Regarding Salah, If you look at last season, It wasn’t unusual for him to miss a few sitters in a game before bagging a couple. I’d be a lot more worried if he wasn’t getting into the right positions. I was slightly surprised that Klopp took him off but I have absolutely no doubt that Mo will be banging them in again very soon, starting with City next Sunday.

Regarding Liverpool, i watched the game yesterday and felt pretty disappointed to be honest that we didn’t get all the points, Chelsea are a good side but it shows just how far we have come when we go to Stamford bridge and feel a bit gutted not to win. Finally, I’m starting to absolutely love Nabi Keita, he looks so rock solid and calm in possession, I think I’d like him to start against City, hard to drop anyone though to be fair though. Let’s give City a red storm next weekend again, before and during the game! YNWA.

100% agree on all the above!

Especially the Keita comment, we know the damage chambo did last season as an agressive dynamic midfielder.

We don’t have that this season but in Naby we can try to cause the same problems for them.

I think same as the Chelsea game it won’t be easy but think we all have a potentially VERY entertaining game on our hands.

Hoping Salah chooses this game to find his rhythm again and goes goals frenzie.

Hi Ed’s

Is Emre Can our for the season? I thought he was going to come back for West Brom?



{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

1.) 26 Apr 2018 14:08:59
He is out until mid May, unless he recovers in rapid time. He has played his last game for us.



26 Apr 2018 06:32:09
We need to approach the Roma game very very carefully. If we do t have that same energy in midfield they will do us. Too many peopl here assuming that we are in the final V Real Madrid.

It will be an entirely different game on Wednesday and I just hope the team are not as complacent as the fans are on here.


1.) 26 Apr 2018 07:58:33
Don't confuse optimism with arrogance buddy.

The fans are talking about the final because they are optimistic we can be there come the 26th. I've not seen anybody claim that we are already there, or that we can rest players against Roma, or that we can take it easy against them etc.

Everyone is fully aware the job is only half done, including the players. Don't worry about that mate. Just let our fans dream about something glorious. It's not their job to be professional. Let Klopp and the players worry about that.

We've not had anything to really dream about since 2013/ 14.

2.) 26 Apr 2018 08:20:59
I just hope all Liverpool fans going to that game stay safe! and we get the win we are all hoping and waiting for!

3.) 26 Apr 2018 08:47:38
I’ve read lots of ‘who would you rather play in the final? ’ and ‘Salah is going to destroy Marcello’ - As good as the performance was on Tuesday evening, Roma are more than capable of scoring 3 at home and we are more than capable of squandering massive leads.

I’m absolutely positive that Liverpool are in for a rocky night on Wednesday, we never do things the easy way. I think a few will be getting a bit of a shock if Roma bag a couple early doors. I really think we will score over there though, but nobody else has in Europ this season.

4.) 26 Apr 2018 09:04:43
Mrplums, I think we all know it won't be an easy night mate at this level of such a competition it'd be silly to think otherwise. But we'll do them, that I'm confident of. Can anybody really see them scoring 3 past us and us not scoring at all? I can't, we'll score at least 2, it's what our front 3 do for fun as we've seen all season. It'll be hard for us but it'll be a lot harder for Roma, they NEED at least 3 goals. Pressure is on for them.

5.) 26 Apr 2018 09:07:08
Those statements do seem to assume we will get there, but I'm sure those people are not suggesting we can be anything less than 100% against Roma, in Rome.

At the end of the day, the fans thoughts won't even make it to the players ears. They will be focused on Stoke right now.

6.) 26 Apr 2018 10:39:14
Roma will have to attack us next week which plays into our hands. we will have space to exploit and we will score. if we get 1 and they manage to get 4 well then they deserve to go through. I expect Klopp to have the boys mentally right for the game unlike Barcelona woulf like everyone bar Roma thought the tie was over and by the time they realised they had a game on their hands it was too late. from watching last nights game i fear none of them in the final because i guarntee Madrid/ Bayern will be hoping Roma get through because Liverpool are the most dangerous attacking side in Europe right now.
Also I must attempted I gave Henderson stick most weeks but lately he has been immense.

7.) 26 Apr 2018 18:58:37
MrPlums, chill out, MK is correct. Allow the fans to dream and be optimistic. If we can't do that now, when can you ever do that? Just enjoy what is happening in front of you cos for some of us, it is just breath-taking. Fans are allowed to enjoy it, man. No one is complacent. Everyone is optimistic and tho some may be a bit overboard, who cares man? We all know NOTHING comes easy. I mean, have you met LFC? It's what we do. Hendo and Klopp already sounded the battle cry right after the game in their pressers so the players, manager and majority of the fans are fully aware of the task at hand and will not be doing anything diff. from what they know how to do. Stoke is the next challenge and that is what ours and your focus should be, not Roma. We will deal with them later. We will be fine. YNWA!



22 Apr 2018 07:26:02
Going back to the 2008/ 09 season Liverpool up to the 8th of April - Liverpool have had 28 penalties given against them. Chelsea have had 12.

12 - that’s just 12 pens in 9 seasons in the premier league.

How on earth do you work that out?

And you cannot say that the most attacking teams get the most pens. Liverpool have had 3 this season and we are probably the best attacking side in the league behind City. Palace have the most with 9 then Everton 8.
Make of this what you will but If you look at the stats I think refereeing has a massive part to play in the outcome of games. Liverpool have had the most given against us compared with all the so-called top 6 going back 10 years.

Yesterday was yet another example of refereeing costing us points. We have had 10 points taken away from us from the direct result of referring decisions this season, it’s impossible to calculate the indirect ones, free kick cos outside the box / 50/ 50 challenges but I suspect the stats aren’t in our favour. We had the rub in the Champions league v City without a doubt but I’m not holding my breath for a decision going out way in the premier league.


1.) 22 Apr 2018 07:50:04
Refereeing got us into the CL semi finals.

{Ed001's Note - did it? I thought the fact that they never registered a single shot on target in the first leg had a lot to do with it personally. And that they folded in the second half of the second as they ran out of legs also had a lot to do with it. Obviously I must have been mistaken that the better side, by a margin, went through because they were the better side.}

2.) 22 Apr 2018 07:57:13
That is singlehandedly the most foolish comment I have ever read on this great site
the fact we scored 5 and they scored one had no part right?
How do some people call themselves supporters is beyond me
support your team not spout silly comments c'mon it is easy to do.

3.) 22 Apr 2018 08:01:35
Hegazi and Dawson should both have been sent off for assaulting Ings off the ball.

4.) 22 Apr 2018 08:01:38
Utter nonsense.

5.) 22 Apr 2018 08:02:56
Faithinworks we won fair and square 5-1 over the two legs, that's not a bit of referee luck, we outplayed them, it had bugger all to do with refereeing, well maybe it did, we could've won by a larger margin should City of got the numerous red cards they deserved. We fully deserve to be in the semis and that's down to how the team performed.

6.) 22 Apr 2018 08:21:06
While I agree we outplayed City and fully deserved to go through, there were decisions that went against City. 2 offside goals disallowed incorrectly, but there was also Ederson who could have easily been sent off.
In terms of penalties, decisions can go against you or for you, and even if that's wrong, I enjoy it. It creates debate which makes football interesting.

{Ed001's Note - Otamendi could easily have been sent off as well, and their players made numerous, repeated, yellow card offence fouls that were not punished. The decisions were not in favour of Liverpool at all.}

7.) 22 Apr 2018 08:25:37
Faith, I love your posts normally, BUT here, you are talking utter nonsense. How on this earth do you reckon that we made the CL semis due to a ref decision in 180mins whereas City only registered ONE shot on target in open play in that time span? Did the refs give us the FIVE goals we scored vs them or did that all happen legally in open play? If any team has taken advantage of ref bias in the CL, it is Real and before them, Barca. Please, stop that crap ASAP. We won, fair and square and by the way, this is the PL, and not the CL.

8.) 22 Apr 2018 08:48:59
We lost yesterday to poor defending from set pieces once again and they caused us problems all afternoon with their crosses. Whilst I do agree Klopp’s rotation strategy has kept players fresh, for me, the back 4 needs to stay the same.

9.) 22 Apr 2018 09:07:43
When West Brom came from behind and beat us in the fa cup I bet that was because of the ref as well. Yes the ref was poor yesterday and got lots wrong but I can't remember him scoring 2 for West Brom or forcing us to defend like a Sunday league team. We didn't win, it happens. Let's not be that team that hide behind excuses all the time and let's just move onto the next game and put it right.

10.) 22 Apr 2018 09:48:40
Isn’t it ironic that we (English press and many fans) vehemently criticise a snubbed handshake, a complaint about a decision or a playing surface as a lack of class on one hand and yet applaud managers and teams that go out to purposely kick and injure the opposition? Perverted logic that.

11.) 22 Apr 2018 10:02:44
Did we lose yesterday. have I missed something?

12.) 22 Apr 2018 10:26:05
I was being facetious ed1.!

13.) 22 Apr 2018 11:51:06
Switching to being serious for a second - if someone can find the science that proves we are more. Hard done by than others then I'd love to read it! Until then, the ref thing is a factor but for me going to conspiracies starts to makes us sound a little sour grapes. I was joking about my the ref getting us thru to the semis, but ya'll must be joking if ya don't think we benefitted from some favorable calls. Take em and run I say. got to Suck em up at the other end tho.

14.) 22 Apr 2018 12:08:15
I’ve lost my faith in you good sir.



22 Apr 2018 06:45:23
We have had 3 penalties this season with 6 against us.
I am at the point where I honestly think there is an agenda against us. We don’t get penalties and we get them given against us for nothing.

We would be in the champions league again now and probably in second place. How the foul on Danny Ings in the box yesterday isn’t given is beyond me.

The pen that spurs got in the dying seconds. The pen that Everton got at Anfield.

That’s 6 points alone.

The stats just don’t make sense, given that we usually have the lions share of possession and that we spend probably double the amount of time in the opposing teams penalty area then you would think that on average we would get at least an equal amount of penalties? We have been given half.

In years to come it will come out about the agenda against Liverpool. I’m utterly convinced. They don’t want us up there, with the vast amounts of money flying around for champions league qualification - I think that they are being bribed and they want certain teams in those four spots. .


{Ed0333's Note - Oh MrPlums you have put a smile on my face nae I’m cracking up. I like a good conspiracy theory as much as the next man but i don’t think there’s any legs to your sentiments. Besides I have it on good authority the referee of today’s game was at dinner with a notorious Indian bookmaker/matchfixer in Manchester last week and they were discussing baby names for Meghan Markle and the odds on goals scored by the home team in the last 2minutes of matches.

1.) 22 Apr 2018 07:53:02
I saw an article on Tomkintimes talking about penalties and referees. They concluded that rather than bias against Liverpool, refs might be biased in favour of English/ British players. About 60% of penalties were given to British players. Oh, and teams on average receive 62% of appeals awarded at home. Liverpool are awarded 50% at Anfield.
Looks like we need more British players to get fouled in the box or get more of them if we want more penalties ;)

2.) 22 Apr 2018 08:12:51
It’s a cliche but the fine margins really count. How that isn’t a foul on Danny Ings I will sadly never ever know. I’d love be to ask the referee. He also took a punch to the gut Hegazi. Bunch of thugs that lot, and I will be very happy to see them go down. We will see if that is dealt with in retrospect but I bet it won’t be. The level of refereeing in our games this year has been appalling.

{Ed001's Note - worse is that they got a foul for that.}

3.) 22 Apr 2018 08:32:50
I don't believe in agendas or conspiracies BUT you have to say, this officiating whenever LFC plays in the PL, is becoming diabolical, IMO. The thing is is that in the PL, refs are inherently incompetent and make mistakes on both sides so people think they are good. The ref yesterday, was clueless. Why? You could actually tell that most of the decisions he was making, were being done on a whim or a guess. You could see that he had no clue of what to award or not so he would either let play go on when it should not have or was scared to blow for stuff cos he was rarely sure.

For example on the foul on Ings, I saw that on TV live and I knew it was NOT a coming together and the replays showed it. If I can see that on my telly in real time, what stops the ref from seeing that when he's on the pitch? Also I think refs are WAY too far from the play so when things happen like the Hegazi incident, they just guess and when you get wrong, you look like a goat which he is now. We need better refs on the whole, who know the rules, can keep up with play and make the right decisions cos at this point, we may not be able to win the PL if such ref standards are there cos refs seem okay to just screw with certain teams and not w/ others.

{Ed001's Note - the 4th official had a clear view of that incident yet somehow was unable to see it. He was right where the camera was!}

4.) 22 Apr 2018 08:45:44
I spent an afternoon with keith hackett a few years back. He said that the refs hated the constant moaning of david moyes so much that they loved giving decisions against his teams (at that time everton) . I wonder if klopps antics on the sidelines are having a detrmimental effect on these decisions? we've had some shockers this season. Id be all in for var if it could be done quickly and accurately (which they don't seem to be able to do at the mo sadly)

5.) 22 Apr 2018 07:30:09
Good one ed. I think the bookmaker would be sat with a Russian in the west end of London to st you straight.

{Ed0333's Note - Im sticking to my story and will not be swayed. The bookmaker ordered a lamb rogan josh with two garlic nan (extra ghee) and the referee ordered a tandoori chicken but it didn’t fill him up so he ordered a mixed grill but couldn’t finish it and took the rest home. The bookmaker picked up the bill. Read into that what you will. I have it on good authourity the bill was paid in pounds sterling.

It just gets boring. It’s gone on for years. We all know the situation. It’s new to me that he has ‘resigned’. I thought they had a bust up and he walked out. I wasn’t aware that he ‘resigned’. I’m just sick of the constant baiting ed 1. It’s as if we are beneath ed 2 - as Liverpool fans, I see things for what they are and ed 2 never stops digging at us. I just took this as another one.

Ed 2 stirring the pot again.


{Ed001's Note - no, you are being a dick. Like I said, Klopp never wanted him gone, he chose to resign, what is the issue here that seems to be escaping you? The club are keeping the door open trying to resolve the issues. Ball is in Buvac's court and he has other offers.}

He certainly fits our criteria. As for replacing Firmino, this simply wouldn’t be the case, they would rotate, as do the midfield and defence. We should always look to improve and he looks a great addition. If Firmino is injured in the next game who starts up top? Ings and Solanke don’t cut the mustard for me. We definitely need more strength up front.

I think the Ox will remedy this, we really do have a really good team now. Virgil is the key for me, keep him fit and we will be in the mix to win the prem.

I play 5 a side and there is a very good player that we play against who scores for fun, he has trouble with his weight but otherwise I think he’d be pro and trust me, I know exactly what he’s going to do every time but stopping him doing it is all down to speed of thought and coordination, he’s simply faster than most. Salah is the fastest on the planet, along with Messi.
