LFC have made a genuine enquiry for Levezzi. so I have been told

A Liverpool statement read: "Liverpool Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of defender Dejan Lovren from Southampton.

Welcome Dejan, long may you plug up our leaks.

I don't quite understand how people have rated this one as "unbelievable!"


2.) Unbelievable because he is so awesome its almost unbelievable that he has signed? Seriously though he's a really good acquisition, out of all the signings we've made this is the most exciting one in my opinion.


3.) 29 Jul 2014 00:08:21
I think it's more like 20 people don't want to welcome him to LFC because he doesn't play for Madrid or Barca and didn't cost £50million.

Well happy with this signing, welcome Dejan - if I didn't love him before, def do now after seeing how happy he looked to be signing his contract. He'll be excellent


4.) Whoops, my mistake. I meant to put write: "I don't know how people can click on the "disagree" button for this!"
I'd agree that it's unbelievable, but. let's be honest, we all saw it coming!


5.) Great acquisition but in the grander scheme of things it's worrying what's going on at Southampton. Can sympathise with them as not so long ago we had dodgy owners too.

Hi Guys,

I believe we have reached agreement for Lovern. Any confirmation yet Eds?

RedalLover

{Ed001's Note - he has spoken to Koeman and asked for the deal to go through, that is all I know. He wants to leave still.}


1.) He will sign in next 48 hours and then fly out to join squad in the states


2.) He will sign in 42.5 hours and swim to the states


3.) Hi ed 1 is this a new bid or original bid saints rejected?

{Ed001's Note - I believe, as I have not been told anything about a new bid being placed, that it is the previous one that is now being negotiated.}

Went to the game last night and returned very early this morning with very mixed emotions.

The first half was horrible to watch. The football was predictable and to be quite honest didn't look any better than the dull and uninspired later games under Rogers. What really concerned me was Klopps body language.

He was cross armed (defensive), escaping certain moments by turning away sometimes with his eyes shut (scared or frightened), I lost count of how many times he looked to the skies (generally lost or seeking divine intervention) . His mood is very different.

Second half improved but not by much. Stoke did a number on us and is pretty much a blue print to any club we play against. The only thing we were really okay with was getting to the second ball. We played back more than I have seen in a while and considering Stoke had good possession this just amplifies the fact that some of these players will never be good enough.

Jo Allen is one of these players in my opinion and he was as good as I have seen last night. In fact better than most.

This squad is a good way from CL and will never win a title.

As far as Klopp is concerned, I just wonder if Ed002 thoughts on him are correct and perhaps he is not entirely the right answer to LFC. I really hope not.

I know many will disagree with saying something like this but I would suggest they need to look at him closely and realise how quickly he has changed - body language wise anyway

On a positive note, find tickets for the final. Its been a while.

1.) 27 Jan 2016 10:52:53
I think your reading in to it too much. He obviously loves the club hence the reason being very nervous I myself couldn't watch the penalties just like him. he's took us to a final in 4 months, with a team he has had no input to.

What does that day about him as a manager I have every faith he will bring back the glory says.


2.) 27 Jan 2016 11:08:57
I hope you are right Chris. As a matter of interest. did you go last night?

I wasn't just talking about the pens mate, that I can understand.


3.) 27 Jan 2016 11:11:49
I think you're reading too much into this.
He's probably nervous as he doesn't have complete faith in the squad (so many of the fans don't)
You've got to remember that these players are not Klopps, They're Rodgers signings.
Just the sheer calibre of players we are being linked too shows me we can attract quality. Klopp can attract quality that Brendan couldn't (Gerrard texting players to come)

I think we need to enjoy the fact that we're actually going to Wembley. Klopp has taken us to the final.
I have complete faith in the guy. And when he gets the players he wants I think we'll be s force to be reckon with.


4.) 27 Jan 2016 11:19:24
He shows emotions just like a fan I'm sure you were frustrated at times, I wouldn't read to much into it. Rafa showed no emotions but loved the club. Klopp is human that's invested in the game and winning watch him at Dortmand you'll see some of the same body language.


5.) 27 Jan 2016 11:19:53
You need to stop panicking, we all knew it would be a bumpy ride.


6.) 27 Jan 2016 11:29:42
He's nervous and looking for divine inspiration because he knows he can't trust half of the players.


7.) 27 Jan 2016 11:51:42
He is the right Manager for sure IMO. I don't mind him being nervous, frustrated or too scared to look. He is a passionate manager and also he has a right to be nervous because we do fumble a lot of simple things currently.
But this is not his chosen squad. Once he has his own players (if he can get them) then he can be judged, but we are in the final, although we didn't play well at all.
On a positive Flanagan i thought was amazing considering how long he has been out. A future captain i would not mind betting.


8.) 27 Jan 2016 13:01:10
Wow. the guy has been here only 4 months.

And really think you should not bring ED02 in this because every time we need to bring someone in the club, we can't have ED02 analyze their body language.


9.) 27 Jan 2016 13:13:20
pathetic post,

questioning him after 4 months? have you seen how he celebrated that 5th goal against norwich or most of our goals in fact.

he's a passionate/ emotional guy who wears his heart on his sleeve.

why are fans always looking for something that isn't there or a conspiracy theory?

I recall 30 years ago, looking at the next fixture and thinking. yup 2 points here, no worries.

I am starting to think like this again. JK and the squad, well done to you all and thank you.

RedalLover

1.) 03 Dec 2015 03:10:39
I know what you mean. Back in the day it didn't really matter who the opposition was we always knew we were going to give them a game and that it was always likely that we were going to win. bit of a novelty in recent times but I watched the match and thought - Newcastle at the weekend - three points.


2.) 03 Dec 2015 12:17:16
2 points?

Must have been more than 30yrs ago, pre Chinny Hill.

Some Liverpool fans these days are simply not fans at all. I have to say I was disgusted to see big numbers leaving with nearly 15 minutes to play. I don't care who the manager is, this can only have a negative effect on the team.

The ground is dismally quiet, and there is no need for visiting teams to feel intimidated.

Not good enough. by far. Get a grip people, you know who you are.

1.) 09 Nov 2015 19:11:35
I feel like not going th home games sometimes me an my mate are the only ones that sing in the main stand its a joke anfield is just full of tourists nowadays sad to say.


2.) 09 Nov 2015 19:14:06
This has been happening for years so why does everyone now feel the need to jump on the bandwagon once Klopp highlights the issue?


3.) 09 Nov 2015 19:23:07
The decline has been happening for years too. 12th man my arse!


4.) 09 Nov 2015 21:13:05
If you don`t support us when we lose, Don`t support us when we win. Hopeless fans, these people are.


5.) 09 Nov 2015 22:05:38
Hate the term tourist fan. Not everyone can commit to every week, and some people who can only go maybe once or twice a year, it's the highlight of their month or something. I live miles away and have been around 7/8 times in the last two years, insanely jealous of those who can make it every week. Every time I watch I love it, and sing.
If you don't want tourist fans no one will be able to see the game except the same people that do every week? The season ticket holder are the ones who should make the noise and everyone else joins in, you can expect someone who goes maybe once a month to start chants etc.


6.) 09 Nov 2015 22:35:19
Agree 100% with Fencey, only adding a 'tourist' fan would not leave the ground early as they appreciate the Occassion of being at Anfield. I'd be pointing the finger towards fans going week in week out wanting to beat the rush home. The noise is a collective of team success, corporate packages, tired season ticket holders and some 'tourists'. IMO.


7.) 09 Nov 2015 22:37:33
Fencey, you'll also see, the people who say tourist fan, want there team, to be a large global brand.


8.) 10 Nov 2015 00:03:54
It's not the tourist fans it's so expensive the average age of fans is over 50 I was in a social club before one game waiting for a friend I looked around the club everyone was in their 50s.

{Ed007's Note - Did they all have paper Ed001 masks on?}


9.) 10 Nov 2015 00:14:34
Stop trying to blame a 'type' of fan.

Fans fall into two categories - those who are there to support the team (sing, stay to the end etc) and those who are there purely to be 'entertained'.

Its a double edged sword as, mentioned above, the fans in the ground (whether they live 5 minutes walk or 25 hours flight away) are as important (in my opinion) to the team performance as the players themselves - the 12th man.

I haven't been to Anfield for many years, but remember the atmosphere from my previous visits with great joy, especially European nights (anywhere in the ground) and league games in the Kop. Makes me sad and ashamed to hear of such a walk-out. Remember, we don't sell prawn sandwiches at Anfield (or do we now? Could that be the reason? Maybe we should go back to cheese and pickle being our most exotic flavour?! )


10.) 10 Nov 2015 01:09:54
I call bull on this fictitious notion that there are these armies of "tourist" fans who are invading Anfield, and ruining the atmosphere and often leaving games early.

What ****ing tourists are visiting Liverpool in early November?

Give me a break. The fact is, the problematic fans are likely just aging Baby Boomers Liverpool fans, who have been key fans over the years, but are now retired, have plenty of time on their hands (so they can catch many games), but are happy to pop out early to avoid traffic jams. Boomers have lived with the results of their generational population boom: traffic, congestion, pollution, whatever. So, they leave early to avoid all that.

Tourists. Give me a break.


11.) 10 Nov 2015 04:59:16
I was a "tourist fan" when I went to see Liverpool at St. James' Park when I was a student at Newscastle University, and let me tell you that it is not easy showing up, and acting like you own the place. Not to mention that the "regular fans" are not exactly the nicest people either sometimes, and that can be intimidating for us "tourist fans".

Think about from the perspective of people who visit Liverpool, sometimes from continents away, just for a day to see the game, having spend vast amounts of money, finding time in between busy schedules, and this is probably something they have been dreaming and planning of doing for years. And then when you show and want to experience that once in a life experience, the regulars start muttering in undertones about the stadium being full of tourists, who seemingly are tretrespassing on their beloved ground, and some people might just feel a little intimidated.


12.) 10 Nov 2015 10:47:27
Liverpool haven't had a 12th man at home games for years. At away games the support is much much louder and better.

Locals dislike daytrippers and often make their feelings heard when a daytripper starts singing with a wrong accent or BS like that. They are sitting there only complaining and rarely supporting. that's a fact jack! 90% of the time those leaving early are locals, the daytrippers stick around to get a feel of anfield etc. I do, locals leave early to avoid a lot of traffic etc. Plus 'tourists' is just BS, after visiting Liverpool 3 times, there really isn't much apart from the football.

I think you are talking utter rubbish Anonymous Woolback.

Are you forgetting the two point plank shots he saved earlier in that match that any keeper would have been forgiven for letting in. or the fact that he may well have been concussed. or that he had a Liverpool shirt on and was doing his best to represent that. Perhaps not having a rest when everyone else had the world cup in their sights would have fixed the loss or maybe the death threats would have convinced him to stay at melwood.

I actually agree with your opinion of recurrence Kloppsboss and there seems to be some facts to back it up which I have pasted below. What I think is that we have no idea what went on in medical but I am certain they are aware of the past injury, we do not know what the club plans are for the player, we are not football managers with detailed knowledge and experience at the highest level. We need to trust the club to make expensive decisions and simply welcome and support him if he arrives. If the lad gets injured again then so be it. but if he scores the winner in the next CL final. pay the price!

Paste:: Applies to US Football


Copied from US National Library of Medicine

Background

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a severe event for a footballer, but it is unclear if the knee injury rate is higher on returning to football after ACL injury.

Objective

To study the risk of knee injury in elite footballers with a history of ACL injury compared with those without.

Method

The Swedish male professional league (310 players) was studied during 2001. Players with a history of ACL injury at the study start were identified. Exposure to football and all time loss injuries during the season were recorded prospectively.

Results

Twenty four players (8%) had a history of 28 ACL injuries in 27 knees (one rerupture) . These players had a higher incidence of new knee injury of any type than the players without ACL injury (mean (SD) 4.2 (3.7) v 1.0 (0.7) injuries per 1000 hours, p  =  0.02). The risk of suffering a knee overuse injury was significantly higher regardless of whether the player (relative risk 4.8, 95% confidence interval 2.0 to 11.2) or the knee (relative risk 7.9, 95% confidence interval 3.4 to 18.5) was used as the unit of analysis. No interactive effects of age or any other anthropometric data were seen.


Conclusion

The risk of new knee injury, especially overuse injury, was significantly increased on return to elite football after ACL injury regardless of whether the player or the knee was used as the unit of analysis.

Ed001, for your information, I work indirectly for the police and other agencies in something known as witness assessment. I don't believe anything is dishonest about that nor that you have the right to judge. And gibberish it may be but the only gibbering I saw was your reply to the initial post, without relevance to what Sam had said or indeed other answers. As far as I was aware knee jerking is a reaction without thought to some occurrence to which the knee jerker has some "emotional" attachment to.

Why make it personal?

RedalLover

{Ed001's Note - I don't care what you do, and the knee jerk reaction has clearly gone over your head. Now my little precious, you were getting all personal about Klopp but now you are all narky about it being personal, what is wrong with you? Try winding your neck in a bit and you won't get sniped at. You want to carry on with this belief that you can judge how Klopp is feeling the job is going by his demeanour on the sidelines go right ahead. In case it escaped your notice I was replying to your post, not the initial post, so stop bringing that up for heavens sake. Sometimes I just wonder why I bother.}

Ed001, whilst I agree with your comments, what relevance is there to this thread mate? The comment was made by Sam that we controlled the game, we didn't. Klopps time with us is nearly 4 months not a couple and in that time we have trashed city and lost badly to west ham. Yes that's ups and downs and the "knee jerk" reaction usually comes after any game good or bad it would be no reaction at all if it was 2 weeks after the fact.

My concern for klopp isn't is he good enough. Its how different EPL is to BL. So many games, injuries, lack of funding, stevie c. why?, and squad players that are simply not good enough and so on.

I have made a living out of understanding body language and JKs at the moment is at best defensive. I think JK is the best thing to have happened to LFC for years, I hope the club back him with everything they can and yes, next season will be a much better bench mark.

RedalLover

{Ed001's Note - what the hell is this gibberish? You don't even understand the meaning of the knee jerk reaction saying and you are trying to claim you have insight into his body language from what he does on the sidelines during a match? Utter and complete nonsense, if you are making your living like that then it is robbing one. You might want to take some time and actually know your subject, because what you are pontificating about Klopp shows you have no idea about the man.}
