Ed001 is it true Liverpool have triggered one-year contract extension clause Joel matip's contract.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - I don't know, they have been trying to get him to sign a new deal for a while, so that would suggest no deal could be done.}

ed002 has the interest in lovren gone or do you expect him to move before the window closes all so are rangers back in for kent see something about a loan to buy at the end of the season cheers again ed.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed with Lovren really - the interest remains but Roma have looked at others as Liverpool want a straight sale. Besiktas see him as a cheap option but have not pushed as I under stand it and Milan see Devan Lovren (CB) as a cheap option to preferred targets given the significant issues there are in Milan but Liverpool rejected an approach. Bayer Leverkusen need to do something as they had a young English player as first choice and lost out, a young Welsh player as second choice but he is not really ready to step up and Laurent Koscielny as a back stop. DL is seen as a cheap back stop, and would rather someone younger and would likely want a loan.}


1.) 25 Aug 2019 20:00:39
I'd hope that we can keep lovren for this season if he is willing to wait another year before moving on. He's a great experienced option to have as backup and with us pushing this season to finally win that elusive league I hope he can be convinced to play his part when needed with the promise that next summer he will be given full control to choose his future.

We won't be realistically seeing a massive difference in his financial worth over 12 months so unless he is adamant he wants out this summer it would be sensible to try and keep him for now. Another year of development with van den berg and Hoever might see them being ready next season to replace lovren as first team option and if not then we will have time to pursue signing a lovren replacement.

I guess it all hinges on lovrens personal wishes right now and we should respect his choice as he's been a good servant to the club over the years. Any idea ED what his standing is? Is he pushing for transfer this year or would he be willing to remain a squad player for another season?

{Ed002's Note - He is getting older and wants to play regularly.}


2.) 25 Aug 2019 21:43:08
Considering his age, it should be a sale. If it's a loan, then it should be with an obligation to buy.


3.) 25 Aug 2019 22:24:04
I have respect for him wanting to play regularly and looking to take a step down in quality of team to achieve that and fully support him if he wants out. He's still got a potential 4 or 5 years that he can play in a top league so I'm hoping he can decide to give us another year before departing, . I'm sure any potential transfer this summer hinges on whether klopp feels that one of the youngsters can be competent enough to be used.


 

 

14 Aug 2019 08:13:03
Ed001 have we ever shown any interest in psv pair Hirving Lozano and Steven Bergwijn and what do you think about the pair of them .

grino75

{Ed001's Note - no and neither look good enough to me.}


1.) 15 Aug 2019 12:36:32
ED1- was it not yourself who championed Lozano for a while? Or was that ED2?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know. I did think he might be a decent bet after seeing a few performances, but I don't remember recommending him for Liverpool. He looks very good when you watch a game, but if you sit and watch him play, like I did recently for his profile, his flaws are massively evident.}


2.) 15 Aug 2019 20:36:38
Sometimes you have to watch a player closely to make a proper judgement. I had non- Liverpool (and Liverpool) fans who used to think Luis Garcia was amazing, I personally found him infuriating to watch, similarly it’s the opposite with Firmino.


 

 

29 Jul 2019 16:36:06
ed002 have your heard of any interest in Francois Kamano from Liverpool? thanks.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - I haven’t but I am aware of talks with Torino and Sampdoria.}


1.) 29 Jul 2019 21:25:01
Shame would be a good addition.

big Virgil turns down Barcelona enquiry. Shows how far we have come.

grino75

1.) 12 Jul 2019 14:24:22
Why would he want to move to perennial euro semi-finalists?


2.) 12 Jul 2019 16:02:37
If the story is even true!


3.) 12 Jul 2019 16:42:57
While I'm sure he would turn them down considering his past comments about Liverpool. They can't afford him anyway, likely just a rumour.


4.) 12 Jul 2019 17:43:17
Never happened.


5.) 12 Jul 2019 18:00:14
Didn’t know Barcelona had a spare billion euros!


6.) 12 Jul 2019 18:07:05
Wasn't there some ridiculous clause about how much extra Barcelona had to pay for one of our players? Or is that just paper BS?


7.) 12 Jul 2019 18:07:05
Wasn't there some ridiculous clause about how much extra Barcelona had to pay for one of our players? Or is that just paper BS?


8.) 12 Jul 2019 19:15:32
I thought it was just that the full Coutinho fee would become payable if they buy another of our players. Wonder how that would work if he leaves.


9.) 12 Jul 2019 19:32:01
I think they're stuck with Coutinho for the time being. There's only a handful of clubs than can afford him, and I don't think any of them are interested.

I think the only viable destination this summer is Manchester United, but he's already ruled himself out of that move. Maybe Chelsea in a year. Or maybe they can offload him to PSG as part of a deal for Neymar.


10.) 13 Jul 2019 04:47:13
There's no way they could afford him anyway. Griezmann and De Jong at big money, then they're looking to sign Neymar for even more, and they still haven't reduced their wage bill with Suarez, Messi, Couts, Dembele etc still banging about.


11.) 13 Jul 2019 07:50:32
Virgil is happy for now but I wouldn’t be surprised in a year or two if Real Madrid or Barcelona show serious interest that he will push to leave.


12.) 13 Jul 2019 07:51:53
Yea the rumours I’ve heard (websites etc) is that Barcelona want to include him in the neymar deal. But still be interesting to know how that clause would work if he’s sold.


13.) 13 Jul 2019 09:32:36
Could this alleged approach be considered tapping up eds?

{Ed002's Note - Of course it isn't. But putting aside all of the completely stupid responses, perhaps van Dijk would do to Liverpool what Liverpool had him do to Southampton?}


14.) 13 Jul 2019 11:18:09
Was just about to say the same Ed002. The absolute biased blinkered rubbish some Liverpool fans spout is vomit inducing. I'm a Liverpool fan and love Virgil, but I'm under no illusions that if he feels the move would be better for him that he wouldn't push for it. Same goes for any player. It's about time some fans opened their eyes and got used to the fact that liverpool isn't the centre of the universe for these players. It's a job, and as in all walks of life people change jobs for what THEY perceive to be a better opportunity.


15.) 13 Jul 2019 22:51:31
Whether this story is true or not I never really understand peoples surprise if one of our players leaves. Real Madrid and Barcelona and PSG all pay considerably higher wages, why wouldn't you go? Neymar left Barcelona after all. What'
s Bale on in Spain more than he'd get in the premier league I imagine,

ed001 we have disagreed a few times this season as I have been critical of Gini. But when I see him play like he did yesterday he just makes me wanting that every week he was pure class in everything he did. He all ways works hard but yesterday for me he was are star player just drove the team forward every time he got the ball and his working back against Silva was top notch.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - he was superb yesterday!}


1.) 11 Nov 2019 09:11:58
Gini was immense, last night. I have always said, Gini is a brilliant footballer and as a midfielder, there is nothing he lacks. It's just consistency that he needs week in, week out. The Gini we aw last night is the one we all see with Holland. Long may this continue.


2.) 11 Nov 2019 09:42:10
The kid is something else hey, never stops running.


3.) 11 Nov 2019 09:50:38
MOTM for me yesterday.


 

 

21 Oct 2019 13:27:53
ed001 I thought yesterday was just one of them days first half I thought only Gini turned up and the team was just giving away sloppy balls. I don't think the International break did us and favours but probably did them to break things up and are flow that we was on. I was surprised Milner did not start after having not played for 2 weeks. I all so thought with Salah not playing it showed the level drop with Origi coning in yesterday.

grino75

1.) 21 Oct 2019 13:57:51
I have said this before and I think yesterday just proved my point that it was a mistake by Klopp not to sell Origi in the summer and sign a better player. I think it will cost us a few points over the season just like it did yesterday! As we saw last season we just can’t afford to be losing points like that against poor teams!
This is just my opinion and will happily eat humble pie at the end of the season if proven wrong.

{Ed025's Note - you are correct imo wombats, a long term injury to one of the front 3 could seriously derail the liverpool express mate..


2.) 21 Oct 2019 14:05:06
yeah I said the same in the summer about selling Origi ed025 don't think we will ever get a better price than we would then just because of all the bull about how good he had done because he scored a few goals.

{Ed025's Note - i think hes ok to come off the bench grino and provide a different alternative when things are not going so well, but not as a starter as he does not have the pace or skill of the other front 3 who work well in tandem and compliment each other so well mate..


3.) 21 Oct 2019 14:49:01
ed025 I don't think he is if we had sold him in the summer and got some one better in would have been a lot better if we had got some one that same player in but kept Origi he would not come on so think we should of cashed in then.

{Ed025's Note - i know what you mean grino and your probably right mate..


4.) 21 Oct 2019 15:15:54
I find it funny that each time we don't win and Origi plays, he is the scapegoat for some as to why we did not win. So again and true to form, Origi is now the scapegoat cos we did not win a game at OT where we did not play well as a whole team and had the ref's incompetence on their side? So let me ask this: Hadf we sold Origi and brought in someone (we still don't know who), would that have prevented us from playing poorly in the first half or prevented VAR from crapping itself and the ref being incompetent on one side of the ledger? I would like your answers.

As for injuries, City for ex., did not have KDB for one game and got smashed by Wolves (in their building) YET we're the ones that have depth issues? Again, not bothered w/ scapegoating as it proves nothing but pettiness, IMO.

Bottom line is we did not play well in a game where the opponent made it very difficult for us and threw us off our game. We dug deep, fought hard and got a point and could have been three. I'll take that and move on to the next game instead of scapegoating x player for the failures of the whole team.


5.) 21 Oct 2019 15:17:17
We should cash in on Origi in the summer. He is on a long term contract and we can easily pick up 25-30 million pounds for him. We need someone closer to our front 3's quality coz an inconsistent super sub (Origi) and Shaq (who doesn't even fit Klopp's preferred 4-3-3 formation) will not cut the mustard for too long. I have a bad feeling we will fall short again in the title race bcoz of this.
Next summer, bringing in a CAM and a versatile quality forward is a must, not a luxury anymore.


6.) 21 Oct 2019 17:10:02
Although I agree that we need cover for the front three Klopp has to take his share for yesterday. Tactically Utd s set up killed our flow. We needed to change our tactics much sooner or perhaps even before a ball was kicked.
What we knew pre match:

Utd were always going to set up to counter
All Utd players would play better than they usually do
Our wingbacks are both our strength and weakness.

Why not set up a 4-2-3-1 from the get go?

Origi could have played as line striker?


7.) 21 Oct 2019 18:15:38
Impact sub, that's all Big Div is.


8.) 21 Oct 2019 18:12:38
No one is making Origi a scapegoat and singling him out from the performance yesterday. Every player on the pitch was below par. But he has shown on more than one occasion he is just not good enough and had plenty of chances to hold a place on the team. In my opinion Brandt would have been an ideal replacement.

{Ed025's Note - of course no one is making him a scapegoat wombats, its just a view on how liverpool can improve as a squad by having better options up front, i think we all know that divock is not the answer as his strengths dont conform to the fast one touch interplay of the liverpool front 3, but it is all about opinions mate..


9.) 21 Oct 2019 18:29:35
Name one player better than Origi that would be prepared to come and sit on the bench.

{Ed025's Note - no one should be prepared to sit on the bench thunderbird, they should be a player who is good enough to play in the first team and have the ability to force their way into the squad, that keeps them all on their toes and gives klopp the ability to rotate without compromising the strength of the team mate..


10.) 21 Oct 2019 18:30:52
IB, people have been saying we should cash in on Origi for a whole year now YET he is still here. Could that be cos Klopp and a section of the fans love him and loves what he brings? Also, I find it utterly bonkers as to how people who want Origi gone, can go on and on about how we won the CL and got 1 point short of winning the PL with 97 points YET fail to acknowledge the HUGE part Origi played in making our dreams come true in one and almost come true in the other.

Each time we don't win, scapegoating commences regardless of who the player is. People saying we should get someone of a better class than Origi. Ok, fine. Is that not what we spent the whole summer trying to do and no club would sell their best talents to us cos they did not want to sit on the bench? Again, these arguments are illogical.

Origi had a bad game, so what? Were the others cruising or did majority of the team like Origi, not have bad games YET Origi is the scapegoat? As for people crowing for Salah, they seem to forget that Salah does not play well vs utd as they know how to play against him. So how are we sure he would have been the diff. maker? Again, it seems people are just interested in being right ) hence pick the parts that work for them) instead of making sound judgments based on the whole evidence available.


11.) 21 Oct 2019 19:02:09
I agree RedWolf. Based on that logic we should get rid of Mane and Firmino too because they were both just as poor as Origi yesterday. Firmino was probably worse.
At the end of the day we drew a game away at old Trafford. It happens. I think we’ve just become so accustomed to winning that a draw feels like a defeat. It isn’t, it’s a draw get over it and stop trying to blame individual players when the whole team just didn’t function too well.
I think they took us by surprise initially but I also think that the officials didn’t give us a chance to get into the game. It’s hard to concentrate when the players and manager are constantly having a go at the officials for their blatant one sided decisions. At one point Ashley Young took a throw in at least 20 yards further forward from where it should be. Klopp was irate on the touch line but I think by that point the team had just accepted that the ref wasn’t playing fair and would allow Utd to do whatever they wanted.
Yes we should’ve played better but it really wasn’t a level playing field and to blame Origi for that is just ridiculous.

{Ed025's Note - no one is blaming origi BP, we are opining the merits of having him as a replacement starter for one of the front 3, a lot of us dont think he has the quality to start a game as a replacement for sadio, bobby or mo, he is not fluid or mobile enough to do that so an injury to one of them means the team is a lot weaker and far less effective as an attacking force, you may think different and thats fine by me but dont be portraying it like its a witch hunt against divock mate..


12.) 21 Oct 2019 20:52:07
Redwolf I think most of the team played well below there best but I don't think Origi did play that much below his standard that's the point. He scored some very important goals last season but he never plays to the anywhere near the level of the others and that's not a dig at him that's just his level. And if we had sold him at the end of the season, what a way to bow out for us. But as ed025 said he all ways needs the extra touch and slows the play down but that's because of the level he plays at compared to the others and yes we could have got some else in and kept Origi as well but then he would get no game time what would not be fair on him at all. Am sure there are teams that would suit him more than are style does.


13.) 21 Oct 2019 20:00:42
Sorry Ed25 BUT you're back pedaling here. You are the one guy who says it is not a witch hunt against Origi YET are the same guy who has been witch-hunting on Origi since Origi ruined his derby days vs Everton not once, not twice and not even three times for years now. Oh, the irony is deafening. I called you out on your scapegoating in a separate thread so own it and stop shifting your view to suit your narrative.

Spot on, Beckers. The worst thing is that it is not just those on here scapegoating Origi. it is all over SM, man. It's frightening. Just a bunch of spoiled brats spitting their dummies out cos we did not walk a game that historically, we NEVER walk if you ask me.

As for Orig, he offers things that the other in the front three don't. He is big, strong, fast and has good footwork for such a big guy. He is not better than his front three mates BUT he does not need to be better in order to still be very effective cos offer something different. It is that "something different" that has kept him here and made him an LFC legend after his heroics not just in the CL BUT in the PL cos mark my words, we don't stand a chance of the PL last season w/ o him so let's get those facts out, right there. But let's ignore all those great contributions and scapegoat him cos he had a bad game vs utd. Pathetic, really.

People saying he is not up to the level of the three amigos may be true BUT then who is? We tried to sign better players BUT no one would sell them to us to sit on the bench. Is that Origi's fault as well? Origi had a bad game. Get over it and get over yourselves, really cos he is here to stay and will play/ start more games this season.

{Ed025's Note - you really are opinionated and if you were a mars bar would eat yourself redwolf, its only in your mind that origi is a legend mate and you cant admit you were wrong about him, you are becoming a bit nasty with this thread and trying to ram things down peoples throats so i will respectfully ask you to calm down, posters have been banned for less but thats not my style so you need to have a think about your style of penmanship and your tone to posters who have a differing opinion to you, consider this as constructive criticism as i think at times you have a lot to offer the site, but there is a line and you are treading very close to it my friend..peace..


14.) 21 Oct 2019 20:33:36
The one I want to see keep getting minutes is Harvey Elliot. Too early to say how good he will be but he did look very sharp and bright when he’s played so far this season. Bit of a shame he was banned for this match for being a young div.

{Ed025's Note - love it taurus..


15.) 21 Oct 2019 22:09:30
Saying Origi isn't good enough if Salah or Mane are AWOL and we should've replaced him with a better player is all well and good, but who should we have bought? Who was going to be a guaranteed (in so far as anything can be guaranteed in footy) upgrade on him, and would've come knowing he was going to sit on the bench more often than not? And wouldn't have cost an absolute fortune for a backup player to boot?

We were linked with Nicolas Pepe, let's look at him. £70m and he looks really uncomfortable in the Prem, despite playing most of Arsenal's games. Imagine the state the poor bloke would be in if he'd joined us and only started his 3rd or 4th game at the weekend. Don't think he'd have done anything more for us than Divock.


16.) 22 Oct 2019 00:00:59
Something-Red, that is the question that no one seems to be able to answer. As for Pepe, he is getting raked over the coals at Arsenal right now, which goes to show you that just bring in a new player will not automatically solve things. Only time will tell if he makes the cut. On to Genk.


17.) 22 Oct 2019 07:03:48
The fact Klopp wanted to replace to Origi has made all of Redwolfs arguments nonsense! After seeing the players Klopp has bought so far I would back him 100% to have signed a better player.
It’s not hatred against the player it’s only an opinion and it’s just pathetic having a dig at Ed0025 because he doesn’t agree.

{Ed047's Note - couldn’t agree more, Origi is band average and I was amazed he got a new contract.


18.) 22 Oct 2019 08:24:52
Ed’s 025 so because some one has the balls was to say it as it is he is threatened with being banned! What is this page called LFC banter some times the truth hurts Edds take it on the chin (not that chin the one below) and crack on with it you have your opinion redwolf has his opinion and I believe it is up to the the people who visit this site to make decisions on weather they like a post or not so come on mate no more threats it is below you blue nose.

{Ed025's Note - that was not a threat albey it was a direction to be more understanding and tolerant of other peoples views, i dont think you know how a moderator works mate..


19.) 22 Oct 2019 10:49:07
So now your a teacher Ed 25 ? If you don’t like people’s opinion then why do this job . If you were a mars bar I think you would eat your self to as your very opinionated buddy so making people react is part of the forum bud I no I did not take offence to redwolfs post did any one else complain? Being in a position of power like you are a bit more thought and a little less anger will go a long way buddy and more people will laugh with you not against you or am I being to opinionated to Ed 25.

{Ed025's Note - not opinionated albey...more uneducated, you dont understand how it works im afraid my friend, i could sit here all day and try to explain it to you but to be honest i just cant be arsed..


 

 

08 Oct 2019 10:44:40
ed001 how has Marko Grujić season started I have seen he has scored 2 goals in 7 games so far. And do you see him having a future with us or if he has another good season being sold on at the end of this season. Not sure from what I see of him if he suits are style of play don't think he has the speed to play in are midfield I know Fabinho is not like hendo and co but he plays a different role to all are other midfielders.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - he has been excellent so far this season and I know Klopp would like to bring him back, if he is willing. That will be the key, how he feels about coming back, as Klopp wants players who are desperate to play for Liverpool. The other big issue is the work permit situation, which could be a huge problem due to the way we handled getting the initial permit.}


1.) 08 Oct 2019 11:36:59
Looks brilliant and a lot like the player we signed from Belgrade. I hope our recklessness with his work permit doesn't affect his future prospects for work in England, would be gutted if that was the case. He single handedly tore Bayern a new one this season.


2.) 08 Oct 2019 14:00:27
If he can slot into one of the central midfield positions and backup up Fabinho, then it's worth taking a shot at bringing him back in. And if we go by an interview I saw recently, he really does want to play for the club.


3.) 08 Oct 2019 19:01:40
I hope MG can come back and make a name fr himself at LFC. The kid is talented cos he is showing it in Germany right now. Here's to hoping his work permit issues can be resolved.


4.) 08 Oct 2019 23:07:22
The chances of him wanting to play for Liverpool are zero, in my opinion. Grujic will argue that he is showing his talent now, because he is given opportunities. He will not want to come back to Liverpool and further disrupt his playing career.


5.) 10 Oct 2019 08:21:29
He’s not a fabinho type player aray.


 

 

23 Sep 2019 13:10:43
Ed001 I would say the Adrian transfer is the best business of the summer to sell Mings for over £6m and to get him for free and not sure but would guess he is in less wages great business.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - a lot less wages.}


1.) 23 Sep 2019 14:13:10
well he deserves a pay rise. I was dreading it when Alisson got injured. But he has got better with every game and if Alisson was not such an outstanding keeper he would be unlucky to lose his place when he comes back.


2.) 23 Sep 2019 14:13:10
well he deserves a pay rise. I was dreading it when Alisson got injured. But he has got better with every game and if Alisson was not such an outstanding keeper he would be unlucky to lose his place when he comes back.

{Ed001's Note - he is loving it as well. It is like all his Christmases have come at once and it is so nice to see a player who is just delighted to be where he is.}


3.) 23 Sep 2019 17:21:48
Think he'll get a Spain call up ed?

{Ed001's Note - probably not though he probably deserves one.}


4.) 23 Sep 2019 18:03:59
"Best business of the summer"?

We signed him, two kids and a veteran third choice keeper on a free that last played in the Championship. I think it's a bit early to judge the kids, but yeah, Adrian's done a great job deputising so far.


5.) 23 Sep 2019 18:04:55
He’s getting better and better. Great saves for the header against Napoli, stood up well for the 1v1 against Abraham and made a cracking save before the disallowed goal.

Like you said about being happy to be here ed, he truly seems it. Albeit he may have less than 10 games left in his Liverpool career!

Is he on a one year contract ed?

He seems like the perfect prem number 2, as he has shown that he can cover if needed and Allison can’t rest on his laurels. But also a good pro and will understand if he doesn’t play much.


6.) 23 Sep 2019 22:08:21
Adrian did not have a full preseason when he got picked up literally off the street/ couch before the season began. This showed in his first few games as he was out of shape and off the pace not only physically but mentally and was not yet used to the way we play. It also did not help that he got injured in the Super Cup and played the Saints game on a bummed ankle and yet, still managed to keep us in the game in the first half.

The int'l break came at the best time as clearly, he and the coaches spent the time really working hard on his game and what is expected of him in the Klopp system. Now, it is showing and IMO, he has been a rock for us. His perf. vs Napoli was AB1-esque and he was solid again vs Chelsea. As Ed 01 said, all his Christmases seem to have come true and he is giving it loads. Great professional and is now a fan fav., IMO.

Really has worked out nicely. He was signed with us all thinking he'd never be needed but thrown into action straight away and has improved week after week. You could tell after the super cup how happy he is to have this opportunity with us and when allison returns he might not be used much again and even if that is the case he will be more than proud of his role and we can forever remember him as an iconic legend similar to how Gary McAllister is.

Let's hope he stays solid until allison returns and if we manage to claim glory by next may then Adrian will be deserved of big credit to playing a huge involvement in our strong early form.

What's also nice is that if he moves on in a year or 2 he may well have good offers available to play PL football still as a year or 2 simply as allison understudy would have likely seen him fall away from top tier clubs interest.

Fair play to the lad, seems a real genuine nice person who's fulfilling his dream at the point in his career when it seemed so unlikely.

ed001 great result today but we was very lucky to get out there with the points today. I thought Klopp was a bit slow with the subs and I don't know how Gini stayed on the pitch today he was just not at the races all game today, he just kept giving the ball away all game. I felt sorry for trent just left on his own most of the game I thought the Ox should have come on to give us some drive in the middle of the park.

Agreed we rode our luck today. It was not just Gini (I don't think he was one of the worst) Salah and Firmino couldn't hold the ball at all, very wastefull. When Hendo went off Trent was left totally exposed, Milner should have gone over that side.

Last sub was very very late, I was screaming for Gomez to come on at 80 mins not 92 mins.

A win is a win 15 in a row and counting. Adrian, Matip both very good.

taking our foot off the gas was a big mistake, after the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half we seemed to relax a little too much, allowing players time and space to dribble and shoot is something we must stop doing.
2-0 is always a dangerous score line and we very nearly paid the price.
This victory today could be vital come the end of the season as our away form against our top 6 rivals will be key to our title challenge.
Lets not underestimate Sheffield utd either, just ask ed0025 and everton.

Wjinaldum did what he does. He is an intelligent player. Worked his socks off, as did all the midfield. And when under presdure he still had the legs to drive counter attacks. His skill led to the second goal. Not his best performance but far, far from his worst.

I love him more with every game.

A win away to chelsea lads, a few years ago it would have been highly unlikely. Wasnt pretty but i think that's the stage where at now, we go away to top 6 teams play poorly (only for 45 mins) and still win. the team just expects to win every game now.


5.) 22 Sep 2019 22:14:49
I don’t see how you can say we were lucky today. I thought we were the better team for the majority of the game and Chelsea only really caused us problems when we tired in the last 15 minutes. Did Adrian have many saves to make second half? Chelsea couldn’t even hit the target with the few chances they had.


6.) 23 Sep 2019 08:06:51
They peppered our goal for nearly 15 minutes we couldn't get out of our own box the subs made were wrong imo by removing salah and mane takes away our first line of defence both of them are double marked the whole game 3 on salah sometimes they just surrounded him but they stay high and it stops chelsea fully committing to attack and bringing on gomez for salah takes me back to throwing 3 goal leads away bang another defender in there to cause confusion in our box.


7.) 23 Sep 2019 15:21:39
Mane was taken off because he had a dead leg, Salah was taken off in the 92nd minute.

His form has been very poor for a long time now don’t see him getting anywhere near are first team. And if he did where would that leave Brewster.

am not saying anything about the club Bribing the council am just saying that the normal folk normally get the S*** end off the stick. And as I understand it now there is no plans as they ran out. and it was the local authorities that said they was going to use CPO to get the last of the houses for the main stand.

sorry ed about the 3 roads I meant 4 rows of house for it to have the same height as the main stand would need that for light not to be an issue. And as for the CPO the club would need the planning from local authorities and wants they have that if they get it then it will end up going the CPO route what the club will know will probably have to go that way to get all the houses need for the build. But as most of the time nowadays ed its the money that talks. Like I said before ed if the club wants that stand doing I do think paying over the odds for the houses would be the best way for the club to deal with the issue not that I have heard of any talk of the Sir Kenny Dalglish stand being done I was just pointing out that I see the being a bit off if it ever happens.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - You seem to have little or no understanding of the plans that exist nor how the locals are already miffed with the club. You think Liverpool could bribe the council to get CPOs to make more locals homeless then you should be sharing those with the Echo and local community. Don’t worry, they are inner city folks who have little money and could probably be forced out by the club.}

yes I know the local authorities have to get it ed but if they put in planning for the SKD stand and it got granted, that is the only way they would get all the houses, And then I do believe it would go that way not that I like CPO. have seen people near me have there house taken from them with CPO'S I think if they are used the owners should get more than the value of the house rather than less. And with the money in clubs now with what they pay players for one weeks wages over paying for the house near by would be go good way to go about it. I would guess the house at the back of the ground would be about the £100k mark giving an extra 25% would not be a great deal to the clubs but I would mean a lot to the home owners ed. I think in the 4 streets there is about 80 houses so about £8m for all the house an extra £2m on top with what they are paying to get the ground up to 70k with what an 70k stadium would cost to build.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry I am losing track - you say you know it would be the authorities but previously said it would be the club. Nobody has suggested three roads will go. The club has already pissed off and lied about their involvement with the local residents. The club suffers from being arrogant, uncaring and showing no respect to other clubs or individuals - perhaps they will look to force more people from their homes.}

ED002 did they not get one for the main stand . And if they was to do the skd stand there is no way that could not be done without at least 3 streets being knocked down. I don’t know why they could not to get compulsory purchase order.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - That is not what the existing planning permission states. Liverpool cannot get a CPO - that would need to be the local authorities.}

I thought teen did ok till the last 15 minutes don’t think Henderson going off helped he seemed to cover that side of the pitch like Gini was are left side did not see Milner doing it as much as Henderson. And Trent was against on form one of the best players in world football.

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.

grino75

{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.

I agree with you ed001 about Hendo I think he is a great captain his more old school than most players but his form is off at the minute, but I think if we drop him for the City game he will come back with the bit between his teeth. Even if he comes on for the second half so I would start with Fabs Gini and Milner. As for the back I would go for Gomez over Lovren every time just think he needs a few games under his belt to get back to last seasons form.

ed001 what's your thoughts on this Var incident do you think anything will happen about it. After seeing this it shows how open it is to corruption.

you all so have to remember that Brewster had about 18 months out injured and look how long it's taken Ox to get fully back after 12 months out so people need to be patient with him and Ox.
