When it rains it pours! Just read that Ox not only injured his acl but the medial ligament and hamstring too. So we may not see him on the field in 2018 again. Recovery is going to take time and effort. Really empathize for the guy. Was beginning to come onto his own, and carve his own place in the team. 😒 🤞.


1.) 14 May 2018 20:08:53
Big shame for the lad, was coming into his own as well - hopefully he can make a full recovery.

2.) 14 May 2018 20:12:19
If that's true, everything else will be healed by the time his ACL has healed. It isn't like only 1 thing heals at a time.

3.) 14 May 2018 20:24:10
Don't count on seeing Ox until December 2018.

4.) 14 May 2018 20:53:15
He will be like a new signing for the second part of the season and all being well he will come back big and strong.

He has really impressed both on and off the pitch.

Got a feeling the Ox is going to pick up plenty of trophies with us in the next few seasons.

Let’s get number 6 to give him a boost.

5.) 14 May 2018 21:23:47
A bad blow and an area I get increasingly worried about. With Coutinho gone and Can likely to leave this summer we have a shortage in midfield, we have Keita arriving which eases some of the worry but now Chamberlain isn’t due back until December.

As it is we have.

Henderson (some injury issues) .
Can (leaving in summer) .
Chamberlain (out until December) .
Lallana (likely to leave) .


It seems Ceballos is highly likely which if happens gives us.


Plus Coutinho still needs replacing which hopefully mean Fekir or Pulisic arrives. Given Chamberlain is out until at least December and the possibility of any of the front three being injured or out of form, should we look to sign Ceballos, Pulisic and Fekir?

Would give us great depth and quality in midfield and attack.

6.) 14 May 2018 21:26:36
Chambo actually sourced 2 tickets for a father and son he met near the end of the season.

class act on and off the pitch!

hope he stays positive through his injury and can get through this!

7.) 14 May 2018 22:44:10
I kept thinking we got lucky with being him injury free compared to his arsenal days and now he's crocked. At least he's got the summer to recover and hopefully he can make it back before the busy christmas period.

8.) 14 May 2018 22:57:46
Hopefully he doesn't lose his pace and explosiveness. Really liked him this season, and offers a good option in the middle or wide. We Definetely need cover out wide, pace and the option to play as a forward or attacking midfielder too. Fekir ticks that box for me.

9.) 14 May 2018 22:42:25
Jonesred I understand your concerns and I’ve just been having a near identical conversation with a mate as he had the same worries. But I personally think that if we sign our targets (Cellabos and AM) along with Keita, then we will have sufficient players to cope with Ox’s injury.

If we use this seasons formation as an example and look at the squad hypothetically with those signings. Hendo, Keita and Fekir start with gigi, Milner and Cellabos in reserve is plenty, even if let’s say we lose hendo and Fekir to injury, we still would have a midfield of Cellabos, Keita and gig/ Milner, and then gives players like Trent and Woodburn the opportunity to play in midfield. Especially if we sign a rightback as the eds have mentioned.

I’d say signing another midfielder on top of all that could end up being more disruptive than productive.

10.) 15 May 2018 01:10:48
Don’t forget about TTA.

11.) 15 May 2018 05:57:23
Terrible shame. Ox had become an automatic starter in the midfield. An explosive player. He was outstanding against City in the CL.

This is clearly a very serious injury to his knee. It is entirely possible he will come back as good as before. Also entirely possible he will never be the same player.

At this point, the club has to plan for life without him. "Back in December2018", "nine months" etc are all just guesses.

So we very much need to bring in another midfielder now, in addition to Keita.

12.) 16 May 2018 15:27:32
No way Lallana leaves this summer - I expect him to make an impact when he gets subbed in in the 65th minute of the CL Final.

That being said, I only think we'll bring in 1 or 2 additional midfielders.

I personally get excited about the potential of a Milner, Keita, Ox midfield, and I don't think it's the end of the world if Lallana starts the season in Ox's spot

Bottom line, I'm not too worried about our midfield depth, even though it looks rough for the CL Final.

13.) 17 May 2018 15:58:50
He is only 24 yo. I remember Mane was injured and got back in 2 months.

For the guys that are interested, there's an excellent interview of Fabinho by Brazilian journalist Cleber Machado on reddit. Gives very interesting insight on the atmosphere around the Barcelona game, his initial period after joining and a lot of other snippets on internal workings.


1.) 07 Jul 2019 11:06:11
I must look it up thank's for that.

2.) 07 Jul 2019 13:49:38
Really interesting, the original interview is in Portuguese but a Redditor has translated some of the more interesting points. Can be found by searching "Interesting snippets from Fabinho's podcast for Globoesporte".

Cheers ArAy1969, great recommendation.

3.) 07 Jul 2019 14:28:24
Ed001, would you say there is corruption in this Copa America favouring Brazil? It was shocking when the referee didnt bother using VAR for a few decisions for no reason.


{Ed001's Note - probably, there usually is favourable refereeing for the home team in an international tournament as no one wants them out early.}

4.) 07 Jul 2019 15:06:45
Ahh I see thank you Ed.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

5.) 07 Jul 2019 16:05:20
Spot on, Ed. That has always been the case which is why countries who have a team that has potential of winning an int'l comp. always fight tooth and nail, to host it cos not only is there great home support, there is always some good, old "home cooking" (NFL jargon for favorable refereeing) .

6.) 08 Jul 2019 11:18:52
Is there corruption in Brazilian football (regardless of the event or competition being played)? Is there juice in an orange?

7.) 08 Jul 2019 16:30:06
I remember a story about a cop who walked on to the pitch and shot a player, back in the 60s i think. Wasnt an international tournament, or an international game. I think it was in argentina or brazil.



22 Jun 2019 23:56:53
If anyone wants to know what hard work and grafting is all about, then have a look at Brazil's second goal against Peru tonight. Classic Firmino. The GK goes to kick out the ball, Firmino blocks it with his leg 6 feet up in the air, back into hitting the post. The ball comes back to Firmino, he neatly sidesteps the GK and scores.


1.) 23 Jun 2019 07:16:58
You got it all wrong.
His white teeth blanked the keeper and he mirubbish the ball, only for him to show his kung fu skills and hit the post and then make a bunny out of the keeper by scoring without looking.
All his greatest skills in one move on display
Nope this ain't kung fu soccer script.



17 Jun 2019 08:26:07
Been feeling uneasy lately, and really getting the feeling I'm missing something. And then I found it. I'm missing Harry. And NegativeRedWalter hasn't posted since we won the UCL! Come back guys. Let's talk about six, baby. 😎.


1.) 17 Jun 2019 12:27:50
They only post when things are bad.

2.) 17 Jun 2019 12:46:58
Isn't Harry a City fan now? You can probably find him on their page lambasting Pep for not reaching 100 pts again this season.

3.) 17 Jun 2019 16:12:19
Harry is a City fan now and long may it continue. NegativeRedWalter is curled up in the fetal position crying his eyes out os Arsenal are more than irrelevant at this moment. Don't miss either of them lot, really.

4.) 17 Jun 2019 19:59:46
Yeah, I know all that. I just miss laughing my head off early in the mornings at their absurdities. Oh well. Maybe someone else will come along. 😎.



04 Jun 2019 19:14:02
Being the official end of the season, I wanted to take the chance to thank all the Eds (particularly Eds 001, 002, 033,0333 and 025) and everyone else for yet again another year full of thrills and downers. I start my day with the page and end it that way too. Many heartfelt thanks once again. 🙏.


{Ed001's Note - cheers RA, really glad you like it so much.}

1.) 04 Jun 2019 19:48:25
Great post ra and a massive thank you to the Eds, especially Ed1 and Ed33.

{Ed001's Note - cheers Mo.}

2.) 04 Jun 2019 19:59:35
Yeah, I echo the OP.
We don’t all see Eye to eye at times and Ed002 doesn’t always love me but hey that’s what makes it interesting

The time and dedication given by the Ed’s is fantastic, it’s a fabulous site.


{Ed001's Note - thanks Drog!}

3.) 04 Jun 2019 20:05:22
True that ArAy! Many thanks to all the Eds. This site is a part of life now.

{Ed001's Note - thank you very much Das.}

4.) 04 Jun 2019 20:11:52
Ah suppose they're ok I guess😉.

{Ed001's Note - that is probably the nicest thing you have every said!}

5.) 04 Jun 2019 20:12:44
What do the Ed’s to anyway?!?! 😉

Love you guys 😘.

{Ed001's Note - mostly argue over which of us is going to get stuck editing your posts....}

6.) 04 Jun 2019 20:18:06
Massive thanks Eds.

{Ed001's Note - thank you Chaki.}

7.) 04 Jun 2019 20:31:46
Do you still want me as a spot prize at the Ed's end of season party in Bognor Regis?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, you are always a great booby prize as you have such great boobys.}

8.) 04 Jun 2019 20:58:24
If any of the EDDS r around,
What do u make of the quotes by KLOPP of the departing STURRIDGE and MORENO. surely he is sugar coating them. ’STURRIDGE has earned the right to be a modern day LFC great. can't BE HAVING THAT.

{Ed001's Note - what is he meant to say?}

9.) 04 Jun 2019 21:13:39
Wembley - Come on, what's wrong with a nice pleasant send-off? It's all about the moment nowadays and nobody remembers the past or cares a damn about the future. So send them off nicely with a smile and thank them for their loyal service. Costs nothing, and everyone's happy.

10.) 04 Jun 2019 22:42:17
Hi gang,
They don’t deserve KLOPPS backing, they both let him down.
When KLOPP first arrived he needed STURRIDGE to go through the pain barrier to help him out and STURRIDGE was having none of it. as for MORENO the less said the better. also KLOPP should not be saying STURRIDGE will go down as a modern day LFC great. is he for real.

11.) 04 Jun 2019 23:23:14
MORENO was that good for us that one season we played a midfielder JAMES MILNER there, even when Moreno was fit. they don’t deserve KLOPPS praise, it should be thanks for time. Tara.

12.) 05 Jun 2019 05:20:06
It's something called a little bit of respect, wembley. I'm sorry mate but you're speaking nonsense here.

13.) 05 Jun 2019 07:33:31
To me the idea is about the team as a family if you slaughter them when they leave that family mentality klopp has built over the years is gone it serves no purpose so wish them well and thanks for your time with us boys.

14.) 05 Jun 2019 09:44:26

Fantastic site. I love telling people who liverpool are signing before it happens. I was telling my mate we were buying mo salah a couple of years ago, he said "who"

Thanks to all the hard work the eds put in. BEST FOOTBALL SITE EVER.

15.) 05 Jun 2019 19:47:25
I second that
Love this site
Im checking it 50 times a day
Im on my wedding anniversary meal. checking it now
Wife just said “hope your not on that liverpool site again”
I told her I'm looking at some granny porn
Apparently shes ok with that.



02 Jun 2019 11:15:11
To Mr. Gary Neville. "Liverpool should forget about the Champions League". My response is: Keep it up with the punditry and the predictions, you genius. Only a matter of time before you end up as a doorman at Tesco, which is suitable for your IQ level.


1.) 02 Jun 2019 11:20:48
I’ve just said the same 👌🏻.

2.) 02 Jun 2019 11:22:44
Ra you surprise me speaking like that, come on, he's suitable for a doorman at tesco? don't give him THAT much credit mate ;) .

3.) 02 Jun 2019 11:35:31
I’ve grown to him ( g Neville) one of the better pundits he’ll be getting his leg pulled left right an center from carra an that’s enough for me.

4.) 02 Jun 2019 11:40:22
Salah, my friend, I am just following what i was taught in my upbringing: be kind and generous to those who are clearly less fortunate than yourself. 🤣.

5.) 02 Jun 2019 11:43:06
Scouse John. The least he could do is to at least make an attempt to conceal his clear bias against Liverpool. Rio Ferdinand did it sufficiently well, yesterday.

6.) 02 Jun 2019 11:46:54
Love it, ra.

7.) 02 Jun 2019 11:53:00
OP, I would ask Gary Neville to get out of the business of giving managers and clubs advice on what they need to do or not do judging by his "stellar" record as manager of Valencia BUT I know he won't hence like you said, keep that fee advice coming, genius.

8.) 02 Jun 2019 12:22:09
Bit insulting to supermarket workers there to be honest lads.

9.) 02 Jun 2019 14:28:32
liverpool fans flipped and floped between prioritizing PL or CL over the last few weeks. hahaha is what it is.

{Ed025's Note - they only flip flopped when the league was out of reach faith, thats the one you all wanted and dont try to convince us otherwise, maybe next season..

10.) 02 Jun 2019 15:08:59
I wanted both if possible actually, Ed BUT if you had given me truth serum, I would have admitted that I wanted the PL.

{Ed025's Note - yeah mate i think its been too long...but you have the team and manager to make that happen..

It's tough being the starter, then losing your place and sitting on the bench for 2 years (first behind Karius then Alisson) . All the best to Migs. YNWA.

The club must certainly have someone in mind, if they're allowing Mignolet to leave. I was not always happy with Mignolet, but after seeing Bravo's performance today, I really hope it's someone of Mignolet's level and better. I doubt it'll be an internal promotion, and probably someone from outside the club. Granted almost all the shots on target were right at Bravo, but he still didn't let anything pass the goal line.

What everyone is forgetting is that people have to leave before we can bring new ones in. Nothing to do with finances but squad space. We were supposed to have Mignolet, Lallana, Moreno, Clyne, Kent, Wilson, Sturridge and others ( I can only remember these few off the top of my head), and only Moreno and Sturridge left. And only slightly more than a week left for the window closing. We're traveling with a squad of 28 or 29 (including the kids but not including the front 3), so that gives you an idea of how much work has to be done to bring it down to 25 for the season. There's a clear bottleneck.

Was bound to happen the moment we hit the highest level of performance and started winning things. Happens to all the teams. Just a matter of the club tying down their players for as long as they anticipate needing them. And even then, it's not always a sure thing, as we're all seeing with the Griezmann and Neymar situations.

Do you all really think that LFC's recruitment policy and strategy is to buy a 17 year old CB, and then go for a 30 year old, few weeks later, while still having 4 cbs still on the books and payroll? Maybe Lovren will be gone but it hasn't happened yet.

Players should be picked on current form. Gomez is not near the form of early last year. Whereas Matip is firing on all cylinders just like the second half of last year. It's a simple thing, why complicate it?

Adrian has only played one game for us and people are jumping at proclaiming him the GK Supreme. Karius was better than Migs for me. I have no doubts about it. He just fell apart one particular night, and we were all watching. And it's way too soon to say if Adrian is better than Karius. I'd reserve judgment at least until Adrian has played 10 games or so. Just seems odd to me that West Ham's second choice was not offered a contract good enough to keep him.

James, Ox played the first half last night. Or maybe not; very few noticed it for obvious reasons.

We started the season the same way last year. And were lucky with quite a few of the results, until confidence started building up, and we rolled on.
