Ed002, is there any potential impact to the recent allegations against PSG and Man City. I know not Liverpool related, don't beat me up to much.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what allegations have been made but if it relates back to the 12/13 era it would be perhaps a case of UEFA finding their new turbo-charged feet in terms of handing out penalties. I have seen several posts about the general theme, if it is no more than bitching about it really being much worse than it was, that may well be truce. They got abrupt punishment that perhaps could have been more serious, but someone will need to give me a pointer to the specifics for me to rationally comment.}}

1.) 02 Nov 2018 23:27:17
I read Psg should sell mbappe and neymar because the money used for them wasn’t financially fair?

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid I am not sure what is meant by that.}

2.) 04 Nov 2018 11:19:13
I believe the allegations were that Infantino met with the Qatari’s and said if they buy PSG he will overlook FFP in their favour and ensure that they got to host the 2022 World Cup. There was something similar to do with Man City but I’m not sure of the full details of that.

{Ed002's Note - That sounds like nonsense from Twitter. Regardless, that is all totally untrue.}

3.) 04 Nov 2018 14:32:32
Yeah I assumed as much. Thanks Ed002. It was football leaks that broke the story and I have no idea how reliable they are.

{Ed002's Note - They have seemingly got some information that dates between 2014 and recently which is why it is muddled.



11 Jun 2018 23:26:31
Just read on the Echo that Liverpool are "set to step up the transfer chase for Xherdan Shaqiri". I'm still think there is a chance for Fekir or one of the others mentioned by the eds, my opinion is that Shaqiri is an addition to. But, what do I know.

1.) 12 Jun 2018 05:29:24
Yeah Shaqiri transfer not related to Fekir.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 06:32:19
But getting Shaqiri would mean we are not getting Malcom and the likes of.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 08:37:36
Malcom is pretty much set for Inter Milan. Contract was negotiated but Bordeaux doesn't like the proposed payment structure by Inter Milan (Inter wants a loan with a buy at the end of the season and bordeaux wants the money now) .

btt: I don't rate shaqiri at all. Saw him (the few times he played) at Bayern and wasnt impressed, saw him at Milan and wasnt impressed and he didn't impress me at stoke either. He was a very talented player back in the day but he thinks way to highly about his abilitys and has an attitude problem.

4.) 12 Jun 2018 09:51:40
He also looks a little chubby imo.

5.) 12 Jun 2018 12:21:56
Oh god the irony in the comment above :D.

6.) 12 Jun 2018 15:59:17
A lot of Liverpool fans seem to be in favor of this transfer. And if he joins, I hope it works out. But I do worry about his attitude. Some are justifying it as not wanting to play for a losing side like Stoke, but these same problems were there at Bayern - when he felt he was too good to be coming off the bench; as well as at Inter - when he felt he wasn’t getting enough playing time. He reminds me of Balotelli, where he’s had his chances at the big clubs and shouldn’t deserve another one, despite being blessed with natural talent. Just my two cents. and again, if we sign up, I’m backing him to the hilt.

7.) 12 Jun 2018 16:58:51
What’s a transfer chase?
How do you step one up?
How do you get set up to step one up?

{Ed002's Note - You can only do it when the club is on "red alert".}

8.) 12 Jun 2018 18:21:48
You need a war chest as well.

9.) 12 Jun 2018 18:38:32
Does a transfer chase have to take place in a Babelcopter?

10.) 12 Jun 2018 21:05:06
A transfer chase is something that happens after you've monitored aggressively.

11.) 12 Jun 2018 23:21:54
Is it not when you start warming up the fax machine and prepare a delegation for a long journey?

The irony of the chubby comment @ fat boy slim 😂😂😂😂.

12.) 12 Jun 2018 21:00:00
Ed002 I’m curious, how do clubs go about initiating “red alert? ” Sirens?

{Ed002's Note - Through Google.}

13.) 12 Jun 2018 23:53:46
I have few misgivings about signing Shaqiri. Anyone who scores worldies is welcome. I think it's a decent signing and he could be one that really surprises people.

14.) 13 Jun 2018 04:16:27
Not all transfer chases have Babelcopters, but all Babelcopters have transfer chases.

15.) 13 Jun 2018 07:35:31
This is anfield has an article on Shaqiri written by a Stoke fan who does a podcast. He says he was their best player last season, albeit not difficult and thinks some of the question marks pointed at him over his attitude are unfounded. He does question how he would fit in with genpress like has been said on here but in today’s market 12m isn’t bad for a player who could come on and produce magic from the bench.

{Ed001's Note - oh well if one fan says it then it must be true.}

16.) 13 Jun 2018 08:32:39
It’s an opinion on someone who watched him every week last season, more than anyone here who is giving an opinion.

{Ed001's Note - and the opinion of a biased fan who might know f all about the game as well. Still pointless isn't it no matter how you try and dress it up. I am sure if I was to look I could find plenty of fans who watched him every week who would disagree, but that would be just as pointless doing so. As for more than anyone else here, you are being a blert now as you have no idea what anyone else has done. Attitude like yours is why it is a waste of time anyone giving an opinion, I am certainly done speaking to you. Little point if you are just going to make up stuff you couldn't possibly know.}

17.) 13 Jun 2018 11:26:33
I’m passing on the opinion of a bloke who runs a fans podcast for stoke. He obviously watched him week in week out last season and has praise for him, if someone watched Stoke more than him on a Liverpool transfer rumour page I would be amazed and seriously question what they are doing with their spare time!
Would he be biased to a player leaving? I’m sure I wouldn’t be in the same position.

{Ed001's Note - no, you were denigrating everyone else's opinion to try and make some bloke who does a podcast's more valid. You have no idea if the guy even has a clue about footie or not. As for watching them week in and week out, if you live anywhere but the UK, every single Prem game is screened live and on repeat, so anyone can watch them all very easily. You go to any bar or café here and there is at least one game being shown, usually more. It is not difficult in reality to have seen every single Stoke game last season.

As for biased, you have no idea what his biases are. He might have a particular liking for fat lazy players who spend 85 minutes a game throwing their arms in the air complaining about the ball not being at his feet even though he was the one who actually gave it away.}

18.) 13 Jun 2018 11:56:11
I'm really ok with shaqiri. still young, yes he's had his issues but he is coming to an interesting that interesting mid-20s part of your life where you start to think a bit more clearly than you did at 20.

19.) 13 Jun 2018 11:53:13
I am in no way saying this guys view is correct, I’m just passing on an alternative view from someone who has watched him more than people on here last season.

20.) 13 Jun 2018 15:43:13
Ed was it his attitude problems and selfishness that seen other larger clubs pass on the chance to sign him?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

02 Feb 2019 00:44:05
I'm sure I'll be taken to task for this but my opinion is that in the summer we need to invest in another center half. I don't think we can rely on Gomez long term.

1.) 02 Feb 2019 04:23:25
You can't really say that on his current injury because its a bone fracture caused by another player.

2.) 02 Feb 2019 05:41:22
Abso-bloody-exactly! 👏

Matip needs to go. We need someone with experience who can regularly rotate with Joe and VVD backed up by Lovren.

3.) 02 Feb 2019 06:28:18
The best CB pairings are the ones who play together regularly. You don’t rotate CBs! Calling Joe out as ‘injury prone’ because someone kicked him until his leg bone snapped is a bit unfair.

4.) 02 Feb 2019 07:50:00
Matip frustrates me if am honest he can have a couple of good games and I think ohh here we go and then a couple of bad games were he has a total brain fart!
But saying that so can lovren. And when joe is fit again are we going to get players that are better than these that will be happy to be sat on the bench I really don’t know!
Joe was just unlucky to get a broken leg it could happen to any player!

5.) 02 Feb 2019 08:41:27
All those folks dreaming of world class centre backs happy to sit on our bench and wait for the odd game - dream on.

6.) 02 Feb 2019 09:03:07
People say “you don’t rotate centre backs” and in the past I’d agree. But this season we have been forced into rotsteimg centre backs and we have the best defensive record.

It’s all very well if you can find 2 bullet-proof centre backs who never get kicked and can play 50-60 games a year.
In practice that is not realistic these days.

I have never called Joe injury proof, I just think it’s too much to expect him and VVD to play every game and Lovren and Matip are just not good enough to cover.

7.) 02 Feb 2019 10:15:50
Flash why would a WORLD class CB sit on the bench?

8.) 02 Feb 2019 10:40:53
Maybe there was no one as crap as Caulker for us to sign as a short term fix.

9.) 02 Feb 2019 10:43:57
Ron how can you say ‘Lovren and Matip are just not good enough to cover’?
What are you expecting? Maldini and Cannavaro sitting on the bench? Lovren and Matip are perfect cover. Better than the cover any other top 6 team has by a mile!

10.) 02 Feb 2019 10:48:38
Calling Gomez "injury-prone" is just blatantly false. Why? He has not even played enough games in his pro career for that conclusion to be drawn. He is a 22 year old kid whose body is still maturing and developing hence, knocks and injuries will come while his body is still maturing. Also, to say he is injury prone cos a guy kicked him so hard he near broke his leg/ foot is laughable cos that is not a metric one can use to measure how injury prone a player is esp. one so young and inexperienced.

Now, I think we should move either Matip or Lovs on cos they are both injury-prone and can't be relied upon. Matip would be the one I would bin not just cos he is injury prone BUT cos he is haplessly poor, lazy, lacks aggressiveness in the tackle and challenge and is lackadaisical. Lovs is good enough when fully fit, concentrated and on his game. It is his penchant for getting injured rolling out of bed that worries me more.

11.) 02 Feb 2019 11:58:00
I like Gomez and I want him to succeed, but just look at his injury record since he's been with the club. is that someone you want to rely on for the future? I'm not trying to put him down or anything, just pointing out that I don't think he can be relied upon. I remember how everyone was saying the same about Agger.

12.) 02 Feb 2019 12:32:45
Bobby - I’m content with Lovren being 4th choice but not 3rd. Matip needs to go as he’s a waste of a wage.

13.) 02 Feb 2019 13:41:02
Absolutely Ron.

14.) 02 Feb 2019 21:31:00
Lovs won't be here to be 4th choice, Ron. That much is clear so you might as well get rid of both Matip and Lovs, something that will not happen, IMO.

15.) 03 Feb 2019 15:17:06
I'm a big believer in having a consistent pairing at the back. If VVD and Gomez can continue their brilliant form together, then we're in safe hands. Injuries happen of course, as do suspensions, so back up is important. We've seen the difference Virgil has made and he's as important as a top striker imo. A reliable deputy is great, but so is leaving opportunities for young talent. Hoever, or whatever his name is, is a blinding prospect. Buying a CB to back up the back up to the mainstay back 2 can only frustrate the growth of young players.

16.) 03 Feb 2019 15:21:02
Gomez is brilliant, and Matip and Lovren as back ups are more than good enough. and I except that Gomez's current injury is a bone one from a strong tackle that can happen to anyone but I have to admit that each injury to any of these three (of which there just too many) gradually makes me want Klopp to sacrifice one of them and get a top partner with a good record of staying fit in to partner VVD. I know people will say a new signing would play 2nd fiddle or block Gomez but look at Gomez's career so far, any new signing would AT LEAST get his fair share of games.



26 Jan 2019 22:38:32
So, Lingard has guaranteed a victory against us. Thank you for that Mr. Lingard, challenge accepted.

{Ed0333's Note - as if we needed an incentive lol. I hope we hand them a monumental schooling.

1.) 26 Jan 2019 22:56:09
Stone and Ed0333, That's a guy who is in over his own head and believes in his and his team's own hype. Nice bulletin board material, Jesse. Klopp will paste that right at the entrance of the players' dressing room. Thanks a lot, genius.

{Ed0333's Note - oh that printer at Anfield will be working overtime lol

2.) 26 Jan 2019 23:51:51
When did he say that guys?

The thing is they are flying right now, and look a completely different proposition since we last played them. I am worried about that game to be honest.

I guess it's because we are so close to what we have been wanting for for so long.

3.) 27 Jan 2019 00:23:52
I hope we both reach the final 8 of the champions league and then knock them out.

4.) 27 Jan 2019 00:44:52
KBL I was a little concerned as well but after Jesse’s comments I’m no longer concerned.

5.) 27 Jan 2019 03:09:48
He told they will win when they face us next time.

6.) 27 Jan 2019 05:09:28
Looking forward to seeing them at their best. Honestly can't recall when we last beat them when they were having stronger seasons. maybe that we did them 4-0 at OT? Anyways others may not agree, but I like to see our biggest rivals on top of their game so we can test ourselves. Looking forward to this game!

7.) 27 Jan 2019 06:41:36
They beat a poor Arsenal side deprived of all their first choice defenders (2 which got injured during the game itself and deflated Arsenal) and they think they are back!
Time to give the mancs a good walloping and make that p*** Lingard shut his mouth for good.

8.) 27 Jan 2019 07:15:33
We’ve got Bayern Munich few days before and they have got PSG so a big week of games and no excuses! Bring them on I say.

9.) 27 Jan 2019 09:28:56
I’d happily lose hat game if we go on to win the league. It was a regular occurrence in the 80’s. ManU would win our league games but we’d win the trophies.

You’re only 16 points behind Jessie with 15 games left 😂

Having said that, it would be nice to do the double over them 🤝.

10.) 27 Jan 2019 12:11:36
I hope the Kop come up with a corker of a song for Lingaard and sing it every time Mo makes their net ripple.

11.) 27 Jan 2019 12:30:59
I hope we beat them, but I reckon they will beat us at OT unfortunately.

12.) 27 Jan 2019 16:04:22
Why do people think they will beat us at OT, exactly? Is it cos they have hit some form? They had some kind fixtures to start OLS's reign which got them some confidence and form and that much is clear. that's about it. Then they played Spurs who should have put 3 past them for fun had DDG not stood on his head. They played an Arsenal team without 75% of it's back line. Again, that's about it. We are a diff. beast to all these teams they have played and frankly, if we both play at our best, we beat them hands down. Why?

They used to one-up us under Mou by parking the bus and counter attacking. Now, they play a more open, high energy style. We are the WRONG team to play that style against cos we will dismantle you if we take our chances. Can they beat us? Of course. Will they beat us as some people say with an air of certainty and fatality? Not so sure.



16 Jan 2019 12:48:33
So, it looks like that rag that shall remain nameless is at it again.

1.) 16 Jan 2019 18:26:36
They are really reaching now, to the point of complete ridiculousness.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 18:56:11
Don’t give them the oxygen of publicity 👍.



03 Nov 2018 18:41:11
I really like our team but I'm wondering if we need a true #10. I'm not sure just wondering what others think.

1.) 03 Nov 2018 18:46:18
I really don't think that's the problem today.

2.) 03 Nov 2018 18:54:32
Sorry, I didn’t necessarily mean today. I still think we have the team to win the league.

3.) 03 Nov 2018 19:27:25
It was a fair result. Not too pleased with our performance though. I understand what Ed01 means by Wijnaldum hiding now. Don't think I saw him all game. Bobby also was disappointing. Alisson was betrayed by his defence for the goal.
Still unbeaten though and plenty more games to come.

{Ed025's Note - it was a fair result mate..

4.) 03 Nov 2018 19:57:08
I’ll disagree with Ed025. On the performance, maybe. On the chances we created, should have won by a margin. Mane’s wrongly ruled offside, VVD’s 3 big chances, and that’s not including Salah’s nearly playing someone in on 2 counts. Still a point gained, but should have won.

{Ed0333's Note - I am absolutely numb with that result. We should have won

5.) 03 Nov 2018 20:24:23
I agree ed0333. I don’t necessarily think it was a fair result. That goal from mane should have counted. Having said that we are still unbeaten in the league and I truly believe that we can win the league.

{Ed025's Note - i think for all us neutrals it was a fair result stone..

6.) 03 Nov 2018 20:25:44
As good as our front 3 can be sadly sometimes they are isolated with a lack of attacking support. We can’t always just attack in a 3. City attack in fives and sixes. Our midfield are good at nice little passes to each other and the defence but they need to start chipping in with goals and assists. Coutinho used to offer us double figures there.

7.) 03 Nov 2018 20:26:10
I think arsenal just slightly edged that game tonight on overall play. Getting 3 points would have been robbery even if we did have the better of the chances.

Van dijk had a stormer. So did mustafi though.

Disapointing to lose a lead but i feel it would have papered over a few cracks in the midfield department were we were very poor tonight. don't think those 3 work well together at all. Needed a runner and ball carrier in there to create space in other areas. Was all a bit too predictable.

Bobby is having to drop way too deep this season. Hopefully keita can get up and going again soon.

Shiqiri should have been brought on around the 60 imo. I think it would have made the arsenal defence a bit less organised.

Still undefeated though. Keeps the momentum going.

Onwards and upwards.

8.) 03 Nov 2018 20:30:01
Fully agree. We snatched a draw from the jaws of victory. Nobody should be happy with 2 points dropped. If ManC win tomorrow, the pressure on us will notch up one step.

{Ed025's Note - i would say a point at the emirates is a point gained aray..

9.) 03 Nov 2018 20:38:59
You are about as far from neutral as it gets Ed25! 😂.

{Ed025's Note - thats not fair bobby, you may not agree with all i say but im afraid thats you being a red more than me being a blue mate..

10.) 03 Nov 2018 21:11:16
Come on Salah, I need a little support against Ed025, where are you!

{Ed025's Note - i am not the enemy stone, the weight of expectation is mate..

11.) 03 Nov 2018 21:23:06
Ed 0025 you aww awesome. I love reading your posts and confront a good win today.

{Ed025's Note - i was a good win stone, but that was not the only good performance by a merseyside team...tranmere won as well.. :)

12.) 03 Nov 2018 21:50:54
Undefeated for merseyside is a good day ed 025.

13.) 03 Nov 2018 20:57:30
Unpopular opinion, maybe. But if we'd Henderson on the bench, this is one of those games he would've come in, with us being 1-0 up and just killed the opposition's flow.
We'd more chances to win it, Arsenal just had possession. A point apiece isn't exactly fair. But it's something to build on.

14.) 03 Nov 2018 20:59:54
For me personally im not going to sit here and say we dropped two points we never ever looked in control and a point for me is a fair result
didnt think trent or bobby had their best games but when you don't play well and can't win then at least draw that is the sign of a team progressing along nicely
Bring on fulham and Naby to grab his first goal for us alongside Fabinho.

15.) 03 Nov 2018 22:29:17
Ed I know you aren’t the enemy and I know that you support the merseyside as do I. I truly respect you and your posts.

{Ed025's Note - cheers stone, i like the liverpool guys and its all a bit of fun and a lot of banter mate which its all about, i can go back to the days when derby,s were like that and we walked and drank together before and after the games, ahh halcyon days indeed, alas its not like that anymore its been replaced by twisted knob heads of both teams who would rather fight than have a good time, their loss in my view but on this site it seems to be fine, lets hope we can be the example for future generations who care about this city its great history and its great teams...i will get of my soap box now mate before i start crying..

16.) 03 Nov 2018 19:46:32
Probably right Ed but do feel a tad agreaved by the disallowed goal, I saw that it was OK on the TV and quite clearly at that, linesman should not have got that one wrong. Don't get me wrong may have had the same result in the end, but that really did erk me. Thought the ref in particular was very poor tonight actually, not sour grapes either, had we won 10 nil I'd have said the same about the ref.

{Ed025's Note - hopefully these things even themselves out during the season istanbul, but in the end its a very good point against a good arsenal side even though you were not at your best remain undefeated and at the top of the tree mate...for a good few hours at least..

17.) 03 Nov 2018 23:51:14
Fair result but I think they will be more disappointed with the result.
Salah is just not at the races. He’s lost pace, he’s lost confidence and he’s lost the ability to play a simple pass. Beyond that he’s not attacking the ball, he’s waiting for it.
Trent was bloomin awful today. Gave the ball away, stood with his arm in the air whilst Lacazette practised his dribbling before scoring, constantly leaving space behind him.

That lad needs some time on the bench.
Firmino is struggling too, I forgot he was playing today.

Positives today - Robbo (outstanding), Van Dijk (colossal), Milner (consistent and reliable)

18.) 04 Nov 2018 08:02:18
A guy who has scored 4 goals in the last 4 games has lost confidence, pace and ability to play a simple pass. Knee jerk reaction, much?

19.) 04 Nov 2018 14:35:05
When we are 1-0 up we should see it through. Draw is a disappointment.

20.) 04 Nov 2018 14:37:27
Would be nice to go back to them days shame these persons ruin it for the genuine fans they would go the opening of a letter if they could have a kick off after.



27 Oct 2018 21:47:01
Ed's I know this isn't Liverpool related but do any of you have info on the helicopter crash involving the leicester owner? I pray everyone is okay.

{Ed025's Note - only what we are reading on the net and watching on the news stone, early days yet but lets hope and pray for everyone involved mate..

1.) 27 Oct 2018 21:54:36
Oh bloody hell I hadn't seen this, horrific news.

All of that sounds reasonable. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part, but I really hope the Brandt rumour is true, I'd love to see him at Liverpool. I'd be delighted with De Ligt. If we just ended up with those two, I'd be thrilled, well those two and a replacement for Mignolet who is sure to leave in the summer.

way to go out on a limb there redrebel. everyone thought city would win the league at the start of the season. there's a lot of football left to be played and we still have only lost once this season. we have a lot of injuries right now, we will be okay. and if we don't win the league, the sun will still come up in the morning. chill.

There have been reports that Liverpool are looking for a record deal with NB. To be honest I really like the kits we’ve had with NB. I think the Nike kits are hideous.

I'm a HUGE Red Sox fan and can't stand the Yankees, so for me to say this is very painful, but the '27 Yankess are generally considered the greatest of all time. I'd say that this past season for the red sox was the greatest of this century so far though.

{Ed001's Note - not really Gomez is the only youngster ready really.}

One of your best Ed. Thank you for what you do.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, glad you enjoyed it. Was very interesting researching it. I never knew anything about his autobiography causing issues in Germany before now.}
