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
Ed 02
Sorry. I am in the states. Can you explain what those options are please?

Ed 02
Sorry. I am in the states. Can you explain what those options are please?

Matt in FL.

{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.

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..


 

 

 

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

 

31 Mar 2020 08:03:48
Interesting report form the Independent, there have been discussions about playing a "World Cup style " televised event in June and July across a handful of stadiums in the Midlands to finish off the the season. The Bundesliga are thought to be open to the possibility too

The government are aware apparently aware of this and the belief is that live televised football could be a vital lift for the nation, especially if lockdown measures are increased or tightened. It would certainly certainly give me a lift! I'll never slate Bolton v Forest in a Monday night ever again!

Drogie

1.) 31 Mar 2020 11:23:38
I'd take it with a pinch of salt. They reported it was going to be null and void. I'll wait until Friday I think it is to get any updates straight from the horses mouth.


2.) 31 Mar 2020 17:47:05
Spot on, Rudder. We will know more by the end of Friday. All the other stuff being whispered and speculated upon is all white noise.


3.) 31 Mar 2020 19:30:15
This isn’t a whisper or speculation - This has been discussed previously and it’s an idea that will be back on the table on Friday.


 

 

29 Mar 2020 19:31:20
Me again Ed002.Sorry!

I understand that LFC were lucky not to be sanctioned with regards to FFP - But I've heard Arsenal have led the charge against Manchester City with regards to City being sanctioned for FFP, with other teams, in the top half of the table ( including Liverpool ) following suit.

If for instance, the season is void and the league positions go back alphabetically, does this mean City's issues won't be up held due this season?

To be honest, it doesn't bother me either way, just interested in the situation.

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - There has been a great deal of misinformation about this matter and “letters” being sent in respect of a stay of punishment during the appeal process and quite frankly a couple of sides have embarrassed themselves greatly given they have no been told that there has been no request for stay during the appeal process. But the issue Manchester City have appealed against is unrelated to this season and goes back some years ago - so it makes no difference. There is no hearing date set for the appeal. It is fair to say that Manchester City are surprised and miffed that Liverpool got involved with this nonsense after having recently done Liverpool a significant favour.}


1.) 29 Mar 2020 20:11:38
That was my thoughts too Ed002.
Why we should get involved is mind boggling.


2.) 30 Mar 2020 08:42:02
Drogie. It’s just my hunch but this is no different to political you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours operations. I’m speculating that Liverpool would be wanting to win favours with certain clubs if we were to lobby for a premier league win without the season being concluded.

It doesn’t feel right to have signed that letter regardless.


3.) 30 Mar 2020 11:16:42
For me I wish we didn't go done this route. Not sure on the favour ed 2 mentioned but I think we have done some dodgy stuff over the years and need to keep our noses out of other teams affairs.


 

 

22 Mar 2020 10:17:28
Morning Ed001.

James Pearce used to be quite close to the club regarding info, is this still the case do you know?

Cheers.

Drogie

{Ed001's Note - not really, he was used as a mouthpiece for a while but the club try their best to keep everything quiet, so he is in the same position as the rest of us. He just got given soundbites.}


1.) 22 Mar 2020 10:28:21
Have you ever met Jimbo then Ed?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea, I wouldn't know. I have met a lot of journalists over the years, particularly ones working on the Echo and other local papers. I don't remember who they were and I very much doubt any of them would remember me either.}


2.) 22 Mar 2020 10:29:49
Ok, thanks Ed001.

Keep safe mate.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate and it is no problem staying safe here, it is apparently the safest place to be right now. So I should be telling you all to stay safe!!}


 

 

19 Mar 2020 13:10:54
Breaking.

The Fa and Premier League have agreed to extend the 19/ 20 season indefinitely, so long as circumstances allow to do so.

Drogie

1.) 19 Mar 2020 13:35:25
Extended indefinitely? What’s that mean then.


2.) 19 Mar 2020 13:51:29
I've just read it on the FA website,

"The FA’s Rules and Regulations state that "the season shall terminate not later than the 1 June" and "each competition shall, within the limit laid down by The FA, determine the length of its own playing season".

However, The FA’s Board has agreed for this limit to be extended indefinitely for the 2019/ 20 season in relation to Professional Football.

Additionally, we have collectively agreed that the professional game in England will be further postponed until no earlier than 30 April. "

In the main news, all I have seen is that the current suspension is extended to 30th April at the earliest.

So I think basically it means they haven't decided on a cut off point rather then deciding this season will definitely be completed.

{Ed002's Note - They will go to June 30 and that will be it.}


3.) 19 Mar 2020 14:16:33
Next season will have to wait according to sky for this season to be completed. if this goes on and on they hope all Europe leagues will follow suit and play out this season before thinking about the following season.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the intention.}


4.) 19 Mar 2020 14:27:22
Excuse my stupid question: what happens if things don't go back to normal until this time next year? Would the 2020/ 21 football season start in March, or would they have an extended break until August 2021?

I know this is all hypothesis. I'm just curious because in that circumstance it would make more sense to me if they continue where they left off. Obviously though that isn't going to happen.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody has discussed that.}


5.) 19 Mar 2020 14:54:19
With all the potential implications of not completing the season, I’m not sure why the couldn’t consider extending it past end June? They can also potentially even rejig the next season a bit to shorten it up a bit (shorten the cups, no replays, no two leg semis, no international friendlies etc. ) and play on until August.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the plan at this time.}


6.) 19 Mar 2020 16:38:04
Wish everybody would calm down a bit, going to be a difficult few months but I think by the end of June we will be in a different position.

No more cases in wuhan suggests it will pass and the end of the world doom managers can relax.

Football or any other sports can be sorted when we are in a position to make a proper decision.


7.) 19 Mar 2020 18:17:06
Wayne Rooney made a good point, with a winter world Cup coming this would be a good time to alter the seasons start and end dates to line up with that, we can worry about putting it back to normal after Qatar.


8.) 19 Mar 2020 15:22:54
Cheers Ed002.
I didn't know if they would have already set a cut off, and didn't want to hazard a guess at a date, but at the same time attempt to reiterate the point they won't let it go to cause much if any disruption to the following season

Can I ask, do you think it possible/ feasible if circumstances allowed for example that they could decide finish league but cancel the domestic cups?

And, do you think that UEFA would consider saying to national FA's to finish domestic seasons if its possible, but then void the UCL and Europa competitions.?

{Ed002's Note - UEFA have already re-iterated thay wish to see everything done by June 30. Cancelling domestic cups might be a possibility but right now everyone wants everything completed by June 30.}


9.) 19 Mar 2020 16:06:26
So looks like we're going to miss out ed02? Not going to be sorted by june 30th. That'll be a travesty. We are on 80 odd, the next team is on 50 odd. How can they Rob us?

{Ed002's Note - I never said that.}


10.) 19 Mar 2020 17:03:26
Despite what Ed2 says, circumstances and the unprecedented times we are in, will lead to next season starting late. What does it matter if it does?! For the integrity of football, all fixtures must be completed, across all leagues, no matter what. End of, as far as I'm concerned. I'm sure sense will prevail.

{Ed002's Note - It is not about fucking Liverpool.}


11.) 19 Mar 2020 17:08:54
Do you think there is enough tint to complete the season then Ed if we start playing again behind closed doors say mid May?

{Ed002's Note - As long as it starts by the beginning of June it will be completed if there are no issues.}


12.) 19 Mar 2020 20:13:29
Still waiting for my reply to be posted, Ed02. I'm entitled to have my right to reply shown, surely?
Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - You account is being removed for a break.}


13.) 20 Mar 2020 16:02:15
I think in the end they’ll be forced to play out the rest behind closed doors.

Yes no more new cases in Wuhan but they took strict measures a lot quicker than most European countries.

It’s not great watching football behind closed doors, but it would work for tv companies and the clubs as long as players are tested before hand and remain in isolation it’ll be safe enough for them to play it out.


14.) 21 Mar 2020 21:11:10
No they didn't, they his it and even arrested the journalist who first reported it. But it does seem the UK are so late in getting off their arses and implementing measures but it's not surprising with that bafoon Boris in charge.

Well Reds.

Adrian what a disappointment. It just shows how important Alisson is to Liverpool. It also highlights of not scoring an away goal, especially against a team like AM

But what a fantastic performance from us. I thought we played exactly how we all wanted them to play.

71% domination with enough shots on target to, on another night, to have won the game by 3 or 4. Which leads me onto their keeper -Oblak - just brilliant.

We had some stand out performances, thought Ox and Trent had a good game, one player really stood out though - Gini.
What fantastic game he had.

As much as I agree with all that you say there are still 2 things that stick out for me ( not just last night, but all season ) . We must pass the ball back to the keeper more times than any other team in the PL, even when there are outfield players in a position to receive the ball. A d the other thing is, what is the point of a throwing coach. Is there a worse throwin player than TAA, takes an age, and no end product.

{Ed001's Note - are you serious? Liverpool have the second highest ball retention from throw ins in Europe. The only team better than them are the only other team with a throw in coach. The end product is making sure the ball gets to a team-mate, not sure what you are expecting from a throw in? Do you expect them all to be assists?}

It can be frustrating at times, but isn't the reason we pass the ball around the back to try an entice teams out, create a bit more space.

The problem had been we've doing at a low tempo.

I still maintain that we haven't seen Liverpool play their best all season, yet look are how far we are in the league and but for a couple of errors might still be in the FA Cup and UCL, but definite improvement last night on recent performances, and a template for how we should approach teams. Need to get Ox able to play a full ninety, or have a like for like sub.

Who is the other team with a throw in coach ed?

{Ed001's Note - FC Midtyjlland (I think that's the correct spelling) and it is notable that now other teams have since hired one.}


4.) 12 Mar 2020 10:49:58
Ed001 I thought Everton were the best at throwing in. That's all they've done all season is throw in the towel. Remember when Ancelotti was appointed and they claimed they were going for top 4 haha. Fair play.

{Ed001's Note - good point. Or Spurs.}


5.) 12 Mar 2020 12:17:22
Cymru Red, as Ed01 said, are you serious? You are going to go after our own players cos of throw-in's? This is madness. You are no more frustrated than the rest of us after a painful loss but this is out of order. Our boys played out their skins and could have won that game by 4 goals easily.

I have watched AM play tonnes of times away in the CL and this is the first time I have seen that defensive system of theirs get ripped from pillar to post. We murdered them and created even more chances than I had anticipated BUT no, let's blame it all on throw-in's, passing to the goal keeper (something ALL team do now) or some other nonsense and start scapegoating our own cos you know, someone has to be blamed when LFC don't win. Pathetic!


6.) 12 Mar 2020 13:22:59
Red, did you read my post? I said it was a thing that I thought had been happening all season. You can't deny, that TAA takes an age to take a throwin. That is not necessarily his fault, because I don't see much movement from players to receive the ball. My post was regarding, that I don't see anything different from teams that don't have a throwin coach. WHY do we always wait for a fullback to come and take the throw, when a quick throw by the nearest player seems the obvious choice.

{Ed001's Note - you may not see anything different, but there has been a clear and noticeable improvement in the throw ins.}


7.) 12 Mar 2020 14:37:16
Ok terrible mistake by Adrian but Trent was under no pressure and passed it back to Adrian's bad foot. Stuff happens we move on.


8.) 12 Mar 2020 16:56:10
LeonRed, Adrian is two footed and clears and passes balls with his right foot (the same foot he put wrong last night) all the time and even many times last night so are you blaming TAA for Adrian's mistake? For passing him the ball on his "wrong" foot? Please, clarify.

Rubbish Tobliw, as a few have posted, no one knows what’s going to happen, things are changing day by day.

And your comments regarding playing behind closed doors is also nonsense! Matches are played behind closed doors all the time, especially clubs that get penalised for football violence etc.

So it can be done.

It almost looks certain that the Euros will be cancelled until next summer.

For me, the powers that he will do everything they can to get the domestic seasons completed, even if it means playing in June.

I could be wrong but the financial and legal implications, especially with clubs vying for promotion and those at the other end, would be pretty drastic.

The Telegraph have reported that we would be crowned champions should the season close early.

As to what other fans think should this happen - I couldn’t give 2 hoots. Especially when where 25 points ahead.

Interesting as always Ed002.
The club will obviously be aware of Salah’s desire to move and his agent’s attempts to broker a deal.

Tricky situation for LFC as we’d need to be looking at alternatives should the likes of Madrid decide, yes we want the player? Leaving it late with no planning and you end up like a situation United are in.

{Ed002's Note - It has been going on for at least two years. The club are, as you say, well aware of the situation.}

I read that too. Sounds like a decent player with a bit of interest in him.

I don’t think anyone knows mate, Ed002 mentioned the leagues really need to be finished by the 30th June. I can see Uefa trying to go into the summer should the 30th June date not be achieved.

Not related to the meeting on Friday but Uefa has lifted the ban on showing footie games starting at 15:00 on a Saturday live on TV in England and Scotland.

“ It is seen as the first move towards restarting some domestic competitions in the UK behind closed doors.

The blackout has long been in place during the English and Scottish season to protect attendances. “.

I think all the football authorities want the season finished.

I also heard on radio 5 Live, a pretty credible station for those not in the UK, that the hierarchy in Europe are threatening to void the European places of those countries that cancel or void their respective leagues.

This isn’t a whisper or speculation - This has been discussed previously and it’s an idea that will be back on the table on Friday.

That was my thoughts too Ed002.
Why we should get involved is mind boggling.
