I live in Poole and have seen Souness shopping in M&S in Westbourne a few times. I saw him this week looking at the soup section and he chose OXtail. I spoke to him at the till and asked if he had any inside info and he put 2 fingers up at me on each hand in a VV shape.

He was clearly giving signals as to who we will sign next ;)

So we are signing Spock? Lol.


2.) 08 Aug 2017 10:19:16
Thank god he didn't pick up the Mario Batali sauce!


3.) 08 Aug 2017 10:32:47
Souness shops in lidl, he pushes king kenny round in the trolley, so u know you have fabricated that rumour.


4.) 08 Aug 2017 10:43:37
M&S? Messi and Suarez.


5.) 08 Aug 2017 11:32:27
Are you sure the V V signs meant that?

When your an ex top player, playing in a top team, giving top analysis on a top satelite channel, separating the men from the boys, you don tike to be disturbed when choosing your top soup for big boys.

OP, your creativity needs some work but you get a "A" for effort.

My son has just shown me a pic that Salah put on his Instagram story showing his ankle in some kind of ice pack. Any idea if he has a serious issue?

Nutmonkey

1.) 04 Mar 2018 10:23:38
Nothing serious, will probably sit out the game vs Porto.


2.) 04 Mar 2018 10:34:02
Interesting to see what the team is v Porto. CL is a massive game and Utd are up next.


3.) 04 Mar 2018 10:47:58
For Porto I’d bench Salah, Firmino and Mane.
The rest of the team should be fringe players.
I’d start Karius, he’s in form and has good momentum.
I’d pick Klavan, Matip, Moreno and Gomez/ Clyne in defence. Not sure about Gomez fitness.
Midfield would be Milner, Wijnaldum and Can
Forwards would be Lallana, Solanke and Woodburn.

There is no way we should concede 5 goals but if we do concede 4 then bring on the forwards. 🤝.


4.) 04 Mar 2018 10:57:07
Agreed Ron, I'd love to see Woodburn given some game time, as well as Ings.


5.) 04 Mar 2018 11:03:32
I'd go with that Ron except my subs would be on at 3. Id also like to see Ings get a chance. Ings, Solanke and Lallana for me.


6.) 04 Mar 2018 11:14:53
Wouldn’t mess with the back 4 maybe get to ht an sub the full backs if it’s going well.


7.) 04 Mar 2018 11:17:14
Full strength eleven for the first half, then bench our forwards for defensive-minded players in the second.


8.) 04 Mar 2018 11:49:20
I wouldn't change too much. Maybe Woodburn in for Salah, Solanke/ Ings in for Bobby, Lallana in for Ox, Milner in for Can and maybe Moreno in for Robbo.

Wins breed confidence!

I wouldn't risk making wholesale changes and disrupting the flow of the team.


9.) 04 Mar 2018 13:40:10
I'd go Karius Gomez lovren vvd Robertson - keep a similar back five. Milner, gini, can, solanke, mane lallana. Still strong, youth on the bench, plus firmino and Salah just in case.


10.) 04 Mar 2018 14:29:09
I get the feeling klopp will go nearly full strength, i can see lallana, milner and gomez coming in for henderson, trent and salah. I wouldn't like it if he changed much more than that, even with a 5-0 lead.


11.) 04 Mar 2018 16:18:14
We may be 5 up but now is not the time to play the kids. We scored 5 so in theory so can they. I think we should rest a few, salah and mane maybe but we still need to field a decent team.


12.) 04 Mar 2018 18:28:32
It’s harder to score 5 when you’re 5 behind.
Get 2 and you’re still faced with a massive ask.
Conversely get 2 up in the first game and your opponents have to take some risks to get back in the game.

5-0 up, this tie is over IMO.


 

 

08 Sep 2017 16:15:24
So do we think Gomez will keep his place or will Klopp bring TAA back in tomorrow?

Same goes for LB Moreno again or Robertson?

Other than those 2 positions and Gk I see the rest of the team being same as Arsenal game.

Nutmonkey

1.) 08 Sep 2017 16:32:54
Same team that beat arsenal feserves to start for me.


2.) 08 Sep 2017 16:52:05
I wouldn't be surprised if Milner came back into the fold as left back. I hope klopp goes with gomez for RB. TAA I'd very promising prospect but still a little iffy defencively. Gomez is more defence minded.

I'm hoping we get to see AOC in a red shirt. 60th minute sub?


3.) 08 Sep 2017 19:15:41
Milner seems an unpopular choice but he was excellent against city last season. Inexperience can cost at this level which is why I would pick our most experienced options for full backs. Milner lb and gomez RB or Robertson lb and Milner RB. That said I think klopp will probably go moreno lb. Not sure who'll get the nod for RB but I think it would be a shame not to use Milner as like I say he was fantastic last term against city. I'd like to see karius given a decent run in goal but I suspect mignolet will get ghe nod. The rest of the team picks itself really. Unless he goes 442 znd plays Danny s? I think he could be good against city.

I know moreno is more experienced than Robertson but robbo FEELS more experienced as he seems wiser when it comes to making defencive decisions.


4.) 09 Sep 2017 00:00:09
I wouldn't mind 442 with Danny but our front 3 are irreplacable. Personally feel Gomez has to play, not sure if this where Robbo becomes a legend or we keep the exact same side as Arsenal. Thought Coutinho would have been a good option from the bench but maybe 30 minutes of the Ox would be ok instead.

Eds 1,2 and 25, what are your predictions for top 4 going by current squads? (I know things will change a lot in next few days but maybe I'll ask again after TW shuts :)

Nutmonkey

{Ed025's Note - im saying...united, chelsea, city, liverpool...in that order NM..


1.) 29 Aug 2017 17:09:15
No Spurs Arsenal or the Eve ed mate?

{Ed025's Note - no KR, the southern softies are in decline and the mighty blues are in transition mate..


2.) 29 Aug 2017 17:27:14
Transition? don't let Ed002 hear you say that.

{Ed025's Note - but we are irish..


3.) 29 Aug 2017 17:41:27
I really think Everton will do well and even better next season when everyone settles, as long as you finish behind us ed 25 :)

{Ed025's Note - getting players to gel quickly is very difficult owl, maybe not this season mate but next year we will pushing you all the way..


4.) 29 Aug 2017 17:43:43
I'd be gutted in one way if your prediction was right Ed25, Utd are the last team I want to win in. is even rather your lot won it :) . I think 4th is about right for us. maybe 3rd with some luck.

Come on Ed 1 and 2.there will be a prize for the closest Ed :)

{Ed001's Note - I do not do predictions, they are bad luck.}


5.) 29 Aug 2017 17:54:24
Of course, Ed025. Next year. Or the year after. Or perhaps even later. Hope springs eternal.

{Ed025's Note - slowly slowly catchee monkey ra..

Question for Ed01

Out of all the hundreds of possible targets that have been bounced about recently, or possible names that haven't, who would you have liked to see come into the squad (realistic targets only) and then what would be your ideal lineup assuming your preferred players had come in?

NB - this is in no way trying to gain information on transfers - this is hypothetical only. I would just like to know what players/ line ups you would like to see at LFC?

Thanks.

Nutmonkey

{Ed001's Note - line ups isn't really my thing, as the team would vary depending on opposition if it was up to me. For all people say don't tinker etc, let them worry about us etc, even the greatest of them all, Sir Bob Paisley used to change his tactics and players depending on opponent.

However I would have liked to see us sign Koulibaly. He is not ideal, but he is big, strong and fast, plus he is very used to playing a high line and concentrates well. He is a bit lacking technically, still a bit raw, but technique can be refined more easily than the wrong mentality.

Other than that, I have to be honest I think four signings is plenty, especially as 3 will be in the team and there is likely to be another change, in terms of Clyne out for either Gomez or TAA, so the team will lose all its togetherness if you buy more.}


1.) 24 Aug 2017 15:59:05
Thanks Ed, appreciate you taking time to answer 👍🏻.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}


2.) 24 Aug 2017 16:23:25
Agree with this Ed although if Couts does go I'd like to see someone like Insigne or Keita come into midfield. I'm not convinced Milners best position in the midfield and losing Coutinho means we're pretty thin on creativity, particularly with Lallana injured.


3.) 24 Aug 2017 16:53:08
We're all fairly glad we signed mane despite his mentality so sometimes it's worth the risk.


4.) 24 Aug 2017 17:12:06
I'm all for giving players are chance to settle, especially if they're young and come from abroad but migs isn't young, wasn't new to the league and been with us close to 4 years. Is he going to improve much more than where he's at? The only player who's done that is Lucas but he was young, foreign and had to adapt to a new position so he neede more time. Migs has been keeper his entire life!


5.) 24 Aug 2017 17:45:45
Apparently ED. The only player Paisley tried to do a man marking role on was Alan Ball and it failed miserably.

Its in his autobiography, I highly recommend it.

A brilliant book about a brilliant, quietly spoken, decent genius of a man.

YNWA.

{Ed001's Note - he was the greatest of all time.}


 

 

24 Aug 2017 11:44:26
So mine and my sons first trip to Anfield was an awesome experience (despite the 7 hour drive up due to accidents and roadworks 😫)

We got to our seats just as YNWA started and that was a spine tingling moment. The first 20 minutes was incredible both the fact we scored 3 and the noise inside Anfield.

One question to regular match goers. after Hoffenheim scored their 2nd, Anfield went very quiet. Is this something that happens at home matches? I know it was a bit nervy but with 10 mins left they needed to score 3 which was incredibly unlikely (even with our defence 😆) so don't think it was purely the crowd being nervous. The singing and the chants just seem to stop and I'm not sure why. We both carried on singing but no-one around seemed to want to join in!

Anyway, aside from that it was a great first match and hoping now to get up there a bit more.

Nutmonkey

1.) 24 Aug 2017 11:57:54
Hm so the atmosphere was actually pretty bad then?
Lots watching on TV where concerned but wr thought it was because they usually turn down the crowd volume so we can actually hear the commentators.
Usually Anfield is bouncing specially if winning and the atmosphere can be emotional it’s so amazing.
Probably nerves as we all know even a 3 goal lead sometimes isn’t good enough with our defence even with 10 minutes left xD.


2.) 24 Aug 2017 12:00:01
Just realized you said "after their second goal" just read it as after their goal xD
What was the atmosphere like for the prior 80 minutes? Was awful on the telly xD.


3.) 24 Aug 2017 12:06:58
I felt it was great atmosphere for most of the game, slight lull after the first goal but other than a few minutes then, great right up until the last 10mins.

Others who have been before might say different as they have something to compare it to but I felt most of the game was nice and loud and lots of singing 👍🏻.


4.) 24 Aug 2017 12:08:03
Don't get wrong though, I'm not complaining at all, just curious.

I feel lucky we managed to get tickets and my son has been bouncing off the walls for the last week and again this morning 😊.


5.) 24 Aug 2017 13:16:01
Hard to truly gauge the atmosphere through a glass screen to be fair.

Is there a danger the ban might actually increase if we lose the appeal?

Nutmonkey

{Ed001's Note - yes if the FA deem it a frivolous appeal.}
