Mane out for six weeks.


1.) 03 Apr 2017 22:48:22
Results aren't expected until tomorrow. Nice try though.

2.) 03 Apr 2017 23:06:38
Take it you're on the medical team seeing as he's not had his scan yet. anyway maybe put TAA in his position as he's pretty pacey wouldn't upset the team dynamic too much. Hopefully Manè is back sooner.

3.) 03 Apr 2017 23:22:08
Not good news. Luckily Coutinho seems to be getting back to his best and LFC have hit some form too. We need to get on with it.

4.) 03 Apr 2017 23:29:39
Mane had a scan yesterday. Swelling could not provide definite answer as such fears are that he will be out of commission for >6 weeks; devastating for our top 4 ambitions.

5.) 04 Apr 2017 00:06:54
Praying for a speedy recovery. He was massively missed during the AFCON.

6.) 04 Apr 2017 01:53:34
lol just insert some dude who is pacey and the team dynamic won't be upset too much. #fifalogic.

7.) 04 Apr 2017 14:05:51
We haven't won a game when he hasn't started so this could be a tricky time. I don't see anyone else in the squad who can step up and give us what he brings.

8.) 04 Apr 2017 23:05:48
We're going through some staffing change and the most common thing people say is "oh they'll be big shoes to fill". I'm like maaaan c'mon, we got to bring in someone new to do their best at what they are good at and my job is to set the conditions so they can be successful. If we just want to bring someone in to try and be Mane then its no wonder we have suffered without him. Klopp will have to tinker and adjust the tactics and the established players will have to adjust on the pitch accordingly. If they constantly look up field hoping for a flying senegalese bullet in disguise as origi or TAA or woodburn, then we can expect a hard time. Play to people's strengths man!

Re Coutinho: in my opinion the best outcome for both sides would be he signs for Barcelona but leaves at the end of the season just like we done with Keita. Is there any chance this might happen?


{Ed002's Note - Of course.}

1.) 02 Jan 2018 11:31:23
Yeah I agree flidby. Would be happy if we could secure someone like lemar now for him to move to us in summer also. Try and stop others coming in the summer.

2.) 02 Jan 2018 12:07:34
Would make sense if we don’t have a replacement already lined up and ready to move. Would also help in CL to have Phil available.

3.) 02 Jan 2018 12:10:52
That would be the best outcome for us if Coutinho plays ball and continues this form. However it's being reported that he is willing to sacrifice this years CL and wants out this window so if that is the case and we keep him then it's a risk. I'm sure Klopp will weigh up all his options before a decision is made.

4.) 02 Jan 2018 16:16:05
Spot on, Jay. That would be the best scenario for LFC and this is what we should negotiate over as a sticking point. Barcelona can only have him in the summer and NOT before.

5.) 02 Jan 2018 23:31:46
And what if we face Barcelona in UCL? Can he play? Will there be conflict of interest?



27 Dec 2017 18:07:26
Absolutely made up.
Yes we haven't behaved in the best way but he is a massive upgrade on what we've got.
Welcome to LFC!


1.) 27 Dec 2017 18:24:57
fingers crossed.

2.) 27 Dec 2017 18:17:45
If Klopp wanted him that bad, the well done to FSG for backing their manager.
But 75 million pounds? That's ridiculous imo.
Thoughts Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - stupid move, the lad was desperate to join us but he is not the player we need. Still it will at least hopefully put a sock in the idiotic comments about Klopp not trying to buy a defender that we have to read repeatedly over and over since the summer.}



07 Dec 2017 00:36:12
I was supposed to be there but had to cancel because my wife is ill.
What a performance.
Yes Spartak we're awful but every time this season we've trounced a team I've thought "we won won but they were awful". It can't be a coincidence. We destroy Southampton, then they destroy Everton next game. We are making teams look awful.
Who knows where we'd be in the league if Mane hadn't been sent off against City.
Imagine if we had Hyppia! We'd be walking everything.
Great performance and roll on Sunday!


{Ed0333's Note - Hope your wife feels better mate

1.) 07 Dec 2017 01:17:26
Liverpool made them look awful. We don't just pounce on mistakes, we force them from our opposition. Spartak are not a poor team, they have some real talent there but our fab four are too good, better to watch than city a lot of the time. I was impressed with klavan again and really impressed with alberto. He cried at being substituted and that has endeared him to myself, good lad, love his desire and commitment. I swear I thought I saw Emre Can thinking, after the 7th, I could be making a huge mistake walking away from this group.

I thought Gini was fantastic, without Hendo, he stitched the play up nicely with Emre but he has that ability to keep the ball under pressure and find the right pass too. Great player. I'd like to see gomes in that cb role more often, why not? .

People can't keep saying that we only won 7 0 because the opposition were kak, it's the second team we have done it to in the UCL, the elite tournament in the world really. We are doing everyone with big scores, we have to because these days at 3 0 it feels like 1 0 and we could cave at any moment. Defence were class tonight though, Klavan does seem to be growing as a player, finding a bit of confidence and form at the right time, well played.

one very happy red.

2.) 07 Dec 2017 08:31:39
Superred, I like your assessment esp. of the defence cos Klavan like it or not, is getting it done at CB. He is not a world beater and none asks him to be. He is physical, committed and strong in the challenge. The whole back 5 were solid last night and that can only bode well for their confidence.

Also, we simply can't win with some people. We tonk a team in a high pressure game 7-0, they say we only beat them cos they are poor which is patently false cos Spartak are Russian champs. and stomped on Sevilla 5-1. We don't beat them and they say we are crap. Can't lie with 'em, can't live w/ o 'em. On to Everton.



29 Aug 2017 14:01:03
Hi Eds, sorry to ask another question about Van Dijk but considering the business we've done with Southampton in the past couple of years why did it turn into such a mess?
We've signed Clyne, Lovren, Lallana etc. Surely we had a good relationship with them?
Apologies if you've already answered this and double apologies if you decide not to answer.
Love your work.


{Ed001's Note - because we have not built up a good relationship with them, quite the opposite as we have been heavyhanded and forceful. VVD isn't the first player to cause friction between the two, in fact the only amicable deal was the Ricky Lambert one.}

1.) 29 Aug 2017 14:12:47
Wow! Did not know that.
So if it was already bad then Klopp has made it much worse.
Thanks for the reply.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 14:14:16
So the club thinks just because we have bullied them in the past and it didn't matter then we can continue to bully them.
I hope that some real lessons have been learned this year regarding transfers, although as it still seems likely we will still buy VVD and Keita is signing The club might just think "oh well, we got what we wanted, business as usual"



23 Apr 2017 19:34:37
How we lost that game i don't know.
Under no pressure at all from Palace.
It just beggars belief.
Two Lovren mistakes (doing his best impression of Klavan) and we get punished for both mistakes.
Just imagine if we had a half decent defence!
We'd have walked the Premier League this season!


1.) 23 Apr 2017 19:46:09
Not just defence though. The attack was pretty toothless when it came to final ball and getting into positions to exploit and midfield gave the ball away a lot. Overall it was a poor performance. That could and should have been 2-2 at worst and really 3-2 or 4-2 was viable. Plenty if possession just inability to get the final ball in when Palace were playing more openly and inability to break them down when they were more defensive. Even with 7 mins extra it never seemed like a shot on target was coming never mind a goal.

2.) 23 Apr 2017 21:35:30
Erm can was at fault on one of them.

Shouls of stayed with benteke on corner.

3.) 23 Apr 2017 21:52:31
That was my BIGGEST frustration. CP were of NO danger to us BUT yet aging, no desire, guile and poor-decision making in the final third, killed us again. One shot on target in a must win game at home, is pathetic and a joke. We just screwed ourselves out of 3 points today and we have no one else to blame but ourselves. However, NOTHING will be decided until the end of the season and top 4 is going to go down to the last game. What I hope for is that we are in control of our own destiny by the time that day comes.

4.) 24 Apr 2017 01:14:31
Zonal marking if your nannmoves to another players zone he takes him so lovren was at fault. True can shouldve done more but once benteke moved lovren should take benteke lovren looked at him then ball watched under 12s mistakes!

5.) 24 Apr 2017 06:53:59
It seemed to be more than just a zonal marking problem. No common sense and no communication. The first line which would have had the 6 yard bix all dropped deep when their widest man dropped deep. That may be the idea to keep a line, if so it isn't a great one. As soon as that happened that goal became possible. Can saw Bentwke's run and clearly thought about acting then stopped. The problem is clearly Lovren didn't realise the run hapoened so he didn't adjust and Can didn't see that just staying in his zone was wrong so he didn't adjust. Zonal marking isn't about just stand in the same place and thinking players, the type the team doesn't have, wouldn't have all dropped deeper like sheep and wouldn't have decided that's not my zone so not my job. That emphasised all the problems in one move, lack of thought and lack of leadership and strength to step out of line and say I need to do something different here.

I do think we need to change the goalkeeping coach.
Every time he takes them for warm pre match he looks like he's about to keel over!

Shame. Every time I've seen him play he's impressed me. Really hope he gets back on track with this loan. With Coutinho leaving, Henderson injure and Can on his way out, now would be a great time for him to break his way into the team.

If Walcott's not available then why don't we go for Shane Long?
He scored last night.

I doubt anyone else is going to offer more for a player they know wants to join Liverpool. Yes the fee is high but 15million of that at least is an apology.

And please can we add Mane to this.
He's had (in my opinion) unfair criticism hurled at him this season.
He has totally been targeted this season which is why he hasn't hit the heights of last but he has still been great.
The three of them together are pretty much unstoppable.
Love being a Liverpool at the moment.
If we beat Porto 5-0 at home then we will have scored more goals in the Champions League than Everton have in the Premiership :)


{Ed025's Note - if everton played porto i would be gutted if we did,nt thrash them flidby...they are an absolute joke mate..

Even though I think both pens were dives Souness and Carragher thought they were both fouls.
There's no conspiracy against Liverpool.

Rafa was as much to blame. Look at how many people got fired when he left the club.
He's not as clean as he makes out to be.

How many times do the Eds need to say that Aubemayang has a terrible attitude and that Klopp does not like him?
He won't be coming to our club thank God and if Arsenal sign him then they are only going to fall further. The last person they need is someone who doesn't take his job seriously.
