I had to miss the game today which I was gutted about put it seems apparently I picked a good game to miss.

Got to say I think I may have a man crush on Darwin though, I should be miserable with the result but the fact he scored as made me much happier! Cheeky little finish too.

We go again lads.


1.) 07 Aug 2022 00:49:06
My only concern is that nunez’s first tough looks very poor. Yes he scored a goal but there was a huge element of luck with that. I don’t even think he meant to pass to salah for salah’s goal. I think he will come good but at the moment, he is no way the finished article.

{Ed001's Note - omg you can whine about anything can't you?}

2.) 07 Aug 2022 06:39:56
He’s 23 he’s not the finished article.

3.) 07 Aug 2022 08:37:34
KloppisTop, and that’s all you got? And the touch fir the goal? No comment on that cos it doesn’t fit your agenda, clearly, right? Ed is right. Whining for whining sake, for sure.

4.) 07 Aug 2022 09:00:56
KloppisTop is right, don’t understand the abuse. Nunez has brilliant movement, scarily good in fact but the rest leaves a lot to be desired. Noticed that he was also unwilling to drop off to get involved in the play but kept sprinting in behind which led to us losing the ball a few times when players were looking for him to come short. Will need to add variety to his game but he is a serious threat in and around the box.

5.) 07 Aug 2022 10:44:05
I'll take nunez and his poor first touch over a certain Brazilian that offers absolutely nothing anyday.
The lads were poor yesterday, alli should of saved that 1st goal. Vvd got suckered for the pen. The midfield was terrible. Hendo included but the only 1 who managed to complete the 95mins and nearly won it. Diaz and nunez were superb. Salah was invisible.
Over all a poor game but atleast we didn't lose. If nunez started it would of been 3 or 4 goals to us.

6.) 07 Aug 2022 11:36:02
Hey, Joshkel91, nobody’s abusing anybody. Also, you say Nunes was not dropping deep to help out and that led us to losing the ball. Absolute nonsense.

Why would he do that whereas Bobby did the exact same thing and it didn’t work? If he dropped deep, how would he have been in the poison he was to score? Also, we had more possession in midfield when he and Milner came on so why would he not stay up and get in behind their team which actually worked and key to us rescuing a point?

So in essence you are whining about a player who executed the coach’s instructions perfectly by all accounts, which led to the desired result of getting us back on track? Yeah, whining for whining sake, for sure.



03 Aug 2022 22:09:51
So are Liverpool going into the season without a 3rd kit?

Not that I'm complaining, I'm just surprised. You would have thought if we were having one it would have been worn in preseason to advertise it. and certainly have it announced before the season starts.


1.) 03 Aug 2022 22:37:21
They've probably already worked out which game it'll be worn at so it'll be announced that week as a guess.

They probably want to give each shirt a run on its own to encourage as many sales as possible.

2.) 03 Aug 2022 22:49:33
The third kit wasn't released until September last season.

3.) 04 Aug 2022 06:20:12
Isn't the 3rd kit the European away kit? So makes sense they would release it closer to the CL fixtures commencing.

4.) 04 Aug 2022 08:57:07
We might turn the first or second kit inside out, wear a hi-viz vest or play skins.

5.) 04 Aug 2022 13:41:04
I thought there was a leak of it the other week a green one not sure if it’s real or not but the others where leaked and where right if it is I did like the look of it.

6.) 04 Aug 2022 13:57:48
OP, there’s always a third kit. Be patient.

7.) 04 Aug 2022 16:40:51
It's a money saving exercise, we'll plays 'skins' for those matches.

8.) 04 Aug 2022 16:54:10
I can’t wait for the 3rd kit. Between doubling my financial output for fuel and energy In the last few months I can’t think than anything better than spending over £100 on a 3rd kit for my son that we wear 5 times a season.

9.) 04 Aug 2022 18:43:56
The club’s energy bill will be skyrocketing as well, even for things just like floodlights.

10.) 04 Aug 2022 23:57:53
i am sorry but the away kit for me is the most hidious i have seen since i started following lfc in 1977. i much prefer the black or yellow/ red detail kits, just a personal choice but there it is.



31 Jul 2022 21:25:39
Tyler Morton is Adam Lallana.


1.) 31 Jul 2022 21:39:22
No he’s not, he’s Tyler Morton, it’s actually quite easy to tell the difference to be fair, they have different names and they’re completely different people.

2.) 31 Jul 2022 22:57:30
And one is a current Liverpool player.

3.) 31 Jul 2022 22:58:47
And he would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for those pesky kids.

4.) 31 Jul 2022 23:40:46
Strange post op.

5.) 01 Aug 2022 01:37:23
Bajcetic >>> Morton.

6.) 01 Aug 2022 07:11:25
@Aorus, is that the full scouting report?

7.) 01 Aug 2022 08:47:34
Cringe post by the OP.

8.) 01 Aug 2022 11:12:12
What does it even mean?

9.) 01 Aug 2022 11:56:10
Lost me.

10.) 01 Aug 2022 14:04:51
Lallana has been consumed by an alien species who have used a sample of his dna to make new MecaNorton (am I right OP? )



23 Jul 2022 17:55:50
I'm really intrigued about the season ahead, I don't we've had a season where the top 6 have had so many changes in a while.

City have a world class Centre Forward but have also lost a few important players, you'd imagine they'll still spend a fair bit before the window shuts but they'll probably be different to the City we're used to.

Chelsea could well be stronger, but a brand new defense potentially may struggle to gel.

Spurs on paper have improved alot, but I'm not convinced on Richarlison and hope he destroys the whole club!

Arsenal may be stronger with players like Jesus and Zinchenko.

United seem to be playing good football but Ten Hag seems to be a bit of a drill sergeant, if things don't go there way let's see if the players handle that kind of manager or crumble without a manager to cuddle them.

And us, we could technically line up pretty much the same as last season with Jota for Mane but it looks like we'll see the likes of Darwin, Carvalho, Elliott play a lot of football who are very different to the players we had before. Fingers crossed it works out but it does feel like a new look team.

Let's see how teams settle, I have a feeling the top 6 will chop and change a lot for the first half of the season!


1.) 23 Jul 2022 18:15:31
I think Arsenal will be interesting to watch this season.

2.) 23 Jul 2022 18:37:48
City and ourselves have on paper strengthened. Whether 'on paper' translates into on the pitch will depend on how Haaland and Nunez adapt to the PL. They're both imo too good to be total flops unless there's a serious injury, so the worst they'll be is patchy. And even if they were, both sides would still be at least as good as last season.

I'm unconvinced by Chelsea and Spurs' business so far in the transfer window. I don't see anything from either that really closes the gap to Liverpool and City. Koulibaly and Sterling aren't game changers for Chelsea, and the only player Spurs signed that I think really improves them is Bissouma. And as is established, there could be problems with that one down the line. Richarlison for £50m is a mind boggling signing when you already have Kane, Son and that Swedish bloke who didn't look bad last season. Does Son need someone to lace his boots up before every game? Richarlison about fit to do that, I suppose.

Arsenal can sign whoever they like, they're going to struggle to crack top 4 as long as Arteta is in charge. Man U, I'm not sure about. Ten Hag seems like he has decent ideas, but I think the players will down tools if they hit a bad patch and they won't get back out of it. Because that's what they've done for the past couple of years. That dressing room is toxic, and taking out Pogba and Lingaard and bringing in Martinez, Eriksen and that kid from Feynoord doesn't change that imo. Don't think it changes even if they get de Jong.

So I'm calling Liverpool and City as the top 2, and comfortably so.

I'd be surprised if Chelsea or Spurs closed the gap on us in a sustained manner over the season. Could see one of them keeping the pace, or even topping the table until November, but then they'll fall off and be well behind come May. Arsenal will be 5th or 6th. Man U might get into the top 4 if everything aligns perfectly for them.

Of course there's still about 6 weeks left in the transfer window for these things to change.

3.) 23 Jul 2022 18:56:36
Arsenal will be arsenal. They haven’t strengthened one bit.

4.) 23 Jul 2022 20:08:46
I think Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea have strengthened but they need massive improvement and more importantly greater consistency to close the gap on us and City.

Haaland for Jesus is a lot paper a world class player replacing a good player. Nunez has bigger boots to fill replacing Mane but that doesn’t mean he can’t. Mane did it over numerous seasons whilst Jesus did it over numerous games.

This season going to be a very good one to watch I believe.

5.) 23 Jul 2022 21:07:23
Presumably a 90+ total will still be required to win the PL again this coming season.

Have any of the chasing pack improved enough to hit those numbers? Simple answer. No.

Mane’s departure aside, we have added a different type of forward in Darwin, Diaz will be more settled, Konate, Elliott, Curtis, Tsimikas with more experience under their belt and new blood in Carvalho and Ramsey. I think we can say that at least as strong again this season. An additional midfielder would make us stronger.

City have strengthened although there may be a little more initial disruption whilst the team gets used to two new quite different forwards. If Bernardo moves on that would be a big loss for them although I’m not convinced that could happen. I’m sure they’ll be hitting 90+ and challenging in all comps.

Spurs and Arsenal have pushed the boat out with decent signings but they’ll still be battling for top 4 at best. The addition of European football might test their squad quality and mentality. And how will they cope against teams that concede possession and sit deep and counter?

Chelsea have a bit to do yet so will withhold judgement on a title challenge but should be in top 4 reckoning. And they are always decent in CL.

United have way too much to do in the market. It’s going to be long season for them again.

Hopefully, at the very least, the chasing pack will stand more of a chance in their games against City. That would help us - although balanced out by the fact we’d have to beat them ourselves. Something we need to improve on from last season (Chelsea/ Spurs/ City draws) .

6.) 23 Jul 2022 21:12:55
I think spurs with the players they have signed and Conte will be the team if anyone to push us and city. Think Jesus is a great signing for Arsenal but still feel they will be inconsistent but could push chelsea for 4th.

7.) 23 Jul 2022 22:16:12
I'm not convinced that Chelsea will finish top 4. Arsenal and Spurs will be interesting to watch. I can see a scenario that the top 4 (not in any particular order) will by Liverpool, City, Spurs and Arsenal. We'll see about Arteta this season for sure. I will say this, I do think we will win the league and I think we have a great chance of winning Champions League. I don't think we will do well in the domestic cups though. Just my opinion though for what it's worth.

8.) 23 Jul 2022 22:22:30
For me, and on paper, there's still a gulf in quality between the first two teams (Us and ManCity) and the rest. But anything can happen. Another team can pull a Leicester and run off with the title or ManCity can end up 18 points behind the league leaders as they did recently. It's going to be a far tougher season than the usual because of the density of games, so I think squad depth will play a more important part than the usual seasons.

9.) 24 Jul 2022 09:32:39
It’s going to be us and City again for the title, IMO. The others have way too much ground to cover in terms of squad improvements, signings, rebuilds etc. As for us if we get 92 points again, I don’t think it will be enuff to pip City due to the added goals from Haaland and Alvarez. To do that, we will have to get to 95 points plus to wrest the title from them, IMO. I could be wrong but it’s just what I think.



22 Jul 2022 07:23:19
So I need to check this with the world because it seems crazy to me, but are we paying Man City in the CS on the Saturday and Strasbourg the very next day on the Sunday?

It seems wild to me, if so surely the Sunday game will be mainly youth players.


1.) 22 Jul 2022 07:59:08
@Maxx, most of the first team will play against Citeh, mostly fringe players and youngsters against Strasbourg the day after. Both games are just pre-season sharpeners.

2.) 22 Jul 2022 08:31:37
It's not the first time we've played pre-season friendlies on consecutive days. I seem to remember it happening last season or the season before.

3.) 22 Jul 2022 09:35:15
OP, Klopp does this all the time as in, playing a friendly game the day on the Sun after the dress rehearsal friendly on the weekend prior to the start of the PL. No need to go crazy. Some of us are already aware of this for the past several years. We’re good.

4.) 22 Jul 2022 10:43:08
I’d like us to go out and win the charity shield. One step in our drive for five!

5.) 22 Jul 2022 10:44:30
In the old days clubs played a league game boxing day and return fixture with same opponent the day after.

Maybe they should play one game in the morning and one latr in the afternoon or evening!

6.) 22 Jul 2022 11:25:32
We could end up playing 8 or 9 competitive games next April Tommy - things, at the very top level, with club and country commitments are probably worse today than they have ever been.

7.) 22 Jul 2022 11:29:35
Players love playing football. I can imagine the lads who don’t play or get 30 mins or less in the Charity shield will be chomping at the bit to play the very next day.

Same as the World Cup. Fans are moaning about it being mid season but I bet the players who will be involved cannot wait. And when it does start the fans who are moaning will probably watch every game.

8.) 22 Jul 2022 12:58:42
Again, not everybody JK. The only reason to watch the current crop of international teams would be if England were any good.

Unfortunately with the ‘talking head’ in charge and his preference to play 3 or 4 right backs whenever we play and his insistence on picking Maguire and his reliance on any number of permutations of about 4 or 5 overrated midfielders (mostly adored by the Southern press) it just isn’t worth watching.

Plus, from a social perspective, people should demonstrate their hatred of slave labour and general homophobic attitudes by not supporting / participating / watching the FIFA money making charade.

9.) 22 Jul 2022 13:31:26
WDW 100% get what you’re saying mate. But I almost guarantee the World Cup will be watched by hundreds of millions world wide and not one single player (including all LFC players) will pull out of playing in it because of such reasons.

10.) 22 Jul 2022 17:19:56
WDW, while we may fully agree with you about "people should demonstrate their hatred of slave labour and general homophobic attitudes" (I'm assuming you're referring to the upcoming World Cup and its hosts), I suggest you first have a talk with the FA. They've allowed (with their blessings) for foreign owners (from the same region) to come in with their money and buy Hull City, Manchester City, Newcastle United, Sheffield FC., and Aston Villa. You can throw the owner of Everton in as well, but he is technically Iranian (however, their government is not too different in human rights and homophobic practices) . You can remonstrate as much you want, but if the FA is not going to listen then not much to do about it. Until it is no longer politically tenable, as has happened with Abramovich. First you take the money then you throw them out like criminals, when it's politically expedient. (When he arrived, he was a hero from an authoritarian repressive country. Same country today. But he's been hounded out like a criminal) .

11.) 22 Jul 2022 17:31:41
Why stop there. We have owners along as many other clubs who come from countries where they seem to accept children being shot in schools.

12.) 22 Jul 2022 22:05:02
JK23 I like a lot of your posts but that comment is terrible and probably offensive to many.

13.) 22 Jul 2022 22:35:28
Billy it’s not meant to be offensive mate. If we’re against governments who still condone slavery and homophobia why aren’t we also against governments who appear to look the other way when there are horrendous school shootings on a weekly basis.

Only today it’s being reported that they are putting bulletproof desks into schools out there.

I find the fact that parents are having to send their children into that kind of environment the offensive part mate.

14.) 23 Jul 2022 01:24:06
I don't know about WDW, but what I was alluding to is the sheer hypocrisy of those in positions of decision making and political power that make our societies run. You want club owners from clean, democratic, benevolent countries? Then declare it and execute it. You want safe schools for your children? Then outlaw the guns that make them unsafe. Nearly all of us will agree on what is offensive, inhumane and despicable to human life. That's not the issue.

15.) 23 Jul 2022 07:55:09
Agreed Aray,
I live in the US and despair about the ridiculous gun laws, I swear that guns are seen as more important than kids by some people.
It's also an interesting point you raise about owners, we can end up in the old "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter" argument and who decides what countries owners can come from?
Also worth mentioning that plenty of people from "clean, benevolent democratic" countries are total rubbishs who you wouldn't want owning your club!

16.) 23 Jul 2022 08:30:11
Aray mate my comment wasn’t a dig at you I was actually jumping on your bandwagon to raise the point.

As I read your comment it was actually about a minute after I had just heard on the news the bullet proof desks and I kind of vented my disgust over your post.

I 100% agree with what you said and without turning this great site into a political one I also agree with everything Otts has said.

17.) 23 Jul 2022 11:58:51
JK23, I didn't take it as a dig at all. We know each other on here too long, to get personal. We're just discussing, debating and exchanging views. It may get heated at times, but we're still part of this amazing LFC community. That's how I see it.

18.) 23 Jul 2022 13:01:29
Aray exactly mate. I just wanted to clear up any confusion on my behalf if there was any.

Doesn't get much more official than a post from ST.

Massive Gomez fan and hopefully this is a sign that he's part of our long term plans and this isn't just a deal to make sure we get more value when selling him.

Let's see the lad press on and push for a starting place next season!

Nat Phillips and Konate at the back for the next 10 years, zero goals conceded in that time. We'll be fine.

Everything coming from the same source.

Apparently Mane and Gnabry share an agent too, reports about both players wanting new contracts recently and now a convenient rumour about a swap deal.

Maybe I'm wrong, but wouldn't be surprised if this is just the agent drumming up some rumours to help with contract negotiations for his respective clients.

With 5 subs next season its abit more feasible to have more quality in the team and still keep players happy.

We do have Carvalho, Elliot, Jones next season though so that is a few spaces in the team to take up.

Only just started it but its basically a week by week diary of the whole of last season, he mentions transfers, job offers he gets, as well as insights into meetings etc.

Arteta offered him to be his assistant at Arsenal when he started!

Its pretty interesting, last preseason Ben Woodburn played really well and Pep was desperate to keep him and have him in the team as he knew the system and developed very well. makes you wonder what could have been if Pep had his way.

Just getting started but I think it'll be an interesting read, certainly for the doubters who need the reassurance that we're building something special behind the scenes!

Have been very impressed with Bajcetic too, he's a very young lad but he has the quality Fabinho has to tackle well and stretch his legs to nick the ball, obviously started out as a defender so isn't scared to get stuck in and actually tackles well which is rare for a young midfielder. Also pretty tidy with the ball, I'd expect him to feature this season as soon as we get some kind cup draws.

AB has 4 or 5 years in him, by which point Kelleher will be in his late 20s.
I think he's far too good to want to wait around to be 1st choice and I don't think we could get away with loaning him for 3 or 4 years. maybe we can be clever with a buy back clause.
I expect he'll leave soonish personally.

He'll be fine, I worry about the spotlight on him and every 'mistake' being pulled up but i guess it was always expected.
Please let's just be patient, He'll a very good player and he'll be fine!
