Good day Ed and Reds.
BBC Sport are running an article that clubs opposed to 'Project Restart' are prepared to play at neutral venues if the threat of relegation is lifted.
If this is correct, this seems telling for me.
It sort of feels as if the multitude of clubs that have been poor all season are not prepared to accept their failings and are almost using the current situation to avoid the drop? They seem to be dictating what may happen next?
What's the point of restarting if the season's conclusion can't be reached?
Have you any take on this Ed002 please? (Presuming it did start again - a rather large presumption too) .

The Juicer

{Ed002's Note - Although much of Friday was spent discussiong neutral venues the idea regarding relegation has not been discussed by the PL. There is no plan as to how the season will be concluded at this time. Everything may well be much clearer in one week.}

1.) 04 May 2020 08:14:53
I thought the same to an extent.

All clubs will be playing in neutral venues, all will be in the same boat.

If the "integrity of the league can't be maintained" then what's the point?

Perhaps it's to do with finances and honouring TV contracts - I don't pretend to know that's what it is.

Everyone looking out for their own interests. Understandably.

{Ed002's Note - The arguement is based on loss of home advantage - and that is proving to be consideration for a number of sides (including two of the top six). It is unrelated to money of TV contracts. But many clubs are not concerned about their own interests only.}

2.) 04 May 2020 19:28:30
Ed002 does the home advantage thing not kind of become irrelevant with the exclusion of fans.

{Ed002's Note - A decent number of clubs don’t think so.}

Media speculation today that Comacho could move on to Sporting Lisbon in this window?
Is a subsequent move for a versatile right-sided player on the cards in January?

The Juicer

1.) 09 Jan 2019 09:11:17
The loan is not strange but the length of time is, June 2020 and that is when his contract runs out according to Talksport. Looks like Camacho is going home.

2.) 09 Jan 2019 08:55:06
Pardon me for but are sporting lisbon and sporting CP the same club?

{Ed025's Note - yes mate..

3.) 09 Jan 2019 09:54:48
Is he getting a new contract or are we effectively releasing him?

4.) 09 Jan 2019 11:53:52
I would a assume he will sign a new contract before heading out!



15 Oct 2018 20:40:37
Is Mane injured whilst out on international duty as well now?
Broken thumb?

The Juicer

1.) 16 Oct 2018 13:06:23
Surely he could play with a broken thumb?

2.) 16 Oct 2018 16:55:37
He has no chance of being fit for a game of Subuteo anyway.

3.) 16 Oct 2018 18:29:00
The thumbs up/ down response to this seems a little insensitive to be honest.

The Guardian (no less) reporting that the redevelopment plans are moving forward apace.
Fingers crossed, there could be real progress this year, it all looks good to go if and when the demolition is done.
Only two owners, of four houses, still holding out.
Is that the two buy-to-let landlords that were supposedly going to sue the Council / LFC?
Maybe, just maybe, there will be spades in the ground before 2014 is out?

Well, to top off a weekend when the powers that be have once again proven that they couldn't organise a **** up in a brewery, comes the very sad news of the death of a fantastic protagonist of the old skool game.
RIP Francis Lee.
Brilliant player.

The Juicer

1.) 02 Oct 2023 23:14:01
Always remember Liverpool fans singing to him "Franny is a Womble".
Terrific player and a character to boot.
RIP Franny.

2.) 02 Oct 2023 23:15:38
Sad, RIP Francis.

3.) 02 Oct 2023 23:43:43
He was also a racehorse trainer.
He was known for taking penalties, usually after he'd won them, and my Dad used to call him Lee 1 pen as that is how it often appeared on the scores and results. He was also big in toilet rolls, if I recall.
I wonder if Norman Hunter is waiting for him ?.

4.) 03 Oct 2023 03:55:01
Also a very wealthy man through his toilet paper manufacturing business.

Great character from an age of great characters in the game.

5.) 03 Oct 2023 07:19:24
He featured quite prominently in the book "Secret Diary of a Liverpool Scout" and was much admired at Anfield I read.
His feeling for Liverpool was very much reciprocated too.

6.) 03 Oct 2023 07:51:37
I liked the City team he played in. Joe Corrigan, Tony Book, Alan Pardoe, Mike Summerbee, Colin Bell, Francis Lee. Loved Joe Merced too - great footy mind and man manager. Great memories.



25 Aug 2023 11:42:52
Last Summer's in phrase was 'shiny new toys'. This Summer is 'hyperbolic negativity'. What happened to good old realism? I think our first XI is decent, good enough for top four if we're lucky with injuries and with Endo or A. N. Other slotting in quickly and successfully.

It'll be interesting to see how Klopp approaches the Europa League and squad rotation versus the demands of the PL, as well as the other cups too.
Our squad strength is limited imo and I don't think top four is a given either.
I still see us as being vulnerable.

The Juicer

1.) 25 Aug 2023 12:18:04
Fans have succumbed to the social media world of demanding everything here and now I think its just a measure of where society is these days mate.

Good old fashioned getting behind the team spreads positivity and that's what's needed!

2.) 25 Aug 2023 12:39:32
GGR all for that mate. and I feel we'll be up there or round abouts. But on the other hand further new signings create positivity yeah? We know the 1st eleven is good enough for top 4 or should be but injuries have plagued us for a while now and the squad depth isn't there for me. Beat Newcastle then I might feel more positive. 1 game at a time I suppose.

3.) 25 Aug 2023 12:54:34
GGR - Does your name stand for Got to Get Real? If it does, it absolutely shouldn’t.
Liverpool fans are NOT “demanding everything”. We aren’t demanding “City spending” nor are we demanding “a sugar daddy”. We want our club to maximize its chances of succeeding by doing things properly, and that includes having a well-equipped, talented squad and a functioning operation behind the scenes. Right now, Liverpool appear to be an absolute mess, and are being run by a manager who jolly well knows he’s practically untouchable and is well on his way to retiring from Liverpool with question marks over whether he has underachieved - something absolutely unthinkable even two years ago.

4.) 25 Aug 2023 13:07:06
Let’s go bury our head in the sand again and blame the Tactics

That’s the new excuse, because the “hangover” from 2 seasons ago won’t wash anymore ?.

5.) 25 Aug 2023 13:27:07
I remember seeing Man Utd fans go through this same stage after their massive success in the 90s. They stopped winning everything and all the new glory hunting fans were always negative, even after a 1-0 they occasionally booed because they were used to such huge heights.
I feared this may happen to Liverpool after having all this success and it's slowly coming true.

6.) 25 Aug 2023 13:59:20
Everyone loves saying the squad is good and doesn’t need that much but then when they don’t deliver the big prizes again the excuses come out. You get better by signing better players.

7.) 25 Aug 2023 14:01:58
Has to be some type of joke, without even adding Murillo to Forest….

- Liverpool have spent €298m in two seasons.
- Nottingham forest has spent €385m in two seasons.

FSG are really killing us off, we’ve deserved better for years, yet we’re still getting out spent by a team who could be in the championship next season.

And some here are howling we can't compare ourselves with Man City blah blah! I mean, get real.

8.) 25 Aug 2023 14:51:45
We the reds, that mite be true but FSG were willing to spend 110 mill on a player! Or were they ? the money had just magically disappeared.

9.) 25 Aug 2023 15:19:56
Do people really think we are 'an absolute mess'?
Some of you need to get a grip if you do.

10.) 25 Aug 2023 15:23:39
Skezza11 fully with you on this one mate.

11.) 25 Aug 2023 15:30:00
I've slagged the owners off plenty but this is not all on them. There has definitely been more money available than what has been spent over last couple of years. We have turned our nose up at plenty of potential signings because they weren't Tchouameni or Bellingham.

12.) 25 Aug 2023 15:35:21
We the reds. Those figures are nonsense.
Our wage bill alone in 2 seasons is in excess of £600 million. No doubt promoting the net spend myth. Did you add all the agents fees and associated fees?

13.) 25 Aug 2023 15:52:28
Lots of fans most likely waited the 30 years for the premier league title.

If they’re glory supporters then they’re not very good at it.

14.) 25 Aug 2023 16:17:35
We Are Reds, is Forrest trying to win the trophies at all? Is their wage bill anywhere near ours or any of the bigger clubs? Yeah, didn't think so. All your numbers mean nothing if you don't know how transfers are actually funded. Take a day off, man. You need it.

Hint: No club pays for transfers in full nor upfront in cash.

15.) 25 Aug 2023 17:23:18
Realism? Okay. Realism.

Realism is that the squad isn't terrible. Far from it, in fact. Despite having 'no midfield' last year, we still finished 5th. ie. better than 15 other teams in the league. We bought two excellent midfielders and a third in Endo who hopefully will be good enough to hold down the DM position whilst Bajcetic develops into a first teamer. I'd still like us to get another solid player who can pla multiple midfield roles in, but the immediate crisis is largely solved.

A bigger concern is I don't like our current tactical system. I think creates more problems than it solves. It was designed to solve a problem that resulted from Hendo and Fabinho being run into the ground over two years and fixing that issue with signings, which imo we've done to a degree, would've solved it better than this ridiculous Inverted Wingback nonsense, which imo should now be shelved.

However. We know the club has money from the Caicedo bid (people on Twatter who say the bid wasn't real and that money isn't there need to stop taking drugs), and I think it needs to be invested in the squad this window. As above, I'd like to see another midfielder. And we could stand to move on Phillips and either Matip or Gomez (I'd go Matip cos Gomez is HG) and replace them with one good CB. I don't understand why we're continuing to be so fiercely loyal to players who just aren't quite at the level we need. And our obsession with the 'right player' appears to be costing us. I'm not saying 'just sign anybody', but 5 years ago, if we missed a player we got a different one. Like Salah. He wasn't first choice. Look how he worked out. That doesn't seem to be happening now.

16.) 25 Aug 2023 18:54:37
I personally don't see the problem with the negativity. I live my life by it and I am literally the happiest man you could meet bar Maybe ed25 or Harry.

17.) 25 Aug 2023 19:06:59
Shezza the problem is Man Utd won everything, season after season. We did not.

18.) 25 Aug 2023 19:20:08
LoweLFC nah mate it stands for Glengormley Red but forgot my other password lol no I fully understand all the problems but all ya read on this and on social media is doom and gloom only 1 team wins the league every year that's now most likely to be city for another while so just accept where we are and support the team that's my point what's going to happen is going to happen.

Regarding transfers yea the club are a mess its pretty clear to see but there have still been a few good buys recently. It was always going to take a few years for the rebuild and whether it started too late or not it just doesn't bother me personally.

19.) 26 Aug 2023 00:08:10
Forest should have spent more, or less, to beat us in the table last season.

20.) 26 Aug 2023 00:12:05
How do you judge our transfers, GGR?
By how much they cost? By how many we signed? Or by what they do on the field? Bearing in mind we've only played two games.



24 Mar 2023 05:31:52
Bellingham watch last night.
Not bad but substituted late on with knee trouble.
Do you think he's worth the £120m plus expected cost Ed?

Looking at the British transfer records since 1970, I'd say (being harsh) that perhaps two thirds of those players were not worth the outlay?

And thinking of some of the Liverpool greats, like Macdermott and Souness, they were picked up at around the £50 - 65 million bracket in today's money relative to the British transfer record at the time in question.

You could say it's a matter of timing, both of the above players went into already successful teams with top coaches and got better as a result.

Apparently Bellingham would like to work with Klopp, he's got 3 years left to do so as it stands.
I guess that Bellingham would have a good sell-on value if he did sign for Liverpool. It would have to be a 5 years contract minimum, to cover the period after Klopp's departure and protect his transfer value.
Otherwise, for the price we'd have to pay for Bellingham, you'd want him to be leading the club to glory and match the legends that went before.

The Juicer

1.) 24 Mar 2023 06:14:42
There are clubs who are willing to pay that sum for the kid. Do you honestly think Darwin Nunez was worth £80 mil? HELL NO! Bellingham is thrice the player Nunez is today yet we splashed the money on him coz we had a need and had the money!

2.) 24 Mar 2023 06:36:38
And yet when people look back at whatever the club he signs for pays this summer for Bellingham compared to say a Grealish, Anthony, Mudryk they'd say that club picked up a bargain. This is just the way football is gone, people lose their minds over a £130m price tag (cant really blame them) but the likes of Rice will hit £100m this summer, even Mount with a year left will probably hit £60m.

{Ed077's Note - I don't think WHU will be able to extract 100m for Rice this summer with only a year left on his contract.

And I think a slightly better way to look at transfer fees is how much does it affect other transfers for the club. I mean Mudryk may have cost a lot but it didn't affect Chelsea's ability to spend on their other targets either.

3.) 24 Mar 2023 07:10:57
@Capital, Nunez was worth the price to Liverpool, same way Grealish was worth £ 100m to Citeh and Maguire was worth £ 80m to United.

Whilst Transfermarkt gives an indication of market value, all things being equal, it’s often the case that all things are not equal.

Just cos you think Nunez’s price was too high doesn’t mean it was.

4.) 24 Mar 2023 07:24:38
I think we should be going all out for rice + Bellingham, would totally revitalise our team. 2 players in exactly positions we need. Also both obviously good leaders as both captaining there teams at a v young age, milner+hendo are going to have to be replaced in that role sometime. I'd guess they cost us 200m + we need a cb so your talking a spend of 200-250m. Imo that's what we need to do in the summer.

5.) 24 Mar 2023 07:36:27
The issue of comparing transfer values for players who have had only a season or less time to show their worth is pointless in any case, so discount comparisons to Mudryk and Nunez.
Nevertheless, the market is always relative to the record transfer fee, whichever era you are looking at.
History shows that the success of the record signings is mixed, at best, and weighted more against the player justifying the price tag.

6.) 24 Mar 2023 07:44:28
I know we say Bellingham wants to work with Klopp and I’m not surprised that he does as he seems like an infectious man.

But I also imagine lots and lots of top players would also like to play for Pep and Ancelotti. It’s hardly like them pair are warlords.

{Ed077's Note - will Ancelotti still be at Real next season?

7.) 24 Mar 2023 07:48:14
Top players cost a premium now because there are less of them. Bigger gap between the big teams and the rest, wealth concentrated between a handful of clubs and less players capable of making the step up to those clubs. Same reason they earn so much money, nobody deserves £300k a week for kicking a ball around. But the simple fact is, kicking a ball around is big business and nobody can kick a ball around as well as them.

8.) 24 Mar 2023 07:53:45
There is so much money going into the game and top clubs are owned by (some) people who have more money than sense.
Hopefully the market will balance out one day, perhaps only if FFP is implemented.
Jude is worth every penny of the quoted price, spread over a 5 year contract.

9.) 24 Mar 2023 08:05:22
Worth is always a bit hard to gauge cos it's really dependent on how much he eventually is sold for.

But in terms of value. You could argue that he would add more the $120m value to the club in jersey sales, helping secure CL, trophies etc etc.

10.) 24 Mar 2023 09:57:58
When you read so much crap online about Man City and Real being ahead of us in signing him, Ed001 makes an interesting point, How long will Ancelotti be there?

From everything I've read on here about Bellingham he sounds a very sensible and likeable person along with the fact he makes sure he makes the right decision for him and that he believes in the projects he's getting involved in. I only hope that if we miss out on top 4 that it doesn't effect his decision too much in joining us and that he's the first of 3 or 4 squad changing in-comings!

Fingers crossed we can get it done!

{Ed002's Note - There is a very good chance that Ancelotti will leave this summer but that won't change their interest.}

11.) 24 Mar 2023 09:58:31
Sorry, it was Ed077 who made the statement about Ancelotti still being at Real (Apologies)

12.) 24 Mar 2023 10:56:53
2shoes I’m not saying he would def choose Pep and Ancelotti over Klopp but also I’m just saying they could very well have just as much pull.

Plus it’s rumoured Bellingham and Haaland are extremely close.

This won’t be a popular opinion but if he chooses to go to Real or City then he’s guaranteed trophies. Where as if he comes to us we’re selling him the project of being a major part of our rebuild where we’re hoping to be back challenging for trophies.

For a player who hasn’t won any trophies yet in his extremely short career then this could be a major deciding factor.

It’s all only opinions though and we’ll all know the outcome in the next few months.

For me I don’t see him coming to us but that doesn’t t mean I don’t want him too. I just don’t see it. But it’s only my opinion which means absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things.

13.) 24 Mar 2023 12:29:01
West Ham have the option of another year on Rice's contract Ed077,and you can be sure they'lltake that option up.

14.) 24 Mar 2023 12:31:22
Money is subjective, when you have it you spend it on the need. If Nunez is available today and we have a pressing need in midfield we wouldn’t touch him for that sum.

15.) 24 Mar 2023 13:59:51
We had a need in midfield when we signed Nunez C. I ?.

16.) 24 Mar 2023 10:26:51
Ed77 before even the Clasico lat Sun, there was word out on the street that that could be Ancelotti's last Clasico as RM manager and that was even before they played and lost that game which has killed near any chance of RM defending their title so if CL does not work out for them, Carlo's out the door probably. That doesn't mean they will no longer be interested in Jude, either.

As for Jude, he is and will only be worth what a club is willing to pay for him. That's the way things work. Saying he or any other player is not worth a certain amount is meaningless at this point. Jude will be worth whatever his new club plays for him. Who knows, that could be LFC.

{Ed077's Note - I don't think Ancelotti being at Madrid or not has much bearing to their interest in Jude Bellingham, nor do I think he's going to be the deciding factor in Jude's decision/choice either.

17.) 24 Mar 2023 15:44:24
JK - Haaland and Bellingham being close has no bearing on the transfer for one reason, IMO. Haaland will most likely be off to Madrid in 2024 when his release clause activates. If the majority of people are thinking that (not to stay is a certainty) then I’m sure Bellingham and his family are smart enough to think that too.

Digger - You bring up a good point with Rice alongside Bellingham. Personally I think Caicedo slightly edges Rice but Rice has the leadership factor and is also a class player. Plus like you said Bellingham and Rice would essentially takeover from Hendo and Milner as the leaders in pack. Only issue is money. Everything boils down to money and apparently we ain’t exactly rolling in it. In an ideal world we would have new owners and financing deals for both Bellingham and Rice wouldn’t be a problem at all. But we don’t and according to reports Rice is not keen on venturing outside of the M25.

18.) 24 Mar 2023 17:49:02
Alonso. Yeah your right it lot of dosh and we already have debt but them 2 sort our midfield + control our dressing room for foreseeable future. I don't think u can underestimate the value of good men in a dressing room, nip problems in the bud, other players particularly young players will look up to them.
On rice staying in london I suppose at this stage we've let arsenal get ahead of us as a more attractive club to play for alright, can't see Chelsea going for him after buying Fernandez but u just wouldn't know with Chelsea!

19.) 24 Mar 2023 18:53:15
Digger. 100% agree with you on the importance of a dressing room and those two would definitely set the standards. Arsenal are looking attractive to Rice unfortunately, especially with Champions League which he has been vocal about wanting to play in. Plus the London factor and Arsenal being a young team with other English talents like Saka would probably clinch the deal. It’s funny because pre new owners Rice was an almost certainty to eventually join Chelsea. But with their midfield stacked and his best mate Mount going elsewhere it looks highly unlikely.

20.) 24 Mar 2023 19:53:25
If you look at this forum it’s fairly obvious that hardly anybody thinks the same way. So, seriously, why do people think they know what’s in the mind of particular football players?

I appreciate that it’s a forum for discussion and everybody has an opinion and it’s certainly possible that someone may have (even inadvertently) got it right but - and I know it won’t make any difference - Jesus the daily regurgitation of the same discussion about Bellingham is getting so tedious. It’s not banter, it’s not healthy. Anyway, rant over, carry on….

21.) 24 Mar 2023 21:14:12
Cheers for taking the time to let everyone know what they can and can’t post WDW.

I’ll choose to ignore your advice though and continue to post my opinion. As I imagine others will also.

22.) 25 Mar 2023 03:59:24
Sorry JK - just having a bad day and fed up reading about Bellingham. The answer is that I stop reading the same people spouting the same repetitive, ill informed garbage for a while.

23.) 25 Mar 2023 07:46:46
I would take Rice and Mount if we miss out on Bellingham. Hell, I would take all 3 if it was possible. If we could find a way to get any 2 of them I would be thrilled.

24.) 25 Mar 2023 09:15:19
I just can't see Bellingham joining us. From a financial point of view, let's be honest, we can't afford the reported fee (£120+ m) . Even if we could, then there's the salary expectations (£300k p/ w at least) which again, we can't afford.
Madrid, UTD and City can all afford these sums.

Then there's the pull of working for a coach like Klopp. This is our best chance of persuading any player to join us if we cannot match the financial clout of the others.

Finally, the only time we spent excessively is when we generated lots of money through player sales. So maybe we sell, Jota, Fabinho, Gomez to help raise funds however when Milner, Ox, Firmino, Keita, Arthur are all leaving this summer as well, are we really going to lose 8+ current squad members so that we can bring in 2 or 3 quality signings?

IMO, it looks like were going to be fishing in the cheap bin again this year. I just hope we can pull off a miracle signing or 2 for peanuts.

25.) 25 Mar 2023 11:08:44
We can afford the transfer fee and we can afford the wages. We wouldn’t be trying to sign him if we couldn’t.

26.) 25 Mar 2023 19:21:45
Haven’t Liverpool just spent over £100M on 2 players Vicar? That seems like quite a high spend to me. Who’s to say they won’t spend big again in the summer?



23 Oct 2022 14:23:51
If ever there was an advert for a European Super League yesterday was it.
Almost amusing watching the half time pundits trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
Get beaten off a team that are certain to go down, poor.

The Juicer



07 Jun 2022 08:03:31
Just reading that Salah picked up another injury (or a continuation of the same problem more likely) on international duty with Egypt but refused to come back to Liverpool for a scan apparently.
I know Egypt are very sensitive when it comes to Salah but slightly disappointing, speaking as a Lfc fan of course) that Salah didn't listen to the club.
Another sign that all is not well?

The Juicer

{Ed001's Note - he wasn't asked to come back to the club, just to have a scan to check it was ok before playing. He waited until after the game to have the scan.}

1.) 07 Jun 2022 09:14:35
Ah fair enough then Ed, thanks for clarifying that.
A bit disingenuous of the Beeb to suggest that Salah was at odds with the club.

{Ed001's Note - Salah is at odds with the club, they wanted him to have a scan in case the injury was serious enough to keep him out of the game. He played anyway.}

2.) 07 Jun 2022 09:38:36
Juicer, the BBC didn't suggest that, they clearly state he refused LFC's advice to have a scan before the game, that's all.

3.) 07 Jun 2022 10:10:38
Love Mo and he's been absolutely amazing for us since day 1. But I'm finding myself getting very irritated by him recently. He's coming across as selfish and rather arrogant. Maybe I'm wrong and I'm doing him a disservice, but can't help how I feel about him recently. Be interesting to know what klopps thinking about recent events.

4.) 07 Jun 2022 10:16:38
that’s all? Ha, not sure this is a that’s all scenario. If the club wanted him to have a scan prior to playing it would have been with the hope of having influence as to whether he played or not. That Mo ignored it says a lot imo.

5.) 07 Jun 2022 11:07:42
Stuie, I may have picked up the article wrongly or it may have been tweaked slightly from its earlier form but as I can’t recall that, I’d say the former of the two scenarios is more likely lol. A bit early still.
Anyway, I agree with Faithinworks, he shouldn’t have done that.

6.) 07 Jun 2022 11:29:46
I'm not sure of the ins and outs, but when he is with the national squad, I think the National team have final say over whether he plays or not. I think Mo is just determined to play every possible game he can, which isn't always a good thing. Even if he had the scan prior to the game, he still would have played I reckon.

Don't understand the criticism of a player who wants to play bbe it for club or country. Salah will know how injured he is himself. If he wants to play why is it a negative. He's been a ultimate pro in his 5 years here. Some fans have short memories.

National teams often dismiss whatever the player's club says or offers to do esp. when it comes to players' fitness. I mean, Naby played the full 90 for Guinea once despite the club literally telling the National team setup that he was injured and could/ should not play. These things happen so not too bothered.

We should all know how Klopp rolls by now.
It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest to see Matip's contract get extended.
He's been a valuable squad member during Klopp's time.
I agree with dhfc above though, we do need one or two reinforcements in central defence still.

Yeah I just don't see the Klopps living in Saudi, about as good a fit as mushy peas on tapas lol.
Agree on Ange too, a very possible future Liverpool manager?

Interesting point about the Bayern Munich connection Lee.
But I reckon your comments about Mr and Mrs Klopp going to Saudi is as accurate as your tapas over fish and chips assertion ?
I just don't see them over there myself.
They'd be like mushy peas on tapas, know what I mean?

100% agree with both the above replies.
Van Dijk and Salah are very much the senior players of the squad now, the new Henderson and Milner if you like, so it is pleasing to see them taking on that mantle.
I have someimes thought in the past that Liverpool can be too nice at times, it's felt like some sides have tried to rough the team up.
On a related note, I watched some of the 1971 FA Cup semi final against Everton on YouTube the other day.
Omg, Shankly had that young team like rabid wild dogs, they were all over Everton like a rash (who were the reigning League champions at the time) .
A young Larry Lloyd was not a man to be messed with, let's put it that way.
Talk about playing for the red shirt, amazing.

RIP Sir Bobby Charlton.
A true football hero.
I remember those football schools of his on Saturday morning television, never went to one though.

It's what I termed "the Suso conundrum".
Similar situations.
I'd say Elliott, in time, could maybe operate as a playmaker in a double pivot perhaps?
A Thiago-like role.

He's definitely advanced a couple of levels this year, he's back to that forward-first outlook that he showed when he first broke through in the first team.
These 20-30 minutes cameos he's getting off the bench are idea at the moment though, he can bring an intensity to it that is difficult to reproduce when he starts and the opponents are fresh.
Great to see him hit a real stinger yesterday also, he's often guilty of trying to side-foot shots in.

One of the big attractions of football for me, as a kid in the early 79s, was seeing the passion of the crowd at games.
The Kop, in its terraced heydays, was amazing to see and even better to be a part of.

The spectacle of the Kop in full celebration was a huge part of Anfield and it got to the point where the TV would pan over to film the crowd after a Liverpool goal.
People wouldn't have put up with VAR then, it'd probably caused a riot.
VAR has most certainly taken that joyous spontaneity away from the game unfortunately.

My theory on this is that Liverpool are a team with a true global reach and the GMT lunchtime kick off allows most other time zones to also be able to tune in live.
Eastern US and Canada in the morning.
Africa, Europe and Middle East is no problem.
And the Far East and just about Australia and New Zealand too.
So the weekend midday start with Lfc s a good selling point for the PL's global television rights.
