Should the club provide a contract extension for an year or two to James Milner. In my opinion he is a great squad player and covers a lot of positions very well. I think it will be in the interest of the club to provide a new contract. Your thoughts please redmen.

Agree4 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 16:30:25
Wouldn't harm us in any way but I can't help but think his heart is with Leeds.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 16:43:15
I reckon we'll get another year out of him, fingers crossed.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 17:19:33
Agreed Salah, if we could extend for 1 year that would be ideal.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 17:43:33
I can’t see a lot changing between now and the opening day of next season. Unless Klopp knows that he has a starting replacement coming in or someone on the bench/ loanee who is better (doubtful) then he should get an extra year. He is far better than a simple squad player, he is playing the best football of his career still and he’s worth keeping for his pens alone.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - he deserves a one year contract at the very least. But if someone out there offers him a 2-3 year lucrative one I can see him going especially if Leeds come up. That would be a fitting swansong for the guy.

09 Dec 2018 19:13:49
Squad player?
Most consistent player we have this season.

Agree7 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 22:17:27
One year contract, for sure for Milner however I think if Leeds get promoted, he may be off.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Dec 2018 10:01:24
Keep milly on as coach after he hangs up his boots what a role model to young players.

Agree0 Disagree0

Morning Ed001

You doing a match review?

Thanks in advance.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, just been watching the game again ahead of doing it.}

09 Dec 2018 14:55:12
Can't wait for this one :D.

09 Dec 2018 15:49:02
3rd year in a row I've travelled to Bournemouth, what a brilliant atmosphere. Liverpool fans were superb I thought as well. Got chatting to a couple of lads last night in Bournemouth who seemed convinced that Lallana will be going to them either in Jan or the summer, could be general nonsense but they seemed to think it was absolutely nailed on to happen.

Agree5 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 16:20:08
Was there one for the Burnley game ed001.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - yes mate: here

I was a bit late with that one as I didn't get the chance to watch the game again straight away.}

09 Dec 2018 20:13:04
Cheers mate brill as usual. Have a Great Christmas.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - thank you RM.}

09 Dec 2018 13:53:42
I don't know if it's Klopps instructions or down to Fabinio and Keita's introduction but the teams intensity has definatly gone up in the last few matches. 😊.

Agree6 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 14:55:36
I think we will see over the next two games if it has.

Agree3 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 22:19:15
Ed01 said that probably Klopp had asked them to up the intensity and pressing esp. in the half spaces cos B'mouth players could not get out of the pressing traps being set for them. Just a thought.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 13:39:10
This is from today's Liverpool Echo: Shaqiri arguing with the linesman about rubbish on the pitch'. I wonder if he included some of the Bournemouth players.

Agree4 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 14:18:20
Bournemouth have a good team. Burnley on the other hand.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 17:21:29
Bournemouth did have a good team, missed Wilson and cook big time though. Lewis Cook looks a fantastic talent and it's a shame about his injury.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 22:21:56
Burnley are the new Stoke under then rugby manager Tony Pulis. Dreadful team, terrible tactics and a clueless, sore-loser, inept manager who sends his team out to induce some form of harm on the opposition cos he can't beat them football-wise.

Agree0 Disagree2

09 Dec 2018 12:32:00
Hi guys 6 weeks is worst case scenario at the moment, expect a contract announcement at some point also I think they're starting something with Robbo.

Agree13 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 12:48:36
Thanks for the update ST.

Agree7 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 12:53:14
New contracts for both Gomez and Robertson or just Robertson?

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 12:54:21
Cheers ST.

Agree1 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 13:13:25
ST i assume you are talking about Joe Gomez.
If that's the case then its very well deserved.
all our good wishes to him to get back right where he left.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 13:13:45
Ty ST, tell gomez we wish him a speedy recovery, he been superb this season.

Agree3 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 13:21:10
He deserves it, robbo I assume you mean. So does Joe. He is our 1st team cb and should be rewarded thus. Mind you, matip showed his quality yesterday. I thought that klavan was the wrong cb to sell but matip may prove me wrong.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 13:41:51
Thanks ST! That’s brilliant news mate!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 13:43:19
Thanks for the info ST 👍🏻.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 13:51:58
Thanks ST, hope you’re well mate 👍.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 14:09:27
Ye I’m guessing it’s just improved terms for Robbo but nothing’s close Gomez contract is easy and he’ll sign soon.

Agree5 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 14:21:48
Much appreciated mate. Great news to hear.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 14:29:56
Thanks ST. 👍.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 14:50:43
Send him our best mate - he’s turning into one hell of a player and I think he’s now our first choice IMO which says a lot given Lovrens experience and quality.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 14:44:34
Hope he’s okay he’s a class player, seems like a good lad and so unlucky with the injuries. A Liverpool legend in the making! Thanks for the information bud.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 16:34:15
Thanks ST, best wishes to them both. They definitely deserve it.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 17:11:00
Most importantly ST, how are you? I hope you're feeling better mate.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 10:31:01
Least number of goals conceded after 16 games in top flight football in England. (All time) .

6 - Chelsea. 04/ 05.
6 - Liverpool. 18/ 19.

Get in Alisson lad, what a bloody game changer he is.

Agree19 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 10:49:07
Don't forget vvd, gomez, taa, andy, and moreno, milner who all played kn defence either .

Agree17 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 11:03:34
That flick over Knockaert and the header yesterday have already entered LFC folklore as far as I’m concerned.
What a signing he is.
Liverpool have pulled some pearlers out of the transfer hat.
Our transfer business in general, perhaps out of the whole aspects of the club’s business, is so much better these last couple of seasons.

Agree11 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 11:14:35
What a signing he was. Absolute class.

Agree7 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 11:53:16
Allison is world class and so is Vvd. But we can’t just pinpoint them pair. Robbo, Gomez and Taa have been brilliant for us and will continue to get better. Lovren has put in some decent performances and Matip has been good of late.

Agree6 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 11:56:36
The Header yesterday was fantastic!

I know i say this all the time but god I love Alisson.

Agree5 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 12:35:45
Loved the header, myself. If you watch it closely, he goes up with one knee to protect himself (as all GK's are coached to do) and then heads the ball and "cleans out" the player. As a CF, a GK once told me that they do that to send a message to the CF to "Never come thru here again".

As for our defence, he credit should go first and foremost to the management and the whole team cos Klopp coaches team defence more than anything else. When you see the way our strikers and forwards, track opposition fullbacks on the overlap then you knw, it is not just individuals. Hats off to the whole team!

Agree4 Disagree2

09 Dec 2018 13:52:52
We put 7 past him in 2 games last season 😄.

Agree3 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 16:37:08
I still can't believe his actually protecting our goal post. Guy is boss.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 22:23:46
Ron, so what? And what has that got to do with anything or the current topic of the thread, exactly?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 09:14:17
Top ex pros always talk about how important it is to have leaders on the pitch especially when things aren't going well.

Thought I'd point out that IMO we have Hendo, Milner, VVD, Robertson (captain Scotland) and Allison (see Burnley at end getting players focused) . The last three all being quite new to us.

What do others think?

Ps does Fab remind people of a younger Matic?

Agree3 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 09:31:36
was thinking about this earlier weirdly - all those have captained their country as well as salah, mane. keita and possibly Wijnaldum. that's a lot of leaders!

Agree5 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 09:40:49
Spot on, OP. We have always lacked leaders in this team since Rafa left. I think people get so hung up on who is capt. (something only the English media seem to care about), they forget that you need a team of leaders. Back then, we had SG, Hyppia, Fowler, Pepe, Carra and Hammann yet ONLY SG had the arm band. The hope now is that the likes of Milner, VVD, Hendo (the club's leader), Robbo, Mane can continue to step up and be leaders.

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 10:14:18
You need leaders in all areas of the pitch, GK/ defence, midfield and attack.

Agree5 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 10:30:46
Ron don’t spoil the point! Origi? 😂.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 10:50:01
Please don't leave milner!

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 11:40:57
Firmino is clearly a leader. Salah's status as a world beater makes him a leader of sorts and we have mane who has captained his country.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 11:55:28
Hendo has only started around 50% of this season’s games. That shows there are other leaders throughout the team and squad.

Agree2 Disagree2

09 Dec 2018 12:36:45
Exactly, JK23.

Agree0 Disagree3

09 Dec 2018 08:40:07
I know he’s not popular on this site and I’m not trying to make an argument for his long-term future at the club, but it was good to see Lallana looking something like his old self yesterday. He pressed, passed the ball well, got back to fill gaps. His energy could be very useful through this tough spell of games.

Agree23 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 09:06:30
Yea thought it waa good to see him out there.

Agree12 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 09:07:00
An on form and fit Lallana has a lot of quality at his feet and we need as many experienced players this season as possible as the pressure wil build towards the end. The likes of Lallana, Milner, Hendo etc will be vital IMO to keep any nerves under control.

Agree8 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 09:33:26
i said it a while back and i hope I'm right but i think if he can find form he's a great trump card for us going into a very busy period. loves the way he actually moved the ball on quickly yesterday and made runs for the return pass.

Agree6 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 09:34:47
Is this the lallana who runs around like a headless chicken and does oh too too many cruff turns when a simple pass will do
for me if he left in january I would be very very happy, give his space to someone who will actually make a difference when they play.

Agree7 Disagree14

09 Dec 2018 09:43:51
Lallana did look okay when he came on. The issue with him (for the last 3-4 yrs) is his inability to play one touch football consistently. His Cruyff turns and penchant for stopping the flow to do step-overs and drag-backs does my head in. His lack of pace when in full flow is also a problem when on the counter. To me, he is no longer good enuff for us long term and will prolly leave next season.

Agree3 Disagree5

09 Dec 2018 10:25:34
Unfortunately he can’t stay fit long enough to get into the side. For me he should move on and make space for someone else.

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 10:35:14
I hope Lallana doesn’t leave in January, and I don’t think he will.
He can definitely bring something positive to the group and we’ll need a large squad to cater for injuries etc.
The best thing about the last couple of games is we’ve had Lallana looking brighter and fitter, but particularly Fabinho and Keita looking the part at last.
If those latter two click, we’re in business here boys and girls.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 10:51:22
He didn't do cruyff turns yesterday! his link up was good yesterday. well atleast way better than recent times.

Agree3 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 11:18:43
When he came on there was gaps. I'm not taking anything away from him but Bmouth are already an attacking side and when they was 2-0 down chasing the game Lallana had the freedom of the pitch.

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 11:57:15
As long as he does his talking on the pitch and not in the press he will be a good player to have in and around the squad and on the pitch when called upon.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 13:22:41
Lallana is a god option when he is in form, he is fit and keep the play simple. but for me he is not fit atleast 50% of the games and player like him who are such a high salary and not available for half a season is not good enough for me. Its the same question I asked a few days back about Sturridge (high salary and not fit enough/ good enough for the whole season) Players like Lallana should be replaced by youngster like Curtis Jones where as Sturridege by Rian Brewster atleast after giving these kids a chance we will know if they are good enough for the squad or not.
just my opinion.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 14:48:25
Ha ha, I knew it. I knew people would be praising Lallana at some point this season. He has always been a classy player. 18 months of injury doesn't change that.

Agree0 Disagree1

09 Dec 2018 15:10:30
No doubt Lallana had a good game yesterday. But these good games are few and far between the injuries and the poor form. I think it's too risky keeping him on. Need a squad of 25 where every single player can make a solid contribution every time he is called upon. This is ManC's strength or any champion's, for that matter. We have to think in the same way.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 18:59:19
I did point out in my original post that I didn’t want to raise his long term future with the club.

I don’t see any point in discarding of him in January unless we have an idea of who can step in to fill the space in the squad till the Ox is fit. We need one of them to allow Klopp to rotate the midfield and front 3 effectively throughout the rest of the season if we are going to sustain a title challenge and have a run in either/ both the champions league and FA cup.

Morning eds.
thanks for the review
Do you know if lovren is fit for tue. Also nice to be top how long for I don’t know but that’s enjoy 👌🏻.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Probably not.}

09 Dec 2018 08:54:55
Cheers Ed, have a good one mate!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - just a short one today. And I notice I forgot to include the story about Perez's foot to go with the picture, doh!}

09 Dec 2018 09:50:51
are you going to share the story ed lol.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - it was not even that interesting. Just about the fans being upset at him being taken off and there being a lot of moaning, so he uploaded a picture of the reason, which was that hole in his foot.}

09 Dec 2018 10:06:58
to be fair that's a fairly gammy foot!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 10:25:13
Hahaha makes sense now Ed, I'd wondered what the picture was about lol.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - apologies.}

09 Dec 2018 10:42:04
Nah no worries mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - nice pic though I thought.}

09 Dec 2018 11:05:00
Cheers for that ed, you shot yourself in the foot with that pic- I’ll get my coat.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I hope that didn't take you long to come up with, though you did have 2 hours+ after your first post....}

09 Dec 2018 11:39:12
Well ed, I’ve currently a number one comedy book topping three bestsellers categories as I type this witty reply. BOOM! *drops the mic, rubs away giggling like an idiot, and trips up on some discarded credibility.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - that is severely worrying. It just shows the difference between wit and humour I guess....}

09 Dec 2018 12:03:42
Never underestimate the monetary value of knock knock jokes ed 🤣🤣🤣.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - that is a much higher level than the gags on here anyway!}

09 Dec 2018 14:43:41
Thanks for update Ed. Sorry I’ve been AWOL recently. I hope the Chelsea fans are hit hard for the abuse. Just disgusting behaviour. Sad for football sad for everyone. Really pees me off.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 16:55:23
Why did the chicken cross the road?
To see the idiot.


Knock knock.
Who’s there?
The chicken.

09 Dec 2018 04:53:38
Our festive fixture list is a lot better spaced this season.

After Napoli we have 5 days between each match except for the period between Newcastle and Arsenal which is 3 days.

Will probably see a Burnley type of rotation v Newcastle as Arsenal and City follow that match.

5 days between Arsenal and City again.

Agree10 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 12:47:12
Yeah I think being out of the league cup makes a bit of a difference but yeah it doesn’t seem as congested as it did in the past but still it’s a tough schedule. If we come out of it relatively unscathed I’ll be impressed and will start to think about possibly winning something this season. Fingers crossed.
