I can definitely see where ed001 is coming from regarding Pep. If he acts that way during matches he's probably worse in training. That would wear thin I'd imagine.

{Ed025's Note - theres nothing like a bit of jealousy to get the juices flowing stone..

Agree6 Disagree0

04 Aug 2019 17:09:03
Jeolousy? For what? He will be leaving them in a year or two anyways 😂😂😂.

04 Aug 2019 17:10:57
Why does anyone care what Pep does?

04 Aug 2019 17:13:38
We are the better team. I didn't think so in the first half but they couldn't keep up with our intensity. I think city are the faves to won a pen shootout. I knew gini would miss, bless him he had a decent game.

The big difference between the teams is the fans. Ours p##s on city's tbf. Well proud of the team. Last season was no fluke. We ARE the better team.

And am i jealous of pep? Why would i be when we have klopp? I think we will win the league this season. If we play like we did in the 2nd half we are the best team in the world.

04 Aug 2019 17:16:41
Champions of Europe ain't jealous of these lot haha.

04 Aug 2019 17:19:31
It really wound me up when Glenn Hoddle says "that was a awful penalty" about Gini's penalty, but then Phil Foden takes pretty much the exact same penalty but to the other side and Alisson guessed the wrong way, "that was a fantastic penalty".

Sorry, just had to get it out of my chest.

04 Aug 2019 17:20:30
We played ok but not sure best team in world based on the second half
. unlucky not to win though.

04 Aug 2019 17:26:19
Ok? Good god what game were you watching? That was man city we made look like wolves in the 2nd half. If liverpool aren't the best team on the planet there is only city, madrid and Barcelona who can come close. Maybe madrid are the best but we are excellent. Proud.

04 Aug 2019 17:34:05
Very bitter indeed. was really . just appreciate our second half performance and keep it at that .

04 Aug 2019 17:34:25
An important point epic, and it needed to be said mate.

04 Aug 2019 17:34:33
Made them look like Wolves, is that supposed to be an insult?!

04 Aug 2019 17:35:11
Madrid are the best? What you smoking Robbiesline? Awful team and manager.

04 Aug 2019 17:30:17
We are Champions of Europe. Europe is a continent. Not a country. Many words come to mind. Jealousy is certainly not one of them. Overall, we were the better team, even though it was a game of two halves. Penalties always have been and always will be a throw of the dice.

04 Aug 2019 17:40:40
City still won though, I think City are the best team in the world at the moment arguably.

Its just pre season, no need to go all crazy!

04 Aug 2019 18:06:04
Neither team played like a pre season game. Both at 100% imo. Not a lot in it. May have been different outcome if bobby, mane and origi had taken pens. No, it was no pre season game. Really good game of the highest quality.

No, calling them wolves is not an insult, of course. Wolves are a fantastic little team. But a little team they remain. For now. We out played them in the 2nd half. Massively. Most teams would not have managed a shot on target.

04 Aug 2019 18:48:56
Calm down robbiesline, just saying it wasnt a world beating performance. You are wearing red tinted glasses and u need to take them off occasionally my friend. 2nd half was decent. We didn't win.

04 Aug 2019 18:53:50
Thanks Robbiesline. At least now I know that I'm not the only one that was really miffed by that piece of commentary.

04 Aug 2019 18:56:44
Why are we so bitter. We said The other day this game doesn’t count as it’s a friendly and friendlies are for fitness not result and performance. City are a fantastic team and Pep is a fantastic manager. But we also have a fantastic team and manager. Why do we care about anyone else. It’s all sour grapes. We should be just as gracious in defeat as we are in victory. For me it was a cracking second half and puts us on the front foot for the important one in 5 days time.

04 Aug 2019 19:03:55
Great match to watch and it was very even overall. man City’s midfield looked far more dangerous than ours, but out intensity in the second half was fantastic and we looked most likely to win until it went to penalties.

Takeaways for me were
- Our fullbacks need to be careful, Trent almost let in City’s attack on a number of occasions and we looked a bit rusty defensively first half, improved significantly in the second half
- Gomez is the best partner to VVD for me, his pace and covering was exceptional at times
- I really thought our midfield looked toothless first half, bringing Keita on made a big difference, as he immediately injected some urgency and his willingness to carry the ball at their defence caused them real problems
- Origi looked OK but still think he’s not a completely natural wide player, neither does Ox look completely comfortable at LW. we missed Mane who could well have made the difference
- Salah looked dangerous as always, just needs to get a bit sharper with his finishing

Good game to dust of any remaining cobwebs, looking forward to the season.

{Ed0333's Note - I still feel we need to bring in a left sided player to challenge Manè.

04 Aug 2019 16:57:49
You should know.

04 Aug 2019 17:35:07
Aaaagh, ed025 strikes again. I tried not to bite but.

{Ed025's Note - i dont even need a hook now robbie, but lots of you are obsessed with pep and i dont know why, you have a great team and are doing very well indeed, but all i see is pep did this, pep did that, if we had their resources, city get help from the refs, city are cheating the FFP rules not a conspiracy mate and you all need to deal with it..

04 Aug 2019 18:23:49
We will be fighting for all honours this season that I can be sure ynwa.

{Ed025's Note - oh i see hampo, so you are going to play your strongest side in the FA and carabao cups then?...hmm we will see mate..

04 Aug 2019 18:24:32
Ed25, stating facts about people's acts is not jealousy. You as a perennial bitter, should know that.

{Ed025's Note - i think we all know im not bitter redwolf, i do say things that sometimes the red side dont like but thats not bitterness mate its saying it like it is, but you dont like that do you?...i know you dont like to hear negative things about your club and thats fair enough but dont lets bury our heads in the sand..

04 Aug 2019 18:28:46
The best team? Salah himself, would have had a quadruple all on his own. I'm happy with the intensity, drive and determination we played with for the whole 95 mins. Our fitness levels are off the charts and blew them away physically which is why we were able to dominate them in the second half throughout.

For full disclosure, I know this is a preseason game BUT Pep did not take it as such and neither did our boys nor Klopp so I'm happy with the way we matched them up and bossed them overall. Let the games begin.

04 Aug 2019 17:34:36
Pretty petty response Ed. Don't know if it was to wind me up or ignorance on your part, but either way, have a good day. Since you don't know me and since I'm on record saying City would win the league again this year, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and say you are just trying to wind me up. Didn't work, sorry about that. Have a good day.

{Ed025's Note - just a bit of friendly merseyside banter stone, you have a good day as well my friend..

04 Aug 2019 19:19:17
No Ed, you make ignorant responses about people you don't know. My comment was in response to something that Ed001 had mentioned. You took my post way out of context. I made an observation and made a comment. Your response to that was silly and sounded bitter on your part.

{Ed025's Note - ignorant is certainly not the word stone i can never be accused of that mate, you would have to be a real flake or certainly very precious to think that..

04 Aug 2019 19:17:03
Not got time to read the replies but spot on stone.

04 Aug 2019 19:28:47
Saying what like it is, Ed25? Who told you you tell it like it is? Whoever did that conned you forever, man. All you have is an opinion, end of story. Also, That we are jealous of City? Come off it, man. It's not about someone saying something negative about LFC gets me wound up. There is nothing negative about stating a fact. Just as there is nothing jealous about stating a fact. You should understand that by now.

We have a fantastic team and a fantastic manager. So do City. We belted them today and even Pep himself would admit it if he's honest and had Salah had his shooting boots on and a bit of luck, we put 5 past them with Salah getting a quadruple. Now, that is telling it like it is.

{Ed025's Note - if my autie had balls she would be my uncle though redwolf, you cant really complain about luck after the amount you had last year mate, but i do agree that you have a great team and a great manager which is something i have proclaimed for quite a while now..

04 Aug 2019 19:45:34
No need to patronise topdog. We were the better team who had more than twice as many shots on target than them.
In the second half we blew city away. We didn't lose in 90 minutes. We were better in the second half than they were in the first. That isn't redtinted glasses. Do you know what happens to near on every team who face city? They get hammered. We were more than their equal. If we are not the best team in the world right now? Who are? City? If youd asked me at half time i would have said city. But they're not. We are. Yes they won on penalties, but in the league that's a point. If we play with the intensity we did in the 2nd half, i can't see any team in the league beating us. Except maybe city. They are absolutely brilliant.

And so are we. Its okay top dog (im getting nose bleeds too)

04 Aug 2019 19:54:16
Apologies topdog. I probably am getting a bit over excited. Running out as European champs was great. We were good though brother, weren't we. Hendo in that second half! What a player. All the boys who came on were class. Ox, shaq, lallana, matip. Keita too. Good times are coming i think.

04 Aug 2019 19:56:03
First half we were poor, second half we were the better team. Positives to take from the game, I would say Firmino who looked sharp and Salah, although he didn’t take his chances. Defensively we looked solid when Matip came in and we dropped the high line. It’s only the Community shield so not the end of the world, on a side note I just knew by looking at Gini’s face and body language he would miss lol.

04 Aug 2019 20:19:32
Exactly RedWolf. I am very secure in my support of Liverpool and am certanly not jealous of any other club in the world. I love Liverpool and will never apologize for that and will certainly never be jealous of anyone.

04 Aug 2019 20:08:37
maybe you should look up the definition of ignorant then Ed. Your response to my post was ignorant on your part. Not stupid, just ignorant in the fact that you responded firstly to somehting that was not addressed to you and secondly you took it out of context as you obviously did not know the meaning behind the post.

{Ed025's Note - you are taking things i say too seriously mate, you need to chill a bit i think, you are confusing banter with real life and maybe a bit of jamaican old holburn would be the order of the day..

04 Aug 2019 20:24:18
Ed having luck didn't make a difference over the 38 games or are we going on about Evertons cup finals.
We got beat Once last season by a team that out scored us but didn't out play us on the night and if you say that Kompany wasn't lucky to not see red for the challenge on Salah then you are a bitter.
Man City won the league because they where the best team over the 38 games but we didn't get close because we were lucky.
Luck over the season evens itself out.
Good luck for the season Ed but I don't think you will find a lucky win in the Derby gets you 2nd in the league.
No offence just saying it as it is.

{Ed025's Note - none taken tyler, but you were very lucky in some games last season and had very little injury worries mate, you deserved to be where you are though i will say that and your manager is top notch..

04 Aug 2019 20:36:42
Ed025 you’re going to need a bigger boat.

{Ed025's Note - sharks dont frighten me a street end boy.. :)

04 Aug 2019 20:46:13
Wrong again Ed, Kentucky Bourbon is what is needed. Nothing better really. I love the banter with you really and have nothing but respect for you and all of the Eds.

{Ed025's Note - i do like a JD or twelve myself stone, sometimes we all have to lighten up a bit mate as life itself is serious enough, banter seems to be a dying art but i must say that most on these pages actually get it..

04 Aug 2019 20:56:00
agreed Ed. I'm a Woodford Reserve bourbon person, I do like Talisker Scotch though as well.

{Ed025's Note - you have good taste mate..

04 Aug 2019 21:02:49
Top man, Ed25. I never mentioned luck in any of my responses to you. You did so that's a personal prob. you are going to have to go figure out on your own.

Stone, I'm totally cool with my team and my love for my club of 35 years. If anyone is accusing me of being jealous is projecting his/ her own jealousy. If I was not arsed when Utd of all clubs (who have won more trophies than City have fans) were ruling the roost and we were also-rans so I am definitely not arsed nor jealous about them or even City now that we are Kings of Europe and giving City a bloody nose each time we play them to the point of Guardiola often losing it and often making an arse of himself on the touchline for the world to see. Up Da Freaking Pool, man!

04 Aug 2019 21:09:40
as do you Ed. You are a good person, I can tell. I hope Everton finish in top 6. I"d love to meet you if I ever have the chance to visit England. I'm an Anglophile so I hope to soon.

{Ed025's Note - that would be cool mate..

04 Aug 2019 21:51:22
Salah, thank you mate.

04 Aug 2019 22:13:27
Don't know if the refs are on their side, but City have certainly rigged the goal line technology!

04 Aug 2019 22:15:00
Thats a good point redwolf. If you play with the type of intensity we did today i guess you need someone special to get and keep you as fit as posible. didn't look like the boys had had a long summer. That was a shock seeing em chase down (on the rare occasions we didn't have the ball that 2nd half) i think it shocked city too.

04 Aug 2019 21:47:00
Ed025 having banter on the 'Banter' site, just read back through this entire thread and he has made no offensive or personal remarks whatsoever.
We lost no matter how many chances created, but the game means nothing so no worries. Some people are oversensitive and as for Peps yellow card, there will be plenty of managers receiving them this season, so it tells us nothing.
You have given me a good laugh this evening Ed025, keep going pal.

{Ed025's Note - i intend to greenflash mate..cheers..
