Question for eds (if you have the time) and reds.

This season we were a third tier team in the champions league (I think) which seems weird seeing as we made the final.

When will it be decided what tier Liverpool will be in next season? Will winning or not winning the league make a difference, and what other factors are considered?

{Ed002's Note - Winning league or CL will be pot 1 - else pot 2 or 3 depending on ranking and who else qualifies.}

The pot you go in is based on European performance over the last 5 years I believe? But if you win the league or champions league you automatically go in pot 1. We were on the cusp of pot 2/ 3 this year so at a guess I think if we beat Bayern that will probably bump us up into pot 2 but a lot has to do with who qualifies.

No word of a lie, I saw timo werner near wlva rd. In a grey mazzarati. God knows why. Reckon he will be a liverpool player next year.

Robbiesline

Or Everton?


2.) 02 Feb 2019 20:43:47
Think he was supposed to go to Blackpool.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 10:29:48
Timo was in a grey Walter Mazzarri? Got nothing against it, but I didn’t know Walter had gone grey already. But if he is signing, then it’s good to know he’s enjoying the sights and attractions of Liverpool already. 👍.

‘God knows why’ 😂😂.

Hi ed02 (or anyone, eds or reds)

Do we still have interest in the young full back from Bristol City?

Robbiesline

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new.}


1.) 10 Jan 2019 10:13:36
i very much doubt they would sell him mid season! potentially one for the summer but i imagine most big clubs would be looking at him, having a very good season!


2.) 10 Jan 2019 10:18:17
Lloyd Kelly could be a very smart purchase, he’s a big, quick, mobile, a good defender and a good footballer (he dominates players who are a lot older than him) . He can also cover left back comfortably as well as centre back. To my mind he looks like he has the ability to step up, the same way Rob Jones did.


3.) 10 Jan 2019 10:41:52
Id take another rob jones alright!

I hope a deal happens for the 2 Southampton players. Seem just what we need atm.

Robbiesline

1.) 18 Jun 2019 14:06:55
I would be surprised if we payed any fee for our number 2, we have an amazing number 1 who will rarely not play. As well as 2 young prospects.

Been watching the celebrations on yputube. Hendo consoling kane shows what a good man JH is. His tears, in klopps arms nearly had me going.

Isnt it funny how many times glenn hoddle (whom i loved as a player and coach) says these words in commentary, international or club; "We lost but we were the better team" no glenn, if ypu were the better team ypu would be lifting the trophy. I can understand that statement when ypure talking about playing a lesser team but spurs were playing us, one of the worlds best. definitely top 3 team in the world atm.

Robbiesline

1.) 05 Jun 2019 10:06:00
I don't know about anybody else but I've watched the celebrations so many times, multiple times daily so far including the ones in the dressing room, I had it on again early on this morning lol.


2.) 05 Jun 2019 10:15:13
I have utmost respect for Glenn Hoddle but my god, I can imagine he is still chuntering away to himself about how they were the better team and that it was never a penalty!

1st half, they had more possesion but I can't remember any guilt edge chances. We were more aggressive for our goal, winning a few headers in the build up and Henderson playing Mane in behind. I thought they defended the situation poorly.

Yes 2nd half the had a few shots on goal but that's why you have a goalkeeper right? And they were more pot shots as apposed to clear cut chances. We had our chance and took it, they didn't deal with our corner and then bang. Had this been a Mourihno team, they would have said that we done a job on Spurs.

I am taking nothing away from them, they played well but, maybe through tinted glasses, I thought we were just more professional on the day and deserved the victory.


3.) 05 Jun 2019 10:23:31
I was chatting to a Spurs fan briefly after the game and he claimed they were the better side.

I explained to him that I thought Liverpool were the better team in both boxes. Spurs were better everywhere else on the pitch on the night but that doesn't matter if you create nothing and make 2 sloppy mistakes.

He had no answer. You need concentration and composure to win major trophies. Spurs had neither. Liverpool had both. A few neat triangles in the centre circle looks great but doesn't win games.


4.) 05 Jun 2019 11:46:21
I watched a replay of the game and honestly could not see how Spurs were the better team. Aside from Gini our midfield was winning all of their duels. Our forwards were deciding to press intermittently and when did press, they were forcing Spurs to go long or turn over possession. Spurs were hardly able to string 3 passes together 40 yards of our goal. Our defence was organised, our midfield kept its shape and the forwards were tracking back to quash all danger.

Spurs weren't good enough to cause us any real worries.

The only problem we had was that there were far to many failed attempts at long balls down the channels which resulted in handing over possession. And when we did break forward, we were being cautious and getting outnumbered in the attacking 3rd.

I thought it was a masterclass from Klopp that he took the best pressing team and prepared them to play in a completely different style and manage to do it so imperiously.

I'm 100% sure if Sissoko hadn't hand balled we would have scored in the first half anyway.


5.) 05 Jun 2019 12:36:06
Spurs had the majority of possession. We scored more goals. Give them a polite round of applause and a Blue Peter badge.


6.) 05 Jun 2019 13:07:52
It’s all subjective mind. If there was no early goal, I’m sure we would have had more ball and not been as reserved. You say to a team, right don’t concede for 88 mins and you win the CL, you’re not going to be playing expansive hell for leather football are you?

Spurs had to come out and play, and didn’t do it well enough. Having the ball doesn’t make you the better team.


7.) 05 Jun 2019 13:15:15
typically the losing team will hold onto anything if they weren't obviously played off the park. I mean, how many games have we lost where we were the better team . . . !?


8.) 05 Jun 2019 15:19:43
It's a useless argument. The rules of the game say the higher scoring team wins. Therefore, by definition, they are better, because winning is the whole objective. If you want to put aesthetics, possesion %, style and God knows what else, into it then it becomes completely subjective. And you can argue and debate endlessly for the next few centuries.


9.) 05 Jun 2019 15:46:37
None of it matters.

We won 2 0. And the best team won. Yes spurs had a lot of possession. But what did it get them? A runners up medal (which btw is something to be proud of. Most players never get anywhere near the champions league and the nou camp, let alone pay for the trophy)

I bet spurs fams haven't been dancing to the shops this last few days!

Eds,

Will our kit for next season be tweaked a bit. In 2006 we wore gold "carlsberg" and trim. Do you think goal trim will be added this season?

Robbiesline

{Ed001's Note - no idea sorry.}


1.) 03 Jun 2019 11:50:11
Do we include the stars on our Champions League kit? I couldn’t see the 5 stars on our badge and of course we now need 6, just saw a number 5 on the Big Ears Cup on shirt sleeve?

Think we should have 6 stars included on the badge.


2.) 03 Jun 2019 11:59:24
No worries, cheers for the reply though.

Can i just say;

I don't live in liverpool and don't have many mates who support liverpool. This site has been a place where i can celebrate and revel in our champions league success among fellow reds.

Thanks to the eds, and all the brilliant posters.

Thank you x.

{Ed001's Note - good to have you mate.}


3.) 04 Jun 2019 11:16:03
In the same boat here Robbie! Especially when we are achieving so much success. It's all I want to talk about!

I try and discuss it with the missus and she tries to understand, bless her, but its not the same. I can sit and read on here and (thankfully) keep sane.

Thank you to all the Ed's for connecting us from all over the globe.


4.) 04 Jun 2019 11:59:41
@c_mathews WE DID IT!

6 TIMES CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE!

Someone pasted here 2 days ago that they had persuaded some sailors to raise liverpool flags.

They were just shown on live TV! Legend mate!

{Ed001's Note - it was bondie.}


1.) 02 Jun 2019 16:26:46
Just seen me Flags, its actually on the Volharding it docked on Thursday the skippers name is John from Donegal and all the crew they watched the game in Temple Street all mad LFC Fans, the pelican of london also docked on friday and i asked the skipper would he fly a flag and he refused cos of spurs crew, me flags are on "blue clipper" times two, "maybe" and "volharding" it was worth it.

The bus tour has started all LFC Players have number six on there backs, and bus has 6 euro cups on back will have to get a wider bus soon thanks Ed001 for mention and recalling so you have not got any memory problems.

{Ed001's Note - I do struggle with my memory but I remember reading the post and thinking you must be a bit posh drinking down there!}


2.) 02 Jun 2019 17:53:54
Nice one Mr. Bond. Mission complete mate!


3.) 02 Jun 2019 19:42:39
Excellent work, Commander Bond.


4.) 03 Jun 2019 11:29:00
Dpne well. Shaken but not stirred (a bit like liverpools defence on saturday)


 

 

02 Jun 2019 15:15:02
Eds, do you know if young hoever got a cl medal. He came on against? Was it napoli or red star. can't have been porto. He played a part, just wondered if he gets one. As some players who never kicked a ball got one.

Robbiesline

{Ed001's Note - I think he will have yes.}


1.) 02 Jun 2019 16:08:03
Thanks for the reply. He played quite well too as i remember.


2.) 02 Jun 2019 21:30:40
He played against Wolves. FA cup.


3.) 03 Jun 2019 11:29:50
Didnt he play in europe?

I believe him when he says that. He was a red for years. We developed him into one of the best players in the world. It has been said that he regrets leaving Liverpool and i believe that too.

It won't be the only motivation behind him snubbing utd, much more likely is the state that utd are in right now. But i believe that liverpool are part of the reason.

Dodgy theory: coutinio, through his agent, generates interest in a utd move. Snubs them at the last minute because he still has love for liverpool. Paving the way for pipco's return.

Already said it but i reckon dembele would be a Sturridge replacement. As salah is not leaving this year. And there was interest last year when Salah certainly wasn't leaving. And they play on opposite sides of the pitch.

Lol ed02. But again he plays on the opposite side to salah, same with sane. Dembele was looked at last year i remember, or there was a lot of talk. Macca predicted we'd sign him.

I think to call the lad "not all that" is way way off the mark. He's a fine footballer and i think he'd be brilliant in the premier league. A club like liverpool and a boss like klopp is just what the lad needs. Too young to write him off. Some are debating whether wilson should get a shot and the two lads are pretty close in age. Only one has played for dortmund and Barcelona the other has played for derby.

If we can sign him we should. I would see him more of a Danny Sturridge replacement than a Salah one. DS came to us as a forward/ winger who scored goals.

Robbiesline

{Ed001's Note - the lad is an idiot of Neymar proportions though. Steer clear please.}

I agree lerchy, that they sound like good deals. Homegrown too.

They may seem underwhelming to some but so did Andy Robertson and Aoc. If klopp and the team have identified them as good targets then i trust in them completely.

Eds, could some deal with Danny Ings be involved?

Robbiesline

{Ed001's Note - the Ings deal is done.}

And firmino is absolutely brilliant. He is one of the first n mes on the team sheet. Our CF didn't reach 20 goals but he got a few. But our style is different, football has changed. Its why our wingers are winning golden boots every year. He is irreplaceable. We just let DS go so i guess we need some more cover for the forwards.

But, klopp seems to like the 4231. And i think he sees that as our way to win the league. So we need another forward.

I just don't understand people who don't see how important Henderson and firmino are.

I also think salah has been a bit greedy this season (can't blame him after last season, everything he hit went in) and i think that is why firmino saw less of the ball in our counter attacks. Bobby should be the guy you pass to to recieve a return flick that puts you in on goal.

Its always been tough since fergie left. Echoes of liverpool in the 90s. It took us a long time to get back to winning big things. We had the treble season, the odd cup success and now two more European cups.

I loved him. Not at all surprised that he has picked up player of the season for lazio.

Kinda feel a bit for him that he missed out on our European glory. Some were given medals who had never kicked a ball for liverpool in a real game. He always gave his all for us. A bit like kyut, 110%.

I think he would be a brilliant signing. Id take him over fekir ALL DAY. But fekir is going to be arpund 40/ 50 mil amd erikson would be more like 80/ 90.

{Ed001's Note - Eriksen goes missing in big games, is slow, and only plays when given lots of time and space, avoid him at all costs, he is not good enough.}

This'll sound weird and ill get a tonne of thumbs down, but i was well impressed with houllier. When he signed hypia, henchoz, babel, westerveld, camara, meyer, a whole new squad really. Unluckily owen and fowler were out a lot and i think we had that german who could head well too. Karl heinze readler? So camara played a lot. He skied loads but scored some crackers too. Meyer was a flop of course. Can anyone else remember some other decent signings that window? I remember it was the year gerrard broke through. Played twice at right back and by the end of the season was being compared with viera.

Alonso, reina mach etc was a gooden. didn't we get the gorgeous luis garcia too?
