I am pleased lallana is finally getting the credit he deserves. I have always rated him and he is now producing. Well done lad.

He was mostly frustrating in my opinion - he has always had all the tools in his locker, but couldn't quite use them all at the appropriate times. He appears to have gotten to grips with Klopp's ideas.

I too am delighted, partially because I have always said that he could be a great player if he knew what he should be doing. Most people seemed to want rid of him and take a big hit on his purchase price, so I am delighted that his high price tag is beginning to look like a fair price. Hopefully this time next year it will look cheap!

Long may his Cruyf turns lead to even more goals.

I've criticised the lad in the past for his endless turns but fair play to him, he's played very well this season. Deserves a pat on the back🙂.

After discussion yesterday about Curtis Davis and his opinions on how Liverpool are playing at the moment, I went on his Twitter page and there saw a link to Paddy Berger's goal against Charlton in 2004. What a hit son!

Quick question Ed001. what's your thoughts on Totti as a man and player? Would you have had him at LFC?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I never really took any notice of him, as Italian football has been so awful to watch in his time. I know me mam loves him, but that is purely so she can wear a shirt with Totti on the back, bless her.}

27 Sep 2016 15:30:33
I know Gerrard had/ has a man crush on him.

Klopp having worked in media before has really mastered the art of saying everything but giving away nothing. U will have thought 1 hr show he would have given away his tactics but no! How he did that?

Agree3 Disagree2

27 Sep 2016 13:19:54
Next thing you know we will be praising Klopp for the way he handles bathroom breaks. I love having Klopp as a manager but can we refrain from praising his every move? It's just an interview.

It's magic, isn't it?

Hi Ed001,

What are your views on Houillers time as manager? Did you like him as well?

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - mixed, I liked the trophies he won, but hated having to sit there and watch such boring, negative football. I also hated that the coaching was so bad that every player regressed at the club. Nice enough bloke outside of the game, but not a nice bloke as a manager. Most of all, I can't forgive him for choosing to side with the poison dwarf and sell Fowler. Especially the way it was done, which left a nasty taste in the mouth.}

27 Sep 2016 11:37:35
Yeah Fowler really didn't deserve that. How did Owen have that influence at the club?

Agree2 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - because he was Ged's baby. Ged loved him and did everything based around him.}

27 Sep 2016 12:09:58
I take it you were relieved when we decided to not go for him in 05? Did he want the return to Liverpool?

Agree3 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - yes and yes, he was begging to return but Rafa didn't want the poisonous little weasel.}

27 Sep 2016 12:22:29
Cheers for the responses Ed.

Agree2 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

27 Sep 2016 13:04:03
Can I ask exactly what happened between Thommo and Fowler Ed? It's a bit before my time and I have heard varying accounts of what went on.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - it was a set up to get Robbie out mate. Fowler was taking practice shots and Thommo said the ball hit him on the nose and they had a big argument about it. Really it was just an excuse for Ged to sell him and not lose too many of the fans, who adored Fowler over everyone.}

27 Sep 2016 13:24:09
fowler being sold was like the Kennedy assassination everyone remembers where they where when the news broke. Gutted I was, horrible day.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 13:42:28
To be fair, if he wanted to hit that nose he wouldn't have had much trouble!

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 14:55:53
Looks to be Fowler having the last laugh though. He's been a great ambassador for he club the past few years popping up all over the place and seems to be happy to be back, meanwhile the little muppet is probably digging through discarded betting tickets at the track.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 15:12:08
Difficult, even for Fowler, to avoid hitting that nose.

Houllier manipulated the media, the club and the fans.
Please read Robbies autobiography its deals with this issue brilliantly.
Houlliers signings towards the end were pitiful
Rember these greats
Dioff (spelling)
Cheyroo ( the new zidane Houllier quoted)
La Tallec
Jummy traore
Singa pongolle
I could go on and on.

Houllier shafted Roy Evans,
Let Mcmaamen go on a free . Let Michael Owen run his contract down so so he could leave for a ridiculous low price.
HE was ruthless.
He also wanted to succeed somuch he nearly killed himself.

After see what he did a villa.

Short notice I know, but I'm back home in Liverpool this Friday for only 10 days. Anyone know how I can get a ticket to the Swansea game? I'm coming from Oz so will be a bit tired but have a hire car and am willing to make the drive. Cheers in advance.

Agree3 Disagree2

27 Sep 2016 10:24:06
I think it's all sold out mate, unless somebody knows of website I'm unaware of.

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Sep 2016 10:32:04
Disagree with what exactly?

27 Sep 2016 12:14:15
Ignore it mate, it's just the trolls.

27 Sep 2016 14:23:03
Few people on twitter who do tickets. Worth a look.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 14:28:27
Always worth phoning the the home team directly. A few times I've bought tickets that way, ticket was for home stand but blagged my way into the away end because of my Scouse accent.

I think getting them from Liverpool is a no go

I'm currently trying to get some myself as it's my birthday on Saturday, revenge for the 3-1 loss last season would be nice.

There's a feel good feeling for fans everywhere. We're an LFC Official Supporters group from Wellington, New Zealand and we are currently getting dozens of people along each week to a bar that opens for us almost every week - to put that in context, games are often at 1am on a Monday morning NZT or 8am on other days. As the club goes well, more and more people are willing to leave the comfort of watching at home, to head out and spend time with other fans all while contributing to local charities under the LFC banner.

27 Sep 2016 00:11:10
Hi mate I love Wellington great city good to hear that support, i now based in Brisbane and there is also wonderful support, enjoy the season man and I really feel we all can push this club forward with positive energy.

Love Wellington so much. Used to live there still miss Wellington. All the best.

The best part of all this season is to seee every signing Klopp has made settle in seamlessly.

Cannot remember one season before where every signing a previous manager has made hit the ground running.

Money well spent this season, for a change!

Agree11 Disagree2

26 Sep 2016 22:52:04
One thing what worried me was this. We got quite a few players in, I thought it'd be a struggle for them to gel into a team (as per usual) but Klopp made it work immediately. incredible really. Very happy with the new team we have. They're working as a team and not just as individuals like a lot of teams are.

Agree7 Disagree4

27 Sep 2016 10:54:37
I'm hoping this is because Klopp said 'I want players to have certain attributes to fit my style' rather than just 'I want players'.

Agree2 Disagree1

27 Sep 2016 12:46:04
Shows how important it is with a good preseason.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 22:11:22
Isn't it just fantastic how positive everything is right now? the club, the fans, the players and the manager. everybody is positive! fantastic to see, great times ahead! I havn't been this excited about Liverpool for a long time!

What I also love seeing is, the players when in training look to be happy and gettingg the job done at the same time.

Ed1 If I may ask a question (sorry if you've previously answered this) - What do you expect to happen with Sakho, possibly out in January?

Have a good evening all.

Agree1 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - The club would be happy to sell him.}

26 Sep 2016 22:20:43
Cheers ed2 - is there any clubs interested in him at present?

I never thought he'd turn out the way he has, sooner he's gone the better.

Agree1 Disagree4

{Ed002's Note - He had options from Stoke, Besiktas and West Bromwich Albion in the summer but had higher aspirations. Perhaps a loan in January but I don't see anyone chasing to buy him right now.}

26 Sep 2016 22:30:21
Sakho has handled his situation terribly. Instead of owning up he has gone on to say that the LFC is lying.

The club supported Sakho throughout his ban and went on to act like a clown. I was a big fan of Sakho but he has made his bed and needs to be removed as soon as possible.

We cannot afford distractions.

Agree8 Disagree5

27 Sep 2016 01:27:44
Thanks ed2 and I agree max.

Agree3 Disagree3

27 Sep 2016 04:27:11
The thing is max, they have lied about his situation. Rightly or wrongly, he was said not be fit and all these excuses about his fitness instead of just avoiding to comment on the situation or saying, I pick the team and sahko is not in it this week. So whilst I agree, sahko handled the situation badly by posting such things on social media, he isn't wrong that they are lying. What he has to understand is that they have to explain his absence somehow and that's probably the least controversial way of doing it, and he should be mature enough to know what happened between him and the manager and put his head down and try get back in the team and eventually reconcile with klopp.

Hopefully klopp is the type of guy that keeps the door open for him, because sahko obviously loves the club. I like sahko, but we don't know what's going on behind the scenes. It would be a shame to lose arguably one of our better centre backs as those 4 cbs really are quality. But that's the way it goes sometimes.

Agree3 Disagree6

27 Sep 2016 04:33:30
sakho is finished and its all his own fault.

Agree5 Disagree3

27 Sep 2016 09:04:09
Kman92 i don't think this classifies as lying. The Club was honest with him that they didn't want him and that he should look for another club even if that is on loan. He had a few offers he rejected them saying he will fight for his place.

2 months down the line instead of keeping his head down and training hard he is ranting that he was lied to.

Surely it would be worse for him if klopp came out and said he's fit but not fancied.

Agree2 Disagree2

27 Sep 2016 10:21:58
Exactly pakred.

Agree1 Disagree2

27 Sep 2016 10:58:51
Depends on your definition of fitness surely. Sakho hasn't played a conpetitive game since April (? ) so, being literal, he certainly isn't fit enough to play a game with the intensity levels we've seen in recent weeks.

And no, I haven't looked at what was said by Sakho/ Klopp, can't be bothered with the nonsense. I like Sakho as a player but if he's disrupting the team then he can do one for me.

Hi eds hope you don't mind me posting this here need your guys help!

So 10 years ago mine and my families life was changed forever when my dad sadly passed away. So in his memory I am walking the Yorkshire three peaks raising money for Winston's Wish (a child bereavement support charity) with the aim of making the grieving process slightly easier for one child/ family. My target is to raise £500 but if I raise double I will do the challenge in fancy dress!
Anything you can donate towards the target would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - No problem Craig - please provide a link for those wishing to donate.}

26 Sep 2016 22:16:53
Yes please post a link I'd be happy to help.

Great charity Onceared. I would be happy to donate but i want photographic evidence of the fancy dress mind😉. Good luck.
