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.

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.

Hi Ed002

Would you like to guess on the next clubs to get formally investigated over FFP related breaches?

Thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There will be no more before the accounts are due for FFP at the end of June. The clubs they need more information from right now have already been notified and in discussions.}

18 Mar 2019 22:48:50
Thanks Ed002

Whats the difference to the accounts due for FFP and the accounts submitted to the relevant body (for example Companies House in the United Kingdom)?

Thanks

FR.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The FFP accounts only deal with matters related to FFP and deductions relevant to FFP, so they are like a subset.}

Hi Ed's,

In your opinion, will the transfer ban that Chelsea has received and the possible ban that Manchester City could be under, have an effect on our tansfer plans?

Will the club for example bring forward any long term targets because of the reduced short term competition? I would appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No it won’t.}

18 Mar 2019 19:04:31
OP, what other clubs do or don't do, have NO bearing on what LFC do or don't do. Pretty simple, really.

Agree4 7Disagree

18 Mar 2019 20:19:55
Thanks Ed002,

RedWolf, would it be as simple as you say? I think it’s fair to say that we are after an attacking midfielder to compete with AOC and to cover the loss of Lallana if he, as expected, moves on. We tried to sign Fekir last summer. If Real Madrid sign Hazard, does that mean that Isco could be come available? We are all in the same market, I accept what Ed002 has said in regard to transfer strategy if our PL competition gets a ban but what you have said is different and what other clubs do does have an effect. If Roma didn’t have a replacement for Allison or they haven’t allocated the funds we don’t get him for example.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You are over analysing this, it is nothing to do with Liverpool - at least for the time being.}

18 Mar 2019 20:41:58
Kev, Ed02 just answered your post perfectly. It is actually that simple. You are working too hard trying to make 2 and 2 equal 5. Transfers and transfer strategies are indeed complicated BUT not as complicated as you are making it out to be. Cheers, mate.

Agree2 5Disagree

18 Mar 2019 21:24:00
we will have our targets, the only thing I can think of that would make any difference is that banned clubs won’t be able to sign them if they are after the same player. That all depends on if we don’t also pick up a ban lol.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 22:09:22
Or, another factor might be if LFC get dragged into all this and themselves get a ban. Quite sure that bring forward any plans.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have explaioned that situational already - numerous English sides can become involved in at least the nise.}

18 Mar 2019 23:23:17
ed02 said 'not for the time being" based on previous sharkpods etc I'd say that our targets are not the same as other clubs. but that could change. Redwolf - the connection he/ she is making isn't that crazy and is a genuine question that many fans will be thinking.

There's only one word for me after the 3 wins last week PRIDE.

To come back from behind against Burnley, beat Bayern away and then travel to London to beat Fulham in atrocious weather was nothing short of fantastic.

We have now got those battling qualities that have been missing for a while.

Long may it continue.

18 Mar 2019 13:23:27
Never thought about it like that, but you're bang on, that was 3 performances required for 3 tough games due to circumstances, great to see the team do what's required and marching on.

Between 9th-28th April City play Spurs away (CL), Palace away (L), Spurs at home (CL), Spurs at home (L), Man Utd away (L) and then Burnley away (L) .

They may even have a game against Brighton in the FA cup or the rearranged Cardiff league game (or both) crammed in there somewhere.

That is at least 6 very intense games, and 3 of the 4 league fixtures are away from home against very physical teams, all in 19 days. If they win every league game in that run (without dodgy decisions), we will likely concede the title to a phenomenal side. That's an awful fixture list that's piled up.

Agree10 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 18:30:50
MK Scouser, great stuff and some cause for optimism for the mighty Reds there. The PL table never lies and if City emerge from that fixture pile-up to win it, total respect to them.

Agree7 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 19:20:23
Spot on, Lads. If City come thru that UNCONSCIOUS fixture list while we win all our games then I will near applaud them for a brilliant season and I can deal with that outcome. As for our 3 wins last week, it simply shows how mentally tough this team is under pressure. Make no mistake about it, we were under IMMENSE pressure last week and even tho we were pegged back vs Bayern or Fulham or having a goal being gifted to the oppo. by another incompetent ref, the boys just dusted themselves off and got on with it.

Our boys are brilliant and so it the manager who tho not perfect, is a leader of men and continues to squeeze every drop of quality from these amazing players. i mean, when you see Sadio Mane by sheer will play out of his skin thru out last week. When you see him sink to his knees after the final whistle at Fulham, that just tells you the physical, mental and emotional drain the season is having on them. YET they continue to plug away and keep the dream alive. In the end, that's all we can and should ask of them. If Klopp were to realize all our dreams this season, it will be the club's GREATEST achievement in it's storied history, IMO. Bigger than Istanbul and all that. Make us dream, lads!

Agree7 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 19:29:37
Wholeheartedly agree with this summary and I was annoyed at people whinging yesterday when we won. At this stage of the season it's all about collecting three points. My gut feel is if we win all 7 remaining games we will be champions as I think City will be held to a draw somewhere.

Redwolf, can you explain please. Because our history is bigger than most clubs in the world and winning the league this year will be huge, great, fantablous . but far from the GREATEST achievement. Winning the league title just one season after being promoted from the 2nd division with next to nothing funding is a great achievement . so perspective please.

Boring international break so how about a little fun to ease our title tension?

Amongst the many things that irritates me about the media is the way it confers the status of ‘Liverpool legend’ on almost anyone who has ever played for the club. Now, I am not setting myself up as THE authority on who should be accorded this most honoured of titles but I am pretty damn sure that Phil Babb is not a ‘Liverpool legend’ as he was recently described on Sky. I have my own eclectic method of deciding who is and who is not for me ‘Liverpool legend’ - for some it is straightforwardly a matter of how their talent and longevity have contributed to the success of the club; for others it is for a one-off event of huge importance; and for others it is because they were completely bonkers. Some have forfeited potential ‘Liverpool legend’ status by their behaviour on or off the pitch or by joining a club I hate. So, for what it is worth, this is a far from comprehensive list of my personal choices of ‘Liverpool legends’ :

Ian Callaghan, Ron Yeats, Ian St John, Gerry Byrne (played almost the entire 1965 FA Cup Final against Leeds with a broken collar bone), Roger Hunt, Alan Waddle (he only ever scored 1 goal for us, the winner against Everton at Goodison in 1973), Steve Heighway, Joey Jones (mad as a box of frogs), Kenny Dalglish, John Barnes, Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, Jan Molby, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Xabi Alonso, Luis Garcia (for the ‘ghost goal’ against Chelsea in the CL semi final), Sami Hyypia, Stephan Henchoz (for playing as a second goalie in the FA Cup Final against Arsenal in 2001 and getting away with 2, possibly 3, handballs) .

I have deliberately left out people such as Grobbelaar (was he on the take? ), Souness (that business with the S**), Owen (joined Real Madrid and United), Torres (could have been had he stayed longer), Suarez (for obvious reasons) and Phil Neal (always thought he was a bit of a knob) . Others I have probably just forgotten.

Of the current crop, quite a few have the potential to become ‘Liverpool legends’ if they stay long enough and win things - Bobby, Mo, Sadio, TAA, Robbo, VVD, Alisson, Millie.

Who are your ‘Liverpool legends’?

Agree20 2Disagree

18 Mar 2019 12:55:34
Agree with pretty much your whole post except leaving Souness out 3 time EC winner and a serial winner. He rightly apologised for the interview with that lying rag and I accept that . In my view the best midfielder we've had in my lifetime.

Agree19 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 13:25:41
Nice question WW!

I'm a little younger than you, so my legends list is a little shorter!

However, I completely agree with everyone on your list from The King onwards.

I WOULD include Brucie, I don't think he was on the take, and I can't remember a bigger character at Liverpool in all of my time supporting them.

I would also include Reina and Dudek. No, I'm not just a frustrated ex-goalie! Pepe was the best goalie in the league for a good 5 years or more, and also had his eccentricities.

The Dude? Eell just for that one game! And he's very cool!

I would put Rob Jones on the list - absolute Rolls Royce of a player and injury cut short his career so cruelly.

Finally, and for no other reason that he just looked mean and enforced himself on the pitch, I would have Steve McMahon.

Agree15 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 13:26:31
Liddelland, that’s a very good counter argument for Souey. I agree that he is the best midfielder I have seen in my lifetime and probably the best captain and leader, too, and I love him as a pundit. But I did say it is a personal list and some of my choices will appear irrational to others - but that’s the fun part!

Agree15 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 13:44:09
Great discussion! Just for how many yards he stole for THAT free kick I’d give Gary Mac a mention, he had a massive impact on that squad too. Every player in the current squad has an application pending, we’ll find out in May.

Agree15 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 13:46:28
Zeddicus, thanks for the reminder - I am adding Jerzy Dudek to my list of ‘Liverpool legends’ if only for that miraculous double save from Shevchenko in extra time in Istanbul.

Agree14 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 15:14:32
Dudek, Garcia and Henchoz all are only cult heroes rather than legends imo. Decent players who had their moments but did not have the consistency or stature as some of the other figures. Players like Owen and Suarez are definite anti-heroes. Their efforts should be recognised and remembered for the awesome players that they were, but they do not deserve to be up there in the pantheon of legends. Torres and Alonso count imo. Weren’t here for very long but were the very best in the world in their position during their time here.

In my lifetime i would only consider Carragher, Gerrard, Hyypia, Torres, Alonso and maybe Henderson and Kuyt for their consistency and commitment as well. Cult heroes, as in players i remember fondly but not considered legends, Agger, Garcia, Mascherano, Reina, Coutinho, Sissoko, Dudek, Sterling, Riise, Lucas Leiva, Aurelio, Arbeloa, Benayoun and Sturridge (bear in mind my selections are from when i became a proper liverpool fan, 2005 onwards)

18 Mar 2019 17:13:01
Hmasson2, Emlyn was one of the greatest players to ever pull on the Liverpool shirt and I did think long and hard about including him in my legends list. But I have read a number of Liverpool players’ autobiographies in which he does not come across as a very nice guy at all; and after he retired he wrote a newspaper column full of what to me were outrageous political views. I did say my choices are personal and some are irrational.

But respect to you and your opinion - if Emlyn is a Liverpool legend to you and others (as I am sure he is) then that’s cool.

Agree9 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 17:14:27
I'd say the starter list is good but I would have Ray Clemence, Alan Kennedy for his winning goals, Ray Kennedy - pure class and Alan Hansen.

Agree8 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 17:32:04
Dod, how could I omit Alan Hansen (class personified), Ray Kennedy (a giant of a goal scoring midfielder) and Alan Kennedy (scored the winning goal in 2 European Cup finals)? They join my list. But Clem? Sorry, he left to play for Spurs.

Agree7 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - still your best keeper by an absolute country mile WW..

18 Mar 2019 17:50:34
I won't take your dislike of Ray/ Spurs personally, WW. Aside from Gerrard (and possibly a few others) they all move off to other clubs eventually. But Ray was top class as a keeper and as a person. Go on, make an exception, put him in ;o)

Agree6 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 17:59:10
It's all about opinion, WW, but Neal is a legend. Our most decorated player, so has to be. And if you're having Dudek, who didn't know a thing about that save, you have to have Clem.

Agree6 1Disagree

18 Mar 2019 18:17:36
Dod and Rome 1977, I love it that you guys are getting involved in the debate and my list of ‘Liverpool legends’ is flexible. But as I have said a couple of times, it is a personal list and may appear irrational to others. Sorry, no place for Clem or Neal on my list but happy to see him on yours.

18 Mar 2019 19:33:29
There are many legends of Liverpool but those that I remember in my lifetime are:

There are so many to choose from, my favourite was Terry Mc when I was very young. As a fellow Wirralian mate I tried to make a case for Danny Murphy for his Old Trafford winners, but he’s such a knob I can’t justify it 🤷🏻‍♂️.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 21:49:27
Ex_Reffing_Useless, Murphy is one of the ex-Liverpool media knobs who have forfeited any right to be considered for my legends list. Steve Nichol is another. You’ve got me wavering over Terry Mac now. He is another who scored in a European Cup final and he did score the greatest goal I have seen at Anfield, against Spurs in the 7-0 win in 1978. Oh go one, he’s in!

18 Mar 2019 23:09:42
Great topic Wirral Wonder.

Heya folks, haven't been around at all the last while, just manic busy with a new book nearing a release and all that self promoting/ congratulating crap, missing the banter guys, going to try and put aside time to get involved without sacrificing an Ed's amount of time in the process. If the Ed's wouldn't mind, in the near future I'd like to offer a link for any of you guys/ gals that are interested in a free ebook from a new fantasy series I'm absolutely sh**ting myself about releasing (cos it's pretty terrible 🤣) before it hits book shops, but anyway, enough of that, to sum up my feelings of the season so far- it's giving me far more palpitations than usual, it is absolutely brilliant. I'm not as confident as I was around December but to be in the race at this stage, is just incredible and can't wait to meet Juventus in the final #believe.

Aw shucks stone, thanks a million mate. I’m possibly going to do a follow up after the unexpected success it had. Who knew in this day an age, a book about deliberate fake news would do so well in America. If you can’t order any book in ed, let me know the name of the bookstore or whatever region it is. I signed a deal with a massive distributing company that apparently cover 90% of the market but I’m still not sure if it’s all live yet. I’m also such a small fry they’re unlikely to pay much attention to me. Amazon and google books 4 life!

Much appreciated folks, still got a long way to go but sure once Netflix come calling with the old blank check I’ll be satisfied, and it’s going to happen aaaany day now, because the world will clearly need something to ease the shakes after game of thrones ends and we have a wait before the wheel of time and name of the wind to come out on tv as well. Salah mate I’m doing well considering my day is essentially sitting in a dark room, staring pitifully at a screen with only lord of the rings playing on repeat in the background as company and only decaf coffee and my own frustrated tears as sustenance. Apart from that I’m genuinely great.

Eds any information as to why we've not been playing Shaqiri. is it because klopp thinks that he doesn't do enough back tracking or work off the ball? Just find it strange as he was almost always brought off the bench when we was looking to mix things up a bit.

Agree4 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I keep answering this question over and over but it feels like no one is bothering to read the answer! He lost Klopp's faith when he stopped bothering to work back and left Trent exposed. It was why we ended up going back to 4-3-3 and he was given a few chances off the bench to earn his way back but continued to fail to work back so he is now down the pecking order. You have to earn a place.}

18 Mar 2019 10:43:51
Be all and end all in my opinion is he's not good enough for this Liverpool team. 2 years ago? Sure he'd of probably fit right in but now nah, he's way off. I want to see him do well at Liverpool but will we see it? I have my doubts. He comes across as lazy, its like anything in life, if you try harder you succeed, if you keep on the same track you're stuck in a rut and if you put no effort in then you'll get nowhere. Shaqiri isn't putting enough effort in therefore doesn't deserve a place in the team right now, let's hope he sorts it out otherwise under Klopp it's game over for him.

Agree5 5Disagree

18 Mar 2019 14:36:45
For what it’s worth I had taken note! It really surprises me that this has happened as it’s not like it wasn’t clear on what Klopp’s minimum expectations were!

Given that Klopp would have signed Shaqiri knowing that he would have to change his game, I. e track back and he hasn’t done this, can you see Shaqiri getting a second chance for Liverpool?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Klopp expected him to realise that it was his last chance at a big club I think and also thought the price was worth the risk as the resale would no doubt recoup almost all of it.}

18 Mar 2019 15:18:27
I think he will realise that eventually Ed, at least i hope he does, he has real talent and unless he is a total clown like Balotelli i expect the penny to drop at some point; this is his last chance at a big club. We all want to love him, he just has to put in the work! Hopefully over time him and Keita will come good, competition for places in midfield can only be a good thing.

18 Mar 2019 15:41:18
OK 👌 Cheers Ed wasn’t aware you’ve addressed this before my bad . thanks for the reply much appreciated 👍. I agree if you ain’t going to put the effort in then you won’t make it in a klopp side. that’s one thing that can’t be said about lallana as he always puts the effort in when he starts or comes off bench.

as regards to working hard and tracking back 🤔 how can he fetch sturridge on as sub because he doesn’t seem to run a lot when I’ve seen him. the guy seems really slow and sluggish and looks like he’s to frightened to sprint in case he pulls up again. Which is a shame because Jedburgh a very talented player going to waste.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Mar 2019 19:26:25
Ed01, this was the fear and concern we all had when Shaq was being signed and unfortunately, it has come to pass. I mean if Salah was picking a sprint t the LB spot to protect the defence during a counter vs Fulham or when you see Bobbie track back to tackle Aguero at the edge of the LFC box vs City last season or when you see the amount of defensive work Mane puts in (in addition to his goals), what's Shaq's excuse for not doing the same thing? He does not have one that's why. I hope he gets his head sorted BUT if he can't then he will be out of here in a flash and we won't miss him at all esp. with Ox (who is a beast defensively) coming back next season.

Agree1 1Disagree

18 Mar 2019 09:20:25
Morning Eds,

Whats the problem with Shaqiri at the moment? can't seem to get a game for love no miney, is it due to perfomance in training?

Also have Liverpool got any remaining interest in Gomez, centre forward at Celta Vigo. Seem to remember a few weeks back when the Timo Werner talk was at the forefront that he'd be a second option? Is he still being looked at.

Cheers Lads.

It's a shame as the 4-2-3-1 was working well for us against the bigger teams in particular. Hopefully he'll get up to speed with the way Klopp and team likes to play and he'll pick up were he originally started for us if not can see his chances even more limited with Ox back fit.

{Ed001's Note - it is the way Shaqiri has acted everywhere he has been, which is worrying. He always starts off putting in work, then feels like he has his feet under the table and stops bothering.}

Yeah that is a worry ed001. It's strange as well because even if he feels he has his feet under the table he clearly hasn't as his game time has been so limited. You'd think the message is clear.

I hope its position the club look to fill whether that be from the current playing squad or elsewhere. Handy having another formation we are well drilled in when the games aren't quite going our way.

{Ed001's Note - in the past he has always blamed others for not recognising his talent, rather than realising he is the reason for sitting on the sidelines.}

We’re at the business end of the season where if successful, games should come thick and fast. I’ve got to say that the fixture list couldn’t be any kinder in terms of the time between reach game. No Klopp raised eyebrows needed. With the two Friday games and Porto first game on a Tuesday it spreads the games out in the most balanced way to give us the best possible chance of success. We also have 2 days extra rest than Chelsea in the sandwich game between Porto two games.

Let’s make this happen!

Agreed but a bit worried about our performances after breaks so far, don't we have a 13 day gap between games now?

Johnny1970 if you are not motivated for a home game vs Spurs with a chance to win the title then you have NO business being anywhere near the title chase. That's just the reality, my friend.
