Ed2, I can't see us buying anybody this window because we're skint. Where is the money coming from for the summer transfer window? or are we going to have to sell big to buy big?

Salah

{Ed002's Note - Clubs need to balance the books - Liverpool spent last summer accumulating debt. They have plenty of players that can be sold to refresh but it is critical that they resolve their squad management issues with HG and Club Developed players.}


1.) 07 Jan 2021 03:31:44
We need to start selling fringe players for realistic prices, and we need to do this fast. Otherwise where is the money for players we actually need going to come from?
Origi, Adrian, Keita, Shaq, Milner, Larouci, karius, Awoniyi, Wilson, Ojo, Woodburn, Millar, Grujic etc.
We have been holding on to these players too long where they are either sat warming the bench eating up huge paychecks or getting fared out on pointless loans with no end in sight.
Very poor squad management imo. No wonder the club's wage bill is through the roof and we don't have money to spare for transfers.
West Ham r about to sell Haller to Ajax. Commonsense dictates we test the waters and offer them Origi for 15 million pounds and see if they bite. We need money for a CB now by hook or crook.


2.) 07 Jan 2021 07:10:07
Bang out of order to include Milner on that list IB. His contract is up this summer so you’ll get your wish.

{Ed001's Note - he is contracted until summer 2022.}


3.) 07 Jan 2021 07:57:07
Milner but no ox? No way Indian.


4.) 07 Jan 2021 09:29:01
Milner is 36, why’s it bang out of order? Yes he’s a great player but he doesn’t play week in week out and will be the same next season if he stays. There’s a time when the club need to look forward. I agree ox should be on that list along with matip and phillips.


5.) 07 Jan 2021 09:55:47
The club is a business now and I’ve no doubt they will sell any player if needed to balance the books and I have no problem with this. Players want to leave all the time and won’t look back. Life moves on am afraid!


6.) 07 Jan 2021 10:57:45
If you can’t see how IB’s message is disrespectful to a great servant like Milner, then I can’t be bothered to even debate with you pegleg.


7.) 07 Jan 2021 12:19:23
'sat warming the bench eating up huge paychecks' Pegleg would you associate this with Milner? Let's give him the respect he deserves.


8.) 07 Jan 2021 13:13:14
So by your logic the club needs 11 players who play week in week out. We don't need back up players or players for rotation?


9.) 07 Jan 2021 13:49:45
I agree with ShaqAttack. Bang out of order to put loyal and decent players on a list of people we should get rid of!

In the words of Bill Shankley: "If you can't support us when we lose or draw, then don't support us when we win"

The message is "stay loyal to the club and the team at all times"

Have faith in the club who won 4 trophies for their supporters in last 12 months.


10.) 07 Jan 2021 14:48:40
I think we should keep Milner until he retires in 2022. When he signed his contract he spoke of his desire to coach at Liverpool when he hangs up his boots. He is the ultimate role model and still a very dependable player in multiple positions.


11.) 07 Jan 2021 14:52:35
the irony of your all defending one player but happy to bash the others on the list.


12.) 07 Jan 2021 15:34:05
Origi - has effectively been replaced already with Jota and Minamino, I love the guy but it's an obvious place for us to raise some funds and for him to get the move and playing time he deserves

Adrian - Has dome well but Kelleher has stepped up well. I doubt we'd get much for him though

Keita - This is the move I'd really like to see. I've always had hopes for Keita but he hasn't settled and injuries have seen him struggle to establish himself. A move could work for best for both him to reset and to raise some real funds for the club

Shaq - Hasn't played much so I'd see if we can raise anything for him and bring back Elliott

Milner - I'd keep him until he won't have us anymore!

Grujic - I'd really like to see him return and establish himself as a replacement for Gini (assuming he leaves), but I suspect he may move on unfortunately.

The rest are fringe/ kids IMO so won't get much for them.

In short, I don't see how we're likely to be a huge pool of funds unless someone like Salah were to move on.

{Ed002's Note - Adrian is out of contract in the summer - he is not going to be sold.}


13.) 07 Jan 2021 15:34:37
In what way am I being disrespectful to Milner? He is past his best, has been getting injured recently and is no longer a first team player. He is on 100k plus a week wages.
If we want to start trimming the squad, these difficult decisions need to be made. Milner has been a great servant to the club but it's time to move on. The senior players at the club like VVD, Fabinho, Alisson etc need to step up and become the leaders of the new look squad LFC will be building in the coming years.


14.) 07 Jan 2021 15:37:32
You can also add Phillips to that list. I'd keep Ox simply for the HG quota and Matip coz I doubt Klopp wants to overhaul the CB department in one go.


15.) 07 Jan 2021 18:22:33
Milner is a role model to the youth can play multiple roles in the squad and also fittest player every pre season he's a example to everyone else.


16.) 08 Jan 2021 14:11:49
Td red, where have I said that? I do t think he meant to put Milner in the bracket I certainly don’t. I think he’s a great player who’s served us well but unfortunately at his age he can be improved on. I’m also happy to see him stay but don’t get half the fans when they’re happy to see the likes of gini leave but cry over the mention of Milner going.


17.) 09 Jan 2021 09:39:20
The way I see it, we got VVD, Gomez to return to join Matip, Nat, Rhys and the kids. I still think we have more then enough cover in the CB position unless we are going to overspend to have 10 players per position.


18.) 09 Jan 2021 21:49:36
1) we don’t when VVD/ Gomez return to full match fitness never mind if.
2) Matip is hugely injury prone. Even if he does make it back for Utd game no doubt he’ll be injured again soon.
3) Philips wouldn’t be here if a buyer coulda been found in the summer. Wasn’t even included in CL squad. Contract up in summer.
4) Vast majority of supporters didn’t know Rhys existed start of the season. Was playing non league football 10mths ago. Not ready to be starting Prem league week in week out.
5) If Philips and Rhys was ready to be regular centrebacks then we wouldn’t need Hendo starting there. And I really don’t want to see Hendo starting there again.

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!

Salah

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?

Salah

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?

Salah

{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.

Salah

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.

This is what Klopp built, an absolute machine, a unit. We're laughing for the future because of him. It'd take one hell of a terrible manager to bugger it all up now, we're future proof with these young lads. For them youngsters to come in with little to no experience and win a cup final? it's unheard of!

Klopp is an absolute legend, this team, their mentality, it doesn't matter who plays will always give 100%, this is what gets us the results.

An incredible cup win, should've been 2-0 but VAR was just the same old as per usual, absolute nonsense as was the ref. When you consider how many of our main players were out, all of the youngsters in, Chelseas team vs our kids, the refs terrible performance and VAR yet we got that win? it's unbelievable jeff!

That's 1/ 4 trophys done onto the next, every game is a final now. Bring on Southampton.

Believe. I think we're going to win the lot, there's nothing stopping this lot. It doesn't matter who is on the pitch and I believe we proved that today. It's the mentality and mental fortitude Klopp has instilled across the board, they're all worthy, every single player.

Let's just say hypothetically, Alonso is considering us, I mean he must be? but watching this lot he'd be rubbing his hands together, he has so much to work with it's unreal, he'd be walking into almost instant success with his management skills and the quality we have.

Very exciting times. GET IN Liverpool!

Salah

1.) 26 Feb 2024 01:07:26
Credit must be due to FSG as well for their long-term view in building the Kirkby training centre which has resulted in these kids being able to fit seamlessly into the first team. All seven of them! We're seeing the rewards of that now.

Are FSG really 'fleecing us' when this is what the model produces? I know we're all obsessed with Chelsea's academy, but perhaps they'd do better if they sometimes played some of them instead of selling them off like cattle. Just sayin ;)


2.) 26 Feb 2024 06:46:35
It’s nothing to do with fsg and you’ll all see it when Klopp goes.


3.) 26 Feb 2024 07:18:34
You should fully emulate your namesake Mr Bean - you’ve already half way there as you’ve got the comedy sorted out.


4.) 26 Feb 2024 07:51:23
We will see WDW, wasn’t no good before Klopp was it.

{Ed001's Note - that was before the academy rebuild took effect. It is not difficult to understand, it takes time for investment to take effect.}


5.) 26 Feb 2024 08:05:48
Probably FSG’s biggest decision coming up in their Lfc tenure of who replaces Klopp.

Alonso seems to be the stand out candidate and I hope they move heaven and earth to get him.

Beyond Alonso I’m not really sure who there is.

I know FSG like their stats model and there’s a few managers out there who have won things that might appeal to them stat wise but we should 100% swerve.


6.) 26 Feb 2024 08:49:53
Props to hicks for bringing klopp to his spiritual home. Oh, wait a minute.


7.) 26 Feb 2024 09:48:07
Salah, brilliant post. Re: Alonso, anyone who thinks he and his fam (LFC fans thru and thru) were not watching that final must be off their rocker. He is who we need and who I want right now. My hope is FSG approach him and that he takes it to fulfill his dream of managing the club he STILL supports till this day. Here's to hoping.


8.) 26 Feb 2024 09:54:43
Mr Bean, it’s been said a number of times that one of the great things that FSG has done (probably the best thing) for the future of the club, is the investment in putting together the training centre and bringing all the age groups together in the one place.

You probably didn’t see it, (not being a Liverpool fan and all) but after the match yesterday when he was interviewed young Bradley said it was a big challenge playing in the final but that the lads coming through the Academy have played the same way the seniors play, coming up through the U-18’s and the U-21’s, so that they knew what their role was and what they were expected to do. So, yes, we’ll see how it goes when Jurgen leaves.


9.) 26 Feb 2024 10:30:29
An incredible game. An incredible squad. An incredible club. An incredible manager. And, what incredible fans!

If ever there was a "club win", this was it.

The "Allez, Allez" in extra time was the death knell for Chelsea. The kids literally became 10 foot tall and displayed the confidence of serial winners.

Kudos to Alex Inglethorpe and the academy coaches. I have questioned the quality of the academy in the past but boy was I wrong. There was the debate about loans vs having them around the senior squad, with the level of PL2 football being considered insufficient.

Quansah's first touch after coming on in extra time was to dribble past Nkunku. McConnell spun two Chelsea players in midfield and drove the team forward in extra time. Bobby Clark was tenancious, tidy and played a key role in the play that led to the winning corner. He also got on Chilwell's pip - which was a bonus. Jayden Danns pressed and ran Chelsea's two centrebacks ragged after coming on and almost grabbed a couple of goals. And Harvey Elliott - what a shift. 120 minutes of pure heart and courage!

The senior players too showed their character and leadership. Kelleher should have this cup named after him. What a performance. Diaz ran and ran Gusto into delerium. MacAllister and Endo put in a midfield clinic and fair play to Tsimikas who put in two fabulous corners. And lastly, the captain. The best centreback we are ever likely to see.

Incredible.


10.) 26 Feb 2024 12:09:27
Formerly_FlyPelicanFly had Danns scored that header, not sure Wembley would have been able to withstand the absolute chaos that would have ensued, IMO.


11.) 26 Feb 2024 12:53:24
I thought Danns best chance was the goal line scramble.

All he needed was any kind of touch and it’s in.


12.) 26 Feb 2024 13:15:37
Ed1, does the fact the first team, U23s and U18s all play the same way indicate the club now has a "philosophy" as to how the game should be played, following the blueprint of Klopp similar to how the legacy of Cryuff pervades Barcelona? If so, does this suggest that the most likely candidate to replace Klopp is someone who has a similar playing style to him?

{Ed001's Note - yes and yes, to a degree. Style can mean different things though.}


13.) 26 Feb 2024 13:37:33
I, like most others on here, was willing Danns to score. He was so so close. The fans would have gone mental!
His debut goal will come sooner rather than later I feel.


14.) 26 Feb 2024 15:07:30
I’ve always said it will be tough when Klopp leaves. When some were calling for his head last season my response was be careful what you wish for.

I didn’t expect Klopp’s final season to come so soon but it will be very interesting to see how much of this desire, guts and tenacity comes from Klopp and how much of it has been permanently instilled into these players.

We have to keep hold of the leaders in this group like Virgil, Robbo, Trent and Ali as they are the ones that can bring these youngsters through along with whoever the new manager is.

We can’t let this mentality drain away and we as fans also have a huge part to play in that. Let’s remember Klopp’s words. Let’s continue to believe. Let’s make Anfield continue to be the place that nobody wants to come to.

I’m so proud to be a red. I’m so proud to be born into this community that can elevate inexperienced kids into world beaters. There’s nowhere else on this earth like Anfield and there’s no other club on this earth like Liverpool FC. Let’s keep it that way.


 

 

04 Feb 2024 23:42:55
When you consider how we've had players out/ injured the past month or so, I think we've done very well in this period. This is only our second loss of the season, that's pretty good going.

We didn't do well today but it's just one of them, it's still ours for the taking. We need to look at the bigger picture. A result none of us wanted but we're still doing incredibly well, it's a one off result, bring on Burnley.

Salah

1.) 05 Feb 2024 00:25:31
It’s technically Man City’s for the taking… points wise.

{Ed001's Note - no, because they still have to play us, so it is still technically in our own hands, as it is in theirs.}


2.) 05 Feb 2024 02:21:53
Ed, bad day in the office you reckon for today? Most players were really bad today.

{Ed001's Note - yes, poor team selection to players not turning up, it was a bad day at the office for everyone.}


3.) 05 Feb 2024 02:33:23
Bad day but these players deserve the benefit of the doubt, we would have taken this point haul before endo nd mo went off for their countries. Touchwood were near full strengtb now with everyone back, we go again.


4.) 05 Feb 2024 05:11:09
A win and a loss against Chelsea and Arsenal is still better than 2 draws! As bad as we were in the first half, they didn't have as many clear cut chances as they had in the FA cup game. Also, we started the second half much better, the mistake for the goal killed it. A draw wouldn't have been too bad a result.

Grav didn't press, but Trent and VVD were both poor.


5.) 05 Feb 2024 05:06:24
Would you put Robertson in and move Trent to midfield in place of Gravenberch for yesterday Ed? Or maybe Harvey instead of Gravenberch. Nunez seems to be having a knock days before, otherwise him for Gakpo I guess. Our attack seems to be so poor without him.

{Ed001's Note - I would have said Elliott in midfield, but I would have put Robbo in rather than Trent, who was clearly not fully fit. Gravenberch just is not getting it at all. He doesn't have the intelligence to understand the press - at one point in the second half he closed down when we were deep in our own half. When the ball was passed away from him, instead of dropping back in (which would have been the correct thing to do as there was no press on) he starts trying to wave everyone else on to press. Then when it created confusion with the others unsure whether to press or not, he just threw a strop rather than getting on with getting back into position. It was like playing with ten men for most of the time he was on the pitch. He should not start against anyone strong. He really needs remedial work on his understanding of the game and particularly the press.}


6.) 05 Feb 2024 06:40:55
Don’t see what grav offers atm.


7.) 05 Feb 2024 08:10:27
It was still 1-1 when the subs came on. Normally after we have played poorly this season the subs have made the difference. In this game the subs were just as bad as the players going off. Just a very very bad day at the office.
The games are now well spaced out for a while and Burnley is the perfect game next up.


8.) 05 Feb 2024 09:08:50
Yeah Gravenberch was the main offender for me. I can see why he couldn’t buy a game at Bayern now. For all his talents, intelligence and effort don’t seem to be part of them.
You can forgive Trent for not being fit, you can forgive Alisson for a rare error, but Grav only has himself to blame for not knowing how to play our system by now.
I hope he turns it around but I can’t help but feel he was a dud purchase, and to think, he’s not learned how to play a system in 6 months, and he’s got to learn another when Klopp leaves.
If Thiagos fit then he gets his space until the summer for me.


9.) 05 Feb 2024 09:16:59
Totally agree with team selection yesterday it was like playing with ten men from the off I really don’t see what Gravenberch brings to the team completely AWOL. Arsenal credit though although they didn’t play great they worked dam hard to stop us. Onwards and upwards.


10.) 05 Feb 2024 09:37:06
With Gravenberch, we have to consider he is only 21 still but I just don't see him improving at all. Fingers crossed we're all wrong about him and he'll crack on but I do have my doubts. If he continues like this he should be loaned to a newly promoted club next season.


11.) 05 Feb 2024 10:24:00
I think Grav will become a decent squad player but he is just not ready yet unfortunately. Elliot should have played but I doubt it would have made much difference. Everything just went wrong and we really missed energy all over the pitch.


12.) 05 Feb 2024 10:25:31
Gravenberch was an unnecessary buy and waste of money. Should have kept carvalho as an option and tried trent in midfield to see if he can play in it or not.


13.) 05 Feb 2024 10:51:02
You don't start Gravenberch at the Emirates with Elliott available. You just can't esp. with the type of intensity Arsenal would come with. That's on Klopp. We started slow again for the upteenth time at the Emirates. That's on Klopp. We gave the game away twice and you can't do that in such a high profile game. Bad day at the office, really.


14.) 05 Feb 2024 11:17:28
Coulred, they outworked us. That's it and sometimes esp. if the oppo. isn't doing much, that's all you need at times.


15.) 05 Feb 2024 12:45:42
Agree Oli which is why I give them some credit cause not many teams out work us
Up the pool.


16.) 05 Feb 2024 13:04:17
Ed1. True. But now if we both win our games until the City match on the 9th of March. City can afford to draw that match as opposed to the other way round. So advantage is with them in that regards. We would have to beat them, which we can of course. It’s just I would have preferred for once not not give them any advantage and keep that two point buffer, but it is what it is. Like I have said and maintained, it was a horrible day all from manager through to the players. All that’s left is to forget today, pick ourselves up and go again.

On a quick side note. I have been saying wrong team selections and players playing badly was what contributed to todays result (banter and match page) . A lot didn’t want to hear about the team selection being wrong. But I’m sure as you have now said it a lot of those that were arguing will now say the team selection was wrong….


17.) 05 Feb 2024 13:28:49
The team selection was appalling yesterday, but it annoys me even more how we seem to always have absences for critical games/ periods of the season. Why were Szoboszlai and Nunez not available yesterday?

Secondly, why did we start poorly at The Emirates yet again? We know Arsenal are fast starters but they remain vulnerable against teams that match their intensity. Once again, we conceded a hatful of chances within the first ten minutes because too many players weren’t switched on. Match them for 20 minutes, don’t concede, and then let our extra quality show.

As for Gravenberch, he was just a terrible signing by a club running out of ideas by the end of the window after missing out on the main target again. He won’t be sold this summer because our club doesn’t really do that, but he definitely should be.

Moving forward, Trent needs to move to midfield permanently now. Bradley has shown more defensive ability in his first few games for the club than Trent has shown in years. Trent has world class quality but he has no interest in defending anymore.


18.) 05 Feb 2024 17:17:06
Arsenal were fired up from the start and we weren’t fired up until the 2nd half. That’s just not right in a game of that magnitude.

Van Dijk as captain has to be doing more to address that once the game kicks off.

Gravenberch is the easy scape goat but for me MacAllister was the only one trying yesterday but he was just outnumbered.

The rest were really really poor. Diaz tried but didn’t beat White once. And Salah usually gives Zinchenko a torrid time but he got a pass yesterday.

Martinelli has Trent’s number every time we play them and Klopp should never allow that to happen again until Trent improves defensively. Sadly, that is the last time Klopp will play Arsenal as our manager and he didn’t learn from previous mistakes.


19.) 05 Feb 2024 18:20:28
"Secondly, why did we start poorly at The Emirates yet again? We know Arsenal are fast starters but they remain vulnerable against teams that match their intensity. Once again, we conceded a hatful of chances within the first ten minutes because too many players weren’t switched on. "


LoweLFC, you want to know something crazy? I saw a stat where it says that in the last 4 games we have played vs Arsenal in the PL, we concede to them in the fist 15 mins in each of those games. Now w that should tell you that there is something deeper going on with playing Arsenal recently. And based on this season, it has been a trend that we are finally getting rid of of late with teams we have played. Sadly, it rared its ugly head last night.

Earlier in the season, we were doing this BUT we would make changes, step it up in the second half or final 20 mins and boom, we win. At some point we were going to come unstuck and well, the Arsenal game was that game, IMO. We got to approach games better and faste and play and coach better, IMO. better overall.

Let's get these trophys won for Klopp, gutted to see he's leaving but can't blame the man. He's a legend for us and always will be. I must admit though, I never saw it coming, got a notification earlier about it and thought it was clickbait. What a man, what a manager. I wish him the absolute best for his future no matter what he does.

One thing what concerns me about this is, who can replace him? I'm sure this will be discussed at length for months now but I just don't think anybody can come in and do what he does.

Let's just enjoy this year whilst we have him, we will miss him.

Salah

1.) 26 Jan 2024 13:58:28
Hear, hear Salah. I don't think anybody can come in and do what he does but someone could come in and do things their way ( different), and still be successful. Look at it when Paisley followed Shanks, and became the most successful manager of all time for our club.

Interesting times ahead.


2.) 26 Jan 2024 14:28:58
When you already have the best, it can only be a step down?.


3.) 26 Jan 2024 14:38:23
With you Salah. Let's enjoy this last season with Klopp. It's one full of promise and hope with everything to play for. Fairytale endings rarely happen but this is no ordinary man. I really hope we win the league this season now.

On replacing him, it will be a massive job. The backroom staff has all left. We can't make the same mistakes United made when Ferguson left. Klopp has increased his power over the years so essentially we are losing more than a coach/ manager here. We need a new DOF in my opinion. A world class one. I don't have faith in schmadtke.

Then the manager. Others have mentioned Xabi. I haven't watched a lot of Leverkusen to comment if I think it's the right choice but they have certainly improved results massively under him.

He was my favourite Liverpool player and that's a massive point in his favour. He would get instant fan support and love.

It's a really big job getting this all right. Let's see what happens.


4.) 26 Jan 2024 15:22:36
Schmadke leaves on Thursday this week Davey. It was announced after Klopps news.


5.) 26 Jan 2024 15:30:11
100% Salah - would love to win the lot tbh and let him go out on a real high.

Replacing him won't be easy, yeah we could get lucky like Paisley replacing Shanks worked out fantastically but then we had when Souness replaced King Kenny and look what happened there - just hope we really get this right, the club is in a very good place on the pitch and also off it - FSG have had detractors and critics but we were one of few enough clubs to have posted a profit when the last figures were released so spending within our means, however frustrating that can be for fans at times lol

Just hope we get this right and sorted for Klopp leaving at the end of the season, do not want to see this process drag on over the summer - interesting end to the season this will be though lads.


6.) 26 Jan 2024 15:46:23
I hope another period of relative stability follows because I'd hate to find us in a situation where we change managers every other year.


7.) 26 Jan 2024 16:13:24
Good Luck to Jurgen wherever the future takes him. He will leave the club with so many wonderful memories. Hope the team can push on this season so he leaves on a high. Would be great to celebrate a league win properly unlike the previous title due to C.V..


8.) 26 Jan 2024 16:23:04
Spot on, Salah. For me personally, Im over the news of Klopp leaving. No time nor energy to dwell on such things cos I have lived thru way worse sudden news early in the morning.

Now, it is time to stop worrying about the what we can not control. It is time to SUPPORT the boys. It is time for us as fans to put agendas and opinions to the side and back the players and Klopp.

It is time to support the team with ALL we have in spirit or in person (for those who will be at gams at Anfield or part of the away support) . Sing and cheer our boys and our manager to victory no matter how the games are going.

It is time to go and WIN for Klopp, whatever trophies we can win. Personally, I have no preferences right now cos anything can happen BUT do I want a PL title? Absolutely. Let's do this. Let's go send our legendary manager on a HIGH. YNWA!


9.) 26 Jan 2024 16:55:40
I'm with you on this one Oli. I see too many people already in distress about our future, but now is not the time to worry. When fat Sam or Ole takes the wheel, then let's all p. our pants in shock and depression.

Nobody is going to come in and do exactly what Klopp has done. Klopp brought hugs to everyone, he took Liverpool from first base to second base. If someone wants to mimic what Klopp did, and take us further to third base, they could take it to second base and become the harassing one. Not sure anybody wants that.

It's indeed sad news, but it is out of our control. Whoever comes in will do their thing, and it will be a different kind of ride. There might even be space to get excited for that. So let's all be rational, keep on supporting, not worry too much, and let's watch Klopp win a trophy or two.


10.) 26 Jan 2024 17:22:40
I think what people are forgetting is when klopp came in we were 8/ 9th in the league and the team was p**s poor it really was awful he’s built the team up the owners have built the infrastructure up stadium and training facilities to be 1st class . With a great group of young hungry talented players almost 2 players for every position he’s passing the baton on when the club is on the up not the decline yes klopp will be missed but this is a great opportunity for someone to come in and be successful really successful dare I say .


11.) 26 Jan 2024 18:09:44
What a kick in the guts. Totally totally unexpected.

Told my son when I collected him from school.
He didn't believe me at first but after pondering for a while he said "ah, we will be fine".
The simple mindset of a 10 years old, hopefully is what will help be get through this.
Tearing up here and I a grown man for Christ sake.


 

 

02 Jan 2024 00:53:07
Well, what a game that was! an excellent performance and in my eyes it was clear we were up from it from the very beginning. This is a title winning side, I truly believe we're going to go on and win the league. City can never be written off and neither can Arsenal but I don't see them being consistant enough. Who knows maybe we won't be? but I believe we will.

I have no doubts in my mind we will lift atleast one trophy this season. If we keep playing like we did tonight then I think we're going to absolutely smash it.

Salah and Endo are going to be missed but one thing I love about this team is we don't have to rely on 1-2 players because we have a team full of quality. Endo has really suprirsed me, he was one of those signings I thought wouldn't work, I think plenty of us doubted his abilities but how well has he settled? he's doing really well, fair play to the lad.

My only concerns are Nunez and Gravenberch for obvious reasons. Gravenberch hasn't clicked with us (yet? ) and Nunez can't find the back of the net. It's going to be interesting with these two, especially Nunez because I believe he can be something special, he just has to take his chances better. Fingers crossed for them both.

A great start to the year and long may it continue!
Bring on Arsenal.

Salah

1.) 02 Jan 2024 08:28:08
I do wonder if Nunez will thrive a little over the next few games without Salah. When the team are playing in and around the oppositions box, he’s always looking for Mo and passes when a shot is on. Here’s hoping.


2.) 02 Jan 2024 09:34:23
JanMolbyviatheCentreCircle, my point exactly, mate. For me, this is an opportunity for all the forwards (not just Darwin) to come out of their shells and take responsibility in games and not always having to defer to Salah near every time as like it or not, it kills the flow of our attack at times. Will they take that opportunity? We shall see.


3.) 02 Jan 2024 22:58:23
I don't dislike Nunez or Grav like many on here have shown.

Nunez isn't scoring goals, and that will certainly be an issue for the fans. That said, he causes chaos for defenses. He has a lot of natural gifts and teams having to worry about all the spots he turns up means they are focusing less on other players like Salah. I don't mind if Nunez becomes a super sub like he was at the beginning of the season, but he works hard and appears to be a good teammate. He an Salah seem to work well together.

Grav is different, but I don't see why so many want to give up on him. He's young and learning. He has good pace, covers a lot of ground, and is often quite good with the ball at his feet. There's talent and that talent needs to be developed.

Ultimately, Liverpool are top of the table half way through the season. I don't think any of us expected that. I certainly didn't.

We get even better with Nunez/ Diaz scoring and Grav more settled.

Cheers mate. Made the leap and found a quiet house in the country away from absolutely everyone and everything we’ve ever known- working towards living off the grid as much as possible like complete recluses. Doing a half asses hippy self sustaining thing. Haven’t actually a clue what we are doing but after living in terraced houses for years without a garden it’s a bit of an adventure.

{Ed001's Note - that sounds good mate. I hope it works out for you, it is not for everyone.}

7.) 01 Jan 2024 13:20:44
Ah cheers salah mate. Important thing is I still get reception for the matches. Can’t wait for Newcastle. Cracking start to the new year will be the points.

Ed2, will the club be speaking to the potential candidates now or will we wait until the season has ended? it'd make sense for us to start speaking to them now but kind of disrespectful to the other clubs I'd of thought?

I think Klopp is the kind of man to be real and to be honest. I do think he's burnt out and needs a break. If it's another reason then I can only hope him and his family are well, which I believe they are, he's just going off the radar for a while and good on him, I don't blame him one bit. He's grown this club into one of the best in the world, it's not upto us to question him now he's leaving. Good luck to the man, he's a Liverpool legend in my eyes and always will be.

Too many of you are taking Walter too seriously, he's having a mess around and always does. I love his input, we all can't be this positive, he offers something different and does it on purpose. He's probably more positive then I am and that's saying something.

Keep it up Walter mate, you make me laugh every time you post lol I absolutely love it. It's even funnier when people bite!

With the youngsters coming through I am finding it difficult to think of what we'd need in the summer. Unless a senior player leaves like sahah for example then I don't see the need to go for anybody? People have previously said a DM, why? Endo is doing the job perfectly well and there's cover who can do it. We don't need anybody in my opinion. I'm sure business will be done but I'd like to think we'll look at our own youngsters before splashing the cash.

I understand what you're saying but personally I'm not concerned about this game, I think we'll annihilate them whoever we put on the pitch. I've got something in my mind now and I genuinely believe we'll go ahead and win every single game of the season.
