Everyone has been rightly raving about the new stand but have to say - how good does the new grass look. Miles better than the old stuff which was more threadbare than my bank account.

That's like going to see the pyramids and saying how nice the sand was. Haha.

Not really LFC related but I notice Jon Smith (self proclaimed super agent) is bringing out a book. "The Deal: Inside the World of a Super-Agent"

Anyone know if its worth a read? Particularly in terms of exposing what goes on behind the scenes during transfer season?

Dunno. Will let you know when it's out .

We have taken 7 out of 9 points from teams that finished in the top4 last year. Yes we dropped points against Burnley but this year is certainly shaping up to be exhilarating.

Correction; 7 out of 9 against the top 3 teams with two of the games away from home. Not trying to be pedantic but I just shows how extra impressive our start has been.


2.) 12 Sep 2016 14:04:40
That is quite impressive indeed. however where we really need to push on will be against the "lesser" teams, which has been our archilles heel for years. This is what we need to put right. if we can, top four (or better? ) for sure, awaits us.

Hers an interesting stat which might go someway to explaining why England fail to achieve results at an international level.

According to Uefa, Germany has 28,400 (England 1,759) coaches with the B licence, 5,500 (895) with the A licence and 1,070 (115) with the Pro licence, the highest qualification. They also have a talent identification programme which covers most of Germany aimed at 8-14yo who are trained by qualified coaches (who are also expected to do scouting) . The kids attend weekly training sessions with the programme but play for their local clubs on the weekend. In other words Germany have set out to try and make sure they capture every player in Germany and make sure they get as good a coaching as possible.
Whereas I understand in England this is the responsibility of each individual club.

What about Iceland? How many coaches have they got 😄.


2.) 28 Jun 2016 07:34:00
France in the past, Spain and now Belgium and Germany have figured out the way forward is to revamp their whole youth systm from the grassroots up. EWe have seen the results. England is still there groping in the dark and still think the PL is the best thing since sliced bread while they are being left in the dust by these other countries and well, even Iceland. No oe should be surprised with with how pathetic England as a fot ball nation, not power, has become.

{Ed001's Note - it is up to the English FA to work in partnership with the clubs, instead of constantly battling against them, to create the best youth system possible to give the country hope of success.}


3.) 28 Jun 2016 09:02:36
Ed001 I agree. In Germany, the clubs and the League are on the whole primarily fixed on producing the best homegrown players they can for the good of the national team. The League's attitude is that if they can find and produce good players for the clubs, the clubs will in turn mould them into players good enough to play for Germany. can't say that England have that sort of long term focus.

Burnley have agreed to swap their home match with us so that we have more time to get the stadium ready. Means they are without a home match for almost 2 months in the middle of the season. Class act by them.

1.) 23 Jun 2016 05:17:03
That is brilliant of them to be so accommodating.


2.) 23 Jun 2016 07:35:08
Especially after the ings situation.

{Ed001's Note - good point.}


3.) 23 Jun 2016 08:21:36
It is nice to think it was a gesture, but I suspect a favour or a few pounds will be returned.
Hey, they can have Balotelli for free.

{Ed001's Note - I very much doubt there will be any money exchanged, they are just not run as badly as us and are willing to work with the other teams in the league.}


4.) 23 Jun 2016 08:32:53
I'm sure the club will find a way to stuff this up somehow.


5.) 23 Jun 2016 08:47:14
Yeah well done Burnley 👌

Feels like 1987/ 88 all over again 😃.


6.) 23 Jun 2016 09:10:52
Scousekev, why punish them when they are helping us out?

From what i have seen of their matches on LFC, I like Pedro. He does his job without fuss, has a good pass on him, works hard and is not pushed around anywhere near as much as he used to be. He has the makings of a very good player in my opinion. Heres hoping the loan turns out to be a success.

Revenue (how much a club makes) is part of it. So for example say ManU had debt twice ours but their revenue is 3 times ours (these numbers are plucked out of my head), then not only can they more easily afford to pay the interest but banks will be more willing to loan them more money.

De Gea made an almost identical mistake last week, and yet he hasn't suddenly become crap. Players are human and will make mistakes. Its just its more obvious when a GK makes one. The issue is how does he respond. Migs' biggest mistake is that he dwells on the errors and it appears to affect his judgement as a result. Karius needs to show he will learn from his mistakes but shrug them off too. Give him time and see how he goes. It took De Gea almost 2 years to show people what he has got (ManU fans were spewing about him for most of that time) and yet I reckon most here would jump at the chance to sign him.

Umm Goetze didn't leave on a free. However Gotze didn't want to extend his contract so Dortmund were forced to sell him but not before squeezing a record price out of Bayern.

I don't have access to Bundsliga games so sorry Ed002 for asking this. Just wondering if you have any idea why his form has dropped?

Im hanging out for us to win the league but if we can only do it by playing boring crap footy then no thanks. Much as I would love us to finally win, if it means that my kids get turned off and stop watching then I think its not worth it. Im loving the style of footy we are playing now. Its why I started supporting LFC and I would hate to see them turn their backs on it. Just ask yourself this: how many Chelsea and ManU fans actually bothered to watch matches when their teams were playing "winning" footy.
In the wider view, Football is competing with a whole host of other "entertainment" - they can't afford to be complacent.

To be fair to Migs, it does seem like he has worked hard on some of his weaknesses. For example, he is doing a much better job of knowing when to come out for through balls whereas previously he would panic. His communication also sounds like it has improved. Also his distribution is calmer (still not brilliant mind you) . I think we should give credit where its due. Im not saying he has suddenly become undroppable but he does seem to have improved.

He is right though. Decisions might have gone his way in last few matches but they weren't at beginning of the season. And despite what I think of him, Mourinho has got them playing a much better style of footy than the turgid rubbish they were forcing their fans to watch last year. So Im not surprised the ManU fans are feeling better about their team now. Let them. We should be concentrating on our team. And we've got 2 game to go before we have to worry about ManU.

Hendos problem is that most of his best work is not going to make MOTD footage and so its hard to see why he is so valuable. But he is technically solid (how many times does he get caught with the ball in possession), a very good passer (invariably hits his man), high work rate, good vision and positional sense. Im not surprised he is captain of a Klopp team and many parents could do worse than use him as a football role model for their kids. I do wish he would learn to pass with his left foot but that is just quibbling and for me he is an essential part of our team.
