Did you hear that from "monkey sponge" on Twitter by any chance?

2.) 15 Feb 2016 12:19:00
its in the Echo now too.

3.) 15 Feb 2016 12:25:34
Sakho he literally just said Sky Sports, not twitter. Sky Sports have just released this through there app and SSNHQ.

4.) 15 Feb 2016 12:43:33
Not surprised really because sahko is NOT boss.

5.) 15 Feb 2016 15:12:31
sorry mate I replied to somebody about liverpools interest in Leon Goretzka not about Matip joining Liverpool.

Apparently, after Chelsea losing tonight, we have guaranteed a champions league spot for next season. It’s the 17th of feb, that’s mad.

On a side note the officiating in that game, not to mention the complete failure of VAR, was a disgrace. Why have VAR if almost all of the games pivotal moments are officiated wrong (Maguire not seeing red, Zouma being denied a goal after a United player pushes Azpilicueta first)?

Anthony Taylor was born in Manchester - so why is he officiating United games? Official on the VAR also born in Manchester apparently (think it was Sturat Atwell? ) - just smacks of corruption. Chelsea weren't great, but they will feel justifiably outraged at the decisions that went against them and know, if VAR was working properly, they'd of likely won.

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty sure there was no corruption - mistakes clearly and Chelsea will be miffed and frustrated but in the end have to suck it up. Maybe a retrospective ban to draw attention away.}

2.) 18 Feb 2020 07:20:28
Not related just survived a second suicide and are struggling big time, this site makes a big difference in my day and thank you all.

{Ed047's Note - stay strong Red, talk to people, don’t be alone mate. There are plenty of support groups out there such as CALM.

Look them up give them a call 0800 58 58 58. They are on from 5pm to midnight.

It’s ok not to be ok mate and you’ve started by speaking now.

3.) 18 Feb 2020 07:39:06
I know how you feel Red. In 2016 my partner died, she was just 31. Left me with a little boy to bring up. I was in a very dark place and there was a time all I wanted to do was join her. But there is always a reason to carry on. Always hope and always light. Be as strong as you feel you can be, but like Ed047 said, it's ok not to feel ok. Talk to someone, start the journey back. We are all here for you my friend.

4.) 18 Feb 2020 08:51:16
Thank you mate it means a lot.

5.) 18 Feb 2020 08:52:49
Mistakes were made by human officials and the team which was the victim of these mistakes have to suck it up as it could happen to any side. It creates furious debate among supporters but the poor decisions should even themselves out over the course of the season.

Am I talking about officiating before VAR or since it has been introduced? Seems like exactly the same scenario to me except now we get to blame a team of incompetents rather than one guy on the field.

6.) 18 Feb 2020 09:09:21
Chelsea were robbed, how was Maguire not sent off for that? VAR isn't about getting decisions right, it's all about confirming the ref's decision no matter how wrong they may be. Absolutely embarrassing display from the officials.

7.) 18 Feb 2020 09:22:54
Redcol. I’ve seen a lot more focus on mental well-being the last few years. The best advice I read was that in addition that people should be kinder is that you should be kind to yourself. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Sites like these are wonderful for people who feel alone and need distraction from their worries. But genuinely. You’ll never walk alone with football fans. We have enough opinions (mostly full of crap) to last several millennia. Stay involved and keep taking one step at a time forward.

8.) 18 Feb 2020 11:34:51
Big up Redcol, I don't know what's affecting your life at the moment but keep going. Perhaps try something like boxing, it saved my life 👍.

9.) 18 Feb 2020 13:21:02
Stay strong Col. RTID is right, if you aren't participating in any exercise, or physical activity in general it can really help to put a positive spin in your mind mate and get you through the day. Small steps mate and in a few weeks or months time your world could be looking a whole lot different :)

10.) 18 Feb 2020 13:22:34
There's always a reason to live redcol. You never know what's around the corner mate. Be strong x.

11.) 18 Feb 2020 13:26:51
Red, there’s always people on here to reach out too. If nothing else a first, anonymous place to say hey guys, I’m not feeling too good. But as Ed says, there’s lots of help out there these days, there’s no shame in seeking it out. Stay strong and get yourself in a healthier place mate. All the very best to you.

12.) 18 Feb 2020 15:32:16
That's interesting Ed02. Can retrospective action still be taken if it contradicts a VAR decision?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, the FA's retrospective disciplinary process doesn't go away because of VAR.}

13.) 18 Feb 2020 18:16:12
Redcol if you don’t mind me asking mate where abouts you living. I have access to groups around the Hampshire area that would be more than happy to help you pal.

14.) 18 Feb 2020 18:45:32
My heart goes out to you redcol. I am suffering a lot myself at the moment and have now found myself living at least an hour away from anyone I know. Forums like this really do give you something else to focus on and it can make all of the difference. My advice. eat and take walks. They are the only thing keeping me going right now.

Ed2, what do you make of this Man City ban, do you think it’ll get reduced?

Lfc hopeful

{Ed002's Note - It has been coming as I explained previously. FIFA and to some extent UEFA want to hirt the English sides. The issue Manchester City has is questionable as it relates to third party sponsorship - For some years UEFA have been trying to deflect a legal challenge but want agreement with the the capping of television income and sponsorship. UEFA has spoken to a number of clubs but have generally not found them supportive – all three English sides in the "elite" group have been spoken to are against the plans to introduce the investment cap but others are of course fighting for it to lower the advantage that English sides have. UEFA turned to the association of European clubs and they are keen to have some input. They are traditionally ignored but they have been actively discussing this issue with UEFA. However, they are excluded from the discussions that UEFA and specific clubs have with each other – and it is that forum that will eventually settle on the more critical television revenue and commercial sponsorship caps. The charge relates to overstating sponsorship to even out FFP and have been expected for a long time - The FA have already made similar charges against other clubs and have more in their sights. It will eventually go to appeal - UEFA won't in all probability oppose the appeal process meaning it will likely not impact next season - this however could result in an issue with FIFA and another side. Manchester City have known about this for a number of years. There will be at least two more concerned English sides.}

1.) 14 Feb 2020 20:53:09
The two English sides are? 👀.

{Ed002's Note - Aston Villa and Everton.}

2.) 14 Feb 2020 21:08:34
Who are the two sides ed?

{Ed002's Note - See above or below.}

3.) 15 Feb 2020 04:03:40
Ed002, apologies if you have explained this previously, but where do you stand on FFP being brought in to impede smaller clubs from entering the upper echelons of the game?

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand the question, sorry.}



26 Dec 2019 18:16:45
There was a poster on here who works/ worked for opta. I was just wondering how this likely win percentage that amazon are using is calculated. Is it specific to the two teams, does it factor in certain stats from the specific game, or is it simply based on the score and the time of the match?
Hope you’re still around or perhaps one of the Ed’s would know.

Lfc hopeful

{Ed001's Note - that was Reid The Red I think. I have no idea how this AWS junk works, as it has been shown to be nonsense in F1 I would take little notice of it to be honest.}

1.) 26 Dec 2019 20:57:28
That is indeed me. It's calculated via a number of methods - form, head-to-head record, home/ away records etc, and it of course changes as the game goes on based on time remaining, the way the game is going (obviously a team's chance of winning increases after they score but also things like possession, shots etc do affect it), even a team's record late on in matches (do they score or concede a lot of late goals? ) .

I don't know exactly how this is all calculated but like Ed001 says, take it with a pinch of salt. It's just meant as a bit of fun to say, historically/ statistically speaking, the current likelihood of a team getting a result. You can't predict football or any sport for that matter, so it's just a rough guide.

{Ed0666's Note - the only thing I can confidently predict in a world full of nuances and anomalies is that Eds 001 will never be a 32 inch waist again.

2.) 26 Dec 2019 22:04:25
Appreciate the response Reed👍.



12 Nov 2019 19:18:34
Hypothetical question, what would happen if ref went over to the pitch side monitor to review a decision, off his own bat. Would he just get benched for future games, would the replay actually be shown to him?

Lfc hopeful



03 Sep 2019 09:45:35
It’s all irrelevant now, but I was curious what the plan for Bobby Duncan was, going into the transfer window? Was it Liverpool’s intention to keep him here and they never considered loaning him at all, they obviously turned down a loan and then sold him (presumably sold him after what went on) . I was just curious as to why they weren’t open to loaning him out if there had been some sort of rumblings about him wanting a loan, I mean there must have been civilised discussions at some point before his agent went full on nuclear in the press, no?

Lfc hopeful

1.) 03 Sep 2019 11:13:13
Liverpool sign young player to extended contracts before sending them on loan. The idea being to maintain their value and/ or provide them with a secure future at the club beyond the loan spell if they develop sufficiently. If Duncan wasn't going to sign a new contract then there was no point in sending him on loan for a year or wasting time and energy developing him.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the issue with Duncan.}

2.) 03 Sep 2019 11:16:44
I think it was a case of he thought he was better than he actually is. He thinks he is first team ready and should be in the squad ahead of our front 3. He did the same thing at City. Player greed I'm afraid is very much were we are at these days.

Gini has been outstanding this season, can’t believe Klopp would be happy for him to leave, for me he’s undoubtedly in our starting XI.

It’s the new structure that the shirt deal that people are referring to mate, probably far too complicated for the Ed’s to go into specific numbers for us, but roughly speaking we get a smaller upfront fee than we did from NB but hope to ultimately make more money by increasing shirt sales. I believe that the ‘Asia’ market was one of Liverpool’s important factors in wanting to go with Nike and so to us lay people it looks like a well thought out prospect, decent player, increased LFC awareness in Japan therefore more short sales and more revenue. God knows if any of that is actually what happens though 🤷‍♂️.

Cheers Ed, you’re not usually wrong about players so if your even half on board with it, it’s a good sign for me.

Lfc hopeful

{Ed001's Note - if those games are a good indicator, then he is probably the best option I have seen to slot into our team in recent months.}

Ed1, what do you make of this as a potential transfer? A good addition?

Lfc hopeful

{Ed001's Note - looks a very good player but I have only seen him against us and he only looked good when we sat back. Just look at the second half, he was anonymous. So difficult to judge him as they were not giving him the ball and he was not able to get it back on his own. I certainly would not be against signing him from what I saw, though his end product was very inconsistent, at best.}

I agree port red, he’d want astronomical wages and then that really does open Pandora’s box.

I think that’s the thing with Allison, I meant to ask Ed 1 a couple of months ago actually if there had been a change in the way our keepers are being coached. I felt when allison first came in he was pushing shots out, just like the previous 2 keepers had been, but the last few months has been a noticeable difference where by he’s holding on to most shots. It makes one hell of a difference to the way we defend and must be great for the defence not trying to scramble rebounds all the time. Previously it felt like fairly average shots were turned into dangerous situations from the way the sacs were being made.

Ed, do the Bosman rules apply outside of Europe? And if they don’t, do you see there being any chance that things could change here post Brexit?

Lfc hopeful

{Ed002's Note - it is related to European Union law and it could theoretically be impacted by Brexit but common sense will likely prevail with tweaks to UEFA rules. It is not finalised yet.}

If he stays at Barcelona they build a statue of him, if he moves to Liverpool he’ll just be another player.
