I'm hearing that Klopp has resigned anyone else hear anything?


1.) 13 Feb 2021 20:42:23
I've seen the tweet from Sky Sports News and it's from a blag Sky Sports account. Some people lead sad and pathetic life's that they would go to that trouble.

2.) 13 Feb 2021 21:37:27
It’s all the little sticky sock virgins out spreading nonsense!



30 Jan 2021 12:19:39
Anyone know much about Issa Diop he's only 24 but why is he not getting in the West Ham team?


{Ed002's Note - Craig Dawson playing well has forced ID out of the picture at the moment.}

1.) 30 Jan 2021 12:39:54
Is he any good Ed's? Not seen him play.

{Ed001's Note - Issa Diop player profile

2.) 30 Jan 2021 13:11:39
A compentant CB as the profile says but not £20 million compentant as is being suggested?

3.) 30 Jan 2021 13:16:44
Cheers ed, would you be happy with him as a stop gap?

{Ed001's Note - he would do a job, certainly better than Mustafi. He is a decent back up that's for sure, so yes.}

4.) 30 Jan 2021 13:08:47
Thanks both Eds.

5.) 30 Jan 2021 13:22:05
Ed002 Just reading back on Diop you previously said not to hold our breath about him arriving. Does this still stand or possibly changed because of the injury’s?

{Ed002's Note - One of his representatives has said clubs had been asking about Diop's availability and that included Liverpool, but I am not aware of West Ham looking to sell him knowing that Reed has just returned from loan and Balbuena will become a Free Agent in the summer. They still want James Tarkowski but there is nothing looking like that will happen in the next few days.}

6.) 30 Jan 2021 14:21:03
What exactly is £20m competent these days? Remember Harry Maguire went for £80.i'd say Diop is d best of d crap we've been linked with. Mustafi in a L'pool jersey is the stuff of nightmares.

{Ed047's Note - no way he’d look lush in one of your shirts!

7.) 30 Jan 2021 14:26:17
West ham need a striker. Straight swap divock for diop everyine happy. Tell me there's a chance ed002.

{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely.}

8.) 30 Jan 2021 14:41:43
Roman saiss was not on the squad with the wolves team. Hope Saiss is also one of lfc centre back shortlist on this january ed. He's better than diop and mustafi.

9.) 30 Jan 2021 14:56:42
I think Saiss is injured as opposed to anything to do with us.

10.) 30 Jan 2021 18:13:56
Any legs to this one Ed’s?

{Ed002's Note - I explained what I know in the post.}



19 Jan 2021 13:03:16
I see the Everton youngsters like the senior players are trained in the art of attempting to end careers. That tackle in the U23 game last night was nothing short of disgraceful.


{Ed025's Note - i have not seen it rudder but by all accounts its terrible..

1.) 19 Jan 2021 14:17:21
It was terrible. Good defending by Sepp and Billy though Rudder 🤙 Lewtas was rightly proud of them after the game.

2.) 19 Jan 2021 17:47:03
Lets not go there again, it’s beyond boring now.

{Ed025's Note - good idea KR..

3.) 19 Jan 2021 19:04:00
Exactly ED25, where does it stop? I don’t hear too many reds going on about when Carragher nearly snapped Nani in half and some of the tackles Souness and Gerard made over the years.

Although I do admit, the game has gone so soft these days it’s cringe on toast to watch.

Imagine Pat Van Der Howe playing now? His rota would be one game on, 12 games off, 3 months in Nick

Bring back those days, that’s what I say.

{Ed025's Note - yeah KR its a game for snowflakes now, tommy smith and jimmy case threw more punches than tyson fury and would complain if they got booked mate.. :)

4.) 19 Jan 2021 19:19:07
Imagine Peter Reid marking Jack Grealish?

VAR would need a sequel.

{Ed025's Note - love it mate..

5.) 19 Jan 2021 19:41:41
I remember having to take my youngest all the way to JJB in Chester to get a signed copy of Graeme Sharpes book in his full Liverpool kit, to get a picture of them together.

The Derby’s were full bloodied back then, but the mutual respect after I thought was commendable, it was never as toxic as it has now become. It’s such a shame IMO the way the game has gone.

The FA Cup finals were my best away day memories . only cos we had to muck into together in the VIP bit on the train that we hadn’t paid for lol.

6.) 19 Jan 2021 19:45:05
There is not much better in football than watching Grealish in pain clutching the part of his shin where his shin pads should be but aren’t.
Apart from Neymar crying (actual real tears)



11 Oct 2020 23:14:19
If it's true we are in negotiations to sign Butland makes me think Allison is going to be out a lot longer than 4 to 6 weeks we are being told.


1.) 12 Oct 2020 09:25:46
No it's crap.

2.) 15 Oct 2020 17:24:06
He can't even get in the Stoke team.



04 May 2020 10:16:57
So John Cross reporting the teams in the bottom six are against resuming the PL in neutral venues. They would only be for it if there was no relegation. What exactly would be the point of resuming? I know what ever happens won't please everyone but to reward teams for failure wouldn't sit right with me. Then who's to say we don't get a second wave during the 20/ 21 season is relegation going to be of the table again?


1.) 04 May 2020 11:22:21
Premier League should schedule all matches at which ever stadium they see fit and if any team refuses to play it award 3 points to the opposition and 0 to the team refusing to play then tick off the games as completed.
If both teams refuse to play award both teams 0 points and tick off the game as being completed.
Pretty sure that the bottom 6 will not refuse to play then.
They may already have the above powers in the rules anyway.

2.) 04 May 2020 11:20:21
I think it is a complete disgrace by the bottom clubs to try to utilise the situation to keep themselves in the premier league. They are in the position they are in justly and if things do resume and it is an if all teams should have the same risk and reward as normal otherwise what is the point in the potential health risk?

Shocking behaviour from the clubs they should be named and shamed and their decision makers put in the stocks and pelted with rotten fruit and veg.

Ok seriously though very poor from those clubs and they should be ashamed of themselves. Another Karen Brady moment of yes let's use the situation to stop us getting relegated.

{Ed002's Note - Just to clarify this, the matter has not been discussed at PL level. There are two rtop six clubs objecting as well. Clearly it is pointless my trying to make the effort to explain the situation on this page as it just ends up with ignorant posts such as this.}

3.) 04 May 2020 13:58:39
Well I don't know what the issue is with the 2 top 6 teams, because firstly i don't know who they are but I can't be a pure coincidence that the bottom 6 clubs are all of the same thinking. Come on, nobody can sell sell this as nothing but self preservation. Which is fine and nothing more than I would expect. The money in the PL is massive for these teams.

{Ed002's Note - You see everything as some sort of conspiracy - the two at the top see the same problem with others toward the bottom - they do not want to lose home advantage.}

4.) 04 May 2020 15:03:26
Ed2 where did my hug post go, we are still mates.

5.) 04 May 2020 17:44:07
Home advantage is a weak argument during this situation. The main advantage is the fans getting behind the team, driving the team forward, even if games are played in there own stadiums, there will be no fans.

Prime example of home advantage recently ( from our pint of view ) is Liverpool needing 4 goals to beat Barcelona In order to progress to the final of the European Cup.

I’ve been to Palace away and it’s like a cauldron when they need to get behind the team, the place is rocking! Without the fans there would be no intimidation at Selhurst Park.

{Ed002's Note - That is not what a number of the teams think.}

6.) 04 May 2020 18:56:05
Agree completely with the OP.

7.) 05 May 2020 09:38:35
The home advantage will be more than just fans. facilities routine and also distance will be key. For home games I'd imagine players meet at the training ground and travel in together in some instances, that feeling can't be replicated at neutral venues.

{Ed001's Note - and familiarity with the ground helps. You would know the places where the lumps and bumps are on the pitch. You would be particularly used to distances and judging them quickly, which is a major advantage for passing the ball over longer distances.}

8.) 05 May 2020 10:14:51
That’s very true ed001, also was it stoke who used to narrow the pitch as much as possible, within the rules, to hem the opponents in? There’s plenty of unseen benefits to playing at home.

However I do think sacrifices will need to be made and can understand why the bottom 6 are unwilling as the consequences are huge. But I really don’t think we should continue if relegation is taken off the table as there is very little point.

{Ed001's Note - this is why the participants in a sport should never be the people to set up the rules it is played by or make the decisions. They have vested interests to protect of their own, rather than just doing what is best for the sport as a whole. This is why an independent body should run football, a difficult decision is needed and an independent body would do so.}

9.) 05 May 2020 10:41:19
That’s a very good point never considered it like that.

IF relegation is taken off the table and they want football to continue, I would draw a line as the table sits and break it into play offs for European places.

RelegatIon should only be ruled out if the league cannot continue.

10.) 05 May 2020 11:24:04
The Government advice is that; if neutral venues are used, it will be stadiums that are outside of city centres. This means places where the police can control any possible crowds coming to the stadium. Places Like the Olympic Stadium.

It is simply not going to happen that all stadiums are used, so somebody will have to accept a neutral venue any how.

That is, if the season is played out.

11.) 05 May 2020 18:14:24
I think that the best option IF we are to restart the Premier League, and the teams may go with this.

Only relegate two teams; Leeds and West Brom get promoted. This would mean that the two getting relegated could receive 50% more parachute payment as the Premier League are saving by not relegating a third team and therefore awarding 50% more to the teams that do go down, wouldn't cost a penny.

It would also mean that no playoffs need to be played, and thus reducing the number of matches that need to be played.

I know it doesn't suit absolutely everybody, but I'm sure that Norwich would take it just for the extra 50% as they're pretty much gone.

I also realise that it's a bit out there. Is there any possibility of something along this scenario being proposed, Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - The Premier League have not yet discussed how to end the season if the games cannot be paid but are aware of what other countries have done and what plans have been made by those who are looking to resume. There is nothing along these lines.}

What are FSG doing? This development will surely see us taken out of the Premier League. Surely this move is to try and get more control over the Champions League? I'm really annoyed at our owners at this point.


1.) 18 Apr 2021 16:57:34
Mate if it does go ahead, better for us to be in that out so can’t be too mad.

{Ed002's Note - Even though it would see the club excluded from all UEFA and FIFA competition and kicked out of the Premier League. It is for now another option on the table and one that will be used to try and gain leverage with UEFA by certain clubs.}

2.) 18 Apr 2021 17:13:02
I don't agree Josh. The PL is where we should be. We have a challenge to make the CL for next season involving a few teams. That's what makes it exciting.

3.) 18 Apr 2021 17:25:14
Rumour has it its all Naby Keita's idea.

4.) 18 Apr 2021 17:46:25
This going to get messy.



06 Apr 2021 18:43:21
Keita and Jota in Thiago and Bobby on bench.


1.) 06 Apr 2021 18:45:59
Im not keen on the Naby for Thiago swap but let's hope he has a good game, Jota had to start.

2.) 06 Apr 2021 19:31:25
I love it.

3.) 06 Apr 2021 18:46:04
Just commented the same mate. Strange one Naby starting. Especially as Thiago is excellent in Europe.

4.) 06 Apr 2021 18:48:08
Yes I'm suprised at that. Just have to see does it work.

5.) 06 Apr 2021 19:46:52
Naby will be boss.

6.) 06 Apr 2021 19:53:23
Keita is a waste of a shirt, game is made for someone of Thiago’s ability.

7.) 06 Apr 2021 19:55:03
Jurgen rotates innermids for two games a week. Thiago started the league so unlikely to start again tonight.

8.) 06 Apr 2021 20:42:10
“Naby will be boss”. Could not be further from reality or truth. He’s been awful. Giving the ball away, giving cheap fouls, not pressing, looks several yards off the pace and as if he’s never met his team mates before. He needs shipping out this summer.



11 Mar 2021 10:16:28
Good win and enjoyed watching Thiago in his usual role. He's a class act. Of course it wouldn't of been possible without Fabinho in midfield. Oh how we've missed him.


1.) 11 Mar 2021 12:43:10
Yeah fab was excellent and so to thiago. And even give praise to gini. actually showed up when given the arm band. Good performance by all. Well played lads.



05 Mar 2021 07:54:59
Woke up this morning hoping it was a bad dream. Nope it's real. We are still in relegation form. Those players should be ashamed of themselves. Cowards each and everyone of them hiding from actually taking a game by the scruff of the neck.


1.) 05 Mar 2021 08:21:25
Klopp has said this is down to fine margins. I would agree. Those fine margins are the repeated errors he is making choosing the midfield 3 with Gini at 6.They are simply not good enough to protect the defence or to create enough space for the front 3 to shine. It has been this way for several months and i am now deeply concerned how Klopp cannot see this.

Also, we bought a CB in January who has pace apparently, yet he has not featured for a single minute? Given how bad our form has been by those chosen to play, can someone explain that to me?

Klopp, please just pick your two best CB's (not a midfielder to fill in), put Fabs back at 6, integrate Jota and let's really go at teams again. What has we got to lose now?

2.) 05 Mar 2021 08:49:20
Conslfc, I read somewhere that both Davies and Phillips were injured BUT I hope the Ed's can clarify this for us. That said, I fully agree with you that Klopp shares the bulk of the blame here. That midfield 3 should never play together again as there was NO protection for the bock 4 esp. with Gini in the 6. Chelsea's midfield are already pretty good and if you leave them the boulevards worth of space and room we left them then, we were really asking for it.

Also, our press was disjointed for the most part hence, easy to pass through and since no DM in midfield, we were ripe for the taking. Klopp also messed up his subs leaving Mane who was poor all game long, on the pitch and subbed our only goal source in Salah. I knew right there that Klopp's head was gone. Ox came on and was inexistent and how Bobbie finished that game, I have no idea.



28 Feb 2021 15:20:31
Hopefully we see a change in midfield today. I despair when i see Thiago, Gini and Jones together it just doesn't work. It's probably to soon for Jota so we will have to endure a badly out of form Firmino. Sheffield United have their own injury problems so hopefully we can get 3 pts.


1.) 28 Feb 2021 16:15:30
We have to have Fabinho in the middle, so at least our defenders have some protection.

2.) 28 Feb 2021 16:22:24
I don't see why we can't play firmino in midfield as the most attacking midfielder in a 3, 4 or 5 after all he was bought as an attacking midfielder, we need to start reinventing his position as it has become stale.

3.) 28 Feb 2021 16:24:16
If he's fit to play i think Klopp will play him CB unfortunately.

4.) 28 Feb 2021 16:58:21
Rudder I think Bobby would be a cracking centre back.

{Ed077's Note - you mean Bobby Fischer?;)}

5.) 28 Feb 2021 17:32:28
Well we've tried almost everyone there so i wouldn't be suprised.

6.) 28 Feb 2021 18:24:21
Apparently Adrian is starting tonight. Might as well just give Sheffield United a two goal head start and be done with it.

7.) 28 Feb 2021 18:34:33
I just saw Adrian's name. jesus it's bad. No confidence in him at all. I hope he has a blinder though but based on his last few outings. please win lads!

Team Alisson, TAA, Philips, Kabak, Robertson, Fabinho, Gini, Thiago, Jota, Mane, Salah. I can't see them putting three or four past us.
