We have decided to change the Teams page to be the Liverpool Match Posts page, so look for posts talking about the latest Liverpool match there.

But most of the posts still go to the Liverpool Banter pages.

22 Jun 2018 11:56:29
In order to view all of today's banter, you have to visit our liverpool banter 2 to liverpool banter 10 pages linked at the bottom of this page.

Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Other Posts page.

If you haven't yet, I highly recommend the little article in the Echo about Sterling and how his daughter was singing the Mo Salah song after City won the league. Really funny.

Ed001 quick question not liverpool related. Have you seen any of Daniel arzani from the socceroos? And if so what do you think from the little you may have seen? He should have a decent future and is by far the best talent to come out of Australia since harry kewell. He plays for man city's Melbourne club.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - sorry no, not seen him play much.}

22 Jun 2018 11:27:12
He did well for us last night against Denmark, Mark. Hope he gets to start against Peru, mate!

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 11:27:29
I like the look of the guy leckie. He seemed really switched on yesterday. Lit up the team. Done some meters too.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 11:35:36
not seen much of him either but he does look a sharp lively player. if he plays for that Melbourne club then city will have first dibs on him won't they?

Seems to have a bit of aaron ramsey about him but plays on the wing too, could be worth a punt.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 11:39:45
Thanks for your reply. I'm positive you will see much more of him over the next few years. Australia is a bit of a sleeping giant in that football is still becoming more mainstream a bit like America.

Review Of The Day 22nd June 2018

{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Review Of The Day 22nd June 2018

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 06:44:39
No need for the correction Ed001, you got your description of Pepe right the first time round. I'm surprised Nagelsmann is leaving Hoffenheim for RB Leipzig. I thought he would wait it out at Hoffenheim for an even bigger opportunity, especially given the team he was building.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - they have a lot of money to build a team. Still seems a mistake to me.}

22 Jun 2018 07:40:27
Morning Ed, cheers mate! Have a great Friday.

{Ed001's Note - you too mate.}

22 Jun 2018 07:50:33
Cheers once again for the round up Ed001
I wonder what is must be like for Emre Can I have nothing bad to say against the lad, wish him well and hope more players who know they are leaving don't down tools and give up ala Coutinho but act like Can did.

Agree4 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - you can't fault him, but he hasn't half lucked in there! £14m!!!}

22 Jun 2018 08:11:26
Cheers for that ed, I have to disagree with you about the Neil Lennon thing though- I love Celtic and you are right about the abuse he took from them but the celebration was a little unbecoming for any manager let alone Lennon, primarily for his history with them. I do however think had he celebrated against any other team, it wouldn’t have been much of an issue. Some things aren’t black and white. On the other story about Burger King, wow, how did nobody stop that idea along the way.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate.}

22 Jun 2018 08:21:34
Thanks Ed nice daily report. Very harsh on Lennon that. Game was up and down, he lost the plot a little bit but understandable. Emre, I’m good at one off bycle kicks, has lucked out big time. I think Fab will be better for us going forward.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}

22 Jun 2018 08:29:19
But he did down tools 🤔 he was absolutely shocking last season. Players were ghosting past him and he'd just throw his arms in the air at others. Not to mention his mystery injury which miraculously healed in time for him to play in the Champions League final.

I had no problem with his attitude in all of his previous seasons, but last year he had one good game against Man City, and coasted for the rest of the year. One thing I absolutely can't stand in players; laziness. Can's as guilty as they come, but he got his Karma anyway. His lack of effort made him look so average that he was dropped from the Germany squad.

22 Jun 2018 08:34:33

Had a little chuckle at Burger King 😂.

22 Jun 2018 09:04:54
The Nagelsmann bit is a bit confusing imo. I was dead sure he would be Bayern boss in a few seasons. Guess that project's got to wait a while longer and Bayern will be counting on Kovac to keep them on top for the next 5 seasons at least if Nagelsmann is their ultimate aim (like Pep at City) .
Can has done really well for himself with the Juve deal. 14 million signing on fee and a guaranteed trophy at the end of the season. Can see why the lad wanted to leave.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 09:36:46
I don't see how Can downed tools at all mate
in some games he was our best Midfielder
About his injury I feel that is very unfair as more then once the lad has played through the pain barrier and not complained once while others split a fingernail and cry off sick
you can fault Can for maybe lack of top class ability and goals but imo never for downing tools.

Agree1 2Disagree

22 Jun 2018 10:01:41
No worries John, it's just my opinion mate. I just didn't see the Emre Can that worked his socks off and helped get us top 4 in the 16/ 17 season, last year. He played one really good game against Man City when we won 4-3. He worked so hard that game that he had to leave the pitch about 75 minutes in with us leading 4-1.

After that game I thought maybe he was going to pull his finger out. He just didn't though, for me. He was ball watching, flitting in and out of games, throwing his arms around, not getting stuck in etc. It was really winding me up watching him. The worst game was in the 3-3 against Arsenal where he just could not be bothered at all. Even in the Champions League final, everyone is moaning about Karius for Blake's second goal, but Can had only been on the pitch for a few minutes and was less than 10 yards away. So why didn't he make any effort to close down the shot when everyone on planet earth knew what Bale was going to do? He just couldn't be bothered to break into a light run or put his body on the line.

I lost all respect for him over the course of last season. I will never forgive somebody for not giving the Liverpool shirt 100% and Can simply didn't in my opinion. Aside from last year though, he was a good servant so I can see why some still want to wish him well. I can see exactly why Klopp wasn't desperate to keep him though. I'm not a nice person and I don't sugar coat my opinions so I fully appreciate I'll wind some people up when I say, good riddance 😂.

Morning all. i thought the French team might have got a mention - from the rough end of Ed001's tongue?
They almost look like the perfect modern team with power, pace, height and skill everywhere.
I am not sure if I have ever seen a larger collection of Big Time Charlie's in all my life though!?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I don't bother dealing with results in this as they are everywhere. The French are just badly managed.}

22 Jun 2018 10:13:18
Dont me get wrong im happy he is gone and tbh wished moreno would follow with Matip but I wish him well and boy did he fleece Juve 14m wow but good luck to the lad.

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Jun 2018 10:13:58
Couldn’t really blame the ref for asking for Ronaldo's World Cup shirt. He’s been the worlds best for a number of years, he’s on track for the golden boot and it wouldn’t surprise me if Portugal won the World Cup. Its the sort of thing people show the grandkids.
And £14 million quid for Can! That’s got to be some kind of record for a free agent.
As always, thanks for the review ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - cheers NYR. I would just like to mention I am also a free agent if anyone has £14m going spare.}

22 Jun 2018 11:48:52
Can started the season pretty well. scored early, a couple of beauties but he did seem to go missing eh, not sure if that was coz of the injury though.

I'll tell you, for 220.000 per week, if he doesn't hit the ground running the juve fans will get restless pretty quick. if he starts putting in lazy performances, it won't be tolerated. he has obviously grabbed the 220.000 pretty quick but it could be his undoing. I doubt it, he will probably do really well in seria a.

All in all he has been a fairly decent player for us for a number of years. he has certainly done more than score 1 over head kick and for that I will wish him good luck.


I still don't understand why we didn't sell him last summer though.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 02:12:27
Away from the usual transfer speculation, I'd like to wish Emre Can all the best in Juventus. He may be slow and and limited at times but he always gave it his all. Never moaned despite being played all over the pitch. Especially under Rodgers.

He was instrumental alongside Henderson in our ill-fated run-in to Basel and even played through injury in the last few weeks of the 16-17 season, helping us secure Champions League football once again.

Agree13 1Disagree

22 Jun 2018 05:37:15
I certainly always liked Emre, and that goal against Watford, WOOF!
But a £14 million signing on fee, plus wages of £220,000 per week?
I really don't think he'll be missed that much and it makes me happy to say that. I'm sure he'll do very well in Italy, all the best to him. Now, moving on.

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 06:41:20
Agree JM, that's crazy money. I thought he was leaving as he thought he wouldn't be a regular starter, but it seems the money was a big factor. Good luck to him, as I don't think he will be missed.

Congratulations to our cheery Croat chappy Dejan on a second successive clean sheet at the world cup, Croatia are the dark horses (not too dark mind you as they play in a lovely bright red and white as I'm sure you're all aware) for me and look forward to seeing how they do in the latter stages of this topsy turvy World Cup.

It really has been a spectacle hasn't it? . That's this speedsters take on the proceedings thus far anywho.

The charity match completely slipped my mind, was supposed to be playing the centre back role for one of the sides, though I suspect I would have been more of a pathetic Skrtel type than a commander in chief such as Dejan or Virgil. However I would still very much like to make a donation if that is still a possibility? £20 is my unit of preference but I can be easily swayed.

P. S. Ron Keague you cheeky little devil.

Hi all
Was a fair bit of chatter about about him a couple of weeks ago but rumours again about possible interest in Gelson Martins (along with a few other English clubs) .

I don't know very much about him. is the interest real and how do people rate him?

Alright lads, back in liverpool visiting me ma. And was wondering if there's any packages or apps to get all the footy for the new season for my uncle.

They already have the sports package from sky but it doesn't show every game (bt) .

Back in the states i have an app (fubo tv) that i pay $40 a month and can watch any game from every league. I don't think it will work over here, so im wondering if england has something similar.

Cant be arsed setting up a streaming thing like footlocker, as its not always reliable.

Anyways any help is appreciated.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jun 2018 21:34:32
If your uncle is outside of a sky lock in period, then look to switch fibre to BT. Same lines and similar service, BT has been a bit stronger signal for me, but Bt often run free Bt sport on sky offers. I got mine last November and paid the same (actually a couple of quid less) for Bt fibre over sky fibre AND got BT sport on my sky box for free for 18 months. The deal was an 18 month tie in, so come the end of the period, I’ll hunt around for a similar deal again.

Basically saved me the £20 (? ) a month for BT sports on sky.

21 Jun 2018 21:36:25
Stream commando is very good and reliable. I won’t pay for sky sports so I watch every game on that now.

Otamendi back in form kicking kacatic while he was on the ground. Typical.
I feel sorry for messi. Argentina just never seem to click.

{Ed001's Note - isn't that partly down to Messi disappearing up his own arse every time a tournament comes around?}

21 Jun 2018 20:55:17
Lol Ed001. Think he is competing with Ronaldo on how far they can get up their own arses. Ronaldo still winning the golden cock trophy for me.

Agree3 4Disagree

{Ed001's Note - but he turns up when it matters and drags his team through. Messi just complains and whines.}

21 Jun 2018 21:20:25
Messi just doesn't look interested, and for me, doesn't deserve to start. Think Huguain with Dybala and Aguero supporting, would suit them better as a team. Although this Argentina side has got to be the worst I've seen since I watched my first world cup in 1978.

Agree2 2Disagree

21 Jun 2018 21:23:27
After say Ed01.Rakatic looks a great player. Watched him a few time but thought he has been great in last two games.

Do you think he still has what it takes?

Thanks.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I don't know, he looked finished earlier in the season, but seems to have returned to form lately. It might be the slower pace of games is suiting him, because his legs were looking like they were on the way out.}

Maradona single handily drive Argentina to world cup, Messi is always a no show.

Just amazed with that performance. Have never seen Argentina play so badly. Sampaoli has not prepared his team well at all and deserves part of the blame.

Argentina is blessed with lots of talented forwards, but that's a extremely weak midfield.

Jonpow- Rakatic has had a good season after looking like his career was on the wane, pretty much coincided with us being linked.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jun 2018 22:43:06
Looks like Sampaoli needs Juanma Lillo to succeed.
Just my opinion, but having a playmaker like Banega might have actually freed up Messi in the final 3rd.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jun 2018 23:29:57
Argentina being this poor shouldn't be a surprise. Got through South American qualifying by the skin of their teeth. Interestingly, this feels like a world cup with little to choose between teams. We could see a surprise winner this time.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Jun 2018 23:31:55
Redphil you are right what u are saying lad, messi is nothing to maradonna twice he single handly took argentina to world cup success with a worse team they have now. Messi is no comparison to diego, not in the same league, one was arguably the best player there has ever been the other just thinks he is the best player ever.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jun 2018 23:33:10
As much as I can’t stand Ronaldo I’ve got to admit his will to win and fighting spirit is far greater than Messi’s on the international stage. I still think Messi’s the better player but he’s been extremely disappointing so far.

Agree1 1Disagree

22 Jun 2018 00:19:24
Was involved in the Rakitic debate last transfer window when everyone slated first team barcelona midfielder, player adored by every coach and player he played with, player that was sevilla captain and player that won trophies all of our first team players can dream off. Rakitic is class and something closest to Xabi Alonso. He can walk and will be useful on the pitch and you can say his legs are gone but he is always im top 3 runners in his team. He is so smart in reading, has excelent passing and dead ball. He would be a welcoming addition to any club in the world I just don't see how the ed01 who has so much knowledge about the game doesn't see it lol.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 00:36:14
Croatia is a team full of players at big clubs none of whom get pampered or overhyped. Mandukzic Lovren Modric and Kovacic all playing in the semi-finals of the champions league all of them doing their job with pride for their national team. Messi on the other hand was sulking like a spoilt brat. Give me 11 team mates over 1 over indulgded super star any day.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Jun 2018 21:43:37
True ed. But I think he should play on a wing to open up space for the rest of his team. As he always has 3 opposition players around him. I just feel sorry for him because of the pressure he would be under from the Argentine public. And I know all players from every country have pressure on them but messi is clearly an introvert unlike Ronaldo who loves any kind attention. I can relate.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he plays where he wants to play. If Messi is such an introvert he would not do half the personal appearance stuff he chooses to do or the ads etc.}

22 Jun 2018 01:38:50
Maradona is EASILY the best there has ever been.

Not only did he drag Argentina to 2 World Cup finals (one win), but he also dragged Napoli through an entire season and won their first Scudettos ever.

He’s a genius. He did it when defenders could tackle, you played with a ball (not a balloon) and you played on earth and grass, not these grass effect carpets they have now.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 05:14:16
Modric looking best midfielder of the tournament so far, Croatia could be very dangerous. Very open WC so far, wouldn’t discount England going far if the forwards can click.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 05:25:05
Didnt Pele do the same thing ron.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - hardly the same. Brazil were always the best team with wonderful players around him for Pele to work with. Argentina were awful but had Maradona.}

22 Jun 2018 08:05:46
Didn’t realize the disliking u had for Messi ed01. Have to say I think your being a bit harsh on this occasion. That Argentina team is Awful, from back to midfield there is no service and all the do is give the ball to Messi when he isn’t even in positions to recieve it, then expect (along with the nation) for him to come up with some miraculous. That’s not easy when you have 3 or 4 players running to close you down every time and everyone is focused on stopping you cos they know the other 80 % of the team is useless!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I don't dislike him, I don't care about him one way or the other. Messi was not even trying, that is down to him and making excuses for him being a spoilt brat is not helping anyone.}

22 Jun 2018 08:13:41
Fair enough, we will have to agree to disagree on that one mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jun 2018 08:40:46
Messi thinks the world revolves around him and that's a reason why I'm not keen on the man. He kind of reminds me of a teenage girl at times, if he doesn't get it his way he spits his dummy out.
