{Ed001's Note - if he was just posting saying he had read it, that would be different. It is the false claims that are tiresome. }

This is my point from the begining, when he started posting stuff. But all I take is tumbs down and jumping on me to leave him posting his info. Finnaly.

Excited and nervous for today’s game, I really hope we do a job on them and get ourselves back to the top of the table. I really don’t think mourinho can afford to park the bus today, another defeat and I think united will be too far behind the top 4 to even challenge. I’m going for 3-0, salah first goal. Come on you reds!

Ed001, any idea why Ovie is back? Was it Rangers decision due to a disappointing return? Or Liverpool's decision to g9ve us more depth during the winter period?

I have to be honest I've not followed Rangers progress at all so I've no idea if he's even been playing regularly.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - because he is a lightweight who never settled in Scotland and was afraid of the physicality.}

16 Dec 2018 11:56:01
Worrying Ed001. Sounds like he needs the Spanish Seconda division.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it was a big mistake to sign him.}

16 Dec 2018 12:10:21
It’s worrying he didn’t seem up for the fight, can Imagine it’s physical up there but it’s can be in games in the premier league.

What do you think is next for him Ed001? A move abroad?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - personally I think we just need to get rid. He is on far too much money for so little willingness or desire to make it.}

16 Dec 2018 09:01:56
So it has arrived, the day many of us look for when the fixtures are announced.

We are in for a very tough game as united and mourinho would like nothing more then to rain on our parade. I am guessing he will play on the counter as attacking us will surely end only one way.

They are not a bad side, they are just not playing to their potential. We need to be at it to beat them and hopefully mane find his scoring boots after Tuesday.

I am hoping for an early goal to settle nerves and force United out but will take a scrappy one nil win all day long. Just don’t want another ‘mourinho masterclass’ where they have kept us out for 90mins and nicked through Fellaini.

Agree6 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 10:52:08
Their major weakness is defence, instead of playing from middle we need to stretch them in wider areas and put some decent crosses which will cause mistakes and panic in their defence.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 08:29:42
So Mourinho was moaning all week about his team's injury list, miraculously most of his injured players return and travel with the squad to face us today.

I hope Klopp took no notice of the whinging moron. the guy really is a clown.

"Lucky Liverpool "according to Mourinho 😂
The guy really is a clown and I wouldn't want him anywhere near my club.

Agree7 1Disagree

{Ed025's Note - thats a terrible thing to say about clowns drogie.. :)

My sincere apologies Ed025, I now expect a ban from the site :-)

{Ed001's Note - just be glad you weren't insulting rodeo clowns or Ed002 would be extremely upset!}

16 Dec 2018 08:55:37
Drogie I am not even close to being a mourinho fan but if you see the quotes I understand what he is saying, basically when you are full of confidence you feel everything is going your way. Let’s hope that continues today.

The media like making him the villain so often twist his words but I’d definitely not want him or his bus week in week out.

Agree1 1Disagree

16 Dec 2018 08:48:04
Haha, brilliant. Sometimes feel I upset the legendary Ed002 when I talk about Jose ;-)

How do you see it going today mate? I know everyone is saying an LFC win but for me, these games are like s Derby, anything can happen, I think it’ll be a really tight game.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - by the way, WYred is right, he never called Liverpool lucky, unless he was calling all his title wins lucky.

I don't do predictions mate, they are unlucky!}

16 Dec 2018 09:03:55
Have to agree WYred, the papers saying he thinks we're lucky, but when you read the actual quote, you are spot on.
Let's hope we stuff 'em today!

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 09:13:28
I’m not so sure mate, Mourinho knows exactly what he’s saying and I’m a firm believer you make your own luck mate.

He quotes the late goal from Origi but we just keep going right until the end, just like Fergie’s teams did, how many games did they nick in the last mins? Did we ride out luck against Napoli? Not really, it was down to poor finishing and a great save from Allison that took it right to the end.

He also banging on about the first goal at Bournemouth being offside, again these decisions equal themselves put over the course of the season .

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 10:53:54
You make your own luck, Jose will need it today, but so will we. Going for a narrow 1-0 win.

As for Ejaria, he was a bad signing.}

Yes they were good weren’t they! And totally agree regarding the banning of them.

I doubt Ejaria has much of a chance with us now.

It is really baffling when you think all those lot were in the LFC squad at around the same time. It really shows you how far we fell from grace (and how far we have come since then! )

I heard the team sheet from the last time we played in Napoli in 2010 and the difference in standard is massive. Carragher was the only starter who would get anywhere near this team, though Gerrard did come on off the bench. We still won, surprisingly.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 00:01:48
Partly because it’s a very informative article and partly because it backs up a theory of mine, i would really recommend an article by Johnathan Wilson on The Guardian Sportbog - it focuses on Allison but breaks down our play this season statistically and explains a few regular questions people ask on here. I posted a while ago my theory that Klopp’s holding us back a bit for the latter half of the season, it runs with that idea better than I ever could!

Agree6 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 07:06:53
Yup good read that, thanks for the heads up!

Ed001, what’s your take on Jonathan Wilson? I’ve only read his articles and haven’t finished Inverting the Pyramid but he seemed to know his stuff, lol. I like how he went about explaining the concepts.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - intelligent enough bloke but bores me to tears to be perfectly honest. I have struggled to get through Inverting the Pyramid for a long time and just find it tedious, so have little idea of if any of it is correct as I have barely got past the start. I am not a big fan of his. I find he is just as tiresome when he is on podcasts, he is a pedant, which is fine, but there is no humour and he is not always as right as he thinks he is.}

16 Dec 2018 09:41:33
Tried to find the article with no luck. Can anyone post a link please?

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 12:06:28
Haha I get what you mean Ed, his podcasts are a bit dry, to say the very least. Thanks anyway mate, let’s hope for some fine result today.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - dry is very much the word. He just has no personality, and I find his writing the same.}

16 Dec 2018 12:07:58
Robbo you should be able to find it if you google Jonathan Wilson and Guardian. It’s his latest article. I’m not sure if links are allowed on this site?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - links are fine, it is just sometimes the spam filter swallows them, so you have to remove the http:// bit off the beginning to avoid that.}

15 Dec 2018 23:47:19
Lovren to be hero or villain tomorrow? I can’t see whether he’s going to have an absolute stormer of a game or be the fall guy. I just have a feeling it will be one or the other. and hope it’s the hero as I like him as a player.
It is panto season after all ;-)

Agree2 8Disagree

16 Dec 2018 00:04:16
nice to see people already looking to blame him and he hasn't even played!

Agree8 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 00:35:01
Genuinely worried tbh. I think he'll be barely able to move.

Weighed down by the £75m striker that'll be in his back pocket.

Agree5 2Disagree

16 Dec 2018 03:21:49
Swish, no one is looking to blame anyone here. The OP mentioned concern, no doubt based on the history of Lovren’s performances in a red shirt, about which Lovren we could well see tomorrow. Neither possibility would be a surprise, we just have to hope he plays against Man Utd like he always plays against Man City.

Agree1 5Disagree

16 Dec 2018 09:35:19
This will be decided by our finishing and De Gea’s ability to save them (as usual) so even if we aren’t our normal solid selves at the back only fluffed chances will cost us today. They are shocking defensively it’s De Gea v Salah, Bobby and Mane.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Dec 2018 21:31:14
Hi Ed's.
So we're almost at the halfway point of the season and although we had many games where we've not been at our attacking best we're unbeaten second in the league (hopefully top by tomorrow) . Essentially it's in our hands even though that's a lot easier said than done. Do you think there will be any changes in January transfer window or do you think we have a squad to cope with the demands. Also what's your opinion on our closest rivals. For me Spurs haven't been playing great but haven't generally been getting results. I thought Chelsea were looking very good until the spurs game which they were awful and some terrible mistakes against Wolves. Arsenal still feel their defence isn't good enough to be title contenders. And City are obviously the front runners but bearable if pressurised especially Walker.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Dec 2018 22:23:24
I don't think there will be any incomings personally. I think we've proved with the squad we have we're going to be fine for the rest of the season. Some people are calling for us to sign another defender in January because we have a few injuries, that'd be silly and won't happen.

I think whoever is second (us or City) will be atleast 10 points ahead of whoever ends up 3rd, it'll be out of Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal of course and come the end of the season none of them will be anywhere near 1st or 2nd.

City will bugger it up somewhere this season and we'll use it to our advantage, I'm so confident about this season it's unreal. Our attackers are finally starting to look like they were last season which is exciting considering they were bang average at best the majority of this season so far, yet we're still unbeaten, good times ahead mate.

Agree4 5Disagree

15 Dec 2018 23:22:40
I really hope for a new striker, as a new deputy for any of the current front three. I feel the team is kinda light on this part. Sturridge and Origi aren't that convincing.

The defense, I really wish to see those youngsters. Been reading here about how some are highly rated, really wanted to see them. I don't even know how they look like ;)

Agree2 2Disagree

15 Dec 2018 23:18:53
Another positive (albeit strange one) is we seem to be getting the luck of the green with some decisions like offsides etc that we just didn’t get last year. I feel with VVD in defence whoever plays along side him will improve their game whether it be Lovren, Matip or Gomez. The midfield has been steady even if not particularly flashy, but in the last few weeks we’ve seen a steady improvement from Keita and Fabinho, and hopefully we may even see Ox before the end of the season. And as you say the front 3 are looking good at the moment right in time. It’s a shame we have Wolves in the FA Cup where it might be difficult to play the youth or take the risk.
Let’s hope the pressure for City to deliver on the European stage causes a few problems domestically.

Agree3 1Disagree

15 Dec 2018 23:48:16
Salah there's more chance of us messing it up than city. I only say that coz their bench is much stronger than ours.

Agree3 3Disagree

16 Dec 2018 07:20:39
I personally feel if Salah and Mané actually looked for each other more in and around the box we would prosper so much more in the goal tally. It seems they some times want the glory for themselves rather than the team. I think both would have more goals each as well as assists. It's nice to have a friendly rivalry within the team but that shouldn't be at the expense of the team and results.

Agree1 5Disagree

16 Dec 2018 08:19:02
I still think we could do with another wide player in January. Someone like Pulisic would be great and give Salah and Mane some rest and competition for places.
Has everyone forgotten how knackered our wide players were towards the end of last season that Klopp left one of Mane and Salah out of the lineup in the league games? I bet there will be a lot of grumpy posters on this site when Klopp will be forced to choose between league games and the UCL (if we go far) and field weakened sides to balance fatigue and injuries. Shaqiri can play out wide but his best performances have been through the middle and he is no natural winger.
Yes, we are all happy with how the team is doing and how the squad depth has improved from previous seasons but remember we are going toe to toe with Man City who are still favorites for all competitions they are in and will be till the very end. There is still potential to upgrade our squad (City still have a much superior squad to us) and if the opportunity arises in January to sign a genuine wide player like PUlisic to replace the likes of Lallana and Solanke (who have contributed nothing to our season and are unlikely to do so), then we should make it happen. That's how we will win trophies. WE shouldn't just be happy with what we have, coz City will strengthen again and Klopp needs to do the same.

Agree4 0Disagree

16 Dec 2018 08:37:05
Pool77, you are not watching the same Liverpool team as me mate. Just take the last 5 minutes or so in Tuesday’s game against Napoli as a recent example. Salah provided two perfect assists for Mane, one a pull back inside the penalty area and one a through ball but unfortunately Sadio didn’t have his shooting boots on and put both wide. In my opinion, both have got the balance about right between going for goal themselves and passing to a better placed teammate. There will be the odd occasion when each of them gets a little touch of goal fever but generally I think they are doing OK.
