Hi Eds.
Any views from around the club in John Flanagan?
I know the loan season didn't go as planned but on the pitch he has never let anyone down and shows the heart of a lion. Will he be given a shot in pre-season?


{Ed025's Note - i very much doubt it fitz..

1.) 02 Jun 2017 12:42:35
No definitely, he's barely featured for Burnley. Seems a great honest lad, but his knee injuries have had killed any bit of his speed. Should move to the championship and get a few few seasons under his belt.

2.) 02 Jun 2017 13:43:21
I read an article after his breakthrough season that said on average he was taken on more per game than any other full back in the league. That's stuck with me that Maybe we got carried away on him a little. Obviously injuries have struck but maybe he just wasn't as good as we all thought.

3.) 02 Jun 2017 14:20:52
I saw him in the bar of the Radisson in Manchester after Burney had been knocked out of the cup, by Lincoln I think? He was caning the beers with Joey Barton, so if he's been hanging out with that bell end and listening to his career advice his is virtually over. Shame as I liked him when he broke through.

{Ed025's Note - comparing him to barton is a terrible thing to say about a bell end pieboy.. :)

4.) 02 Jun 2017 14:37:06
Personally think the injuries have taken too much of a toll on him, sorry to say as he was very promising.

5.) 02 Jun 2017 15:38:09
Hanging out with Barton? Damn, that's bad news. Thanks Ed and all.

In the Spring of 2010 RBS bank appointed Sir Martin Broughton as Chairman of LFC to sort out the mess and to sell the club so they could get their money back from Gillet and Hicks.

In his 6 months at the club he fought off legal challenges from G&H and lead a divided board to sell LFC to FSG (half the board favoured a rival bid) . At all times he said he wanted the new owners to be the best fit for Liverpool in the long term.

He then left LFC to return to supporting his beloved Chelsea. Methinks he had a smile on his face when Jordan lifted the cup.

Thanks for your work back then Sir Martin.


1.) 29 Jun 2019 17:55:44
I dont remember him being from Chelsea but if he was fair play.

A lot of people on here slate ED002 and their live fir Chelsea but this to me goes to show what a well run club they are. Yes they have had a lot of managers but so what? They have won loads of trophies in that time.

Thanks for coming in Martin and putting us on the right path.


2.) 29 Jun 2019 18:27:40
I knew he was a Chelsea fan, but I never heard him actually working for Chelsea Football Club.

He was the chairman of British Airways when he became our chairman.

3.) 29 Jun 2019 18:38:08
Sir Martin Broughton is a businessman with tremendous acumen. He did the job professionally and used his experience to secure the club long term. He has enhanced his professional reputation in doing so.

4.) 29 Jun 2019 18:48:51
I can remember LFC fans on twitter lambasting Broughton when LFC got rid of Rafa.

The club needed to be swept Clean to start afresh.

The removal of H&G plus Rafa was the only way the club could move on after many years of turmoil.

Thanks to Broughton he picked out Fenway/ FSG and finally the club is back on track.

5.) 29 Jun 2019 20:50:39
I don't think Broughton was at the club when Rafa was sacked.

6.) 29 Jun 2019 21:25:16
My bad. He was indeed at Liverpool when Rafa left. I'm still not sure what his remit was regarding moving Rafa on tho.

7.) 30 Jun 2019 01:02:17
Actually, in interview with the Echo in 2017/ 18 (not sure which) he stated that he did not sack Rafa and didn't want him to go. I was convinced for a while that Ed002 was actually Sir Martin Broughton.

8.) 30 Jun 2019 01:16:53
As big a Rafa fan as I am, he was basically not talking to Purslow by the time Broughton came in. That's not really workable, so regardless of whether he had a specific remit to remove Rafa or not, he kinda had to.

Wonder what Ed001's views on Purslow are, actually. He didn't exactly come out of things smelling of roses.

{Ed001's Note - can't stand Purslow. He is slimy.}

9.) 30 Jun 2019 11:45:14
he did his job. its 2019 now, ya think we'd understand this!

10.) 30 Jun 2019 23:30:36
Oh my god, pass the sick bag please. Broughton rinsed the club personally for God knows how much to broker a deal between one set of venture capitalists to another set of venture capitalists who also continue to rinse the club to this very day. Post like this make me want to vomit, one day F$G will maximize there investment and won't care a jot who they sell to, but I'm sure you'd all still be on sites like this with fawning praise for them. Oh just remembered you can't criticise F$G on here, your views have to align with the guys on there payroll or your posts never see the light of day.

11.) 01 Jul 2019 00:15:23
So how come your posts get posted, huh? And I'm on nobody's payroll except my own since the last 40 years, so watch where you throw your words because it's coming right back at you.



12 Jul 2018 20:39:54
Courtois will be back from the world cup next week and should join Real or Athletico (his kids are in Madrid and it's where he wants to be) . So that should start the goal keeper merry go round. Courtois, Oblak, Navas, Allison might all be in that mix.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 20:47:31
As long as we avoid Navas and Cillessen I’ll be happy.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 23:41:49
Give ward a Run a of games see how the lad gets on can't be any worse the mignolet or karius.

3.) 13 Jul 2018 05:26:35
Haven't posted in a while even though I'm regularly on the site. Have to weigh in on the GK debate though. I'd definitely like to see Ward get an opportunity to claim top spot. I think with all the negative attention our other 2 keepers get it might spur him on. He'll know that the spotlight will be squarely fixed on him and that might be just be what makes him more determined to succeed.

4.) 13 Jul 2018 08:10:24
We don't see what Klopp and his staff see every day in training, but I'd like to see Ward given a try as well. It depends on if Klopp sees that as the straw that could finally break the camel's back in the case of Karius's already fragile confidence.
He's backed Karius recently, to do a sudden u-turn on that would be out of character for Klopp.
I think Karius will be given the chance to prove he can rise above it. If he fails, Ward will get his chance.

5.) 13 Jul 2018 16:18:13
I don't know who the better keeper but if Klopp decided on Karius then he must have a very good reason for doing that . His job depends on his choice not my job or yours.



29 Jun 2018 15:26:02
Anyone know about when the Ox is expected to be fit for?


{Ed002's Note - No they don't. The club has not said anything.}

1.) 29 Jun 2018 15:47:12
Thanks Ed.

2.) 29 Jun 2018 16:35:51
I think it’s 8-9 months so not expected before end December or Jan I think.

3.) 29 Jun 2018 19:10:06
Hopefully he has a speedy return to match fitness when he's ready. He could be like a new signing if he does.

4.) 29 Jun 2018 21:05:05
Butland will be bought and will be a star because he has self belief. and because I've got £50 on it happening so sort it out!



11 Apr 2018 12:04:38
I just uploaded a picture on the 'Sightings' page of some of the team celebrating one of the goals. For me it sums up Klopp's management.

In the picture is the £8ml left back from Hull, the 19 year old right back from the acadamy, the Chelsea reject who is now the best in the Premiership, the striker who 'doesn't score enough goals' and the midfielder that people wondered why Klopp signed him from Arsenal. all celebrating going into the Champions League semi finals.


1.) 11 Apr 2018 12:33:19
That's fantastic Fitzy.

2.) 11 Apr 2018 13:41:57
It’s not on the Sightings page I’ve just looked at.

3.) 11 Apr 2018 14:50:38
I tried uploading it again there Klavy.

{Ed033's Note - Nothing came through, which could mean that the image is too large because there is an uploading file size limit of 6MB. Do you know the size of the image?

Just watched a UTube clip of Totti's last game for Roma. A reminder of what football can be about.

So EDs, what do you think, let's talk about picking an all time worlds greatest 11 of one club players who could have moved to other clubs and won more but didn't. So if they were at a club winning leagues etc they don't count. If like Gerard they finished the twilight of their career somewhere else in a lesser league for a season or two they still count (ie they would have stayed longer if age hadn't caught up with them)

Names like Gerard and Totti come to my mind. I remember Le Tissier in his day. To give him his due, John Terry came through the ranks at Chelsea didn't he? Casillias in goal for Real. Paulo Maldini, Franco Baresi etc. So what do you all think?


{Ed001's Note - Terry, Cassillas and Maldini won titles mate. I am pretty sure Baresi did as well.}

1.) 10 Mar 2018 04:26:26
Alan shearer, in an odd way. I know he played for Southampton and Blackburn but he spurned a lot of interest to go and stay at Newcastle.

{Ed001's Note - he turned down Ferguson's Man Utd when they were winning everything to stay with Newcastle on more than one occasion.}

2.) 10 Mar 2018 09:53:43
Gk: Rogerio Ceni (Sao Paulo)
Cb Jack Charlton (Leeds)
Cb: Jamie Carragher (Liverpool)
Cb: Ledley King (Spurs)
Rm: Gary Kelly (Leeds)
Cm: Danielle De Rossi (Roma)
Cm: Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)
Lm: Kenny Jacket (Watford)
Cam: Matthew Le Tissier (Southampton)
Cam: Francesco Totti (Roma)
St: Santiago Bernabeu (Real Madrid)

Took me ages to think of this side 😂 does Ceni count? He won a lot of titles but they were in a financially poor league, and he could easily have got a move to a big club in Europe if he'd wanted. Jack Charlton only won one league title but played for Leeds for 2 decades so I figured it would be fair to include him. Gerrard was allowed by the OP. Bernabeu stuck with Real Madrid at a time when Spanish football was in disarray and then helped to transform them from the dugout and the boardroom. He is the Madrid Equivalent of Bill Shankly and Kenny Dalglish combined.

Every player needs real competition for his place to acheive and maintain top performance. Clyne has that now on his return. He might surprise a few on here.

If Mignolet goes and we need a third keeper for cover, Given is looking for a club.

It was horrible what happened appointing Houllier as joint manager. The club should not have done that and Houiller should not have taken part.

That was nearly perfect Jurgen. All you were missing was mentioning a "cheeky bid"

I don't know what everyone else has been watching. Lallana was injuryed all of last season. The season before having been moved to centre midfield he was probably the best player over the season (defo top 2).
I don't think Klopp would want him to leave at all.
