Chelsea, Chelsea,
Chelsea, chelsea.

Agree4 Disagree1

08 Dec 2018 20:04:24
Well done Chelsea. Rode their luck for 1st 35mins, but shows what can happen when go direct at city. May I just say good goalkeeper he is. But Kepa on at least 4 occasions was very lucky and took unnecessary risks that usually costs goals. Brilliant day for the redmen let's smash Napoli and utd next week!

Agree8 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 19:37:37
Kepa isn’t in the same stratospheric as Allison never mind in the same league. Thought Chelsea defended brilliantly but didn’t think kepa was great.

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - it really does seem we got a bargain with Allison no doohamlet?

08 Dec 2018 19:49:23
I wouldn’t say a bargain, we got what we payed for, more a case of Chelsea’s car crash transfer policy resulting in a panic buy. He may still turn out to be good but for the money they paid i’d be wanting a De Gea, Neuer or Oblak, not some kid nobody had ever heard of.

Agree4 Disagree1

{Ed0333's Note - I hardly think he was a kid nobody heard of mate. He had a stellar reputation

08 Dec 2018 19:59:45
He's one of the best shot stoppers out there and still very young. I think Alisson is the better keeper but Kepa will be still be very good.

Agree7 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 20:09:53
There are plenty if players with an excellent reputation but they aren’t the most expensive in their position in world football. Like i say i’m sure he has talent, i’m just not sure spending that amount of money on somebody so young and unproven was very wise. But hey it worked with Buffon i guess, what do i know!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - it’s market forces mate. You charge what you think some idiot will pay. Remember Andy Carroll?

08 Dec 2018 20:52:04
Ah but Carroll’s price was set by Chelsea wasn’t it Ed0333?

Andy Carroll + 15m was what we wanted for Torres, apparently. we coulda got him for £5m! 😉😂.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - yes but the point is we were the idiots that paid the fee to Newcastle. It was a move stinking of desperation after Llorente and others had said no to us. £5 million would have been too much for that guy.

08 Dec 2018 21:48:34
I know mate, I was just kidding.

Fortunately, I think that’s the last ‘big’ gamble in the transfer market that we have got wrong, don’t you think?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 22:14:27
Benteke was a pretty awful buy mate.

Agree8 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 22:54:07
Good point, conveniently forgot about him! At least we got most of the money back on him, more fool Palace!

Gotta admit, Klopp hasn’t had an expensive dud yet.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - hmmmm im not so sure zed..

08 Dec 2018 23:58:35
I know you have a Fabinho blind spot my bitter mate 😉.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i dont have a blind spot zed i just dont rate him, if you want i will tell you hes the best thing since sliced bread if it pleases you mate..

09 Dec 2018 02:35:33
Ed025. who's the expensive dud then, Grucic was only 5 mil. So dud yes expensive not really. Klaven did the job he was bought to do. Unless your thinking of one from this season, Fabinho got off to a slow start but is settling nicer now, but Naby is concerning me with some very abject displays, but we know there is a great player in there if not consistent yet.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - grugic and klavan only cost buttons so i wont include them, naby is a quality player mart and im a big fan of his work he will come good im sure, fab i seen quite a bit of at monaco and was not a fan then and nothing he has done this season has changed that, but its only my opinion of course mate..

08 Dec 2018 19:07:12
Always said Luiz was a great player 😂.

Agree6 Disagree1

08 Dec 2018 19:20:54
Not only top of the league but made up a six goal difference, oh and unbeaten in the league.

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - and my fishmonger sandwiches were friggin culinary masterpiece

08 Dec 2018 19:26:14
New 16 game season anyone? 😂.

Agree11 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 19:26:45
We are top of the league! And only unbeaten team, great start to season just got to keep going. Chelsea have just shown the blue print to beat city hopefully people take note! The race is on.

Agree8 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 19:30:59
I just hope Klopp and the rest of the league watch the game and see how Sarri's rope-a-dope trick worked against ManC. Chelsea kept drawing ManC in, soaking up the pressure and then lobbing the ball beyond the advanced back 4 with diagonals. David Luiz was impressive tonight.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 19:24:33
Fishmonger or fishfinger?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - fishfinger my apologies got excited watching the blue half of Manchester lose....we’re top of the league fella 😍

08 Dec 2018 22:55:04
Ed0333, I’m pretty sure that eating fishmongers, even if it’s not illegal, is heavily frowned upon in Trump’s United States 😉.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - Eating fishmongers is like eating Pringle’s Zeddicus, once you pop you just can’t stop. Fismongers are so moorish especially the Scandinavian flavor. Ive woken up to Liverpool top of the league what a great feeling. I think I’ll treat myself to another fishmonger lol.

08 Dec 2018 19:07:06
Chelsea are doing us a big big favour,2 nill up 😀.

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - one word: KANTE

08 Dec 2018 19:13:27
Agreed ed he is so unbelievable no wonder Leicester won the league with him, goal difference been cut here by 7 over last 2 games, productive!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - He will go down as an all time great. Supreme player. Azpa has been really good for them also.

08 Dec 2018 19:19:46
No one will agree but sterling is brilliant such a shame he didn't play under klopp, yeah ed azpa has played well and he 30 plus bags of energy recovered well after midweek error.

Agree5 Disagree3

08 Dec 2018 19:39:47
He had a poor start to the game when they were not able to pass their way out of their half. But man, how he grew into that game!

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - most people are giving Luis and Azpa the plaudits but for me Kante improving was the catalyst for that win.

08 Dec 2018 19:40:21
Ed0333 I have to disagree. Aspa is like the kid at school with no talent but you can’t shake him off. An annoying defender but awful with the ball.

Agree0 Disagree4

{Ed0333's Note - ok pal I thought he especially good today compared to recent showings. It’s ok if we agree to disagree.

08 Dec 2018 20:04:31
Kante was easily the best player on the pitch today. Some great driving runs setting up counters. Whenever he gave the ball away he got it back straight away. Solid defensively as ever.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - the guys a friggin cyborg.

08 Dec 2018 20:53:06
The Kantenator?

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 17:57:59
Looking forward to your review of the game especially this time Ed, I only got to see the second half damnit! great result though, get in Liverpool, another clean sheet for our man Alisson too! Next up Utd, I was more concerned about Bournemouth tbh, I think we'll rip Utd apart next Sunday especially with me back on form. It can't come quick enough.

Agree3 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - maybe you should miss the first half more often then????}

08 Dec 2018 18:07:58
Hahaha good point!

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 18:19:39
Cracking performance today. Can’t wait for the Napoli and Utd game now. I would never underestimate Utd though and I would never underestimate Mourinho. If anyone knows how to nullify a game or an opposition it’s that man.

Agree9 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 18:41:34
True JK, you aren't wrong mate. I just can't see them getting anything at Anfield, I'd be very surprised if they did put it that way, they'll park the bus but we'll bulldoze the bloody thing down and batter them!

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 18:50:53
Salah I hope so mate. It’s been too long since we gave utd a good hammering.

Agree4 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 19:01:44
In seasons past they’ve been good at parking the bus, this season they haven’t, even De Gea looks out of sorts. I really hope we can break the hoodoo against them this time, it would be christmas come early.

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 19:08:09
I know JK mate, it's due isn't it, if I remember correctly the last time we slammed them was in 2009, I think it was 4-1! .

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 19:22:21
No we did in 2014 as well Salah, the one where Gerrard got 3 penalties, 4-1 i think it finished?

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 19:43:32
You also can't forget that Dirk Kuyt hat trick. Did anyone have any money on a Kuyt hat trick? No, I didn't think so, haha.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 20:10:53
Salah is that when Riera scored from pretty much a Reina throw or sthg?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 23:37:16
To be honest Irish Bill, I can't remember who was on the score sheet that day mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 07:31:51
Think that was the day Torres ran Vidic ragged Salah and even Dossena got on the scoresheet. Watched that game in an Irish bar in Manchester, the silence was deafening.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 17:28:23
Klopp taken us to the next level this season. Almost half way into the season and we are showing Champions status.

Yes might be getting ahead of myself but this run in an EPL season is unheard of when it comes to LFC.

We go again!

Agree3 Disagree1

08 Dec 2018 17:41:21
Spot on, Max. For me, with every game we win consecutively, is one more week we are allowed to believe that the PL title is there for us to grab if we dare to dream and have the courage and belief to grab our opportunity cos I still believe it will come this season.

Agree3 Disagree2

08 Dec 2018 18:22:53
Our performances haven’t been great this season and we’ve rode our luck on a couple of occasions in the league but been found out in the CL. The best thing is it looks like we are starting to find those performances now and if we can go unbeaten not playing well in 2nd gear then sky’s the limit when we get into top gear. Hopefully it’s not too little too late in the CL though.

Agree1 Disagree3

08 Dec 2018 16:32:50
Well thought the main referee today was pretty good. domt you think so too ed01?

Agree2 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - you mean when he failed to act after Cook studded Salah's calf you thought he was good? That should have been a booking after allowing play on. He made a few similar decisions and let a lot go and made dubious calls at times. I was not impressed myself. Though he was not as bad as Probert has been.}

08 Dec 2018 16:45:13
Yikes, Liverbird31! What game were you watching? The ref was poor on both sides. The fact that He did not card or to some, send Cook off for nearly doing Salah's archilles (I think Ed01 meant Salah's arcilles, not calf) which could have ended our season right there, completely kills your case. He let a lot go, as Ed said which could have ended up in fouls called on both sides.

The fact that we are even saying that a poor ref was noit as bad as an awful ref, tells you the abysmal standard of officiating in the PL currently which is sadly, no longer a surprise.

Agree0 Disagree5

08 Dec 2018 16:47:41
Sorry ya i was wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - you weren’t wrong mate, you just wasn’t right.

08 Dec 2018 16:40:16
Agreed there ed. that and one or two throw ins were wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 16:08:48
Seriously, how sexy was Keita's double nutmeg! 😀.

Agree11 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 16:46:28
Jurgenator, you should youtube Keita's games at RBL. Nutmegs is what he does. It's a talent obviously cos I have never seen a player succeed in doing them as often as Naby does.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed0333's Note - Meg!!

08 Dec 2018 21:50:35
Beardsley was the king of the nutmegs. It was usually the keeper but he could do them at will.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 15:15:04
56 goals in 74 appearances for LFC by Mohammed Salah. That's a blistering pace. The man can play football. 🏆.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - that is one friggin sexy stat 1969. Don’t overlook the fact he’s missed some absolute sitters along the way, just imagine his stats if he’d scored even half of those chances.

08 Dec 2018 15:28:06
Exactly Ed0333. And only one of those was from a penalty.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 16:09:52
Brilliant player only shame is his reaction when he scores these days. His face is like ed25 going into the off licence only to be told they are out of SC, well maybe not that bad. Joking aside reminds me of couts towards the end.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed0333's Note - maybe not celebrating is a form of celebrating. Seriously people there’s more pressing issues to worry about like hoping Jose keeps winning football matches and long may it continue.

08 Dec 2018 16:26:38
Jose can win football matches but it better not be next weel ed333.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - obvs Liverbird lol

08 Dec 2018 16:50:45
Acered, Salah may not be celebrating that much cos he has bigger targets for himself and LFC this season so him scoring a goal is just part of that process and nothing more. Or he is not celebrating cos he is enjoying watching the critics eat some serious crow after many called him a one-season wonder and all that. Just an opinion.

Agree1 Disagree2

{Ed0333's Note - It really doesn’t bother me to be fair if he celebrates or not but if I had a choice I’d want him to do the Ramos celebration every time he scores. I love that. It’s hilarious and must wind Ramos up to the point of him combusting.

08 Dec 2018 17:43:21
I would totally love that, Ed0333 if Salah did that after every goal he scores.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed0333's Note - just goes to show you don’t need to use twitter to destroy someone these days

08 Dec 2018 18:25:51
If you guys can find and watch the video of Salah going wild on the sidelines with Moreno and Shaqiri after Origi's goal at Everton, you would think differently about all this celebration mumbo jumbo.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 18:20:21
Fair reply from BRover and ed0333 both your comments make sense, like the idea of the Ramos celebration.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 21:15:04
I think you'll find that he has scored two penalties one against Huddersfield Town last season and the other against Red Star at Anfield this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 21:11:45
This is why he doesn’t celebrate he’s scored so many it’s mundane to him now ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 15:02:19
We’ve got past the magical 40 point mark should be safe from relegation now .
seriously 42 points from 16 games is seriously impressive.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - damn the blue side of Manchester

08 Dec 2018 16:51:58
Squizza, the earlier you get 42 points, the better. Can we now challenge for the PL now or is it too early to call?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 17:21:05
Let’s see where we are after Xmas if we are still in it at the business end of the season you never know hey.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2018 18:07:41
For a second I thought this was negative red Walter just relieved that we are not getting relegated lol.

Agree2 Disagree0
