Hearing the club will not submit new plans for the Anfield Road end expansion until 2020, with a capacity of only 60,000 ( an additional 6,000 seats )

Yes there are restrictions with infrastructure and the housing around the ground, I still feel this is really disappointing.

We have a season ticket waiting list of over 25,000 and each Match day I always see dozens of fans waiting at the ticket office ( behind the kop ) only to be told games are a sell out.

We are one of the biggest clubs in the world but can't facilitate demand.

Drogie

Well it sounds like the 60,000 capacity is there for a reason and you are just looking for something to complain about. Unless you think the club should build a bigger ground somewhere else?

{Ed002's Note - This is old news and all options are being considered.}


2.) 09 Oct 2019 19:14:27
Complain? Are you for real?

I have a season ticket pal, I just feel sorry for all of you on here that can’t get tickets.


3.) 09 Oct 2019 19:25:04
Stadium size is not the only way to show you're a world class team. Don't forget that there's a human and environmental cost to these expansions as have been previously explained. So, unless you're looking for a brand new, shiny Maracana-sized stadium to underline our status, you should just wait to see what happens.

{Ed047's Note - believe it or not Arsenal have over 60,000 on the waiting list for a season ticket.


4.) 09 Oct 2019 19:44:03
I didn’t say it was, it was about being able to eat into the season ticket waiting list.


5.) 09 Oct 2019 20:06:31
ed002 the club has not said anything new have they after they said they was letting the old planning permission to run out. What was for over 4000 can't see them spending the extra money in new plans to add under 2000 seats. As for the infrastructure is there not talks ongoing about some old rail stations being reopened nearer the ground.

{Ed002's Note - There was an interview with The AP where it was explained that all options are open.}


6.) 10 Oct 2019 00:15:59
Ed 02
Sorry. I am in the states. Can you explain what those options are please?

{Ed002's Note - The owners have made it clear that any and all options are available for consideration. They have not renewed the planning permission because it made no financial sense - it took them a long tie to figure that out.}


8.) 10 Oct 2019 17:14:36
Would that include a new stadium ed02?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, all options.}


9.) 10 Oct 2019 19:31:15
My understanding is it doesn't include a new stadium. The main issue being considered is redeveloping the Anfield Road end and the Kenny Daglish stand. This will take the capacity to 70,000. The Dalish stand would be very much like the main stand in size.


10.) 10 Oct 2019 20:14:35
Would it be fair to say the redevelopment of the main stand, was a mistake and going ahead with plans to build a new stadium away from Anfield, would have made better financial sense, in the long term?

Thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - No. The cost of building a new stadium would be very significant - Spurs have spent something close to £1B and have been plunged in to debt. The income from an extra 6,000 to 10,000 season tickets is zip in the big scheme of things.}


11.) 11 Oct 2019 12:55:48
don't think most fans would want a new stadium but the redevelopment of Anfield road end and Sir Kenny Dalglish stand would be great. The big issue there would be the houses behind the SKD stand, the club would need to probably buy 3 full streets. That will come with a lot of trouble with people not wanting to sell up and then it will come to compulsory purchase order what all ways leaves a bitter taste. I would expect the club to win that fight though.

{Ed002's Note - The club cannot have a compulsory purchase order and already know what the limitations are at Anfield. The club are already less than popular with the locals and are not doing what was planned as it makes zero sense financially - as has been explained year in year out.}


12.) 11 Oct 2019 14:18:35
ED002 did they not get one for the main stand . And if they was to do the skd stand there is no way that could not be done without at least 3 streets being knocked down. I don’t know why they could not to get compulsory purchase order.

{Ed002's Note - That is not what the existing planning permission states. Liverpool cannot get a CPO - that would need to be the local authorities.}


13.) 11 Oct 2019 19:48:52
The redevelopment of the ground has been completed so far as very much part of a wider community regeneration plan, with the City Council as a key enabler and partner. I’d expect the Anfield Road End to get rebuilt, with additional corporate facilities probably, taking the capacity to somewhere between 60 - 65,000.
After that, any further development becomes difficult and, ironically, a regenerated community may be the very thing that prevents any further ground expansion.


14.) 11 Oct 2019 16:54:50
yes I know the local authorities have to get it ed but if they put in planning for the SKD stand and it got granted, that is the only way they would get all the houses, And then I do believe it would go that way not that I like CPO. have seen people near me have there house taken from them with CPO'S I think if they are used the owners should get more than the value of the house rather than less. And with the money in clubs now with what they pay players for one weeks wages over paying for the house near by would be go good way to go about it. I would guess the house at the back of the ground would be about the £100k mark giving an extra 25% would not be a great deal to the clubs but I would mean a lot to the home owners ed. I think in the 4 streets there is about 80 houses so about £8m for all the house an extra £2m on top with what they are paying to get the ground up to 70k with what an 70k stadium would cost to build.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry I am losing track - you say you know it would be the authorities but previously said it would be the club. Nobody has suggested three roads will go. The club has already pissed off and lied about their involvement with the local residents. The club suffers from being arrogant, uncaring and showing no respect to other clubs or individuals - perhaps they will look to force more people from their homes.}


15.) 11 Oct 2019 22:33:51
sorry ed about the 3 roads I meant 4 rows of house for it to have the same height as the main stand would need that for light not to be an issue. And as for the CPO the club would need the planning from local authorities and wants they have that if they get it then it will end up going the CPO route what the club will know will probably have to go that way to get all the houses need for the build. But as most of the time nowadays ed its the money that talks. Like I said before ed if the club wants that stand doing I do think paying over the odds for the houses would be the best way for the club to deal with the issue not that I have heard of any talk of the Sir Kenny Dalglish stand being done I was just pointing out that I see the being a bit off if it ever happens.

{Ed002's Note - You seem to have little or no understanding of the plans that exist nor how the locals are already miffed with the club. You think Liverpool could bribe the council to get CPOs to make more locals homeless then you should be sharing those with the Echo and local community. Don’t worry, they are inner city folks who have little money and could probably be forced out by the club.}


16.) 11 Oct 2019 22:50:42
am not saying anything about the club Bribing the council am just saying that the normal folk normally get the S*** end off the stick. And as I understand it now there is no plans as they ran out. and it was the local authorities that said they was going to use CPO to get the last of the houses for the main stand.


17.) 14 Oct 2019 12:02:10
Am I right in thinking that any stadium with a capacity over 60,000 needs the correct infrastructure, i.e. a train line which is situated close to the ground. Getting to Anfield is not the easiest as its right in the middle of terraced streets. Even with the clearing of houses by the main stand, its still a nightmare to get in and out of. They have buses from the city centre taking fans. An extra 6,000 seats would add some income, but compared with the cost its not worth it? When the main stand was re developed, they change the entire corporate structure, which brings in far more money, as well as redevelopment of the area around the ground.


18.) 14 Oct 2019 12:22:02
Kirkdale station is pretty close.


 

 

16 Sep 2019 19:36:17
Robbo has knock and didn't train today.

If there's any doubts whatsoever over his fitness I'd rather not see him feature tomorrow night

Chelsea away is much more important imo.

Drogie

1.) 17 Sep 2019 09:34:50
I think the days we put short term gain over long term goals a gone drogie or I hope so any way mate.


2.) 17 Sep 2019 15:40:29
I'd happily take a 3-0 loss and everyone leaving Naples fit and healthy in exchange for guaranteed 3 points this weekend.

We have bigger fish to fry this season than the Champions League.


3.) 17 Sep 2019 15:52:41
Champions League is our best bet for silverwhere. Klopp don't take league cup and FA cup to serious and no chance to win the league.


4.) 17 Sep 2019 16:04:43
I don't know why we need a loss tonight I would love a win tonight sets up the champions league great for us qualify from the group as soon as possible makes resting players later on easier. But is still want a win sunday think its a massive week for us could make getting through the groups stages a lot less stressful not like last season when it went to the end.


5.) 17 Sep 2019 17:52:11
We need to win to keep momentum grino but I just think if robbo has a niggle not worth risking him when a rest now could stop a potential stint on the sidelines.


6.) 17 Sep 2019 18:52:50
That's negative even for Walter, 2 of cities 3 CBs are injured and even with their massive squad depth you would think that would be a tough situation to come through without dropping points. I think we have every chance this season.


7.) 18 Sep 2019 09:31:05
Den82 agreed they have Thier problems but they will be just behind or just in front by January. Once January comes they will buy who they need to win the league.


8.) 19 Sep 2019 03:07:41
I hope they are in front so we can chase them down the 4 times we have been in front at Xmas hasn't exactly been great for us at the end of the season let's try reeling them in might be more successful that way for us to be at the top at Xmas and not win the league once is painful seeing that stat every year just with another year added every time it happens I don't know if I can take another season where we are top at Xmas and not win the league in May.

Evening Ed001.

First of all, what a result today!

Away from the match, just want to pick up on the discussion regarding Clyne. You were spot on regarding him not being injured. Mate of mine who I sit next to at the match, knows a bloke who works with the phsyio team. He was saying that Clyne was caught smoking marijuana and partying whilst away in Ghana and the club actually spoke to the FA regarding this and the only reason he played against United was because of the lack of cover at RB.

He was also saying how worried the club was regarding Brewster's injury, especially when the leg was infected, hampering his comeback.

Brewster is very very highly rated at the club and have said that before his injury, was ahead of Owen ( at the same age ) in terms of terms of ability.

Good to see him back and scoring with the 23's along with the Ox and Gomez. I think the club will resist bringing them back early and wait until next season.

Drogie

1.) 14 Apr 2019 21:29:46
If Brewster is ahead of Owen ability wise at that age i'll be a very very happy man because in todays market that's a £150 million player.


2.) 14 Apr 2019 21:34:15
Ahh he was stoned the whole time, explains his performances over the last few years.


3.) 14 Apr 2019 22:27:05
Second hand tittle tattle Drogie, which may or may not be right.
You shouldn’t have posted that imo.


4.) 14 Apr 2019 23:23:00
Second hand title tattle? And what make you so sure mate?


5.) 14 Apr 2019 23:51:58
It's a rumour site. so why not post a rumour?


6.) 15 Apr 2019 00:56:26
I know it's a rumour page but I'm a relative of Clyne please don't slander his name by bringing drugs into it he injured his back playing how shall I say extra curricular activities lol 1000% fact but don't drag he's name through dirt he loves the club and the badge he played for just know that

Cheers
Guys.


7.) 15 Apr 2019 00:58:36
Surely everything is second hand here, everyone’s heard it from someone.


8.) 15 Apr 2019 01:48:40
Drogie - are you tslking about the period of his (Clyne) so called back injury?

If so I heard the same thing at the time. In fact I remember a rumor of that kind was flying around on social media, but never paid much attention to it.


9.) 15 Apr 2019 06:42:40
You probably shouldn’t post something that could destroy a man’s career unless you have actual proof.

{Ed001's Note - it wouldn't destroy his career. It is not seen as career-defining, let alone destroying. Numerous players each season get caught with marijuana in their systems. It was not marijuana that caused Clyne to be dropped, it was his lifestyle. The guy may claim to care about Liverpool or football in general, but the only thing he gives a toss about is living the high life.}


10.) 15 Apr 2019 07:40:20
Those of you that read my posts will know that I never post a rumour, in fact it’s probbly my first!

I was given the info by a good friend of mine that I sit next to at the match, I’m not one for spreading cr*p.

Sorry if I’ve offended anyone, but the club are finished with Clyne.


11.) 15 Apr 2019 19:22:28
Ed01 already addressed the Clyne issue months when many moaned as to why he was not being picked. Ed01 said at the time that he was "not living the lifestyle of a professional footballer" and if anything the OP posted is true then that was what Ed01 may have been referring to.

IMO and regardless of his alleged lifestyle, he is light years behind Trent, Milner and even Hendo at RB and for me, Klopp did the right thing by getting shot of him cos he was no good enuff. Now if you add his "lifestyle" to the equation then it was a no-brainer.

{Ed001's Note - I have already posted in this thread that it was not about a drugs test. It was his party lifestyle. He acts like one of those spoilt rich kids who have too much money and never had to earn it as they were born with a silver spoon in their mouths. Klopp wants professionals who train hard and not turn up to training after snatching 20 minutes kip following a night out partying.}


12.) 16 Apr 2019 12:42:38
With you all the way on that one, Ed. Regardless of his issues (of which there are many, clearly) he is a dreadful player and I'm thankful he is no longer here and we will get rid come this summer.

{Ed001's Note - the sad thing is that he was a dreadful player because of his own attitude. He had the ability to be more than good enough.}


13.) 17 Apr 2019 23:25:06
Clyne will always be an important footnote in Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnolds careers.


 

 

02 Mar 2019 22:35:09
Echo is reporting the Ox is expected to feature for the under-23s over the coming week.

Drogie

1.) 03 Mar 2019 00:01:28
yes, read that, great news, and he is really liked by all the staff, players and fans, so its a huge lift,
I have a good feeling about this return from injury,
he is really good for the club .


2.) 03 Mar 2019 04:19:05
Could be extremely helpful to inject some energy into midfield as we go into the final run-in.


3.) 03 Mar 2019 05:56:46
He’s built like a horse that lad.


4.) 03 Mar 2019 11:22:57
I think it's important we don't place too many expectations on him for this season at least. Coming back from a horrible injury often has many set backs. I would expect him to suffer little niggles and strains a lot as he's trying to get back to full fitness.

Next season I'm sure he will be back to his best.


5.) 03 Mar 2019 14:37:50
Surely if you’re gunna say that, he’s built like an ox?


6.) 04 Mar 2019 07:58:45
He’d better be careful then. another leg injury and they might shoot him.

{Ed025's Note - nice one marshy..


7.) 04 Mar 2019 16:14:46
If anyone in the team were built like a horse shouldn't it be Mane?

{Ed025's Note - love it 67..


 

 

14 Jan 2019 07:49:02
Morning Ed002.

Was thinking, if Salah and his representatives are / have been attempting to engineer a move away, are the owners and those running the club not aware of this? Surely they must be, I'd be astonished if they weren't

If so, are they making provisions to replace him in the Summer? One can say the summer is a long way off but replacing someone like Salah will require some work. As we all know if a player wants to leave and there is an opportunity they will.

Cheers.

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Salah doing anything specific, and his representative can speak to whomever they wish - it is no different from another players agent talking with Liverpool, Arsenal or anything else. I am not aware of any club looking to buy Salah in the summer at this time - it was seemingly a begging activity which would see Salah's future opportunities removed if Real Madrid were to buy the forwards they are looking at. Right now, I would not worry too much.}


1.) 14 Jan 2019 08:17:25
Thanks Ed002.


2.) 14 Jan 2019 11:48:17
Seriously Edd 002, an extremely well balanced answer, to a much too frequently and unoriganal question.

{Ed002's Note - It is simply the situation as I understand it right now.}


3.) 14 Jan 2019 18:53:32
Hey Dorgie, how did you manage to get 3 thumbs down for saying Thank You!

Gosh there are some lemons on here.


4.) 14 Jan 2019 19:31:31
If we analyse the way a thank you is delivered, we can start to ascertain why people may deliver a 'thumbs down'.

In years gone by, it was accepted that a nod, a tip of ones bowler hat or, as people expressed themselves more liberally, even a wink would be enough to acknowledge appreciation.

As times passed, expressing gratitude, evolved into a verbal exchange using the words 'thank you', which became shortened to 'thanks' or 'cheers'.

However, in this digital age, things developed further, with people going all out in expressing their appreciation. Phrases like 'Totes amazing', or wholly over the top comments meant that simply 'thanks' was of a bygone age.

So there we have it, I suspect the thumbs down was a result of vegan millenials passing by on their digital device and not recognising this more traditional way of expressing gratitude.

If you have read this far, then you a totes amazing and a far more superior being than me. I hereby tip my hat to you. Thanks.

That should have covered everything and everyone there.

Evening Ed001.

Klopp hinting that Alisson will be fit and available to start against those lot on Sunday.

Would you stick with Adrian, he's done pretty well? It's a massive game with Alisson no featuring all season.

Drogie

{Ed001's Note - Adrian has done well but Alisson is the best there is, so you have to put him back in.}


1.) 14 Oct 2019 17:22:50
Good to hear Ed001, although Adrian has done well. Do you no if Matip and Salah should be ok to play?

{Ed001's Note - I believe both should be ok.}


2.) 14 Oct 2019 20:47:21
Cheers mate great news. Although I hate playing Utd at OT they always up there game against us and I have a horrid feeling in the pit of my stomach about the result.

Mr negative. I no, I hear ya.

{Ed001's Note - the worse they are, the better they tend to do against us. So I am worried too as they are the worst I can ever remember right now!}


3.) 14 Oct 2019 22:00:53
Think we have only won 2 of our last 16 visits to OT. Just shows how hard we find going there. I am really looking forward to it and hope our big players remember to turn up this year.


4.) 14 Oct 2019 22:57:20
I understand ED001, I've seen my fair share of bad results there, even when our performance has been decent. This feels different though. We've won games this season not playing particularly well and probably haven't put in a full 90 minutes yet. They are in a fair state. It's not just that their top players aren't playing well, it's that they have so few top players. Add to that OGS' performances and I think we'll stroll it tbh.


5.) 15 Oct 2019 01:29:24
We did spank them when they were down and out under Moyes. Let’s have faith in the boys and hope they turn up big time and play with intensity and the quality will show. Be complacent and we’ll be in for a shock.


6.) 15 Oct 2019 06:15:33
We'll smash them, mark my words, they have nothing on us. I aren't worried about the game one bit.


7.) 15 Oct 2019 08:44:18
Our mindset is so different this year. In previous years we were happy with a point, this year its win, win, win, and we don't care how. Mane to play a blinder andallison to breed confidence into our back four.


8.) 15 Oct 2019 09:35:36
Its United's cup final. They will be up for it big time.


9.) 15 Oct 2019 09:40:14
Am sure you said the same last year Salah as did most posters. The only thing I am confident about is that we will manage a shot, which is more than we managed there last season. I am looking to see which of our players go there and stamp their better quality on the game. Who really wants it? last year none of our players wanted it as much as the Man U players, we were out fought.


10.) 15 Oct 2019 10:08:40
Our match at OT was quite amazing last season, you had Pogba and Sanchez sprinting - sprinting, not ambling - around like their lives depended on it.
Which just goes to show that it’s not a gimme by any means.


11.) 15 Oct 2019 10:35:41
Agreed Juicer. It is Man U's champions league final. We have to start well from the first minute, match them for effort and stamp our superior quality on the game. We didn't do any of those things last year.

I would make them watch last years match because some of it was actually embarassing. We got out run and out fought by the worst Man U midfield in their history.


12.) 15 Oct 2019 11:32:56
We said the same about Napoli away.


13.) 15 Oct 2019 12:47:16
I don't think you can compare current united team with Napoli . The Italians are better with good manager .
The word mindset mentioned a bit and I think its totally true. This season we have a winning mentality cross the whole team and squad, and I think it will carry on ; while on the other hand , they lacking in confidence and they don't have leaders on or off the pitch to left them up . If we start as we usually do with speed and determination, I really think they'll crumble . I am not saying will score loads, maybe . but the potential is there.


14.) 15 Oct 2019 16:51:08
We have traditionally struggled against mid table teams so it could be tough.


15.) 15 Oct 2019 17:29:19
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I have not seen LFC be, and play with, the confidence we currently have. I certainly have not seen it in the Premier League era. Have we been in the Champions League final and in the top two for two consecutive years before?

I don't think it will be a blowout, but we will win. We like to do things the difficult way, at times. 😉.


16.) 15 Oct 2019 20:01:32
It's going to be a tough game lads, regardless of how well we are doing. Remember, some whierd stuff happens at OT.


 

 

21 Sep 2019 09:24:24
Chelsea away.

Not sure what to make about this one. Always a tough fixture away at Stamford Bridge but surely we have enough to go one better than last season?

One thing is for sure, we need to be more clinical and sharper in the final third than we were against Napoli.

Drogie

1.) 21 Sep 2019 12:18:42
if we can come away with a draw, i'll be happy.


2.) 21 Sep 2019 12:29:15
We will win. Just coz they beat wolves. So what.

Loved lawros comment on vvds rare mistake against napoli. "like ashtrays on a pushbike" brilliant. Classic lawro.


3.) 21 Sep 2019 13:31:36
We'll batter them.


4.) 21 Sep 2019 14:48:49
Tough game to predict this one. It's one of the games we drew last season so it would be great if we won.


5.) 21 Sep 2019 16:48:16
It will be very tight with only a goal in it in my opinion, saying we'll batter them seems daft when they are also playing very well and are at home. I'd take a draw, but be delighted with 3 points.


6.) 21 Sep 2019 18:28:33
Depends if Kante plays for me. The guys immense and leave a massive hole when he's out.


7.) 21 Sep 2019 19:57:56
They may score but our front 3 always get themselves psyched up for the big games. So we'll score more. And their defense still needs a lot of work. David Luis is always only one mistake away from letting in a silly one. I'm convinced the boys want to send a message out in the League that Napoli was a one-off blip, that everyone should forget about. I think we will leave with the 3 points.

{Ed001's Note - Luiz is at Arsenal now.}

Right Ed. Thanks for the correction. i've even seen him play against us for Arsenal. Don't know what I was thinking. Copious liquid refreshments on a late Saturday night are undoubtedly helping.

{Ed001's Note - old age mate. We all suffer from it eventually.}

I am sure the boys will give it all they can and I am there will be no lack of efforts. But it's one of these games where we may drop points and if we do, it won't be the end of the world.


10.) 21 Sep 2019 23:15:16
Of all the top 6 away games, i think we'll come through this one with the best result. This isn't the Chelsea team of old, full of wise old heads needed in a game like this, i think we'll win comfortably.


11.) 22 Sep 2019 09:20:38
ArAy echo those thoughts mate. Luis is always likely to make a mistake and let’s hope Drogba and Shevechenko don’t have their shooting boots on today. Beasant won’t keep a clean sheet for them and Dennis Wise is always likely to see red 😉.

{Ed025's Note - love it JK..


12.) 21 Sep 2019 23:16:34
Sorry Ed001, but that kind of excuse can only be attributed to Ed025, LOL. He is clearly older than the club he supports and he can't hide it. 😂.

{Ed001's Note - don't be sorry, it just means you have no excuse.}


13.) 22 Sep 2019 10:43:28
Without wanting to seem arrogant I also feel this Chelsea side are set up in a way that will struggle to match us, they're conceding a lot of goals, (I think the 2nd most behind Watford only) . Dropped points in every game at Stamford bridge so far and injury doubts with the likes of kante, rudiger, Emerson, mount might be a problem for them.

I don't see Abraham having as much joy as he's got off other poor defenses and hazard was always the guy who gave us big problems against Chelsea in the past. Our front 3 are flying with confidence while chelseas Back line is vulnerable. I can see us getting a few goals realistically so if we can stay solid at the back we should be hoping for 3 points.

Morning ed001, watch the match?

Thought we were wasteful in the final third, slopping passing and wrong decision making at times. Yes we were undone by a poor refereeing decision but we were to blame for not winning.

We were in control at times and really should have put the game to bed. I know it's not the end of the world but we should have won last night - we move on, it happens, it's just disappointing.

I've noticed teams are getting joy down our right side with Trent, at times, leaving lots of space for attackers to work with.

By the way, Kalidou Koulibaly is immense.

Drogie

{Ed001's Note - yeah it was purely down to us that we didn't win. I disagree on Koulibaly, we made him look better than he is. Positionally he is getting caught out and throwing himself into last-ditch tackles constantly, instead of being in the right place to cut out the pass. I failed to see a problem with Trent at all in that game. Our problems were purely down to us being wasteful and giving the ball away.}


1.) 18 Sep 2019 10:33:16
ed001,

do you think the pitch was a major issue in why we kept giving the ball away and overhitting nearlly everything hhaha. mane and firmino literally hit the ball so hard to pass to each other which hasn't happened at all in the prem. our worst performance last season was napoli away that i can remember, which i don't think is any coincidence i think the pitch is terrible in and around both areas. This years was much better and if it is our worst ill be very pleased as we only got outdone by a dodgy pen.

{Ed001's Note - it certainly didn't help and you have to wonder how a virtually unused pitch can be in such a state and still allowable in the Champions League? They have been playing league games away from home, so the pitch should have been in prime condition.

Having said that, the players should be good enough to deal with it.}


2.) 18 Sep 2019 10:41:34
Fully agree on Koulibaly, Ed. He looks like an absolute soldier when he is given an opportunity to make a tackle, but we shouldn’t forget that Lacazette and Aubameyang (Arsenal, of all teams! ) danced around him only a few months ago.
We were completely wasteful yesterday. There’s something about Napoli’s pitch which is unsettling, and the stadium looks like it is the last stop before you reach hell.


3.) 18 Sep 2019 11:08:24
I watched Napoli vs Juventus, and had to rub my eyes several times as Higuain tore Koulibaly a new one in that game. Koulibaly is great but no messiah the way he is being touted as.

{Ed001's Note - he is not great. He is a Sol Campbell type. Fast and strong but positionally awful. If you give him time to get back at you then he looks great as he dives in making a last-ditch tackle for the cameras. But overall he should not have been caught out in the first place and it costs them. It is why he has as many games where he is shocking as he does where he is great. If we had forwards just hit it early, then he is in trouble, but we try to play through them and that gives him a chance.}


4.) 18 Sep 2019 11:20:01
He gave us the ball time after time. Salah sat him down again, I don't think he had a great game at all, just Bobby Mane and Mo we're utter rubbish.


5.) 18 Sep 2019 13:13:14
Im sorry but im uncomfortable with my centre back throwing himself in every single tackle. i mean does anyone remember him standing while tackling? and that too all over the defense. brr.


6.) 18 Sep 2019 14:08:42
Most on here really need to learn to be gracious in defeat . Sometimes you need to just put your hands up and say the opposition did better . Yesterday Napoli defended well, midfield, defence and keeper, our strikers were n't "utter rubbish", they were restricted, they could've done this, that and the other but hindsight is great thing and what is even better being a couch manager/ footballer .
I posted yesterday before the game that we most probably loose and that won't be the end of the world, 5 more games to go in the group.


7.) 18 Sep 2019 16:10:15
Firmino missed a sitter, Mane and Salah were 2 on 1 and messed it up because of Mane smashing it across when he was stood next to him. Salah was swiping at everything missing the ball, his touch was awful. Restricted? No just a really bad day at the office.


8.) 18 Sep 2019 17:28:13
Totally agree with you on Koulibaly Ed001.
He flings himself into last ditched tackles almost recklessly, he’s going to seriously injure someone and / or himself at some point.

{Ed001's Note - it is hugely risky.}


9.) 18 Sep 2019 17:52:33
Ed001 on the money again, all the news about Koulibaly being "immense" but no mention of Salah leaving him sitting on his ass like he did last year. Get them back to Anfield and watch the sparks fly and totally different headlines.


 

 

17 Sep 2019 17:12:56
Hope we get the job done tonight, I know Klopp would be happy with a draw but if we could secure qualification early and top the group, we could give some of the fringe players game time - likes of Brewster etc.

Drogie

1.) 17 Sep 2019 18:50:19
Would be nice but we should never under estimate this competition.

Every game is hard.


2.) 17 Sep 2019 18:56:29
We're playing with a midfield of Hendo, Milner and Fabinho. Robertson is okay and the usual suspects in all the usual positions. Good solid hard working team.


 

 

17 Sep 2019 17:04:48
Travelling kop advised not to wear colours tonight, stay away from certain areas of Napoli and don't use public transport to the game.

It's just like going away back in the 80's.

Drogie

1.) 17 Sep 2019 17:18:05
yeah if that was happening in England the outrage would not stop yet nothing ever happens to these Italian sides its a disgrace.


2.) 17 Sep 2019 18:54:58
You can't just brand all Italian cities to be like Napoli.

I've been to Napoli and it's absolute mayhem, even when there's no football game on. All of the cars have dents in them; if there's three lanes at a red traffic light, three cars line up and then two more cars try to squeeze into the gaps. Even though everyone is feisty as hell, there is no police presence. It's an absolutely crazy place.

I was there for 3 days and left in complete shock of what I witnessed. Yes, there was a buzz to it, but I could see why it is what it is and the closest Italian city to Sicily and must have so much Mafia influence in it.

I didn’t say it was, it was about being able to eat into the season ticket waiting list.

Rome mate, we got battered by every team away in the group stages last season, can’t get any worse lol.

Napoli look terrible at the back this season, to which we really should be able to exploit.

That’s correct, fan ran on and slipped into Adrián. His ankle is swollen, might make it tomorrow.

United away is always a tough one, we’ve not won there for a few years now. Whilst they’re not firing on all cylinders, this game will be extremely difficult, they will be out to halt our winning run.

Lads, we can’t take them for granted. Last season they had 10 players injured but we still couldn’t break them down. They will do everything they can do to stop us in two weeks.

I expect a tough game.

Seen Elliot a couple of times, including pre season, something about him makes me think he’s going to be a really good player should he apply himself and work hard.

It’s such an inconsistent area, the time wasting by apposing teams at Anfield is unbelievable at times, especially from the keepers yet nothing ever gets done about it, maybe a yellow card gets shown in the dying minutes.
