TAA out for upto one month and Gini will miss the Palace game both with knee injuries. We really need the sunshine break next week.

I don't get why everyone is saying this is a hard group. We need to stop acting like a small club I think we will win the group as we are better than PSG and Napoli are not at our level. Red Star have no chance. Expect nothing less than 13 points.

We are now one of the best 5 sides in europe and we are still on an upward curve. We should fear no one, let them fear us.


1.) 30 Aug 2018 21:12:57
There’s a balance between inferiority complex and delusion Mark. Top 5 sides in Europe? On our day yes, but not over a sustained period of time, not even close. We’re just creeping back into the big time at the moment and it’s important not to get complacent or arrogant.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 21:21:10
very positive post Mark, its something that will come into play, as we win more games, we got to the Final last season, and I think that we have greatly improved the team / squad, so why not believe that we can go all the way again .

3.) 30 Aug 2018 21:33:45
87 come on man. VVD is one of the very best defenders in the world. Allison is top class. Keita will be as good as any midfielder over this Champions league campaign and everyone tells me we have the best front 3 in the world.

Either we have or we don't. We have a top manager, a young hungry squad. I say 100% top 5 in Europe. I would love this side to play Madrid now. You come back after the group stages and tell me I am wrong and I will hold my hands up. Nothing to do with what day it is.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 21:38:33
Say again Mark😂😂 We are better than what?

5.) 30 Aug 2018 21:54:50
I take our side (barring injuries) over 2 legs to beat any other team in world football.

I take Allison, VVD, Keita and the front 3 to be better than what any other side can offer.

6.) 30 Aug 2018 22:08:38
Love it mark.

7.) 30 Aug 2018 22:28:22
Evening Salah glad you home mate

It is going to be a great season.

8.) 30 Aug 2018 22:32:07
We made the final last year and the squads been improved.

Knockouts anything can happen but sure we'll get through.

9.) 31 Aug 2018 00:48:28
You forgot Robertson!

10.) 31 Aug 2018 06:50:09
We have a very exciting team no doubt and I think we should make it through the groups.

But in my opinion the sort of confidence you’re displaying and a top 5 team in Europe is where we’re heading, not there yet. We’ve been in ECL twice in the last 10 years, one final appearance doesn’t change that. To be top 5 in Europe you need to be making the latter stages consistently. It’s extremely disrespectful towards real, Barca, Bayern, athletico, Juventus etc.

11.) 31 Aug 2018 06:59:31
Thanks mark, much appreciated mate.



26 Aug 2018 09:03:43
We are very lucky to have Mo Salah in our side. Even though he hasn't had his best stuff so far he effects nearly every game we play.

West Ham - first and most important goal.

Palace - won the penalty then got their player sent off.

Brighton - winning goal.

He has been a touch greedy, especially agains't Palace but all the best goal scorers are. I hope we don't have to rely on Salah in too many games. Last season when he had a dip in form we normally ended up dropping points, hopefully this season others will step up when most needed.


1.) 26 Aug 2018 09:45:30
Agree we are lucky to have Salah but disagree we rely on him too much. The system and work rate is what we rely on and it takes every player pulling in that same direction to maintain it. A lot of the games we dropped points in last season were down to mistakes or lapses in concentration in games we were actually on top in. We have a wonderful squad with plenty of match winners.

2.) 26 Aug 2018 12:10:36
I don't think that we would have won yesterday if Allison hadn't been in goal. Money well spent.
Disappointed that Klopp didn't change things earlier (we looked tired) feared the worst though when we had last year's midfield on for the last 30 mins. Think Shakira should have come on to give us a different attacking option. Pleased with the result let's keep going.

3.) 26 Aug 2018 12:32:17
He is putting his mark on games but I don’t think he’s even got going yet, that’s the scary thing for other teams.

4.) 26 Aug 2018 15:13:17
JK we have a good defensive record since VVD signed and we played a settled back 4, but in that time since the turn of the year we have still dropped many points. Most of the points we dropped were down to a lack of goals scored.

Hard work on it's own will win you nothing, match winners as you say often make the difference. We have Salah and Mane who will win us plenty matches but we will be better when the midfield scores a few goals and Firmino gets fit.



10 Aug 2018 10:40:49
Great transfer window, I am feeling really pumped for the season. To take on City of course we need to concede less but I feel we need to score at least 20 goals more. After the turn of the year we conceded 14 goals in 17 games but still dropped far too many points.

In 2013 - 2014 SAS scored 53 league goals no penalties and last season the front 3 scored 58 goals. I think they will and they have to get to 70 goals between them this season. If they are the so called best front 3 in the world they need to prove it. I can't see Origi, Solanke adding much to the number of league goals. In addition the midfield must score more goals especially with no Coutinho and OX. I think Shaqiri and Keita will both get 8-10 goals each. Hopefully Gini will turn up for a few more games and get his share as well. I don't see many goals in the rest of the midfield.

Bring it on, 105 league goals wanted.


1.) 10 Aug 2018 11:24:05
I think the team needs to start beating the so called bus parking teams more this year and stop conceding silly goals leading to lost leads, so better game management.
Goals are not everything, you can technically win the league unbeaten with maximum points by scoring just 38 goals.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 12:25:30
Klopp kept bringing on cbs to make a back 3 and we always looked worse when that happened. Without fail.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 12:47:03
Exactly so either shaqiri storms it and becomes a starter or instead of klavan coming on for the last 20 he does.

Also if studge can contribute 10 and keita 7 or 8, we are laughing.

If Alison can also concede ever 5 less it will bring extra points.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 12:50:27
When was the last time we conceded a silly goal that cost us the lead?
Van Dijk signing virtually put a stopper on that, I can't think of too many occasions after he came that we shot ourselves in the foot.

5.) 10 Aug 2018 13:44:06
I'd like to see more longer range shots from us, thundering into the back of the net this season.
But I'll settle for tap ins too as long we get three points 😉.

6.) 10 Aug 2018 14:18:48
Let’s just remember that most of the 25 (? ) point gap appeared in the first half of the season, without VVD.

In the second half we were not far behind at all, especially if you consider that we took our foot off the gas in the last few games to concentrate on the CL.

Alisson and Keita are definite first 11 improvers, Fabinho - we’ll if he isn’t an improvement on Hendo he is at least and improvement on Can so giving us more strength in depth. Shaqiri, as someone said above, gives us an attacking option rather than a defensive one for the last 20 mins.

If we don’t win the league this season I cannot see there being more than 3-6 points in it.

I still think we’ll win 👍.

7.) 10 Aug 2018 14:46:52
Hopefully we shall be 4-0 up by 55 mins each game anyway.

8.) 10 Aug 2018 15:13:26
Last time was the champions league final dude or have you blacked that out 😂.

9.) 10 Aug 2018 16:37:22
Haha beat me to it Zed!

10.) 10 Aug 2018 18:15:40
Not quite sure we’ll be 4-0 after 55mins.
Sunday is going to be a tough game.

11.) 10 Aug 2018 19:04:27
Spot on, Drogie. Sun will be a very tough game. As for how we can creep up on City this season, all the points made here are valid. HOWEVER, there is one more point that we need to address: Losing points from winning positions. That has been our bane since Klopp arrived. We dropped between 14 to 18 points from winning positions last season. City only dropped 3 I think. We won't be creeping up on City if we keep doing that.

Now, Some of it may be down to us becoming a back 5 when we are winning and then we wilt under pressure cos we are not built to sustain it incessantly. The issue is in midfield where we need to keep the ball better and Klopp has addressed that issue with Fab and Naby. Either way, we MUST improve here.

12.) 10 Aug 2018 19:46:27
Couldn’t agree more Brover.

13.) 10 Aug 2018 22:16:10
I thimk we will go ten games without conceding. I think we will become invincible. Can't wait.

{Ed0333's Note - I think your a crackhead

14.) 11 Aug 2018 05:12:22
Lol, no ed033. I am excited though. I bdt we concede less than 20 goals though.



25 Jul 2018 20:03:26
Keita - this lad is the real deal. He is our best number 10, best 8 and best 6. I saw him play on the right of a front 3 for RBL and he was even quality there.

This is a big call but within 18 months Keita will be the best midfielder in the world. He is going to be absolutely awesome for LFC, our missing link. He will be our most important player this season.


1.) 25 Jul 2018 22:12:39
No pressure then 😉.

2.) 26 Jul 2018 10:25:57
As long as he sorts his attitude out, he will indeed be a very good player.

3.) 26 Jul 2018 10:40:21
We need players who can handle the pressure. He will be better than very good and he will need to be if we are to challenge City.

4.) 26 Jul 2018 10:58:15
I believe very good is the best he’ll reach.

I think it is to his credit he played for 90 minutes. Also he has played well in the last few games so will be a loss to the squad. Just hope Trent or Milner are fit.

I am his biggest fan but I was definitely expecting better by this stage. He can play everywhere in midfield I have seen him excel as the holding midfield, box to box and wide in a front 3. He is lacking confidence and he is playing within himself. Goals, assists, tackles this is his game and we are not getting any.

In Germany there was never a game he didn't but in a debatable challenge he was always in the heart of the action. I can't even remember him putting in a tackle for Liverpool. It's like everyone was worried about his nasty streak and the coaches have gone too far and have him playing with the shakles on. I still hope he plays today and can express himself more.

Redwolf what makes other fans laugh at us is posters saying City have a terrible defence, we are the only team that attacks them (we never laid a glove on them in 2 matches), Allison is 10 times the better keeper, Hendo is a top player. We should just show them respect and be glad that we are ahead of a top side not just spout complete garbage that just isn't true.

Be over the moon that we are 4 points clear but respect City are a better team and we need luck to beat them.

Seano - Allison had a below average game (like most of the team) . He was put under pressure and couldn't handle it, distribution was poor. Yes he made a late save.

He is of course not a weak link, but we still have the same issues as 6 months ago the midfield is well short. The Hendo lovers will be back out in a few weeks when we beat one of the lesser sides but agains't top teams he is simply not good enough.

Tj Allison was poor today, distribution no where near his usual standard.

what's the reason he can't get in the Arsenal squad then?


{Ed001's Note - because Emery is annoyed at him for getting injured playing video games for too many hours in a row. Not sure how that is relevant, Coutinho was struggling before we bought him and now is struggling to get in the Barca team too, but that doesn't mean he is crap.}
