Ed's, do you know anything about Daniel Carr of Dulwich Hamlet?
The Daily Mail are reporting that "Liverpool have given a trial to the 'non-league sensation', who has scored 23 goals in 23 games this season. " {Ed001's Note - I don't know anything about him sorry.}


1.) He was released by Reading where he was a winger. Dulwich have played him up front and he's been a sensation. We are talking non league though

2.) Wasn't Chris Smalling non league at one stage? He's done alright for himself since.

I've just read some December stats. I know stats don't tell the whole picture, but these are pretty conclusive:
December (all competitions )
P8 W8 D0 L0
Goals for 23.
Goals conceded 3.

Maybe Jurgen has a chance of manager of the month though Ole Gunnar has won back to back games at Man Utd so he is a bit of a miracle worker.

In 20 games we have been behind at anfield for a total of 3 minutes. Yesterday.

We are a monster of a team right now. This is no fluke. Where not punching above our weight.

It is hard for everyone to get out the mindset that were doing exceptional and city the great are having a blip.

We are doing exactly what we are capable of. City have come unstuck because there not the greatest there has ever been.

If klopp doesn't win manager of the month I will stop watching the game. I presume you were joking.

4.) 30 Dec 2018 17:36:25
This rise has been on the cards each year. but let's not be naive, we are as lilely tonexperience a blip ourselves. But hopefully oir squad is resilient enough now to minimize its length and impact.

The most disappointing aspect today was how heads sunk after going a man down. The old saying "when the going gets tough, the tough get going". Well, we had no tough men out there today. No leader. No one to rally their teamates. We needed a seige mentality but it was sadly lacking.

Other teams will go down to 10 men against City but they won't concede 4 goals.

But it was only the 4th game of the season so we still have a long season and 3 cup competitions to look forward to. Hopefully, at the end of the season, well look back at this result and see it a watershed moment that strengthened the teams mentality.


{Ed002's Note - I notice the Liverpool fans often quote old clichés like "when the going gets tough, the tough get going", "he’s got two good feet and "take the bull by the horns". Is this something peculiar to Merseyside or do the fans of other sides do it as well?}

Ed002, you're enjoying yourself too much with the cliche's. it's hilarious.

There's a great article by Simon Hughes in today's Irish Independent that recounts a story from 2012 when Pep Segura ago fell out with John Henry and FSG.

For those of you who don't know who Pep Segura is - in 2012 he was Liverpool's Acadamy technical manager and now he is Barcelona's general manager overseeing player recruitment.

The story "goes some way towards explaining why Barcelona were so forceful in their attempt to sign Philippe Coutinho but ultimately, why their attempt will prove not to be quite forceful enough".

I'm unable to post the link here, but it's worth looking it up to read.


1.) 01 Sep 2017 19:09:53
I read about that this this morning. He said he was hung out to dry by FsG coz Brendan Rodgers didn't want a DOF after Comolli was sacked. Bet he's even more annoyed that FSG have got the better of him once again haha.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 19:13:06
Read this this morning and inciteful article into the roll of Rodgers in the troubles with our policies.

3.) 01 Sep 2017 19:15:18
It's utter BS in my opinion for one.
Trying to make a story out of nothing.
As if Segura has a vendetta against Liverpool/ FSG because a job he was promised was denied to him in the end.
I don't even slightly buy this "story".
So he would risk his current job, probably the pinnacle of his career, to get one over on John Henry with multi millions involved.
Thinks about it, it's just poor journalism and a fabrication really with some facts spliced in to make it look more feasible.

4.) 01 Sep 2017 20:30:56
Agreed, but maybe the journalists are thinking the same thing some of us laymen are thinking. Which is, how does a club start at 72million and then go more than double to 160million (supposed figures) within 2 months. Or the journalists are fabricating the numbers also, in which case its all bogus from beginning to end. Same thing happened with Lemar. Arsenal started the summer with a bid of 31million and see it justified to go all the way up to 95million on deadline day? Can't you argue that Wenger was trying to get one over Lfc for snaring the Ox perhaps, in the same way Segura was supposedly trying to get one over Fsg? Would be really interesting to know the true inside story.

5.) 01 Sep 2017 21:22:01
What did we offer for Andy Carroll first 6 years ago?
I believe it was about £15m or so.
That went to in and around double that.
It's low-balling, LFC are experts at it if you believe everything you read. :)

6.) 02 Sep 2017 08:02:54
We offered that for Carroll because that was all he was worth and then they bumped the price because being held to ransom after the Torres money.

This isn't as odd as sounds. Warren Gatland was ousted from the Irish rugby job 16 years ago, he still very noticeably bears a grudge about it now. Some peopke harbour grudges.

The question I would throw in is could a club throw in a late bid, with no intention of compketing the signing, but by doing that they are causing a distraction that means another team can't get the deal done.

I know its only half time but hat off to Rogers tonight. He's got the tactics spot on and the team set up well with Lucas and Firminho slotting in.

Unfortunately Raheem Sterling represents the footballer of the future. For them, it's not about playing for and representing a club; it's about money and who can give them the most. It's not about improving with each game; it's about improving their profile. It's not about skills; it's about hair styles. It's not about impressing their manager; it's about impressing other managers. They don't listen to their parents, they listen to their agents, (sometimes parents become agents, but that's for a different thread!)

It's not all their fault, as they are all young impressionable kids, easily influenced by those around them, and this is where the issue is. Agents have too large an influence on young players, filling their heads with what could be instead of showing them what they have. They should be directed by the player; instead it's the other way round. IMO most (not all) agents are the scourge of football. An agent does not want his player to stay too long at one club - there's more money to be had when a player is moving clubs.

Also, parents, guardians and friends need to be honest and keep the young players level headed - there are too many yes men and scroungers looking for a piece of the pie.

I'm not sure what the answer is, but I'm worried football is becoming more about players and their contracts, than the teams and fans.

Hey Macca. Great to hear from you. Are the club pushing for this to happen in January or are they willing to wait for the summer?

I think Philips is a more capable player than Fer. That being said, I don't think any QPR midfielder will improve our squad.

Eds, I read that in 2010 that the FA blocked Ochoa's move the Premier League as the gloves he needs to wear are too big and outside the English FA regulations. If this story is true, then surely he can't move now unless the FA have lifted or changed their rules on glove sizes. He needs the larger glove due to being polydactyly. {Ed002's Note - I find the whole story rather less than 100% - because he said also Bayern Muich, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Dortmund were interested as well.}

I just can't see point 2 working.
If an away player leaves the field on the far touchline and walks back to the dugout there's a huge possibility some or all in the stands will be incited. Just imagine the abuse a Liverpol player would receive walking around the pitch at OT. Likewise any derby.

Would or could Pep do what Rafa did and stay with a team through relegation and bring them back up again, on a limited budget?
He probably could, but I doubt he would.

He was my boyhood hero. Still is, come to think of it. In my mind he was the greatest player since Pele. pace, power, precision, he had it all. His goal against Brazil showcased all his talents in just a few seconds. Oh to go back in time and see him playing again. thank God for YouTube😎.

After watching last nights game I'm going to throw Rebrov in with Courtois and De Gea.
