With us playing this new style and formation could we not play the front 3 as last season and play Shaqiri in the number 10 role, bobby not looking the same player there and Mo runs from right to centre when bobby drops in the hole and pulls the defenders out is really missing this season.


1.) 03 Dec 2018 14:39:35
I was thinking the same, but there doesn't seem to be the same intensity off the ball with the press etc, which think I understand from this site is intentional so our players don't burn out? Arguably, it feels like city (in particular) still have more quality depth in each position allowing them to rotate more and retain a level of intensity. To qualify that, generally if our front 3 are fit in a competitive game they end to play, where as city interchange between 2 options for each position and you can't easily predict the selection. I would imagine at least Bobby would likely have been rested/ rotated if Klippers trusted Sturridge/ others, although that might change after the mighty Divock threatens to live up to his potential.! Or i'd guess in the summer window if funds allow and a few leave?

2.) 03 Dec 2018 19:29:47
I am a bit bemused by this tactical change as it does seem to have blunted our edge a little. I get the reduced intensity thing but I'm sure we can still achieve that by having our front 3 playing in the same formation as last season. But what do I know, and why am I complaining when we're doing very well at the moment in the league.

3.) 04 Dec 2018 07:09:32
For me Firmino is still the vital cog with the movement he does without the ball being the most important part of our offense.
Even if Salah has really improved he's off-the-ball game, we still cannot afford to drop Firmino in big games.
Mid 3 of Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri is what i expect to happen more and more.

4.) 04 Dec 2018 16:15:58
I for one think Bobby is are best player just pure class, but I think this formation and role is nullifying both him and Salah a bit as well. I do think there is something missing from are midfield 3 and Klopp is trying to get the mix right and with are back 4 and supper goalkeepers who is the best keeper I have seen play for Liverpool since I started watching them in the early 80s when Grobbelaar was number 1 so seen few goalkeepers. So 1-0 seems to be enough to win a game for the first time since Rafa was here so it will be interesting to see us against where we could do with a few goals early on because I know 1-0 will do but no one will won't it to be 1-0 with 10ins to go.
sorry for the rant YNWA.

5.) 04 Dec 2018 16:17:37
We are still winning people 🤷🏼‍♂️.

6.) 07 Dec 2018 20:54:28
Remember why Bobby is playing there? Fekir was our top target and was set to play behind the front 3. He is not only highly skilful, great at set pieces and scores heaps but also great at winning back possession. Once that transfer got stalled JK had to change plans. Throw in Nab and Fab taking longer than anticipated to settle, Ox being injured and the front 3 playing at about 30% of last seasons form and there you have the reasons why we look a bit toothless compared to last season. Of course we'll be looking for someone like Fekir. (or maybe him at a reduced price? ) to play that role that has been ear-marked for the new set up. When that happens and others come into form we will be at the very top alongside the best sides on the planet.



24 Apr 2018 08:29:31
hi eds any news on Emre Can's injury. or do you think he has kicked his last ball for the club, as he has made his mind up to join a local rival.
P. S not Everton lol.


{Ed001's Note - he is highly unlikely to play again this season.}

1.) 24 Apr 2018 10:10:38
Is it down to injury or what grino said about a rival. thanks.

{Ed001's Note - is this is a serious question? He is injured, what on earth would the other have to do with anything?}

2.) 24 Apr 2018 12:04:43
regardless of where he will be next season, he will be gutted to not be a part of this push for top 4 and champions league!

he is not feigning injury he has back problems! i hope he gets better soon!

3.) 24 Apr 2018 17:36:34
We move on to the players that want to play for the shirt!

4.) 24 Apr 2018 21:50:22
Guys he hasn't got the back injury (Coutinhoitis) so I presume he's not faking it.



03 Jan 2018 10:40:45
Do you think the club want Philippe Coutinho gone this January transfer window? All this can't be good for squad moral. For me the Summer would have made sense for all 3 parties, but Coutinho just wants out now. If he does stay and does not play all January then that won't help the club, as when he comes back, he's not going to be match fit again. Just got to get rid now.


1.) 03 Jan 2018 11:00:34
I want to keep him but if we sell him i hope we get keita now.

2.) 03 Jan 2018 11:17:53
We took a risk in the summer and in fairness it paid off as his attacking stats this season have been his best yet and unbelievably his defensive stats have been very similar to last season. However if we keep him this window I'm not sure if it will pay off again and could very easily come back to haunt us. It's a massive decision and I'm glad it's not me making it.

3.) 03 Jan 2018 11:52:48
I think whatever happens the club will want everything done out of the spotlight, last summer was ridiculous, if I was running the club I would be making it very clear to Coutinho that anymore antics by himself or his “concerned” family will only complicate matters and reduce the chance of a transfer, also make it perfectly clear to Barcelona what the price is and once it’s met they can have him and make it clear as well that we won’t accept any of this to be played out in public by them or anyone connected to them.

4.) 03 Jan 2018 12:07:51
Clubs am sure would want keeps but Couts wants gones. this Januari.

5.) 03 Jan 2018 12:47:17
I'll take whatever RBL is on.

6.) 03 Jan 2018 16:45:25
Eds what is the chance of getting keita this January.

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine.}



18 Jul 2017 07:28:53
hi eds any truth in the Maxi Romero link.


{Ed025's Note - liverpool have been looking at him grino but as yet have not made an offer mate..

1.) 18 Jul 2017 11:16:48
Yes, but have we agreed terms with him yet? The offer can follow at some point 😉.

2.) 18 Jul 2017 11:51:50
I think we'll face a serious WP issue.

3.) 18 Jul 2017 11:55:19
Now I'm reading he had a CL injury. to get this kind of injury at 16 years of age. poor lad.

4.) 18 Jul 2017 17:37:15
Mammana and Romero - that's two players I signed in FM that were linked with us over the summer.

Which journo's raided my save? Expect links to Ben Davies, Lincoln, Konrad Laimer and Andre Schurrle soon.

5.) 18 Jul 2017 19:36:38
Lol -Something Red-

I guess since I haven't played FM for a few years they have moved onto new people xD

I signed Coutinho on FIFA13 and FM because he was called Phil and had crazy hair like me when I get out of bed. My dad always said laughing, "It’s you" every time we came across him in UT so we had to get him.

Then half a year later we signed him an wow what a signing!
Guess I need to find us some gems again haha

Anyway back on track, if we are going to buy a striker we only need a proper ready made 20+goals striker. We have enough young prospects all trying to break through and Solanke has already pushed some down.



30 Sep 2016 20:54:07
hi eds anything in the new link to Inaki Williams or just old recycled news?


{Ed001's Note - well we have continued to have him tracked, but I don't know of anything new in the pipework just now. I would not expect him to go anywhere until next summer, at the earliest. Bilbao have no reason to sell, so it would require the player wanting a move. They don't need the money, as they can't spend it on players.}

1.) 01 Oct 2016 08:19:57
Looks are real talent would mean someone would have to leave for us to sign him.

2.) 04 Oct 2016 19:16:18
Worth noting that Williams is born and bred in Bilbao, a proud Basque player, and even if we were to offer an acceptable fee (which would likely have to match the release clause of 50mil Euros) there is a strong possibility he'd simply not be interested. Very good player though, would suit the Premier League (and us) well.

this has been coming for a few weeks now, might be the kick up the backside everybody needs. Our build up play is so slow this season with too many backwards passes and the ball being played around the back too much. need to get on the front foot more and speed the play up.


1.) 07 Nov 2018 08:41:21
I think it's starting too tell our squad is good but not world class like city or Chelsea squads, starting 11 great but too much over reliance on original players who have done great for us, but we needed too strengthen areas we weak in and that was midfield, we have grafters in midfield but no craft and brains city have debrunye, David Silva, bernardo Silva, chelsea have fabregas, jorgihno, willian . Also easy too say but we could do with a proper striker as well as firmino again other teams are stronger in this area than us especially city and Chelsea.

{Ed001's Note - Fabregas and Willian? I really hope that was a joke! If not then I have no idea what you have seen in them to suggest this. Fabregas has been finished for years and Willian is playing like a lower league clogger right now.}

2.) 07 Nov 2018 10:39:49
Devil advocate here, but you could make the argument Klops first choice midfield for this season was meant to be Fabinio, Keita and Henderson, injuries, time settling and Millie's early form have screwed that up but still in touch and plenty of time to get them playing.



25 Oct 2018 16:41:06
I was at the match last night so did not see Mo's reaction to scoring. Seen a few things online about him not celebrating. Is there anything in this at all. Is Mo still happy at the club?


1.) 25 Oct 2018 17:50:24
Look at the post under yours.

2.) 25 Oct 2018 19:18:10
Mo has not celebrated that much after his goals this season anyway. May be due to the issues he is having on the field (not really/ fully healthy yet hence, off form) and off the pitch (issues with his country's FA) . Remmember, people think that he or other players are not affected by the OTT bile being spouted about them, then people should think again. The guy is a beast of a player and even a better man. Nothing was easy for him in his life so he can handle it. He's a big boy.

3.) 25 Oct 2018 20:08:59
Looks unhappy at the minute doesn't he. His forms on the way up anyway and I expect that'll cheer him up.

4.) 25 Oct 2018 21:58:01
What's he to be happy about. A penalty and a spoofed shot.

The man sets himself standards. You ever done something right but not well.

I'm talking about him not my feelings toward him. 2 goals, good game, keep it up.

But for him. He will want another 40. Another crack at the champions leagy final, a premier league trophy. Hattricks and the levels he reached last year.

I would rather he had a sulk on after 2, shows he isn't settled and happy with that! Perfect attitude!

5.) 25 Oct 2018 23:07:02
maybe it's just because he's humble.

6.) 25 Oct 2018 23:40:19
I saw a steely eyed determination that gave me goose bumps. The guy is a force of nature who has set himself high standards.

People saying he is way off form but is well on the way to a 20+ season.

I don't think players are going to be wanting to leave any more. We are at the next level now. I can understand people wanting to leave when we are finishing 7th, 5th but that is over. Players will be hoping to stay.

7.) 26 Oct 2018 07:04:56
Could it just be that Mo was just being cautious not to make himself a target by Red Stars supporters who alledgedelly weren't at Anfield for the game so how sporting of us Liverpool fans to raise a few dittys on behalf of the Red Star supporters who sadly couldn't make it the other night, maybe they might give the travelling Liverpool supporters a hearty welcome to Belgrade for being such a sporting bunch of chaps.

8.) 26 Oct 2018 20:33:17
Scoring goals is what Mo does so why celebrate every goal with your hair on fire every time? Like someone said. "Act like you've been there before".

{Ed0333's Note - To be fair Salah’s hair does look like someone’s torched it so he probably doesn’t need to celebrate every goal with ‘his hair on fire everytime’. Let me offer my two cents opinion on Mo Salah and this downbeat demeanour, Andrea Bocelli can see he’s not the all conquering colossus of last season, I think this is due to the Egyptian FA still screwing with him as the issues still haven’t been cleared up there 100%. Furthermore he’s not hitting the heady heights of last season and it’s bothering him. What he’s producing now is elementarary and he knows he can play tonnes better so why celebrate mediocrity? I’m sure the smile will return and he starts brutalizing defenders again and I hope it’s tomorrow against Cardiff because I’m going. So let’s just give the wee man some slack be patient becausethe ‘eye of the tiger’ will be back real soon I’m sure of it.

A coach to Kiev? Bloody long that, good luck to anyone on that and hope and prey the air con or toilet doesn’t pack in.

hi eds and reds, can any one explain the Priority Rights Holders to me for the champions league semi. how come they get tickets before season ticket holders and members that have been to every round. cheers.


1.) 17 Apr 2018 21:26:08
There was an article about this in the Echo before the City game. Priority Rights Holders are a legacy of the Gillett and Hicks takeover in 2007. These 1500 people have priority over tickets, regardless of how many games they have attended. The club looked into it and apparently it is legally binding, there is nothing the club can do about it.

2.) 17 Apr 2018 21:26:31
I think it’s previous attendances mate.

3.) 17 Apr 2018 21:26:54
attendances even!

4.) 17 Apr 2018 21:38:55
Weren’t the priority rights holders shareholders in the club and the priority rights were part of the deal of the sale to Waldorf and Statler?

5.) 17 Apr 2018 21:51:52
Sorry, Zeddicus and smeg are correct.



12 Jan 2018 00:03:37
Is Thomas lemar a target for the summer and if he is, if Arsenal make a bid, will that force us into making the move in this window?

gutted for Gomez to think he is going to be great player for us. but not the worst player to lose VVD and lovren is not a bad pairing. I think we can lose the odd player but would not like to lose Alisson or VVD.

Regarding Brewster, how is he going at the moment after his injury is he getting close to a return yet, if so do you see him being in the first team this season or after the injury do you see him getting more of a chance in preseason next year.

is it about his load move last season, and is this not similar to the John Terry thing for his last game where he let it know he would be going off in the 23 minute?

I started watching when Bruce was in goal, was watching Ray in goal but to young to know what was good and not. But Alison is the best I have seen his Positioning is out of this world seems to know where the ball is going before they even shot.

I agree Drogie Gini does look like he has all ability but just goes missing far to often as for Ox did not know why we signed him but he just got better and better and the drive he gave us through the middle of the park is so badly missing so I really hope he gets back to his best to partner Keita would give us real drive in there.

Aj destroys all of them, as for Usyk looks a great fighter but Bellow was winning the fight and if he was in the same ring as Aj would not last a round as he said he self he is just to big. Bellow was very clever by picking a fight with Haye that made him the star he became because he could see he was past his best. when Evander Holyfield moved up there was not such a gap but the new breed of heavyweight are pure monsters close a 4 stone gap is like moving Flyweight to Super middleweight in one go.

give the lad a chance had nearly a full year out. was that not his second start in the last 12 months. if that's the case let's get rid of ox to because he won't be up to full speed when he gets back, great support that.
