Benteke injured again - knee ligaments apparently. JK not having the best of breaks is he.

KBL

1.) 28 Oct 2015 00:20:10
Oh great. Another injury.

Knee, eh? He's had knee problems before -- back in 2013/14. In fact, Benteke has a history of injuries, period. Wonder, do we have another Sturridge on our hands? Glorious.

Give me Firmino up front in Bournemouth, please.


2.) 28 Oct 2015 03:05:53
Could be back for Chelski according to physio room.


3.) 28 Oct 2015 04:44:38
Firmino
Ibe, Coutinho, Teixeira
Chirivella, (? )

Would a be pleasant sight.


4.) 28 Oct 2015 08:50:35
If you had to play a random player upfront i would like to see how Ibe went with the simple instructions to run in behind and stretch them. He is strong and for me gets a little confused in his decision making at the moment playing wide.


5.) 28 Oct 2015 13:19:31
Id like to see Sinclair given shot tonight - Maybe even with Firmino up top.


6.) 28 Oct 2015 15:29:35
Possibility that Benteke actually requires surgery!


7.) 29 Oct 2015 12:38:32
Nothing wrong with his decision making when he made that feinted through ball to Randall! Olè!

3 wins in our last 9 games - says it all really. I suppose IF we beat the mighty Fulham at the weekend we'll be a great team again and genuine title contenders.

In my opinion we have played really well in only 3/4 games and have escaped with wins against teams who should have beat us (e. g. Huddersfield) . We will struggle to qualify out of this group.

Call me negative or whatever, but the truth is since our great start to the season the wheels seem to have come off now.

KBL

1.) 06 Nov 2018 22:51:02
Give your head a wobble.


2.) 06 Nov 2018 23:00:07
I agree the wheels have came off slightly. but we're still undefeated and in the race for premier league.
we will still qualify for knockouts of champs league and we will either win the prem or at least pish city to the last few weeks.

Have faith mate.


3.) 06 Nov 2018 23:22:21
I think we should all take a breath. I didn't watch the game, but red stars record at home is pretty good. To say the wheels have come off is a bit of an over statement. Qualification is still in our hands with 1 home game to play. Whilst we haven't been playing blistering football, we are unbeaten in the league having played city, Chelsea, arsenal and spurs. No one was calling for the "brain" before tonight and no one will be when we win next.


4.) 06 Nov 2018 23:31:26
Can't believe people think we will win the league.

Just watch the performances and that should answer the question.

Red star conceded 10 in the last 2 games in CL, and have never won a CL game.

{Ed025's Note - not great dean i admit, poor performance but still well in the mix mate..


5.) 06 Nov 2018 23:43:55
KBL if you are going to be negative, at least be accurate. We have lost a measly 3 out of 16 games (10 wins and 3 draws) and the wheels are falling off? How do you work that out exactly? I suggest you take a deep breathe and tone down the negativity levels a couple of notches cos tho, we are in a bit of a sticky patch (hmm, pretty sure no other team in history has had that), we are still in control of our destiny in the CL group and in the PL. Oh and btw should be beat Fulham, we will NOT be a great team again as that is not how that works. It would only mean we won a game and hope to win the next one. That is all.

{Ed025's Note - im with you brover..


6.) 06 Nov 2018 23:53:09
The wheels have not come off.
Klopp wants to win something this year. He wants to win either the league or champions league. He wants us to stay competitive without blowing a gasket by March.
He wants to peak in spring when all the medals are handed out. You don’t win anything for topping the CL group. Second is sufficient, it’s all about progressing.
This defeat has not derailed our season, it’s essentially a game we could afford to lose.
Am I happy about it? No!
Would I rather lose this game than a league game? Absolutely!

{Ed025's Note - you cant be happy ron, but the one thing i will agree on is that it is still in your own hands mate..


7.) 07 Nov 2018 01:46:45
Ron what if we don't Win anything playing cautiously?


8.) 07 Nov 2018 06:21:32
We don’t have a divine right to win but Klopp is trying to give us the best chance.


9.) 07 Nov 2018 06:29:00
I don't think it's a game we could afford to lose when we play Psg and Napoli next. For me it was vital we won.


10.) 07 Nov 2018 07:40:59
Its not just the loss! But the way we have been playing recently!


11.) 07 Nov 2018 10:55:42
As I wrote above the wheels 'seem' to have come off. AF is right - it's the way we have been playing that worries me.

I have been on here after most games we have managed to win even though we didn't play particularly well and read all the comments about how it's a good sign to win even though the performances were not up to scratch and when we click etc, etc.

We are still waiting to click in my opinion. We are not playing well either. Our midfield is being outplayed almost every game, and we are for some reason playing a lot more long ball football. This is clear to see.

For me last night was the game to win in this group at this stage because the last 2 games will be very tough to get through.

Ron - I think Klopp has wanted to win something every season he has been here. He didn't take us to 3 finals not wanting us to win!

I remember you losing your mojo after one of the recent derby games because of Klopp's tactics etc., so I am allowed to show concern right now over what I am seeing from us on the pitch. When was the last time any of us has come on this forum after a gae and praised the way we have played this season? Maybe 3/ 4 times out of 16 matches.


12.) 07 Nov 2018 14:51:52
All well and good saying that Klopp is trying to manage us through till the "crucial" section of the season but what if we AREN'T in the running by that point? We have very difficult games to get out the UCL group now against Napoli and Psg away - never mind thinking about the run in at the end of the season.


13.) 07 Nov 2018 17:03:19
That’s the point George, we are in the running.


14.) 07 Nov 2018 20:30:32
George, and what if we ARE? See how that works? We simply don't know so you and I are going to have to wait and see what happens in the hope that things change for the better. Also, you are aware that LFC can get 95 points in the PL and still not win it, right? Yeah, that is what we are up against with City so as Ron said, we have no devine right to win as much as a sausage. You are going to have to fight for the right to first off, compete and then a chance to win. Ron is speaking a lot of sense and I agree with him. Cheers, mate!


 

 

01 Nov 2018 00:07:00
Well guys, just 1 home game in the whole of November, so a tough month for the boys.

Should be a cracker on Saturday as Arsenal appear to be bang in form.

How do you think this one be go?

KBL

1.) 01 Nov 2018 06:15:41
Hoping for a good game, winning this game could be massive boost against an in-form side.

My only hope is that it doesn't become a game like City, both teams were not willing to lose more than wanting to win.


2.) 01 Nov 2018 07:02:20
Looking forward to it.
They’ve just had a wobble against Palace and the ref saved them.
We’ve just thumped Cardiff
It will be another good test for the defence and Becker.


3.) 01 Nov 2018 07:06:58
I expect a close game but we will attack them and we'll win it, no doubts.


4.) 01 Nov 2018 09:15:29
I am super confident about beating Arsenal. They have a few injuries at the back and they will try to attack us. We are just regaining our form.

I predict 4-1.


5.) 01 Nov 2018 09:31:07
Why do I think Emery will do a pep and change the way he plays on Saturday
I think know if they come all guns blazing they get tonked but they may get a draw if they are little more solid
Hope Gini plays again as he has been one of the best players recently in the team.


6.) 01 Nov 2018 09:31:27
Once over, Arsenal used to run the legs off Liverpool.
They were just too mobile, athletic and quick.
Now it’s the other way round and I’m hoping for three points to be honest.


7.) 01 Nov 2018 13:08:37
You and me both Mark, its rare we agree lol but I completely agree with your post mate. I don't think they can match us, I really don't. As I said previously, I expect a close game but can their defence handle our attack? No chance, we'll get them dealt with no problem.


8.) 01 Nov 2018 21:24:58
On paper and player for player, we are better than Arsenal in every way, shape or form. They have been lucky to have survived their firt half performances where the opposition should have put them away for good BUT did not take enuff of their chance vs that awful defence they have. If they play that way against us and we take our chances then, they will get pummeled like we always pummel them under Klopp. However, the game is on their patch and they have a dangerous attack so we have to be switched on all game. I'm looking forward to the game myself and hope we can get a win cos that would be massive going into next week where we have Fulham at home and City have Utd at OT.

{Ed025's Note - i was discussing the gooners with their supporters the other day brover, my take on things is that they are doing better than i expected but that they have had their fair share of good luck...i think that may just run out this week mate..


 

 

03 Apr 2018 23:21:16
It might be just me, but I really cannot see us getting through to the semis of the CL. With Can out our midfield is even weaker, quite slow, and not creative enough. Ox has shown some improvement recently, but I am still not convinced by him.

Our strength is obviously up front, but this won't be enough over the 2 legs. In fact, I can't see us getting a win tomorrow either.

City are miles ahead of us overall, and I think they will have learned from their defeat at Anfield earlier this season.

I am a die hard Liverpool fan, but also a realist, and I hope I am totally wrong with my comments, but I honestly don't think I am.

KBL

{Ed0333's Note - You must be a hit at funerals. Are you the angel of doom? Clearly you didn’t get the memo that were the only team in the Premiership to have beaten Man City in the league all season? Yes it’s gonna be difficult to beat them over two legs. Yes their irrreprecable, yes definitely favorites and yes they have a squad of players that are probably one of the best squads ever compiled in the history of football but we have hope, we have the Egyptian King who is capable of anything. we have the messiah Jurgen Norbert Klopp, were playing at the theatre of ‘ERITAGE’ Anfield which will unleash a decibel level so unprecedented that will have the deaf covering their ears. Roma were favorites in 1984 and we beat them in their own back yard. AC Milan were ‘miles ahead’ of us at half time in 2005 and look what transpired there? Dont be a DOUBTER my gloomy friend.


1.) 04 Apr 2018 00:20:48
I fancy we can match them over 180 minutes, even if we've been miles over the whole season. The main point is not to allow them dictate the tempo and let de Bruyne and Silva run the game. That'll require a lot of energy, aggression and closing down from our midfield, and tbf, whilst our midfielders maybe aren't the best for controlling a game and protecting the back 4, they usually deliver an energetic, combative performance in the big games. The Invisible Man was excellent against them in Jan, for example. That might be enough to tip in our favour.

I'd much prefer to have the second leg at Anfield though.


2.) 04 Apr 2018 07:19:35
Spot on, Ed. Wow, KBL, so by that logic, we might as well just pack it in and not bother showing up cos according to you, our midfield is weak and well, your nerves are getting the best of you. GET A GRIP, lad.

City have been better than us for a decade YET we are the only ones with the best results against them. How do you figure that out? Could it be cause we match up well vs them? Could it be that our team is built to match them on all fronts? Could it be that we have a manager who had thumped Pep the most in all of football? Could it be cos we have arguably the best forward line in Europe? Could it be that each time they come to Anfield they crap their pants and can't clear a ball (ask Kompany) I can keep going, man.

We have a much better team than 13/ 14, a much better manager, better players and of course, we have King Mo BUT I guess to you, it's all doom and gloom and no one need to show up for the game so City can just take the walkover and we should all move on with our lives, right? Again, GET A GRIP, man.


3.) 04 Apr 2018 08:09:48
Ed0333,fancy taking the team talk? That was so inspirational, I feel like we're in the semis already.

{Ed025's Note - whoah back there mate..


4.) 04 Apr 2018 09:11:29
Man cities huge lead on us was created before Xmas since then there's not much in it, got butterflies for Tonie, can't wait.


5.) 04 Apr 2018 10:33:33
Who’s Tonie, sounds like a fun gal?


6.) 04 Apr 2018 12:52:55

21 Feb 2018 20:39:29
Hi Ed002 - after my post the other day asking about what was happening re the racist accusations from Holgate against Firmino - the FA have concluded there is no case to answer. Bobby co-operated fully and has been exonerated. Good outcome me thinks.

KBL

{Ed002's Note - Absolutely, hopefully that is the end of the matter.}


1.) 21 Feb 2018 22:17:41

{Ed025's Note - we are not persisting with this tread K68 as it will just cause abuse so its case closed mate..


2.) 21 Feb 2018 21:39:10
Glad its done and dusted. How are you Ed2?

{Ed002's Note - technically homeless.}


3.) 21 Feb 2018 22:32:24
Fine Ed just expressing the opinion I had at the onset, respect your stance and understand the reasoning.


4.) 22 Feb 2018 00:20:14
I have a spare room ed.

{Ed033's Note - You would need copious amounts of Beluga white caviar in the spare room to tempt Ed002 😋


5.) 22 Feb 2018 00:13:06
Personally I’m glad the FA took their time. I’m also glad that there’s no recrimination or action against Holgate. He clearly misheard. It’s important that players feel they can report allegations and it’s important that those accused have a fair and thorough investigative process. The system works.


6.) 22 Feb 2018 00:51:12
‘Technically homeless’ ie. staying at the Ritz again Ed?

{Ed033's Note - The Ritz yes, Illuminati meeting i think


 

 

20 Feb 2018 09:07:45
I may have missed something, but what happened over the alleged racial abuse Bobby was accused of in the Derby?

It seems to have gone away.

Anyone know?

KBL

{Ed002's Note - It is still being looked in to. The players have been interviewed. There may not be any public statement in the end.}


1.) 20 Feb 2018 12:14:28
Many thanks Ed.

Well with 35/ 40 million from us and 60 million for Sanchez, it's very possible they have bid so much. In fact, their thinking could have been just that - get rid of AOC and get in Lemar.

Hi Ed - I do think Milner had a big part to play in the second goal. He was the one who passed the ball straight to the guy who scored. Wiji played his part in it too though.

KBL

{Ed001's Note - and that would not have mattered if Wijnaldum was capable of doing the basics.}

Good read and a fair evaluation of the team there ED.

I think your 6 for Milner was a bit generous as he gave the ball away straight to the player who scored their second goal, and that just knocked the stuffing out of us.

Many thanks for your efforts.

KBL

{Ed001's Note - and he gave it away with little danger as Gini was right there but Gini failed to get goalside to see out the problem. Don't be blaming Milner there, Wijnaldum had plenty of time to fix the mistake but failed miserably.}

We had 3 players come back injured from the last round of internationals. Keita - hasn't played since, Mane - still wearing a cast on a broken hand, Salah who picked up a muscle problem and maybe this is still affecting him some way. After a long 2017/ 18 season, then the world cup players are bound to be a little stale - and then have to travel all over the world for meaningless friendlies.

It will take Keita at least 5/ 6 games to get upto speed when he does finally get selected, and the same with Fab. A lot of patience still needed I think.

Oh, and guess what - yet another international break coming up!
