Is Lovern all but gone Tris?


{Ed001's Note - all but gone? No, he might well leave but nothing has been done yet. No offer has been acceptable so far. Plenty of time yet though.}

1.) 29 Aug 2019 23:54:31
Looks like Roma have got Smalling instead.


2.) 30 Aug 2019 00:39:51
With Roma seemingly looking like they are getting smalling I'm guessing they have ended their interest in lovren?

3.) 30 Aug 2019 06:30:26
Jeez, they must have been desparate, Smalling is an awful footballer.

4.) 30 Aug 2019 17:00:46
I'd suggest Lovren is staying after what Klopp said today i. e. we had four CBs last season and still had to have Fab do it due to injuries and that they will ALL be needed again this season.

5.) 30 Aug 2019 18:55:25
If we want to challenge for all the top honours you need 4 capable CBs over the course of maybe 50/ 60 games. Be a huge risk to let him go, just 1 injury immediately leaves us bare at the back. Lovren is far from perfect but as squad player for backup with his experience there aren't many CBs around with better quality as a 4th choice. 1 more year and then let him choose his next club if he can't hold down a regular spot for us.

This time last year matip was in his position but took his opportunity to claim 1st team spot. Competition is strong in CB and let the young lads have another year of development before we prematurely rely on having to use them.

6.) 30 Aug 2019 20:42:13
I really don't understand all of the negativity about Lovren. I know he's had a few bad games but he's a very good defender.

If we get an injury or two and he gets into the team, I'd put money on him doing a Matip and keeping his place (injuries permitting, of course) .

When he gets his chance, he knows what he needs to do to keep his place. He's seen it with his own eyes.

{Ed025's Note - hmmmm..

7.) 30 Aug 2019 21:35:49
One thing that has been clear is lovren looks much better beside VVD, as does matip and Gomez. Yet matip and lovren are poor together. The key is when they have a leader, someone to organise and talk beside them they look much better. Lovren and matip don't show those qualities.

Like Ferdinand and vidic were such a good pair as they complimented each other's strenghts.

Henchoz looked good with hyypia leading but put henchoz beside matip for example and they would struggle.

You need the right pairing to suit your players strengths. Lovren and matip have had a much better performance level over the last 18 months with virg than anytime previous.

8.) 31 Aug 2019 23:46:28
For once I’m with Ed25 on this. Lovren is not a very good defender. He’s a decent 4th choice but one that you hope you never have to use.

9.) 02 Sep 2019 00:34:12
{Ed025's Note - hmmmm.

why hmmmm, what are you insinuating ed025 . He is a Liverpool player so must be very good . an earlier post put Matip as one of the best CBs in the world, Lovern is not far behind if not even better, world cup and champions league finalist . The red shirt automatically turns you into the best in the world, remember Djimi Traore, a champions league winner.

{Ed025's Note - you sound like redwolf roy, now i know your very tongue in cheek here but matip has done very well to be fair to him mate..



02 Oct 2018 13:57:03
How ya Ed hope your ok mate? Ed002 have you heard any rumbling's transfer wise about Liverpool in January?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing explicitly about January Barry, but I have explained elsewhere that the club has been showing some interest in players.}

1.) 02 Oct 2018 20:04:54
Ok thanks a million Ed👍.



12 Jul 2018 19:46:54
Hello all! I really do believe that we have a squad to be at least in the top 4 every season but for me what we really need is a cup win. Yes I know it's the league we want but a cup win would I believe would really get the ball rolling for us.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 20:05:34
Agree Barry, it's time for us to win a trophy.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 20:12:40
Make you right BIL about winning a cup will give us that winning mentality which we sorely miss.

3.) 12 Jul 2018 20:26:57
Totally agree, we've got to break that ice somewhere along the line.

4.) 12 Jul 2018 20:34:38
Good point but I really think we will win the league this year. After the strides we made last season I think we’ve recruited far better than any other team. I really think city are going to be caught out big time this year. I think there will be far less of a fear factor.

5.) 12 Jul 2018 20:41:42
This is the longest trophy drought I remember,7 seasons a season longer than the last. Any trophy will do me this season. In 13 years we've won 1 trophy for me that's not good enough. I hope we can juggle the squad enough to compete on 4 fronts. That means staying in the cups so that our young players can get a run in the team and be ready when called upon. Towards the end of last season we had Camacho Woodburn and Jones on the bench but I can understand Klopp's reluctance to use them especially after the Chelsea match when every game was a must not lose.

6.) 12 Jul 2018 20:58:45
When we win the league, the flood gates will open methinks.

7.) 12 Jul 2018 21:08:35
It’s fair to say we are hopeful of a win this year. Perhaps silverware is highly possible. But iwe our unrealistic pressures on ourselves by saying we will win this year. The players haven’t set foot on the pitch, transfers aren’t over the line, injuries could happen or hopefully not. I really do think the Premier League has evolved into such an interesting league! We now have a top 6 divide which rests on a knife edge, underdog teams like Leicester possible of winning the league with pure grit and now teams like Wolves who have the potential to re-establish themselves as a force in the league from a lower league. Sadly a lot of this is down to spending power in my opinion but who wins the league each year is not so foreseeable!
Whether we can get silverware or more depends on how we play game to game (obviously) so let’s keep on backing our team for a tasty season of attacking football and hope we’re rewarded at the end of it!

8.) 12 Jul 2018 21:24:11
We have a champions league finalist in our team.

9.) 12 Jul 2018 21:28:28
Plus a World Cup finalist as well. Good DL.

10.) 12 Jul 2018 22:06:54
Spot on aoe, me too mate.

11.) 13 Jul 2018 00:02:14
Agreed. Let's forget the league title and go after the league cup.

Seriously what difference does it make!

12.) 13 Jul 2018 02:20:35
Let's go after every game next season.

13.) 13 Jul 2018 09:40:51
I saw a post from MKS the other day relating to our "success" and nearly responded stating "how have we been successful? we've not won anything since Klopp's arrival! ". then I realized success is "the accomplishment of an aim or purpose".

We aimed to improve our squad - accomplished (and still improving! )

We aimed for top 4 - accomplished in back to back seasons

Now our aim has to be to get that silverware! - I'm aware we have tried and failed on 3 occasions in finals : (

Let make 2018/ 2019 the year for silverware!

14.) 13 Jul 2018 16:32:33
It's going to be a long season with lots of games. It is important to remember we won't win them all. So please do not rip the team / club to shreds when we do loose.

{Ed033's Note - What should Liverpool FC do if there are any loose shreds? :)



19 Mar 2018 12:09:02
What's the chances of Ndidi Ed001?


{Ed001's Note - very slim Leicester are not interested in selling him.}

1.) 19 Mar 2018 15:19:20
I like Ndidi and think he would be a good replacement for Emre. I would still like to see someone of Jorginho's ilk come in as well though. Someone to pull strings from deeper when needed. With Naby Keita arriving too I think those three would be an excellent mix and would allow us to take our time finding someone to replace Phil without getting desperate.

2.) 19 Mar 2018 18:04:33
I would take Ndidi tomorrow as he is very good and LFC fans will have a good chance to assess him as he will be on duty with Nigeria at the WC. Now will LC sell? That is another issue as Ed02 has said.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 21:32:15
I want both Ndidi and Jorginho to join Keita at the club. Yes, that means 3 new first choice mids in one window but Klopp knows very well that the above 3 can help the team dictate play and take our game to the next level.
I'd give the GKs and defenders another season and concentrate on strengthening the midfield for now.

4.) 20 Mar 2018 10:19:49
finding someone to replace phil? he's a good player i get it, but id say that his role has already been replaced by another role.

its not about replacing him anymore next window, its about taking the club to another level.



19 Nov 2017 11:54:47
Morning Ed's and Red's. Can anyone tell me the name of the young CB Ed025 was talking about on the Sharkpod please.


{Ed002's Note - Perr Shuurs.}

1.) 19 Nov 2017 15:54:53
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Barry.}

Great news lad's got tickets sorted for the Bournemouth game seats will be in the Sir KK stand and I CANNOT WAIT😁👍.


1.) 20 Feb 2020 17:43:59
How have you got tickets there like rocking horse xxxx.

2.) 20 Feb 2020 18:33:14
Through the supporters club over here.

{Ed025's Note - great stuff barry..

3.) 20 Feb 2020 19:09:07
The club applies for tickets months in advance lad's. What about that bevvie Ed?

{Ed025's Note - yeah barry still on as far as im concerned mate..

4.) 20 Feb 2020 19:20:02
Managed to get tickets for the Arsenal away game though in Arsenal end - could be interesting if we score lots of goals and win!

5.) 20 Feb 2020 21:40:13
Good on ya Barry. Enjoy mate ya lucky man.

6.) 20 Feb 2020 22:42:12
Cheer's Robbie fair play mate. Send me a email Ed and we'll arrange to meet mate🍺.



28 Jan 2020 23:14:18
Lad's lad's I'm in trouble. My little man is really in his defiant statge. How defiant you may as well he want's to put Utd poster's up in his room. I know he's only 5 but would the rack or cat of nine tails work? Please help from very distraught father😭.


1.) 29 Jan 2020 05:36:59
Just make him watch a United game, that’ll knock some sense into him.

2.) 29 Jan 2020 05:55:59
Sounds like my Mum's reaction when my sister came out, and that was 30 years ago. However, my mum came to embrace it, can't see you doing that Barry.

3.) 29 Jan 2020 07:06:38
Sell him, start again.

4.) 29 Jan 2020 07:07:29
Get him a Man Utd best performances 19/ 20 season DVD. Once he gets through that 60 seconds he will be buring those Man Utd posters.

5.) 29 Jan 2020 07:43:10
your not doing your job properly Barry. Liverpool are the best team in Europe with many top layers andmanager. Man U are a total mess atm. Should be the easiest sell of all time. Sort it now or regret it forever.

6.) 29 Jan 2020 07:58:03
Too late for a refund? I don't mean the poster.

7.) 29 Jan 2020 08:24:46
The missus won't let me sell him RP.

8.) 29 Jan 2020 08:36:33
Read him the Man Utd banter page as a light-hearted bedtime story.

9.) 29 Jan 2020 08:43:17
Just sit down and watch Liverpool games with him and he’ll soon come around especially when the victory parade Media coverage starts.

My son almost turned to Chelsea when Torres was sold. I know how you must be feeling but we got through it. I do like to remind him especially this season!

10.) 29 Jan 2020 09:43:57
Sounds to me like he has a friend at school that he looks up to that's a manc. The youngens can be quite impressionable at the best of times.
Best thing to do is send him to a new school l. You have to turn the tide quickly before he gets old enough to to have too much pride to turn back that would be a disaster.

11.) 29 Jan 2020 10:17:09
Show him Liverpool wins on video since the 70's. A game every few days. And show him ManU games (but losses only) . Every few days.

The brainwashing will be complete after a few months. 🤞.

12.) 29 Jan 2020 10:45:00
Barry tell your son you only get to support the dark side if your a naughty boy that no one at school will be your friend that Xmas ends as soon as poster goes on wall no birthdays sky and BT taken out bed at six pm every night he has to go to school by walking mum will wear the worst PJs ever it’s up to you son or you can support the best team in the world if he says the dark side still get him adopted ASAP Barry good luck mate.

13.) 29 Jan 2020 11:23:09
OP, I hear your pain. At a similar age my boy came home from school, all excited, announcing triumphantly, "Daddy, daddy, I support Man Utd! ". I looked him straight in the eye and said "No you don't. "

And he doesn't.

14.) 29 Jan 2020 14:14:24
Ground him, stop his pocket money and make him watch Utd games to see how dire they are. Also give home some quality Liverpool games to watch. When he sees his error all is forgiven, if he persists he stays grounded. got to be strong Barry, just remember, us Irish are a stubborn bunch so you can do it!

15.) 29 Jan 2020 14:45:29
when my little man said similar (I support the blues) I said it was fine but he would have to live in the garden. thankfully it was December and it raining outside. If it had been July he may have tried it.

16.) 29 Jan 2020 15:21:42
Bring him back to the coom barry I'm sure there's special circumstances for an exchange 😂.

17.) 29 Jan 2020 16:22:52
BarryinLouth, I am afraid this is as clear a failure of parenting as I have ever encountered. How on earth did you allow this to happen - you have had 5 years to set the boy on the right path. Hopefully it is not too late to save the poor lad but you must send immediately for an old priest and a young priest and have the boy exorcised. Then you must dedicate yourself to his re-education.

18.) 29 Jan 2020 17:52:34
I'm so angry with myself WW I thought that I had him primed from day 1 and then he turns around and kicks me in the gonads, the little b#**$x.



25 Jan 2020 14:28:19
Right lad's away from title winning or parade talk here's a question. What former player now commentator do you not mind and which get's right up your nose?
A) Martin Keown
B) Michael Owen.


{Ed047's Note - Owen Hargreaves winds my watch big time
and I like Glenn Hoddle

1.) 25 Jan 2020 15:20:21
Roy Keane is a broken record who is talking himself out of future managerial employment every time he opens his mouth. I remember in Klopp’s third season Keane declared that Liverpool were going nowhere under Klopp! He never got over Fergie dumping him when he was past his best, this despite having witnessed Fergie do that to almost everybody else throughout his time at Old Trafford.

Steve Claridge is quite astute and doesn’t take it all too seriously. But Mourinho was the best by far at analyzing a game.

2.) 25 Jan 2020 15:26:21
Likes: Glenn Hoddle. Hansen before he retired. Mourinho before he got the spurs job. Ruud Gullit i thought was decent as well. Peter Crouch purely for being the coolest most lovely bloke in football. Probably a couple more i can’t remember off the top of my head.

Dislikes: Merson, Nicholas, Jason Cundy. Consistent utter nonsense 100% of the time. Souness just comes across as constantly confused. Gary Neville used to be okay but the crisis at United has firmly sent his head spinning. Honourable mention for Martin Tyler, a man who shows a clear distain for Liverpool in his commentary, as well as Jermaine Jenas, purely because he seems to be on every single sporting tv channel every second of the day, he is inescapable and i have now convinced myself he is either omnipotent or a time traveller.

3.) 25 Jan 2020 15:28:55
Not sure if its my bias but ex-Man U players irritate me as pundits particularly Van Persie, Michael Owen and Paul ‘Interesting’ Scholes.
Having said that, i like Gary Neville.

4.) 25 Jan 2020 15:10:09
Neil mellor is my favourite, Henry was terrible imo.

5.) 25 Jan 2020 15:49:55
Tim "The Dim" Sherwood is perennially insufferable and his bitterness towards us is a huge cause for concern mentally, IMO.

6.) 25 Jan 2020 16:09:38
Hoddle winds me up. The sooner he gets out of harry kanes bumcheeks the better. don't mind Clinton Morrison on sky though but its hard to choose they all annoy me.

7.) 25 Jan 2020 16:10:04
Have to say, have enjoyed hearing what Crouchy has to say, and I don’t think I can say that about any of the others. He seems a top bloke who knows it’s just a game, and obviously likes to have a laugh and doesn’t take himself too seriously. So got to say :

He’s big,
He’s red,
His feet stick out the bed,
Peter Crouch!

8.) 25 Jan 2020 16:36:16
Jenas injured for 10 years, talks about the game as if he's been there done it all for the best teams around. Usually totally wrong with his post match analysis.

9.) 25 Jan 2020 16:48:24
1) Neville's generally a decent commentator and pundit, well apart from the "OOOOHHH! " that you get whenever there's a good save or someone beats their man. He's not massively insightful tactically, but I honestly don't think many of the player turned pundits are, and he's probably one of the better ones. When Rafa, Mourinho and Wenger have done punditry in the past year, they've run rings around the ex-players.

I was also fond of John Giles for a while. Before he developed his tendancy to ramble.

2) Cannot stand Michael Owen at all. His voice alone can kill witches.
Also an Irish TV thing, Richard Sadlier always comes across as very, very bitter and angry.

10.) 25 Jan 2020 17:10:14
I like hoddle too. Thought he was a good manager as well. Old school commentary. Knows what he's on about. I like danny Murphy too.

Keown's an idiot. Feet like paint brushes! Twot. Micah richards is too biased imo.

Crouch is a goodun. Don't like linekar (is that sacrilege)

11.) 25 Jan 2020 17:24:17
Likes: Gullit, Mourinho (pre-Spurs), Crouch and Robbie Earle (if you can get on any American NBC streams) . I quite enjoy watching Peter Schmeichel too just for coming across as such a smurf, but funny without knowing it.

Dislikes: Hoddle, Owen, Jenas, Danny Murphy. However, no-one can get any worse than Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop on ESPN. How Nicol could be such an outstanding and intelligent player but be so utterly thick; I just cannot figure out how it's possible. The dribble that is spouted out of his mouth is ridiculous.

12.) 25 Jan 2020 17:59:59
Like - Graeme Souness

Can’t stand - Literally everyone else but particular Steve Nicol, Danny Murphy and Jermaine Jenas.

13.) 25 Jan 2020 18:16:16
Like/ enjoy G. Neville, Crouch, Souness,
Dislike Jenas Murphy and Crooks.

{Ed047's Note - forgot about that halfwit Crooks his team’s of the week on the BBC website are a joke! 🤦‍♂️

14.) 25 Jan 2020 18:44:38
I like souness but Neville and Keane are so bitter they make ed25 look as sweet as a nut.

{Ed025's Note - i am as sweet as a nut lerchy.. :)

15.) 25 Jan 2020 18:52:09
Spud Murphy is quality. He talks sense, is very open and honest I’m in his analysis too

Contrast that with Owen.

{Ed025's Note - murphy is a prat aggerdo, as bad as owen and macnanaman who are to commentating what karius is to goalkeeping...there is a trend though mate.. :)

16.) 25 Jan 2020 19:53:09
Can’t abide Andy Townsend but I do like Gary Neville, even though he’s a manc.

17.) 25 Jan 2020 22:12:07
Lineker is okay. He seems to be one of the few who has transitioned well from an on field career to an off field career. I like Steve McMahon, Ian Wright and Graeme Souness. Even Dion Dublin makes me laugh sometimes; I don't expect anything cerebral from him. I don't care much for the ex ManU brigade; they don't even try to hide their clear bias. Gary Neville being the exception to that, more and more. Carragher is okay. But honestly, that high pitch in his voice can be very grating at times.

Jason MacAteer really got my goat with his last comment about Klopp's possible departure. He really has no freaking idea what he is talking about most of the time. No match to his contemporary Danny Murphy.

18.) 25 Jan 2020 23:41:59
I really like Alice Jones (is that her name? Arsenal and England player) but for very different reasons. Tbf she is quite knowledgeable.

Steve nicol apparently said he'd rather Liverpool went unbeaten in the league than win the treble. That's the prem, the fa Cup AND the champions league. What planet is he on?

Jenas really does my nut in on motd extra. I watched it once and it was so quick. They talk about one thing and 40 seconds later they're on a completely different subject. It made me feel really old and i think Jenas is my age!

19.) 26 Jan 2020 08:19:07
Yeah I like wrighty too! Forgot about him. He's funny and honest. Doesn't always get it right but seems a good bloke. I like the fact he is always bigging up the brothers. He did it back in the day when football was rife with racism and it took some balls.

Tim cahill was absolutely awful on his 2 or 3 motd appearances. On his last time he used a double negative and linekar and? Shearer I think looked at each other. The look said it all "Tim's out"

Murphy has quite a few dislikes on here but he seems a good bloke to me. I don't understand the hate? I liked him as a player too. Clever and a great passer.

I tell you who I really like but he's not an ex player. Dan the man from football focus. Good lad. And Mark lawrenson always makes me laugh. My favourite pundit moment was Robbie fowler almost in tears when we beat Barcelona. What a legend!

20.) 26 Jan 2020 08:55:23
I think the actual commentating by Mcmanaman is woeful, Tyler hates Liverpool. Quite like the stuff Cara and Neville do. Lot of banter and decent pundits on the defensive side.

21.) 26 Jan 2020 10:20:01
Used to like rte when Giles, Brady and dunphy were on it and started arguing, like Carra and Neville banter, can't think of anyone I dislike too much, like hoddle and what a player he was.

22.) 26 Jan 2020 12:38:21
Like Graeme Souness, straight talking, no nonsense.
Dislike Garth Crooks as he talks utter nonsense while trying to sound insightful and intelligent.
All the others are the same.

23.) 26 Jan 2020 12:46:19
Good call Robbie. Alex Jones knows her football!

24.) 26 Jan 2020 13:14:38
As an American, I can't fathom why Steve Nicol is still employed by ESPN. The two Robbies are good though. NBCSN by and large does a great job of presenting the matches. One I liked to see surprisingly is Tim Howard. Was odd to see him commentating on Liverpool games while still employed by Everton, but even then he was sensible.

25.) 26 Jan 2020 14:06:48
Robbiesline, I don’t hate Danny Murphy or any of the others (I don’t know any of them personally so I can’t hate them) but I genuinely can’t stand any of them as pundits other than Graeme Souness. What I want from media football pundits is that they provide me with a knowledge and insight into a professional football match that I would not otherwise have. What virtually all of them provide is statements of the blindingly obvious and a series of well-worn football cliches. They are also totally inconsistent in their views - Eg “Salah went down far to easily there” but “Kane felt contact and was entitled to go down”. Really, they get money for old rope.

26.) 25 Jan 2020 22:12:07
Lineker is okay. He seems to be one of the few who has transitioned well from an on field career to an off field career. I like Steve McMahon, Ian Wright and Graeme Souness.

13 Jan 2020 11:38:27
Tris just read your article on Shanks absolutely brilliant mate. I can't get enough information and stories about. One thing that you said in the article is the club really is all about the manager and that's the way it should be.


{Ed001's Note - cheers Bazza glad you enjoyed.}

1.) 13 Jan 2020 16:56:35
Where can I find this?

{Ed001's Note - Shankly Article

2.) 14 Jan 2020 18:21:55
Cheers Ed, great read, my da has the collection of match of the day decade videos, I remember watching them as a kid and they interviewed Liverpool supporters when shanks retired as the shock and disbelief on their faces, also bastion of invincibility is something that stuck in my head from watching it all those years ago, question. do you see many similarities in his and klopps football Management styles.

{Ed001's Note - yes, I said that before we went for Klopp that I thought he was the closest thing in the modern game to Shanks.}



06 Jan 2020 16:08:12
Have to say lad's what a performance yesterday unbelievable. Everybody has their own stand out player but for me it was Neco Williams. He stood out in the league cup game against Arsenal but he was even better against Everton. If TTA got injured leave Gomez, Milner or who everelse could fill in and stick in young Neco Williams he can well do a job in there no problem.


1.) 06 Jan 2020 16:23:20
Lallana for me. That armband raised his level and led the team.

Gomez second. Outstanding.

The young players did fantastic but senior players still were the best players on show.

The liverpool ones im talking about of course 😀.

Imagine if we played our first team at Goodison and their under 12s beat us 1-0. If they passed us off the pitch and a scouse blue curled one in off the crossbar from 20 yards over Van Dijks head and passed Allison. Every time Mane touched the ball he put the ball out for a throw in, and Robbo got subbed off after being skinned for an hour off some 16 year old Die hard Blue. Hahaha I would be under a rock and you wouldn't hear from me for a year.

FC8 Everton must have one hell of an under 12s team 😂.

4.) 06 Jan 2020 18:29:54
1jj, maybe they should have fielded their U-12's last night instead of the pathetic, embarrassing dross that turned up at Anfield to receiving a footballing lesson from a bunch of kids who prolly still had to wait for their dads to come pick them up from the Stadium after the game.

5.) 06 Jan 2020 18:41:06
FC8, a bit of an exaggeration, haha.

I really sympathise with Everton fans after that game. It was an embarrassing performance and result but let's not forget it was a no-win situation for them. If they'd have won, we'd have just dismissed it as we only played the kids.

EpicPotato, sympathise with Everton fans? I take it you don’t live in the Merseyside area and don’t have to put up with them on an almost daily basis? There are very few good humoured banter merchants like Ed025 left.

7.) 06 Jan 2020 19:51:11
Does the"banter"get nasty WW?

8.) 06 Jan 2020 20:17:46
I loved the old fashioned banter but not the bile that passes between the two sets of supporters now. At the risk of sounding like the dinosaur that I really am, I think that the poison on social media has got a lot to do with it. But whatever the cause, I have experienced the bitterness and just cannot sympathise with Everton supporters when we beat them.

9.) 06 Jan 2020 21:47:45
WW glad you are back on the site.

How did you feel when Man U pissed all over us for 20+ years and they are not even in same city, were you a little bitter? Everton would have won the European cup in the 80's if not banned. I lived in the city but only for a couple years and realise it is not the same now, with a few diffent decisions roles could be reversed.

I was on the Kop when Davey Thompson was our best player, so I take nothing for granted and do sympathise with the blue side.

10.) 06 Jan 2020 22:21:25
I have to agree with WW.

I grew up watching the greet Liverpool and Everton sides of the 80’s, mentioned before, I was at the old Wembley in 86 when we won 3-1, the whole stadium singing Merseyside. And, just because they had a great side under HK, There would be no guarantees they’d have won a European. Up, history tells us this is not always the case, look at us in 2005.

Roll on to the modern era and when I go to goodison away and hear them singing murderers, and we all know what they are singing, sorry mark, no sympathy. You also need to read some of the vile stuff on social media. Did you not hear their “ since 1985 chant on Sunday?

It also has nothing to do with United, we sang about them being poor during the 80’s so it’s horses for courses. Also when you realise and know how they achieved their success, there really is no bitterness.

11.) 06 Jan 2020 22:46:21
you make some points Drogie but what your saying is 100% biased and one sided. There will be 1000's of decent Everton fans with very similar stories to tell about their experienses regarding LFC fans.

I have been sitting with Liverpool fans who refused to recognise a Barnes goal because he was black. One sided arguments are pointless. The gloating fans on here in the last few days I don't agree with one bit, short memories.

12.) 07 Jan 2020 11:11:44
To be fair I think it gets worse as generations go by and honestly sky and showing matches on tv has a lot to do with it my stepson is a bitter manc hates liverpool and says he hates all scoucers and can't give a reason just he was brought up that way (bare in mind half my family are scouse and the other half Norwegian so I'm about as stereotypical liverpool fan as you get) anyways people sit in thier houses shouting and chanting things they would not do in public with young ears listening at a young age it corrupts I wish for the days of healthy banter and a respectful chat between fans but I think them days are long gone and will never return.

13.) 07 Jan 2020 11:16:21
Fair enough drogie but there’s idiots at every club. I was at the united game 2 seasons ago and there was small sections of our fans making aeroplane like movements.

I think it’s more to do with the disgusting crap hole Britain is coming. Took the mrs to ane today and been told there’s a 14 hour wait for a doctor and walk in centres are closed!

Anybody seen the new joker film? Sums up this selfish society we live in. Unfortunately good people are few and far between nowadays.

{Ed025's Note - i hope your wrong with that last bit lerchy..

14.) 07 Jan 2020 13:06:23
Soft touch Britain Ed, forget young offenders institutes. Hard labour camps with regular beatings for these feral beings! Of course you can’t do that though you might upset someone. Ever the optimist.

Hope you’re well Ed for every dark cloud there’s a silver lining mate and maybe you lads needed that game for Carlo to see the pathetic attitude of some of the senior pros! Sigi and schneiderlin were two of the main culprits for me.

{Ed025's Note - yeah they were the worst of a bad buch lerchy mate..

Mark08, thanks for the welcome back. I stopped posting because I was stupidly getting drawn into pointless, argumentative exchanges with other posters (and occasionally with the Eds) and I was annoyed with myself. I didn’t stop checking the site on a daily basis though and it just felt right to post again.

We will never know whether the Everton team of the mid 1980s was good enough to win the European Cup but a sizeable minority of their fan base believes that they would have done. That has become an article of faith for them and they bitterly blame Liverpool supporters - all of us - for stopping that from happening.

Add in the more recent phenomenon of social media and as Drogie has pointed out a very unpleasant atmosphere has developed at derby matches with some horrible chants and abuse that goes well beyond acceptable banter. So, no sympathy from me.

16.) 08 Jan 2020 06:12:08
They may have missed out on 1 but we missed out on 4.

I have to agree with Ed025 only one team I care about and that's Liverpool. Sure When we are about to meet them then yes get the banter going but as soon as the game is over they are consigned to history. Its all about us lad's so enjoy it cause it's been to bloody long YNWA.


{Ed025's Note - i will have that barry mate..

Have to agree with Ed001 regarding Sir Bob Paisley. He wouldn't have lost a second of sleep moving a player like Salah on but there would have been a replacement lined up well in advance. I honestly don't have a issue with Salah moving on if he really want's to as Ed002 has always said players are transient they come and go and that's football lad's.

Unreal lad's I can't remember the last time that I looked at the rumours page. Just goes to show how far we have progressed. Ed047 can be a wee bit mischievous at times me thinks.


{Ed047's Note - Barry can’t believe you’re casting assertions on my good character mate! 😉
