Good evening Ed's,

Hope you are all well.

I have a friend who is an avid Fulham supporter and he is adamant that Liverpool have made contact over the return of Babel and the Babelcopter this summer.

I don't see it myself but in a support role to the front 3 stranger things have happened.

I just wondered if you lot had heard anything before I ask him "what is he smoking over there".


{Ed025's Note - strange one that carra, nothing this end on that one mate..

1.) 27 Apr 2019 19:15:09
Thanks Ed. I thought as much.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

2.) 27 Apr 2019 21:32:14
Not that I know any better but that sounds like absolute nonsense to me.

3.) 28 Apr 2019 06:43:50
Not that I expect it to be true but fair play to the lad he’s put in some decent performances for Fulham since he joined them, far better than I was expecting. Sure another prem club will look to take him.

4.) 28 Apr 2019 11:12:28
Perhaps he’s being bought in to fly the Babelcoptor in the summer.

5.) 28 Apr 2019 16:57:27
Loan update?



19 Mar 2019 14:39:20
Good Afternoon Eds,

There are reports linking Liverpool with Pascal Gross and I was wondering if there was any truth to them?

I live in Brighton and in my opinion he is one of a few stand out players in what is a pretty average Brighton side.

His Goal and assist ratio has been pretty decent throughout his career and I am sure his numbers would be higher if Brighton were not such a defensive team. Although I am not convinced he is at Liverpools level just now.


{Ed002's Note - This was from a few months ago and I am pretty sure Liverpool has not made any approach to Brighton for Gross. I suspect it is the same story being repeated.}

1.) 19 Mar 2019 15:47:49
Thanks Ed.

2.) 19 Mar 2019 20:09:43
That required me to re-read the OP

Initially, one awful moment, it read:

“There are reports linking Liverpool with CHRISTIAN Gross”

And breathe.

3.) 19 Mar 2019 22:59:20
Another fellow brightonian LFC supporter here!
Not sure he has shown enough to make the jump to a side like ours Carra.



27 Feb 2019 19:25:13
After a short quiet spell the Liverpool Loanees were back to their best at the weekend, much like we are hoping the RedMen are tonight!

Danny Ings continues to miss out through injury and Southampton will be desperate to have him back as soon as possible as they sit in the bottom 3 of the Premier League.

Adam Bogdan and Sheyi Ojo were both unused at the weekend. Meanwhile Pedro Chirivella's loan spell at Extremadura ended before it had even begun as registration problems have left the Spaniard unable to play.

Awoniyi is back at Mouscron and back to his best as his red hot streak in-front of goal continues.

In his 6th game for the club Awoniyi notched his 5th goal, a second half strike that sealed a 1-0 victory against Lokeren.

Since his return Awoniyi has scored 5 goals including 3 match winners. He has also notched 2 assists. Jurgen Klopp are you watching.

Ejaria was back in the Reading starting line up this weekend after recovering from illness as The Royals faced Rotherham in the Sky Bet Championship.

And it was a dream return for the youngster as he hit a sweet half volley to put Reading 1-0 up. Unfortunately the Royals could not hold onto the lead as the game finished 1-1 but it was good to see Ejaria back to his best after a frustrating campaign.

Rangers played twice last week. The first was a 5-0 victory over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup. The second was a 5-0 victory over Hamilton in the league.

Ryan Kent was central to these victories playing both games and notching 2 assists in the process.

Since the season restarted after the Winter Break Kent has notched 4 assists and 2 goals as he looks to finish the season on a high.

Allan Rodrigues made his first appearance for Fluminense this weekend as he looks to kick start his season after a difficult start.

The midfielder made his first bow for the club coming on as a second half sub as Fluminense beat Bangu 2-0.

Hertha Berlin faced Bayern Munch this weekend with Grujic looking to make his mark against Liverpool's Champions League opponents.

Despite a lively display in midfield Grujic was unable to prevent Hertha falling to a narrow 1-0 defeat. He will be hoping his parent club will fare better at the Allianz Arena in a few weeks time.

Grabara conceded his first goals for AGF a the weekend and with those goals came his first defeat as AGF lost 2-1 to Midtjylland.

Clyne continued his impressive form for Bournemouth at Right Back as he made his fifth appearance for the club at the weekend.

Bournemouth faced Wolves in the Premier League and Clyne produced a typically solid display as the game finished 1-1.

The ever present Herbie Kane made his 38th appearance of the season at the weekend for Doncaster as the Dons faced Scunthorpe in a local derby.

Kane produced a solid performance and played the full 90 as the game finished 1-1.

Young Liam Millars wait for a start continued this weekend as yet again he found himself warming the bench for Kilmarnock.

He did however get a late run out as Kilmarnock lost 1-0 to Livingstone.

There were two reds in action on Monday night as Wilson's Derby faced Nottingham Forest in the East Midlands Derby.

Karius was also in action for Besiktas as they faced Fenerbace in the Istanbul Derby.

Unfortunately it was a frustrating evening for both as Wilson put in an ineffective performance, got booked and finally subbed in the 70th minute as Derby lost to Forest 1-0.

Meanwhile Fenerbache pulled off an 'Istanbul Moment' in Istanbul as they come from 3-0 down at half time to eventually draw 3-3 with Besiktas leaving Karius and his team mates extremely frustrated.

And that's your lot :)


1.) 28 Feb 2019 05:34:53
I appreciate your work carragold, but it wouldn't be remiss for you to cite thisisanfield. com, which is surely your source for these updates. Thanks!

2.) 28 Feb 2019 06:28:43
Cheers carra.

3.) 28 Feb 2019 09:14:40
Carra, fantastic update as ever. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter whether Professor Klopp is keeping an eye on Awoniyi, the player is as far away from a work permit as the day he arrived.

Neither Awoniyi, Allan Rodrigues or Arroyo will ever play for our club as a few minutes on the Gov. UK website will confirm. Sad but true.

4.) 28 Feb 2019 11:02:56
Apparently Clyne scored a couple of crackers the weekend we played Bournemouth.

5.) 28 Feb 2019 13:18:02
Big love dude thanks x.

6.) 01 Mar 2019 09:23:29
Hi Ed’s in terms of Danny Ings as Carra points out he Misses’s out again through injury, what sort of impacts would his injuries have on his deal going through in the summer. Obviously when for he walks into their team but did they have any sort of clause put in where he has to be available for a certain percentage of games of anything for them to have to purchase Ings or are they able to pull out of the deal?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - They have a commitment to buy, but obviously if there is a major issue it can be reviewed.}

7.) 03 Mar 2019 09:56:24
Thanks carra 😘

Reading won 1-2 btw 😉.



14 Feb 2019 10:46:22
The Liverpool main team may have jetted off to sunny Marbella but for the loanees there was business to attend to.

It was a fairly quiet weekend for many of the loanees as Ings and Ejaria missed out through injury; Clyne was ineligible to play against his parent club whilst Chirivella, Ojo, Arroyo, Bogdan and Allan were all unused.

Football is a funny game and Awoniyi was the last man laughing as his current side Mouscron faced his former employer Gent at the weekend.

With 3 goals in 22 appearances (many from the bench) Awoniyi left his loan spell with Gent early and returned to Mouscron where he had great success last season.

Awoniyi has been all action since his return and his form continued on Saturday as he scored Mouscron's opener in a hard fought 2-1 victory.

That is now 4 wins in 4 since Awoniyi returned with the young striker netting 3 goals in that time.

Marko Grujic's fine form in the Bundesliga continued at the weekend as the young Serbian notched his first assist of the season in a 3-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.

It was yet another all action performance from the young Serb who in recent weeks has been compared to Xabi Alonso in the way he dictates the game! High praise indeed for the promising youngster.

Two reds came head to head this weekend as Ryan Kents Rangers faced Liam Millars Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup 5th round.

It was not the most exciting of matches with the game finishing 0-0 meaning a replay at Ibrox will be played soon.

Kent started on the left and played the full 90 for Rangers whilst Millar came off the bench to see out the closing stages.

Kamil Grabara got his first taste of competitive action for his new club at the weekend as his team AGF faced fourth placed Esbjerg in the Danish Superliga.

And it was the perfect start for the young keeper who managed to keep a clean sheet in a lively performance as AGF ran out eventual 2-0 winners.

Lloris Karius was obviously spurned on by the performance of Grabara as he too went on to keep a clean sheet as Besiktas comfortably beat Bursaspor 2-0. (Anything you can do, I can do etc etc. )

Harry Wilson (spurned on by the fact he won Derbys goal of the month for the FIFTH month in a row) faced his former employer Hull City at the weekend.

There were no goals or assists for Wilson this weekend but he did put in a lively display as Derby ran out eventual 2-0 winners.

And last but by no means least the ever present Herbie Kane was at the heart of things for Doncaster as they fought back from 1-0 down to beat promotion chasing Peterborough Utd 3-1.

And that's your lot.


1.) 14 Feb 2019 10:59:50
Cheers carra much appreciated YNWA.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 11:07:57
Cheers for the update Carra. Glad to see Grujic playing consistently well though id say that ship has sailed for us. I hope wilson is given a chance next season.

3.) 14 Feb 2019 11:31:45
I believe Kane got a goal and an assist!

4.) 14 Feb 2019 11:54:42
Thanks for the update. Good to hear Grujic doing very well. Id like to see him succeed at Liverpool if a space opens up.

5.) 14 Feb 2019 16:20:06
Thank you very much.

6.) 14 Feb 2019 17:38:30
The southern red, Kane got a goal an assist in the midweek game against Southend. He was again all action and received a standing ovation from the supporters. Question for one of the eds, is there any chance Donny could retain Kane's services next term or will l'pool look to give him a chance next season?

{Ed001's Note - I doubt he is anywhere near a chance for Liverpool yet.}

7.) 15 Feb 2019 01:38:04
Thanks carra.

8.) 15 Feb 2019 10:18:00
What will be the plans for Herbie Kane next season Ed001? Doncaster is local to me and all the people I know rave about how he's been playing. Obviously he needs to prove it at a higher level first before first team thoughts arrive.

{Ed001's Note - probably loan again.}



23 Jan 2019 12:31:55
With 14 Reds currently out on Loan 12 of them had competitive fixtures with only Kamil Grabara missing out as AGF Aarhus do not restart competitively until next Monday and Ryan Kent's Rangers had their match Suspended.

Of the 12 loanees with games to play Herbie Kane missed out through injury as did Allan Rodrigues.

It was the dream return for Taiwo Awoniyi who has returned to Mouscron on loan where he was so successful last season.

Coming off the bench with the game level at 1-1 it took Awoniyi just 4 minutes to make an impact as he rifled home a late winner.

Lets hope this goal is the first of many as the young striker looks to make up for lost time after a frustrating first half of the season.

Two Reds were in action at Pride Park as Harry Wilson's Derby played host to Ovie Ejaria's Reading. Both Reds played the full 90 in what was a lively encounter but it was Wilson who came out on top.

Assisting one and scoring the other Wilson put Derby into a commanding lead at the half time interval and although Reading pulled one back to which Ejaria can claim his first Royals assist it was not enough as Derby took the points in a 2-1 victory.

Wilson was named MOTM.

Danny Ings made a winning return to the Saints line up after missing 3 games through injury. Although the striker did not score himself his lively display contributed to what was a hard fought 2-1 victory over Everton which saw Ralph Hasenhuttl's men rise to 15th in the table.

Nathaniel Clyne has settled into life at Bournemouth seamlessly starting the last 3 fixtures for the Cherries. At the weekend however he tasted his first victory for the club and got the added bonus of a clean sheet as Bournemouth beat West Ham 2-0.

Adam Bogdan and Hibs made a solid start to 2019 with a 4-0 Scottish Cup victory over Elgin City. Bogdan was able to keep a clean sheet on the day and truth be told he could of had a nap as Elgin city gave him very little to worry about.

It was good news for Hertha Berlin as the winter break allowed Marko Grujic to get back to full fitness after an injury lay off. The Young Serbian played for an hour and was instrumental in their 3-1 victory over Nurnberg.

Berlin coach Pal Dardai was yet again full of praise for Grujic describing him as a 'Top Shelf Player" and the "Best midfielder the club has had for 20 years"!

Lloris Karius started 2019 with a win and a good performance as Besiktas beat Akhisarspor 3-1 in an end to end game.

Karius produced a solid performance with several smart saves which helped his team cement the victory.

Sheyi Ojo had a late run out as Reims drew 1-1 with OGC Nice.

And that's your lot.


1.) 23 Jan 2019 12:45:48
Thank you for all the effort you make in these round ups all the best.

2.) 23 Jan 2019 12:55:09
Thanks a lot Carra much appreciated.

Posters on here commented that Wilson doesn't seem to get involved in the general build up as much as he should. I have watched him quite a few times recently and think it is more that he is making movements and taking up great positions but his team mates aren't at his level. I am excited to see him in pre season with better players.

3.) 23 Jan 2019 13:10:26
Always grateful for the update Carra. Keep up the good work!

4.) 23 Jan 2019 13:25:46
Don't think ojo is gaining much from his loan. Probably needs to join a lower championship club in the summer and get regular minutes so he can start building his career back up.

5.) 23 Jan 2019 21:30:43
Thanks mate! Interesting Grujic comments.

6.) 24 Jan 2019 06:17:58
Cheera carra!

7.) 24 Jan 2019 13:34:55
Been a long time Carra 🤨

Thanks as always 😘.

Couldn't sleep so ended up watching the second half of Brazil v Argentina.

Brazil have just won 2-0 with bobby scoring one and getting an assist for the other.
This puts him as the joint top scorer in the tournament and he is also tied for most assists.

Allison kept another clean sheet which means he has now won the golden glove even if he concedes in the final.

He is the first player to hold the golden glove for 3 major tournaments at the same time (prem, champs league and copa) .

Success breeds success so hopefully the boys win the final on Sunday.

And the best part is Brazil are achieving all this without the overrated Neymar ????.


1.) 03 Jul 2019 05:23:44
Is nancy neymar injured?

2.) 03 Jul 2019 05:36:52
Got injured in the build up to the tournament and is out for a few months I think.

3.) 03 Jul 2019 07:27:54
Good. I know its a bit out of order but i can't stand the guy. I don't understand these teams who are run by their so called best player. Neymar picks the team. In the world cup he wanted jesus to start over bobby. Didn't score a single goal. Firmino was brought on a few times and scored goals, was involved in their ticky tacky football that created chances.

Messi is the same at Barcelona and Argentina. Why bother with a manager? Its ridiculous.

Id love two of our best players to come back with ANOTHER massive medal. Confidence through the roof.

Its amazing the way klopp improves players. Even Becker! A goalie. He is a better keeper than he was this time last year. We're going to win the league, i can feel it in my bones.

{Ed025's Note - where have i heard that before? and salah need to set up house together...and adopt a unicorn.. :)

4.) 03 Jul 2019 08:00:57
'We're going to win the league' You beat me to it this year Robbie but I'm with you mate lol :) .

5.) 03 Jul 2019 08:27:56
Bit early for all that we haven't even kicked a ball yet, take each day as it comes let's not create pressure before the league has even started, teams are spending big amounts too compete if they get it right any of top 6 could do damage.

6.) 03 Jul 2019 09:21:01
3rd of July and there's rubbish being spouted about next seasons league already. Unbelievable.

7.) 03 Jul 2019 10:41:08
Hahaha believe!

8.) 03 Jul 2019 11:49:44
Of course there's speculation about next season irish. Its only a few weeks away now. And having won the European Cup we should be looking at winning the league again. Klopp is fantastic, i love watching our football. Its so exciting. We have the quality and heart to beat any team, any time.

I did there'd be a big signing or two. Liverpool do sign players on deadline day - Aoc. But on the other hand, why tinker with such a brilliant team?

9.) 03 Jul 2019 09:00:29
Must have heard it when England wom the world cup ed!

{Ed025's Note - you probably did liverbird, but england have actually won the world cup whereas liverpool have not actually won the prem...thats the difference mate.. :)

10.) 03 Jul 2019 09:21:48
Yeah yeah ed025. But THIS time its different. We genuinely have a team capable of winning the league. 97 points. That is pretty amazing. Unbelievable that it wasn't enough to win the league though. Fair play to city, they done us at the etihad and that was the difference. And pep knew it, that's why they were so defensive at anfield. He knew it would go to the wire.

Hope you're well ed025, have the blues made any big signings? Secured gomes, who's the holding player in your team? I like siggurdson, was a good signing for you lot, i thought he would be a Barcelona target or a Man Utd target, still to see the best of him but he doesn't seem to be improving.

{Ed025's Note - no big signings for us yet robbie but we will be dabbling in the market thats for sure mate, just one were miles the better team at anfield mate and could and should have won by a wide margin..



09 May 2019 12:45:58
I work with 2 spurs fans and a city fan. These next few weeks could be amazing for me or end in absolute torture.


1.) 09 May 2019 13:23:16
We’re competing on both fronts mate, even if we lose them both it’s still awesome to be in the running with the prospect of future successes. For the first time in decades I feel we have a team that should compete for years.

2.) 09 May 2019 13:58:57

And as long as we win 1 of the 2 then I should be ok :)

There is also a Utd fan in the office but he is no longer aloud to join in with any banter. We were thinking of getting a Burnley fan in so he has someone to talk to.

3.) 09 May 2019 14:12:14
aoe how can it be awesome if we lose both? I just don't get that we have to win cl, there can be no excuses.

4.) 09 May 2019 15:02:29
Do your spurs fans think they’re a bigger club than us? Mine do! Hopefully we can prove them wrong.

5.) 09 May 2019 15:08:49
I work with a Spurs fan who has a birthday on June 1.

6.) 09 May 2019 15:18:38
@lerchy to be fair to them they are not to bad but if they win they will think they are the best ever.

The mindset of the fans is different I think. Us Pool fans are now in a state of mind where we 'Have to Win' Whereas Spurs are just happy to make it that far 'like us last year'.

These mindsets are an example of where the two clubs currently are and I think it will give us an edge going into the final

@stone hopefully he has a terrible birthday :)

7.) 09 May 2019 15:31:57
We have the experience carra so hopefully that sees us through, we definitely shouldn’t underestimate them that’s for sure.

Nice to see you around too mate, I ain’t seen you do you’re loan reports in a while I thought they were excellent and always looked forward to them.

8.) 09 May 2019 16:06:31
lerchy - they're confusing 'stadium' for 'club'.

I live in London and you see more Liverpool fans than Spurs around here.

9.) 09 May 2019 16:12:40
I didn’t actually say it would be awesome to lose both mark. I was pointing out that it’s awesome we are competing in both competitions. My point was in reply to carra’s post of what would happen in the event that we lost both.

10.) 09 May 2019 16:22:02
@lerchy - i've been stupidly busy with work, traveling a lot etc etc and time just got away from me. Im more settled again now but its the end of the season.
As long as life remains settled i will try to start them up again next season.

11.) 09 May 2019 16:25:35
😂 I live down south too mate I know exactly what you mean!

One of my good friends seems to think the bale/ Maicon incident makes spurs a bigger and better club than us, bearing in mind I haven’t seen Spurs lift and meaningful trophy’s in my time. Bless his deluded socks.

12.) 09 May 2019 16:41:18
I think they’re about to get a terrible land when Pochettino leaves. Wonder will it be this season after a hopefully disappointing end.

13.) 09 May 2019 16:52:14
ok aoe no worries. It is great to be in the final again but this one we have to win.

14.) 09 May 2019 20:53:44
I think the fact that even Poch said ‘it’s a miracle to get to a champions league final with this club’ tells you that even their current manager knows where they really are in the pecking order.



27 Feb 2019 14:21:44
Hi Eds,

I sent you the loan update last week and this week however it does not appear that either one got posted?

I just wanted to check that my messages are coming through?


{Ed033's Note - the loan update you submitted today is on the rumour page. The last loan update that we received was on 14 Feb.

1.) 28 Feb 2019 03:50:19
carra i think it is better to be on rumours page, especially out of transfer window. your updates deserve to be on the main page longer, it will be drowned imo if its on the banter page. appreciate the updates my man.

2.) 28 Feb 2019 04:09:24
Agreed zed, thanks carra.



31 Jan 2019 08:30:13
I think playing away to West Ham will actually do us some good.
You could feel the anxiety in the ground last night, you won't get that away from home.
+ as the home side West Ham will need to attack more than Leicester did which will leave us space to play in.

Leicester are a counter attacking team. Last night due to sickness/ injuries we played with no DM and a very attack minded front 6. It left us open for Leicester to counter which added to the nerves and didn't give us game control.
At 1-0 up in the first half the game was end to end when it didn't need to be. Hendo or fab in the middle would of slowed the pace down and kept us sensibly in control. We would of seen the half out for the final minute instead of getting caught on the counter and giving a way a stupid foul which lead to a goal.

Milner and Fabinho will be back for the West Ham game so I expect Hendo and fab in the middle so we control things

Just my thoughts.


1.) 31 Jan 2019 13:00:34
Good read carra, I actually disagree though.

Arnautovic now has something to prove
West Ham always raise their game against the big teams
We are not playing with any fluency or confidence at the minute.
This feels like a potential banana skin to me 😕.

2.) 31 Jan 2019 13:14:56
100% - it is not an easy game.

West Ham away is always a tricky game I just think you will get a more natural performance from our boys unlike the anxious rushed performance we saw last night.

3.) 31 Jan 2019 18:18:52
Upton Park used to be a hard place to go. 30.000 mental psychos right next to the pitch. The London stadium has made it an easier fixture.

As for arnautovic, vvd is designed to deal with his type. I'm not worried. Actually think they could be in for a thumping. We e haven't had a 5 0 for a while.

4.) 31 Jan 2019 18:19:53
Ron I believe Arnautovic is injured. Regardless I fully expect us to beat them.

5.) 31 Jan 2019 18:33:21
I know it's often said but there will be no easy games in the run in. Like Leicester last night they are a good side. Crystal palace at the start of the season I thought these are a decent side and at Anfield they proved they are no mugs. Teams aren't going to roll over and give us the points, we need to fight for every one. We won't win every game and I doubt city will go unbeaten, lots of twists and turns to come. Don't know if my finger nails can handle it. Come on red men.

6.) 31 Jan 2019 18:47:07
Ron is arnautovic even going to be fit to play against us didn't look good for him last night going of mind?

7.) 31 Jan 2019 19:40:02
Ron, Not fussed with Arnautovic cos he is inconsistent and seems to pick the games he wants to actually play and do well in. WH have been receiving thumpings of late and Pello does not park the bus cos well, he is simply NOT good at it and if he does then we will have to deal with it. We are not playing with fluency cos we have our midfielders playing at CB and RB cos half the defence is injured. Not being fluent is normal under such circumstances, mind you YET we are able to rise above these issues and pick up points which at this stage, is the MOST important thing. In fact, I see that as a quality cos the ability to rise above such issues shows the mental make up of this team, something City simply are unable to do at this time even tho they have NO injuries.

{Ed025's Note - you need to stop having a pop at city redwolf and concentrate on liverpool my old mate..

8.) 31 Jan 2019 21:27:51
Ed25, what's your beef? I spoke the truth to power about City. The truth should never be an insult, man. Believe that! Cheers, mate.

{Ed025's Note - i just think your better than having cheap shots at citys expense redwolf, liverpool are doing very nicely and that should be the priority of all the posters imo rather than worry about how other teams are doing..thats all im saying my friend..

9.) 31 Jan 2019 23:02:19
I agree Carra. As soon as Fab came on I thought we had control of the game, up to that point we were vulnerable. He should start every game when fit. I also think it is no coincidence that we look shakier at the back since Matip has been playing he does everything so slowly. TAA Gomez and as well as Milner back shortly will strenghten us. Also for me Shaqiri and keita should not start together it is one or the other. IMO it is a waste of time bringing on Sturridge I would much rather Origi for the last ten minutes.



19 Dec 2018 12:27:57
It was not the busiest of weeks for the Reds on loan to which I can only assume they were allowed time off to complete their Christmas Shopping.

A season high 10 loanees did not feature this weekend with Grujic, Allan, Kent and Randall all missing out through injury whilst Woodburn, Bogdan, Whelan and George were not selected for their games.

Anderson Arroyo who is currently playing his trade with Gent U21's did not feature this weekend as they did not have a game to be played.

The 10th Red not to feature was Ovie Ejaria who has had his loan spell with Rangers terminated early. Ejaria scored twice and featured 28 times for the Gers but in recent months his game time has reduced considerably after a promising start to the season.

Harry Wilson was in action on Monday Night as Derby faced Nottingham Forest in a Play-off spot clash. However despite the pre game hype the match did not live up to its billing and fizzled out to an eventual 0-0 draw.

Derby currently sit 6th in a play off position and are currently 6 points adrift of the automatic promotion spots.

Back from injury and back with a bang! Danny Ings returned for Southampton this weekend and provided the spark they desperately needed as they look to claw their way out of the Premier League drop zone.

Nobody gave Southampton a chance this weekend as they played host to Arsenal who were on a 22 game unbeaten streak.

But football is a funny game and Southampton clearly had not read the pre match script as they twice took the lead through Ings on the side of each half. As the game looked like it was heading for a draw Saints scored a late winner with 5 minutes remaining to eventually win the game 3-2.

Move over Harry as the real Kane scores again!

Young midfielder Herbie Kane netted his 6th goal in 7 games as Doncaster cruised to a 3-0 win over Scunthorpe in League one.

Kane scored his sides second goal of the game winning back possession deep in the opposition half before producing a tidy lob over the Scunthorpe keeper.

Kane produced another all action display that lead to him being awarded MOTM.

Karius had a busy time in goal as Besiktas played host to Trabzonspor in what was a lively affair.

It was end to end traffic for most of the match with the game eventually finishing 2-2.

Awoniyi was again a late sub introduced with 10 minutes to go as Gent were trailing 2-0 to Charleroi.

Awoniyi's introduction did not have the desired effect and the game finished 2-0.

Ojo was used to run the clock down as he came on in stoppage time as his side Stade de Reims beat Strasbourg 2-1.

And that's your lot :)

Cheers mate.

has Kane really gotten 6 in his last 7! I couldn’t quite believe that stat so I checked online and it says he only has 5 in 25 appearances this season. Not doubting you Carra mate but just wanting to make sure it’s 6 in his last 7 because that’s very very impressive.

His last goal was not added. He had a really slow start after wich he can't stop scoring. I would say its luck that strikes him, but I may be mistaken.

Thanks Carra mate.

Your sign off reminds me of a time at Uni when I accidentally misordered onions. I thought I'd ordered a bag, but had actually ordered a tonne!

I was wondering where I was going to sleep that night as the onions were filling the whole house!

I was so pleased to hear the delivery driver say -

That shallot!

Matip was on the bench V Brighton so he could well be back in the starting 11 for the Palace match.

To be honest Ed I found my way very quickly and a bit by fluke if anything.
I follow various Liverpool sites on Twitter and every now and again these sites will advertise for new writers.
On two occasions I replied to adverts and sent over a piece they might like, luckily in both instances they did.
For a while I then wrote weekly pieces for each site for free but after a while I negotiated a small % based on how many clicks the article gets.

And you don't need to thank me for contributing to the site I enjoy it and I am looking forward to finally getting to meet some of you at the next Charity match. As long as I don't get injured again.


{Ed001's Note - even if you are injured you should still go along and cheer on my team to victory.....

As for the rest, cheers mate, just thinking it might help some of these on here looking to get into it. I mean they can write articles for us for free to establish themselves, but the idea is it is just to give them somewhere to show they have published work when they apply for paid work later.}

Klopp came out the other day and said Mignolet is staying. Of course this could just be what is said to the Media.

I would be happy to see him stay as you will not find many 4th choice CB’s better than him. He still has a lot to offer on and off the field.
But with that said if he wanted to leave I would like to think the club wouldn’t stand in his way as I am sure a decent replacement could be found. Also if the prices quoted are correct then it might be to good to turn down as we wouldn’t be getting close to £25mil for him if we keep him another year or two.
