Question for Ed001, if he would have a rough idea.

The reason i started supporting Liverpool as a kid is because, before I was born, my dad was in a serious car accident, just before him and my mum were due to get married. Long story short, his story was featured in newspapers and a liverpool-supporting stranger was so moved by the story that he drove from Liverpool to Kilmarnock with a football signed by the entire 1977 European Cup Winning team. He showed me it when i was about 10, and it was the first bit of football memorabilia I had ever seen, and I was fascinated. From then on, I was red through and through.

Anyway, I hadn't seen it for years, and just assumed I had either imagined it, or it had been lost or damaged or something, but it turns out it's still safe and sound in my dad's possession, and will be passed to me when he dies. Now, i have NO intention of selling it, ever (for what it means to my dad, and as something i'll pass to my daughter, who i'm raising a red), but i've tried to have a look online to value it, and couldn't really find anything similar. Would you know how much something like that would be worth? It'll always have far more sentimental value than it would ever be worth in £, but I can't help being curious.

Cheers either way Ed.

{Ed001's Note - the only way something like that would ever be sold is via auctions. There is a database of auction prices, but you used to have to pay to access it, which would be the best way to get an idea. The best bet would be to speak to an auction house which have sports memorabilia sales, and ask for a valuation. Those kind of things are sold at specialist auctions, as that is how you get the best value for them.}

Cheers Ed, much appreciated. No point in me looking into it through auction houses, as it'll never leave this family as long as I live and breathe, was just curious as the only things I found online were like replica shirts that were signed years after the event.

Just have to make sure I raise the girls right, and they hold on to it. it's as good a way as any to get later generations to be Liverpool fans!

Thanks again, appreciate you taking the time out to reply.

{Ed001's Note - things like that were very few and far between back then, so it would be worth more than a shirt or similar, I would think. My cousin works at an auction house in Liverpool, he might have an idea. I will ask him for you.}


2.) 04 Mar 2017 17:38:45
If it's easy enough for you Ed, that would be great, but don't go to any trouble. probably better if the kids don't know how much it's worth!

{Ed001's Note - I will text him after the match, if we win, if not it will have to wait a few days as he is a Toffee and I will get nothing but stick if I message him when we have lost.}


3.) 04 Mar 2017 19:54:09
I know the feeling Ed! Ironically my dad is a Toffee too (despite the whole story above! ) . If I ever miss a game for any reason, I know Liverpool have lost if I get a text from him around the final whistle.

But HEY! We won, so go revel in telling your cousin!

And thanks again man, that's well above-and-beyond.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, good to have an excuse to talk to family.}

Saw James Milner was interviewed after the game, but couldn't hear it. Did they mention what his run of games is at now for Scoring and winning? I know he was a few behind Vassell the last time i heard, but that was before Hull and Today. Anybody any idea?

Rugby Parker

1.) 01 Oct 2016 16:59:04
I think it's 3 games in a row.


2.) 01 Oct 2016 18:08:30
I'm sure motd said he's only one or two behind.


3.) 01 Oct 2016 18:11:49
Sorry Gotklopp, didn't mean consecutive games. I'm fairly sure Darius Vassell holds the record for like 60-odd games in a row where he scored and his team won that particular game. Unless I missed one fairly recently where Milner scored and we lost, Milner will now only be a couple of games behind.

Anyone confirm?


4.) 01 Oct 2016 18:31:10
Cheers Fencey, much appreciated. Tried to find it on google, but "James Milner score win" isn't the most elegant of google searches!


5.) 01 Oct 2016 21:00:01
It's 44 games where Milner scores and his team wins.

Just read the interview with Markovic on ssn website, seems like a very mature head on young shoulders. Really looking forward to seeing him in the team soon.

Rugby Parker

1.) 20 Aug 2014 13:58:16
Yes, He looked very matured in the interview


2.) 20 Aug 2014 14:54:00
Fancy sending him a love letter Harry?


3.) Whose to say Harry hasn't been singing sweet nothings into the lads ear already? lol

Just wanna say, whatever happens today, it's been a cracking season, enjoyed the ride, and it's already been a huge success. Thanks to all the eds and regular posters for being the perfect foil for an enjoyable year of football, and let's hope even the most negative of posters can find something to be happy about when the curtain comes down.

I had to do a quick check to make sure it was the same fella, and it turns out that yes, Gabriel Paletta, the young argentine defender we had on our books back in the day, has been called up for the Italy squad for their game against Spain! Don't remember that much about him other than a few games here and there, but congratulations to him, that's quite a rise in stature.

Just thought i'd post in case anyone wanted to add him to their "one we let get away/one we missed out on" list for future moanings!

Rugby Parker

1.) I thought you were mistaken when I seen 'Italy squad', but I just read on another website he has an Italian passport and has been playing well in Serie A as part of 3 centre backs - amazing .

People are losing their minds here. I love coutinho, but 120m would be more than a fair price for him. That would buy 3 players, admittedly the coutinho replacement wouldn't be quite as good, but the other 2 could displace players that aren't quite up to it. A great cd, a right back more suited than clyne, and a slight downgrade on coutinho would improve the team overall, and that's all i care about.

I'd hate to see him go, i really would, but we'd all move on and come through the other side a more complete team if it happened.

I haven't heard us being linked with "clinching sphincter" before. is he solid defensively? Is he good at dribbling? Can he stand up to an offensive pummelling?

I love Liverpool FC, but i'm struggling to understand why a lot of you are taking the hump with Udinese about this?

We've broken the rules, tapped a player up, and the way to "sweep this under the carpet" is to pay the asking price. but we're not doing it.

Bottom line, we screwed up, so either pay Udinese the money to ignore what we did, or walk away and live with any consequences. It's in no way Udinese's fault that this has become a drawn-out mess.

All the best mate, hope they get to the bottom of it and it's nothing to be concerned about.

Hmmmmm, surely "Enriquez" would like to know which mid table EPL team he's supposed to be signing for?

Welcome back Sydney, always appreciated yer banter on here, and good to hear you're in a good place.

Very similar groups for Liverpool and Man Utd, I can see both qualifying top.

It was rebellion that was partly responsible for me supporting Liverpool too! My dad's a blue, and I decided fairly young it would be good just to wind him up. best decision i've ever made!

While I agree with most of your post MK, Hazard's best season in France was his last, where he scored 22 goals in total (league, cup and europe), and he was 21, so not exactly comparable.

Admittedly Mbappe is playing for a better team than that Lille team though.

Also saying 30M euros to be a rotational player would be what you would spend seems a tad ridiculous, in the same post as saying he could be the best in the world. Ibe went for £15m last season, was older than Mbappe, had played less first team football, and has NEVER been described as potentially the best in the world!

A very good post wonderWoodburn, It's no coincidence that the manager sacking ratio increasing has come at the same time as less and less youngsters are given a chance.

. played the ball first.

Honestly, I don't see much in it. Bit OTT, but so was the first challenge.

My theory. both players look really short. Explosion of short-man syndrome by 2 different manlets, who will now be laughing about it.

If Keita signs (unlikely), and he scores during a game i'm watching with my daughter, i'll allow her to cheer.
