When it rains it pours! Just read that Ox not only injured his acl but the medial ligament and hamstring too. So we may not see him on the field in 2018 again. Recovery is going to take time and effort. Really empathize for the guy. Was beginning to come onto his own, and carve his own place in the team. 😒 🤞.

Big shame for the lad, was coming into his own as well - hopefully he can make a full recovery.


2.) 14 May 2018 20:12:19
If that's true, everything else will be healed by the time his ACL has healed. It isn't like only 1 thing heals at a time.


3.) 14 May 2018 20:24:10
Don't count on seeing Ox until December 2018.


4.) 14 May 2018 20:53:15
He will be like a new signing for the second part of the season and all being well he will come back big and strong.

He has really impressed both on and off the pitch.

Got a feeling the Ox is going to pick up plenty of trophies with us in the next few seasons.

Let’s get number 6 to give him a boost.


5.) 14 May 2018 21:23:47
A bad blow and an area I get increasingly worried about. With Coutinho gone and Can likely to leave this summer we have a shortage in midfield, we have Keita arriving which eases some of the worry but now Chamberlain isn’t due back until December.

As it is we have.

Henderson (some injury issues) .
Milner.
Wijnaldum.
Can (leaving in summer) .
Chamberlain (out until December) .
Lallana (likely to leave) .

Keita

It seems Ceballos is highly likely which if happens gives us.

Henderson.
Milner.
Keita.
Wijnaldum.
Chamberlain.
Ceballos.

Plus Coutinho still needs replacing which hopefully mean Fekir or Pulisic arrives. Given Chamberlain is out until at least December and the possibility of any of the front three being injured or out of form, should we look to sign Ceballos, Pulisic and Fekir?

Would give us great depth and quality in midfield and attack.


6.) 14 May 2018 21:26:36
Chambo actually sourced 2 tickets for a father and son he met near the end of the season.

class act on and off the pitch!

hope he stays positive through his injury and can get through this!


7.) 14 May 2018 22:44:10
I kept thinking we got lucky with being him injury free compared to his arsenal days and now he's crocked. At least he's got the summer to recover and hopefully he can make it back before the busy christmas period.


8.) 14 May 2018 22:57:46
Hopefully he doesn't lose his pace and explosiveness. Really liked him this season, and offers a good option in the middle or wide. We Definetely need cover out wide, pace and the option to play as a forward or attacking midfielder too. Fekir ticks that box for me.


9.) 14 May 2018 22:42:25
Jonesred I understand your concerns and I’ve just been having a near identical conversation with a mate as he had the same worries. But I personally think that if we sign our targets (Cellabos and AM) along with Keita, then we will have sufficient players to cope with Ox’s injury.

If we use this seasons formation as an example and look at the squad hypothetically with those signings. Hendo, Keita and Fekir start with gigi, Milner and Cellabos in reserve is plenty, even if let’s say we lose hendo and Fekir to injury, we still would have a midfield of Cellabos, Keita and gig/ Milner, and then gives players like Trent and Woodburn the opportunity to play in midfield. Especially if we sign a rightback as the eds have mentioned.

I’d say signing another midfielder on top of all that could end up being more disruptive than productive.
Cheers.


10.) 15 May 2018 01:10:48
Don’t forget about TTA.


11.) 15 May 2018 05:57:23
Terrible shame. Ox had become an automatic starter in the midfield. An explosive player. He was outstanding against City in the CL.

This is clearly a very serious injury to his knee. It is entirely possible he will come back as good as before. Also entirely possible he will never be the same player.

At this point, the club has to plan for life without him. "Back in December2018", "nine months" etc are all just guesses.

So we very much need to bring in another midfielder now, in addition to Keita.


12.) 16 May 2018 15:27:32
No way Lallana leaves this summer - I expect him to make an impact when he gets subbed in in the 65th minute of the CL Final.

That being said, I only think we'll bring in 1 or 2 additional midfielders.

I personally get excited about the potential of a Milner, Keita, Ox midfield, and I don't think it's the end of the world if Lallana starts the season in Ox's spot

Bottom line, I'm not too worried about our midfield depth, even though it looks rough for the CL Final.


13.) 17 May 2018 15:58:50
He is only 24 yo. I remember Mane was injured and got back in 2 months.

56 goals in 74 appearances for LFC by Mohammed Salah. That's a blistering pace. The man can play football. 🏆.

ArAy1969

{Ed0333's Note - that is one friggin sexy stat 1969. Don’t overlook the fact he’s missed some absolute sitters along the way, just imagine his stats if he’d scored even half of those chances.


1.) 08 Dec 2018 15:28:06
Exactly Ed0333. And only one of those was from a penalty.


2.) 08 Dec 2018 16:09:52
Brilliant player only shame is his reaction when he scores these days. His face is like ed25 going into the off licence only to be told they are out of SC, well maybe not that bad. Joking aside reminds me of couts towards the end.

{Ed0333's Note - maybe not celebrating is a form of celebrating. Seriously people there’s more pressing issues to worry about like hoping Jose keeps winning football matches and long may it continue.


3.) 08 Dec 2018 16:26:38
Jose can win football matches but it better not be next weel ed333.

{Ed0333's Note - obvs Liverbird lol


4.) 08 Dec 2018 16:50:45
Acered, Salah may not be celebrating that much cos he has bigger targets for himself and LFC this season so him scoring a goal is just part of that process and nothing more. Or he is not celebrating cos he is enjoying watching the critics eat some serious crow after many called him a one-season wonder and all that. Just an opinion.

{Ed0333's Note - It really doesn’t bother me to be fair if he celebrates or not but if I had a choice I’d want him to do the Ramos celebration every time he scores. I love that. It’s hilarious and must wind Ramos up to the point of him combusting.


5.) 08 Dec 2018 17:43:21
I would totally love that, Ed0333 if Salah did that after every goal he scores.

{Ed0333's Note - just goes to show you don’t need to use twitter to destroy someone these days


6.) 08 Dec 2018 18:25:51
If you guys can find and watch the video of Salah going wild on the sidelines with Moreno and Shaqiri after Origi's goal at Everton, you would think differently about all this celebration mumbo jumbo.


7.) 08 Dec 2018 18:20:21
Fair reply from BRover and ed0333 both your comments make sense, like the idea of the Ramos celebration.


8.) 08 Dec 2018 21:15:04
I think you'll find that he has scored two penalties one against Huddersfield Town last season and the other against Red Star at Anfield this season.


9.) 08 Dec 2018 21:11:45
This is why he doesn’t celebrate he’s scored so many it’s mundane to him now ;)


 

 

03 Dec 2018 11:16:41
Some additional points from the game that have not already been mentioned.

1) Klopp got his substitutions right, this time. People always mention when he is too slow or the wrong ones are made. Bringing on Origi was genius, with hindsight, of course. Let's give the man his due. And people are not wrong in now saying Origi should be given his shot ahead of Solanke and Sturridge as a sub. He certainly seems mentally ready to take on the job, now.

2) That running onto the pitch to celebrate with Alisson, will be the stuff of legend, I tell you. Never seen anything like it (by a manager) in my decades of watching football. Nothing fires up a team more than knowing your manager is with you (in spirit) on the playing field. What a character this Jurgen Klopp is. Hope the FA takes a very lenient view of all this.

3) Richarlison is probably spending too much time with his pal Neymar in the national side and learning some of his tricks. Every striker knows he's a target, so what's with the getting up and confronting the other player every time? Look at Salah. Gets just as much physical "attention", and yet he just gets up and get's on with it.

ArAy1969

1.) 03 Dec 2018 11:33:41
It was great to see Klopp celebrate so much and you’re right it will be replayed constantly and talked about. But I hope he gets punished correctly by the FA, it may have been a moment of madness but it was a stupid thing to do and could you imagine the uproar if Mourinho had done it against Liverpool or city. Let’s have an even playing field.


2.) 03 Dec 2018 11:58:50
Love to see it as a red but would have made my blood boil if it were the other way round. He’ll pay his £17000 fine and carry on. I’m surprised more hasn’t been made of it to be honest, Mourinho would have been getting pelters.


3.) 03 Dec 2018 12:29:42
If klopp gets punished it will be right to do so. You can't argue against the pnishment one bit.

There is a big difference between morinho and klopp though.

If morinho had have done it it would have been purely to wind the fans up.

Klopp is a crazy emotional guy and his explanation of it fits his character. He got caught up in the emotion of the goal and ended up where he was before he realised he shouldn't be on the pitch. There was no intention to rub everton fans noses on it or create trouble.

That doesn't make it right and he should be punished.

But i love the guy even more for it. All danger aside for the action ofcourse.


4.) 03 Dec 2018 12:33:43
I suppose its hard to question Klopp's substitution's when we won the game, but I was baffled by him taking Salah off when Firmino seemed so off the pace. Especially late in the game when Salah's pace might prove more effective.

I thought Shaqiri was playing well as well, but I understand needing to sure up the midfield. Regardless, happy with the win and got a good laugh out of it.


5.) 03 Dec 2018 12:39:01
Whatever it costs him I was made up. There’s passion for you. That’s what I want from our manager, that just has to rub off on the team. He’s said he wants the team to play ‘til the last whistle and that’s what they did.


6.) 03 Dec 2018 16:01:01
your spot on, ND, passion from our manager, don't think there is a team in the premiership who have that,
we are a very special team,
YNWA .


7.) 03 Dec 2018 16:57:50
great great win, just thinking, would the Shaq be better coming on as an impact sub, he played ok, but missed a really good chance to put us one up, maybe it was cos it was derby day .


8.) 03 Dec 2018 19:03:56
If Klopp gets fined then that is the rule and even he will accept it as he already apologized for doing so. That does not remove from the fact that it was just bananas last night. That is the stuff of legends and his running on the pitch is something I prolly would have done as well esp. with the way Klopp LIVES these games live and direct. Big up to him, LFC, the fans, players and of course, ORRRRIIIGGGIIIII!

{Ed0333's Note - I don’t understand why everyone thinks Klopps actions were ‘disrepectful’? I honestly wouldn’t be bothered if a rival manager done that? It’s an expression of positive joy and emotion how can you police and censor that? They say there aren’t any personalities left in football this is why because we curb anything left field. Fining/banning him would be an insult to life.


 

 

24 Nov 2018 17:25:45
Today's game was the perfect example of why we're a very serious title contender. We kept plugging away at a team that was playing with several buses parked in front of their goal. Sometimes 8 players in the back line (seriously, I counted it once) . We were very patient and constantly probing, constantly searching for an opening without taking any risks. Keeping possesion and control of the ball, throughout the game. And we showed why teams will always fear us, because one small mistake and we're on the counterattack with that devastating speed and finishing execution. We have that danger from set pieces (Shaqiri and TAA) that Coutinho always provided, too.

I also want to point out what a beast that Doucoure is. In that one particular one on one with Fabinho, he outran him and outmuscled him and then did the same to a couple of others. I must say I am a bit disapointed with Hendo, though. I expect the Captain to show poise, calm and self-control at all times. It doesn't matter that he probably is experiencing a lot of anxiety due to various injuries over the past couple of years and can't seem to put together a string of amazing games. But I still expect the Captain to keep it together at all times, and not get sent off. I'm sure he would want to play the derby; now he can't.

ArAy1969

1.) 24 Nov 2018 17:35:26
Im also dissapointed at hendo. At the other end Alisson was trying to calm everyone. he should have stayed calm. oh well we can let naby have the game at derby i guess.


2.) 24 Nov 2018 17:50:54
To be fair to Hendo, he's been sent off what, twice in 6 years? Gerrard got sent off twice a season and people just praised his aggression and commitment.

He should know better but it's his first red card since 2014 so I'm not going to get on his back for a couple of soft bookings.


3.) 24 Nov 2018 18:16:11
And they were both soft bookings. But it was John Moss refereeing, so he was probably still down the other end of the pitch when they happened.


4.) 24 Nov 2018 18:24:35
Last time Hendo was sent off it cost us a league title apparently.


5.) 24 Nov 2018 19:10:00
It will be frustration over his stop start season.


6.) 24 Nov 2018 21:06:09
MK you're talking nonsense. We all should be annoyed at him for getting sent off, he lost his head in that 10 minute period before seeing red. Actually bit annoyed that klopp didn't take him off, he was a red card waiting to happen. His reds weren't for crunching tackles, they were both unnecessary, the second especially, it was petulance simple as.


7.) 24 Nov 2018 21:08:51
Does it matter? Players get sent off it happens. The main thing is in years gone by we’d have capitulated at that point, conceded and probably conceded again. Today we even stepped it up after the sending off.
We are a different team these days.


8.) 24 Nov 2018 21:46:25
Actually Klopp said in his post match conference that Fabinho was being readied to replace Henderson after the 1st yellow. Just didn't happen quickly enough.


9.) 24 Nov 2018 22:17:06
Spot on, OP. That was the exact feeling I got from the game. We simply wore Watford down cos they were chasing us around all game long with Bobbie dragging their mid's out of position to allow the front three to run into. We kept the ball well, kept moving them around and by around the 55th min, I could see that we were turning the screws on them.

There was a move where Mane hit the post of a Bobbie/ Robbo combination. That play happened cos Hughes, Capou and Success were no longer tracking back and it allowed gaps out wide for us to run into. How did the first goal happen? The exact same play. Robbo to Bobbie to Mane (unmarked in the gap out wide) to Salah and GOAL. It was lights out after that cos Watford were gone physically. This is what we should be doing to such teams. Stay patient, keep working hard, have variety in your attacks and the openings will come.

As for Hendo, he should have known better, really. Not withstanding, I thought he had a brilliant game and did what he was asked to do effectively.


 

 

07 Oct 2018 16:14:19
Announced lineup against ManC:

Alisson, Gomez, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Henderson, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

So TAA gets a rest (but on the bench) with Gomez taking his place. And Keita is available on the bench too.

ArAy1969

1.) 07 Oct 2018 16:25:57
Strongest bench at anfield for years!

Come on redmen!


2.) 07 Oct 2018 16:53:06
makes no sense - Gomez can fill in at right back but it is definitely not a position he is comfortable in, least compared to centre-back. Hope this selection doesn't come back to haunt us.


3.) 07 Oct 2018 18:48:28
To be fair Lovren had a good game today. I still prefer Gomez as CB but you've got to call it as you see it.


4.) 07 Oct 2018 23:03:19
Seano, it was clear for anyone with their eyes open the past few games, to see that TAA needed a blow so why not play Gomez there esp. since he played the whole of last season at RB, right? Oh, did I mention that Lovs and Gomez played a blinder? Klopp has a message for you and it goes, "You're welcome".


 

 

29 Sep 2018 16:45:20
Perfect. Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Mane, Salah and Firmino, announced as the starting line up. Our best against their best. Let's get ready to Rumbbbbblllllllll 💪.

ArAy1969

1.) 29 Sep 2018 20:13:53
Should have been Keita for Hendo/ Gini.


2.) 29 Sep 2018 22:07:27
Agreed Ron I'd of put Keita on instead of Gini personally mate, I think the midfield would've been much stronger with Keita starting ahead of Gini but what do I know? I'll tell you, not a lot! but I was surprised to see Keita on the bench.


3.) 29 Sep 2018 22:35:57
Keita runs at their midfield and turns them round, Hendo/ Gini don’t make as many dribbles forward as Keita.

I thought he pushed them back when he came on and was instrumental in us having so many chances.


4.) 29 Sep 2018 23:12:59
Glad to see this pointed out. Seems Klopp prefers the consistency of gini, milner and hendo but it was evident early we needed more from the mids. Kieta brought that. I miss the Ox honestly, he was always a threat.


5.) 30 Sep 2018 01:30:43
Spot on, Petecolo. I thought Keita would have started BUT Klopp recognized that Milner was gassed and Wiji was tiring as well so he brought on Keita whose energy, pace and drive would take the fight to Chelsea from midfield cos it worked and forced them back.


6.) 30 Sep 2018 18:14:00
yeah I thought hendo should have come off earlier when salah came off to many sideways passes from him today and I know salah was not having a great game but his pace is still a threat.

It's a good idea to check the facts. ManC played West Ham (about 10 days ago) without De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Mendy and Otamendi; all of whom you could say are starters. That's hardly injury free. And they still won 0-4.

I just hope Lovren can put in a good string of games together, now.

Looked everywhere and all I could find was that he has bitten Bakkal (at Ajax), Ivanovic and Chiellini. Maybe the blatant hand ball (for a penalty and red card that was wildly celebrated after it missed) at the World Cup is being confused for a bite?

Isco is also supposedly available. Which would be the better player for us now? A player like Aouar who will need a year or two for development, or Isco, who is pretty much the finished product and can make an immediate impact? (I'm aware we have Shaqiri, but i don't mind having 2 players who can play the position; we need it now) .

I'll play Devil's Advocate and just say that if Salah is, in fact, throwing some attitude at whomever, then let him. He is definitely in the top 3 strikers in Europe (and therefore, the World) and he's entitled to it if he wants to make a point to someone. Whether it's the fans who doubted him, or the journalists who buried him for the season already, or Klopp who took him off in games, or even himself for not having the same goal tally as last year (possibly), the point is, so what? Firmino sent a message with his one eye closed celebrations, right? To me Salah is simply saying "I'm still the Man, I just showed you, and I'll continue showing you".

The key is not to be swayed in either direction by the media. I remember too well the false sense of security that prevailed when both Suarez and Coutinho signed new contracts and professed their undying love and devotion to LFC, as reported by the media in truck loads. And then both handed in a transfer request a few months later in the summer.
