Well there was no Monkey business and many people will be going Ape but our squad is continuing to evolve with the signing of Darwen. Sorry guys.


1.) 14 Jun 2022 20:02:41
You had us all the way up to misspelling Darwin! :-D.

2.) 14 Jun 2022 20:22:34
Do you want me to get your coat AND call a cab??.

3.) 14 Jun 2022 20:37:22
No I think I deserve to walk.

4.) 14 Jun 2022 20:38:59
And City are getting Silva back.



17 May 2022 09:25:10
Strange question and maybe one for the eds. I can see a lot of changes tonight but of course we still need to win. Does anyone know if Nat Phillips and Neco Williams are available? They maybe back from loan but not sure.


{Ed001's Note - I am 99% sure they are not available, but I wouldn't expect them to be involved even if they are.}

1.) 17 May 2022 09:42:18
No I suppose not. Big Jurgs got a selection headache tonight that's for sure. I'm guessing he will want as many as his team for Paris as possible to start against Wolves but after a draining match at the weekend who starts tonight? Here's where he shows why he's the best in the business.

2.) 17 May 2022 09:43:22
I don't think Phillips will be registered, and as he's over 21 he wouldn't be able to play. Neco, I'm not so sure about, but I'd assume he's not up to speed with the team so probably wouldn't get a look in even if he could play.

3.) 17 May 2022 10:09:17
Even if they were available (I suspect they are not), then I wouldn't expect changes to be that dramatic tonight. If we win tonight the league title is still achievable on the last day of the season. I just don't see how, in those circumstances, and with a five day gap until the next match, we could make too many changes. We have to win this match.

I assume Fabinho and Salah won't play. Also probably van Dijk. Maybe Tsimikas could come in for Robbo. Milner might come into midfield. Jota to start up front. Maybe Firmino as well.

4.) 17 May 2022 10:27:04
I can see it being along the lines of

5.) 17 May 2022 11:46:26
I think that would be quite a gamble, baz, especially that midfield. That would be both full backs plus van Dijk (enforced), all three of the first choice midfield (Fabinho enforced) and all three of our first choice front three (Salah enforced) . So with the exception of Alisson and one of the centre halves, that is a Carabao Cup line up.

I know we've had a very demanding run of matches, and 120 mins of intense football in heat on Saturday, plus the Champions League final to come, but, other than players who are injured or clearly struggling, I just don't think you can rest too many when the fact is that if we win tonight, then we can win the league in our next match (albeit out of our hands and needing a result elsewhere) .

6.) 17 May 2022 11:50:07
I don’t see tonight as a selection headache at all, the squad is there, it’s a good squad - by common consent our strongest ever - and I’m sure that Klopp will make full use of it.
Maybe some of the Wembley starters will be on the bench in case of problems, 60 minutes onwards.
But hopefully they’re not needed.
I don’t want to see Thiago or Henderson on the pitch tonight at all if it can be helped.

7.) 17 May 2022 11:54:06
Would be nice to see Bobby get a little sharper before Paris should we need him.

8.) 17 May 2022 12:12:52
Henderson will start. Naby only played an hour Saturday so he'll probably play.

9.) 17 May 2022 12:32:34
I’d imagine Allison, Tsimikas, Matip, Milner and Bobby start tonight and then the other 6 will be depending on how the guys who played on Sat have recovered. Saints seem to turn up against us lately so this’ll be a tricky fixture to overcome.

10.) 17 May 2022 12:33:51
Sadly I think Baz is right except Naby for Ox. Klopp is caught between thinking city have already won and us winning CL.

If we make that many changes then Tonight is a banana skin and their players will want to put in a show for their last game of season in front of home fans and their lap after.

I know it’s unlikely but if villa get a result we would be kicking ourselves if didn’t put out strongest team possible tonight to give it best shot.

All great saying best squad etc but this is a PL side used to playing together not caraboa cup against lower league oppo.

Fingers crossed Klopp goes full strength available and we are able to at least put some pressure on city last game….

11.) 17 May 2022 12:35:55
@ RR, that team would win the Carabao Cup all day.

12.) 17 May 2022 12:45:52
I’m sure I read that Mino hasn’t played a minute in over 2 months and I might be wrong but wasn’t Ox’s last appearance when he was subbed against Forest in FA cup back in March time.

13.) 17 May 2022 12:59:30
JK is probably right that the medical team and physios will determine who out of the players who played 120 mins on Sat will play tonight.

Henderson and Trent would be the biggest misses under the current circumstances, but I don't think Klopp will risk them if the physios say they're not ready for another game yet.

14.) 17 May 2022 14:27:34
There can't be any 'what ifs' about City's result on Sunday with our game tonight because we play first.

15.) 17 May 2022 17:41:40
This is what I expect / hope for:
Konate / VVD

Subs used:
Divock / Sadio for Diaz
Sadio / Divock for Bobby
Hendo / Thiago for Keita.

16.) 17 May 2022 19:37:37
So close @bigbabz.

17.) 17 May 2022 21:00:54
Can I have the lottery numbers Big Baz?

18.) 17 May 2022 22:03:52
Taught Klopp everything he knows didn't i.



06 May 2022 16:44:13
Just checked the upcoming midweek games. Leeds vs Chelsea. Vert big game and Leeds will have to be right up for a battle. Not an ideal match to have a couple of days before a cup final. These next 3 weeks are going to be very intense.


{Ed0666's Note - I could crush a grape! Showing my age there…

1.) 06 May 2022 17:42:40
If Chelsea beat Wolves on Sat and we beat Spurs they’ll have a 8 point gap over them from 3rd to 5th with 9 points to play for.

We’ll probably see Chelsea reserves against Leeds then. Obviously is Spurs get a result against us and Chelsea don’t beat Wolves then it would be a different kettle of fish. But I know which scenario I’d prefer.

2.) 06 May 2022 18:15:03
I'm not so sure JK. Chelsea have been poor in recent weeks and it's very hard to regain momentum. Tuchel maybe hoping his side play themselves back into form. Same applies to Madrid. Now they've won the league hopefully they take their foot off the gas these next 3 weeks. Saying that we're good enough to win both games when all teams are at their best anyway.

3.) 06 May 2022 17:16:54
Come on Ed. It's tea time mate.

{Ed0666's Note - 😂

4.) 06 May 2022 18:55:45
I could jump off a doll's house, I could duff a daffodil, I could swing from a chandler 👍😃.

{Ed0666's Note - you are such a knob it’s unbelievable 😂😂😂😂😂

5.) 06 May 2022 19:01:58
Bigbaz you’re correct mate that it is possible to play yourself back into form but also as the saying goes form goes out the window for a final. I can honestly see Chelsea utilising their squads and resting players more up to the respective finals.

6.) 06 May 2022 19:30:03
Meant to say Chelsea and Real.

7.) 06 May 2022 20:14:30
Barry, you forgot 'I could rip a tissue'.

8.) 06 May 2022 20:33:36
🤣 Well in JK you out clichéd me! Note to self to try harder. Seriously though I'm usually the least optimistic person but I really do think we are better than Chelsea these days and both at their best? Give Jordan the cup. Madrid? Easier said than done but forget their badge and history and play our own game. Again I'm confident.

9.) 06 May 2022 20:36:06
Thank you very much Ed0999.

10.) 06 May 2022 21:55:11
Ah crap Greenflash I knew I forgot one.

11.) 07 May 2022 10:08:23
For those who are wondering what Greenflash, Ed 0666 and Barryinlouth are on about - they're referencing a British TV presenter called Stu Franics, who hosted a kid's TV show back in the 80s, called Crackerjack. He had a myriad of little exclamatory catchphrases mentioned above. Others included:-
I could wrestle an Action Man (GI Joe for the US contingent)
I could pop a balloon
I could eat a whole sausage roll
I could test drive a Tonka (robust toys based on building site plant)
I could pummel a peach.

Sadly, he died whilst attempting to actually do all of these in a single afternoon back in 1994.

I may mav made that last bit up.

{Ed001's Note - he was a neighbour of my parents for a while while doing panto in the area when they lived near Darlington. Arrogant flash prick he was in reality.}



27 Apr 2022 00:03:24
Question for Ed001. Who is the best out and out striker the clubs had? The likes of Aldo, Rush, Dundee, Fowler, Owen or Torres spring to mind but who in your opinion was the best. For me it's Rush. Only due to his longevity. Robbie I think was more talented but obviously didn't last as long. Rushie had it all. Goal scoring instinct, pace, work rate, muzzy, I also think Aldo gets overlooked. He was brilliant. I was really young when Rush left but I vividly remember a couple of years later when Aldo left and I was gutted. Same with Robbie. Not so much with Owen for some reason.


{Ed001's Note - Fowler was the most talented, but it has to go to Rush. He was a machine of a player.}

1.) 27 Apr 2022 00:13:00
Defo. Dying breed that type of player.

2.) 27 Apr 2022 00:17:42
I assume Sean Dundee is a joke baz!

Got to agree with Ed001 - Rush was sublime and his partnership with Kenny was so intuitive, they just seemed to know what the other was thinking.

{Ed0666's Note - can you imagine Kenny and Rushie having a 3 way? It would be poetry in motion. Imagine the interplay?

3.) 27 Apr 2022 00:59:03
Doesn't matter. lord origi tops them all😇😇😇.

4.) 27 Apr 2022 02:11:41
Rush had the best Kop song too.

5.) 27 Apr 2022 02:21:12
Of course putting Dundee in there was a joke mate but Bird31 I'm sorry I forgot to bring up Div. No joke but I love the fella. He's been brilliant. All the money that's been spent on his compatriots like Lukaku and Benteke but this man is loved whereas I doubt they are.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think Lukaku is even liked by Chelsea fans, let alone loved.}

6.) 27 Apr 2022 09:04:14
God the most natural finisher I’ve seen at lfc.

7.) 27 Apr 2022 10:21:20
In his pomp, I think Rushie would be perfect for us right now under Klopp.

8.) 27 Apr 2022 17:13:46
I think that Bayern striker (Polish lad ) reminds me of Rush so much with his movement and finishing.

9.) 27 Apr 2022 21:39:38
You can't remember Lewandowski's name? He kind of has been one of the very best players in the world for the last decade now.

{Ed0666's Note - I like the moniker ‘The Polish Fella’ I’m a big fan 😀



25 Apr 2022 05:49:36
Some of the anticts from the Everton players yesterday would make Mourinho proud. The goal keeping time wasting and Richarlson and his non stop hitting the deck was like something from his Porto team. But anyway apart from the the goals the biggest highlights for me where of course Alison mocking Pickford. And the jaw dropping bit of control by Dias. To control it in mid air in a kind of jumping back heel. I haven't seen it played back yet but it's something I've never seen done before.


1.) 25 Apr 2022 06:57:54
Diaz certainly enjoyed himself and gave Coleman a torrid time, that piece of skill was pure footballing joy.

2.) 25 Apr 2022 12:33:32
KC, that control for Dias with his first touch off the bench, was as the MOTD commentator said, "unnecessary".

Joking aside o remembered feeling really embarrassed by the whole saga. I don't know the ins and outs but Bolton needed a player, a local boy needed to play. Just let them get on with it.

Sorry VVVV I have to disagree. Certain clubs will always be attractive to players. Man United being one of them. They may not get the elite players they seem but they're a huge club and with a new manager they will be in contention for a top 4 place next yr.

I always had a soft spot for Inter. Probably coz a lot of the time they where the nearly men. The season they nearly won the league with Brazilian Ronaldo leading the line they were brilliant. And robbed in what of the worst reffereing performances against Juventus I've èver seen. Not sure if Zanneti was playing for them but I wouldn't be surprised as he was there so long.

Zanetti was great I admit but to discount Cafu can't be easy. Pity Zanetti spent so many years in average Inter sides. At least he managed to bump up his trophy collection towards the end tho.

Teddy Sheringham and Andy Cole. As for Tommy and Emlyn in Smiths autobiography which I believe as he seemed to be a what u see is what u get kind of lad he didn't agree with Hughes dressing room politicking and wasn't to concerned with him being captain as the players had their own captain. But what irked him most was the day before his testimonial when he was expecting Everton fans to arrive to either give him grief or appreciate a local player Emlyn coke up with the infamous "liverpool are magic and Everton are trajic' song. Personally I just think it was 2 clashes of personality. Both great players but my favourite was definitely Tommy Smith due to him growing up in the same area as me.

Wish him well. What a great signing he was. He's already scored a great goal at Bayerns ground. Now for a few more. So long Sadio. Thanks for the service and good luck.
