Benteke injured again - knee ligaments apparently. JK not having the best of breaks is he.


1.) 28 Oct 2015 00:20:10
Oh great. Another injury.

Knee, eh? He's had knee problems before -- back in 2013/14. In fact, Benteke has a history of injuries, period. Wonder, do we have another Sturridge on our hands? Glorious.

Give me Firmino up front in Bournemouth, please.

2.) 28 Oct 2015 03:05:53
Could be back for Chelski according to physio room.

3.) 28 Oct 2015 04:44:38
Ibe, Coutinho, Teixeira
Chirivella, (? )

Would a be pleasant sight.

4.) 28 Oct 2015 08:50:35
If you had to play a random player upfront i would like to see how Ibe went with the simple instructions to run in behind and stretch them. He is strong and for me gets a little confused in his decision making at the moment playing wide.

5.) 28 Oct 2015 13:19:31
Id like to see Sinclair given shot tonight - Maybe even with Firmino up top.

6.) 28 Oct 2015 15:29:35
Possibility that Benteke actually requires surgery!

7.) 29 Oct 2015 12:38:32
Nothing wrong with his decision making when he made that feinted through ball to Randall! Olè!

I have just read the the UEFA Chief has stated that if the season was called off Liverpool will NOT be awarded the title.

So it seems the wait will go on.


{Ed002's Note - That is not what he said.}

1.) 18 Mar 2020 15:31:14
I don't know what he said ED, that's why my post states 'I have just read'. I quote "Liverpool will not be Premier League champions if coronavirus leads to the season being declared null and void, insists UEFA bass Aleksander Ceferin". Source is Mail 0nline today.

Anyway, let's wait and see. As far as I'm concerned health comes before everything else no matter how long this things takes.

{Ed002's Note - That is not what he said.}

2.) 18 Mar 2020 15:42:30
This is the quotes from him taken from the express

I’ve saw and heard some again fake news that Uefa will advise leagues to finish the championships now and decide that the winners are the ones who are number one now.

“I can say that it’s not true. Our goal is to finish the leagues and we didn’t recommend anything like that to any association or any league.

The papers have made it sound like he has said 'liverpool won't be given the league' so people will click on it.

3.) 18 Mar 2020 18:03:33
Spot on, Ed and WYred. The media only took parts of his full quotes, created a fake news story to get clicks and spread rubbish. Just saw a manc fan on Youtube bigging up this piece of fake news as well. Some of these mancs are pathetic, really.

Ceferin is in charge of UEFA. He could not be arsed about what Liverpool or its fans want or where the PL title goes. The guy has no jurisdiction ove the PL as an entity, if I'm not mistaken. They postponed the Euros so the leagues and UEFA club comps. can be finished. That is the Real news, here. Anything else, is just horse manure, as they say in the States.

Frankly, some of these rival fans have been showing their true colors lately. They are obsessed with LFC and are hoping this contagion stop us from winning the PL, as if that is what is important right now.

4.) 18 Mar 2020 18:25:29
I was worried, but after hearing all the arguments I really think it'll be continued. Especially with euros being cancelled. They can't Rob us of the title.

5.) 18 Mar 2020 19:58:40
It’s what they do and they are doing the same with this virus, anything to get clicks and sell papers.
News should be purely informative but unfortunately that’s a pipe dream
As for rival fans, some of ours have apparently been the same saying all that matters is the title.
Don’t get me wrong I want us to win it, I’ve waited all my life for it, but I wouldn’t trade it for any lives. People’s health has to come first and what will be will be.
The leagues all want to get it over the line, but we are dealing with an unknown right now.

6.) 18 Mar 2020 21:38:11
I fully agree with you here, WYred. We just have to hope and pray that things get moving slowly but surely cos the way news keeps coming out about the virus and how it is moving, we could be here for a long while, man.

7.) 18 Mar 2020 23:33:06
It's not the seriousness of the illness that is the problem, more than 104 people have died from cancer in the last few weeks. It's the fact that the authorities haven't legislated for the impact this has made. Once we get ahead of it, rather than playing catch up, I think things will start to settle down.
And worst case scenario (for reds fans) that it's null and void. Every single person will still believe and say that Liverpool won the 19/ 20 season. Okay we won't have a trophy but we will have the memories of an unbelievable season. Bobby scoring in the wcc final. Beating utd, smashing City. List goes on. Henderson rise to wc centre mid. And at least we didn't spend a fortune in the summer. That's now looks extremely shrewd (or rather lucky)

8.) 19 Mar 2020 08:59:48
Robbie, the season will not be void or cancelled, IMO and here is why. There are rules in place made by the PL themselves, stating that a season is a period where the first and last fixture is played, as scheduled. Also, each team HAS to play each other twice for a season to be complete.

If the season is voided (even if they did what they could to complete it), the PL would be in breach of that same rule they made and lawsuits could be flying.

I already read a report of the top 6 clubs in the Championship meeting to assess options if the season is voided and nobody gets relegated nor promoted. This is not about LFC alone, man. EVERYONE in the 4 pro leagues in England is involved.

IMO, this is among the reasons why as Ed02 has said repeatedly, the FA and PL's first and for now ONLY focus is the completion of the season. Even UEFA are on the same page with their organized comps. Again, just my opinion based on what I have read.

{Ed001's Note - if they voided the season, they would not be in breach of that rule. They would be in breach if they tried to award trophies based on the way the table is now though.}

9.) 19 Mar 2020 11:04:46
We can drive ourselves crazy worrying and trying to second guess what's going to happen with the league.

The FA / Prem etc will not want to void the season, and decisions to recommence, further delay or cancel will be based on the advice and the situation as it develops explore every viable option to complete the competitions.

Breaches of contract? I believe Ed002 on that, and I reckon there'll be force majeure clause applicable to any decision to void the season, and Health and Safety Laws supercede any contract which may breach them.



24 Jan 2020 12:40:16
Tough game last night against a team who played out of their skin at home under the floodlights against the European and World Club champions and gave it a real go.

However, Wolves have won only 8 games this season and only 1 in their last 5/ 6 matches, so let's see how they get on in their next few fixtures.

Every team will raise their game against us especially trying to be the ones to end our unbeaten run.

The injury to Mane though is bad news as after he went off our attacking threat diminished remarkably.


1.) 24 Jan 2020 13:07:27
To be fair the game followed the normal pattern of this season. We tend to blow teams away for the first half hour, then have a resting period in the middle 30, and then turn it on after 60 minutes to see games out. That's been to pattern of play in most games I've watched us in to be honest! So unclear whether it was connected to Mane or not. I think the main thing we missed with Mane was how well he screens Robbo. Robertson is not great defensively but gets away with it because Mane is defensively the best left winger I've ever seen.

2.) 24 Jan 2020 16:55:44
Klopp has come out and said Traore was unplayable. I trust the judgement of the best manager in Europe. Robbo will have him next time.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 18:37:56
What I will say about traore. He seems to know when to drop deep when his team are attacking down the left and that gives him space to move into and pick his head up for a cross.

I don't think he's as good as people think. This is going to sound horrible, don't get me wrong, it's not what I want, but someone is going to put one on him soon. These top class defenders don't like getting skinned by pace and little talent and some nasty cb is going to snap soon, I can feel it.

4.) 25 Jan 2020 01:45:29
I've watched the highlights again as I can't find the full game. And any wolves fans who think they were better, I'd urge them to have a look at the number of chances both teams had. We had tonnes. And mino would have got a debut goal if salah had played him in. Mino did everything right and salah went for goal. There was an almost identical chance where salah should've played in Aoc.

That would've been 4 1. Wolves had two good chances and one went in. The other looked it should've gone in (at 2 1) but was a much harder chance than it looked. Was never going in. There were a couple of half chances for wolves but we had them at bay for the most part. Whereas with a bit of passing from our front 3 (mainly salah) we could have come away 5 1. 5 2 to be generous to wolves.



11 Aug 2019 22:42:32
Hey Eds and fellow posters - what has happened to Ron Keague? Not seen a single post from him for months.


{Ed025's Note - i dont know KBL..

1.) 11 Aug 2019 22:51:17
He and AOE. I hope they are both okay and back soon.

2.) 11 Aug 2019 22:54:21
Come to think of it yeah, where are them two?

3.) 12 Aug 2019 00:16:46
Yeah, where are those two? Also, where is MK Scouser? Is he now Plain Bread?

4.) 12 Aug 2019 00:30:27
Family life lad's but I'm sure they are ok.

5.) 12 Aug 2019 00:44:45
And what about MK scouser?

6.) 12 Aug 2019 00:51:12
Yeah Salah where is AOE :)

7.) 12 Aug 2019 06:19:09
I'm here Roy :)

Oops ;) .

8.) 12 Aug 2019 08:31:35
Wirral Wonder also, good poster.

9.) 12 Aug 2019 09:03:03
Seen a quick reply to a post from ron the other day. Was wondering myself if he was ok. The handshake emoji will be back in no time.

10.) 12 Aug 2019 11:11:33
Ron's about, replied to a post a day or two ago.

I know AOE was spending more time on family and his book, and on being 'Salah' ;-) .

MK Scouser is busy with work and young family :)

11.) 12 Aug 2019 11:51:31
Did we ever find out if Ron Keague and Ken Aguero were the same person? I miss Ken Aguero's Lucky Pants updates!

12.) 12 Aug 2019 17:25:05
Not seen BRover on here for ages either.

13.) 12 Aug 2019 18:11:26
I believe they are, Davey, as the anagram suggests.

14.) 12 Aug 2019 19:39:03
JK23, BRover is now Redwolf mate.

15.) 12 Aug 2019 19:53:32
JK23. Brover is now Redwolf I believe.

16.) 12 Aug 2019 20:13:16
👍 cheers gents.



08 Aug 2019 13:38:43
Greetings Eds.

I posted a fairly long one yesterday morning, but haven't seen it anywhere on here so far.

Is this just a glitch or any other reason?



{Ed002's Note - It is there somewhere.}



29 Jun 2019 13:00:23
After the CL final John Henry was interviewed and said how gutted he was that we didn't win the league. He then stated that further investment would be made to give us a better chance of the title this coming season.

I don't think buying a 17 year old, and rumours of around 20 million available for transfers would improve our chances very much.

Any thoughts guys?


1.) 29 Jun 2019 13:28:17
It would be great to go splashing the cash.

Question is on what area.

We need left and right back. But as they won't play much options will be limited.

For me recruit from within in these areas. Motivation will not be an issue.

We have grucic and ox who can make an impact in midfield and ox out wide.
So midfield is fine.

Up front we look light.

We have Brewster and imo we maybe need a number 10 who can fill both roles.

So not really a lot needs to change.

We need 1 may be or 2 new players and that's it, unless someone leaves.

I would love zaha. But do we need him. Well no. But I prefer us to get him than say man Utd.

If Firmino gets an injury we will be stuffed.

So a number 10 should be the priority.

2.) 29 Jun 2019 13:30:45
There's much more to come, not the end of the window is it? Be patient.

3.) 29 Jun 2019 13:35:54
Matip - 0
Robbo - 8mil
Gomez - 4mil

Mo 32mil
Gini 30mil
Fab 30mil (or was it 40?)

Just pointing out that you don't need to spend a fortune to get top class players.

4.) 29 Jun 2019 14:57:00
Shaqiri and Origi also had some match winning performances this season and they were signed very cheaply.

5.) 29 Jun 2019 15:23:07
Do we really need to splash though? Buy for the future makes a bit sense with our current squad.

6.) 29 Jun 2019 15:29:31
OP, John W. Henry does not run LFC. He just owns it hence, he just gave his opinion on how Klopp will be backed and investment will be made. Read that to mean that investment will be done IF Klopp wants it and ONLY if Klopp wants it so I would not read too much into what he said. Also, don't pay too much attention to pathetic rumors that Klopp will only have 20m to spend and all that crap. None of it is true. The same had been said about Arsenal having only 45m to spend YET they are fully in for Zaha who could cost well over that amount. It is nonsense, really.

As for who we will sign, I'm not in the bit bothered about it right now cos everyone is on vacay and the window does not end until 5-6 weeks from now. Our scouting team NEVER stop working (we had been tracking Naby since 2014, I read somewhere) and the Ed'1s have been saying that there is interest in several players and that they expect players to come in. Hence, I'm chill so I think you should be chill as well and enjoy the wonderful weather across Europe cos trust me, most of our players are.

7.) 29 Jun 2019 15:40:52
I dont think John W is head of our recruitment team. I think the Eds have made it clear time and again that if there is a player identified who Klopp wants, funds would be made available. So, unless John and Tom spend their weekends scouting the Dutch leagues, I doubt hes their signing.

8.) 29 Jun 2019 16:23:38
Good point h005.

9.) 29 Jun 2019 17:58:18
Regardless of whether FSG is going to splash the cash or not, the one thing I am sure of is that John Henry is not about to reveal his true thoughts to anyone beyond his brain trust at LFC. Everything else is just mumbo jumbo for social media consumption and PR purposes.

10.) 29 Jun 2019 18:38:31
RedWolf I think youre giving Klopp too much power there also.
To me it is much more of a structure, with various inputs.
This is one of the things I certainly do credit FSG for, in the past their inexperience has got the club burned.
Now, the process of recruitment seems more considered.
But the various staff and departments all seem to work well together, that is key.
No power struggles.

11.) 29 Jun 2019 19:07:22
It is not about whether FSG want to splash the cash.

Liverpool FC need to fund money for transfers. FSG cannot keep on being LFC's cash cow otherwise the clubs debt will keep on growing.

The club will make singings but not on the magnitude of VVD and Allisson.

We need back ups not replacements for 1st team players unless the likes of Salah leaves.

12.) 30 Jun 2019 13:21:28
If the club see value in the market theyll buy. Which theyve consistently done over the last few seasons. If not they wont. The complaining from some fans is getting ridiculous, we just won the bloody champions league and its a young squad.

I read an interview by Mane today on the LFC website that states that Naby is a regular visitor to Mane's house, so they must still be at least civil to each other. From Mane's comments there doesn't appear to be any falling out or anything. But, hey, who knows?


{Ed001's Note - as close mate, I never said they were not friends, just not like they were. They were completely inseparable, best mates who did everything together. Mane now has other friends, they have not fallen out, they are just not as close.}

Even with the kids and the total disruption to the defence, if it hadn't been for our own mistakes, I don't think Wolves would have scored at all. Mignolet had absolutely nothing to do throughout the whole game.

I think Klopp put a team out and hoped we might get through, but probably didn't expect to. As stated earlier, there was zero reaction from him when we equalized.

I just hope we can pick up the points tomorrow in what will be a very tricky fixture.

It was a very good performance so please don't diss the boys with comments like that. Did you actually watch it?

The loss is hard to swallow though because we actually had the job done at 2-0 before Adrian's mistake. In my opinion he should have stopped all 3 goals but whet do we always say? Win as a team and lose as a team.

Make no mistake we now have what will be a really tough game next Monday.


{Ed001's Note - the difference in the end came down to the defences. Atletico threw everything in defensively, unfortunately for us, Adrian had a mare and our defence (particularly Virgil but it wasn't just him) stood off them and let them play. When it was in forward or midfield areas, the team got in their faces and harried them into giving the ball back. When they got into our defensive third, everyone was stood off letting them pass it around. At one point we had 3 defenders back (I think it was their second) against 2 forwards, but still Virgil just ran away from Morata rather than closing him down, so he was able to pick a pass under no pressure to Llorente. Then Gomez and Henderson did the same to Llorente, enabling him to shoot easily. The only challenge was from Millie trying to get back but not quite in time. Why were we suddenly so timid in defensive areas, even when we had a covering player? Virgil should have shut Morata down, we all know he has no bottle and would have just shanked his pass into touch or to a red shirt.}

JK23 - when Adrian first came in it was during the first game of the season, and he became part of the solidity of the team. We had hardly started being free scoring by then, but I agree that we have been very sterile recently and he will be even more important now because if we concede we could be in trouble as we are not only not scoring right now, but not creating chances either. since Klopp came in March has been the worst month of the season for us. It needs to improve quickly.


{Ed001's Note - we are creating chances. We are not hitting the target with them, but we create plenty.}

Also remember this was the 3rd away game out of the last 4 played. That does have an impact. I know our form hasn't been great (and still isn't), but even with this we have been able to get over the line in front of our home support. Let's hope we are able to on Saturday.
