Salah, all you need to do is log out in the top corner and sign back in as aoe. Can imagine its nightmare switching between two accounts though!

17 Aug 2018 12:32:54
I think we'd all love to sign Fekir. I know I would. The thing is Klopp probably needs more time to see where Keita's best position is. Maybe Keita will be the Coutinho replacement. Keita can play deeper but Klopp may want him in a position where he is more involved in the attack. The two of them could play together but we should probably off load Llana before signing Fekir. Not saying I know that much but food for thought.

Happy birthday enjoy your day.

Well Salah fever is well and truly upon us. It seems no matter which channel, which country, or what product, if football is part of a TV advert then one of Salah's goals is guaranteed to be on it. He's now an undisputed global superstar, in image at least.

With that in mind, are the club doing anything to utilise his new found stardom? From a commercial standpoint, I mean. I have no idea what or how, it just seems there are opportunities which, if angled correctly, could improve both his and Liverpool's image.

Agree0 Disagree3

He’s going to be the face of a new drive safe campaign.

17 Aug 2018 13:00:50
Maybe get him doing an advert for Carphone Warehouse, Bardzo!

17 Aug 2018 15:30:22
Yea should've seen it coming. Shouldn't be on his phone at the wheel at all, but it's nothing that will affect the international brand that he now is or could be. It's one thing for Europeans or South Americans to be football superstars, but he could be the first mega cash cow from a non traditional footballing background. An inspiration or idol to billions, a seemingly good guy and a Liverpool player. Just saying.

17 Aug 2018 16:41:59
Bardzo, despite my previous reply, I agree witb you mate.

19 Aug 2018 14:02:20
I'm sure it's being attended to mate. If Madrid think his demands are too much and can't see any commercial possibilities in him, then more fool them I say. We'll keep him and have the world follow Salah at Liverpool instead. Normally there would be a couple or three of teams or players highlighted at the start of a new season on adverts and publications, whereas this season there is only one name and no, it's not the club. I just hope there is enough cause for it to be the same at beginning of next season too.

Was just wondering what do u make of the perceived abuse/ bad treatment that Sterling receives from the media and supporters. Do you think its justified?
I wouldn't be his biggest fan but his performances last season were decent and he finished up with a good goal tally.
I see Ian Wright has chirped in with his opinion, claiming its a race issue. Curious to know what ye fellow reds make of our former winger.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2018 00:48:45
I suppose the media and fan berating of Rooney was a race issue too? Just because people might not be keen on the chap doesn't mean it has to be anything to do with the colour of his skin. Good player with more potential than he has shown and I guess with his stats that's saying something. Acts a bit too cool for school.

{Ed0333's Note - I actually listened to the radio programme Ian Wright made the claim about sterling that people had a bias against him and the other panelists (Sutton & Andy something) and the presenter had no clue of how to react to such accusations. I’m not saying Wright’s incorrect but he talks so much bunkum that when he does say something of merit it’s lost in between the stuff he spouts.

17 Aug 2018 10:23:16
I had no idea what Wright was going on about.

He gets stick because he's scored 38 goals in 98 appearances for Man City and before that 18 in 95 for Liverpool.

He has played 44 times for England and scored 2.

That's why he gets stick - nothing to do with the colour of his skin.

17 Aug 2018 13:03:47
He’s been dreadful for England so he’s going to get some grief for that.
The spotlight is always well and truly on the England team in the run up to the World Cup as well, this year there wasn’t much for the press to talk about, then Stirling rocked up with a rifle tattoo, so he’s going to be the one they slag off.

18 Aug 2018 03:47:59
That's a lot of goals over that period for someone who has barely left his teenage years. Wonder what other kids his age have racked up?

{Ed001's Note - I can't believe some people are so ignorant as to think it is because of the goals he scored that he gets stick. It is clear there is an agenda against him, you only have to look at the treatment of the likes of Wilshere and Rooney in comparison. Those two do some terrible things and the papers do the odd story and no more. Sterling has a bloody tattoo and it is turned into a personal attack. They make up lies about him etc. It is clear that there is some thing there that is nothing to do with his on field play and the only conclusion, sadly, that makes any sense is that it is because of the colour of his skin. It is certainly not his goal record, that suggestion deserves nothing but contempt.}

19 Aug 2018 09:41:23
Just playing devil's advocate Ed.

Why is it that.

Dele Alli, Jesse Linegard, Kyle Walker, Marcus Rashford, Danny Rose, Chris Smalling, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabian Delph and Danny Welbeck from the recent England world cup squad. Not so far back players such as Daniel Sturridge, Nathaniel Clyne, Theo Walcott, Jermain Defoe. I could keep adding to the list but you get the idea.

. don't get the abuse from fans, the made up stuff in the papers and the over reactions. For me there is one other conclusion, that he may be or has been a bit of a knob! Whether that is how he used to be and he has turned over a new leaf, I wouldn't know but we all know first impressions last. I think he's probably a bit shy, just been a normal young kid and has been badly advised. I not saying that I know the guy, but he doesn't always endear himself to the fans.

Sometimes the press have their targets and just go for them. Graham Taylor as an example. I'm not convinced that race is the issue here. Of course I'm really hoping it isn't.

Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - because most of them haven't got huge money moves to a big club on ridiculous salaries, other than Sturridge, who gets all sorts of crap thrown his way with no basis other than made up crap in the papers about him being soft. You can't go after Studger with anything other than that as he is a well behaved lad off the pitch who doesn't drink. However he gets it in the neck constantly over that. While Alli got a move, it was not for a huge sum of money on an insane amount of money.}

19 Aug 2018 14:03:22
Sorry, I've got to disagree. There are several factors it could be. Saying the colour of his skin is the only one that makes sense ignores other things and is quite dangerous. Surely rule out the rest before heading for the worst thing it could be. I'm not really a fan of his and I wouldn't know how to be racist if I tried.

His lack of obvious success for England is one thing. Not just the goals, but the whole lot. When he can perform like he did against Arsenal on Sunday then can't do anything of particular use in an England shirt, it irritates people. Rightly or wrongly, that's clear.

His attitude seems off. Not necessarily on the pitch, but in interviews and things like that he comes across as arrogant, dumb, self serving and like he doesn't care (This is my perception, again right or wrong its what I see) . No footballer really wants to do interviews, he just comes over as too good to do interviews.

The transfer to Man City and the coverage of his agents antics ticked a lot of people off, and not just Liverpool fans. The greedy teenage footballer role was exemplified here. Maybe people don't like British or, more likely, English players doing that, either way, it didn't go down well.

If you add it all together, along with silly tattoo's (which I don't give a monkey's about) then there is a person which certainly I don't really root for.

Also, what of other black players? If there was an agenda, wouldn't they all be as unpopular as him?

I also remember Rooney being to blame for most tournaments and him being constantly in papers having done this or that or not living up to what everyone was told he would be. That may be clouded, but I certainly don't think he is a popular figure at all.

If it is racial, then shame on whoever drives it and persists with that line of thought. I don't like Lewis Hamilton either but some people just rub other people up the wrong way. The colour of his skin is only be a coincidence.

20 Aug 2018 19:58:23
Bit of a silly statement to say the occasional story on rooney?! The press tried to ruin him on numerous occasions. He gets grief because he's just not very likable. Simple. He was shocking 4 England at the world cup. I don't condone the abuse but to say it's race related is foolish and on this occasion you ate quite simply incorrect.

20 Aug 2018 23:03:10
There are lots of reasons to dislike Sterling in my opinion and none of them relate to the colour of his skin. My opinion is that he’s an irresponsible, arrogant, self-centred fool but the same could be said for lots of footballers.
I also think he is massively over rated as a footballer and I even thought that when he was a red.

16 Aug 2018 21:22:14
Hi eds, I see bobby madley has suddenly retired and apparently it's related to a video on social media. Any idea eds or posters?

Agree0 Disagree1

16 Aug 2018 23:24:00
Was anyone else shocked that he is only 32? I always thought he was easily in his mid 40's.

17 Aug 2018 07:06:19
Yes mrboot, that is kind of shocking, makes me feel much better about my age now looking at him, he looks older then me and is a lot younger, get in! I guess the counting backwards every year really does work!

R / Ed's
Help out an old Luddite, will you?
My beloved MacBook is no more, so it's ip time from now on.
How do you get good football streaming on it please?
Answers in understandable olde English would be appreciated lol.

{Ed007's Note - Go here:

www.hesgoal.com/

And you'll get a list of any game you want, there'll be a wee red 'x' on the screen, click on that to close the ad and it's just like a youtube video to go full screen etc. I know for definite that site works on PC, Android and some of my mate's smarttvs.
Any other trouble give me a shout on here or on the live chat, I'm usually lurking about on them.}

16 Aug 2018 13:14:37
Alright Ed007, hows life?
I used that streaming site last night on the laptop to watch the second half of the Super Cup and it was spot on, ta.
I’ll give it a go on this thing at the weekend and come back to you when - sorry, if - there’s any problems 😃
Cheers.
I meant to say this is an iPad.

{Ed007's Note - No worries, we'll get you sorted out 👍

16 Aug 2018 13:40:45
Got to admit, hesgoal is my website of choice, always seems the most reliable stream, even works when the kids are watching netflix on my slow-ass broadband!

16 Aug 2018 18:08:39
Hesgoal is working on the old iPad.
Champion that Ed007, thanks very much.

{Ed007's Note - Brilliant, I'm glad I could help you buddy 👍

16 Aug 2018 00:39:28
Really hope De bruyne makes a speedy recovery. Never nice to see a player get an injury and the whole league will miss watching a quality player perform.

Agree16 Disagree0

16 Aug 2018 02:07:53
Nice of you to say. I hope city drop points though while he’s gone, just saying 🤞🏼.

16 Aug 2018 07:33:55
Agreed Cod, well said mate. Some people will be happy to hear he is injured, that's not on, I wouldn't wish an injury on any player but I, like mikey of course hope they drop points without him, he's a big loss.

Had him in my fantasy football team, good job 1 free transfer isn't it lol.

16 Aug 2018 14:33:39
I think it would be crazy not to have put kdb and salah in anyone's fantasy team also kane if there is enough money haha.

14 Aug 2018 21:49:07
I reiterate what I say about Brendan Rodgers the man is a spoofer!

Agree6 Disagree4

15 Aug 2018 12:17:00
He’s living up to expectations.
Celtic will not do anything in Europe because they don’t play enough competitive football.
The SPL needs a revolution because their current set up is just not competitive.

15 Aug 2018 17:01:21
Celtic and rangers should have been taken into the english leagues a long time ago.

15 Aug 2018 17:33:28
They can't / won't accept the Old Firm into the English league system, but perhaps there's a case for a collective English / Scottish football television deal?
I don't know what the answer is, other than a European-type league which may benefit Rangers and Celtic but will cast adrift the rest of the Scots teams.
From a Liverpool point of view, I'd hate to see a European league too.

There was an interesting article online (Give me Sport) about the monetisation of football and how clubs that were once European power houses like the Old Firm, Ajax, Anderlect, Red Star etc have been left behind.

Maybe UEFA should re-introduce the old format for the UEFA Cup and get much more sponsorship in so that its financial rewards are on a par with its prestige.

It would have been great to have had Celtic in the CL Group stages, awesome support and especially if one of the English teams were in their group.

15 Aug 2018 21:01:42
Im pretty sure anything can happen if enough money was involved.

I could be wrong but there was a lot of talk about it about 10 years ago maybe less.

From what i remember it was heavily backed by broadcasters. Could be wrong though.

Celtic and rangers would be a goldmine for tv companies.

Take one in each year into league two. Each year offer the promoted teams to league two a chance to not take the promotion and take a heavy compensation fee. One will bite eventually.

There are non english teams playing in the english leagues so its not a case of we can't cause its english only folks.

Both teams would make their way to the premership at some point or another. It would certainly make for some massive games in the premership.

Im not saying its a simple as just let it happen. There would certainly be massive objections from a lot of teams in the lower leagues for various reasons i guess but i personally would like to see both in the english league.

I also think they should let all scottish teams into the fa cup every year as well.

Awww, Celtic for Nabil Fekir's sake.
