Is Lovern all but gone Tris?


{Ed001's Note - all but gone? No, he might well leave but nothing has been done yet. No offer has been acceptable so far. Plenty of time yet though.}

1.) 29 Aug 2019 23:54:31
Looks like Roma have got Smalling instead.


2.) 30 Aug 2019 00:39:51
With Roma seemingly looking like they are getting smalling I'm guessing they have ended their interest in lovren?

3.) 30 Aug 2019 06:30:26
Jeez, they must have been desparate, Smalling is an awful footballer.

4.) 30 Aug 2019 17:00:46
I'd suggest Lovren is staying after what Klopp said today i. e. we had four CBs last season and still had to have Fab do it due to injuries and that they will ALL be needed again this season.

5.) 30 Aug 2019 18:55:25
If we want to challenge for all the top honours you need 4 capable CBs over the course of maybe 50/ 60 games. Be a huge risk to let him go, just 1 injury immediately leaves us bare at the back. Lovren is far from perfect but as squad player for backup with his experience there aren't many CBs around with better quality as a 4th choice. 1 more year and then let him choose his next club if he can't hold down a regular spot for us.

This time last year matip was in his position but took his opportunity to claim 1st team spot. Competition is strong in CB and let the young lads have another year of development before we prematurely rely on having to use them.

6.) 30 Aug 2019 20:42:13
I really don't understand all of the negativity about Lovren. I know he's had a few bad games but he's a very good defender.

If we get an injury or two and he gets into the team, I'd put money on him doing a Matip and keeping his place (injuries permitting, of course) .

When he gets his chance, he knows what he needs to do to keep his place. He's seen it with his own eyes.

{Ed025's Note - hmmmm..

7.) 30 Aug 2019 21:35:49
One thing that has been clear is lovren looks much better beside VVD, as does matip and Gomez. Yet matip and lovren are poor together. The key is when they have a leader, someone to organise and talk beside them they look much better. Lovren and matip don't show those qualities.

Like Ferdinand and vidic were such a good pair as they complimented each other's strenghts.

Henchoz looked good with hyypia leading but put henchoz beside matip for example and they would struggle.

You need the right pairing to suit your players strengths. Lovren and matip have had a much better performance level over the last 18 months with virg than anytime previous.

8.) 31 Aug 2019 23:46:28
For once I’m with Ed25 on this. Lovren is not a very good defender. He’s a decent 4th choice but one that you hope you never have to use.

9.) 02 Sep 2019 00:34:12
{Ed025's Note - hmmmm.

why hmmmm, what are you insinuating ed025 . He is a Liverpool player so must be very good . an earlier post put Matip as one of the best CBs in the world, Lovern is not far behind if not even better, world cup and champions league finalist . The red shirt automatically turns you into the best in the world, remember Djimi Traore, a champions league winner.

{Ed025's Note - you sound like redwolf roy, now i know your very tongue in cheek here but matip has done very well to be fair to him mate..



02 Oct 2018 13:57:03
How ya Ed hope your ok mate? Ed002 have you heard any rumbling's transfer wise about Liverpool in January?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing explicitly about January Barry, but I have explained elsewhere that the club has been showing some interest in players.}

1.) 02 Oct 2018 20:04:54
Ok thanks a million Ed👍.



12 Jul 2018 19:46:54
Hello all! I really do believe that we have a squad to be at least in the top 4 every season but for me what we really need is a cup win. Yes I know it's the league we want but a cup win would I believe would really get the ball rolling for us.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 20:05:34
Agree Barry, it's time for us to win a trophy.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 20:12:40
Make you right BIL about winning a cup will give us that winning mentality which we sorely miss.

3.) 12 Jul 2018 20:26:57
Totally agree, we've got to break that ice somewhere along the line.

4.) 12 Jul 2018 20:34:38
Good point but I really think we will win the league this year. After the strides we made last season I think we’ve recruited far better than any other team. I really think city are going to be caught out big time this year. I think there will be far less of a fear factor.

5.) 12 Jul 2018 20:41:42
This is the longest trophy drought I remember,7 seasons a season longer than the last. Any trophy will do me this season. In 13 years we've won 1 trophy for me that's not good enough. I hope we can juggle the squad enough to compete on 4 fronts. That means staying in the cups so that our young players can get a run in the team and be ready when called upon. Towards the end of last season we had Camacho Woodburn and Jones on the bench but I can understand Klopp's reluctance to use them especially after the Chelsea match when every game was a must not lose.

6.) 12 Jul 2018 20:58:45
When we win the league, the flood gates will open methinks.

7.) 12 Jul 2018 21:08:35
It’s fair to say we are hopeful of a win this year. Perhaps silverware is highly possible. But iwe our unrealistic pressures on ourselves by saying we will win this year. The players haven’t set foot on the pitch, transfers aren’t over the line, injuries could happen or hopefully not. I really do think the Premier League has evolved into such an interesting league! We now have a top 6 divide which rests on a knife edge, underdog teams like Leicester possible of winning the league with pure grit and now teams like Wolves who have the potential to re-establish themselves as a force in the league from a lower league. Sadly a lot of this is down to spending power in my opinion but who wins the league each year is not so foreseeable!
Whether we can get silverware or more depends on how we play game to game (obviously) so let’s keep on backing our team for a tasty season of attacking football and hope we’re rewarded at the end of it!

8.) 12 Jul 2018 21:24:11
We have a champions league finalist in our team.

9.) 12 Jul 2018 21:28:28
Plus a World Cup finalist as well. Good DL.

10.) 12 Jul 2018 22:06:54
Spot on aoe, me too mate.

11.) 13 Jul 2018 00:02:14
Agreed. Let's forget the league title and go after the league cup.

Seriously what difference does it make!

12.) 13 Jul 2018 02:20:35
Let's go after every game next season.

13.) 13 Jul 2018 09:40:51
I saw a post from MKS the other day relating to our "success" and nearly responded stating "how have we been successful? we've not won anything since Klopp's arrival! ". then I realized success is "the accomplishment of an aim or purpose".

We aimed to improve our squad - accomplished (and still improving! )

We aimed for top 4 - accomplished in back to back seasons

Now our aim has to be to get that silverware! - I'm aware we have tried and failed on 3 occasions in finals : (

Let make 2018/ 2019 the year for silverware!

14.) 13 Jul 2018 16:32:33
It's going to be a long season with lots of games. It is important to remember we won't win them all. So please do not rip the team / club to shreds when we do loose.

{Ed033's Note - What should Liverpool FC do if there are any loose shreds? :)



19 Mar 2018 12:09:02
What's the chances of Ndidi Ed001?


{Ed001's Note - very slim Leicester are not interested in selling him.}

1.) 19 Mar 2018 15:19:20
I like Ndidi and think he would be a good replacement for Emre. I would still like to see someone of Jorginho's ilk come in as well though. Someone to pull strings from deeper when needed. With Naby Keita arriving too I think those three would be an excellent mix and would allow us to take our time finding someone to replace Phil without getting desperate.

2.) 19 Mar 2018 18:04:33
I would take Ndidi tomorrow as he is very good and LFC fans will have a good chance to assess him as he will be on duty with Nigeria at the WC. Now will LC sell? That is another issue as Ed02 has said.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 21:32:15
I want both Ndidi and Jorginho to join Keita at the club. Yes, that means 3 new first choice mids in one window but Klopp knows very well that the above 3 can help the team dictate play and take our game to the next level.
I'd give the GKs and defenders another season and concentrate on strengthening the midfield for now.

4.) 20 Mar 2018 10:19:49
finding someone to replace phil? he's a good player i get it, but id say that his role has already been replaced by another role.

its not about replacing him anymore next window, its about taking the club to another level.



19 Nov 2017 11:54:47
Morning Ed's and Red's. Can anyone tell me the name of the young CB Ed025 was talking about on the Sharkpod please.


{Ed002's Note - Perr Shuurs.}

1.) 19 Nov 2017 15:54:53
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Barry.}

Tris just read your article on Shanks absolutely brilliant mate. I can't get enough information and stories about. One thing that you said in the article is the club really is all about the manager and that's the way it should be.


{Ed001's Note - cheers Bazza glad you enjoyed.}

1.) 13 Jan 2020 16:56:35
Where can I find this?

{Ed001's Note - Shankly Article

2.) 14 Jan 2020 18:21:55
Cheers Ed, great read, my da has the collection of match of the day decade videos, I remember watching them as a kid and they interviewed Liverpool supporters when shanks retired as the shock and disbelief on their faces, also bastion of invincibility is something that stuck in my head from watching it all those years ago, question. do you see many similarities in his and klopps football Management styles.

{Ed001's Note - yes, I said that before we went for Klopp that I thought he was the closest thing in the modern game to Shanks.}



06 Jan 2020 16:08:12
Have to say lad's what a performance yesterday unbelievable. Everybody has their own stand out player but for me it was Neco Williams. He stood out in the league cup game against Arsenal but he was even better against Everton. If TTA got injured leave Gomez, Milner or who everelse could fill in and stick in young Neco Williams he can well do a job in there no problem.


1.) 06 Jan 2020 16:23:20
Lallana for me. That armband raised his level and led the team.

Gomez second. Outstanding.

The young players did fantastic but senior players still were the best players on show.

The liverpool ones im talking about of course 😀.

2.) 06 Jan 2020 16:57:30
Imagine if we played our first team at Goodison and their under 12s beat us 1-0. If they passed us off the pitch and a scouse blue curled one in off the crossbar from 20 yards over Van Dijks head and passed Allison. Every time Mane touched the ball he put the ball out for a throw in, and Robbo got subbed off after being skinned for an hour off some 16 year old Die hard Blue. Hahaha I would be under a rock and you wouldn't hear from me for a year.

3.) 06 Jan 2020 17:44:55
FC8 Everton must have one hell of an under 12s team 😂.

4.) 06 Jan 2020 18:29:54
1jj, maybe they should have fielded their U-12's last night instead of the pathetic, embarrassing dross that turned up at Anfield to receiving a footballing lesson from a bunch of kids who prolly still had to wait for their dads to come pick them up from the Stadium after the game.

5.) 06 Jan 2020 18:41:06
FC8, a bit of an exaggeration, haha.

I really sympathise with Everton fans after that game. It was an embarrassing performance and result but let's not forget it was a no-win situation for them. If they'd have won, we'd have just dismissed it as we only played the kids.

6.) 06 Jan 2020 19:06:38
EpicPotato, sympathise with Everton fans? I take it you don’t live in the Merseyside area and don’t have to put up with them on an almost daily basis? There are very few good humoured banter merchants like Ed025 left.

7.) 06 Jan 2020 19:51:11
Does the"banter"get nasty WW?

8.) 06 Jan 2020 20:17:46
I loved the old fashioned banter but not the bile that passes between the two sets of supporters now. At the risk of sounding like the dinosaur that I really am, I think that the poison on social media has got a lot to do with it. But whatever the cause, I have experienced the bitterness and just cannot sympathise with Everton supporters when we beat them.

9.) 06 Jan 2020 21:47:45
WW glad you are back on the site.

How did you feel when Man U pissed all over us for 20+ years and they are not even in same city, were you a little bitter? Everton would have won the European cup in the 80's if not banned. I lived in the city but only for a couple years and realise it is not the same now, with a few diffent decisions roles could be reversed.

I was on the Kop when Davey Thompson was our best player, so I take nothing for granted and do sympathise with the blue side.

10.) 06 Jan 2020 22:21:25
I have to agree with WW.

I grew up watching the greet Liverpool and Everton sides of the 80’s, mentioned before, I was at the old Wembley in 86 when we won 3-1, the whole stadium singing Merseyside. And, just because they had a great side under HK, There would be no guarantees they’d have won a European. Up, history tells us this is not always the case, look at us in 2005.

Roll on to the modern era and when I go to goodison away and hear them singing murderers, and we all know what they are singing, sorry mark, no sympathy. You also need to read some of the vile stuff on social media. Did you not hear their “ since 1985 chant on Sunday?

It also has nothing to do with United, we sang about them being poor during the 80’s so it’s horses for courses. Also when you realise and know how they achieved their success, there really is no bitterness.

11.) 06 Jan 2020 22:46:21
you make some points Drogie but what your saying is 100% biased and one sided. There will be 1000's of decent Everton fans with very similar stories to tell about their experienses regarding LFC fans.

I have been sitting with Liverpool fans who refused to recognise a Barnes goal because he was black. One sided arguments are pointless. The gloating fans on here in the last few days I don't agree with one bit, short memories.

12.) 07 Jan 2020 11:11:44
To be fair I think it gets worse as generations go by and honestly sky and showing matches on tv has a lot to do with it my stepson is a bitter manc hates liverpool and says he hates all scoucers and can't give a reason just he was brought up that way (bare in mind half my family are scouse and the other half Norwegian so I'm about as stereotypical liverpool fan as you get) anyways people sit in thier houses shouting and chanting things they would not do in public with young ears listening at a young age it corrupts I wish for the days of healthy banter and a respectful chat between fans but I think them days are long gone and will never return.

13.) 07 Jan 2020 11:16:21
Fair enough drogie but there’s idiots at every club. I was at the united game 2 seasons ago and there was small sections of our fans making aeroplane like movements.

I think it’s more to do with the disgusting crap hole Britain is coming. Took the mrs to ane today and been told there’s a 14 hour wait for a doctor and walk in centres are closed!

Anybody seen the new joker film? Sums up this selfish society we live in. Unfortunately good people are few and far between nowadays.

{Ed025's Note - i hope your wrong with that last bit lerchy..

14.) 07 Jan 2020 13:06:23
Soft touch Britain Ed, forget young offenders institutes. Hard labour camps with regular beatings for these feral beings! Of course you can’t do that though you might upset someone. Ever the optimist.

Hope you’re well Ed for every dark cloud there’s a silver lining mate and maybe you lads needed that game for Carlo to see the pathetic attitude of some of the senior pros! Sigi and schneiderlin were two of the main culprits for me.

{Ed025's Note - yeah they were the worst of a bad buch lerchy mate..

15.) 07 Jan 2020 23:51:04
Mark08, thanks for the welcome back. I stopped posting because I was stupidly getting drawn into pointless, argumentative exchanges with other posters (and occasionally with the Eds) and I was annoyed with myself. I didn’t stop checking the site on a daily basis though and it just felt right to post again.

We will never know whether the Everton team of the mid 1980s was good enough to win the European Cup but a sizeable minority of their fan base believes that they would have done. That has become an article of faith for them and they bitterly blame Liverpool supporters - all of us - for stopping that from happening.

Add in the more recent phenomenon of social media and as Drogie has pointed out a very unpleasant atmosphere has developed at derby matches with some horrible chants and abuse that goes well beyond acceptable banter. So, no sympathy from me.

16.) 08 Jan 2020 06:12:08
They may have missed out on 1 but we missed out on 4.

Lad's does Aldo have a pub in Liverpool?


1.) 27 Dec 2019 13:26:15
He did have a place called Aldo's bar, though I'm not sure if it is still operating. I remember being invited by a friend of Aldo's family to a private wedding reception at the place and The Coral played an acoustic set for the married couple. It was class. The Coral I mean, bar was very non-distinct in my opinion and last I heard (which was many years ago) it had closed down. Correct me if I'm wrong though as I no longer live in the country.

2.) 27 Dec 2019 16:48:02
Think it's long gone that now fella, sure there's a nightclub on the spot where it used to be (but not had proper night out in Liverpool for a few years so could be wrong) .

3.) 27 Dec 2019 17:53:56

Would it be a tad mischievous of me to petition Utd to offer OGS a 10 year contract🤔.

Do it.

2.) 23 Dec 2019 04:24:31
Absolutely not. He thoroughly deserves it. All the Liverpool fans should sign such a petition. 😀.

3.) 23 Dec 2019 06:12:14
That's the only reason why I'am doing it Chaki is that he thoroughly deserves it. Since he has taken over at OT even opposing fan's are really enjoying his style of football. Thank you OGS your a credit to your club😁.

4.) 23 Dec 2019 10:39:24
I know it's Christmas mate but I'm not expecting THAT much this year ;) . Chance would be a fine thing wouldn't it lol.

5.) 23 Dec 2019 09:42:07
Sound like a petition a few years ago when balotelli got player of the year when all the man utd supporters voted for him.

6.) 23 Dec 2019 13:23:40
I fancy ole to build a strong team. They has some very decent players and a world class gk. Many will call pogba World class. Well, we certainly haven't seen it. But I saw him for France when they won the world Cup and he was class. He has the potential to be world class.

I (and am being serious) have felt sorry for ole. Too much, too soon. Hell of a lot of pressure. But I think his signings were decent. Wan bisska, Danny James, Harry maguire.

They need to either get Paul of social media and show him pictures of ballotelli - this could be you. Then shown him Gerrard training regime. They need a better lb, a better cf and a decent cm.

I had a wee look on the utd page yesterday. Every post contradicts itself (we are playing well blah blah but we have an average squad) they're bang average. Dunno how we didn't beat them.

7.) 23 Dec 2019 19:40:01
Send me that petition n I will sign it ASAP, lol.

8.) 23 Dec 2019 22:19:44
think united need another goalie, can't be letting in howlers.

I have to agree with Ed025 only one team I care about and that's Liverpool. Sure When we are about to meet them then yes get the banter going but as soon as the game is over they are consigned to history. Its all about us lad's so enjoy it cause it's been to bloody long YNWA.

Have to agree with Ed001 regarding Sir Bob Paisley. He wouldn't have lost a second of sleep moving a player like Salah on but there would have been a replacement lined up well in advance. I honestly don't have a issue with Salah moving on if he really want's to as Ed002 has always said players are transient they come and go and that's football lad's.
