One for banter or discussion page if the eds may allow.

Get away from all the doom and gloom of corona-virus and suspended sports, use the internet for what its good for. connecting with people

So fellow Reds, where are we from?

ME East Yorkshire, England. I know there are posters from around the world. Any from Maine USA? that's one of my favourite parts of the world and I've probably only seen 0.05% of it.

{Ed002's Note - A good idea to distract matters and get away from the same issue being raised over and over. So if I must, I was born in Bellevue, WA and grew up in the San Francisco Bay area but moved from there in 1981.}

Barnehurst in Kent.
Done my youth in dirty Dartford. Far enough way to get away from the smell but still local enough.

3.) 13 Mar 2020 14:36:47
I know Barnehurst, been to the barn a few times.

4.) 13 Mar 2020 14:46:32
Bray Ireland. i've lived in greystones now 3 years and am saving all my pennies into moving right back to bray ASAP.

5.) 13 Mar 2020 14:51:03
Lisburn, N. I, I live in Nottingham with my partner at the moment. I miss back home mind.

6.) 13 Mar 2020 15:05:30
As the name suggests, Chester.
Moved about a bit and lived in Leeds, Southampton and Melbourne, Australia at various times, but the beautiful North West of England dragged me back.

7.) 13 Mar 2020 15:26:05
Spent some time in Chester a long while ago, Nice place. I was working in Runcorn and for some reason the powers that be decided digs 20 miles away was the best option.
Dartford, been through the Dartford tunnel a couple of times, but that's about it.
Unfortunately the only time I have spent in Ireland is at Dublin Airport for a connecting flight to Boston, USA.

Sweden is a place I wouldn't mind visiting, if my lucky numbers ever came up, I'd do a tour of Europe, are tour of Australia and New Zealand, before emigrating to the US (though recently I have considered New Zealand an option) . All pipe dreams though unfortunately.

8.) 13 Mar 2020 15:26:40
Inverness, via Kilmarnock (birth) and Glasgow (by choice) . Moving up in the world, at least geographically!

9.) 13 Mar 2020 15:33:51
As the name suggests I originate from Cornwall (Ed 002's favourite place on earth) but now live in Essex.

{Ed002's Note - I am in Cornwall as I type this.}

10.) 13 Mar 2020 15:48:52

🤔Why would you move from Cornwall to Essex 😆.

11.) 13 Mar 2020 15:46:20
I have also spent time in Scotland working (in short bursts) . The borders, Coasts and North are lovely, but the central area I didn't like.

I got lost once and found myself in Craigneuk, which was possibly one of the worst places I have ever stopped, and I have relatives in Pishy Wishy.

Would like to visit Inverness and then go further up and do the Northcoast 500.

I am from Serbia and became LFC fan back in 1990.

Just for curiosity, you would be really surprised how many people here are lifelong LFC fans even though out of 3 players from my country, 2 of them (M. Jovanovic and L. Markovic) were probably among top ten worst signings ever, while one (Grujic) might not even get an opportunity to show why he was signed.

Belfast, Ireland born and bred.



11 Mar 2020 18:53:18
I have seen this on instagram and in a couple of other places.

Which player would you like to score the goal that seals the premier league title.

My first choice would be Henderson, he's been the driving force on the pitch.

if not Henderson, what a way it would be for Gomez to score his first goal for Liverpool.

1.) 11 Mar 2020 19:16:17
I second that KSG: I would like to see Jordan Henderson score the goal to win the Premier League.

2.) 11 Mar 2020 19:22:37
If it's at home, with the way things currently are, I'd go with Firmino. Away from home, I'd love to see Henderson clinch it with a screamer.

3.) 11 Mar 2020 19:26:15
Stevie G.

4.) 11 Mar 2020 19:50:10
Henderson or Trent for me.

5.) 11 Mar 2020 21:00:37
Jordan Pickford own goal.

6.) 12 Mar 2020 01:19:26
Hendo of course but trent would be fine.
I don't care if it comes off guy Mowbray's mic.

But I think it'll be mane or ox. Don't get why the ox came off today. He was brilliant.

{Ed0666's Note - Adrian

7.) 12 Mar 2020 13:21:46
No argument from me - Hendo all the way! If we're going with 'first goals' I'd throw Minamino into the mix too - he's looked good in fits and starts and I think a goal would really help him, especially such an iconic one.

8.) 12 Mar 2020 13:24:39
Minamino. Instant legend.



11 Mar 2020 10:11:25

could you say how reliable/ accurate is transfermarkt. co. uk? are the players values accurate around the mark?

I know players can get bought/ sold for a more or less then they are worth, just wondering if its a good indication of current value.

I've only just started looking at it to find out more about players LFC have or are assumed to have shown interest in.

{Ed002's Note - They add their best guess for the values. No more than that.}

1.) 11 Mar 2020 10:23:10
I think the CIES Observatory is like, the standard.

{Ed001's Note - still little more than guesswork. }

2.) 11 Mar 2020 12:59:22
They should list down the player prices in the amount of toilet roll and hand sanitizer bottles you can get in exchange. It would mean something more.

3.) 12 Mar 2020 00:49:23
Obviously impossible to be perfect as every value is variable but I think they offer a pretty accurate opinion based on form, age etc. One thing I don't think they use is contract status though, i remember seeing Christian erikson valued at 90mil or something before he moved to inter despite his contract running out.

{Ed001's Note - it is nowhere near accurate, contract status is one of the biggest deciders in value. It is just like saying FIFA ratings are accurate, they simply aren't.}

4.) 14 Mar 2020 04:16:24
Yeah I agree that not using contract does take away from the players real worth. But asides from that and if you were to take each player on a hypothetical identical contract length then the values imo aren't terribly false. Of course everyone has different perspective and I do think many players are rated too high and many too low but I'm not sure any other databases would deliver much more accuracy, obviously contract statuses aside.

Another option and selfless, Wuhan, November 2019, with a shotgun, just before the act that started this worldwide pickle we find ourselves in.

I would either pop into the near future to rig myself a nice large euro-millions lottery win.

Or 20 years into the past and tell myself - "take the job! "

If you want a better answer then I'd pop back to 033Ad and check out this Jesus Story.

Oh no. Ed. did you lend Robbie Fowler your time machine? did he pop back to the year 000 and have a fling with a bird named Mary?

Ed002: re the Vinicious Jnr not working out bit, are you in a position to give more info? He seems to have a lot of potential. He was in and out of the game last night, but had some very good moments. He was certainly giving Man City a lot more to think about than Bale.

{Ed002's Note - Vinicius Jnr has been offered around to a number of sides. It has not been working out well for the player in Spain and Wolves have shown an interest in him but he would only be a second string to Diego Jota - and the asking price (circa €60M - although they may accept less) is seen as high. Arsenal have been approached but with Saka emerging on the left it is the issue of Pepe on the right and Aubameyangadingdong in the centre or left that needs the most consideration - but he shares and agent with Martinelli so there may be a discussion. Chelsea have also been approached as he would provide an option to Hudson-Odoi on the left allowing Pulisic to move to his more natural right side. Others have been approached but none would be in a position to look for more than a loan and Real Madrid need players gone to continue their rebuild.}

Assuming Mane is in the left wing/ forward category, if if switched back to the right, do you think he'd get in this right winger/ forward list?

{Ed001's Note - yes most definitely.}

Cheers ED001

There were a few games towards the end where I thought Virgil looked a bit less van Dijk and a bit more Lovren, but as brilliant as he is, even the best have their off days, and for all the other times he's been world class, I forgive him😉

Hope everyone is keeping sane, safe and happy during these crazy times.

{Ed001's Note - he looked in need of a break to me, while Gomez was all fresh and firing.}

I don't see the need to bring in a defender who's going to take Joe's first team spot. Gomez has the ability to be one of the best out there.
In my opinion, already the best English Centre Back at the minute

He maybe has to improve concentration at times, but there are few CB's who don't (hence the need for he spectacular tackles that get them noticed in the first place)

Am I guilty of over rating or biased? Maybe, but it just my opinion.

ED01.Whats your opinion on Gomez, and the current crop of England CB's?

{Ed001's Note - most of the England centre-backs around now are poor defenders, they are all midfielders playing at the back and struggle with positioning. Gomez is one that stands out because he plays like a defender with quality on the ball too. Gomez is excellent and, once he got back to form, he was actually our best centre-back over the final part of the season. That tells you a lot, as van Dijk is world class and yet Gomez was playing better than he was.}

I hope it isn't, the white and teal around the arm and neck trims looks awful.

If so, Maybe now Nike have taken the contract from NB they should take one or two of their kit designers as well.

It looks like just a plain red top, which wouldn't be so bad without that stupid trim, keep the trim to just white or yellow.

{Ed002's Note - Teal, as in the small duck?}

I used to think Virgil was going to be the next captain, but I'm not so sure he's the right person anymore.

Hendo has been a great captain so far and for a couple of years to go yet.

for the future. out of the current crop maybe (only maybe) Robertson could develop into the role.

{Ed001's Note - good point Robbo is a great shout, he is not afraid to speak his mind and is certainly not quiet.}
