How ya Ed hope your ok mate? Ed002 have you heard any rumbling's transfer wise about Liverpool in January?

BarryinLouth

{Ed002's Note - Nothing explicitly about January Barry, but I have explained elsewhere that the club has been showing some interest in players.}


1.) 02 Oct 2018 20:04:54
Ok thanks a million Ed👍.

Hello all! I really do believe that we have a squad to be at least in the top 4 every season but for me what we really need is a cup win. Yes I know it's the league we want but a cup win would I believe would really get the ball rolling for us.

BarryinLouth

1.) 12 Jul 2018 20:05:34
Agree Barry, it's time for us to win a trophy.


2.) 12 Jul 2018 20:12:40
Make you right BIL about winning a cup will give us that winning mentality which we sorely miss.


3.) 12 Jul 2018 20:26:57
Totally agree, we've got to break that ice somewhere along the line.


4.) 12 Jul 2018 20:34:38
Good point but I really think we will win the league this year. After the strides we made last season I think we’ve recruited far better than any other team. I really think city are going to be caught out big time this year. I think there will be far less of a fear factor.


5.) 12 Jul 2018 20:41:42
This is the longest trophy drought I remember,7 seasons a season longer than the last. Any trophy will do me this season. In 13 years we've won 1 trophy for me that's not good enough. I hope we can juggle the squad enough to compete on 4 fronts. That means staying in the cups so that our young players can get a run in the team and be ready when called upon. Towards the end of last season we had Camacho Woodburn and Jones on the bench but I can understand Klopp's reluctance to use them especially after the Chelsea match when every game was a must not lose.


6.) 12 Jul 2018 20:58:45
When we win the league, the flood gates will open methinks.


7.) 12 Jul 2018 21:08:35
It’s fair to say we are hopeful of a win this year. Perhaps silverware is highly possible. But iwe our unrealistic pressures on ourselves by saying we will win this year. The players haven’t set foot on the pitch, transfers aren’t over the line, injuries could happen or hopefully not. I really do think the Premier League has evolved into such an interesting league! We now have a top 6 divide which rests on a knife edge, underdog teams like Leicester possible of winning the league with pure grit and now teams like Wolves who have the potential to re-establish themselves as a force in the league from a lower league. Sadly a lot of this is down to spending power in my opinion but who wins the league each year is not so foreseeable!
Whether we can get silverware or more depends on how we play game to game (obviously) so let’s keep on backing our team for a tasty season of attacking football and hope we’re rewarded at the end of it!


8.) 12 Jul 2018 21:24:11
We have a champions league finalist in our team.


9.) 12 Jul 2018 21:28:28
Plus a World Cup finalist as well. Good DL.


10.) 12 Jul 2018 22:06:54
Spot on aoe, me too mate.


11.) 13 Jul 2018 00:02:14
Agreed. Let's forget the league title and go after the league cup.

Seriously what difference does it make!


12.) 13 Jul 2018 02:20:35
Let's go after every game next season.


13.) 13 Jul 2018 09:40:51
I saw a post from MKS the other day relating to our "success" and nearly responded stating "how have we been successful? we've not won anything since Klopp's arrival! ". then I realized success is "the accomplishment of an aim or purpose".

We aimed to improve our squad - accomplished (and still improving! )

We aimed for top 4 - accomplished in back to back seasons

Now our aim has to be to get that silverware! - I'm aware we have tried and failed on 3 occasions in finals : (

Let make 2018/ 2019 the year for silverware!


14.) 13 Jul 2018 16:32:33
It's going to be a long season with lots of games. It is important to remember we won't win them all. So please do not rip the team / club to shreds when we do loose.

{Ed033's Note - What should Liverpool FC do if there are any loose shreds? :)


 

 

19 Mar 2018 12:09:02
What's the chances of Ndidi Ed001?

BarryinLouth

{Ed001's Note - very slim Leicester are not interested in selling him.}


1.) 19 Mar 2018 15:19:20
I like Ndidi and think he would be a good replacement for Emre. I would still like to see someone of Jorginho's ilk come in as well though. Someone to pull strings from deeper when needed. With Naby Keita arriving too I think those three would be an excellent mix and would allow us to take our time finding someone to replace Phil without getting desperate.


2.) 19 Mar 2018 18:04:33
I would take Ndidi tomorrow as he is very good and LFC fans will have a good chance to assess him as he will be on duty with Nigeria at the WC. Now will LC sell? That is another issue as Ed02 has said.


3.) 19 Mar 2018 21:32:15
I want both Ndidi and Jorginho to join Keita at the club. Yes, that means 3 new first choice mids in one window but Klopp knows very well that the above 3 can help the team dictate play and take our game to the next level.
I'd give the GKs and defenders another season and concentrate on strengthening the midfield for now.


4.) 20 Mar 2018 10:19:49
finding someone to replace phil? he's a good player i get it, but id say that his role has already been replaced by another role.

its not about replacing him anymore next window, its about taking the club to another level.


 

 

19 Nov 2017 11:54:47
Morning Ed's and Red's. Can anyone tell me the name of the young CB Ed025 was talking about on the Sharkpod please.

BarryinLouth

{Ed002's Note - Perr Shuurs.}


1.) 19 Nov 2017 15:54:53
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Barry.}


 

 

15 Oct 2017 11:43:10
Ed001what's your gut feeling on Liverpool going into the transfer market in January? I know it's not a ideal time to move buy we really are crying our for a CB and a DM.

BarryinLouth

{Ed001's Note - I expect us to try once more for VVD to be honest.}


1.) 15 Oct 2017 12:30:48
Should we not get VVD I fear De Vrij could be a target, surely not? I can't think off the top of my head who would be available/ want to join us in Jan or even summer, somebody good enough that is. De Vrij isn't, he wouldn't improve us at all but his name is been banded about and I don't like the idea of it one bit.


2.) 15 Oct 2017 12:25:48
Ed 001 who can your realistically see us singing in the next two windows? I know it’s guess work but who would you sign?

{Ed001's Note - I am sure there will be a few choruses of You'll Never Walk Alone. ;-)

Seriously, not a clue, VVD is still wanted but looks out of reach. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a right back brought in though as well as a centre back.

I really do not know who I would sign, it is still a long way off January and that is not really the time to do any major squad work. The summer will be dictated in large part by the World Cup.}


3.) 15 Oct 2017 14:05:29
Okay thank you Ed! Definitely want a CB in Jan.


4.) 15 Oct 2017 20:25:59
Lucas played 90 minutes for Lazio in a 2 _1 win at juventus they ain't been beat there for time he would been ideal patrolling in front of defence this season til we get someone else too do job allowing front 5 too do there thing, saves money if u keep the right players playing in right positions also wid valuable experience.


5.) 15 Oct 2017 21:23:42
Vvd most definitely is not the answer to our defensive woes. As Eds1 said about a year ago he daydreams.


6.) 15 Oct 2017 23:56:37
Maybe he day dreaming bout us, there are other centre backs out there crazy we can't identify any an bring them in too add strength too our weaknesses.


7.) 15 Oct 2017 20:43:36
Ed001 - is the news of a right back because TAA and Gomez aren't progressing as quickly as possible. Or are they looking to move Gomez into the centre?

{Ed001's Note - because Clyne is unwanted and TAA is not expected to have a future there. Long term Gomez is expected to move central, but not for a couple of seasons at least.}


8.) 15 Oct 2017 22:06:54
I'm surprised you say we may look for a right back considering how well Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been playing in that position - surely it would only limit their chances in the team?

Unless of course Gomez is to be used at centre back and TAA in midfield/ on the wing going forward.

Thoughts Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - TAA has not been impressing though, he has struggled defensively.}


9.) 16 Oct 2017 01:08:00
You mention that you think a right back will come in, I'd have thought that would be the least of our worries with TAA, Gomez, Flanno and Clyne all on the books. Are you expecting multiple departures in January?

{Ed001's Note - Clyne is completely unwanted, he was playing last season out of necessity, he is going as soon as the club can get rid. Flanno is still not anywhere near his best and TAA is struggling with the defensive side and is likely to move into midfield.}


10.) 16 Oct 2017 03:01:37
Another RB? Looks like Clyne's days are numbered and Gomez might be going back to CB. Not convinced by VVD still especially at 70 million pounds. Klopp needs to get this right with the fees being bandied about.
Any idea which RB the club might look to? Plus we also need a striker with Sturridge not making an impression and both Origi and INgs unlikely to get a look in again. Timo Werner would be a great addition. Along with Gabriel Jesus, he is the other young striker i am most impressed with.

{Ed001's Note - Henrichs, Pereira, Tete, Marusic - off the top of my head we have looked at all four, though it is a long way off so not yet sure which is likely, as it is probably going to be for the summer. The RB was about the next 2 windows. Clyne's days have been numbered for a while.}


11.) 16 Oct 2017 09:25:05
Ed good info as usual mate, regarding VVD you say you expect us to push for him in Han but you also say he looks out of reach? Just puzzled as why we don't look at another CB if indeed he is out if reach.

{Ed001's Note - because he is the one Klopp really wants.}


12.) 16 Oct 2017 10:13:10
Interesting your comments ed 01, I have thought for a while Trent more suited too a midfield role, I can't believe we don't want clyne he is best right back we have, Gomez is excellent but inexperienced an more suited too centre back, again with all this in mind jus points too really bad preparation in transfer window for such a pivotal season, we also have baggage of 3 quality players who are on there way out an don't want too b with us.

{Ed001's Note - Clyne is awful. What good is a player who can't attack nor defend?}


13.) 16 Oct 2017 12:32:54
Gomez's development is on track. If he continues to perform like he did last Saturday when he showed a maturity well beyond his tender years I can see him becoming a fixture of this LFC side.


14.) 16 Oct 2017 13:40:40
Gomez is the real deal for me to be honest I think he's got a huge part to play for us.

Morning Ed001 good read as always mate. Here I just saw that you have a dodgy back, thought I told you ages ago to get rid of that Karma Sutra book😁.

BarryinLouth

{Ed001's Note - chance would be a fine thing mate!}


1.) 10 Oct 2018 09:28:33
Classic from Barry
🤣🤣🤣🤣.


2.) 10 Oct 2018 09:59:15
Lol Barry, love it mate.


3.) 10 Oct 2018 10:23:45
Get rid of it? I heard 001 was writing the second edition. Forward written by 025 of course.


4.) 10 Oct 2018 10:29:26
You know Barry, some of those positions are quite good for loosening the old joints (I’ve heard)


5.) 10 Oct 2018 10:32:47
Some regular yoga and stretching exercises will solve the problem. Keyboard warriors (like most of us) will always have this problem.

{Ed001's Note - I have had it since I was 11 mate, hurt it playing rugby at school and have had a recurring problem ever since. I do stretch regularly and usually a stretch will sort it out when it happens. The problem is that it came on late at night after the Man City game and I was just going to bed and so didn't stretch it out. Woke up in the morning and it was too late to stretch it away and it was too tight to move to stretch. It is starting to loosen up now and I can actually sit down for short periods now, so it is getting there. Just have to gently stretch it away. This is what comes of putting the smallest kid (me) up against a kid who had a growth hormone disorder and was well over 6ft and about 18st of pure brute force.}


6.) 10 Oct 2018 12:16:03
I can see it now Ed:Jamie Doran stars as Ed001 in"Fifty Shades of Red"😁.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure that will mean something to others but I am lost.}


7.) 10 Oct 2018 13:08:34
Im lost too! don't worry Barry mate me and Ed are older than grass, I guess your comment is something modern! I try to keep up with times but they move too damn quick! Lol hope you're well mate.


8.) 10 Oct 2018 13:12:41
Instead of the book/ film"Fifty Shades of Grey"about this man with deep passion for S&M Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - personally I prefer M&Ms.}


9.) 10 Oct 2018 15:36:26
6ft and 18st at 11? Was he born on krypton?

{Ed001's Note - he was a monster.}


10.) 10 Oct 2018 16:21:04
Not to worry lad's, respect to all 👍.


11.) 10 Oct 2018 16:43:48
That's bad, Ed001. I know all about it. Back problems are the most painful of all body pains. It's sheer agony at times. My Father has two dislodged vertebrae in the lower back that were fused together (car he was in fell off a bridge in an accident), and I have two perpetually slipped discs opposite each other (courtesy those damned vibrating machines you see in the gym; instead of stimulating muscles, bone parts got dislodged) . I was prescribed yoga and stretching, and also to make sure the stomach in front never got bigger than a certain point because the extra weight would make things worse. Things are fine, but when it rains, or when it's humid (I travel a lot in tropical Asian countries) then it's hell. I'm told the hot weather (like Dubai) is better for back problems than the cold variety.

{Ed001's Note - it is mate, it helps a great deal. You might want to consider it yourself.}


12.) 10 Oct 2018 18:02:22
This thread has become deliciously salacious 🤣🤣🤣.


13.) 10 Oct 2018 19:56:27
Some of you guys need 50 Shades of Mind Cleansing. 😉.

{Ed001's Note - I obviously don't as my first thought when I read S&M was to misread it as Marks&Sparks. I was very disappointed in myself, I must be getting old!}


14.) 10 Oct 2018 20:46:19
True Ed ;) . lol :) hope you've had a good day mate, mine isn't going well at all! one of them and I'm now realising why I have no hair but we move on!

{Ed001's Note - I tore mine out years ago when Harry first started posting...}


 

 

27 Sep 2018 11:28:29
Ed002 did you get a chance to look at that Vietnam war documentary by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick yet?

BarryinLouth

{Ed002's Note - Not yet Barry.}


1.) 27 Sep 2018 12:20:23
I've seen it Barry. Absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it.


2.) 27 Sep 2018 13:02:44
Incredible docu series. Watched it back to back on Emirates from Dubai to Chicago. 14 hours flew by.


3.) 27 Sep 2018 14:40:03
Crackin watch. What a complete waste of lives. Lessons learnt though right?


4.) 27 Sep 2018 15:43:31
Ah no problem Ed I'm sure you will at some stage. definitely the best documentary ever about the war lad's.


5.) 27 Sep 2018 17:30:16
Agreed Barry. I'm old enough to remember the end of the war. During the nightly news when they would talk about guerrilla's I asked my parents why they were fighting gorilla's. I was probably 4 or 5 at the time.


6.) 27 Sep 2018 18:11:43
Brilliant Stone innocence at its best mate.


7.) 27 Sep 2018 19:22:31
That's so weird Barry. I've been watching that too. Still don't really understand why the yanks were involved. Ken burns has made docs about the American civil war and the 2nd World War too. All are on Netflix.


8.) 27 Sep 2018 23:52:03
Compulsive viewing I binge watched that.


 

 

26 Sep 2018 21:43:06
Ahh well lad's it's all about the league anyway.

BarryinLouth

1.) 26 Sep 2018 21:46:46
Feels like a blessing in disguise.

Shakiri and sturridge were really good.

We need robertson and vvd in the team as a must.

Thought minoglet played well too.


2.) 26 Sep 2018 21:48:58
Yeah a bit of sliver ware what we’ve not one since 2012!


3.) 26 Sep 2018 22:06:56
Too right Barry mate, bring Saturday on.


4.) 26 Sep 2018 22:08:10
Moreno was crap, every time Clyne got the ball we slowed down. Matip was like Matip of old. Fabinho took time to adjust but was pretty anonymous. Taken our chances and we would have won, but it’s good to know Shaqiri and Sturridge can come in when needed and our midfield is basically rotatable.
I’d get an experienced fullback who can cover each side, as any injury to one of them and I’d be worried! I know it’s most of their first appearances, but the rest of the team is so strong now, it shouldn’t be let down by them.


5.) 26 Sep 2018 22:33:48
Agreed Firmane. Moreno in particular was a liability this evening but none of our defence filled me with confidence. Thought Fabinho was okay for his first start tho tbf.

On we go to the weekend when I am very confident we will take a massive 3 points.


6.) 26 Sep 2018 23:01:07
I don't understand why their first goal stood? It was offside. or it wasnt?

{Ed002's Note - The player who played the ball was on side.}


7.) 26 Sep 2018 23:16:36
Firmane, I didn't see the match, but I agree with you regarding getting cover for the back line. My opinion is that we are a little light there in quality. It worries me if anything happens to Robertson especially.


8.) 26 Sep 2018 23:43:47
Ah ok! Thanks Ed002!


9.) 27 Sep 2018 00:03:52
I thought Shaqiri had a decent game but disagree with Ravi about sturridge, thought he slowed the play down when he had the ball, his touch was off this evening, he offers little movement and his work rate wasn’t on a par with his levels in the PSG game.
Lovren and Matip hardly won a header against Morata which is a worry, I know they are both only just returning from injury but they were both out battled throughout the match.


10.) 27 Sep 2018 00:09:32
When the free kick was taken Barkley’s left leg was in an offside position, given that Barkley then headed the ball at Mignolet that makes him offside. It’s one of those where normally you would say it’s so tight you can’t blame the officials but they were using VAR, I thought it was offside when I saw the pictures and I still think it was. It just goes to show after last season farcical VAR experiment that English officials still can’t use it properly. Great goal by Hazard though, deserved to win any game.

{Ed002's Note - Embarrassingly bitter.}


11.) 27 Sep 2018 00:12:24
In fairness I thought Clyne played okay? Better at defending than attacking, taa is much better. He kept the ball well under pressure and didn't give the ball away.

Moreno on the other hand was piss poor. I like the lad, he is a tryer, but he is not at our level. Nowhere near. Robbo and van Duke would ha ve closed down hazard before he could shoot. Alisson would have parried the first goal out of danger. Migs is crap too. Sorry to say.

Chelsea played a strong team, no youngsters, all the big boys. Liverpool played with half of the reserve team.

Shaqiri was a revelation, I think he could end up our best player. So skillful. He is way too good to be playing for relegation fodder Stoke.

Sturridge scored again. Scores every game he plays. I loved the shot that hit the bar. Classic Danny sturridge. Shot out of nowhere, no pull back of his leg, he just sort of digs at it. If I were manager I think it would be a hard decision to pick Bobby or Danny. Bobby probably the better player, although ds on his day is special, but ds is potent atm, he is FIT! and he scores every game, he constantly looked dangerous.

{Ed002's Note - I think you will find both sides started only a couple of players or so who will start at the weekend. It is pitiful that you grasp at straws saying Chelsea played all of the “big boys”. There is something so stupid about this nonsense.}


12.) 27 Sep 2018 00:19:21
Sorry I’m not falling for your embarrassing attempt at a wind up when I make a perfectly reasoned argument and praise an opposing player.


13.) 27 Sep 2018 01:14:10
I agree Kramer. Offside is offside whether it’s his big toe or his whole body it’s still offside.
We have an opportunity with VAR to get those decisions 100% correct every time. It’s not a case of ‘clear and obvious’ when it comes to offside. It’s black and white and when you freeze the play as the ball is played his leg and his torso are clearly ahead of the last defender, offside.

What is also clear is that our officials aren’t competent enough to use VAR correctly so I hope it doesn’t come into the premier league but I know it will unfortunately.
Anyway I’m bored talking about it now that’s the last I’m saying on the matter, on to Saturday.


14.) 27 Sep 2018 00:45:07
I'm only saying Chelsea didn't face the three musketeers and they will have to soon.

I'm gutted. Not as much as if it was the league we are still TOP OF THE LEAGUE. And I'm looking for positives, rather than just focusing on the negatives. We brought van dijk, Alison and Robertson for a reason. Cos that defence is poor. Lovren the best defender in the world, he is not a leader, he is better with vvd and moreno looks like a competition winner at times! He is all over the place and way too rash. Hazard attacked that left on purpose of course.

And it was offside. That's just a fact. The poo units are talking about, the refs will be talking about and of course we are talking about it. It gave Chelsea a way back into the game. And Keita didn't foul moses either, he got the ball. The ref did seem to have blue eyes.

But well played Chelsea. Not many teams come here and win. They played okay and it was an exciting game. I'm looking forward to the next one because we will field a stronger team. And I think we will take them. Not that special, well organised but 3asily ruffled. Hazard is the danger but the big man will deal with him.

Alsp thought fab was a step behind the pace at times. Great to see him playing but you can see he is shocked by the speed of the game. He grew into it and he does look pretty hard.


15.) 27 Sep 2018 01:43:32
Can’t win them all. If I had to pick either this game or the next to loose, then this would be my choice. Chin up guys, we have a league to win 👍.


16.) 27 Sep 2018 01:44:02
Firmane, that is such a good point mate. Imagine if robbo got injured! We wouldn't win the league with moreno. He is awful. Sorry but who the fudge bought him?!

Would have won the Europe league if not for moreno. Sorry alby. I like his character and he could be an exciting full back for someone like Brighton or Palace but he just isn't at the level needed to win titles.

Do you know any players who can play both rb and lb? Who may be available? We have milner of course. It is amazing that such a good player was at lb for the team. Really like milly.


17.) 27 Sep 2018 03:09:40
There was talk of liverpool signing a new cb in the summer. I thought it was a stupid story and we have loads of cbs. The only ones I trust are gomez and van dijk. Lovren isn't title winning material. Look, we collapsed again. Like we used to before we signed vvd and Alison. And robbo and Trent coming through. With gomez fit and playing regularly it is really a completey new defence. Our old defence matip, Lovren, Clyne and moreno and migs are useless. I like Lovren but he has been here years and never quite lived up to expectations. It always seems like he is getting there and then he has games like today. He will never be consistent. We need to look for some new cbs. Get rid of Lovren, matip and moreno. I think Clyne is good enough for our squad but alby isnt. I understand klopp interest in tarkowski. Defence are meant to stop goals. Those boys who played today ALWAYS collapse.

I'm glad we have less games now getting in the way of winning the league.


18.) 27 Sep 2018 05:33:41
I can't agree with Clyne being good enough for Liverpool Mane, he'd be the first out the door for me mate.


19.) 27 Sep 2018 08:01:59
We wasted chances and got undone by a moment of pure quality from a truly fantastic player. There’s no shame in that. We can’t win every game!


20.) 27 Sep 2018 08:04:21
It looked like they initially called a throw in instead of a foul, which was a bit confusing. Although I don't think there was much in it, we've all seen them given if the studs are up, even if it was soft.

The offside call, or lack of it, it was tight and you could only really see Barkley's leg if you zoomed it right in, I don't know if VAR officials can do that or not tbf? The interfering with play part of the rule is what seems too open to interpretation, there were three players offside at that point, they all made runs for the ball, is that not interfering with play, its dragging defenders with them? Maybe I've just got my red tinted specs on.

Ed01/ Ed025 what was your take on it?

{Ed001's Note - they can see any angle or zoom they want and, as usual, they messed it up. Said from the start the mistake with VAR is putting it in the hands of incompetents busy covering up for their fellow incompetents.}

Thanks for the quick reply Ed01, that's a shame to hear, because if they've seen the same image we all have, then it's clearly offside. Would it be too much to ask them to submit a report after the game for every use of VAR why it was/ wasn't given? Just some we can actually see their reasoning, because like you suggest it's practically collusion to cover ref mistakes at this point.

{Ed001's Note - they will just make up a interpretation again.}

The offside no call was not the reason we lost the match though. Wasted opportunities were, in my opinion. Great teams overcome poor officiating, again just my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - agreed, but that does not mean they should be excused for making the wrong call with VAR. It is acceptable without it, but there is no point in spending tens of millions of pounds on something that is no more use than the officials on the pitch.}

I know what you mean about Clyne salah but tbf he has looked better this season since coming back from injury. A year or two ago I would have agreed whole heartedly.

But, football is about the here and now and in pre season and in the games he has played this season he has been okay. I don't think he has made a mistake. Clearly Trent is the 1st choice but you need a back up player and I think Clyne is good enough to play that role.

First out of the door is moreno for me. Followed by matip and migs. Lovren is good enough for back up I guess. That whole defence was shocking before we signed virgil and robbo, Alison. We used to score 4 goals and concede 3 but our attack is not so rampant this season, our defence needs to be solid. Klopp can improve players and I think clyne has improved. Good enough for back up imo.

I agree with you as well, Stone BUT the Ed is correct. We should have been done with them WAY before even Hazard came on BUT this does not excuse the officials that could not see that Morata was a full yard offside when the ball is played and normally, the play is blown dead.

Example vs Spurs. Eriksen played in a similar free kick with Kane being in the same position as Morata and like Morata, Kane did not play the ball. Alderweireld came in behind him and headed wide BUT the play was blown dead for offside as soon as the ball was played. Why? Cos Kane is affecting the play as the ball was played. The same thing happened here and Friend should have used VAR but he chose not to cos he is as pompous as the other crap refs. in the PL who will always be there to make up new rules for him when he messes up.

As Ed said, VAR may be a great idea BUT if you have proven incompetent officials running it, it will always fail which is strange cos in other leagues like Germany where they by and large, don't have this problem.

Don't disagree with you at all BRover and Ed.

Morning all 😁 still buzzing since yesterday well actually I've been buzzing since the 1st game of the season. As Salah said yesterday about the Arsenal fan and I said about the manc I was working with (Even though it was said through very gritted teeth) fan's of other team's are really starting to take notice of us this season. I for one certainly haven't felt this buzz about the squad in a long time. I'm not going to get ahead of myself and start talking about thing's made of sliver but what I'am going to and maybe suggest everyone does the same is just take it one game at a time. Onwards and upwards Red's👍. Oh and have a lovely Sunday all now to watch MOTD again😉.

{Ed025's Note - early days i know barry but the signs look very good for the reds mate,....and im as sick as a sea going parrot.. :)


1.) 23 Sep 2018 10:43:33

{Ed025's Note - im good thanks barry, still crap at golf but nothing new there mate, hows life in louth? you have had some bad storms over there i hear my friend..


2.) 23 Sep 2018 11:08:51
Only a little gust Ed. let's just say the Louth Kite Flyers Association were out in force mate🤣.

Hiya Ed001 and Red's, I just want to say how very, very proud I am of the team but also how they are far far better at seeing our game's much more professionally than previous seasons. Klopp really has got the measure of the PL and possibility is use of subs is getting better. Onwards and upwards Red's👍.

BarryinLouth

{Ed001's Note - very professional I thought, an incredibly dominant performance. The Saints fans are saying on our Southampton site that the positive from today was getting to watch us play!}


1.) 22 Sep 2018 21:06:30
Wow ed01, that is very complimentary. Fair play to the saints.

I think it's clear the league is going to come down to the games with Chelsea and City and the other big boys. Doing spurs away has given me the belief that we are going to lift the league.

We need to keep big virgil fit though.

{Ed001's Note - I hope you are right.}


2.) 22 Sep 2018 21:16:07
Big respect to the Southampton fan's in that case Ed mate.

{Ed001's Note - I feel sorry for them being lumbered with Hughes.}


3.) 22 Sep 2018 21:39:23
Totally agree Ed001 he's a dinosaur mate.

{Ed001's Note - very much so.}

I think that it's rather refreshing to see the team being mentioned as a whole as opposed to us focusing on one man and although it's obvious that Salah is well out of form his stats so far this season pretty much mirror last season so I don't think we should worry just yet. Lastly, it's worth mentioning that it's refreshing to see disagreements being dealt with by debate as it should be. This is the whole point of this site, hopefully some of the vegetables see how this is done and we can encourage it more. To start one here, VVD and Gomez are the best defensive pairing we have had since Sami and Carra. Thoughts?

Scouse he’s not out of form- he’s just not hit the same level but that’s not standard ‘form’ I think he’s actually doing just as well as last year at the same time - stats aside. Only thing that changed is the fans expectations. I remember at this stage last year we were all purring how great it was we had a great option to mane playing on the other wing. That was before he went on to have the season of a lifetime.

Anyone that knows me on this site will know that I have always been a massive supporter of Hendo but for some reason that I will never know the lad has a element of doubters, as to why I will never bloody know. Now lad's I have said it time and time again GET OFF HIS BACK please. The lad would run through a brick wall for the club etc, etc so give it a rest for those of you who doubt his value to the team/ club. Because if you really do doubt him well all I can can say is that YOU HAVEN'T A CLUE!
