Does anyone have any info/theory re the reference to a mystery person having been bought a house for in formby on the BBC gossip page?

Now that in certain competitions accumulated yellow cards can result in a game ban I think they should be reviewed and possibly rescinded.

I'm not talking about Robbo's here I'm talking about Fabinho's, where he clearly got the ball.

I guess the counter argument to this is that there are probably yellows that should have been issued but are missed by refs. They say they won't re-ref a game. But c'mon, there's so much money in the game - spend it on correct decisions.

ps- gah, Robbo is suspended. NoOo.

stoneage

1.) 14 Mar 2019 06:07:27
He did get some of the ball stoneage, but he went through the man first. I'm guessing the yellow was an accumulation of fouls.


2.) 14 Mar 2019 06:57:37
He went through Rodriguez from behind mate. Stone wall yellow. He got the man first unfortunately. It was a good tactical foul because Bayern had an overload and it was 1-1 40 minutes in. They score then and it's a different game.


3.) 14 Mar 2019 09:52:35
Totally agree with Adam. That was as clear a yellow card as you could see.


4.) 14 Mar 2019 09:56:54
Is their any holding mid that you guys would swap for fab in the prem? Not for me. Kante and fernandinio are class but I think fab is stronger and better defensively. I think he will be considered the best holding mid in the world in 5 years time.

#11morewins.

stoneage

#A lot of tantrums?
Injuries galore yesterday, City lost Laporte and Fernandinho too apparently.
11 wins would be nice but can’t see it myself.
Take it game by game. I’m feeling better about yesterday now.
We’ve only been beaten once all season, absolutely fantastic effort so far.
Cmon you Redmen!


2.) 25 Feb 2019 09:15:34
Hi Juicer - 1 defeat all season is fantastic, but 3 draws in our last 4 PL games is the equivalent of losing 2 games (6 points dropped) . We have to improve or we could end the season with only 1 loss and finish 3rd.

The pressure is obvious in the players, and it is really showing.

After Leicester and West Ham we all got over excited at beating the mighty Bournemouth at home.


 

 

12 Feb 2019 02:02:57
Competition is so tight right now, I have a horrible feeling that we will come second in the league this season on goal difference. Wouldn't that be the absolute worst case scenario? Can you imagine?

We are so close. We're so strong. If we don't win it this year, I'm confident that if we strengthen again over the summer, we will definitely have a great shot next season. The important thing will be to keep hold of Klopp. I'd love to see him build a dynasty and that's the kind of thing that's worth waiting for.

stoneage

1.) 12 Feb 2019 05:23:14
That dynasty won't be built if we keep loosing titles and cups on goal differences and silly performances.
By now, Klopp could have won a league cup, an europa league, a champions league and now he is in pole position for winning the a league. You cannot keep coming 2nd. This is the season to win it. Otherwise the media will definitely label us chokers and while i don't give jack about what the pundits have to say, it is an unnecessary badge to carry.
Also, We definitely have the team to win it this season. We need to support and make voice ourselves that we are desperate to win it. we have the most balanced first team any day in EPL.
I don't want to tag along with the sentiment if - not this year than next. Yes ofcourse we will continue to support till eternity and i don't care when we win it, but truthfully, it be bloody good if we win it this year and then build a dynasty based on this title win. I mean we are just 12 wins away. Get in LADS we can do this.


2.) 12 Feb 2019 05:42:39
Mourinho won more in a similar period akrubbish. Stoneage is talking about consistently competing which is something we have done for decades.


3.) 12 Feb 2019 08:26:34
Obviously meant "have not done in decades".


4.) 12 Feb 2019 08:56:05
So if we win this year we won't be able to do it consistently for decades? what kind of logic is that?
Also mourinho won more yet got sacked from two clubs (different reasons though) . If Klopp doesn't win nothing say next year i am pretty sure the pressure would just go crazy on him. If you don't win much top players stop reacting to managers and look for better winning opportunities. It has always happened. Liverpool would not be able to hold players like salah mane firmino and van dyk if we keep building and don't win nothing.
Again we are in pole position to win and so we must not think for anything less.


5.) 12 Feb 2019 09:00:04
Hold your nerve lads, 12 games to go 🤨.


6.) 12 Feb 2019 09:38:27
We’ve only lost one game all season. We haven’t sold our best players and we’ve brought players in. Some of our younger players are doing well and we have a bigger stand too. The club is moving in the right direction title or no title.
City have gone up a gear and we are starting to see our key players return to fitness and let’s be honest our fixtures for the remaining games aren’t unreasonable. There is nothing but excited nerves from our fans to indicate we won’t take home the trophy. Keep your feet grounded lads!


7.) 12 Feb 2019 11:24:49
akrubbish - we all want to twin the title this year. but some here are getting carried away as if we'll never have a chance again. And that is the point I think the OP was making is that the big picture is more relevant here. The club are actually moving in a direction they haven't been able to sustain for decades. Win or lose this season, that in itself is progress and incentive for top players to come to us. I think these guys can see the vision now and direction that FSG and Klopp are taking the club in.


8.) 12 Feb 2019 13:15:33
I’m hoping for a dynasty too, stoneage.

I just hope we don’t fall at dallas-t fence. 🤞

🙈😂.


9.) 12 Feb 2019 13:30:43
Love it zed.


10.) 12 Feb 2019 15:27:33
I hate it when people go on about us not winning trophies then list the finals we’ve been in. The fact is under Klopp we have a good chance of winning trophies, the trick is to be able to compete in the competitions first then eventually the trophies will come.
We lost on penalties to City in the League cup, Moreno had a mare in the Europa League and Karius threw away the champions league. How is any of that just down to Klopp? He did his job by getting us there and then circumstances went against us.
The main thing as I said is to consistently compete, then the trophies will come. Getting rid of a manager that has proven he can compete with the very best would just set us back years. Regardless of whether we win it this year we have to keep Klopp.
I’d be a lot more worried if we weren’t getting to finals or were way behind in the league but we’re not. We have proven under Klopp that we are one of the best teams around we just need to keep the faith and stop whinging like spoiled brats because we’ve only got to the CL final but we didn’t win. 99.9% of football fans will never even see their team play in a CL final and we’ve been in 3 out of the last 13.
We are one of only a handful of teams that has a chance of winning the major trophies yet some are still not happy. I just don’t understand the thinking I really don’t.


11.) 12 Feb 2019 17:10:08
I think that the easiest opportunity we have had to win the EPL title was in 2013/ 2014, but it was not meant to be. We have a clear opportunity now, but the situation and environment was completely different. 2013/ 14 was all about on-field performance, with management and everything else in a chaotic state full of missteps and mistakes. Even if we had won, no one would expected us to win the next year with Suarez gone and Rodgers and staff doing their usual thing (look at what happened with all the players they bought with the Suarez money? ) .

The situation now is completely different. Everything has been looked at from the ground up in terms of training facilities, stadium expansion, development of youth and investing in players with current ability and/ or future potential. Even the commercial side of the business is being run far better than it has been, and that has a massive effect on the which players you are able to put out on the pitch. What I am saying is that the environment to create a dynasty is better today than it ever has been for us in the EPL era.

Dynasty to me means 10 years. Not necessarily winning every title and trophy in sight. But at least dominating for that much time. Dominating and scaring the sh*t out of everyone every single weekend and mid-week. If Klopp wins titles for 2-3 years this will be known as the "Klopp years". If the team is able to win and dominate for as long as a decade then this will be known as the "Klopp Dynasty". Pretty much the same as Fergie, I would say.


12.) 12 Feb 2019 19:11:49
The first title is ALWAYS the hardest one to win cos of the long drought that came before it. That is what this team is dealing with. We became a much better team the moment BR was sacked and Klopp walked in the door. That much is a fact. We built from the ground up with money yes, but with a true strategy behind the types of players being targeted not just for their talent BUT their mentality as human beings. We just have to get the monkey off our backs by winning the first title in 3 decades and hopefully this year will BE the year.


13.) 12 Feb 2019 21:16:48
Whilst I agree with much of what you say here ak, if we don't win it I don't think it will be down to silly performances. I'm not sure we have the most balanced team in the league, even if we did, we need the strongest squad, not just starting 11.

If we lost to City on goal difference or by 1-3 points, we could still finish with a points total that would have seen us crowned winners in almost any other PL year. We can't control what City do, but we could end up looking back at the games we played against them this season: we got 1 point, they got 4.

That said, it's till in our hands. 12 wins or 11 and a draw and it's ours. Easier said than done though hey.


 

 

05 Feb 2019 21:05:30
I think what people are worried about is that at the start of the season we were playing badly but getting results. Now were playing badly and not getting them! So where is the turnaround going to come from?

People were saying that Klopp was saving the players from burnout at the end of the season by reining them in a bit at the start. Well now is the time to unleash the full effect! We need a response. I honestly thought that this would happen against Leicester- to keep the pressure turned up.

If we can get the fab four scoring for fun again like last year, our new defensive solidity should mean we could be winning games 4-0 rather than 4-3.

stoneage

1.) 05 Feb 2019 21:14:08
Not sure Coutinho is going to get involved 😂.


2.) 05 Feb 2019 21:19:59
Stoneage, how can we unleash the full effect when half your potential starters are injured in critical areas? City lost Fernandinho and lost 3 out of 4 games. Just for perspective. How was Klopp supposed to know that VVD would get so ill he lost 4 kilos or Milner would get so ill he had to travel separately with the team before the WH game or that Gini or Hendo would be out at the last minute vs WH or that Gomez's injury would take him out for the whole season? I mean, I can keep going. We can't keep acting like these things don't affect the team and preparation for games cos they do.

These are the realities we have been dealt and we have to find a way to rise above them and still have a chance when out of it. Support and positivity is what is needed now cos the boys and manager deserve it for what they have done thus far and if we abandon them now (like many did at Anfield vs LC) then we should not be surprised if we don't win the title.


3.) 05 Feb 2019 21:58:24
Interesting perspective RW, thanks. Clearly injuries are affecting us, as they would any team. But with the signings we made over the summer we are in many ways stronger than we were last season. I am wondering if it is down to tactics, rather than personnel. Shaq and Fab give us a new dimension going forwards, so why are we scoring less? Last night it seemed to me that the players could be a bit over-coached. they were over-thinking it when they got to the edge of the box. A couple of times Firmino could have run at goal or shot, but in every case they opt to try two thread the needle passes instead, handing the advantage to the WH defenders.

Whilst I appreciate that we have injuries, I am wondering why Klopp doesn't take the shackles off the players that are not injured. It's either that, or the pressure is getting to the players, cos they don't look like themselves.

ps KK92- Shaq is now part of the Fab 4. It's like when Ringo replaced Pete Best!


4.) 05 Feb 2019 22:41:59
Stone, nice to have a good discussion for a change in the midst of this OTT mayhem currently going on. I fully agree with your points and premise and you have good arguments to make. It could be that our boys are being over-coached and are hence, over thinking things. It could also be that they are being over-coached hence, over-thinking things cos they lack confidence due in themselves which is affecting their decision-making.

Football is an instinctive game where confidence is huge. When you are confident, you don't go to things. They come to you. Check the players last night. They mostly made "safe" passes. Why? Cos they are no confident enuff to make that telling pass or take risks cos they know that mayhem could happen should a pass go astray and we get caught out. Bobbie was a great example. He put every foot wrong last night and that is my point.

The current state of affairs is affecting the players mental state and Klopp (if you saw his post game presser, is feeling it too. I propose that they go back to basics and just focus on football. Forget the title, forget City the whole thing. Focus on football and getting that mojo back and let's unleash that on B'mouth come Sat. Cheers, man.


5.) 06 Feb 2019 12:31:05
Maybe the team mentality and preparations are fine and the only problem here is the fans unrealistic expectations, someone a couple of months back joked that it may take a record breaking number of points to win the league this year and that got stuck in the fans young minds . And they started to expect a win in every game . well maybe its not a record breaking season, we may drop more points, city will definitely drop points, I don't know come May who will be champion, but I know I am going to enjoy every game until then, because its been one of the best seasons for us for a while, good football, good team spirit and we need to ignore everything else and support the boys.


 

 

18 Jan 2019 18:36:13
I just want to point out re Coutinho that he never 'feigned' an injury. All we know is that while his head was being turned by Barce, Klopp said in press conferences that he had a bad back. This was Klopp's decision and whether it was true or whether it was to deflect questions, we will never know. But we also don't know that Coutinho was feigning. So let's take that out of the debate re whether he would be welcome back or not. I for one would welcome him with open arms. His kids are scousers and he'd be a perfect Lallana replacement in the squad.

stoneage

1.) 18 Jan 2019 18:44:01
Lol. So far from the truth.


2.) 18 Jan 2019 19:04:08
Yes we do. He pulled me out of the squad because of injury but then went to play for Brazil days later.


3.) 18 Jan 2019 19:10:25
Stoneage, I never believed he was injured nor feigned injury. Klopp may have just said that to make an excuse for him not playing the game we had to play at the time. Now, Cou playing for Brazil three days afterwards, just made the situation awkward, something that in the bigger scheme of things, does not really matter, IMO.

Now as for whether we would welcome him back or not, I personally think that Klopp has moved on from him and made us a much better, more complete, and more consistent outfit. We are a more well-rounded team than when he was here with players committed fully to what the manager wants and why would Klopp want to mess that up by getting him back? I don't see it. I think we need to move on from him cos frankly, he ain't worth the trouble. He made his bed and he should lie in it.


4.) 18 Jan 2019 19:18:26
Holy moly! You let that one slip Anonymous Woolback. We know who you are now!


5.) 18 Jan 2019 19:20:29
Again, it was Klopp's choice to pull him from the squad. Perhaps protecting him for what was turned out to be a lucrative sale for us. Saying he had an injury is modern gamesmanship to keep the media at bay. You don't know the conversation at Melwood between Klopp and Coutinho and there's no evidence that Coutinho feigned.


6.) 18 Jan 2019 19:26:45
He did fake an injury but so did VVD so we can’t really have a go at couts then praise VVD for coming to us. I would have him back because I don’t think we have the money to buy him that’s the only reason. Am sure there cheaper options out there.


7.) 18 Jan 2019 19:47:21
Cheaper and much much better options out there.


8.) 18 Jan 2019 20:15:48
I wouldn’t want to see him playing for ManU or Chelsea.


9.) 18 Jan 2019 20:17:08
As far as I'm aware he was out for Barcelona when he joined. I think he missed a good few games if I'm remembering correctly.


10.) 18 Jan 2019 21:17:04
I'd love to see him at Man United. I can't think of anything that would make me cheer louder than Fabinho, Gomez, Trent, Robbo and Virgil wiping him out time and time again at least twice a season.


11.) 18 Jan 2019 21:28:57
Riiiiigght, ok. Clearly have no clue.


12.) 18 Jan 2019 21:55:52
I don’t think Coutinho would join Utd.
PSG, perhaps Germany?
Does Messi have the position that Coutinho would otherwise occupy in any other team?


13.) 18 Jan 2019 22:29:33
Wilson can replace Lallana Stone age, Coutinho was a great player for us but if we're going to spend huge money on somebody it should be to make the 11 stronger and to do that by buying Couts he'd have to be bought to play in the middle 3.


14.) 18 Jan 2019 22:31:23
Very true John.


15.) 18 Jan 2019 22:33:56
Salah
Coutinho Firmino. Mane
Keita Fabinho
Robertson VanDijk Gomez A. Arnold
Alisson

He is the missing piece of the jigsaw.


16.) 18 Jan 2019 22:35:13
That's a terrible shout MK, he's top draw as you well know, United is the last place I'd personally want to see him end up.


17.) 18 Jan 2019 22:51:03
Who cares? He had the chance to part of something special and he chose not to. Fate will sort the rest out.

I wish the lad all the best but we have to move on, without him. The club and the shirt are more important than any individual and always will be.

The best player in the world is useless to us if he doesn’t believe in the team, a player who wants to run through brick walls for the team is priceless.


18.) 19 Jan 2019 00:13:45
Waro, each to their own. I'm leaning the other way though. It's a game, and it's just a job to him. It wouldn't be personal and even if it was, who cares? I thought we called the Blue half "bitter"?

Don't we want the top draw players in the Prem? Don't you want to beat our rivals at their best? It's a bit of a sham to hope all our rivals are so weak we win by default.

Coutinho is just one of thousands of footballers in the world and he has nothing to do with us anymore. I honestly don't care what he does because "We've got Mane! "


19.) 18 Jan 2019 20:58:14
😂 sorry forgive the typo!

We do however have Ed001’s word for it and i take his word over anybody else’s when it comes to matters at Liverpool.


20.) 19 Jan 2019 04:56:16
I wouldt want any player back who forced his way out of the club. Torres, Masch, Suarez, Coutinho, etc. I don't wish any ill-will on them as it is a game and a job after all but there's something that grates with me about the thought of any of them feeling that Liverpool were not good enough in the first place.
Some midfielders would play with two broken legs for LFC, others would skip matches with a ‘sore back’.


21.) 19 Jan 2019 10:29:35
I think there’s a big difference between the players mentioned:
1) Suarez - brought shame on the club, would never be welcome back
2) Mascherano - completely disrespected the club and the fans.
3) Sterling - see Mascherano, as well as being a greedy PoS.
4) Coutinho - feigned injury
5) Torres - put in a transfer request.

I don’t have a problem with Torres at all. I don’t see anything wrong in his actions. He wanted to leave, he put in a transfer request. That’s the right way to go about it.


22.) 19 Jan 2019 13:01:18
Torres did nothing wrong. We were a sinking ship at the time and i’m pretty sure Gerrard is on record as telling Torres to leave for the sake of his career.

Suarez was a little weasel BUT at the very least he gave his all in that very last season once he realised we weren’t going to budge.

Sterling let the club know 6 months in advance he didn’t want to sign a new contract and i find it hard to believe that Rodgers’ disastrous management didn’t have a large part in that.

Mascherano and Coutinho both forced their way out and demanded that the club let them both go on spot without warning. I have no time for either of them.


23.) 19 Jan 2019 23:03:08
Let's hope man united sign couthinho koubabaily and several other top class players then MK, they can comfortably outspend us and start winning league after league after league again. Im sure with you not being bitter that you will just shrug and say "oh well they're a class team good luck to them", you've written two quite awful posts here mate which is unlike you. My guess is you work with or have friends who support man u who maybe wound you about buying couthinho and your fronting that your not bothered about him going there. Call me bitter if you want MK, I don't want him at united and I'd love nothing more than to see them drop down the league like a stone.

That would be the dreamiest window since the last dream window.

ps - a player being in the last year of his contract doesn't mean that the buying club gets them any cheaper, it just means that the selling club gets less, and the player gets a higher signing on fee. Player power!
