Looks like Lallana is back in the squad.

Drogie

1.) 01 May 2018 16:35:48
Wouldn't it be wonderful if he came on were loosing and he scores the goal to put us through.
Have to admit I don't see us winning tomorrow.


2.) 01 May 2018 16:48:39
why are you so negative, negativeredwalter?

Say it with me- WE WILL WIN! YNWA Liverpool!


3.) 01 May 2018 16:54:47
Are you mad? That would mean most of us would have had a heart attack by then.


4.) 01 May 2018 17:03:09
We won’t lose.


5.) 01 May 2018 17:24:57
He not available to play just part of the squad.


6.) 01 May 2018 19:10:01
Mr cup half empty negativity strikes again. Go have a pint mate an cheer up.


7.) 01 May 2018 19:14:30
Why so negative all the time Walt?


8.) 01 May 2018 19:26:44
I ran this through my model and it says 2-2 is the score tomorrow.


9.) 01 May 2018 20:01:12
Lallana is great but I wouldn’t put a pound on him scoring in most games.

{Ed0333's Note - Lalana is great?


10.) 01 May 2018 21:04:46
Great at Cruyff turns.


11.) 01 May 2018 23:06:43
Lallana is great. spot on. Love him.

{Ed0333's Note - Lalana is not great. Repeat after me...


 

 

23 Mar 2018 21:39:33
Gomez injured. Can't stand this whole England friendly rubbish.

No doubt Southgate will play Hendo against Italy, whilst Klopp is trying to manage his situation.

😡😡😡😡.

Drogie

1.) 24 Mar 2018 13:49:50
On the plus TAA needs the game time to improve.


2.) 24 Mar 2018 20:27:09
I must admit, I was annoyed to see Hendo stay on for the whole match!


3.) 24 Mar 2018 20:35:07
I'd wait and see Drogie, I have a feeling there is more understanding and respect with Southgate in terms of keeping upto date with club managers. It's just a hunch but he gives the impression he sees the bigger picture whereas in the past it's almost been a club vs country mentality. Let's see.


4.) 24 Mar 2018 22:44:00
It would also be nice for clubs (and fans for that matter) to understand the importance of the national team. I for one want Hendo to excel at national level and the national team to do well and I'm sure he does too. If that means two games then so be it

Sadly that's the problem with the premier league and its inflated opinion of itself. It should never be club v country rather the national side being the pinnacle, not the champions league. Germany get it and are successful - england teams don't and hence, in recent decades, are not.


 

 

27 Sep 2017 14:32:46
Ed002.

So it looks like Ancelloti will be leaving Bayern at the end of the season.

I remember you mentioning something about Klopp wanting to manage Bayern or vica versa.

Do you think there will be an approach from Bayern for Klopp if Ancelloti does leave?

Cheers.

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - Yes it is on the cards that CA will be leaving a year early and Bayern are indeed considering their options. Whilst Klopp did want the job this will not be good timing and will be a year ahead of previous thoughts. Right now I would not expect an approach.}


1.) 27 Sep 2017 16:25:33
Then maybe we can have a exchange with Bayern.


2.) 27 Sep 2017 19:25:59
Klopp's profile has taken a serious beating and will not be on top 3 of BM radar.



They will be looking at Hoffenheim mgr and others.


3.) 28 Sep 2017 02:42:33
HAHAHAH

Klopp's profile has "taken a serious beating"?

How exactly? Took a struggling side from 8th to 4th, plays exciting creative football. We've had some struggles recently, but any idea his stock has thus fallen seems petty and silly.


4.) 28 Sep 2017 07:12:20
Klopp can't seem to set up a defence so his rep has been hit surely. The UK media have fallen out of love with him as have some fans.

Hope he stays though.


5.) 28 Sep 2017 14:22:40
Ancellotti has just been sacked!


6.) 28 Sep 2017 14:35:21
Before I say, I just want to clarify before anyone has a go at me I do not want Klopp to leave or am I trying to slate our Manager. Ed01 in the unlikely event Klopp goes to Bayern who realistically would you have to replace him at the club? Asking really to get your thoughts on Managers you think highly of after your recent article about overrated managers.

{Ed001's Note - I honestly cannot think of a realistic choice.}


7.) 28 Sep 2017 15:00:54
Rafa Benitez? Would jump at the chance to return to the club, and he would bloody do something about our awful defense.
And before people jump on my back, I want to clarify I do not want Klopp to leave. BUt its inevitable he will leave at some point for Bayern, so we need to be prepared for that.


8.) 28 Sep 2017 15:25:55
Good Shout Buzzer can't think of any other option apart from him to be honest. Matter of time before he falls out with Ashley at Newcastle so I agree a reckon he would definitely be up for a return to us.


9.) 28 Sep 2017 15:43:19
As our Sporting director is lacking in experience, I'd replace Klopp with a more experienced manager. They could also then act as a mentor for Pepjin Lijnders.

Someone who is exceptional at the job, a seasoned veteran, but relatively realistic; like Jorge Jesus, Mauricio Sarri or Carlo Ancelotti.

I'd love Allegri or Simeone but they are not going to leave the clubs they are at, for Liverpool mid season.

{Ed002's Note - Super Stevie Nicol is available.}


10.) 28 Sep 2017 15:56:48
No thanks 002! Nicol was a great player, but he is a little bit of a mouth piece nowadays! Haha. He has been publically scratching towards a fair few current players as well!

{Ed002's Note - You don't think a dream team of SSN and SSG would work then?}


11.) 28 Sep 2017 16:31:22
Can i gouge my eyes out instead?


12.) 28 Sep 2017 17:08:22
Tom werner says our new sporting director is world class . After his first summer in charge of transfers world class at what?


13.) 28 Sep 2017 18:18:24
Ancelloti was my first choice over Klopp, would be interesting to see what team would be had CA been appointed.

{Ed025's Note - a boring one..


14.) 28 Sep 2017 19:08:00
Klopp can set up a defence, he's done it before. Lack of transfers is our undoing as it has been for years. Way before he came.


15.) 28 Sep 2017 19:23:22
IF and that's a big if klopp leaves id like the german coach lowe, id love poch tbh rbl manager or go big for simeone.


16.) 28 Sep 2017 23:10:38
Silva from Watford anyone?


17.) 29 Sep 2017 01:12:36
Leonardo Jardim?


18.) 29 Sep 2017 00:00:47
Disappointed in Klopp. Going to Bayern from Dortmund seems like such a betrayal, same as all those players who moved. Don't know how others see it, especially German fans? Maybe it's expected?

Also feel like the "if I only coach three clubs. " speech last year was a load of horsesh1t.

{Ed001's Note - what are you talking about? He has gone nowhere yet.}


19.) 29 Sep 2017 08:05:49
Unbelievable. Ancelotti gets sacked and Robboz has already pegged Klopp as Bayern's new manager.
Clueless.


20.) 29 Sep 2017 08:14:37
From what I've read here, it sounds like it's only a matter of time.

Okay, I will reserve my disappointment until he does.


21.) 29 Sep 2017 13:31:59
If Klopp does get sacked there's this young Northern Irish managed in Scotland at the moment doing well

Brodgers or something like that.

He might be worth a shout.

{Ed025's Note - i could manage celtic and win that league dawn..


22.) 29 Sep 2017 14:14:09
That was a joke btw. didn't think i had to qualify that.

{Ed025's Note - i did get that mate..


23.) 29 Sep 2017 14:29:10
Maybe we could go for Koeman once he gets removed.

Sorry Ed25, could resist 😜😜.

{Ed025's Note - im better than him i can assure you drogie..


24.) 29 Sep 2017 15:55:26
Got his initial team selection wrong last night mate. IMO.

{Ed025's Note - every week for me drogie mate, playing rooney is his main flaw..


25.) 29 Sep 2017 23:09:52
Seriously discussing klopp replacement? Whilst he has many failings he is surely the best option at this time.

If he can sort the defence out then who knows how far he can take us.


26.) 30 Sep 2017 23:11:44
Flash, are you dim?

Read Ed2's response to the first post in this thread.

Apparently Klopp wanted the Bayern job, although at this point it is a year ahead of what the previously thought timescale might have been. This sounds to me like Klopp may be off after next season, or thereabouts.

The haters can give this a thumbs down all they want but it's there for all to see.


27.) 01 Oct 2017 15:56:13
XABI wants to manage! ! :-)


28.) 01 Oct 2017 16:22:00
I think you meant signing Rooney ed025.


29.) 03 Oct 2017 00:17:25
This is about the only statement that Ed002 has made about Klopp that I genuinely can't see. Especially when he does things like this. It's just my opinion of course.

Interesting article on the club website regarding the re development of the Annie Road End.

One of the points raised was that the club needs to eat into the season ticket waiting list, with less emphasis on coperate.

Whilst seats in bums ( new season tickets ) does not bring in the revenue coperate does, for me this makes total sense.

Drogie

1.) 20 Jun 2018 19:02:30
Without having any idea about the finances of football, maybe they decided that a better atmosphere to carry the team to potential trophies may be worth more than the corporate seats generate. Doubtful though!


2.) 20 Jun 2018 19:57:37
Sorry but seats in bums makes no sense. Sounds pretty painful actually.

Happy Friday all.

E001, 02, 333 and 25 and Posters.

Moving away form transfer, what's everyone's views on safe stand? I'm torn to be honest. Whilst the subject is a sensitive issue there's a couple of reasons why I'm in two minds.

My seat on the kop is block 106 row 22 so I'm in relatively low position. We tend to stay seated apart from when Arsenal, City, United etc come to town ( and European games) when pretty much the whole kop stands. Where as the back end of the Kop stands no matter who we play.

For those of you that go to away games you'll know that we always stand, no matter whom we play. It's the same when away supports come to Anfield, they all stand.

Drogie

1.) 15 Jun 2018 12:09:20
Standing lends itself to a better atmosphere imo. When I sit (which is dictated by those around) I find myself and those around are much quieter but this also coincides with the magnitude of the game. Bigger team-the crowd normally stands and creates a better atmosphere. Lesser team-fans sit and maybe expect a win and don’t get behind the team as much.
If it can be trialed and works I’m for it but I can imagine others will be against it. My dad was at Hillsborough and didn’t renew his season ticket after that and refused to take me on the kop as a child until it went seating and I imagine the thought won’t sit right with a lot of people who lost love ones that day.


2.) 15 Jun 2018 12:15:41
Whilst being very sympathetic towards our fans and what happened in Sheffield, I always loved standing on the Kop. I’ve never felt the atmosphere has been the same since but that may be for lots of reasons and not just standing. I’m pro safe standing and giving people a choice about where they would prefer to be in a ground.


3.) 15 Jun 2018 13:03:53
If the families of the 96 say “no” to safe standing for whatever reason then the answer has to be no.


4.) 15 Jun 2018 16:55:29
People only stand anyway. What happened in Yorkshire would never happen again. I totally understand liverpool reluctance. YNWA x.


5.) 15 Jun 2018 17:25:13
I'm very much against it. 'What happened in Yorkshire would never happen again' sorry PH but you can't say that mate, it may, if there's even a slight risk it shouldn't be allowed and there is always a risk. Huge no from me.

Whilst it may create a better atmosphere standing, we're talking about peoples lives and when it comes down to people being safe imo there's no discussion. What happened before we never want to see again and I don't think we ever will but you just never know. I'd leave things as they are.


6.) 15 Jun 2018 19:56:08
Where’s the proof it’s “safe”?


 

 

13 Jun 2018 21:55:42
Big day tomorrow.

Forget England and the World Cup.
Fixtures come out tomorrow, first one I look for.

United away.

Drogie

1.) 13 Jun 2018 22:03:31
Mine is boxing day. When I was a kid my dad would always get us tickets for the game if it was at home. Always had my fingers crossed.


2.) 13 Jun 2018 22:28:57
Home derby for me 👍.


3.) 13 Jun 2018 22:40:19
Agreed utd home eve home uts away eve away (ron) just what i look for ey lad.


4.) 13 Jun 2018 22:45:46
Opening game then the bitters. God I hate them.


5.) 13 Jun 2018 22:53:27
Mine is us finally getting a home game first. With the crowd roaring us on it gives you the most likely chance of winning and therefore building momentum and confidence from the off.

The first game has been mainly away for the majority of recent years.


6.) 14 Jun 2018 01:24:39
Yep, we've been away, but what about that Arsenal game? Mane's goal was my goal of the season.


7.) 14 Jun 2018 02:54:40
Let's hope we don't h a ve so many 12 30 games this time. I always find the run in interesting. Ya know? If we have any of the big teams in the last three games, you can be sure it'll be important and thus ons of the biggest of the season. Utd edges it but I think we will develop a healthy rivalry with city over the next few years, never as big as utd but still, similar to Chelsea in the noughties.


8.) 14 Jun 2018 07:08:29
Burkeyboy - That was a cracker, I was at the Emirates and it was an amazing goal! Still prefer first game at home though - we can beat arsenal away 4-3 second game 😂.


9.) 14 Jun 2018 07:16:15
I dread Utd away, our record is abysmal there drogie.


10.) 14 Jun 2018 08:47:42
I don't think it's possible for 2 top 6 sides to play eachother for the first game if I remember rightly. When we played Arsenal we finished 7th the season before.


11.) 14 Jun 2018 09:20:16
I actually search for Newcastle. Just love those games and it’s a guaranteed 3 points 😜.

{Ed002's Note - And at the start of last season? And 15/16?}


12.) 14 Jun 2018 11:26:59
I live in Spurs country so it’s Spurs Home and away for me (I can’t stand them or their delusions of grandeur) then the obvious Utd and Everton games.


13.) 14 Jun 2018 10:21:40
Shush ed2. It’s a guaranteed 3 points 😉.


 

 

09 Jun 2018 19:55:02
Didn't Southampton give us a similar vibe over VVD?

Slight difference though, Fekir is a tremendous player and can see either city, united or Chelsea paying the money and snapping him up 😂😂.

Drogie

1.) 09 Jun 2018 22:48:05
Van Diyk isn't a tremendous player?

If I remember correctly, City wanted Van Diyk but Van Diyk wanted Liverpool. Maybe Fekir also wants Liverpool?


 

 

09 Jun 2018 09:32:20
Quick question for Ed002.
A while back you mentioned Amazon could be involved in showing live PL matches and now it's gone to fruition. How does that work in regards to whom do they pay for the rights? With Sky having the monopoly for so many years, then BT and now Amazon,

To your knowledge, are there any other companies looking to obtain future showing rights of PL games or even CL matches?

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - They pay the Premier League the same as all buyers - but just to be clear, all they have is 20 games from two match weeks - so they will show all 10 PL games from a midweek or holiday weekend on two occasions - that is it.

There are others who in the future may look to buying some of the small packaes like Amazon - Google and Netflix are the obvious two organisations but it has been suggested that even Facebook could look to experimenting with it in the future. There remains one package of games similar to the Amazon package to be sold yet, and Sky might well bid for that.}


1.) 09 Jun 2018 10:45:26
Ok, thanks Ed002.


2.) 09 Jun 2018 12:10:48
Does selling in packs work in the long term ed? It feels to me like it’s impossible to follow your team in the UK because you’d have to buy so many subscriptions because games are spread over so many channels. but in Asia every game is televised on one subscription. One expensive pack and you get every PL game.

Between the two, it feels like the former model may potentially maximise income in one year, but it seems a big risk that not being able to follow ones team regularly may in the end hurt the viewership of the sport? People may in the end choose to follow other teams or sports and just watch the big matches?

Interested in your thoughts on this balancing act between maximising income and broadening the viewership and following of the sport which has to be good in the long term.

{Ed002's Note - Putting aside the money, it will work better with the Amazon deal and the second small pack as it means all 10 weekend games or midweek games will be on television, so you can follow your side regardless of who it is. If that had been with Sky they may not show a midweek game between Cardiff City and Liverpool whereas now you will be able to opt to pay your £x and watch it or not. It is not to do with maximising income from the sales, it is to do with broadening the viewing options.}


3.) 09 Jun 2018 12:38:39
I said years ago the streaming sites will get involved. It's a logical step. Wouldn't surprise me if soon you could pay for a team subscription, pay a set fee and get all Liverpool games but no others streamed live.

{Ed002's Note - That is what some clubs would like to do but they are aware that it is potentially financially crippling for them. As an example, if all of the clubs did this who would provide the feeds? Liverpool don't own an outside broadcast organisation they could use.}

Risky strategy.
If he did end up at Madrid it would not only undo all the work involved in negotiations but most worryingly, leave us scratching around for an alternative with not much time. It would be a disaster.

I’m 46, supporting since a similar time and I agree with Johnny.

So we ether go half hearted and buy Butland level or go all out for a top keeper and spend £80m.

Spot on Ron.

Keeper and a CB.

If VVD gets injured then it’s back to square one with Lovren, Matip and Klavan. The biggest weakness in the team.
