Eds do u think morgan schneiderlin would make brilliant cover for lucas? And being that he is only 23 would be a great player in a few seasons?

Wud southampton be willing to sell to anyone? {Ed001's Note - yes, but no they would not be looking to sell.}

Jak

1.) Was there anything genuine in the Biteco link, the young lad playing in the Brazilian League? Looked a very good prospect from what i've seen of him in highlights on the net. {Ed002's Note - One for the search engine.}


2.) Not a chance of us letting him go at the moment. You will also need a shed load if you make an offer. He is very good and I would put money on the fact that he will at some point go to a big club possibly Spain/ Germany.

Just check out his game stats

Love the way that you have to register to leave a message for a 'big club' on the site.

I was talking to a couple of lads during the weeks who seemed to think that Henderson may be dropped into centre half for the new season with Keita and Fabiano coming in. I haven’t thought of it or how he would do there but what’s your opinion guys do u think he could play there? We seen Klopp put even wijinaldum and can there before and Henderson is a tall strong lad who has had to adapt his game to incorporate more defensive duties and put a defensive head on so maybe reading the game would come naturally now to him from that position, and you could still have your captain in the team and more cover at cb?

Jak

1.) 14 Jun 2018 11:42:48
More likely to be dropped in majority of games and fizzled out as captain eventually. That's football.


2.) 14 Jun 2018 11:56:26
Not for me mate.


3.) 14 Jun 2018 12:09:21
I am far from certain Hendo is simply going to be dropped from the majority of our games LFC8, I think it is more likely he won't play more than one game a week due to his injury history, as Ed001 has suggested previously, hence the strengthening of our midfield this summer. I was under the impression that Klopp loves Hendo.


4.) 14 Jun 2018 12:49:36
At his age I can’t see him being happy being fizzled out as captain and dropped for majority of games, especially if another attacking mid comes in. It’s a strange one for him, do you think we could see him leave the club soon if this was to become the case?


5.) 14 Jun 2018 13:09:29
Fitness aside, he'll be a regular starter in midfield next season.


 

 

13 Jun 2018 11:55:04
For a bit of fun and away from transfers, it would be interested to hear what people top Liverpool XI would be based on players they have actually seen play. I’m still quite young so I’m only thinking back as far back as early 2000s when i really started watching football a lot.
It doesn’t matter how long they player was with us either, just on form and how much u like / liked them

Gk - Reina
Not really a tough decision considering we haven’t had many greats and for a few seasons with us he was top class!

Right back - was tempted to go for finnan as I always thought of him as reliable but I’m going to go with Trent out of loyalty to the current squad and the fact that he’s a local lad and has had one of the best debut seasons for us that I can remember!

Cb - again a few tough ones, obviously loved Carra and Agger but I’m going to go for hyypia and Van Dijk as I think they’d be a killer pairing!

Left back - again was a big fan of Aurelio when fit, and am loving the start Robertson has had and think he could be our long term fix there but I’m going for riise for that rocket of a left foot and always remember him as sound enough defensively

Midfield - going for a trio of Gerrard, Alonso and Coutinho
I think that midfield picks itself for me and the players I’ve seen live and seen enough of.

Up front - salah, Torres, Suarez
Again for the timeframe that I’ve been a proper fan no one has come close to these three and with all them on their best form in a red shirt that would be a serious amount of goals

So team in full
Reina
Trent hyypia Van Dijk Riise
Gerrard Alonso Coutinho
Salah Torres Suarez

Interesting to hear some others thoughts on players I haven’t seen live so don’t feel like I can add in and how they compare to our current squad or who you would include!

Jak

1.) 13 Jun 2018 12:11:23
for me can't have suarez or coutinho in any team I just cant
call me childish but I just cant
swap mane for Suarez and coutinho for gary mac or Maxi Rodriguez
also Babbel has to get in at right back for me.


2.) 13 Jun 2018 12:18:03
Nice post Jak.

I'm a bit older than you, started supporting around 84, and remember the teams from 86 onwards.

I'd have Brucie in goal, one of the most natural and charismatic keepers I have ever seen. Clemence was probably better, but he left before I started following the team, so to stick to the criteria, it has to be Bruce.

RB has to be Rob Jones - he would have slashed the number of caps Neville (*spit*) got for England if he had stayed fit.

CB - I've always loved the way Hansen glided around the pitch, so he's in, and I would also pick Phil Neal - no nonsense.

LB - tricky one. Always had a soft spot for Bjornebye, but its a toss up between Nicol and Riise. I'll go for Nicol as being a bit more rounded.

CMs - Gerrard and Alonso, but I was to late for Souness as I never saw him play in red. I loved Ronnie Whelan, and Digger could play back here, but I'm going to pick the Danish scouser - Jan Molby!

Forwards - Rushie and SKK, obvs, and I'll throw Salah into the mix above Suarez and Fowler, although its a close run thing!

So

Brucie
Nicol Hansen Neal Jones
Alonso Gerrard Molby
SKK Rush Salah

With a very strong subs bench!


3.) 13 Jun 2018 12:29:33
Have done this a few times but I always enjoy it. For me:

Reina
Babbel-Carragher-Hyppia-Riise
Alonso-Gerrard
Salah-Couts-Suarez
Torres.


4.) 13 Jun 2018 12:30:17
Oops, got my left and right mixed up, but you get the gist :)


5.) 13 Jun 2018 12:34:55
Dudek, Hyppia, Finnan, Traore, Riise, Carra, Garcia, Gerrard, Alonso, Smicer and Baros. Maybe ignoring Harry Kewell this time 😉.


6.) 13 Jun 2018 12:44:58
like Zeddicus I’ve been supporting since 86 I’d have to have John Barnes in my team, awesome player. Post 86 I’m not sure I’d go for Sir Kenny but certainly would pre ‘86:
Brucie - other than Reina no other competitor after 86
Rob Jones - what a player he could have been
Hansen - nuff said
Carragher - tough call to leave out Hyypia
Staunton - my only “problem” position to fill with quality

Gerrard and Alonso - again too late for Souness

Suarez Beardsley Barnes
Fowler - tough call leaving out Rush

Some true Liverpool legends not in there.


7.) 13 Jun 2018 12:46:40
Reina
Finnan, Carragher, Agger, Riise
Alonso, Henderson
Gerrard, Firmino, Mane
Torres

Found it really hard to pick between Gerrard/ Salah, Mane/ Coutinho, and Suarez/ Torres. In the end I went with my favourites.


8.) 13 Jun 2018 13:02:20
For me Barnes has to be in any team - ridiculous talent!


9.) 13 Jun 2018 13:16:44
Riena
Babbel, Carra, VVD, Riise
Alonso, Stevie G
Bobby
Salah, Rush, Barnes

Wow what a team!


10.) 13 Jun 2018 13:24:09
I've supported since 98 but only really remember since 01 so for me:

Reina
Finnan, Hypia, Agger, Aurelio
Mascherano, Gerrard, Alonso
Salah, Suarez, Mane

A few players like RIise, Carra, Hendo, Coutinho and Firmino very unlucky to miss out (and if i was building an actual team reather than my favourites, they would probably make it in)


11.) 13 Jun 2018 13:38:35

First post so ill keep it brief. I can NOT believe we ever had Konchesky in our squad. The days of seeing him Poulsen and Downing are almost odd to reflect on today.

So hard to leave suarez and torres out Beardsley too.


20.) 13 Jun 2018 21:00:08
It has to be Rob Jones at right back. What a fantastic full back he was. Such a shame about his injuries.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think you understood the question mate..


 

 

17 Apr 2018 10:02:59
Going off a post I read from other user, I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on their team of the year this season? I had a think about it this morning and it's difficult in a few positions to choose but I'll post my team below and would love to hear the others posters teams too! This is purely opinion stuff!

De Gea
Walker. Tarkovski. Sánchez. Robertson.
De Bruyne. Kanté. Erikson
Salah Aguero Sane
.
It was tough to choose a few positions there and I think special mentions should go to the likes of ;
Ederson in goal (for how he has come straight in and cleaned up the mess Bravo left and adapted so well to city's style) .
Also to TAA at right back particularly towards the end of the season!
Ben Mee too for his partnership with Tarkovski and the position they have gotten Burnley into!
David Silva as i absolutely have loved him for years and think he finally got some recognition this year! Was hard to leave him out but wanted erikson in there!
And sterling and Kane up top for hitting the amount of goals Kane has and for sterlings overall improvement and turning into a player I didn't think he actually could when he was still with us!

What do you all think, who would u change in that team?

Jak

1.) 17 Apr 2018 10:17:27
Sanchez as in the utterly hopeless Tottenham CB.?


2.) 17 Apr 2018 10:21:15
Agree with most of that team. Only changes I’d make is Walker and Aguero replaces by Valencia and Kane. To be fair Valencia hasn’t been great but I can’t think of any other right backs who have been consistent nevermind outstanding. Gomez and Trent have both been excellent but have shared game time.

Walker imo is one of the most overrated footballers on the planet, with his mate Danny Rose not far behind.


3.) 17 Apr 2018 10:27:54
You have to find room for Firmino in that front three surely?


4.) 17 Apr 2018 10:36:40
Haven't had a good think who replaces him but Walker out. So overrated. every time I see that clueless look on his face, he's always a mistake waiting to happen. Liverpool showed up just how poor he is.
Silva has to be in too. In fact the city 3 with fernandinho have had a better year than kante and erikson.
Don't like Kane but he's been the best striker this year. Aguero by far the best striker in the league but has been rotated and injured too much again. Whos Sanchez? Of Spurs? . woaw.


5.) 17 Apr 2018 10:43:45
Personally I'd have TAA instead of Walker. Silva instead of Erikson and Firmino instead of Aguero.


6.) 17 Apr 2018 10:44:37
I think I'm shocked to see Sanchez in a team of the season, and fairly surprised to see Kante there after an unremarkable season by him at best.


7.) 17 Apr 2018 10:47:50
De Gea
Walker Baily Alderweireld Robertson
Kante KDB Silva
Salah Kane Sane.


8.) 17 Apr 2018 10:50:51
What is it with the love for Sanchez at spurs? He's full of mistakes and has to constantly use his pace to bail him out as he is often out of position. Look at the city game at the weekend 1st 2 goals see him chasing jesus then sterling as both ran off him. And at Anfield he was terrible and vertonghen was constantly having to bail him out. Just my opinion.


9.) 17 Apr 2018 11:00:24
De Gea - once again helped United to finish about 3 or 4 places above where their football deserves to be.

Alexander-Arnold - I can't think of any outstanding candidate here. So I've pick him based on him being 19 and as good as anyone.

Azpilicueta - Chelsea are the lowest scorers in the top 6 but defence kept them competitive. Plus lots of assists from centre back.

Mee - how on earth are a team with 33 goals in 33 games, 7th? Because they have an incredible defence. Great captain too.

Young - again, no outstanding candidates. I opted for Young though because he has changed position, and revived his career.

Milivojovic - the rock at the heart of an amazing Crystal Palace revival. He's scored penalty after penalty in high pressure situations.

De Bruyne - more goals created than anyone else and puts in an almighty shift. Maybe Salah's only rival for POTY.

Silva - makes the best team in the country tick. Alongside De Bruyne they have been phenomenal. Like a fine wine he just gets better.

Salah - He will finish the season totally eclipsing everyone else in the scorers chart and has had a hand in 53 goals (40 goals, 13 assists) .

Vardy - for his clinical efficiency. Vardy has 17 goals from just 60 shots. His first-time left foot volley is easily goal of the season as well.

Sane - What a season this guy has had. Blistering pace and power. The only player who managed to stop him all season is in this team!

Manager: David Wagner. Seriously, how has he kept that Huddersfield squad up? I can't believe it and the more I think about the more it amazes me.

Honourable mentions for Pope, Vertonghen, Cork, Eriksen, Firmino, Sterling and Aguero. All arguably deserved a place. They make up a strong 7 man bench instead!


10.) 17 Apr 2018 11:02:12
De Gea
Valencia, Otamendi, Azpilicueta, Alonso
De Bruyne, Erikson, D. Silva
Salah, Kane, Sane

De Gea is an easy choice, he has been the best goalkeeper for a few years now.

Otamendi has fallen off lately but has definitely been the most consistent along with Azpilicueta.

Valencia has done a lot for Utd, more than walker has for City in my opinion but its close.

Alonso has been brilliant for most of this season, Robertson is close but he spent the beggining of the season benched by Moreno.

De Bruyne is easily the best midfielder this year, followed by Erikson and D. Silva. I don't think Kante has had the same effect as he did last year.

Sane has been the best left winger by a long way.

You can't take away from Kane that he is the best striker in the league, i think if Aguero could have stayed fit then it may be different but he hasn't so Kane pips it for me purely because of the goals (-1 that belonged to Erikson ofc) .

Salah is the pick of the lot, PL POTY for sure and in contention for the Ballon D'or too at this rate. If he manages to continue his form into the Semi's and Final of the Champions league helping us to lift the cup then i think it would say a lot about the bias towards spanish players if he didn't win it.


11.) 17 Apr 2018 11:04:25
I'm assuming you're talking only about the EPL, so my selection would be:

De Gea
Valencia, Azpilicueta, Vertonghen, Alonso
De Bruyne, Kante, Silva
Salah, Aguero, Sane.


12.) 17 Apr 2018 11:10:54
Just for everyone picking Kane, he has 24 goals, yes. But He's had 165 shots. That is 1 in 7.

He's been embarrassing this season in more ways than one.

Salah is hardly clinical, but his 30 in 128 shots is basically 1 in 4.


13.) 17 Apr 2018 11:04:43
I'm not sure I understand all the Tarkovski hype. He seems to do all the Hollywood stuff, but then so did Keane. I think Mee is the one that holds it all together. The best defenders are the ones that are already in place and so it doesn't seem that they're doing anything special. If you're out of position and have to recover it may look like a cracking tackle or header but be in the right position and you don't have to go to the trouble. I think it was ED001 who said Tarkovski was a penalty waiting to happen, so when Italy got a penalty against England late on, conceded by Tarkovski, I did have a wry smile on my face. Anyway, I won't be going over the rest of your team that thoroughly, just thought I'd mention it :)

Team of the year is always really difficult because each of those players has been played in a different system. Young looked fantastic against Salah, but they were so compact that he didn't have to be as aware or work as hard as Miguel Britos, for example. Young succeeded, Britos failed (spectacularly) . The systems played a massive part.

You have to decide if it's the players that have played the best or who would play the best together.

Mine is from the latter; De Gea, Valencia, Mee, Azpilicueta, (left back is hard as no one has stood out) Robertson, Kante, Silva, De Bruyne, Salah, Firmino, Sane (sorry Sadio)


14.) 17 Apr 2018 11:28:27
DDG/ Pope (can’t decide)
Trent, Mee, Alderweireld, Robbo
KDB, Silva, Eriksen
Salah, Firmino, Sane.


15.) 17 Apr 2018 11:38:09
Really good post that, wellrednuckledragger.

Your team is not too dissimilar to mine either. Only 4 variants.


16.) 17 Apr 2018 11:38:25
Anyone got any shouts for team of flops/ poor seasons?
Hart,
Mustafi, Ashley Williams, Gary Cahill, Callum Chambers
Pogba, Bakayoko, Drinkwater, Renato Sánches
Bony, Alexis Sanchez.


17.) 17 Apr 2018 12:09:16
Flops? God so many! Based on either what they cost OR were bought to do and how badly they failed to live up to it:

Hart
Zapacosta, Lindelof, Keane, Kolasinac
Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Barkley
Iheanacho, Defoe, Sturridge.


18.) 17 Apr 2018 12:55:18
Some good shouts on there too Mk, Michael Keane is a good pick actually.


19.) 17 Apr 2018 12:55:19
Flops: I've gone for top 6 teams as its fairer to judge players who are playing badly around better team mates.

Mignolet
Zappacosta, Luiz, Lindelof, Monreal
Sissoko, Bakayoko, Xhaka
Lamella, Lacazette, Sanchez.


20.) 17 Apr 2018 13:13:00

Kante (he is everywhere)
KDB (second best player after Salah)
Silva (criminally under rated)

Team of flops. simple Arsenal. 33points off City.30 above West Brom.


25.) 17 Apr 2018 15:37:02
Goalie is De Gea no better in the league.

Azpilicueta - Chelsea have been crap but Dave is great.

Hegazi - WB might be in a dog fight but he has more tackles and clearances than most and adapted very quickly. 242 clearances over 50 tackles to date!

Ben Mee - one half of Burnleys great partnership

Robertson - took a while to get in but great since and consistent better than any other LB.

Ndidi - can't fault the young lad dynamic and wins the ball a lot in fact more than any other midfielder this season.

De Bruyne - Needs no intro

Hazard - Still 12 goals this season in a poor Chelsea side

Son - underrated player and key for Tottenham

Salah - leagues highest goal scorer and potential record breaker

Firmino - Offers more than just goals and still have plenty of them anyway. The most complete forward in the league.


26.) 17 Apr 2018 16:04:41
People choosing Trent for team of the year need to give their heads a wobble, they were probably the people calling him crap a few weeks ago.
People just love setting these youngsters up for a fall, he looks a great prospect and has had a good season but he’s certainly not the best right back in the league which in my opinion is Walker by some distance.


27.) 17 Apr 2018 16:26:39
I don't think either of the Burnley centre backs are exceptional, Burnley are just very well organised and play a system that they are all used to and well drilled in. I would say that if the manager was someone like Mark Hughes, it would all go to pot.

For me the team of the season is
GK De Gea
RB Walker (because there is no one else really)
CB Alderweireld
CB Lascelles
LB Robertson
CM De Bruyne
CM Fernandino
CM Silve
FW Mane
FW Firmino
FW Salah

I've stuck with the City Midfield because when they are firing on all cylinders they are very difficult to play against. Same as I believe that our front three can also be unplayable and have been consistent as a unit. Walker literally only gets in because of an absence of other candidates and although I think next year TAA will be there, he isn't quite yet.


28.) 17 Apr 2018 18:56:28
De Gea - By far the best goalie in the world
Azpilicueta - Has played as a right sided centre half mostly but is so good he could play anywhere in the back 4
Mee - The rock of a very impressive Burnley defence
Van Dijk - Like Mee, not necessarily the best on pure ability in the league but his influence since joining is overwhelmingly positive
Alonso - Close between Robbo and Alonso but he delivers with more consistency in his free kicks and assists, as a wing back is quality
Ndidi - While Kante is the best in the world in his position, if he had played to his full potential he would be here. Chelsea’s position is an indicator of his and the rest of the squads downing of tools. His stats are impressive and he is maturing every season
De Bruyne - World class, benefits from Silvas excellence but some of his passes and assists this season have been some of the best I’ve ever seen
Silva - The best player the English game has seen since Ronaldo left the league. Criminally underrated and a true legend of the game. Like Barcelona and iniesta, city’s identity revolves entirely around him. When he leaves they will fall apart
Sane - While Sterling has been impressive sane is much more complete and mature with his all round play, he is Ryan giggs but with more goals
Firmino - Another criminally underrated player, and like silva, defines how we play. Reminds me of Dennis Bergkamp a lot. Close one between him Kane and Aguero but they are just goalscorers, Firmino is so much more
Salah - Nothing that can be said about him that hasn’t already been said

Honourable mentions to Pope, Alderweireld, Kante, Walker, Robertson, Doucoure, Richarlison, Matic, Kane, Aguero, Sterling, Eriksen and Son.


29.) 17 Apr 2018 19:47:11
Sanchez is not even the best CB at Spurs so how can he be in the Team of the season? I can name 5 CB's who would deserve to be in the team of the season more than Sanchez. VVD, Mee, Azpilicueta (in a back 3), and of course Toby and Vertonghen.

My team of the season:
De Gea (honourable mention pope)
Valencia (honourable mention Trent)
Me (honourable mention Azpilicueta)
Vertonghen (honourable mention VVD)
Robbo (honourable mention young)
Ndidi (honourable mention Doucoure )
KDB (honourable mention Eriksen)
Silva (honourable mention Ox)
Salah (honourable mention sterling)
Firmino honourable mention Kane)
Sane (honourable mention Son)
I think it is hard to pick the team of the year this year. There is maybe some bias in some decisions (Firmino or Kane was 50/ 50) and then Ox, he’s there because he’s improved so much as a player this season.
If De Gea was at city then I’d pick pope over him but because De Gea save Utd at least 12 points a season he’s there for me.


34.) 17 Apr 2018 23:45:04
In fairness sanchez (cb) has put in some fantastic performances in the last couple of months. I think he is getting better too.

He looked pretty shocking early on but has turned a corner I feel. Would hate to play against him.


35.) 17 Apr 2018 23:47:49
Cheers, MK. Fullbacks were hardest choice for me. No one has particularly stood out at right or left so I went for the same rationale as you, just the other way round.

On Milivojevic, I did consider him and have been impressed with him this season - when I have seen him. He has been very important for Palace's revival and just seems made for the Premier League. Being a solid penalty taker is always a bonus seeing as so many people seem to miss them nowadays.

I'd have Sane Kane Mane as my front 3, just to cause confusion with pronunciation 😂😂. I'd bet Kane gets pronounced wrong at least once.

Yeah, massive shout out to David wagner. Unreal if he keeps Huddersfield up. Seems a nice guy too. I've been hoping they stay up since they best utd. And since I found out he is klopp big friend.


 

 

Jurgen Klopp's signings so far for Liverpool FC

{Ed's Note - Jak has posted a new article entitled, Jurgen Klopp's signings so far for Liverpool FC

I agree with a lot of this article particularly Klavan who I think is the sort of player every squad needs but there are a few points I have issues with:

Karius - Not sure how much more he could have done to win you over since he came into the team, I think he has done very well, I would be happy if he is our first choice goalkeeper next season.

VVD - 'we all wanted him'. Actually lots of people on this site didn't want him, apparently he was overrated and lazy with a bad attitude.

Solanke - I agree I am not overly impressed with him so far but the lad is only 20, too early to call him a poor signing. When Harry Kane was 20 he was on loan at Leicester, some players take time to develop.


2.) 14 Apr 2018 06:34:24
I think its a little harsh calling some of them poor signings. Yeah sure a few of them haven't added anything to the quality of our team but they haven't been a step backwards either. To me a poor signing would be someone who has hasn't worked at all. Like Bakayoko at Chelsea, or Markovic or Aspas.


3.) 14 Apr 2018 09:19:02
Solanke is not even as good as origi imo and even he has been dire this season. He may improve, but i see why chelsea were holding him back from the first team now. He is just not ready yet. I honestly see more potential in rhian brewster than solanke.

Hopefully he will knuckle down and prove me completely wrong.


4.) 14 Apr 2018 10:08:49
It's a coming - you'll see all the potential in brewster until he starts making the first team squad at 19, scores hardly any goals and then you'll write him off like you're doing now with solanke :p

for me, when it comes to kids it is far more important to focus on what they do well currently, and the strengths they have that can develop areas of their game for improvement. I mean we need kids in the club, and it is unrealistic that we will have 2 senior players for every position in our squad. so we have to create an environment that supports the kids to develop.


5.) 14 Apr 2018 10:54:58
Faith, it cuts both ways, yes we have to give youth a chance but they still need to be assessed. Ultimately they exist to improve the team, if they're not doing that then they have to move on. Origi had his chance, didn't make the grade and was moved on. Solanke still has time but sooner or later he needs to start benefiting the team, otherwise what's the point?

Well now that the dust has settled I think it’s safe to post about last night! Absolutely brilliant performance, there was Liverpool and Klopp at their best in the first half and then a little bit of mourinho and United at their best in the second half which I have envied a bit in the past. Got our emphatic lead and then held it, it’s a game of 180 minutes so I have no problem that we sat back a bit after punishing them with 3 goals in the first 45.

To a man the team were outstanding. I too was a bit worried for taa and in the opening minutes thought my fears were coming thru but he hardly put a foot wrong and whenever he did he recovered so well! Sane has been great this year and he seen plenty of the ball last night but cudnt get anything past taa and Lovren on that side.

Which brings me to Lovren, one of his best games I’ve ever seen him play for the club! Mistake free, so composer, no panic, always stayed on his feet, and read the game so well! Obviously it helps him being beside better players but I thought he shone brightest arguably in the whole team yesterday!

Everyone else was great but I think special mentions should be given to Milner too for his dirty and unselfish work in midfield which can go unnoticed when u score 3 goals against city!

Vitally important now in the second leg to keep it tight for the first half an hour at least, frustrate them again and then when they start to panic a bit and throw more forward hit them on the break and score that goal away which could prove so important!

Any news on salah Ed’s? Have you heard any update I missed?

Jak

{Ed002's Note - What news are you expecting on Salah? I expect he is likely still in bed somewhere, resting and that later he and the rest of the players will go to Melwood for a briefing. That is what typically happens after a game. Am I missing something.}


1.) 05 Apr 2018 10:08:22
Ok if u want to be like that and assume u don’t know what I’m talking about, perhaps I should have asked what do u reckon on the injury? Did it look like one that could keep him out? Did Klopp or anyone mention anything after the game? Like I said did I miss anything.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs do not make immediate statements about injuries. As I said he will likely still be in bed. If he has an injury that needs attention then someone will take a look later today. If there is any swelling and he needs a scan then that won't happen until the swelling goes down - so it would not be today. The club are pretty good with the press releases covering injured players and if there is anything to say it will be said then. Please don't expect any statements within the hours following the game.}


2.) 05 Apr 2018 10:23:30
Ok thank u.

{Ed001's Note - I have explained this over and over, people need to be patient, it is not immediate. For starters, if a scan is needed then it has to wait for swelling to recede, which usually takes around 48 hours.}


3.) 05 Apr 2018 10:52:18
Taa, who I worried about before the match was top notch, completely owned erm sane. Great match for the wee man, showed us why he is midfield bound.


4.) 05 Apr 2018 10:57:46
I wish my groin swellings lasted 48 hours ed. 😂.

{Ed001's Note - Ed025 has pills for that mate....}


5.) 05 Apr 2018 11:36:43
There won't be any news immediately on this, after the game Salah is supposed to have said it was fine, just a stretch, but you know what? I think we can actually enjoy this for the moment. Still a lot to do, but we have given ourselves an incredible chance in the second leg which is more than I expected, the first ten minutes I thought City were on top and it would not go our way, but after we rode that out and nullified both Silva and De Bruyne then it changed the complexion of the game. Shame that Henderson won't be available, but if Can is fit and steps up then it will be fine.

Even if klopp was a fan, which not many managers seem to be due to lack of interest. for the 60m arsenal are seemingly prepared to offer, is he going to come and sit on the bench for that fee or is he going to displace firmino who at the minute is having his best season?

Playing football for a living each week for one of the most successful teams ever on a very healthy salary is seen as being held hostage now is it. {Ed002's Note - It does if he is desperate to leave.}

Ed02 why do you keep on bringing up death threats to Karius? He’s one of 30 odd players in the squad, are people now allowed to share an opinion or critism on the site about him anymore or u will just keep bringing up death threats that were spouted out by a minority of idiots? People give opinion on lots of players, saying you want an upgrade on a position isn’t hate or abuse, just like when people used to say they wanted a new cb instead of Lovren, or wanted a new left back instead of Moreno, that’s how football works.

Jak

{Ed002's Note - Why do many Liverpool supporters constantly trash their own players (past present and potential future players) whilst worshipping trash like Suarez? Why didn't these supporters take the hint when Klopp came out publically and said the abuse of the players on social media had really gotten to two of the players? What will happen to Karius if he stays (which obviously he shouldn't) when he makes the first tiny error? Spewing the hate seems to be the order of the day - then why not spew it at the man who spent the club's money to buy him, and now seemingly wants to continue using him. What nobody needs is you trying to justify the relentless hate of Liverpool players.}

The original poster never mentioned death threats or abuse. It’s a small minority of idiots who would stoop to that level and frankly the world gets them idiots in every section of it both in and away from football and clubs. However there is nothing wrong with the posters opinion that Karius isn’t good enough, I agree with him, I’ve watched more than enough of him and people saying get behind him are the same people who will be annoyed (and rightly so) when he has poor games. Our squad is strong, if we could make one signing that would really improve our team it would be a goalkeeper, there’s no denying that fact and it’s ok to say without people assuming they’re throwing abuse or death threats at Karius.
