Everyone has been rightly raving about the new stand but have to say - how good does the new grass look. Miles better than the old stuff which was more threadbare than my bank account.

That's like going to see the pyramids and saying how nice the sand was. Haha.

Not really LFC related but I notice Jon Smith (self proclaimed super agent) is bringing out a book. "The Deal: Inside the World of a Super-Agent"

Anyone know if its worth a read? Particularly in terms of exposing what goes on behind the scenes during transfer season?


1.) 12 Sep 2016 07:49:49
Dunno. Will let you know when it's out .

We have taken 7 out of 9 points from teams that finished in the top4 last year. Yes we dropped points against Burnley but this year is certainly shaping up to be exhilarating.


1.) 12 Sep 2016 10:18:50
Correction; 7 out of 9 against the top 3 teams with two of the games away from home. Not trying to be pedantic but I just shows how extra impressive our start has been.

2.) 12 Sep 2016 14:04:40
That is quite impressive indeed. however where we really need to push on will be against the "lesser" teams, which has been our archilles heel for years. This is what we need to put right. if we can, top four (or better? ) for sure, awaits us.

Hers an interesting stat which might go someway to explaining why England fail to achieve results at an international level.

According to Uefa, Germany has 28,400 (England 1,759) coaches with the B licence, 5,500 (895) with the A licence and 1,070 (115) with the Pro licence, the highest qualification. They also have a talent identification programme which covers most of Germany aimed at 8-14yo who are trained by qualified coaches (who are also expected to do scouting) . The kids attend weekly training sessions with the programme but play for their local clubs on the weekend. In other words Germany have set out to try and make sure they capture every player in Germany and make sure they get as good a coaching as possible.
Whereas I understand in England this is the responsibility of each individual club.


1.) 28 Jun 2016 07:22:32
What about Iceland? How many coaches have they got 😄.

2.) 28 Jun 2016 07:34:00
France in the past, Spain and now Belgium and Germany have figured out the way forward is to revamp their whole youth systm from the grassroots up. EWe have seen the results. England is still there groping in the dark and still think the PL is the best thing since sliced bread while they are being left in the dust by these other countries and well, even Iceland. No oe should be surprised with with how pathetic England as a fot ball nation, not power, has become.

{Ed001's Note - it is up to the English FA to work in partnership with the clubs, instead of constantly battling against them, to create the best youth system possible to give the country hope of success.}

3.) 28 Jun 2016 09:02:36
Ed001 I agree. In Germany, the clubs and the League are on the whole primarily fixed on producing the best homegrown players they can for the good of the national team. The League's attitude is that if they can find and produce good players for the clubs, the clubs will in turn mould them into players good enough to play for Germany. can't say that England have that sort of long term focus.



23 Jun 2016 04:53:08
Burnley have agreed to swap their home match with us so that we have more time to get the stadium ready. Means they are without a home match for almost 2 months in the middle of the season. Class act by them.


1.) 23 Jun 2016 05:17:03
That is brilliant of them to be so accommodating.

2.) 23 Jun 2016 07:35:08
Especially after the ings situation.

{Ed001's Note - good point.}

3.) 23 Jun 2016 08:21:36
It is nice to think it was a gesture, but I suspect a favour or a few pounds will be returned.
Hey, they can have Balotelli for free.

{Ed001's Note - I very much doubt there will be any money exchanged, they are just not run as badly as us and are willing to work with the other teams in the league.}

4.) 23 Jun 2016 08:32:53
I'm sure the club will find a way to stuff this up somehow.

5.) 23 Jun 2016 08:47:14
Yeah well done Burnley 👌

Feels like 1987/ 88 all over again 😃.

6.) 23 Jun 2016 09:10:52
Scousekev, why punish them when they are helping us out?

Lallana average! I could say that the awards he has won this season would suggest not unless you are saying every other player in England is rubbish. But more importantly you only have to watch him to know that he is good. Frustrating at times yes because I could wish he was more consistent but he has really stepped up this season. I don't watch the Bundesliga so can't comment on Brandt (other than to say he looks good on youtube but so does Lallana) . But really how can you compare 2 players who play in completely different positions with what appears to be completely different styles?

I not suggesting we big him up. I come from Oz where we make a habit of bagging people out so that they don't get up themselves but there should be happy medium where we aren't slagging them off either.

Like all players Clyne has his weaknesses but he also has quite a few strengths. He rarely gets injured, has a good work rate and is quite quick. Also I don't agree that he constantly blocks space. His most likely run is to start from deep (ie behind the player with the ball) overlap and drag defenders out wide - which is what most RBs are asked to do nowadays. Yes once he has done this he appears to be unsure as to what he should do next and so hangs out wide but that isn't a massive issue (and he does tend to drop deep again if someone runs into that space) . Yes TAA looks like he will be our long term future at RB but I can't see the point in bagging Clyne whilst he is our regular RB. Is he going to come on this site, see the comments here and go "wow I never knew I never use my left foot - I must work on that". Im not saying the ones in this thread are that bad but some of the comments on this site are pretty ordinary - more likely to put him off than anything else. Sorry like I said this thread isn't so bad but there has been so much abuse directed at him lately that i've had enough. Sure let's discuss the team and players but likewise let's show other fans that we can do it in a way that builds up the team rather than tearing players to shreds.


{Ed001's Note - I can't see the point in bigging up players that are not good enough and haven't bothered to improve themselves. That is just arse kissing.}

I really like Flanno but it does raise some questions for me as to why he can't get a go at Burnley. Did his injury cause long term issues or is it just that Burnley's coach doesn't like him?


{Ed025's Note - just not good enough to hold down a regular place phil..

Considering their limited pool, they do an excellent job of developing talent.


{Ed001's Note - I think they might well have good cause to claim they have the best youth development system in world football.}

Keep an eye on Rhian Brewster. He has been brilliant this year - I wouldn't be surprised if he makes an appearance on the bench next year.

For me, I reckon Wilson needs to be a bit less predicable- it would help if he realised his right foot is good for something other than standing on. However he has been very good since coming back from injury and hopefully will kick on.

Real Madrid?


{Ed001's Note - that is nothing to do with social media popularity. They did buy James for his marketability, but that was because he was the face of a number of campaigns, rather than anything to do with social media. It meant the club could then hook up with Pepsi and a couple of other big companies for sponsorship. It is more similar to the way motor racing teams will often sign drivers because they bring sponsors with them, rather than a social media thing.}

There are loads of shotstoppers but very few who are good at organising the defence and at defending crosses.

Our ban will stop us from signing sessegnon.
