Just watched the players getting off the bus and was disappointed to see only 5 of them and Klopp went over to the people waiting to sign autographs. Well done Klopp, Sturridge, Henderson, Klavan and the other 2 (who I couldn't see before the camera cut away), but disappointed in the likes of TAA and Joe Gomez who just walked straight past those waiting kids. Players should remember they work for us!

ST if you read this have a word with Joe, just a few minutes signing autographs can make a child's year. It is not much to ask of him. }.

Ah no way Ed! That's a great pity especially from the young lad's.

I'm so desperate for DS to find form, I've seen so many snippets of what a positive figure he is behind the scenes.

{Ed025's Note - pity hes not a coach really..

14 Oct 2017 12:48:54
I wouldn't be surprised if he went that way, he seems to do a lot of mentoring of the youth players.

{Ed025's Note - he needs to be on the pitch though mate..

There you go Harry, any good?

14 Oct 2017 09:14:27
You must be quick at typing mate. Will read this later on today, thanks for your time doing it and to Harry for requesting it.

Ed001, just a message to you mate, all these articles you are doing are fantastic and I really enjoy reading them so a huge thank you for doing them, I've not been on a website before where somebody has put so much of their time and effort in at the request of others.
Your knowledge of the game is absolutely incredible and the way you put it into words even more so. You said something the other day something like the longer your articles are the more people don't want to read them, or something on those lines. The longer the better mate I like to learn, I love reading something new, your work provides exactly that. So probably for the 100th time this week, Thanks mate. :) Have a good day!

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - maybe the key is to provide a mix of short, medium and long articles to please everyone? Most people do tend to turn their nose up on the net to anything longer than a couple of paragraphs. Maybe you are just a more discerning reader?

As for putting the time and effort in to fulfil requests, I look at it as what I would want if it was me visiting. You see millions of websites out there that just want to take advantage and clickbait people, they are not what I want from a site. So I try to provide the service I would like to get from websites I visit. I am just glad people appreciate the sites and enjoy reading what I produce.}

14 Oct 2017 09:35:08
Yes I know what you mean mate, though I love the longer ones any of them is good for me.

Yes exactly, before I discovered the site, you see links here, there and everywhere, and it is exactly that, clickbait or the vast majority is anyway. Same as a lot of youtube videos as well, all to get their views and if it's not youtube it's twitter if its not twitter its facebook sharing all these links to so called articles, load of rubbish if you ask me but maybe that's just me. Massive credit to you for been part of the very few legitimate writers on the internet, these days there's not many.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - thank you, it can be hard at times, especially over the winter period as page views drop off and so you have to rely on money saved up over the summer, but it is worth it to keep my self-respect intact. I just wonder how long before the bubble will burst on the clickbait stuff, people will surely, eventually, hopefully, see sense and stop clicking on it! Then everyone will have to write decent readable stuff to get a click.}

14 Oct 2017 09:56:12
Hello Ed01, Thanks for the article. Impressive. You covered all the three areas in the deep of the midfield where we are currently struggling big time. I was thinking about Pep using Fernandinho to great effect this season. He is slowly becoming their backbone. I will share your article to couple of other groups. I want you to name 5 best players in their position.
I believe the next part is about CM, ( Traditional Souness to more classic Zidane / Carzola )

You should have ended the article comparing our current team to 08/ 09. Not much difference in fact our current personals are better than what we had back in 08/ 09 except the two in the middle who set the tone for everything . Alonso and Mascherano. Football is always won / loose in the midfield. We often neglect this area of the pitch and improve the front and back.

This article will open up people attitude towards midfiefd and midfielders.
Slightly out frok the topic I want to hear from you on Jan Molby. What was he?

Good job and good luck!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I was trying to keep the article from becoming Liverpool-oriented and leaving it open mate. I tend to end up doing so much Liverpool stuff it makes a nice change to open out a bit.

Jan Molby was a playmaker, the most immobile one of all time but also one of the best. When they told him he was a central midfielder Jan took it literally and never moved out of the centre circle.....}

14 Oct 2017 10:25:28
In regards to Guardiola's more traditional use of a full back this season where Walker stays back to basically form a back three, I'd just like to ask, didn't he do something similar with Barcelona? If I remember correctly, he would have Abidal holding with Puyol and Pique, Busquets in front and Alves bombing on. I feel like Guardiola does overcomplicate the game unnecessarily and it's interesting to see him go full circle back to what originally worked with his style of play.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Oct 2017 10:54:54
Spot on, Zpecialone. Pep seems to want to be known as some kind of revolutionary and wanting to reinvent the wheel in football. He constant tinkering with players, tactics, schemes and formations is what has led to his failure to get Bayern any further in Europe and I remember some of the players constantly complaining about things of this ilk. Football is a simple game BUT it is certain managers or in this case "philosophers" that make it way too complicated.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 08:52:00
Will it ever burst? I don't know mate all I do know is I stay clear of them kind of thing's now, not only is it clickbait half of them kind of links have viruses as well, or are totally unrelated to what it's even titled.

What annoys me really is, due to people clicking on these daft links all the time, it puts their website ranking up, so they become let's say popular websites, more subscribers on youtube (somehow), more followers on twitter or more likes on facebook, again, somehow, over what? useless content. To me they are targeting youngsters more then anything because they are so gullible.

We can go on about fake internet articles/ videos all day long but another example, kids these days watch all these vloggers on youtube again the majority of which are full of absolute rubbish and it's click bait ' BIG LIVERPOOL TRANSFER NEWS, MUST SEE! ' kind of thing, you click on it and it talks about absolutely nothing but garbage, about who 'may' be available next year, what a load of utter nonsense.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Oct 2017 08:11:42
Over the past few games we have created lots and lots of chances and I get the feeling that someone is going to get a right battering. Now am praying that's we have saved it up for today.
A win today would fill our team with the confidence needed to push on for the season especially as we will be without mane for 6 weeks.
With a champions league game mid week and TH next week A WIN is a must.
I would love to go to work on Monday with a big smile on my face ready for all the manc's

Indeed mate, I'm trying to stay positive, I'm hoping we can get a couple in during the first half hour otherwise I won't be able to chill out lol.

That sky sports pi—ing me off one the presenters just said Man Utd will walk up to the wall of champions see how many trophies Liverpool have won then he said but we all know it’s have won more Rrr getting cancelled this sky soon eds 😤😤rant over now.

Sky is something I'd never pay for, get a dodgy box mate.

Agree4 Disagree0

14 Oct 2017 07:54:19
I have been saying it for months now even since last season, that the mainstream media is out to get Klopp and not just Sky. Throughout last season, all they did was write hit pieces on Klopp each time we were in a sticky patch while each time Mou, Pep or Wenger were in a jam, they always made excuses for them and protected them. They all said that we would not make top 4 ahead of Arsenal and Utd and YET we did and still, they are still trying to cause unrest among our fan base in a bid to get Klopp sacked. After we beat Arsenal this season, 75% of the coverage was about how bad Arsenal was and the rest only mentioned how great we were in passing. See what I mean? Well, it's up to us to rub their faces in it just like we did last season in getting top 4 and CL footie.

Agree3 Disagree3

{Ed025's Note - you know what that sounds like bingo? a persecution complex, hes a bit of a media darling as i see it but its hard for the media or anyone to compliment him when results and performances have been weak, jose and pep both got a bit of a roasting last season and conte has been bashed about this one because in the end its a results business mate, things like this give fuel to those who think you are whingers..

14 Oct 2017 08:07:44
Cheers mate.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Oct 2017 10:21:12
You are having a laugh Bingo.

Klipperty the clown is the Media darling. The whole jumping round, hugging, kissing, linking arms to solute the draw cringy thing is loved by the media.

Agree0 Disagree1

14 Oct 2017 11:08:58
Ed25, I am not whinging neither do I have any type of complex. If Klopp screws up, he deserves the criticism he gets. Again, through out last season and anytime we struggle, they come out with pathetic stats to compare Klopp's win pct (a worthless stat, IMO) to say BR or Woy or lately, Moyes of all people whereas every man and his dog knows, none of these managers are a patch on Klopp based on achievements or trophies won. NONE! I am not saying they should write puff pieces about Klopp talking about how good he is whereas he is struggling. All I'm asking for is equal coverage good or bad instead of picking and choosing which managers we bring down and the ones we don't. See De Boer.

Stand, you are the one having a laugh. Your manager is the most protected of all PL managers as the media is terrified that if they defy him and hold him accountable for his mistakes which mind you, are many, he will stop giving them interviews. Remember how he was saying there was a witch hunt against Chelsea two years back and none of it was true? Remember how he was struggling mightily in the PL throughout last season and the media mostly said nothing? No one called him on that and Dominic King kept taking his side.

But when Klopp struggles, they come out with worthless articles about how BR was better than him whereas that is patently false. If Klopp wants to hug and kiss his players, that is his perogative and his players love and are fighting for him. It's not my fault that your manager is known to be quite vile, calculating irresponsible and blames every man, woman (YES, Dr Eva Canneira) and child (Luke Shaw) for his own problems. Who's the clown now?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i will have that bingo, the thing is that all supporters will be judgemental thats just the way it is, im a massive klopp fan myself but when supporters go on about it just being their manager getting criticism it does seem a bit cry baby to me mate, let them judge at half way into the season when the cream will rise to the top, i still believe liverpool will be right up there myself..

I’ve just been reading through the posts and everyone seems so down and pessimistic about tomorrow (Mr ‘doomsday’ Dennis especially) . Am I the only person who thinks we’ll do them tomorrow? I really do. The City game apart, where there were mitigating circumstances we’ve been playing well. We just need to finish our chances and we’ll be fine. They will be shocked at how good we are they haven’t played any games against teams as good as us this season. Believe guys we are still the same team that smashed Arsenal 4-0 and it could’ve been 8. Lukaku and Micky will be anonymous they always are in big games. We will win I’m 100% sure of it.

Agree7 Disagree1

14 Oct 2017 00:24:20
I like your positive post mate, let's hope you are right.

Agree5 Disagree0

14 Oct 2017 04:09:14
We can still win the title we have 12 pts in 7 games where we were very unlucky. 31 x 3 = 93 pts still to play no reasons to be so pessimistic yet. There is time to change our fortunes starting against Manchester United.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Oct 2017 08:00:28
Spot on, Ings and the rest. If you think some are pessimistic on this forum, let me invite you over to the This Is Anfield comments section. By many of the comments on there, we might as well forfeit the game and crawl up into a corner and cry our eyes out till the end of the season. Yeah, those are our very own fans saying that. My message to them and those on here is: If you are so sure that we will fail pls, don't watch.

As for the game, I know the odds are stacked against us and the media bias towards Utd is deafening. However, Klopp is a master at these types of games. His record and reputation is unrivaled in these situations and don't forget, we have beaten Utd with teams way worse than this one in the past. We are at home and hopefully, the 3 points will be our own at the end.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i would say to the doubters...put money on utd if you think they are superior and will win easy mate..

14 Oct 2017 08:53:15
Yeah Bingo agreed mate, there's a lot of daft supporters who may as well be supporting Utd the way they go on about how 'terrible' we are etc. All before the whistle has even been blown, luckily not all are like that. We do know though, they will all crawl out of the woodwork should we lose today, the site will be inundated with them. Good luck to the eds should that be the case but let's hope it's not.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Oct 2017 11:11:29
Love it, Ed25. Put your money where your mouth is if you are so sure of yourselves that Utd will walk this game, LFC haters.

Corleone, I propose the Ed's have their pain-killers ready cos it will be complete mayhem.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - we should be supplied with a bottle of JD and an ounce of wacky bacca bingo..

14 Oct 2017 11:16:27
Hah Ed025 I used to always bet on liverpools opposition, and at least if we lost then I'd have free beer money to drown my sorrows. Problem is, half of the games ended in draws and a double chance pays out sweet FA!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i do the same with everton just off now on my luxury yacht to drink some crystal champagne mate.. :)

14 Oct 2017 11:45:21
Today is the day we get our mojo back👍🏻.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 08:55:22
There is a similar situation there mate to city game we have no mane and you no what happened against city that's probably why the doom and gloom brother but I am like you I think we can beat them today 2-1.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Oct 2017 23:09:40
I've been amongst the negative posters in recent weeks but I can't wait for tomorrow. This is the kind of game Klopp's shines in, we're the underdog going against the establishment, expectations are lotws but Klopp's going to pull it out of the bag. Bring on 1230.

Agree6 Disagree1

13 Oct 2017 23:12:56
It can't come quick enough mate, I'm bored of waiting now. I just want the game to be here and done with, I would absolutely love it if we won. I do hope Klopp has something up his sleeve mate.

Agree3 Disagree1

13 Oct 2017 23:27:31
Careful what you wish for. We can’t defend, we’re weak in midfield and Mane is out long term. United are flying and easily capable of doing to us what City did. I’m struggling to see where the goals will come from but can see where the goals will be conceded.

Agree2 Disagree9

13 Oct 2017 23:52:26
We’ve got goals all over this team Dennis. I agree with you defensively but to say you can’t see where goals will come from is ludicrous. I really fancy us to come out of the traps hard and be 2-0 up by half time. Jose will slow everything down for the first 20 minutes but I think we’ll have too much for them. On the flip side if we don’t get a goal then the longer it goes the more chance we will lose 1-0. We can’t let them score first that would be a disaster. I really do think it will be one of those Anfield days where we come out so fast we smash them in the first half an hour. Whatever happens I can’t wait for the game to start!

Agree5 Disagree0

14 Oct 2017 08:05:25
Dennis, if that is the mindset every manager and player or fan has, why bother even showing up to play and why should the fans even watch? Might as well give up, crawl into a corner and cry till the end of the season and pack it in. You say you can't see where the goals will come from. We have scored near 25 goals in all comps. this season and could have been way more had we taken our chances so your negativity is clouding reality. Get behind the team and cheer them till you can't cheer them anymore for 90 mins. The only thing to fear is fear itself.
