at CB. Bit of warming up for that role in the future perhaps?

Solanke is also playing, he could really do with some goals for a bit of confidence!

Agree1 1Disagree

25 Feb 2018 19:07:41
Bit late with the post. Solanke got a hat-trick! Chuffed for him.

Agree5 1Disagree

25 Feb 2018 19:32:57
Nice for his confidence. Did you watch the game? if so how did Gomez do in the CB position?

Agree0 1Disagree

25 Feb 2018 19:51:29
Planned to watch it but got the kick off time all wrong! Keen to hear if anyone did watch. Hopefully I can track down some highlights.

Bit odd to see Gomez in the Under 23s but nice at the same time that he got some game time at CB.

Agree0 1Disagree

25 Feb 2018 21:06:59
I haven't been able to watch them much at all this season sadly. If you remember, I was doing weekly updates on the U23s and giving match reports but time doesn't allow that anymore. Someone said they would take over for me but that hasn't happened unfortunately.

question for the eds, with City after winning the League Cup, Jamie Redknapp said that this team as the potential to dominate the league and europe and that other PL teams should be very afraid, so my question is, how far do ye feel Liverpool are away from this City team, it was mentioned on Sly sports that Liverpool could be potential Champions. So goalkeeping issues aside, or assuming we get a top class keeper, how close or far away is this team?
Thanks Eds.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed025's Note - not very far away i would say kev, once naby comes and a top class keeper then i believe liverpool will be serious competition for city, injuries could be a factor of course as i dont think the reds squad has a great deal of depth, but as a team they are not far off mate..

25 Feb 2018 20:29:51
Ed25.I really do admire your assessment of our team, especially as you’re an Everton fan, fair play to you mate.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - im a football fan drogie and just say it as i see it mate..

25 Feb 2018 20:33:57
Starting 11 not far at all

Squad miles away.

Agree0 1Disagree

25 Feb 2018 21:02:52
Thanks for the reply Ed25, I tend to agree with your assessment. I do think Naby will be a massive player for us, hopefully we can get that top class keeper in. I think possibly another CB but I feel VVD will improve every cb we have at the club. Our defence already looks to be improving with every game. But i do agree, our squad depth still needs improving, but as far as recruitment has gone under Klopp, we have drastically improved I feel compared to recent years. Hopefully we continue on that trend.


Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i think you will kev...and its breaking my heart mate.. :)

25 Feb 2018 21:24:14
We are not far away at all from City, as Ed25 has said. We need to get in more players in the mold of our quality front three in other areas of the pitch to help us get to that next level. Also, consistency needs to be improved and we need to SERIOUSLY cut down on points dropped from winning positions as that is what is killing us (linked with consistency issues) .

As per squad depth, I recently saw Pep making a fool of himself, saying his team lacks depth as he only has 16 players to choose from right after they drew with Burnley. Yeah, go figure. The manager of the richest club, is complaining of lack of depth. As for our depth, we need to upgrade that as well and the GK, we'll have to see what happens cos if Allison is a non starter and Navas (I pray, does not come) then Karius is who Klopp will turn to as he signed him and IMO, STILL wants him to be no. 1 BUT Karius will have to keep getting it done till season's end and he's on pace to achieve that.

25 Feb 2018 18:57:37
Kept talking about managers when asked about players. It was just obvious that he was there to advertise himself. Did 5 minutes talking about himself then went to a story about West brom. I think it's great to have managers on it but it is just too blatant sometimes.

Liverpool v West Ham - A Liverpool Perspective

good review Ed001 I do wish we would stop being sloppy when we have a big lead at 3-0 with 30mins left we should not be letting soft goals in, if it had got to 3-2 we would have gotten nervous, however once it became 4-1 that was the time to bring the subs on, solanke for example needs more than 3mins to show what he can do.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I did think the same about subs, but it takes them so bloody long to get ready these days Klopp might well have told them to do so the second the 4th went in!}

25 Feb 2018 18:36:14
Can't blame Liverpool for things that could have happened, we shipped 1 goal not 2 or 3.

I think we are all agreed that with such an attacking style we are always going to leave spaces. Robbo was some people's man of match but he can't do everything. We let in a goal, so what? We scored 4.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 18:51:05
Good review ed. Not saying karius is the answer but I don't feel so panicked with him in goal. Maybe given a run of games he can step up another level. Hope so.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 19:50:52
I was at the match yesterday. Sitting in the Kop and I was impressed with Karius he had 2 saves of note from Artunovic both were decent hits from the striker. I was more impressed by a wee ball he played quickly while still lying on the ground. Seems like nothing but if it was Simon he would certainly have stood up then looked around and West Ham would have been in a more defensive shape . Overall it was a good team performance and Milner was motm for me .

Agree2 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 20:15:55
Thanks ed1. Didn’t get to see the game yesterday so always good to read your review. Nice to know Karius is still impressing. Hopefully he can nail that number 1 spot and make it his permanently.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

25 Feb 2018 20:29:57
we need to stop switching off is all im saying 3-0 up 30mins left, the fans can relax the players need to concentrate for the full 90mins, we saw against man city what happened when we gave them some encouragement, the better teams will punish you, if we can improve our game management then we can start achieving things imo.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 13:15:54
Hey ed002,
About this time last year you said that Klopp briefed certain members of the media about transfer targets etc. You said yourself this was a bad move and I agree 100%, but does Klopp see it as a bad move and will he be doing it again this season do you think?
The reason I ask is because Paul Joyce, one of those that was briefed last year, came out with a bit of transfer news last night and mentioned a couple of names even.
Thanks in advance!

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It backfired on him and I would think that the club would be livid if he did it again.)

25 Feb 2018 16:41:10
Thanks for the response ed.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 16:51:02
its February the summer is way off, the only thing klopp needs to be doing atm is making sure Liverpool finish in the top 4, we need to learn from our past mistakes, not go on repeating them.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 17:41:20
Klopp has learnt. He has kept the squad fitness levels much higher that they were last season.

Appreciate De Gea is one of the best in the world and has credit in the bank but if Karius let that in the pundits including Carra would smash him.

Agree12 1Disagree

25 Feb 2018 15:15:29
also if he had tipped that shot on to the bar we would not have heard the last of it, it just goes to show how irrelevant football pundits are, they have a agenda to work to given to them by there paymasters. De Gea as you say is still a brilliant goalkeeper and one mistake won't change that, let's hope we can benefit from a rare error from him on march 10th.

Agree10 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 15:27:41
Yeah but to be fair DDG has been doing incredible for years, Karius has played well for weeks. Karius needs a few more good months before the critics will get off his back.

Agree7 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 15:57:41
You earn the right to escape criticism on a poor day. And that guy has earned the right.

Agree8 0Disagree

25 Feb 2018 16:14:34
Agree with you there lfc8 however the job of a pundit is to call it as he sees it, saying De Gea made a mistake is not saying he is a poor goalkeeper, pundits should not pick and choose which players get a easy ride and which ones don't, that's what drives me mad they are so inconsistent, long may karius's form continue btw, shame he lost his clean sheet yesterday.

Agree5 1Disagree

25 Feb 2018 16:31:31
This has to be the most boring game of the season!

Agree1 1Disagree

25 Feb 2018 18:58:59
I think we're confusing the pundits role. They're there to drive debate, discussion and CLICKS! They are the visual form of clickbait!

Ah well, hard luck. But we create our won destiny, not rely on others to slip.
Forget what Spurs do. LFC's target should be to win all matches we play.

well said IB win all our remaining matches and a top 4 finish is ours, we are in a very good position let's keep it up.
