Hey eds, what do you make of Ballotellis agent saying he will be staying at the club next season? Do you think the club won't be able to drop their price enough to sell him on?

kevlaw

{Ed002's Note - It is posturing to get to a price where a deal can be done elsewhere. As I have explained, Liverpool want way too much. Mino will posture until he gets his way.}


1.) 27 May 2015 21:57:37
Balotelli, from what I observed last season, is worth f@:kall!!
to get him off the wage-bill would be an achievement.
Personally, I'd make him stay and put him in goal 'cos Mignolet's sh"t!!
On the positive side, Liverpool cast-off Iago Aspas has a Europa League winners medal in his back-pocket!

Hey eds, just was wondering what is your take on Lovren's situation, he is left out of the squad again tonight. do you think he has been cast aside and could be moved on? Or do you feel is more down to the change of formation and he just isn't doing enough to get into the team? Or do you see him playing more next season when Can potentially moves more into a central midfield position when Gerrard leaves us? Would be curious to hear your opinion on his Liverpool future.

kevlaw

{Ed001's Note - he is not happy and right now it is likely he will be off in the summer. Things change though, and he has a few months to get back into the reckoning.}


1.) 04 Feb 2015 21:56:47
He's another player we shouldn't have bought. . a one-season wonder at Southampton. The best season of an otherwise average career and we paid through the nose for him.
He'll end up going for peanuts and we'll continue to rue our treatment of better centre-halves like Kelly, Wisdom, Llori, Agger and Toure.
Southampton must get their best china out when they see us walking towards their offices. It's like our foreign aid policy.


2.) 04 Feb 2015 23:27:24
Cheers eds, i had a feeling that this was likely where he was at. I'd love though for him to break back into the squad, same way Sakho has done, but sadly i don't think that will happen.


3.) 04 Feb 2015 23:35:34
Would anyone want him ed? if so we would struggle to get half our money back.It's a very odd situation because he looked boss for Southampton but just looks lost in an Lpool shirt A return to Southampton seems unlikely due to the fuss he kicked up when they rejected bids from us. I just hope if Lovren were to go we would give Ilori and Wisdom a chance at the club rather than spending a lot more money on another centre back


4.) 05 Feb 2015 09:55:06
Is the story true about Gerrard going to throttle him after one of the games? Personally I think he will be fine once he is fully settled and the pressure is off him a little next season. A bit like Hendo.


5.) 05 Feb 2015 12:45:49
Surely we scouted him properly prior to his move and thought he had the required qualities, even if I didn't rate him I would err on trusting the club as I'm one of those who wrote off Henderson and have had to eat my words.

If it did happen there must be massive questions asked of the transfer committee. Its the scouting network that really needs an overhaul at Liverpool in my opinion. We seem to spend an awful lot of money for an small amount of improvement.

Though on the flip side I am actually quite happy with most of the business done over the summer, overpriced but some really good potential.

Loafmaster Flex

{Ed002's Note - The scouting set up has been overhauled.}


6.) 05 Feb 2015 13:38:51
You'd have to question why he isn't getting another chance in the team with the new set up. Yes he was awful at the start of the season, but absolutely everyone was. I'd like to see him with Sakho on the ground with him, Lucas in front of him and a partially revitalized Mingolet giving him a little bit more direction


7.) 05 Feb 2015 23:13:59
I don't think he was tried as part of a three man defense.
Maybe that would help him.


8.) 06 Feb 2015 03:49:54
its kinda unfair to alienate him. when we needed a CB i would put him there ahead of Johnson to be honest.


9.) 06 Feb 2015 05:07:22
Can you elaborate on the overhaul Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - It is as simple as staff being changed - Mel Johnson, Alan Harper and Mike McGlynn have left and others have arrived.}


10.) 08 Feb 2015 20:06:22
How come a perfectly good player turned into a shadow of his former self after being coached by Brendan & co. What the hell did they do to him?


11.) 10 Feb 2015 11:02:21
I think Lovren will come good when Brendan eventually deems him ready to step back into the first team. Look at the transformation Sakho has made.

what an end to the season we have on our hands. Whatever happens happens, we should be nothing but proud of this team and what they have done this season. We have gotten the most points now than we ever have in any PL season and there is still 3 games left. forget about City, we only need focus on ourselves and what we have done this season, only lost once so far this season, and that was to the team that will finish in the top 2 and will amass over 90 points. What i love about this team is the calmness we have in each game, not bothered with the title just focused on the game in front of us. We have 3 games left in the league season, currently 2 points ahead of 2nd, and in a CL semi final, I am sure i am not the only fan who would have bit off someones hand to be in this position. Whatever happens i think we should just relax and enjoy the ride, whatever happens, happens. I for one am immensely proud of this team and cannot wait for the next game. YNWA.

27 wins and 7 draws from 35 games?
Up there with the very best Liverpool seasons whatever happens in the last 3 games. 👏.


2.) 21 Apr 2019 21:29:10
If we don't win it this season, those draws will have cost us.


3.) 21 Apr 2019 22:16:33
No, Hamidou. The draws would NOT have. A season comes with ups and downs and if we don't win the PL this season with 97 points in the bag, we go back and try to get 100 points next season, end of. We go back and get better at what we are not good at AND get WAY better at what we are good at. That is how athletes and managers improve. As Klopp said, your argument is "one of the weak-minded and of idiots". I hope you don't ascribe to the group Klopp is talking about?


4.) 21 Apr 2019 23:15:36
Surly we are not complaining about 1 loss and 7 draws.


5.) 21 Apr 2019 23:18:12
Exactly Redwolf. Without the draws we’d be 14 points better off right now. That means we’d have 102 points with 3 games to go. Anyone who thinks that is realistic is an absolute fool and shouldn’t be watching football.
Even if we’d beaten Leicester and West Ham we’d be on for 101 points which would be a league record!
97 points would be an incredible haul and if City get 98 then fair play. That’s what their Abu Dhabi billions will buy you I suppose.
Regardless of that though we have had an incredible season and we should all be hugely proud of our club and the players.


6.) 22 Apr 2019 00:44:27
Red Wold - there is pragmatism in defeat and then there is blind ignorance when presented with the facts. You can also still have for better whilst recognizing areas that let us down. the table doesn't lie, and our performances in most of those games we drew have let us down. Hopefully City have one more blip up their sleeve for us to capitalize on. Also, imo there is a decorum of respect that we should observe when we talk about other posters . . .

when the season is done we can look back at gained / dropped points here and there, they will all be true and objective measures for our points tally.


7.) 22 Apr 2019 06:36:34
Like it or not, Hamidou’s statement is fact. How else could we have got more points than City?


8.) 22 Apr 2019 07:21:18
I reckon beating them might of done it.


9.) 22 Apr 2019 09:46:27
Hamidou, I apologize if the last part of my post (the part stating that your argument was that of the weak-minded and idiots, a quote from Klopp) offended you. I am in no way, referring to you as an idiot or weak-minded. I was making a bigger point that there are ups and downs in a season and sometimes you can't control outcomes all the time. Cheers, man.


10.) 22 Apr 2019 09:44:45
Faith, you accusing me of blind ignorance is hilarious. Using context to explain a fact is NOT blind ignorance. It is called nuanced thinking. You should try it before insulting others of the very thing you are suffering from. Also. there is NO difference btw what you posted and what I posted.

If we don't win the PL, we go and get better at things we did not do right and get WAY better at things we did do right. Again, a season is made of ups and downs. Blips and purple patches. The main thing is to stay the course when you are out of form. There are a tonne of things that led us to the 7 draws. Stating that we had 7 draws is stating a fact without context hence, peeing in the wind, IMO.

Lack of form, injuries, ref. decisions etc. are things that led to those 7 draws while at the same time, we got lucky in several areas and games where we got wins where a draw or loss was staring us in the face. That is how a season works and I am sure you are intelligent enuff to know that.

This simplistic argument of "had we won those 7 games, we would 14 points better". That will only be a fact if you believe we would NEVER lose form, have injuries hence drop points in other games, a trail of thought that is completely baseless and lacks context. Cheers, mate.

12.) 22 Apr 2019 08:47:10
Faithinworks, you appear to be mounting a vigorous challenge to Walter for the ‘Wet Blanket of the Year’ award. Do you seriously believe that this wonderful team has ‘let us down’ In any game in the PL this season? Do you actually watch our games or just look at the result and form an opinion on how the team played? I agree with the bulk of posters on this site, true Liverpool supporters, who quite rightly describe this team as one of our best ever playing a PL season which is one of our best ever. Whether we win the PL title, the CL, both or nothing we should be proud of this fine young team and our fantastic manager. YNWA.


13.) 22 Apr 2019 12:56:10
give it a rest guys. If we win or lose the league by a point we will analzye and reminisce on individual moments as "key" to our final tally. I'm fine with the pragmatism and deeper analysis but it can really be as simple as dropping a single game costing us the title. the margins are that tight and this season is proving it don't ya think?

Also I didn't call you blind or ignorant, just the premise that someone else's view is idiotic for the sake of pragmatism, to me, is blindly ignorant of the objective facts that hamidou was basing his perspective. Again, I'm with you on the ups and downs etc but there a few objective stats out there and the w-l-d and points column are the most important! The table does not lie!

We have a chance and hopefully City habe another down for us to capitalize on.


14.) 22 Apr 2019 13:00:46
wirral, I must admit watching live at 3am probably clouds my judgement! I love the team and have been advocating for the journey FSG has been on from the beginning when most on here were calling for the to sell up and get out. You seem to be jumping to a whole bunch of conclusions that I haven't even thought about. . . Overall am stoked with this historic season, and in some of the games when we dropped points I hoped we didn't, I really think It is ok to feel let down in that moment and then look forward to the next match. That is a pretty human thing to do. Shivers, it's not like I'm calling for the FA to withdraw our participation award, crikey. . .


15.) 22 Apr 2019 16:22:04
Faithinworks, in an earlier post you stated “our performances in most of those games we drew have let us down”. I disagree. As other posters have pointed out, there are myriad reasons why those games ended in a draw and to claim that they were mostly down to substandard performances ignores the reality of a football match and a top level football season. To extend your statement to it’s logical conclusion, there has never been a Liverpool season that has not let us down because we have never won every game and we have never won every competition we have entered. I am happy to accept the totality of this season’s wonderful performances and achievements - even if we fall short of both PL and CL this season - rather than pick over the bones of the small number of games when we didn’t win.


16.) 22 Apr 2019 21:08:28
Brilliantly put, WW. I have a huge problem with people nit-picking in order to prove a broader point, as if those isolated incidents occurred in a vaccum. Using 7 measely draws to say we lost the title completely ignores the fact that we have won a stunning 28 PL games and recorded JUST one loss. Again, big picture.

Also for context, we have dropped 17 points this season as a whole while City has dropped how many? Yeah, 16 points. Should we win it, will people now say that it was the 4 losses that let them down? Anyone who has the audacity and naivete to say that our boys let us down in any way this season would we not win the PL this season, will be met head on with fierce rebuttals from my end.

{Ed0333's Note - I blame Theresa May and The Krankies if we don’t win it


17.) 22 Apr 2019 21:17:37
Wirral, I'm not picking over the bones of a small number of games. Just expressing the feeling at the team. Do you think Klopp really feels happy flappy after dropping points at home to Leicester and manU? Doubt it, and we seem to be caught up in the semantics of "being let down". don't get it twisted, I think our guys are great, and we could replace that line with disappointed / guttered / missed opportunity. Whatever, you're going way deeper about it than I think I am! On the other hand, pointing put these draws isn't the death knell of a supporter? At the moment those results are a difference maker. I hope City can pick up at least a draw in their coming matches that we can take advantage of!

{Ed0333's Note - don’t worry mate my sister has gone on a pilgrimage to Mecca and I asked her to pray for a United win or a draw against City. We have divine inspiration on our side.


18.) 22 Apr 2019 22:43:02
oh for goodness sake, this is starting to feel like left-leaning politicians fighting with each other. We're on the same team fellahs! Yet your guys pragmatism, general "level-headedness" and aversion to knee-jerkism is getting in the way of accepting another poster's perspective. Which, to bring it back to where I came in, imo is all that Hamidou was raising about our dropped points. Then he got shot down for being an idiot. Gees, let's know let our pragmatism get the better of us aye?

I'll just say one last time - The lads have been fantastic this year. Win or lose, they have done the club proud. That doesn't remove the feelings of disappointment in matches where we dropped points we shouldn't have. In that moment it felt disappointing (as klopp himself expressed many a time in those post match pressers! ), but then we move on to the next match. Very few, especially not me, was calling for Klopp or FSG's head like some do. But you know who those posters are on here!

Let's hope over the coming weeks that we go perfect and City drop at least a couple points. I think manU are a great should this week.


19.) 22 Apr 2019 23:27:52
Ed333! yes, I think there is a great chance at Old Trafford. just hope it's for the fellahs in red lol.

I was thinking back to the season after our title charge under BR. and at times we looked so bereft of ideas and identity. We'd show up for the big matches for the first 20mins and then the quality of our opposition would come through. I am hoping, for one match, manU can pull on enough passion to pull a result!

Hey ed1, not sure if you have already done an article on this before, but just wondering if you could do a comparison to our current front 3 of suarez sturridge and sterling in the 13/ 14 season. Obviously we play totally different now than we did then. Only if you have time mate. YNWA.

kevlaw

{Ed001's Note - I will do that as a Comparisons article, good idea mate.}


1.) 14 Apr 2019 13:49:43
For me I think that attack was better for scoring goals.

I mean the manager is much better now. As is our back 5 compared to migs. Glen Johnson. Skrtel sakho and flanno. Also that team had Gerrard coutinho lucas and a on form hendo in midfield and still managed to get 2nd. I think we are more of a team now than then but think that team had more individual starts in midfield and attack.


2.) 14 Apr 2019 19:45:08
Yeah back then, that attack carried the team. You put vvd, Allison Robertson and Trent back then and we would have won the league by a margin.


3.) 15 Apr 2019 13:18:28
Be some game to watch if you put that 11 up against our current one. Mane and salah would turn those full backs inside out😂.


4.) 15 Apr 2019 19:11:36
Codtown, the 13/ 14 team had too many wholes in it and it was built on quicksand rather than careful, meticulous, strategic planning like this one is. Also, the manager we have now is not only light years ahead of BR in terms of tactics, he is a much better communicator, more experienced regarding title races in Germany, a leader of men, and did not spend his time trying to take all the credit. Rather, Klopp has developed a well-rounded team of not just good players BUT of good lads whose mentality is for the team and not for their own individual gains.

As for scoring goals, this team is much better IMO cos it is much more fluid in its movements and the front 33 can play anywhere in the attack, something BR's team could NOT do. All in all, this team would wipe the floor with the 13/ 14 team IMO cos is it a much more balanced team than that one at near EVERY level. For starters, SG would not be able to cope with the super high tempo our midfielders currently play with.


 

 

03 Mar 2019 22:32:58
Frustrating game and media and other teams will consider us out of the race now. The draws have been killing us but look where we are. We are 1 point behind the leaders with 9 games left to play this season. Every one of us would have bitten anyones hand off to be in this position. Citehs injuries are building up and they still have allot of games left to play. I think this will benefit the team to be honest. Its out of our hands, and the pressure has been really affecting the team. The pressure is all on city now, hopefully this will take the pressure off the team and we can just relax and play great football and win the remaining of our games. Whatever happens, happpens. If we finish a point behind city, the season for me is a success.
On to the next game. YNWA.

kevlaw

1.) 04 Mar 2019 05:16:00
I think the team has been set up quite defensively in midfield for the last few games, and Klopp has been hoping a goal or two nicked by the front three would be enough, but unfortunately we’ve just been missing that killer touch. Salah should have scored two against Everton.

I think being 1 point behind will make Klopp a bit more adventurous and I think it’s time for Keita and Shaqiri to shine now. Play a 4-2-3-1 and and use either Shaqiri or Keita at 10 and we should be much more dangerous. I trust Fabinho and Gini to protect the back 4 so there limited downside now to having a real go at teams.

If we can get on a run and also beat Tottenham and Chelsea which are both at home, I’d fancy our chances as City are likely to drop points somewhere.


2.) 04 Mar 2019 05:58:08
For me, with the media and social media all giving up on our chances, I think we're better placed now to stake our genuine claim as the pressure of their expectations has lessen on us now. With 9 more finals to go, I still fancy us to do it the hard way (that's our way anyways) as City have only been grinding out results of late and would have to face United at OT just like we did Everton. Whether or not we stay consistent is another thing as we'll likely be four points behind come sat. Its the time we need to show our character (not the Brendan way though) lol but I am still very positive that this year will not elude us. No one should be slated for criticizing the team but that wouldn't change a thing now, it's what it is. Imagine we had this defense in 2014? But it's 2019 and we're still well placed to turn the table. We fall together and rise together! Let's believe and support. Ynwa.


 

 

21 Jan 2019 00:30:16
After yesterdays 2 goals for Salah he is the 4th fastest PL player to reach 50 goals having played only 72 games (48 goals for liverpool, 2 goals at Chelsea) . His stats line up exactly with Fernando Torres first 50 PL goals. Question is, who would you prefer to have in your team? It would be interesting to hear Ed1 opinion on this, which player was more technically gifted or the better eye for goal etc. For me it has to be Torres, he was a sensation when he first joined. It was sad to see his decline so fast. Any opinions fellow reds?

kevlaw

{Ed001's Note - there is no contest. Salah scored a large number of his goals from the wing, yet still scored at the same rate as Torres. He also offers flexibility. Technically there is little between them, but Salah has a slight edge in almost every area.}


1.) 21 Jan 2019 04:19:23
Very hard comparison as they've played in different teams with different players and different systems. For a couple of years, Torres was irresistible feeding off Gerrards crosses and technically superb. Mo, however, has flourished under Klopp with the likes of Mane and Firmino around him. Probably best to make the comparison once their careers have finished but Torres slightly shades it for me before he lost his pace.


2.) 21 Jan 2019 04:50:36
Also important to note that the only reason they got to 50 in the same time was Salah' s Chelsea spell of 2 in 13 games. For Liverpool he has 48 in 59 which is frightening and quicker than Torres.


3.) 21 Jan 2019 05:16:54
Im with Ed. Salah have quite some assists as well if Im not mistaken.


4.) 21 Jan 2019 05:31:57
But Ed01, In my Opinion Salah doesn't have that Silky first touch which made Torres's style of play and finishing classy. Don't get me wrong I like Salah a lot, I think his main attribute is his 6th sense to be in the right position at the right time.

{Ed001's Note - I think people are looking back at Torres all misty-eyed and forgetting what he was actually like. He was about lightning acceleration and strength. He may have looked more silky but that is just about looks, not actual ability. His skill was in getting the ball out of his feet quickly and hitting it early with a lot of power. In other words power and pace not finesse was Torres' main attributes. He did not have the ability to twist and turn in tight spaces like Salah can, because his touch was not as good as Salah's, he could not keep it tight to his feet and work magic the way Salah does.}


5.) 21 Jan 2019 06:46:23
48 in 59 is extraordinary.
For that remarkable statistic alone, it has to be Salah, though I agree with 01’s reasoning too.


6.) 21 Jan 2019 07:12:24
Thanks for the reply ed1 and everyone else. Very interesting to see the comparison. I didn't realize he has 48 in 59 also. that's absolutely nuts.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate, and yes, his numbers for us are incredible, especially as he has played so many games on the wing for us.}


7.) 21 Jan 2019 07:14:34
Can we just agree to have both in our dream team? Plus Stevie and Alonso maybe? 😇.


8.) 21 Jan 2019 08:20:22
One thing about Salah is he stays fit!

The only injury i can remember of his time with us so far is the dislocated shoulder. Apart from that, there has been no niggles or knocks i can think of.


9.) 21 Jan 2019 08:37:57
salah for me, it doesn't change the fact that torres was good though, salah's record with us will beat so many records even in other clubs if he was in any other club, he's simply magnificent.

{Ed025's Note - great player kaizer...pity about the diving though..


10.) 21 Jan 2019 09:08:52
Salah all day, man. 48 in 59 is in-freaking-sane numbers for 1 and a half seasons. Torres never matched those numbers esp. if you judge by the fact that Salah scored majority of his goals for the wing. Salah is the better player, all-round BUT I will say that Torres was boss as well cos he scored near ALL his goals from open play. No penalties and No free kicks. That is just as frightening cos we know CR7 scored near half his goals in the PL with penalties and free kicks. Great player and if we win the PL, he will be a KEY reason why.

As for the diving, he should stop doing that for sure BUT I think too much is being made of it really. Salah gets no credit for staying on his feet when challenged and the same media moaners say he should have gone down cos there was contact. Then, when he does go down with clear contact and a clear foul, they say he should have stayed on his feet and not dived or gone down easily. Again, MAKE UP YOUR MINDS!

The penalty vs Newcastle was a penalty cos it was reviewed and confirmed so non story there. The pens vs BHA and Arsenal were also correctly awarded. The flop vs Palace was him going down easily on the first challenge which to me, is not a dive. The only dive I saw vs Palace was from you guessed it, Zaha when he went down from a non challenge from Milner BUT hey, we know he is a serial diver so why bother talking about it?

{Ed025's Note - talking of serial divers...salah is extremely talented as is tom daley..


11.) 21 Jan 2019 09:21:58
But does it count that I loved torres as i was younger and more emotional back then and him leave in the way he did made sure I could not love a player the same way again?

Hope you haven't jinxed it lamborini!


12.) 21 Jan 2019 09:04:28
If only he was as good as Pickford eh Ed025.


13.) 21 Jan 2019 10:06:38
Ed25, you prolly want to go find out what diving actually means. Diving means lunging forward. Never seen Tom Daley fall backwards like Salah did but I guess you have, lol. Seriously tho, Salah went down too easily and needs to quit that, ASAP. That said, All the three pen incidents were clear penalties and awarded as such even the one vs Newcastle was reviewed after the fact and confirmed BUT I guess that fact was missing in your response. I wonder why, lol?

If you are looking for divers in that game, Zaha is the ONLY one who dived blatantly with NO contact from Milner. And if you are looking for serial divers, you can always look up legends like Ali, Lamela Kane (so many from one club, really? ), Zaha, Vardy (esp. ) and Hazard (who dived again vs Arsenal BUT no one mentioned it) . Cheers, man.

{Ed025's Note - i know what diving is brover...its CHEATING, there are loads of divers in the game and they are ruining the sport, salah is not the only one and the likes of zaha and even richarlison as well are bringing the game into disrepute and thats just naming three, they are falling over repeatedly to gain an unfair advantage and its actually practiced in training so a couple of pro,s i know tell me, its a very sad state of affairs and until the bungling neer do wells at the FA get a grip of it then it will continue to be a blight on this great game mate..


14.) 21 Jan 2019 10:11:45
Whiich team would most likely win out of Rafa’s class of 2008 with Salah leading the line, or the current first eleven with Torres up front? Im a complete fence-sitter with this.

Come on Ed025 Salah isn’t the only one mate to go down easy. You’ve been a bit quite on here of late mate not surprising with the form of your lot 😂. Can always count on you chirping up though to stick the knife in to us given any opportunity. How you been mate? What’s your verdict on your lads?

{Ed025's Note - my verdict on us virgil is that we are bloody awful mate, a bunch of under performing prima donnas if ever there was one, i replied to brover before that said he was not the only diver around, there are loads of them and its ruining the game as far as im concerned..

Ed25, I love the passion in your response and you are correct, on al accounts. Flopping or diving or whatever you want to call it, is cheating and the fact that it is coached by managers in training is the most pathetic of all. I remember Poch last season when Diver Alli, lamela and Harry Klaim, were on a diving tear, he defended them blatantly, saying it was okay if they needed to dive, they should and if I'm not mistaken, he said players are coached on it during training in South America hence, what's the prob? This is the kind of nonsense we are dealing with, my friend.

My issue here is that the media and pundits seem to want to pick on some and protect others based on the day of the week it is. On MOTD, Shearer made it a point to slate Salah for diving YET they conveniently avoided mentioning Zaha who blatantly dived in the same game. Same with last season. Mane got clipped at palace and cos he did not go down fast enuff or the "experts", they said he dived. Now when Kane dived at Anfield, the same Shearer sad that "If Kane felt the contact, he has a right to come down". See what I mean?

So according to this poor excuse for an expert, Kane has the "right" to go down upon contact BUT Mane and Salah don't? This is my problem. If you are going to call it out CALL IT OUT ON ALL FRONTS. Don't pick and choose when to do it to fit your narrative or move the goalposts, redefining diving when it suits you. I am super glad you are doing it ED25 and pls, keep doing it.

{Ed025's Note - one thing i will add redwolf is that when you are top of the tree (like liverpool are) pundits and the media will always look to scrutinize every move you make and look for flaws, its part of being the top dog im afraid mate....and of course i will try and help them as much as possible.. :)

Thank you lovers, thank you very much. I couldn't agree more ;) .

Spot on Ed1, he's being nothing short of incredible since the day he joined, he deserves to be at Liverpool.


18.) 21 Jan 2019 15:22:09
Ed25, you are right that when you are on top, people are coming for you and I can respect that. One thing tho. I do not recall all this nonsense happening all last season when City where ruling the roost. I even read once that Pep should not be slated that mjuch otherwise he would take his toys and go home. See the hypocrisy.

All I heard and read, was how City were the best thing English footie had ever seen and how Pep was revolutionalizing the game, even when he was getting his arse handed to him by Klopp, they always found a way to make it look like he and City were poor and all that, making all types of excuses for him.


Apart from that, you are dead on. Also, You are free to help them out BUT the diff. btw them and you is that I can't come after them directly if I think they are OTT hence will not feel my full fury. You on the other hand, are a sitting duck. Peace and Love, my friend.

{Ed025's Note - love it mate..

Best of luck to our red men in Kiev. Win or lose im so proud of this team and the epic journey we have had this season. No one and i mean no one expected us to be sitting here 2 hours before a Champions league final and actually be confident of beating the current european champions.

Thanks to all the eds for the hard work ye do for us. Really hope we all enjoy tonight, i think we will win it. Nerves are totally shot already. I had to go to the cliffs of moher in the west of irelqnf today to take my mind off the match.

I know our boys will do us proud. You all will never walk alone. Everyone enjoy the game and the aftermath and be safe.

Mane is going to madri. Your friends rumours are spot on. He will be on the plane and will touch down into madrid. Also off to madrid will be firmino and salah. Erikson of spurs will also be heading to madrid. Though they all will be playing in the CL final and not signing for any other clubs

I don't think we ever should return to players that forced their ways out of the club, Coutinho's overall game went seriously downhill especially in the last 6 months he was at the club, as said he threw his toys out of the pram to try and force his way out of the club and get his move to Barca, In my opinion, if any player waits until the end of the season and tries to leave on good terms then fair enough, but the things he did can't be forgotten. But for me the biggest reason why we shouldn't bring him back is because our overall game has improved so much since his departure. We were too reliant on him and our movement of the ball to play the counter attack slowed down when he was in the team. It would be a major step back to bring him back. He made his bed, he needs to sleep in it now. Our club has moved on and we are having an amazing season, we need to look forward not back.

Also a big thank you to all the eds, I know you get allot of stick sometimes, but all of us are grateful for all the hard work you do to keep us in the loop.

I wouldn't take coutinho back. He forced his way out and acted terribly to get his move to Barcelona. Our play immediately improved once he left, he didn't do the press as well as the current players we have. Also i feel because he was able to produce that bit of magic the other players seemed to rely on him to pull something out of the bag and try pick out coutinho when there was better option available. As for coutinho, i thank him for his service, but he forced his way out, and ultimeately, the club has moved on, we are in a much better position now compared to 12 months ago.

Great servant for the club, for me before his bad injury a few seasons ago against chelsea he was one of our best players in my opinion and felt he would succeed gerrard as captain some day, alas it didn't happen. But a great player for us over 10 years, he had a tough start to life at anfield but changed his game and became a real talented player. If im not mistaken he is the last surviving player from rafa's reign. Hope he does what is best for him. Would love to see him stay until the end of the season but if he does go ill be happy for him. YNWA Lucas Leiva.

Agree with Hart, he is a rubbish keeper, even flicked on the Man city game tonight briefly and there he was flapping at crosses. Credit to Migs, at least he is a decent shotstopper, but if Hart was with our defence, he would probably be worse then Migs in my opinion, definitely just as bad, he will struggle when he moves on to a team who do not have as good of a defence as City does.

As for Sakho, has it really gotten that bad with him? I have not really been following his story since he was sent home from America. Is Klopp looking to get rid because of his attitude? I thought he was still injured, that's why he was still not in the team.

Firmino is just as important if not more important in my opinion to what Klopp wants the players to do in attack. Anyone who can't see what he brings to the team clearly does not understand the way we play. Firmino may not be getting 20+ goals every season but he has consistently gotten 10-15 goals, important goals at that, he also creates the space and gives the assists to others in the team. We scored 89 goals this season in the PL, 5 more than last season, we clearly are doing something right in attack. Trust in Firmino, trust in Klopp.

Focus on the next game. Our next game is against Leicester. let's not look past that game or worry about other teams. We can only worry about the opponent we face next. There is a hell of a lot of football yet to be played. We saw City drop points in December, we will also drop points before the end. Just we have to try win our next game and get another 3 points. let's all just enjoy the ride.

YNWA.

Thanks for the reply ed1 and everyone else. Very interesting to see the comparison. I didn't realize he has 48 in 59 also. that's absolutely nuts.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate, and yes, his numbers for us are incredible, especially as he has played so many games on the wing for us.}

Mobdro is very good on your phone, if you are using laptops then normally i use either sportcategory or firstrowsports. Often times though it freezes just before the goal is scored as what happened to me today for Liverpools 3rd goal.

As for the game itself, very nervous game, one i had fears going in to the game but great to get the 3 points, i hate to play Palace, they always are a bogey team for us. Today was a potential banana skin for us, but we got through it. Defence was a bit leaky, but we have so many injuries to our defence that it wasnt surprising, we aren't going to keep a clean sheet every game, we just have the be sure that on days like today that we can score the vital goal. Big psychological boost for us to win today i feel especially when they are the same side who beat Man city a few weeks ago. On to the next game against Leicester which will be a tough game.

100% agree with mk. Can only play one game at a time. Ill only celebrate IF and when we lift the pl trophy but not before. Allot of football left to be played we literally are only half way there and any team can beat anyone on their day. One game at a time and enjoy the ride. YNWA.
