Ed2, I can't see us buying anybody this window because we're skint. Where is the money coming from for the summer transfer window? or are we going to have to sell big to buy big?

{Ed002's Note - Clubs need to balance the books - Liverpool spent last summer accumulating debt. They have plenty of players that can be sold to refresh but it is critical that they resolve their squad management issues with HG and Club Developed players.}


1.) 07 Jan 2021 03:31:44
We need to start selling fringe players for realistic prices, and we need to do this fast. Otherwise where is the money for players we actually need going to come from?
Origi, Adrian, Keita, Shaq, Milner, Larouci, karius, Awoniyi, Wilson, Ojo, Woodburn, Millar, Grujic etc.
We have been holding on to these players too long where they are either sat warming the bench eating up huge paychecks or getting fared out on pointless loans with no end in sight.
Very poor squad management imo. No wonder the club's wage bill is through the roof and we don't have money to spare for transfers.
West Ham r about to sell Haller to Ajax. Commonsense dictates we test the waters and offer them Origi for 15 million pounds and see if they bite. We need money for a CB now by hook or crook.


2.) 07 Jan 2021 07:10:07
Bang out of order to include Milner on that list IB. His contract is up this summer so you’ll get your wish.

{Ed001's Note - he is contracted until summer 2022.}


3.) 07 Jan 2021 07:57:07
Milner but no ox? No way Indian.


4.) 07 Jan 2021 09:29:01
Milner is 36, why’s it bang out of order? Yes he’s a great player but he doesn’t play week in week out and will be the same next season if he stays. There’s a time when the club need to look forward. I agree ox should be on that list along with matip and phillips.


5.) 07 Jan 2021 09:55:47
The club is a business now and I’ve no doubt they will sell any player if needed to balance the books and I have no problem with this. Players want to leave all the time and won’t look back. Life moves on am afraid!


6.) 07 Jan 2021 10:57:45
If you can’t see how IB’s message is disrespectful to a great servant like Milner, then I can’t be bothered to even debate with you pegleg.


7.) 07 Jan 2021 12:19:23
'sat warming the bench eating up huge paychecks' Pegleg would you associate this with Milner? Let's give him the respect he deserves.


8.) 07 Jan 2021 13:13:14
So by your logic the club needs 11 players who play week in week out. We don't need back up players or players for rotation?


9.) 07 Jan 2021 13:49:45
I agree with ShaqAttack. Bang out of order to put loyal and decent players on a list of people we should get rid of!

In the words of Bill Shankley: "If you can't support us when we lose or draw, then don't support us when we win"

The message is "stay loyal to the club and the team at all times"

Have faith in the club who won 4 trophies for their supporters in last 12 months.


10.) 07 Jan 2021 14:48:40
I think we should keep Milner until he retires in 2022. When he signed his contract he spoke of his desire to coach at Liverpool when he hangs up his boots. He is the ultimate role model and still a very dependable player in multiple positions.


11.) 07 Jan 2021 14:52:35
the irony of your all defending one player but happy to bash the others on the list.


12.) 07 Jan 2021 15:34:05
Origi - has effectively been replaced already with Jota and Minamino, I love the guy but it's an obvious place for us to raise some funds and for him to get the move and playing time he deserves

Adrian - Has dome well but Kelleher has stepped up well. I doubt we'd get much for him though

Keita - This is the move I'd really like to see. I've always had hopes for Keita but he hasn't settled and injuries have seen him struggle to establish himself. A move could work for best for both him to reset and to raise some real funds for the club

Shaq - Hasn't played much so I'd see if we can raise anything for him and bring back Elliott

Milner - I'd keep him until he won't have us anymore!

Grujic - I'd really like to see him return and establish himself as a replacement for Gini (assuming he leaves), but I suspect he may move on unfortunately.

The rest are fringe/ kids IMO so won't get much for them.

In short, I don't see how we're likely to be a huge pool of funds unless someone like Salah were to move on.

{Ed002's Note - Adrian is out of contract in the summer - he is not going to be sold.}


13.) 07 Jan 2021 15:34:37
In what way am I being disrespectful to Milner? He is past his best, has been getting injured recently and is no longer a first team player. He is on 100k plus a week wages.
If we want to start trimming the squad, these difficult decisions need to be made. Milner has been a great servant to the club but it's time to move on. The senior players at the club like VVD, Fabinho, Alisson etc need to step up and become the leaders of the new look squad LFC will be building in the coming years.


14.) 07 Jan 2021 15:37:32
You can also add Phillips to that list. I'd keep Ox simply for the HG quota and Matip coz I doubt Klopp wants to overhaul the CB department in one go.


15.) 07 Jan 2021 18:22:33
Milner is a role model to the youth can play multiple roles in the squad and also fittest player every pre season he's a example to everyone else.


16.) 08 Jan 2021 14:11:49
Td red, where have I said that? I do t think he meant to put Milner in the bracket I certainly don’t. I think he’s a great player who’s served us well but unfortunately at his age he can be improved on. I’m also happy to see him stay but don’t get half the fans when they’re happy to see the likes of gini leave but cry over the mention of Milner going.


17.) 09 Jan 2021 09:39:20
The way I see it, we got VVD, Gomez to return to join Matip, Nat, Rhys and the kids. I still think we have more then enough cover in the CB position unless we are going to overspend to have 10 players per position.


18.) 09 Jan 2021 21:49:36
1) we don’t when VVD/ Gomez return to full match fitness never mind if.
2) Matip is hugely injury prone. Even if he does make it back for Utd game no doubt he’ll be injured again soon.
3) Philips wouldn’t be here if a buyer coulda been found in the summer. Wasn’t even included in CL squad. Contract up in summer.
4) Vast majority of supporters didn’t know Rhys existed start of the season. Was playing non league football 10mths ago. Not ready to be starting Prem league week in week out.
5) If Philips and Rhys was ready to be regular centrebacks then we wouldn’t need Hendo starting there. And I really don’t want to see Hendo starting there again.

Firmino back in training today! get in lad! He's going to be so crucial in the final. Speaking of the final, is it me or is time dragging like hell? I just want it to be here already!


1.) 21 May 2019 18:34:13
I agree Salah, two weeks without football is killing me.


2.) 21 May 2019 19:06:40
I’ve resorted to watching highlights of all the games this season.


3.) 21 May 2019 20:20:03
Robbo seems to be okay as well.

Have seen a couple of photos of him there and he looked happy.


4.) 21 May 2019 20:40:23
Seems very long to me. Was there such a gap last year?


5.) 21 May 2019 21:01:09
Dragging like hell. Glad Firmino will be fit to play just hope he plays a lot better than he did in last years final.


6.) 21 May 2019 21:33:34
Welcome back Bobby!
We need those big white teeth on that pitch in Madrid 🔴
Cannot wait for the next Saturday, i need to try and keep calm till then. it's building up though!

YNWA!


7.) 21 May 2019 21:54:22
Doesn't anyone think that origi is a bit of a good omen for us in Europe he could have a big impact, I remember the Dortmund game home an away his form then was great then got injured obviously, but he seems too perform well in cup games for us an when he comes on or slots in, if Bobby ain't on it origi deserves a shot!


8.) 21 May 2019 23:35:57
Sunday was the worst for me, chest infection and no footy to watch : (
I know I was feverish but nearly put the SPL on!


9.) 22 May 2019 08:35:54
I'm glad there's a long gap if it means Firmino and Robbo get fit to play. Same doesn't apply to Kane though!


10.) 22 May 2019 09:26:34
We are always sluggish after long breaks though. Baffles me why the final isn't sooner.


11.) 23 May 2019 11:00:18
Italian and French leagues still have one game to go this weekend. Plus the German and Spanish Cup Finals are on this Saturday. I guess they expected clubs from some of those four leagues to be in the final. They were wrong.

Ejaria to return to Liverpool early, I wonder if he will go elsewhere on loan in January?


1.) 16 Dec 2018 00:37:17
It's concerning that the word going around is that Ejaria left Rangers, and the Scottish league, due to it being too physical.

Hopefully that accusation is nothing more than slander because, if it is true, then that does not bode well for Ejaria's prospects. Every league is physical and you cannot carefully tip toe your way around numerous heavy handed challenges. I doubt many teams will risk bringing him in for fear he might not be willing to win those vital 50/ 50's.

Once again, I hope it is just a rumour because from what I have seen he is a decent player. A technically gifted young man who, at one point, I thought might get a game or two in the first team after a number of positive pre-season performances.

Fingers crossed wherever Ejaria goes he becomes more settled. whether that be Liverpool or somewhere else.


2.) 16 Dec 2018 08:48:02
Its rather telling that Stevie G sent him back, I doubt that will look good on his report card. The lad will need to pull his socks up and sort himself out as that was a bloody good opportunity at a good club with the right manager thrown away.


3.) 17 Dec 2018 00:13:15
Any chance it was a knee jerk reaction to a bad week for rangers? Meh, I’m a hoops fan so whatever.


 

 

04 Dec 2018 08:19:56
Hi Ed2, was wondering if there's any chance of you doing a sharkopod anytime soon?

{Ed002's Note - Sure but Ian in the middle of three weeks travel right now so it will newer to the holidays.}


1.) 04 Dec 2018 09:26:51
Fantastic Ed2, thank you, will look forward to that.

{Ed002's Note - No problem}


2.) 04 Dec 2018 10:17:45
Wow nice! Thanks Ed002!


3.) 04 Dec 2018 12:55:43
Ed002 will you be including a trip to the North Pole to see Santa on you travels?

Hope you have some quality down time in your time away.

{Ed002's Note - perhaps I should.}


 

 

21 Oct 2018 00:01:33
I see a lot of moaning going on which is fair enough, everybody has the right to speak their minds but I urge you to think about the most important thing and it's we're joint top of the league undefeated.

It's too easy to have a good moan, believe me I get it. We've not being playing the best football, far from it anyway but we're getting the results. Can we continue playing like this? sure we can, it's working somehow. I expected us to absolutely destroy Huddersfield but we didn't and that's that, it was hard to watch because of how poorly we played BUT we got the three points.

I have no idea what's going on in the background, I don't really think anything is going on, I don't think there's any issues I just think for some odd reason we're taking a bit longer than usual to get back into it, we're on what? game 9? it's a matter of time before the lads start to pull it together but even if they don't, there's no complaining from me why? because we're getting the 3 points from the teams last year we'd of drew against.

Onwards and upwards, good things are coming, we've made progress already, trust Klopp, trust the team and believe because that bloody title is finally ours this season, note this comment and quote me at the end of the season, it's happening.

I hope you are all doing very well.


1.) 21 Oct 2018 00:49:52
Good post mate.
Playing bad and anything near the top is amazing. At some point it will all click in to place and we will take some stopping. It’s great that we won’t have to play catch when this happens.


2.) 21 Oct 2018 01:59:14
Good post Salah mate. I knew Huddesfield wasn’t going to be easy.

My concern is how jaded and tired we looked.

{Ed0333's Note - for me the biggest issue is the three up top can’t for whatever reason string a simple through ball or a pass together for love nor money. They are playing as if they are drunk. We know they can be devestating on the counter and as soon as they remember how to pass well be ok. I have no idea why the cohesion isn’t there but one thing for sure is that well get better rather than regress.


3.) 21 Oct 2018 08:19:38
I agree with you salah, i think playing diff style so we don't burn out nesr end of the season, i think after xmas we will push on and see the hard press footy, klopp knows city can go all season playing like they do, so we are pkaying poorly but still joint top i will take that every season till klopp gets his full team he wants. ynwa.


4.) 21 Oct 2018 08:27:23
Suppose we all got spoiled last year with our attacking brilliance, this year we seem too get a goal or 2 then we sit back and rely on our new defensive quality, that midfield is good but doesn't unlock defences with some guile or score enough goals, but as said we joint top we have beat spurs away an got a point at Chelsea which is 4 extra points already.


5.) 21 Oct 2018 09:29:42
We hadn’t won for 4 games so I’ll take a result like that. We need to improve and Klopp knows it 👍.


6.) 21 Oct 2018 13:24:25
I think salah looks like he needs a break. He is turning into players, his touch is off and his finishing is too. I think he is mentally drained, from last season, the injury and the Egypt fa thing. Give him a week off, recoup and come back stronger.


7.) 21 Oct 2018 13:44:19
Are we really that bad guys? I get we can be better but is it really that bad. Remember how well we played when the pressure was of off us and the boys had smiles on their faces. We know they can be better and i for 1 know they will. For now let's keep the faith up like when the Hudds fans cheered the team after they had misplaced a pass that resulted in a throw in. We only just joint 1st place and you can see the effort of the boys. It will come together soon for now let's cheer them like never before e.


8.) 21 Oct 2018 13:11:42
Bang on ed. Nothing sums it up more than when Firmino came on yesterday- we broke and he had Salah right and Shaqiri in a better position to the left. Last season you'd put your house on him finding the right pass but yesterday he just kind of rolled it to the opposition.

I think our attack needs Firmino to play well more than the others and he seems to he struggling lately. But we know his quality and I'm sure he'll play his way in to form.

{Ed0333's Note - as I say mate I’m hopeful they’ll get the telepathic incisive passing back. One things for sure it really can’t get any worse. And when it does well start beating teams comfortably. I think the ball needs to be played quicker/slicker from midfield to the ‘Fab 3’ for some unknown reason we seem to be a bit pedestrian in that department this season and our performances reflect it. Another thing that is certain Adam Lalana is not the answer. Give me all the stick you want but I’m not a fan and he’s not even worthy of a place on the bench. I’d rather have Curtis Jones.


9.) 21 Oct 2018 19:25:03
Completely agree with you on that Ed regarding Lallana. At this level he's just not good enough and that's the harsh truth. I'm not blasting him, at one point he showed a bit of promise but now we're going for the title I really don't believe he's anywhere near good enough for us.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m not sure he’s even good enough for any top side in the Prem. You have to ask yourself would he get into the Spurs, City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal teams? He’s living on past glories and those fleeting moments of magic were absolute eons ago, and if anybody thinks he’s gonna have a Renaissance then imo your sadly mistaken. He should never have been bought in the first place by Brenda as he is what the term ‘luxury player’ was coined for. Anyway more importantly Salah how are you? I haven’t been editing for a while and think I’ve missed a major part your convalescence period. Are you up and about doing stuff outside or still house bound? Wishing you a speedy recovery to full health mate.


10.) 22 Oct 2018 06:41:44
Ed0333, I'd agree with all of that mate, well said.

Ah I'm not bad mate thank you very much for asking, things are looking good, got a few daft dr appointments this week and maybe I'll be cleared for work in a few weeks but won't be able to start until December now anyway as I have a really busy November ahead. It's been a really harsh few months but we're getting there now :) I hope life is treating you well Ed?

{Ed0333's Note - I’m good thanks Salah. I’ve been traveling quite a bit recently so haven’t been editing as much so didn’t know what all you reprobates have been getting up to. Glad things are looking up for you mate and no doctors appointment is daft when it comes to your health fella. I’m sure a few sparkling Liverpool FC performances will perk you up no end?


11.) 23 Oct 2018 10:18:59
Glad to hear you are doing well Ed mate, I had wondered where you had got to! I thought maybe Harry had got you back and captured you ;) .

Yeah you're right mate I'm just fed up of them to be honest, in and out of the Dr's like a bloody yoyo and to be honest half of it is so unnecessary but they do a great job so I shouldn't moan about them.

The worst part at the moment is I have to go and see a psychiatrist to make sure I'm fine mentally, work demanded it and I have only this morning found out I now need to do it weekly until I go back lol it's BS if you ask me mate, I'm not happy about it at all. They're only doing their jobs which I get but my god they make you depressed! I don't like the environment of it at all, mind you, the lady is a bit of alright so that's a bonus. (I hope my wife isn't reading, I'll be dead later if so ;) )

Sorry for the rant mate, I could go on and on because a lot has happened recently but I'll shut up now lol, I hope you have/ have had a great day. Stay safe Ed333, great to see you editing again mate.

Well, I'm so surprised that so many Liverpool fans have thrown in the towel and believe we have no chance of winning the league, we do have a chance and we will win it. I don't think Villa will get a draw against City, I think they'll beat them!

Mind you, we don't do things the easy way. Liverpool Wolves 1-1 until the 93rd when Origi scores the winner :) imagine?
On a serious note I think we'll beat Wolves quite comfortably. Man city will fold under the pressure. Quadruple is coming.

Believe.


1.) 19 May 2022 06:34:36
Keep the Faith.


2.) 19 May 2022 07:25:23
I really hope you’re right Salah.

To do the quadruple would be the greatest ever achievement.

For me if it was a choice between the two trophies left I’d take the premier league as I believe the players and fans are still owed that open top bus parade with it.

Saying that though if we win the league on Sunday then I can’t see anything but a win the following Sat (as long as the players don’t celebrate like they did the last one 🤣) as the confidence will be through the roof.

If we don’t win the league on Sunday then it’ll be every egg in the basket for Real and that could either make or break us.

If I had to put a big bet on I’d definitely say we’re winning at least one of them.


3.) 19 May 2022 07:47:57
I'm not a tattoo fan, but I promised my 21 year old son that I'd pay for matching tattoos for us both if we won the league undefeated a couple of seasons ago. I made that same promise a month ago if we did the quad.
I'm a graphic designer and haven't started work on the tat yet. If you're right Salah, and I so hope you are, I better get started.


4.) 19 May 2022 08:43:56
I have a feeling of what will happen, but I won't say it outloud as I'm too superstitious. I won't tempt fate.


5.) 19 May 2022 10:01:10
Aw salah mate it would be brilliant. I just don’t think they’ll fold. They held us off under similar circumstances before so I reckon they’ve the nerve to get over the line. I think West Ham caught them napping and they’d the mentality to get back into the match and somehow almost won it. I hope I’m wrong. Regardless, an incredible season despite var taking the shine off much of my love for the game.


6.) 19 May 2022 10:13:30
Ashy, I am in the same boat but I haven't even said it out loud as I know it won't happen if I do.

Football is a funny old game and anything can happen, personally I am preparing myself for it being similar to last time. Where City just romped home but we get a little bit of hope at one point or another.

But the difference this time is that city defence is depleted, villa gave us problems and If he goes two up top with Watkins and ings they could give city a headache. It has the potential to be a thrilling game I just hope villa give it a go and what will be will be.

I won't say it's over but City definitely have the upper hand and we would all prefer to be in their position then ours.


7.) 19 May 2022 10:59:13
Villa defence not at full strength either, Ezri Konsa out for rest of season. 😒.


8.) 19 May 2022 11:23:49
Happy with either EPL or Champions League trophy but really want Big Ears on the open top bus and to settle matters with Real Madrid.


9.) 19 May 2022 11:25:17
Salah, ever the optimist :) You remind me of the knight in Monty Python - it’s only a flesh wound!


10.) 19 May 2022 11:30:15
I will continue to be the eternal optimist but I just can't imagine a scenario whereby Villa, after playing tonight and without Konsa, can hold City at bay. I do think Villa can score but I just don't think they have the players to mount a rearguard. West Ham, who are much better than Villa defensively were lucky to keep the goals conceded down to 2 on Sunday. A would need a miracle and then some.


11.) 19 May 2022 11:31:06
Aoe when they held us off before they had much more experienced leaders in the team such as Kompany, Silva and Aguero with Fernandinho playing in the midfield.
They are a very different team now and not a durable as they were then in my opinion.
If Villa can just stay in the game the nerves will start to jangle and this could be a magical weekend.


12.) 19 May 2022 11:57:04
I agree Salah, I still believe we will win the league. I have no doubts.


13.) 19 May 2022 12:37:04
In our hearts we all agree with this.

In our heads though we have to accept City are going to be about 3-0 up after 16 minutes.


14.) 19 May 2022 13:07:32
Let’s hope another team in claret and blue can get a big result against city. We still have a chance regardless of how slim that chance is and have to go for it. Do what we can do and hope for the best.


15.) 19 May 2022 17:29:55
Nah I think villa can hold them. Villa don’t have to win. As a side note I think ederson is due a clanger.


16.) 19 May 2022 18:11:31
If we don't win the League on Sunday we're in danger of becoming just a good cup side.
Seriously though, whatever happens in our last two games it's been a fantastic season. Drink it in, Redmen.
I remember losing six to Stoke at the end of one season. We'll look back on 21/ 22 for years to come.


17.) 19 May 2022 19:55:24
De bruyne will score after about 6 minutes, and that’ll be that.


18.) 19 May 2022 22:43:17
It’s baffling to me, if you don't think we’ll win fine sit in the corner and keep it to yourself. Leave the res rod us to dream a little longer. But when we do win, they’ll be the first to come out the woodwork with the ‘see I knew we’d win it I told you’.


 

 

06 May 2022 08:34:14
Morning all, so I'm wondering, how many of you actually believe we're going to win the lot? because I certainly do. We never do things the easy way so here's what I'm thinking, the only team to stop us is spurs tomorrow, I'm thinking a draw but then City lose to Newcastle on Sunday! I also think they'll lose more points before the end, them getting knocked out of the CL is the best thing that could've happened, we're going to win the league.

Chelsea in the final, I don't even see it been a close game I think we'll steam roll them same goes for Real Madrid, bring them all on, we've got this.


1.) 06 May 2022 08:41:10
You're the ever optimist. I hope so.


2.) 06 May 2022 08:55:59
Salah love your optimism mate.

For me the simple answer is are we capable of winning the lot - hell yes.

Will we win the lot - well only time will tell and we only have 3 weeks to find out.

Newcastle were poor against us last weekend so I personally didn’t think they would cause City any problems but the fact City played extra time should leave then physically shattered as well as mentally.

Howe’s been getting lots of media credit recently and a result against City could be another feather in the cap for him so I’m sure he will be highly motivated for the plaudits.


3.) 06 May 2022 08:59:15
I feel the same. I always thought that the quadruple hinged on the result of the City-Madrid tie. If City went through, that would probably given them the momentum to win the league and make the prospect of winning the champions league a lot harder. Now though, the game has changed.

All of a sudden the narrative is firmly locked on to Liverpool winning the quadruple. The Liverpool players will not only be relieved as they do not have to endure a final against City, they’ll be motivated and driven to smash Madrid after what happened last time. Madrid have quality but they’ve ridden their luck at the Bernabeu and will not be able to do that again in a final. This will no doubt help us in the league games as it really does feel as though it’s on.

On the other side of the coin, City will have a hard time coming back from this. The one trophy they desperately want, the one they thought was finally within their grasp, has been snatched away in the cruellest of circumstances. The ‘bottle jobs’ narrative must be playing on a loop in their heads. They can now ‘only’ win the league, and somehow have to find a way to get up for the next four league games. Tired, injury ridden, having just played an exhausting tie with extra time, demoralised, doubting themselves. We don’t need them to play well below their level, just 10 or 20 percent less with their eye off the ball and it could be enough. Their adrenaline will have been dumped, the fatigue will set in.

How do you get yourself to go again? They might do, and win all their games with ease, but I don’t see it. I think it will be really difficult to get all the results they need after that.

Honestly can't see City losing to Newcastle. Wolves, West Ham are possible dropped points. Its the business end now. Keep the squad healthy and rotate when we can and we certainly are in with a massive shout. Just imagine!


5.) 06 May 2022 09:16:21
Anybody who thinks City will drop points is overly-optimistic imo. The only way to get over the semi loss is to put it behind them and go all out in the league. They will not want the humiliation of losing the league as well so unfortunately I can only see them putting the remaining teams to the sword.


6.) 06 May 2022 09:22:23
We will win.


7.) 06 May 2022 09:29:22
Let’s hope Newcastle at least get a draw. City will be drained mentally and physically from the Madrid game so now is as good a time to play them as any. Also, West Ham getting knocked out of the Europa is a good thing for us as they now have to play for their European place and Moyes will want to finish above United, so they might get a result against City.


8.) 06 May 2022 09:35:15
The fact West Ham went out last night is a plus. They now need league points to qualify for Europe next season.

But there again will they just be as deflated as City from losing their semi.

If that’s the case I’ll take a 0-0 draw between them with both sets of players too upset to even have a shot.


9.) 06 May 2022 09:49:52
I just can’t see city dropping points. Also it could come down to injury’s. I know there’s only a handful of games left but they can happen at any point in the season! Chelsea only have the cup to play for so I think it will be harder than most think. I have everything crossed though.


10.) 06 May 2022 10:00:00
We don't need City to lose any of those games. We just need them to draw any one of them PROVIDED we win all our games.

As to Salah's question, I have said it before. We CAN win the lot and I will continue to dream of us doing the Quad till I can dream no more.


11.) 06 May 2022 10:25:31
I'd make us favourites to beat Chelsea and madrid, city still favs for league. pity they didn't have tougher game than Newcastle at weekend, wasnt impressed with Newcastle last weekend, didn't think they played a glove on us, we should've won 3r4. West ham is big hope in league, hopefully they beat Norwich at weekend and full week rest til city match where they need points to qualify for europa again. also it mark noble last match at home, they will want to give him good send off.


12.) 06 May 2022 10:31:37
If the league was in our hands then I would say yes because I think we are very capable and will probably win our remaining games, but I also think City will as well.
I would have us as favourites against Chelsea and Madrid but Madrid do worry me, watched them quite a bit in the champions league and they have that something special about them, that never say die attitude and momentum, but we owe them a good clobbering…
I still think it’s unlikely to do the lot but it’s still very much possible.


13.) 06 May 2022 11:17:29
Wish I shared your optimism, Salah. Newcastle and Wolves are on the beach. Wolves downed tools weeks ago and even their own fans have given up on them. West Ham, granted, need points and are our only hope. Villa don't have a cat in hell's chance of getting anything. I am confident we will win all ours though.


14.) 06 May 2022 11:49:20
Problem is going into a final as favourites on the grand scheme of things means absolutely nothing.

We were massive favourites going into the 2nd legs of Inter, Benfica and Villarreal.

I hope the players go into the finals thinking they are the underdogs and knowing they need a great performance and to scrap for every ball to win both.

Because that’s how the Chelsea and Real players will be feeling.


15.) 06 May 2022 11:50:45
As i have said countless times, have people ever actually watched a title race? Teams with nothing to play for have a say all the time. Just because a team has nothing to play for it does not mean they’re ‘on the beach’ and will just roll over and happily lose every one of their remaining games. It’s nonsense. They’re professional footballers, the way some talk about them you’d think they’re school children.


16.) 06 May 2022 13:53:10
If the leauge was in our hands Salah I would say yes. I do not believe we will loose or draw again this season. So in games we affect we will win and end up with a treble.

I just don't see City loosing or drawing. If it is to happen it will be Sunday, still suffering form the disappointment of Madrid and having to shake off extra time etc. But I wouldn't be surprised if they rolled off 4 straight 4-0 wins.
Its all they have to play for now.

Having said that if they did slip and we won the lot would that make it the biggest failure in the history of the league. Baring in mind the resources they have, the squad they have, the manager they have and the 14 point lead they had in Janurary? Or would it just be seen that this Liverpool team is simply the greatest to ever play in the Premier Leauge era? And deflect from. wjat a total disaster this season would be for City.


17.) 06 May 2022 14:04:34
I think ManCity are shaken after the semifinal debacle, and they are ripe for someone to take points off from them. I think they've all taken a kick in the g*nads, and that's not only painful, but you remember it for a while.


18.) 06 May 2022 14:19:43
That was 120+ that City played. And then lost, there’s every chance that Newcastle might see this as a chance to get about them and take points.


19.) 06 May 2022 14:49:09
If we beat Spurs I’ll believe.


20.) 06 May 2022 15:14:31
The league is looking less possible. but I've had my fingers crossed for a while now. bloody awkward.
The cups we're having 100%.


21.) 06 May 2022 15:17:09
1jj, we definitely need to do that first, for sure.


22.) 06 May 2022 15:58:17
I believe we'll win the CL. To be honest, even when Villareal levelled the semi final tie, I was in no doubt that we'd still progress.

I just have an inkling that Chelsea might successfully bore us to death in the FA Cup and snatch it. Even though on paper it's a game we should win, given the respective form of the two teams.

League, I dunno. I'm confident we'll win our remaining games, but it might not be enough. City did show that their mentality can let them down midweek, but it's a case of is anyone they have left to play good enough to take advantage. If they falter, it'll either be this weekend or on the very last day, imo.


23.) 06 May 2022 16:33:50
For the past bit I've thought the league is not happening but the rest may. But recently I wonder if a certain narrative has turned in our favor.

Theres one team that teams don't show up against out of fear or lack of belief. Up until now that has been City. Remember we used to complain about the watfords, etc playing out of their skins against us but rolling over for city.

Newcastle absolutely rolled over for us despite their brilliant form. They may play out of their skins trying to claim a big scalp in City. Maybe teams are beginning to just not even begin with a belief they can get anything from us before the whistle is blown but will try and take that city scalp, instead of ours.

Heres hoping.


24.) 06 May 2022 17:01:41
I try not to think about it. One game at a time, please. Let us be humble, Redmen.


25.) 06 May 2022 17:26:11
It would be nice to win two more, I'm certainly not expecting all three. I do think that we will win the FA Cup, but I am not confident about anything else.


26.) 06 May 2022 17:33:40
Salah, I honestly believe we will win the lot. No question in my mind.


27.) 06 May 2022 21:08:04
Don’t Newcastle have Trippier and Wilson back for Sunday? Not world class players but decent on their day and both will be chomping at the bit and it might lift the rest of the team.
Plus after their recent good run they won’t want to lose 2 in a row.
Depends if Pep can do the Heimlich Manoevre on his squad and get that Bernabeu sized grape out of their throats in time.
We’ll see but I’m not losing hope of all 4 just yet!


28.) 07 May 2022 09:11:10
Salah - when I started reading your post, and before I saw who it was, I thought there's only 1 person this could be - Salah!

Not seen you post for a while, so welcome back, and I hope all is well with you.

I am full of hope for the quad but feel City will double down now and take the PL.

But what a season we are having with real excitement until the very last match! .


 

 

20 Apr 2022 08:33:11
Good morning all! and what a fine morning it is! lol what a result, keep it up Liverpool we can win the lot if we keep playing like that. I believe we will.


1.) 20 Apr 2022 09:11:52
We’ve definitely saved our best form for the run in haven’t we!


2.) 20 Apr 2022 10:39:14
Some of the football in the first half last night was mesmerising.

Thiago was meant to slow us down and not be suited to our style of play but the guy is like a conductor for a orchestra.

Mane is meant to be over the hill but he’s currently in the form of his life and he’s been absolutely world class for us through the middle.

Jota continues to stink up the place with his link up play and his through ball for the 4th goal was a prime example of this.

Kieta as our worst ever signing in the history of the club is getting loads of minutes.

And what can we say about the Diaz. The shiny new toy that some were so against signing in January. He’s done alright hasn’t he.

Rest of the lads are also doing ok with all their flaws and faults 😜.


3.) 20 Apr 2022 10:52:30
If Thiago was a problem for part of last season, albeit with a decimated defence at the time, this season and particularly in the past month, he’s brought a new dimension.
And, dare I say it, Naby Keita is looking like a new signing as well.
He possibly plays in a first choice midfield now, that’s how good he’s been recently.


4.) 20 Apr 2022 10:52:33
I think Everton will give us a far harder game than United, how United are where they are in the table defies logic. That said, I’m confident we’ll beat Everton. I’d save Thiago from that match as Everton will try and kick him off the park and judging by Keita he looks well up for a bit of midfield aggro.

{Ed077's Note - Cristiano Ronaldo, that's how. He has bailed Utd out with goals at key moments many times this season. Many Utd haven't won a single game when he hasn't played this season, tells a story on it's own.


5.) 20 Apr 2022 11:15:19
How beautiful was last night. Almost as perfect as the Manchester Massacre in October.


6.) 20 Apr 2022 11:30:32
Games like last night live long in the memory. To play that well against a team like mufc is why i suppirt our team.

To have every player make an impact is pure bliss.

And as for Thiago, pure pleasure. Thankyou mr Alcantara.


7.) 20 Apr 2022 11:31:22
Salah
i was disgusted with how we played last night, i mean we only scored 4 at home against our so called biggest rivals ; ) . If we play like that every game to end of season i think your right the quadruple is on!


8.) 20 Apr 2022 11:55:01
Nothing wrong with a shiny new toy as long as the old toys that still serve a purpose are appreciated JK😉.


9.) 20 Apr 2022 12:31:03
Was impressed by the whole team last night. Also a big well done to the fans able to attend the game.
Really pleased people put aside their differences to pay tribute. Bravo I say.


10.) 20 Apr 2022 12:55:11
What a result. A good performance - apart from the middle bit whereby we seemed to get confused by their decision to start pressing. Excellent energy and counter-pressing in a game that could have been at risk of being a bit flat after the Wembley semi final.

Ominously Mane, Salah, Thiago form is coming at just the right time. Mane is looking unplayable at the minute. Wow. Keep everyone fit and attack the remaining fixtures with all we have got and see where it takes us.

Everton next. Hopefully a similar level of performance from this wonderful group.


11.) 20 Apr 2022 13:29:43
Thiago was NEVER the problem and not even last season. As soon as we reverted to Fab playing in midfield with Gini, Thiago absolutely balled out in the final 10 games to help us to 3rd. When things aren't going well, it is normal to find scapegoats. Thiago was never one of them, IMO. What he is doing now is what he was doing in the final 10 games for last season BUT with better players around him who now know how he plays.

As for the game last night, I was not surprised with the way we played. We just smashed City at the weekend playing brilliant footie so it was what it was. What DID shock me was the Utd players' disgraceful perf. esp. off the ball. Pogba limped off after 6 mins. Was he really injured or did he literally quit on the team and tapped out? Either way, we move on to Everton.


 

 

13 Apr 2022 14:08:24
Said it from the beginning of the season and I'll say it again, we're going to win the champions League again. Will we win the league? I highly doubt it, looking at our fixtures compared to theirs, I have my doubts. I just don't see them dropping any points. With us I do, I think spurs and utd will go for it, I'm not that confident at all. Bring on that CL trophy. I'm hoping for a Liverpool Man city final. It'll do my heart no good but it's exciting.

Hope all is well.


1.) 13 Apr 2022 15:09:51
If we don't win the league, I want us to face city in the final and absolutely batter them.


2.) 13 Apr 2022 15:13:10
All good Salah. Hope you score tonight 👍.

{Ed0666's Note - you scored on you’re birthday a few days ago no Larry? That’s you don’t for another 354 days then!


3.) 13 Apr 2022 16:40:00
If we get there I’d rather beat Real Mad in final!

What's so special about the day 11 days before Barry's next birthday, Ed0666 ;-) :-D.

{Ed0666's Note - Jiggy Jiggy with Mrs Larry on his Bday!


5.) 13 Apr 2022 16:51:57
I think city will win the treble personally as I don’t think we can beat them anymore and I don’t think we can better their results over 36 games either.

{Ed0666's Note - oh dear


6.) 13 Apr 2022 16:52:42
I did in fairness but she includes Christmas as well.


7.) 13 Apr 2022 17:35:03
I would love to batter City in the final, too, but the idea is fanciful. Would love one of the Madrid teams in final; would be fairly confident against either of those. That's if we get passed Benfica and Villarreal first, of course.


8.) 13 Apr 2022 17:45:10
Benfica is a walk in the park. We’ve not lost at home in the CL since…. well last game against Inter but that doesn’t matter 🤣.

I feel far more confident that Klopp and the players won’t be underestimating any of our opposition like us fans seem to do.

{Ed0666's Note - Salah needs to sit this one out!


9.) 13 Apr 2022 18:39:56
We need City to go out tonight, then we have a real chance for the champions league.


10.) 13 Apr 2022 18:49:03
3 new defenders in the back 4.

3 new midfielders

2 new forwards.

Hope this doesn’t come back to bite us.


11.) 13 Apr 2022 18:58:07
I said the same mate. Predicted we'd come 2nd but win Champions League. I'll still take that 🤷🏻‍♂️.


12.) 13 Apr 2022 18:08:51
Ed0666 I think he will mate. I can imagine the front 3 being Diaz, Bobby and Jota.

I feel really nervous about tonight. European nights at Anfield are really special and the crowd is really up for it. But it just feels like we as fans feel it’s in the bag and with Villarreal winning last night even more so. We thought we only had to turn up for the inter game and they then ran us close.

I really hope we go as full strength as possible because if we end up going out tonight due to underestimating Benfica then we will only have ourselves to blame.

{Ed0666's Note - don’t you worry pal the boys have got this! Yes it seems a bit of unusual like up but the big artillery is on the bench when and if needed. Enjoy!


13.) 13 Apr 2022 18:14:26

14.) 13 Apr 2022 19:55:57
If I remember correctly I said I wouldn't be surprised if we pulled of a 'major' double this season.


15.) 13 Apr 2022 23:34:12
I'm not giving up on the league. They have sone tricky fixtures as well and they are obsessed with the champions league. if they draw or lose the first match with Real Madrid their entire focus will be on the second leg match and the league will be secondary. Just my opinion, but I still like our chances for both the league and champions league.


 

 

13 Dec 2021 14:18:19
What a farce today has been? Anyway, bring on inter.


1.) 13 Dec 2021 14:23:50
A repeat of the famous 1965 semi final tie, “Go back to Italy” and all that.
Tommy Smith kicked the referee up the a**e after the carry on at theirs, lol.


2.) 13 Dec 2021 14:24:48
I'm actually very confident we can beat Inter.

Shame we didn't get abit luckier with some of the other draws but if you want to win the Champs league that normally means beating some pretty big teams and there are only a 2-3 who I think could out-play us over 2 legs.

Bring on the Inter!


3.) 13 Dec 2021 14:39:06
Obviously would have preferred Salzburg but just one of them things. We have already beaten (convincingly too) top of Italian league, so hopefully we can dominate again and get to next round.


4.) 13 Dec 2021 14:40:24
Going all the way. come on.


5.) 13 Dec 2021 14:49:48
I’m not too worried about Inter in the sense that i think they are a better team than us, because the only team in the competition i really fear is Bayern Munich. However, from a cumulative probability stand point, it is worrying. We had the hardest group in the tournament and have already come through the Champions of Spain and two of the top clubs in Portugal and Italy. If we keep getting the toughest draws then your chances of winning the tournament go down drastically because any of these teams can beat you on their day. Things go wrong. The team that wins the Champions League almost always gets some luck of the draw on their way to the trophy, but it doesn’t look as though we’re going to get any of that. If we keep getting unlucky draws then your chances of winning the competition go down drastically, irrespective of how good you are.


6.) 13 Dec 2021 16:49:10
AW, don't sweat it, man. We are a veteran team that had to beat the likes of City (yeah, them), Bayern, Napoli (in their pomp), Porto (I stopped counting how many times) and of course Barcelona in that epic 2019 tie. We are prolly if not, the most experienced English team in the competition and are one of the most successful teams in the comp. for the past 4 years or so. It's all good, man.

I get your concerns and they are real BUT I wouldn't sweat it. Our boys are battle-tested veterans who do not expect anything to be handed to them. They relish the challenge and battle so all we have to do is stay humble, respect the opponent and go out there and get it done. Just my take.


7.) 13 Dec 2021 18:14:31
And Oli nails it.


8.) 13 Dec 2021 19:48:09
I don’t really disagree with what you say Oli, but beating so many top sides in a row is a huge ask and like i say, the very best sides can just flip a switch and make you look ordinary.

In 2017/ 18, we had a pretty easy group and while we played City off he park, we also had easier ties against Porto and Roma before our luck ran out against Madrid.

In 2018/ 19, we had a tough group with PSG and Napoli, and very nearly didn’t make it through. We then had tough games against Bayern and Barcelona, but also an easier tie against Porto and couldn’t have done much better than getting Spurs in the final, a team so inexperienced and for lack of a better word ‘Spursy’ that I never seriously thought we could lose the game.

In 2019/ 20, we had a group of average difficulty and then immediately had a very tough draw against Atletico, who did a number on us and knocked us out.

I can’t even count last season because it was barely even football and the Champions League was entirely unrecognisable.

As you can see, we’ve done well in Europe but we’ve also had some lucky draws. That isn’t unique to us, it is generally the case for most sides that go on to reach the final. My point is that if you keep getting the very best teams plonked down in front of you, it’s a very big ask to overcome them all. Most teams with tough runs in the competition come unstuck at some point because the odds just aren’t in their favour. It’s very unlikely that of all the top sides you play in a hard run that none of them will get the better of you at least once, and as such having an easier ride in a couple of games in Europe to keep the momentum going is always welcomed and is a commonality among most winners of the competition.

Obviously it can still be done, you only need to look at how the 2005 side ran the gauntlet against Juventus, Chelsea and AC Milan all in a row to win the competition against all odds. Having said that, running the gauntlet in the Champions League usually means you eventually come unstuck, even if you’re an incredible side. At some point a top side gets the better of you on the day, as we found out with a brutally tough draw against Atletico 2 years ago. Having already had a really tough group that included the Spanish Champions, we now find ourselves playing against the Italian Champions. After that, we could end up getting drawn against the French, English, German or European champions, who will have already had an easy ride in the last fixture and knocked out most of the lower ranked sides (apart from PSG) . What are the odds of besting all those sides in a row, even if you’re the best team in the world? Probably not very promising ones, that’s for sure.

I’m probably just overreacting and am having a bit of a strop about us going from having the easiest draw to the second hardest, but oh well. When the powers that be are so incompetent that they somehow find a way to mess up drawing balls out of a hat, then i’m allowed to harbour some resentment.


9.) 13 Dec 2021 20:25:48
AW - you mention the very best sides in the CL.
That includes us.
We just sailed through the so called "Group of Death". In the last 3 or so years, only the two Madrid sides have stopped us in the CL, and we just got payback against one of those.
I believe that these so called top sides have as much, if not more, to fear from us than we do from them. There'll be plenty thinking "whew, thank Christ we avoided Liverpool".
There is absolutely nobody we can't go toe to toe with.


10.) 13 Dec 2021 20:44:09
It’s arguably the biggest and best club competition in world football, so at some point you have to play top sides to progress. Inter are certainly not better than Atletico Madrid and are on a par with AC Milan. I feel confident of progressing. I can see Atletico putting United out.


11.) 13 Dec 2021 21:26:18
All I can say is, BRIIIIIIIING on your Internationale!


12.) 13 Dec 2021 21:47:23
Again lads, don’t disagree with you. Having to play the top sides eventually is an inevitability but you also want to avoid them for as long as possible because it reduces the amount of small hoops you have to jump through.

I’ll try and compare a hypothetical hard run in the knockouts to our 2018/ 19 run.

In the hypothetical scenario, let’s say we draw Inter, City, Chelsea and Bayern. I’d go as far as to say all of those ties are pretty much even.

0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 = 0.0625, so about 6.3% chance of winning the whole competition from the knockouts onwards.

If you take our 2018/ 19 run, we had Bayern, Porto, Barcelona and Spurs. Again, Bayern and Barcelona are top sides so i’d say those were evens, but against Porto and Spurs we were heavy favourites and i’d guess about a 70% chance of us winning those ties.

0.5 x 0.7 x 0.5 x 0.7 = 0.1225, so about a 12.3% chance of winning the competition from the knockouts onwards.

So, if you throw in a couple of slightly easier fixtures as opposed to drawing the best of the best in every round, you are around twice as likely to win the competition. It’s not a case of us not being capable of beating anyone, i go into every game believing we are going to win. It’s just that the reality of the Champions League is that anything can happen in the games against the best sides, and the more times you play them you significantly worsen your odds of winning the competition.

I’m worried that we’re going to be in a position whereby we’re going to be forced to play nearly every single top side in Europe right now, thus making the likelihood of us not slipping up once very unlikely, because if you play against the very best in every round then the likelihood is that at some point one of them will do you in. 4 coin tosses in a row isn’t very likely to get you heads every time.

Sorry if this came across as patronising or nonsensical i just didn’t think i was explaining my point properly. I’m deeply engrossed in a coffee fuelled 3 day scramble to get this economics paper finished and I am looking for just about anything i can use as an excuse to procrastinate.


13.) 14 Dec 2021 00:02:53
Has anyone watched Inter at all this season? How do they set up?
I know they are top of their league so are having a good season so far but I kind of think the Italian league is a lot weaker than what it used to be as well.


14.) 14 Dec 2021 09:24:15
AW, you are clearly making very good points. The only differing opinion I and some on the the thread have as well is that, we are a top team and we actually relish the challenge regardless of who we get. You play who is on the schedule/ draw and move on, IMO. To be the best, you have to BEAT the best. It's that simple and we all know LFC don't do things easily. It's always the hard way so Im used to it.

To me rather than to see playing tough teams often as a worry or concern, I simply see it as another opportunity to prove our worth and prove to all the other washed English teams that they have NOWHERE near our pedigree and legacy as far as the CL is concerned. It depends on the prism you want to see this topic through. I just choose this prism of belief and optimism cos well, we have done this multiple times before. Cheers, man.

The lad has a lot to learn but he's at the best place, under klopp he's laughing. Trust klopp, keep putting the work in and your career is made.

Salah is our best player and it's as simple as that, he's not himself at the mo :) but that happens with every player from time to time. The contact situation is boring, if he leaves then so be it, he's one player and we will continue as we always have done, if he stays then great. Either way I won't lose any sleep over it, top player or not. He's done a lot for us so should he leave I'd wish him the absolute best in his career. People are automatically resigned to the fact that he's already gone so are using his recent performances to justify getting rid. Personally I think he's waiting until the season is over before he makes his mind up, he seems very happy at the club but after a long season with many games it's took it's toll. All I hope is that he's back to himself by the 28th!

Also fully agreed, anything can happen and City WILL drop points. We'll win the league.

I must admit, Jota is one of them for me. Is he a good player? it's really debatable because he knows where the goal is and that's his job. Put everything else into the mix, is he a good player? no he is not and he frustrates me at times but I don't want rid of him anytime soon, not when he scores like he is doing, he must stay. I have no idea about stats and not really interested in them but at the same time I think of if it weren't for Jota this season would we be in the positions we're currently in? we wouldn't. He's one of them players who gets the goals and helped us compete at the highest level, he gets my support.
