Well we may as well get this out the way - ed002, if you have a moment, who would be the runners and riders for the big seat come the end of the season.


{Ed002's Note - It It will change, but perhaps:
Xabi Alonso (C) A popular choice and having a great season at Bayer Leverkusen, but very inexperienced.
Pep Ljinders (C) Liverpool could look to trying to persuade him to stay for continuity.
Zinedine Zidane (C) I understand an advisor has told Liverpool not to discount Zindane after discussions over another job for him are delayed pending a change of club ownsership.
Julian Nagelsmann (C) Contracted until the Euros are finished in the summer - talented and perhaps should not be discounted.
Roberto de Zerbi (C) Brighton would fight to keep him but another who will certainly be discussed.
Arne Slot (C) Complete wildcard, but a great coach and very good option.
Michel (C) No obvious interest and may well have another job in mida already. Another wildcard who should be considered.
Steven Gerrard (C) Did well at Rangers but pretty hopeless since. Perhaps a popular choice for some of the fans, it would be very unlikely in my view.}

1.) 27 Jan 2024 10:09:55
Would Amorim be in consideration Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt it and I would doubt Sporting would be open to offers.}

2.) 27 Jan 2024 10:54:41
Ed002 two questions really as your insight into the game is always a step above most the other views we get on tv etc - who from the list above or those potentially available would be your best pick? Do you feel that Alonso not having the experience is another situation similar to Gerrard where they would struggle in England or do you think he’s a lot more tactically adept like Pep was in Spain originally and arguably Arteta is since joining Arsenal?

{Ed002's Note - Nagelsmann of the likely candidates would work. There is a risk with Alondo and Michel allthough but are have great seasons. Gerrard would not be a good choice. Ljinders gives continuity but would need to be persuaded to stay. Slot would be a bold but good choice. Much will depend on what advice the club is given.}

3.) 27 Jan 2024 11:33:34
Please God not Gerrard.

4.) 27 Jan 2024 12:01:55
Xabi Alonso with the right structure around him seems like the best move. As Xabi is considered one of us, he would get more time and patience in the role than others.

5.) 27 Jan 2024 12:47:09
I don't think I'd want Zidane either great player but not sure he's a great manager, I know he won with Madrid but look at the squad he had.

6.) 27 Jan 2024 23:18:21
De Zerbi comes with the same level of risk as Potter did.

The Sporting manager is surely available at a price, as is everything in that league. Would FSG pay 20m for a manager though?
At least with Xabi he knows L4 and the culture well. I'd be overjoyed with him, despite the inexperience, with the one caveat being that surely we'd be a stepping stone for Real or even Bayern, eventually. 5 years max then, as seems to be the standard in this day and age, apart from when a unique and brilliant individual like Jurgen comes along.

7.) 27 Jan 2024 18:42:45
As always thanks ed002, much appreciated.

Hope the start of 2024 finds you well.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome and wish you and yours a safe and adverse health and fungus free 2024.}

8.) 28 Jan 2024 11:30:48
Zidane won 2 league titles and 3 CL titles he’s definitely a top manager. He had good players but so what? If we bring him in and give him good players he’s proved he can deliver.

{Ed025's Note - i just dont think he fits OK, comes across as a bit of an arse hole to me mate..

9.) 28 Jan 2024 22:54:10
I reckon Zidane might be a good option. You just know if Pep G gets in his way, that he's just a headbutt away from clearing out the tech area.

10.) 29 Jan 2024 17:19:56
He could well be an arse I’ve never really read into what he’s like. But I think even if he was the most important thing is his cv. I doubt there’s another Klopp out there. Mourinho was an arse too but he won trophy after trophy.

{Ed025's Note - i think Klopp changed the narrative when it comes to management OK, very magnanimous and approachable and bonded with the city and its fans, the likes of Zidane and Mourinho are not like that at all and are egoists who think its all about them mate, i hope Liverpool are better than that and pick someone who can carry on the legacy..



10 Sep 2023 16:15:48
Well now the Salah rumours are put to bed for the moment let's start another one.

Any chance Germany will try for Klopp ed002 with a home euros on the horizon or is it pretty much going to be Nagelsmann.


{Ed002's Note - They may well be interested but I think the timing is wrong right now.}

1.) 10 Sep 2023 20:39:51
Jurgen is an honourable man who will see out his contract, after which, I reckon he'll be done with club football and the way the game is going, and then become the national coach for a good stint.

2.) 11 Sep 2023 00:11:06
Go German national team and be criticised by Franz Beckenbauer or go Saudi league as Messiah and earn close to billion, you decide.

3.) 11 Sep 2023 06:17:22
He said he’s going to see out his contract and then take a year off. After that he said he’ll see how he feels.

4.) 11 Sep 2023 09:03:08
Klopp is super motivated again with the new look squad 2.0 he has. He is going nowhere fast.

5.) 11 Sep 2023 12:14:22

Once you accrue a certain amount of wealth what is the point trying to earn more if it makes you unhappy . I cannot see a time that klopp joins the spl .

Liverpool to German manager is how I see it going as he will be close to 60 then so international football will probably suit him plus moving home he will be a god
In Germany as the coach.

6.) 11 Sep 2023 13:05:17
Saw a story on one of the click bait sites which has mentioned Xavi as a replacement if Klopp could be tempted away. How would that go down with everyone?

7.) 11 Sep 2023 13:39:55
Xabi not Xavi maybe? ?.

8.) 11 Sep 2023 13:52:25
@dhc, you have understand the politics of german national Team. It spells Bayern Munich. From franz Beckenbauer to Hansi Flick, to Oliver kahn. We know hoe klopp dislike Bayern Munich dominating Bundesliga with their wealth, hence klopp's revolution with BVB brought such tense rilvary. Klopp will not join national coach. Regarding your statement about $, ahemm. go ask Ronaldo, our beloved Henderson, Mbappe, Neymar and also sooon to be saudi player Salah.

9.) 11 Sep 2023 18:27:58
I hope Klopp stays for longer not sure if he will but what other manager apart from pep can do what he does we havnt had a manager like Klopp in my life time of supporting this club some say Roy evans but to me klopp is special irreplaceable in my eyes I’d rather loose salah than klopp and that’s saying some thing.

10.) 11 Sep 2023 18:32:44
@Lee, whilst I go and ask Ronaldo, should I go and ask Mbappe too? Not everybody is motivated solely by money all the time, it would seem.

11.) 11 Sep 2023 20:53:56
Klopp will never manage for money, he is a socialist.
I see him taking one more job, maybe in the sunshine if not Germany.
I am convinced that he will not extend his contract any further with LFC.

12.) 11 Sep 2023 21:31:44
De zerbi if still available.

13.) 11 Sep 2023 22:35:20

“Champagne socialist” more like. Not criticising Klopp personally as I don’t know his situation but pretty fed up of millionaire ‘socialists’ who have accountants and keep their wealth in tax havens.

Too many of those socialists, basically “do as I say not as I do”.

14.) 11 Sep 2023 23:55:18
I really like the work of De Zerbi and Ange. I've seen Ange's work for a long time now from A-league to where he is now and he has consistently turned out quality football and alwyas seemed to be a real connection between the team and the fanbase.

If Ange was available at the end of Klopp's tenure I'd go for him.

15.) 12 Sep 2023 06:11:54
Ange is a red too.

16.) 12 Sep 2023 08:13:16
Interesting point about the Bayern Munich connection Lee.
But I reckon your comments about Mr and Mrs Klopp going to Saudi is as accurate as your tapas over fish and chips assertion ?
I just don't see them over there myself.
They'd be like mushy peas on tapas, know what I mean?

17.) 12 Sep 2023 08:40:19
Yeah I just don't see the Klopps living in Saudi, about as good a fit as mushy peas on tapas lol.
Agree on Ange too, a very possible future Liverpool manager?

18.) 13 Sep 2023 05:32:04
Ange will be too old to start a project at Anfield.



24 Aug 2023 06:36:54
Some chatter about a potential deal for Salah with Al Ittihad.

Any truth Ed's?

I know you've said his agent has been touting him around for a while so it wouldn't be a major surprise, especially given the talent that's now already gone to Saudi.


{Ed002's Note - Mo Salah (RW) His agent is hawking him around for one last big payday - Real Madrid are not interested, PSG may be, Middle East certainly with Al-Ittihad. I would expect him to stay another year the head to the Middle East.}

1.) 24 Aug 2023 09:35:22
He is going to take some replacing.

2.) 24 Aug 2023 09:54:38
I have got this funny feeling Salah will go this window. Szobozlai will end up playing on the right hand side but obviously in a different role to Salah.
Get Nunez up top and start getting the ball in to him.

3.) 24 Aug 2023 09:57:10
If Salah stays for another year it gives Doak another year to develop further. If he can work on his end product the guy will terrify the league.

4.) 24 Aug 2023 10:39:32
Doak won’t be replacing Salah next season, in my opinion anyway.

5.) 24 Aug 2023 10:51:37
With a week left in the transfer window we would be insane to let mo leave but it wouldn’t surprise me in this crazy window.

6.) 24 Aug 2023 11:12:12
Olise, Saka, Garnacho. Doak! if you're good enough your old enough.

7.) 24 Aug 2023 12:45:14
But Olise and Garnacho aren’t good enough to replace Salah either?

In fact not many are.

Having belief in Doak is great but we shouldn’t set him up to fail by asking him to perform a role he’s not ready for yet.

8.) 24 Aug 2023 12:45:49
I think we underestimate the value of experience - look how long it’s taken Man City to integrate Foden, who’s an exceptional talent and only now getting a starting role age 23. Even Saka is almost 22.

Ben Doak is 17…. He’s a fantastic talent but let’s not claim he’s ready to replace one of the best ever goal scorers to have graced the PL, it takes years of learning to master your craft, no matter how talented you may be.

9.) 24 Aug 2023 13:27:51
When Salah does leave it won't be a case of swapping a like-for-like ready made replacement in. It will be accommodated by the team shifting focus. Already this year I believe we will be less reliable on him. From what I have seen pre season and in the first couple of games we have seen a shift from being over reliant on his goals to him creating more than he is scoring. In addition we have brought in midfielders who are far more likely to contribute goals than those they replaced.

Our next RF/ RW won't be a ready made Salah clone. It will be a player who fits into the new Liverpool team that is currently being built.

I'm not saying Doak definitely will be ready to step up next season but I'm certainly not writing him off because he is 17. Look at Owen. It's only a few days since people were livid because we didn't sign a 19 year old for £60M who had only a handful of games as experience.

As Jude says. "If you're good enough, you're old enough"

10.) 24 Aug 2023 15:11:41
Exactly Jude. Like I said Doak won’t be replacing Salah next season.
You think he’s good enough? Like really?

11.) 24 Aug 2023 15:28:32
Garnacho? Hard pass on that one, JN. Doak is a kid and needs to develop on his own and at his own pace. Who replaces Salah? Khavatskhelia or Federico Chiesa (hopefully he is back to his best after his injury) would be my shouts.

12.) 24 Aug 2023 18:55:58
A club should never have to replace a single player so to speak and if you look at the change from our front 3 of mane, Bobby, Salah the club have actually done very well at bringing in Diaz, gakpo Nunez at different stages. I'm sure the club will have a long list of possible signings to play on the right. I do also have a sneaky feeling salah will be overtaken by a few as our most important player.

13.) 25 Aug 2023 06:05:53
If we are going to sell salah, you have to replace him with quality. The only player we should be looking at is mitoma from brighton.



02 Jun 2023 19:11:37
Question for Ed002 if you'll entertain it.

Have there been transfers that you personally thought were either excellent business / terrible business but went on to be the exact opposite.


{Ed002's Note - Kevin Astro of a should have worked out much better at Marseille and Monaco signed Eidur Gudjohnsen assuming expecting far more than they got from him.}

1.) 02 Jun 2023 19:59:02
How about Liverpool players?
Harry Kewell was a disappointment to me.

{Ed002's Note - Downing was a mistake. Aquila I was ruined by another Liverpool player.

2.) 02 Jun 2023 20:38:28
Not a signing that didn't work out, but thought we should have signed Anelka years ago. Brought Diouf instead. Still hurts.

Agree thought Kewell would have been a good signing, liked Barmby as well. Thought Robbie Keane was a brilliant signing, shame that didn't work.

3.) 02 Jun 2023 20:53:38
Editor 2- Aquilani's career at LFC was ruined by another Liverpool player: was it a goalkeeper, defender, midfielder or attacker/ CF from his contemporaries in the squad. First time poster and would appreciate an answer.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

4.) 02 Jun 2023 21:49:34
Keane had apparently gotten a bit fond of a pint by the time he arrived here.

I heard a story about why he didn't last too long in his second Spurs spell, but it's potentially actionable, so I'd best keep it to myself.

5.) 02 Jun 2023 23:03:45
Morientes was a disappointment in the end. Expected so much more from him.

6.) 02 Jun 2023 23:59:50
Great post. For me most disappointing was Ryan babbel. Great player speeed everything just bit of a soft attitude. Should’ve signed Anelka. Worst signing Paul konchesky or Andy Carrol. Best signing firmino just a quality player drifting between lines creating play opening the game for Salah and mane. What a team. I hope we can get one more great team out of klopp before he goes. Special mention for Joe Cole and David ngog lol we have previously scraped the barrel. People on here should remember this when they talk poorly of fsg. They may not be perfect but there’s no David ngog in the team.

7.) 03 Jun 2023 00:47:51
Weirdly for me it was Joe Cole. I had watched so many interviews with his former teammates about how much talent he had and that it was unfortunate he couldn’t fully show it at Chelsea. Then he came to us and got a bloody red card on his debut!

8.) 03 Jun 2023 01:01:28
I'll be completely honest. I didn't rate Milner when we signed him. I know, I know - but I was converted after a couple of games! Most disappointing? Diouf. Can't stand that tw. it.

9.) 03 Jun 2023 01:47:08
Most disappointing Diouf or Keita for different reasons

Biggest ‘what could have been’ Jati Litmanen - I know he played and won stuff with us but if he’d been with us before the injuries ….

Biggest surprise effect Robbo, Millie and Suarez who was better on the pitch than the biggish reputation at Ajax. Not the nicest of people perhaps but I think there were probably reasons for that too.

10.) 03 Jun 2023 07:29:25
Biggest one for me was probably Danny Ings. Really thought he'd be awesome for us and then back to back knee injuries just ended it all.

11.) 03 Jun 2023 07:41:48
Kewell biggest disappointment for me, thought we signed the best player in the league at the time. I can't fathom how he ended up so poor for us.
Robbo was the 1 that I ended up with egg on my face, couldn't understand at time why we trying to sign him.
What a player he turned out to be.

12.) 03 Jun 2023 07:42:29
Kewell and Litmanen were definitely my most disappointing signings. Really thought the title was ours when we signed them.

13.) 03 Jun 2023 08:57:49
Benteke Was a waste of a shirt for me. Just walking around the pitch all game looking uninterested. Also expected big things from Fabio Berini. That might have been to do with the fact that I watched YouTube clips of him, as I hadn’t really seen him play, and he looked like a world beater. Maybe my expectations were too high. I try not to do the YouTube thing anymore when we sign anyone.

14.) 03 Jun 2023 09:09:28
Jack Witham:
Scored a hat trick against us.
We immediately signed him from Sheff Wednesday as the Roger Hunt replacement.
Never heard of him?
That tells the story!
He played 15 times in 4 seasons.

15.) 03 Jun 2023 10:29:58
For me, I was so excited as a young kid when signing Kewell. Remember checking teletext daily to see if he’d sign. A shame that injuries robbed him the chance of showing his true form for us especially as he turned down the cream of Europe to join us.

Other notable mentions:
Zieger (the LB from Boro who we went to court over)
Biscan (hear me out on this one. I naively just assumed he’d be awesome from day 1 after watching Mario Stanic score screamers for Chelsea. Biscan did turn into a cult hero by the end)
Keita (me telling anyone who’d listen that he’s a Sadio Mane clone in midfield)

With players like Joe Cole, the morale of supporting us was at an all time low then and wasn’t expecting much.

16.) 03 Jun 2023 11:44:16
Biggest disappointments for me have been Keita, Benteke, Carroll, but mostly it’s good youth players that didn’t make it with us for whatever reason - Wilson, Suso, Texeria.

Nicest surprises have been Robertson, Riise and Gomez (given the latters price at £3.5m and went straight into the first team as a 17 year old if I remember. Despite his lack of form now considering these things and his PL winning season he’s been a bargain. Always happiest when a player comes through from the youth though so happy with Trent, Jones, Elliott and Sterling.

17.) 03 Jun 2023 11:50:49
I am quite sure it was only injury that ruined Aquilani his ankle problems where worse than the club thought upon signing. Unless Gerrard stood on his ankle in training I can see no other reason for his torrid time with Liverpool.

{Ed001's Note - he was fit for months and Rafa didn't put him in the team because he realised he had been sold a pup. He was just not very good in reality and Rafa had not checked on him properly, instead trusting his scouts. The scouts got it wrong, he just wasn't a good player.}

18.) 03 Jun 2023 11:56:20
Biscan never, ever smiled, except once, after he scored against Fulham.

19.) 03 Jun 2023 13:04:44
Bruno cheyrou, dubbed the next Zidane. (Shaking head)

20.) 03 Jun 2023 13:07:10
When we sold the best and most mobile number 9 in world football in Suarez and then bought the most immobile striker in world football in Balotelli. We didn’t recover until Klopp come in.

21.) 03 Jun 2023 15:17:14
Agree with many of the above, but Joe Cole was also a disappointment as I had fond memories of him at Chelsea and the hammers.

22.) 03 Jun 2023 15:26:58
How has no one mentioned Mario balotelli also an honourable mention for Jermaine pennant.

23.) 03 Jun 2023 18:19:00
Sadly I didn't expect much from Balotelli, couldn't believe we signed him, his attitude sucked, not a team player. Jermaine Pennant, I liked, thought for the time he was with us, a useful player. Even if it was just for the screamer against Chelsea.

Antonio Nunez I was excited about when we brought him in from RM in exchange for Owen. How wrong I was. Litmanen could have been so good, shame that didn't work out.

Stan Collymore was another one, when we signed him, I thought him and Fowler, would bring us the league. Again had some good moments.

24.) 03 Jun 2023 19:12:08
Markovic along with aquilani turned out to be one of the biggest disappointment.
Christian paulsen is another honourable mention.
Mark gonzalez was another one, i remember when rafa signed him i was too excited.

25.) 03 Jun 2023 20:20:21
Worst signings

David Speedie
Nigel Clough
Glen Hysen
Julian Dicks
Paul Konchesky
Jimmy Carter
Bruno Cheyrou
Ryan Babbel

Best signings

Peter Crouch
Gary McAllister
Fernando Torres
Luis Suarez
Allison Becker
Xabi Alonso.

26.) 03 Jun 2023 20:31:31
One I don't think I've seen mentioned is Steven Caulker. Why we ever loaned him I'll never know.

27.) 04 Jun 2023 10:37:40
How has nobody remembered Sean Dundee?

28.) 04 Jun 2023 21:50:38
anyone for GAKPO.



04 Dec 2020 09:54:51
A question for Ed002 if your available.

What do you think the impact is going to be for British clubs based on the new immigration rules introduced this week. In particular that they are banned from signing any under 18s and only 3 under 21s per window.

In theory it should promote more homegrown talent and prevent stockpiling at clubs but will it financially have a knock on from the way some clubs utilise their academies?


{Ed002's Note - That is why the English clubs pressed to sign 16 and 17 year old players in the summer as has been explained. The three "under 21" per window will have little or no impact, and the idea is to drive the English clubs to start looking for more English Club Developed and Home Grown players. So there is no big deal here beyond no longer being able to sign 16 and 17 year old players. The much bigger impact will come when they lower the number of non HG players allowed in the Premier League and introduced a Club Developed rule as UEFA have already done - that is where Liverpool will be hit, in the same way as they are already playing with a reduced CL squad due to poor squad management - and will have to do the same next season. It is those changes some clubs are fearing.}

1.) 04 Dec 2020 11:11:29
We'll be grand, sure half our squad will have come through the academy again Klopp leaves. We'll have a team built around homegrowners in Trent, Joe, Neco, Curtis, Harvey and the likes of Koumetio and Kelleher over the next few years.




Wassa-lfc's banter posts with other poster's replies to Wassa-lfc's banter posts


06 Dec 2023 22:42:43
Confirmed Matip ruptured his ACL.

Pretty much season over and may well never play for LFC again.

If that's the case thank you Joel.

Despite the injuries for a free signing you've been a fantastic member of the squad.


1.) 06 Dec 2023 22:57:56
Love Matip always have. Was playing great as well.

2.) 06 Dec 2023 23:16:50
Really sad.

Hopefully Konate/ Gomez can step up now.

I have to say Konate in particular looked off it tonight. He is such a mixed bag. He can be great but I'd say he is a nightmare CB partner. Liable to do anything. I think I'd go Van Dijk/ Gomez personally.

It's a shame about Matip. He was showing very good form. Darn injuries.

3.) 06 Dec 2023 23:32:21
Gomez has been steady this season. Like to see him get a run next to Virgil. Odds are that Gomez and Konate will play 3 games then miss the next 3. Opportunities for Quansah to get more game time.

4.) 06 Dec 2023 23:51:46
With Matip tearing his ACL we need to sign a centre in January. To be honest I thought we needed to sign one anyways but now more so than before. Konate is injury prone and has regressed. Whereas Gomez is is susceptible to errors. Quansah looks a real talent but if Konate gets injured that leaves VVD, Quansah and Gomez as our only recognisable centre backs.

5.) 06 Dec 2023 23:56:22
Gomez's injury record has been pretty good last few years. I think he has the better record with Van Dijk too. I'd go with him anyway.

Also Endo great again tonight. definitely starter now and much better protection for back four.

Also this is off topic again, but Nunez just improves our attack so much. It doesn't look the same and as dangerous when he is not starting. Hope he is back on against Palace.

6.) 06 Dec 2023 23:56:57
Matip has been a big part of LFC success.

Hope he makes a full recovery.

7.) 07 Dec 2023 05:36:05
People have forgotten that Nat Phillips is out on loan at Celtic. Very possible that he is brought back in January.

8.) 07 Dec 2023 08:55:56
This is terrible news guys we must sign a centre back in January. Konate is very clumsy and like a bull in a china shop while gomez is prone to brain farts neither are good enough for a premier league challenge.

9.) 07 Dec 2023 09:01:39
Probably, ArAy1969. Cos I read he is not even playing at Celtic right now so worth a shout.

10.) 07 Dec 2023 09:47:46
Nat Phillips has less chance of playing for Liverpool than me. VVD, Konate, Gomez and Quansah and perhaps a signing n January (we all wanted one or two until we signed Ryan at the back end of the last transfer window, didn’t we? ) .

11.) 07 Dec 2023 10:08:34
Gomez barely passed a ball right all night. Either misplaced or behind a player.

Whereas Konate was a beast on his first full game back and he needs replacing? He won more duels than any other player.

Shame about Matip but I read that he has been here 7 seasons and only just clocked up 150 games. I knew he was a bit injury-prone, but that’s shocking!



17 Nov 2023 12:31:47
This is the issue with these FFP fines and penalties.

Everton get an immediate penalty deduction now and aren't bottom.

Had it been a few months ago they get relegated.

Ridiculous situation.

And let's not start on Everton getting done by City's still hanging around like a bad smell.




13 Oct 2023 16:05:06
City v Liverpool moved to 12.30 after the next international break.

So glad to see it's evenly spread out.


1.) 13 Oct 2023 17:35:16
Hands up if I’m wrong but I do believe these are offered to the clubs and they decide if they want them or not.
I would like to know the Stat of Saturday 12:30 kick off and how many Liverpool have played compared to others?

In Klopps tenure we've had 14 12.30 kick offs after an international break next is spurs on 6 I think. Hardly evenly spread out but maybe Klopp needs to stop moaning about it because the situation hasn't got better.

He should go absolutely radio rental. It’s probably going to cost us points. Refuse to do the press conference before and refuse to speak to TNT. We will almost certainly be without Nunez, Mac and Diaz for both games. We are down to the bare bones but if the matches were 4pm on the Sunday we have no excuses and a far better chance.

I just read that the move had to do with the police's rears of crowd trouble. Not sure what that means cos well, City don't have fans to begin with. Okay, so I made up that last part.

5.) 13 Oct 2023 18:43:49
Just for the record - the ‘so glad to see it's evenly spread out’ was sarcasm.

6.) 13 Oct 2023 19:06:31
4pm Sunday has always been used for the biggest games, what’s changed? It’s very convenient that they chose a Saturday evening time that they knew would get rejected. So they can now say blar blar blar we tried for a different slot.

When it's obvious bias in the schedule and obvious bias from the refs, is there any reason to think it's not a conspiracy?

9.) 13 Oct 2023 20:39:14
My theory on this is that Liverpool are a team with a true global reach and the GMT lunchtime kick off allows most other time zones to also be able to tune in live.
Eastern US and Canada in the morning.
Africa, Europe and Middle East is no problem.
And the Far East and just about Australia and New Zealand too.
So the weekend midday start with Lfc s a good selling point for the PL's global television rights.

It's "human error" and "incompetence". Therefore, permissible if going by recent events. Move along. ?.

I thought is was corruption myself ArAy ?.

12.) 13 Oct 2023 22:08:46
It’s a fair point Juicer, but what about the integrity of the game? Surely that should come first?

Otherwise surely it’s all just entertainment rather than a true sporting contest? Maybe we’re already past that point anyway.

Maybe at half time a few of the players should eat ‘bush tucker’ to gain an extra ‘goal’.

(Not a dig at you there Juicer by the way) .

13.) 14 Oct 2023 09:24:47
Doesn't matter anyway because City are all going to get the dreaded lurgy the day before the game match will be rescheduled until the end of the season where we will win the League in front of a half full Editored Stadium and Parade our shiny new trophy in front of Micah Richards and Gary Neville and just to rub salt in Salah wins the golden boot and signs a new contract to keep him in red for another two years, well with all the doom and misery going on in the world I thought I'd cheer myself up and hopefully a couple of other fellow reds who are currently trying to figure out wtf is going on in the world.

14.) 14 Oct 2023 09:26:48
Incidents with ‘fans’ attacking the opposition team’s coach. I’m assuming that’s the reasoning. It’s sad if it’s a factor in the reasoning but I’ll bet it is.

15.) 14 Oct 2023 12:42:58
You would think someone in charge of these things would say"liverpool to 12.30?no we can't do that they've played 12.30 after the two international windows already this year, we'll get slaughtered". Surely the idea of fairness and integrity is more important than the want of TNT and Sky. Even as im writing that last sentence i know its nonsense?.

16.) 14 Oct 2023 16:04:41
I just saw our next game is early kick off with Everton. So that makes it 13.

17.) 14 Oct 2023 18:58:32
It’s getting a bit like ‘We are Millwall’ on here, at the moment.



07 Oct 2023 19:10:22
Fingers crossed for Chris Basham of Sheffield United in his recovery but that's a properly bad one.

Given he's 35 that may well be that for the poor fella.

Let's just wish him well and hope he has a speedy recovery. Doesn't matter what team you support - you hate seeing anything like that.


1.) 07 Oct 2023 20:14:27
@ wassa
I don’t think Hel come back after that mate . That’s career ending no matter what age . Such a shame for the fella no one likes seeing that in the game . Fingers crossed I’m wrong but I feel that he’s done their .

2.) 07 Oct 2023 20:27:45
I'd say that's a retirement injury unfortunately.

3.) 07 Oct 2023 23:38:35
Credit to you Wassa for saying that, a horrible and unfortunate injury.

Wishing him well.

4.) 08 Oct 2023 00:01:46
Horrible injury! I just wish the lad a quick recovery.



02 Sep 2023 09:53:20
Video on Liverpool's social media of Gravenberch arriving.

First person he sees is Cody, gets a friendly welcome.

Then he gets a bit Virgil hug.

The next person you see him meeting is Robbo:

"Nice to meet you, finally a good Dutch player. "



1.) 02 Sep 2023 10:21:27
Really looking forward to seeing this lad play.

He only played the equivalent of 6 games last season so I think he’s definitely going to need some match fitness to get up to speed.

Our squad rather than first 11 is loaded with quality now and with 5 subs a game we only have to look at Newcastle last week to see what a strong bench can offer.

I thought Jota, Nunez and Elliot turned the game in our favour and Gomez also did very well when he came on early.

4 subs making such an impact in one game is huge.

2.) 02 Sep 2023 11:14:45
Delighted with the midfield overhaul. There’s potential there to grow into a really strong unit.
I think we are still a centre back off challenging for the league. But top four is on now we’re in miles better shape than last season.

3.) 02 Sep 2023 11:50:53
If we can get through Virgil’s suspension and Konates injury without dropping points, and keep the above fit and on the field I honestly think we’ve got a decent chance at competing.
We haven’t scratched the surface yet in terms of what our new signings are capable of, but we have seen they’re capable of putting themselves about in a way our midfield wasn’t able to last season.
Lads, should be good.

4.) 02 Sep 2023 12:04:02
I saw the vid as well as the one where Klopp meets him for the first time. This along with the way Klopp welcomed Endo and the others, these are the players he wants and the ones thankfully, the club got him. We're ready to rock.

5.) 02 Sep 2023 12:04:05
I disagree LFC8 we won the league and champions league with 3 of the 5 CBs that we have right now. Of course they need to stay mainly fit but they are definitely good enough for a title challenge.

6.) 02 Sep 2023 12:33:25
Beckers pecker, we won the title over 3 years ago. The following season Gomez got a career threatening patella injury and Matup' ankle blew out so badly he was out for 6 months.

You might want to watch the Forest, Leeds, Wolves, Brighton, Southampton and Real Madrid games from last season for a little reality on Gomez and Matip.

Injuries to Matip, Gomez and Konate are inevitable. We are betting on Quansah stepping up.

7.) 02 Sep 2023 12:51:11
I'm just amazed you understood what Robbo said ?????.

8.) 02 Sep 2023 13:44:54
And we got another tall Dutch player too (this will excite Thunderbird 2 most?)

9.) 02 Sep 2023 15:01:53
New season, let's give the players a chance to better themselves eh?

The lads last injury was a dislocated shoulder. Barely a fitness related injury is it. Unless he hurt it eating all those pies he clearly does.

16/ 17 - 33 championship games (2100 minutes)
17/ 18 - 41 championship games (3100 minutes)
18/ 19 - 42 championship games (3500 minutes)
19/ 20 - 37 championship games (3200 minutes)
20/ 21 - 29 bpl games (2400 minutes)
21/ 22 - 20 bpl games (1500 minutes)
22/ 23 - 12 bpl games (290 minutes)

I mean what a horrendous injury prone lad he is.

I mean apart from he’s playing and motivated obviously - which was most of his career so far.

If there’s even a whiff of that being true I’d bin him off.

There’s question marks over his character already.

I’m completely fine with not having a player who would rather be somewhere else.


{Ed002's Note - I don't know what "bin him off" means but is it some starnge act you can perform on him to convince him to move to Liverpool?}

Ah Leek, that would be the West Ham that currently haven’t won (now) in 7 games and Everton who have won one in 11. Real benchmark results for Arsenal and City those.

For much of the season we have shown grit and determination. In a tight title battle that goes a long way.

But isn’t it also the point that we are introducing a “third tier” of punishment?

They struggle to get it right with two! What chance have we got that they will actually do anything vaguely competent with three.

Two yellows equals a red.
Two blues equals a red.
A blue and a yellow equals a red.
Or we have a straight red.

Good job Graham Poll isn’t still around poor bloke would have a coronary.

That has precisely no chance of working.
