Told the wife, "Big game tonight, Liverpool are playing Bayern Munich. "

There was a gap of about 5 mins and then she said, "Is he good this Munich? "

"What are you talking about? " I said.

"You said Liverpool are buying Munich! Is he an attacker, defender or what? "

Gotta love being married!

My wife would have said "that's a bit unfair, the whole Liverpool team playing a bloke called Brian. "

Mrs Keague would just tut at me and storm off ๐Ÿ™„.

Iโ€™m also going with a tut. the โ€˜do you really need to stay up past midnight just to watch a football gameโ€™ stopped a while back.

Reminded my missus about the game ( in other words hint hint, the kids need to be in bed early ) all she was interested in was doing a bet
3-2 to us she's gone. Let's hope she's right for once

Thank god she doesn't read this site.

Christ I have it better than I thought,
My wife normally says "I want to watch Eastenders, can you go out to watch the match? ". I kid you not lol.

Hi all, just a bit of banter.

We live in Japan, so I woke up this morning to the news we had our first signing. Sat at the breakfast table with the wife and kid. Informed them that we had made our first signing, Fabinho. Quick as a flash my youngest comes back with, "Is he a keeper? "

I stand behind our players but couldn't help a giggle at that!


1.) 29 May 2018 00:05:44
Got to love kids. Love thes post ๐Ÿ‘.

2.) 29 May 2018 00:06:43
I don't think we will sign a keeper. Or if we do I believe Karius will keep his place. Controvesial view I know.

3.) 29 May 2018 00:09:41
We will sign a keeper and Karius wonโ€™t keep his place. Not controversial view, I know.

4.) 29 May 2018 00:55:59
Lol, I dunno, if he drops Karius for good then klopp has to say it was a mistake to sign him. I also think klopp might decide to stick with him after the rough time he's had. And I also think he is a good keeper. Those mistakes were psychological. And loris now has a type of experience that you can't buy. I think we may sign a keeper but if its butland I think Karius will get the no1, navas too. Loris never recovered from the first mistake. He won't do that again.

5.) 29 May 2018 02:19:01
Haha! Sounds like a nice family! Where are you at? Greetings from Fukuoka!

6.) 29 May 2018 08:33:08
Prince Hendo, I agree with your post except one point. If Klopp drops Karius, it does not mean it was a mistake to sign him. It does not work that way, IMO. Karius has improved since coming in and during that time, he must have been convinced that he was looking like the right man for the job. Then Sat happened. His errors does not remove from the fact that Karius has improved us since he came in so if Klopp sells him, it would only mean that he thinks he can't bounce back from this and to protect him, he has to go. That does not mean he made a mistake signing him. It only means circumstances have changed hence, other parameters have to be considered. It is not and either/ or situation, IMO.



12 Apr 2017 00:32:02
Hi all, been a while. Wanted to ask about Hendo.

A few years back, old red nose wrote about Hendo in his book - ". Henderson runs from his knees, with a straight back, while the modern footballer runs from the hips. We thought his gait might cause him problems later in his career. "

At the time I thought he was just stirring things up like he did with the comments on Gerrard. For the past couple of seasons JH is beginning to have a serious amount of time away from the pitch. As much as I would hate it, was Fergie right or are these things totally unrelated?

A player like Sturridge is likely to be shown the door because of injury. Is Hendo moving into that territory?


1.) 12 Apr 2017 05:37:41
From what I understand the injury he has now is not related to his gait.

2.) 12 Apr 2017 09:43:48
He has plantar (can't spell second word! ) facieitis which is a foot injury that actually can turn into a condition to be managed (as it has with Hendo) rather than ever he cured. In hendo its affected his heel. My dad got this and it affect the ball of his foot (allegedly from stepping awkwardly on an acorn! ) and it took over a year to settle down. And my dad is no athlete!

It has as much to do with Hendo's gait as Shrek has to do with beauty.

๐Ÿฅƒ ๐Ÿ‘ƒ was just stirring.

3.) 12 Apr 2017 14:41:56
Hey reds first time poster but have read this sight multiple times a day since the babelcopter and ken aguero days. Love the sight and appreciate everything the eds do (esp ed2 dealing with the retromingent glifnards.

What hendo suffers from is plantar fasciitis. Believe me it is no joke. I suffered for two years with it. Literally there were times I collapsed to my feet in pain upon getting out of my car. I spent well over $10k seeking treatment to no avail over the two years. Then one day I went to a running store thinking a top notch pair of running shoes would help. The lady in fact said no you need to get this product. The company is called triggerpoint but I forget the exact item. Anyways she had me do an exercise that took about a minute. Immediate relief. I performed this exercise twice daily (and still do to this day) and have zero problems. I guess the point is I know some of tou (ed1 squaretomato) have contacts at the club if there is anyway to get this info to them. It costs a mere $100 usd and I would swear by it. It's a long shot but this thing performed a miracle for me and maybe it could help our beloved captain.

4.) 12 Apr 2017 20:16:05
Red nosed whiskey face was just peeved that he got roundly rejected by Hendo cos he picked LFC over his mob. That's all. Hendo's foot condition has nothing to do with whatever the bitter old man had to say.

{Ed025's Note - thats not a very nice thing to say about the most successful british manager of all time N red..

5.) 13 Apr 2017 12:34:21
Agree with you, Ed025, its not a nice thing to say!

True though.

{Ed025's Note - he got on my tits at times zeddicus but he was one hell of a manager mate..

Hi all,

Just seen the first training session pics and that buzz of a new season and that anything is possible is upon me : )

I am 100% behind Liverpool, players and management. We win together - we lose together.

I believe that we can have a good season and that Brendan Rodgers and team can deliver a successful season.

We are Liverpool !!! So let's start showing it.

C'MON you red men !!!



1.) 10 Jul 2015 06:58:08
Wish Rodgers had the same mindset. If we win, it will be all him. If we lose, it will be someone else's fault.

2.) 10 Jul 2015 07:57:57
Sorry potclay- as much as I want br to be a success at lfc for the clubs sake, I no longer think it will happen.
At this point in his career he just has too many flaws to be a CL level manager.
We won't get higher than 5th or 6th while he is manager.
I believe he has to go before we have any chance of making CL again.
We will make the usual slow start, get battered away from home a few times, and he'll be gone by xmas anyway.
You always have hope we can do well, as I hoped last January that we could get back into the top four. But looking at it more logically, for me next season is already a write off if br starts it as manager.

3.) 10 Jul 2015 08:30:00
With the squad we have and another two coming in, we are right up there to challenge the title.
We have some individual brilliance in our squad. they going to bail out BR.

4.) 10 Jul 2015 09:10:29
Liverpres you like many others are a hypocrit.
Your mentality is : if we win and finish 2nd it's Suarez or Bielsas success, if we finish 7th its Brendan's fault.

5.) 10 Jul 2015 11:12:44
Mate Rodgers was praised when we finished 2nd and he showed humility to learn things and implement it in 2013-14.In 2014-15 when we were struggling initially not many criticised him infact many of them felt the reason being loss of suarez.But once he started playing players out of position, was being arrogant to change his tactics,then people started losing faith in him.
Other thing is we had players with winning mentality on pitch in 2013-14 season.But when we loss such players it is the role of manager to instill such mentality in players examples being Sevilla,Atletico Madrid.

6.) 10 Jul 2015 12:08:57
The fact is FSG have decided Rodgers will get another season, and we'll do nothing but exacerbate the issue by writing him and the team off before they've kicked a ball.



11 Jun 2015 01:33:59
"What we can do is get behind the team, support the team, empower the team, inspire the team, rather than the other way round."

John Barnes.

Please can we be the reds that were admired around the world and mean it when we sing YNWA rather than this new negative breed of red that is appearing. We can succeed with any team and coach if we all get behind these players, coach and the whole team which we are part of.

Come on you Reds, Come on LIVERPOOL !!!


1.) 11 Jun 2015 15:06:22
He should refer his comments to the owners who have bottled it and are forcing failure down our throats by keeping BR

Ed 1, Did start with a caveat, stating i had no idea! lol

We did sign 2 midfielders in an area we had cover for. If Shaq is not working out its not beyond belief that he may look for something better.

I have no idea what's true or not but I was watching an interview with Souness the other day. He said that last season Klopp signed 2 midfielders (Shaqiri, Fabinho) and tried to sign another (Fekir) . All of which suggests he identifies the midfield as an area that needed/ needs strengthening. It is also true that many people are suggesting that the midfield will have a clearout (Lallana, Milner) I also remember before last season Gini being touted as surplus.

All of the above doesn't guarantee anything, but it does suggest that Klopp looking at another midfielder isn't as far fetched as some would believe.


{Ed001's Note - how many times will I have to say this before people listen? Klopp signed Shaqiri instead of Fekir. When he couldn't get Fekir, he went and got Shaqiri instead. He wanted 2 midfielders. He signed 2 midfielders. Last summer suggests he got exactly what he wanted.}

Heh heh - great debate!

The one thing we should all agree on is that the best person to make this decision is Mr. Klopp. The manager is the one person who really knows about these players because he is with them on a daily basis. Who should play Tex or Lallana - I have no opinion other than whoever starts they will get my full support. I find that we tend to second guess the mangers (past and present) too much, we are not experts, we are fans and anyone who says otherwise is deluded. Of course everyones entitled to an opinion, but that's all it is and try and do it with a touch of humility.

I remember reading an article about why he chose Liverpool in the first place - We offered more money than anyone else. He showed his true colours then and is now. We were happy to take him then, I guess we shouldn't be surprised, he hasn't changed, it's just we are on the wrong end of his greed this time.

"Nothing you have said makes any sense" - Ed

Hate to argue with you Ed but - "losing the best player in the league and losing sturridge" - John0123

That makes perfect sense. Every pundit and observer has said our biggest problem this season has been goals. More than the manager, defense, contracts, etc.

Some have even gone as far as defending Sterling for his poor play as he is being asked to be a striker rather than provider. Gerrard is our top scorer with more goals than our 4 strikers put together. Same problem when Torres was out and we had N'gog as backup.


{Ed001's Note - but that was used as an excuse for Rodgers, when it was Rodgers that chose the replacements, so the lack of goals is down to him.}

Langland and anyone else down on a Liverpool win.

It wasn't so long ago that statistics were being paraded around about results after midweek European games. It used to be common place for teams to drop points after playing in Europe. It says so much about the standard to even get close to winning the league that noone is talking about that anymore.

3 games in 7 days, 2 away, 1 in Germany against Bayern Munich and we won all 3. That's a mighty return in my eyes.

The biggest disappointment for me was Torres leaving, a real blow to the gut. Having been so good for us, to then turn his back on us for a rival was gutting. Fortunately it turned out alright and he was poor from the off for them.

Just heard that the Telegraph is saying that 8 premier league managers took bungs during the last transfer window.
