In fairness Ed0333, I don't think it's hubaris - we've proven that we are capable of beating anyone, despite having also proven that we are there for a thumping if we get it wrong against you. But everyone recognises that no match is going to be easy at this point and no matter what, we will have our work cut out for us if we want to progress. That being said, some teams left are the ruling super-powers of Europe and some teams left are very good, well organised squads. Despite both groups being hard games, they are not equal to each other. One thing we need to get out the mindset of though is hoping that we will have the element of surprise. We won our group scoring a record number of goals, and are now in the quarter finals. No-one will be taken by surprise anymore.

hjikle

{Ed0333's Note - I hear what your saying fella but I’m a naturally cautious guy and have low excepectations and anything else is a pleasant surprise. You make really good points though mate. Let’s hope the fairytale lasts a little bit longer. I would love Klopps first European title to be with us. As I said too Ed’s 001 earlier the ‘doubters to believers’ quote will go down in Anfield folklore if he does.


1.) 15 Mar 2018 04:18:49
I think you’re right to be pragmatic ed - this is the most exciting I’ve seen us play for many years barring 13/ 14 perhaps but we shouldn’t get carried away though as were only 75% through the rebuild as I see it.

That last element of unpredictable results against the top sides is in large part down to midfield for me. I can see why it’s happened this way, but our best midfield for a balance of defence/ control/ pressing and goal threat is for me still Hendo, Gini and Lallana, yet against Man Utd we had Can, Milner and Ox.

Starting from front to back and analyzing the work still to be done

- we have one of the most exciting front threes in a long time but still no impact player off the bench. Can Ings be that player? Jury still out for me.
- our Midfield is OK but for all his recent decent performances Ox is hardly the finished article, I don’t see Milner competing with the best midfielders in Europe (he’s brilliant in some games but can go walkabout and scores very rarely) . Hendo is fantastic but unfortunately injury prone. Gini is still for me the one we should be playing in the big games but hasn’t exactly been blowing the doors off either and Lallana has lost form while Can is still young and inconsistent. We are perhaps in the top 10-15 in terms of midfield but not in the top 5
- Likewise at the back, I think VVD was massive for us and Karius and Lovren looking immeasurably better for him coming in, but we aren’t water tight just yet. We also have a solid LB that’s still adapting, and a very young (even if very talented) RB

Overall in terms of changes next season I think Keita could be revolutionary for us, adding drive, bite and goals from midfield which we sorely lack. I hope we see Robbo, Karius, Lovren, TAA continue their rapid improvement in form and maturity, and hopefully Hendo can stay fit. If we can add an impact player off the bench as well, with goals from midfield or out wide (Lemar? ) then we’ll be 90% of the way there.

{Ed0333's Note - I agree about the sexiness of our play and carving out chances for fun. We were incredibly hard to beat under Rafa, he was my hero but it was turgid football for the most part. Klopps way is so easy on the eye and I totally agree that an upgraded midfield will yield even more success and hopefully the elusive Premiership. The midfield is mediocre at best and Keita will drastically improve it and change the dynamic but to be fair long John silver would improve the dynamic. The attack is exemplarary and the defense can hold its own if they play their best but the midfield lets us down. Like yourself I see the potential in this team.


2.) 15 Mar 2018 07:33:36
I am like u ed think the worst an anything else a bonus sad but necessary after years of let downs an pain, it's obvious this year we seem better against the smaller teams an not as well against top 6, hope this doesn't effect us.

{Ed0333's Note - hopefully next season we’ll get it right. We’ll beat the good teams and the crappy ones.

Any news of Flanagan getting a new contract? Is it even being discussed?

hjikle

1.) 11 Feb 2015 22:31:14
Hope he gets one, he worked hard last year and showed he had the quality to be in the first team. That goal against Spurs is still a highlight from last season for me.


2.) 12 Feb 2015 10:25:51
One wonder goal and he get's a new contract ? Rather cash in on him and bring another youngster through.


3.) 12 Feb 2015 10:32:07
I think it would be wise to see how he does when he returns from injury.

A full season out is a long time especially at his age.


4.) 12 Feb 2015 13:34:34
Actually It wasn't simply one wonder goal, he played brilliantly when he came in, made Johnson look more of a mug than he actually is, showed that he has what it takes at the top level as he was consistant, solid and worked hard, the goal against spurs was the icing on the cake, as was his reaction.


5.) 12 Feb 2015 17:29:04
Agree Mr D


6.) 13 Feb 2015 07:45:01
He was our only defender last year that actually looked like he had any intention of defending and made opposition players think twice about running at him. He was the best positioned, most disciplined, most energetic and most effective defensive player we had last year. And that was playing on the wrong side.


7.) 13 Feb 2015 20:29:52
If carra was still about he would have learned so much. I remember one of his first games seeing carra talking him through the game, where to be and where to keep the attackers. Shame.


8.) 13 Feb 2015 22:20:00
He played brilliantly last season, but still think it would be wise to see how he recovers after being out for a season.


9.) 14 Feb 2015 12:48:58
I have mentioned this in the past, no the likelyhood is he won't be offered a new contract, he will be given a chance to prove himself in the next couple of months before the decision is made, read my last comment to find out why. Also BR thinks wisdom is a better option as he can fit into the three at the back aswel as a full back


10.) 14 Feb 2015 22:58:50
I think his time is up. Another Martin Kelly Saga.

Prediction for the final - if we win, it'll be Mane who does the damage. They have the knowledge to not underestimate Firmino and Salah is obviously the major threat that they will focus on. Mane gets forgotten until it's too late for them.

hjikle

1.) 23 May 2018 10:15:41
How do you possibly defend against us in a match you have to win? You can’t park the bus, Madrid can’t and won’t do it.
If they have done their homework they will know Mane has been on great form and they will have to focus on him, but that leaves arguably the best player on the planet against the most overrated full back in the world, focus on both? Yeah ok but that leaves firmino space and that’s dangerous, give him space and he will pick out Mane and Salah regardless of how closely your marking them.
They are going to have to go all out attack and hope they get lucky, that then plays right in our hands, but I dunno how else your supposed to play against us if you want/ need a win.


2.) 23 May 2018 10:27:42
They could do a “Red star Belgrade” on us mikey and play for penalties.
Other than that, they’re toast 😎.


3.) 23 May 2018 11:03:36
I guess it comes down to whoever wants to win on the day 🤔.


4.) 23 May 2018 10:47:58
I think the lads having a week before the game for a few days rest and then training at getting at them will do us the world of good, look how electric we was in the last game of the season again after a week, looked fully rejuvenated and was at another level. We come hit them flying out the box Saturday night, they won’t know what’s hit them.


5.) 23 May 2018 11:18:10
Oh God I unfortunately remember that final Ron.


6.) 23 May 2018 11:22:52
My only worry is our mentality, we don’t seem to have the bottle in finals, the desire to win when it matters most, in awe of the occasion maybe? If our players heads turn up as well as their body’s I feel we will win.


7.) 23 May 2018 13:04:17
Either that Mikey or the last two finals we played in, one team was significantly better and still only won on penalties and one team were the undisputed masters of the competition and after being let in by one player (who then lost his head), knew exactly how to take advantage. Nothing to do with bottle, we were the underdogs and underdogs don't always win.

Anyone seen the Miguel Delaney (The Independent) tweeting this morning? Someone has been reading this site!

hjikle

1.) 21 May 2018 15:32:16
Just saw that mate how very original of him.


2.) 21 May 2018 15:48:53
Or he got the same information from the same source.


3.) 21 May 2018 16:18:00
He doesn’t have maccas source Smeg. It’s been proven “reliable “ journalists take this site as “their” info.


4.) 21 May 2018 17:52:23
Benny, first you don’t know Macca’s source, so how can you possibly know Miguel Delaney doesn’t have the same source?
Second where has this been proven? Show me and I will believe you.


5.) 21 May 2018 18:34:32
I know exactly who maccas source is actually, however, it will go to the grave with me I’m afraid.


6.) 21 May 2018 18:36:04
Oh and as for it’s been proven. The Ed’s have put out nonsense stories to see who takes their info, within 24 hours “sky sources” were reporting on the made up story.

You really shouldn’t assume things about people Smeg.


7.) 21 May 2018 18:52:03
So it’s beyond the realms of possibility that Delaney could know the same person? You really shouldn’t assume things about people Benny. I guess your definition of ‘reliable’ journalists and mine differ greatly, I would never call Sky Sports reliable.


8.) 21 May 2018 19:24:28
I guess you don’t understand how sarcastic quotes work lol. Dr evils laser beam must of been over your head 🙈.


9.) 21 May 2018 20:19:14
Hahaha love it Benny. Glad to see your posts today, we don't see them enough though these days mate :) .


10.) 21 May 2018 20:44:29
Been a busy bee Salah. Will try to post a bit more but I just end up in arguments and I’m trying to change my ways 🤣.

{Ed025's Note - leopards and spots and all that benny.. :)


11.) 21 May 2018 22:06:37
If a blue can turn to red over the course of a season like you have ed, then anything is possible.

{Ed025's Note - now now benny...that is a malicious rumour!.. :)


 

 

14 May 2018 10:27:16
So interesting fact about our defense - since the big loss to Spurs, it's been the best defense in the PL. Not Chelsea, not City, not United - us. It's been so good in fact that we finished the season with the 4th best defense and the third highest number of clean sheets. The turnaround since that day has been outstanding and if we can maintain that solidity, we can really hit the league as a priority next season and reasonably expect some joy.

hjikle

1.) 14 May 2018 13:45:26
I was wondering who has the most clean sheets since Karius took over full time.

Harry Wilson has capped off his impressive loan spell at Hull by being named PFA Championship Player of the Month. Good work lad.

Which probablybmeans we can sell him off to Bournemouth or Palace for 20mil!

Does anyone else find time really dragging at the moment? I mean I know I'm distracting myself from other problems but since Saturday evening I've just been sitting here thinking 'okay, now its 160 hours till the next game. '. Just me?

1.) 18 Apr 2018 09:52:01
Nah not just you mate, same here, this week is taking the piss.


2.) 18 Apr 2018 10:26:20
Phew. 74 hours left btw.


3.) 18 Apr 2018 10:52:23
I'm already anxious for the Champions league final.


4.) 18 Apr 2018 13:39:06
We've had midweek games the past couple of weeks do now that we have a full week between games it feels like an eternity.

Would love it if he took that chance, he's done so well for two years on loan now.

He said he's staying. Liverpool have said he's staying. Real haven't shown interest (and let's face it, if they were going to they'd do it now, to disrupt him in the final) . If that's not 'sorted' for you, it'll never be sorted.

No one said it was outrageous that he wasnt picked. It was that he wasnt picked and that a keeper (in fact two keepers but Neuer is more understandable who has basically not played this season was picked while he wasnt.

I'm surprised either was chosen, but if I was choosing one then it would certainly be Karius over Trapp.

Most things worth doing are difficult. That's why doing them makes you stand out - because if they were easy, everyone would do them.

Last word was he was stable but in a coma and the family wanted privacy. I like to kid myself that the media have respected this wish rather than just gotten bored.

It's big. United are the biggest at 47m per year. This would join us with Chelsea at 40.

In terms of a good brand to associate with? Well it's not as nice a thing to be a partner to as AIA or Palm (Spurs and West Brom) . Even in terms of financial corps, we're not doing as well as the likes of Brighton (Amex) and Watford (FXPro) . However, it's also not a cancerous explotative organisation like the 10 teams that have betting companies on their shirt (every one of which lobbied against lowering the maximum stake on fixed odd betting machines btw) . So the wrong side of the 'moralvsimmoral sponsor', but not as bad as they could easily be certainly.

Frankly, I'm more worried about some of our other sponsors - BetVictor for the training kit (also lobbied against lower stakes), Tatweer Misr who have been found culpable in extensive and unnecessary environmental damage in their developments, LiverpoolVodka (do we really need 2 alcohol sponsors? ) and Malaysia Airlines who have been shown multiple times as not fully protecting their passengers or complying with normal air traffic procedure (and that's not including their two downed aircraft) . SC aren't good, but if we are going to clean up our 'official partners' I think there are probably higher priority places to start.

A young player made a couple of minor errors (which he since clearly learned from) and was badly punished, and a giant of a player physically bullied Lovren until VVD stepped in. Then a team run by the bus parking champion 10 years in a row parked the bus. No miracles, no narrative, we were much better most of the game but they took their chances adn then shut up shop.
