Looks like VVD, TAA and Gomez will all be missing on Wednesday.

We don't have much pace to deal with Vardy. Looks like we will have to defend deeper, no other option.

Just Pray VVD can get off his sick bed.

1.) 29 Jan 2019 01:56:05
guess we will have to go back to the old style of "score one more than the opposition"


2.) 29 Jan 2019 06:29:35
Nooooo. Virgil has to be ok surely, I’ve had a cold and cough last week or so but I’ve still gone to work lol.


3.) 29 Jan 2019 06:37:09
I must admit I'm quite concerned about this game going on that news, fingers crossed we can get the three points but I'm not very confident about this one.


4.) 29 Jan 2019 07:26:39
It’s going to snow in he midlands this week, maybe Vardy and Gray will simultaneously slip and twist an ankle. looks left and right)


5.) 29 Jan 2019 07:42:13
Salah, I share the same worries and thoughts mate. Could well be a struggle especially if Virgil is out. Don’t like the thought of Vardy, Gray and co running at Matip and Camacho. Are well it is what it is I guess and we will find out soon enough we’re we are at.


6.) 29 Jan 2019 07:53:34
We beat Leicester at their place earlier in the season, I have no doubt we'll see the off again tomorrow. May be a bit scrappy but I'm confident 👍.


7.) 29 Jan 2019 07:54:27
Bloody hell lads - what's going on? We have just had 11 days off, and we are playing at Anfield under the lights. Our defence and midfield will be similar to theirs but our front 3 will cause them all sorts of problems.

The team will need the support more than ever on Wednesday, stay positive. It won't all be plain sailing in winning the league.

No more negative posts.


8.) 29 Jan 2019 07:51:19
This is why our manager's use to say no one man is bigger than the club. We all start panicking because VVD is out, we just need to support the other £300M+ worth of talent we put out on the pitch.
Here's a stat to give you hope. Leicester have been beaten in the Premier league 9 times with teams that didn't contain VVD, TAA or any of our regular back line.

11.) 29 Jan 2019 09:09:45
I’m no expert but I’d reckon they are more worried about our attack than we need to be about theirs.
It’ll be very difficult for them to attack at all when we smother them and bag 3 in the first half!


12.) 29 Jan 2019 10:45:56
For goodness sake, we are Liverpool, we are top of the Premier League, we are playing at home, it’s Leicester not Barcelona, they have lost 9 out of 23 Premier League games, we have got 29 points more then them - and they have got Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire in central
defence! Get a grip lads and have some faith in our manager and his squad.


13.) 29 Jan 2019 11:26:20
Have you been hanging around Walter salah? This is the first time I've seen a negative comment from you. ;)


14.) 29 Jan 2019 11:28:18
Van dijk will play unless he's still got the runs until 20 minutes before the game. He's made of stronger stuff and knows how important he is to us. I have no doubt he will play.

{Ed025's Note - gastroenteritis is a bad bug nun, if he plays i hope he does,nt lovren himself.. :)


15.) 29 Jan 2019 11:44:59
Surely you could lend him a couple of your immodiums ed25? 😉.

{Ed025's Note - either that or a pair of my lycra shorts KK.. :)


16.) 29 Jan 2019 12:49:44
If VVD sharted early in the game then that would prompt the Leicester players from getting too close - perfect solution for me.


17.) 29 Jan 2019 12:52:14
I'm confident of a 3-0 victory.


18.) 29 Jan 2019 13:28:08
I’ve seen us beat Leicester loads of times before we signed VVD and before we were anywhere near as good as we are now.
Why is everyone panicking so much?


19.) 29 Jan 2019 15:41:18
Alisson, Milner, Matip, Lovren, Robertson are enough against Leicester City.


20.) 29 Jan 2019 15:59:10
Uh no Milner maybe Camacho.


21.) 29 Jan 2019 17:34:43
Wow, a couple of injuries and this site suddenly turns in an episode of Dad's Army. Don't panic, don't panic!


22.) 29 Jan 2019 17:37:54
and I get told all season to be realistic? hypocrites.


23.) 29 Jan 2019 17:38:36
Klippertys klopp, hahaha about right mate lol.


24.) 29 Jan 2019 20:10:13
This is my worst fear. in the space of a week we will be behind city playing catch up. the league is finally lost even earlier than I expected.
Was good whilst it lasted.


25.) 29 Jan 2019 22:17:24
And suddenly its a chance to go 7 clear :)

If the impossible happens would there be a parade on Monday?

markp08

1.) 10 May 2019 22:45:54
The club have released the dates for the parades if any where to happen. At least that's what me ma said. I'm sure the official site will have this information. I think she read it in the echo.


2.) 10 May 2019 23:05:48
Read it now mate thanks. 2 potential parades the day after each match.


 

 

07 May 2019 23:54:10
Benny are you posting tonight?

markp08

1.) 08 May 2019 12:16:37
In benny's defence markp08, you were saying klopp should stand down after the 3 0 loss at Barcelona mate.


 

 

07 May 2019 23:00:51
Like ed0333 I booked a hotel in the city for the league parade. Just now booked in the city for the cl final. Prices going up by the minute.

Hope I will need both but one will see me just fine.

markp08

{Ed0333's Note - I’ll be in Liverpool on Sunday hoping my people can arrange a ticket for the game. If not I’ll be watching in a pub in Anfield somewhere. Luckily I have a friend in Madrid who can put me up for the final as a Hotel room will cost more than a lock of Jesus’ hair. Lord knows how I’m gonna get a ticket for the final?


1.) 07 May 2019 23:22:02
League parade will be 2nd June after the champions league final now😁👍.


2.) 07 May 2019 23:49:47
yea you might be right.

Rob Jones I loved that guy had his T shirt.


3.) 09 May 2019 22:01:37
Thank god i live in italy. 1/6 tickets from italy to madrid €25 each way. try adding a stopover and come and have a night out with me before madrid.


 

 

30 Apr 2019 09:53:56
Liverpool premier league legends, how many are there? A few are obvious ones

Gerrard
Fowler

Then it becomes like a wedding guest list, if you pick a player then you have to choose others. Like picking Carra, means Hyppia and then Agger. It is very hard to complete a list and I guess the number is around 10. Players we should consider please.

markp08

1.) 30 Apr 2019 10:27:56
Dalglish is my number one but there's too many to list.

Clemence, Hansen, Souness, Rush, Barnes, Fowler, Gerrard, Hyypia, Hunt, Beardsley.
Too many to list, of modern day who will be in that list? for me Firmino, Salah, VVD, Alisson, these lads will be talked about years from now imo.

{Ed001's Note - Premier League legends?}


2.) 30 Apr 2019 10:38:02
I’d say carra for sure, but not agger, whilst he was great, he did not stay fit long enough.

In terms of quality, Torres and Alonso in recent years, but they didn’t stay too long. Bobby Alisson Robertson, Trent, mane salah and vvd have potential to be, need a few more years though.

Milner is a premier league legend in my eyes, maybe not a Liverpool one mind, youngest goal scorer at one time, top ten appearances and assists.


3.) 30 Apr 2019 10:39:21
Ah my bad, I missed the Premier league bit lol.


4.) 30 Apr 2019 10:44:14
Firmane it is not easy. What about Garcia? Gary Mac?


5.) 30 Apr 2019 10:49:05
We could end up with more legends from this current team than we have had in the whole premier league era.

{Ed025's Note - if you get 2 mark thats more than you have had in the last 29 years mate..


6.) 30 Apr 2019 10:51:20
What defines a legend? No one in the current team can be classed as a legend as they haven't actually achieved anything yet. That could change in a month's time obviously. But what about the whole CL 2005 winning squad? Technically the only PL LFC players to win a major trophy.

{Ed025's Note - well theres gerrard stuie.....and thats it im afraid mate..


7.) 30 Apr 2019 11:12:28
Classic Ed025 but a little harsh. Not Fowler or Carra?

Carra was awesome in that final and won other trophies too. Body on the line in the semi and final. If we go with your statement it means Everton and most other premier league sides have zero.

What about Baines?

{Ed025's Note - robbie and jamie were very good players for liverpool mark, but they hardly come under a "legends" banner mate, everton and most other teams are the same barring chelsea arsenal and utd who have actually won the prem i feel..


8.) 30 Apr 2019 11:42:13
I take your point, but I used to go to the matches then and from 17 Fowler was about our best player. A local lad who I loved going to watch.

Fowler has to be on my list. I grew up watching these players so am biased so Carra and Hypia also make my list.

It is a very subjective thing. At Sunderland Kevin Phillips would be a legend to their fans I imagine.

{Ed025's Note - i might actually give you robbie mark, he was one of my favourites too being a local lad, jamie is from bootle so in my book it does,nt even qualify him as a scouser mate.. :)


9.) 30 Apr 2019 11:56:16
Depends on what makes a legend.
You’ve either got to win major trophy’s for me or be genuinely world class and break records or win player of the year awards etc.
So Champs league winning squad and the squad that won the treble back in 2000.
Outside of that? I don’t think so. Let’s see what the current crop manage.


10.) 30 Apr 2019 11:57:26
Kyrgiakos has got to be there along with Klavan and Coates.


11.) 30 Apr 2019 11:57:26
Kyrgiakos has got to be there along with Klavan and Coates.

{Ed025's Note - were looking for legends..not bellends ST.. :)


12.) 30 Apr 2019 12:08:58
Mikey I struggled to get ed to give me Fowler so I doubt very much he will give us Traore. :)


13.) 30 Apr 2019 12:18:23
Stuie boy has got it spot on again.

Premier league legends for Liverpool?
My starting point would be all those involved in the champions league win of 2005.

Then I would include anyone who has won the league and played in the premier league for us - Barnes, Rush.

Next I’d look at other iconic players and only Fowler would be a definite and possibly Gary Mac.

Good question though 👍.


14.) 30 Apr 2019 12:45:36
Don’t think I’ve disagreed with you before Ed025 but I do now. Every club have their legends of the premier League. I count Fowler, Carra, Gerrard, Hyppia just to name a few as LFC PL legends even though they never won it. I’m sure you consider Everton to have some as well. You don’t have to have won it to be a club legend. Would you consider Mahrez or drinkwater as Leicester legends. Le tissier is a saints legend, Philips- Sunderland, shearer- Newcastle etc. None of them won it. Shearer I know won it with Blackburn btw but he is called a Newcastle legend. Love your banter, sacarsm and smart arse replies btw 25.

{Ed025's Note - i just think "legend" is a step too far doohamlet, all good players of course but i think it detracts from the players like kenny, souness, hansen etc who were real legends, just my opinion of course and no not 1 everton player could be classed as a legend in the premier league era because just like the reds they have not done enough to earn the status of "legend", i suppose its just how you look at it mate and how tinted your glasses are at the time..


15.) 30 Apr 2019 12:50:26
I thought about Jan, Rush, Barnes etc but they were better before the PL. Dudeck was a legend in the final not sure all the squad are legends though, Kewell etc.

I loved Rob Jones I reckon that guy could well have been a legend.


16.) 30 Apr 2019 12:50:40
Reina has to be in there for me. Wasn’t a fan of how things ended but he was a great player for the red men.


17.) 30 Apr 2019 13:28:26
Gerrard fowler and carra for me.

Barnes rush and brucie have automatic legend status before the prem started.

Gerrard is obvious.

Carra had over 700 games for liverpool and i think any club would have that as an automatic legend application approved. Plus he was part of the magic in 2005.
(mini legend status for alll those involved that night)

Fowler for me was a legend after about 3 seasons such was my love for the guy. My favourite liverpool player. You don't have the given title god and not be a legend. I scored too many goals pretending to be fowler for me not to argue his legend status.

On a side note liverpool need another young striker breaking through. One we can call our own through and through. Rush. Fowler. Owen (despite the ending owen was great before the injuries) . After a few false dawns im keeping my fingers crossed that brewster can fill those boots. Even if he might not totally fit into the through and through part. The kid looks a great prospect.


18.) 30 Apr 2019 13:37:30
If the question is "Premier League Legends who played for Liverpool", i'd have to say it's only Gerrard, Carra and (at a squeeze) Fowler, as he didn't fulfil his true potential.

If the question is "Liverpool Legends who played in the Premier League", then add all the 2005 team.


19.) 30 Apr 2019 13:43:12
From the PL era of this millennium, I would go with the following:
Gerrard, Fowler, Alonso, Torres, Suarez, Hyypia, Carr’s. Although not sure we can call them all legends, but the first three for sure.

Interested to hear thoughts on the other end of spectrum - who would make your bellends list? From recent memory I would go for - Roy Hodgson (not a player but still tops the list), Ngog, Konchesky, Djimi T, Voronin.


20.) 30 Apr 2019 14:06:54
If you exaggerate how good a player was, then you could call any player a legend.
Jamie Carragher is the perfect example of this.
If you where to ask how many world class players we have had, you would get a different set of players.
Example, Lovren called himself world class, because he played in The Champions League and World Cup finals. What a Legend!


21.) 30 Apr 2019 14:09:05
Klopping, unfair to tarnish them with that brush. If you were an average player and Liverpool came in for you, would you say, "sorry, I don't think I'm good enough" and turn it down?


22.) 30 Apr 2019 14:50:25
Stevie maybe the only through legend in that he wouldve got in every other 1st 11 for a good decade or so, and he won some big trophys with us. Virgil will become one. and if Salah wins the golden boot again next year he'd have to be up there.


23.) 30 Apr 2019 14:57:05
Haha Ed I find it insulting when people from bootle and Huyton call us Wirral boys wools. We’re the originals mate we was there before the pool and you nicked our accent 😉.

{Ed025's Note - dont start all that lark lerchy, the border runs from the river up to county rd and as wide as garston (even though most of them marry their sisters), the rest are prowsters (pretend scousers) mate.. :)


24.) 30 Apr 2019 16:16:33
I would say Gerrard only because of his ability and his length of service and Carra also because he was also a one man club also but definitely not on his footballing ability lol.


25.) 30 Apr 2019 16:31:35
Ed025, for the record, despite my poster’s name (I live on the Wirral) I was born and brought up in Dovecot. Please tell me I can legitimately call myself a Scouser!

{Ed025's Note - yeah your a scouser WW, but coming from dovecot you will be seen like the mad aunt that nobody in the family talk about.. :)


26.) 30 Apr 2019 16:54:31
Ed025, you are too near to the truth for comfort there mate. Dovecot Divvy would be nearer the truth as a moniker but nowhere near as impressive as Wirral Wonder.
Many, many years ago in the days of the “footie special” trains to away games, I alighted from the train at Broadgreen Station and was regaled with shouts of “Woollyback’ from those staying on until Lime Street. Scarred me for life mate. I am so relieved that you have confirmed my status as a Scouser.
Scouse by birth, Red by the grace of a God.

{Ed025's Note - its unusual actually to find a scouser who is a red WW so well done there, maybe you had a norwegian milkman back in the day mate?.. :)


27.) 30 Apr 2019 17:14:18
I always thought wools were from saint helens and us birkenheaders are jedis? Love the banter Ed as much as o know I ain’t a scouser I still love the city and the baby’s mate. My old flat used to overlook the city so it’s hard not to love it. Trying to explain to a southerner where the Wirral is is a nightmare. I once told a guy I support tranmere and his response was you must be a proper scouser then 😂.

{Ed025's Note - no lerchy, history tells us that people from the wirral are welsh folk who could not swim far enough to become proper scousers, a lot of them are good people but you would not want them living this side mate as they tend to be a bit snooty and wash their hands even if they have only had a pee mate.. :)


28.) 30 Apr 2019 17:40:23
Ed025, as my arl fella used to say “Everton er for tapere, sønn”.

{Ed025's Note - i wish i knew what that meant mate..


29.) 30 Apr 2019 17:48:06
Haha Ed I take it you ain’t never been to Birkenhead or seacombe. Washing anything seems to be a cardinal sin.

{Ed025's Note - love it lerchy..


30.) 30 Apr 2019 19:44:56
Good question!

Gerrard
Fowler
Alonso
Mascherano
Hypia
Dudek (for that save)
Owen (yeah, yeah, he went to utd but we loved ince when he came to us. Owen is one of the biggest players to come out of liverpool in the Premier league era.
Torres
Carragher
Kewell (maybe)
Lucas (100%) should have been top of the list!
Reina (i guess)
Cisse

Everone who was in that champions league team, bar traore, nah eff it, djimi too are liverpool legends. You lift big ears and that's legendary status.

So then id say
Henchoz
Luis garcia and any others i've forgotton, babbel (rb)


31.) 02 May 2019 14:25:22
Kewell mascherano and cisse? 🤣.


 

 

01 Mar 2019 15:08:37
Away form agains't the better sides concerns me
Spurs we Won but they had a lot of issues at the time.
Arsenal draw
Chelsea draw
Utd draw
City lost
CL 3 games lost them all (one agains't a really average side) . Everton will play very defensive and it will be difficult to break them down. First goal is massive.

Those poor results show how well we have done at home and in our other away matches. IMO we have to win on Sunday anything else will be points dropped. I hope Klopp doesn't go negative with Fabs, Gini, Hendo it would be a mistake. It means we would be totally reliant on the full backs for creativity, while also needing Robbo and Trent to be solid in the back 4.

markp08

1.) 01 Mar 2019 16:13:36
Everton aren't built to play defensively, and it's a derby, they'll need to show something as an attacking force, and we'll pick them off.


2.) 01 Mar 2019 16:18:06
You lost me at ‘away form against the better sides’. Make no mistake, Everton will try come hard at us, and in a competitive derby form can go out the window, but they’re nothing like those teams and quality is not the issue.

The main risk is the first 20-30mins when they’ll be all guns blazing and I think that might well be the exact midfield he goes for to ensure we take the sting out of the game. I personally hope he plays Keita in there though.


3.) 01 Mar 2019 16:21:53
Are Everton one of the better sides?


4.) 01 Mar 2019 16:31:45
they would be next on the list of our hardest away games. They will play defensive 100% and if we have that midfield I am not sure we will beat them. Everton played well an Anfield probably deserved a draw. I hope Keita plays.

Don't be arrogant or dismissive of Everton it might come back and bite you.


5.) 01 Mar 2019 16:38:54
Another excellent post there Mark! Piching all the areas of concern! Most of our loses came when we played pragmatic beauty. I assume that’s now changed and we are going to press them and when you press they make mistakes and that results in turnover of possession.
TAA, Fabinho and Wijnaldum must start else it’s a draw!


6.) 01 Mar 2019 16:40:06
Under estimate any Team in the Premier at your Peril. I won't be. (have had to put that as Mrs 007 reads my post's)


7.) 01 Mar 2019 16:47:25
Agains't has got to be the weirdest use of an apostrophe ever. What does it mean?


8.) 01 Mar 2019 17:17:34
I agree that anything other then a win in a football match means you have dropped points.


9.) 01 Mar 2019 18:05:22
' IMO we have to win on Sunday anything else will be points dropped. '

Is that so? :)


10.) 01 Mar 2019 18:08:15
We need to win. City will win so we need to win. And if they don't win, we need to capitalise and win haha, there's no other option other than to beat Everton.


11.) 01 Mar 2019 18:14:06
Good thing we've played all the top teams away! only losing to one by the way.


12.) 01 Mar 2019 19:46:46
I don't understand the original comment. "Away against the better sides". What does that mean? Everton are not in Spurs' league and never were so there goes that argument. We took points of ALL the top 6 away from home bar City (which was a squeaker and could have gone our way) . Also, we lost some games away from home in the CL and the last time I checked, Everton are not on the same planet as PSG Red Star and Napoli so again, I don't understand the original post.

Now, that does not mean we should under-estimate them cos well, they are a team that can STILL beat or take points off us so they must be respected. After all, you don't go virtually beaten in the PL if you don't respect your opponents along the way. Also, it's a derby so I expect our boys to be up for it hence, there is NOTHING to fear BUT fear itself.


13.) 01 Mar 2019 20:16:02
The "Golden Rule" for any Derby, "Keep ye Cool" as you have a better chance of winning a Derby with Eleven Men on the Pitch rather than Ten?


14.) 01 Mar 2019 20:16:06
Everton are better than Red Star. It will be harder than West Ham and we couldn't beat them. The point to the post is not that Everton are a great side but if we go defensive and not with the right team I can see us dropping vital points.

A point away to City would of been a point won.


15.) 01 Mar 2019 20:20:00
I have no concern with our away form against the better sides.


16.) 01 Mar 2019 20:41:37
We have lost our last 5 away in Europe.

We have only taken 6 points from 5 games agains't our top 6 rivals. I think it needs work to improve it. You wouldn't take that the start of next season.


17.) 01 Mar 2019 20:43:03
markp08, so let me get this straight, a point away at City would have been a point won but points away at United, Arsenal and Chelsea are points dropped and is concerning to you?


18.) 01 Mar 2019 20:53:39
I'm analyzing. If a loss means points dropped, then what does a draw mean? Does it mean a point gained or two points dropped? On the field it means nobody lost or won. But on the table it doesn't have the same consequence. Gaining a point or losing two points is not exactly the same, is it?

Yes. Just thought I would continue with the obvious and the pointless. 😉.


19.) 01 Mar 2019 21:03:37
We are top of the league for a reason.


20.) 01 Mar 2019 21:42:26
Exactly Welsh.


21.) 01 Mar 2019 23:04:18
Aray you’re only pointless if you lose ;)

Away form against the big six doesn’t concern me, we have played all of them away and we are top. Would I like more points, of course. But we can’t change it.

Sunday will be a tough game because they will be up for it and so will their fans. Only our best performance will do. We just need to keep our cool.


22.) 01 Mar 2019 23:37:10
Just to be clear Mark08 does that mean we've also won 6points away from home against our top six rivals 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔.

Technically, both teams start with a point. If a team wins then they gain points, if they lose, they lose a point. Kind of makes sense when it usually take around 38 points to stay up. Break even and your ok.

That would work fine if it was 2 points for a win, but it ain’t.

Not sure our away form has been that bad against the top teams, we unfortunately ran into Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal at their strongest time of the season and battled out good away draws imo. The city loss was fine margins. If you win at home against your rivals and draw away you should win the league.

We lost once against the top away teams and that concerns you? I would take that every season, we had a blip and drew few games, where others had a blip and lost games, again i would take that every season if it puts are in the position we are in now, nobody gave us a chance to get close to city after how many points we was behind them last year, but here we are top with 10 games to go and only lost once, im very proud of the lads and giving us hope we can win the league this year. what ever happens get behind them show them our support and get us over the line be proud we are liverpool and enjoy the ride be proud of them guys ynwa.

zero chance. I thought Griezman would be possible but looks Barcelona bound as do many players.

Let's park this topic for another day.

Today could be one of the best days ever and we should all be focused on today's games.

I really like Milner but if we buy 2 new full backs and a Brandt type player I just don't think he will get the games he requires.

Gini
Hendo
Kieta
Ox
Fabs
Brandt type

If Fabs plays most games as the holding midfielder then that only leaves 2 places. I don't think he will want to stay just as cover.
Maybe even Trent for a few games.

You have to be realistic Redlad, it would mean either de ligt or Gomez sitting on the bench that is never going to happen. It is the same reason why we won't buy £100m forwards as it would mean they or Firmino would be benched.

It is going to be very hard to find players in the summer because our first 11 is now so much better. I expect 2 back up defenders who can push for starts and a player like Brandt who would offer something different. Modric though would be my first choice but doesn't seem much chance.

When did we drastically improve after Coutinho left? 1st Jan 2018 we were 3rd in the prem at the end of the season we were 4th. We started to concede less goals due to VVD coming but we didn't score more league goals.

Of course we miss him to some extent. Did you not watch the Man U or the Everton games, this is when he could have made the difference.

World class players sitting on the bench? Can't remember Messi, Ronaldo etc being on the bench. We have a few players who can be world class

Allison
VVD
Mane
Salah
and I suppose the full backs could but I will never be alive to see us have world class on the bench. If we sign anyone close to world class then they will definitely be in the first 11. Our midfield has no one anywhere near world class.

LFC never got the memo Kim we never attacked them in either game, so if we didn't how can you expect the others teams to. If we want to beat City we need to do it on the pitch in the league.

He looks good in the Palace team as they play to suit him. He doesn't get anywhere near enough goals and doesn't work hard enough. No thanks.

Lacazette would be better IMO.

Kane certainly won't be match fit. But very very dangerous from the bench.

I like hime MK but he would need at least a season to bed in. But I suppose you could say that about most players. Fabinho, Keita, Ox inc.
