Hearing we've sold Allan Rodrigues de Souza to Atletico Mineiro for a fee of around £3.2million? Work permit being the stumbling block?

Drogie

1.) 11 Jan 2020 00:37:37
Yes you probably read that in the Liverpool Echo where they said he had been sold for £3.2 million because there were work permit issues.

Hearing the club will not submit new plans for the Anfield Road end expansion until 2020, with a capacity of only 60,000 ( an additional 6,000 seats )

Yes there are restrictions with infrastructure and the housing around the ground, I still feel this is really disappointing.

We have a season ticket waiting list of over 25,000 and each Match day I always see dozens of fans waiting at the ticket office ( behind the kop ) only to be told games are a sell out.

We are one of the biggest clubs in the world but can't facilitate demand.

Drogie

1.) 09 Oct 2019 18:22:48
Well it sounds like the 60,000 capacity is there for a reason and you are just looking for something to complain about. Unless you think the club should build a bigger ground somewhere else?

{Ed002's Note - This is old news and all options are being considered.}


2.) 09 Oct 2019 19:14:27
Complain? Are you for real?

I have a season ticket pal, I just feel sorry for all of you on here that can’t get tickets.


3.) 09 Oct 2019 19:25:04
Stadium size is not the only way to show you're a world class team. Don't forget that there's a human and environmental cost to these expansions as have been previously explained. So, unless you're looking for a brand new, shiny Maracana-sized stadium to underline our status, you should just wait to see what happens.

{Ed047's Note - believe it or not Arsenal have over 60,000 on the waiting list for a season ticket.


4.) 09 Oct 2019 19:44:03
I didn’t say it was, it was about being able to eat into the season ticket waiting list.


5.) 09 Oct 2019 20:06:31
ed002 the club has not said anything new have they after they said they was letting the old planning permission to run out. What was for over 4000 can't see them spending the extra money in new plans to add under 2000 seats. As for the infrastructure is there not talks ongoing about some old rail stations being reopened nearer the ground.

{Ed002's Note - There was an interview with The AP where it was explained that all options are open.}


6.) 10 Oct 2019 00:15:59

Sorry. I am in the states. Can you explain what those options are please?

Ed 02
Sorry. I am in the states. Can you explain what those options are please?

{Ed002's Note - The owners have made it clear that any and all options are available for consideration. They have not renewed the planning permission because it made no financial sense - it took them a long tie to figure that out.}


8.) 10 Oct 2019 17:14:36
Would that include a new stadium ed02?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, all options.}


9.) 10 Oct 2019 19:31:15
My understanding is it doesn't include a new stadium. The main issue being considered is redeveloping the Anfield Road end and the Kenny Daglish stand. This will take the capacity to 70,000. The Dalish stand would be very much like the main stand in size.


10.) 10 Oct 2019 20:14:35
Would it be fair to say the redevelopment of the main stand, was a mistake and going ahead with plans to build a new stadium away from Anfield, would have made better financial sense, in the long term?

Thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - No. The cost of building a new stadium would be very significant - Spurs have spent something close to £1B and have been plunged in to debt. The income from an extra 6,000 to 10,000 season tickets is zip in the big scheme of things.}


11.) 11 Oct 2019 12:55:48
don't think most fans would want a new stadium but the redevelopment of Anfield road end and Sir Kenny Dalglish stand would be great. The big issue there would be the houses behind the SKD stand, the club would need to probably buy 3 full streets. That will come with a lot of trouble with people not wanting to sell up and then it will come to compulsory purchase order what all ways leaves a bitter taste. I would expect the club to win that fight though.

{Ed002's Note - The club cannot have a compulsory purchase order and already know what the limitations are at Anfield. The club are already less than popular with the locals and are not doing what was planned as it makes zero sense financially - as has been explained year in year out.}


12.) 11 Oct 2019 14:18:35
ED002 did they not get one for the main stand . And if they was to do the skd stand there is no way that could not be done without at least 3 streets being knocked down. I don’t know why they could not to get compulsory purchase order.

{Ed002's Note - That is not what the existing planning permission states. Liverpool cannot get a CPO - that would need to be the local authorities.}


13.) 11 Oct 2019 19:48:52
The redevelopment of the ground has been completed so far as very much part of a wider community regeneration plan, with the City Council as a key enabler and partner. I’d expect the Anfield Road End to get rebuilt, with additional corporate facilities probably, taking the capacity to somewhere between 60 - 65,000.
After that, any further development becomes difficult and, ironically, a regenerated community may be the very thing that prevents any further ground expansion.


14.) 11 Oct 2019 16:54:50
yes I know the local authorities have to get it ed but if they put in planning for the SKD stand and it got granted, that is the only way they would get all the houses, And then I do believe it would go that way not that I like CPO. have seen people near me have there house taken from them with CPO'S I think if they are used the owners should get more than the value of the house rather than less. And with the money in clubs now with what they pay players for one weeks wages over paying for the house near by would be go good way to go about it. I would guess the house at the back of the ground would be about the £100k mark giving an extra 25% would not be a great deal to the clubs but I would mean a lot to the home owners ed. I think in the 4 streets there is about 80 houses so about £8m for all the house an extra £2m on top with what they are paying to get the ground up to 70k with what an 70k stadium would cost to build.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry I am losing track - you say you know it would be the authorities but previously said it would be the club. Nobody has suggested three roads will go. The club has already pissed off and lied about their involvement with the local residents. The club suffers from being arrogant, uncaring and showing no respect to other clubs or individuals - perhaps they will look to force more people from their homes.}


15.) 11 Oct 2019 22:33:51
sorry ed about the 3 roads I meant 4 rows of house for it to have the same height as the main stand would need that for light not to be an issue. And as for the CPO the club would need the planning from local authorities and wants they have that if they get it then it will end up going the CPO route what the club will know will probably have to go that way to get all the houses need for the build. But as most of the time nowadays ed its the money that talks. Like I said before ed if the club wants that stand doing I do think paying over the odds for the houses would be the best way for the club to deal with the issue not that I have heard of any talk of the Sir Kenny Dalglish stand being done I was just pointing out that I see the being a bit off if it ever happens.

{Ed002's Note - You seem to have little or no understanding of the plans that exist nor how the locals are already miffed with the club. You think Liverpool could bribe the council to get CPOs to make more locals homeless then you should be sharing those with the Echo and local community. Don’t worry, they are inner city folks who have little money and could probably be forced out by the club.}


16.) 11 Oct 2019 22:50:42
am not saying anything about the club Bribing the council am just saying that the normal folk normally get the S*** end off the stick. And as I understand it now there is no plans as they ran out. and it was the local authorities that said they was going to use CPO to get the last of the houses for the main stand.


17.) 14 Oct 2019 12:02:10
Am I right in thinking that any stadium with a capacity over 60,000 needs the correct infrastructure, i.e. a train line which is situated close to the ground. Getting to Anfield is not the easiest as its right in the middle of terraced streets. Even with the clearing of houses by the main stand, its still a nightmare to get in and out of. They have buses from the city centre taking fans. An extra 6,000 seats would add some income, but compared with the cost its not worth it? When the main stand was re developed, they change the entire corporate structure, which brings in far more money, as well as redevelopment of the area around the ground.


18.) 14 Oct 2019 12:22:02
Kirkdale station is pretty close.


19.) 27 Oct 2019 04:50:54
I get off at sand hills still a fair walk that.


 

 

16 Sep 2019 19:36:17
Robbo has knock and didn't train today.

If there's any doubts whatsoever over his fitness I'd rather not see him feature tomorrow night

Chelsea away is much more important imo.

Drogie

1.) 17 Sep 2019 09:34:50
I think the days we put short term gain over long term goals a gone drogie or I hope so any way mate.


2.) 17 Sep 2019 15:40:29
I'd happily take a 3-0 loss and everyone leaving Naples fit and healthy in exchange for guaranteed 3 points this weekend.

We have bigger fish to fry this season than the Champions League.


3.) 17 Sep 2019 15:52:41
Champions League is our best bet for silverwhere. Klopp don't take league cup and FA cup to serious and no chance to win the league.


4.) 17 Sep 2019 16:04:43
I don't know why we need a loss tonight I would love a win tonight sets up the champions league great for us qualify from the group as soon as possible makes resting players later on easier. But is still want a win sunday think its a massive week for us could make getting through the groups stages a lot less stressful not like last season when it went to the end.


5.) 17 Sep 2019 17:52:11
We need to win to keep momentum grino but I just think if robbo has a niggle not worth risking him when a rest now could stop a potential stint on the sidelines.


6.) 17 Sep 2019 18:52:50
That's negative even for Walter, 2 of cities 3 CBs are injured and even with their massive squad depth you would think that would be a tough situation to come through without dropping points. I think we have every chance this season.


7.) 18 Sep 2019 09:31:05
Den82 agreed they have Thier problems but they will be just behind or just in front by January. Once January comes they will buy who they need to win the league.


8.) 19 Sep 2019 03:07:41
I hope they are in front so we can chase them down the 4 times we have been in front at Xmas hasn't exactly been great for us at the end of the season let's try reeling them in might be more successful that way for us to be at the top at Xmas and not win the league once is painful seeing that stat every year just with another year added every time it happens I don't know if I can take another season where we are top at Xmas and not win the league in May.

Evening Ed001.

First of all, what a result today!

Away from the match, just want to pick up on the discussion regarding Clyne. You were spot on regarding him not being injured. Mate of mine who I sit next to at the match, knows a bloke who works with the phsyio team. He was saying that Clyne was caught smoking marijuana and partying whilst away in Ghana and the club actually spoke to the FA regarding this and the only reason he played against United was because of the lack of cover at RB.

He was also saying how worried the club was regarding Brewster's injury, especially when the leg was infected, hampering his comeback.

Brewster is very very highly rated at the club and have said that before his injury, was ahead of Owen ( at the same age ) in terms of terms of ability.

Good to see him back and scoring with the 23's along with the Ox and Gomez. I think the club will resist bringing them back early and wait until next season.

Drogie

1.) 14 Apr 2019 21:29:46
If Brewster is ahead of Owen ability wise at that age i'll be a very very happy man because in todays market that's a £150 million player.


2.) 14 Apr 2019 21:34:15
Ahh he was stoned the whole time, explains his performances over the last few years.


3.) 14 Apr 2019 22:27:05
Second hand tittle tattle Drogie, which may or may not be right.
You shouldn’t have posted that imo.


4.) 14 Apr 2019 23:23:00
Second hand title tattle? And what make you so sure mate?


5.) 14 Apr 2019 23:51:58
It's a rumour site. so why not post a rumour?


6.) 15 Apr 2019 00:56:26
I know it's a rumour page but I'm a relative of Clyne please don't slander his name by bringing drugs into it he injured his back playing how shall I say extra curricular activities lol 1000% fact but don't drag he's name through dirt he loves the club and the badge he played for just know that

Cheers
Guys.


7.) 15 Apr 2019 00:58:36
Surely everything is second hand here, everyone’s heard it from someone.


8.) 15 Apr 2019 01:48:40
Drogie - are you tslking about the period of his (Clyne) so called back injury?

If so I heard the same thing at the time. In fact I remember a rumor of that kind was flying around on social media, but never paid much attention to it.


9.) 15 Apr 2019 06:42:40
You probably shouldn’t post something that could destroy a man’s career unless you have actual proof.

{Ed001's Note - it wouldn't destroy his career. It is not seen as career-defining, let alone destroying. Numerous players each season get caught with marijuana in their systems. It was not marijuana that caused Clyne to be dropped, it was his lifestyle. The guy may claim to care about Liverpool or football in general, but the only thing he gives a toss about is living the high life.}


10.) 15 Apr 2019 07:40:20
Those of you that read my posts will know that I never post a rumour, in fact it’s probbly my first!

I was given the info by a good friend of mine that I sit next to at the match, I’m not one for spreading cr*p.

Sorry if I’ve offended anyone, but the club are finished with Clyne.


11.) 15 Apr 2019 19:22:28
Ed01 already addressed the Clyne issue months when many moaned as to why he was not being picked. Ed01 said at the time that he was "not living the lifestyle of a professional footballer" and if anything the OP posted is true then that was what Ed01 may have been referring to.

IMO and regardless of his alleged lifestyle, he is light years behind Trent, Milner and even Hendo at RB and for me, Klopp did the right thing by getting shot of him cos he was no good enuff. Now if you add his "lifestyle" to the equation then it was a no-brainer.

{Ed001's Note - I have already posted in this thread that it was not about a drugs test. It was his party lifestyle. He acts like one of those spoilt rich kids who have too much money and never had to earn it as they were born with a silver spoon in their mouths. Klopp wants professionals who train hard and not turn up to training after snatching 20 minutes kip following a night out partying.}


12.) 16 Apr 2019 12:42:38
With you all the way on that one, Ed. Regardless of his issues (of which there are many, clearly) he is a dreadful player and I'm thankful he is no longer here and we will get rid come this summer.

{Ed001's Note - the sad thing is that he was a dreadful player because of his own attitude. He had the ability to be more than good enough.}


13.) 17 Apr 2019 23:25:06
Clyne will always be an important footnote in Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnolds careers.


 

 

02 Mar 2019 22:35:09
Echo is reporting the Ox is expected to feature for the under-23s over the coming week.

Drogie

1.) 03 Mar 2019 00:01:28
yes, read that, great news, and he is really liked by all the staff, players and fans, so its a huge lift,
I have a good feeling about this return from injury,
he is really good for the club .


2.) 03 Mar 2019 04:19:05
Could be extremely helpful to inject some energy into midfield as we go into the final run-in.


3.) 03 Mar 2019 05:56:46
He’s built like a horse that lad.


4.) 03 Mar 2019 11:22:57
I think it's important we don't place too many expectations on him for this season at least. Coming back from a horrible injury often has many set backs. I would expect him to suffer little niggles and strains a lot as he's trying to get back to full fitness.

Next season I'm sure he will be back to his best.


5.) 03 Mar 2019 14:37:50
Surely if you’re gunna say that, he’s built like an ox?


6.) 04 Mar 2019 07:58:45
He’d better be careful then. another leg injury and they might shoot him.

{Ed025's Note - nice one marshy..


7.) 04 Mar 2019 16:14:46
If anyone in the team were built like a horse shouldn't it be Mane?

{Ed025's Note - love it 67..

11 Jul 2020 19:30:17
I'm slightly surprised at the negative comments tonight.

I though there were a couple of positives in both Jones and Williams, thought both played really well.

If it wasn't for Pope, who I thought had an outstanding game, we'd have been out of sight in the first half

How that clown in the Everton goal is still England's number 1 is beyond me.

Drogie

1.) 11 Jul 2020 21:33:29
Our first dropped points at home in about 18 months in a game we absolutely dominated and the whole world falls in. People seem to be forgetting we are champions for the first time in 30 years and instead just want something to complain about.


2.) 11 Jul 2020 21:42:30
Drgie, negativity is what certain people do? If you were to ask them why they are being so negative after a very good performance? they prolly would not be able to give you a logical answer> Go figure.

As for the game itself, I don't think Pope is the reason we drew cos he did not make any save that was nowhere near him. The one shot or chance that was nowhere near him was Robbo's header and Pope had no chance.

All the other chances were fluffed and we should have scored 4 goals easily had we not been poor in front of goal and that kept Burnley in the game and we all know that if you let a team hang around instead of putting them away, you will get done and that is what happened.


3.) 11 Jul 2020 21:53:01
My post was not solely about today, he’s been a Liverpool player now for 2 years and I can not remember him putting together 5 consecutive good performances?

Everyone saying he needs time to improve, how long are we supposed to hang on waiting for him to turn into this amazing player you all think he is going to be? Are we supposed to just let his contract run down to where we can’t cash in on him?

I’m my opinion he is never going to be good enough, he’s not strong enough, not technical enough and he simply doesn’t try hard enough!


4.) 11 Jul 2020 22:04:23
I love how a home draw when the league is already well in the bag for the first time in 30 years is treated like a 3 nil drubbing at home. Such is our standard now. long may it continue. Come to Anfield and be grateful for a point LOL.


5.) 11 Jul 2020 22:10:13
Think you have to give credit to Burnley as they knew the best chance they had was set pieces and they certainly caused plenty of problems from them today. We should of had the game wrapped up by half time but a combination of poor finishing and inspired goal keeping kept them in it. We have had plenty of games like this this season but we found a way to win. Today it wasn’t meant to be. Credit to Burnley and we move on.


 

 

10 Jul 2020 20:15:20
Evening ed002.
Hope all is well.

There's rumours that ManCity will be completely exonerated by CAS over the UEFA allegations, obviously nothing confirmed yet until Monday.

Not directly related to liverpool but it'll send out the wrong messages if it's the case.

Heard anything?

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure why you think this sends out the wrong message. There is no acceptable evidence that any case should have been made against Manchester City. They should never have been subject to any punishment on the evidence presented.

I assume that if The FA lose there appeal and Liverpool suffer the same charges as Chelsea you will be accepting a one year transfer ban for Liverpool in your fight for justice?}


1.) 10 Jul 2020 20:26:56
The case against them is based entirely on information that was illegally obtained, right?

Hadn't a hope of being upheld by CAS.

{Ed002's Note - Illegally obtained, incomplete and mis-interpreted.}


2.) 10 Jul 2020 20:27:29
We’ve been on a transfer ban since signing Alisson Becker.


3.) 10 Jul 2020 20:27:42
The world and its mother knows exactly what city are at, other clubs who build the right and years of CL qualification can't grow revenue that quick. They can't even fill their stadium and we're suppose to believe they're revenues have grown that quick and sponsors are willing to pay out that money. Lance Armstrong fc,

{Ed002's Note - Extreme ignorance and embarassing posts. You are simply looking stupid.}


4.) 10 Jul 2020 20:32:44
Ed002 - apologies, I read the wrong reply.

{Ed002's Note - You don't need to apologise Drogie. You are a good poster and don't stop, but the Liverpool supporters seem to struggle with the subject - which needs to be understood to be comment worthy. There is a level of paranoia which doesn't go away.}


5.) 10 Jul 2020 21:13:54
How much is City’s annual shirt sponsorship by Etihad worth Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - They don’t have a simple shirt deal - they have a larger deal that includes stadium naming rights. This is getting more and more embarrassing as you try and find something to hang the irrational paranoia on.}


6.) 10 Jul 2020 21:17:11
Either way one side is going to suffer here.

If evidence is found to be Illegally obtained, incomplete and mis-interpreted and that is what Uefa have built a case around questions have to be asked of Uefa.

{Ed002's Note - This is from the past and questions were asked.}


7.) 10 Jul 2020 21:21:25
Why are people arsed with what’s going on in other clubs? If you’re so bothered go to their page.


8.) 10 Jul 2020 21:57:39
Because it’s a joke Marshy. A national airline sign a ten year sponsorship deal just after the ruling Prince takes them over. A national airline that has run up billions of dollars of losses over the last few years. And that’s before any C.V. impact this year. Liverpool can’t stump up £100 for a pack of duty free ciggies whilst City are getting bankrolled by a loss-making national airline? Right.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool do very well from sponsorship. Manchester City handle FFP within the rules, but Liverpool have a different paradigm to managing their finances. This constant chip on the shoulder, particularly from a club performing so well, is truly, truly embarrassing. 2018/19 the Emirates Group made profits of more than $600M. This spewed hate toward everything not Liverpool continues to make people like you loom stupid and embarrassing.}


9.) 10 Jul 2020 22:30:01
Extreme ignorance? Massive sponsorship deals from companies with direct connections to the owners, 10 year shirt sponsor from a group who accuired over 3bn in losses in 2016/ 17. But not hi G to see here, father Ted school of commerce that is.

{Ed001's Note - you really have no idea what you are talking about. Clueless and embarrassing when people just get on bitter ignorant rants about things way over their head. Companies with direct connections to the City owners also sponsor Arsenal and other Premier League teams. Just stop before you completely embarrass yourself. None of what you said is relevant to the court case, which you clearly do not understand either.}


10.) 10 Jul 2020 22:41:22
Thanks Ed for the reply. I am glad questions where asked, it's ridiculous Uefa can create such a scene on something that won't hold up in court.

Do you envisage any scenario where the fact City will get exonerated will effect Uefa long term?

{Ed002's Note - There are other issues that need to be addressed.}


11.) 10 Jul 2020 22:39:31
Ed2, have you ever thought about doing any articles? especially about the financial side of things in football?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what you mean. Discussing finances on a forum is difficult mainly due to reconnections (that Manchester City are cheating, that Mr A funds Chelsea beyond the rues etc., etc..) Liverpool are in a great place right now and have little or no reason to complain. There will be a couple of tweaks this summer, but perhaps nothing show stopping. Looking forward Klopp should be looking at a three year deal to completely refresh the side and then walk away and leave the “heritage” to someone else. That has to be the potentially available peak that can be achieved. The future set up with 22 or 23 year old players.}


12.) 10 Jul 2020 22:57:03
There is a difference between a lack of proof and innocence. I'm not going to pretend I know what is going on at city and with their finances.

But I don't think Liverpool fans should be the ones complaining. If I were a Brentford fan perhaps I'd feel a bit miffed.

Everyone knows o. J. Simpson is innocent right.

{Ed002's Note - Well the Brentford fans have said nothing and the Liverpool fans are whining like little bitches as ever.}


13.) 10 Jul 2020 23:03:43
I wasn’t aware that Etihad and Emirates had merged Ed?
Or are you saying that City’s co-sponsors make up for the enormous losses made by the lead sponsor?

{Ed001's Note - they haven't quite merged but they are in a partnership along with a couple of other local airlines. All are very closely connected. It is after all one family that rules both Dubai and Abu Dhabi.}


14.) 10 Jul 2020 23:04:01
Why do we care? If anything it’s a good thing as if City are exonerated there’s less chance Utd will get in the CL next season 😉.


15.) 11 Jul 2020 00:44:04
Reality is that no one actually knows. The source of the story is Ian Cheeseman, who is a die hard City fan in the same way that Duncan Castles is a die hard United fan, so I’d take it all with a massive pinch of salt.


16.) 10 Jul 2020 23:44:14
Dare I ask why UEFA even tried the ban with flawed evidence?

Appreciate if you don't want to answer for fear of attracting nitwits.

{Ed002's Note - It really is not something for the Liverpool page.}


17.) 11 Jul 2020 00:44:04

Might sound strange but I’d rather they got exonerated. If we are going to continue to challenge and win league titles I would prefer city to be at their best. City at their best seems to bring out the best in us. Would we have gone 2 seasons losing 3 games if city weren’t around pushing us. Also City without Europe would give them an advantage in the league title as they would have more preparation and less midweek games. City can’t get drawn in same Cl group as us and are only direct rivals in the comp if we happen to draw them in the knock out stages and when that has happened we have gotten the results. However is there any chance we can get Athletico banned from the CL instead lol. And the cherry on the top would be if city get the ban overturned it could stop Utd getting CL.


19.) 11 Jul 2020 12:14:05
Surely we're not the only fans that complain and moan about our rivals ed02?

{Ed002's Note - Far, far more than anyone else.}


20.) 11 Jul 2020 17:31:00
If the evidence against City was illegally-obtained, incomplete and mis-interpreted as Ed02 has said then, this is a slam dunk as in, case dismissed and nothing to see here, IMO.

As a result, UEFA will be left embarrassed and red-faced for all the world to see and City will be vindicated, as they should be if what ED02 says is true.

Frankly, I'm not sure why some on here are so obsessed with this issue with City? Yes, they are our rivals and all that and the regular banter is cool but the constant obsession/ whining and bitching to see them get done for pretty much a non-issue, boggles the mind.

As Ed02 says, we are in a good place right now, as a club and as a fan base. Champions of the England, Europe and the World. We broke and pummelled City this season where it mattered which is on the pitch and dethroned them, something unthinkable 2 seasons ago yet people can seem to be happy with these achievements. Again, boggles the mind.

Yesterday showed how important Bobby is to our team.

I agree he needs more goals, and yes he's not been firing on all cylinders of late but he's the crucial link to the front three. He's pressing from the front also plays a big part in us winning the ball back in the opponent's final third, where we can be devastatingly lethal when we get it right.

1.) 06 Jul 2020 07:57:07
No arguments with that Drogie, fully agree. Bobby is probably my fav player. But when he, or any of the other strikers, are going thru a bad spell (or injured) wouldn't it be great to have a top class option to bring in that is going to score us goals regularly. Probably nothing going to happen this year so we will begin next season with Origi as first choice sub again.


2.) 06 Jul 2020 11:08:21
Top class players are not likely to come to us to sit on the bench and provide back up and we can’t afford to pay someone top wages to do so either.


3.) 06 Jul 2020 15:19:17
I was closely watching for the difference to shape when origi plays and it is very clear. Origi does not drop into midfield to collect the ball and there for doesn't drag defenders out of space so the low block was easily applied against us until Bobby came on. Nothing against origi because that's not how he plays.

However, for salah and mane to be most effective they need a centre forward who will drop into those holes and pull players from their position, additionally play those balls earlier with a touch of trickery which what firmino does perfectly. When firmino is not even in form he does this well and this is why we need him in the starting 11. Would love to see hi. Bang in an extra 10 a season though.


4.) 06 Jul 2020 15:25:58
we are not asking for world-class payers but somebody who can at least play in our system effectively.
origi has been here for 6 years and came before our front 3 and still, he cannot command a starting place consistently.
do you really think our front 3 worry about his presence on the bench when they are having a bad spell?


5.) 06 Jul 2020 15:29:48
Rhian Brewster!


6.) 06 Jul 2020 17:26:25
I like Brewster, didn't he score again for Swansea on the weekend? Really good in front of goal, but he is lacking in build up/ link up play for me. Mind you, this is largely to do with his stunted development due to injuries. He is one that really needs game time to develop and he won't get that at Liverpool. He should go out on loan again next season to keep gaining experience at a decent level.


7.) 06 Jul 2020 20:24:59
Decelticon, what non top class player who by the way, is trying to make it in the game, is going to leave where he plays regularly and perform, to come and sit on the bench at LFC esp. with Klopp who plays the front three near every time when fit?

Liverpool's greatest day: driving an open-top bus through Everton's hopes and dreams in 1986

On this day in 86 not only a good day at the old Wembley but putting Everton in our shadow once again. Fa cup and league double.

Rushey got 2, Johnston sealed it after Gary Lineker put the bitters ahead.

Drogie

{Ed025's Note - i was there drogie in the liverpool end, halcyon days indeed, we were actually the better side but never performed on the day, still a great day and the pubs were ringing out with cries of "merseyside merseyside" as we took over the capital, if only it were like that these days mate, instead we have nutters on both sides who prefer to fight instead of sing....its very sad actually..


1.) 10 May 2020 08:49:23
ed025 could not agree more so much better when it was like that red stood with blue. when did it change ed such a shame because I can never see it going back to how it was.

{Ed025's Note - i would say the start of the millenium grino but im guessing, i cant see it ever going back to them heady days mate which is such a shame, we were revered as the best supporters in the land and we were, sadly we are just like the rest now..


2.) 10 May 2020 10:58:57
Shame both sets of fans aren't in the better mind set would love there to be mutual respect running through all the fans. it shows how society has changed for the worse over the years.


3.) 10 May 2020 11:31:22
I was there with my mate, Blues supporter, what a game. As ed25 said the atmosphere was amazing the memories of being outside the ground after seeing blue and red together everywhere. Awesome.

{Ed025's Note - it really was wiltshire, those who were lucky enough to be there will never forget it mate..


4.) 10 May 2020 12:57:34
Saying that though Ed, there was some bad blood with Man Utd from both Merseyside teams.
But at least Everton weren’t Man Utd B Team then!

{Ed025's Note - and the reds are not southampton B either juicer.. :)


5.) 10 May 2020 16:40:25
Lmao, true Ed.


6.) 11 May 2020 01:08:28
Bit harsh Ed25. Given the way transfers have gone, prob fairer to say Southampton are the Liverpool B side nowadays.


7.) 11 May 2020 17:59:12
Ed025, that's what football should be all about, man. Not so much these days, sadly.

{Ed025's Note - yeah your right RM, i used to look forward to derbies and the day would start at 10am and go right through till midnight, we would all be together whatever the result and yes there was a load of stick given but it was all in good fun and you took it on the chin mate, the last one i went to the supporters were vile to each other and i swore i would never go again..

I might be clutching at straws but I’ve seen enough of Naby live to see there is a good player in there. It’s just a case of applying himself.

He did at one stage, get a run off games where he started to play well, then he got injured again. Staying fit will be key for Naby and I also have heard he’s been decent in training.

Werner was never going to dislodge any of the Front 3, so would he really come to sit on the bench and maybe get more game time during the AFCON.

I still think Minamino will do a job, some players need more time to adapt.

I’ll get shot down for this but I also still see a player in Naby if he can he keep fit.

Ed002.
Bitching mode is an understatement.
I had a look on my twitter account and the abuse Peter Moore was getting was terrible, I felt embarrassed to be a liverpool fan. I actually engaged with one particular individual, eventually putting him in his place after his slagging off of FSG.

Anyway, why were you uncomfortable with the Werner signing? To be honest it’s not something I’ll be losing sleep over, just interested in your thoughts. I’m with you regarding the home grown talent coming through,

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - Moores has fixed his issue. The uncomfort with Werner was largely game time. Liverpol has a great squad, limited funds so they need to focus - what makes the side better.}

Klopp is an angel compared to Ferguson

Not only was he continually tapping up players but storming into the officials office after a game, berating decisions they didn’t go his way, asking for officials not to referee matches that he didn’t see fit. The list goes on.

{Ed002's Note - You don't need to apologise Drogie. You are a good poster and don't stop, but the Liverpool supporters seem to struggle with the subject - which needs to be understood to be comment worthy. There is a level of paranoia which doesn't go away.}

I’m personally not bothered, teams are usually hated when they’re the best and right now, being European, World, Super Cup we are the best. Not only this, we’ve lost only two games in almost two seasons.

Yes C.V. has hit the club financially but the club has never been in a better position in years, especially recruitment wise.

So take those comments from across the park as a compliment as we are more than doing things right. I have a lot of blue mates and it’s tough for them right now 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆 #6times.
