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.

21 Jun 2018 09:17:10
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.

21 Jun 2018 09:17:10
With our site (no Ed002). More posts will be going up on that Liverpool FC Banter site from now on.

The s*n reporting we are interested in Grealish - any truth in these rumours - watched him a couple of times seems decent but heard he has attitude problems.

Agree0 2Disagree

{Ed001's Note - why are you even asking about something reported in that crap rag? Please do not mention it here again. Thank you.}

21 Jun 2018 09:00:08
Surprised you even let it through Ed.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - how would he know if he isn't told? He might not know what happened, he might be young or foreign etc.}

My thoughts exactly ed001.

Thought you guys and girls might find this amusing. An ex pro called Ken Goodeve plays at my local golf club. a friend of mine told me a story about him the other day. kens son was in London a few years back and saw George best in a bar. he went over to him and said "George can I buy you a drink? "to which George obviously replied "of course".
Before the barman could come over the lad said"George do you remember a player at United called Ken Goodeve? "
George replied"yes I remember him, shittest footballer I played with, absolutely useless, how he was a pro I do not know, why you even asking about him? "
Lad says" he's my dad"
George says"ok am I still getting my drink? ".

How’s Bogdan doing? Does his contract run out on June 31st?

I thought it was 2019 when his contract ran out mate? I may be wrong mind.

Feels like its a never ending contract. He has been at us since about 1997.

I wish my contract ran out on June 31st.

Contract for life! 😉😂😂.

I see from the papers today we're linked with Grealish. Surely just lazy journalism?

Well, if you read it in a newspaper.
Remember newspapers are bog roll with print on them.

It's probably the player's agent or the selling club putting it out there to increase his price/ get bidders, rather than the reporter or the newspaper making up stories.

Nothing to see here, move along.

Way too lazy for klopp.

Thanks Ed. Fancy Burnley to beat the Deen. Have a good one.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it would be a shock if they didn't beat them.}

21 Jun 2018 07:37:57
Cheers Ed!

Good on Brian Lenihan for actually speaking out, it takes a hell of a lot to do but the lad seems to be in a good place now which is great. I actually met him once (through work), though I had no idea who he was until I was told later on lol. Let's hope he can continue on the right path.

Have a great day Ed mate/ all.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I think he deserves a lot of credit for admitting to his problems. He could have just got drunk like most do. Instead he got help and now he is speaking out to help others. If only more people had his sense the world would be a lot better.}

21 Jun 2018 07:39:56
Cheers for that ed.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

21 Jun 2018 07:59:02
He certainly does deserve credit Ed. I'm just happy more people seem to be speaking out, two in a month now (football) that I know of anyway, I hope it encourages others to do so as well. There's no shame in mental health, fingers crossed more people follow suit and get the help they need.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - let's hope more do. Too long have men suffered in silence because we are always told to just man up and get on with it. The worst thing you can do is bottle stuff up.}

21 Jun 2018 08:23:38
Unfortunately you're right mate. I speak from personal experience, that happened to me on a down time, I was told to snap out of it etc and he made out as if it was my fault! which doesn't go down well with me still to this day. It's too easy for people to speak about it if they've never been through it themselves, it's easy for them to say snap out of it etc, like it's that easy? if it was that easy I'm sure people would opt to not have a mental illness! Unfortunately we don't have that choice, it's deep, it's something more people should be more aware about. There's reasons why the male suicide rate is through the roof, it needs more support. Thankfully we have good men like Lenihan speaking out, if it helps even one person then it's a good job done and I'm sure it will.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I really hope so.}

20 Jun 2018 22:57:40
I know ed02 loves a random name so here goes, if we were considering shakiri as cover for the front three would Bernard not make more sense as his contact has just expired? Providing of course that he would be willing to play a squad role.

Agree2 2Disagree

20 Jun 2018 23:27:04
Didn’t we watch him a long time ago or am I wrong? I’m probably wrong. I know a few years ago he was rated highly but I thought spurs had a look. I’m probably wrong about that too.

Agree1 0Disagree

What punishment did he receive for being a downright thug and beating up a woman?

Agree0 1Disagree

21 Jun 2018 08:37:13
Exactly Mcgoveb, when the news first came out I thought he'd of been kicked out of the club immediately, why he wasn't is beyond me. He should never play a professional game of football again, people like him are just utter scum. Pathetic bully, he doesn't deserve a career in football.

Agree2 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I am surprised at you Salah, he was suffering with depression and drinking to drown it. The lad was a disgrace, but he needs help. If people like him got help they might not end up abusing others.}

21 Jun 2018 08:55:06
To be honest Ed, I had absolutely no idea about that mate. Now I feel bad for saying the above! I mean it still doesn't make it right what he did no matter what but when it comes down to him having depression it's a different matter because if he'd of received the right help maybe that wouldn't of happened. Thanks for telling me mate.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it is incredibly common amongst injured footballers mate. They are not well looked after.}

21 Jun 2018 09:00:27
Easiest thing to do is not get involved in these discussions lads. Leave it to the club and the courts, because you just end up with egg on your face when you don't know the full facts!

Does anybody else get the impression that when Roy Keane is not in the studio being a pundit, he just sits in his hotel room on his own in a chair, curtains drawn in the dark just starring at a wall?

Been wondering this for a while but not sure how many honest answers I would actually get, I was wondering how many contributers to this site actually have 'connections' at Liverpool FC or perhaps just footballing connections in general?

You get the odd poster on here who is clearly bullshiting but I wonder if any of the regulars are 'ITK'.

Funnily enough I have recently gained a few connections in the world of football but not really anything to brag about and certainly not related to Liverpool.

Hope to find out that MKS is actually Joe Cole's cousin!

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jun 2018 19:52:59
I played football for a team now in the conference through my teens. They were semi professional back then, so no professional contract was offered and I decided a different career path, now a pharmacist. If only I’d stayed, they are now well backed by Dr Abdulla Al-Humaidi and are rolling in cash. A few teammates now play in league football. I still talk to them, and I know a few coaches and one ex-England international (called up, never capped) . Don’t get any information as you’d expect.

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Jun 2018 19:59:02
Being a former pro myself I keep in contact with absolutely no one. On a serious note edd 1 and 2 have contacts and I believe tomato squares is the brother of Joe gomez. Apologies if incorrect but I think I am correct.

Agree1 4Disagree

20 Jun 2018 20:02:41
Couple of players from my boys team went on to play professionally, not in the prem though and I don't see em much these days.

I think mks just knows his football, he's a shrewd tactician and would probably be brilliant as liverpool manager!

Ed01, ed02 and macca definitely have some inside info and carragold knows his stuff.

I think I've spoken for everybody, I'm off to meet Angela murcall.

Agree2 7Disagree

20 Jun 2018 20:04:07
You say the odd poster is bullshitting?
I'd say the odd poster is genuine. Most indulge in speculation, and over a transfer window there's a good few who clearly just invent stuff. Then that causes aggro for the poor Eds who do a damned fine job and can do without it.

20 Jun 2018 20:34:15
Childhood friend who I used to play football with and lived on the same street as me went on to play in the Premier League and have a decent international career, although he was a few years older than me and has recently retired but now does a fair bit of punditry on tv.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2018 20:34:17
I have no inside info whatsoever and I doubt many on here do. I’m not even on here to find out about possible transfers I just like chatting footy and sharing opinions.

20 Jun 2018 20:40:36
I’ve never pretended to be ITK, because I’m not ITK, never have been or ever will be ITK, just love this site, that’s all folks.

20 Jun 2018 20:49:26
Oh, may I add I have no inside knowledge and wouldn't want it any other way. Love it when Ed2 confirms our interest in a player or Macca appears out of nowhere.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Jun 2018 21:00:54
I have no inside information at all, even though I am related to Zidane. He doesn't speak to anyone in the family since we all got Materazzi tattooed on our bums for banter. He didn't take it well at all.

A friends husband works for the club very high up (don’t get any decent exclusive info from them so don’t ask)
Another friend used to go out with a famous ex player, also still knows several other ex players very well.
I get to meet current and ex players and managers through my job, Sterling, Reina. Macmanaman, rush and dalglish being memerable.
Get to meet current and ex players and managers for other clubs as well, again through Work, Ronaldinho, Messi, Ronaldo, Cannavaro, Rooney and fat sam being the biggest names.
Got to meet Abi Clancy once as well 😍
Showing off now 😁.

I have no connections whatsoever to Liverpool sadly. I used to watch a lot of Irish premier league matches with the old chairman of bray wanderers before it all went terribly wrong with the club.

I played in the youth Bundesliga and for a Bundesliga reserve team but no connections Liverpool related.

Im normally just posting stuff when it’s Bundesliga related as i just know where to look for reliable infos and British media get stuff wrong when it comes do Bundesliga players most of the time. :D.

Bit of both, connections and ex-players who are on friendly terms. Not in the know though, most of them speculate as much as people on here 🤝.

I used to play semi pro football for Scarborough and have two friends that work at hull city, one as a coach and one as a physio.
I’m itk on a few hull transfers but that’s as far as it goes.
As for Liverpool I just use Macca and the Ed’s.

My contacts are sadly now passed away. My grandfather was best friends with Sir Alf Ramsey. I remember once asking him to manage my five a side team but he politely turned me down.

My grandfather used to get free tickets for every Wembley game including our European Cup win in 1978!

20 Jun 2018 23:49:42
No connections at the club. Know a couple coaches/ ex players around semi pro and soccer schools, mainly goalkeeping coaches, (who seem to all know each other around the game) . Get very few bits worth repeating from them, from what I've heard Pope is reasonably well thought of, Kasper Schmeichel thinks he's better than his old man (apparently everyone laughs at that one) . Also get a few bits from ITK people at a lower level south London club but zero use to LFC supporters.

Don Mcalistair who played for Spurs, moved into a resort complex in Queensland and used to be good for a chat, mostly about the good old days when he played alongside Hoddle, Villa and Ardiles. He was still in touch with Ardiles. I went to school with a lad called Rhys Wilmot, very good rugby player but wisely chose soccer and kept goal for Arsenal, mainly as backup but good stopper. Think he ended up in plymouth but no longer in touch so no info there-bugger.

There is a lot of the people who post rumours that are ITK. they all have the same contact too, the fat kid from Bolton 😂.

No connections but a do have a good friend that went to high school with and still friends with a former Leicster City player (he was part of their title winning squad) . Said player is actually from your town MKS.

Interesting article on the club website regarding the re development of the Annie Road End.

One of the points raised was that the club needs to eat into the season ticket waiting list, with less emphasis on coperate.

Whilst seats in bums ( new season tickets ) does not bring in the revenue coperate does, for me this makes total sense.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Jun 2018 19:02:30
Without having any idea about the finances of football, maybe they decided that a better atmosphere to carry the team to potential trophies may be worth more than the corporate seats generate. Doubtful though!

Agree5 0Disagree

20 Jun 2018 19:57:37
Sorry but seats in bums makes no sense. Sounds pretty painful actually.
