Looks like VVD, TAA and Gomez will all be missing on Wednesday.

We don't have much pace to deal with Vardy. Looks like we will have to defend deeper, no other option.

Just Pray VVD can get off his sick bed.


1.) 29 Jan 2019 01:56:05
guess we will have to go back to the old style of "score one more than the opposition"

2.) 29 Jan 2019 06:29:35
Nooooo. Virgil has to be ok surely, I’ve had a cold and cough last week or so but I’ve still gone to work lol.

3.) 29 Jan 2019 06:37:09
I must admit I'm quite concerned about this game going on that news, fingers crossed we can get the three points but I'm not very confident about this one.

4.) 29 Jan 2019 07:26:39
It’s going to snow in he midlands this week, maybe Vardy and Gray will simultaneously slip and twist an ankle. looks left and right)

5.) 29 Jan 2019 07:42:13
Salah, I share the same worries and thoughts mate. Could well be a struggle especially if Virgil is out. Don’t like the thought of Vardy, Gray and co running at Matip and Camacho. Are well it is what it is I guess and we will find out soon enough we’re we are at.

6.) 29 Jan 2019 07:53:34
We beat Leicester at their place earlier in the season, I have no doubt we'll see the off again tomorrow. May be a bit scrappy but I'm confident 👍.

7.) 29 Jan 2019 07:54:27
Bloody hell lads - what's going on? We have just had 11 days off, and we are playing at Anfield under the lights. Our defence and midfield will be similar to theirs but our front 3 will cause them all sorts of problems.

The team will need the support more than ever on Wednesday, stay positive. It won't all be plain sailing in winning the league.

No more negative posts.

8.) 29 Jan 2019 07:51:19
This is why our manager's use to say no one man is bigger than the club. We all start panicking because VVD is out, we just need to support the other £300M+ worth of talent we put out on the pitch.
Here's a stat to give you hope. Leicester have been beaten in the Premier league 9 times with teams that didn't contain VVD, TAA or any of our regular back line.

11.) 29 Jan 2019 09:09:45
I’m no expert but I’d reckon they are more worried about our attack than we need to be about theirs.
It’ll be very difficult for them to attack at all when we smother them and bag 3 in the first half!

12.) 29 Jan 2019 10:45:56
For goodness sake, we are Liverpool, we are top of the Premier League, we are playing at home, it’s Leicester not Barcelona, they have lost 9 out of 23 Premier League games, we have got 29 points more then them - and they have got Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire in central
defence! Get a grip lads and have some faith in our manager and his squad.

13.) 29 Jan 2019 11:26:20
Have you been hanging around Walter salah? This is the first time I've seen a negative comment from you. ;)

14.) 29 Jan 2019 11:28:18
Van dijk will play unless he's still got the runs until 20 minutes before the game. He's made of stronger stuff and knows how important he is to us. I have no doubt he will play.

{Ed025's Note - gastroenteritis is a bad bug nun, if he plays i hope he does,nt lovren himself.. :)

15.) 29 Jan 2019 11:44:59
Surely you could lend him a couple of your immodiums ed25? 😉.

{Ed025's Note - either that or a pair of my lycra shorts KK.. :)

16.) 29 Jan 2019 12:49:44
If VVD sharted early in the game then that would prompt the Leicester players from getting too close - perfect solution for me.

17.) 29 Jan 2019 12:52:14
I'm confident of a 3-0 victory.

18.) 29 Jan 2019 13:28:08
I’ve seen us beat Leicester loads of times before we signed VVD and before we were anywhere near as good as we are now.
Why is everyone panicking so much?

19.) 29 Jan 2019 15:41:18
Alisson, Milner, Matip, Lovren, Robertson are enough against Leicester City.

20.) 29 Jan 2019 15:59:10
Uh no Milner maybe Camacho.

21.) 29 Jan 2019 17:34:43
Wow, a couple of injuries and this site suddenly turns in an episode of Dad's Army. Don't panic, don't panic!

22.) 29 Jan 2019 17:37:54
and I get told all season to be realistic? hypocrites.

23.) 29 Jan 2019 17:38:36
Klippertys klopp, hahaha about right mate lol.

24.) 29 Jan 2019 20:10:13
This is my worst fear. in the space of a week we will be behind city playing catch up. the league is finally lost even earlier than I expected.
Was good whilst it lasted.

25.) 29 Jan 2019 22:17:24
And suddenly its a chance to go 7 clear :)

01 Mar 2019 15:08:37
Away form agains't the better sides concerns me
Spurs we Won but they had a lot of issues at the time.
Arsenal draw
Chelsea draw
Utd draw
City lost
CL 3 games lost them all (one agains't a really average side) . Everton will play very defensive and it will be difficult to break them down. First goal is massive.

Those poor results show how well we have done at home and in our other away matches. IMO we have to win on Sunday anything else will be points dropped. I hope Klopp doesn't go negative with Fabs, Gini, Hendo it would be a mistake. It means we would be totally reliant on the full backs for creativity, while also needing Robbo and Trent to be solid in the back 4.


1.) 01 Mar 2019 16:13:36
Everton aren't built to play defensively, and it's a derby, they'll need to show something as an attacking force, and we'll pick them off.

2.) 01 Mar 2019 16:18:06
You lost me at ‘away form against the better sides’. Make no mistake, Everton will try come hard at us, and in a competitive derby form can go out the window, but they’re nothing like those teams and quality is not the issue.

The main risk is the first 20-30mins when they’ll be all guns blazing and I think that might well be the exact midfield he goes for to ensure we take the sting out of the game. I personally hope he plays Keita in there though.

3.) 01 Mar 2019 16:21:53
Are Everton one of the better sides?

4.) 01 Mar 2019 16:31:45
they would be next on the list of our hardest away games. They will play defensive 100% and if we have that midfield I am not sure we will beat them. Everton played well an Anfield probably deserved a draw. I hope Keita plays.

Don't be arrogant or dismissive of Everton it might come back and bite you.

5.) 01 Mar 2019 16:38:54
Another excellent post there Mark! Piching all the areas of concern! Most of our loses came when we played pragmatic beauty. I assume that’s now changed and we are going to press them and when you press they make mistakes and that results in turnover of possession.
TAA, Fabinho and Wijnaldum must start else it’s a draw!

6.) 01 Mar 2019 16:40:06
Under estimate any Team in the Premier at your Peril. I won't be. (have had to put that as Mrs 007 reads my post's)

7.) 01 Mar 2019 16:47:25
Agains't has got to be the weirdest use of an apostrophe ever. What does it mean?

8.) 01 Mar 2019 17:17:34
I agree that anything other then a win in a football match means you have dropped points.

9.) 01 Mar 2019 18:05:22
' IMO we have to win on Sunday anything else will be points dropped. '

Is that so? :)

10.) 01 Mar 2019 18:08:15
We need to win. City will win so we need to win. And if they don't win, we need to capitalise and win haha, there's no other option other than to beat Everton.

11.) 01 Mar 2019 18:14:06
Good thing we've played all the top teams away! only losing to one by the way.

12.) 01 Mar 2019 19:46:46
I don't understand the original comment. "Away against the better sides". What does that mean? Everton are not in Spurs' league and never were so there goes that argument. We took points of ALL the top 6 away from home bar City (which was a squeaker and could have gone our way) . Also, we lost some games away from home in the CL and the last time I checked, Everton are not on the same planet as PSG Red Star and Napoli so again, I don't understand the original post.

Now, that does not mean we should under-estimate them cos well, they are a team that can STILL beat or take points off us so they must be respected. After all, you don't go virtually beaten in the PL if you don't respect your opponents along the way. Also, it's a derby so I expect our boys to be up for it hence, there is NOTHING to fear BUT fear itself.

13.) 01 Mar 2019 20:16:02
The "Golden Rule" for any Derby, "Keep ye Cool" as you have a better chance of winning a Derby with Eleven Men on the Pitch rather than Ten?

14.) 01 Mar 2019 20:16:06
Everton are better than Red Star. It will be harder than West Ham and we couldn't beat them. The point to the post is not that Everton are a great side but if we go defensive and not with the right team I can see us dropping vital points.

A point away to City would of been a point won.

15.) 01 Mar 2019 20:20:00
I have no concern with our away form against the better sides.

16.) 01 Mar 2019 20:41:37
We have lost our last 5 away in Europe.

We have only taken 6 points from 5 games agains't our top 6 rivals. I think it needs work to improve it. You wouldn't take that the start of next season.

17.) 01 Mar 2019 20:43:03
markp08, so let me get this straight, a point away at City would have been a point won but points away at United, Arsenal and Chelsea are points dropped and is concerning to you?

18.) 01 Mar 2019 20:53:39
I'm analyzing. If a loss means points dropped, then what does a draw mean? Does it mean a point gained or two points dropped? On the field it means nobody lost or won. But on the table it doesn't have the same consequence. Gaining a point or losing two points is not exactly the same, is it?

Yes. Just thought I would continue with the obvious and the pointless. 😉.

19.) 01 Mar 2019 21:03:37
We are top of the league for a reason.

20.) 01 Mar 2019 21:42:26
Exactly Welsh.

21.) 01 Mar 2019 23:04:18
Aray you’re only pointless if you lose ;)

Away form against the big six doesn’t concern me, we have played all of them away and we are top. Would I like more points, of course. But we can’t change it.

Sunday will be a tough game because they will be up for it and so will their fans. Only our best performance will do. We just need to keep our cool.

22.) 01 Mar 2019 23:37:10
Just to be clear Mark08 does that mean we've also won 6points away from home against our top six rivals 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔.

23.) 01 Mar 2019 23:52:43
Technically, both teams start with a point. If a team wins then they gain points, if they lose, they lose a point. Kind of makes sense when it usually take around 38 points to stay up. Break even and your ok.

24.) 02 Mar 2019 08:39:39
That would work fine if it was 2 points for a win, but it ain’t.

25.) 02 Mar 2019 09:28:11
Not sure our away form has been that bad against the top teams, we unfortunately ran into Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal at their strongest time of the season and battled out good away draws imo. The city loss was fine margins. If you win at home against your rivals and draw away you should win the league.

26.) 02 Mar 2019 10:25:57
We lost once against the top away teams and that concerns you? I would take that every season, we had a blip and drew few games, where others had a blip and lost games, again i would take that every season if it puts are in the position we are in now, nobody gave us a chance to get close to city after how many points we was behind them last year, but here we are top with 10 games to go and only lost once, im very proud of the lads and giving us hope we can win the league this year. what ever happens get behind them show them our support and get us over the line be proud we are liverpool and enjoy the ride be proud of them guys ynwa.

27.) 02 Mar 2019 12:31:57

“Agains't has got to be the weirdest use of an apostrophe ever. What does it mean? ”

😂😂 *nose-laugh, coffee everywhere*🤣.



27 Feb 2019 13:43:37
I would like to offer my support and praise for Matip. He seems to get some awful stick on these pages and I think it is not warranted.

This season he has had 11 starts and 5 coming on as a sub. As a sub he has done some decent things (even though most don't think a defender should come on at the end) . As a starter in 11 matches we have conceded i think 7 goals so well under a goal per game. Also v Palace was 3 goals conceded so in half the matches started he has a clean sheet.

Of the 7 goals conceded how many were his fault 1 maybe 2 at the most. He will play tonight, then play agains't Everton and he is our 4th choice centre back. Where is the YNWA support for Matip?

In addition he has scored a league goal which is more than half our midfield have done and he created our one and only chance v Man Utd.


1.) 27 Feb 2019 15:49:08
He is a decent backup.

2.) 27 Feb 2019 16:22:32
Hi Matips Mum. 👋.

3.) 27 Feb 2019 16:31:08
Matip, Moreno and Mignolet doesn’t come under YNWA 😂😂. They have no fans so they have no support either 😝😝.

4.) 27 Feb 2019 16:57:59
It's not stick, it's analysis of his game (well, from some anyway) . In the United game, I lost count of the amount of unnecessary dribbles into nowhere he made as well as the strange lofted passes over the top to De Gea. I thought he'd turned a corner the last few weeks but his performance was not good. It's hard to get fully behind a player when they're making such simple mistakes and performing so badly.

5.) 27 Feb 2019 18:11:53
Matip is a decent defender and is 4th choice for a reason. He simply does not look like he knows what he is doing, always seems shocked to receive the ball cos he is always on his heels and it seems everyone is doing one thing and he is doing a totally diff. thing. Also, for a guy that tall, he sure misses a tonne of free headers. Like Studge, we have to move him on and get someone else in.

6.) 27 Feb 2019 19:32:01
Matip is a poor defender for the following reasons:

His positional sense is lacking
He doesn’t like to head the ball, he prefers to let it bounce behind him.
I’ve never seen him put in a strong challenge, he seems to defend by trying to put his body in the way.

If that’s stick then yeah.

7.) 28 Feb 2019 06:08:02
16 months ago there were numerous posts on here calling Matip the steal of the season as he was a free transfer and what a great signing he was. Any chance the Ed’s could track those posts down. Would be funny to see if it was the same fans slating him now who were calling him a world beater then. I’m sure some fans opinions turn more on here than the tides do.

{Ed0333's Note - opinions change with performances. I’m sure Lalana and Sturridge were revered on this site once upon a time.



19 Feb 2019 15:35:35
I think tonight we will play to a very high level. It will be like Porto away, Roma and City at home. They are a shadow of their best teams. So I predict a win by at least 3 goals. 4-1 or 5-1.

I have watched them a lot recently and it will be like a knife through butter, they can't run.


1.) 19 Feb 2019 16:25:01
Hi markp08, you don't sit on the fence do ye!

2.) 19 Feb 2019 16:40:07
Yeah, I agree. Remember when we played them pre season, year before last. 3 0 away. We had no Alisson or van dijke or mo salah (I think)

We will win tonight. I think vvd not playing may see a return to just out scoring the opposition. Which could work well for us tonight. Yeah I fancy this one.

3.) 19 Feb 2019 16:47:12
I think 4-1 is optimistic to say the least. I think hopefully we will win 2-0.

4.) 19 Feb 2019 16:57:14
It will be fantastic to see the JOEY ATE THE FROGS LEGS BANNER on the kop tonight, a generation of fans have yet to see it at a game, let’s get behind the team big time, remember the world is watching.

5.) 19 Feb 2019 16:59:09
Hi Robbiesline, Salah scored in the first half of that friendly, Mane the other first half goal, Sturridge scored the third and then injured his hip and was withdrawn before the end of the game.

6.) 19 Feb 2019 17:24:29
I hope we score early. Mane is in fine form lately and I can see him and Salah doing some damage to Bayern. Ideal situation is blitzing them early and converting a couple before half time.
I think I will need settling.

7.) 19 Feb 2019 18:38:47
Scoring early will be key here, as well. If we get the early goal then we can wait them out and pounce on them on the counter.

8.) 19 Feb 2019 22:35:57
For a team that can’t run they absolutely dominated Liverpool tonight 😂 I don’t think Liverpool will resort to the attacking football of last season and will continue this style of play and people need to get used to it! It’s won enough games so no need to change. I personally think Man Utd will get at least a draw on Sunday and Bayern will get through in the second leg.

9.) 19 Feb 2019 23:18:38
Bayern Definately didn't dominate the game. They came for a draw and defended very well. We were just wasteful in front of goal.

On a positive note we played some lovely flowing football at times and managed to keep a clean sheet without Virgil.

I think there will be a few goals from both teams in the second leg.

10.) 19 Feb 2019 23:16:16
Cheers 007.i thought so. Only goal I remember is the DS goal. I remember lallana playing well and couts was on it too.

11.) 20 Feb 2019 03:17:53
Typical Spurs fan Hearno crawling out from under your rock when you get a decent result.
On what planet did Bayern dominate Liverpool? We created chances but didn’t take them. That’s it. Bayern played like I’d expect Brighton or Huddersfield to play at Anfield. No attacking at all and when they tried they couldn’t get through us with a midfielder at CB.
I’d say you’re embarrassing Spurs fans all over the country but most are actually like you. Facebook is full of them after a win but they disappear pretty quickly after a loss. Don’t worry mate you’ll go all spursy before long and undo any good work you’ve done so far just like you always do.
Then you can get back under your rock and wait for the next pundit to mention Spurs and League Title in the same sentence so the cycle can repeat itself.

12.) 20 Feb 2019 10:57:01
Love it Bobby.

13.) 20 Feb 2019 22:29:28
It’s brilliant watching other teams taking results away from Liverpool especially when ye show a complete lack of respect the opposition.
Can’t wait to see Man City collect the Premier League trophy in May and Liverpool are left with nothing again 😂
So I’d suggest to you Bobby and Salah that ye should run along to yere Mammies and go back to the fantasy world ye live in😂.



08 Feb 2019 09:27:38
Hey all, today and tomorrow before the match starts is positive post time.

The players who are coming back for tomorrow's game will make us much stronger. Bournemouth will allow us to play and they themselves have a couple of key injuries. After we get 3 points tomorrow we then have 10 days off to re group and we come back stronger. It was about this time last year we started to play our best football, there is no reason we won't do the same this year.

The league is ours to win, it's in our hands. We will start tomorrow by getting 3 points.


1.) 08 Feb 2019 10:04:19
Spot on mate.

2.) 08 Feb 2019 11:01:59
That's the spirit, Mark. Time to stand up, man up and support this team come hell or high water. We have NO choice.

3.) 08 Feb 2019 17:01:36
we'll have another clean sheet tomorrow and win the league. the time off in spain will help ease pressure and increase morale of the players and then we'll smash BM and win at Man U. How's that for being positive.



15 Jan 2019 12:17:45
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.

When did we drastically improve after Coutinho left? 1st Jan 2018 we were 3rd in the prem at the end of the season we were 4th. We started to concede less goals due to VVD coming but we didn't score more league goals.

Of course we miss him to some extent. Did you not watch the Man U or the Everton games, this is when he could have made the difference.

I agree IB he would be a top addition and would get plenty game time. The front 3 need competition and he would provide that and all 4 could play in some games as well. I would consider sell Shaq as well, Brandt would be an upgrade IMO.

Bloody hell lads - what's going on? We have just had 11 days off, and we are playing at Anfield under the lights. Our defence and midfield will be similar to theirs but our front 3 will cause them all sorts of problems.

The team will need the support more than ever on Wednesday, stay positive. It won't all be plain sailing in winning the league.

No more negative posts.

Thanks a lot Carra much appreciated.

Posters on here commented that Wilson doesn't seem to get involved in the general build up as much as he should. I have watched him quite a few times recently and think it is more that he is making movements and taking up great positions but his team mates aren't at his level. I am excited to see him in pre season with better players.

Was it not a slump for you?

Would you have taken this position before the City game?

People keep repeating the same thing over and over about what was expected at the start of the season. After we spent the most in Europe I am sure most of us expected min CL quarters and challenge for the league. Posters make out we are having a Leicester season. I said at the start of the season we are in the top 5 teams in Europe and we should act like it.

Am with you Live. You can't pick and choose but Porto, Ajax, Spurs would be the preferable.

Maybe one way to stop City in the prem is to draw them in the CL.

Modric is technically brilliant I think he could do a great job if used properly. He has been playing in a team that is all over the place at the moment and he is having to do everything himself.

If we get OX back fit next year and add Modric that would be more than enough in midfield for me.

Ed why did FDJ go for only £60m or so, he looks like he will be a superstar. I have a feeling if we wanted him he would have cost a lot more.


{Ed001's Note - seriously? A superstar? I have not watched him all that regularly but he never looked like a superstar. Looked a decent player but nothing more.}
