Weekend question: would you rather win the lottery, or Liverpool win the league?

Agree2 4Disagree

23 Mar 2019 17:46:44
Lottery I'm afraid.

Agree9 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 17:47:56
Liverpool winning the league would mean the world to me, but winning the lottery would mean the world to my whole family, so It's got to be the lottery. But it's a tough choice!

Agree9 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 18:04:29
I choose lottery even if it meant Everton winning the league.

23 Mar 2019 18:15:11
Lottery, then I'll bribe the FA to give Liverpool all the decisions like Man City have done *straightens tinfoil hat*.

Buy another mansion Salah - instant feel good 😁
Btw, been meaning to ask - are you fully healthy now? Recovered?

23 Mar 2019 23:52:27
Lol that's true TJ.

Thank you very much for asking mate, I'm doing really well :) 100% now. I'm a firm believer in 'everything happens for a reason' what happened last year changed me somewhat and for the better so I continue to look at the positives mate! I hope you are doing well?

24 Mar 2019 01:43:55
Good to hear man.
I am doing well sir! We are very much the lucky few aren't we? Maybe folks (including myself lol) need to sometime remind ourselves just how good we have it
Take care good fella!

Watching in the LFC Legends game, announcing the team for the 2nd half:

Glen Johnson: *Crowd Cheers*
Salif Diao: *Crowd Cheers*
Djibril Cisse: *Crowd Cheers*
Michael Owen: *Very muted and mixed reaction*.

Agree6 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 16:41:12
Gerrard late winner into The Kop end btw, for those interested.

Fowler and Cisse scored too.

Agree5 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 16:12:32
I'm surprised it was even muted to be honest. Not much love for him for the way he left and then who he signed for. Certainly not the most popular player to leave Lfc, up there with Hadji Diouf for me.

Agree6 4Disagree

23 Mar 2019 17:32:30
Let's just hope we haven't missed our last opportunity to boo him!

Agree4 2Disagree

23 Mar 2019 17:39:01
Hadji Diouf? . fair enough, Owens done some things wrong but to compare him with that scumbag Diouf is crazy! Shouldn't have joined Madrid the way he did but at least while he was here he was a class act on the field, he was the ballon d'or winner for Christ sake, must have been doing something right.

Agree8 3Disagree

23 Mar 2019 17:41:08
For God's sake he was a professional plying his trade and he gave me
Some great moments.

Agree10 2Disagree

23 Mar 2019 18:08:02
I’d rather focus on the great memories Owen gave me whilst he was a Liverpool player rather than the negatives surrounding his departure and subsequent career.

Agree8 6Disagree

23 Mar 2019 19:56:41
Who's Owen again?

Agree7 3Disagree

23 Mar 2019 20:51:54
Oh grow up for heavens sake. When I first started going to Anfield, all we ever sang was 'Michael Owen scores a goal, hallelujah'. He did a lot for our club. So what he left, and signed for utd. Paul Ince did the same and we cheered him. Xavier and Barmby came to us from Everton and we cheered them. Get over it for christ sake, the man is a Liverpool legend thus why he deserves to play in these legend matches. Always thought we were the best fans in the world till I saw some of the trolls on this site. Disgusting.

Agree4 2Disagree

23 Mar 2019 21:19:15
Taking it too far to suggest booing him.

Agree0 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 21:54:14
Or we could focus on his bullying and exploitation of youth players? 😁.

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 21:56:18
So when are Diao and Cisse classed as legends?

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 22:15:52
Couldn't agree more Istanbul. He played very well for us but we couldn't win the league so he moved on. He wanted to come back but it never happened. So he went somewhere else. Is the hatred because he got a Premier league medal with utd?

Agree2 1Disagree

24 Mar 2019 01:47:24
ye i rekon let the michael owen stuff go. was nice to see cisse someone posted asking who was the player we were most excited about and I forgot about him. definitely cissr.

Quiet on here during international breaks eh? What's everyone's Liverpool goal of the season so far? I rate Mane's against Bayern, even though neuer made it easier for him.

Agree7 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 09:35:43
Salah vs Bournemouth away when he virtually walked it in.

Salah vs Bournemouth home when Firmino backheeled it to him.

Salah vs Napoli from the right angle.

Mane backheel vs Watford.

Mane chest and volley vs Man Utd.

Mane chip vs Bayern.

Mane chip vs Cardiff on the break.

Firmino turn in the box and finish vs PSG.

Firmino run and finish vs Arsenal.

Sturridge screamer vs Chelsea.

Arnold's free kick vs Watford.

Origi vs Wolves in the FA cup from outside the box.

I don't know mate 😂 take your pick. Probably Mane's backheel or Firmino sitting down the entire Arsenal defence.

Agree5 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 10:41:15
Goal of the season is an Origi tap in! The Sturridge strike at Chelsea and Manes backheel are my excellent, one eye Firmino v PSG was one of my fav moments of the season but Mane v Bayern (turn and chip) is probably the one I'd pick right now.

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 10:54:03
Mane vs United was lovely, great pass from Fabinho superb finish. Probably the game that got Mourinho the sack too.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 14:12:07
Firmino's run against Arsenal was so good that it made Torreira fall over whilst he was at least 8 yards away from it.

23 Mar 2019 14:27:09
On reflection, firmino against arsenal was a cracker, forgot about that one.

Some great goals this season. What about assists? I think Pickfords assist for Origi’s goal was my favourite. Pickford kept our title hopes alive that day.

23 Mar 2019 19:04:47
Sturridge screamer vs Chelsea. Nothing else even close except Origi for what it meant.

Did anyone else see France footballs list of all time greatest managers and Bob Paisley's not in the top ten, I've seen a few of these now and he never seems to be in the top few, why do all these polls etc keep overlooking him?

Agree3 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - because they are done by people who know f all about football.}

23 Mar 2019 09:26:27
Paisley won more European cups in 9 years than Ferguson won in 26. He is the greatest ever for me.

Agree8 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - agreed. Paisley was incredible.}

23 Mar 2019 09:49:17
Paisley was the best ever, is the best ever and always will be, the best ever. These daft lists mean bugger all, probably wrote by some 20 year old kid in his bedroom, what it comes down to is the truth of things, history etc and imo there's no touching Paisley, no modern manager is even close and I doubt in my life time I'll ever see it. Let the younger generation believe what they want to believe but the be all and end all is, they haven't got a bloody clue what they're talking about lol.

Agree8 4Disagree

For me he's the best, I even named my son Bobby after him 😁.

We live in an age of revisionism and short term thinking. People are now questioning that Cruyff, Pele and Maradona aren’t the greatest that ever played because they didn’t feature in FIFA or saw them on Sky, it’s ridiculous. The idiots are winning.

Agree5 2Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:37:35
Precisely FranklyMrShankly. People are far more interested in revising history, than in making it. Shallow thinking.

Agree4 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:38:11
Agreed that Paisley at 26 is ridiculous.
Shankly is at 10, though how Guardiola is at 5 already is beyond me.
Paisley somewhere in the top 10, although I agree with Michels heading the list.
It’s terribly difficult to choose between Shankly and Paisley, never mind the others.
Though for what he built and stood for, Shankly will always be our King.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 14:25:39
Well Frankly, OBVIOULSY how you compare Pele to a current player is based on his 'icon' FIFA Ultimate Team card. Looking at footage of him play? Reading about him? Listening to what other pros said? Nah. Who needs any of that?

If he doesn't score you as many goals as the Cristiano Ronaldo Team of the Week card that you got after opening 400 quid's worth of packs that you bought with Mommy's credit card then he's clearly not as good.

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 14:41:39
Who were our worst ever managers?

23 Mar 2019 18:31:18

Hodgson up there too

However there were probably some horrors before my time that- as people have alluded to above- we don’t look at.

Paisley was genius unfortunately he's career was/ will always be overshadowed by another maestro in Shanks.

Adrian Durham gave his top 5 all time coaches across all sports on the radio the other day, he had Paisley as number 1.

France Football prolly never heard of the great Bob Paisley. Paisley is simply the best. had he coached as long as Gergie did, he could prolly have won near 40 trophies.

Morning eds
Is there a profile on Jadon Sancho?

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he hasn't played enough to get one mate. Most of his games are just sub appearances. He needs more full games.}

23 Mar 2019 09:23:26
Not been massively impressed with him when I've seen him play to be honest.

His decision making is dreadful. He tries to skin the player in front of him every time when better options would've been a pass or an early cross. He loses possession 9 times out of 10 or ends up poking it back to the midfield after he's crowded out.

He is still only 18 though so he has time to develop. Frankly though, he's not good enough to start regularly at the highest level.

His market value will far exceed his actual worth right now. I see lots of people on other forums pining for him when we've got "potential" in our own ranks. Most notably Brewster who made Sancho and Hudson-Odoi look like his back up cast for the England youth sides.

Agree2 11Disagree

23 Mar 2019 10:10:39
Sancho, Hudson-Odoi, Rashford, Rice, what a crop of young talent England have.
Even I enjoyed watching them last night.
Liverpool old boy Sterling was very good too, told you he was a miss to our set-up.
I really hope that Brewster, particularly after his injury, gets to their level.

Agree4 5Disagree

23 Mar 2019 10:24:29
I must admit I've never seen him play, well I have for about 15 minutes or so. So I can't judge but a friend of mine has seen him play plenty and has said exactly what you're saying MK. He's very young and needs to learn a hell of a lot by the sounds of things, if he is a good lad and concentrates on his football over his lifestyle then who knows, maybe there's a star in there somewhere, the next few years will be interesting for him.

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 10:44:20
he is young and needs to learn a hell of a lot. stunning analysis for a kid. and given he is already performing at decent level in a european league and now as an international, I think English fans can get a little excited.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 10:51:23
I reply to MK Scouser, usually mate we agree on stuff but this for is not fair.
The kid is 18 years of age took a very brave decision to leave everything he knows family wise footabll wise and go to a foreign country with a new language and commit to buckling down and hopefully getting a chance in the squad
Well this season he has easily been the biggest break through star in Germany, so much so that he has the highest amount of assists in Europe only matched by the great Messi himself
This has led to him being called up by his country which has to be applauded.
if im not wrong did he not make a goal for sterling on the highest level last night?
I think your assessment need to be looked at as he is 18 years of age and needs to be judged as an 18 year old
is he playing any worse then Salah is right now who is making the worng choices a lot of the time in games recently and he is a season vet compared to Sancho
for me this kid is better then wilson and will go further in football then Wilson will but I bet you will not agree
If Sancho was in our Squad coming off the bench no one would be complaining
Just can't agree when I hear people slating a youngster like Sancho who showed wisdom and guts to leave man city and go abroad
how many of us on here could of done that and achieved what he has so far at 18?

Agree9 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:10:57
Sounds like your mate sees what I see then Salah; potential.

Its easy to hype him up off the back of some good cameo appearances against tired legs playing for a very attacking Dortmund team, but when he starts games he still struggles to stay in games and fades into the background. He's got magic in his feet and can produce spectacular moments, but his desire to show off or to be the star actually has an adverse affect on his game. He tries too hard I suppose, which is better than not trying at all! Ed001 is bang on though, we won't know how good he can be until he starts affecting games in which he starts and gets more time on the pitch.

I recently read an article that placed him at number 1 in the top 50 young players in world football. Hoever was 23rd and Brewster was 31st. The same article didn't even have Mbappe in the top 50 so that shows you how misguided media hype is 🤦‍♂️

If he stays grounded and improves his all around game, Sancho will be a great player for sure. He's just a little bit over rated/ hyped right now though and I am worried he's being given everything too soon because he seems to act (from an outsiders perspective) like he believes he is as good as the media say. He's certainly not worth the £100m people say he is worth, put it that way! Let's see how he reacts to his first set back; a bad season, an injury set back, media pressure etc. Then we'll see how much he wants it.

Agree1 7Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:22:29
It was the top 50 teenagers MK, Mbappe is 20 now lol. And agree on Sancho, got a long way to go to fulfill his potential, drifts in and out of games quite a bit.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:26:46
MK Scouser are you aware that Sancho has the most appearances this season in the whole Dortmund Squad and is the third highest goal scorer in the whole squad, and has the most assist in the whole squad not to mention in the whole of Europe
you comments are not making sense when this figures are mentioned mate sorry.

Agree5 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:31:42
Johncrow, you are putting words in my mouth mate. I've not said he is a bad player anywhere. Nor have I denied his ability. Or his bravery. I can only give my honest opinion and in my opinion he is still very raw and needs to be given time before we all decide how his future will go.

2 seasons ago it was Pulisic everyone raved about in Dortmund, getting loads of goals and assists off the bench and where is he now? He has struggled to transition from prospect under no pressure to star performer. I think Chelsea may regret spending so much money on him but maybe he will bounce back from his poor season?

History is littered with examples. Januzaj, Bojan, Tello etc. It's easy to shine in a great team when nothing is expected of you and you play against tired legs with explosive pace.

Wilson is different to Sancho in that he has already over come his set backs and answered questions of his ability. After being capped at 16 years old and dubbed to Welsh Messi he stopped putting in 100% to improve and he fell off the pace completely. He then had a few injuries and it's taken 5 years for him to put himself back into contention for a long term future at Liverpool. It's still only contention though.

If anything, you bringing up Wilson just backs up my point that it is too early to call him a future star. Whilst I'm on the subject of Wilson, yes I do think he is currently better than Sancho because he can start games week in week out and improve those around him and not fade in and out of games. He's also 3 years older though and Sancho undeniably has more raw ability.

So I do agree that Sancho has the talent to go further in football than Wilson. That was just you putting words in my mouth. Jordan Ibe had the raw ability to go further than Sterling though, but he couldn't make the transition from prospect to star either.

Raw ability is just that until you harness it into consistency. If Sancho has a bad season next year the same people comparing him (even loosely) to Messi and Salah like you just have, will throw him on the scrapheap. In reality how he reacts to that adversity will be the measure of him as a character and as a player. For me, we'll see how good Sancho truly is in a couple of years and right now you should just enjoy his youthful exuberance and not put too much pressure on the lad to be something special. Potential is not guaranteed.

Agree3 5Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:47:05
That explains that to be fair then Scholes18! Glad you understand my point though. I'm not sure what John is reading to be honest because it's not my posts 😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:49:01
I don't think there has been any slating at all (on this thread) . Just the point being made that it is still too soon for him to be anointed with the keys to the kingdom. Another website has named him the at the top of the best 50 players of the next generation and written about his (supposed) desire to win the Ballon d'Or. That's a crazy amount of pressure to place on a young kid, and it usually does not turn out well. These kids are being given keys to Ferraris before knowing how to load a washing machine and doing the laundry. The probabilities all say that very few come even close to the superhuman levels they are projected to achieve.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:51:55
I put no words in yuor mouth mate lol just simply stating facts
you initial comments where that
"His decision making is dreadful. He tries to skin the player in front of him every time when better options would've been a pass or an early cross. He loses possession 9 times out of 10 or ends up poking it back to the midfield after he's crowded out".
does that stats I quoted to your reflect your statement
you have mentioned puslic now ibe and who so ever else
We are talking only about Sancho and wilson and no one else
to someone who had never heard of sancho before yuo made him sound like our ex player Mark Gonzales all pace no common sense and passes back when he has players around him
your wrong MK and no amount of bringing in players will help that
the kid has done fantastically well so far in his career
Pulsic plays for USA no pressure to get into that squad
Wilson palys for Wales again no pressure to get into that sqaud
ibe never played for england so the comparsion are not vaild
at this age for Sancho to be a top guy for a top european team and be starting for his national team after leaving man city youth team at the start of the season is amazing imo.

Agree8 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 12:17:44
Johncrow, stats are not relevant to the full 90 minutes performance. You can overplay 9 times out of 10 as I said, and then score or create a goal on the 1 occasion it comes off for you. Then the stats say you played well but maybe the other 9 occassions when there was a better option, you could've had a more positive overall affect on the team by making the right decision. Sancho' s best impact on the game yesterday was when he made a run in behind off the ball. Not the 10 times he ran at somebody with the ball and then gave away possession. One day he will learn that he is better off passing and then looking for a return pass if the option is available to him.

You are quoting stats and facts to me but there seems to be very little subjectivity to your argument, and no analysis. I'm not going to deny he's statistically had a good season and that he's great for his age.

Do you remember the Scouse Cafu, Jon Flanagan? His first season he was arguably the best young defender in Europe and was playing better than a lot of senior players in his position. People thought he'd be the future of the club and a potential captain. Then he got injured badly and struggled to make a come back. Then there was his controversy away from the game and now here we are 4 years later and the Scouse Cafu, was actually just the Scouse Danny Simpson.

Sancho has great stats, and once again, I'm not saying he isn't a great talent. I'm just saying I've not been as impressed by him as others. He is talked about as if he is the complete article already, but in my opinion he is not. He has magical moments rather than great performances for 90 minutes.

I'm only giving you examples because they are relevant to how football fans jump the gun all the time and overhype younger players. I know, because I've been guilty of it myself in the past and I've learned from my own mistakes. You might remember how certain I was that Brad Smith would be a great player? Making his debut for Australia and Liverpool and looking every bit a future star, blowing away youth football etc. How wrong was I then? He had a set back and didn't react in the right way.

You don't have the authority to tell me I am wrong because football is subjective, especially when talking about overall performance or young player potential. You can disagree by all means, but in my opinion he is still raw. There is no right or wrong when discussing a players ability and potential.

I'm not going to tell you that you're wrong either. You are well entitled to your opinion that Sancho is the best creative player in Europe already and better than Salah right now. I don't have to agree but football cannot be quantified by statistics.

I'll have to leave it at that because there is nothing else I can add if you have made your mind up that a subjective debate has a right and wrong side.

Agree2 3Disagree

23 Mar 2019 12:28:55
Spot on ArAy1969. Everyone knows about his talents and positive sides to his game. All I was doing was pointing out his flaws (that people are ignoring) to try and bring a bit of sensibility to the ongoing debate around him lately. I can almost guarantee his coaches aren't ignoring those flaws, and if they are they are doing him a dis-service because his potential is huge if he gets the right advice and support to improve him as a man and as a player.

Absolutely superb young player, think he will easily be in the top 5 players in the world by the time he is 21.he's that good. i would love us to go out and get him, and while people will say it's too much for someone that won't play. he would play, he would get a lot of game time for ANY premier league team over the season.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 14:34:01
I cannot believe Dortmund and now England pick a player who gives the ball away 9 times out of 10 every game. With those stats I might lace my boots back up and give professional football another crack. I only give it away 7 to 8 times out of 10 normally.

Agree2 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 14:48:37
Anybody who’s isn’t impressed with Jadon Sancho isn’t watching him objectively. For him to be playing the way he is at the highest level at the age of 18 is exceptional.

Agree3 1Disagree

23 Mar 2019 15:03:25
JK23, I can only assume you are not English. "9 times out of 10" is a cliché British phrase. It doesn't literally mean 90% of the time he loses possession. It just means "a lot" basically. A bit like how "unstoppable" usually just means really good. Obviously every player can be stopped!

Agree1 2Disagree

23 Mar 2019 15:13:45
MK Scouser mate, I reckon you need to watch more of Sancho. I watch dortmund whenever I can (fun team) and the lads incredible, not sure how applicable half your criticisms are. Yes stats aren't the full story but if you regularly watched the lad you'd know his were reflective of his overall game, easily the best teenager in world football. None of the examples of overhyped players you gave were performing like Sancho in a top league.

The comparison to Wilson is also a strange one, not sure how you can compare an 18 year old smashing it at the highest level to a 22 year old in the championship. I'm a massive Wilson fan and hope he plays a part next year but they're not in the same league and never have been.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 15:40:05
Mk I am born and bread British mate and my job has allowed me to travel the world and I believe 9 out of 10 is 90% in every country I have been too. Anyway mate I read further down you said sarcasm is lost on people and clearly mine was lost here. No way do I lose the the ball 7-8 times out of 10 I am literally like the modern day Alonso.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 16:29:57
Yeah it went over my head JK23. My bad 😂

I got the exact reaction I expected overall to be honest though. Not jumping on the hype train and maintaining a degree of scelticism is always controversial!

Have a good day lads.

Agree2 4Disagree

23 Mar 2019 17:43:13
Put it this way when he decides he wants to return to England the whole top 6 in Europe's best league will be beating Dortmunds door down trying to get him.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 20:21:00
Hardly a case of jumping on a hype train, lad's been fantastic all season and in youth leagues. Less scelticism more empty criticism, but to each their own. At the end of the day it is a game.

23 Mar 2019 21:58:28
Empty criticism would be baseless abuse with no explanation or constructive points. Patronisation is not going to change my mind is it.

23 Mar 2019 23:59:32
I don’t think there is a ‘hype train’ going on with Sancho, I think most people just agree that he is one of the best teenagers in the world right now. Of course he isn’t worth £100 million, no 18 year old is, Mbappe wasn’t worth £160 million when PSG bought him a couple of years ago.

At that age though you are also paying for potential and Sancho has bags of it, if he keeps improving over the next 2-3 years £100 million will look like a bargain. The truth is that no 18 year old is playing close to his level right now, most of them are still playing reserve team football or sitting on the bench.

Morning eds
Am just amazed at the absolute garbage that PSG come out with and as for Neymar well he just fit the club perfectly!

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - PSG are a joke mate.}

23 Mar 2019 08:23:37
Good morning and a good read as usual Ed. I wish neymar would shut his mouth and just play proper football. The lad hasn't a clue and will blame Rabiot for everything like the club has done.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 09:04:33
Great read as always Ed001. What do you think will happen with the case against Ronaldo? Will it be because he is so rich and powerful he will just avoid it till it goes away? Seems to be working so far.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - well he already made one large payment to her and it has not stopped the case, so hard to say. Usually you would think so, but me too has changed things a little so hopefully the truth will out and the end result will be according to that, whatever that is.}

23 Mar 2019 09:49:41
Thank you very much Ed, have a good Saturday mate.

{Ed001's Note - you too mate.}

I hope so too but the world isn't a fair place. Hopefully some good can come from the girl raising awareness.

Hi Ed002 and Ed001
I know that this may be too much, but could you write off all the names that Liverpool has on target?

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what you mean. I get my info from the Fat Kit from Bolton, as I understand it, Ed001 just Google’s Liverpool Red Alert for his news.}

Perhaps some posters are wondering why, on a public forum designed to share football rumours, someone is copping flak for sharing a football rumour?

{Ed001's Note - because he was lying to pretend he had sources, rather than just saying he had read on social media.}

Seano I am well up for a rumour. I love a good "my mates taxi driver rumour". But I have to agree with Ed001 on this one 😉.

Morning Ed.

I find it a real shame Giroud is struggling to get game time at Chelsea because imo he should be on before Morata and Higuain. I really rate the lad.

Thanks mate I hope you have a top Friday!

Agree6 7Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He gets on before Morata. In fact he gets on before all of the Athletico Madrid players.}

22 Mar 2019 08:17:11
Hahaha yes Ed2, bad wording from me there!

Agree7 3Disagree

22 Mar 2019 08:36:22
I agree Salah, he shouldn’t be talking about going down a level to get game time. If he’s not getting enough at Chelsea then I’m sure plenty of the other mid table PL clubs would be more than happy to make him their first choice striker.

Agree5 6Disagree

22 Mar 2019 09:15:34
I’m a big Giroud fan as well. Would love him at Liverpool because of his link up play and the fact he knows where the goal is and how to get a run on a defender, especially at the front post. Not sure that we’d be able to give him the game time he wants either though. I thought he was made for Chelsea and a more controlling style of play under Sarri, but what do I know?

Agree2 11Disagree

22 Mar 2019 09:15:46
Cheers by the way ed.

Agree0 3Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate. And it is a shame about Giroud, he is a very good striker, just lacks pace.}

22 Mar 2019 10:09:08
Not a fan. Decent player but I just don't like him. Never trust a man who's chin is bigger than his face. Disliked Jimmy Hill too.

Chelsea played better with giroud and hazard as the 2 forwards. Higuian is the better player than olivier, he just needs to adapt to the Premier league. Can see giroud leaving the prem.

Despite my earlier comment, I wouldn't mind him as an option from the bench. With robbo, trent, hendo and milner whipping in crosses when we need a goal.

Agree2 5Disagree

22 Mar 2019 10:17:09
I really thought Tom huddlestone was going to be a big player. I remember playing an old fifa, always used to sign him. He was like a 3rd rate Gerrard. Could tackle, strong in the air, could pass and could shoot. Is he old now? What went wrong with his career?

Agree1 7Disagree

{Ed001's Note - really? He was crap, like a knock-off Jan Molby with a millionth of the ability.}

22 Mar 2019 10:28:52
A millionth of the ability Ed? You must be feeling a generous today mate lol :) .

Agree6 5Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it is a good day mate, so yes, I probably did over-exaggerate Huddlestone's level.}

22 Mar 2019 10:29:11
Must have been an early fifa when he still showed promise. Played for England didn't he?

Agree1 4Disagree

22 Mar 2019 10:35:00
Lol glad it's a good day so far for you mate, take care.

Agree4 5Disagree

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, hope yours goes well too, take care.}

22 Mar 2019 11:25:58
I would rate Giroud as a backup striker - doesn’t suit our style of play perfectly but he’s a better link player and finisher than given credit for and quite capable of leading the line with pacy wingers outside him.

He’d also be perfect for when we need something different in the last 20mins against a packed defence, and Trent and Robbo need someone to aim at.

Agree2 5Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has no interest in Giroud, and Chelsea has been approached by another two sides already.}

22 Mar 2019 11:32:22
It is a good day Ed. I'm glad to hear you are doing well.

Agree0 3Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I am glad you are good too mate.}

22 Mar 2019 13:36:11
Good form by Huddersfield. Was reading the story this morning. Nice to see prem teams can still take the time out.

Agree1 2Disagree

22 Mar 2019 12:35:42
Fair enough Ed - was just a comment on him as a player . Would be shocked if we went there though.

Agree0 1Disagree

21 Mar 2019 20:48:38
What about steve staunton did we not get him on a free eds?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - second time around.}

21 Mar 2019 22:14:35
Apparently he cost us £20k first time around. That's a lot for an Irish League player in 1986. I thought it'd have been 50p and a bag of footballs.

Top 3 liverpool free transfers

1. James Milner
2. Marcus Babbel
3. Gary Mac.

21 Mar 2019 13:20:20
Gary Mac number 1 milly number 2.

Agree4 5Disagree

21 Mar 2019 13:30:34
Milner. What a player he became here. I wasnt sure why we sign him with him wanting to be a CM when he clearly wasnt one. Not only that but on the wages he is. But. We all know it, the rest is history and let's all wish him to lift them both trophies by the start of June!

Agree6 4Disagree

21 Mar 2019 13:48:18
They good signing but when you say free we still have to pay signing on fees, very high wages because they are so called free.

Agree3 6Disagree

21 Mar 2019 13:50:26
No Joe Cole or Milan jonovich.

21 Mar 2019 15:13:28

21 Mar 2019 15:16:07
4. Fábio Aurélio?

Agree3 2Disagree

21 Mar 2019 16:23:18
20. Joel Matip.

Agree6 4Disagree

{Ed001's Note - is that above or below Cole and Jovanovic?}

21 Mar 2019 17:14:24
I know it wasn’t “free” but if we are talking value then the 2.6 million paid for Sami Hyypia is difficult to beat even to those free signings mentioned above (and I think Millie has been a hell of a signing) .

Agree2 1Disagree

21 Mar 2019 17:15:10
Gary mac is number 1 on the list for me.

Agree4 2Disagree

21 Mar 2019 17:25:19
Come on Ron I don’t get the hate, he’s played every game since January and we haven’t struggled have we? Gets bashed for no reason, before him it was Lallana who’s now praised on here.

Gary MC for me as he won trophys. very close call to Milner who for me is the model player.

You guys got me thinking back; whatever happened to Dani Pacheco?

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 20:00:02
Come on lerchy, it’s not hate it’s more a bit of banter.

He’s not impressed me apart from his first 8 or 9 games pre-injury.
You talk about how many games he’s played since Jan, we’ve let in double the number of goals in half the games 😄

I don’t hate him, I just think he’s a weak link and I don’t get the impression he’s really putting himself about.

Agree4 2Disagree

21 Mar 2019 21:35:05
Kolo Toure.

Agree4 1Disagree

21 Mar 2019 22:00:21
Why are players given extra status because they won trophies. It takes a team to win silverware, not an individual. Apparantly, Messi isn't the greatest unless he wins the World Cup, but look at the calibre of players he has compared to Pele in 1970.
Whos the better player out of Matt Le Tissier and Djimi Traore? One has won the highest club honours, the other won zip.
I don't see why Gary Mac would rate above Milner because ‘he won trophies’.

Agree4 1Disagree

22 Mar 2019 10:12:44
Not a lot between Gary mac and milner for me. I will never forget that free kick, near post from 40 yards. It was an important goal too.

Was Luis garcia a free?

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 10:23:25
Just seen a list that says we got ings on a free? That doesn't sound right to me.

Hypia for 2 mil was one of the best deals Liverpool have done in the modern era. Top 3 cbs ever for Liverpool for me.

Hansen
Hypia
Van dijke
Carra.
Hughes.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 10:47:35
Run of the milner, I always thought pacheco would be a star. He seemed to have everything except height. He was at Liverpool when we were full of world class strikers, Owen fowler, torres.

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Mar 2019 12:27:27
virgil - its not just the titles, but for me, when its close it becomes things like that that separate the comparison.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 08:17:48
Didn’t Gerrard supposedly say “Dont you dare shoot” to Gary mac just before he pinged that free kick in? 😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2019 11:54:48
I've seen both McAllister and Milner play, and it's Milner for me. The ultimate selfless team player, who'll do whatever is required of him week in and week out without raising an eyebrow. And I think Milner has had far more of an impact on this team than McAllister had on the team of that time.
