Merry Christmas and good turkey to all, Eds included, a massive thank you for putting up with our collective ramblings all year round. I've written a letter to santa complaining about the service and he's assured after many long years my present will finally be delivered, so it's official guys (and girls), Liverpool are all set to win the league.

Yes that is correct. I did give my word :)
Merry Christmas!

What a great time to get a goal, it was a joy to behold, that's what football is about. Mind you, if Everton had done the same thing I'd be saying the exact opposite, fine margins eh? Haha. I'll take a stoppage time victory away to Everton in the Merseyside Derby any day of the week. Very important victory too as it keeps us neck length ahead of Arsenal and keeps us right on the heels of Chelsea, who we have at Anfield later on. Also Sadio Mane has been nothing short of a revelation since signing - and no I'm not over-exaggerating because of his late winner.

Steven Gerrard is the greatest ever Liverpool player that I've watched in my lifetime, perhaps even the greatest ever Liverpool player. He is Mr Liverpool, captain fantastic, one of our very own, the man for the big occasions. For so many years He put our team on his back and carried us to success, I mean how many players cam say they captained a side with Djimi Traore in it to champions league success!? What He has achieved in football is highlighted by the sheer number of personal accolades he has in football: 3 FIFA World team of the year appearances; 8 PFA Team of the Year appearances and 1 PFA player of the year award.

Then there's all the football legends congratulating him on his illustrious career and wonderful ability that he showed on the pitch; Kaka, Lampard, Henry, Matthaus, the list is endless; Fergie even said He was more complete than Vieira. Gerrard has dug us out of many holes and worn the captain's armband longer than any other, he's also created so many iconic moments. There's the FA Cup Final of 2006 brace, his Champions league final header and who can forget that special, "Oh ya Beauty" goal? Gerrard has done so much for the club and the brand of Liverpool, many youngsters have become fans because of him.

Gerrard is larger than life, he is more than a footballer, his name is synonymous with goals in big games, belters from all angles and all distances, success, greatness, loyalty, light at the end of a dark tunnel (I remember him scoring a late free kick vs Villa away in particular when we couldn't seem to get through) . I can't for the life of me see why some want to chip away at his legacy on here. I personally don't care what Gerrard was like behind the scenes, he did the business on the pitch and that's what matters. This reminds me of a simpsons episode when Lisa found out Jebediah Springfield was actually a murderous pirate and wanted to expose it at all costs, not realizing she was not just undoing a man but also the pride and hope that he represented. I am not calling your liars but Gerrard has done so much for the club, so let's focus on the plenty of good he did rather than the couple of negatives.

". I tried to sign him three times in my career. At Chelsea, Inter and Real. But He wouldn't come. He was too loyal. "

Jose Mourinho

". He might not be at the level of Messi and Ronaldo, But there was a period where he was the best midfielder in the world. "

". He for me is Liverpool. "

". Steven Gerrard is the only player to score in the final of a League Cup, FA Cup, Uefa Cup and Champions league. "

". One of the best I've played with. One of the best I've played against. One of the best there has ever been. Enjoy your retirement mate. "
Wayne Rooney.

2.) 25 Nov 2016 22:22:53
"He is Mr Liverpool" and "Gerrard is larger than life"? This sort of thinking is exactly why we have become a better TEAM since he left.

Why can't people just praise him for being a world class player without bringing out throw away comments and exaggerations? I loved watching him, but I hope to god we never let anyone become so powerful at our club again.

3.) 25 Nov 2016 22:28:28
Coz we are fans MK, emotionally attached fans and not football pundits.

4.) 26 Nov 2016 00:37:39
Emotional attachment should have its limits and put into context which is what we should all strive for. MK is spot on, Harry.

5.) 26 Nov 2016 05:10:45
For those that watched them, Kenny is King and Fowler is God and Stevie was Mr Liverpool, etc, etc. They may be superlatives and exaggerations but it reflects how we feel about our favorite playes and the club.
If there was no emotional investment or players cast as heroes, you may as well be watching a game of draughts.

6.) 26 Nov 2016 06:24:24

Wrong. The moment people keep a limit the club loose its soul.

7.) 26 Nov 2016 07:30:43
While there were negatives to Stevie's time, maybe a thank you to a thrilling player that continued to amaze me and he brought me a lot of joy, is a nice way to send him off for now and the negatives discussed in due course.

8.) 26 Nov 2016 11:49:16
There can't be any question of the impact Stevie G has had on the club and on us as fans. A complete midfielder and an inspiration.
Questioning his potential suitability as a coach or manager shouldn't be seen as a detraction from his stature as a player.

9.) 26 Nov 2016 16:58:03
Well said Lil magician, nice to see credit given instead of venom like of some other shameful posters.

Thanks for the podcast Ed002, it was very informative and got straight to the point, summing up all that is happening at the moment with Liverpool beautifully. I must say though, it scared me half to death to hear the brusk voice of a middle aged man rather than the sharp but soothing voice of a mature American woman I was expecting to hear. My apologies if you are in fact a woman and my ears are off, if so my advice is to drink plenty of water ;) . It was a pleasure to finally meet the infamous WonderDogSparky too.

The Lil Magician

1.) 13 Nov 2016 10:13:13
She will always be a woman in my eyes. Who cares if she's taken a few testosterone jabs to enhance the sexiness of her voice? Who cares if she wears dungarees, has a short back and sides and wears timberland boots for that 21st century masculine look?

2.) 13 Nov 2016 11:15:40
Lil Magician, I think I know whose kind of voice you were expecting - Megyn Kelly from Fox.

Ed002, are you actually American? Because for a guy who grew up in America's North West, you sound incredibly British.

{Ed002's Note - I was born in the northwest and grew up in the San Francisco area - but I left there 35 years ago.}

3.) 13 Nov 2016 13:06:40
So you've lived most of your life outside the US?

I guess it affects people differently. I know someone (an Aussie) who spent only a few years growing up in Greece, and because of that has a weird Greek twist in his Aussie accent. Meanwhile you don't sound American at all, despite completely growing up there.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, I moved, initially, to London in 1981.}

4.) 13 Nov 2016 15:14:03
Thanks ed002. As with others the podcast has shattered my illusions. At least we know you have immaculate hair.

5.) 13 Nov 2016 17:10:16
Yeah. Dissappointed that you have revealed the supsense.
But thanks for the Podcast.

6.) 14 Nov 2016 00:17:10
Yeah it's quite easy to lose an accent after been away for so long, especially 35 years. Lookin forward to the next podcast ed2, was quality!

7.) 14 Nov 2016 08:34:46
American woman, lived in uk and has dodgy British accent.
Who is Madonna?

Adam Lallana is currently bettering his Southampton team of the season form and it is testament to the work he's put in plus his willingness to learn. He's always been a player in a Liverpool shirt up until this season that you felt had the tools to succeed but for some reason couldn't utilise them. He is blessed with wonderful technique, balance, agility and dribbling ability and he can easily weave between 2 or 3 players at a go when on song, not to mention him being two footed which is always a bonus as it makes you very unpredictable. There was a reason pundits were fawning over him and saying he wouldn't look out of place in the Spanish side when he got into the team of the season, he certainly always had the ability. This season has seen Lallana pass the ball more quickly into the front 3, look up to find the right pass instead of running down blind alleys and better utilise his wonderful ability. He is even getting into the box for goalscoring opportunities with regularity now, which if you recall was something he threatened to do last pre-season but couldn't carry it into the season. He has definitely been one of our most important players, he is also key to initiating our press too and is even performing for England. Long may it continue.

Quality post, spot on.

2.) 13 Nov 2016 10:37:06
I wouldn't have been too sad to see him sold this summer, always looked like a player that was never going to reach that Southampton form with us, like you say though he's probably bettered that form this year, amazing really how a player can be turned round completely in such a short space of time, thing is, klopps done it with more than just Lallana, you can add Milner to that list, coutinho and firmino have gone up a level as well.

3.) 13 Nov 2016 11:11:46
Had my doubts but Klopp never did and to be fair to the lad he has been brilliant this season. I don't know why but I feel our more mobile team has helped him and taken the pressure off. When you think we've swapped immobile Benteke for Billy Whizz Mane its made a huge difference.

I think Wijnaldum has helped him too but I know a lot of people can't accept that.

4.) 13 Nov 2016 11:43:16
Good post lil mag!

I personally have not been his biggest fan but i must hold my hands up and say i didn't want him in the team but right now he's one hell of a player for club and country.

Confidence just oozes from him, from our team and as u say long may it continue!

5.) 13 Nov 2016 11:44:06
Wini is brilliant love him. Like I loved Bobby this time next season wini will be indispensable.

6.) 13 Nov 2016 12:17:24
Yeah I really like Wini as well, he's doing well but with more time under his belt he'll be fantastic.

7.) 13 Nov 2016 12:46:14
Klopp playing players in the best position to help the team, simples.

Most managers would have put Lallana or Wini in the top three positions; Klopp is playing them deeper where their workrate helps the difference and their ability to get the ball to the front three and exploit space.

All Klopp needs to do is learn how to beat a well organised parked bus and the season may turn out to be a good one!

8.) 14 Nov 2016 00:22:42
'All Klopp needs to do is learn how to beat a well organised parked bus and the season may turn out to be a good one! '

Couldn't aggree more mate, we have dominated the majority of games we played but the utd one stands out to me, they parked the bus big time, we need to figure out how to get passed that, but all in all, everythings good, we will learn. It's all progress.

{Ed001's Note - we did ok with that against Chelsea, West Brom and Watford....}

9.) 14 Nov 2016 18:05:59
We didn`t have a problem damaging the buses Ed01 mentioned so I think we`ll be fine. The Utd game was down to us not being out our best for the full 90 and that can happen at times. I personally have moved on from the game and I think many people should do the same.

First sentence Ed002, {Ed002's Note - Winger Julian Brandt turned down a contract extension from Wolfsburg with Bayer Leverkusen, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund all showing interest with Chelsea offering a player in part exchange in the summer of 2013.

I assume it should have read {Ed002's Note - Winger Julian Brandt turned down a contract extension from Bayer Leverkusen with, Wolfsburg, Manchester United etc as he plays for Leverkusen. No biggie though as it's obvious what you meant.

The Lil Magician

{Ed002's Note - That was in the summer of 2013 when he played for Wolfsburg, so it is correct.}

Steer well clear, great player but first of all we already have 4 great options as it is to play 1 position, so who would you sell to buy him? Secondly the guy's a proven asshat, stole his teammates' wife from him and threatened to hire some Argentinian mobsters to kill a certain section of fans in his book. I don't want him anywhere near this squad of hard-working, quality team-players Klopp has assembled.

Firmino was a defensive midfielder when he was younger actually Annie, he attributes that to why the defensive side of his game his so strong.

Thanks for the update Reid, hopefully he continues to impress and comes back to challenge for the No.1 spot next season.

The thought of Ed2 making Ed1 her bitch brings about rather distressing clown-related images in my head.

Ed, Henderson brings industry, stamina, work rate, energy, a superb passing range, strong positional sense, good technique (as evidenced by his ability to hit long range screamers and make the long range passes) . As aforementioned has a great shot on him from distance, can put a great ball in when given the opportunity to cross (doesn't get much opportunity in the No.6 role), isn't afraid to put his foot in, is a team player, has a degree of physical strength, which combined with his 6"2 frame, means he doesn't get barged off the ball, he isn't a powerhouse type midfielder a la Yaya Toure but he's strong enough. He is also very composed and a great leader. He however strangely seems to lose all his composure when in front of goal, while he isn't afraid to put his foot in, he isn't the most tenacious or aggressive of players, he can also play within himself at times and not take the risk on, despite having the ability to test the keeper from distance or execute a 50 yard pass perfectly.

{Ed025's Note - you make him sound like the perfect footballer lil, talk about making a silk purse out of a sow,s ear, you make him sound like messi...messy would be a fairer description mate.. :)

As they say, don't fix it if it ain't broken, there's reason the Premier League is the most watched and exciting league in the world, so let's keep it that way.

On the first two he is 100% correct, Hendo is one of those players who people don't realise ther importance they are to the team until they're out injured. No explanation needed for Coutinho, our very own Lil Magician, for No.3 I'd have either Matip, who is the glue holding our defence together - we saw how they collapsed without him, his composure on the ball and calmness he brings to the team is invaluable or Firmino, who is a brilliant player.

Massive no, no, any player who is willing to China in the prime of their career has a very questionable attitude and is very obviously a mercenary. I would rather we avoided mercenaries', Alex Teixeira is also in the past so leave him there. There are far better, younger, hungrier options if we do want another winger.
