I was reading James Milner's book 'Ask a Footballer' and he said one of the lads told him there was a manager who, the day after they'd lost a game, told them to line up in formation and left them standing there in their positions for 45 minutes.

He told them, 'That's what you did yesterday, so that's what we're doing today. ' He blew his whistle for half time, turned them around, and made them stand in one position for another 45 minutes.

My guess is that is was Brendan, with maybe Roy an outside chance. Anyone else got any ideas who it might be?

Haha dunno but that’s pretty funny.

2.) 17 Nov 2021 12:24:55
That's brilliant.

I heard a podcast on this it was Felix mcggath who was in charge at Fulham for a shirt period. Believe it was. Think it was Steve sitwell who was talking about it.

Doesn't surprise me, very eccentric.

5.) 17 Nov 2021 13:14:34
Yeah, Jason, I could see Souness doing that, but if Milner was told the story by one of the lads at the club, I don’t think any of the players at the club when Milner joined in 2015 were going back as far as the Souness era. That’s what made me think Brendan, at the time he was under real pressure, sacking Pascoe and probably opening his three envelopes too. I can’t see Kenny doing that, and it seems even a bit obscure for Roy.

6.) 17 Nov 2021 13:56:16
Thanks LFCSTE, I assumed it was a Liverpool manager, as Milner said one of the lads at Liverpool told him about it. I’m trying to think of an ex-Fulham player at Liverpool, assuming Harvey Elliot is too young to have been involved in that.

Sounds like a 1970s school teacher. Only missing the corporal punishment bit.

That is freaking hilarious 🤣🤣🤣. It’s something I see Paisley doing.

It was Klopp. Prepping for another draw on Saturday 😂.

11.) 18 Nov 2021 16:01:13
I can’t think of anything less Paisley-like to be honest.
What a childish waste of 90 minutes.

12.) 18 Nov 2021 19:27:00
Exactly The Juicer. Milner said player’s muscles were seizing up and everything.



02 Jun 2018 13:25:58
The definite additions of Keita and Fabinho will strengthen an area of the team that was found lacking at the very top level last season (if the pressing doesn’t put us in any surmountable position before they tire) . I expect our midfield options next season to be Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wijnaldum. I think Lallana will leave and maybe also Milner once he has had a chat with Klopp about his plans for him.

I think the defence that played in the final will be adequate, especially with better protection from midfield that Fabinho should provide I would like better than Matip as cover but, with Gomez and Klavan, I can live with that.

The front 3 are the front 3 and need no explanation. However, the backup is poor. I think Ings May leave and Solanke is not or may never be good enough (that’s up to him to prove) . We will sign at least one other player that can play up front or in midfield. That may or not never Fekir. If so, great. If not, we may be surprised by whoever they come up with as the alternative.

That leaves the critical position of goalkeeper. None of those currently at the club are good enough to take us where we want to be. This is the signing where we need to push the boat out to ensure class and stability for the next 5 - 10 years. We don’t want to be discussing this situation every summer, or changing keepers mid-season or rotating keepers. Bite the bullet and get it sorted now. It will pay for itself over and over again.

So, although I would like more, I would be very happy with just 2 more; a versatile player to cover the midfield / front positions and a CLASS goalkeeper.

If you do disagree with my post, please don’t let it be to give Karius a chance. He has had enough chances and is simply not good enough.


1.) 02 Jun 2018 14:28:00
Agree. He's had his chances and blew them all. I'd be looking at the best Available Oblak or Allison.

2.) 02 Jun 2018 14:18:06
Fekir, Allison and Dembele / Winger would win us the league. Now it’s up to the club what they aim for next season, CL places or Title.

{Ed002's Note - Even if Salah went to Manchester United instead of Real Madrid?}

3.) 02 Jun 2018 15:02:14
OP, First off I am not here to say Karius should be given another chance or not cos that is up to Klopp alone and no one else. Now, this talking point that "Karius has had many chances" is simply incorrect and patently false. You must be confusing him w/ Migs cos if anyone has had "many" chances, it is Migs. The guy made more mistakes in the first 5 games than Karius made all season.

Karius has been here for two seasons and only got a full run in the team with 15 PL games left and tho he has been average in some games, he has been very good in others (10 clean sheets in 22 games overall) and like it or not, he led the CL in clean sheets. I know some will say "It was cos of VVD". Again, patently false. DDG won the award for the most clean sheets in the PL. Does he play by himself? So if DDG is getting the credit for the clean sheets then Karius should get it for his record in the CL. The same rules MUST apply to everyone and had Karius not made those mistakes in the CL final, the general consensus was that he had earned the job for next season even tho his flaws still needed to be ironed out. Pls, let us stop this falsehood that "Karius has had many chances". He has not and if anyone has, it is Migs who has been killing us for FIVE years until Klopp pulled the plug.

4.) 02 Jun 2018 15:23:08
BRover you are right Karius does deserve credit for the clean sheets as do all the back 4. However Karius also then deserves the criticism of throwing the ball onto Benzema's foot and the inability to catch a shot straight at him against Real and the one he got away with against Roma.

5.) 02 Jun 2018 15:33:56
Oh my Ed02, was that a hint that UTD are interested in Salah 😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳. You are teasing us 😂😂.

6.) 02 Jun 2018 16:02:00
BRover, do you like watching a team that doesn’t win anything? That’s what we’ll all be doing if you get your deathwish to keep faith in Karius.

Anyone can get a clean sheet in a game where you don’t have to do anything. Goalkeepers warm their reputation by making vital saves in games where they are called upon.

Stop feeling sorry for Karius, he’s history. Klopp is not that stupid to hang his reputation on an error prone goalkeeper. He thought he might have been able to make something of him by playing him but all it achieved was more mistakes

If you want to bet me £20 to charity, I say that Karius will not start the season as number 1. If he does, I pay, if he doesn’t, you pay. I’ll give you a little warning in that I had a similar bet last season with one of the Eds, saying that Mignolet would start as number 1. I can’t remember which Ed it was, so don’t know if he donated or not.

7.) 02 Jun 2018 16:11:03
BRover whilst I respect your post and there is some logic in what your saying, I think stats like this require you to watch what is happening as well. Karius in a lot of those games had absolutely nothing to do. How many top class saves do you remember him actually making? I can remember 2 or 3 from the top of my head in the run he had last season which is well more than 15 games in all competitions so let’s not try to act as if he hasn’t had enough games. He made similar mistakes last season and Mignolet was getting shunned during his second season here if not before, Karius should be treated no different. Both seriously error prone goalkeepers, and these aren’t soft errors that anyone can make these are complete blunders that cost us points/ titles.

Personally I believe Karius should be kept but we need a goalkeeper fit to challenge and take the number 1 spot off him. That way Karius can really prove himself as the bar is set much higher than Mignolet. He either proves himself and reclaims number 1 spot which wouldn’t show incredible mental strength after what’s happened, or he leaves and goes to the level we all think he’s at. It’s up to him, but this risk taking with keepers has to stop if we want to achieve the top honours. We finally have a defence and potentially a midfield than can keep up with our attack, now fit the final piece of the puzzle and maybe we’ll win something finally.



29 May 2018 10:22:35
Just watched some clips of Fabinho and, while clips are not a reliable barometer of a player’s ability, the thing that stood out in all of them is that he always won the ball cleanly and his first instinct was to look forward and pick out a runner.

If he can do that for us he will be immense as we have some of the best runners in world football. Keita seems to be a player who is good at carrying the ball and can drive forward so should complement him very well.

FSG, please go out and get Fekir and our dream is complete.

Ps/ I strongly fancy us for one of the domestic cups next season as we will be able to rotate without seriously weakening the team.


1.) 29 May 2018 10:34:42
If we get Fekir then we are winning the league.

2.) 29 May 2018 10:58:43
If we want to win the league I still think we’d need another pacey winger and a world class goalie. So a summer of Keita, Fabinho, Fekir, Alisson and Malcolm/ Pulisic then I think we can we the title. Maybe a cb too but that could come in January maybe. We will see. Either way things are looking very positive for next season!

3.) 29 May 2018 11:16:53
Fekir, Alisson and another winger definitely needed to go toe to toe with Man city especially with AOC unlikely to feature much next season. Dembele on loan would be the cheapest option but makes sense until Wilson is ready to play in our first team.

4.) 29 May 2018 11:21:17
If we get Fekir and a GOOD keeper then we will CHALLENGE for the league!

5.) 29 May 2018 11:57:02
I dun think we are getting a pacy winger . It will be Wilson or Woodburn.

6.) 29 May 2018 13:13:17
Buzzer - you're exaggerating slightly, he should be back with us by November ish so by the time he's properly match fit andsharp again we should still get half a season out of him.

7.) 29 May 2018 13:23:43
Harry my dear friend I wish that was true but if city get their targets they will be winning the league and will get more than the 100 points achieved this season.
Let's hope they don't get their targets. If we get fekir and a quality keeper I see it finishing City, arsenal liverpool Chelsea man u spurs.



27 May 2018 13:32:28
The morning after and time to reflect. We lost a football game, albeit a massive one, but we lost a football game. We weren’t hammered but were beaten by a goal that happens once in every blue moon and 2 avoidable mistakes, after our most important player was targeted and deliberately taken out.

I can’t believe idiots wanting Klopp out. He is the only manager for us and is gradually getting us to where he wants to be. Who do you want to replace him - Sam Allardyce? It’s also unfair to talk about his record in Cup Finals. It wasn’t as if he was expected to win all of them. His teams were just not quite good enough. Incidentally, we have lost 3 out if the last 4 European Cup / Champions League finals. Are they all Klopps fault?

People are free to comment on Karius’s ability but are out of order is they abuse or t threaten him or his family. Anyone who does that is not wanted as part of the LFC family. If Karius is moved on it will be because he is the same as any other players who are moved on, because they are not good enough or have replaced them with better.

Opinions differ but Klopps is the only way that matters. For example, many say we need a new centre back to replace Lovren but I thought he was immense last night. The same people blindly support Karius who makes a lot more mistakes than Lovren.

I trust Klopp to bring in the players that will improve us and most of them should be in midfield who can also play further up if one if the front 3 are unavailable. We need to bring in midfield players who can do mire than just press, as when we play top quality teams they always dominate possession over us. When that happens the front 3 are starved of service. The press might give us a good 20 - 30 minutes where we can sometimes kill off the game but we will tire and le and back onto the game. Imagine Salah, Firmino and Mane being serviced by more creative midfielders such as Modric, iniesta and Erickson ( not saying they are the players we need to go for - just examples.

If you don’t like losing, don’t follow football as every team in the world will lose football games. The great Liverpool team in the 80’s didn’t lose all that many games, but when they did, they lost with dignity and spo sportsmanship. That’s what we need to do.




26 May 2018 07:19:58
Although it will be very nerve wracking tonight we should do our best to enjoy it and hope that the boys perform as we know they can and don’t let the occasion get to them.

Remember the years before Champions League when finishing 2nd wasn’t enough to get you in it the following year. Remember the seasons since Champions League when we didn’t finish on the top 4 and missed out. Remember the years when we didn’t get out of the group stages and remember the years when we were out early in the knock out stages.

Remembering all that, look where we are now - in the FINAL of the Champions League. There are hundreds of teams throughout Europe, many of them big names, who would love to be where we are tonight. Many of them would gladly grind out boring results for the privilege of being there. We have earned the right to be there, playing scintillating football. We are well capable of playing that football again tonight and bringing the trophy home.

But football is football and anything can happen. I think we are ahead of our development plan and, although it would be fantastic to win it, let’s continue to look forward if the worst happens. If that is the result of an individual mistake, let’s support that player and continue to support that player and move forward. The best us yet to come.

We have come a long way in a few years from the days of not being in The Europa League to the pinnacle of European football. Do your best to enjoy it and let’s hope we are celebrating around 10pm tonight.

YNWA Allez Allez Allez.

Very true Hugh Mungus. I remember how I felt after that game and where we are now seemed light years away. Win or lose, recruitment in the summer is crucial if we are to continue our journey. Too many times poor recruitment has thwarted our progress. However, I think Klopp is the perfect man who can build on the progress, judging by his record in the transfer market since he came. He is actually doing what many have said we needed: ie quality over quantity.

Jones hasn’t progressed and has fallen behind younger players. I reckon a loan move would do him good and give him a chance to fulfil the potential he had.

United have released Serge Romero. A no- brainer for me to bring him in as Ali’s no 2. Class keeper, never moans if out of the team and light years ahead of Adrian. Loan Kelleher out for experience.

I don’t condone the violence, and neither did Carragher or Neville by the way, but the alternative is to let these leeches continue to rip the body and soul out of OUR game in their insatiable greed for money. Unfortunately, they laugh off peaceful protest and it doesn’t bother them one bit. The only thing that makes them sit up and take notice is when it hits them financially.

I was looking forward to the game as much as anyone but accept that some things are necessary in order to effect change. History has shown that. Football is not alone in the abuse of money and power against the masses. Similar action needs to be taken against this Tory government who, apart from the fiscal corruption, also have blood on their hands.

Rearranging the game 2 days before the Europa Cup final would be useful too.

Mount scores and creates more than any of our current midfield and has the numbers that Jones can only dream about. I have not included Thiago in this assertion as he’s not played on the Prem enough to judge.
