So looking at the squad for the world club championships, unless some stay behind for the Villa game, the combined age of the starting 11 for the leauge cup game will be about 120. I hope the kids don't get a total thrashing as that will do thier confidence no good at all.

1.) 06 Dec 2019 12:11:58
The kids concede 4-5 goals on a regular basis so it will be very dangerous to just play the kids in defence agains't Villa. We will be fine going forward but we will need as much help as possible in defence. Matip and Fabs being injured does reduce our options.

I expect both Gomez and Milner to play.

2.) 06 Dec 2019 15:05:31
Gonez and Milner not at the CWC then?

3.) 06 Dec 2019 16:59:56
Of course Milner and Gomez are at the CWC, they won't play against Villa.

4.) 06 Dec 2019 17:56:10
That’s what I was saying Thunderbird. Although I’m sure I read down the page that Ed002 possibly expects a couple of squad players to play along with a few fringe players and U21/ U23 players, and then travel to Qatar that night and be involved.

5.) 07 Dec 2019 05:40:33
Think it will be a good experience for the kids provided they not just thrown in the deep end to make up numbers but instead there is a well mapped out plan to gain experience and improvement. I for one am really looking forward to seeing how they handle themselves against the mighty Villa.

Liverpools late late show against Villa last weekend makes Sundays game very, very interesting, or should I say more interesting in some respects than if Liverpool had not have won . I posted on here with twenty minuets to go during the Villa game that it was worrying as City had turned the game against Southampton and the gap would have been just three points going in to Sunday.

I believe that last gasp winner has put a few thoughts in to Peps head he may not have had had the gap been just 3 points and not 6. If it's just 3 points I think City go all out, go for the win and go top before the international break. If they get a draw or get caught out then the gap is at worse 6 points if not three or zero. But with a 6 point lead they will not want to be as gung hoe as if it's a draw its 6 points if they loose its 9. That is huge. We have never had a lead that big over them this early on and Pep knows it . City will attack that's for sure but how much are they willing to gamble during the game now that gap remains at 6.

That win last weekend and maintaing that 6 point lead was vital as now what ever happens we will be top come the international break, City will want it to be 3 points, will settle for 6 but I don't think they can afford it to be 9. We will win Sunday and that gap will start looking like a bit of a chasm, especially as City know they will not be able to loose again before we visit thier place in April. I can't wait as I think we will see something special on Sunday, that win last weekend could be bigger and have more of an effect on Sundays game than people perhaps realise.

1.) 06 Nov 2019 21:16:21
If there was a game to start a run of clean sheets then this would be it. We are conceding in every game not from worldies but from simple mistakes. This has to stop against city if we want anything out of the game.
I am praying we put in one of those “blow a team away” performances and show them that we are here to stay at the top of the pile 🙏🏼.

2.) 06 Nov 2019 22:03:28
The Sunday game maybe a whole lot easier now .

3.) 06 Nov 2019 23:14:46
City will be going all out for a win regardless of last weekend. Why wouldn't they?

4.) 07 Nov 2019 03:27:25
the 0-0 at Anfield last year shows why. City will not want to fall 9 points behind but at the same time will be eager to cut it to 3. Pep has to find a balance. I think we will look to take them on the counter but Pep needs to be wary not to commit too many bodies forward. Very excited for this weekends fixture.

5.) 07 Nov 2019 13:19:21
Jurgen has a habit of beating Pep teams, why else do you think he was thinking/ talking about Liverpool straight after the Saints game. He is and will be really worried with the caliber of defenders he has at the moment and possibly not having his first choice keeper.

Go for it!

6.) 07 Nov 2019 22:53:59
OP, you make valid points, of course. For me, City can go in there saying, "We try to win BUT we best not lose". Klopp may be thinking the same thing as well, who knows? I say this cos draw is a good result for us either way and does not work for City cos based on the late show at Villa, they may not see where we drop points anywhere on the horizon esp. if they continue to leak goals during their horrid schedule coming up. IMO in big games like this esp. since we have a healthy lead, do all you can to win BUT if you can't win the game, DON'T LOSE IT. This early in the season, that will a psychological blow to our boys and a shot an on the arm for City.



18 Oct 2019 21:22:34
So as 1630 on Sunday ticks ever closer (I am on nights saturday and sunday so I hope we win or I will be a right delight on sunday night) I was thinking. There has been a lot said about the game. How it could be the easiest win we have had at old Trafford since that 4-1 game several years ago, how no punit would put any of thier team in the combined 11 and United are out of form, out of confidence and there for the taking. However last season we were confident and drew 0-0. Different circumstances I know, different type of game and no where near as big a gap at the top to rest back on. But it was a poor game and United will take a poor game this season as 0-0 may be seen as a good result for them.

Let's not forget this average United team have played two of the top six this season I think. Beating Chelsea 4-0 and drawing 1-1 with Arsenal. So they have not lost a game against any top six team as yet. Look I know we are flying and they are struggling and I really feel if we get a goal or two in the first half hour it could be a very comfortable evenings work but it is United, it is Old Trafford and anything could happen. I remeber a game in the mid 80s where United had a team that was mostly full of players no one can remeber now, their midfield was unremarkable and we had that great team of that era, and we lost 3-0. This season United are not scoring freely and struggling to make chances but on the other hand I can't remeber a game where they were beaten by 3 or 4 . They are a solid mid table team at present, much like Burnley and will not give away to many goals . I would love 4-0 or similar but the reality may be a scrappy 1-0 win and I will go to work happy.

1.) 18 Oct 2019 21:43:07
The danger is that the media and a fair whack of their fans are writing their season off, and that, and the fact that it's Liverpool, could make them really dig in and fight for it.

We're going with everything to lose. We're not just being tipped to beat them, we're being tipped to beat them easily. A 1-0 to us would be deemed a disappointing performance by some pundits, imo. On paper we should beat them easily, I've just hammered their squad on the Match Posts page. But as tired hack pundits like to tell you ad infinitum, the game isn't played on paper.

Mentality is huge in this game. If we get complacent and they turn up and have a bit of edge about them, we could be in trouble.

And they can field a pacey front 3 if Martial is fit to start and will be a danger on the counter. It's not a pacey front 3 that's shown a lot of end product, but if we over-commit, they could still get in behind and turn our defence.

Klopp has to manage this game very carefully. Luckily, he's kinda good at this football manager lark, so despite the forgoing, I am still confident.

2.) 19 Oct 2019 00:00:13
I agree with much of what ye say but I think we are focusing far too much worry on results that happened in past years when they hold little relevance to this current fixture. The tide has turned in the last 2 years, we now go to OT as favourites so let's bask in that and believe in the players to show we're a far superior team . Of course this game could be a tough outing like any other PL game so often is. But klopp and the players will be fully focused.

Us fans have the right to be in the highest confidence we've ever felt over last 30 years going into this fixture and that should be relished. Wether we win 1-0 scrappy or smash them we will be delighted with the 3 points, maximum points is all that matters.

3.) 19 Oct 2019 02:20:14
When United were in their pomp, and we were off the pace, we still really got ourselves up for those games and, on a number of occasions, won, despite being the lesser side on paper. Being the under dog is sometimes a good thing for a team as it takes the pressure off - United may benefit from that, i'd be very wary of talking us up smashing them. These games are never cut and dried, and I doubt this will be any different.

4.) 19 Oct 2019 07:33:07
End of the day. If we turn up like we can, it won’t matter how “up for it” Utd are, or how ugly they try to make the game, we win.

The only thing that can stop us from getting a result there, is us.

5.) 19 Oct 2019 09:35:10
We went there to Draw last year. I would rather drop points trying to win than settling for evens.

6.) 19 Oct 2019 09:45:05
I personally feel that this the biggest game so far this season and it won’t be a walk over. I can see a very cagy game happening. It would be massive to get a win and move onto the CL game especially with the 2 week break we’ve just had.
I will have everything crossed. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼.

7.) 19 Oct 2019 11:42:04
I can only imagine it being a really cagey and frustrating game with 1 or 2 goals, but if city drop points today that could change, going into the game with the chance to open the gap further would give the lads a huge lift, I just desperately want to see us go all guns for the win, as we definitely went there last year with a do not lose approach.

8.) 19 Oct 2019 18:13:32
I don't believe this idea that last year we set out to get a draw at OT. Why would klopp ever consider that an option when we were in a tight title race. We were hurt and dissapointed after that draw, not a hope that klopp or his players were happy with that. We just had an off day and United sat so deep with bodies behind the ball we struggled to break them down, firmino and TAA were huge losses that day, sturridge was invisible and made it easy for United to focus on salah and mane. Nothing like this settling for a draw nonsense people are making up.

9.) 19 Oct 2019 19:34:36
Went out to draw? We didn’t even do that last season! We didn’t turn up at all, in fact, we were lucky to come away with a draw.

10.) 20 Oct 2019 04:32:14
The comparisons to past years are irrelevant in this scenario. This derby always had players on both teams who could show some character and fight. There was always carragher, hyypia, gerrard, kuyt, suarez type personalities who would battle hard, even in our poorest spells. I see no strong personalities in United's 11 tomorrow and even more damning is the fact their manager is a dead man walking who looks completely out of ideas and has a squad of players who have shown hardly any form or confidence in the last 25 games. This isn't just an underdog vs favourite. This is an injury hit team who can't create any attacking threat, look less than solid at the back, have a spineless midfield and the man who's in charge of changing all their problems has zero clue how to tactically use his players. Even in the last couple of years a poor United still had the likes of Valencia, Herrera, fellaini who would scrap and make it awkward for us.
The likes of Fred, Pereira, lingaard, or massively declined ageing options matic and mata as their midfield picks suggests enough for me to see it very unlikely that they can pull a strong battling team performance out of nowhere whilst also causing us threat in attack. In the last 6 months they've never once looked like turning a corner or fighting together as a team when they really needed a perfornance.

If a good manager who had tactical knowledge, good man management skills or any sort of a strong personality was in charge I'd hold a bit more caution. Mourinho could always pull out an ugly but effective game plan from his players when demanded. De gea out, pogba their only form of potential midfield threat is out. Rashford has never been lower in confidence. Players just coming back into team from injuries.

This is a manchester united side whos captain is Ashley young and whos manager has shown the world how inept he is at this level.

I just can't see where they can pull a team performance from when there's not even going to be 1 strong leader in their team. We're fully fit and firing and I've no doubts that we will be up for this big time in which case we will be too much for them.
Stop these pointless comparisons to previous years as this current situation is miles and miles away from any relevance to past fixtures.

11.) 20 Oct 2019 05:17:30
I don't know what game people were watching to think we went out there to get a draw. Does nobody remember how we were running them ragged for the first 25 or 30 mins, they were hanging on and it seemed inevitable that we were going to break them down. Then firmino got injured and sturridge halted all the pace in our attacks and his positional play always suffocated mane and salah.

Remember United were on a 8 game win streak with confidence. Rashford was the league's in form striker.

We were in a tough period, heavy schedule including playing bayern twice either side of United. Gomez, lovren, TAA weren't available, which meant we were forced to play fabinho, gini, Henderson, Milner every game 3 times a week. Matip was yet to hit his top performance levels and we were having a mini blip in confidence with heavy legs starting to show. We failed to score in 3 of our 4 games while also drawing with West ham and leicester.

We were just not playing well and the squad was stretched with little chance to rotate.
We clearly never went out there to get a draw, complete nonsense to think that. We were level on points with city at the time, why on earth would anyone think klopp was happy with a point when we attacked them aggressively from the start until bobbys injury and klopp was visibly upset at the final whistle to drop points. Completely made up thoughts.



29 Sep 2019 18:44:42
Make no mistake about it. Next weeks game is going to be very very tough. Liverpool need to play far better than yesterday or Liecester will win. Love him or hate him Rodgers has a very good side theer, and behind ourselves and City I would say the next best in the leauge at present ( the table does not lie) . We need to be on it from minuet one next saturday . It's going to be an exciting game I feel.

1.) 29 Sep 2019 20:07:26
It will definitely be a tough game against Leicester and we'll have to be on our best form to get the win. I'd still say that if we play close to our best, the three points should be ours, regardless of how good Leicester are looking.

2.) 29 Sep 2019 20:23:17
Honestly this will be more tough than the likes of arsenal or spurs at home. I have no doubt about putting those teams away but Vardy has a decent scoring record v us and he’s got Maddison to play him through.

3.) 29 Sep 2019 20:48:11
Let's not forget the Salzburg game this Wednesday, that comes before Leceister. Klopp will not field the Carabao Cup XI he used last week for a UCL game, so I expect some tired legs come Saturday. But winning becomes a habit after a while, and we're all seeing it. With some luck we'll pull through. 😉.

4.) 30 Sep 2019 07:47:28
At least both of this week’s matches are at home, with a better chance to rest in between.
Definitely looking for two wins out of this week, injuries permitting.

5.) 30 Sep 2019 08:02:11
We will be fine. leicester plays totally different football and We will have more space to operate. They are a ok side but no where near spurs level.

6.) 30 Sep 2019 08:32:34
I think Leicester are a good side but even when they beat spurs spurs created chances without playing well. And but for the smallest offside spurs would have put the game to rest. against utd Leicester had lots off the ball and did not create a great deal. I feel Gomez should come back in for the Leicester game his and VVD pace take the Vardy break a little out of the equation. last season the 2 games against Leicester we gifted them to silly goals the Alisson one at there place and the silly free kick just before half time in the awful conditions. And I don't see another performance like Saturday for a while that was like city's Norwich one but we got away with it. but Wednesday comes first we need to get are first points on table.

7.) 30 Sep 2019 10:08:05
Looking forward to witnessing such an open game, both team's approach to the game should make for one hell of an encounter. Whoever wins the march will probably deserve to by being the better theam on the pitch.

8.) 30 Sep 2019 10:45:40
Salzburg is a HUGE match Wednesday. If we don't win, it will be very hard to get through the group. They are a good side.

9.) 30 Sep 2019 19:07:46
I think it was the away day nerves on Saturday. Shef utd fans are mental and very passionate and vocal. I'd have bet my life on salah to score that one on one. How does he miss that?

Luckily we have a great team that got us through in Yorkshire. It's not just the league, in Europe we have a pretty poor away record.

10.) 30 Sep 2019 19:08:33
I think we'll do Leicester though. I agree that away to them will be v hard but at home I see us being too strong for them.

11.) 30 Sep 2019 21:15:17
Spot on, Grino. LC are a good team and are my pick to break the top 6 hold over the PL (cos I'm watching Arsenal and Utd now and frankly, no comment) . They have some very good players and are always a tricky matchup for us. Having said that, they were poor vs Spurs (who are useless right now) in the first half and had the Aurier goal stood (which it should have done), Spurs win the game at a canter cos LC had next to NO chances till then. Either way, We have Salzburg first on Wed and that is where the focus should be for now. We will take care of LC afterwards.



14 Sep 2019 22:20:28
It's great to be 5 points clear after 5 games but what we can't do is rely on other teams to do our job for us. Simple fact is we have to beat City this season, not take a solitary point off them like we did last season and hope from Janurary on ward everyone else does our job for us. It's going to be a great season and we look like we can do what we did last year and then some. But we must not think that beacuse City have dropped a few points we can sit back and relax, we need to beat them, at least once and we will be champions .

1.) 14 Sep 2019 23:09:44
We need to keep our key men injury free, if we lose VVD, Firmino, Fabinho, Mane and Salah for any length of time then we are in trouble. Look at city today despite assembling a billion pound squad, they have lost there best defender and they were a shambles at the back.
Take it one game at a time, respect the opposition and we will have a great chance of title 19, let's remember though its only 5 games played and how we manage December will be key I feel.
Its a pleasure watching this Liverpool side play there football and I still feel we have a couple more gears to go into should we need it.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend fellow reds and Editors.

2.) 15 Sep 2019 09:17:59
OP, I don't get your post. Who is relying on other teams to do our jobs for us? I'm certainly not doing that. We have never relied on other teams to do us a favor. We did not win the PL last season cos we did not do enough in certain games when we had a bad patch. It had nothing to do relying on other teams, IMO. That is not the way Klopp and the players approach games cos the proof is that they got near 100 points last season and lost just one game (a 50/ 50 vs City) . Do fans do that? Maybe and they should not do that.

We as fans as you say, should be focusing on ourselves and on our games alone. We have won 5 in a row. City have stumbled twice already. That is City's problem and that has nothing to do with us and I'm sure that our boys and Klopp won't care either.

For me, the players and management are focused on each game which is why we have won EVERY game since the season began. Fans should adopt this mantra, IMO. If we keep that going (meaning focusing on ourselves) we will be fine. Will we drop points? Absolutely BUT the longer we continue the this winning run then we will be able to cope when we do drop points.

3.) 15 Sep 2019 09:31:40
Do not even mention title 19 now. As Klopp always says, take it one game at a time.

4.) 15 Sep 2019 11:41:34
It really doesn't matter what we do the title is city's and will be for the foreseeable future. 2nd is ours arsenal 3rd spurs or utd 4th.

{Ed001's Note - didn't you say last season Arsenal were going to be second?}

5.) 15 Sep 2019 12:19:13
Walter, that's not really true. If we win every single game remaining, we'd finish at least 5 points above city, so really, it matters a lot what we do. Good to see you though, hope you and the fam are doing well.

6.) 15 Sep 2019 12:23:38
We just need to avoid getting beat at the Emptyhad and then beat them at Anfield. The rest will take care of itself enroute to our coronation as the 2019-20 BPL champions.

7.) 15 Sep 2019 13:34:25
Arsenal only third Walter!

8.) 15 Sep 2019 15:40:57
We will be Champions. (Trying my hand at the prediction thing also ☺️)

9.) 15 Sep 2019 18:48:15
Arsenal 3rd, yeah?

Not with epic goal kick routines like that one today. Who in their right mind takes rolls a set piece across their own six yard line with three opposition players waiting to rush the penalty box?

10.) 16 Sep 2019 11:51:33
Rugby Parker, if we win every single remaining game we'll finish at least 11 points better off than City ;-)

And if they are right so what. The club can't make signings to say that they have made signings. Who would they sign, if players are not available or do not want to come we can't sign them. Who in this window would you realistically want. It's all right saying 'a creative midfielder ' for example but who? Its like going in to a car dealership and answering "one with wheels" when asked what you want. If the club buy players they will be players that they need not simply a player for the sake of it. It's over a week till that Scottish bloke gets all giddy on deadline day, just wait and see what happens.

This is a great signing. He choose Liverpool or several other big teams. He may not be a name everyone knows, yet, he may not have cost tens of millions but don't be surprised if he gets time on the bench and even minuets on the pitch in domestic cups and the odd leauge game. This lad is talented now he has a chance to show how much.

It's times like this football becomes a family, I know how my son felt when he heard his momma had died, I just hope the club's involved give the family all the support they need if indeed the worst has happend. I hope he is found safe and well.

So City, United, Chelsea never spent any real amount of money whilst they were winning titles, have a word . The only team that has won the leauge without spending big money is Leicester and that was a once in a generation title win. I think the main issue fans of other clubs have right now is this, Liverpool has spent massive money for years and won sporadic trophies but never the leauge. 35 million on Carroll was a standing joke, 20 million for Markovic was laughed at, 20 million for Mingolet was a giggle and let's not forget how people chorttled when we spent money on Balotelli. Well who is laughing now . We have always spent money, just not very well and it seems now we are spending money on real quality players we are buying the leauge. No we have always done it but as the quality was nowhere near as good as the players City, Chelsea and United were buying we came up short. Now we have the quality and we are reaping the rewards that the other teams have had over the years. Buying the leauge? Are United not trying that with 90 million for Pogba, 50 million for Fred, 80 million for Maguire. It's a total role reversal but you just can't see it.

Good job the actual rule wasnt enforced in '05. Dudek was on the edge of his 6 yard box when a few of those were taken! The rule has always been there in one form or another, it's just now it's easier to police it .

Funnily enough RedChester I was thinking that myself after I posted, about the deadwood comment that is. Seems the club has far more dead wood supporters than owt else .
