Hi Eds.
Any views from around the club in John Flanagan?
I know the loan season didn't go as planned but on the pitch he has never let anyone down and shows the heart of a lion. Will he be given a shot in pre-season?


{Ed025's Note - i very much doubt it fitz..

1.) 02 Jun 2017 12:42:35
No definitely, he's barely featured for Burnley. Seems a great honest lad, but his knee injuries have had killed any bit of his speed. Should move to the championship and get a few few seasons under his belt.

2.) 02 Jun 2017 13:43:21
I read an article after his breakthrough season that said on average he was taken on more per game than any other full back in the league. That's stuck with me that Maybe we got carried away on him a little. Obviously injuries have struck but maybe he just wasn't as good as we all thought.

3.) 02 Jun 2017 14:20:52
I saw him in the bar of the Radisson in Manchester after Burney had been knocked out of the cup, by Lincoln I think? He was caning the beers with Joey Barton, so if he's been hanging out with that bell end and listening to his career advice his is virtually over. Shame as I liked him when he broke through.

{Ed025's Note - comparing him to barton is a terrible thing to say about a bell end pieboy.. :)

4.) 02 Jun 2017 14:37:06
Personally think the injuries have taken too much of a toll on him, sorry to say as he was very promising.

5.) 02 Jun 2017 15:38:09
Hanging out with Barton? Damn, that's bad news. Thanks Ed and all.

Courtois will be back from the world cup next week and should join Real or Athletico (his kids are in Madrid and it's where he wants to be) . So that should start the goal keeper merry go round. Courtois, Oblak, Navas, Allison might all be in that mix.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 20:47:31
As long as we avoid Navas and Cillessen I’ll be happy.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 23:41:49
Give ward a Run a of games see how the lad gets on can't be any worse the mignolet or karius.

3.) 13 Jul 2018 05:26:35
Haven't posted in a while even though I'm regularly on the site. Have to weigh in on the GK debate though. I'd definitely like to see Ward get an opportunity to claim top spot. I think with all the negative attention our other 2 keepers get it might spur him on. He'll know that the spotlight will be squarely fixed on him and that might be just be what makes him more determined to succeed.

4.) 13 Jul 2018 08:10:24
We don't see what Klopp and his staff see every day in training, but I'd like to see Ward given a try as well. It depends on if Klopp sees that as the straw that could finally break the camel's back in the case of Karius's already fragile confidence.
He's backed Karius recently, to do a sudden u-turn on that would be out of character for Klopp.
I think Karius will be given the chance to prove he can rise above it. If he fails, Ward will get his chance.

5.) 13 Jul 2018 16:18:13
I don't know who the better keeper but if Klopp decided on Karius then he must have a very good reason for doing that . His job depends on his choice not my job or yours.



29 Jun 2018 15:26:02
Anyone know about when the Ox is expected to be fit for?


{Ed002's Note - No they don't. The club has not said anything.}

1.) 29 Jun 2018 15:47:12
Thanks Ed.

2.) 29 Jun 2018 16:35:51
I think it’s 8-9 months so not expected before end December or Jan I think.

3.) 29 Jun 2018 19:10:06
Hopefully he has a speedy return to match fitness when he's ready. He could be like a new signing if he does.

4.) 29 Jun 2018 21:05:05
Butland will be bought and will be a star because he has self belief. and because I've got £50 on it happening so sort it out!



11 Apr 2018 12:04:38
I just uploaded a picture on the 'Sightings' page of some of the team celebrating one of the goals. For me it sums up Klopp's management.

In the picture is the £8ml left back from Hull, the 19 year old right back from the acadamy, the Chelsea reject who is now the best in the Premiership, the striker who 'doesn't score enough goals' and the midfielder that people wondered why Klopp signed him from Arsenal. all celebrating going into the Champions League semi finals.


1.) 11 Apr 2018 12:33:19
That's fantastic Fitzy.

2.) 11 Apr 2018 13:41:57
It’s not on the Sightings page I’ve just looked at.

3.) 11 Apr 2018 14:50:38
I tried uploading it again there Klavy.

{Ed033's Note - Nothing came through, which could mean that the image is too large because there is an uploading file size limit of 6MB. Do you know the size of the image?

Just watched a UTube clip of Totti's last game for Roma. A reminder of what football can be about.

So EDs, what do you think, let's talk about picking an all time worlds greatest 11 of one club players who could have moved to other clubs and won more but didn't. So if they were at a club winning leagues etc they don't count. If like Gerard they finished the twilight of their career somewhere else in a lesser league for a season or two they still count (ie they would have stayed longer if age hadn't caught up with them)

Names like Gerard and Totti come to my mind. I remember Le Tissier in his day. To give him his due, John Terry came through the ranks at Chelsea didn't he? Casillias in goal for Real. Paulo Maldini, Franco Baresi etc. So what do you all think?


{Ed001's Note - Terry, Cassillas and Maldini won titles mate. I am pretty sure Baresi did as well.}

1.) 10 Mar 2018 04:26:26
Alan shearer, in an odd way. I know he played for Southampton and Blackburn but he spurned a lot of interest to go and stay at Newcastle.

{Ed001's Note - he turned down Ferguson's Man Utd when they were winning everything to stay with Newcastle on more than one occasion.}

2.) 10 Mar 2018 09:53:43
Gk: Rogerio Ceni (Sao Paulo)
Cb Jack Charlton (Leeds)
Cb: Jamie Carragher (Liverpool)
Cb: Ledley King (Spurs)
Rm: Gary Kelly (Leeds)
Cm: Danielle De Rossi (Roma)
Cm: Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)
Lm: Kenny Jacket (Watford)
Cam: Matthew Le Tissier (Southampton)
Cam: Francesco Totti (Roma)
St: Santiago Bernabeu (Real Madrid)

Took me ages to think of this side 😂 does Ceni count? He won a lot of titles but they were in a financially poor league, and he could easily have got a move to a big club in Europe if he'd wanted. Jack Charlton only won one league title but played for Leeds for 2 decades so I figured it would be fair to include him. Gerrard was allowed by the OP. Bernabeu stuck with Real Madrid at a time when Spanish football was in disarray and then helped to transform them from the dugout and the boardroom. He is the Madrid Equivalent of Bill Shankly and Kenny Dalglish combined.

Forgive me this self serving post.

I've posted on here a few times over the last few years about Klopp's progress. Normally it was after things were not going well and so I was pointing out we had to be patient and let him build.

Basically my point was that Klopp doesn't have the budget to change a team in 2 or 3 transfer windows like Man City or Man Utd and that it would take him 3 Summer transfer windows to build his team, to take chances on some players and give others coaching and time, some would work, some wouldn't, like it was in the 80s and 90s for all managers. Also I pointed out that while he never spoke of it publically he had to move out a lot of players and did not have the budget (or attractiveness as a club) to target A grade players before getting back into and then thriving in the Champs League.

Seeing it happening is exciting. I think we will finish 2nd and have a real crack off the Champions League (I also said this re. the Champions league on here near the start of the season due to how most teams in the Champs league set up) .

Next season it will be the team that Klopp (and his coaching team) built, coached and evolved. We will take on everyone.

Klopp could have gone to more successful clubs (in recent decades) with bigger budgets. He refused Man Utd. and other clubs but as he said himself he told his wife while on his coaching break 'if Liverpool call I won't be able to say no'. He is a romantic believer and wanted the Liverpool challenge of restoring the club to the top, a good way to go but on track. YNWA.


{Ed025's Note - good post that fitzy..

1.) 03 Mar 2018 22:19:44
Brilliant post, Fitzy. I love Klopp, worts and all and he's like family. Sometimes, you wanna bash their heads in and other times, you wanna hug them tight. I just hope he can get us some pots to crown his already impressive body of work that he has achieved in such a short time, esp. judging by how far behind our current rivals, we were when he came to us.

2.) 03 Mar 2018 22:33:45
Great post Brover especially point about Klopp being like family.

3.) 03 Mar 2018 23:02:11
Cracking post that fitzy. Love it. Klopp is taking us places. Feeling pretty sure about that and I am enjoying the football we are playing under him. He is assembling a real team capable of fighting for trophies and it’s exciting times to be a Liverpool supporter. I love the passion he shows at the side of the pitch (maybe ridiculous to some) but I saw an interview with VVD saying how the boys love it and it installs a positive feeling in them, makes them feel like he believes in them. He really is building something special.

Special mention to Karius and the Ox today. 👏👏👏.

Every player needs real competition for his place to acheive and maintain top performance. Clyne has that now on his return. He might surprise a few on here.

If Mignolet goes and we need a third keeper for cover, Given is looking for a club.

It was horrible what happened appointing Houllier as joint manager. The club should not have done that and Houiller should not have taken part.

That was nearly perfect Jurgen. All you were missing was mentioning a "cheeky bid"

I don't know what everyone else has been watching. Lallana was injuryed all of last season. The season before having been moved to centre midfield he was probably the best player over the season (defo top 2).
I don't think Klopp would want him to leave at all.
