Hi lads;

Great game and great win. Just saw Andy Gray say on Bein Sport that "It should not bring anyone any pleasure to see a giant of a club like Man Utd struggle the way it is struggling right now". Wait, What? That must be a sick joke, really. I mean, has this guy met any LFC or Man City fans ever?

In case Andy Gray is living under a rock or in some alternate reality, we at LFC are loving every minute of the way Utd is currently struggling and LONG may it continue. YNWA!


{Ed0333's Note - Mysoginistic tool comes to mind.

Im not really fussed about how ManU. Im just excited for how we are going.

2.) 16 Dec 2018 19:53:58
What about our struggles Andy you toaster head of a fool, u took great pleasure down the years picking holes in our team .

3.) 16 Dec 2018 20:02:12
Hailstones, he still does. You should see his game "analysis" on BeinSport with the other "genius" Ruud Guillit (CL games) . Comedy Central, really.

I know he does mate everyone does, we are always the last too get credit, same wid talk sport, sky, an Andy Muppet Gray an the gang, its only ex Liverpool players who talk about the positive aspects.

{Ed0333's Note - shouldn’t have be such a chauvinist pig and he would still had his job at Sky. Bet he doesn’t disrespect women in Qatar.

As the Late Al Davis (Former owner of the Oakland Raiders) would say, "Just win, baby! ".


1.) 12 Dec 2018 07:35:36
Those snarly tough guy Raiders, were really something. 👍.



12 Nov 2018 19:36:04
This one is for Ed25. Just want to say a HUGE bravo to your boys vs Chelsea last night. I felt they were brilliant, brave and determined. Your boys did ride their luck a bit and Pickford had a blinder BUT all in all, their perf. merited a point.

On another note, I have NO idea why Silva keeps playing Richarlison at CF. He is simply not a CF and does not play like one. I know he is young and still learning the game and the position BUT it is simply not working. Might as well give Calvert-Lewin a go if Tosun is not the guy Silva can count on. Congrats, man.


{Ed025's Note - cheers brover, we are lacking a top draw CF mate and richie has stepped up because we have a plethora of right sided wide men in the squad, hes done well to be fair and silva seems to have given up on tosun and feels that DCL is not up to the task at this time, we are improving though and maybe just maybe we will give you a game when we meet on 2nd of december..peace..

1.) 12 Nov 2018 21:16:22
Ed25, Maybe give us a game at Anfield? No way, man. I fully expect you to give us much more than a game come Dec. with the perf. I saw last night. You guys were able to match Chelsea's tempo and intensity and the off-the-ball work was tremendous out of possession. Maybe you know this already but I'm not one of those LFC or footie fans who just think all their team has to do is show up and the win is theirs.

As someone who played diff. sports (esp. football in the amateur leagues in France), I know how it is and how you have to first off, work hard, be humble, respect your opponent and compete for the right to play and win. It's going to be a derby game and I FULLY expect Everton to play out of their skins and match us step for step and if we want to win, we're going to have to earn it. Walcott is shocking, btw.

Lastly, A special mention for young Lookman. That boy is special and I felt he helped stabilize the midfield with his close control and ability to hold on to the ball. Saw him a lot at RBL (while watching Keita) and he was great there as well and RBL wanted to keep him too. Cheers, man!

{Ed025's Note - ademola has the talent brover but there are certainly question marks over his temperament and attitude, four successive managers have failed to give him a proper spell in the side which cant be a coincidence, i think hes very talented though and still have high expectations for him mate, im looking forward to our meeting and just hope we do ourselves justice.. peace..

2.) 12 Nov 2018 21:42:51
Gotta say I'm more worried about playing your lot Eds025 than utd next month, after your performance against Chelsea. Kudos.

{Ed025's Note - yeah i thought we done well IDLLK, the reds will be a different kettle of fish though as derbies now seem to be over emotional and the football not great to watch, but lets hope that with us playing some nice stuff and liverpool being a top side that the fayre on offer is better than usual mate..cheers..

3.) 13 Nov 2018 10:08:22
Everton showed that if Jordanigho (spelling) can be stopped so can Chelsea.

4.) 13 Nov 2018 13:51:34
It may well be an attitude problem with Lookman, but its curious as to why it wasn't an issue in Germany. Same goes for Sancho.

A lot of these young lads seem to develop attitude problems from lack of game time. They want too much too soon, but when they have first time options in other countries, its easy to see why. Especially from a development standpoint. I'd start Lookman ahead of Walcott, or at least loan him back to Germany.

Agree on the CF front, who would you go for? Ed025.

{Ed025's Note - we were after giroud in the summer eamon but his wife would not move up here so thats a non starter, myself i have always liked arnautovic but it looks like chelsea are going to pinch him from west ham, ben yedder would be a good option as well but how realistic that is im not sure mate, i still have high hopes for lookman and hope he knuckles down and gets a place in the side ahead of theo, but the manager sees these guys day in day out and i trust his decision..

Hi Read,

Well it seems neither Napoli nor PSG are interested in taking command of this CL group. They drew again so LFC are miraculously, still top of the group. So we live to fight another day. That said, we have issues in this team not just in midfield but collectively in terms of cohesion in all phases. Pretty sure Klopp knows that as well so hopefully, we can rectify it by Sun cos we are going to need to be WAY better than what we produced tonight. YNWA!


1.) 06 Nov 2018 22:31:51
Napoli are top of the group BRover.

2.) 06 Nov 2018 22:36:53
If we beat PSG at theirs and Napoli beat red star we both qualify.

If we lose to PSG pretty sure we qualify if we beat Napoli at home by more then 1 goal.

Tonight’s result isn’t ideal but it is still in our hands, keep the faith.

Tonight was poor but red star were well up for it, they deserved the win but I have no doubt we are capable of beating PSG on their patch. They need to win and it is going to be a very exciting game.

3.) 06 Nov 2018 23:46:45
Just saw that, KBL. Thanks.



05 Nov 2018 18:27:17
Hi Reds,

Just saw a stat. With the Start we (and Chelsea) have made this season, both teams would be top of the PL in 98 of the last 100 league campaigns. I was flabbergasted. This just goes to show us the MAMMOTH task we have on our hands, to depose City of the title as well as showing how great City were last season raise the bar this high. So let us keep that in mind as the season goes along. This is not your grand father's league campaign anymore. Peace and Love!


1.) 05 Nov 2018 19:32:44
I expect them to have a wobble. Someone like Barcelona will spank them in the Champions League and it'll knock them off for a few draws and losses. It's inevitable that somewhere they'll have a dip, it's just weather us or Chelsea are right behind them to capitalise on it, or we've both fallen too far behind a great team.

2.) 05 Nov 2018 22:04:54
LFC8, I totally agree with you. City will not be winning all their games this season, that much we know and if they do, then they deserve to win the PL hands down. It will be up to us to capitalize on their stumbles whenever it arrives. Hopefully, starting this weekend vs Utd.

3.) 05 Nov 2018 23:19:52
Agreed guys. Don’t forget City have been at this level for over a season now they will definitely have a dip at some point. Plus they really want the CL so if they do go deep into it they’ll take their eye off the league just as we did last season.

4.) 05 Nov 2018 23:22:39
I can say without doubt I have never supported utd but I think I will be this weekend. Other than that I would hope the 2 of them loose.

5.) 06 Nov 2018 01:42:28
I don't think City will have a dip at all.
Pep is a perfectionist and he has cultivated that team with ready made replacements for each position, which are also very good players, in case if any injury or loss of form.

This idea that it is not okay to loose a game or wven have a bad game, regardless if the opposition is better or not.
This is a mentality instilled by managers like Jose and Pep.
However I get the impression Klopp thinks it is okay to loose to a better team because they were better.

Whereas Pep and Jose - they do not belive in this concept. This is why they are happy to drop star players or sub them even if they do not play well in 1 game.

{Ed001's Note - every team has a dip and Pep's teams have traditionally hit a wall of bad form every single season. It is simply impossible to play well each week. The problem last season was that the opponents never even tried to attack them when they were having off days. Seems everyone is of the same ludicrous opinion you are, regarding Pep and Jose. Utter nonsense, even Pep's own words when we beat them last season should have told you that he was quite happy to accept defeat against us and his words about us this season, that he accepts he can't take us head on and beat us.

The cult of Pep is growing and you are another of the converts that falls for the hype.}

6.) 06 Nov 2018 07:10:32
'The problem last season was that the opponents never even tried to attack them when they were having off days. '

Very true that Ed and they had plenty of off days last season. People talk at times like they're untouchable, they aren't. Like you say if they were attacked more last season it'd of been a different story because at the back they can't handle it.

{Ed001's Note - Pep's teams have always struggled against teams that attack them. If Everton had not got a lead and sat back, they would have beaten them.}

7.) 06 Nov 2018 09:01:48
I agree Ed. Pep has to have credit for being a fantastic manager and he’s answered his critics from his first season at City emphatically. They are a juggernaut that will be hard to stop.
Fact is though no team in the history of football has maintained the level City are at for more than a season. They have to have a drop off at some point. They might still win the league anyway.
On a side note this idea that Pep is the attacking messiah is ludicrous. I was at the city game this season and if Jose has done what Pep did that day he would’ve been slaughtered. It was definitely anti-football.

8.) 06 Nov 2018 10:53:37
Agreed Ed and as would many of other teams last season. Too many teams are afraid of attacking them so they seem to sit back too much. All I want to see is more teams going for it against them instead of just trying not to concede! Try and bloody score because against them if you try you will. In my opinion we have a better defence and a much better keeper then them, we can handle teams attacking us, they can't.

9.) 06 Nov 2018 22:05:43
Spot on, Ed. People also forgot that City won at least 4 games with the near final kick of the game, which proves that they are not infallible and can have off days. This just shows that Ed is correct that Pep's teams often hit a wall during the season esp. cos he does not rotate. If teams only got after them more, they would crumble. Pep was complaining last season after they drew at Burnley, of not having enuff players in his squad. The irony was deafening on this point.

Like the Ed, I ain't drinking the Pep Koolaid either as he himself does not believe in his own philosophy when he goes against the ONLY manager that has the guts to attack him and in the process, hand him his arse on a plate majority of the time. Pep literally admitted to being able to cope with Klopp's teams and did a Tony Pulis (by his own standards) and parked the bus at Anfield.

The media ate that stuff up, saying how he was "cautious" as they always do to protect their messiah. No, he was not. He played not to get beat, something he himself said he would NEVER do. Eto'o and Ibra were right. Pep is a hypocrite. Our job now is to make sure we capitalize whenever they fumble cos they will with Pep in charge.

Spot on, Ed02. I am not impressed with him either esp. with the fact that Lovren is the better CB and he would not partner Lovs over VVD either as VVD is clearly light years away from him as well. Makes ZERO sense to me as well.

Meyer is not good enough for us anymore. He would not get in ahead of Fab, Naby and Hendo anyway and for a squad player, we already have Gini, Milner and Lallana.

Vida is is decent defender and nothing more. Lovren made him look very good at the WC cos well, he can't pass out the back, lacks pace and is quite clumsy. Lovren was the one passing out the back and bringing the ball out towards midfield, something Vida never did (maybe he can't or was asked no to, I don't know) BUT he ain't nothing more than a flavor of the WC, something that will die down with time.

With Frankly, on this one. Pope is decent BUT plays in a defensive system and he is not asked to do all the things Karius is asked and CAN do as in play out the back, play the high line, sweep up, be proactive with the ball. We have no clue if Pope can do that cos he has not done that at Burnley cos he is not required to do that. IMO, if you cannot get a GK like Allisson who will sort the position out for the long term, might as well stick with Karius. The Pope' and Butlands of this world, are nothing but bandaids personally, I am not interested in.

Gibbs, it is not nonsense. What Corkycat is saying is correct based on the guidelines of the French Stock Exchange as well as the date the TW opens in France which is today, I gather.

Spot on, ArRy1969. Their squad is poor and always has been and he has made it worse by buying dross player or good players like Bailly and turning them into dross players. Their fans keep deluding themselves that they have world class players. I mean, can anyone name me one Utd player who would start a game for LFC? DDG would not even start ahead of Allison cos he has been under par of late having to carry the whole club on his back for the last 5 years.

18 Dec 2018 19:05:32
OP, I feel what you are saying BUT really, was that ever in doubt based on the dross we saw from them? I mean, Cardiff and Fulham put up a stronger fight than that lot so the credit we got was one where it was like getting credit for beating Burnley or Cardiff cos really, that is what it looked like.

As for Mou's sacking, Sir Bobby Charlton knew what he was saying when he said Utd should never have hired him. He is poison, plain and simple. Utd needed a guy who could win right now and they got some short term success (and screw the rest) if you call winning "losers' trophies" (his words, not mine) after spending over 400m success and got what they paid for. As for the team and squad they are dire, plain and simple.

People say "why can't Utd play like LFC"? Is that a joke? Have you seen their players? Have you seen the manager they have and the stoneage tactics he deploys? They don't play like us cos they simply, can't, end of story. They may have sacked Mou BUT the issues they have go way beyond him and their misery has only begun, IMO.

Ed and ArAy, don't get me wrong. I have no vindictive bone in my body and I'm sure both guys wold kiss and make up pretty soon. The reason My post was directed to the synchophants. I have had it up to my eyeballs with these people spouting abject nonsense about how Buvac should have stayed or how Klopp should have listened to him cos Klopp chose a diff. way of playing, one which tho not perfect, was generating results.

It was the same with Sahko. Klopp showed him the door cos he was a right bellend BUT cos we were not good defensively, fans jumped on Klopp's back, saying he is ruining the team cos he's too stubborn or too vindictive for not welcoming Sahko back. It is this type of nonsense that does my head in. Fans who can't think any further than the tip of their noses. I can guarantee that they did not say this cos they cared about Buvac really. IMO, they just used it as a stick to beat Kloppo which, which is cowardly, really.

All in all, Buvac does deserve credit for where we are right now and I wish him all the best in anything he undertakes. I just feel his new-found fanboys would stop putting him on a pedestal that even he himself, would never accept as he is a true, humble gentleman.


{Ed0333's Note - I hear ya mate and respect and appreciate your sentiments. For me grudges and feuds are petty as there’s far more important things in life than ego like health and humanity. It’s a shame Buvac and Klopp have a soured relationship as they’ve clearly experienced some joyous and wondrous times together and supported each other through the doldrums. I’m not sure anyone can say Buvac’ departure has had a negative effect on us as were top of the league and through to the last 16 of the European Cup (I’m old school still have a hard time calling it it’s new name). Maybe we needed a fresh perspective to become the force we are today?
