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.

23 Sep 2018 01:18:47
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 and the More Liverpool Posts pages.

So we went to dinner tonight with a few friends, one of which is an Arsenal fan and even he was saying if Liverpool are going to win that league, it's with this team! we're even making none Liverpool fans believe now!

Great result, it's always a pleasure to be a Liverpool fan no matter what but my word things are exciting right now aren't they? I always try to be positive because I believe we're the best team in the league but I'm not daft, at the beginning of the season I'd never of imagined us to win the first 6 league games.

It just makes your weekend doesn't it when we win. Bring on Chelsea midweek, it'll be an interesting game but I reckon there will be quite a lot of changes so we can do them over next Saturday! every game is important but let's not kid ourselves, the league game is miles more important and I believe we'll get them dealt with.

Hope everybody has had a good day and has a great evening :) .

A even better story Salah I was working today with a manc and a bitter one at that well he certainly was at 5 o clock but even he said it's between us and City. Have a good one Salah👍.

22 Sep 2018 21:48:51
It's good and refreshing to see us win all our games, but only one team winning the league and that's man city.

Agree1 3Disagree

22 Sep 2018 21:51:30
Been so impressed with how we are dealing with games and seeing them out. We finally seem to be beating the so called weaker teams too which is a massive improvement.

I’m of the opinion that the midweek game is a hugely important game, a win would be a huge psychological boost for the weekend and keep the 100% record. However if we could only win one it would be the one next weekend.

Hope your well on the mend Salah!

Hiya Ed001 and Red's, I just want to say how very, very proud I am of the team but also how they are far far better at seeing our game's much more professionally than previous seasons. Klopp really has got the measure of the PL and possibility is use of subs is getting better. Onwards and upwards Red's👍.

Agree4 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very professional I thought, an incredibly dominant performance. The Saints fans are saying on our Southampton site that the positive from today was getting to watch us play!}

22 Sep 2018 21:06:30
Wow ed01, that is very complimentary. Fair play to the saints.

I think it's clear the league is going to come down to the games with Chelsea and City and the other big boys. Doing spurs away has given me the belief that we are going to lift the league.

We need to keep big virgil fit though.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I hope you are right.}

22 Sep 2018 21:16:07
Big respect to the Southampton fan's in that case Ed mate.

{Ed001's Note - I feel sorry for them being lumbered with Hughes.}

22 Sep 2018 21:39:23
Totally agree Ed001 he's a dinosaur mate.

{Ed001's Note - very much so.}

22 Sep 2018 23:30:02
I think that it's rather refreshing to see the team being mentioned as a whole as opposed to us focusing on one man and although it's obvious that Salah is well out of form his stats so far this season pretty much mirror last season so I don't think we should worry just yet. Lastly, it's worth mentioning that it's refreshing to see disagreements being dealt with by debate as it should be. This is the whole point of this site, hopefully some of the vegetables see how this is done and we can encourage it more. To start one here, VVD and Gomez are the best defensive pairing we have had since Sami and Carra. Thoughts?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 19:31:56
Ed 001
Sorry we fell out the other day, bit of antagonism both ways I felt but f**k it we move on.
Salah was a little better today. Do you agree? He moved and interchanged a little better and scored to boot, thought Matip was ok even though I flapped when I heard he was starting.
Do you think Klopp will go full changes midweek?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no, I think the difference is the team performed better around him, so they were not able to double and triple up on him and the space was there for him to exploit, instead of his presence creating space for others. Oh and the ball actually going in the back of the net for him (eventually) helped a lot!

I expect Klopp will make a number of changes. Not too many to disrupt things but just rest VVD, so his rib injury can heal and probably let a couple of the front 3 have a rest.}

22 Sep 2018 21:51:04
Agreed brother, glad we are both in a better mood, and to be fair, you are my favourite, so no more bickering, your opinion is spot on and you are a fellow Red through and through.
Salah will come good any time now as I said before and he is definitely providing more space/ opportunity for others.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - there will always be times we bicker. It is a part of life, we all bicker with others at times. It is just about realising nothing was meant by it and afterwards carrying on as normal. I certainly don't hold it against you mate.}

22 Sep 2018 14:13:34
Shaqiri starts. Milner drops to the bench. It'll be interesting to see Shaq play a full game.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 14:19:06
Attacking enough lineup for everyone?

22 Sep 2018 15:28:40
Very attacking, not even playing well and 2 up. Happy days.

22 Sep 2018 15:55:10
Fair play to klopp starting Shaqiri in midfield. I didn’t see it coming but it made real sense knowing that Southampton would try to hold back and stifle us. that’s why he’s managing us tho and I’m not lol. Shaqiri playing well in that position 👍👍👍.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 16:04:27
Shaq subbed at HT. Strange, thought he did well and he hardly needs a rest.

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 16:11:05
Agreed. Why take him off at half time? He set up two goals and did nothing wrong!

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 16:59:32
Perhaps he plans on playing him on Wednesday.

Agree8 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 17:35:53
Plenty of our team have played 2 games in a row and more, surely blood the players in now for the long season ahead, strange one to me.

Agree1 1Disagree

22 Sep 2018 17:40:15
Definitely he was thinking of Wednesday with fabinho and Keita will probably start.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 17:49:43
Wasn't medical asvice? I've read somewhere it was slight injury.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed0333's Note - Not according to Klopp post match interview.

22 Sep 2018 17:50:48
One would assume he's planning to rest the regular front three in midweek and will probably rely on Shaq for creativity in that game.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 18:13:06
Also, klopp took him off while he was playing well. Gave shaq a sniff and has left him wanting more. Left the fans wanting more. The substitution didn't result on us losing our foothold in the game. Maybe klopp thinks shaq needs to up his fitness a bit too.

We won, more of our new players involved. It's all good.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 18:47:10
I think we'll definitely see him on Wednesday. What a peach of a free kick that was that lead to Salah's goal. Absolute magic strike.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 20:04:39
Shaqiri coming off was definitely tactical, Southampton were getting so much room down our left hand side first half and some of their delivery into the box was very good. The game was over by half time and the only way Southampton were getting back into it was if we did something silly. Milner is far better defensively than Shaqiri.

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 14:09:06
Just seen the line-up no Gomez is he injured and matip is his replacement God help us. Hopefully it's nothing too serious.

Agree4 10Disagree

22 Sep 2018 14:33:58
He's on the bench, can't be that serious if he is injured.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 14:34:54
He's on the bench isn't he? Just taking care with him I would imagine.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 18:14:14
I think it's possible for matip to get better. Klopp has improved so many players so why not Joel. Kept a clean sheet so he can't have done that bad.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 23:49:25
I thought Matip has a decent game today. Pretty much faultless apart from the incident where Van Dijk had to run in and block the shot that was on Matip's side. I do like how he comes out with the ball from the back too. It's is clear why he's also been played in the DM role before.

If your on iphone, you can download live sport tv from the App Store. Doesn’t also comment in English and sometimes the stream can lag or buff for abit but generally it is really good. Being using it all this season. Yes it’s only on the phone but better than not watching it.

Morning Ed!

Wow Matic, what a man, I love hearing stuff like that.

Have a good day Ed mate, I'm sure you will when you see us rip Southampton a new one ;) .

Agree4 2Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very true mate, fingers crossed.}

22 Sep 2018 08:06:50
Nice touch from Matic that, it's good that some players so feel a sense of responsibility and generosity towards those who are in less fortunate positions - only wish more players were of this mindset.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it is good. You would think all of them would see the benefit in it.}

22 Sep 2018 08:19:58
Morning Redmen.
Nice touch by Matic. It’s good that you seek out and let us know of some of the positive things footballers do Ed. Good one.
Steven Gerrard - Un Caballero?
Another day, another massed defence?

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I do keep a look out for those kind of stories, I think it is nice to know who are the decent blokes in the game. It is good to remember that when you see someone like Cristiano Ronaldo strutting about the pitch, there is a lot more to him than that. Such as not getting tattoos as it would mean he could no longer give blood or the huge sums he gives away to charities on a regular basis. It is easy to forget that he is not just a preening peacock otherwise, but a good guy underneath it who hides beneath the arrogance.}

22 Sep 2018 08:30:36
6 minutes to success LOL. Ed001 you can try your hand in editorial section in newspaper. But I really wished Brazil drops Firmino from their squad. Our first 11 needs some rest after this hectic schedule almost every match is against big opponents.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - apparently that is all it takes these days. Funny how Tite mentioned he had a great season last time out, which is why, he claimed, he was picked, yet he couldn't get near the Brazil squad last season while at Bordeaux. Now he has moved to Barca and only played 6 minutes, that season at Bordeaux is enough to get him into the team. Nike really need to stop picking the team.

Do newspapers still do stuff like that?}

22 Sep 2018 08:55:51
Why would having tattoos mean you can’t give blood?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - because there is an increased risk of infections, so you have to wait 6 months after having a tattoo before you can give blood.}

22 Sep 2018 09:40:51
I was once wondering why he hasn't got any tattoo, coz most footballers got lots of those 'sleeves'. Now I know why. Thank you so much Ed01.

Wow, Matic. And he even did it anonymously. Wow.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - personally the risk of infection etc is why I think footballers should leave their tattoos until the summer. It is like riding motorcycles, going skiing etc, they are not allowed to do those under the terms of their contract because of the risk, so why allow them to do something that does, ever so slightly, weaken the body midseason? Plus I would like to see it being enforced in their contract that they all have to give blood on a regular basis, and every single one of them should have a small sample of that blood tested for peds etc. No point in random testing, it catches very few and only those stupid enough to be irrelevant. Make it regular and it will be a deterrent. I would rather deter people from going down that route than catch them after they are already halfway down the road.}

At least Indian media likes these types of quotes.

{Ed001's Note - ah ok.}

22 Sep 2018 11:02:24
Great from Matic top top man
I rememeber a few footballers doing some great things like Andy Cole in 2000 setting up a Childrens foundation in Zimbabwe and Kanu opened the foundation in Nigeria for kids with Heart issues, I Also remember Steve Waugh doing a lot of charity stuff and donating cash to various places in Asia during and after his cricket career ended.
Such great men and giving back just a little of what they earned is superb.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 11:08:17
Morning Ed, it strikes me that winding down as a back up at Chelsea would be perfect for a 32 year old Cahill, but instead he wants to go and try his luck at another club. I fully understand he wants to make the most of a short career, but that seems a bit silly to me. It does seem to be the thing to do as soon as an early thirties player falls out of favour at a massive club - like they feel they deserve to be the main man somewhere because of where they’ve been playing. It very rarely works as far as I can remember and in Cahill’s case he’s simply not good enough to hold a regular place in a successful Premier League defence, in my opinion. Did players always do this or did they just take a step back with grace, until their contract runs out? I’m thinking successful players at successful clubs, not journeyman types who follow the pay check.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - players always used to have to step down to lower leagues as they needed the money in the past. I disagree with you completely, why would you want to sit watching a sport you love playing when you could go elsewhere and play it? Sitting on the bench is something no player should be happy with. Any player happy to sit on the bench and watch has a poor attitude imo.}

22 Sep 2018 11:39:06
I agree for a player in their 20’s who is in or is approaching his prime, it’s players like Cahill who would be very quickly in the same situation that i’m talking about. Unless he moves down a league or two, then I can’t see the point. That’s all I mean. The Milner type 32+ is a rare beast indeed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There are going to be options for Gary Cahill in the Premier League, in the Championship and in mainland Europe; and indeed beyond. He turned down a move in the summer but Chelsea will not stand in his way or create a financial issue if a new home that he is satisfied with can be found in January.}

22 Sep 2018 12:36:29
Thanks again Ed. Have a great day.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - you too mate.}

22 Sep 2018 14:29:29
Well good on them and good luck to all involved then.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 21:07:43
I was actually thinking of asking you about this anyway before you mentioned it ED but why is it that Cristiano Ronaldo gets such a bed press? I know he has that arrogance/ confidence in him but I imagine this is what makes him the player that he is. As a person he sounds like a genuinely top bloke - the amount of stuff he does in terms of charity and general decency, and the amount of time he gives to fans/ others marks him out as one of the best players off the pitch too. I just never understood the hatred he generates.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - because he doesn't care about PR the way Messi does. So he became the bad guy to Messi's good guy.}

22 Sep 2018 23:51:47
Sorry just read up on the tattoo thing, I just ignorantly assumed that since all blood is screened in this day and age that it wouldn’t be an issue. I guess there are infections that can be missed in the screening process when they are in the early stages.

Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster from Singapore :) Huge huge fan of the site - I only have time to visit it only 5-8 times a day though :) great work to all the Eds!

If you don't mind me asking, I'm thinking of inviting a Liverpool legend to my home in Singapore for a private dinner with some of my clients and close friends. Who would you choose? Criteria must be that 1) he's must have great love for Liverpool even today 2) he can speak in an English accent that we can catch quickly 3) not someone divisive among fans 4) has great knowledge of the club for a long Q&A session!

Humbly awaiting your input please :)

YNWA,

Dominic.

{Ed001's Note - cheers for the compliment. Steve Heighway or Brian Hall would be my suggestion as they are intelligent. Most footballers are not going to give you an intelligent or easily understood conversation.}

I'd love to invite Robbie fowler and Gary neville. We could spike Gary with lsd and ketimin and get him to admit he has sexual dreams about Peter shmicheal.

Then we could put Gary on a leash and walk him round the garden and feed him a tin of pedigree chum.

That's what I love about football. The mutual respect and friendly rivalry.

Morning Dominic,

I’ve sat and eaten with a number of players on a couple of occasions. There are some to which I maybe wouldn’t go for, Phil Neal for instance always wants to talk about himself.

The most articulate in his speech would have to be John Barnes and he’s a really nice fella. Also Ian Rush and Jimmy Case I found to be really interesting to talk to. I sat next to Jamie Carragher at LFC’s end of season’s awards and he was also very happy to engage in conversation etc, though not sure how many would understand his speech lol.

I would contact the club as they have evenings, held at the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool where by you can sit and have dinner with ex players as part of a match day package. Stay away from Phil Neal though!

Hope this helps
Cheers
Drogie.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2018 07:02:06
Agree with mr Istanbul, its has to be Owen. He is totally non divisive and wants to unite both Liverpool and Man U fans. Great English and great knowledge of club ambassador.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he is also boring, up his own arse and is very divisive as most LFC fans hate him for signing for United.}

22 Sep 2018 07:02:17
I think super sub David fairclough does the evenings ( really nice fella! ) and also Alan Kennedy, if you want to add some humour to the night, he’d be the one, also a good bloke to speak with!

Hi Eds,

Long time lurker, fist time poster.

I've just read reports about Klopp declining an amazon documentary. Personally I think it was a good move to turn it down but I'm sure you could offer some better insights into whether a documentary would be a positive or negative thing for the club? I certainly could see a documentary improving exposure and marketing opportunities, but I also see why Klopp would feel it could be a disturbance.

Would love to hear one of the Eds thoughts on activities like these.

Also thanks for all the top quality insights I get to read everyday :)

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - All access fly-on-the-wall documentaries have been made about many sporting clubs including (off the top of my head) the New Orleans Saints, Manchester City, Sunderland, French World Cup squad, Seattle Mariners, Liverpool, Gillingham and I am sure many others. Typically they have no real impact and certainly there would be no new marketing opportunities arising as they are simply snapshots in time. People quickly forget - as an example. I have not seen any comments on this site about the Liverpool documentary since it aired.}

21 Sep 2018 15:51:14
Glad Klopp rejected it. The Man City one is absolutely cringeworthy. I remember Rodgers agreed to one as well and it was utterly embarrassing.
