Hi Ed, do
You know if LFC are exploring transfers for this month?

Thanks in advance mate.

Bmena-red

{Ed002's Note - Read the posts.}


1.) 11 Jan 2024 22:11:25
Bmena-red I think the simple answer is no mate. Or very unlikely, as Linders advised this week we invested heavily in the summer already.


2.) 12 Jan 2024 08:04:06
I would suspect the only chance to sign a player in Jan if a main summer target becomes available by considering a move to a rival. Other than that nothing happening this window, unless Mbappe wants to sign a pre contract for next season which I doubt he is either off to Real or staying at PSG.


3.) 12 Jan 2024 08:36:24
Unless they think Thiago and Baj can’t get fully fit to properly contribute. Then we will need to sign someone, probably one from the list ed002 has been providing.


4.) 12 Jan 2024 14:18:42
Cheers folks! Doesn’t seem that any of our targets will become available in January. I don’t acctually agree that we need to sign anyone Mark. I would have liked some reinforcements at LB but unless we plan to sell Tsimi in the summer it probably wouldn’t make much sense.


5.) 12 Jan 2024 16:50:14
All i’m saying is, take salah’s wage and double it over 5 years, that’s 180million. Combined cost of fee and wages for a replacement of his calibre would cost well over that. Just make the french lad’s mum happy and get it done… come on.


6.) 13 Jan 2024 03:13:56
I don’t think we will sign any one and, in all honesty, the squad depth is good enough now. We can always improve but there isn't a pressing need for anyone, and I like that the bshsnce of the current squad gives game time to our younger players.


7.) 13 Jan 2024 10:52:23
Spot on @Seano.


 

 

07 Sep 2023 23:40:56
Hi Ed,

Thanks for your work today get the transfer window, I'm sure it gets monotonous at times.

I'm really pleased with our business this summer, I think szbo and mac are brilliant and the endo transfer hopefully allows Bajcetic more time to get up to speed.

Do you think the club would have made a bid for Bellingham had they known Henderson and Fabinho would be leaving? In hindsight he didn't go for that much with the market inflating so rapidly with Saudi Arabian influence.

Cheers.

Bmena-red

{Ed002's Note - Bellingham was never going to be joining LIverpool. Real Madrid are a very attractive option.}


1.) 08 Sep 2023 10:22:23
It’s a bloody nice city too.


2.) 08 Sep 2023 11:40:05
Bellingham's salary demands would have made it impossible for the club to do, regardless of the size of the fee.


3.) 08 Sep 2023 12:30:16
Fair enough, cheers for response. He looks a superstar and Madrid have a fearsome midfield for next few years it seems.

As I say, very happy with our midfield moving forward as well.


4.) 08 Sep 2023 18:18:06
I predict Bellingham will return to England after 5 years or so in Madrid. Hopefully Liverpool will be in a position to sign him and I suspect he will be keen to join over City or Arsenal or Chelsea especially if Klopp remains the coach.


5.) 08 Sep 2023 19:48:18
Bellingham wouldn't have played upfront for us and as such not done what he's doing for a Madrid.

He is doing something entirely different over there. Also there's more speed than La liga as well.

Genuinely believe we got the right player for us and Bellingham went to the right club for him.

We'll compare in the 24/ 25 CL final.


6.) 08 Sep 2023 21:04:40
Mad to think there was a time when we couldn't sign Gareth Barry for 12 million.

Now we are dropping 60 mils on world class talent like sboz.


7.) 09 Sep 2023 08:26:59
Delicious tapas vs fish&chips, no brainer!

{Ed025's Note - absolutely Lee....fish and chips is amazing compared to that tapas crap...and olives?..what are they all about?..


8.) 09 Sep 2023 10:35:04
Word up Ed025 ?.


9.) 09 Sep 2023 13:29:53
Ed025 am from Grimsby fish and chips every day of the week and twice of Friday.

{Ed025's Note - dead right grino, its our national dish mate along with a sunday roast, im not totally Johnny English though as i do enjoy the odd Ruby..


10.) 10 Sep 2023 09:40:41
Ed025 am a greedy **** we have 4 roasts normally a week lol but I love an Indian Thai or a chinese. But I don’t like silly little plates of food ? lol ?.


11.) 10 Sep 2023 11:38:31
Hey Ed, our national dish, Fish n Chips is Spanish, is in fact Spanish, sorry, it was Spanish Jews who introduced it to the English in the 1500's.


12.) 10 Sep 2023 18:57:55
That’s ridiculous comment Humblekop, problem is the whole league are capable of dropping 60mil on players now.


13.) 11 Sep 2023 09:12:31
Enjoying regular Rubys is about the most English trait available.


 

 

17 Jul 2023 18:40:54
I agree with some of the posters on here who say that Bajcetic is a better prospect than Lavia.

But I'm certainly not opposed to signing Lavia as I see Bajcetic as more of a CM that DM.

Would any of the Ed's know if the club's plan is for Bajcetic to play in the 'Fabinho' role for us moving forward? If he is an out and out DM then certainly someone like Llorente would make more sense.

Cheers.

Bmena-red

{Ed002's Note - The club still appear to be trying to settle on targets - clearly Lavia is an option. Only when they figure out what they do in the end will determine if Bajcetic has an opportunity or will remain on the fringes for another season. Clearly the kid is well liked.}


1.) 17 Jul 2023 20:03:26
Bah will have to carefully managed this season in regard the lads injury from the last season, with that in mind we do need a DM.


2.) 17 Jul 2023 20:25:25
Only question mark I have over Baj is that he seems to lack of bit of pace. In that sense I don’t see him as an upgrade on Fab but other than that great potential.


3.) 17 Jul 2023 21:01:28
Don’t need pace when you can skin the likes of Fernandez.


4.) 17 Jul 2023 21:33:20
Kew17, you don't need pace if you're as technically as sound as Baj is. At that point, you just need to know what what's around you, be situationally aware and let the ball do the running. Like Thiago in his pump.


5.) 17 Jul 2023 21:56:18
Oli, I only pointed out Baj had injury, nothing re pace, I think the kids going to be a big player in his future.


6.) 17 Jul 2023 22:37:52
Thanks for the reply Ed!

Glad he is well liked and I hope he gets his chance. Last season his skill set seemed like it may be more effective as one of our B2B style midfielders but I’m sure the coaches get a better look at him in training everyday and hopefully have a plan how to integrate him in.


7.) 18 Jul 2023 13:40:38
Sorry Kew17. My post was for Brummyred.


 

 

05 Jun 2023 08:57:48
What's happening with Mane Ed?

Bmena-red

{Ed002's Note - He is being sold by Bayern Munich.}


1.) 05 Jun 2023 11:33:39
Hopefully not to the Prem. But I guess that’s football.


2.) 05 Jun 2023 12:04:51
I suspect he will be heading to Italy.


3.) 05 Jun 2023 12:09:18
Why/ how did the Bayern move end so badly for all involved?


4.) 05 Jun 2023 12:24:55
I mean you only had to watch Mane in his final year at Liverpool to see that he wasn’t the player he was.

He was shocking on the left wing and had a renaissance when shoehorned in the middle for a short time. Diaz looked a far better player when he was introduced.

For once I think the club made the correct decision in allowing him to leave on his own accord and fetch a decent amount of money for him. I hope we take this stance more often in the future.

There has also always been a bit of a nasty side to Mane. He forced his way out of Southampton, had a public spat with Salah in the middle of a game and then went about his departure from Liverpool in a disrespectful way (having his agent spew nonsense right before the UCL final) . He’s a fantastic human being by the way, charitable and respectful but undoubtedly he gets caught in the moment.

I think he’s struggled to settle at Bayern and his literal fight with Sane won’t have helped matters at all. His on pitch performances also haven’t been impressive for them. He’s also on very large wages. Bayern are going through a bit of a transition period with a new manager and staff in the background so I suspect they will cut their losses and alleviate their wage bill.

Shame really.


5.) 05 Jun 2023 12:27:02
Because Mane tried to punch above his weight? Sorry couldn't resist.


6.) 05 Jun 2023 19:48:45
Great player and made the most of his ability even when his pace was diminishing. We sold at the right time when he was clearly in decline and retained some value. If he forced the move then he did us a favour because we should have been doing this with many other players, had we done just that we may not have found ourselves in the position we now are, needing defensive upgrades/ rethink and a complete midfield overhaul.


7.) 05 Jun 2023 20:21:16
Hope he gets himself a huge payday somewhere.


8.) 05 Jun 2023 21:34:19
The problem with Mane was that he slowed down the play, His talent was over 5 yards from a standing start which meant he had to kill the momentum before doing the action. He had to square a defender up before he could do anything, In the prem that's bourbon biscuits to a defending team.


9.) 06 Jun 2023 01:46:33
Off to join the Toon army according to some in the press.


 

 

20 May 2023 08:40:32
Any interest in Andrew Omobamidele Ed?

30 Aug 2023 21:17:12
I'm not against the Gravenberch signing, hoping Klopp can get the best out of him. But would someone explain to me his position/ role in the squad? My understanding was that he occupied similar positions to Jones and Elliot which makes me wonder how we get minutes for all these young midfielders.

Bmena-red

1.) 30 Aug 2023 21:27:10
Will be like a Gini type role I'd imagine.


2.) 30 Aug 2023 21:47:11
Happy if we get him. If you would have told me we would sign McAllister, Szoboszlai and Gravenberch in this window I would have took it. Not to mention a fourth in Endo.


3.) 30 Aug 2023 21:51:40
Agree Jones. The Endo transfer has grown on me a lot as I’m hoping it means the club are going to give young Bajcetic a shot at being our future holding mid. Why spend hundreds of millions when we have a top youngster already in the squad needing minutes.


4.) 30 Aug 2023 22:03:55
Yes agree. Our midfield going forward is Gravenberch, McAllister, Szoboszlai, Bacjetic, Elliot, Jones, Endo and Thiago. If we get Gravenberch that is. The average age is now considerably less and players such as Jones and Elliot have been learning for a couple of seasons now.


5.) 30 Aug 2023 22:51:10
I agree Macca, Dom, Endo, Gravenberch (with perhaps Andre in January? ) along with Baj, Harvey, Curtis and a couple more youngsters coming through has a lot healthier look to it than it did in June. Not forgetting we will have one more season with Thiago on the books.

I’d love Hincapie to be the big surprise signing on Friday - that would also be a great signing for the future.


6.) 30 Aug 2023 23:07:13
Inverted left winger I imagine.


7.) 31 Aug 2023 01:15:54
I'm glad you're not against the Gravenberch signing, Bmena-red.
We've waited long enough and we don't anyone throwing a spanner in the works now.


8.) 31 Aug 2023 11:00:34
We have potentially Andre to come in Jan as well, should he be signed. I see people being reserved on Gravenberch and frankly, I haven't seen him play enuff to judge him. But as I always say if he is who Klopp wants then, Im for it. Let's see if he joins.


 

 

20 Aug 2023 12:21:27
Could Ed's or other posters help me understand how refereeing is of such a poor standard?

Some terrible decisions been made these opening 2 weeks. Last week I posted about the Brentford penalty not being given against united, this week there was a clear handball in the United game and then Martinez clearly committed a foul in the box but no penalty given?!? I'm not even referencing the mac red card yesterday, personally I thought it was a yellow but can't have many complaints being given for a red imo.

I don't watch much football out of England, is the refereeing as poor throughout Europe? As Firmane alluded to in a previous post it's making watching the game a struggle when easy decisions aren't being given. What are we doing to improve the quality of refereeing and if we aren't doing anything, why not?

Cheers.

Bmena-red

{Ed001's Note - refereeing standards everywhere are poor, but you expect it in Italy and Spain as the big clubs pay so much money for favourable decisions *coughBarca,Juvecough*. It is defo falling because no one is allowed to question decisions made as they immediately back each other up, rather than looking at ways to improve how they officiate.}


1.) 20 Aug 2023 13:20:30
Journalists are to blame for a lot of this I would say as well Ed, they make out fans are tin foil hat conspiracy theorists for even suggesting corruption, even thought it’s been proven many times before and they know it’s true.

{Ed001's Note - journalists are a joke these days - most of them are just propaganda mouthpieces or write clickbait crap. There is no doubt in my mind that there is a problem with corruption in the game that has only grown and it clearly extends to match officials. The current Barca scandal proves it is at the highest level of the game.}


2.) 20 Aug 2023 13:47:04
Completely agree. It’s happened in other leagues and been proven, it’s happened in other sports and been proven. But for some reason we think we’re above it

South Korea in the 2002 World Cup is still one of the worst examples I’ve ever seen. The two games against Spain and Italy particularly.


3.) 20 Aug 2023 13:55:00
Ed1, do you think people like Romano are on certain agents payrolls to say and promote certain things? He was a joke during the caicedo debacle.

{Ed001's Note - he at best gets fed stuff by agents does mister after the fact. He is probably happy to put stuff out as he gets so many clicks on his bait.}


4.) 20 Aug 2023 14:58:09
It's not surprising simply because it's big money business now. Clubs went from being worth millions to billions in less than a decade. And wherever money goes it corrupts. Morals, rules, right or wrong and everything else go out the window. And the sun still rises the next day. Sadly.


5.) 20 Aug 2023 16:03:24
I do sympathise with up and coming Refs. There’s some decent lads out there officiating well. It’s when they reach the Top the corruption kicks in.


6.) 20 Aug 2023 16:42:38
The only people to listen to are the Eds here and perhaps one or two others looks Ornstein and Joyce re transfers.


7.) 20 Aug 2023 18:50:01
Game is played at such a high speed these days refs have a tough job and they are human. But how the VAR backs up poor decisions definitely more than raises an eyebrow. Arguably we have far more highly controversial decisions now w VAR than we did before its inception. We all know VAR is supposed to bring some sense into non sensical decisions etc but it's just backing up one poor decision after the next. Definitely invites the conspiracy theories and it's easy to see why. Not saying brown ones are changing hands but wouldn't be surprised in the least. It would explain a lot.


8.) 20 Aug 2023 19:44:37
The problem is even when they take their time they still cock it up.

Look at the women’s World Cup final today.

Var took ages to ask the ref to have a look at the handball and then discussed it for another few minutes. If you have to talk about something for three or four minutes and view five different angles then I personally don’t think you should overturn the refs original decision. Clearly there’s no obvious error in that subjective decision.


9.) 20 Aug 2023 19:45:44
VAR is still a person. They just have more information and get things wrong.


10.) 20 Aug 2023 22:25:41
Rigsby there are some decisions that are neither right nor wrong as they are very subjective and that’s what the ‘clear and obvious’ cop out rule was brought in for.

There are too many decisions though that are clearly and obviously wrong and VAR look at it in slow mo at 5 different angles and in freeze frame yet still come to the wrong decision. The Onana fould last week being just one glaring example.

I’m sorry but you simply can’t get that decision wrong unless it’s on purpose. That’s why I’m convinced of corruption in the game. All VAR has done is it’s given more control to the incompetent, untrustworthy officials allowing them to actively manufacture an outcome.

They are not accountable for their actions and even if they were found to be corrupt (which they undoubtably are) the FA and the Premier League would cover it up as it damages their brand.

Money has destroyed the game we love unfortunately.


11.) 20 Aug 2023 22:29:35
But it was clearly a handball against England Wassa?

Thanks for the info Ed. Such a shame for the fans that they have to endure these controversial and at times clearly corrupt decisions.

Has there been anyone speak out publicly about the corruption in the English game? Seems mad that not one high profile pundit would take the risk and mention it.

{Ed001's Note - no, the English like to believe their game is clean.}


12.) 21 Aug 2023 06:52:36
Bring in AI for VAR.

It should already be ‘learning’ from the hundreds of incidents which happen every game.

AI would be consistent and it would gradually get better rather than worse.


13.) 21 Aug 2023 10:31:31
VAR is simply infuriating - look the onfield refs will miss things, always going to happen due to the speed of the game, players obstructing view etc, it happens and its no bother

How the VAR guy though sees the exact same replays that we all see and yet somehow come to a different decision? I mean, even recent obvious ones:
- The Lindelof handball vs West Ham last season? Not even looked at
- the Rodri handball against Everton? Could have saw Everton relegated and cost us a title
- The MacAllister challenge? Very, very harsh.
- The Chelsea handball in our opening game?
- The Onana challenge that wiped out 2 Wolves players?
- The penalty City got for handball against Wolves last season? I mean come on, the ball hit his ribs and his hands were clearly outstretched upwards above his head at the time - every replay showed that yet still a penalty was given?
- The penalty, sending off, lack of penalty given to Arsenal in the City game last season - that match was a real collection of wtf moments from the ref and VAR if i'm honest

And that's just matches that I have personally watched last season and this season so far - a small collection but if you speak to any fan (well apart really from City or Utd fans lol, though Utd ones do still bemoan decisions) you can see there are simply countless of these wtf moments in so many matches

And that is the thing most honest fans struggle to comprehend. Is it corruption and bribes involved or are the VAR officials really this mind-blowing idiotic they do not see what every fan and pundit alike sees? Why have officials at the PGMOL not dealt with such incompetence? I mean they give a club an apology, stand down the officials a week and that's it so honestly how have they not devised some sort of plan for dealing with this?

I mean, is it at all possible that they see no issues with VAR?
Seems improbable doesn't it?
Is corruption afoot and they are all simply 'in on it'? I really hope not.
Honestly though, there is clearly a problem so devise a solution and manage the problem - i mean VAR really shouldn't be this difficult should it?

VAR should be a great aid to the onfield refs - the ref misses something or gets something wrong and the VAR official should simply direct him to look at it again - simples
Offsides - don't even need lines, its 'clear and obvious' - glance at a still of it, if he's off he's off. If it's too close to tell then you do not need minute lines to tell you as it's not 'clear and obvious' then if you're doing that - you give the benefit of the doubt to the attacker - again, simples and about 30 secs to do that
Penalties - again 30 secs max - is it a handball or a foul - 30 secs of looking at stills should make that clear. If not then it's not 'clear or obvious' so VAR stays out and leaves it to the onfield decision

Honestly, the real frustrating thing for fans is that VAR is actually a very useful tool, it's use currently is just insane as the rules seem to be rewritten each week.


 

 

14 Aug 2023 22:09:15
New season but same old VAR. That penalty decision at the end of the United game was one of the worst I've seen. Scandalous that the VAR don't intervene there.

Bmena-red

1.) 14 Aug 2023 22:19:58
Crazy decision that.

I’ve heard lots of pundits have Wolves to go down this season but they were by far the better team tonight.


2.) 14 Aug 2023 22:28:25
Just saw that. The more you watch football the more it looks like something dodgy is going on.

So what that ref and VAR are saying is that you can just jump at someone in the box and clatter them without getting anywhere near the ball? I wonder whether they would’ve given a free kick if it was the defender jumping at the keeper? Of course they would.

Incompetent at best, but I’m pretty sure it’s corruption. Nobody can get that decision wrong unless it’s on purpose.


3.) 14 Aug 2023 22:33:06
I just don’t understand football anymore guys. Decisions like that just make me sad.

I mean that was a foul. All day and every day. He’s nowhere near the ball and a mile late.

So what wasn’t clear and obvious?


4.) 14 Aug 2023 22:38:19
If that’s the other way round, and a goal was scored, they’d rule it out. He gets nowhere near the ball and cleans the player out, it’s dangerous and should be a penalty.


5.) 14 Aug 2023 22:38:28
Yep decisions like that do leave you a bit disillusioned even as a neutral. Does make me slightly more annoyed that of course it went United’s way but even if it was against us that is a stone wall penalty.

Whoever was on VAR should face disciplinary not that is does much good after 3 points lost. The cheek then to book the Wolves manager is outrageous. What’s worse is that VAR watched the replay about 10 times.


6.) 14 Aug 2023 22:42:53
They didn’t intervene because it wasn’t ‘ clear and obvious’, now it’s clearly a foul and obviously the refs are incompetent so where’s the issue? Refs as usual allowed hide behind their decisions! You know 100% if that was Utd trailing it would have been overturned all day long, decisions like this are stacked against the smaller clubs it’s robbery in plain sight!


7.) 14 Aug 2023 22:44:52
It beggers belief that decision. They really need to explain that one!


8.) 14 Aug 2023 23:18:28
The ball was gone so I reckon that's why they left it alone. Wolves guy headed the ball and then Onana clattered into the other guy, basically took him out but off the ball or after the ball so Onana's foul didn't stop a chance so that's why I reckon they didn't overturn it.


9.) 14 Aug 2023 23:43:49
Just watched Dermot in the post-match. says he thinks it's a pen, they (guys in studio) think it's a pen, but that doesn't mean the decision was a howler.

I don't quite understand how they make this so difficult.


10.) 15 Aug 2023 00:38:27
No way! That was definitely a pen. Wolves were so unlucky, so many shots etc I think they played well. Let’s wait and see what gets said about the penalty not being given. (Probably nothing! )


11.) 15 Aug 2023 01:23:56
Sean Ireland, since when did stopping a chance constitute a penalty? If you are facing away from goal and get fouled in the box it's a penalty. What do you define as a chance?


12.) 15 Aug 2023 06:37:25
The official on VAR last night, Salisbury I believe, was the same guy on VAR that didn't give Brighton a penalty against Spurs in April - and was subsequently demoted.

THE SAME PERSON!

Make a mistake once, ok, but the same mistake again c'mon peeps, convince me that there is no corruption in football.


13.) 15 Aug 2023 07:47:35
Wolves not getting a clear pen at old Trafford at the end of the game… shocker. Var didn’t intervene - shocker. Man U won because of it - shocker. Clearly the var man was a Utd fan no doubt.


14.) 15 Aug 2023 07:49:45
That was a pen all day, everyday. How that wasn’t given, is beyond me. Oman’s missed the ball completed and punched the Wolves player right in the face. Utd as usual, got away with one with VAR, arguably just as Chelsea did with the Jackson handball incident at the Shed.

VAR is getting worse but that we already knew. Seven Hag has dient over 400m and counting in one year, and is still getting his arse handed to him by the tactical guru named Gary O’Neil. Great time to be a Utd fan.


15.) 15 Aug 2023 08:25:01
@Rigsby, if it had been before the ball was headed away then I think that would have been deemed as stopping a chance and given. The ball was already headed away so it's more like the Spurs keeper who took out Schade after he shot wide and that also wasn't given. Before the shot/ header would be having a chance to score, after you have already missed isn't - that's what I mean and that's why I didn't think they gave it.


16.) 15 Aug 2023 08:35:20
The wolves player gets the ball then gets cleaned out afterwards…. it would 100% be a foul if it happened in the middle of the pitch, and so should be 100% be a foul in the box. The keeper has no more right to clatter into people after the ball has gone than anyone else.


17.) 15 Aug 2023 09:30:38
So we are now saying that tackling a player after the ball has gone is ok? Whoops, sorry I broke your leg there mate but you had passed the ball after all.


18.) 15 Aug 2023 09:44:01
Spot on, SGred. If the keeper misses the ball completely and punches the player then, is is as good as an outfield player missing the ball completely, gets the man and a foul is awarded. In this case, a foul is awarded in the box when Onana misses the ball and clatters into the player’s head hence, penalty. It’s that simple.


19.) 15 Aug 2023 10:56:50
As blatant a penalty as you will ever see yet not given - I would seriously love if we make the guy in charge of VAR come out and explain why he thought it wasn't when it looked nailed on to every other person watching the same replays

They have a big thing out now about managers and player reactions and attitudes towards officials - wouldn't the logical step be to fix the issues that are causing these reactions?

I mean every weekend last season there was at least one incident where the decision given could only be rated using a wtf scale - surely sorting the idiotic decisions would reduce the reactions from players and staff?


20.) 15 Aug 2023 11:38:11
Bill, it is arrogance and incompetence all rolled in one. These people possess a level of incompetence that is only matched by their level of arrogance. I mean, look at the way they carry themselves on the pitch as if they are the world's gift to football.

Well I've slept on it but I'm still feeling as deflated as I was last night. United fans in my work here not helping matters.

Strangely we played a fantastic first half, Salah had a huge chance and at one point Bajcetic could have played in Darwin but chose the wrong pass. We played with real intensity and created plenty which was great to see. How we didn't score from the goal line scramble I don't know.

Hendo was massively at fault for their first goal and it just unravelled from there. Heads dropped when it went 3-2, the press vanished and they tore us apart. But even then a big penalty shout on Darwin, a deflected goal Allison couldn't have done anything with. these small moments cost us massively.

Bajcetic was guilty of trying a bit too much at times and was caught out badly, but my god that lad is going to be a player. Chin up lads we need a big summer but we'll be back.

We've been giving it to United fans for years. Let them have their moments.

That's the worst bit about last night for me, I don't even think Madrid played that well. They had a mad 15 minute spell started by their 3rd goal which was the equivalent of a gut punch in boxing, completley took the stuffing out of us and they took the tie away from us. A brutal, devasting spell, but it is what Madrid are capable of.

I saw a stat that said they had 9 shots yesterday and scored 5. Sometimes it just goes against you and you have to raise your heads and go again.

We have done it often enough to other teams and this is an occasion where it has happened to us. Second time in this years CL campaign.

Last night showed how crucial getting top in the groups is and stems back to that humbling in Napoli right back on GW1.

I saw that stat as well WY. Crazy that.

As a fan of any club you’ve got to take the rough with the smooth and as LFC fans we can be grateful that Klopp has provided us with success that 95% of other clubs fans in the country may never see in their lifetime.

It took 30 years for us to win a league title again so we should know how hard or long a journey to try and get back to the top can be, so there’s every chance we might not come back from this in our lifetimes as there is chance we will to challenge at the very top.

Thankfully my Sky Sports and BT sports contract is up next month and I’m going to join the streaming brigade instead of throwing money down the toilet to support lots of greedy b##yards in football.

Just downloaded my 3 tickets for the Wolves game where I’ll be taking my sons best mate to his first ever Liverpool game and I just hope that the players decide to put the bare minimum of effort in to make the journey and cost worthwhile.


5.) 22 Feb 2023 11:58:23
I think Real are a good experienced team and know how to win games. I wouldn't say they are anything special by any means. This season we have made teams look better than what they are by the poor performances (versus our standards of last season) .


6.) 22 Feb 2023 12:21:29
JK you've hit the nail on the head their mate, whatever happens moving forward I consider myself lucky to witness what we have.

I would love us to be dominating year in year out but we have seen them become PL champions with a ridiculous record that C.V. interrupted Seen us not lose at home for like 5 years, become European and world Champions and all the other magic dust sprinkled in between.

I have and I am sure many others have memories that will last a life time, and there are a huge amount of fans across the board that would love the few years we have had.

Yes, this year has been rough, but all in all I can't really complain.

And JK, regardless of the result I hope they have a cracking day!

The bad times make the good times better.


9.) 22 Feb 2023 16:18:03
Spot on, WY and Rigsby. I have been blessed to be on this immense journey with this team. All the other stuff is just white noise and part of the process of life in general. Cannot enjoy the good times without going thru the bad times.

Hi Ed,

Have you started watching the matches live again? Because something seems to have changed over the last few weeks!

Has Klopp pushed lijnders to the side and taken more control over things? Our upturn in form would suggest this is the case, or could it be as simple as the legs of Bajcetic making us better in comparison to the Elliot/ Thiago in midfield?

Cheers bud!

Bmena-red

{Ed001's Note - no, quite the opposite, I nodded off while waiting for the derby to start and so last night I just went to sleep. Which is fine as they are difficult to watch live here at the moment.

Watching them afterwards, it just looks like they are reverting back more to the way we used to play. But for me the biggest change is the forwards look to be building an understanding.}


1.) 19 Feb 2023 09:48:27
Any word on Darwin?

Really don't need him getting injured now !


2.) 19 Feb 2023 10:01:41
The forward line definitely looks a lot more coherent and dangerous as a result. Confidence is returning.
I really like Gakpo, he has very good first control and is more suited to that central position.
The 3 starting forwards all bring something slightly different to the table, which is a bonus.
Nunez out on the left works better also.
With the injured players to return soon, the squad can take shape.
The bench is gradually looking stronger, I think Elliott and Carvalho belong there for the time being.
And Milner is solid gold as Klopp used him yesterday, just keep giving the man a rolling contract as far as I'm concerned.
Suddenly things appear brighter and, with the right Summer additions, we will be good to go again.


3.) 19 Feb 2023 10:44:11
According to quite a few on here Nunez and Gakpo were mistakes that should never have been bought and Milner is too old, crap and should never be seen in a Liverpool shirt again.
Klopp trolling the hoopleheads on a consistent basis.


4.) 19 Feb 2023 12:21:14
Where is the post that says we shouldn’t have bought Nunez? I haven’t seen one.


5.) 19 Feb 2023 12:52:26
Can you put up them posts? I've seen nothing but positivity towards Nunez from posters.


6.) 19 Feb 2023 13:25:42
Is that selective memory?
Blissful ignorance?
Been living in a cave or off grid since we signed him?
There's been plenty posted about Nunez's apparent lack of ability, suitability for us and his apparent similarity to a certain Andy Carroll.
Pretending it didn't happen doesn't make it so.
If you want to see those posts then go look for yourself. You won't have to look too far, but then I suspect you already know that.


7.) 19 Feb 2023 13:47:48
Cheers for the reply Ed!

Tuesday night make sure you’re falling asleep around 8pm uk time please!

{Ed001's Note - yes boss!}


8.) 19 Feb 2023 15:37:05
You're lying Flash. I'll go through your comment partially because your lies really aren't worth my time. "According to quite a few" Show me the "quite the fews" comments? I'll wait.


9.) 19 Feb 2023 16:26:12
Wow. Miaow lads.


10.) 19 Feb 2023 17:15:08
Yarmo, keep on waiting. But Flash is not lying. Unless you're here everyday (which you're obviously not, otherwise you'd know not to look a fool) you would have read the Nunez references as the new "Andy Carroll" and the ones for Gakpo as "Kakpoo". Spare us the sissy fits.


11.) 19 Feb 2023 18:38:39
Definitely the forward like for me. Only a handful of games together but you can the chemistry building including how they help the midfield by leading our press. Suddenly we’re not talking about our midfield as much anymore.


12.) 19 Feb 2023 22:56:25
Faith, we're not talking about the midfield so much simply because people are tired of the moaning (I think) and they realize nothing can be done about it now that the window is well closed. But I have to admit our forward line is playing better, we have VVD back in defense, and Bajcetic is providing solutions to some of the midfield problems. Combination of problems that caused us to lose form and play poorly. Combination of factors that are making us play better.

But we do need those midfielders, LOL. ?.

Cheers folks! Doesn’t seem that any of our targets will become available in January. I don’t acctually agree that we need to sign anyone Mark. I would have liked some reinforcements at LB but unless we plan to sell Tsimi in the summer it probably wouldn’t make much sense.

Have you had a chance to watch Leverkusen this season at all Ed? And if so do you rate Alonso as a coach?

Haven’t watched them at all but certainly seems to be doing well.

Bmena-red

{Ed002's Note - Alonso is doing really well this season and he is on the list of options for Real Madrid.}

I haven’t seen anything of Raphinha since joining barce but the lad was exceptional at Leeds.

Salah is irreplaceable no doubt but Raphinha woukd be an excellent addition when does inevitably leave.

Fitness levels must be insane. Was absolutely brilliant today.

Makes it all the sweeter that Caicedo was in opposite team, seems like he is another of the Rodri, casemiro types who commits fouls every other play and escapes a booking.

He played with Bayern and I think won plenty with them so I would assume he has an affinity with them as well as us.

I hope he chooses us but I wouldn't hold it against him to go to Bayern.

Going to be an unpopular opinion here.

Jota's all round game I thought was poor, I find him so frustrating in build up play and gets simple passes wrong a lot of the time.

He showed what he's good at though with two fantastic goals I just find him very frustrating.

Not that he is ever going to sign for us I have to ask… is Mbappe really worth that money? Ludicrous money and I don’t know any player is worth that.

He’s the new poster boy of the sport and I accept you are buying his ‘brand’ as much as you are the player. But as players go we could have someone just as effective for a quarter of the price. Just my opinion.
