Hi Ed's and Reds,
I love football and loved the though of Liverpool winning the PL for the first time. But I am firmly of the opinion that this season should be cancelled and whether that means there is an * next to our title or our title is not awarded is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. And the thought of all the exceptions being made to accommodate football coming back when the rest of society is still struggling leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I just wondered how many people are in this camp, or how many want football to resume this season? And if it does return and fans congregate outside stadiums then there should be severe repercussions.


{Ed002's Note - Whilst efforts are being made to return to completing the season it remains difficult to see how it can be done - particularly now with clubs pushing to avoid the use of neutral stadiums. The lack of any plan to define how the season would end if it cannot be completed remains a concern although that is due to be discussed by the clubs on Monday. As for fans outside of stadiums, only one club has defined a means to stop it but they are well placed to do so due to the logistics of the stadium. In other cases it will not be so easy, although Liverpool have said they have spoken with the fan groups who apparently say they will stay away - but of course Liverpool have a habit of lying about such matters. The mayors of three cities were consulted and all has said they are not ready to have football return so soon. Medically the advice is against it, and the police are against it but are willing to listen to proposals. There will be issues over public transport as well.}

The economy needs football back the public need football back even to put a smile back on our faces in these times let's getit on when safe to do so and we claim our 1st of many titles plus a hate sitting in the house on a sat afternoon.

I can’t speak for everyone but for me I honestly can’t see what the point of fans turning up for games is. To be stood outside a stadium not being able to see or hear anything. It’s not like they will hear a goal go in 🤷🏻‍♂️. I would be more than happy to stay at home and enjoy watching the games with a nice cold beer. For me I would love to see this season completed and competed when deemed safe to do so. I’m a key worker and travel some distance to work. Over the last 7 days you would think that lockdown is over seeing the amount of people on the roads, in city’s and using public transport. I hope all Ed’s and posters are doing well and remain safe.

Your opinion is valid Red89.
I’m of the opposite view, I’d like to see football restart if possible.
The debate is unclear at the moment.
Those against seem to be split between safety and relegation / financial concerns.
The safety protocols have to be robust and deliverable especially if the neutral grounds option is taken away.
Much of the argument seems to be being driven by those with most to lose, the clubs threatened with the drop.
They should not be allowed to control the process.
As for fans gathering, it’s not easy to control.
We’ve already seen the CPS criticise the Police for wrongful action, and the law is becoming even more greyer as time progresses and the lockdown is eased.
The situation come late June or in July may allow more movement by then too.

A lot of us have not considered the value of medical advice versus the leadership of policy makers. By all accounts we are stricken by a virus for which a vaccine is unlikely for another 12-18 months. Governments around the world will sooner or later have to decide how to reopen the countries in a phased manner before the damage to economies becomes terminal.

When the reopening occurs many of us will be left wondering as to what was the point of the lockdowns in the first place. Certainly UK and US will come out looking horribly due to our half-arsed lockdowns which neither curbed the virus nor saved our economies.

In the backdrop of all this we will be left wondering whether the media hysteria played a part in exaggerating the people's perception of the danger of this virus. The same people who binge eat, drink, chain smoke and generally disregard medical are hyper-focused on the advice right now, but will be made to look slightly stupid when they are forced back to work by BoJo in a couple months time.

I'm not suggesting that the virus isn't serious. I'm just inviting people to think critically about true ramifications of overreaction fueled by the media frenzy. Instead of tanking the economy why not put in place robust methods to fight the virus, through contact tracing, educating families to identify and isolate vulnerable groups, and even preparing somewhat strong methods for dispersion of fans from outside stadiums.

{Ed033's Note - Good points. Let's start moving forward.

What gobrubbishs are going to gather outside the stadium to see or hear nothing. No pubs open. Nowhere to watch the game, Surely "fans" want to see their teams play. I don't get why thousands we ould gather for nothing.

Can't wait to sign Redmond next season. Joking aside I think mane is what we need, something different to what we have and can add better support for our strikers. Probably spells the end for one of the CAMs. Then time for a slim down of the squad. Keep up the hard work eds, much appreciated.


1.) 25 Jun 2016 19:17:00
Redmond is for summer 2018.

As someone that has never seen zielinski play. Could someone offer me an opinion of him? What type of player he is? What he could offer to the team? Etc, etc. Cheers all.

Zielinski in review:

A strong, skillful and direct runner from midfield, with sublime vision and good set piece delivery. Lacking in some defensive areas though. His mistimed tackles saw him banned twice last season for an indirect red card, and accumulating too many yellow cards. In total he got 5 stand alone bookings, plus the 2 in one match which got him sent off.

Of the 35 league games that Zielinski played last season for Empoli they won 12. A win rate of about 35%. Of the 3 games he missed, Empoli lost all 3 games and only managed 1 goal in the process. Zielinski was their key man in midfield when it came to initiating attacks and creating goal scoring opportunities. He created 52 chances in total. His ambition didn't damage his pass completion rate though as he maintained a respectable 82%. Without him in the side, Empoli were a much worse side.

His finishing is good for a 22 year old midfielder, but still needs work. He took 64 shots in total, with 22 on target and 30 off target. A further 12 were blocked so are excluded from his shot accuracy of 42%. In total he managed 5 goals from the 52 shots that weren't blocked, so his conversion rate is approximately 9%.

Despite his tackling needing work, he still managed an average output of 3 defensive actions per game and didn't make a single defensive error in his 35 games. He made a total of 55 interceptions, 45 clearances and 5 blocks. His tackle success rate sits at lowly 44%. He attempted a massive 124 tackles, but only 54 came off and 36 of them resulted in a free kick for the opposition. Despite standing at 1.8m tall, he also doesn't win many headers. In 58 duels, he only won 19 which represents just a 33% success rate.

He drags his overall duel success up though with his brilliant take on success. He attempted 131 take ons with 89 coming off at a 68% success rate. He is so difficult to stop that teams tend to just take him out. He won 31 free kicks.

In conclusion, he is an excellent offensive midfielder who can run with the ball just as effectively as he can pass it, but he needs to improve his tackling and finishing. His biggest strength though is going forward as he starts a lot of attacks and creates a lot of chances. He would definitely compliment Henderson and Can in a 3 man midfield, as whilst they are both very capable players, neither possess the skill and attacking flair that Zielinski boasts.

Thanks a lot mate.

Joe Allen with more pace.

4.) 12 Jun 2016 22:29:37
Nothing like Joe Allen. More like a poor mans Pogba.

Just wondered what people would think of Lucien Favre as a potential Rodgers replacement in the club decide to swing the axe.


1.) 22 Sep 2015 23:16:15
Lost 6 games in a row this season. No real pedigree. No thanks. Get proven pedigree in. Same goes for players. We need a top player magnet.

2.) 23 Sep 2015 07:35:35
Well klopp had an awful season last year, not saying he's an awful manager at all but even good managers have rough spells. And the job favre did at his club was brilliant he coaches good football too

3.) 23 Sep 2015 11:04:48
I think Favre is a very good manager, and did really well with Gladbach and Hertha Berlin, getting them CL footy with limited budget and no real star players. He is a very astute man tactically, though very moody and eccentric apparently. He has quit before when he felt he couldn't turn things around.

What's the point having a buy back clause for a player that doesn't want to be here.

Not sure the Harry Kane comparison is valid atm. He looks a good, strong, quick striker, but I wouldn't go comparing him to others just yet

There is no agenda, you can't blame the referee for giving a correct decision. We were awful after the sending off and had zero organisation in defence and midfield. Like why do our full backs bomb forward when the ball Is not fully under our control? Why did our midfield not put pressure on the ball when our defenders were high? These are questions that should be asked about the game not wether there's a conspiracy against us. We create our own problems.

Agree with your review in the main but wijnaldum was very significant in defence and attack yesterday. I think before yesterday's game he did look like a bit of a passenger but the lad made a few important contributions and will hopefully push on from here. Good interesting read though.

He didn't really trash him he only said he should have gone a long time ago. Your generalisation of people seems quite unnecessary as well. People have opinions, yes I agree with you that they shouldn't trash players/ staff but if someone is paid very handsomely to do a job most of us dream of I'm sure a bit of criticism doesn't keep them up at night. I think you are scaremongering people into not sharing an opinion. No need to be so aggressive, try and stay calm ed, life is easier that way. Have a good day sir/ madam.


{Ed002's Note - He was speaking from a position of complete ignorance and adopting the standard approach to vomit over everyone associated with the club. It is a club with no respect for other club any longer, with a large proportion of the fan base who have no respect for the club or their staff. Nor seemingly anyone else if the record breaking number of levied charges are anything to go by.

Please feel free to continue through life as a DF thinking everything is just fine.}

You confuse me at times ed02. When someone says an employee isn't good enough you slate them for saying it. And when they say how good an employee is (ie Klopp) you slate them for that as well. It's like unless someone's completely on the fence you want to criticise them, I don't understand it myself. Keep up the good work though, your time and knowledge is appreciated.


{Ed002's Note - No. There are a lot of fans who do not have any grasp of reality or any understanding of the game at all. They worship Klopp and everything he does because they are deluded lemmings and, being football fans, almost certainly as dumb as a box of rocks. All I have done is explained the truth to them. It really shouldn't be difficult to understand, but I guess you being a football fan ....}

The only difference would be the temporary visas they would need to play in the countries wouldn't it ED?


{Ed002's Note - For some but not for others - as it is now.}
