Ed, is there any truth that Coutinho is looking for a move to Manchester United or is this just lazy journalism?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what he wants, sorry. But certainly he is one of the players Barcelona want sold this summer.}

1.) 10 Mar 2019 17:52:33
Thank you ed.

2.) 10 Mar 2019 19:13:36
Ed, if you ever have any openings in your rodeo, I'd like to apply.

{Ed002's Note - I'll take note of that.}

3.) 10 Mar 2019 19:29:23
Ed002 why would they be so quick to get rid when they went to the trouble to attain him. Is it financial or another reason.

{Ed002's Note - He is not playing as well as they want and they are willing to cut him lose and take a hit on the funds bringing a replacement in.}

4.) 10 Mar 2019 21:06:18
certainly Liverpool wouldn't be interested, would they?

5.) 10 Mar 2019 23:49:33
No chance Stone mate, not at the price Barcelona would be after.

6.) 10 Mar 2019 23:48:54
Would we want him back after way he left?

7.) 11 Mar 2019 01:23:05
Coutinho can play LW AM RW CM he can rotate with the front three and in the middle. I understand he faked injuries because he wanted his DREAM move but he was doing great with us. apart from that he has friends here in Firmino Moreno and now we have Alisson Fabinho he will feel at home here and he will give us his best years.
Just imagine
Alisson-A. Arnold-Gomez-VanDijk-Robertson-Fabinho-Keita-Coutinho-Salah-Mane-Firmino.

8.) 11 Mar 2019 10:25:47
I think we have moved on as a club and are better off without him. Don't think he works hard enough off the ball and he is a high light player that looks better than he is because of the goals he scores but how many shots does he have but fore one goes in would much prefer are front 3 over him and in the middle ox all day for me. I know he has more ability on the ball than ox but look how hard david silva kevin de bruyne and bernardo silva. Think its time to move on.

9.) 11 Mar 2019 11:24:53
Asensio is apparently available in the summer for £69m apparently, I would much rather we buy him. Amazing player with serious potential, probably cheaper than Countinho (not that I would want to see him back) don't get me wrong, Coutinho was an amazing player for us, but he cooked his goose with the fans over how he acted trying to leave - well he did for me anyway!

{Ed001's Note - is Asensio really amazing?}

10.) 11 Mar 2019 13:17:53
I loved Couts during his time at Liverpool. However, I wouldn't be happy if we were to take him back. I just think for the price we could do better in terms of signing a player that would fit Klopps system. For me, id go all out to sign Son from Spurs. I don't think they'd sell unfortunately. And Levy isn't exactly a dream to deal with either.

11.) 11 Mar 2019 14:17:01
Are you seriously saying you would prefer Son to Coutinho.

We will not be getting him back, but coutinho is a wonderful player. creative and game changing, just what we need in games such as west ham and Leicester.

12.) 11 Mar 2019 15:03:19
We drastically improved when Coutinho left last season. We are currently having one of our best seasons ever. We do not miss him. When we play against deep defences Coutinho is not the answer, we had the same struggles vs this kind of strategy the entire time Coutinho was with us.

13.) 11 Mar 2019 17:04:33
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.

14.) 11 Mar 2019 18:39:40
I don't think either will ever happen but, if push came to shove, I would definitely have Son over Coutinho. Coutinho is excellent don't get me wrong, but Son's all round game is superb and he is an absolute grafter. He'd suit out style perfectly as well.

15.) 11 Mar 2019 19:27:02
Coutinho was in and out of games and went missing a lot. Then he would bang a worldie in and all would be forgotten. He really should get more time and space in the Spanish league to do his stuff. So if he's struggling is really a player we would want back for £100 mill plus. No thanks move on don't go back.

16.) 11 Mar 2019 21:36:01
The fee alone make him unobtainable before you consider the other factors, such as how he left, how well we played without him, the cost, his overall salary etc etc.

We should move on, he’s not worth the £100 million being mentioned for me. For that we could sign both Fekir and Brandt with change to spare.

17.) 12 Mar 2019 05:51:11
For the crazy amount of money for buying Countinho, I predict he will just end up staying at Barcelona for maybe 2 more seasons. Luckily he would have some game time but definitely the the star player of them. And finally he would end up like Cesc Fabregas, leaving there cheap to Italy maybe?

What do you think about my prediction Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want him sold and will drop the price if they need to - selling him obviously saves them money on payments to Liverpool.}

18.) 12 Mar 2019 22:42:44
So we get kicked twice then? Losing him to Barcelona and now losing what I would imagine would be a significant chunk of his transfer fee because they want to sell him. I know we don’t like to talk money but that’s kind of kicking us twice - why would anyone want him back (unless it’s so we can sell him again and get paid something?! )

19.) 14 Mar 2019 03:29:34
Maybe we can do something to negotiate a good deal involving the payments left.

20.) 16 Mar 2019 21:07:02
That’s confusing, why would it save them money on payments to us? Surely any money owed has to be honoured regardless of whether he is there or not? Or are we talking about add ons for appearances, etc?

{Ed002's Note - We are talking about a large sum of money that would be due if he stayed, played and Barcelona were successful. I have explained the structure of the fee before. Sadly many of the fans don’t believe it.}



02 Nov 2018 18:19:38
Ed002, is there any potential impact to the recent allegations against PSG and Man City. I know not Liverpool related, don't beat me up to much.

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what allegations have been made but if it relates back to the 12/13 era it would be perhaps a case of UEFA finding their new turbo-charged feet in terms of handing out penalties. I have seen several posts about the general theme, if it is no more than bitching about it really being much worse than it was, that may well be truce. They got abrupt punishment that perhaps could have been more serious, but someone will need to give me a pointer to the specifics for me to rationally comment.}}

1.) 02 Nov 2018 23:27:17
I read Psg should sell mbappe and neymar because the money used for them wasn’t financially fair?

{Ed002's Note - I am afraid I am not sure what is meant by that.}

2.) 04 Nov 2018 11:19:13
I believe the allegations were that Infantino met with the Qatari’s and said if they buy PSG he will overlook FFP in their favour and ensure that they got to host the 2022 World Cup. There was something similar to do with Man City but I’m not sure of the full details of that.

{Ed002's Note - That sounds like nonsense from Twitter. Regardless, that is all totally untrue.}

3.) 04 Nov 2018 14:32:32
Yeah I assumed as much. Thanks Ed002. It was football leaks that broke the story and I have no idea how reliable they are.

{Ed002's Note - They have seemingly got some information that dates between 2014 and recently which is why it is muddled.



11 Jun 2018 23:26:31
Just read on the Echo that Liverpool are "set to step up the transfer chase for Xherdan Shaqiri". I'm still think there is a chance for Fekir or one of the others mentioned by the eds, my opinion is that Shaqiri is an addition to. But, what do I know.

1.) 12 Jun 2018 05:29:24
Yeah Shaqiri transfer not related to Fekir.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 06:32:19
But getting Shaqiri would mean we are not getting Malcom and the likes of.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 08:37:36
Malcom is pretty much set for Inter Milan. Contract was negotiated but Bordeaux doesn't like the proposed payment structure by Inter Milan (Inter wants a loan with a buy at the end of the season and bordeaux wants the money now) .

btt: I don't rate shaqiri at all. Saw him (the few times he played) at Bayern and wasnt impressed, saw him at Milan and wasnt impressed and he didn't impress me at stoke either. He was a very talented player back in the day but he thinks way to highly about his abilitys and has an attitude problem.

4.) 12 Jun 2018 09:51:40
He also looks a little chubby imo.

5.) 12 Jun 2018 12:21:56
Oh god the irony in the comment above :D.

6.) 12 Jun 2018 15:59:17
A lot of Liverpool fans seem to be in favor of this transfer. And if he joins, I hope it works out. But I do worry about his attitude. Some are justifying it as not wanting to play for a losing side like Stoke, but these same problems were there at Bayern - when he felt he was too good to be coming off the bench; as well as at Inter - when he felt he wasn’t getting enough playing time. He reminds me of Balotelli, where he’s had his chances at the big clubs and shouldn’t deserve another one, despite being blessed with natural talent. Just my two cents. and again, if we sign up, I’m backing him to the hilt.

7.) 12 Jun 2018 16:58:51
What’s a transfer chase?
How do you step one up?
How do you get set up to step one up?

{Ed002's Note - You can only do it when the club is on "red alert".}

8.) 12 Jun 2018 18:21:48
You need a war chest as well.

9.) 12 Jun 2018 18:38:32
Does a transfer chase have to take place in a Babelcopter?

10.) 12 Jun 2018 21:05:06
A transfer chase is something that happens after you've monitored aggressively.

11.) 12 Jun 2018 23:21:54
Is it not when you start warming up the fax machine and prepare a delegation for a long journey?

The irony of the chubby comment @ fat boy slim 😂😂😂😂.

12.) 12 Jun 2018 21:00:00
Ed002 I’m curious, how do clubs go about initiating “red alert? ” Sirens?

{Ed002's Note - Through Google.}

13.) 12 Jun 2018 23:53:46
I have few misgivings about signing Shaqiri. Anyone who scores worldies is welcome. I think it's a decent signing and he could be one that really surprises people.

14.) 13 Jun 2018 04:16:27
Not all transfer chases have Babelcopters, but all Babelcopters have transfer chases.

15.) 13 Jun 2018 07:35:31
This is anfield has an article on Shaqiri written by a Stoke fan who does a podcast. He says he was their best player last season, albeit not difficult and thinks some of the question marks pointed at him over his attitude are unfounded. He does question how he would fit in with genpress like has been said on here but in today’s market 12m isn’t bad for a player who could come on and produce magic from the bench.

{Ed001's Note - oh well if one fan says it then it must be true.}

16.) 13 Jun 2018 08:32:39
It’s an opinion on someone who watched him every week last season, more than anyone here who is giving an opinion.

{Ed001's Note - and the opinion of a biased fan who might know f all about the game as well. Still pointless isn't it no matter how you try and dress it up. I am sure if I was to look I could find plenty of fans who watched him every week who would disagree, but that would be just as pointless doing so. As for more than anyone else here, you are being a blert now as you have no idea what anyone else has done. Attitude like yours is why it is a waste of time anyone giving an opinion, I am certainly done speaking to you. Little point if you are just going to make up stuff you couldn't possibly know.}

17.) 13 Jun 2018 11:26:33
I’m passing on the opinion of a bloke who runs a fans podcast for stoke. He obviously watched him week in week out last season and has praise for him, if someone watched Stoke more than him on a Liverpool transfer rumour page I would be amazed and seriously question what they are doing with their spare time!
Would he be biased to a player leaving? I’m sure I wouldn’t be in the same position.

{Ed001's Note - no, you were denigrating everyone else's opinion to try and make some bloke who does a podcast's more valid. You have no idea if the guy even has a clue about footie or not. As for watching them week in and week out, if you live anywhere but the UK, every single Prem game is screened live and on repeat, so anyone can watch them all very easily. You go to any bar or café here and there is at least one game being shown, usually more. It is not difficult in reality to have seen every single Stoke game last season.

As for biased, you have no idea what his biases are. He might have a particular liking for fat lazy players who spend 85 minutes a game throwing their arms in the air complaining about the ball not being at his feet even though he was the one who actually gave it away.}

18.) 13 Jun 2018 11:56:11
I'm really ok with shaqiri. still young, yes he's had his issues but he is coming to an interesting that interesting mid-20s part of your life where you start to think a bit more clearly than you did at 20.

19.) 13 Jun 2018 11:53:13
I am in no way saying this guys view is correct, I’m just passing on an alternative view from someone who has watched him more than people on here last season.

20.) 13 Jun 2018 15:43:13
Ed was it his attitude problems and selfishness that seen other larger clubs pass on the chance to sign him?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

Curioius, what was your highlight this season? Outside of the Champions League, but for the premier league season. It's hard for me to decide between Origi's goal against Everton, Sturridge's goal against Chelsea, and Salah's goal against Chelsea.

1.) 12 May 2019 19:09:07
I'd probably go Salah's goal vs Chelsea myself. Extraordinary effort, and the reaction of the crowd was immense. Bobby's goal vs Arsenal was also a wonderful moment.

2.) 12 May 2019 19:17:39
Divock's goal against Everton.

3.) 12 May 2019 19:20:16
Definitely Bobby's v arsenal for me.

4.) 12 May 2019 19:27:04
TAA’s corner against Barcelona . :::. So long as we get number 6!

5.) 12 May 2019 19:31:37
Sorry I forgot it was EPL only.

Beating Man Utd so convincingly ar Anfield and setting in motion the changes in management that are leading to a fundamental crisis at Old Trafford that could see them mid table next season.

6.) 12 May 2019 21:27:11
Divock’s goal v Newcastle to take it all the way to the end.

7.) 12 May 2019 21:52:05
Oh good one Tommy.

8.) 12 May 2019 23:28:49
what about you Ed 01?

{Ed001's Note - we came second, there is no highlight until we win something.}

9.) 12 May 2019 21:52:05
Oh good one Tommy.

10.) 14 May 2019 16:20:15
Allison save vs napoli was season changing too, we'd be long gone out of Europe without that moment.



12 May 2019 17:38:21
Salah, many of us have felt the wrath of other posters and the Eds. Don't let that get you down. All of us have opinions and sometimes they aren't popular and we get a bit of schtick. I caught the wrath with my stance on wearing the poppy for example. You need to come back and post. I view this site as a community. In all communities we have disagreements, but what we all are united on is our love for LFC. I love coming on here and reading the views of my fellow reds even when I disagree with what they have to say. YNWA.

1.) 12 May 2019 17:55:50
Exactly stone. Come back salah dude. We need your optimism to keep our spirits up going into the final.

And i agree with you too. I think we will brush spurs aside, i think we will win by 2/ 3 goals or more.

2.) 12 May 2019 18:06:58
First of all congrats to Man City on winning the league. To get 98 points again this season after only buying one player last Summer is a huge achievement! My only fear now is that they will invest in the squad again this summer and they will be even stronger next season!
Secondly, well done Liverpool on bringing the title race to the last day. Sadly it wasn’t to be and those 7 draws compared to City’s 2 cost us dearly! Hopefully the players that are brought in over the Summer will strengthen the first 11. Also best of luck to the players that are leaving.
And lastly, unfortunately Salah has been trying to draw attention with some of his posts lately and I haven’t seen any abuse among the posters since he left so it might be better if he takes a break!
I’m sure he will be back before the start of the new season 😁.

{Ed001's Note - they didn't only buy one player.}

3.) 12 May 2019 18:19:34
I echo your sentiment Stone, I think me and you have had a few debates this season mate but agreed more often than not. Come back Salah, need another Hull lad on here. And Robbie can't disagree there mate, Spurs are no push overs but feel we will win.

4.) 12 May 2019 18:30:23
My mistake apologies Ed, I thought Mahrez was the only addition to the first team squad last summer! Who else did they buy last Summer?

{Ed001's Note - they bought a number of players but Mahrez was the only one intended for the first team. It was mostly players being shifted around to other teams in their group etc, but City bought them.}

5.) 12 May 2019 18:30:42
agreed kimuaking. if we all agreed, it would be a very boring site really. i really look at this as a sort of family. Ed 01, i'm not sure if that was your intention when you all started the site but well done. You and all of the eds should be proud of what you created here.

{Ed001's Note - I had no idea what to expect when we started it. I had never even been online when we begun it. I just put the content together for Ed033 to create a site. Back then I didn't have a clue what the net was like or what it was possible to do.}

6.) 12 May 2019 18:33:02
It is easy to only buy one or two players when you spend £300m the season before. City have spent more than everyone including us in the last few years. It is what it is though and next year we will have no excuses regarding money.

We have the best defence inc keeper in the world. I tried hard but can't think of better. Front 3 as good as any, just need improve the back up and sign the all important playmaker.

7.) 12 May 2019 19:05:49
Spot on stone mate. I’m half the poster without him.

{Ed001's Note - literally.}

8.) 12 May 2019 19:28:40
Thank you :) .

I honestly don't mind been disagreed with, I know how to take it on the chin, same goes for negativity, Walter will support me when I say I don't mind negativity.

What does concern me though is getting called arrogant from people who don't even know me lol it's beyond a joke. I'm far from an arrogant person but because I believe in this team, it gets mistaken for arrogance. It got silly which is why I am more then happy to walk away from it.

The biggest problem with online is people get misinterpreted far too much.

You only live once, I can't be arsed to be honest, I believe and if people don't that's upto them, if people look at me as arrogant they're wrong but some people on here can't accept to be wrong.

As for Liverpool and City, I was wrong all season, fair play to City, they deserve it but we have a lot to be proud of. I stand by my comment the other day, we will win the CL final.

Next time I post, I might be 'NegativeRedSalah' I think I'll join the dark side. ;) (and then I saw a pig fly) .

I was wrong as well, although I remain defiant. I said a few weeks ago that I would be shocked if we did not lift the trophy today and on June 1. I am shocked today. I do think and will go on record that we will lift the premier league trophy next season. I know that we all say that every year, but I really believe it.

11.) 12 May 2019 20:33:26
Salah, your faith in Liverpool is great and I enjoy your posts. I do not think you are arrogant, but people here can only judge you by your posts.
I think you were unintentionally dismissive of Spurs due to your loyalty for Liverpool. You even said Ajax would have been better for the final as Spurs is too easy and we will destroy them.
We all believe in Liverpool to win the final but it was your complete lack of respect for Spurs that was the issue.
It's done and dusted now buddy, no harm done and we got a final to look forward to. Keep posting.

12.) 12 May 2019 21:59:18
Me too, we will win it next year. With an intergrated fabhino and keita. Aoc back. Trent maturing, gomez fit. Robbo getting better and better. Origi's improvement. Hendo playing more advanced. Gini getting the recognition he deserves. Alisson more settled.

13.) 12 May 2019 22:20:39
Keep being optimistic salah, I remember after the Everton draw I said both teams won't go 100% for the rest of the season. How wrong was I! But nothing wrong with belief.

14.) 12 May 2019 23:54:45
All the way through City’s run I was convinced they’d slip up, even once. But they proved me wrong, I can’t think of many occasions where a team has taken 54 points for the second half of the season, that is phenomenal.

15.) 12 May 2019 21:59:18

02 May 2019 13:09:10
I can take losses, but this is the worst I've felt since the loss in the final last year. Maybe I shouldn't have quit drinking, I don't know. I need a pick me up badly. I think it is because the game was there for the taking and we didn't take advantage of the opportunities that we had. I'm trying to take solace in that, but I don't believe in moral victories. Even after losing 3-0 I think we are the better side. But, the scoreline doesn't support my belief.

1.) 02 May 2019 13:49:25
100% empathy and agreement with you there stone.

What makes it worse is Klopp coming out with statements like “our best champions league away performance in the last 2 seasons” and “we can’t play any better”


2.) 02 May 2019 14:02:43
yeah, I don't understand that comment either. Maybe it's just a psychological strategy to keep the players from being too down.

3.) 02 May 2019 14:21:40
Would you feel better Ron if Klopp had said “I thought we were rubbish. I don’t know what they were doing on the pitch. How Milner missed I’ll never know. ”
Of course he’s going to accentuate the positive. He’s trying to keep the team focused and confident for the remaining games. Jesus, one defeat away from home and everybody is throwing their toys out.

4.) 02 May 2019 14:40:36
I have to agree with you there Ron. I saw his first post match interviews and he was smiling and saying things like " I am completely happy with the way the boys played" and "Messi is unstoppable". As far as I am concerned, Ronaldo is just as equally "unstoppable" and yet the young inexperienced boys of Ajax managed it quite well, didn't they? And how can he say he is happy with the boys when they miss clear golden chances. It seemed like he was just being thankful for the privilege of having gotten so far in the competition, when most of us think the team deserved it through hard effort and quality play. I don't expect Klopp to show sadness, regret or cry on camera, but keep the huge smile to yourself, man.

I know this will be an unpopular post, but I know what it is, with my opinion . It'll be his fourth year next season (I am not saying this season is a write off by any stretch of the imagination) . Klopp has been blessed with owners who have given him what he wanted and when he wanted it. Most of us are dreaming of dynasty (I believe we have good enough players now, for one) and yet, he will probably be gone in 3 years' time. So if we don't start winning, and like right now, not only will key players start leaving but we'll be faced with the dreaded "transition phase" in a couple of years.

I like to think it's about commenting on unfulfilled potential, but I'm probably just being impatient.

5.) 02 May 2019 15:41:56
There is “accentuating the positives” and then there is utter tripe that only serves to make the team look weak and defeatist. Could you imagine Shanks saying that? Or any other successful manager?
He didn’t need to say that, he could have said he was happy with the performance.
Best away performance for 2 years? Absolute nonsense and I know for a fact the team can play better.

6.) 02 May 2019 15:46:28
Didnt Ronaldo score two goals against the boys of Ajax?

7.) 02 May 2019 15:58:11
God damn it. If we had have taken our chances and Barcelona missed theirs then things would be completely different (obviously), but the point is its was fine margins and we played really really well in the main. We out competed or were equal with them in practically every department except goals, no one does that at the Nou Camp. It was a great game and a great performance in a really difficult arena. Of course Klopp is going to accentuate the positives because there are lots to take. I wish people would take disappointment with a bit more realism.

8.) 02 May 2019 15:59:17
My biggest frustration is that I feel the final would be more winnable than usual.
And then watching Henderson, Milner and Wijnaldum huffing and puffing trying to get a goal when they'd have been better trying to prevent them.

9.) 02 May 2019 16:08:46
Yes Ronaldo scored. But Ajax made it to the semis and Juventus did not. And Ajax has no star player at the same level as Ronaldo and Messi. That's my point. Messi scoring twice and being "unstoppable" is used to describe their victory. Our boys' inability to reply and score is papered over with " best away performance in 2 years". Is there anyone out there who thinks the score reflects everything about the game, goals aside? Both teams had the exact number of shots on target. One team scored 3. The other scored none. I've watched almost every post match conference Klopp has given since he joined LFC. How many times have we heard him say "we need to to better" in this area or that area. "Much much better", despite having won the game. And here, after a season defining game, he decides to smile and express awe and admiration for the opponent, after losing.

10.) 02 May 2019 19:38:44
Ron, Klopp was correct in his analysis. The game plan worked for the most part and for 70 minutes, we were the better team both offensively and esp. defensively. It got so bad for Barcelona that their fans were booing them and Messi for the most part, was shut down. Had e taken our chances then we are not here and would be hailing Klopp for a master stroke cos tactically, I have never seen Barcelona get dominated on their home patch like we did since Bayern Pummeled them in the 12/ 13 CL semi final.

Now, would I have used the same words Klopp used? No cos a 3-0 win is not something you want to deflect away regardless of how well you played BUT if even the Barcelona fans, their manager and many other pundits and ex players all over the world, are saying the score was harsh on LFC cos we dominated or matched Barcelona for 75 minutes then Klopp has a right to say it. It is not media spin. It is what we all saw with our own eyes.

{Ed002's Note - If Klopp has turned out and said that then Liverpool needs a new coach. One who has a game plan for 90 minutes.}

11.) 02 May 2019 22:25:51
a game can get away from you very quickly regardless of how well you played in it till it got away from you.



20 Apr 2019 19:49:05
We have to win silverware this year. We absolutely have to. I really think that once we do, we will start another dominant reign to rival the '70's and '80's. The sleeping giant is awaking!

1.) 20 Apr 2019 20:36:25
Me too mate, we win the league this year it'll be one of many! but the league isn't enough, let's be greedy and get the CL as well ;) .

2.) 20 Apr 2019 20:55:24
i agree salah. i really think and believe we can win a double this year. everyone is afraid of us.

3.) 20 Apr 2019 21:15:52
We do need to win something but unfortunately the league is out of our hands. I don't want to be negative and hope I'm wrong but I just can't see anyone taking points off city now. They are too good and have the experience to get through. We have had one of our greatest seasons in the league this year and we should be proud of the team no matter what.

I do think however the champions league is there for us. The double will be incredible, but think the champions league is our most likely trophy this year now.

4.) 20 Apr 2019 21:24:06
'everyone is afraid of us'

Exactly mate! and this will be City's downfall, they're afraid of us, pressure will get to them.

Sitting here now, when you think of it, every team really are afraid of playing Liverpool right now because we're that good! on our day we can beat every team out there. Barcelona we'll destroy but it starts with Cardiff tomorrow, bring any team on, we won't roll over. City will and that'll be the difference in this title WIN we're about to achieve.

{Ed025's Note - city are afraid of no one salah, what you fail to grasp my old mate is that liverpool have won exactly nothing yet, the time to start crowing is when they actually do i would suggest, they have a good chance in 2 very high profile competitions but thats it at this time....adele is only just warming up..

5.) 20 Apr 2019 21:51:36
Salah, get real, mate. Neither City or Barcelona are afraid of us. I'm sure they respect us, but afraid? I don't think so. I agree with Ed025, until such time that we win something let's just be modest about things.

6.) 20 Apr 2019 21:58:03
Barcelona won’t be scared of us until they get to Anfield and start to wonder why the ground is literally shaking.

7.) 20 Apr 2019 22:00:36
Each to their own Rome, but I certainly think differently to you mate.

8.) 20 Apr 2019 22:00:45
If city end up winning 14 games in a row they will deserve to win the league but it’s not over yet. Whatever happens now we are set to haul over 90 points in the league and are in the last 4 in Europe, it’s been an incredible year let’s hope we run unbeaten till the end of the year and cap it off with some silverware.

9.) 20 Apr 2019 22:39:48
I have NEVER understood this "We have to win something or else" conversation. Saying LFC has to win something is like asking if water is wet. Also, How can we ask Klopp and the boys that they have to win something WHEREAS they approach every game (regardless of who plays) with the intention to win it? It just boggles my mind.

Having said that, there is a possibility that we win the CL or even the PL as well as there is a possibility that we don't win anything this season in spite of ALL the effort our boys and Klopp have put in. These are two realities that I personally, have made peace with cos in the end, it's football. All we can hope for is that our team can overcome the obstacles in front of them and make us proud this season with a big trophy. YNWA!

10.) 20 Apr 2019 22:59:28
I’m with you on that Red. You don’t have to win you have to compete consistently. If you do that then you’ll inevitably win something in the end.
The problem you have is that lots of other teams want to win something too and throw obscene amounts of money about to achieve it.

11.) 21 Apr 2019 00:06:24
"The problem you have is that lots of other teams want to win something too and throw obscene amounts of money about to achieve it. "

You do know that Liverpool did throw an obscene amounts of money to build the team, let's get away from only other clubs buy trophies because we doing the same . and there is nothing wrong with that . its a competitive league and the owners understand to win it you have to match the spending.

12.) 21 Apr 2019 00:10:19
"another dominant reign to rival the '70's and '80's"
The days of dominance are far gone . the best you get is like the City or Chelsea scenario where they win it a year or 2 then slip up and then come back . there are 3 to 4 clubs in the premiere league with enough spending power to make it competitive.

13.) 21 Apr 2019 06:24:28
Great post Redwolf. Nail on the head, if we don't win the league we can't possibly be classed as failures or bottlers, our points tally would normally have a league in our grasps at this stage. No fault of ours that city are clinically getting 3 points every week. We've had another great European adventure too and if we win nothing and then people start spouting about klopp not winning trophies it will really irritate me haha, this young team will achieve success even if we just fall shy this year.

14.) 20 Apr 2019 21:52:08
Each to their own opinion Ed25 mate but imo they are bricking it because of how close we are. How's things mate? good to see you on here, as always.

{Ed025's Note - i think they deserve great credit salah, yourselves and city have proven to be head and shoulders above everyone else and its been achieved by playing great football as well, i dont think they are bricking it though mate as they have won playing with style and are very entertaining to watch, im good thanks and hope you and the family are too my friend..

15.) 20 Apr 2019 22:01:03
I disagree with you Ed025 and Rome, read the comments from Pep. They know that once this team learns how to win, there will be no stopping us. It is right there for a Liverpool revival. All it will take is for this club to win one piece of silverware and then watch out. It will happen.

{Ed025's Note - that may or may not happen this season stone but i must say you have had a great season whatever happens, liverpool are dining at the top table again and its nice to see with them and city having an epic battle for the title...and just think what a great season it will be next year when it will be a 3 horse race with everton joining the party mate.. :)

16.) 20 Apr 2019 22:50:05
have to respectfully disagree ed025. Just read Pep's comments from the last two years about liverpool. They are definitely afraid of us. they most definitely see us as a threat.

{Ed025's Note - of course they do stone you are their biggest threat so thats blatently obvious, whoever wins the title will deserve it mate..

17.) 21 Apr 2019 07:02:12
Think we are going way overboard with this 'City are afraid of us' thing. Man to man, they have a much better squad than us and the question remains as to whether we can sustain this kind of form going into next season as well. City are proven champions, we are potential champions.
If you asked Real, Barca, Bayern or Juve who they would rather face between City and us, it would be us. We are one or two major injuries away from falling apart coz our bench tbh is bang average compared to City's. Let's not behave like t**** coz we are yet to even win something and there is always the chance we end the season empty handed. Just enjoy the ride. LFC have no interest in proving a point or announcing their arrival to the Europe's elite. Its all about doing our best and hoping we can win something while being matched up against a very strong City side.
Salah, you sound like one of the Real Madrid fans after their club has gone on a Galactico signing spree btw.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think any of what you say about Real etc has any basis in fact. Those clubs are much happier facing City, their fans would much prefer to face City, as they have never won anything in Europe and are seen as a team that can't quite make the step up.}

18.) 21 Apr 2019 07:35:10
We have not won anything yet so why the need to say other clubs should be afraid of us? Why the need to make big proclamations before the season's even ended? Why not just enjoy the fact we are winning lots of games unlike previous years?
There were so many of us including me last season saying Real would be trembling with fear at the sight of our front 3 in the UCL final? We ended up with egg on our face and poor Karius bore the brunt of our entitlement and frustration.
City are not afraid of us. They just see us as their closest competition and their slight nervousness is probably down to them not being challenged domestically last season and expecting another easy league campaign. It could easily be Spurs or Man utd that take our place as title challenges next season if they sign the right players. I would rather we waited to win a few trophies before mouthing off like Real and Barcelona fans like to do.

{Ed001's Note - who cares? This is such a boring whine for god's sake, let people be excited if they want to be. As for the rest, utter nonsense, Spurs are never going to win the league under Poch, they are miles away from it, unless everyone else folds. Even then they will hand it to Leicester! As for United, they are even further away with Woodward and Ole in charge. Awful football under a cheerleader while being run by a merchant banker with less clue about the game than a 4 year old.

You have turned into Walter. Next you will be backing Arsenal for the treble....}

19.) 21 Apr 2019 08:09:51
I have an idea, Stone, Aoe, WY, zed, Ed1 and the others who appreciate how well the team are doing, let's all be miserable and unappreciative, it seems being excited about one of the best teams we've had for years is out of the question these days?

For the record I couldn't care less who disagrees with me, I'm not here to please people, I'm here to voice my opinion and my opinion is City are sh*t scared of us, as are every other team to face us right now. If people disagree that's fine, I'll live lol this is a page full of different opinions, if you can't accept that then bugger off to a page where everybody agrees (good luck in finding it) .

20.) 21 Apr 2019 08:50:59
Interesting thread. I don’t think there is any Liverpool fan who is miserable or unappreciative of how Klopp and the team are doing this season. We have been fantastic and to go toe to toe with City we have potentially punched above our weight a little. The fact our front 3 do not miss any games is also huge. I love the comment about the bot winning but the competing competitively as that is so true. Only 1 team can win the trophy and until This season we haven’t competitively competed for the title in some time.

21.) 21 Apr 2019 08:53:38
Salah, I follow us home and away, unfortunately I can't get to Cardiff game. I appreciate and understand your enthusiasm and excitement, this is the best side we have had since 87/ 88, but I will refrain from saying such things as City are sh*t scared of us, until we have won the league, be it this year or next.
I will be there screaming my head off, when we do, and maybe shedding a tear. I was there when we last lifted it in 1990 and on all the occasions in the 1980s, when we took it for granted. Don't mistake my tempered attitude with being miserable. I sing as loud as anyone when I'm there, I just prefer to refrain from gloating on social media until we have something to gloat about.

22.) 21 Apr 2019 09:01:19
We won the League Cup under Dalglish but this season has easily surpassed that.
If we don't win anything, it's still been a brilliant season and the best for years.
Enjoy it for Fowler's sake.

23.) 21 Apr 2019 09:15:14
'Enjoy it for Fowler's sake. '

Exactly mate.

Don't worry rome, my comment wasn't aimed at you mate.

24.) 21 Apr 2019 09:30:36
Happy Easter to you and your family, Salah.
I've said this many times, at the end of the day we all have one thing in common, we just have different ways of expressing ourselves. I probably come across as a miserable old git (which I am! ), but my love for the club is as great as anyones.

All the best to everyone out there, hoping we are euphoric at 6.00pm.

25.) 21 Apr 2019 09:32:40
Hey Salah, who said you are wrong in the way you want to celebrate the way we have been playing this season? I have been having a ball watching us win game after game (which is extremely new for someone like me who wasn't even born during our glory days), but it is also important to not get carried away coz we are one bad week away from ending up empty handed.
If things go awry in the next few weeks, there will be a bunch of fans calling for KLopp and the players' heads because they didn't meet our expectations. We have had a fantastic season by the standards set over the past 3 decades but there is still some way to go to reach the top of the mountain.
The 'City are afraid of us' however will only be valid until we have stamped our authority on the league title at least a few times.

26.) 21 Apr 2019 10:21:36
With regards to teams being afraid of us I personally think that’s wrong. I believe all teams respect our ability and are worried about playing us but the fact that every team raises their game against us shows they are not afraid. When we play the so called lesser teams they are a completely different prospect to what City face and league winning teams of past seasons. The reason they raise their game is because outside of Liverpool no one wants us to win the league. Apparently it’s because of the arrogance of our fans. I would like nothing more than to win the league this season so we can get the monkey off our back. But if we do I will be gracious in victory as I am in defeat.

27.) 21 Apr 2019 10:22:31
No they're not Salah, we're probably pissing them off that they've had to fight so hard to win this title and may end up not winning it, but scared of us. Don't talk nonsense. Is it any wonder why we are the most hated team in the league.

28.) 21 Apr 2019 10:25:52
Thank you very much Rome, happy Easter to you and yours too mate. Hahaha don't worry about it, I'm a miserable old bugger at times too, we're only human but like you say, we all want the best for the club, it's all a journey and we all have our opinions. Just because I have my opinions doesn't make me right or you wrong. It's always good to get into a discussion without people getting daft about things. You take care mate.



17 Apr 2019 17:29:02
AS is reporting that Salah has asked to be sold this summer. is there any truth to this? it also claims that he's had a "long standing feud" with Klopp. I can't believe this is true.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any issues between the coach and Salah. The sustained issue has been his "agent", Ramy Abbas Issa, his attempts to get Real Madrid interested (at a price that had him laughed out of Madrid), has tried to get Juventus interested, has caused a major issue with the Egyptian FA and has been the cause of an investigation in to another matter that we don't need to discuss. The only I can think of with Klopp is more of an issue with the club, and there is little point in opening that up.}

1.) 17 Apr 2019 19:37:09
Please don't mind me asking. Can you please elaborate what's the issue between Klopp and the club? If it is tapping up of players, I totally agree, he needs to stop for the club's sake.

{Ed002's Note - There is no issue between Klopp and the club - it is between Salah/his agent and the club and not Klopp.

The club obviously has told Klopp the tapping up must stop, and although he was caught again last year and the club bailed him out financially yet again - it seems to have now stopped

2.) 17 Apr 2019 19:58:57
Do you think he’s just fed up with Blackpool, could be who knows.

3.) 17 Apr 2019 23:20:51
Thank you for the response Ed.

4.) 17 Apr 2019 23:31:58
Ed02, what does Salah's agent and his pathetic antics have to do with Klopp's tapping up issue of last year that has already been litigated (I think), exactly? Cheers, man!

{Ed002's Note - What is your problem? What do you mean by "litigated"? Is it best not to ignore things you don't understand?}

5.) 18 Apr 2019 14:55:13
Ed02 mate, Do you think, in your heart of hearts that salah A, wants to move. And B, will he move?

Personally i can't see our big players wanting to move now. We are one of the big five now.

Man city.

{Ed002's Note - There is no secret about him wanting to join Madrid. As for the "big 5", that is of course a joke.}

6.) 18 Apr 2019 17:52:07
Ed, calm down man. By litigated I meant to say, settled.

{Ed002's Note - Why do you make such embarrassing staements. I suspect you have no idea about what has gone on and should just stop with these dumb posts.}

On the subject of Liverpool being seen as a stepping stone, that may be true for some. I think that TAA, Robertson, Henderson and possibly Firminho and Gomez are the only ones who don't view Liverpool that way. Regarding Salah, I don't see him leaving this summer, but if he does, thank you very much and we move on. Ed 01 has said before that Paisley was ruthless, how do you all think he would handle this situation? I know, different times, but it's interesting. If he knew that an agent was actively shopping a player, I wonder how he would have handled that.

Just have to agree to disagree on this one. Again, maybe I'm too old fashioned, but it is an honour to be in the match regardless of how we got there. Ed02 is 100% correct on this in my view.

So what Ed025, we're playing in it. It is an honour to be playing in the match. I'm sure that if Everton were in the same position you would be extemely happy and proud. I would be for you as well. Any club should view playing in this match as an honour regardless of how they made it.
