Just a few comments after reflecting on last night and calming down a bit.

1-0 isn't the end of the world. Not in the slightest. It's far from ideal but in reality we are more than capable of beating them 2-0 or more at home. To be totally honest, if we can't beat a side like that, at Anfield, in a European semi-final, with our crowd, our passion, our history, then we don't deserve it.

It's pointless talking about tactics, who shoulda played, who was at fault, Klopp made mistakes etc etc. It's now done. All of our energy should be on building that game up to be the biggest one in our history. I'm not sure about anyone else, but this week has felt really flat for me anyway? Other events have overshadowed the build up and rightly so (Sakho aside) . It's been a strange week to be an LFC fan, a real mix of emotions and I can't say I was overly up for the game yesterday and I think that seemed to be reflected in the players also. I'm not sure how everyone else felt? Just didn't have the excitement or the buzz for yesterday's game.

The bottom line is, next thursday has to be rocking. The build up has to be intense. We need to get put all our energy into making it a momentous occasion, even better than the Dortmund game. We have to let this team know why Anfield is THE worst place in the world for any away team to visit. We can and will do this, but the negativity (although fairly IMO from last night) has to stop now and we move on to creating such a buzz for the game that Thursday can't come quick enough.

J H

Couldn't say it better myself.

Allen should have put us 1-0 after 5mins but never mind.

Villareal didn't show that much to make me believe that we can't do the business in the 2nd leg.


2.) 29 Apr 2016 12:57:09
JH, you are spot on. no use rewriting history. What`s done is done. Villareal are a good team BUT defo NOT great nor better than BVB. They have not faced a crowd like ours and the passion that bleeds through the stands and the Kop onto the field. They could not finish us off and they we very flat which was mainly due to our game plan of giving them nothing apart from the soft goal we gave up. We have overturned bigger deficits vs better teams than this (BVB aside) hence, we should be promising them hell for 90mins because after the BVB game, that is what they will get.


3.) 29 Apr 2016 13:14:45
We kept a side that had won every game at home in the Europa league and most of their league games relatively quiet and had it finished 0-0 I think it would have been job done and everyone fairly happy! As it stands there's very little difference in the mentality for next week I would say only that they will start more defensive I would guess but either way we still have to beat them and I would have us still as favourite's to go through.


4.) 29 Apr 2016 16:26:57
i was a bit dissapointed last night. Mainly with how defensively we set up would have been nice to be a bit more attacking but i guess the thinking was get a 0-0 then win it at anfield. Far from over but a bit more of a difficult task especially if they get a away goal.

Milner - 7 Goals and 14 Assists.

Will some people now give the man some credit?

J H to the Izzo

1.) 21 Apr 2016 13:02:04
The money he's on mate. He don't need credit.


2.) 21 Apr 2016 13:45:32
90% are since the turn of the year though, I think the critisism for the first half of the season has been fair.


3.) 21 Apr 2016 13:51:00
I can't tell if Gazza meant that 'credit' pun or not haha.


4.) 21 Apr 2016 14:13:37
I agree with Benny. First half of the season he was dreadful and deserved all the slating he received. The last couple of months he has been one of the stand out performers. I hate to say it as I didn't understand why we signed him but credit where credit is due. Actually the same can be said of Allen.


5.) 21 Apr 2016 14:30:47
I did MK 😉.


6.) 21 Apr 2016 14:33:26
As i said on the live chat get someone to pass to him from the corner in open play the crossing is good.


7.) 21 Apr 2016 14:52:45
Yeah, he was poor before January. But his productive return is great.


8.) 21 Apr 2016 14:53:24
His productive return is great, and this is the Milner that I was hoping for when we signed him.


9.) 21 Apr 2016 15:11:45
He`s the highest earner at the club so does he want a cookie? He`s doing what he was brought here to do.


10.) 21 Apr 2016 14:27:13
He is and will never be a CM, Yet again booked early on and strange Everton never went after him. When one of your midfield partner picks up a yellow early it restrict the other game considerably.
What is the surprises in his crossing? His major contribution at City were his Crossing abilities.
Playing him in the middle and asking him to dictate the game is foolishness and I wouldn't do that in million years ( nothing against the player as he isn't that type )

Peave out.


11.) 21 Apr 2016 14:31:40
Natural

I still don't understand y did we signed him. If we only need a wide player I would have got one specialist wide player.


12.) 21 Apr 2016 15:31:43
I was made up that Milner should be offloaded in the summer, but his recent form has been encouraging and consistent so i hope he will agree to remain a valuable squad player next season. Not a first team starter for me though. Lallana on the other hand is one i would look to offload because he is 28 and will still fetch a decent price, and it looks like the club wants Rafa Silva who will be a major upgrade on Lallana and is a similar player playing in a similar position.


13.) 21 Apr 2016 15:34:30
I criticised him at the start of the season I freely admit that, so I am more than prepared to praise him when he is in good form, I would still ban him from taking corners as his crosses are better when in open play, a dead ball specialist he ain't but those stats and performances have been impressive. He did well to avoid a red card after being booked in the derby so early as well and his versatility is a great asset for us.


14.) 21 Apr 2016 16:26:48
He couldn't pick out a red shirt from 5 yards in the first part of the season, he was running about like a headless hen.


15.) 21 Apr 2016 16:27:01
Redondo, disagree completely mate - do we want our players to view playing for Liverpool as just doing what they've been paid to do?

If not then why should we judge them on that basis?


16.) 21 Apr 2016 17:43:40
He's come up a lot in my estimation, I had him tagged as a grafter who was all effort and bluster and made, at best, a passable winger, but his crossing from open play has been excellent lately and he's gone from being a joke to possibly being one of the signings of the season. Players are often criticised for being all tricks and neat play, but ultimately little end product. Milner's the opposite, he's not doing anything fancy, but is coming up with the goods.

I still don't think he can play central midfield in effective way at all though. His positioning's ineffective and he relies on running around a lot, his passing from there isn't anything special and he can't tackle. His assists aren't coming from central areas, they're coming from the right and left.

If you notice though, he spent most of last night's match between the right-hand channel and the right wing, despite, nominally speaking, being in central midfield alongside Lucas. So I suspect Klopp's spotted it, and is moving towards having Milner operate from the right, although not necessarily as a "traditional" winger. I think with a couple more fit center mids, Milner will play to the right of two more disciplined central midfielders. And he should play well there.


17.) 21 Apr 2016 18:00:53
Wasn't just he couldn't pick out a red shirt, he quite spectacularly played through balls for City players and almost cost us a game we dominated with them. Also for me the stats are hiding that he has still been poor at basics on numerous occasions. Watching the matches doesn't reflect the love in.


18.) 21 Apr 2016 18:41:54
He's not the highest earner btw.

Plus if you blend other signings' transfer fee and wages, the tco is much higher in many cases (dependent on length of stay) .

So glad we dropped Coutinho like most of you were asking.

Clueless.

J H to the Izzo

1.) 31 Oct 2015 20:45:47
Any need? Still wasn't top notch from him, altho that's a good thing as it will hopefully only get better from now and we have played all 5 of the top 6 last season away now only city to go. Hopefully we can kick on now and I for one still believe we will get top 4. Happy days onwards and upwards.


2.) 31 Oct 2015 23:10:23
J h have you seen the recent games? Done nothing but good for the lad as he needs the confidence.


3.) 01 Nov 2015 09:26:46
9 chances created in the league before today a player like Coutinho should be creating a lot more than that, but he seems to now be adding more goals to his game so hopefully he doesn't lose his creative side as he often looks to shoot now more often than not.

Morning guys.

Can anyone get a last minute spare ticket for the game tonight?

I'm heading up to Liverpool tomorrow to do the Ultimate Anfield Tour - so wouldn't mind getting a ticket to the game tonight also.

Thanks in advance.

1.) 22 Oct 2015 13:08:56
Think they are still on sale.


2.) 22 Oct 2015 13:33:40
game is a sell out, says on thre LFC website if you don't have a ticket, d not travel to the game.


 

 

22 Jul 2015 13:27:02
Just spoke to an Aston Villa season ticket holder in work. His exact words to me were:

"Liverpool fans don't know what player they're getting"

Very positive.

So we might not be signing Benteke ? God I hope we don't get agbonlaghor . Lol

He will be a great signing (if it happens) . Top player who will thrive under Klopp.

This guy (if indeed we buy him) will turn out to be a fantastic purchase. Speed, balance, poise, energy and intelligence.

Alongside the likes of Firmino, Coutinho and Sturridge, whilst balancing out the driving attributes of Henderson, Can and Milner, he will fit in just fine and be a real asset.

I'll put this out there.

If we sign Wijnaldum, he'll turn out to be one of the best signings of the season, if not, the.

I'd be gutted if Coutinho left - he's our best player. We can't keep letting go good players. Ever summer we seem to be selling our best, whatever the reason. Disappointing.

No, I don't think Sakho would be better than Lovren. I think he is a bit overated on here.

I think I can see a pattern with Matip and Lovren. Matip is the 'player' and Lovren is the guy to keep it simple. I think having both Sakho and Matip would result in having 2 'players' at the back - both trying to be inventive with the football, either in their passing or moving forward with the ball.

I think it's all about moving the football as quickly as possible and whereas Sahko has a better, more incisive passing range than Lovren, he also likes to dwell on the ball and over-elaborate with it. I think this would slow down the tempo of our play.

If you look at us this season, Hendo is a lot closer to the centrebacks, so the pass being played from defense to midfield is a much shorter, simpler pass, it's about recycling and continually moving the ball at speed. Our incisiveness is further up the field in the next phase. However, there's no doubt that Sakho's vertical passing would be advantageous, as he can find the front 5 quickly (although having Milner at left back allows this anyway) . I just think for this overall system, Lovren works better.

Why on earth would we want to split up a centreback partnership? A defence is typically is established by some consistency, especially where centrebacks are concerned. It should be Matip and Lovren, let them continue together and form an understanding that'll get better over time. Matip is 24, Lovren 26 (? ) - an excellent opportunity to build something good for a number of years.

That's nonsense Ed01 - 99% of my posts are about the team/ game/ strategy/ anything game related. I only post comments like that as Ed02 needs to be pulled up on it.

Everyone else can hang on his nutsack, but if wants to keep digging out this football club, I'll keep pulling him up about it.

J H to the Izzo

{Ed001's Note - what he needs is less knobheads getting their arse in their hand and posting sly digs. The nonsense is coming from you. Just stop it. If you don't like what he has to say, then don't read it, but don't waste my time any more with turning it into an argument because you are a child who can't take someone having a different point of view. If you could discuss it civilly, it would be fine, but you just make sly digs.}

Wow - thanks Zeddicus - really appreciate the breakdown. I was a little lost at first, but now that makes absolute sense. Silly me.

I was just highlighting the fact that Ed02 loves getting in the sly digs when he can. He loves highlighting our overpayments, the "I'm not talking about finance" purchases and then the exact breakdown of the Suarez deal (just so we realise we didn't get what we think we did)

Toodles.
