Is there any good site to pick up tickets for any home matches. I'm hoping to bring my 2 boys to the arsenal home game in Dec but I have looked at prices that range from £250 to nearly £600 per ticket. These sites have over 500 tickets per game, no wonder we can't get tickets for matches. A little help from anybody would be more than grateful. Cheers fellow reds.

Needs to be stopped all this tickets websites. All clubs should boycot these sites and only the club should be dealing with the punters.

Another fantastic free kick from Harry Wilson for Wales, against Ireland tonight.

Hopefully it'll put The Dinosaur and The Clown one step closer to the Dole Office.

Eds with Virgil returning injured, is it his rib still or a new injury? Does this mean he must be a doubt for Huddersfield?

{Ed002's Note - Why not wait until the club say something.}

I notice Fekir' s contract expires in 2020. If interest would to be there at the end of the season a cut price deal would probably be possible as Lyon would hate to lose him for free at the end of next season.

Agree2 Disagree0

I think we'll sign him in January without anybody expecting it.

{Ed002's Note - Why would Lyon look to sell in January nor deal with a club that messed them and the player around? Would Liverpool meet the higher fee?}

13 Oct 2018 10:06:59
True Ed2 mate.

Tbh though rumour has it, we signed him already ;) lol summer was a pain in the backside wasn't it, hearing we signed him time and time again, bloody hell!

Have a great Saturday Ed2.

{Ed002's Note - You have a good weekend as well, and don't hold your breath over Fekir.}

13 Oct 2018 13:17:30
Cheers Ed2, take care mate.

12 Oct 2018 17:22:01
Not looking for an argument, and not saying this is what happened with us and Fekir but if a buying club has agreed a fee and wages for a player but something is brought to their attention from the medical which makes them think its to big a risk to pay a huge fee for a player. is that generally seen within the game as messing the selling club around or is it just being prudent with the paying of fees for players who have a higher chance of injury down the road?

16 Oct 2018 17:55:57
It won't happen. Fekir was paraded around all the top English clubs and no one bit. There was nothing stopping us signing him, we pulled out so why would we go back in for him in January? Wishful thinking. There are other attacking mids out there, better.

12 Oct 2018 21:39:12
It's quite embarrassing to ask and not related to Liverpool at all and maybe the Eds won't even post this but I'm fairly desperate.

This week the company that I worked for, quite suddenly, went into liquidation and all 500 staff were instantly made redundant and will not be paid.

I have a young family to care for and being the sole bread winner I am obviously now desperate to find work as soon as possible and am trying all avenues, it's a kind of long shot but if anyone here knows of roles, connections, companies, based in the Nottingham/ East Midlands area I would appreciate any recommendations.

I've spent my career in training and education but will try my hand at anything that pays enough and anything in sales!

I've seen that this is a wonderfully supportive site in the past and desperate times call for desperate measures! I'm sorry that this might seem inappropriate for the site but I'm just trying all I can.

Thanks guys.

{Ed001's Note - good luck Geo I hope someone can help.}

I can't help you with work George but I maybe can help in other ways, are you ok to pay bills etc? if not please do let me know, I'd be more than willing to help out. What you're going through is bloody horrible and I'm truly sorry to hear it. If you want to email me just let me know, I'll help if I can mate.

12 Oct 2018 22:15:58
Good luck George, I hope something comes up for you mate.

12 Oct 2018 23:20:19
I've got my fingers crossed for you George. I sincerely hope you get sorted soon.

13 Oct 2018 16:25:23
Good luck dude had similar situation a while back. just keep applying for jobs maybe on indeed or other job search engines.
Dont be picky with jobs take anything until a role becomes available in your choosen field. Uber delivery drivers are always recruiting and you can work as and when you want. Good luck though.

14 Oct 2018 15:36:11
Cheers for the support guys, and Salah you're too kind, what a top bloke you are.

Luckily I've made some great business connections and I think we're going to be alright!

Just to make things football related, the company which went into liquidation was owned by the same man who owned Derby County when they became the worst ever Premier league team. Bit of a pick it turns out!

14 Oct 2018 15:55:28
Absolutely fantastic news George, I'm really happy for you and your family that you have managed to sort something.

Thanks for the kind words mate but I'm nothing special, I've just been through struggles in the past mate and I've seen plenty of people go through them, there's nothing worse. Luckily these days I'm in a position where I can give back a little you know? and there's no better feeling than helping others in my opinion George.

Good luck with the new path you're about to be on mate, I genuinely hope it goes really well for you.

15 Oct 2018 11:24:21
Hi George, I've always done a lot of networking through LinkedIn. I've built my network up to around 18k connections. Throughout the years, a lot of my connections have been in the same predicament. If you are on LinkedIn, and right a brief summary of what has happened and what you're looking for, I'm happy to share with all of my connections and ask them to share with theirs. The success rate we get by doing this has always been high. Anything we can do to help.

15 Oct 2018 12:58:34
Nice one Welsh, what a man. Quality that mate, keep up the great work.

15 Oct 2018 17:03:01
Look after yourself georget mate. Fingers crossed you get through it soon enough. Ynwa.

17 Oct 2018 10:12:20
Not much use if your sorted but i know Amazon in Coalville will be looking for staff as its about to enter peak season for them. We do a lot of transport/ storage for them and they are manic this time of year.

12 Oct 2018 10:18:58
Reading the Sport section of the Scottish paper Daily Record about Gazza and the Hall of Fame, strangely when they talk about the greats it's Sir Alex Ferguson and Kenny Dalglish, I'm not English so don't know the Honors system but I thought it was Sir Kenny too or was it a different honour the King received?

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2018 13:48:31
It is Sir Kenny, McGoveb. However, he was only knighted this year, so 'Sir Kenny' is relatively new. Whereas ol' whiskey nose was knighted in 1999 so 'Sir Alex' has had 19 more years to settle into the lexicon!

11 Oct 2018 10:15:05
Do you think we would go back to counter press high attacking football or stick with the pragmatic type against Huddersfield?
They are not a threat and are certain to get relegated. If anything we should improve our Goal difference. I would play with 4 attackers.

Thoughts?

Agree2 Disagree1

11 Oct 2018 10:36:06
Id just keep things the way they are personally mate, we'll hammer them.

11 Oct 2018 11:09:07
No, I reckon Klopp will revert back with this one. I think it feels like we’ve been playing a more pragmatic style forever because of the run of fixtures we’ve had, which we have been trying more not to lose than attempting to win. However, him and his team are clever and sensible enough to know when to hold back and when to go for it. The front three need some inspiration, fluidity and confidence so I think the shackles will be left off for longer with this one. Hendo and Winjnaldum behind Shaqiri and the 3 amigos. I would be surprised if he gives as much respect to Huddersfield’s threat as he did for Chelsea’s and City’s.

11 Oct 2018 16:52:32
I agree with Harry and Bardzo on this one, I don’t think Huddersfield have anything to hurt us with, I think we will attack in this game and the full backs will be given more licence to go forward.

11 Oct 2018 20:39:43
Whatever the score at 55 minutes, 1-0, 0-0, or 0-1 down, or even 3-0 up, I'd bring Studge on. We need to show that he can get the minutes with us, as he's got the quality, and the fact that he's willing to stay with us as backup is a luxury most teams don't have. Even coming on at 55 minutes, I'd still back him to get a brace.

11 Oct 2018 10:00:33
I see online that John Terry is being lined up as assistant manager of Aston Villa, playing at one stage second fiddle to Thierry Henry.

I’m currently watching the Italy v Ukraine game and see shevchenko in the managers box.

This coupled with the likes of Frank Lampard at Derby, Stevie G at Rangers, to me, it would appear a players professional career seems to exert a lot more influence than his managerial career.

To me, it would appear that lower league clubs are more interested in giving higher profile retired players managerial roles than actual managers with experience.

Agree1 Disagree1

11 Oct 2018 16:02:04
Well yes. But apart from pure technical ability, perhaps they were so good at the same because they understood it and its philosophies?

11 Oct 2018 20:49:40
I think a lot of it at lower levels, isn't just about the actual tactics and philosophy, but the ability to get the players to buy into it and perform them. If the players buy into it and try and it fails, then sure, the manager failed. But I'd imagine lesser known managers may have good tactics and philosophy but the players don't properly believe in them and don't completely take it on, and hence, that manager also fails.

The difference is with bringing in a household name and famous footballer is that they will have the presence and confidence already (and I hate to use the word, but also a bit of "swagger". That helps the players believe in it and do their best to adopt it.

They may have similar tactics and philosophies as the lesser known managers, but if their players don't 100% take it on board, they won't succeed.

11 Oct 2018 21:30:28
Fair point EP. Mind Games.

12 Oct 2018 13:43:46
I think all managers have to put up with certain variables that may be out of their control. A forward thinking and attack minded coach may not be able attract the required caliber of player to play they way they want, whereas a more defensively minded coach (Sam, Pulis, etc take your pick) may not have the same level of technical coaching ability, but can find more success due to it being inherently easier to find harder working, physical players that are less technically gifted. This brings another question - Which is the better coach? A technically gifted one that tries to play an attractive game but fails due to a lack of asset's or a less technically gifted one that accepts his limitations and gets the most out of what he has, even if that results in a boring style of play? There is no right or wrong answer for me, only preferences depending on the situation a club is in at any given time. Let not pretend that if LFC were bottom and shipping goals left right and center that we would also want a manager like Sam or Pulis.
For me, ex players becoming managers have an advantage over those that were not big names as players. I have no doubt Rangers would not have attracted some of the players they now have were it not for Gerrard, although as a manager he is an entirely unproven entity. They (Normally) instantly command a level of respect, and attract players of a certain caliber. From there management can be as simple as maintaining that initial positive momentum that is in place, which a lesser known name may never get, despite being more experienced or more tactically aware.

13 Oct 2018 12:46:10
In today’s game a manager, I think, lays out their strategy and motivates/ builds a team- and coaches coach

I did my uefa B with 4 pro footballers- one of whom is now an EPL manager.

His coaching was abysmal- but he had dramatically over-achieved with his current side.

It’s about getting the best out of your players- not necessarily the nuts and bolts coaching.

Hence why clubs opt for those that have been there and done it.

10 Oct 2018 16:56:29
Ed's is there any serious interest in Ramsey as maybe a replacement for gini? Would certainly get us more goals from midfield than we currently get or is his injury history offputting?
Thanks and great site always 👍.

Agree1 Disagree2

10 Oct 2018 19:55:28
And why exactly do you want to sell Wijnaldum over Milner and Henderson? Care to explain?

10 Oct 2018 22:25:39
Can’t believe even dickie is getting stick for asking a question lol 😂 😂😂😂.

11 Oct 2018 09:02:56
Because Harry, he's not as good as them two mate, everybody can see that. Hendo is just class and when he's fit he's consistently class, he was by far the best player on the pitch the other day but that's nothing new because he usually always puts in a top performance. Milner, well his form this season has been brilliant, he just seems to get better and better. Where as Wijnaldum, he frustrates me mate because he's shown he has the quality but how often does he put in a top performance? not a lot at all, he has one good game in 5, the rest of the time he just seems to go missing, it's almost as if we're playing with 10 men which is why it gets on my nerves because we know he does have the quality.

I'm not saying I'd prefer Ramsey over him because tbh I wouldn't but I'd certainly have someone like Keita on ahead of him or even Fabinho but they're still settling in so that may take time. I'm not moaning, I think the midfield overall is brilliant atm but I want to see Wijnaldum showing what he's capable of on a regular basis not when he feels like it.

11 Oct 2018 09:38:38
If Anything he would replace and outgoing Lallana, but in all seriousness I hope the rumours are not true, We have Gini, Hendo, Fabinho, Milly, Ox, Keita with Adam on the peripheral of the group what's the point in over buying for the same spot.

11 Oct 2018 11:56:07
Salah,

As much as I love you I disagree with your opinion. The midfield overall lacks quality. No other problem. Pure form of quality. The three has been at the club form some time and we are still targeting Central midfielders! Aren’t we? Ramsey the latest being linked. On the other hand we are happy with a kid at RB and LB.
So it’s plain and simple, the issue is in the middle.

On to the player. Wijnaldum is marginally better than Hendo. Both are not at the level required to boss a game. Wiji is technically sound. He has electric pace, strength and good feets.
He is lazy and just doesn’t care much on the pitch. That is where Henderson beats him.

11 Oct 2018 20:56:20
Gini better than Hendo? What are you smoking Harry?

I wouldn't replace Gini with Ramsey as they play completely different styles. Ramsey is an attacking midfielder and I'm sorry to say it, offers very little more. His tackling, tracking back and also defensive positioning are poor, but that's not what he's there for. As an attacking midfielder he can be absolutely brilliant.

One thing that you can't take away from Gini is his versatility. He played all out attacking midfield for Newcastle, a complete all rounder for Ajax and has played deep midfield and further forward for us. He's even played at the back and did well.

How can Ramsey possibly be a replacement for that?

12 Oct 2018 13:49:04
I agree with Harry in that the midfield lacks a creative quality to it, however I don't agree that Gini is better than Hendo or Milner. If all three were playing at their peak every game, yeah maybe. But it is Ginis willingness to hie from the ball and slowness in playing that winds me up. He is at his best when picking the ball up driving foward alying it off and getting into the box to recieve the ball again before shooting or setting up a team-mate. We do not see enough of this. Yes that may well be due his playing deeper recently, and defensively yes I see him as equal to Hendo and Milner. But the other two have more to them going foward. Hendo has better vision and passing range and Milner is probably the best midfielder we currently have in terms of trying to Ppass and move to recieve lay offs.

10 Oct 2018 10:24:30
Mia from home or in the stands, if you were not on the pitch to see what options were there for Hendo to pass to of if there were any spaces or angles to play passes in then trust me, your post lacks any form of nuance and critical thinking. BRover The game is all about winning and taking opportunities when they arise. The fact is that Henderson (on the pitch) must have seen the lay-out in front of him and should have acted on that - that is one of the 100,000 reasons that he is in the side. As I have said I don't think that he should be in the side. He is very good at passing a ball to a player who is five yards away and signalling o that player to pass the ball to a team-mate on the opposite side of the pitch - he is incapable of doing that himself and the number of passes he makes looks really good on his CV!
