Yaya Banana ladies and gents :) :D would love to sign him up.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 07:49:08
Lots of difficult tongue twisters names in there today ed :)

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - that is why I included them.}

20 Aug 2018 08:46:25
Today I learned there is a footballer called Yaya Banana.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 08:47:58
Thanks Ed001. Laurentiis really is a crackpot isn't he?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - there is a member of FSG who is a major shareholder in Roma, but that is not a secret. ADL is just a dick to be honest. He likes to stir up problems.}

Gerrard saying plastic pitches shouldn’t be allowed at elite football level without realising he was at Kilmarnock 🙈😂.

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Aug 2018 14:27:14
Honest question Mikey. Is Kilmarnock elite level though?
I Haven’t seen the comment or context.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 05:37:02
Eds and fellow reds, one random banter question if I may.
When I started watching Football (late 90s, early 2000s), we used to have very athletic forwards, who used to celebrate with acrobatic summersaults etc. We almost never see them anymore. What has changed? And who is your favourite goal celebrator in recent times?
I quite enjoy the creativity Firmino brings in to his celebrations.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - most managers dislike those celebrations as many players have been injured by them. I would think that is why they have gone out of fashion as they would be discouraged by academies.

As for favourite, I really do not care about celebrations.}

20 Aug 2018 06:48:55
It has to be Alan Kennedy’s after he scored against Real Madrid in the 1981 European Cup Final

It still makes me chuckle today, he didn’t know what to do with himself bless him.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 06:53:11
Alan Shearer, running with one hand in the air, simple, iconic.

Ray Houghtons forward roll 😂.

20 Aug 2018 08:09:33
Fowler’s In the Derby.

Or Fowler’s against the Mancs in 00/ 01 season at home.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 08:48:36
Any celebration that doesn't see the player injured or carded is fine by me.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Aug 2018 09:36:34
Anyone by a Liverpool player that Mane copies.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 10:50:44
Firmino by a long way. I’m always looking forward to see what else he’s thought up. I did love Suarez’s dive though.

Worst celebration was Borini with his ‘knife in mouth’ or Ozil’s thumbsuck. what’s that all about?

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 12:10:17
always enjoy a good old studge dance!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 01:41:53
Reading today that Achterberg has been working with Alison on his goalkeeping ahead of the Palace game - rugby pad training apparently. Anyone else worried about the Achterberg impact on our expensive signing.

Agree9 Disagree12

20 Aug 2018 05:24:03
Nope.

Agree6 Disagree2

20 Aug 2018 06:44:31
Shux, as long as he ain't beating him with concrete pads then I think Allison will be fine.

Agree4 Disagree2

20 Aug 2018 07:01:56
Maybe he’ll learn something useful .


from Alisson.

Agree7 Disagree4

20 Aug 2018 07:42:59
You have missed out the reason why. If you insist on posting a whiney bitchy post, at least put the whole reasons.
So ALLISON could get used to the physicality of the league!

Agree5 Disagree3

20 Aug 2018 11:43:35
Ok. apparently you (our gk coach haters) know better than klopp, dalglish 🙄🙄🙄even ed told he is good i think. we didn't have good enough gks. being a gk i know how hard it is when your teams dominating. yiu don't even get to do anything and suddenly u r askd to save a shot. unless u r concentrating properly it will dfntly b a prob for u.

If this result stays it will certainly Brighton up my day.

Lol love it mate.

19 Aug 2018 18:34:57
Ah now in Jose’s defence, with his limited resources I don’t know how’s he meant to remain competitive with the giants of East Sussex.

Agree9 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 20:47:19
Hey now, guys. This is not the time to gloat. Just Kidding! Get in, BHA! I celebrated each Brighton goal like it was an LFC goal. All the best for tmrw, lads. Up Da Poll!

Agree5 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 01:46:28
I love what Jose has done at United, long may it continue 👍.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 05:11:34
As happy as I am lads, and United didn’t look good at all, let’s best Crystal Palace first shall we?

I’m confident we are far more dangerous going forward, more energised in midfield, and more composed at the back than any other season in years, but this league has the ability to kick you in the teeth. City look like they are going to set a ferocious pace yet again this season and we need to show we can win these sorts of games week in, week out if we’re going to have any chance to compete for the title.

Agree5 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 08:50:33
Be fair Eamonsf - Brighton and Hove is technically both East AND West Sussex. The combined might of two counties!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 14:04:30
Is it just me or does Jose look increasingly like the person London decided should be their Mayor.

One might be gone by Christmas if reports are to be believed, one will cling on for as long as possible. Unfortunately for us likely to be the wrong way around.

Ynwa.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 14:24:03
Oh, and to follow up on another thread all the best Salah.

Afternoon Eds / fellow reds,

Eds, apologies if this question isn't the right place but I just wanted to ask you / fellow reds if they're aware of a website where I can get my hands on some reasonably priced tickets?
I'm panicking already, two games in, on how I'm going to get me and my little one a ticket for a game this season and these agencies are totalling two tickets, against your very average teams, at over £300?!
I'm a member but still struggling to get any joy .
Any tips from you / my fellow reds would be massively appreciated .
Thanks.

Agree3 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 17:28:54
Might be worth checking Twickets, never got football tickets off there but I’ve seen some for sale. No added fees etc so it’s amazing value.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 09:24:47
You won’t find third party tickets online for a reasonable price, if you’re a member you will get domestic cup ticket providing we don’t draw a big club. For the premier league you just need to persevere, I find the additional sales 2 weeks in advance of the game are easier to get than the big group sales pre season and in November.
Have you looked at hospitality tickets? they start at something like £150 but you get a meal and programme and a better experience, plus the money goes to the club not someone making a quick buck out of the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 16:36:18
Hi Ed mate hope your well. Are you happy with the coaching staff we have in place other than our goalkeeping coach.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, seems a good mix.}

19 Aug 2018 16:05:02
Of course city are favourites right now but if they lose against 1 or 2 top sides they could lose confidence and momentum and drop silly points everyone is capable of. Can they handle the pressure of a closer challenge and defending the title whilst going through a rough patch. If they fall behind a team can they remain calm or will they start playing over attacking trying to force the issue and again drop points.

I understand people seeing them today worry but they still have the same weak defence that can be got at. I think if we just concentrate on supporting our lads 110% by may we could be in a very promising position.

Agree5 Disagree4

19 Aug 2018 19:43:18
I doubt that. You could see the fear oozing out of Arsenal in the first match - admittedly, the players are still trying to attune themselves to Emery.
Apart from us and Chelsea, I don't really see any team playing City with any iota of confidence, not even Spurs - and Spurs are good enough to beat them.
But Sterling, Sane, Walker and Mahrez were on the bench, KDB was out. No one noticed. I wish we'd signed Fekir.

Agree4 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 20:20:38
Someone needs to stand up to them for us to have any chance - hopefully a plucky performance like Brighton today.

Agree3 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 20:52:12
Realtofel, you make some good points there. I would evenb say that Chelsea are not the finished article yet cos had they played LFC instead of Arsenal who were low on confidence, they would have gotten their arses handed to them on a plate with the chances Arsenal missed.

At this point, it's prolly only us who can give them a good go right now. BUT I will say that we can't get caught up in all that and start worrying about what City is doing and allowing that to ruin our lives and drive us mad esp. when we don't win a game (cos that will happen) . City are the Favs., end of story. We just have to try to win every game and move on from there.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 13:11:08
Chelsea and Arsenal will come good the mancs are not as bad as they look they will get better regrettably if we can stay up and around the top 4 with them keep ourselves in the mix til January then see what happens.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 13:12:58
As long as we match their (City) results and get 4 points off them, doesn't matter what they do.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 15:29:53
Hate to be like this, I just don’t see us beating city to the title, I just don’t think they’ll drop enough points. Yes we may beat them, and maybe our 11 can match them. But they just score goals, and their bench had same, Sterling, mahrez, with KDB out. They can handle 3/ 4 key injuries and still shift it around and put out a very strong eleven.
I think we will come second, I think we will get more points, but Huddersfield weren’t even in the same league today, yes they weren’t good by an stretch, they rolled over, but that’s part of their aura.
They can rest Aguero, sane and mahrez and still start Jesus Sterling and Bernardo Silva. If we wanted to rest, we are losing a lot more quality that they are.
I know I’m going to get a lot of disagrees, but you have to respect the way city play, their strength and their imperiousness in most games.

Agree13 Disagree7

19 Aug 2018 15:40:11
It will be close I think.
Can’t really judge after 2 games.

Agree8 Disagree2

19 Aug 2018 15:40:51
Its been two games man! they played two fairly poor sides. Anything can happen between now and October/ Novemeber. let alone by the end of the season. Just chill and enjoy the football.

Agree10 Disagree1

19 Aug 2018 15:44:16
City were favourites before the season started and still are. But they’ve literally played two games, let’s see how things look around Christmas.

Agree9 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 15:47:24
Yeah we probably have our best ever team in the Premier League, it's a shame that we're up against probably the best ever team in the Premier League.

There's no pressure on us and unlike them, we have nothing to lose. If we want to challenge, we need to be consistent throughout the season and hope teams nick points off them (red cards, pens, dodgy offside goals etc) .

Let's just enjoy our football and take things one game at a time.

Agree9 Disagree3

19 Aug 2018 15:58:44
How city and liverpool both perform away from home will be the decider this year.

Both teams will blow most away at home.

Lets see how they do if we are breathing down their neck after 20 games.

City have the stronger squad and were favourites going into the season.

And low and behold after only 2 games nothing has changed!

Agree5 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 18:02:24
Yes it’s only a few games in, but it’s the same squad as last year, adding mahrez and mendy. They haven’t lost anyone, or is we any reason to b me 15 points worse than last season, even if we get 15 more.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Aug 2018 19:13:42
Lads please, can we wait till we have played four or five games or at the very least, wait and see can we beat Palace before we announce ourselves as contenders.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 19:35:11
Game 2 wow!

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 20:58:32
Spot on, Wolverine. Firmane, City played an Arsenal team who are in transition and a Hudd team that literally gave up before even stepping on the pitch. That is going to happen this season at the Etihad with these lesser teams. We cannot be getting our wires crossed or getting worked up over whether we can beat City to the title or not cos we are going to need the psych ward doing that.

We just have to focus on nus and what we do and not worry about what happens with City esp. at this early stage after two measly games. News Flash: City are Favs., end of story. We have achieved nothing yet and it is up to us to prove ourselves and if we don't win the title then, NOBODY will be surprised.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i will..

20 Aug 2018 07:07:30
To win the title you need s large squad packed with quality, you need team spirit, consistency and luck.

City have played 2 games, you can’t judge them on consistency or luck after 2 games. There is no reason why we can’t streak ahead of them let alone “catch” them.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 08:53:03
You never know what will happen over a season. They might reach the CL final and slip up for the last 5 games as they focus on that. They might lose Aguero and Jesus for 4 months at the same time and be left with all that creativity but no one reliable to finish the chances. We might lose Salah and Mane for 6 months and be way off pace by the end.

It's a long old season. We have a good squad for the moment and so do they, best just see what they do really.

Agree0 Disagree0

Premier League 2018/2019 Top 6 Prediction

{Ed's Note - Banda has posted a new article entitled, Premier League 2018/2019 Top 6 Prediction

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 20:33:44
Jesus top scorer for city


Serigo won't be far if this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 09:01:27
Love this prediction - we were the first team to ever score 100 goals and not win the league, and now we're tipped to be the first over 90 points to not win it! Would be a special kind of gutting.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 14:33:31
Watching citeh right now, how good is David Silva?

#GOAT.

Agree6 Disagree3

19 Aug 2018 14:51:36
Not quite Liverpool related, but fair enough. Silva is a genius, but the greatest of all time? At what? Maybe Manchester City’s greatest ever player, but that’s it.

Agree4 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 15:07:08
One of the greatest premier league footballers!

Agree5 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 15:18:31
Seeing as there is a man city thread, can anyone shed light on Sane? I thought he would be a mainstay in the side with him not going to the world cup? Or is it just pep switching his options. Just seems weird he hasn't started either game.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 15:43:14
My word City are breathtaking. Even when up by 3 or 4 goals they are relentless going forward. They just don't seem to take their foot off the gas.

Not many teams can beat them. We have the energy and pace to press and counterattack them but who else can? United beat them by defending deep and nicking goals off set pieces/ crosses. Hard to see how and where else they'll drop points this season.

I'm still confident in our squad and believe we can give it a good go.

Agree3 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 19:39:33
Great player, not in the top 20 greatest ever players though.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 20:59:39
Ron, not even in the top 30. Great little player tho, no question.
