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.


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


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.


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.



{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.

Solanke is a done deal -£19m.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 16:25:07
£19 million for someone who has potential. nuts but fair play to Edwards for getting that much for him. particularly if there’s a sell on fee/ first option clause in it.

{Ed0333's Note - Micheal Edwards has played a blinder, well done that man.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 16:34:48
A couple of people on here were saying that the Solanke deal to Palace falling through the other day was a disaster, they’ll be eating humble pie now.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 16:58:51
Getting clyne surely had to be an incentive for them paying over the odds for Solanke, it made little sense for us to move him on otherwise. If that’s the case then it’s still a good deal.



29 Dec 2018 20:08:34
The Echo have reported the club could be open to a more lucrative sponsor with either Nike or Adidas, any truth in this?


1.) 29 Dec 2018 20:43:57
I have read they are attempting to get 75m per season with New Balance Adidas Nike and Puma all mentioned as potential providers of the kit. It does seem we need to maximise our selling point to help Klopp delivery success on the pitch.

2.) 29 Dec 2018 22:24:29
There have been reports that Liverpool are looking for a record deal with NB. To be honest I really like the kits we’ve had with NB. I think the Nike kits are hideous.

3.) 30 Dec 2018 09:33:34
Barcelona supposedly has a deal for £140 Million per year with Nike (ManU are at £75 Million per year already, with Adidas) . That's the standard to beat. I like the New Balance kits. Hope we can continue with improved terms.

4.) 31 Dec 2018 07:01:57
I like Adidas but let's not forget that they dumped us when weren't so successful. Not entirely their fault because we underachieved and didn't have CL football for some time. Warrior/ NB came along and gave us a good deal. They came to us when we were down, so it would be nice to have them when we are on the up. The question is, we're not here to do charity and neither are they. It is a business opportunity for both sides. So, whoever stumps up the cash, will get the deal and hopefully the money will be invested wisely to strengthen the team further. So, be it Adidas, Nike or NB. as long as they pay us well, that will be good enough. But I understand the concerns about Adidas/ Nike kits which are usually carbon copies of other teams bar the team colors and logo.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 16:03:45
New balance kits have been good, wouldn't mind staying with them :)

DAPred makes a fair point also.




Drogie's banter posts with other poster's replies to Drogie's banter posts


15 Aug 2019 09:25:53
Slightly concerned with the defence so far this season. I'm sure Klopp will sort it soon but the space behind our back 4 was there for all to see last night, as has been all pre season.


1.) 15 Aug 2019 09:58:37
We started the season the same way last year. And were lucky with quite a few of the results, until confidence started building up, and we rolled on.

2.) 15 Aug 2019 10:11:28
Yeah, Drogie. I am concerned about it as well. There was a time last night where the defensive line was almost at the edge on the centre circle. And it seemed like the game was being played in a telephone booth. I don't know what the Ed's know about this or if this was a system change for this season BUT we are sitting ducks back there esp. with Hendo and Milner pushing up on the wings and the fullbacks all the way up as well. That leaves the CM wide open and Chelsea esp. with Kante had acres of space to work with, running at our defence at will cos Fab was literally alone whenever we lost the ball and got caught up field.

3.) 15 Aug 2019 12:01:07
A definite pattern emerging from Liverpool’s opposition so far this season - hit us out wide. Diagonals, punts from keepers, concentrating on perceived full back weaknesses, hindering our full backs getting forward so much.
The PL never stays the same, coaches and analysts are so adept these days that one season’s revelation can become next season’s hazard.
I think our full backs are going to get a really rigorous test this season, probably need to be rotated too.

4.) 15 Aug 2019 12:14:38
Fully agree, Juicer. Teams are taking advantage of our rampaging fullbacks out wide so the striker just peels back into the wide are vacated whenever we lose the ball and if the CB goes to engage out wide, the gap opens in the center for midfield runners to get thru. It's still early in the season and still got stuff to work on BUT it needs to be looked into. Pretty sure that Klopp is on the case, tho.

5.) 15 Aug 2019 12:34:24
The defence wasn't protected at all. They were to deep, attackers to high which left Milner, Hendo and Fab with too much space to try and cover. The gaps where the issue.

Big difference this year, seems to be we are not playing as reserved and compact. We are much more attacking which brings its own problems of being too open. Add to the situation that the defence has lost Alison, which is having an effect on the whole team. Build up from the back, confidence to play a high line and security that the gk is always an option.

6.) 15 Aug 2019 13:09:27
That’s it RedWolf.
One possible answer is to go to a back 3, say Gomez right, Matip central and Virgil left?
Opens up other possibilities to change midfield and up front too, and personnel - Bruno Fernandes incoming in January for instance 😀
But, yes, I think with the tactical battle.

7.) 15 Aug 2019 14:24:06
I don’t see why changing too much is necessary, and certainly not to a back 3 which would disrupt all our patterns. Better to just ask the FBs to be a little more cautious and use a more attacking midfield setup to create the danger instead. Keita and/ or Ox would be options.

8.) 15 Aug 2019 14:24:41
Juicer, how can we go back to something in this case a back 3, if we never played that system all season, last season? You will only compound the problem we already have at the back. Klopp only plays a back 3 due to injuries or player availability.

I can only remember Klopp playing a back 3 twice and that was once in 16/ 17 and once in 17/ 18. Nah, our boys just need to go back to the basics, pick a CB pair and run with it and make us a bit more compact once we lose the ball. These are the things we were doing last season that worked.

As for BF, he was never a thing cos now we are hearing that Utd were never in for him. Neither were Spurs. His people were just trying to put him in the shop window. Clearly, they had you fooled, lol.

9.) 15 Aug 2019 15:44:23
Hi RedWolf. I didn’t say go back to a back 3, I suggested it as a possible counter measure?
Similar to Holland.
Agree about Klopp’s past reluctance on it too but we’ll see how the tactical battle plays out as the season progresses, is what I’d meant to add.
If Lovren went, all the remaining CBs (including Hoever and van den Berg) are mobile and the back 3 could be an option now and then.

10.) 15 Aug 2019 16:11:30
Been saying this for weeks. We are playing a very high line so every is press higher up which is fine if the defence watch the runners from deep but we seem to be relaying on the ref to rule offside all the time.
I mite be picky here but VVD looks a bit to relaxed or lazy.



13 Aug 2019 07:15:51
Any one off to Istanbul?

This match is a distraction but I hope we win the thing. It'll spread even more confidence throughout the team and will be another trophy under Klopp's belt, all be it not a major one in the slightest. We have to keep up this winning mentality just as we did in Europe last season.


1.) 13 Aug 2019 08:14:56
Off course I hope we win the thing. These trophies are strange. You could see the City players were happy to win the Community Shield, not ecstatic but happy enough. If we go all the way over there then you should go all out to win. I agree Drogie, not a major trophy but winning can be addictive.

2.) 13 Aug 2019 08:26:40
I highly doubt Klopp will be going with the same team we saw vs Norwich.

Probably will start with Lovren and Matip at CB, Lallana, Keita and Shaq or Ox in midfield. Expect Mane to start to gain some match fitness with Origi and Brewster up top. Perhaps Hoever and Larouci as the fullbacks.

Not a bad team at all and more than capable of beating Chelsea.

{Ed0333's Note - if the rumours are correct about lovren leaving I doubt he’ll be in the team.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 10:07:35
Spot on, Ed. If Lovs did not even make the bench last Fri. why would he start tmrw with a move on the cards. It's called protecting your asset.

We have to go for the win cos for a young team like ours, we have to make winning trophies like this (not arsed about the CS) a habit as that can only help their confidence and self belief.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 11:10:18
I’d like to see us field a full strength side. It may not feel like a big trophy to some but never the less it’s a trophy.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 12:00:11
Lovren not even travelled with the squad lads.

6.) 13 Aug 2019 08:47:39
For sure Ed0333. Lovren is of interest. Does not mean Klopp will not select him to play. Does Klopp want to sell him?

Lovren may not be a starter anymore but he is still part of the squad, albeit 4th choice.

Yes we signed Van Den Berg, he is still a kid though and very much a player who still needs to learn his trade. While Lovren is still at the club he will be 4th choice.

{Ed0333's Note - I don’t know if Klopp wants him gone but for the sake of his career I’m not sure Klopp will stand in his way. There’s plenty of media speculation that Lovren has played his last game for LFC



11 Aug 2019 19:21:44
I work in Manchester, anyone else in the same boat?

If so, don't worry, the "we're above Liverpool " bus parade won't be going anywhere near the City, as soon as the bus hits the mancunian way, no one knows where they are.

Instead, the route will be a round robin tour of Salford.


1.) 11 Aug 2019 20:58:19
Utd should be happy, IMO. If you score 4 goals, you must have done a lot of things right. Having said that, Chelsea may have shipped in 4 goals but frankly, they should have been two up before even the Rashford penalty. You could see that based on the way both teams played, there are a host of issues that both managers need to work on. We shall see.

2.) 11 Aug 2019 21:49:02
Quite a limited game plan from Utd, sit deep and hit on the counter.
Still, they can’t play a high line with that defence.
Got some real quality and pace up front though, the young lad James is a flying machine and looks a good buy.

{Ed047's Note - playing Abrahams was a mistake for me, that guy couldn’t hold up a bank even if my Nan was the teller and no Kante 🤔

3.) 11 Aug 2019 22:08:22
I feel giroud is chelseas best option, a good striker who i feel never gets enough credit. Great touch and his link up play is top notch as well as being dangerous from crosses. Would be a great option for us to have when firmino not available, mane and salah playing off him and Trent and robbo putting the ball on his head. Abraham hasn't shown yet he's good enough to lead Chelseas line.

4.) 11 Aug 2019 22:44:08
Saving their players for Wednesday. Kante, Pulsic, OG. All start vs Liverpool, like it or not Chelsea win trophies, their entire focus will be to win another against us.

5.) 11 Aug 2019 23:12:48
I agree with LFC8 . I think Frank saved most of his players for Wednesday . It sort of back fired and had to use to some of them but it was too late.

6.) 12 Aug 2019 00:23:17
I wouldn't think for one second that Frank lampard in his first ever game in charge away to a direct rival United in the league opener decided to leave players fresh for what is essentially a much less important game on Wednesday. He surely picked the strongest 11 he felt was the best available. Only kante who is not 100% fit would be considered first choice. Giroud and pulisic likely wouldn't have started even if no super cup on Wednesday.

Imagine klopp rested salah firmino and fabinho with priority on midweek? Lampard would 100% have taken 3 points against United over beating us in super cup as would every single manager and fan. Laughable to consider otherwise 😂.

{Ed001's Note - no one is going to rest players in a league game for what is essentially a friendly game.}

7.) 12 Aug 2019 00:28:03
I don't believe any of that, LFC08 and Roy, respectfully. How do you know he saved his players for Wed? Which players, exactly cos Rudiger is still injured and Kante is still short of fitness after returning from injury last week.

So you are trying to tell me that Frank literally "threw" the game vs Utd, the first game of his managerial career at the highest level vs a historic rival and rival for top 4 in order to be ready for a game vs Liverpool? You actually think he chose to lose the game vs Utd in front of the whole world in order to maybe win a trophy vs a Liverpool team that is miles ahead of his Chelsea team. Seriously, where do you guys get this stuff from?

If you guys are trying to look for an out for Lampard's mistakes, I think you have picked the wrong alibi, IMO. Frankie should not have played Abraham and Ross Barkley cos clearly, they were poor and Barkley is a waste of space. "Chelsea wins trophies". And we don't? Come on, man. If both teams play to their potential, LFC win, end of story. We'll see what happens.

8.) 12 Aug 2019 11:05:10
I would agree with that LFC8 if they had been playing a newly promoted team at home perhaps but to prioritise a cup that is not really that prestigious ahead of Man Utd away would be madness and just asking for your pants to be pulled down.
Surely even Frank Lampard isn’t that stupid. Is he?

9.) 12 Aug 2019 12:27:36
Hi RedWolf, you might be right mate, I did n't think of the fitness element . did n't think European players needed extra time . I was n't making excuses for him, I did say whatever he was trying to do back fired in a massive way. I just don't understand why he would start with 3 inexperienced youths in a season opener against United.
I do think Wednesday they will be a different animal, I know there is the impression that its a friendly but its far from, like the charity shield neither team treated it as friendly.

{Ed001's Note - they had a few players, such as Kante, who were coming back from injury and not ready to start.}



10 Aug 2019 08:20:31
Big question. I usually drive to the match, this morning I awake with a hangover ( no car involved by the way ) .

I'm a bit superstitious at times, should I carry on having beers at the match so we keep winning. hmmm.


1.) 10 Aug 2019 08:59:29
Keep doing it mate until we lose one, if you keep drinking every single game of the season and we win the lot, you just have to become an alcoholic I'm afraid mate!

Bobby is key to our attack, he’s the one who makes the front three click. Not only this, he defends from the front, he reminds me of Rushy in that respect.

Love Bobby, what a player, worth every overpaid penny.

Absolutely ed001, was just playing devils advocate. We hit the post in first leg too.

Nothing will ever take the memory of the return leg mate and I’ve witnessed some special nights at Anfield Kate!
