Congratulations to brendan rodgers. Unbelievable achievement to go undefeated throughout entire domestic season. How do you top that though.


1.) 28 May 2017 12:47:09
Getting past the CL group stages.


2.) 28 May 2017 12:48:05
Do it in a competitive league?


3.) 28 May 2017 12:50:13
He could top that by moving to a competitive league and actually try to win something that means more than damp squib. The Scottish league is a joke and BR proved that. No doubt he will be a decent manager in the coming years but his time at Celtic proves nothing.


4.) 28 May 2017 12:50:38
It's only happened because Rangers are so poor.


5.) 28 May 2017 12:54:39
It's a decent achievement, but the jury's still out on Rodgers. If he's half as good as he thinks he is, he'll get out of that Mickey Mouse league ASAP.


6.) 28 May 2017 13:22:44
I suspect it will be a platform to get to a major European club. After the Liverpool saga he needs Celtic to help rebuild his reputation. He may well get another PL club but I doubt it will be one of the top 6 again. After all, how many successfully Rangers or Celtic managers have gone on to
manage top sides?


7.) 28 May 2017 13:28:41
Seriously, even in the Scottish league, going a whole domestic season unbeaten is some achievement.


8.) 28 May 2017 15:12:09
Unbeaten and the treble hasn't been done by celtic since 2002. And they have had better teams since then.

But they have never been unbeaten as far as i know. that's a special achievement.

Haters clear out. aren't we the best fabs in the world. Everyone congradulated benitez. let's give rodgers some credit. he's not here anymore.


9.) 28 May 2017 15:51:34
If it was so simple it would always happen. Domestic unbeaten treble in debut season, credit where it is due.

He won't be posting in this site though, due to the character limit. Ha.


10.) 28 May 2017 15:53:36
I feel so sorry for the next team he in England he ends up at (that's if he can get his head through the door) because the man is a fraud.


11.) 28 May 2017 15:54:48
Neil Lennon had a much better record than him in the CL so BR going undefeated and getting smashed by Barcelona 7-0 means absolutely nothing.
Also, It depends on what you view as an achievement. The SL is just above the standard of League One so for me, until he does it in a league that is reciprocal to Europe's Sunday League, he is still a woeful manager who will not be touched by any big club in the PL or Europe regardless of how many.


12.) 28 May 2017 16:22:12
Waro good to see you back, we missed your special brand of cynicism and realism on these pages. 😉.


13.) 28 May 2017 16:08:48
Remember when Brendan led us into the champs league.

It was embarrassing.

The man is all about self promoting himself on the European stage.

He ultimately wants to manage Barcelona or Real.

He needs to get REAL.


14.) 28 May 2017 18:59:20
Wenger did it in a competitive league, the premier league.
That was a special achievement.
What Rodgers achieved was impressive, but far from a special achievement.


15.) 28 May 2017 19:26:32
Jesus christ.

Klopp has won nothing. Failed in two finals. Failed in a semi finals. Just scrapped fourth on the final day. doesn't play the youth.

Hes just won the treble wheres the good sportsman ship. He hasbt got a great tean either. Lennon did have van dijk and wanyama ones about to be about a 50 mil pound player.

Well done rodgers.

{Ed007's Note - And Neil Lennon's Celtic team were beaten 6-1 by Barca in 2013.}


16.) 28 May 2017 21:07:08
Thank you ed.

Noones saying he's the next madrid coach. Or coming to spank the prem into shape.

But for me when he joined, all the publicity it created, i knew he had to win the league minimum.

But to win it unbeaten and the treble, that's like absolutely rediculous.

And then for the best fans in the world? To not be able to give the man a clap and move on without slagging him is absolutely abismal.

And lord a man whose done nothing. Absolutely nothing. Just for moanings sake. Brendan hadnt spent anything compared to klopp at this stage and nesrly won the league, klopps team bottled it in january. You will say that was suarez, well without mane all of klopps tricks went to crap didn't they.

The mans great and will do well but he's done squat yet. Just failure. If were still liverpool. if were some b team pub group who get pissed at half time and stagger through gamea then failer must be acceptable.

Again well done rodge lad!

{Ed007's Note - I'm hoping Rodgers stays up here for years mate. I seen someone on here suggesting signing Paddy Roberts and the usual bs answers of it only being Scottish football etc etc So that means they wouldn't want Kieran Tierney or Dembele? Simunovic would walk into the current Liverpool team and Stuart Armstrong has been one of the best midfielders in the UK this season.}


17.) 28 May 2017 21:23:33
Only in his dreams, Dermot can he manage Real or Barca. The guy is still a fraud which is why he went to a one team European Sunday League in Celtic. He went there to win trophies with no one to challenge him and like the self-promoting and arrogant individual he is, he prolly thinks he can use that to get a better job at a big club in the PL or Europe. Like I said, only in his dreams.


18.) 28 May 2017 23:07:33
I know ed.

The problem with the premier league is were so big headed every one elses success is lowered.

The scottish league, no league anywhere is an achievement if you go unbeaten.

But yeah im certain with noone leaving, a few more shrewd signings. Roberts, id go for brannagan from us, a big youth signing could be someone like reece oxford.

Then one or two more experienced players.

Rodgers kept. You will have a good year in the cl.

{Ed007's Note - Football fans will respect achievements but EPL fans will knock anything outside the league - not team - they support. Look at the money EPL sides spend yet Celtic will be judged in the CL? When are English teams going to be judged on Europe when you see the money they spend. Yeah Celtic got pumped by Barca but so did PSG and will we look at Arsenal from the best league in the world against Bayern Munich, what was it 10-2?
And yet Man City couldn't beat Brendan Rodgers Celtic. The people who slag Scottish football obviously don't watch it, why would they when Sky would rather show Watford v Burnley with their sell out 12,000 tourists with their half n half scarves and selfie sticks.}


19.) 29 May 2017 00:29:37
I don't particularly like the fella, but in any league, to go unbeaten domestically in 3 competitions, is a tremendous achievement. He's coaxed a level of performance out of Celtic that nobody has touched for years.

I fully expect progress in the Champions League for Celtic this coming season, and I also predict that Rodgers will stay at Celtic until they (inevitably) win 10 in a row. That will be huge for him personally.

{Ed007's Note - It'll be huge for the fans too. I'm not old enough to remember us doing 9 in a row and winning the EC or losing another EC final so these are very special times as a Celtic supporter. And long may it continue!!!}


20.) 29 May 2017 10:38:07
Yeah ed. I remember tottenham doing amazing aswel. Was it semis or not out of the group stage?

You lot gave city there best game after they had won every game for the first two months of the season.

Little crappy celtic and rubbish rodgers where the ones to stop city in their tracks.

You get 60k a week fans. Known all round the world. And do fantastic with the budget you have. End of the day it doesn't matter if you have money but spend is badly. like erm liverpool.

Brendan gave me the best season of my life so far. We were phenominal that year. Battered everyone. Goals, excitement and domination. Ill never forget him for that. He got sacked so everything else that happened lost him his job. Done now.

Made up for him and yourselves!

{Ed007's Note - Spurs dropped down to the EL and were put out by Gent, Gent! With the amount of English teams in the CL next season it's a certainty that we'll get one of them, I'd fancy our chances at home against any of them except Chelsea - we'd probably draw with them ;)


 

 

06 May 2017 17:28:31
Happy birthday graeme souness. In 7 seasons as lfc player he won
5 leagues, 4 league cup,3 european cups. Best captain and midfielder in lfc history.


1.) 06 May 2017 17:48:18
Agreed.


2.) 06 May 2017 17:59:09
Gerrard was better at both, just unfortunate he was in many bad teams.


3.) 06 May 2017 18:11:20
Gerrard better than Souness?

As good as Gerrard was, he is not even in the same league.

This is like a United fan claiming Pogba is better than Keane.


4.) 06 May 2017 18:03:38
Absolutely.


5.) 06 May 2017 18:40:03
Sourness best ever midfielder. Xabi second best CM. Gerrard the most complete midfielder in past 20 years.


6.) 06 May 2017 19:10:32
Well yeah because Pogba has been as important to Utd as gerrard has for us.


7.) 06 May 2017 20:35:48
Souness gets my vote as well. Just. Likening it to Pogba and Keane is absolutely absurd, though.


8.) 06 May 2017 22:14:54
Look at what Souness won. He was the best midfielder in world football for nearly a decade.

Gerrard was never even the best in England and won just 1 major trophy with us. You can say he played in a worse team, but his dictating to the management where he wanted to play and who he wanted to play with was a big part of why he never got to play in a better side. He was the main culprit for a lot of poor performances as well.

Always turned up for the bug European nights, cup finals, or derby games so he is still a legend for some of the games he won us. Just don't think you can compare him to a player who helped us dominate Europe. Gerrard was very much a modern example of too much player power and celebrity life style (like Pogba, hence my loose comparison that everyone has taken too seriously. Sighs) . Souness was a true leader, undeniably world class, and a proper old school player who left everything on the pitch every game. A managers dream. Thankfully Gerrard looks to have matured and come back as a really level headed coach. Hopefully one day he can win the league with us from the dug out. He can't possibly be a worse manager than Souness!


9.) 06 May 2017 22:35:22
Love Souness.

Kills me to see him still as I feel sad how the fans fell out with him.


10.) 06 May 2017 23:04:44
there's a reason GERRARD was voted 2nd best lfc player after Kenny in our history.

Love souness but comparing him to GERRARD who carried lfc in his shoulders and WHATEVER lfc won in modern footy til this day we're talking abt has made HUGE HUGE CONTRIBUTION which is more then souness who played in Great lfc sides with some great players under one of the Greatest managers in our history.


11.) 06 May 2017 23:33:06
Although Souness as an LFC player was before my time, born 84. My first memories of him were as manager which unfortunately didn't work out as we would have wanted but what a player, certainly the type we could do with now in the middle of the park. Although in the modern game his style would not suit unfortunately. Stevie as a midfielder had everything, football ability, intelligence and a a toughness similar to that of Souness. Obviously not as successful trophy wise as Souness but in my opinion a better all round footballer. I really would like to get the Eds opinion this?


12.) 07 May 2017 03:37:34
If Souness was playing in the modern era he would have spent most of each season banned.

He certainly was a Liverpool great and one of the best of his generation but I have also no doubt that he was the dirtiest player that I remember wearing the red shirt.

I mean xxx bad.

I also didn't like that him lifting the European cup as our captain was his last appearance as a Liverpool player.

A good trait or a bad trait but Souness always put himself first before any club.

He still makes his money talking get about his time with the mighty reds but at the time he took the foreign payday breaking thousands of fans hearts.
For all the rumoured character problems of Stevie G. (I think bull) he always put LFC first and whose actions after lifting the Champions league trophy was to say I'm staying, how could I leave.
When he could have gone to any club in Europe.

Souness chalk, Gerrard the finest Lancashire cheese.

End of.

{Ed001's Note - Souness was a clever man, he would have been a totally different player if he was around now. He was good enough to adapt, being dirty was not what made him great.}


13.) 07 May 2017 09:49:29
Gerrard was the more gifted all round footballer, but Souness was undisputably the better leader.


14.) 07 May 2017 09:50:37
Gerrard wasn't the best midfielder in England? Did I just read that? He was the best in Europe for a few years and probably our second greatest ever player.


 

 

05 May 2017 17:45:59
Ed do you think the future of the kop maybe rail seating like at celtic. Make it general admission so that kids can stand with their mates and the atmosphere will come back.

{Ed001's Note - no idea mate. However the atmosphere will not come back because of standing. It is not going to come back while 90% of the crowd are too busy playing games, taking photos or recording vids on their phones. Every club is struggling to get a proper atmosphere.}


1.) 05 May 2017 18:06:14
Ed am I right in saying its law in the England that all top flight games have to be all seating, and it would have to change before any standing could be introduced?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know off the top of my head. Sorry.}


2.) 05 May 2017 18:47:13
Genuine question why does anybody feel the need to stand for 90 minutes to watch football.
Much more comfortable to be sitting not being knocked in to etc.
If the fa or whoever is in charge of allowing this did allow standing to happen I think it would be a disaster.
It would be like being in a mosh pit more bad behaviour and sorry to say it end up in sceens similar to West ham utd early in the season.


3.) 05 May 2017 19:06:36
Amazing that Liverpool fans of all fans would even consider it!

No thank you. My local side had a standing section when I was younger (Rushden and Diamonds), but it was almost always empty by the time they got rid of it. It was just unsafe, uncomfortable and full of knuckle draggers.


4.) 05 May 2017 19:08:04
Agree with Walter.
I don't know why anyone with any knowledge of Hillsbrough would even "go there" with this subject.
Some of the best atmospheres I've experienced have been in all-seaters. You don't need to stand to create an atmosphere.

I think it would require a change in the law and I think that is very reassuring.


5.) 05 May 2017 19:24:39
Thanks Ron you put over my point much better than I did. What you said is so true good on you sir.


6.) 05 May 2017 19:45:42
I think the modern football fan is different as well, more reserved and less likely to shout or sing in public, all the last generation who did shout and sing are usually half asleep these days due to old age 😉.


7.) 05 May 2017 21:02:43
Obviously a different sport but my local rugby team has a standing section. It's always dead whereas the seated part it packed. I don't see how it would add anything to be honest, it's uncomfortable to stand that long and not terribly convenient. Wouldn't necessarily increase the capacity either.


8.) 05 May 2017 23:50:34
All the loudest away fans stand at the match.

I would compare it to an ale house, whereas you sit with yer bird for a quiet one, and you stand up at the bar with the boys for a rowdy one.

Seating should be for lazy gets, arl ones, day trippers, people with packed lunch boxes and the corporate weak clapping lot.


9.) 06 May 2017 10:04:03
I'm sorry but i completely agree with the original post and believe it is the very first thing we need to sort out.

The reason so many so called 'modern football fans' are rife at the games is because they are forced to sit down. It makes you drowsy, depressed when its not going well and kills the atmosphere completely.

If you had at least half of the seats being standing, the camera toting boo boys would definately think twice about whether they wanted to go. To hell with comfort and leaving before half time to get a pizza, it isn't theatre, a tourist attraction, its a football club. People seem to have totally forgotten what that means. You should be going to a football match and having a great time win, lose or draw, and it is an OBLIGATION to make noise for 90 minutes and support your team, not a choice.

I came to this realisation about standing up when i was at a gig some time ago. 75% of the people there were standing up, making lots of noise, having a great time, in a safe, controlled environment. The other 25% were in the upper tier, sat down, looking fairly glum and passive but still appreciating the music. I remember looking at this and thinking if we just applied that idea to anfield how much better the games would be, bringing in the younger fans who want to create an atmosphere and have a good time, while not completely alienating those who are not capable of or do not want to stand for 90 minutes.

I also think its a total embarrassment that everton, despite having far less income than us, provide more affordable tickets and actual deals and incentives to get young fans into the ground, and we cannot. I really do believe all of this is the very first thing we need to sort out if we are truly change the fortunes and attitude of our club for the better. You want people to stop moaning and being pessimistic? Maybe if they were allowed to have a great time at matches no matter the result, that would be achievable.


10.) 06 May 2017 10:06:18
Yes MK Scouser, it truly is amazing that a fair few Liverpool fans would actually prefer to be objective about this and recognise that safe standing in 2017 is indeed safe! It grinds my gears when 'super fans' like you try to shame other LFC fans out of even talking about the idea just because of one tragically mismanaged day in a completely different time almost 30 years ago. It's like refusing to ride in a 2017 BMW car because in 1989 your friends were killed when their old Ford Pinto's brakes failed.

I bet you're one of those LFC fans who shouts down any talk about safe standing while drooling about how good BvB's Yellow Wall is.


11.) 06 May 2017 10:08:50
Of course safe standing would improve atmosphere.

- Groups of mates can stand together instead being allocated into seats in various parts of the ground. Everyone knows it's easier to create an atmosphere when you've got the camaraderie of mates sitting together.

- Nobody sings when they're sitting down.

Atmospheres are only good in big games because *everyone* in the Kop naturally stands up for them. The problem is against small teams when everyone is sitting down and you have to be that brave bastard to stand up amongst a sea of silent people sitting down and, sadly these days, risk being told to shut up by a local, which is what my mate saw when he went to the Stoke and City matches.

Yes, smartphones have been a nuisance, but they're not going to go away, so we need ideas that mitigate their negative effects on the atmosphere because we can't just ban phones. If people are all standing up and getting bouncy, then don't you think they're more likely to forget about playing games on their phone?

There will be an argument that all-seating used to work at Anfield, but only until phone technology got better and clusters of mates sitting together reduced. Seriously, it's not hard to figure out why away fans produce much better atmosphere: they're all standing up, and there is more camaraderie. That's it.

People who want to censor discussion about safe standing because of Hillsborough can go screw themselves.


12.) 06 May 2017 10:09:26
I'd be more inclined to just put large signal blockers around the stadiums so phones just don't work, well at least get signal or connect to the net.
Or just flat out ban phones in stadiums or make a Douchy area beside the smoking area for phone users!


13.) 06 May 2017 12:06:28
I'm 20 years old and a student, and I've got a load of Liverpool fan mates despite being from about 70 miles away from Liverpool. Me and my mates would love to go to a game together and I guarantee we would be chanting for the full 90, the problem is it's practically impossible to get tickets, and even if we did get tickets they wouldn't be together.

{Ed001's Note - it is really not that difficult to get tickets, nor to get them together. Have you tried joining your local supporters club and speaking to them? Most official supporters clubs get an allocation of tickets, they can often have a batch that get returned unsold, which are the ones you usually find being sold on the day on the website.}


14.) 06 May 2017 17:09:15
T-Diggity, you hear scousers bleat on about tourists supposedly ruining the atmosphere when in actual fact, many tourists actually want to sing. But how the hell is a tourist expected to start songs when not even the locals will do it? Locals that, by a considerable quantity, take their weekly visits to Anfield way too much for granted.

My mate was sitting in the main stand against Stoke, and a tourist nearby tried to get a chant going. A scouser sitting near him yelled at him to shut up. Tourists like you aren't the problem, you're the excited ones who want their rare experience to be actually as awesome as possible.


15.) 06 May 2017 18:20:35
Thanks Ed, I hadnt thought of that so I'll have a look in to it, the times I've tried on the website I've just never been successful unfortunately. And I think you're right Robin, you should never be told to shut up for supporting your team. I wouldn't say I'm a tourist as such though, I used to go fairly regularly when I lived in Merseyside and my step dad had a season ticket but I wish I could go more. One thing I've noticed at football games in general is that the season ticket holders will chant for a bit of the game but then spend the majority of the time bitching about the team, what use is that?

{Ed001's Note - a friend of mine used to get his tickets through knowing the head of one of the supporter's clubs. He would only get offered the unsold ones before they were returned, but he used to manage to get to 10+ games a season that way.}


16.) 06 May 2017 19:17:05
I'm definitely going to have to check that out then, thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - hope it helps.}


17.) 07 May 2017 10:10:35
Yeah I know you're not a tourist per se, but you know what I mean. a Liverpool fan on a visit to Anfield rather than a weekly routine. That's part of the problem, some locals take it for granted and treat it like some any old routine.


 

 

24 Apr 2017 18:55:10
Hi ed, who do think lallana will come in for lucas or origi.

{Ed001's Note - good question, I would say Lucas, but Origi has not been playing well, so it makes it a tough decision. Personally I think it has to be Lucas, because Lallana is nowhere near as good when he plays further forward.}


1.) 24 Apr 2017 19:09:11
True ed you lose pace if lallana plays forward as well. Could do with firmino playing central though, if only we had mane.

{Ed001's Note - perhaps it is time to just give the youngsters their head? There is a bit of pace there to put on the wing. I know it didn't work against Stoke, but that does not mean it won't work every time.}


2.) 24 Apr 2017 19:17:53
Maybe Origi because I think Origi plays best as a super-sub.


3.) 24 Apr 2017 19:25:24
Origi has great ability but he is so frustrating as he doesn't put himself about enough and he doesn't seem have a football brain.


4.) 24 Apr 2017 20:15:31
Yikes ed wants to give the youngsters head.

{Ed001's Note - hahaha, I really should check back what I write! The Jezza Kyle generation always takes things down to the lowest possible denominator after all.....}


5.) 24 Apr 2017 20:36:57
Depends on what Klopp thinks isn't working - on the players merit Origi sits, on Lallana merit Lucas sits. I'd guess Lucas.


6.) 24 Apr 2017 20:48:42
I'd have Lallana and Wilson in for Lucas and Origi.


 

 

22 Apr 2017 18:12:12
Ed what's your thoughts on gerrard at the academy, everyone's presuming it's a progression until he's first team manager but what if he's not a good coach do you think Liverpool will have the balls to sack him.

{Ed001's Note - not everyone is presuming that. Gerrard has been doing well so far, inspiring the kids. If he turns out to only be able to do that, then he will not progress all the way with Liverpool. The club don't need to sack him, just not promote him until he gets frustrated and takes a job elsewhere.}


1.) 23 Apr 2017 12:25:22
At the moment in coaching terms he's like an academy player.

In my opinion it's better that he's with us than with somebody else.

What a player and deserves his opportunity to learn.

Maybe he will progress with the youngsters that he will be coaching next season.

Ed do you think a move abroad would suit him better France or Spain.

{Ed001's Note - yes, but the clubs that have the money to afford him are not the ones likely to need or want him, sadly.}

As good as clem and brucie were it would be interesting to see if they could make our defence better now, especially set pieces. Also would mignolet look better behind their defence.

True ed and not just for football. What he done after Hillsborough went above and beyond.

{Ed001's Note - that is the most important thing of all. His actions then have been deserving of any honour, nothing we could do for him as a club or the city as a whole, could ever truly repay him.}

I'll now sit in the lower Kenny Dalglish stand.

{Ed001's Note - I can't believe anyone would want the stand named anything but the Kenny Dalglish Stand! He is the greatest legend of the club, which says a lot when we have had Shanks, Paisley and Fagan, amongst many others. If anyone deserves this honour, it is him.}

When lovren just defends like in the derby he can be ok it's when he starts thinking he's Beckenbauer that the problems start, then he tries to make up for a mistake by doing something mad.
