You can’t take posts seriously when they can’t even get basic facts right.

Was at the game today. Great result and keeps us in the mix for second and pole position in the race for top 4.

Three things I saw from the game today:
1. Robertson is our best LB since Steven Finnan. He's non stop all game, massive engine always wants the ball up and down that right side all day.

2. Emre Can can leave, he slows the ball down so much. Stagnated our forward momentum on a number of occasions. His vision and pass8ng also aren't up to scratch compared to Hendo.

3. Final point on the atmosphere. How can the fans expect to create a good atmosphere whenever someone tries to stand up the stewards are over to tell them to sit down. Really disappointing to see fans trying to be passionate and not being allowed.

Finnan was a right back So I just stopped reading.

24 Feb 2018 20:25:40
I guess the OP is meaning that he was reliable like Finnan was.

24 Feb 2018 17:29:41
Good result front three at ease up there!
Only complaint for me is their goal, vvd Didn't have a great desire to get back and keep a clean sheet. When Robertson leaves that area, the cb's need to be aware.

Agree1 Disagree1

24 Feb 2018 17:48:56
For me that goal was more to do with a lack of nous in midfield.

24 Feb 2018 19:26:05
Spot on MrShankly Emre looses the ball and in a second Antonio is one on one with Karius.

23 Feb 2018 17:33:04

Why's ward not been given a chance? He did great on loan at both Aberdeen and Huddersfield, it was not his fault we got knocked out the league cup when he played, klopp picked a week side. I don't get the mentality of bringing the lad back and not using him when the others have not impressed. And Wales need him playing to b honest.

Agree1 Disagree3

23 Feb 2018 17:57:58

Because as much as everyone would love him to be our saviour, Aberdeen and huddesfield are probably where he belongs untill he does something of note. He just isn't what we need in goal right now. And probably never will be. He should move on. And so should we. We are Liverpool not Aberdeen.

23 Feb 2018 18:34:26

Why do Wales need him playing? They have nothing going on this summer.

23 Feb 2018 20:22:38

aussieMARK and yet we’re being linked with the rancidly awful Kaylor Navas who is a far worse keeper than Ward.

23 Feb 2018 20:32:16

Klopp doesn’t think he is good enough. We overhype everyone!

23 Feb 2018 22:05:14
Including the manager Harry 😜?

24 Feb 2018 09:09:58
You don’t start in goal every week for Real Madrid it you’re rubbish. Why do people keep saying this. I still have strong hopes that Karius will make it myself - with a stronger defence including vvd and hendo back in midfield breaking up play more he will be fine.

Karius for no 1!

24 Feb 2018 11:26:06
what on earth are you talking about 1jj? what has starting for Real Madrid or Barcelona has to do with anything?

Casillas started a lot for Real Madrid and in my opinion is one of the most overrated Goalkeepers of all time and was quickly found out once he left Real Madrid, the same goes for Valdes and Bravo from Barcelona, why is it so hard to understand these team could have my nan in goal and still win every single game 6-2!

Those teams don't need a world class gk most of the time, Spanish GK's up until de Gea literally had 10 world class players ahead of them when dominating world and european football. Once the quality of those players ahead of them dropped or they retired the GK's are exposed to what they really are, very very average goalkeepers. De Gea is only now getting to start for Spain because he doesn't play for Real or Barcelona and none of those teams have a spanish GK anymore.

Like in England every half decent english player is hyped beyond belief as to make an average midfielder like Dele Alli playing as 2nd striker most of his spurs career a world class midfielder worth over 150 million €! The same happens in spain with spanish players.

24 Feb 2018 17:33:28
Sorry 1jj Navas is rancidly awful. Barcelona and Real Borg played with poor keepers for years, Real with Cassilas and now Navas, Barcelona with Valdez, Rustu and Bravo. I invite you to watch the mistakes and goals Navas concedes, then come back and try and say he’s a good keeper.

23 Feb 2018 18:59:01
Any truth in Benzema rumours?

Hope not.

Hi eds and everyone else that contributes to the website. I was wondering if we've ever shown interest in Dembele from Tottenham? Might be a pipe dream but I'd love to see him in a red shirt. He glides through that midfield. Is he happy at Tottenham and could we have a chance at snatching him?

Agree3 Disagree3

Hi Edd's



Any insight into possible Liverpool interest in Sergej Milinković-Savic?

{Ed001's Note - only in our dreams mate, he is going to cost Coutinho money as he has a long term contract and Lazio do not want to sell.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2018 09:54:51

We have coutinho type money ed01😉.

{Ed001's Note - but we also need to buy more than one player....}

Thought I was looking a bit rougher than usual today. 😎.

Mctommy youngster walk straight into Man United UCL team and look perfectly at home, when was the last time our acafemy produce a youngster who can walk straight into 1st team? Damning indictment of our academy. Stop those rose tinted glass.

Agree4 Disagree35

22 Feb 2018 07:36:07
taa is pretty recent.

22 Feb 2018 07:45:01
I think that boy is 21, so he's not walked straight in to the team. It's different for the likes of woodburn/ ojo/ ejaria etc who played their first minutes for us as teenagers. It's just a different way of handling young players, and It's a luxury not many teams have as man utd have been steadily beefing up their squad to the point where they can pick and choose when to blood youngsters. Let's not forget TAA who made his champs league debut this season and looked great.

22 Feb 2018 09:23:27
We don’t have CM’s in our academy or they would be ahead of James Milner by now. The same applies to Marko Grujic!

22 Feb 2018 09:34:48
We have seen these young players walk in to the Man United team and 12 months latter never seen again in their shirts after we were told that they would be world beaters so they are not that great hey bud if don’t believe me look back in their records?

22 Feb 2018 10:09:12
For a start, no he didn't just walk straight into the United team. He's made 6 starts this season with yesterday. Last season he had 2 sub appearances. At 21 it's not awful, but it's hardly exceptional.

As for who from our academy produced someone whose had the same sort of first XI impact? Well TAA this season is academy through and through, has played far better than McTominay's best in almost every game and has made a significantly greater impact at a younger age. Woodburn has about the same number of appearances as mcTominay has, not including his international appearances. Flanagan came from the academy for a large number of senior appearances to great effect before his injury. Robinson also did alright before losing track. The likes of Brad Smith, Rossiter etc also made a similar number of first team appearances with potentially greater impact. Ejaria also made senior appearances before going on loan.

If you're expanding the net a little and counting everyone who came up through the youth team whether they started in the academy or not then Ibe, Sterling, Ward, Sinclair etc all have stepped up to the first team from youth levels of various shapes and sizes.

I hope that answers your question about the relative strengths of academies and gives you a little bit of perspective on your 'damming indictment' of our academy. Our graduates have done significantly better than United's over the past few years - still not well enough mind, but United's is not the gold standard to be looking at. For all Mourinho's bluster, McTominay looks about as good as Kevin Stewart ever did and if he doesn't look out of place in the United midfield, it says more about their midfield's quality than it does about him.

24 Feb 2018 00:06:35
Why do some of our own fans look for reasons to bash us? A kid at United had a half decent game against a half decent Spanish team and that’s a damning indictment on Liverpool?!
He didn’t even play that well and Seville made it very easy for him. He’ll be another that goes the way of Tom Cleverly, Januzaj, Macheda and countless other ok players to come through United in the last decade.
Nothing to do with Liverpool though.

21 Feb 2018 23:55:37
DDG showing why we need a top class GK. Single handedly keeping UTD in the tie!

Agree4 Disagree0

22 Feb 2018 02:49:34
Alisson would come in handy for us.
Shame that one's unlikely and we are targeting the Costa Rican Mignolet.

{Ed0333's Note - Costa Rican Mignolet I like that lol. Navas isn’t as bad as people make out. He’s quick off his line and in a one on one situation that’s a great asset. He’s won 2 champions leagues and a league title which will bring much needed experience into the team. He doesn’t like catching the ball which is a worry and he doesn’t seem to have world class saves in him like De Gea but I think he’s better than what we have now so if he comes let’s give him a season and see what happens. I think Klopp knows already a pursuit of Alison will be fruitless so he’s looking elsewhere. We have to be realistic in our goalkeeping expectations I would love us to sign an Allison or an Oblak but theres only a few fish and lots of fishermen. Sometimes a Tilapia is just as tasty as Marlin.

22 Feb 2018 09:40:53
You don’t have a Rolls Royce and have a mini engine put in it! We won leagues with great keepers we have not had one since Brucie. have we won the league since him NO we have not . Put the Rolls engine in the Royce and get the best results so in short buy the best to achieve your best.

22 Feb 2018 17:56:23
Honestly Ed0333 he’s worse than Mignolet, I know Mignolet is error prone, but Navas is worse. He is absolutely terrible on crosses and is always crowded out at corners as he lacks physique, I could list countless games where he has a brain fart that costs a goal, it’s not as much as he doesn’t like catching but he actually doesn’t appear to be able to, the boy has butter fingers! As for quick off his line, he is prone to day dreaming and not being aware. The goals by Las Palmas and Napoli in particular demonstrated that. Google them as they're a microcosm of what he’s like as a keeper. Personally if Becker wasn’t an option, I wouldn’t waste money on Navas, I’d stick with Karius and Ward and bring in a very experienced number 3 on the cheap. Not the £20-25m Madrid want for their circus act.

{Ed0333's Note - Can you look into my eyes Mr Shankly with a straight face and tell me that Simon Mignolet is better than Kaylor Navas??

22 Feb 2018 20:54:19
Yes I genuinely can and I can also corroborate my point with evidence too that demonstrates the point.

Consider the errors that Mignolet has been given a kicking for and ask would Navas have done better, and the answer is a resounding no. On crosses he’s appalling, he’s often dominated by bigger players and he never catches the ball, his punching is poor at best and barely clears the area. As for shot stopping, he is makes a meal of shots straight at him and because of his lack of physical ability, he lacks the height and reach to get shots at head height and over (Rabiot’s goal as a perfect example, as that was clearly down to keeper error) .

In terms of specific examples?

Well you have the goal Rabiot scored, which was keeper error, he clapped at crosses the whole evening against PSG and you can tell his defenders and midfielders don’t trust him.

Las Palmas, can’t charging our, completely missed the ball and left an open goal.

Betis, culpable for two of their goals, but the worst was fumbling it over the line. He completely lost a bread and butter save then almost chucked it into the net!

Sociedad, gets a pass back and instead of getting rid, he farts about with it in the area gets tackled and the ball ends up in the net.

Napoli, stood on edge of the area with the ball in midfield, because he’s so far out and has switched off, Insigne beats him with a gentle shot from all of 45/ 50 yards. Shocker. No good keeper should be beaten like fhat.

Dortmund, free kick right at him, a good keeper catches it, Navas weakly punches it in 5 yards in front of him straight to a Dortmund player to score.

Against Mexico, header, not particularly powerful, straight at Navas, he dives on it sending the ball into the net.

I could literally go on, there’s significant evidence showing that he’s not at all a good keeper if he were, do you think Madrid would be selling?

If he wasn’t at Madrid, we wouldn’t even be talking about him. The only thing he’s better than Mignolet on is distribution.

Other than that he’s a below average keeper at best and about the same level as Bravo and that didn’t work out well for City did it?

25 Feb 2018 00:05:32
FMrS my sons u13 keeper is better than Mignolet, I’m simply not having it that Migs is better than anyone. Even his own waxwork at Madam Tussaud’s would be quicker off the goal line and more vocal to boot 🚯.
