When it rains it pours! Just read that Ox not only injured his acl but the medial ligament and hamstring too. So we may not see him on the field in 2018 again. Recovery is going to take time and effort. Really empathize for the guy. Was beginning to come onto his own, and carve his own place in the team. 😒 🤞.

Big shame for the lad, was coming into his own as well - hopefully he can make a full recovery.


2.) 14 May 2018 20:12:19
If that's true, everything else will be healed by the time his ACL has healed. It isn't like only 1 thing heals at a time.


3.) 14 May 2018 20:24:10
Don't count on seeing Ox until December 2018.


4.) 14 May 2018 20:53:15
He will be like a new signing for the second part of the season and all being well he will come back big and strong.

He has really impressed both on and off the pitch.

Got a feeling the Ox is going to pick up plenty of trophies with us in the next few seasons.

Let’s get number 6 to give him a boost.


5.) 14 May 2018 21:23:47
A bad blow and an area I get increasingly worried about. With Coutinho gone and Can likely to leave this summer we have a shortage in midfield, we have Keita arriving which eases some of the worry but now Chamberlain isn’t due back until December.

As it is we have.

Henderson (some injury issues) .
Milner.
Wijnaldum.
Can (leaving in summer) .
Chamberlain (out until December) .
Lallana (likely to leave) .

Keita

It seems Ceballos is highly likely which if happens gives us.

Henderson.
Milner.
Keita.
Wijnaldum.
Chamberlain.
Ceballos.

Plus Coutinho still needs replacing which hopefully mean Fekir or Pulisic arrives. Given Chamberlain is out until at least December and the possibility of any of the front three being injured or out of form, should we look to sign Ceballos, Pulisic and Fekir?

Would give us great depth and quality in midfield and attack.


6.) 14 May 2018 21:26:36
Chambo actually sourced 2 tickets for a father and son he met near the end of the season.

class act on and off the pitch!

hope he stays positive through his injury and can get through this!


7.) 14 May 2018 22:44:10
I kept thinking we got lucky with being him injury free compared to his arsenal days and now he's crocked. At least he's got the summer to recover and hopefully he can make it back before the busy christmas period.


8.) 14 May 2018 22:57:46
Hopefully he doesn't lose his pace and explosiveness. Really liked him this season, and offers a good option in the middle or wide. We Definetely need cover out wide, pace and the option to play as a forward or attacking midfielder too. Fekir ticks that box for me.


9.) 14 May 2018 22:42:25
Jonesred I understand your concerns and I’ve just been having a near identical conversation with a mate as he had the same worries. But I personally think that if we sign our targets (Cellabos and AM) along with Keita, then we will have sufficient players to cope with Ox’s injury.

If we use this seasons formation as an example and look at the squad hypothetically with those signings. Hendo, Keita and Fekir start with gigi, Milner and Cellabos in reserve is plenty, even if let’s say we lose hendo and Fekir to injury, we still would have a midfield of Cellabos, Keita and gig/ Milner, and then gives players like Trent and Woodburn the opportunity to play in midfield. Especially if we sign a rightback as the eds have mentioned.

I’d say signing another midfielder on top of all that could end up being more disruptive than productive.
Cheers.


10.) 15 May 2018 01:10:48
Don’t forget about TTA.


11.) 15 May 2018 05:57:23
Terrible shame. Ox had become an automatic starter in the midfield. An explosive player. He was outstanding against City in the CL.

This is clearly a very serious injury to his knee. It is entirely possible he will come back as good as before. Also entirely possible he will never be the same player.

At this point, the club has to plan for life without him. "Back in December2018", "nine months" etc are all just guesses.

So we very much need to bring in another midfielder now, in addition to Keita.


12.) 16 May 2018 15:27:32
No way Lallana leaves this summer - I expect him to make an impact when he gets subbed in in the 65th minute of the CL Final.

That being said, I only think we'll bring in 1 or 2 additional midfielders.

I personally get excited about the potential of a Milner, Keita, Ox midfield, and I don't think it's the end of the world if Lallana starts the season in Ox's spot

Bottom line, I'm not too worried about our midfield depth, even though it looks rough for the CL Final.


13.) 17 May 2018 15:58:50
He is only 24 yo. I remember Mane was injured and got back in 2 months.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, . "

Sorry, but this comes to mind when thinking about what has happened in just a few months. From the depths of one high to the depth of the lowest of lows. Mr. Dickens, take a bow.

So if that looping ball goes in (the one Milner cleared acrobatically on the line), we are tied with Bournemouth, 2-2. And Mane's curler still hits the bar. And the boys still don't look like they can figure out that dense fog of Bournemouth players stacked up in their penalty area, for the rest of the game. So the players go back home with lingering doubts still in their heads. And they go into the Atletico game, still with the same lingering doubts. Maybe everything looks fine in practice and in the team meetings, but only performance at game time counts.

But the ball didn't go in because of Milner's heroics. And that's what he brings to this team. Especially when Hendo is not around. He not only saved this game but made sure we approach the next one with the right frame of mind.

Oh, and I see it's "open season" on Firmino's head for the next few days/ weeks.

I will defend my Bobby til the death!


2.) 07 Mar 2020 19:41:37
OP, or if Bobby does not miss a sitter from 8 yards out, we still win the game, yeah? I don't know what you are on about here but you seem to want to bash the team for not switching back on to free-flowing football all of a sudden whereas it is clear they are still a bit woozy in the head and trying to clear the cob webs. If I am wrong then pls, clarify.

Either way, I am happy for the win cos the boys needed it. One could say that they showed the very mental fortitude and toughness to keep fighting and come back from the ref and VAR screwing them for a goal and the ref literally trying to even things up with some of the most biased officiating I have ever seen. Our boys took all these blows on the chin, fought back and got the win. I would ask you to focus on these positives BUT you seem to have other ideas. So Milner saved a goal. Is that not his job as a defender? Up Da Pool!

Well in Der Meister.


4.) 08 Mar 2020 00:26:27
Read it again Red Meister. Slowly this time. And use glasses if it helps. You'll realize the post was strictly about praising Milner and the important role he played today, and in general, to the team, through voicing "what if" scenarios.

What's to clarify if your grasp of the language is weak?

Good afternoon Ed001. Trust all is well. Small request, if possible, and only if it does not cause undue inconvenience on the site and the Eds. Please have someone go back to policing the live chat. There are still neanderthal specimens making appearances and killing the atmosphere there, while parading themselves as virtuous supporters on these banter pages. Too many people think that the right to an opinion includes the right to abuse. Thanks for considering.

ArAy1969

{Ed001's Note - you are right, we do need people to police it, would you be interested?}


1.) 04 Mar 2020 11:48:39
I don't have the patience nor the calmness to be able to do it, sadly. I lose my cool so easily with some of the guys, (and you know me well enough to know I fly off the handle from time to time 😉 ) . Otherwise, I'm there every game, and love chatting with the guys there and would have done it.

{Ed001's Note - ok mate no worries.}


2.) 04 Mar 2020 12:20:34
I love the live chat, its great when we win but when we lose its just a hive of abuse. Being critical of the team is fine, but some of it is laughable, one being that our season has gone up in smoke and that we have bottled it. I think there is still a long way to go yet!


3.) 04 Mar 2020 12:43:41
Wyred it's been ridiculous I have stopped chatting on there I drop in but its mainly to chat to you aray midlands robbie and the regular realist fans there is great banter and on Saturday I was soooooo drunk i couldn't read or write but I tried my best 😋😋.


4.) 04 Mar 2020 12:40:57
I will do it ed.

{Ed033's Note - ok thanks, i will email you berg469


5.) 04 Mar 2020 13:27:49
I've never used the live chat but in the heat of the moment we all say things which are utter nonsense so I can imagine it being interesting to say the least 😅.


6.) 04 Mar 2020 14:25:49
Not to belabour the point, but last night was above the limits. Calling yourself a supporter and then calling the players "prostitutes" several times throughout the game is really not "interesting". It's evidence of lack of breeding, education and functional brain cells.


7.) 04 Mar 2020 14:26:37
Thanks very much berg469. Highly appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - I second that, it is very appreciated thank you berg.}


8.) 04 Mar 2020 14:49:24
I have now emailed berg469 about it.


9.) 04 Mar 2020 14:49:34
I think ArAy is referring to Kloppo324, who basically just tried to get under everyone's skin, basically being a total moron. It's a pity because there can be good banter between posters, then you have one tube trying to ruin it for everyone.
If Kloppo324 was a school kid then I would give him a by ball but sadly I don't think he is, which makes you think what type of sad sack gets his kicks out of being a complete arse on a banter site? so come on Kloppo324 grow up man, get yourself a life man.
Strangely enough I've never seen him post once on the site, yet spends most matches on the live chat.


10.) 04 Mar 2020 16:10:33
There's policing it and then there's kicking people out because they share a different opinion to you. I hope whoever does do it realises this. I took what Kloppo (and everyone else) said last night with a pinch of salt and did it effect me? No. I'm a 38 year old man so i would be a little bit concerned if i was worrying to much about what got said on a football live chat with people i've never met or likely to meet. For me from what i read, no personal insults were made so i don't really see what the big fuss is about. Perhaps people should tell their mums on him or get their dad to beat his dad up as their dad is bigger than his dad lol. Anyway look forward to chatting to you all next live game.


11.) 04 Mar 2020 16:35:05
I think the kloppo person probably rubbed a few up the wrong way. I wasnt sure he was even a fan. personally i love it on there with JK, Berg, ArAy, Wyred, Ugbes, longthing, and loads more, from the realistic fans on there you can see its just thought out criticism or frustration and from a standpoint of watching nearly every game, I can't get to Anfield due to work but online i've not missed a game for at least 4 years and i always have the chat on while im watching.
Love it on there myself, YNWA.


12.) 04 Mar 2020 16:36:45
I agree, someof the comments are wild and other team supporters coming on for a wind up doesn't help at times either.


13.) 04 Mar 2020 16:56:13
Thanks for understanding, Ed001. I owe this site a whole lot and I wish I could help or contribute more than just an opinion from time to time. But you'd have a 20 strong list of blocked people after every live chat, LOL. 😂.


14.) 04 Mar 2020 18:02:35
I'm on the live chat because I can scream "we will win" and I get away with it every time. If I tried that here, I'd immediately be called "a pompous and egoist ass, sitting on a high horse and thinking my favored team has a divine right to win every game". 🤷‍♂️.


15.) 04 Mar 2020 18:12:12
Thanks berg 👍🏻.


16.) 04 Mar 2020 18:29:12
JK23. I'm pretty sure Ed001 and 33 don't want to use their time, money and effort such as the live chat only for a couple of half wits to abuse it. If so what would be the point? I would guess we are mainly all adults on the live chat so why not act like one?


17.) 04 Mar 2020 19:29:41
I have been anointed by ed033 to be the police of live chat thank you so much for the honour hopefully it's a privilege I never have to use but best of all I am made up to help and contribute looking forward to our next game peace and love to you all.

{Ed047's Note - nice one berg


18.) 04 Mar 2020 19:38:49
Jk23 most of the time it can be a simple misunderstanding like how two people can get different meaning from the same txt sorta like lost in translation but a simple chat can often sort these things out anyway let's chat during the next match and enjoy ourselves.


19.) 04 Mar 2020 19:50:00
Irish I agree mate but from what I’ve seen on there is other fans pretending to be LFC fans and on the wind up. If us being successful has driven them to waste their time on doing it then so be it. I wonder if the other teams chats have other clubs fans on them as well. I’ve not seen any personal insult comments so if I’ve missed them then I understand and agree there is no place for it. But if it’s people trying to give us banter. Let’s just give it them back. Instead of telling the Ed’s on them and like you said wasting their time.


20.) 04 Mar 2020 20:25:08
Berg look forward to it mate 👍.


21.) 04 Mar 2020 21:08:36
I’m so starting some rubbish during the Bournemouth game.


22.) 04 Mar 2020 21:12:30
On the subject of the Live Chat, I appear to be on a chat ban since well before last season (can access, but none of my comments come up) . Any chance of leaving it off?

{Ed033's Note - - Something Red - is no longer on 'Jankers'.


23.) 04 Mar 2020 21:22:23
Berg don’t be letting that power go to your head and blocking me but best of luck with it mate!

Am reading that we are now called "the Unbearables", in certain quarters. Would have preferred "the Unbeatables" (so far) but Unbearables is so much more annoying, irritating and infuriating. Love it.

ArAy1969

1.) 20 Jan 2020 13:42:40
Embrace it is what i say :)


2.) 20 Jan 2020 15:56:24
Totally embrace it. It's not just the prem either, 2 cl finals in a row, one's won. Super cup and cwc since then. I didn't think it would happen again, 3 times in a row but I reckon we will make cl final again. Over 2 legs I don't see us getting beaten. Let's hope city make the final too so we can all turn round on the kop.


3.) 20 Jan 2020 19:26:19
OP, I welcome their mockery, man. The Unbearables! . Love the sound of that.


4.) 20 Jan 2020 20:53:16
There is a banner on the Kop on match days that simply says “The Unbearables”. What started as a slur by opposition supporters has been adopted as a badge of honour by Liverpool supporters. “The Invincible Unbearables” would be even better.


5.) 21 Jan 2020 00:55:45
I read a good quote on the line at the world wide interweb:

Saying 'Liverpool fans will be unbearable if they win the league' is like poking a Tiger with a stick for 30 years, then being upset when it finally claws your face off’.

Very apt.

{Ed025's Note - that is very good IDOG, but i would say more of a pussy cat over the past 30 years myself mate.. :)

That's the key; building up the quality of the squad, not just focusing on the starting XI. ManC can lose the likes of Mendy, De Bruyne or Sane, for example, for an entire season and not feel it. Take one of our stars out for the season and we would feel it for sure, because of the gulf in quality between the starting XI and the rest.

I'd cheat and use it twice. The first time to be at the Azteca Stadium, Mexico City, Mexico on the 21st June 1970 and watch Brazil beat Italy for the World Cup. The second would be at any of the Brazil games at the World Cup in Spain in 1982.

If we are successful in bringing Havertz in, I think it's as replacement for Keita in the short term and being Henderson's replacement in the long term. I'm sure we had grandiose plans for bringing in Keita too, but we've seen how that has turned out. Time will tell.

Agreed Keita can be spectacular based on his record in the Leipzig days. But how many of us are willing to stake a winning season, next year, on Keita being there, based on what we have seen with him at LFC? And in any case, there is always a transition and there are always options. And Klopp loves options. Havertz can be the long term replacement for Henderson, immediate replacement for Keita or any other permutation Klopp wants to try. But Havertz is an excellent long term choice. Crucial part of midfield settled for the next 8-10 years if all goes well. Unless you think Curtis Jones is the answer (which I don't) .

I wouldn't argue with that save being the best ever, all time, Ed001. But why he is not given his due respect is something I will never understand. You hear far more about other GK's, historically, than you hear about him.

They usually add 30 seconds per substition at the end of the games anyway. So not much time can be wasted. I see it more of continuing to coddle players; those with slight knocks will have the option to go off.

The Barcelona game for me. We were bigger underdogs in the Barcelona game than we were against Milan. We played without two of our key players (Firmino and Salah), and had a colossal first leg loss score to overcome. Playing at Anfield balanced out some of the odds. But I can't help thinking that we were a bit lucky in Istanbul (penalty wins always involve a lot of luck) . At Anfield against Barcelona, there was greater drive and determination, and we stuck to a strategy and plan (score as early as possible and keep going at them) . It was 90 minutes of punching and counterpunching, but after Wijnaldum's second goal everyone, Barcelona players included, could clearly see who was going to win. The fact that Barcelona still feels the aftermath of that one game to this day, tells you a lot about LFC's achievement of that night.

I've always felt that Keegan was as important and impactful to the team as Dalglish was, even though their styles and positions were different, and they never played together. Circumstances dictate how you are seen. While in the UK Keegan is seen as someone who went for the money (I've come to accept it as a fact of life since loads of players have done it and do it, since) there's no denying that Keegan's standing amongst his peers and the footballing world peaked after he left Liverpool. He came in second for Ballon d'Or voting in 1977, and won it in 1978 and 1979, while playing for Hamburg SV. Would he have won those if still with Liverpool?

If we assume that he left for personal fame and fortune, then he achieved his goal.
