Jadon Havertz, Firminho does his talking on the pitch. :)

Agree0 0Disagree

Apart from his obviousfootballing talent, Thiago speaks good English and I think Keita should take a leaf out of his book. He also comes across as nice, modest and intelligent.

Agree2 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 15:55:11
What about firmino Hamidou?

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 16:20:25
OP, Thiago has always spoken English and this, for a very long time. I have been watching the Bundesliga highlight show for years now and Thiago always did his interviews in fluent English.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 16:24:27
What about Firmino? His name's Bobby. That's English!

Bit concerned about tonight's game. It's not the fact that players are missing (Henderson, Milner, Ox and probably Alison) it's the fact we will be missing leaders on the pitch.

This does worry me. It seems last season we were fortunate with injuries - or the lack of them - but we seem to be over run with them so far and so early.

I'm worried that Jordan has missed quite a few games and got injured again in his first game back. Jurgen said he took him off as a precaution, but that obviously wasn't the case. Do we know how long he is likely to be missing?

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 14:45:27
People worry about stuff that hasn’t even happened yet, Alisson could well play tonight and it’s doubtful that Milner and Ox would have even started had they been fit.

Agree2 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 14:45:57
It is a myth to say we had no injuries last year.

Alisson
Matip
Lovren
Gomez
Fabinho
Henderson
Oxlade Chamberlain
Keita

All had extended periods out last season through injury.

Agree2 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 16:09:42
Be positive, KBL. Think it's about time we fixed our mistakes against Arsenal and gave them a right whooping.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 16:25:23
Lamborini I 9 I, Spot on BUT when you listen to the media pundits, they act like LFC had NO injuries just cos VVD or any of the front 3 were not injured for as long as Laporte was for City., and then act like none of our boys was ever injured.

LFC had more injuries than City did last season BUT clearly, all the players you mentioned, don't count.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 16:35:43
I think Hendo is a big miss. I think keita HAS to have a good game tonight. Please naby! Please do something kid.

Weird, I've got this funny feeling that keita will end up at arsenal one day.

I'd much rather he were a massive success for us of course. Tonight could kick him on if he does well.

Agree0 0Disagree

Afternoon Ed001,

How you feeling about the game this evening?

Just had a call with a colleague who is an avid Arsenal fan and season ticket holder and he says that this is the most confident he has ever felt before a trip to Anfield in years because of:

1. No crowd at Anfield
2. No Henderson
3. No Alisson (and maybe no Thaigo? )
and most importantly 4. he thinks that the Arsenal team will be feeling confident after beating us on the last two occasions.

He predicts Auba to attack the left hand side (trent and who ever is playing RCB), cut inside often and regularly test Adrian from distance. I'm hoping we can dominate enough in the middle of the pitch to cut off their front men getting the ball too much.

Where do you see the key battle being this game?

Red Sandman.

28 Sep 2020 13:09:59
As long as adrian makes no clangers and Keita doesn't play we'll be fine i reckon. But I doubt either to be fair. Worried.

Agree4 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 13:11:31
In my eyes, even our back up midfielders are better than arsenal's first team so it's a blow but we should be fine.

Also on Adrian I believe he deserves a little more respect, yes he cocked up in the Atletico Madrid game but in the league his performances were very solid an we didn't lose a game with him in net.

This is a very different game from the previous 2 against Arsenal.

Agree4 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 13:20:06
I agree this is a very different game than the last 2 meetings for sure. hopefully will be a better outcome too. Fingers crossed on adrian though.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 13:49:01
Spot on, Magico. THIS is the game where both teams need to show up. The other two games are like "Yeah, but. ". Tonight is the real deal. I can understand why the OP's colleague is very confident. They have no choice cos they are yet to beat LFC at Anfield in almost a decade and are have only beaten LFC under Klopp once in 9 PL tries.

As for our team, we seem to play better when we are missing key players (see Barcelona game) cos our team do not believe in excuses hence, go out there and do the job.

I am also sure that Klopp and our boys have heard all the crap being spoken in the Arsenal-friendly media and fans, giving it the big'uns cos they won a meaningless game via two defensive errors and won a preseason friendly on penalties. The team talk is all done, at this point IMO. Time to show up and show out.

Agree2 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 13:59:17
Unbearable Reds - Adrian deserves our support as a Liverpool, but certainly not respect. Respect is earned from good performances on behalf of our club, which Adrian does not provide.
We won games in spite of Adrian, never because of him. It is perfectly reasonable to be very wary of what he may do in games.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 13:59:26
Alisson and Thiago might play yet. The only player definitely out is Henderson. Hopefully the Arsenal players have the same over confidence. Adrian played a third of the 38 games at the start of last season and we won every single match in that period. Fabinho, Gini and Jones/ Keita is still leagues ahead of Xhaka, Elneny and Ceballos.

They beat is in a dead rubber and a friendly. They probably need to wind their necks in a bit if they think they are favourites at Anfield. They could well win but there is never a good time to play this Liverpool team. Barcelona thought they had us on the ropes when we had to play Shaqiri and Origi and we still battered them 4-0.

Agree4 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 14:06:21
We'll win tonight, I have no doubt about it and in no way worried about it. Bring them on.

Agree4 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 14:13:37
Very interesting points raised lads.

I guess the thing that I find interesting about my colleague's thoughts is that they think Liverpool have some obvious weaknesses, and so will be looking to take the game to us and attack those weaknesses. From a liverpool persepctive at least it sounds like they are going to have a go, rather than sit back and hope for a draw or sneak a goal on the counter.

If this is true, its going to be one hell of an open game! Both teams wanting to win and both teams looking to attack!

Red Sandman.

Clearly you've forgot the super cup then Lowe 😝.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 14:29:59
I fully expect them to do what they've done in their 2 previous games against us Sandman an sit deep and counter, similar to Chelsea last weekend.

1st goal is very important, hopefully we get it an they'll be forced out to play an I believe we can pick them off.

I'd much prefer to face the Arsenal teams of old who went toe to toe with us but I can't see it happening, teams are too intimated of a pasting when they face us nowadays.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 14:55:35
I have never understood why centre backs can't switch between LCB and RCB. Surely if one is really struggling against a striker who has targeted their side they could switch to see how the other does?

The example being if Auba attacks Gomez and Trent's side and Gomez was struggling, is it really that big of a change for VVD to take the RCB instead?

Not sure if that is small minded of me, but how big a difference could it be as a CB?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Most can.}

28 Sep 2020 15:32:14
I'll be shocked if we don't win. And I'd like a nice 4 0 to out arsenal firmly in their place.

They may have won a couple of away games but we won the league. Massive favourites.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 15:52:46
And Adrian "certainly" doesn't deserve our respect? What a nasty little comment, dressed up as constructive criticism. Why does a squad member who helped win the league and had a huge part in winning another European trophy not deserve respect?

I'd sooner have Adrian than loris or migs.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 16:38:55
Robbiesline - respect is earned, that’s all there is to it. You can force someone to act like they respect you or someone else, that’s easy. Doesn’t mean it’s real, though.
Adrian may have done well in the penalty shootout in the Super Cup, but his keeping denied us the chance of winning it in extra time anyway. In addition, his goalkeeping got us knocked out of two competitions within a matter of days that we were favourites to win. There’s nothing respectable about it - he’s a terrible goalkeeper and gets a free pass because he still can’t believe he’s playing for the PL champions. Frankly, neither can I.

To this day I hate that Leeds sold Utd Cantona. A good read that edd 1. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - cheers neggy. I remember being at Anfield the day we stopped United, we had played Leeds just a few days before and the difference between them was night and day. Leeds were dreadful, just came and defended for 90 min and somehow Cantona was on the bench, when he was by far their best player. United on the other hand were so unlucky, they must have hit the woodwork about 20 times in that game and we were all singing 'Always look on the bright side of life' to them each time as it was the song their fans were singing them days.}

28 Sep 2020 13:07:31
Didn’t Leeds sell him because he was caught knobbing Lee Chapman’s missus?

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 13:33:20
Was at that match between Liverpool vs utd and they kept singing 2 different songs with the same tune to Cantona about Chapmans wife was priceless.

Was at that Man utd game too Ed's 001 in the kop, couldn't talk for a day or so, was so horse 🐴 from all the singing. Great day.

Morning all! I hope everyone is well.

I am so excited at the prospect of Curtis Jones. Like many, I believe he is the real deal.

Question for Ed001, if you could compare him to any player (past or present) who would it be?

He does remind me a little of a certain little magic Brazilian playing in Barcelona currently, but I am interested to hear what you think!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he reminds me of Curtis Jones personally.}

28 Sep 2020 11:35:02
Thanks Ed!

Just wondering who I can compare him too and see how he could potentially fit in our system or how he could evolve/ improve etc.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - comparing players doesn't do that, just look at what he does and doesn't do, that is how to see what he could fit into.}

28 Sep 2020 11:47:33
I guess I meant who I can compare him to just out of interest and the question on fitting him into our system was a separate query. He fits in quite easily currently.

I'll leave it be. Thanks Ed, have a good one.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 11:57:26
Don't think comparing players is a good idea and besides the boy looks different to what is around.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 12:36:49
He reminds me of Ross Barkley but with a footballing brain.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 13:29:16
LOL Champs or any brain.

OP he reminds you of Rafinha? That's interesting.
Or you don't mean Coutinho do you? He'll be way better than him pretty soon. It never ceases to amaze me that people so easily forget just how inconsistent Coutinho was. Every time before a game and every time he got the ball it felt more like hope than expectation. Hence him not fitting our system.

Curtis Jones 2020 reminds me of a young Curtis Jones.
(I live in 2025 and he's absolutely brilliant now. Oh and don't worry guys, all is right with the world and yes, Liverpool are still champions! ) :D.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 14:10:55
Ah everyone is an individual mate, what will be will be, he looks special in his own way, it's far too early to start comparing. He needs to make a name for himself not what he's compared to, I believe he has the potential to do this, we shall see.

Agree2 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 14:37:57
Jurgen Meister - It is that Coutinho fella. Forgot his first name, Phillip or something? If Curtis can replicate what Coutinho did in his time at Liverpool he will have been a success though, for me anyway! Also, please tell me Klopp has signed a lifetime contract and is still managing us in 2025?

Salah - For sure, the good news is Klopp is giving him some good chances and if he can improve under anyone it'd be Jurgen. Exciting times.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 15:08:56
Agreed mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 15:46:04
Yep don't worry, cm. Jurgen signed a one year extension to his contract because he wanted to stick around to see us through to winning the treble-treble. He's still at the club now, just transitioning to a less hands-on and high-stress role. Meanwhile, Pep Lijnders is taking all press conferences and media duties because Klopp misread Bobby's text and dyed his hair white and his teeth purple.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 15:55:05
Reminds me of a young gazza, a bit.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 16:30:29
I think he’s quite different to many modern players as doesn’t really rely on pace or physicality, but has excellent read of the game, brilliant close control, good vision and awareness of space, excellent passing and an eye for scoring goals.

Long was off it yet as he’s such a young lad, but perhaps might develop into a role similar to that filled by Iniesta or David Silva?

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 09:04:26
How's it looking for Alisson tonight? Any update, Thiago on bench probably but nothing on Alisson, fancy Fabinho, Jones and Gini, Thiago getting another 30 minutes or so to boost his match fitness.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 12:29:42
Based on what I have seen, Ali is ore than likely out. However, there could still be a late fitness test to see if he can still go as I have seen news about that, as well. Fingers crossed.

It actually makes no sense to gripe loudly about something, and then in the same breath, say you know and understand perfectly why things are the way they are. It's like much ado about nothing. What's the point in the end? You're making an argument and then killing it at the same time.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 09:55:50
Cheers Ed!

I clicked a link a few minutes ago.

'Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has angered some Arsenal fans by 'liking' a tweet suggesting he deserves to be playing for a better club. '

Just shows how poisonous social media is, these celebrities can't even like a post without getting ripped apart. Funny thing is, he probably didn't mean bugger all by it but as long as you're on social media, you're asking for hassle.

Like you know, if say for an example Trent went and liked a post about him like that, I'd be thinking well clearly it's him saying 'Cheers for that' kind of thing not him actually agreeing.

Anyway, hope you're having a good day mate!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - the problem is that the social media companies are happy to have the abuse as it increases publicity when traditional media report on it.}

28 Sep 2020 10:01:51

28 Sep 2020 13:49:39
Awwwwww poor Pep! C'mon guys have a heart. The unfortunate fella has to piece together a team from a spindle of thread, some old buttons, a pair of broken glasses and box of matches. It's not fair that every other club in all the leagues have such big bloated squads. If only someone would give him 50 million pounds to buy another average defender. It can't be easy managing such a small squad on such a very tight budget.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Sep 2020 14:09:38
Yes George Formby the guy who makes the grills😂.
