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


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.



09 Oct 2019 16:58:29
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.


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

7.) 10 Oct 2019 00:15:59
Ed 02
Sorry. I am in the states. Can you explain what those options are please?
Matt in FL.

{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.


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.



14 Apr 2019 20:34:52
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.


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


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.


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..




Drogie's banter posts with other poster's replies to Drogie's banter posts


19 Feb 2020 07:48:00
Think the most frustrating thing last night was the fact we didn't have one shot on target.

Sometimes when teams park the bus and make it difficult, rather than try and walk the ball inti the net, take a few long range shots, mix it up a bit.


{Ed001's Note - we had a fair few long range shots, Fabinho hit at least 2 for starters.}

1.) 19 Feb 2020 09:55:21
Was there a target in the crowd that they were all trying to hit?

2.) 19 Feb 2020 09:55:57
I think you have to give them credit for the result, they defended the 1 goal lead very well and we couldn't find a way through. We didn't play badly it is what it is. I still fancy us to go through with the Annfield crowd behind us.

3.) 19 Feb 2020 10:43:59
For games like these you need the little gem in midfield who can pick a pass through the eye of a needle
Step forward Keita for the second leg.

4.) 19 Feb 2020 10:49:02
They were so compact, content to let us have it wide, and defend crosses etc (which were rarely decent) . Think we could have done with maybe dropping bobby into AM with another attacker up top, just not Salah, thought his touch was poor too much and it just wasnt happening for him. We needed to try another approach than to stick to the usual. But, confident it will be turned around at Anfield.

5.) 19 Feb 2020 13:47:50
Pretty sure Mo’s shot was on target, but as it was blocked it didn’t register under the shots on target total.

6.) 19 Feb 2020 20:54:13
We did not play well enuff to win that game last night and part of it is down to how AM played. They got a lucky goal very early in the game and played their tactics perfectly. They are the best in Europe at parking the bus. Jose is a choir boy compared to El Cholo when it comes to stifling the opposition. We all have to get better, prepare harder for the second leg cos trust me, AM will do the exact same thing.



14 Feb 2020 22:32:48
Ed002, couple of questions.

read below that Everton and villa are also in a dangerous place with regards to FFP - Are their circumstances the same as Man City's?

Also, did I also read a while ago that we were also warned over FFP?


{Ed002's Note - (a) No, it is an FA issue and both are in trouble. (b) Liverpool fixed their big issues and are fine right now.}

1.) 15 Feb 2020 00:05:57
I would hardly seem worth banning Everton from Europe, I would be like banning me from marrying Gal Gadot!

{Ed025's Note - cheeky sod.. :)

2.) 15 Feb 2020 07:38:25
Thanks - may I ask what the issues are with Everton and Villa? I do find this stuff really interesting, it’s a great insight that we can trust, not some media crap.

Would Everton and Villa be banned from Europe or deducted points if it’s an fa issue?

{Ed002's Note - Try the Everton and Aston Villa pages where this has been explained.}

3.) 15 Feb 2020 09:19:46
So what would be the possible outcome for them, also is it solvable and when is a decision due too be made on them 2.

{Ed002's Note - The outcome for others already charged for similar infractions varies (Nottingham Forest - fine and transfer embargo, Birmingham City - points deduction, Sheffield Wednesday - to be determined, Derby County - to be determined) etc..}



13 Feb 2020 19:28:48
So a poster called Laddie Bunton gives a yuk comment when I mention Parsons Green. How ignorant.

That's where I have a few pints when I travel down for Chelsea away. Great boozer called the white horse with a real good selection of beer.


1.) 13 Feb 2020 21:29:12
And? Happens to everyone. You obviously don't drink enough to have developed a thick skin Drogie. 😉.

2.) 13 Feb 2020 23:32:24
I only remember a few posts from that poster, none of them made any sense.

3.) 14 Feb 2020 11:47:21

Haha apologies if required. I'd probably had a few myself. ✌.



12 Feb 2020 20:32:29
Evening Ed002.

Whilst my question is not liverpool related, I have just returned from working on Munster Road whilst managing to squeeze in a few pints of the delicious Harvey's Sussex beer in my favourite pub in the SW6 area - The White Horse, better known as the Sloany Pony - Parson's Green.

Chelsea look set to sign Ziyech - Didn't the transfer window close 31st Jan - 11pm?


{Ed002's Note - Parson’s Green is a good area. I haven’t lived in Chelsea for a very long time but I stay their on a regular basis (at Chelsea Harbour). I regularly use Munster Road as a short-cut. There is a rationale for Chelsea opting for Frank Lampard’s choice of Ziyech and stepping away from Sancho. The transfer window does not apply to Chelsea.}

1.) 12 Feb 2020 20:47:29
To clarify Drogie any club can sign a player now but they cannot register them until the window re opens as with HZ he would not arrive at chelsea till the end of the season.

We could set up deals now for any player should we wish in readiness for the opening of the window.

2.) 12 Feb 2020 20:48:39
Ah right. Cheers mate.

I love the area Ed002.

I used to live on Gastein road many moons ago. Another favourite was to walk to Hammersmith and take a walk along the Thames, towards Chiswick, stopping for a few pints at the Old Ship etc.

I usually stay at the millennium in the football ground.

{Ed002's Note - Millennium also own Chelsea Harbour and the team stays there before home games. There is a very good guitar shop there as well.}

3.) 13 Feb 2020 00:27:33
Parsons Green, Chelsea Harbour, oh dear. Yuk.



01 Feb 2020 19:53:37

So glad he got a good reception today.


1.) 01 Feb 2020 20:18:26
Drogie, his reception from the Liverpool supporters when he was substituted and from Klopp and the Liverpool players at full time was heartwarming.

{Ed025's Note - wheres that sick bucket?.. :)

2.) 01 Feb 2020 20:46:01
Ignore 25 Wirral. Everton display hatred banners towards their ex players.

Rooney - cough cough ;-) ) ) ) )

{Ed025's Note - only when he kissed the united badge when he scored in front of the gladwys st drogie...which is fair enough i think mate..

3.) 01 Feb 2020 20:56:45
True enough Ed. You wouldn’t catch a Norwegian dissing his club like that 😁😁😁😁.

{Ed025's Note - i would hope not drogie..or they would,nt enter valhalla mate.. :)

4.) 01 Feb 2020 21:13:30
What was the point in doing that Ed?

{Ed025's Note - because hes a scumbag barry mate..

7.) 01 Feb 2020 23:38:57
Id say you're quiet chirpy today Ed 25, another point towards safety 😉😂.

{Ed025's Note - towards europe you mean gmil, 3 points off 5th with this bunch of no hopers is amazing mate...mind you we are 40 behind your lot.. :)

I usually stay at the millennium in the football ground.


{Ed002's Note - Millennium also own Chelsea Harbour and the team stays there before home games. There is a very good guitar shop there as well.}
