Afternoon Eds
Can u explain to me how the seeding is carried out for the champions league groups is it based on a clubs participating in it over the last 5 seasons or something to that effect and that's why Liverpool could effectively be in pot 3 for the draw pending what happens to Benfica in the next qualifying round
Cheers Mate.

1.) 03 Aug 2018 15:20:28
European rankings I believe, we were almost dead certs for pot 3 but now Basel are out if fenerbache can beat benfica we will go into pot 2.

2.) 03 Aug 2018 15:43:55
If we go into pot 3 it just makes it more tricky for those in pots 1 and 2.

Not many will be happy to have us joining them in their group as they know they will be in for a tough time.

3.) 03 Aug 2018 19:05:36
Pot 2 would be a good help but we were in pot 3 last season and got a favourable draw.

4.) 03 Aug 2018 22:27:32
We are awesome who cares what pot we are in.

5.) 04 Aug 2018 14:17:53
It doesn’t matter which pot we’re in
It’s our opponents who will be rubbish worried.

6.) 06 Aug 2018 08:56:45
Interestingly this year, pots 2-4 are actually fairly flat in quality making it very little difference what group we end up in - especially when you get some protection from not being drawn with teams from the same country - so if you get Real, Barcelona or Athletico in pot 1 you won't get Valencia in pot 4, and if you get Juventus in pot 1 you won't get Inter Milan in 4. Honestly, there is only really one team in pot 2 I'd rather avoid (Dortmund) and at least two in pot 3 (Roma and Monaco) so I'm very relaxed about where we get put.

Morning all

Surly these Jack Grealish rumours are tripe no doubting the kid has talent but he has a stinking attitude and a very short fuse to go with it, wouldn't want him anywhere near our club just a disruptive wanna be.

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

1.) 08 Jul 2018 09:34:57
Cheers ed25
I know this is the Liverpool site but how do you see the coming season developing for all you blue noses. What's your take on your new manager and potential ins and outs.

{Ed025's Note - im happy with silva and brands at the helm zippy, it will take time but i think we may be on the right track now and i dont expect there there will be many players coming in mate..

2.) 08 Jul 2018 12:06:20
Cheers mate looking forward to a few good auld derby battles this season best of luck to u and all the blue noses enjoy what's left of the weekend bud 😁.

3.) 08 Jul 2018 10:00:13
At least you got shot of Fat Scam Ed.

{Ed025's Note - yeah mate that was a good decision..

4.) 08 Jul 2018 10:03:41
Ed25 didn't you all say that last season? And the season before. and the one before. Only playin mate😁.

{Ed025's Note - i have to ben, if you dont have hope mate you have nothing, then again mostly its been nothing..

5.) 08 Jul 2018 21:39:10
Imagine if fat Sam was still the England manager. God we all dodged a bullet there.

6.) 09 Jul 2018 07:18:08
Sorry for the late reply Kloppboss. The study was of top athletes in football, rugby and aussie rules rugby, so no golfers Involved. Ox reruptured his ligament in one of three classical situation where he tried to regain possesion of the ball, the other two are after heading (the landing situation), and the last one is cut and turn moves. Those three situations are almost the only situations where fotballens at a top level gets an ACL injury. The risk of rerupture is significantly higher the first match after the first injury, there is also a higher risk of reinjury if you come back to playing matches before 9 months after the first injury, and the risk gets less and less until 12 months after the first injury, after that there is now significant difference if you wait even longer.
If you look at all athletes in all levels of sport the return to sport at the same level they were before the injury, the number is s low as 54 % (recent review from Clare Ardern and her study Group) .

Redallover: the study you are referring to is from Jan Ekstrands group (he runs the UEFA medical study group where all the participant club in Champions league are invited to join, a study that are ongoing and has been so for the last 16 years), and much has happened since 2001. There were a lot higher reinjury rate at that time, and most injuries has a lot lower injury rate. There are still high Numbers of injury rate when it comes to muscle injuries, especially hamstring injuries, but the last data seems to finally to show improvement there as well (not published yet, but presented at the isokinetic medical conference at camp nou, juni 2.-4, 2018).

Make no mistake, an ACL injury is a serious injury, and will probably lead to early OA (oestoarthritis) in early are, and many that are not at a top level will never come back to sports. But there have been major advances in preventing, and handling ACL injuries at all levels. The 11+ programme has shows to be preventing at youth level and lower levels, at high levels it is a little bit more advanced. And as said earlier on ACL injuries usually comes with various secondary injuries that could cause some problems.

The biggest risk of any injury is previous injuries (so a player that has been injured, has a greater risk of a new injury of any sort), and exposure (time spent in training and match, where playing a match is more than double risk than training in acute injuries and muscle inuries that are more of an overloadinjury, other overloadinjuries seems to occur more in training) .

Evening Eds
I've listened to skarkpod#12 and even though our 1st choice for the full back position could be sessengong (excuse the spelling ) could you see us rekindling our interest in chilwell looked great and accomplished when he came on the other night .

{Ed002's Note - Maybe - and he would be a good option but perhaps a risk as first pick?}

1.) 20 Apr 2017 16:16:23
Cheers Ed much appreciated.



05 Jul 2016 12:02:46
Hi Eds
Rumour has it that Alex Teixeira is unsettled in China and is looking for a move back to Europe . Do you think we could rekindle our previous interest in him it seems that Klopp had a good look at him before his move to China and obviously rates him highly or has that bird flown the nest .

{Ed002's Note - Nothing to do with Liverpool at this time.}

1.) 05 Jul 2016 15:15:52
If this was the case then maybe we would've looked at him, until we bought Mané. Now we have Mané we have moved on.

2.) 05 Jul 2016 15:50:37
He's struggled in a weak Chinese league, what would be the point of signing someone who failed in a league weaker than the SPL?!

3.) 05 Jul 2016 16:38:47
Because he did really well in a league much stronger than the Chinese league, and also the Champions League.

4.) 05 Jul 2016 16:41:37
I should add though, I don't want us to sign him, just the Chinese league point with all the other factors involved, including his difficulty settling, is a ridiculous one.

5.) 05 Jul 2016 18:06:17
I don't think he has played in a strong league.



03 Jul 2016 17:32:41
Hi eds any more developments on the Benteke situation have crystal palace actually submitted a bit and if so do you think they will increase it to this £30 million figure we are lead to believe that the club are holding out for cheers keep up the outstanding work .

{Ed001's Note - I am not aware of a formal bid, but they have spoken to us and know the asking price.}

1.) 03 Jul 2016 20:11:02

Is there any interest in Mousa Sissoko?

{Ed002's Note - Whilst Newcastle has said they have had no offers for Moussa Sissoko at this time, they are choosing their words carefully as there has been a further approach from Napoli and they are hoping to get interest from others, perhaps including Arsenal.}

2.) 03 Jul 2016 20:48:28
I think we are getting worse s players than we have.

3.) 03 Jul 2016 21:27:52
You're having a laugh Billo5times.

4.) 03 Jul 2016 21:39:07
Ron name me players that we've got and tell me about them and what they have done I bet you nobody as heard a single thing about them.

5.) 03 Jul 2016 21:53:01
I bet you diddnt hear much about suarez, coutinho, firmino, can etc? Just because they are not household major names that everyone knows doesn't mean they are any less quality, give em a break ey and trust the manager, his reputation on the line, he isn't here to muck about.

6.) 03 Jul 2016 22:04:24
Well I've heard a lot about Matip who is very highly respected in Germany and I think he might be our best recruit.
Karius I'd heard of but he needs to improve IMO
Grujic was courted by Champions league teams.
Obviously I've seen a lot of Mané at Saints.

You can't tell me Karius is worse than Migs or Matip worse than Skrtel?

7.) 03 Jul 2016 22:05:17
To be fair kiz all 3 where house hold names coutinho use to be a left back for inter if I'm not mistaken, Suarez has a brilliant goals to games ratio for Ajax and if that wasn't enough he was also known as the player who cleared the ball off the line against Ghana with his hand which resulted in them being knocked out of the WC on pennos and if you watched any bundesliga football you would know who firmino was and the excellent partnership he had with Kevin volland.

8.) 03 Jul 2016 22:04:24
Well I've heard a lot about Matip who is very highly respected in Germany and I think he might be our best recruit.
Karius I'd heard of but he needs to improve IMO

9.) 04 Jul 2016 04:59:04
Billo, Karius and Matip are definite improvements on Skrtel and MIgs. That itself will be worth an extra 10 points next season considering how many individual mistakes Skrtel and Migs made. Stop being so negative.

10.) 04 Jul 2016 07:12:13
Dev, Coutinho wS never a LB for Inter. He was a left midfielder for them under Benitez and was very good in the C L especially the game were they beat Spurs and Bale scored a hatrick. As for those saying Mingo is better than Karius must have been living under a rock the past four years as Mingo has gotten worse with every passing season while Karius was voted the best GK in Germany by his peers hence, he's already better than Mingo as Germany is the home for the bests gk's right now. Billo, what ever Sissoke was good at and whatever he added to the Newcastle team that got them relegated, I want NONE of it at LFC.

11.) 04 Jul 2016 10:29:57
Billo5times there showing his own ignorance. Won't even bother dignifying such nonsense with a detailed response.

But Dev, where did you get the idea Couts was a LB? Must've dreamt that, he's always played as a creative midfielder, either in the center, on the left or in the hole.

12.) 04 Jul 2016 13:38:00
Sorry guys memory isn't as good as it use to be, genuinely thought he use to play there, maybe in the games I was watching he was just filling in there for an injured player.

13.) 04 Jul 2016 14:38:33
Dev mate, come on.

14.) 05 Jul 2016 01:57:38
Suarez, Coutinho, Firmino and Can were all well known players/ talents when we got them.

Young Wilson doing the business again tonight for Derby scoring 1 and a great assist for Derbies equaliser surely worth a run in the squad next season great talent.

1.) 16 Jan 2019 21:40:18
Got to give him a chance to replace Lallana and Sturridge in my opinion. He's got so much potential.



03 Jan 2019 09:30:49
Morning all.

Just a opinion on tonight's game let's take the worst case scenario if we lose will it really be the end of the world : not at all in my opinion it does close the gap and puts a little more pressure on ourselves but don't forget we are quality too and I still firmly believe that we still aren't firing on all cylinders yet. I would love a win tonight, would take a draw before kick off but a loss won't be the be all and end all. All the teams including ourselves and citee will drop points over the next 18 games if someone doesn't well then there is no doubt in anyone's mind that they would then finish top of the pile and be worthy champions whoever they are. Let's just enjoy the ride for now and see how things unfold.

Come on the super reds.

1.) 03 Jan 2019 10:13:57
Lose today and the game against Brighton ( away ) becomes a must win and from there on every game becomes a must win! Cannot lose today!

2.) 03 Jan 2019 10:31:01
We won't lose, I'd settle for a draw but I believe we'll beat them.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 11:00:03
as far as I can tell, just about every game we've played has been called must-win. so cliche, but let's just go game by game and do our best to get the next 3 points up for grabs. If we do lose tomorrow, I'd be so interested to see how we respond. that scenario itself could show the biggest indicator of how far we have grown as title challengers.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 11:06:56
Considering the momentum of the two teams, I would say we have a good chance. But momentum hardly decides these kind of matches.
We'll have opportunities, we just have to be clinical when we do.
As long as the players put in their best shift, I won't care about the result.

5.) 03 Jan 2019 11:56:41
Listen to Salah - captain optimism 😊.

6.) 03 Jan 2019 13:20:53
No, we shouldn't lose or even draw. Go all out for the kill and beat them, so that they are chasing for the rest of the season, while we are in the driver's seat. That psychological advantage is priceless.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 13:31:29
Exactly ra, spot on.

8.) 03 Jan 2019 15:50:06
No bias, hand on heart. We have been the best team this season. We are away and that can be hard but we are good enough to beat them.

They are going to want to win this one though. This is biggest game for them after we destroyed them last year.

They are cheats and I don't trust them. I can see us picking up injuries.

{Ed025's Note - thats not very nice calling them cheats robbie, i dont think they cheat more than anyone else myself mate...liverpool included..

9.) 03 Jan 2019 16:48:41
Maybe ed025. But I reckon pep is more inclined to encourage a foul if it stops a counter attack. Whereas I reckon klopp is more into fair play. I know all players, or most, try what they can with refs, City aren't the worst by a long way and they play some devestating football. We will see by 10 tonight. I have a feeling kompany or fernandinio are going to go straight through one or two of our players.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think liverpool players are exactly angels robbie, fabinho and lovren can be thugs at the best of times and VVD is hardly a shrinking violet mate, it should be interesting..

10.) 03 Jan 2019 19:25:28
Hollywood (Harry), where have you been all season? We have been playing must-win games all season since WH at Anfield in August. Nothing has changed and NOTHING will change win, lose or draw tonight. Regardless of result, we would STILL have to approach the Brighton game as a must-win game. That is the mentality we have been playing with all season s like Faithworks said, so why would anything change just cos we lost to City which is very possible btw?



02 Jan 2019 08:46:35
Firstly Happy New year to one and all may 2019 be as entertaining and exciting for all us Liverpool fans as 2018 with hopefully one major difference some silverware, hopefully the holy grail be fantastic to finally see us win it again before I die not that I'm planning to anytime soon. It will be very interesting to see if we sign anyone this window, I for one will not be too worried if we don't but I'm sure Klopp knows what we need for the final run in. Hopefully we get a decent result on Thursday against citee that leaves Spurs/ Chelsea at home and Utd/ Everton away as what would be considered as are only major hurdles left. I know every game has the potential of being a banana skin but I also believe that we have the best defence in the league and that's what is making the difference for us this time around. Here's hoping for a favourable result on Thursday and to us finally lifting the premiership in May of this year. Best wishes to you all my fellow reds believe, believe, believe. YNWA.



24 Dec 2018 07:28:19
Morning eds and fellow reds.
Merry Christmas and a happy New year to you all. Anyone able to give an update on all our injured players especially Gomez and Ox and when and if we might see them back sooner or later. Fantastic feeling been top at the crimbo hopefully wins against the toons, gooners and id settle for a draw against citee will make the festive season even more special enjoy the turkey boys have a good un. YNWA.

{Ed002's Note - Mid January for Gomez. Late January for Matip. I would think next season for AOC - or perhaps a cameo in extra time of the Champions League final.}

1.) 24 Dec 2018 09:01:23
Didn’t Djibril Cisse do that? Return for extra time in UCL final? Good omens. cheers for the foresight ED ;) I’ll place a bet now.

2.) 24 Dec 2018 09:03:14
I hope your right Ed002 and we get to the final of the champions league. 🤞.

3.) 24 Dec 2018 09:32:21
Cisse had a couple appearances before the final from memory.

4.) 24 Dec 2018 09:52:52
Cisse played in the semi final vs Chelsea and almost scored had his dink over Cech been more accurate.

5.) 24 Dec 2018 14:29:16
I think Harry Kewell came from nowhere to start in the final.

6.) 24 Dec 2018 15:23:52
And he will also score the winning goal against Barcelona in the final at 119 minute!

7.) 24 Dec 2018 19:13:27
It will be a LFC vs. Real Madrid Final. VVD will go up the highest for a corner kick, and score the winning goal. Land on Ramos's foot on the way down.



07 Dec 2018 07:44:33
Morning all

Any worry on Ox is there any possibility of him playing for us at all this season.


{Ed025's Note - very doubtful zippy, even when he gets physically fit it will take time to get match fit mate..

1.) 07 Dec 2018 13:53:48
What would you suggest the best way for him to get back to full fitness would be? If he will be too unfit for first team does that mean extensive training and spells in the u-23 team?

{Ed001's Note - extra training sessions, under-23 matches, maybe a behind closed doors friendly or two and some sub appearances when he is getting near.}

2.) 07 Dec 2018 17:17:11
Do you think it will take a year for full fitness like it did Ings?

{Ed001's Note - sharpness rather than fitness, yes. Fitness can come fairly quickly, as they can do other things to keep fit while healing. It is the mental aspect of learning to trust your body is not going to break down and to move as you did before the injury.}

3.) 07 Dec 2018 19:01:46
Thank you Ed. That's really detailed.

{Ed001's Note - I have a study somewhere I saved the link for about the recovery from ACL injuries. It just doesn't seem to be on this comp. Anyway, the study found, by monitoring the brain, that it took about 18 months for neural pathways to return to normal after an injury like that. I think it was 18 months, I am going by memory as I can't find the link I did have, just a piece on it which merely says 'months'. So it is about retraining the brain as much as the legs.}

4.) 07 Dec 2018 21:27:32
Spot on, Ed's. it is not so much the physical aspect of recovery that is difficult. it is the mental part cos an injury that serious causes a lot of damage to one's psyche and confidence cos a lot of mental strength and emotion is experienced during and in the aftermath of the injury. I ripped my knee 7 years a go (ripped rotulien tendon and a broken patella) and it still affected me when I went back to play cos I could not do the things I wanted to do as I was scared I would injure the same knee again or injure the other knee as it is the one that carries your whole body weight during recovery.

{Ed001's Note - it is not really that part that is the issue, that is a fairly quick recovery, just a confidence thing. It is the fact that you change the way you walk and run while out injured and you have to retrain your body to move the way it naturally wants to. That is the big issue that really takes the time.}

Agree about Gomez has been fantastic this season but injury record not great for a youngster if you want to be the best in the world you have to have the best players what's to say Gomez couldn't play full back more solid than TAA imo. Defence :-Alisonn, Gomez, Van Diyk, Koulibaly, Robertson if that's not enough to get you excited I don't know what is Ed0333.

{Ed0333's Note - Gomez is no right back mate he’s too haphazard there. I’m sure Koulibaly would be VVD money and I’m not sure we will spend that amount on a player again.

07 Jan 2019 22:11:59
Hope your trying to wind us up as we have enough rubbish at the club without adding another average player if we are in the market for another world class centre half then test Napoli's resolve and make a proper bid for Koulibaly.

{Ed0333's Note - And what message does that send to joe Gomez who was playing out of his skin before his injury.

18 Jul 2018 22:04:33
He'd get his place in the Everton team no bother 😁 ed25 . Look all joking aside a decent player but only in dribs and drabs has a great 25mins then wouldn't hear his name mentioned for the rest of the game be sorry to see him leave I've actually grown to like him but he would only be a squad player aside from injuries and that probably needs to be playing week in week out but won't get that at Liverpool this season plus we have to trim the squad he wouldn't be my 1st choice to go by a long shot but things need to be balanced out in all fairness.

{Ed025's Note - i have to be honest zippy he would probably do a decent job for us mate, but liverpool are on a different planet at the moment and you dont win titles with the likes of gini in your team im afraid..

Sturridge when fit is a great asset but like Maltip he is also made of glass if we could get a realistic price for him then it's time for him to move on, like the guy but his pace is gone so he doesn't suit our high tempo style of play also piss poor in a tackle and obviously as I said before made of glass would love to see him go somewhere stay fit and be successful but expect him to be injured by 1st week in September. Hope he makes me eat my words but doubt it.
