We have decided to change the Teams page to be the Liverpool Match Posts page, so look for posts talking about the latest Liverpool match there.

But most of the posts still go to the Liverpool Banter pages.

Brilliant round up mate I have siad time and time again to mates that Bottas lacks that agression to be a real top class f1 driver he is good don't get me wrong but Imagine Verstappen in a Mercedes car
you would see fireworks when he is behind back markers or there is a potential overtake possible.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate he is just too cautious.}

26 May 2019 19:56:42
Cheers Ed01.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

26 May 2019 20:15:07
Monaco has become a joke, well if it wasn’t already, the race is Saturday and the race itself is just a precession. Two years on the bounce a slow car has won because there is no way to overtake.

Rather then drs if your within a second you should be able to cut the chicane after the tunnel. Obviously a joke but it would make it more interesting. Not sure what else they could do on a circuit like that.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - make the cars smaller so that there is more space to overtake.}

26 May 2019 20:31:58
Ferrari need to start employing the best people not just the best Italians they are getting embarrassingly bad. They need Ross brawn back and Lewis Hamilton driving they really need drastic action. Anyway good review ed001 not sure where you get the time to do all these reports but glad you do.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I did most of it while watching it, not like I was going to miss any overtaking on that track!}

26 May 2019 17:21:52
Seen a few saying Memphis Depay not for me he's more interested in being a rapper (YouTube) for those who have not seen the embarrassing video another Ryan babbel he was another one who wanted to pursue a music career I knew him personally and a friend asked him once a question about football and his answer was he wants too pursue a career in music and does not like football just seen it as a job says it all and I like Ryan babbel but just think Memphis depay would be the same and wouldn't ever want him at Liverpool just my opinion.

I'd rather have him rapping than taking constant Instagram photos and referring to himself in the third person. He's a good footballer, I don't think what he does in his spare time should be a stick to beat him with.

Agree6 3Disagree

26 May 2019 18:17:03
Maybe you need too check out his insta aswell then before you make comments (just saying) an there is a difference between spare time and making full on rap videos smoking cigars.

Agree1 2Disagree

26 May 2019 18:34:27
I think he would improve our forward options, and be able to push the front 3 for a starting slot.

Agree2 1Disagree

26 May 2019 19:09:00
Rejected us too go too United last time we should never give him a chance again plus I can’t see klopp going for him he looks and acts like a diva turning up to training at United like P diddy leave it out.

Agree1 1Disagree

26 May 2019 19:38:48
Even though he is not coming I feel I must defend Depay the most superstar seeking footballer I have ever seen was Beckham and no one could question his commitment to football or man u
dont equate someone's personal life to their sporting career it means nothing if the person in question is performing on the field.

There was a debate on here yesterday about Firmino. The general consensus among those who want/ would replace him was that he didn't score enough goals. In their defence, he did only score 12 which looks fairly average on its own.

Well anyway I looked into it and Firmino may not score as many but he seems to have a penchant for influencing results with his goals/ assists.

Most points earned by goals/ assists; Salah (19), Firmino (14), Mane (13), Milner (8), Shaqiri (7), Robbo (6), Origi (4), Arnold (3), Keita (2), Virgil (2), Hendo (2), Wijnaldum (2), Sturridge (2).

Take it with a pinch of salt because goals/ assists are not the be all and end all. Alisson was probably worth as much points as Salah! Plus, this doesn't include things like opening goals or equalisers which can be game changing moments even if you go on to win by several goals. Still, I found it interesting!

Agree3 0Disagree

26 May 2019 13:03:54
Bobby firmino is a super star. No, he doesn't always score 25+ goals a season. But if you haven't worked out why he is klopps first choice then i can't really explain it to you. He is 3 players in 1.

Agree14 1Disagree

26 May 2019 13:32:48
With all due respect, Plain Bread, statistics are not necessary. Just watch Firmino play and his contributions speak for themselves. Whether he scores 5 goals or 25 goals a season is irrelevant. First name on the team sheet for me.

Agree14 0Disagree

26 May 2019 13:59:40
Agreed like a virgil. Along with big v he is the first name on the team sheet. The good news is we can still beat teams like Barcelona 4 0 without him. But he is such an asset. Strength, skill and vision. Not to mention work ethic. My favourite player. When he is playing between an in form mane and salah, some of the flicks and slide rule passes are incredible. Not many (if any) that i would swap him for.

Agree3 0Disagree

26 May 2019 14:07:26
And with his defensive work I reckon he’s worth 1 or 2 less goals conceded. I wouldn’t swap him for the world, tailor made for the way we play.

Agree5 0Disagree

26 May 2019 14:26:20
2 out of our 3 strikers score 20+ goals a season, don't think we need to worry if the other is contributing 10-15, regardless of everything else he brings to the team.

Agree9 0Disagree

26 May 2019 15:07:31
Are you lot seriously saying Firmino is more important than Salah, Mane or Allison? Do me a favour.

26 May 2019 15:42:39
I don't know how anyone can criticize Bobby.

Agree8 0Disagree

26 May 2019 16:37:15
Yes mark just as important or maybe even more as Firmino is the link man without him I don't think Salah or Mane would put up the numbers they do.

Agree3 0Disagree

26 May 2019 17:02:54
Spot on george. that's it in a nutshell. They score so many coz bobby is working his socks off to win the ball back, get physical with a big centre back, play cute passes that create goals. And the occasional bit of genius or the odd Brazilian wonder goal.

And we're not talking about a lemon, this guy still gets double figures every season, scores with his eyes closed and is generally brilliant in europe.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 May 2019 17:22:33
Glad to see more people recognising what Firmino brings to the TEAM! he's quality and by far imo the most important attacker we've got.

Agree5 1Disagree

26 May 2019 17:27:08
Firmino is just as important if not more important in my opinion to what Klopp wants the players to do in attack. Anyone who can't see what he brings to the team clearly does not understand the way we play. Firmino may not be getting 20+ goals every season but he has consistently gotten 10-15 goals, important goals at that, he also creates the space and gives the assists to others in the team. We scored 89 goals this season in the PL, 5 more than last season, we clearly are doing something right in attack. Trust in Firmino, trust in Klopp.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2019 17:29:34
no one is counting how many goals Henderson or Wijnaldum scored from midfield. Bobby gives us so much more than just goals. A true world class footballer anybody who does not appreciate how good he is does not understand football at all. Any off the big teams in world football would be Knocking paisley gates down if they could have him. And he could easily score 20+ goals a season if he was more selfish like Mo but he is not that sort of player. the grass is not all ways greener.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 May 2019 17:35:48
Look at Coutinho when he played alongside a selfless player in bobby compared to Coutinho now 👍.

Agree4 0Disagree

26 May 2019 17:52:14
Great to see so much support for Bobby. I completely agree with most replies. It says it all for me that Bobby's best assets aren't even related to his goalscoring, and yet he still scored so many crucial, point earning goals!

Agree2 0Disagree

26 May 2019 18:39:22
This is absolutely ott on Firmino.

Everyone on this thread is saying Firmino is more important that Salah or Mane.

If Firmino had started v Barcelona instead of Mane IMO we would not have qualified. Salah went off in the final look what happened. If Salah and Mane play they still score brilliant goals and win games when Firmino doesn't play. Firmino had a poor season but LFC had a very very good season.

The only thing I agree with is when Firmino plays well he makes the team better that is a fact. But he didn't play well very often this season and to claim he is more important than Salah or Mane is crazy.

In the final would you choose
Mane Salah of course 100%
Firmino and Mane as last year
or Salah Firmino.

Agree1 1Disagree

26 May 2019 19:26:27
Mark mate,
I think Bobby pulls the team together. more so when he plays well. he is the engine in this team.
Mo. And Mane have been great this year, and I agree Bobby hasn’t been at his best.
Imagine what they can do when they are all on fire?

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2019 19:51:07
Ask Klopp what he thinks about Bobby!

When Bobby is fit Bobby plays.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 May 2019 20:10:26
When I look back at the season, one game that stands out was the United draw at OT. After 20 mins I thought we were going to smash them. When Bobby went off, we lost our way. Most important attacker hands down for me.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 20:12:40
Mark, you make some good points. But I think hands down we play our best when Bobby is on it.

Hi Eds

Are we likely to get a CAM. Seeing as Ziyech and Fekir are both available now any chance we can hope one of them will be a target?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest from Liverpool in Ziyech and I have explained that Liverpool might look again to Fekir.}

26 May 2019 12:29:35
I wouldn’t mind Depay tbh who could play anyone of the front 3 or even at the tip ahead of 2 central kids. I no it’s not happening and no interest just my thoughts.

26 May 2019 13:40:17
Another team with city’s spending power? I would agree, can imagine Leeds fans will be ecstatic though as it will no doubt be a return to the premier league within a year or two if it happens.

I wonder how they (leeds) will fiddle ffp.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2019 17:04:42
Dodgy sponsorship or purchasing of their stadium by the owner a la Derby County. Maybe offsetting wages in other parts of parent companies etc. It is why FFP is a nonsense. People who have the resources to spend big also have the resources to hide it.

Glasgow rangers fan here guys. Just wanting the liverpool fans thoughts on ojo, your young winger that gerrard is keen to bring on loan to us. If he is anywhere near as successful as ryan kent was for us, then it will be a tremendous move. Just was wishing for us to get kent back preferably on a permanent deal, but if not on another year loan deal. You reds will know better than me if ojo is as good as kent. Look forward to hearing your take on this. Cheers guys and all the very best for your champions league final against spurs on saturday night. Hope you win it and think you'll win it. Good luck for next season in all competitions.

Agree6 0Disagree

26 May 2019 10:40:26
I reckon camacho will turn out to be better then both of them if im being honest but for me Ojo if he can stay fit has the potential to be the better player long term.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 11:00:25
Hey mate. I think Kent now is a better player, but if Ojo can get a full season under his belt, he'd be a beast in the SPL. Honestly, i don't think rangers could afford Kent on a permanent deal now. Ojo and Jones will be a formidable wing pair, and with Lennon getting the permanent deal, i reckon it could be rangers year next year, and that's from a Highland Killie fan!

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 13:07:59
Ojo has what it takes. I think hed be great signing for rangers. He needs games as i reckon he's a confidence player

And thanks to the OP.

26 May 2019 16:10:37
I originally wanted harry wilson on a season long loan deal at rangers last season. Obviously derby county got him and he's been superb for them. But once we got ryan kent on loan and watched him doing the business for us, i forgot i wanted wilson in the first place. Kent has been superb for us. Shows just how good the players you have at liverpool, when all 3 of your young,
very good wingers in ryan kent, harry wilson and ojo can't get near your first team guys. I'm gutted it looks like we won't now get kent back at rangers. He became a massive fans favourite at ibrox.
