As a Ugandan and Liverpool fan yesterday was one of my worst days in football. Uganda was the first country to be eliminated out of the AFcon and Anfield also finally broke down.

Here in Uganda people are still celebrating the fact Uganda qualified for Afcon after a 39 year wait and put up a decent show against African super powers (Ghana and Egypt) . The boys are going to be welcomed as heroes after there final game (win or lose) . We taking it as a learning curve and development for maybe the next Afcon or even World cup.

However I don't understand all this out cry about liverpoolfc' recent results, I think ever since Klopp came we are a team in progress whereby even after the dip in form we should appreciate the fact that as football club we are improving. Before the season started we all wanted champs league football which we are still in contention of. No one talked about the title. Now everyone feels like the boys are not doing enough for title. How should Man City fans feel like if we (liverpoolfc) feel like the worst.
Anyway I don't know much as I'm a young fan, maybe liverpool fc has a devine right to success.
But as for me. I'm still happy with how the club is going forward. I will start getting worried about the title when we are once again a perennial champions league qualifying team like Arsenal.

Hey fellow African brother. Am happy for you and your country. Am sure you'll be better next time. Your boys gave decent account of themselves.

I love sturidge a lot and i believe is the 3rd most prolific striker in the league behind Aguero and zlatan. However i believe it's best if Lfc and sturidge parted company.   This would benefit both parties as sturidge will get his desired game time elsewhere and Klopp won't have the pressure of playing sturidge ahead of origi and ings. Its very clear klopp favors origi and he believes he is destined for big things but at the moment firmino is leading the line which throws origi further the pecking, for ings is almost getting out of the picture because you can't see him establishing himself with sturidge and origi already flexing out who gets on first from the bench. Sturidge is a good player but with the way klopp likes his teams to play sturidge is more of a luxury now. Sell him now at the best price possible before he depreciates in value.

1.) 16 Oct 2016 09:35:59
I do not see how selling Sturridge is a solution. His future is unclear but I would rather have him on the bench than go find another player as capable as him.

Ed001 also said that he should get his chances this season. Mane will be off to the African Cup of Nations in January so that will be the perfect time for Sturridge to try regain his form. It is all about managing his fitness and at this point Firmino, Mane and Coutinho are the better option as our attacking three.

Sturridge will just have to be patient. He might be frustrated at not being first choice but he will also be aware that he needs to be fully fit when called upon. Unless he pulls a Sakho then he should be sold. Players will show their disappointment when not being picked to start but it is how they deal with the situation and Sturridge seems to be level headed. He will just have to stick it out.


2.) 16 Oct 2016 10:14:47
@maxlfc even an on form sturidge is not the most hard working and unselfish player. Klopp wants a team game which i'm not sure sturidge is best at. Mane going for Afcon gives an opportunity to origi and ings to establish themselves. Both those boys are hard working and team players which klopp looks for in all his players. Sturidge is good but he doesn't complete a klopp team and very soon he will get frustrated, start whining and messing up the dressing room bonding.


3.) 16 Oct 2016 10:37:34
It would be extremely difficult to replace a player of Struridge's quality for a reasonable sum of money.

He's a top player and owes the club for the time we have stuck by him through all his injuries and paid his salary while we paid for his rehab.

He should earn his place up front not be looking for a way out. I think he will be fine and have a good season scoring some important goals.


4.) 16 Oct 2016 13:17:30
Really African Red? You think Klopp is feeling the pressure to play Sturridge ahead of Origi and Ings? Something tells me Klopp plays his best eleven regardless of outside influences and opinion. Danny Ings and Divock have their own strengths and abilities but neither has reached Sturridges level just yet.


5.) 16 Oct 2016 17:23:29
I think Sturridge has all the skill needed but there seems to be lacking in his attitude and Work ethic.

He was at his best for us when All the opposing defenders had keep an eye on Suarez first and then everyone else.
This gave Sturridge a bit more time and space and at that level that's all it takes.

I think we need Sturridge but more for next year in the Champions league after we win the prem.


6.) 16 Oct 2016 18:24:26
Sturridge is the first guy to come in if any of the front 4 is unavailable, because they can all shift to accomodate him up front. I think he will get plenty of game time this season.

I like Ings and Origi but DS is currently our best out and out striker. Why sell one bench player to bring in another that is less ready for first team football.

With Rafa visiting home tomorrow. Is there anyone else who feels FSG should have reappointed him instead of BR? Incase things failed to work out after a 3 year stint we could probably still have Klopp to come in just like it is now.

African red

1.) 22 Apr 2016 06:02:11
For the last time we were starting to go backwards towards the end of rafas reign.

He had taken us as far as he could.

I personally feel it all went wrong for rafa when paco left the club.


2.) 22 Apr 2016 08:08:09
Rafa was a great manager for us, but got too involved in the politics of the club and made a return anything soon untenable. Personally I also think that he's struggled to keep up with the top managers in the world tactically and is more suited to a mid table team now.


3.) 22 Apr 2016 08:53:14
Paco Ayesteran was massively under rated in terms of what he did for LFC I believe, thingd definitely changed when he left.


4.) 22 Apr 2016 08:56:54
Nah! BR gave it a good go and fsg were lookibg for someone more dynamic i rekon.


5.) 22 Apr 2016 09:20:21
No surprise that Pako left and we took a turn for the worse and he goes to Valencia and they have a turn in form.


6.) 22 Apr 2016 09:45:39
I'm going to be in the minority here but Rafa is so over hyped by our lot it's ridiculous.

He won the CL by unbelievable circumstance, (that no manager could of coached)

He won fa cup (or should I say Gerrard)

Every transfer window we took more dross on

He wanted to get rid of the best midfielder in the league.

His only competition for 4th spot was villa

I'm sorry but what did he do? Made us hard to beat in Europe?


7.) 22 Apr 2016 10:17:49
Still a better manager than Rodgers.


8.) 22 Apr 2016 10:26:26
oh good lord!


9.) 22 Apr 2016 10:26:33
Hem b - what did the Romans ever do for us?

{Ed001's Note - actually a lot of the stuff attributed to them was not them. Such as the roads, the roads were already there, they just improved them. They get a great press because they wrote the history of the time that we use, not because they were all that great.}


10.) 22 Apr 2016 10:41:02
He's had a lot more experience than BR too, give it time and Rodgers will be a much better manager. Yes he made quite a few mistakes when in charge of us but nobody slated him when we were challenging city for top spot. He did well with a team that had to cope with their main striker being banned for large parts, sulking for a move to Barcelona between being unplayable! Gerrard was at the end of his career and sterling was another sulking half the time. He did a good job, maybe LFC was a bit too soon for him but he always gave 100% and was honoured to manage us unlike some of the players! He has and still has respect for our club but people enjoy getting on his back. Nobody seems to go on about super Woy Hodgson's abysmal appointment though!

{Ed001's Note - but he didn't do a good job, that was why he was sacked.}


11.) 22 Apr 2016 10:42:26
What about education edOO1, or the aquaducts?

Priceless that we can also come on here for a view on this stuff!

{Ed001's Note - education existed before the Romans. Aquaducts was a design they improved upon, like pretty much everything they did. I am not actually sure if they were here in the UK before them, they certainly weren't the first to build them in Europe. The Romans weren't inventors or innovators. Slavery was probably the thing they can take the most credit for introducing to the UK to be honest.}


12.) 22 Apr 2016 11:37:44
Rafa was a great manager for us. Yes he got sacked because he made some mistakes but you can't deny his record as a manager
He brought us some incredible moments.
Look at where we were before he came and where we've been since he left. Those moments have not been reproduced or even close.


13.) 22 Apr 2016 11:47:08
Sad that our most successful manager in recent times doesn't get the respect he deserves.


14.) 22 Apr 2016 11:48:12
Rafa took dross on? Xabi, garcia, mash, torres etc etc. dunno what your talking about lad.


15.) 22 Apr 2016 12:23:35
Abo, I think he's talking about Itandje, Cavilieri, Dossena, Johnson, Degen, Skrtel, Paletta, Plessis, Insua, Riera, Pennant, Aquilani, N'Gog, Voronin, Keane, Morientes, Cisse etc.

Don't get me wrong, he was an excellent tactician and for people to say he had nothing to do with the trophies we won under his management is total BS. However his tinkering, bloated wage budget, and defensive set up cost us the title in 08/ 09 season. We had the best team in Europe that season by some distance. Yet somehow we won nothing due to negative tactics.

One other thing he doesn't get enough credit for is the revamp of the academy. Just because we're only seeing the benefits of that now doesn't mean he wasn't the catalyst. It's been improved further since Rafas days, but he kicked off the revolution. For that alone he deserves thanks.


16.) 22 Apr 2016 13:16:30
At the time of buying Johnson, Skrtel, Insua, Riera, Aquilani, N'Gog, Keane, Morientes and Cissee were all good buys

Johnson was one of the most dangerous attacking FB's in the league.

When paired with Agger and Riena behind him, Skrtel was a fairly quick and very solid defender - he only went to pot without their constant instruction

Insua was a good young player who we made a tidy profit on, and who went on to have a decent career.

N'Gog was also a pacey young striker worth taking a punt on, he just never developed.

Keane was the season we bough him, and the season following, a key member of a very dangerous spurs attack and a very successful premiership striker. In fact had we not given up and sold him so quickly, we would probably have won the league that year.

Moriantes, Cisse and Aquilani all proved before and after that they were talented guys, they just all had rotten luck with injuries (mostly impact injuries) and never got the chance to show their stuff. There is some argument that Morientes's past injuries had already done him in and Cisse was a vile human being, but all good players.

The transfer record of Rafa is no-where near as bad as people make it out. The biggest problem was volume of signings rather than who they were in the majority of scenarios.

{Ed002's Note - Aquilani had a lot more problems at Liverpool than his injury.}


17.) 22 Apr 2016 15:05:04
Rafa achieved the bare minimum every year, scraped 4th. The leading pack were out of sight. He never over achieved, he never coached anyone to be better than they were. He had no competition for CL places. That year we came close 2nd had sod all to do with him. That year we played completely different to any other year.

He went to the most dead cert team for the league inter Milan, and ballsed it right up. How many years had they won it on the trot when he got involved. He's been bang average everywhere he has gone since.

By the way I'm not slagging him off, very grateful for all he has done and he clearly loves the club I'm just saying he is not all that.


18.) 22 Apr 2016 16:35:07
Hem b you are being extremely disingenuous towards rafas contribution. Put another way how close were we to becoming a european power house for years and winning the champions league before he came on board. And as someone else said, to suggest that bodgers is in the same league as rafa is frankly insulting.

Yes he made mistakes but to suggest it was all luck and the players did it all by themselves is just nonsense.

Him and the then team brought me a night i will never ever forget and i thank and respect him for that. We now have klopp who i truly believe will win us the league next season and i look forward to the rollercoaster ride.


19.) 22 Apr 2016 17:13:03
So in the space of 4 years we won the champions league, the fa cup, got to the final of the CL again and came second. And none of that had anything to do with the manager being good at his job?


20.) 22 Apr 2016 18:18:24
The owners didn`t want him back and I`m elated at the fact that they did not look his way. Rafa is NOT the only one that can coach us neither is he a saint. In fact, he wasa huge part of the problem, not a solution and NEVER will be.


 

 

22 Nov 2015 07:45:36
I will admit that I was one of those who did not understand and agree with the firmino signing as we already had countless attacking midfielders on our books. I couldn't have been more wrong, the boy is so amazing. I am putting my foot on the ground and saying that firmino ends our such for the next Suarez. when you look at his movement in the final third is not that different from Suarez. need I talk about his desire to get on the ball? with game time and experience he will definitely reach or even supercede Suarez. his finishing will improve after all Suarez was also not the best finisher at the age of 24. And by the way he seems a really nice and down to earth bloke which means he won't miss so many games through bans.

African red

1.) 22 Nov 2015 09:16:32
Did we open a new competition of the most rediculus post of the month? Firmino is a nice player, he is not and will never be one tenth of Suarez. He had a good game yesterday, should have scored 2 or 3 more. At the moment he is not half as good as couts even. Suarez?


2.) 22 Nov 2015 10:00:56
Well Firminho can be as good as Suarez but not right now. after 2 seasons under Jurgen . who knows.

PS : even Suarez for that matter was not very good in his first season, he improved massively over the next seasons and right now he is is just brilliant. Yesterday was masterclass against Madrid.


3.) 22 Nov 2015 10:09:57
Fanobip, Suarez was good but not the best at 24, how many goals did he average in his first 13 premiership games? and yet he was brought when on form and at a time of a resurging Liverpool after the appointment of king Kenny? Here is a boy who came in after copa tournament, not given opportunity and playing for a lost team under br. now he is show casing his skill under klopp. Good as Suarez was, it's absurd if you think that Suarez of 5 seasons back was a world beater.


4.) 22 Nov 2015 10:46:07
One tenth of Suarez? Do you still worship Suarez in your free time?


5.) 22 Nov 2015 11:55:23
A little perspective guys, Suarez is a top-10 in the world player. Firmino has a long way to go before he can justify this comparison.


6.) 22 Nov 2015 12:18:50
Suarez wasnt top 10 when he signed for Liverpool. It took until his 3rd season before we seen the Suarez that we see today. His season and a half were ok but far from special. Its a bit unfair to compare the Firmino that has just arrived to the Suarez that left us.


7.) 22 Nov 2015 12:19:18
No mate. Firmino is a tidy little player. Suarez makes you challenge for league titles on his own, scoring goals in Champions League finals etc. World World Class.


8.) 22 Nov 2015 13:39:36
Fanobip, give firmino a bit of slack ffs he is getting used to the prem not all players can come to the prem and slot back in, i for one have said the same about linking him to suarez, the people who are doing so are looking to the future because they can see what i can see and what you can't see and that is the player will only get better and cause defences in the prem all kinds of trouble who won't like playing against him, suarez he is not suarez type of football yes all day long, if you can't see that then your not looking in the right place, is one on one with joe hart was a great save from hart not a miss by firmino, so do the lad a favour hey and give him a chance to get used to the prem and a new team a new manager and new team mates plus a new home and a new language, but all you go on about is negatives, he is doing better than some english players who have played in the prem for years, why not judge him at the end of the season maybe then you won't look like the fool you do now.

Saw this on Facebook page and found it quite funny

Dear Jose Mourihno
I hear your job hangs on the Chelsea v Liverpool match this coming weekend. If it is true then God is for us all.
Remember when our league title hopes hanged on the Chelsea v Liverpool match in 2013 and you decided to be you and parked the bus?
We needed the game so badly and you had absolutely nothing to lose? You remember?
This time you need the game badly and we have absolutely nothing to lose.
And you even celebrated like you won the league. Now we have a manager who will celebrate like he has won the league. Its our time.
What goes around comes around Jose.

I doubt All he could start in a liverpool 11.he is good at his attacking (positions in attack) but not that good at midfield. I would compare him to lampard. He can not control the game on his own. He needs supply like a striker. So to me he can not start at lfc at the moment. though I would still love him there. Delli can not perform any better than our 3 midfield ( hendo, gini, lallana) he can't out perform any of those. With all the love for him, he can't start in our 11. Don't even talk about our front three

@maxlfc even an on form sturidge is not the most hard working and unselfish player. Klopp wants a team game which i'm not sure sturidge is best at. Mane going for Afcon gives an opportunity to origi and ings to establish themselves. Both those boys are hard working and team players which klopp looks for in all his players. Sturidge is good but he doesn't complete a klopp team and very soon he will get frustrated, start whining and messing up the dressing room bonding.
