Is it just me or today the slowest Saturday ever?
Getting that jumpy the wife has made me take double adhd meds!




24 May 2018 17:47:07
Been reading and listening to so called experts and pundits saying we have no chance, listened to that bloke from real Madrid saying none if our team would make their starting 11. Don't get me wrong I'm glad we are the under dogs, I'm not saying we have better players than them, but I'm surprised these comments from Spain and the experts are making it so one sided.
I'm not a fan if most stats but I'm a fan of stats that are important, most of the comments are in regards to 2 players Ronaldo and Salah. Both amazing players, both important to each team.
But it's not about 2 players it's about 22 on the pitch.

Real Madrid are set up to feed Ronaldo and his ego, he has 15 goals and 2 assists this year champions league. Benzema has 4 goals, bale has 1. They don't have 1 player in the top 5 places for assists.

Liverpool are set up as a team to feed the team to score, not one player like real Madrid.
Salah has 10 goals 4 assists, firmino 10 goals 8 assists and mane 9 goals 2 assists and let's not forget all Time champions league assists in one campaign leader James Milner with 9 assists.

So Liverpool the underdog, the team with players not good enough for real Madrid have 3 players in the top 5 goal scorers and the top 2 in the assists.

On Saturday these stats won't matter, but what they show will make a huge difference, they prove we have a team that when they play well they play as a unit, they fight for the team, they attack as a team and defend as a team. We have as good a chance of lifting that trophy as real Madrid do, and if they go into the game thinking our players aren't good enough for them, or if they think. by stopping Salah it will stop Liverpool they're going to be in a big shock.

Can not wait for saturday.

Just want to point out that 4 of Ronaldo's 15 goals were penalties. Without penalties, he would be just ahead of Salah's and Firmino's 10 and Mane's 9 (none of them took a penalty) .

It's not as if he is far more clinical or doing way better than our front 3.

2.) 24 May 2018 19:17:24
Wasn't sure how many pens he'd scored so didn't put it in, but what I did find was that Ronaldo has played nearly 200 minutes more each of our front 3. Still an amazing player, just wanted to point out that Liverpool don't have just 1 amazing player our front 3 combined seem a natural attack together. The fact they have 29 goals and 14 assists between them is amazing.
Should be an awesome game.
Not sure what I said wrong to get things down going to assume we got some green eyed fans.

Any one interested in a gofundme being set up to help buy a new keeper?


1.) 23 Dec 2017 11:28:19
Our manager rates our keepers highly.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 11:29:34
Put the money toward a lawyer and prosecute mignolet for stealing a living.

3.) 23 Dec 2017 11:34:03
We don't need to buy a GK yet, we have Karius.

4.) 23 Dec 2017 12:09:58
Think both karius and ward could be good keepers but still think we need to go out and get a top class keeper as a priority if we are going to really challenge for top spot. Man u, Chelsea spurs all have keepers that earn them points, ours cost us.
We need to spend on a commanding keeper and cb over any other position.

5.) 23 Dec 2017 12:53:58
We have the money to buy a very good keeper now, but we won't do it, although how many are actually available to move atm? Genuine question there and I don't mean your Harts or your Pickfords, we need better! Oh and how much has our goalkeeping coach done to this situation, Migs has hardly improved the whole time he's been with us and some of that has to be levelled at coaching staff!

{Ed002's Note - But never at Klopp}

6.) 23 Dec 2017 13:33:01
In my defence Ed, I said some of that blame, Klopp deserves a lot for the idea of keeping 3 keepers happy at the club and it's not working, as I predicted in the summer!



24 Oct 2017 11:23:15
Not posted in a while or looked on here due to our woeful form and knowing there will be some bad reactions.

I've enjoyed watching some of our football with klopp as I did at first with Rodgers. Both seemed to find a very good attacking way of playing for the first season or two but then neither addressed the glaringly obvious problem lfc have had for a long time. Our defence and gk.

We have needed a commanding confident keeper for years now and a controlling defender. If carragher had been in the team against spurs he would have ripped lovren to pieces. Our defence is too slow and cumbersome for this style of play. Last season we got away with it as we put most of our chances away. This year the team seems so low in confidence (except salah) I can't help but think this is due to the problems at the back seeping through fornthe players through out the team.

I had big expectations with klopps, and at first I was happy, but if he was such a good manager why hasn't he fixed the problem we have. Not the attack but the defence. Instead of chasing Chamberlain why not use the 35million on a cb? Why not make a statement sell lovren and migs and replace them? If he is so good why did he not have a second option instead of Virgil?

I'm not saying klopps out, but surely he should be asked what his plans are and why he is making the same mistake every week playing the same defence?

Just my thoughts after a torrid start.


1.) 24 Oct 2017 13:12:36
Agree to a large extent - Klopp has done a fantastic job going forward but defensively it’s been poor and we haven’t improved, whether that’s recruitment or Klopp I don’t know but clearly he has had too much faith in Migs and Lovren in re-signing their contracts and perhaps he could have been more demanding of replacements.

My other concern is we sold our only true DM and then has proceeded to mix and match on the deep CM role and in our style of defence (sometimes seems we’re caught between a high press and dropping deeper, and instead doing neither) . Not a bad thing to show willingness to adapt but too often that’s left Hendo isolated and our CBs left with 2 on 2 which is not sensible given their confidence and our current GK. How do other sides somehow always seem to be in two banks of 4 when we lose possession but we have 7 or 8 players stuck in front of the ball?

I think we’ve shown we can become more pragmatic in defence, and one away loss to a very good Tottenham side doesn’t kill our season (We’ve also played most of the top sides already) but I feel Klopp is under some form of pressure for the first time in his career at Liverpool. We have a glaring issue to solve that he’s so far shown an inability to correct. I reckon if he can’t solve in at least by the summer then this time next year many will be asking whether he’s able to solve it at all.

I hope he can, because if he can I believe he’ll take us all the way to the top.

2.) 24 Oct 2017 15:29:38
Defensive mistakes have cost us points. Let alone the keeper our defenders have made mistakes resulting in draws. Klopp has said the players he has wanted and gone for them alone. Breaking transfer rules and showing no respect to other clubs. I like the attacking football, but Rodgers had the same attack going forward and nothing at the back. Yes we have better players now, but again not at the back. We can't praise him for his attack whilst not blame him for the defence. He needs to sort it out b4 we are too far behind. We can still pull back our season it's not all doom and gloom, but shocking that the defence hasn't been fixed.



19 Aug 2017 21:43:05
Struggling to understand so many of these negative posts.
Have crystal palace not won their last 3 visits to anfield? Wasn't one of our biggest let down s last year we struggled to win ugly against park the bus teams? Isn't Henderson just coming back from a long term injury?
If we'd played 100 miles an hour football, bit failed to score would u be happier?
No it wasn't edge if seat football, no it wasn't Henderson's best game.
Yes we one, the players stayed focused organised and ground out a win against a team last season we lost at home to. We broke through a defensive team. Henderson showed he is in his way back from injury, we have players in the bench that male a change and players still to come back.
Not perfect, improvement needed. But I forgot still not good enough for most fans on here.
Grow up.


1.) 19 Aug 2017 22:36:59
I don't give a hoot how we win, just aslong as we do. Keep grinding out the victories.

2.) 19 Aug 2017 22:29:25
A win is a win lifelong. The table doesn't say 3 points but it wasn't great does it? I'm with you mate put the 3 points straight in the bag and on to Wednesday. Keep another clean sheet and we are in the Champions League.

3.) 19 Aug 2017 22:40:24
I agree mate cudnt believe how negative joey barton was about us on radio I know he's a blue but so biased, this was a big win for us due to there 3 past wins for them at anfield an even wid phil cout in team we cudnt beat them past 3 occasions, I would like too see firminio in att mid position an solanke or studge up front, firminio = workrate an attacking intent.

4.) 19 Aug 2017 22:51:22
Couldn't agree more! We can't keep a clean sheet. moan. Can't break down teams who park the bus. moan! Well we did both today so why the moan?
We won without playing well, something we struggled with last year.
The negativity is getting ridiculous at the moment. imagine what it'll be like when we get beat!

5.) 19 Aug 2017 22:53:55
Lifelong- it's the norm on here nowadays. Negativity is equated to "realism" and if you choose to see the positive then you got red tinted glasses on. Take for example today. 2 months of full on slating of Robertson before he joined. And yet the kid is doing well, and far better than expected. He will undoubtedly only improve. And the slaters are quiet and already moved on to their next victim (Henderson by the looks of it) . But your comment "grow up" is certainly very apt.

6.) 19 Aug 2017 23:45:38
5 changes to the team maybe some of them were with an eye on Wdnesday. Agree with Lifelongred too much negativity around a hard fought win.

7.) 19 Aug 2017 23:56:18
We spent last year moaning that we couldn't win ugly.

Today we win ugly and some are still moaning.

3 points and a clean sheet while rotating the squad for Hoffenheim.

Sturridge survived, new left back done well, as did Gomes in all fairness.

I'd take that as progress 2 games in.

8.) 20 Aug 2017 04:10:25
You should have seen the hyper critical bandwagon on the live chat it was a disgrace.

9.) 20 Aug 2017 07:55:37
Spot on, OP and Ra1969. The "fans" had their knives out for us to day and for Klopp BUT to their great disappointment, we won, kept a clean sheet, our back line smothered Benteke, Robbo had a very good game and we are 4th as of today. There is actually a lot to be disappointed about if you are a "fan" of LFC, rooting for us to fail so you can win some pathetic argument that only exist in the world that only you live in. But don't worry, these "fans" will be back as soon as we screw up ( cos we will) and there they will gratify us with their negativity I mean, realism.

Genuine update for all those asking the eds for updates. Not a rumour but a guarantee. The transfer so any players will be officially completed on the .

Day it's confirmed by the club's involved. So sit back and chill and stop asking the eds questions they have never answered.

Sure one of the eds mentioned navas was a back up choice, might be wrong but seem to remember it being said.

Worst thing about it is the lesson taught to the kids from the England striker is

Starting to wander what the age is of some of the posters on here
Hadn't most of the same sources for the last few weeks been saying Keita and vvd signed for us/ agreed personal terms etc?
If coutinho wants to leave then let him leave, yes he is ONE of our best players, but if he wants out why keep him? As long as we get good money for him.
We have players who should be able to step up and I'm sure there are plans in place for his replacement. As one of the eds said a few times his agent and himself have already spoke of his desire to play for Barca. I believe max Meyer was a replacement mentioned before.
For now it's newspaper clickbait.
Until it's announced its rubbish.
If he goes good luck thanks for some awesome entertainment and onto the next player. Players come and go, Liverpool will always be here.

Agree with what you have said. I like most football fans from all teams during transfer window are checking every site possible for rumours of players our teams are linked with. Those who use this site are lucky enough to have the eds giving their knowledge and insight into these rumours. It can be an exciting time when clubs are linked to a player that could take the team to another level.

Unfortunately it's also a time people's true spoilt brat nature where as soon as a player is linked to their club then in their tiny mind that player is theirs and no one else's. When there is a problem with the transfer or the rumour wasn't true (shock horror after all a rumour is gospel after all) their reactions towards people such as the eds or more respectable posters become embarrassing, their questions become repetitive and their attitudes return to that of a 2 year old throwing a paddy.

I will be honest until I read the name fekir on this site, I knew nothing of him as a player. Just what I have read from the eds and other bits I've picked up on the internet. Looks a really good player. When the rumours grew and the announcements all over the internet it looked like a good addition to the team.

As it stands it looks likely the deal is off, this could change but the only people who truly know this aren't going to make it public. The reasons behind this are likely to be known truly by a few. The eds have given their opinion, yet there are still people on here moaning it's their God given right to have this player now. Heaven forbid the reason is LFC think it's too risky due to his knee, heaven forbid if Lyon are holding out for a price they want for THEIR player and LFC don't value him the same.

If it's his knee then I would have to agree with LFC medical team, I tore my acl playing American football at 16, had surgery and physio, the 3 seasons after I had to play with a don joy goldpoint brace, 20 years later my knee is still prone to collapse. So would I risk 50million plus on fekir if there was another player available? Possibly not.

If it Lyon wanting more money, good for them, fekir is their player, the same as coutinho was ours and we held out for the money we wanted.

Long post i know, the point I'm try to make in too many words, I have adhd and asd and tend to rant sorry!
If LFC sign a player I will support them as part of my beloved team, if LFC linked to a player I will come on here and read the replies in red from the eds and be thankful for THEIR time in responding with their knowledge, I won't be throwing a paddy if we don't sign a certain player, instead will wait for for eds or LFC to announce a signing.

In short we are Liverpool, we are growing back into a team who can compete, we don't have the right to any player we want but I do believe in what is happening with our team.

Good luck eds with the repeated questions and please ignore the abuse from the ignorants, most of us respect your knowledge and appreciate your replies

Why would Henderson need to go on on long dribbling runs? He's doing his job for the team, we have one of the fastest counter attacks around, we have three forwards that can take on and dribble round players, we need a midfielder who is there to break down attacks and play the quick passes to set our counter attack off, we need a midfielder who will sit in the midfield and help protect our back line, keep it calm and simple and when needed ping a pass into space, in Henderson we have a player who does these things very well, not world class not a player for highlights because he's not a show boating player. But when he plays we as a team tend to play better. To bash him because he doesn't dribble past players proves how little you know about football.

What's all the doom and gloom about?
All the blame?
We take a 3 goal lead I to the away game, Roma must attack straight off leaving space behind for us to counter against which I'm pretty sure that's our biggest threat against almost all defences we've played against. So why all the doom and gloom?
Yes the players turned off after the Salah substitution, not klopps fault he did the right thing giving Salah a rest.
End of day we played some amazing football, easily one of most entertaining games I've watched in years.
Next up stoke then we go again in Europe, let's sit back and enjoy the ride.

I wouldn't say he hasn't spent money wisely, he has probably one of the best squads around, their defence is no worse than ours plus they have a better keeper. I agree teams are scared to attack them due to there ability to counter, isn't that the same as when teams play us. The games we've struggled with are the games teams don't attack us.
We are a very good team and it is bloody annoying when teams and pundits always seem to say we won as other teams weren't playing their best or we got lucky, but as long as teams keep righting us of and we keep smashing them that's fine by me.


{Ed001's Note - how is their keeper better? He has been at fault on a large number of the goals they have conceded recently? He may be good with his feet but he is not a top class keeper in any aspect of the game. He is just suited to their style of play.}
