Think Sturridge will start tomorrow Ed?


{Ed025's Note - no RTID, i heard he was suffering with split ends mate :)....hes just not good enough to displace any of the front 3 imo mate..

1.) 24 Aug 2018 08:09:56
I would say Bobby hasn't been at it but its early days.

2.) 24 Aug 2018 08:45:34
id say start studger, he looks in form and there has been a different vibe about him in the pre-season and has scored few goals too.
Can start and give way to bobby around the 70 minute mark if it is required. Bobby i feel needs to keep it simple and smart. He has a very good squad all around him and he can feel free to be the authoritative striker now. doesn't have to drop that much, unless its to win possession back.

3.) 24 Aug 2018 08:51:14
I think we need to be able to switch one out at a time, gove then periodic rests and still be able to perform. I’d rather that than resting all three at once and expect a front three of Lallana Sturridge and Shaqiri to be at the same level.
lol at city, mahrez sterling played one week, Jesus the next and sane hasn’t even started yet. I know their gulf is less, but I would not go into saturdays game with a front three of mane Salah and Sturridge thinking we lack quality.

4.) 24 Aug 2018 09:18:30
Bobby will start, he needs run of games to get sharpness back. I can see him scoring tomorrow, the man is a class act and 1st and foremost a team player. I like the idea of Sturridge being an impact sub.

5.) 24 Aug 2018 10:40:04
If it isn't broken don't fix it, that front 3 got us to a champions league final. Bobby is class and will rightfully start.

6.) 24 Aug 2018 11:00:05
But they can't play every game Adam, and bobby looked a bit sluggish the he last 2 games, not saying he shouldn't start and with all due respect to Brighton, it might be a game to concider it,

7.) 24 Aug 2018 11:00:14
I would start Shaqiri in midfield tomorrow alongside 2 of hendo, milner, keita or wiji.
Brighton will park the bus so we need some further creativity from deep.

8.) 24 Aug 2018 11:17:39
We are playing 1 game a week why would you rotate? Do it when we play 3 or 2 games a week.

9.) 24 Aug 2018 12:38:52
Don't change a winning side unless you need is the old maxim. The front 3 pick themselves, and as others have mentioned before Bobby is lacking sharpness, which he won't regain sitting on the bench.

10.) 24 Aug 2018 12:50:40
Our front 3 needs a nice run of games to get firing on all cylinders again so that’s what I would do.
The rest are back ups not starters.

11.) 24 Aug 2018 16:33:08
I think we are more likely to see Shaqiri start tomorrow rather than Sturridge.

12.) 24 Aug 2018 16:48:21
If players need a rest at game 3 then there’s something wrong! Play Bobby every game I say, we are a different animal when he plays!

13.) 24 Aug 2018 18:31:22
Firmino starts for me. If anything, I'd just swap him for Sturridge with 20mins to go if he looks sluggish or if we're 2-0 up.

14.) 24 Aug 2018 18:54:49
The season has just started and we have almost a full week between the first 4 games. Why make any unnecessary changes now. There will be plenty of times during the season where squad players will get plenty of chances. They need to be patient and take their chance when it comes.

15.) 24 Aug 2018 20:00:13
It's 2 games in the whole team looked sluggish salah for me looks of also

But teams take time to get going very short pre season for the lads at the world cup aswell

Patients lads.

{Ed025's Note - i disagree dezy, hammered the "ammers" and comfortably dealt with a tricky visit to palace mate...i really dont know what you guys want!..

16.) 24 Aug 2018 21:30:31
I think we should just leave it up to Jurgen, why the sudden need to start meddling with the team?
All the players wear monitors and are constantly assessed so relax and enjoy the ride Reds.

17.) 24 Aug 2018 22:54:15
Give Sturridge 15-20 mins at the end once we're 4-0 up.

18.) 24 Aug 2018 22:11:18
Go ed Polecat lad, is right.
Jurgen will do what he needs to do, although Bobby is first on the sheet for me followed by Alisson Becker.
Going for a win to nil again, 3-0 or 4-0.



28 Mar 2017 10:45:23
Ed, do you see flannagan pushing on and getting a chance next season or do you think that ship has sailed? Cheers in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Whilst I am sure Jon Flanagan would relish the opportunity to return to the Liverpool squad I very much doubt that he is on Klopp's mind at all. Unfortunately I suspect that Liverpool would be open to selling Flanagan in the summer - he will make a good buy for someone.}

1.) 28 Mar 2017 10:57:06
I'd say he will go to Celtic under Rodgers can't see any premier league teams being interested In him.

{Ed002's Note - I think that would be a very good option if they did not have Lustig and Gamboa plus cover already in place.}

2.) 28 Mar 2017 12:16:48
Suspected as much, cheers.

3.) 28 Mar 2017 12:47:11
In a squad so severely lacking in fight and desire, the inevitable sale of Flannagan is criminal and if Klopp doesn't find a way to bring in more character/ get some out of the players we already have, it could be a terminal one. Right now, considering how much we need his attitude, I'd take him over everyone except maybe Bellerin in the PL.

4.) 28 Mar 2017 13:05:23
Could a Swap Deal for him and Tierney be an Option ed? Flanagan could play leftback for them?

{Ed002's Note - Why on earth would they consider something like that. Give away their outstanding youngster for a player they have shown no interest in and would need to play out of position - would he be above Emilio Izaguirre in the pecking order even?}

5.) 28 Mar 2017 13:34:42
Sorry Ed was only asking.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

6.) 28 Mar 2017 15:27:29
Have to say I hope he surprises us all and gets a look in pre season, haven't had player with his attitude at the back since Carragher, if he can prove he's fit of course.

7.) 28 Mar 2017 15:58:54
Wouldn't we want retain Flanagan (and Wisdom) as he is Trained at the Club and would be considered Home-Grown for Champions/ Europa League squad registration. Who do you think will make the cut as the 4 Home-Grown players trained at the club?
Correct me if I am wrong, but registering U21 players would certainly come at the cost of squad depth.

{Ed002's Note - That would be a waste of their careers - Liverpool using them to meet quota. They wouldn't get a game.}

8.) 28 Mar 2017 17:33:14
Its a shame, but often players don't recover from such horrible injuries, or at least if they do it takes several years and most clubs are not that patient.

I really wanted him to work out as he was that scouse spine, and I will always remember his goal against Spuds!

9.) 28 Mar 2017 19:47:06
I don't care if I get down voted, sadly he just isn't good enough. He's a local lad with loads of passion and I admire him for it and during the 13/ 14 season he was a revelation but since the injury he has gone so far backwards and now can't get into Burnley's side, I mean Lowton isn't a bad player but if Flanno was anywhere near our level he would be starting ahead of him, at least occasionally.

10.) 28 Mar 2017 20:40:55
I agree with HX Red.

11.) 29 Mar 2017 03:41:28
I suspect the same fate awaits danny ings, these serious injuries cost the players vital momentum, TAA has took advantage of Flanagan's situation and milner was given the left back spot, his loan move to burnley has been a disaster.

12.) 30 Mar 2017 03:41:33
I understand the desire to have a passionate scouse lad to replace the like of Gerrard and Carra but if you aren't good enough, you aren't good enough. Unfortunately for the lad he's just not up to scratch.

{Ed001's Note - he showed he is up to scratch, but he is recovering from a serious injury. I would give him a bit longer personally. It takes years to get over what he has had and his attitude is first class.}



20 Jul 2014 16:47:18
Hi ed's, what's the situation with Ron Vlaar? Great World Cup and very much a stand out player in a very average Villa side. I believe there's only a year left on his contract and would be much cheaper than Lovren. Have we or anyone shown an interest? Cheers in advance


{Ed002's Note - Others yes, Liverpool no.}

1.) He's old and he was average at Villa last season!

2.) I think you may want to check what villa fans thought of him last season before you call him their "stand out" defender

3.) Are Man U looking at him ed?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

23 Jan 2020 22:14:15
Ed if your about, quick question, do you think Duncan might end up at Rangers with Stevie? Thinking about seeing what odds I can get on it 🤣 completely get it if you don't want to offer an opinion.


{Ed001's Note - I don't think he would want to go there to be 3rd choice.}

1.) 24 Jan 2020 09:35:53
No then he probably won't get as first choice striker in isl hahaha.



02 Nov 2019 19:15:37
Surely that's yellow card and simulation? He threw his leg out, arms outstretched mid air in a bid to show the ref he'd been touched, clearly could of and should of steadied himself, how can VAR not see this? Please tell me if you think I'm wrong but this really is killing football for me.


1.) 02 Nov 2019 19:58:04
Any more details on what this is about rtid?

2.) 02 Nov 2019 21:03:43
OP, what the heck are you on about?

3.) 03 Nov 2019 09:21:20
Deulofeu's successful attempt to con the ref into awarding Watford a penalty yesterday, and VAR making a show of itself yet again.

4.) 03 Nov 2019 13:10:39
Ah ok, OP. Pls next time, lead with this, lol.



20 Aug 2019 14:52:03
So lads, just found out yesterday I'm going to be a dad. Any advice would be appreciated 😂.


1.) 20 Aug 2019 15:55:27

2.) 20 Aug 2019 16:06:09
Massive congrats mate.

3.) 20 Aug 2019 16:10:44
Yes, enjoy it! My boys are 19 and 21 although I have a daughter who is 12. The point being that the time by fast, in the blink of an eye. Before you know it they will be grown up.
don't expect to get everything right and there are no hard and fast rules on how to bring up kids. Spend plenty of time with them, watching their sport, school plays, holidays etc. You will regret it in the future if you don't and as they get older Pick you battles wisely.

That's it, well done to you and your other half. Enjoy it!

4.) 20 Aug 2019 17:05:09
Congratulations mate! My advice is to try not to get stressed out. Pretty much anything your kid does is normal, no matter how weird it seems to us. That, and enjoy every minute of it, as it's the greatest time of your life.

5.) 20 Aug 2019 17:32:06

Demand she gives you a boy. I tried to get my daughters into football and all things LFC. No joy.

They went into irish dancing instead.

Does this help.

6.) 20 Aug 2019 17:48:54
No amount of money can buy back lost time.
kids just want time and attention work can always wait your kid will grow every day and do something new every day try not to miss a thing
Also kids are like butterflys they all fly at thier own heights and each is beautiful in it's own way
They will be the best and most precious thing in your life.

{Ed001's Note - I think wiltshire needs to check and see if their milkman was Irish around the time of conception....}

7.) 20 Aug 2019 17:57:01
I can't complain as the youngest one went on to a national champion at the same time we had roy hodgson as manager.

It took my mind of the awful football.

Wait. milkman eamon o'flaherty. I wonder what he's doing now.

8.) 20 Aug 2019 18:01:39
Head for the hills and start using condoms. In all seriousness congrats just be there for your kid. Being a father means more than any material gift or money.

9.) 20 Aug 2019 18:26:49
My son is 3 in a few months. My only advice is don't take anything the Mrs says to heart for at least 2 years. The actual fatherhood side of it is the easy bit. It's the strain it puts on your relationship that requires more work. Make time for each other as well as doing things as a family. Oh and when the kid turns 2 it's all downhill from there because they become mobile and intelligent enough to do what they want, but have no ability to reason! It's like trying to get your drunken mate in the taxi at the end of a heavy night out. You know he can do it, he knows he can do it, but he also knows that he can put up enough of a fight to make your life hell!

10.) 20 Aug 2019 19:15:10
Congrats, OP. I have two boys myself, a 4 year old and a 13 month old. They are true gems. The only advice I have for you is to be very aware of everything you say or do around him cos HE WILL SEE EVERYTHING you do and say. I say this cos you as his father, will be the standard as to what type of man he will aspire to be at least at the start of your wonderful father-son relationship. Apart from that, you will have the time of your life as in, he will give you complete and utter hell, bro. Congrats, once again.

11.) 20 Aug 2019 19:28:08
Get plenty of sleep now.

12.) 20 Aug 2019 20:48:37
Yeah, pull out quicker next time 😂
Only messing, enjoy the early months, as soon as they learn to roll over your life is over.
Oh and it’s only a few short years before they learn to swear at you so enjoy the cute gurgling noises while they last as well haha.

{Ed025's Note - my advice would be to buy the kid an everton kit, when the new stadium is built and the progress we are making on the field comes to fruition the child will be eternally grateful to you RTID, liverpool supporters will be 2nd class citizens as he or she grows up and children who wear red will be at the mercy of the bullies...oh by the way...congratulations mate.. :)

13.) 20 Aug 2019 22:37:40
No amount of money ever bought a second of time. Don’t stress or take anything too seriously. As long as you spend as much time with them as you can you’ll be fine. At least till they become teenagers anyway then your screwed.

14.) 21 Aug 2019 00:15:27
Yeah, don’t let them push your missus into natural birth if labour starts taking too long. Caesarean is perfectly fine. And if I didn’t faint in the delivery room you should be fine.

15.) 21 Aug 2019 07:17:18
Haha cheers guys, genuinely stunned. My misses phoned me up at work and said she was pregnant, my response was this better not be one of your unfunny jokes, it wasn't 😂. I'll be fine as long as the kids into footy, otherwise I'm out of ideas.

16.) 21 Aug 2019 08:47:48
muslin squares get loads. you will uses them for everything.

17.) 21 Aug 2019 11:47:08
This post really touched me, a poster sends he is having a child and many respond back with sound advice and heart felt best wishes. if this is not a family, I don't know what is. Well done Triston you built something very special with these pages.

{Ed001's Note - sometimes it does leave you lost for words on this site. It is a good reminder that human decency is not dead and that good people are everywhere.}

18.) 21 Aug 2019 12:08:19
If the kid is in a cot/ bed in your bedroom, try to put it on the opposite side of yours. Re-arrange the room if you have to.

Sleep will be the real b**ch!

Otherwise the first six or so months is easy out. They are basically a pet. Don't need to do much. Just feed it, clean it and put it to sleep.

Try not to encourage crawling and walking. They will do it eventually but really you want to extend the non crawling for as much as possible as they become a danger to everybody including themselves. You will trip over it at some stage. Relax about this. Remember, it is their fault crawling along like silent ninjas.

As they get older TV will be a godsend. Remember never to remove it in a punishment. You're just punishing yourself if you do.

As they get older still, you've know realized you haven't been there for them and been half a$$ing parenting. It is important not to panic at this time. Just make another one and start again.

19.) 21 Aug 2019 12:32:58
just try and enjoy as much as you can. You and the mum work together as a team and figure out how you will share the night time feed/ change/ sleep routine etc. That will really help.

But also, just embrace everything. Like someone else said, before you know it they will be pushing you away and you will miss the days when they were so dependent on you!



15 Jul 2019 07:42:55
Ed1 if your about bud, hope your well? Given Brewster's form (albeit in friendlies) do you see Klopp changing formation to include both Rhian and Bobby in the starting line up? I imagine those two would play very well together. Cheers 👍.


{Ed001's Note - impossible to say, but Brewster is in the squad to play for the first team. May even be that Bobby has to win his place back yet.}

1.) 15 Jul 2019 12:44:07
Would be a great story if Brewster started in the super cup and got the winner.

2.) 15 Jul 2019 13:01:57
I like the link up pay that rhian is showing around the box. I feel like the next natural progression of our team is how we play through the opposition defence through 1-2s, smart angles etc. we have shown we can get around a team, now I am excited about watching go through the middle two and add another dimension to how we play.

3.) 15 Jul 2019 13:06:07
Interesting point of view, could be the competition Bobby needs to improve his goal ratio. Still, if it was my decision I'd drop one of the cm's for the games we know we'll have more possession and leave Bobby in the hole.

Imagine how much hastle he could cause if his role is to mainly link up play and cause problems with less emphasis on being in the box. Perhaps Klopp is thinking this hence the lack of movement for a new attacking mid. All speculation of course.

4.) 15 Jul 2019 19:38:18
Klopp and many others like myself, have high hopes for Brewster BUT we must not repeat what many did with Origi i. e putting too much pressure on him, wanting him to be Robbie Fowler overnight. He will need to play and learn the position of CF, the most difficult position to play as a youngster at the highest level.

Divvy almost got run outta town because of this lack of patience and thanks to his sheer will to prove people wrong, he stayed and well, he's a CL Legend now. Brewster will need lots of patience. Sancho is tearing it up at BVB for a reason. He is allowed to grow with no pressure on him. We should allow Brewster the same opportunity.



16 May 2019 12:32:02
Ed, read a couple reports saying PSG might be interested in Bobby. I'm sure he's perfectly happy where he is, but I was wondering if there was any truth in their interest?



{Ed002's Note - See previous answers please.}

1.) 16 May 2019 14:34:59
I’m interested in Scarlett Johansen but I’m not going to get her.

2.) 16 May 2019 16:05:43
She has said she has been single for almost 10 years now Southern Red. So you may have an easier shot than you think. 😉.

3.) 16 May 2019 16:44:20
Ah seen, many thanks.

4.) 16 May 2019 17:10:37
I have such hope every hour of the day, although she never responds to my carrier pigeons.

{Ed001's Note - I think your problem is that you have been sold false hope. Carrier pigeons (I believe) are extinct. So the ones you are sending out are obviously just ordinary pigeons and are not delivering your messages and that's why you have got no response. You will probably see some old dear throwing bread for them in the local park.}

5.) 16 May 2019 17:39:20
Johansen is famous for loving a good pigeon.

I think your messages ARE getting through, TSR, despite Ed001's scurrilous stirring, but unfortunately she eats them before she's had a chance to reply.

I wouldn't send an e-mail either as she's also partial to a byte.

Letter is best, just not rice paper, as that's her favourite accompaniment to sauteed pigeon.

She's also a fan of cat-toast.

You heard it here first.

6.) 16 May 2019 17:58:57
But maybe the old dear will go out with you mate!

7.) 17 May 2019 09:54:46
They are wasting their time. PSG are nothing but a running joke in France right now esp. after they were humiliated by Utd, embarrassed by Rennes in the French Cup and how they were humiliated again in the League Cup. Joke of a club and their manager is just as clueless.

Still not convinced we'll go back in for him. More and more clubs will show interest as the window drags on and Aulas has basically invited interest from all comers.

I doubt any of our centre backs will look to leave this summer, realistically its their best chance of a prem title, assuming we don't win it this year.

I think its madness to let him go, Who could we possibly get of Dannys calibre who is reasonably happy to play back up. I don't understand why we would stick by him through all of the injuries to release him when he's playing his best footy in years. Besides, 110k isn't that much compared to what most top prem strikers earn, I bet Girouds on similar money and i know who id rather have on the bench.

"How much did you have to drink last night? You're hanging! " was a personal favourite of his, accurate on occasion.
