1 point closer ED001 mate. Never known the feeling of winning the league, last night just made it all seem so much more real. Appreciate nothing is done yet but after them 3 months off the feelings of watching our boys back in action again was great. Hope you're keeping well mate.

In Istanbul

{Ed001's Note - I was just glad to get the game out of the way. Everton always hack their way through derbies and they make me nervous of the damage that gets done to our players more than the chances of a bad result. Nobody has played well this weekend, it is going to take time to get match sharp, 3 or 4 games at the very minimum. Good here thanks, just glad to have footie back! How are things there?}

You think about it, apart from injuries, this last 2/ 3 months has probably been the longest pro footballers have gone without playing football since they were kids. I mean no training for ages, no contact with fellow players. Even if we draw five matches, so what?

{Ed001's Note - I doubt any kid who has ended up in the pro ranks will have gone more than 2 or 3 days without playing a game. I know the longest I ever went was a week as a kid.}

2.) 22 Jun 2020 10:00:04
Very true and I think we all need to accept it will take time to get back into form
I’m happy that Keita looked good in the first game back
For me he can make a difference to us is he stays fit but there is definitely a Liverpool player there for me.

3.) 22 Jun 2020 10:58:19
Brilliant thanks mate, been on furlough for over 2 months which is the most surreal thing I've ever been through. But no complaints so long as everyone is healthy at the end of it. Just typical yesterday it was the machine Millie who goes off injured, about as ironic as it gets. I'd never read too much in to any derby game personally let alone this one. The big prize is all that matters.

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate, it doesn't matter how we get there now, every team that wins it has a stutter, but we are now faced with completely unprecedented circumstances and all that matters is getting over the line.}

4.) 22 Jun 2020 11:41:30
Lol, same here ed01. Always had a game going on as a kid. Keita did look good eh. I really like him. I think he needs his confidence up. Before his last injury he was playing really really well. Scoring, involved in everything. An in form keita is absolutely massive.

{Ed001's Note - if he can stay fit he will be fine.}

5.) 22 Jun 2020 11:51:55
Totally agree Ed001 even before the lockdown I was saying I don't care about the performance just get job done and the trophy in the cabinet.

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate, it is all about that trophy.}

6.) 22 Jun 2020 18:51:06
Spot on, Ed. I expected us to be rusty yesterday so not surprised. With Everton hacking, did you see the dreadful treatment Mane went thru last night and Mike Dean just stood there and waved play on? Happy he’s ok cos I feared for him as well.

As for the game itself, Naby was excellent and I thought Minamino looked sharp and crisp in his movement as well. Mane was also on it.

All in all, let’s wrap up the Pl and then on to next season.

Defo ed01.

What was your opinion on David James mate?

In Istanbul

{Ed001's Note - a waste of talent. He could have been a world class keeper but he was a complete bellend and never bothered achieving what he could. Constantly late or missing training to party. Utter dick and should have been booted out of the club long before he did.}

1.) 05 May 2020 16:50:58
So a high opinion then 😂
He's just before my time, my early memories of him were that he was absolutely god awful to be honest.

{Ed001's Note - god awful is a very accurate summation of his time with us. Too far up his own backside to bother trying, that was the problem.}

2.) 05 May 2020 17:21:51
David James is one of the most agile goalkeepers I've ever seen, had the right build for a goalkeeper too. Obviously struggled with concentration, some of the goals we conceded from corners back then still make me cringe. There was one against Leeds in a 2-2 draw I believe where he came for the ball from a corner with his hands behind his back. Had an ok career after he left us but should have been so much more.

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate. He was an excellent athlete but he had no desire to put himself out.}

3.) 05 May 2020 17:33:02
Calamity James.

4.) 05 May 2020 18:02:25
Ed01, with the likes of James, Collymore, Ruddock etc, who were here in the 90's and conducting themselves in reprehensible fashion, just how did we ended up with this lot of players who tho talented, where a complete shambles mentality-wise and lacked the grit and will to actually achieve something with the club and their careers, as a whole? Was it a case of "it's the 90's and everything was out of hand" or a case of just LFC not knowing how to sign players? Cheers, man.

{Ed001's Note - we lost Geoff Twentyman and the rest of our scouting network was just useless. A lack of investment after that meant we were left behind by the modern game.}

5.) 05 May 2020 18:46:46
I remember his first few games and thought wow we have signed a proper talent here
But for me the one thing that sticks in my mind he how he cost us in Europe against PSG
After that I never forgave him.

6.) 05 May 2020 20:30:34
Hadn’t Geoff Twentyman been gone a good while Ed, I think he departed around Kenny taking up the Player-Manager role?
There’s been growing disquiet about Everton’s rise in the mid 80s when it was felt Liverpool’s scouting had been left behind rather?
Ironically it was Graeme Souness who took him to Rangers.
It all started going wrong when we were signing Southerners lol. Though there is some truth in that!

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, that was my point we never invested after he left in a modern network.}

7.) 05 May 2020 22:34:17
Why did we take so long to replace him? I know we spent a year (or more? ) wrangling a work permit for Friedel, but that wasn't until 1997 or 98 when Jamo had been at the club since 1992 and first choice since 1994.

{Ed001's Note - because they kept hoping he would come good.}

8.) 05 May 2020 22:42:11
Secret Diary of a Liverpool Scout. a good read that.

{Ed001's Note - excellent book.}

Not football related at all this ladies and gents.
I just wanted to ask if everyone is safe and well? I think of the people in my life who are alone and worry about how they are, and it's great we have each other to talk to. I like to think we have that on this site as well
So that's it really, just hoping everyone is doing well and wishing you all the very best.

Hi in Istanbul. I feel a bit guilty responding, as where I live in Australia, things haven't changed a lot. My work has slowed a fair bit, but that has just allowed me to golf, kitesurf and do house renovations more. Our g'ment acted fairly swiftly and broadly and we are seeing the benefits, less than 85 dead.
Speaking with family back in Liverpool and things couldn't be more different unfortunately. Mum is elderly, recent heart op and now suspected pneumonia. If flights were on I'd head home, but not possible so hoping for the best.



09 Feb 2020 21:05:42
Randomly just sat watching crap tv and it ocurred to me that with the exception of Gomez, Lovren and Minamino every other outfield 1st team regular has scored a league goal this season
How impressive is that.

In Istanbul

1.) 09 Feb 2020 21:20:47
Probably Minamino will join the club. Im not sure if Lovren will have another run of games ever again, as I see him leaving. Gomez is yet to score his first for the club.

2.) 09 Feb 2020 23:39:58
If you go Europe too, Lovren scored a pretty important one.

3.) 11 Feb 2020 03:39:41
Gomez has yet to score a goal in his career which is strange when you see him going up constantly for set pieces which we have huge number of goals scored from in last 2 or so years and he's rarely even come close that I can think of. Lovren is always a threat but hasn't played much this year while minamino will inevitably score some goals this season. Even the likes of Hoever, Jones, shaqiri, lallana, keita have nabbed crucial goals despite a lack of regular games which is great.

Very impressed with the OX input this season, read this week he's got 8 goals I think in 17 or 18 starts and he's yet to play a full 90 mins either. Along with hendo, Milner, gini, keita scoring a few each and fabinho and lallana with 1 or 2 we've racked up roughly 25 goals from midfield and VVD with 5 or so along with Trent and robbo 2 or 3 each and matip notching that's another dozen goals from defence. Origi with a handful to add to shaqiri and Jones a few between them also we've probably scored 40-45 goals spread out between the squad without our front 3 star men which is crucial to our success. I'm thinking late Milner winner, late robbo header, late lallana equaliser, wijnaldum winner, fabinho vs city, hendo vs spurs, VVD vs United, Trent vs Chelsea all examples of huge moments being delivered by every player from defence to midfield to subs which not many teams have been able to do over the years.

Ed002, I might be a million miles off with this but I'd like to say it anyway. Been seeing so many people on congratulating themselves on '' calling'' the Alisson deal day's ago. I do believe Sparky called it weeks ago with the cryptic clue of the chair. Point I'm making is, yet again sparky was well on top but will like you get very little credit for being well informed. Either way, yet again it confirms to me that other than the Ed's and Sparky. I listen or take notice of very little other ITK.

In Istanbul

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure Sparky gives out clues in the form of Chairs, Have you ever analysed where is ears are pointing in the photographs?}

1.) 19 Jul 2018 15:09:02
Are they pointing towards Mecca? Fekir is a Muslim


2.) 19 Jul 2018 15:19:41
Ceiling? Cillessen 😲.

3.) 19 Jul 2018 15:14:33
Months ago actually would be more like it. There was a reference to signing a lady I think?

4.) 19 Jul 2018 15:08:26
How does a spotty chair = Alisson OP?

Are they pointing towards Rome Ed? Not sure about the ears but the eyes def look like Brazilian flags.

Now what’s the Frosties shirt all about? Is it a cycling shirt?

{Ed002's Note - It was to remind Nobby that he lives in a non Rice Krispies house as far as I recall.

5.) 19 Jul 2018 16:27:55
Non rice krispies. means it's Frosties all the way = Lions (Lyons) = Fekir. sure it's all making sence now lol.

6.) 19 Jul 2018 17:12:22
Wasn't Tony a tiger, rhymes with fekir.

7.) 19 Jul 2018 19:26:03
I genuinely don’t think the wonder dog sparky twitter account gives hints to any transfers.
I think it’s just ed002’s way of teasing people. Also it probably keeps people from hounding him all the time whilst they try to decipher clues that aren’t there.

Liverpool players classed as homegrown. Those with * are trained by the club
Keheller *
Trent *
Williams *
Jones *
Brewster *
Wilson *
If a playeris aged under 21 he does not need to be registered. We've close to 30 players in our squad and can only register 25 with 8 being home grown, 4 of which must be trained by theclub to be registered in the European squad. We certainly need to move some players on. No point me listing the squad, all fans should know that anyway.

Utd playing catch up on players fitness, why wouldn't they put out the strongest team possible. It's all about minutes right now. I'm hoping we put out a strong 11 on thursday and in any other rounds we may participate in. Your post is frankly embarrassing.

No, the window remains open for another 30 days. This stuff gets covered 10 times a day, why can people not grasp this I do not know. Either way it is Klopp who works with what he has at his disposal, why do people go on and on about it all the time.

It far from pains me to say it mate, I really rate Carlo and I can see him having a very good summer. You can only forsee next season being a very tough one with some excellent managers wt the helm and several teams improving. If we (Liverpool) can at least challenge for the title I will be happy. Don't get me wrong you want to win the title every year, but so do several other sides.
I'm diung very well thanks for asking, excited about summer both personally and from a footballing perspective, hoping Liverpool strengthen but nit expecting too much to happen.

In Istanbul

{Ed025's Note - liverpool will definitely be contenders in istanbul, i fully expect you to win the league again next season but maybe with not as wide a margin as this year, everton will struggle again i believe even with carlo at the helm mate..
