Hearing we've sold Allan Rodrigues de Souza to Atletico Mineiro for a fee of around £3.2million? Work permit being the stumbling block?

Drogie

1.) 11 Jan 2020 00:37:37
Yes you probably read that in the Liverpool Echo where they said he had been sold for £3.2 million because there were work permit issues.

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

1.) 09 Oct 2019 18:22:48
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

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.


19.) 27 Oct 2019 04:50:54
I get off at sand hills still a fair walk that.


 

 

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.


 

 

14 Apr 2019 20:34:52
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..

We need to show them lot no mercy tomorrow, nothing more than a win will do in my eyes.

I want to be walking out of the ground tomorrow knowing we've just smashed them to pieces.

Drogie

1.) 18 Jan 2020 12:21:49
Drogie, it's ok to get excited about the game BUT calm down man. We get too pumped up with the pre-game hype of this gams and so do the players due to the media hype and then we are surprised that we are average or poor in this fixture cos IMO, all we do is play the occasion, not the games, IMO. And I doubt we will be smashing anyone into pieces tmrw, IMO. Let's get excited and support our team BUT I won't be giving it any more attention than it deserves.


2.) 18 Jan 2020 12:49:57
I hear you, Drogie. If Klopp has been taking a relatively measured approach to games so far to sustain energy and avoid injuries, then this is the game I’d like to see us step up a gear. Utd are not so much poor as inconsistent and their confidence is fragile. We have a lot of players fit again whereas they might not be able to field their top scorer.
I’d like to see us go for the throat from the start with a sustained high press. An early goal and they will melt.
I’m confident we can outplay them for 90 minutes and get a result but if we force our will on them it could be a massacre.


3.) 18 Jan 2020 14:28:07
Meister, What are you on about calm down? I’ve been going to these United / Liverpool matches for over 30 years, so please don’t tell me to calm down.

Regardless of their league position and I’m sure it will be a tight game, this is still the biggest game of the season.

You’re clearly too young to understand.


4.) 18 Jan 2020 17:18:57
With you drogie, if there's a game to get excited about its this one, been a frustrating fixture for a few years but I have a feeling tomorrow will be as one sided a Derby as any in my lifetime, City need us to lose 2 games just so they stay 13 points behind, that alone should give our lads no fear, just go out and enjoy it, if our players and fans both hit their strides together then this could be embarrassing, if you're worried I've jinxed it then watch from behind your sofa, but if there was ever a time to be confident in our club then THIS IS IT!


5.) 18 Jan 2020 18:09:24
I watched klopps press conference and he was talking about the history of Liverpool and he said clob instead of club. Love him.


6.) 18 Jan 2020 19:39:12
I'm with Drogie on this, I always want Liverpool to win this more than any other game. In spite of all Man Citys' money and quality, it never quite feels the same as Liverpool v Man Utd.


7.) 19 Jan 2020 14:03:37
Well said Drogie. It’s for the manager and players to keep their emotions in check. Us match-going fans should go absolutely mental. I want to see us humiliate United.


 

 

12 Jan 2020 17:48:32
City certainly aren't going away. Destroying villa tonight, they are right back on form.

The could easily go on a 16 game run and achieve 95 points, we certainly can't rest on our laurels!

Drogie

{Ed047's Note - absolutely but I don’t think for a minute you will


1.) 12 Jan 2020 19:15:57
They have a better goal difference than us now.

We'd better not end up on the same points total.


2.) 12 Jan 2020 19:45:53
Fully agree with that Drogie, in any other era it would be wrapped up, but city demonstrated last year the sort or run they’re capable of and that’s why Klopp will be so wary of slip ups, like when he went absolutely ballistic on the touch line yesterday day when we were getting sloppy. They always say that the most difficult part is crossing that final line, in a way the pressure hasn’t really started yet, that’ll happen as we get within a couple of wins of the title. The experience that the whole club has got from the last 2 years should stand them in foot stead though, but I am very much one of those not wanting anyone to jinx things.


3.) 12 Jan 2020 19:45:56
Upto us to make sure we take points from them.


4.) 12 Jan 2020 20:13:33
City went away weeks ago. I reckon they could go undefeated for the rest of the season but it's too late. Only we can chuck it away. If we do I'll be sick but I can't see it.

Watching city/ villa the city fans were saying "Liverpool don't beat teams 5 0 regularly" 30 villa fans (and me) said "they don't lose either"

I watched City and they are so good. But I had to remind myself, villa are a big club but a small team atm. And look what happened the last time we played city. We spanked them.

Side note: grealish seems a nice enough lad and he's a good dribbler but I hope we stay well clear. I don't see where he fits into our squad. His team mates regularly lost the ball not 5/ 6 feet from him and he didn't even cover for them. Danny drinkwater had a debut to forget. He looked so good for Leicester, what has happened to him?


5.) 12 Jan 2020 20:38:44
City are a great side this is not news to any of us. They are capable of beating any team by any score when they play well but I’d have to say they were helped by a woeful defensive display from Villa today.
Where we are a class above City is that we are difficult to play against. You can get at City’s back line which has happened on numerous occasions this season so if they’re not playing well going forward they are likely to lose.
We can play badly but have enough defensive stability to get through games and enough quality in attack to still get goals.
They are awesome at times but we are far more efficient.


6.) 12 Jan 2020 20:59:14
They beat Villa and now we're afraid, come on, believe.


7.) 12 Jan 2020 21:32:28
it's over. the doubt is there because we haven't done it before. last year's disappointment has given us a steely resolve and winning the CL has given us credibility and belief.

Klopp's boys have been on title winning form since last season. They are well on the way.


8.) 12 Jan 2020 22:10:15
We shouldn't be worrying about man city they could go and win every game as long as we don't lose to them in really don't see us dropping that many points before the end of the season.


9.) 12 Jan 2020 22:47:30
I actually am not concerned with City for one reason - they are inconsistent. One game they can smash the opponents, next they will lose 3-2 after a host of defensive howlers.

I think because of the run they had last season, there’s still that possibility they could do it again this season. But I doubt so. They won many games with a tight margin in the run-in, quite a number of 1-0 I recall. They don’t have a defence that will enable them to do so this season.

And just as winning 18 of 19 matches in the 2nd half of the season was impressive, don’t forget, we just finished the first half of this season at that pace and doesn’t look like stopping.

It’s up to just to cross the finish line.


10.) 12 Jan 2020 22:58:56
It was always a 2 horse race and nobody really believed Leicester were our main challengers. Man City, like last year will beat any team they play with the possible exception of us. I think it will help Liverpool focus on the league and not get complacent if City hit the same form as last season. Although Villa were way out of their depth and I can see them being relegated.


11.) 12 Jan 2020 23:13:37
I think it'll be more nervy for us than the players. But yeah, been unstoppable for ages.


12.) 12 Jan 2020 23:15:22
Robbiesline I couldn’t agree more. I hope we stay well clear of Grealish. I don’t even think he’s good enough to be a squad player. He's a big fish in a small pond, ie. he looks good in a poor team but I think he’d be very very mediocre in a good team. I’m Irish and imo we were good enough for him until he believed in his own hype and jumped ship for England. He’s not near good enough for them but could have been a star man in our much inferior midfield. I’m not bitter about loosing him at all as I’d prefer not to have that sort of jumped up jack (no pun intended) playing for my team so I definitely wouldn’t want him in a Liverpool shirt but if he’s what klopp deemed necessary/ good enough I’d definitely have no problem admitting to being wrong and bowing to his far far far inferior knowledge.


13.) 12 Jan 2020 23:16:07
Tbf they beat watford 8-0. Villa were so poor today.


14.) 13 Jan 2020 07:25:56
No one is afraid, just realistic - I’ve seen us fall down far too often.

As soon as it’s mathematically possible for us to be caught - then I believe.


15.) 13 Jan 2020 07:55:21
We'd have to lose maybe 6 or 7 games out of the next 17 to miss out to either City or Leicester. And they'd have to win every single game. Given our current run I just don't see that happening.


16.) 13 Jan 2020 08:26:31
City win one game against a bottom three side and it's back on? We are 14 clear with a game in hand. This Liverpool team do not loose very often, they certainly don't loose 6 out of 17 in one competition. Just relax and enjoy the ride .


17.) 13 Jan 2020 08:39:06
While we don't have to have a morbid fear of failure or not getting across the finish line, the one thing worse is being overconfident.
City's form could do for us this season what our form did for them last season. That's what I'd hope for, because that would mean a photo finish for us and everything else won't matter.
Next game for us will be key. Get three point there and win the game in hand later in the month, and we'll be smelling it.
Walk on.

{Ed001's Note - I wish people would stop talking about having to lose X amount of games! We lost what once last season? Still finished second. Draws are just as damaging, as they can affect morale as well as cost points.}

Why do we care about the goal difference. They are better by a couple. If we drop 16 points they are going to end up being 10-20 goals better off. I'm more than confident the way we are playing. City will have 2 tough ties against Real Madrid as well as Carabo cup semi final and more than likely final over the next 6 weeks. We may have rode our luck a couple of times this season to get the win. But I don't think I've watched 1 game yet this season where I've thought we would lose the game.


19.) 13 Jan 2020 11:00:51
35 points from 17 games, should be not problem for us.

If we cannot do that then we do not deserve to win the league.


20.) 13 Jan 2020 13:43:08
If Aguero hadn't broken records last night, this match wouldn't be getting talked about anymore. That's how far away Man City are from us in the league this season. We've got it sewn up if we continue with the same attitude we approach every game with.


21.) 13 Jan 2020 13:48:49
Did anyone actually watch the game and see how appallingly bad Villa were? I'm not being funny but the difference between them last night, compared to when they played us, wasn't just City. The gruelling festive period has hit them hard with injuries and they were very leggy and unfocused - City didn't need to be brilliant to steam roll them. It is hardly a cause for worry.


22.) 13 Jan 2020 15:03:21
Doo hamlet, I didn't know that about grealish, jumping ship. I think young maddison has to be in front of grealish in any chances England.

There's a player in there. A really good one. But he is at his boyhood club. I respect him for that and am well jealous but he needs to work with as one of the elite managers and coaches. I like their man. Deans a proper old fashioned manager but not perfect for grealish's development. He's told yo just roam. Great coaching.


23.) 13 Jan 2020 17:16:12
Ed001, this is exactly the point, too many draws can be more damaging than loses.

The time we lost out to United under Rafa, we lost less games than United but drew too many, the same last season, we only lost once where as City lost 3 or 4.

{Ed001's Note - exactly. We just need to keep winning.}


24.) 13 Jan 2020 20:52:34
City actually won a game, scoring 6 goals and I did'nt care. Long may that continue.


 

 

03 Jan 2020 09:14:26
The injuries are really starting to stack up, let's hope Naby isn't out for too long.

Drogie

1.) 03 Jan 2020 09:57:17
Correct me if I’m wrong but hasn’t Naby had a couple of Injuries during the warm up on match day. Not sure how common this is, is it bad luck or something that he is doing or needs to be looked at by the guys taking the warm ups.


2.) 03 Jan 2020 10:58:16
We need to get to the so called winter break, then regroup. Hopefully Fabs and Lovren will be back soon to give the squad a boost but we are getting down to the bare bones. From the next 5 games I think 11 points would be more than acceptable.

{Ed001's Note - Matip is likely to be back rather than Lovren mate.}


3.) 03 Jan 2020 11:25:23
Thanks for the info, hope they have got to the bottom of his knee troubles. Fabs would make the biggest difference as he can play a few positions, fingers crossed.

{Ed001's Note - agreed he is the one we need back. That then frees us from worries in defence and midfield.}


4.) 03 Jan 2020 12:22:07
Is it looking mite like February before he back though?


5.) 03 Jan 2020 14:09:52
Klopp just given an update. Fabs is running outside but not yet in team training. 2-3 weeks he should be in contention to start.


6.) 03 Jan 2020 16:30:29
Fab will be back early Feb, IMO.


 

 

02 Jan 2020 22:16:31
Ed001.

I know your a fan of his.

Once again, a master class performance from our captain tonight.

Drogie

{Ed001's Note - he was excellent. Even though he is having to be more restrained than he would like, he still excels and is turning in top class performances on a regular basis. Turning into a great captain.}


1.) 02 Jan 2020 23:09:19
and he won't be 30 till the end of the year!

when will he start being talked about as a great leader among the wider footballing community.

{Ed001's Note - should be no doubt about his credentials any more.}


2.) 03 Jan 2020 01:02:37
so happy for our captain. The energy is unbelievable. Always there to help others out.


3.) 02 Jan 2020 23:29:41
Unless you're Ed025 but then what does he know🤷‍♂️.

{Ed025's Note - not much it seems barry mate.. :)


4.) 03 Jan 2020 00:48:47
With the performances that he's putting in this season I think that he has a great shout as player of the year, that's just my opinion i know ed 25 will have something else to say but this year he playing absolutely magnificent.

{Ed025's Note - he is actually playing very well lately deisered, how long that lasts is anyones guess and not playing under any pressure certainly helps, but fair play to the guy..


5.) 03 Jan 2020 08:55:27
He has been excellent this season. Never thought he could play so many games back to back anymore. I think he has lean't the holding midfiled now and isn't charging around pressing at the wrong times. Hendo is playing the holding role as well as Fabs was, big compliment.

Agree growing or grown into a top class captain.


6.) 03 Jan 2020 10:00:44
Ed25, Hendo has been playing under a tonne of pressure since he signed at LFC for big money and esp. since he became LFC capt. so I ain't buyin your theory. Not only has he been under a tonne of pressure from jump he has not only thrived on it, it has actually made him a better player and leader of men. As Klopp said last night, "If anybody does not see the quality of Jordan Henderson, I cannot help them". Peace!

{Ed025's Note - he has improved as a player and especially as a captain RM, still has a few games where he is a bit negative and waves his arms around like a traffic cop, but all power to the guy mate..

We're going to have to make a few changes for Everton I reckon.

Whilst I'd like a good cup run, I'm all for it, the injury situation has to taken into consideration now.

Sunday will be Everton's cup final, with the scallys talking up most of the Annie road end. For me, the league game against Sheffield United has to take priority.

Drogie

1.) 01 Jan 2020 17:12:55
100% play the kids. They’ll batter Everton anyway.


2.) 01 Jan 2020 19:45:05
I don't know how you can say the kids would better Everton. Have you forgotten Aston Villa already.


3.) 01 Jan 2020 21:04:07
Absolutely. Can see Origi, Takumi and maybe Elliot all starting. Cue cries from elsewhere that we’re not respecting the FA cup but who cares? We’ve got bigger fish to fry this season, and I don’t want to see someone integral to our season get booted by Everton!


4.) 01 Jan 2020 23:09:07
We need to rest vvd and Gomez first and foremost for me, but apart from Nat Phillips does that mean hendo at the back again, Van der berg doesn’t seem ready. Maybe Williams can play too, but I’d rest Trent. Lallana can keep his place, and if shaq is fit he and origi should start with Elliot. Milner in the middle with Lallana, but I wouldn’t want to push gini too much either as he isn’t 100%, maybe Curtis Jones?


5.) 01 Jan 2020 23:08:28
Think the term ‘kids’ might cover the players not in the starting line up, as well as the youngsters. Guess it depends on how many fronts the boss thinks we can fight. We all know how much the title means to the club and supporters so like it or not, the FA cup has to take a slight second place.


6.) 02 Jan 2020 01:17:24
My lineup for Everton:

Adrian, Hoever, VDB, Philips, Larouci, Williams, Chirivella, Longstaff, Elliot, Jones, Brewster

The FA cup is our last priority at the minute. Why risk any of our senior players when we are so desperate to win the league and defend the UCL crown?


7.) 02 Jan 2020 07:56:19
I guess there will be senior players not getting too much game time that will want to play IB?


8.) 02 Jan 2020 09:38:34
For me, Klopp will find a middle ground in his lineup as he knows that a derby is always very important to the fans so he will respect the fans by putting a competitive team out, IMO.
Also can I just say that the whole "we are disrespecting the FA Cup" is becoming a tired talking point?

Two seasons ago, Willian and DDG before the Chelsea/ Utd final, said that they would rather get a top 4 spot than win the FA Cup (Chelsea were 5th that season) . Were they respecting the FA Cup? Again, It's becoming an old, tired talking point now.

Last season, Leicester City played a full reserve line-up with kids and got beaten by Newport, I think. Were they also respecting the FA Cup then? I'm over it now, seriously.

We play who we think is fit to play and produce and protect the squad for more important commitments esp. since our squad is pretty ravaged by injuries and fatigue at the moment.


9.) 02 Jan 2020 13:05:48
Play a team strong enough to win, why not go for the FA cup on top of the league and champs league?

Meister, What are you on about calm down? I’ve been going to these United / Liverpool matches for over 30 years, so please don’t tell me to calm down.

Regardless of their league position and I’m sure it will be a tight game, this is still the biggest game of the season.

You’re clearly too young to understand.

Nothing strange mate, Milner and Naby have muscle injuries and both very recent. Muscle injuries can vary in healing time.
