Firmino back in training today! get in lad! He's going to be so crucial in the final. Speaking of the final, is it me or is time dragging like hell? I just want it to be here already!


1.) 21 May 2019 18:34:13
I agree Salah, two weeks without football is killing me.


2.) 21 May 2019 19:06:40
I’ve resorted to watching highlights of all the games this season.


3.) 21 May 2019 20:20:03
Robbo seems to be okay as well.

Have seen a couple of photos of him there and he looked happy.


4.) 21 May 2019 20:40:23
Seems very long to me. Was there such a gap last year?


5.) 21 May 2019 21:01:09
Dragging like hell. Glad Firmino will be fit to play just hope he plays a lot better than he did in last years final.


6.) 21 May 2019 21:33:34
Welcome back Bobby!
We need those big white teeth on that pitch in Madrid 🔴
Cannot wait for the next Saturday, i need to try and keep calm till then. it's building up though!

YNWA!


7.) 21 May 2019 21:54:22
Doesn't anyone think that origi is a bit of a good omen for us in Europe he could have a big impact, I remember the Dortmund game home an away his form then was great then got injured obviously, but he seems too perform well in cup games for us an when he comes on or slots in, if Bobby ain't on it origi deserves a shot!


8.) 21 May 2019 23:35:57
Sunday was the worst for me, chest infection and no footy to watch : (
I know I was feverish but nearly put the SPL on!


9.) 22 May 2019 08:35:54
I'm glad there's a long gap if it means Firmino and Robbo get fit to play. Same doesn't apply to Kane though!


10.) 22 May 2019 09:26:34
We are always sluggish after long breaks though. Baffles me why the final isn't sooner.


11.) 23 May 2019 11:00:18
Italian and French leagues still have one game to go this weekend. Plus the German and Spanish Cup Finals are on this Saturday. I guess they expected clubs from some of those four leagues to be in the final. They were wrong.

Ejaria to return to Liverpool early, I wonder if he will go elsewhere on loan in January?


1.) 16 Dec 2018 00:37:17
It's concerning that the word going around is that Ejaria left Rangers, and the Scottish league, due to it being too physical.

Hopefully that accusation is nothing more than slander because, if it is true, then that does not bode well for Ejaria's prospects. Every league is physical and you cannot carefully tip toe your way around numerous heavy handed challenges. I doubt many teams will risk bringing him in for fear he might not be willing to win those vital 50/ 50's.

Once again, I hope it is just a rumour because from what I have seen he is a decent player. A technically gifted young man who, at one point, I thought might get a game or two in the first team after a number of positive pre-season performances.

Fingers crossed wherever Ejaria goes he becomes more settled. whether that be Liverpool or somewhere else.


2.) 16 Dec 2018 08:48:02
Its rather telling that Stevie G sent him back, I doubt that will look good on his report card. The lad will need to pull his socks up and sort himself out as that was a bloody good opportunity at a good club with the right manager thrown away.


3.) 17 Dec 2018 00:13:15
Any chance it was a knee jerk reaction to a bad week for rangers? Meh, I’m a hoops fan so whatever.


 

 

04 Dec 2018 08:19:56
Hi Ed2, was wondering if there's any chance of you doing a sharkopod anytime soon?

{Ed002's Note - Sure but Ian in the middle of three weeks travel right now so it will newer to the holidays.}


1.) 04 Dec 2018 09:26:51
Fantastic Ed2, thank you, will look forward to that.

{Ed002's Note - No problem}


2.) 04 Dec 2018 10:17:45
Wow nice! Thanks Ed002!


3.) 04 Dec 2018 12:55:43
Ed002 will you be including a trip to the North Pole to see Santa on you travels?

Hope you have some quality down time in your time away.

{Ed002's Note - perhaps I should.}


 

 

21 Oct 2018 00:01:33
I see a lot of moaning going on which is fair enough, everybody has the right to speak their minds but I urge you to think about the most important thing and it's we're joint top of the league undefeated.

It's too easy to have a good moan, believe me I get it. We've not being playing the best football, far from it anyway but we're getting the results. Can we continue playing like this? sure we can, it's working somehow. I expected us to absolutely destroy Huddersfield but we didn't and that's that, it was hard to watch because of how poorly we played BUT we got the three points.

I have no idea what's going on in the background, I don't really think anything is going on, I don't think there's any issues I just think for some odd reason we're taking a bit longer than usual to get back into it, we're on what? game 9? it's a matter of time before the lads start to pull it together but even if they don't, there's no complaining from me why? because we're getting the 3 points from the teams last year we'd of drew against.

Onwards and upwards, good things are coming, we've made progress already, trust Klopp, trust the team and believe because that bloody title is finally ours this season, note this comment and quote me at the end of the season, it's happening.

I hope you are all doing very well.


1.) 21 Oct 2018 00:49:52
Good post mate.
Playing bad and anything near the top is amazing. At some point it will all click in to place and we will take some stopping. It’s great that we won’t have to play catch when this happens.


2.) 21 Oct 2018 01:59:14
Good post Salah mate. I knew Huddesfield wasn’t going to be easy.

My concern is how jaded and tired we looked.

{Ed0333's Note - for me the biggest issue is the three up top can’t for whatever reason string a simple through ball or a pass together for love nor money. They are playing as if they are drunk. We know they can be devestating on the counter and as soon as they remember how to pass well be ok. I have no idea why the cohesion isn’t there but one thing for sure is that well get better rather than regress.


3.) 21 Oct 2018 08:19:38
I agree with you salah, i think playing diff style so we don't burn out nesr end of the season, i think after xmas we will push on and see the hard press footy, klopp knows city can go all season playing like they do, so we are pkaying poorly but still joint top i will take that every season till klopp gets his full team he wants. ynwa.


4.) 21 Oct 2018 08:27:23
Suppose we all got spoiled last year with our attacking brilliance, this year we seem too get a goal or 2 then we sit back and rely on our new defensive quality, that midfield is good but doesn't unlock defences with some guile or score enough goals, but as said we joint top we have beat spurs away an got a point at Chelsea which is 4 extra points already.


5.) 21 Oct 2018 09:29:42
We hadn’t won for 4 games so I’ll take a result like that. We need to improve and Klopp knows it 👍.


6.) 21 Oct 2018 13:24:25
I think salah looks like he needs a break. He is turning into players, his touch is off and his finishing is too. I think he is mentally drained, from last season, the injury and the Egypt fa thing. Give him a week off, recoup and come back stronger.


7.) 21 Oct 2018 13:44:19
Are we really that bad guys? I get we can be better but is it really that bad. Remember how well we played when the pressure was of off us and the boys had smiles on their faces. We know they can be better and i for 1 know they will. For now let's keep the faith up like when the Hudds fans cheered the team after they had misplaced a pass that resulted in a throw in. We only just joint 1st place and you can see the effort of the boys. It will come together soon for now let's cheer them like never before e.


8.) 21 Oct 2018 13:11:42
Bang on ed. Nothing sums it up more than when Firmino came on yesterday- we broke and he had Salah right and Shaqiri in a better position to the left. Last season you'd put your house on him finding the right pass but yesterday he just kind of rolled it to the opposition.

I think our attack needs Firmino to play well more than the others and he seems to he struggling lately. But we know his quality and I'm sure he'll play his way in to form.

{Ed0333's Note - as I say mate I’m hopeful they’ll get the telepathic incisive passing back. One things for sure it really can’t get any worse. And when it does well start beating teams comfortably. I think the ball needs to be played quicker/slicker from midfield to the ‘Fab 3’ for some unknown reason we seem to be a bit pedestrian in that department this season and our performances reflect it. Another thing that is certain Adam Lalana is not the answer. Give me all the stick you want but I’m not a fan and he’s not even worthy of a place on the bench. I’d rather have Curtis Jones.


9.) 21 Oct 2018 19:25:03
Completely agree with you on that Ed regarding Lallana. At this level he's just not good enough and that's the harsh truth. I'm not blasting him, at one point he showed a bit of promise but now we're going for the title I really don't believe he's anywhere near good enough for us.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m not sure he’s even good enough for any top side in the Prem. You have to ask yourself would he get into the Spurs, City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal teams? He’s living on past glories and those fleeting moments of magic were absolute eons ago, and if anybody thinks he’s gonna have a Renaissance then imo your sadly mistaken. He should never have been bought in the first place by Brenda as he is what the term ‘luxury player’ was coined for. Anyway more importantly Salah how are you? I haven’t been editing for a while and think I’ve missed a major part your convalescence period. Are you up and about doing stuff outside or still house bound? Wishing you a speedy recovery to full health mate.


10.) 22 Oct 2018 06:41:44
Ed0333, I'd agree with all of that mate, well said.

Ah I'm not bad mate thank you very much for asking, things are looking good, got a few daft dr appointments this week and maybe I'll be cleared for work in a few weeks but won't be able to start until December now anyway as I have a really busy November ahead. It's been a really harsh few months but we're getting there now :) I hope life is treating you well Ed?

{Ed0333's Note - I’m good thanks Salah. I’ve been traveling quite a bit recently so haven’t been editing as much so didn’t know what all you reprobates have been getting up to. Glad things are looking up for you mate and no doctors appointment is daft when it comes to your health fella. I’m sure a few sparkling Liverpool FC performances will perk you up no end?


11.) 23 Oct 2018 10:18:59
Glad to hear you are doing well Ed mate, I had wondered where you had got to! I thought maybe Harry had got you back and captured you ;) .

Yeah you're right mate I'm just fed up of them to be honest, in and out of the Dr's like a bloody yoyo and to be honest half of it is so unnecessary but they do a great job so I shouldn't moan about them.

The worst part at the moment is I have to go and see a psychiatrist to make sure I'm fine mentally, work demanded it and I have only this morning found out I now need to do it weekly until I go back lol it's BS if you ask me mate, I'm not happy about it at all. They're only doing their jobs which I get but my god they make you depressed! I don't like the environment of it at all, mind you, the lady is a bit of alright so that's a bonus. (I hope my wife isn't reading, I'll be dead later if so ;) )

Sorry for the rant mate, I could go on and on because a lot has happened recently but I'll shut up now lol, I hope you have/ have had a great day. Stay safe Ed333, great to see you editing again mate.

Klavan is apparently heading to Italy today after Liverpool agreed a £2 million deal with Cagliari.


1.) 17 Aug 2018 10:05:41
Good luck to him, I like Ragnar.

It would seem that Klopp is putting more faith in Joe as a CB this season, which is good news.

Matip is back in training too.


2.) 17 Aug 2018 12:24:39
If true then good luck to him, I always felt he gave his all and was one of our more dependable CBs in a shaky defence before we brought in VVD.


3.) 17 Aug 2018 13:02:12
Would you think it is because of Gomez or do you think might be Phillips coming through as well as Klavan was down the pecking order any way?


4.) 17 Aug 2018 13:36:24
I reckon it'll be a case of "£2m in the pocket is better than £1-2m spent on wages for someone who might play 5 games this season". Business decision, and a good one, although I do like Klavan, never let us down.


5.) 17 Aug 2018 13:57:16
Good luck to the Ragman, always gave his all.


6.) 17 Aug 2018 15:09:56
Best wishes to Ragnar.
A true professional.
YNWA.


7.) 17 Aug 2018 15:52:04
It seems we'll see Nat Phillip's a lot more this season, if Klavan leaves. Mario is now injury prone; Gomez has a history too. Lovren missed weeks at a time from time to time. Van Dijk has had a long lay off before.
I like Nat Phillips though. Seems very composed.


8.) 17 Aug 2018 17:44:00
Mario?
Did I miss a signing in the summer?


9.) 17 Aug 2018 18:44:02
Hahaha Matip!


10.) 17 Aug 2018 19:59:42
If it’s lovren and vvd first choice and Gomez and Matip second, we don’t need Klavan, so the money as saved wages is okay. Always got Phillips and I reckon Fabinho or hendo could do a job there if desperate.


11.) 17 Aug 2018 23:46:02
Didn't expect to see this happen to be honest. I thought Klopp really rated him.
Good luck to the lad.


12.) 18 Aug 2018 06:49:30
Was he not a short term solution from the get go, think he does deserve to be allowed to move for regular football. Best of luck.


13.) 22 Aug 2018 06:46:27
I liked Ragner. Would've much rather preferred for Matip to go, but with all those injuries no one would be interested in buying him.

All the best to Klavan!

11 Nov 2019 07:18:02
Good morning all! and what a fine morning it is! What a result that was eh? We all mention individuals of this team but my god, what a TEAM we have, a group of legends right there who are going to take us above and beyond. Klopp is a genious in my eyes.

Last season was the first season in a very long time that I thought we'd win the league and we all know how that panned out. I'm going to say it again though, this season we're going to win it.

Nevermind this 'don't speak this early' nonsense, I don't believe in the jinxing BS either, I believe we'll win it. The lads had a taste of success with the CL win and want more, we're playing I wouldn't say incredible football but we're very smart on the pitch and griding out the right results, that's enough for me.

Roll on may.

Have a great day to you all!


1.) 11 Nov 2019 08:24:30
Well said Salah.
The whole jinxing nonsense stems from years of near misses largely due to having a team that wasn’t good or steely enough, even under Rafa.
Players like Fabinho, Van Dijk, Mané and Salah are not only the best players in the world in their positions, but ice-cold winners. It should come as no surprise that we are clearly the best team in the league.

{Ed001's Note - please don't do this! Jinxing is not a nonsense. It is nothing to do with years of near misses. Shanks and Paisley would tell you to forget about any of it and just worry about the next game because otherwise the players' attitude changes. If everyone tells them it is already won, then they relax mentally.}


2.) 11 Nov 2019 08:37:28
Ed, I completely agree from a player’s perspective. I meant from the fans - I don’t believe us saying we think we’ll win the league will in some way ‘jinx’ us from winning it.
If it affects the way that fans create atmosphere at Anfield, then I’d also agree with what you said there, but otherwise no. We’ve not had a team this good in my lifetime (admittedly I’ve never seen us win the league) .

{Ed001's Note - yes it will, because players read social media and they see people saying things like that and it gets in their head. One game at a time. Nothing is won yet and it is idiotic to suggest it is. Far bigger leads have been thrown away by great teams in the past who have become complacent. Forget about titles and trophies and enjoy that one win for what it was, 3 points, no more.}


3.) 11 Nov 2019 09:15:49
we have had far too many near misses, let's not blow it now, the only game that matters is the next game, crystal palace away when the international break is over, we have 26 games left and 78 points to fight for, let's remain humble and calm.


4.) 11 Nov 2019 09:29:23
Salah, I like your positivity and energy BUT pls, desist from such rhetoric. Keep an even keel, stay humble, stay hungry. We have a 9 point lead. IMO, that is just a buffer for us to rely on when we WILL be off form and lose points. Nothing more. City are in real pain BUT they will recover and come after us, mark my words. Like I said, stay focused, stay hungry and stay humble.


5.) 11 Nov 2019 12:30:14
A couple of crucial injuries and things may not look so straight forward. Keep believing but keep those feet on the ground.


6.) 11 Nov 2019 13:35:54
Well King Kenny, when you put it like that, maybe I'm too quick to jump the gun. I do still believe we'll do it though but yes, there's still a lot to go on. I just don't think City will match us this time around. What do I know? Not a great deal and I can get overly excited at the thought of us winning it but I do believe we will and will continue to do so until its impossible.


 

 

07 Nov 2019 07:35:10
The amount of poison online is unreal. I keep seeing so many people happy about how Ederson might not be playing at weekend due to injury. That's not on, I don't even rate him so it makes no difference to me but wanting a player injured to give us some sort of advantage? it's wrong and that's that.

I'd prefer to play their full starting 11 and show them who's boss, why? because we're the champions of Europe and we're damn right capable.

Believe, no matter what.


1.) 07 Nov 2019 08:27:03
Fully agree Salah, social media brings the worse out in people.

I do think Ederson is a decent keeper though.

{Ed047's Note - Ederson is best in the league for me and can’t believe salah doesn’t even rate him. 🤷‍♂️


2.) 07 Nov 2019 08:30:58
I do agree with that other than Ederson. For me he is certainly doing better than Alison at this moment in time. Obviously Alison coming back from injury but even then he is at the same level as Alison was before the injury.


3.) 07 Nov 2019 08:38:08
I understand your point but you got to rate him. He's a very good goal keeper, one of the best to be honest, still behind Ali but a very very good goalie.


4.) 07 Nov 2019 08:41:41
We can only play who they put in their starting line up, I don’t wish injury on anyone but bravo isn’t the same keeper.

Would you be saying that if they’d lied about injuries? I mean given that they don’t have to play without silva even though he was meant to be banned is enough of an Advantage for them.


5.) 07 Nov 2019 08:58:38
I don't know what's going on in social media but surely there is a difference between wishing injury on a person vs. counting your blessings if a superstar opposition player is unavailable.

I for one will have no issue with Utd supporters being happy that Salah was unavailable against them 2 weeks ago as it likely earned them an extra point.

Hope Ederson makes a quick recovery. After Sunday.


6.) 07 Nov 2019 09:23:15
Ederson will probably play on Sunday - he was taken off for ". a muscular problem, not big, but it was a risk. " as Pep G just put it.


7.) 07 Nov 2019 09:46:15
What absolute nonsense to spout on here🙈 First you diss other people for being slightly more confident because one of their important players may miss the game and then you thrash the player by saying he is no good anyway! Lol
Give your head a wobble mate because that was a ridiculous post😂
Ederson is a very good goalkeeper and it would be a huge loss to Man City if he missed a few games.


8.) 07 Nov 2019 09:54:17
Don't understand the hype with Ederson. Im with Salah. The guy is excellent with his feet and a good distributor but he makes a lot of errors and fails to save some easy shots. He seems to get away with a lot that Mignolet and Karius used to get slaughtered for. He is not a patch on Alisson. There is a reason he is the Brazil No1 over Ederson.

{Ed001's Note - he has been at fault on a number of the goals they have conceded.}


9.) 07 Nov 2019 11:02:42
What are you people smoking? Ederson better than ali? Lol!


10.) 07 Nov 2019 11:16:26
Alli far better than Ederson no doubt, but Ederson still a very decent keeper and much better than Bravo . I think even Walker might be better than Bravo.


11.) 07 Nov 2019 12:00:44
If they play the 2nd keeper, Bravo, we should shoot from the half way line!

Lets be honest, preferring Bravo to start is natural, it is not wishing bad on Ederson, it is just that Bravo is great.

I bet many City fans would be happy if Mane had picked up an injury. Its natural, not nasty.

That said, I have no idea what goes on on Twitter, I have more important things in life than to look at that.


12.) 07 Nov 2019 13:23:19
A lot of hyperboles here.

Ederson is not a poor keeper but there is a reason Alisson is number one for Brazil, I would say Ederson is better with his feet but Alisson isn't exactly poor in that department and is superior in all other departments.


13.) 07 Nov 2019 13:34:20
We all know Ederson is fit and ready to go, Pep mind games at it's best. Almost gave him headache after Bravo red card tho. But yeah let's be honest. Ederson doing well and not showing any sign of injuri pulled out at HF.?


14.) 07 Nov 2019 12:50:21
ed047 I think with the ball at his feet Ederson is in a class of his own but at shot stopping and the reading of the game he is nowhere near at the level of Alisson it helps. That most teams believe the hype about city and don't even have a go at them look at Villa the other week against them did not even try to attack them. And Palace the week before that they did not have a CB on the pitch and I don't know how late they left it to bring Benteke on might not be the best forward in the world but he would win nearly ball in the air against them.

{Ed047's Note - don’t get me wrong grino I think Allison is awesome as does my Liverpool supporting wife but I don’t think that’s anything to do with his goal keeping ability! 🤷‍♂️

Personally just love watching Ederson play and was amazed someone wouldn’t even rate him.


15.) 07 Nov 2019 14:41:50
One of many reasons I don't use any social media. I do have a Facebook account though, but it is just for me to use to login into my tinder account :P.


16.) 07 Nov 2019 14:51:00
PC crap. Unless they r wishing him serious illness or injury I don't see anything wrong with it, anyway Bravo was motm vs us last time so makes no difference to me who's in goals for them.


17.) 07 Nov 2019 19:59:06
Ederson brings a lot of confidence to the way City play. Did you see how nervous their back four instantly looked after Bravo game on. Personally id prefer city play their under 23s Sunday but they will be at relative full strength so we will have to beat them fair and square I guess.


18.) 07 Nov 2019 21:19:16
But Edison does have some cracking tattoos ha ha lol.


19.) 07 Nov 2019 22:42:53
Frankly, who cares if Ederson plays or not. We have pummeled City several times with him playing so again, who cares? Those posting crap on SM need to get over themselves cos really, it makes no diff. to us whether Ederson plays or not. If we play our best, he is a sitting duck esp. for that paperweight of a defence they have.

As for Ederson being better than AB1, I fully disagree. Ederson is error-prone, rash, has poor-decision making and is kind of a hot-head. He also seems to concede at near every good shot on target and we are seeing that now as he has been at fault for a few goals already this season. As someone said, he makes mistakes Mingo and Karius would get ripped for. Now does Ederson fit the way City play? Yes, and is a very good GK but IMO, he ain't AB1. Not even close. AB1 males diff. saves look easy cos he has great positional awareness. Can't say the same for Ederson.


20.) 08 Nov 2019 23:39:54
Over dramatic post, nobody has been wishing injury or hurt to the guy, . Only a case of him already having suffered a minor muscle injury that fans are hoping sees him miss our game with the dodgy Bravo in place.

How's that anything malicious from us fans, he's got a short term injury that we haven't previously wished upon him, simply seeing the advantage it might give us if he were to be unavailable for Sunday. No need for the drama whatsoever.


 

 

07 Sep 2019 09:53:33
Arsene Wenger: "I like him (Salah) and Mane but you forget the guy who sacrifices himself is Firmino who works for the team, works for everybody and gets them to shine and this piece of jigsaw is difficult to find. A striker who is generous. "

Bloody right as well!


1.) 07 Sep 2019 10:30:05
Morning Salah and all. Well here is my honest opinion lad's for me the loss of Bobby would be more detrimental to the team than the loss of Mo.


2.) 07 Sep 2019 10:54:09
You might be right Barry but you will still need to find 25 league goals per season, good luck with that.


3.) 07 Sep 2019 11:36:23
Yea but when we signed mo we didn’t expect him to score as many. So there might be another player out there who can do the job in our system, nobody knows until he leaves and we get new player in.


4.) 07 Sep 2019 11:47:36
As Ed001 alluded to below, the current system works because of the collective skill sets and efforts of the others and we should appreciate that fact.
I was thinking of a comparison with the Rodgers front 3 of Suarez, Sturridge and Sterling, which I loved. But it was a more chaotic, off-the-cuff system largely driven by a competitive dynamic between Suarez and Sturridge.
It was hugely enjoyable because we never knew what was going to happen but it did seem to rely more on individual brilliance than a collective pattern.


5.) 07 Sep 2019 12:15:39
The 3 forwards are truly outstanding players in their own right, they all bring different qualities. Lose any of them and Liverpool would find it difficult to replace. 3 hard working forwards in a team is awesome.
I've commented on Salahs greed at times but would hate to lose his goals, as Salah, Mane and firminho are equally important for the system Liverpool play.


6.) 07 Sep 2019 14:06:40
Mo and sadio would be really difficult to replace, firmino would be impossible, absolutely adore the lad, a one of a kind player hitting his prime.


7.) 07 Sep 2019 19:46:39
I don’t think the front 3 are in competition with each other so we shouldn’t put them in competition by saying how more important 1 is over the others. All 3 are doing amazingly well and could be argued as being world class individuals and most definitely world class as a collective 3. Can we not just leave it at that.


8.) 07 Sep 2019 22:00:18
Salah and mane never hit over 15 goals in a season before us, whilst I’m not saying they aren’t top class or very hard to replace, there must be something right about what Klopp and the style with firmino is helping them do.


9.) 07 Sep 2019 22:37:40
This isn’t to slag Bobby off as I think he is a fantastic player and when the 3 play together they are the best in the world in my opinion. But Last seasons stats Bobby had 7 assists in the premier league. Mo and Sadio scored over 40 goals. Bobby missed the following games Watford and we scored 5 (Mane scored 2), Huddersfield we scored 5 ( Mane 2 Salah 2) Newcastle 3 (Salah scored 1) and Wolves 2 (mane 2). What he brings to the team is great but I think it’s a massive injustice to make out that Mo and wouldn't be the players they are without him.


10.) 08 Sep 2019 19:53:56
JK23, I fully agree that it is naive to thinbk Mane or Salah would not be as good s they are now / o Bobbie. These two guys are supremely talented naturally and I think they were already very good before they came to us. I remember Mane coming to us 3 seasons or so ago and all we knew was that he had lightening pace and trickery on the wings and could score goals. The rest of his game? No one really knew.

Now, Mane is three times the player he was when he came to us. Same with Salah. He was already very good for Roma and the whole club (the manager Spaletti and Edin Dzeko esp. ) were sad to see him go. When he started, he was scoring goals BUT was missing too many. Then he improved and was scoring for fun.

Bobbie has a diff. skill set that ONLY a Robert Lewandowski possesses as a CF, IMO. Bobbie is a facilitator due to his inate ability to play the no.10 while being a no. 9. This has helped Mo and Sadio to flourish and vice-versa hence, that is why our front three is the best on the planet, IMO. s for who would be easily replaceable, I would pick Salah. Why? I just feel like since Salah became who he became under Klopp, why can't we get in someone who can be just that under Klopp? Bobbie is irreplaceable and Mane is the better all-round forward.


11.) 09 Sep 2019 06:53:44
Jk23 those games you list without bobby are not a great example to use to make your point. First of all a couple of salahs goals were penalties, Huddersfield and Watford were set up as lambs to the slaughter, we were shocking against Newcastle and wolves last day had nothing to play for. I'd be more interested in the other games he missed. 2 goalless draws with Everton and United we felt his loss badly. First leg against Barca, first half against Porto and Burnley, he changed both those games coming on at HT. He won the psg game as a sub, changed the super cup game. Watford, Huddersfield, Newcastle and wolves could easily have been smashed with him playing too.


12.) 09 Sep 2019 12:50:41
Har I think you’re missing my point mate. I’m not trying to slag bobby off I’m just pointing out that Mo and Sadio aren’t actually useless without him. A penalty goal is worth the same as a 35 yard screamer. The key point for me was they scored over 40 goals and as good as Bobby is I’m sure Mo and Sadio had a big part to play in them 40 odd league goals themselves.


13.) 10 Sep 2019 19:51:37
Yeah you're right JK23 I'm sure salah and mane would still be dangerous but I think firmino plays a huge role in their success other than just assists for example. When he purposefully drops deep or drags a CB wide he is assisting salah and mane in leaving them central spaces to make diagonal runs in behind. They've always looked stifled when origi or sturridge played centre forward as they don't offer that selfless intelligence that firmino does.

That is why I think his importance is so much more value than his number of goals or assists suggest. Higuain could get you 25 or 30 goals a season and someone like Bergkamp might only get 12-15 but his overall game offers more to his team.
Sorry haha I just love Firmino and what he offers.


 

 

28 Jul 2019 18:37:38
Can someone please explain to me why people take pre season games so seriously? it's about fitness and nothing more. A kick about, who cares if we lost EVERY pre season game? I don't lol, it is what it is, getting the lads fit for the new season and seeing what the youngsters can offer. It's really quite simple but many look into it far too much.


1.) 28 Jul 2019 18:59:33
I get your thoughts Salah and tbh the results don’t really matter although having said that it’s better to win the games than loose. I get it’s about fitness and seeing what the youngsters can do but on the evidence over last 4 games the players who have come in look a bit short of match sharpness and some of the youngsters are not ready. Winning games keeps the momentum going into other games and a good buzz in the dressing room. We play the League Champions a week today for a trophy, granted not a massive trophy to some but again one I want us to win.


2.) 28 Jul 2019 19:01:08
Fair enough but you should still be able to pass the ball 5 yards to a red shirt. People paid good money to watch that today and many of our players were completley sh1t. A few shots would of been nice for the crowd don't you think?

As you have never even been to a game, you never take the fans view into account.


3.) 28 Jul 2019 18:55:45
I would say its fairly important, this late into the preseason, we have something like 200 games to play next season, with the club world cup, the 2 cups and champions league.
We are going to have to rely on the bench and back up players, so this is probably the only chance they'll get when the season starts in like a week!


4.) 28 Jul 2019 18:55:56
You get into a habit of losing the same as you get into a habit of winning.


5.) 28 Jul 2019 18:57:54
It's also about getting your touch right, getting basic tactics in order. A pre season result is unimportant, but a shocking performance on all fronts 2 weeks away from the start of the season is something to be a little concerned about.


6.) 28 Jul 2019 19:04:50
Salah, I think most are not concerned necessarily with the results, it's the way we are conceding goals. the defense looks pourous. Just my opinion though. Overall, I'm not really concerned, but that may be what some are looking at. I'm not really concerned with the lack of production up front. Klopp is trying out a lot of youngsters and I think they've done pretty well overall. The goals weren't there, but they created opportunities and with more game time, they will produce. Mignolet was, well Mignolet so I do agree that an upgrade may be worth looking at for a backup to Alisson. I'm not with the group of fans who think we need a "creative" midfielder. I like our midfield overall. I do think we need some help in the back though. Just my point of view for what it's worth.


7.) 28 Jul 2019 19:10:54
Personally I think results don’t matter in pre season but performances do. Results only matter to suite people’s arguments. If we had beaten Napoli today then it would have mattered. Because we didn’t the result doesn’t.


8.) 28 Jul 2019 19:40:15
I have seen teams go unbeaten in pre season in the past, then lose 4 or 5 in a row when the league starts. We have also witnessed some players being outstanding in pre season then struggling for Liverpool, Grujic did well recently but it all counted for nothing.

Just see the difference when we play Norwich and the result matters. I am not interested in the pointless match next week either.


9.) 28 Jul 2019 19:41:10
My main point is that you should tend to set your team up how you want to start your season, and our front three (admittedly our main three aren't available) should not be playing together. We can't start the Norwich game with Gini, Origi and Ox up front. It simply doesn't work.

Lyon is the last chance that Klopp has to tinker his starting front three until the big guns return. I'm hoping he starts with Origi, Brewster and Wilson. And that it works, because we need it until Mane, Firmino and Salah return.

I'm not arsed about the result, but the performance from the front three was woeful, and shows no sign of ever really working.


10.) 28 Jul 2019 19:44:00
Salah I didn't know what you meant until I scrolled down enough to see all the posters freaking out. Lol
Of course these results matter not, it's fluidity and sharpness we're looking for and if anything these games make us aware of whatever issues might be lacking within the team/ squad. And I don't mean signings, I mean things to work on in training and get sorted as a group.
If anything, I would argue that it's actually kinda better to get beaten (by good teams) in these preseason games as preparation for the real thing.


11.) 28 Jul 2019 19:46:30
I’ve seen no one who can stand in for any of our front 3 preseason friendly or not! Mingo might be rusty but he’s still dirt!


12.) 28 Jul 2019 19:20:44
Mark since when have I never been to a game? what are you talking nonsense for again? I thought you'd of learnt your lesson the many times you've failed in the past, if you're going to come at me mate atleast state facts. My god, please continue mate, you continuously make yourself look stupid, my 12 year old speaks more sense. Scooby doo is less confused than you.

Fair points by the rest of you.


13.) 28 Jul 2019 19:21:23
"200 games" in the up coming season. That's a bit of an over reaction.


14.) 28 Jul 2019 19:32:12
Id rather not start the season losing 4+ 0 to Man city. Unless we improve 100% in one week, that is what we're in for. Results haven't mattered but we've been easily picked through so far. I'll say again, only one week till we play City.


15.) 28 Jul 2019 19:52:41
Whatever the result is, it would not have mattered as that is not the goal of preseason games. Even performances. It does not matter to a certain extent cos each manager puts things into the preparation for such games in order to see what they want to see based on the tactics and systems that they could like to see implemented in real game situations. Now, Klopp is trying diff. things and diff. combos. in all three phases of the team as in defence, midfield attack and if Klopp did not see what he wanted to see today then, the result doesn't matter. The issues are still there.

Also, do people even realize that you can play badly in a preseason game and still win? I haven seen that many, many times and had that happened today, I would not have been impressed cos I know the result is not what anyone who knows a thing about football would be looking at.

Personally, I'm not bothered about the game and the result cos I'm sure Klopp and his staff and players have gathered the info they need for the next game. As for the Community Shield, it is nothing but another glorified preseason friendly. Nothing more, Nothing less. Regardless of who wins, it won't mean a damn thing going forward for either team. No markers will be laid. Nothing BUT I'm sure people will be ready with their well-sharpened knives should we Heaven's forbid, we lose a glorified preseason game.


16.) 28 Jul 2019 20:03:37
I suppose after losing only one league game last season and our defence being so strong, it’s all rather a shock to see so many goals being conceded in defeats.
There’s an awful lot of games to come so I suppose it’s better to start slowly.
I still think that there’s room for a top player to come in though, we’re not that good yet.


17.) 28 Jul 2019 20:11:28
Just a bit of a joke Everest! glad you got it.


18.) 28 Jul 2019 20:20:25
Only thing you can draw from these games is we are heavily reliant on our front three who wouldn't be! ) and Alisson in net. If we are ever in a position where we are without the front three I'd panic! First game we can draw any conclusion from is Norwich. Keep the faith boys these are our champions of Europe after all.


19.) 28 Jul 2019 20:32:23
1 poster said that mate and he failed dramatically so bringing that up is irrelevant lol so you really want me to post the news article? When I get home ill be happy to. Just let me know, I'm happy to make you look stupid for how many times now? Yeah, I've forgot too.

I don't always agree with Eds opinion at all mate, he knows his stuff but we've not always agreed. Tell me one time please, just one time, that I've had an opinion and Ed1 has had one so i've then changed mine? I await for your reply but you're one of them, can't ever back yourself up mate.

I didn't post the above because of what Ed has said, I have always said the same about pre season games, if you read posts you'd know this.

Now, stop spouting nonsense and get facts right before you continue because you're making your self look silly. One day you young ones might learn to engage brain before mouthing off. Still didn't answer my question did you? Laughable.


20.) 28 Jul 2019 20:23:24
I wish people wouldn’t say that the Community Shield doesn’t matter though.
Back in the day I can barely remember us losing one.

{Ed025's Note - i remember keegan and bremner fighting in one juicer which made it interesting, it means very little nowadays but i suppose if your that desperate for a trophy you should go all out to win it mate.. :)


21.) 28 Jul 2019 20:50:30
i don't understand the shots at one another. Salah started a legitimate post. Why take a shot? I get that this is a banter site, but the vitriol is of no value at all. All opinion should be respected, but the cruelty at some of the responses are very sad. No wonder some of the Eds get fed up at times.


22.) 28 Jul 2019 20:49:27
Winning gives confidence to players and supporters, Losing gives doubt/ self doubt to players and supporters. All the players would of wanted to win these games so will probably be feeling down about the results. Then there's the players that wanted to impress that will feel that they haven't and missed a chance.


23.) 28 Jul 2019 21:25:52
ashy77 so we should have planned our pre-season games against sub-standard teams like Gilligham, Yeovil, Forest Green and Man Utd?

Klopp has already stated that he planned for these games to be tough for a reason.


24.) 28 Jul 2019 21:26:42
I mean we've had some excellent preseasons over the years and our PL count is still zero, winning preseason wins you nothing.


25.) 28 Jul 2019 21:50:13
Charity Shield might be a damp squid trophy but it’s a day out at Wembley for our supporters! We’ve not exactly been blessed in that dept recently.


26.) 28 Jul 2019 22:41:09
when we win in pre-season - ooooh we are looking good

when we lose - it's only pre-season

the reality is a bit of both, but I would focus more on the performances rather than the results. We look a step behind where we could be performance wise at this stage but there isn't too much we can do about that now really.


27.) 28 Jul 2019 22:58:34
The one thing to remember is sometimes you can learn more from your mistakes, players won't be afforded by klopp to be complacent when season starts. Also remember allison salah firmino return tomorrow. Our likely front 3 against Norwich will be salah firmino and origi. Fully fit defence, ox and wiji will be options for midfield instead of playing as forwards. We are overreacting with worry. People fearing city next sunday who have aguero Jesus ederson fernandinho otamendi mahrez also just returning. Let's not panic, take the positives. Brewster and origi gaining confidence, larrouci looking bright, AOC and Gomez getting minutes under their belt. Shaq and keita back training, no major players injured aside from clyne. Let's be optimistic guys.

{Ed0333's Note - I love this post Har, some much needed perspective on this site which seems to be lacking recently. Yes everyone wants new shiny signings me included but we have a girthy squad and need to sell before we buy. Also we have renewed lots of contracts for first team players which is a super expensive cost. Furthermore some like Lalana is on £100k plus a week and plays very little do you think it’s feasible to sign players on high wages for them not to play? This ain’t Man City people. Maybe it’s time for the kids to stake their claim. Brewster & Larouci take a bow?


28.) 29 Jul 2019 03:11:19
Yeah agree completely ed. Lallana has not been needed for 2 seasons now, with ox back he's even more surplus so he wouldn't even need to be replaced if sold. Brewster and larrouci/ Lewis would for sure be smart options. Used instead of sturridge and Moreno they can only be an improvement and also much less in wages that sturridge and Moreno had. The likes of lallana and clyne could be moved on next to save on paying big wages for players who are not needed. Sturridge lallana clyne Moreno probably costing 350-400k a week for last 4 or 5 years. Why not use youngsters as alternatives for those 4 players who haven't even been needed for last 2 seasons.

Agreed, we're not scoring enough BUT imo I think we were spoilt rotten last season, scoring left right and center, we're not scoring enough this season but at the same time we're getting the goals when we need them. We can also discuss how we're conceding often, more often than we'd like but again, we're getting them points racked up so imo it's working and we're just fine, question is, for how long?

It's pretty clear we have one of the best starting 11 in the world right now but to keep us up here we need a few things ironing out.

We need some quality cover imo especially for the fullback positions, trent or robbo gets injured and we're going to know about it, same goes for all the positions if you think about it. Hardest thing is, whoever is quality enough to play for Liverpool, are they willing to sit on the bench? it's one of them but I trust the club and I'm really not fussed at the moment, I'm happy and enjoying our progress.
