Hi Eds and Reds

I've been a Liverpool supporter for a good 40 years and been privileged to have seen many top class players and some great teams. Arguably our best ever league side was from 1978-79 which broke records for number of points, goals scored, goals conceded etc. I recently saw some footage of a match from that season which was made up of the following midfield; Jimmy Case, Terry McDermott, Graeme Souness and Ray Kennedy. Drool. What is evident is that all of them could tackle and put themselves about, all of them contributed defensively and they all contributed to the attack. All of those 4 players scored brilliant goals for us and I think they would walk into any Liverpool side of today. We used to attack as a team and defend as a team, the midfield players were fundamental to this ethos and they were coached to cover for each other in different areas of the pitch. The modern way of coaching seems to think that you have to have a defensive midfielder, a deep lying playmaker, an attacking midfielder etc. Do you think the game has improved tactically from the era of our great side of the late 70s or do you think tactics have become too complex? The Liverpool of today is vastly inferior to the Liverpool that I grew up watching week in week out. I can't help but feel that if we had really good coaching we could go forwards by going back to the Liverpool way of old i.e. pass, move, create space, move the ball quickly, doing the basic fundamentals and doing them well. Shankly, Paisley and Fagan were not complicated in their thinking and methods; they just kept it simple, bought or nurtured good players and coached them to do the simple things well. I was hopeful that our current manager had a philosophy of playing that would be applied at every level of the club, but there doesn't seem much cohesion from one season to the next, with too many changes in personnel and tactics. If we could coach the first team squad and u21s to play the same way it would make the transition for our talented youngsters into the senior squad much easier, keep continuity in the squad and probably save a lot of money on expensive transfers. A new player would come into the first team because he is better than the player currently in that position, not because you have decided to change the way in which we play. It's not exactly rocket science. Do you think it's realistic to go back to how we used to do things, or is this just a bit naive and the Liverpool way of old is merely an outdated way of thinking?

Jeffinho, Great Post in fact that good I read it a couple of times, you're old school like myself and have seen all the great Liverpool Teams, I first started going with me dad in 1963 stood on a stool at the back of the Annie road (aged 8)

Feel sorry for all our younger supporters who have never seen them lift the league or European cups , as I have said before the premier league has never been out of the cities of Manchester or London ( bar Blackburn 1995) and I can't see that ever altering unless we get a Billionaire and a Good Manager, in fact I think the next time we win the league I will be in Allerton Cemetry and there will be millions with me !!! as I said its going to YO-YO between LONDON and Manchester for many,many,many Decades to come.

MANY THANKS FOR A GREAT POST BROUGHT BACK MANY GREAT MEMORIES

didn't leeds win it?

The defensive midfielder is a trend in football

I remember the good old 4-4-2.

Memories.

I have seen every Liverpool side since the sixties. I would challenge your opinion regarding the 78-79 side being the best. Certainly they were probably the most clinical and efficient, but the best for sheer quality, swagger and entertainment has to be the Dalglish squad when he was player/manager and manager.

That truly was a magic red army.


5.) 07 Sep 2015 23:21:09
Sounds like I'm in the same boat age wise ;-). Without weighing in about the best side (i'm internally conflicted on that matter lol), i'm with Red Lenin about entertainment value of the 87/88 side. Unbelievable.

The 78/79 side was though more of a physically stronger side, that could also grind out a result, even when the champagne football didn't happen. Especially away from Anfield.

Leeds was the last winners before the premier league

Just wanted to express my sympathy and best wishes to Brian Hall's family following his passing aged 68. One of Shankly's unsung heroes and a wonderful, charming man who served LFC with class and dignity. A true ambassador for our club. RIP Brian.

Absolutely echo the sentiments. RIP Brian Hall.

{Ed001's Note - he was a lovely man who made all visitors to the club welcome. That is over and above his ability as a player for me, a sad loss.}


2.) 17 Jul 2015 13:25:09
I knew Brian was unwell recently but didn't realise it was so serious. Gutted he was a real gentleman a player who made a massive contribution to the cause and his passing should be recognised as the loss of a legend and a model professional. As you say a fantastic servant and ambassador who loved the club and its supporters. RIP Brian Hall YNWA


3.) 17 Jul 2015 14:06:10
RIP. Condolences to his family.

Brian hall was around when I took my son on his first an field tour seven years ago such a nice friendly man as well as a lfc legend. God bless.

Just read the momentous news today from the Hillsborough inquest. Hoping that this will be a huge step forward towards justice for the 96 and a degree of closure for their families. Love and peace to all those affected. YNWA.

On this momentous day, much love to the bereaved, traumatised and everyone affected by the Hillsborough disaster. May you find comfort in your distress and justice at last. I love Liverpool FC. JFT96, YWNA.

Provided it's not called off because of the rain, Liverpool u-21s are playing Chavski u-21s at Aldershot Town FC on Friday night, 14th Feb, ko 7.05pm. I will be going, hope some of you can make it. What a great way to spend Valentine's Night!

Don't know if it's true, just passing on some people are suggesting the person next to Jurgen is his son Marc, not Higuain's brother.

Max, it seems Ian Ayre misheard Jurgen during a recent team talk. Apparently Jurgen said "I want more, Emre". Ian's Harley is in for a service so he is now hurtling down the motorway on a moped to seal the deal for not a penny less than the full asking price.

What about Trent Alexander Arnold? Joe Gomez can cover right back, as can James Milner; Jon Flanagan might struggle to get back in Klopp's plans when he returns from loan. I think we have good cover for Clyne already at LFC, so right back wouldn't be high on my Christmas wish list for positions to cover. Merry Christmas Reds!

Hi Joe, welcome to the madhouse. In recent memory, it has to be Suarez - every time he got the ball you knew he could do something special, but two seasons ago when we nearly won the league he had us gasping at times with his skill and goals. The other player who immediately springs to mind is John Barnes, poetry in motion - he was incredible in that late 80s team. Although not the most popular with a lot of Reds, Michael Owen could create and score goals all by himself out of nothing, such as the 2001 FA Cup Final against Arsenal - with him at his peak we always had a chance. Gerrard was exciting to watch, someone to relate to as a local lad come good. King Kenny was majestic; he was simply the very best player in our greatest teams, with some truly great players alongside him. Kenny is rightly the most revered player of our club, but for me Luis Suarez is the most exciting Liverpool player I can remember, albeit for a relatively short time compared to the others mentioned.

Joe, Danny Ings is indeed a very good player. I was gutted about his injury as soon as Klopp started, and was delighted to see him get some game time against West Brom. Really looking forward to him playing and scoring goals for us next season.

Don't bold back AW say what you really feel haha! Totally agree, I also think Man Utd have been totally lacking in class the way they have treated Van Gaal, so it would seem that Utd and Jose are a perfect fit. Just waiting for the drama to unfold at the Theatre.
