Romano just report Fabio Carvalho as done deal

Is this true?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool were negotiating compensation with Fulham with a third party involved - I assume that they have now agreed.}

1.) 07 Apr 2022 16:33:59
Whao. We now have 3 young players in that position - Jones, Elliot, Carvalho.

Seems like Ox will be gone.

2.) 07 Apr 2022 16:40:32
5 year deal, medical done with Fulhams permission, no loan back and announcement in May supposedly.

3.) 07 Apr 2022 15:40:06
Will he come to us eds or do you see him being loaned back? Thanks.

4.) 07 Apr 2022 18:37:04
According to Yahoo it's a done deal at £5 million and he won't be going back on loan.
Ox could well be gone, Klopp said in an interview recently there would probably be players moving on in the summer to get more playing time.

5.) 07 Apr 2022 19:43:17
As indicated quite some time ago. He will come to us. £7.7m agreed including add-ons.

6.) 08 Apr 2022 09:33:24
What do you think Ox is worth. Perhaps £20million?

7.) 08 Apr 2022 13:57:05
We'd be lucky to get £10m.

8.) 09 Apr 2022 13:33:11
Yeah, I think it will be around £10m for Ox, might struggle to get rid with his wages being so high.

9.) 11 Apr 2022 21:51:49
Hi ed. is gleison bremer also on our shortlist player to add for the next season? Appreciate for your thoughts. Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Gleison Bremer (CB) Carlo Ancelotti tried to take him to Napoli and also Everton. He could try again as an affordable option for Real Madrid. Spurs and Milan provide good options as Spurs look to upgrade on the CBs they have and Milan fear losing Alessio Romagnoli as a Free Agent. Again, he is of interest to Inter Milan who fear losing Alessandro Bastoni in the summer of 2022 and they offer perhaps the most attractive solutution. Previously of interest to Leicester and Liverpool, but both opted for others. Juventus have him on a list of options should they lose de LIgt in the summer but there are certainly a couple ahead of him. Chelsea have a pressing need to add CBs with players out of contract in the summer and could look to him as a cost-effective solution. Torino will look to a new contract to end thoughts of a move but that has not stopped clubs scouting him as they expect him to be available in the summer as he has so far refused a new contract. Bayern Munich have held discussions with Torino.

A CB is not a priority for Liverpool.}

while we are at it for transfers, can anyone update when will we sign any of the following players?

- Pablo Aimar
- Simão Sabrosa
- Dani Alves
- David Villa
- Joaquín Sánchez

Also, any others that we have been waiting for the transfer finally be completed after the long wait?

{Ed0666's Note - I think Simao is still on the plane ready to take off no?

1.) 01 Jun 2021 16:14:49
sadly that seems to be as far as he got
was it issues with the plane, pilot, airport or stewardess?
or that he had issues with flying?

i really think travel restrictions shouldn't be used as an excuse given how long we've waited for him.

{Ed0666's Note - don’t worry he’ll sign the pilots just a bit late. Maybe he should have used the babbel-copter!

2.) 01 Jun 2021 16:52:17
I think the Pablo Aimar rumour goes far back. It was around in the days of 'football rumours'!

{Ed0666's Note - around the days of Jurrasic Park mote like

3.) 01 Jun 2021 17:02:08
I believe a horse and carriage are being lined up to bring Fatty Foulkes from Bradford as Alisson's understudy.

His spiritual successor - Big Nev - is also being lined up for the No 3 slot, but he will only have to take a ferry across the Mersey.

4.) 01 Jun 2021 17:07:20
What about Arda Turan?

5.) 01 Jun 2021 17:31:14
Pablo Aimar, well that’s a blast from the past. Remember him being a wonder kid on Championship Manager. How time flies hey!

6.) 01 Jun 2021 18:28:38
Gareth Barry I've heard, although got a feeling it won't happen!

7.) 01 Jun 2021 18:30:37
Whaddabout the Konoplyankakopter?

8.) 01 Jun 2021 18:32:28
I'm still waiting for Ken Augero to sigh! 😃.

9.) 01 Jun 2021 19:26:49
And Quaresma.

10.) 01 Jun 2021 19:59:51
Aimar would have been brilliant for us.

11.) 04 Jun 2021 02:48:24
Don't forget Ayala from Valencia.



05 Jan 2019 23:21:53
hi Ed002, if you are about, do you see Lallana moving on in this window as well? its no secret that he wants to move and he hasn't had much game time this past 1.5 years.

Likewise for Markovic, Ejaria, and Pedro who all seemed surplus to requirements and are unlikely to even be on the bench.

Or would the summer be a more likely time for these 4 players to move on.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Lallana saying he wants to move - his lack of game time is down to injury. As such moving this window would be vey unlikely I would think. Markovic should be released from his contract. Liverpool has no use for Ejaria either and will look to loan him out again initially I would think.}

1.) 06 Jan 2019 07:43:27
Thanks for the response. Much appreciated.



01 Jan 2019 00:19:33
it's 2019! and the transfer window has opened! not expecting much to happen but i perceive some things may need to be done pending on outgoings. Nonetheless, here are some thoughts (for the next 2 windows) . Please feel free to share your thoughts!

Probable outs: Mignolet, Bogdan, Karius (on loan)
Preference: Would hope that we can secure a solid no.2 that can feature in the cup games and deputise ably when needed. but are there keepers of decent quality that is willing and available to do that?

Not expecting much to change and am happy to keep things as it is.

Probable outs: Clyne, Randall
Preference: In my dream world, Wan-Bissaka. If we can secure him, TAA, Gomez, Fab can cover and I think we'll be quite strong in this area. The down side is TAA would have lesser game time as i think Wan-Bissaka is the better fullback and he'll (TAA) have to wait for his chance in middle of the park.

Probable outs: Moreno
Preference: Some names that have been thrown around include Laxalt, Tierney, Chilwell. Personally don't know any good LBs but if we are spending, would prefer someone that can challenge Robertson for a starting spot, otherwise the youth prospects can be given a chance? Would really hope to see Roberston given a rest when possible as he really looks knackered in the last game.

Probable outs: Lallana, Milner (if Leeds gets promoted and it appears ever more likely), Pedro, Ejaria, Grujic
Preference: For TAA to be in contention to feature in this position. Rabiot's name has been thrown around and while he's quality, he seems to have fair bit of baggage with him? Would think we need at least one addition in the summer. Not too sure if Allan could return, get a permit and is deemed as suitable for the team (he hasn't featured much this season while on loan though)?

Probable outs: Sturridge, Origi, Ings (complete transfer), Ojo
Preference: Will Kent and Wilson have a shot next year? I hope at least Wilson will get a chance. Would hope to add one or two players who can play in any position in the front 3 as cover but who is able, available and willing?

Summary of anticipated key deals:
1) LB
2) RB
3) CM
4) GK
5) Forward.

1.) 01 Jan 2019 01:10:08
I see Moreno staying until the end of the season will be interesting though to see if anyone tries to snap him up on a free in January, I expect he will play against Wolves in the FA Cup. I doubt we will have many banging on our door for Mignolet come January or in the summer so I expect him to be backup for next year. I am not sure about Milner moving on, even back to Leeds if they get promoted, I suspect him to be another one to still be here next season unless Klopp wants otherwise. I suspect maybe 2 or 3 new signings next summer at most. As for January maybe one.

2.) 01 Jan 2019 02:52:58
I think that’s a pretty good summary, but none are urgent and most are about leavers and backups, so likely to wait for the summer. As Ed02 mentioned (and I agree here) there’s really no need to disrupt the dressing room much in Jan unless something special comes along we can’t ignore.

Of all the positions in the summer, I think a backup GK, a backup LB and a backup striker are most crucial (assuming Migs, Moreno and Sturridge leave) and need to see senior players coming in as we don’t have obvious subs in any of those positions. After that, i think we can probably cover fine with Ox coming back into Midfield and Fabinho able to play RB, so I would like us to just give the kids a chance to step up in place of Lallana, Clyne etc. as they’re only likely to get game time in an injury crisis. eg we can give opportunities to Wilson, Herbie Kane, Brewster, Camacho, Adam Lewis.

3.) 01 Jan 2019 09:22:49
I’d say this window most likely to leave for me would be Clyne and/ or Origi. But would say we will probably sell

Moreno, Lallana, Sturridge, and maybe Milner in summer.

In terms of youngsters I think Kent, Ejaria, Ojo, Randall and possibly Solanke will all leave this summer.

4.) 01 Jan 2019 09:36:17
Excellent summary mate I'm definetly with you on Wan-Bissaka what a singing he would be. I agree Trent's game time would go down but I believe Klopp would rotate them well and start giving Trent chances in midfield in cup games etc and there would be no need to play Gomez at RB again let him focus solely on improving as a CB. I think its more realistic this happens next year though when a midfielder likely leaves (probably Wijnaldum) and Trent will be guaranteed more game time and Wan-Bissaka is more experienced.

GK I would ideally say Butland as he's English and would be decent back up but honestly don't mind who we get.

On CB reluctantly I would say leave it as is at the moment even though I am not Lovren and Matips biggest fans and 3/ 4 injury prone centre backs is not great its worked so far. Ed002 has mentioned we are looking at young CBs that's probably the ideal signing in that position to cover and an eye on the future as well.

At LB I think Adam Lewis has to be promoted I don't see the point in spending money on a replacement at all unless we don't sign a RB then we'd go for a more experienced LB and send Lewis on loan.

For Midfield if Lallana and Milner leave like everyone expects than I think Fabinho/ Henderson/ Keita/ Wijnaldum/ Ox are great options for the 3 spots. What I'm trying to predict is whether Bobby will start playing more permenantly behind the striker, where Fekir would've played if he signed, in that case I wouldn't sign another midfielder but get a lethal striker. If Bobby is moved back up front then I would get someone in like Fekir. What is confusing me is that I think Ed001 stated Shaqiri was a Fekir alternantive so I'm not sure if we sign a 10 or a striker but the big money will be spent on of those I believe.

The forward area I think we need to put faith in Brewster now have him as the backup ST on the bench once Sturridge, Origi, Ings and probably Solanke leave. We will either have Bobby or a new signing as first choice No.9 and probably Salah as second choice then Brewster to begin with. I'd expext Ojo and Kent to leave permenantly or on loan and Wilson/ Woodburn on another loan with good game time.

I think this a very good potential squad next season.

Alisson, BUTLAND, Grabara


Virgil, Gomez, Lovren, Matip, YOUNG CB

Robertson, Lewis

Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Wijnaldum, NEW 10, Ox

Salah, Mane, Shaqiri, Camacho

Bobby, Brewster, Duncan

What does everyone think about this squad and whether we go for a new number 10 or a striker? I really think that's the big singing we will make.

5.) 01 Jan 2019 09:36:31
For the Goalkeeping situation I'd look at Burnley at either Pope (less likely due to his break out season last year) or Heaton the older of the two 31 I think. But he has premier-league experience and he maybe even 3rd choice at Burnley. Either of the two and I'd be happy. Mignolet may get a hard time from the fans but he is a better goalkeeper than some give him credit for and he will go to a decent team when he leaves. I personally thought at Sunderland he had a better season than Pickford when both were signed.

6.) 01 Jan 2019 11:14:32
In. Wan bissaka, de ligt, rabiot and fekir.

Out . Mig, Matip, Moreno, clyne, Milner (let him go on a free if Leeds come up), lallana, sturridge, solanke.

I've no worries anymore about our club.

We are now 4? Transfer windows into klopp and every single one has been pretty much on point.

Don't think klopp will ever sign more than 4 players.

The club don't seem to be cutting corners either on there top targets.

I think letting de ligt and wan bissaka go anywhere else when we are at the top of our game would be I'll advised.

De ligt and vvd for starters and then we ligt and Gomez. for what 12 years?

Wan bissaka is going to be the best rb in the league. Trent can take over Milner in the middle.

Fekir is a beast and rabiot is a great cm.

Always strengthen when you are the top.

7.) 01 Jan 2019 13:17:28

Migs, Moreno, Clyne, Milner, Lallana, Sturridge.


Butland, Bissaka, Coutinho.

Promote Lewis, H. Wilson and Brewster.

8.) 01 Jan 2019 13:25:32
There is talk of lloyd kelly left back from Bristol city, could b another Gomez lower division quality.

9.) 01 Jan 2019 14:01:07
Kelly looks like a left sided Gomez. Tall strong fast and a good tackler. Would Ward even come back do you think any of the Ed's? Surely being on the bench back at Liverpool is better than being on the bench at Leicester. I know he left because of the talk of Kasper leaving but that never came off. Or would you expect him to push for a move away from the King Power in search of a regular spot somewhere else?

{Ed001's Note - he is hoping to get regular first team football somewhere.}

10.) 01 Jan 2019 14:30:43
I know we probably have never considered him at any point. But a player I feel would fit well up too would be Jamie Vardey. Even though he’s pushing on in age his pace is still very good along with his finishing. He could play anywhere along the top and offer great cover for the front 3. Surely at his age he may not cost too much and would be far better off the bench than Solanke, Origi, Sturridge.
But I feel cover for full backs is our priority especially left back. Moreno can’t defend and the fact that Milner would often be the second choice left back says it all. We have plenty of cover at centre back and in the middle of the park. But let’s trust Klopp many of his signings have been underwhelming, yet turned out to be very good and very popular. Robertson, Ox, Shaqiri, Wijnaldum.

11.) 01 Jan 2019 18:12:55
I agree Ibiza red he would be brilliant for us, he has that pesky nuisance style that would be boss in our pressing style.

12.) 01 Jan 2019 21:17:35
My argument is that many people want us to buy players that could be £50 million plus and I don’t see that happening. Not that I see us going for Vardey or Leicester selling him to us but I think he would be relatively cheap, may be happier to sit on the bench than many players people want us to sign, he’s english, and I genuinely think he’s a good player and would work in our system.
I think our midfield is fine until the summer, and our defence unless we ship out Moreno then we could do with cover for Robertson.
But in general I don’t feel we need to do anything to this squad until the summer.

13.) 01 Jan 2019 23:58:48
Agree with some of the comments. I actually anticipate about 10 - 15 players leaving this summer (Migs, Clyne, Moreno, Lallana, Markovic, Kent, Ojo, Randall, Solanke, Sturridge, Pedro, etc. ) and am hoping some of the promising youngsters can fill these spots.

I'm unsure if Butland would want to come and sit on the bench at 25, thought Heaton seems possible but am unsure if we have any interest. I will be surprised if Nick Pope doesn't replace Joe Hart if they are still in the PL next year. He is way better than JH.

With the kind of football we play, I actually think we need 7 - 8 CMs to last the distance. Last season we had 6 senior CMs and towards the end, we were short on bodies and fitness.

While I'm all for youth, I think its quite a big risk to rely on Brewster and Duncan only as back-ups for striker / centre forward.

As Ed001 regularly laments, if the window is open for 3/ 4 of the seasons, I would have no issue letting the youngsters have a few months to try out. But if they bottle their chance or is shown to be not ready and we have to go 5-6 months with them, that's a very scary thought for any manager.

Keep the comments coming. Be glad to hear from various ones, even if our opinions differ.

14.) 02 Jan 2019 09:59:50
Personally think we don't need to mess around with squad harmony that much.

Get rid of mings leave Karius out on loan (recall option impcase of emergency) and let the young lads progress.

Full back.
Keep Clynn and start positional training for left back having him in the squad and rotating will be brilliant.

If no on leaves then we don't need to look we have 4 good CB's that most teams would be happy with.

No change unless there is a creative player out there available.

Look at Jaden Sancho not sure Dortmund will let him go cheap though.

If Sturridge and origi are off we should look at Bellotti strong lad has a good instinct for goal decent in the air personally feel he will be a brilliant signing.

We need to be realistic we all want Mbeppe and players of that caliber but do we need loads of big egos all coming in no.

15.) 02 Jan 2019 21:05:06
Ideally a better senior back up keeper, a 2nd LB to challenge Robbie, and a forward who can play up top or out wide, so we can rotate the front 3 with no loss of quality.

16.) 03 Jan 2019 02:21:32
Migs Will leave so we should get a back up keeper I suppose getting Butland will be viable and we were interested in him last summer.
If Clynes and Milner leave we could get Wan Bissaka and start playing A. Arnold more in Middlefield.
If Moreno leaves we can promote A. Lewis as back up for Robertson.
It seems Lallana is leaving so we need a player who can play forward and Middlefield so who can be better than Coutinho who is available.
H. Wilson deserve a chance to be part of the next season.
If Sturridge leaves we still have Origi, Solanke and Brewster but at least one should leave on loan.

Then the team will be like this (4-2-3-1):

Alisson/ Butland
Bissaka/ A. Arnold
Robertson/ A. Lewis
VanDijk/ Matip
Lovren/ Gomez
Henderson/ Fabinho
Keita/ Wijnaldum
Mane/ H. Wilson
Firmino/ Shaqiri
Coutinho/ Chamberlain
Salah/ Origi/ Solanke/ Brewster.

Just some thoughts on pitch invasion
It really must be dealt with now
Some will say it's only taunting it minor altercation, but let it brew and you could be seeing some serious damage real soon

I think some things being done now is fining the club? I think it's not enough. Yes the club is responsible for security but a small fine is a slap on the wrist.

Bans for the fans that caused mayhem? I think there's only that handful and if the person was caught on camera, they'll get away with it.

More importantly, we shouldn't just punish those that harassed players or did real harm, as the primary issue is pitch invasion. So I think we must hit where it hurts - outcome of football matches.

If it happens during a once off game or play of, the team that failed to control their fans will automatically lose the game 3-0. If it's a league game, the team will experience an automatic 10 point deduction, barred from winning the title or European appearances. It's a high price to pay such that both clubs and fans has an incentive to do right - the club to manage security and educate fans to behave, the fans to actually behave or their championship win / relegation survival / European qualification will b made null regardless of match outcomes.

Of course I'm not seeking retrospective actions for what happened this season (I'm not that pitiful to want us to win the league via a back door), rather, we really need to sort this out now before someone gets really hurt.

Would love to hear from the rest.

1.) 24 May 2022 07:09:54
Clubs have responsibilities but so does the individual. I would introduce fines, removal of season tickets and banning to people identified invading the pitch. it’s impossible to fine all in a mass invasion, but if they face the possibility of an arbitrary ban etc then it will act as a deterrent. If people choose to ignore then they run the risk of following the club they love.

Use mobile phone footage, social media and cctv to catch. It will soon stop. People have to be held accountable for their actions and will think twice.

2.) 24 May 2022 07:17:52
That can't be policed properly. Just say you dock points, what's stopping a few liverpool supporters going to man City running on the field and hitting one of their players. Or vica versa their supporters doing the same. You all remember the idiot who threw the bottle at the man City bus and we were up in arms over it, who did he support.

3.) 24 May 2022 07:38:57
No fans inside the ground for 2 games chosen by the FA be it a home game or away game and bring in the Police mob handed toward the end of the game in full riot gear works in Italy.

4.) 24 May 2022 08:15:24
There is already an issue of police shortages in this country, so we can't expect every game to have a riot squad on stand by. I don't belive point deductions will work either as like mentioned, will likely just encourage fans from other teams. The Individual punishment needs to be more severe, yes ban them, but also add hefty fines to the individual as well.

5.) 24 May 2022 09:10:13
An off duty police officer ran onto the pitch at City, didn't he?
You don't need to celebrate on the pitch or by breaking goalposts.
If you're 'celebrating' on the pitch, you're spoiling it for the others sat or stood where they should be and it isn't fair to the players.
It's selfish.

6.) 24 May 2022 09:24:18
The FA should introduce a zero tolerance policy and an instant 5 point deduction to teams who cannot control there fans from running onto the pitch - maybe the fans will think twice about doing it then.

7.) 24 May 2022 10:20:26
A two point deduction is enough. Starting last Sunday!

8.) 24 May 2022 10:34:32
I was also thinking about the bottom of the table and the consequences that would of caused, when Patrick Viera was assaulted.

If there was a zero tolerance and a 5 point deduction - then the consequences are literally in the hands of the fans, so you would like to think they may think twice about doing it.

9.) 24 May 2022 13:04:32
It will be hard to judge whose fans actually committed the offence no?
As @ Deisered above has mention.
By Jersey, by id? It wouldn't be 100%.

10.) 24 May 2022 15:32:37
When thinking of "pitch invasion", for some reason, my mind went immediately to the time Klopp ran over all the way to Alisson in that Everton game, LOL. He was lucky to escape sanction (or I'm not aware of what was said or done to him by the FA) .



22 May 2022 14:47:56
Has there been a season like this? Where there is all to play for
- the title
- final CL spot
- decide who's in Europa, who's in Europa conference
- final relegation spot
- golden boot
- golden glove

It's like everything that can be up for grabs is.
Let's enjoy the final 90mins and hope that the ribbons will be red today.

1.) 22 May 2022 18:16:01
Yes - season city won league with augero and 88 when Thomas won league for Arsrnak.



19 May 2022 12:50:07
Look at the difference in quality of commentary:

Minamino's goal ⚽️
Tyler: 🗣 'Oh, it's 1-1'
Drury: 🗣 'On a night of obligation, out of the shadows has stepped Takumi Minamino to score a big one for Klopp and the Kop'

Matip's goal ⚽️
Tyler: 🗣 'They're checking whether the ball went out from the corner. What a strange goal'
Drury: 🗣 'And Liverpool lead! Joel Matip has Liverpool where they need to be! '

The difference between Tyler and Drury during Southampton vs Liverpool is staggering.

1.) 19 May 2022 13:04:09
In point of view we get to see how disturbing it is to a united fan everytime we score lol.

2.) 19 May 2022 13:39:00
Martin Tyler sounds like he's about to fall asleep at every game and he's trying his best to get you to do so too. Absolutely dreadful that he's on the mic for every big game.

3.) 19 May 2022 13:49:46
The Minamino goal was a new level of dispassionate loathing from him. The same bloke lost his mind when we beat City in the league 4-3 a few years back (YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT! etc. ) . Although maybe cos it was we were stopping City from going unbeaten at the time.

Is he just gone too ould for it?

Watching Mark Goldbridge support Man City cos he hates us so much is funnier anyway.

4.) 19 May 2022 14:19:03
On the Tyler thing, I don't even think it's because he hates us (I know he does) but every dog has its day and he can make the most compelling game feel drab and boring. His enthusiasm seems to have all but disappeared and even his 'AND ITS LIVE' feels forced and insincere.

He needs replacing, if that is Peter Drury, then perfect but even an Ally McCoist with someone. either way we need new commentators on SkySports because Martin Tyler is a dementor to great games/ goals.

5.) 19 May 2022 15:06:26
To be honest I couldn't tell you who is commentating any of our games. Its not something I think about or listen to intently. For me its just noise in the background while I focus on the game.

6.) 19 May 2022 16:05:50
TIR the same mate. I don’t think I’ve ever stopped and listened to what someone is saying especially if we’ve just scored.

Agree though that Drury collaborates it brilliantly when listening back.

7.) 19 May 2022 16:53:40
JK23, you don't need to stop and listen. It is right there and the OP didn't even need to describe it as well as he did. The first time I knew about Tyler's conduct whenever LFC scored was a couple of years ago where he commentated on the Barcelona game at Anfield in the CL. For each goal we scored while Darren Fletcher was losing his mind on BT Sport, Tyler sounded like his heart had sunk or he just heard some tragic news, it was that underwhelming and blatant.

That is when I started noticing it and it is getting worse. Look at the pen shoot out on Sat. The guy (along with Stuart Robson) was literally willing Jota to miss before he scored. Also, when Mendy saved from Mane, his voice decibels went thru the roof. But when Alli saved from Mount, the guy sounded like he needed a nap. I don't know if he hates LFC BUT I can tell he really struggles describe the great moments whenever we have in a game.

8.) 19 May 2022 17:13:00
He's just miserable. Whether that misery is due to bias or not, I don't really care. He's just miserable and I'd rather turn the sound off.

Oli when I said stop and listen. I meant stop celebrating to listen. As I’m normally bouncing around the house or pub screaming so my volume outweighs the commentary anyway.

10.) 19 May 2022 18:02:00
Did Tyler commentate on our semi versus Barcelona?

11.) 19 May 2022 18:50:06
No as that was on BT I think.

12.) 19 May 2022 19:13:55
I didn't think so, kimuraking.
I've seen the game a dozen times and I don't remember Tyler commentating.

13.) 19 May 2022 20:54:50
I’d rather listen to Alan Partridge commentate that Martin Tyler.

14.) 19 May 2022 22:42:06
Martin Tyler has been dreadful for years he’s boring and drones on. I hear him breathing down the mic far too often too.

15.) 20 May 2022 07:09:04
Based purely on comments on here I’ve listened carefully to his commentary over last few matches and I have to say I think it’s nonsense about him being anti Liverpool.

He’s balanced (more so when Carragher is co commentator than Neville to be fair) and says many positive things about Liverpool - however he is pretty dull.

The biggest shame for me is Jonathan Pearce. He was a legend when first started but he was told to tow the line when he got BBC matches and he’s just a shadow of his former self.

Best co commentator by miles is Andy Townsend and have been saying that for years. Macca is possibly the worst (though Hinchcliffe is close second) - just repeats everything the main commentator says and offers no insight at all.

16.) 20 May 2022 08:24:11
Guys, there is a clip on youtube where he is the commentator which is how I know. Check it out.

17.) 20 May 2022 08:34:20
1jj, Tyler is not balanced. A guy who was willing a player via his words, to miss a penalty is not balanced. He said on commentary that Jota could miss cos he wasn't part of the first five pen takers is ridiculous. You have your opinion and that's fine but he is not balanced at all. Peter Drury? Yeah, that's balanced commentary right there.

18.) 20 May 2022 12:10:28
this seems to be the new fad - criticizing the dulcet tones and intention of a football commentator lol

I seen him called out for other games, not just Liverpool. Maybe he is just a boring commentator!? haha.

19.) 20 May 2022 13:51:20
I think many missed the point of my post
I stated quality and wasn’t on a witch-hunt to find out who dislikes us
I do enjoy good commentary and Tyler puts me to sleep while Drury helps me to enjoy the moment
Unfortunately I watch on streams and can only get whoever has the most stable connection
And sadly often times I end up with Tyler who spoils my match experience that’s why I’m critical of him
Just craving for some good commentary that’s all.



16 May 2022 13:22:14
2 wins and let's see what happens
Strange as it sounds, I actually prefer this scenario than if City lost to WH
Reason being GD is now immaterial and we won't be tempted to do silly things like against CP in 2014 and eventually went on to drop previous points

The goal is now super simple - just go and win 2 games and see what happens
Doesn't matter is it's 1-0 or 10-0.

1.) 16 May 2022 14:04:21
Sgynwa, fully agree with everything you have said and that has been my mantra on this scenario. Will all your games and then, hope. That's all we got right now regarding the title.

2.) 16 May 2022 14:05:05
Funnily enough, I was just thinking the same sgynwa.

However, even better would have been if we'd been able to squeeze a winner in against Spurs!

3.) 16 May 2022 14:10:24
Was thinking the same thing. If it were a slugfest last game of season City would always win by more goals. Paradoxically we have more chance of City drawing than us winning by more goals last game of season.

That makes sense in my head!

4.) 16 May 2022 14:57:44
When it was like 10 left I knew we both wouldn’t win every game. Just who fuched up less. It’s not over til it’s over.

5.) 16 May 2022 16:49:09
Y'alls thinking in some higher dimension which I cannot fathom.

City with 1 fewer point would mean that we would have an outside chance of winning on goal difference irrespective of City.

Now we are wholly reliant on then dropping points.

6.) 16 May 2022 17:33:10
Actually see it the other way. Preferred it being in our hands with the goal difference no matter how impossible it appeared. Now we are reliant on City dropping points. Either way it was a big task to ask and proud of the boys for even making it a fight as we were 14 points behind not long ago.

7.) 16 May 2022 21:48:40
agreed. i think if City had lost to West Ham we'd still be wanting them to at least draw with Villa anyways. Thankfully West Ham got a result because Villa beating City on the last day really would feel impossible.

now there is light, and where there is light there is hope. And where there is hope in your heart . . .

8.) 16 May 2022 23:22:48
We needed Villa to get a result on the final day regardless. The goal difference is just too much to realistically claw back.
Let’s just win our games and see what happens. With Fernandinho at CB City have a glaring weakness that Watkins and Ings will be looking to exploit. Plus Pipco always loved a goal and performance against City as he gets space high up the pitch and has quality on the ball to use it.
It will be difficult for Villa to keep a determined City out at the other end but if they are within a goal going into the last 10 minutes City will get nervous.
There’s still a chance.



15 May 2022 16:04:29
great that city dropped points
but i also just realise AV needs to play 2 matches in 3 days
against Burnley who may still have a chance to stay up if Everton don't win today

seems very unlikely that AV will have the legs to match a City at home, with 1 week's rest and a very clear goal

seems extremely unlikely, but stranger things have happened.

1.) 15 May 2022 16:14:59
Do you forget that Gerrard is Villa manager? He's going to do everything humanly possible to make City drop points.

2.) 15 May 2022 16:21:31
It does sound bonkers to even dream of Villa getting something at the Etihad, but we do have to remember that United were seconds away from winning the league in 2012 thanks to QPR doing exactly that!

3.) 15 May 2022 16:22:56
A draw from Villa against ManC is all we need. And winning our 2 games. Then it's ours.

4.) 15 May 2022 16:38:16
Maybe, just maybe the reverse will happen this time. Football is weird and while there is hope we have to keep believing.

Deep down we probably all expect city to whack them for 6 but luckily a game isn't decided before a ball is kicked so you just never know. But beat Southampton and the league goes to the final day, from where we were at Christmas, you can't ask for much more then that.

5.) 15 May 2022 17:12:37
I must admit a part of me wanted City to win 5-0 today so we could just concentrate on Real.

We go again Tuesday. No problem.
I would still be tempted to use squad against Southampton. They might just be in holiday mode after Leeds didn’t win - guaranteed to stay up now.

6.) 15 May 2022 17:39:19
Are you all forgetting Watkins and Ings gave VVD and Konate and very tough game last week and they are one of the best defensive partnerships in the league. They will be against an unfit Laporte and 40 year old midfielder Fernandinho at Centre back. Plus Pipco owes us one for the way he left and Gerrard never won the league at Liverpool he’d love to get something at City to win is the league.
This is far from over you know.

7.) 15 May 2022 17:44:45
I think our squad can do the job
And most likely gd won’t make a difference now
So let’s jus focus on winning both games and see where we end.

8.) 15 May 2022 17:47:08
That's it WYred, beat Southampton and the league goes fown to the last day of the season. Don't think many even on here thought we'd run it that close at Christmas

And whatever happens, to even get this far is fantastic. What a season, but how unreal would it be if luck went our way eh? Great season though no matter what.

9.) 15 May 2022 18:36:41
We need to beat Southampton. One game at a time, Redmen.
We don't need favours from other sides. If we finish second, it's not because of Aston Villa.

{Ed0666's Note - damn right it’s because we let brentford score in injury time and we failed to beat Brighton from a 2 goal advantage etc etc

10.) 15 May 2022 19:01:54
Absolutely spot on Rigsby.

We need to beat Southampton - that’s all that matters.

Where we are and what we achieve is down to us.

11.) 15 May 2022 19:32:05
Bill, I thought the league was done at Christmas, but we have been consistent and picked up points when city didn’t. Whatever happens now they can be proud that they got this close to a team that is operating in cheat mode.

12.) 15 May 2022 20:25:34
I thought City weren't going to drop any more points this season?

13.) 15 May 2022 21:22:58
I so like the sound of that. "I thought City were not going to drop any more points this season"? 😂

(Eds, help. There's an echo in this chat room) .

14.) 15 May 2022 22:42:22
I thought so too, Flash. Could it be that footie is NOT an exact science after all? I wonder.

15.) 15 May 2022 23:33:41
Before we get carried away with the “I thought City weren’t going to drop points again” we’re right you’re wrong brigade. Let’s not forget 2 weeks ago we also dropped points.

16.) 16 May 2022 12:12:00
Agree w you Ed 0666
I believe we have the best team and squad
And we threw away too many leads, including 2 goal leads
So it more of us handing the title to city than they have been dominant or whatever people in media want to drum up

Still, nothing is over and we may just nick it if they screw up

How I feel about it! Damn proud
We are running city so close and can even say we handed them the title though we don’t have the resource they have.

{Ed0666's Note - yes but they dont have JK mate. He’s a generational talent. How many people can inspire so many around him to greatness? The man is a born politician..I’d vote for him in a heartbeat. I would rather someone who gets our club, our DNA, our history & heritage than someone like Pep who I like a lot but let’s face it but he’s a mercenary. Despite all their wealth and to get close as we did to them Im immensely proud.

Whao. We now have 3 young players in that position - Jones, Elliot, Carvalho.

Seems like Ox will be gone.

I hope taki can stay
He is a good utility man for front 3 and midfield 2.

Whao. If we do get Bowen, we’ll have a super strong front 6 that can rotate a lot more and keep things fresh.

Would you say midfield will be our priority? As it stands, we are pretty strong and stocked in all other areas of the pitch but midfield may need some upgrades in there.

{Ed002's Note - The club will look to making changes but I doubt there will be significant changes. The forwards are getting older and something will need to be done before too long. I can see one or two midfield changes.}

I’m actually not so keen on him. He’s done very well since he left, winning many league titles and even the CL and I continue to wish him well.

But personally, I don’t see it as a good business as he is
- already 29 (and we have an ageing squad)
- actually feel that he slows down our play if he played in midfield (could be because he felt he was the best player then in LFC and hogged the ball more, but towards the end he became predictable in my opinion)
- may be back up to the front 3 but not sure that’s what he wants (and I personally wouldn’t drop Mane nor Salah for him)

Ed 002 I recall you mention at one time he was noted as one of top 5 youngsters in the world. What went wrong for him?

{Ed002's Note - He was really well liked but it has gone downhill as he has not settled anywhere and there have been off-field issues.}

Klopp is great but event he makes mistakes
So it’s fine to say he had a few bad signings
The plus was most of his big money spends and most players in general turned out fine
At one point, the norm was we got most wrong and the one that turned out fine was the exception than the rule
So I’ll gladly take what we have now.

Klopp is more akin to Shankly, took the club from the dumpster to the top
We can only hope his successor is akin to Paisley! stay at the top, dominate for at least a decade and make everyone else look silly, even all the clubs with deep pockets swimming in the league now.

i hope minamino stays though
v good squad player
has goals in him, will always put in a shift and does have good vision, passing and pressing about him
was light weight when he first joined, but i think he has now gotten used to the english game.

i'm w you Jonesy
we win, city draws, and we nick the title
that's how its going to end
come next wk, we beat madrid and repeat what happened in 1981
beat wolves on final day to win the league, beat madrid in paris to win the european cup
only this time, is the qaud.
