Don't they only bring out a new shirt every 2 years though? Wish I could get some of our older shirts that cheap!

That's almost effigy value.

But still not worth the overbearing guilt you should feel from buying it.

Si should get that QVC presenter to do a pitch, on the various uses for a Liverpool top. "This multi purpose item is great value at £5, we have some defects,you can unfortunately get names on the shirts like Downing and Carroll for -£2. It's uses are almost without beginning, but embellish me, I'm selling shit on TV here. Why not use it as a dishcloth, an animal faeces collection device, a disguise to help infiltrate the BNP and other far right groups. Why not fill it and use it as a punchbag, use it as symbolic sign of hatred for someone or something, use it as a portable toilet, use as a projectile.."

To be fair, it's probably that cheap as LFC are switching kit manufacturers next season. Switching to Warrior in a £150m British record deal. I think the shirt deal is only second to Barcelona's. Not bad for a #hugeclub. ;-)

I live in New England.

Warrior is a brand worn by hockey players and 'Lax Bros', and that's not a good thing. They've never made a football kit before, and the brand is associated with kids who wear boat shoes, midcalve socks, pink shorts, bibs with lacrosse team names, and have stupid long hair.

As I say I'm not too hopeful. :-(

Not bought a shirt for a good few seasons, although I did get my free black one last year for opening an account with 188bet.

If Warrior want to break into the footy kit market they're going to have to make it quite a special kit to get others interested. I guess time will tell.

To be fair I've tried their lacrosse shirts and they are very good.  Top class for the sport.
But its a lot different than football kits thats for sure.

Not Blukipper but just as amusing. There arguing with each other blaming Kenwright. Saying how it doesn't matter because it was on pens so it doesn't count. Laughing at us because they think we are having a parade for the League Cup, which where not, but they fucking would. Oh and they managed to find pictures of a beaten up Cardiff fan, which was probably just one bad incident on a very good day. But the usual bile still comes out.

it's not really going to be £150m though is it?  don't your yank owners also own Warrior?

it'll say £150m on the tin, but it'll be to right off some form of tax loss and that money won't actually physically move between the companies"

Liverpool's Carling Cup win will encourage the interest of top players looking to join the club in the summer, according to Damien Comolli.

The Reds beat Cardiff in a penalty shoot-out on Sunday to lift their first piece of silverware in six years and guarantee a place in the UEFA Europa League next season.

Director of football Comolli believes that success was a crucial step in the "project" at Anfield as the club continues its turnaround following John Henry's takeover in 2010.

And the Reds chief claims Liverpool's ongoing revival under Kenny Dalglish has already caught the eye of several high-profile players from around Europe.

"We already know that there are big players who want to join us next summer because they believe in the project," Comolli told Sky Sports.

"Everybody in Europe knows what Liverpool football club are trying to do.

"Obviously the fact that we're back playing in Europe and we've won the trophy, it's all positive things.

"There's a very positive vibe around the club around Europe. A lot players I know are very interested about joining the project because it's a very interesting project

"Shades of 2001 for sure....Well fucking in...whats the bets on getting to the FA Cup Final, getting outplayed for 80 mins then nicking it at the death...?" - Must have got back from Wembley pretty quick?

Thing is none of these people went to Wembley. They're not even armchair supports, they're laptop supporters.

Was going to give my opinion on the match yesterday but couldn't in the match thread due to there being a problem with this website yesterday afternoon.  So I'll stick it on here now.

I honestly thought you'd give us a tougher game than that, I really did.  But as most of you were saying the team selection probably didn't help with Moyes having one eye on the cup.  Maybe with being 10 years at the club he's thinking that he needs something to show for it, and the FA Cup is the only chance of doing that this season.  I wouldn't have liked his post match comments if I was an Evertonian but I guess he's being a realist.  Who else would rather have 3pts than 2? I certainly would, although losing a derby isn't ideal.  But his comments did remind me of some of the shite that Hodgson use to come out with.

Liverpool seemed to want it more and went at Everton from the first whistle.  We closed down and harried the Everton players.  I have to say though, it cerrtainly wasn't the Everton I watched against Tottenham on Saturday evening but again that's probably a lot down to the six changes made.  We weren't the Liverpool that played at Sunderland the Saturday before either.  I just hope we can put that performance in every week and not just for our biggest rivals.

Time's a healer.  And no doubt if Moyes gamble comes off and you're through to the semi's of the FA Cup, the derby game will be a distant memory.  Good luck lads, here's to playing you a third time.....at Wembley for the final...and for us to give you a tin-hatting in terms of results!  ;)

In fact they have been so successful they got beat by QPR in mid week because they beat Cardiff a few weeks ago.

The money they have spent and the big home coming of the 'King' ( lolol) makes this more amusing than normal. If we finish above them and knock them out of the cup it would probably be Roy's fault or bloody Cardiff.

I dont think its the fact that it was handball that got it disallowed. Caldwell was on the line and was set to clear it and was suddenly on his back on the floor. Suarez pushed him over blatenly. The ball just happened to hit his arm on the way in but it didnt affect where it was going much.

Looks like handball to me. To be fair, all he had to do was draw his arms back and it would have gone in anyway off his chest. But for some reason he seems to whack them down at the ball as it is rebounding from his chest.

Unlucky but he's only got himself to blame. I guess cheating is so ingrained in him that he attempts to cheat even when he doesn't have to.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/liverpool/9166045/Liverpools-latest-disappointment-at-home-to-Wigan-highlights-Anfields-blindness-to-modern-failings.html (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/liverpool/9166045/Liverpools-latest-disappointment-at-home-to-Wigan-highlights-Anfields-blindness-to-modern-failings.html)

A once grand ballroom that fell into disrepair, it was a location where ladies of a certain vintage relived their golden days, throwing on the lipstick for one more shot at rapture alongside a fresh generation. Every now and again they would strike lucky too, as visitors in awe of the sheer novelty value of the 'grab a granny nights’ succumbed to its particular charms.

In so many ways, Liverpool Football Club have something in common with the ladies of The Grafton.

They are like an old lush, sat in the corner telling the world how attractive and marvellous they are, utterly affronted when anyone blind to their natural beauty suggests otherwise. Friends, lovers and acquaintances nod enthusiastically each time the club attest to their own greatness, but neutrals and rivals think their better days have long since passed.

Every so often the reminders are more potent. A magical one-night stand in Europe, or (as this season’s Carling Cup final demonstrated) an occasional trophy, but the most serious threat to Liverpool’s enduring significance is not the criticism or pity of onlookers, it is their own lack of self-awareness.

Defeat at home to a bottom-three side such as Wigan Athletic is still looked upon at Anfield as a shock, a performance which belies form or tradition. Why?

Wigan have not lost to Liverpool for three years. They are one of 10 teams to have left Anfield this season enthused by their opponents’ inability to win at home. Shaun Maloney’s penalty and Gary Caldwell’s 64th-minute winner condemned Liverpool to their worst Anfield run since relegation in 1953.

In applauding his own side’s “historic” win, Wigan manager Roberto Martinez generously suggested Anfield remains a special, iconic football venue. That view is based increasingly on the place’s sense of the past. Liverpool might as well be playing in their museum.

Walk around Old Trafford, the Etihad Arena or the Emirates on matchday. Pause, soak in the scale of the view and keep convincing yourself Anfield does not look like the remnant of another era. One day you will wake up and those Malaysian fans you keep fluttering your eyelids at will be wearing City scarves.

Look at the league table for the last 22 years and ask how many genuine title challenges there have been. Two? Three perhaps?

Thoroughly examine why the club have fallen from their lofty perch. It is not because they have been pushed off by others, been victims of some bizarre FA or Sir Alex Ferguson-led conspiracy, been sidelined by high finance or have suffered two decades of bad luck.

It is because successive managers have wasted millions on inadequate players. Those still inaccurately perceived as their closest rivals (a 28-point gap to United is a loose definition of 'close’) have used their resources infinitely better. When a £35 million striker and a £20 million midfielder turn out to be appalling, the simplistic demand is for another cheque to be signed. Supporters work out the profits from sales, subtract the fees from purchases and use this an excuse for buying pap. It is desperately feeble.

The other option is another managerial change and the recycling of mitigating factors for 12 more months of rebuilding. That has not worked much, either.

Kenny Dalglish is destined to get one more chance next season regardless of the debate about whether he should.

Not because it has been a fantastic season (it clearly has not), not because the league table tells fibs (it does not) and not because his signings are good enough (they certainly are not).

He will get another season because there is no appetite to write him off after one trophy winning campaign, which could still end with the FA Cup.

When Rafael Benitez came seventh and Roy Hodgson flirted with a relegation scrap, you could call anyone at Liverpool and aside from a handful of sycophants, 90 per cent of employees from the board down to the secretaries did not just crave change, they lobbied for it.

The fundamental difference between then and now is the same enquiries provoke the opposite view. Dalglish is not just liked, or respected. He is adored and trusted. Liverpool were booed off on Saturday, but Dalglish’s name was still sung (although not as much as it was when he still a club ambassador).

For the club’s American owners, the challenge is brutal. Chief among them is convincing their fan base to share in a communal period of self-revelation.

“Slow and steady progress,” is their mantra. The emphasis is on slow.

They may also have to add the word 'agonising’. Expecting them to repair two decades of fierce cultural resistance to any view suggesting the Liverpool way is no longer the correct one will take courage and a willingness to flirt with unpopularity to do what they believe is essential and right.

“There’s a word we have been using for the last 12 months,” managing director Ian Ayre said last week.

“Unity.”

That is all well and good, but here is another one the club better get used to if they do not accept, confront and deal more urgently with the problem of their current place in English football. Irrelevance.

What about other football disasters then? Why are games still played on those dates even by those teams who had suffered the disaster?

People sadly die all the time from things far worse.

Don't get me wrong, I signed the petition for the disclosure of reports because I felt that those who lost a loved one deserve to know. And I agree that respect has to be paid for the dead. What I don't see is why is it wrong to pay respect with playing a football match? We do it all the time, why is this any different from when we pay respect to those fallen in the wars?

I'd indeed argue that playing on that day would not only be respectful and appropiate, but I can't even imagine a more appropiate way of paying respect than with an all-Merseyside semi-final in Wembley.

No. l think it may be Liverpool fans who are missing the point Alan Davies has made.

Rangers play despite the old firm tragedy in 71, Utd play despite the Munich disaster, Juventus play on the anniversary of Heysel, what about the 70 odd people killed somewhere earlier this year? Will they refuse to play on that date next year?

With regard to Davies and his comments, I agree in the main. But I think the issues with regard to the media, meant that people didn't move on in the same way as with other tragedies.

I suspect that the memorial and refusal to play on the day will change, when the situation would hinder Liverpool sufficiently. But it still seems that the FA are happy to work around their stance, to the detriment of others.

This is what I think. It's really difficult to have sympathy for the fans when they have conveniently forgotten their part in Heysal. I get the feeling that for most Liverpool fans, Hillsborough is not about those that lost loved ones but is yet another tool to be used to make themselves feel special and hard done by.

Horrible bastards!

I agree. I once asked a Liverpool fan (who I met at uni and was from Scotland...) who Liverpool where playing at Hillsborough that day. Not a clue but it didn't stop him getting all pissy about it. Of course the families deserve our respect and that's why I'll respect the silence but a lot of their fans don't know a lot about it and just use it as a device and you've said.

FOOTBALL
Everton manager David Moyes has welcomed the Football Association's decision, as reporteded by the Liverpool Echo, to stage a period of silence ahead of the FA Cup semi-finals this weekend

"It was a horrendous disaster which everyone was shocked by and I am sure everyone at Everton will pass on their sympathies and on the day will give everyone who lost family members the right dignity and pay tribute to them," he said.

I think it's a typical Liverpool example of "poor us" unfortunately.

Of course people understand the pain that Hillsborough brought, but as said, many other dates have significance to other clubs and they get on with it. Do Bradford never play on the anniversary of the Valley Parade fire?

It's unfortunate coincidence that the 15th falls on the same weekend that Liverpool are in the semi. I can't help think that if Chelsea were the team with a terrible anniversary and Liverpool had a CL semi on the Wednesday they would have shouted from the roof tops about a 6pm KO on the Sunday and done nothing to help Chelsea.

I think the perfect mark of respect would be for the two clubs of Merseyside to have a minutes silence at 3.06pm then play the game after that. That for me would be the perfect tribute to those who died.

"Last September Comolli said he was not looking for new players as he believed Liverpool's squad was "complete".

Following Comolli's departure on Thursday, Dalglish said: "He has been really helpful in every transfer target that we've gone for.

"Everyone who has come into the club since Damien has been here was of my choice."

I'd have though given his recent form he'd have used Comolli as a scapegoat blaming him for the shite purchases. Maybe he does have some integrity left afterall.

You're not the only football team in history to have suffered a terrible disaster but you're the only one who believe this is best remembered by not playing.

Something the Rotterdam club is all too aware of.
There have been talks to get this happening next season.
The is only one snag, Kuyt earns 5m at the other side of the park.
Something the cash strikken Feyenoord cannot possibly afford.

If we asked to keep that date aside in respect of the dead, and the FA agreed to it, what's the big deal?  Seriously, it's one day?  If the other clubs who have experienced a tragedy in their history and chose not to honour their dead by not playing on a certain date, then that's up to them.  But if they chose to not play on a certain date I really wouldn't have a problem with it, out of respect and common decency.

It's one day.  The anniversary just so happened to fall on a weekend this year which affected the football fixture list.  Next year it's on a Monday so you won't hear anything about it.  The year after, Tuesday, so you won't hear anything about it again.  The year after, probably nothing again, etc, etc...until the 15th April falls on a weekend.  In the grand scheme of things it really isn't a big deal.  Is it???

Most people probably didn't even know that Liverpool kept that date aside out of respect for those that died, yet now they're outraged because we're seen to be getting 'special' treatment.

No, it's no big deal. But if you met a guy who had lost a loved one 23 years ago, and the guy was still wearing black and frown all the time, you'd go "god, he's a bit weird, he may need help", wouldn't you. You probably wouldn't say it but you'd think it.

Now add to that a bunch of kids who were born after the disaster, trying desperately to fit in and show off their non-existent grief, and you can see why it pisses off virtually everyone.

As much as I dislike them 25,074 tickets allocated for the final is a disgrace in a 90.000 seat stadium.

I know it's the same for everyone each year but it really is a kick in the teeth to the real fans of a football club, be it us, the RS, Chelsea or any other club that regularly gets 30,000 fans at a game. Especially when the cameras frequently go around the ground showing celebrity "fans" in their comfy seats.

Post by: Major Clanger on April 19, 2012, 03:43:13 AM
I think some of this reduced allocation is due to the fact that every team who enters the competition gets (at least) 2 tickets for the final, including the very early preliminary rounds

obviously a bigger chunk is down to sponsors etc, but this is still a pretty reasonable amount and quite a nice gesture by The FA - although these tickets shouldn't be taken out of the club's involved allocations

And shouldn't end up on ebay, as they always do.

A friend of mine in Leeds who helps run a Junior league offered me a final ticket the Wednesday before the Semis. Obviously I have not taken him up on the deal now.
He won a draw run by the Yorkshire F.A or something or other. So had 2 x £65 tickets.

Nothing is for definite. That's all I'm saying.

You simply don't have the finances to compete with Utd, City and Chelsea. You might be able to compete with Arsenal and Spurs at a push. The money you lot spend, you should be above Newcastle and us. That's down to your manager or whoever buys your players these days.

And then there's another mate who had great joy in saying that "Man Utd on Channel 5 on Thursdays" after they were knocked out of the CL. Yet suddenly the Europa is important when they want it to be.

Then there's the one's that suddenly think the Carling Cup is a massive trophy after calling it the Mickey Mouse cup for years.

Haven't won a trophy? I think you will find that Everton (not me personally) have won plenty.

To be honest, I don't think you're capable of understanding my implied point. But I'll try to explain in simple terms. Of course, winning the Carling Cup is a good thing. But it's a good thing in terms that it's a bonus cup for about 10+ clubs. None of these big clubs start the season thinking, 'shit, we better go for the Carling this year'. It's a cup that many would probably rather not even enter. But when they get to the quarters, it suddenly becomes a bit more significant. But even then, it's less significant than league form or form in Europe.

Personally, I would like Everton to win it simply because it's time to win something. But if we do win it next season, it won't really figure in how I define the club. It will still just be a Micky Mouse cup that we managed to win.

I am sure any Liverpool fan who looks at this season logically will not be really happy with it.

Season started with huge expectation for them, the manager the fans wanted, over £100 million spent to bolster a squad that finished last season in good form. The owners making a statement to the press that they expected to finish top 4.........

At the start of the season Liverpool were well up there - but since Christmas they have been very poor - I saw a table on Sky recently and in the 18 league games they played since Christmas, their form had them 3rd from bottom......... few weeks ago they were 10 / 12 points clear of Everton?

Would Liverpool fans swap 3rd place finish this season for Carling Cup 3rd round defeat ? They say not, but I think the owners would - for a club that has won 19 league titles and 5 European titles + many other odds and sods, to be "content" winning the Carling Cup in a penalty shoot out against a Championship team is actually quite desperate.

We can all fall back on days gone by in an argument, but most fans really want success today.

Over the past few seasons we've lost our most influential players for anything up to 9 months.

Yak, Arteta and a fully on song, turning up in big games, consistent, Fellaini. We still managed to get results and finish 5th and 6th in the league.

Once you become a selling club it's hard to buck that trend. As the neighbours are finding out but are to blinded by a deluded sense of self-entitlement to see it.

This years Champions League semis had about 6 ex Liverpool players in it (I think), all moved on to bigger and better things. That is a prime example of a selling club.

The fact is, Liverpool have invested hundreds of millions over the past 5-seasons. It doesn't matter that you have also recouped money. For a spend of the magnitude made, you would expect Liverpool to be a top-4 team. Yet you are not even close to that, and I doubt you have the players to get you close to that.

Also, you are the third highest spenders net in the past 5-seasons. Only City and Chelsea have spent more than Liverpool. United are down at 8th, Everton at 15th and Arsenal at 20th.

Just admit you've gone backwards and that the fault lies with poor transfers and crap managers, not with a lack of ability to compete financially.

Once you become a selling club it's hard to buck that trend. As the neighbours are finding out but are to blinded by a deluded sense of self-entitlement to see it.

This years Champions League semis had about 6 ex Liverpool players in it (I think), all moved on to bigger and better things. That is a prime example of a selling club.

Over the past few seasons we've lost our most influential players for anything up to 9 months.

Yak, Arteta and a fully on song, turning up in big games, consistent, Fellaini. We still managed to get results and finish 5th and 6th in the league.

You lot have lost a player who 2 seasons ago most Liverpool fans were calling all the cunts under the sun about how shite he was performing.

Man up and admit you've gone backwards in the last couple of years.

It's not even a slight decline. It's massive. l think you know that as well though, no matter how you protest.



Only once in those last few seasons you've finished 5th. Looking at your league finishes it's not only us going backwards.

We've gone from regular Europa League/UEFA cup to 2 places in the league down from that.

You've gone from Champions League winners, regular top 4 finishes and even pushing for the title down to mid table with just the cup none of the other big teams seem to really care about winning.

Everton league finishes last 3 seasons including the current one:

09/10: 8th. 10/11: 7th. 11/12: 7th (if we beat Newcastle).

Liverpool league finishes last 3 seasons including the current one:

09/10: 7th. 10/11: 6th. 11/12: 8th (if you get beat by Chelsea, possibly 9th and maybe even as low as 10th if Swansea beat you, and WBA beat Arsenal).

Who's going backwards, did you say? We're on course to match last season's finish, after spending a faction of the money brought in by selling Yakubu, Beckford, Arteta, Saha and Bily.

You, on the other hand, will definitely finish lower than last season, despite having spent tons of money under Dalglish and Commoli. I can understand your bitterness and delusion, but you really need to stop this revisionist and alternate reality bollocks. Get a grip lad.

I really hope you don't go into business Nebs. Gross spend is all well and good but it's net spend that really matters. Of course it matters how much we've had to sell/recoup. If we had an equal squad to Spurs for example but had to sell to invest money in new players, but Spurs didn't, then it would be natural to assume that Spurs would have the better squad. Their net spend would be greater than ours and you'd have to say therefore that their squad would be better in quality. Whereas gross spend would be the same.

It's down to piss-poor ownership and financial management. Do you really think we weren't aware of that until you told us? That all those people shouting "Kenwright out" just don't like his face?

Look, it's simple. We have no money but have a manager who makes us perform reasonably well. You've got tons of money and have got a complete fuckwit as a manager. Yes, he may have been a good manager 20 years ago but times have moved on and he hasn't. Every single time he gives an interview, he demonstrates that fact.

Now, to be honest with you, most of us are perfectly happy with your current situation, so long as you continue to be a ship of fools, we have a constant source of hilarity to brighten us up a bit amidst our fairly bleak financial prospects. (Not by much, mind you, it's not much fun watching Kenny defend racist behaviour or losing his marbles in a post-match interview when we have to sell players just to pay the banks off.)

But I personally thought you were a level-headed lad who deserved to be treated with respect, and also someone who realises how woefully your team is performing (as many of the kopites I know do).

If you're happy with your delusions, I'm not going to be the one to rob you of them. Hail King Kenny, the greatest manager the world has ever seen! Down with the Manc/FA conspiracy and of course the woodwortk! This time next year you'll be champions, I'm sure.

I really am not selective in what I quote.  I quoted you about saying it does not matter what you recoup (and the rest of the paragraph).  When in fact it does.  A lot.  Net spend is the figure most people are interested in (certainly if you're a business man), yet you can't work out net transfer spend without knowing what you also recouped/sold.  So it is quite important that you know what you recoup, despite you saying otherwise.

And I said I was using Spurs as an example.  An example. Hence that's why I also said about both ourselves and Spurs starting out with equal squads when infact this isn't the case.  Again, it was an example.

I know about the figures being banded about regarding what position we are in terms of the biggest spenders (net and gross), but my original point was, where are people getting this idea that we have spent £100m+ to strengthen our squad this season when it is nowhere near.

What's so funny about this.  Lucas has become a major force in the Liverpool team so we are bound to miss him.

He was Liverpools Player of the Season last season.

He was the top tackler in all 5 of Europes top divisions last season.

Up until he was injured in November he was Liverpool's top tackler.  After 33 games, still no Liverpool player had surpassed his number of tackles stat.

Up until Lucas was injured this season, we played competitive 17 games. We won 10 of these, drawn 5 and lost 2. This is on the back of an impressive second half of the last season when Kenny took over.  Now I'm by no means saying that this is all down to Lucas missing that we've had a poor second half of the season, but all the above point to the fact you are going to miss a player of Lucas's quality.

It's certainly not to be laughed at.

If you've got any evidence that I've posted anything 'delusional' then please feel free to point this out.

I find it quite comical that Lucas was seen as a bumbling idiot a couple of season ago, and now he is being lauded as key to Liverpool. But personally speaking I have no issue with him. So I'm glad that he's gone from liability in a club that perceived itself as a CL club, to 'player of the season' in a mid-table club.

Often this happens, you can get a player that just can't cut it at a team that is considered from the upper echelons, but becomes ace when he steps down to a mid-table team. Luckily for Lucas, he was able to make that transition without moving club! lol!

I find it quite comical that Lucas was seen as a bumbling idiot a couple of season ago, and now he is being lauded as key to Liverpool. But personally speaking I have no issue with him. So I'm glad that he's gone from liability in a club that perceived itself as a CL club, to 'player of the season' in a mid-table club.

Often this happens, you can get a player that just can't cut it at a team that is considered from the upper echelons, but becomes ace when he steps down to a mid-table team. Luckily for Lucas, he was able to make that transition without moving club! lol!


I find it quite comical that you 'lol'd at me when I said that we're missing Lucas and it's no coincidence that our results have suffered without him being in the team, to him now being an 'ace' in a 'mid-table team'.

Very contradictory.

Does this mean BWS thinks that Liverpool ARE a mid-table team or that Lucas is a star player?

The lad is a little bit simple, but he appears to think that when Lucas is playing, Liverpool are invincible, and will win the World Cup.

Don't worry Big Nev, I was using Nebs words.

It was you nebs that laughed at me for suggesting we're missing Lucas but then go on to say he's the 'ace' in a 'mid-table' club.

You're a Liverpool fan on an Everton site, and yet you seem to expect people to treat your opinions seriously. What is more, you come across as slightly deluded and seem incapable of seeing Liverpool through non-partisan eyes (your recent defences of Dalglish and the Suarez episode were laughable). If you want everyone to kiss your ass, you're in the wrong place.

No problems with you being here, though. Just don't expect not to have the piss taken. The same would happen to me if I was posting on the Laugh at Everton thread at RAWK.

Ideally they'd go for someone with a bit of experience in English football and with some success at winning trophies as they'll need to burst out of the traps as soon as the new season starts, or else the fans will be on their back.

possible relegation fight if they bring in untried manager in the prem

they need a pepe or a jose and no chance of getting either of those

bring it on

They're not going to be in a delegation fight whoever they appoint.

It's not as though Dalglish was dragging them through games through his managerial excellence.

You don't need to hate someone just because they go to Liverpool. I'm sure he'd actually gain a bit of respect. He'd bring a bit class and dignity to the club, something that has been sadly lacking in recent times.

True but I think there'd be a few things about him that suddenly seem different.

Like his insistence during Wigan's annual 8 game losing streak, or when they've lost about 7-0 that they're actually playing very well and have just been unlucky.

Sound familiar to a senile former manager?!

A lot on RAWK are already slagging him off.

In saying that, it is a bit of a gamble. I kinda think he is a good manager, but he's only been at Wigan and Swansea, so this will be a big step up for him. Be interesting to see how it pans out if he gets the job.

I'd guess that Rodgers realised that he was going to be down the list of about 8 managers that they are going to speak to; or at least try. Therefore it wouldn't be great for him if he said he'd speak to them only for them to pick someone else.

It really is a bizarre way they're going about this.

Unless more people turn it down, like Rodgers, then they're going to have upset about 6 clubs whose managers they speak to but don't appoint.

Don't really get the fuss about Martinez. It's the same short sightedness that got Carroll in the England squad. Just a few of months ago Martinez had Wigan solidly in the relegation zone and Whelan complaining about his team selection.

Plus I don't really get the reputation he has for playing good football. They played some really dire football for the majority of the season.

Whoever is the next manager though they better get a good start otherwise the knives will be out from the fans first and then in all likelihood from the owners.

The soap opera that is Liverpool is the gift that just keeps on giving.

The latest is the dumping of an LFC website contributor and Anfield press-box ticket holder, Alan Kayll - dumped because he publicly declared he was a BNP supporter and had voted for them the last 3 years. In today's Daily Mail:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2146613/Charles-Sale-Website-race-row-caps-Liverpools-week.html (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2146613/Charles-Sale-Website-race-row-caps-Liverpools-week.html)

Quote
The baffling way Fenway Sports Group are running Liverpool is further demonstrated by a website writer - hired by the American owners - claiming to be a supporter of the British National Party.

Merseysider Alan Kayll, who writes about Liverpool for FSG's New England Sports Network and has had close contact with chairman Tom Werner, proclaimed his backing for the BNP on online fans forum The Liverpool Way.
Kayll, who signs in as atk, stated: 'I have voted BNP for the past three years. I could not care less if people call me a racist.'
Kayll's connections with the BNP will cause acute embarrassment to the club, especially in the wake of the Luis Suarez racism debacle.

And Liverpool director of communications Jen Chang scored a PR own goal before starting in the job with his tweet last December that Patrice Evra, the victim of Suarez's racist abuse, should have been charged by the FA as well.
It is understood Kayll has already been told to stop using Twitter after criticising Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre. Kayll also had his racist remarks removed from The Liverpool Way, but responses to his views were kept on the site.
On being informed last night of Kayll's BNP leaning, Liverpool terminated their association with him and were taking all articles with his byline off the NESN website.
The club said he was an unpaid contributor, although given a seat in the Anfield press box.

The follow up to this is the release of the Spirit of Shankly statement, urging Henry to consult the fans.

Quote
Dear Mr Werner, Mr Henry and Mr Ayre


We are writing to you as we are concerned about the current situation that our football club finds itself in. It is a time of worry for supporters, not just because of the huge changes and the transformation that is happening in such a short time frame but the manner in which it is happening.

It may be that yourselves and the board of Liverpool Football Club have a vision you are working towards. It may be that you have implemented a strategy to deliver that vision and decisions are being made to work towards this. However, from the outside where supporters find themselves once again, it looks like a football club in disarray. Confusion and chaos seems to reign and no one is coming out of this with much credit, particularly the football club’s image and brand.

We need clear and pro-active communication, a confident message about the club’s plans that breeds confidence amongst supporters that we are moving in the right direction. Instead, we have silence and a lack of information or understanding on decisions being made.

Today we find ourselves with key positions at the football club vacant. Most notably, the position of Manager and the lack of a footballing man on the board. There has been much speculation, along with emails sent to supporters groups, on who is providing advice to yourselves. It may well be the case that this is speculation; however, it is understandable that there is speculation given the lack of clarity and information on who is deciding on matters, why and the timing of them.


We have seen both Damien Comolli and Kenny Dalglish removed from their positions, and the search for replacements is still ongoing. We do know that conversations have been held with individuals mentioned in today's rumours about the football staff and those who have held these positions.

Mr Ayre has said today:

"I can tell you categorically that Alan Kayll and Paul Tompkins have had no input on the manager or anything else for that matter. I've seen a lot of that stuff being suggested and it's nonsense."

This is encouraging as it is the firm belief of Spirit Of Shankly that footballing decisions should be made by footballing men who are appropriately qualified. We know all too well of the mistakes that follow if this simple mantra is not adhered to.

Are suitably qualified individuals making these decisions?

Today, Ian Ayre gave an interview, talking about the removal of Kenny Dalglish as manager, in which he stated that “Winning the FA Cup wouldn’t have made any difference – it was never about an individual result. It was always about taking a review of the season in full."


As supporters, we have always believed in the quote from Bill Shankly that “Liverpool Football club exists not to make money, it exists to win trophies and be a source of pride for its supporters. It serves no other purpose.”.


To supporters, this is of massive importance. We know that success in football requires money. However, the quote from Ian Ayre would lead us to believe that our focus is no longer on winning trophies but making money. In a season that has seen us end with one trophy out of the three available and narrowly miss out on a second, it is somewhat disrespectful to suggest to supporters that winning another trophy would not be good enough. It is also contradictory to what Ian Ayre himself said earlier in the month: “Anyone who was at the Carling Cup final or the semi-final against Everton will tell you that’s what being a Liverpool fan is all about. It might not have the biggest prize money or the biggest status, but it’s fantastic. You go to watch a football team every week because you want them to be successful and win things. John and Tom will be there on Saturday. That’s why you buy sports teams – to watch them compete for trophies”. Ian Ayre, May 2012.

Is it now the strategy of Liverpool FC to place greater importance upon generating revenues above winning trophies?

Today, communication and leadership is vital. As supporters we have seen all too clearly what a lack of communication from absentee owners leads to. There has been very limited dialogue through the Supporters Committee which is still in its infancy, but this has been mainly used by the club to get messages out, rather than the dialogue promised with supporters at the time of your takeover. At a time when a clear message is needed, it is somewhat embarrassing for supporters and the football club to see Twitter messages on who supporters think should be the next manager. We are Liverpool FC. We are better than that.

Ultimately, supporters remain in the dark once again about the plans for this football club moving forward. We find ourselves experiencing déjà vu, where boardroom decisions lead to more questions than they answer. If we all want to pull in the same direction, transparency is needed. As supporters we often offer blind devotion to our football team. Due to our history, we do not afford the same luxury to the football club. It is equally as important for you to trust in supporters, so that we can work together for the betterment of the football club, as it is for us to trust in you.

We ask that you speak with supporters – engage with a true representative cross section of supporters and work with supporters to provide solutions to our current problems. This will enable communication with supporters to take place in an open and accountable manner.


Hopefully hear from you soon.

Spirit Of Shankly

You could add the previous regime at Liverpool to Lerner as well. And the debt that the Glazers have brought to Man Utd, while still bringing success, their debt has gone up in the last 9 months. Yet Montanatoffeefan got on his horse because I dared to question American sports club owners because they've had mixed success.

I think they need to realise that running a Premier League club is completely different from an American sports franchise. As you say, they can provide the backing but they really need to get people in place that know what they are doing.

Liverpool must be getting fed up with American knights in shiny armour coming along and making a mess of things?

Find it funny how Martinez seemingly had his interview a few days ago and since then they've approached more managers (who have rebuffed them), and only now is he called back for a second interview and is ironically the 'preferred' choice. Eh, 1st out of 1 isn't bad is it?

Only the big clubs get the big managers nowadays. Unfortunately the perception is that liverpool aren't a big club at the moment.

The right thing for them to do is find their own Davie Moyes. Their fans are far too short sighted to see this though and are more bothered about 'keeping up with the Joneses' so to speak. Unfortunatley the Joneses all play in the Champions league.

They need to rebuild from the bottom up and back a young talented up and coming manager who will do so.

Is Martinez the right guy? dunno. Brendan Rogers would have been perfect.

Love how Henry is parachuting all his mates into jobs at the club. You have to wonder how much knowledge some of these people have of football in this country, and how much of this is 'jobs for the boys' rather than the best people for the job.

Gordon Taylor wants players found guilty of racist abuse to be sacked

Racist abuse should be a sackable offence for players in England next season, says Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) chief Gordon Taylor.

He is pushing for changes to be made to every Premier League and Football League player's contract.

The PFA will present the plan to the Professional Football Negotiating and Consultative Committee.

Continue reading the main story
“If any player is found guilty of racist abuse, the club and the player need to be aware that could be a solid reason for terminating the contract.


Gordon Taylor
 
Players' chief
 "I don't see a problem with that being introduced," said Taylor, who is chief executive of the PFA.

The 2011-12 Premier League campaign was marred by two high profile cases, involving Luis Suarez and John Terry.

Liverpool striker Suarez was banned for eight matches for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra during a Premier League match at Anfield on 15 October.

And Chelsea captain Terry will go on trial in July after he pleaded not guilty to racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand during a match on 23 October.

Speaking about the proposal, Taylor added: "It just highlights the point in the standard players' contract.

"It would say that racist abuse, if found guilty, will be classed as gross misconduct and a reason to terminate a contract.

"I feel it's important to highlight it, bearing in mind what has happened, and not mess about with it and not afford for anybody to be ambiguous about what the consequences are.

"I'm not saying it's ambiguous [now]. But just to really put it in there means there is no misunderstanding on how serious we take it.

"If any player is found guilty of racist abuse, the club and the player need to be aware that could be a solid reason for terminating the contract."

I've mentioned it in another thread (or maybe even this one earlier on!) that there will be things that he does now that you don't find annoying that if he goes there you'd suddenly notice.

The most obvious one that springs to mind would be his constant statements of how well they've played whether they've just been stuffed 9-0 or they haven't won a game for 3 months.

That looks like him trying to keep spirits up at Wigan, whereas he'd become a delusional twat if he said them at L'pool.

I think he is haggling over control, but I strongly suspect he will accept eventually. He won't get as much power as he does at Wigan, but as you said I'm not sure he will get offered many better roles if he turned this down.

I can't see him being welcomed that enthusiastically, so he would need a good start.

If a club can be judged on the calibre of manager they are able to attract,the fact that Liverpool were left with a choice of Brendan Rogers or Roberto Martinez to replace Kenny Dalglish is perhaps the most telling indication yet of their decline,Eight summers ago it was between Rafa Benitez who had just won La liga and uefa cup with Valencia and Jose Mourinho  who had lifted Chamions league and Portuguese title with Porto,this once great club is now reduced to picking managers whos achievement is keeping their clubs in the very division that Liverpool once harboured hopes of winning

It does if he works out.

It's hard to tell as there is little evidence of FSG's record of managerial appointments.

So far they've gone with the populist choice of "the king" and current media favourite Rodgers.

opening paragraph of article in The Times today
If a club can be judged on the calibre of manager they are able to attract,the fact that Liverpool were left with a choice of Brendan Rogers or Roberto Martinez to replace Kenny Dalglish is perhaps the most telling indication yet of their decline,Eight summers ago it was between Rafa Benitez who had just won La liga and uefa cup with Valencia and Jose Mourinho  who had lifted Chamions league and Portuguese title with Porto,this once great club is now reduced to picking managers whos achievement is keeping their clubs in the very division that Liverpool once harboured hopes of winning

says it all about those deluded red twats

Ha, tremendous.

They've ditched the new stadium plans and are now going to knock
down streets to expand Anfield:

Liverpool poised to ditch new stadium in favour of Anfield expansion
• Residents shown proposals to demolish nearby houses
• Liverpool council hopes to begin work on plan this summer

Liverpool, having decided on Brendan Rodgers as their manager, are expected to announce within weeks they intend to stay at Anfield, not build their long-planned new stadium on Stanley Park. Under plans drawn up by Liverpool city council and revealed to local residents, houses would be demolished to enable the club to expand Anfield's main stand.
At a meeting on 15 May attended by Ian Ayre, the Liverpool managing director, residents living in neighbouring streets to Anfield were presented with three worked-up options involving knocking down rows of houses. The council's assistant director for regeneration, Mark Kitts, told the Guardian that Liverpool have confirmed, in discussions with the council, that the demolitions would meet the club's requirements.
"We have been working with the club very closely," Kitts said, "and they have said this will accommodate their needs if they stay at Anfield and refurbish the current stadium."
Kitts said homes would be given "an open market valuation" – which he suggested could be upgraded to reflect an area in better condition – plus a 10% "home loss payment" and removal costs. Liverpool will not have to negotiate directly with residents or buy their houses. Kitts said the council has the option of applying for compulsory purchase powers, to force residents to sell, if necessary. Some home-owning residents are fearful that they will not receive enough to pay for a similar home elsewhere.
Liverpool's principal physical obstacle is not enlarging Anfield's footprint – their plan is understood to involve adding an extra tier, plus corporate facilities, to the Anfield Road and main stands. Doing so, however, would block the "right to light" of those neighbouring houses. Kitts said he believed the demolitions would "solve the right to light issues".
The plans, presented to a neighbourhood "stakeholders meeting", including the Rockfield Residents Association, all propose knocking down the row of terraces closest to the main stand, on Lothair Road. The second two options, more favoured, involve demolishing two additional rows of houses – both rows on Lothair Road, and the first on the next street, Alroy. The remaining houses are planned to be refurbished: one option suggests replacing the demolished houses with a commercial development, possibly a hotel.
Liverpool are still maintaining they are keeping open both their options – to expand Anfield or proceed with the new stadium on Stanley Park. However, the demolition plan, on which Kitts said the council hopes to begin work as soon as this summer, has convinced many local people that this is to facilitate Liverpool staying at Anfield. The council still favours the new stadium but Liverpool's owners, John W Henry's Fenway Sports Group, has made it clear since it bought the club that it would prefer to enlarge Anfield, mainly because it is cheaper.
Liverpool declined to comment on the revelation of the housing demolition blueprint, saying: "The private discussions and plans that Liverpool Football Club has or may have with residents or other stakeholders are, in our opinion, exactly that: 'private'."
Last week Ayre said Liverpool would "need to convince" residents if the club were to stay at Anfield, and said: "We're having some great dialogue with them."
However, Ros Groves, chair of the neighbouring Salisbury Residents Association, said she "hit the roof" when she read that. Her group has also been presented with demolition plans, for a corner opposite the main stand and Kop, which the club could develop commercially. But she said Liverpool have held no meaningful discussions with residents.
"I cannot see how it can be called 'great dialogue' when Ian Ayre has been to one meeting with one residents group," Groves said. "Everybody can see which way this is going now. We just want Liverpool football club to be open with us." Many houses around Anfield have been blighted for years – a significant number bought by the football club and left empty, a source of great resentment among residents left coping with the area's decline.
Some who own their homes, Groves said, fear were worried that that the money they would be paid by the council who will demolish them, will would not be enough to buy a similar home elsewhere.
"Everybody wants a solution to this area's problems," Groves said. "But people who have paid off their mortgages, and long-term tenants, are very concerned about the impact on them."
Liverpool was sold in 2007, to the Americans Tom Hicks and George Gillett, specifically so that finance would be found to build the new stadium on Stanley Park. After they failed to progress the new stadium, Martin Broughton, the chairman conducting the Liverpool sale, said any buyer would "have to accept" building a new stadium. But after FSG bought Liverpool, Henry always made it clear he favoured remaining at Anfield.

Quote from: BBC
Liverpool chairman Tom Werner says: "The style of football Brendan is associated with is exactly what we want to see at Anfield. Aggressive, attacking play; Swansea were a revelation last season with their brand of entertaining football.

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner: "Brendan is only the 18th person to have the great honour of being the Liverpool manager. "I just want to thank Kenny Dalglish, who is the heart and soul of Liverpool. He brought great stability to the club at a time when we needed it. "I believe our supporters will embrace Brendan's attacking principles."

Passive aggressive maybe.

Quote from: BBC
Rodgers says: "The assessment is simple: there's big quality in the squad. I'm really looking forward to working with some of the greats of this football club. Look at Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher. Plus Pepe Reina and Craig Bellamy. They are all top, top players.

"The principles of your game are based upon the players of what you have, so I will look into seeing if we need to bring anyone in to improve that."

Good to see he hasn't lost his sense of humour.

Liverpool's Steven Gerrard says Brendan Rodgers was first choice

By Phil McNulty
 Chief football writer, BBC Sport

Steven Gerrard has taken a swipe at Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan as Liverpool's captain insisted Brendan Rodgers was always first choice to succeed Kenny Dalglish as manager

He said: "I've been kept in the loop all along by the board and the owners and he was always first choice - so take no notice of Dave Whelan.

"I can go on record and guarantee he was first choice."

The England captain is pleased by the arrival of 39-year-old Rodgers, adding: "I've kept my eye on the television and am aware of what's happened. I spoke to Brendan on Thursday night for quite some time.


Which begs the question, why mess Martinez about so publicly?

(http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/05/25/article-2149404-134921C1000005DC-665_634x470.jpg)

If I had a top target, I wouldn't lead on another manager as part of a political game. And the bullshit about assessing and interviewing various candidates to make the right appointment doesn't fly. That isn't how football is run, 99% of clubs don't appoint managers doing that crap. Everyone knows what Martinez can offer.

And therein, I believe, lies the problem at Liverpool. WTF has it got to do with Steven Gerrard who Fenway appoint? Does that not smack of the tail wagging the dog? After all, Mr Gerrard is merely a paid employee of the club, and as such, should keep his mouth shut & get on with doing the job that he is paid very handsomely for. I reckon that there was an element of the Terry & Lampard factor at Chelsea that instigated Vilas Boas' demise at Chelsea, and I reckon that something similar goes on at Anfield. Think about it, when the owners or senior managers at your place of work decide that they are going to replace your line manager, do they ask for your opinion and keep you in the loop throughout the process? If you walked into work next week & it was announced that you would be working under a new boss with immediate effect, would you ask whether he was their first choice? The answer to both of these questions is most likely a resounding NO, because if you did, it would most likely be career suicide & you would probably find yourself looking for pastures new very quickly.
Why was it that Roy Hodgson, a highly respected coach, was hounded out of Liverpool so quickly, despite having a better Win ratio than Dogleash, and spending a lot less money in the process? Was it fan power? Was it player power? I suspect it was probably a combination of both. Will Brendan Rogers be given time at Liverpool? Depends on how popular he is with the players & how quickly he can get the deluded pricks in the stands onside.

Yet "King" Kenny managed to accrue an even lower win ratio, despite spunking tens of millions that Hodgson was never trusted with, and quite a few still believe he was the answer. Woy never stood a chance at Liverpool. He was never given significant funds to build with, was never popular with the fans and was always going to be nothing more than a caretaker whilst the club was sold. There's a very good reason why he's now got the England job, whilst the "king" is stood in the post office cashing his Jigger. Roy Hodgson is not the "yes man" that the deludes would have you believe. He is a highly respected & very articulate individual with a huge knowledge of the game, having managed not only in England, but across Europe too. I think that it was possibly that he had far too much class & dignity for the deludes to accept him. They would much rather have a boorish, classless buffoon at the helm (step forward Rafa & Kenny), than a guy who simply oozes dignity & class. For this reason, I think Brendan Rogers is facing a monumental task at the tin mine.

You know what's really funny though? The crux of your joke is: "Your manager is shit, and our manager is just as shit!"

Only a stupid Kopite would tell a joke that actually mocks his own club.

Spoony - we're laughing at you and your club. You're a joke. A mid-table, below Everton joke. Your new manager was beaten twice by Everton last season, 6 easy points, especially at the Liberty. Rodgers is tactically inept, and unproven when given lots of money to spend. Sacked by Reading too, just over 2 years ago. He can try all he likes to be Moyes-lite, nothing changes his track record. Acting the Billy Big Bollocks now he's at a slightly richer club just makes him even more laughable. He was tugging his forelock at Moyes last season.

Ha ha, that's dead great that.

You know what's really funny though? The crux of your joke is: "Your manager is shit, and our manager is just as shit!"

Only a stupid Kopite would tell a joke that actually mocks his own club.

Spoony - we're laughing at you and your club. You're a joke. A mid-table, below Everton joke. Your new manager was beaten twice by Everton last season, 6 easy points, especially at the Liberty.iRodgers is tactically inept, and unproven when given lots of money to spend. Sackeby Reading too, just over 2 years ago. He can try all he likes to be Moyes-lite, nothing changes his track record. Acting the Billy Big Bollocks now he's at a slightly richer club just makes him even more laughable. He was tugging his forelock at Moyes last season.

Tell me where that joke mocks our own club???? Tell me????

Sorry mate, we beat you 3 times last season. A tin-hatting. Three times! Brendan Rodgers had fcuk all to do with us last season. But cling on what you want to if it eases the paid of getting beat three times last season.

Talk about clutching at straws. Embarrassing.

Yet "King" Kenny managed to accrue an even lower win ratio, despite spunking tens of millions that Hodgson was never trusted with, and quite a few still believe he was the answer. Woy never stood a chance at Liverpool. He was never given significant funds to build with, was never popular with the fans and was always going to be nothing more than a caretaker whilst the club was sold. There's a very good reason why he's now got the England job, whilst the "king" is stood in the post office cashing his Jigger. Roy Hodgson is not the "yes man" that the deludes would have you believe. He is a highly respected & very articulate individual with a huge knowledge of the game, having managed not only in England, but across Europe too. I think that it was possibly that he had far too much class & dignity for the deludes to accept him. They would much rather have a boorish, classless buffoon at the helm (step forward Rafa & Kenny), than a guy who simply oozes dignity & class. For this reason, I think Brendan Rogers is facing a monumental task at the tin mine.

...oh by the way, we lost to Northampton in the cup too. The cup that Kenny WON a year after.

We're laughing at you appointing a manager who we beat twice last season. You're going on about him being congratulated for winning nothing like Moyes. That's brilliant - a dig at Moyes for winning nothing, by pointing out that your own new manager - the man you're bringing in to replace Dalglish who won you a trophy - has in fact won the same amount as Moyes.

It's not much of a dig at us by pointing out your new hope is supposedly just like Moyes, is it?

And you know what I'm laughing at? The fact you celebrated your manager being un charge of your club for 10 years. Without winning anything. Ever.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Who celebrated anything? Nobody did as far as I'm aware. Marked 10 years in charge? Yes, of course they did. 10 years at one club hardly ever happens. A man who has achieved a 7th place average finish for the last 10 years, who has hardly spent any money at all and any he has spent has been money generated by selling his best players, and who is heavily respected by his peers and most fans, was given some recognition.

You go on about how 'winning trophies is everything' and all that usual Liverpool dated bullshit from the 1970s and 1980s, yet you just binned off one of your best managers ever, who won you a trophy last season, and replaced him with someone who has never won anything and has one years experience managing in the top flight.

So yeah, excuse us for having a titter at your expense. :snigger:

I never felt it was a celebration more recognition of his service.
Everton do have one of the best managers in the uk, although he does have weaknesses and belief issues which even drove me to question if it was time for him to go, let's be clear about the 3 derbies as well we were cheated by a shithouse ref at home, the anfield one should have been sponsored by a hotdog firm and wembley we froze/ lacked belief.  Evertonians, as far as I know, to a man are ashamed certainly of the last two as they should not have happened as you were there for the taking. They did and we move on to next season.

The reason why most evertonians laud moyes as a "success" is because of the restrictions within which he works, something which non of the managers around him suffer. Most evertonians do not see this as real success, but understand the reality of the situation the club is in and adjust expectation accordingly. Don't mix expectation up with ambition though because again every evertonian desperately wants a trophy.

I genuinely believe that if moyes had had even half the wedge available to him that various shite  bosses we would be further along than we are, and would have trophies in the cabinet.

The idea that evertonians are happy is just wrong, we just know that things could be a lot worse without moyes.

In fairness to BWS he has been around these forums for a lot longer than most of the blue posters on here, around 5 years if memory serves, he started posting here after a series of matches against the this is anfield site which were great fun. In all that time only once ave I thought he was being a "typical red shite" and I can't remember what it was now.  He stands up for himself and comes across as a decent guy, an exception that proves the rule of kopite gobshitery.

He also isn't a wind up teenage scally, if I remember rightly he will be cruising towards his pension just now (either that or a really tough paper round) . And he is far fom handsome so be nice to the chap.  :-)

Half the posts in this thread are from Spoony.

It's called banter and humour. If you have a dedicated thread to Liverpool, it will not be filled with references to their style of play and their chances of finishing in the the top-4.

That was the point. Obviously I'm not getting it across very well.

I'm not married to one, they can piss me off just as much as they piss of any other Evertonian. I have mates that are RS and they can be just as annoying as some unknown on the internet. All I'm saying is we can't really criticise the thread that they have, when this one will be just the same in time. Whether we like it or not there are fans of ours that are just as obsessed with them as they are of us, thankfully they're in the minority.

If I remember correctly, we got knocked out of the cup by Shrewsbury Town a few years ago. Difference is, we decided to keep faith with our manager AND sold our best player that summer. Strange thing was, the following season, we finished fourth in the league, enough to get us a Champions League spot. All this without any real investment in the squad. The money raised from selling Rooney was pretty much all we had spent. Do you think Mr Daglish could have led a team featuring Marcus Bent (THATS MARCUS, NOT DARREN!) & Kevin Kilbane to a fourth place in the premier league?

I remember speaking with a Liverpool fan who was detirmined t he would be great. And telling him he wa worth 12 mill tops and was more of an everton player than a Liverpool player.

Because he's a dreadful player with absolutely no technical ability at all.

With the likes of Neville and Hibbert on the pitch and Moyes on the touchline you'd have to go see a chiropractor every Monday morning to realign the verterbrae in your neck from casting your head back for 90 minutes every time we play.

He's slow, got an abysmal touch and is nothing more than a bully. Play a high line against him, therby keeping him out the penalty area and he becomes completely redundant.

Eventually, one manager at Liverpool is going to start getting more things right than he is wrong.

Benitez eventually lost his mind over Fergie and that fucked them up, Hodgson was never really taken to, Dalglish is past it, Rodgers is still relatively unknown.

Lets hope he carries on the way their most recent gaffers have, but they keep backin them and eventually it's likely to come good.

Thing is, they've lost a lot of ground in the last 2 or 3 years that they're nowhere near the top 4 just now which is all part of their structure. A couple more years out of the CL and it could properly fuck them up.

I agree, but in a similar situation  it took United a lot of time, money and managers to get to winning things with Fergie. I can't see them giving Rogers anywhere near the same time to build a team as he had, footballs became more about instant success since then. Added to the fact that Fergie was a proven winner previously and Rogers is just as likely to turnout to be a flash in the pan as much as a success.

At the moment he looks like a more media savy version of Paul Jewell to me.

Unless they make some serious buys before September I can't see them even challenging us for 7th. They've lost all their big game players and match winners like Rodriguez and Kuyt.

Gerrard is a year older, he can't carry them forever. I'd be surprised to see Reina stay. Suarez too. Skrtel wants off. Carroll is being forced out. Their preseason has been a wash out with no wins and 1 goal in 3 games. They say it's only for fitness but surely if you're playing Spurs its a measure of where you'll be come August 18th?

Can't see Bale being out injured for any great deal of time, if at all.

Adams was slow and clumsy, and the tackle was certainly not the horror tackle I was led to believe it was by the tottenham camp or the media.  I've seen a lot, lot worse.

It was a cynical attempt to. Break up play, nothing else se it every week in prem, stops a breakaway allows defenders to get back properly, it is rarely punished with anything other than a free kick. I hate seeing but all clubs do it, Liverpool, everton, spurs all guilty. Rarely ends in a bad injury, a tactic that probably is out of order in a friendly is the worst you can say about it.

It looks like a trip, but he raise his foot a little higher than normal for that sort of challenge.

Plus, you have to consider he does have previous with Gareth Bale.

Might have to agree to disagree, but have a closer look at the challenge in the replay is all I would suggest. As I said it wasn't the worst challenge, but its a friendly and Liverpool had more than enough cover.

When players trip others to give a free kick and stop a break, they tend to catch a foot or leg in the air. Adam goes for Bale's planted back foot with studs and a stamping motion. Adam is not doing it to stop a break, he was going for Bale with malice.

Put this in the Everton section as we've been linked with him about a million times (feel free to move though), hope this isnt true though!

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/liverpool-transfers-manuel-fernandes-besiktas-1195821 (http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/liverpool-transfers-manuel-fernandes-besiktas-1195821)

Portugal midfielder Manuel Fernandes is a £7million target for Liverpool.

Fernandes, 26, was once regarded as one of the hottest prospects in Europe, and was courted by Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

The ex-Benfica star, now with Turkish side Besiktas, is familiar with the Premier League after two loan spells at Everton in 2007 and 2008 and a stint at Portsmouth in 2006.

Liverpool are one of a clutch of clubs who have been alerted that Portugal international Fernandes could be on the move this summer.

Fernandes would be keen on a return to England and new Reds manager Brendan Rodgers is now weighing up a potential deal.

I think this might have been a cry for protection from the referees for the coming season.

Well, it's not as simple as that. There seems to be a coordinated attack on UK banks, who are of course far from blameless, but neither are those US banks that strangely seem to get away with a slap on the wrist. (Much like UK banks do here.)

Technically there's no law that says you can't trade with people from Iran, and surely there are a lot of perfectly legitimate businesses in Iran that they used to trade with, and apart from it being against US foreign policy, there's little wrong with that. The trouble is that they did it by falsifying electronic records and accounts, which of course means that it must have also been a money launderer's paradise.

The average age of puberty onset is 13 (Jorgensen & Keiding 1991). Are you really advocating that a 12 year old should drink?

I think most can see Allen won't be the player that turns them into a top 4 team.

I'd say Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea chasing 3rd - 5th, then the rest you mentioned gunning for 6th.

I think city, united and Chelsea just have too much for arsenal, but they are a bit ahead on paper than the rest of the group i mentioned.  I think it's more likely that spurs/Liverpool and at a push everton would be more likely to finish above Arsenal than they are to overhaul any of  Chelsea and the mancs. Mos people would feel safe tipping arsenal for 4th.

I'm certainly thinking Liverpool are in the group chasing for 5th or 6th, but I reckon Spurs will be too strong and should finish above us.That's the beauty of football, they'll be surprises and shocks along the way and nothing is for definite.

Looking forward to it.

The reason I said this was because we both have new managers, and with them having a strong season and us not so much, I decided to opt for them finishing higher.

I guess it's whichever manger gets the best out of the team and hits the ground running. Interesting season for both clubs.

I'd quite like AVB to do well considering his time at Chelsea, but I can't help feeling Levy made a mistake with his handling of Redknapp. Kinda reminds me of Rafa getting the boot at Liverpool after failing to getting the CL place at Liverpool. Both managers had overachieved and were victims of their own success in a way.

Interested to see how it'll shake out this season.

They've bought Oussama Assaidi from Heerenveen.

There's a soap styled story in here, as it was looking like he was going to Ajax, the clubs agreed, only the player demanded a higher salary than Ajax was willing to pay.
So he didn't sign.

The Moroccan international is a (promising) winger who scored 20 times in 79 matches for the Friesian club.
Heerenveen have now lost all their attacking players this summer, meaning their new coach, Marco van Basten has his work cut out.

He's a good player, I think, only his behaviour was reportedly a little strange at times, as opposed to Narsingh, who was a more down to earth character.

I don't want to generalize too much, but some of these second or third generation Moroccans can be touchy at times.
They need a different approach than a Jan, Piet or Klaas from the polder (see Mounir El Hamdaoui as the ultimate example with his behaviour at Ajax), a player like Ibrahim Afellay is luckily different.

He was roundly ridiculed for the move over here.
Ajax would have been a step up for him, and taking a few years to develop, he could leave as a star, like Suarez and Jan Vertonghen.

He'll be earning more money now, but will it be the best move for him as a player?
If not, the agent wins again. :)

I watched it.

first half they were the better side with Suarez in particular causing a lot of threat but his finishing was appalling.,lots of possession but little end product.

second half West Brom were all over them and it could have been 4 or 5 in the end. first penalty, the contact may have been out of the box but either way should have been red card as he was last man, whether it was inside or not made little difference as it was a terrible penalty. for the second penalty was very poor defending, Skrtel looked like he was running through treacle then Long got in front of him and Skrtel clipped his heels.

the referee didn't do them any favours booking most of their players for innocuous fouls while more cynical ones from west Brom players went unpunished though I think the major decisions were right.

Allen played well too.

Alright, I may be wrong with saying he's not a striker.

...but as to say we had £80m worth of striking out there on the pitch is silly.  Downing is a winger. He's not a "goalscorer".

Even if you do include Downing in that £80m figure, he came off at 60 minutes, Carroll came on in the 79th.  So these two were never on the pitch at the same time, which debunks the argument that we had £80m worth of goalscorers on the pitch towards the end.

I agree with what people are saying with regards to the value being less, but it certainly wasn't £80m.

80m was a rough estimate.....but as this seems to have touched a nerve....

For starters... Borini Suarez & Carol = £68m
As Gerrard is your 9th all time top scorer (150 goals) are you going to argue hes NOT a goal scorer? Lets give a conservative estimate of his value.. say £12m

theres £80m for you.. on the pitch at the end of the West Brom game...

I'd agree it was about that.

Should have been enough, you would have thought.  Although we did play a third of the match a man down, and Carroll only come on after 67 minutes approx.

But yeah, it should have been enough, no disrespect to WBA.
Title: Re: An expert
Post by: BigWoodenSpoon on August 23, 2012, 07:30:23 PM
80m was a rough estimate.....but as this seems to have touched a nerve....

For starters... Borini Suarez & Carol = £68m
As Gerrard is your 9th all time top scorer (150 goals) are you going to argue hes NOT a goal scorer? Lets give a conservative estimate of his value.. say £12m

theres £80m for you.. on the pitch at the end of the West Brom game...

Now just being pedantic... "goalscorer" I don't really need to go into it do I...... But just one of the other players.. Id guess Johnson was purchased mainly for his attacking ability..  all £18m worth of it  :whistle:

i read part of it, i dont like McCartney at all so wont comment.

I just think you are fighting a losing battle, you had £70m worth of players on the pitch and couldnt score, it is more than enough, like you said to score, to WIN against West Brom. Thats it.

Looking at their line up against Hearts tonight you instantlly realise just how shite they are right now.

They have Gerrard, Suarez and Downing to come back into that side, Adam and Carroll will be moved on and Rodgers will get to to spend roughly half of that money imo.

ANOTHER year out the CL next season, further throwing their business model into turmoil and you have to begin to question when they're gonna start defaulting on their loans.

If Fortune was on the pitch when it was 11 vs 11 I would have liked to have seen how he him faired then. They had the extra man and we were stretched by the time Fortune came on.

Football doesn't work like that. Man Utd should have won against you guys on Monday if you're looking at it that way. They never. Shit happens.

All my argument was, is that the goalscorers on the pitch towards the end of the match wasn't £80m which you seem to be in agreement with. Granted with £70m or so we should have done better.

I and most other fans expect their midfielders to chip in with their fair share of goals, in particular the attacking ones. Cahill of Everton. Lampard of Chelsea and Gerrard of Liverpool being particuarly good examples. Downing being a bad example.

Anyway, come October you will be about 10 points behind us in the table so how many 'goalscorers' you have and how much they cost will be irrelevant (to me).

I agree, definity. But they're midfielders, rather than "goalscorers" in the footballing positional sense. Goodness knows we need a goalscorer at the moment, but if Liverpool said they've bought a goalscorer and then unveiled a midfielder I'd be slightly miffed.

Yeah right, I'm not soft. We've got City, Arsenal and Utd coming up, not much of a chance for us to play catch-up.

Last day October, if you're ahead of us by 10pts or more I owe you a 'virtual' tenner. If it's less, you owe me a virtual tenner. Could make the first derby extra interesting as I'm sure it's the last game in October. ;)

After Arsenal agreed a £2mill loan deal puls a portion of wages, Liverpool came in and offered £5mill + all of his wages which amounts to £6mill with no option to buy at the end of the loan.  Strange tactic to gazump another club on a loan deal with no option to sign the player at the end.  It's a dreadful deal financially.

That's an absurd statement. We have better players in numerous positions. They do have more players, that has to be said, and certainly have more financial muscle (although they are inept when it comes to wisely spending it). Rodgers may indeed be a good manager, but time well tell. At the minute Moyes has him beaten hands down, and you can guarantee most clubs would rather have Moyes than Rodgers.

The comment on our mental ability to break the top four is unfair, but we do certainly have problems beating them, despite being superior on the pitch and on paper quite often recently.

Yea, they've been the better team. They look quite good actually, playing high energy and moving the ball well.

I think they will struggle to keep up that level of energy in the second half and certainly Man City will be top for another 25 or 30 minutes period at least. It depends on if they can capitalise.

I have to say though, it's been an entertaining game.

Yeah right, I'm not soft. We've got City, Arsenal and Utd coming up, not much of a chance for us to play catch-up.

Last day October, if you're ahead of us by 10pts or more I owe you a 'virtual' tenner. If it's less, you owe me a virtual tenner. Could make the first derby extra interesting as I'm sure it's the last game in October. ;)

What you reckon, it's not as if it's real money anyway?

My original proposal was for beginning of October, 10 points in front. That is the virtual bet.

Now, 2 games in, 5 points down already. Game on.

Allen is a cracking player, I think a lot didn't realise his ability last season, in favour of Britton with the stats, me included.

Sahin is a quality player and I'd much rather he went to the goonies, but I still think there is enough shit to float to the top. They don't have a goalscorer and I don't think they will strengthen that area, unless someone is so blind drunk they see Carroll as good value to buy or loan. The result against City deserves respect, but I don't see who has reason to be scared of playing the RS, people may talk about them performing against top teams, but those are their cup finals recently due to a team lacking in real ability.

Rogers is basically having a dig publicly hoping it will put pressure on him...

"I can only ever be straight with players.

I thought the comments by Rodgers were a disgrace in relation to Carroll. Things like that should be kept out of the press. Sounds like Rodgers is trying to make some kind of statement to the players.

I also feel sorry for Carroll, even though I don't particularly like the guy. He was starting to get it together and make a name for himself at Newcastle. It's not his fault that Liverpool put a crazy bid in for him that Newcastle couldn't afford to turn down. The sad thing is, all the lad wants to do is go back to Newcastle, yet he could end up even further away.

It's still nice to see them blowing even more money on players. Half what they paid for Adam and they'll be lucky to get anything like half what they paid for Carroll when it finally comes to selling him.

Rodgers is seemingly trying to show he is the boss, which in fairness could be a tough ask for some as he is following the prodical son that is Kenny Dalglish. In doing so I'd agree I think his handling of certain players hasn't put him in the best light recently.

It's hard to know t this point if he's on a hiding to nothing ala AVB or if he can buy enough time to make more progress.

I'm quite happy we never splashed out stupid money on players that on my view, wouldn't have added too much to the team.

Could have done with a quality striker incase Suarez gets injured, but hey-ho.

Sometimes it's not about the players you buy but the players you keep. I'm more than happy Agger and Skrtel are still at Anfield.

What I don't like is the supporters acting like spoilt brats because we weren't joining in with the spending spree. You would have thought that the Carroll situation might have taught the fans a few things, but obviously not.

I'll be looking at Moyes new signing with interest. He usually uncovers some gems from the rough.

The Yanks have clearly recognised how big a mistake they made by appointing Daglish and sanctioning his purchases, A few years ago we were put in a similar position when the Yak got injured and we relied on Felli and Cahill to play up front, they both done well, ... Can Liverpoo adapt as well if Suer-ratz gets injured/banned again ?

I'd have to agree with you. It's all been very much 'mixed messages' on all fronts. Personally I think we need to start keeping things in-house.

Some shit is going to "get" out, no matter how much they try and stop it. But it was the direct quotes from him that surprised me. A learning curve I suppose, unless he was so annoyed with the situation common sense went out the window, which would have me worried. He's not exactly came straight out of 6th form into the job, he should know better.

Like you say though, at least none of the bigger clubs have come in poaching.

------------------Reina------------
Johnson--Srktel---Agger---Enrique
--------------Lucas----Allen----------
Downing----Gerrard----Borini

Eventful last day of the transfer window...but not so much for us. ;)

I'm quite happy we never splashed out stupid money on players that on my view, wouldn't have added too much to the team.

Could have done with a quality striker incase Suarez gets injured, but hey-ho.

Sometimes it's not about the players you buy but the players you keep. I'm more than happy Agger and Skrtel are still at Anfield.

What I don't like is the supporters acting like spoilt brats because we weren't joining in with the spending spree. You would have thought that the Carroll situation might have taught the fans a few things, but obviously not.

I'll be looking at Moyes new signing with interest. He usually uncovers some gems from the rough.

Good shout that mate, albeit you still need a striker, its more to the point of increasing a quantity than retaining quality in this instance. Liverpool will badly struggle with a few injuries, this pass and move ethos that rogers is desperate to impose doesnt always work against teams, you need a diverse range of players to revert to different styles of play and I really dont think hes got that at Liverpool.  Letting carroll go was daft.

I would of been happy keeping baines fellaini and pienaar.  The fact weve added a few players has put a big smile on my face like.  Some much needed depth added to the squad now.

I think a cold analysis of it would probably say that they're hardly a sinking ship quite yet. What would worry me as a fan is that the hang over from King Kenny seems to have very much changed the owner's approach to the club and it's workings. They're cautious and careful. Worried about getting burned financially and wary of how the club conducts its business (see: the Suarez/Evra case).

Add to that the poorly managed transfer window - Rodger's bizarre airing of dirty laundry in public. The desperation to get rid of quite a few players who cost the club BIG money last year and the confusion regarding his budget (the BBC claim he didn't know his £20mil budget had to include wages until very late on) all play into a situation which doesn't look much beyond a farce.

The business that was done doesn't seem to have strengthened the team that much, and I think the Sahin situation is mental. 5mil fee, 5mil wages and no chance to buy. 10mil for a season?

Still, like some have said, they still have good players, and it doesn't pay to be too smug, because you never know.

Still don't think they're anything to fear. There's not many goals in that starting eleven so they're going to be dependent on Reina, Agger and Skrtel keeping it very tight at the back, and Allen/Gerrard driving them on. One or two injuries could really see them struggle.

New Free Transfer Signing (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,24733.msg476099.html#msg476099) posted this in the deadline day thread.

Quote from: BBC
"@BenSmithBBC (https://twitter.com/BenSmithBBC/status/241792098066649088): Was told yesterday, Brendan Rodgers only realised his £20m summer transfer budget included wages, very late on"

I think this makes quite a lot of sense, as he did seem rather smug for a manager who would fail to land their one target yesterday. The other thing I had thought was Rodgers may have expected some to go for fees and remove some wages off the bill and it never materialised which left them short of room for manouvere.

Their squad seems a little short and I think Rodgers will already be tainted for some fans. But he has yet to experience balancing a team playing in 4 competitions, so he might have a very difficult time in the near future, he won't get too many chances.

They've still got a good team. Between Allen, Lucas, Sahin, and Gerrard they have a fantastic center midfield that should have the ability to win them games.

If Borini settles in and comes good that could give them the goalscorer they need to complement Suarez, who although he isn't the greatest finisher, will still get 15 to 20 goals a season.

You've only sold Adam though (OK fair enough wages asaved on Carroll and Spearing) but at the expense of ending up with a rediculous small squad.  The only thing I can think is that Rodgers wants to make it look like he will get rid of whoever he wants to maybe look 'strong'. 

His comments about putting players into castegories like 'first eleven', 'fillers in' and 'developers' was bizarre.  WTF are the 'fillers in' meant to feel like with that tag?

Was amazed when they showed the bench today, very little attacking options. Suarez is just not a natural finisher, and did not see much of his strike partner.

It is not impossible for a low scoring team to to ok in the prem, how many goals did we score when we finished fourth? The problem is that they look really shaky at the back too. I'm sure Reina's form will return, but you could easily see them conceding a goal or two and they do not have the firepower to respond.

The transfer window was a fiasco for Liverpool, and they left the window with a worse squad that they went into it with, accepting Joe Allen is a great little player.

I am sure they will do ok, but they will have to find a goal threat from somewhere soon.

Anybody seen the forthcoming fly-on-the-wall documentary FOX are putting out on our favourite neighbours entitled 'Being Liverpool'.

"Being Liverpool" sneak peek courtesy FOX Soccer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQH3Ber7XaQ&feature=player_embedded#ws)

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish’s summer sacking will be revealed in the opening episode of a controversial fly-on the-wall documentary about the club to be screened later this month, Inside Sport can reveal.

The American TV network FOX promised ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’ when announcing a ground-breaking documentary about the club earlier this year. And while some Liverpool fans and insiders are likely to be uncomfortable that the inner workings of Anfield will be laid bare, the show will deliver on its no-holds-barred promise.

A spokesman for Fox tells Inside Sport: ‘The first episode of the series covers LFC’s quest for the FA Cup final through to the hiring of new manager Brendan Rodgers. Coverage of former manager Kenny Dalglish’s dismissal is included in the first episode and the subject is addressed directly.’

Top clubs tend to do their business in secret, with controversies hushed up, dissent kept in-house and the washing of dirty laundry done strictly in private.

But as FOX Soccer’s executive vice-president David Nathanson told me in April, its account of Liverpool’s ups and downs between early May and now ‘is not a soft promotional piece. This is the inner workings revealed for the first time’.

Hence the six-part series, which is called 'Being: Liverpool’, will be a ‘warts and all’ behind-the-scenes story of events, including the FA Cup final defeat by Chelsea in May (when some Liverpool fans booed the National Anthem), the sacking of much-loved Dalglish, the pursuit and hiring of a new manager and Liverpool’s summer tour to North America, when Rodgers first laid out his philosophy to his new charges, not without hiccups.

I thought they played okay in the first half but didn't see the second half. By all accounts they were awful.

But it really is a comedy over there. Brenda seems to have bitten off more than he can chew. Played the hard man with his players and overplayed his commitment to beautiful football. He seems to have no sense of what is required for manager of a team that sees itself as one of the best in the world.

Still, with a few tweaks and maybe Owen or Drogba coming in, I wouldn't rule them out from turning it around. They still have a few good players and if they hit form (particularly Reina and Gerrard) I see things looking differently. I also think Sterling looks excellent for them and Allen is looking like he might fit in really well.

Not sure if Brenda is really up for the job, though. Interesting times for them (and us)!

Henry has came out to the fans why the didn't spend money

I am as disappointed as anyone connected with Liverpool Football Club that we were unable to add further to our strike force in this summer transfer window, but that was not through any lack of desire or effort on the part of all of those involved. They pushed hard in the final days of the transfer window on a number of forward targets and it is unfortunate that on this occasion we were unable to conclude acceptable deals to bring those targets in.

But a summer window which brought in three young, but significantly talented starters in Joe Allen, Nuri Sahin and Fabio Borini as well as two exciting young potential stars of the future - Samed Yesil and Oussama Assaidi - could hardly be deemed a failure as we build for the future. 

Nor should anyone minimise the importance of keeping our best players during this window. We successfully retained Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel and Luis Suarez. We greatly appreciate their faith and belief in the club. And we successfully negotiated new, long-term contracts with Luis and with Martin.

No one should doubt our commitment to the club. In Brendan Rodgers we have a talented young manager and we have valued highly his judgement about the make-up of the squad. This is a work in progress. It will take time for Brendan to instill his philosophy into the squad and build exactly what he needs for the long term.

The transfer policy was not about cutting costs. It was - and will be in the future - about getting maximum value for what is spent so that we can build quality and depth. We are avowed proponents of UEFA's Financial Fair Play agenda that was this week reiterated by Mr Platini - something we heartily applaud. We must comply with Financial Fair Play guidelines that ensure spending is tied to income. We have been successful in improving the commercial side of the club and the monies generated going forward will give us greater spending power in the coming years.

We are still in the process of reversing the errors of previous regimes. It will not happen overnight. It has been compounded by our own mistakes in a difficult first two years of ownership. It has been a harsh education, but make no mistake, the club is healthier today than when we took over.   

Spending is not merely about buying talent. Our ambitions do not lie in cementing a mid-table place with expensive, short-term quick fixes that will only contribute for a couple of years. Our emphasis will be on developing our own players using the skills of an increasingly impressive coaching team. Much thought and investment already have gone into developing a self-sustaining pool of youngsters imbued in the club's traditions.

That ethos is to win. We will invest to succeed. But we will not mortgage the future with risky spending.

After almost two years at Anfield, we are close to having the system we need in place. The transfer window may not have been perfect but we are not just looking at the next 16 weeks until we can buy again: we are looking at the next 16 years and beyond. These are the first steps in restoring one of the world's great clubs to its proper status.

It will not be easy, it will not be perfect, but there is a clear vision at work.

We will build and grow from within, buy prudently and cleverly and never again waste resources on inflated transfer fees and unrealistic wages. We have no fear of spending and competing with the very best but we will not overpay for players.

We will never place this club in the precarious position that we found it in when we took over at Anfield. This club should never again run up debts that threaten its existence.

Most of all, we want to win. That ambition drives every decision. It is the Liverpool way. We can and will generate the revenues to achieve that aim. There will be short-term setbacks from time to time, but we believe we have the right people in place to bring more glory to Anfield.

Finally, I can say with authority that our ownership is not about profit. Contrary to popular opinion, owners rarely get involved in sports in order to generate cash. They generally get involved with a club in order to compete and work for the benefit of their club. It's often difficult. In our case we work every day in order to generate revenues to improve the club. We have only one driving ambition at Liverpool and that is the quest to win the Premier League playing the kind of football our supporters want to see. That will only occur if we do absolutely the right things to build the club in a way that makes sense for supporters, for us and for those who will follow us. We will deliver what every long-term supporter of Liverpool Football Club aches for.

He hasn't been backed by the board the way they backed Cunt Kenny, and as much as they try to polish the turd, they've had to get rid of players to ease debts, just like the way we do and how they like to poke fun at that.

We very rarely choke to them at home, they've either beat us because of dickhead refs or just having a better team. Anfield is a different story mind

Correct.

Whats been more frustrating about our anfield visits is that we have also choked when they have literally been there for the taking.

That one where kyrgiakos got sent off I think, we had one half chance in the whole of the second half against 10 men, think it was cahill with a bobbled effort, it was pathetic.

I think we also got beat by them 3-1 when they went down to ten men when Gerrard fouled Kilbane.

The worst was last season when moyes rested players for the sunderland match. In a run of 8 matches, they won 1, guess who against? Us. Fancy resting our best team when they where in the middle of one of their worst runs in history, pissed me right off that.

I really want moyes to go for it at anfield this year.

Worst for me was when we went 2-1 up with goals from Distin and Beckford, and just sat back for the rest of the game.

We'd been terrible in that game though save for a five minute spell when we scored.

The rest of the match just followed what happened before that spell.

For a lot of Moyes' reign they have simply been better than us. To therefore lose away wasn't really a surprise, home games are obviously a different matter.

It's the last 3 years where we should be doing better, home and away as the teams are obviously very close now.

Spoilt brats, just because they're not getting millions of pounds in pocket money every week they want someone new. They're gonna go the same way as Leeds if they're not careful. Here's hoping.

Listening to their crying fans on Talksport is comedy- they had a poll on who to bring in as an emergency striker, Owen came bottom, Heskey 2nd and Fowler top. Had Owen not come out in the press and declared he wouldn't be going back to Analfield then no doubt he would've topped the poll.

I said exactly this on Twitter, the amount of spoilt brats that were crying out of their arses because we never spent money was unbelievable.  Granted we needed a striker but was the Chelsea striker really the answer to all our prayers???  I don't think so.  Some of our fans need to realise where we were two years ago.  I'm sure Rangers fans would have something to say to those fans of ours wanting us to spend all this money, when quite clearly the money isn't there.

We're no longer this club that can spend serious money on big name players.  The sooner our fans realise this the better.

On another point the game against Arsenal wasn't good at all.  Gerrard didn't seem up for it and that reflected in our game.  He played well against City, but the number of brilliant games he's been having lately is fewer than I care to remember.  Age may be slowly getting to him.

As for the derby, someone mentioned on here that they don't think we'll have the fight in our belly.  I hate to say it, but I think they could be right.  I can see you guys being well up for it.

Thank God for the international break as we've been looking knackered lately, especially so on Sunday.  Maybe the game on Thursday took something out of us.  I certainly hope so.  Hopefully we'll come back from it a lot fresher.  With Sunderland (away) and United up next, I can see our results getting worse before they get better.

Daglish spunked all the serious money just not on big name players. Rodgers still had a 30m kitty this year, thats not bad but admittedly your fans wanna spend 100m per year as thats the only way you (and most teams) will be able to challenge nowadays

The semi last year was as low as i've felt against them ever.

They were truly atrocious that game and we had been flying up till that point in the league and continued to do so afterwards.

Moyes needs to lose this side from his tactical approach for us to ever be considered worthy of being up there challenging them for the league placings year in year out.

Moyes' tactics against them in individual games (good or bad) are irrelevant though as to whether we are good enough to finish high up the league.

There are other factors from their side too.

It's noticeable that Gerrard drags one of his few remaining performances left in him out against us for example.

We should be doing better and it is frustrating to say the least, but it doesn't impact on our overall quality.

Just read that article.  How old are his kids then?  I take it they're younger than 7 judging by his "Liverpool haven't done anything since they were born statement".

We do need to start heading in the right direction, especially with that fourth spot looking a lot more distant than the last few seasons.  We won't be doing it overnight though, it's going to be a slow process.  And I'll be honest, I think you guys might just finish ahead of us again this season if Moyes carries on the way he has been.

To be fair, they're actually playing OK. A few of the young guns look good, but there isn't anything to cream your pants about.

A few observations, though. Carragher is on the verge of past it. He's there for leadership, but it is very much a reflection on his relation to real 1st team football - he's nowhere near. It puts into sharp relief Downing's place in the squad.

I was surprised to hear Beglin even defending his record last season because the stats of 0 goals, 0 assists fails to count the assists he gave which weren't scored. Total nonsense.

Are they having some sort of Hillsborough remembrance prior to the Manchester United match kick off? I could see that ending very badly.

Same thing was getting said when United done a Munich tribute when playing City, nothing happened. People were expecting trouble when we played The Shite at Wembley, nothing happened, nothing will happen. I get the impression the media want something to happen, they way they build everything up.

Key words in there "who are scousers". Always seemed to me those reds who are from Liverpool or have some connection to the city (parents, etc) look forward to us, while foreign/out of town fans are more concerned with the glory of beating united.

I was standing in Church Street listening to all the reds passing by. (Liverpool were at home)
Lots of cockney accents and Scands.

Wish people would stop bigging these bellends up, they've played Utd and City, yes, but they couldn't beat either while they were bothe seemingly at their lowest ebb, especially City, they were absolutely terrible. Not to mention the fact they were hammered by West Brom, and could only manage a draw against an average Sunderland side.

Part of this "inferiority complex" that we have with Liverpool is partly down to people like yourself (not having a go at you mate) automatically assuming they'll turn us over. Let's be positive, and believe we can beat this terrible Liverpool side

I'm sure they'll move up the table but some of those games are the kind that usually they get pumped up for and play a better game. This is the first time Man Utd have won there for 4-5 seasons I think. The West Brom and Sunderland games can't be discounted as they show an average game where they might be a little less motivated and still have issues scoring, and defending for that matter.

I epect them to win, but Norwich away will be an interesting test.

Yeah right, I'm not soft. We've got City, Arsenal and Utd coming up, not much of a chance for us to play catch-up.

Last day October, if you're ahead of us by 10pts or more I owe you a 'virtual' tenner. If it's less, you owe me a virtual tenner. Could make the first derby extra interesting as I'm sure it's the last game in October.

What you reckon, it's not as if it's real money anyway?

My original proposal was for beginning of October, 10 points in front. That is the virtual bet.

Now, 2 games in, 5 points down already. Game on.

Eight points in front now.....only 1 game to go.....

They just don't get enough people into the box.

They've played ok in the games that I've seen but the ok bit is the middle third. They look suspect at the back and have no cutting edge up front.

There was one Gerrard cross in injury time and there was no-one there. Yes they had 10 men, but in years gone by, they'd have had it flooded and the other team panicking like mad. Rodgers clearly doesn't want them to be left exposed.

I just don't understand how they can't be livid that they sold Torres for £50m and so had a great chance to flesh out their striking dept and all they managed to do was buy someone who is very good outside the box but not so great in it and a massive cart horse.

They could have had Falcao for that in the summer if they'd waited!

Irrespective of whether Rodgers thought that they'd get a replacement for Carroll or not he still showed no tactical flexibility to try and find a role for him.

I mean people bang on about Swansea's style of play but he had Danny Graham up front for them; surely Carroll's better than him. Not 10x better, but better none the less.

I said this all along. A good manager should be able to utilise the players he has available to him and create a winning pattern of play to suite them all. He's made a rod for his own back with all the sound bites about "his way of playing" which will come back to bite him on the arse if you ask me. Although I suspect that some of it was down to the clubs owners trying to sell him to the fans because he wasn't the big name they wanted or expected, and probably not their first choice judging by the Martinez discussions.

Injuries are mounting up for them, results are going badly and the new pattern of play is flawed with this set of players. I reckon it's likely to carry on for some time and think they may struggle to make the top ten this season.

It was interesting watching the incidents in that game because in real time I suspected Liverpool had one decent penalty shout turned down and I did wonder if Evans should have been booked too (not sent off as he was focused on the ball and didn't leap in as aggressively as Shelvey).

Watching them in replays, it seems all the big decisions were correct. Both penalty shouts were in fact OK tackles (even if the Scholes one was, typically, a bit messy) and the sending off was certainly within the realms of red while Evans was only after the ball and not nearly as aggressive and deserved a yellow at worst.

Given that I find it odd they are appealing.

His default reaction is to look for a foul/complain/appeal and by that I mean it's not something he does as a last resort, he's always got it in his mind how he can cheat in the situations.

It comes to something when all his own team mates can do is say that his reputation shouldn't stop him getting decisions; they can't even be bothered to say that he doesn't dive!

See, I hate to be that guy, but that's not at all what the law states.

The two possible charges that could constitute a straight red from a tackle are 1. Serious foul play, and 2. Violent conduct. Though I haven't seen the match report, I'm guessing the red card charge for Shelvy was serious foul play (violent conduct is usually used for off the ball incidents or directly attacking another player (i.e, throwing an elbow while going for the ball).

This shows how tough it can be on referees. No real definition for serious foul play is offered, so the referee has to make a split second decision without much guideline to go off of except his own opinion. Nowhere in the entire law book does it mention two footed lunges, studs showing, or making a flying tackle.

LFC have a thin squad right now due to a lack of getting players in as well as losing players to injuries. The worst thing that can happen to them is having more games to play. Now they have to worry about fielding squads for EPL, League Cup, and Europa League matches. Congrats to them for being involved in those two extra competitions, but they are going to wear their players out and all their results will likely suffer.

Some may say it is a good problem to have but not when you are 18th in the league with first team players getting suspended and injured.

100% agree with you about Evans.

Imo officials should be allowed to book players for simulating pain/injuries, not only for simulating contact with officials. If an official sees a player hit in one spot and goes down holding another (ex: getting elbowed in the chest and holding your face), or rolling around like they've been shot, the official should be allowed to yellow card the offending player. All cards given for this reason will be reviewed post-match by the nation's FA (at the top level, at least).

Now, this of course will he controversial. There can be injuries where the injury occurs away from where the contact is (example: getting your foot stomped can cause your knee to twist and bust it). But they leave so much up to the opinion of officials, whats so different with this? If you are overacting to get me to think a challenge was worse than it was, why can't I punish you? Just the rule being in the books would cut down on rolling about. These are pro footballers- if they can take less pain than the average 12 year old something's very wrong.


In addition, I would grant a one warning rule about surrounding the referee. If the referee orders you to back away, or gives a designated signal (such as waving you away with his arms, to overcome the language barrier) all players must back away from the referee immediately or face yellow cards. The referee will then call over the players he wishes to speak to, or the team's captain can request to approach (a simple "May I speak?"). If the captain can't approach (such as if he's been brought down in a tackle) one player, no more,  may fulfill his place. This would cut down on players surrounding referees and influencing calls.

The more they lose the less confidence they have. Their squad is thin anyway. They will play youngsters who get experience and then they do well. Losing is best for them

Post by: TheRam on September 27, 2012, 06:46:46 PM
Before you hang me hear me out...

LFC have a thin squad right now due to a lack of getting players in as well as losing players to injuries. The worst thing that can happen to them is having more games to play. Now they have to worry about fielding squads for EPL, League Cup, and Europa League matches. Congrats to them for being involved in those two extra competitions, but they are going to wear their players out and all their results will likely suffer.

Some may say it is a good problem to have but not when you are 18th in the league with first team players getting suspended and injured.

Why are you so assed about them?

The reason the united fans started that was because some Kopites ran in front of them doing aeroplanes

So you didn't hear the united fans singing "where's your famous Munich chant" then?

Or when the stadium announcer asked the fans to sit down, they started chanting "if it wasn't for Scousers we could stand" chant???  A direct reference to Hillsborough.

Let's be honest, most (not all) football/futbol/soccer fans like to keep an eye on their rivals to see how they perform. I have a few L'pool mates so I like to keep tabs on their squad throughout the season just to have a good back and forth banter. I actually kind of admire their optimisim at times thinking that no matter how bad things seem they always think they are one player away from winning the league.

I just think that the worse thing for their season may be them keeping advancing in the league cup b/c their thin squad being forced to play more games will wear them out causing their form to probably decrease further.

That is why I am assed with them.

To right and we've had some really dodgy refs decisions against us for years going back to Clive Thomas in 1977..

I'm not too sure he's defending the indefensible, but if he feels he's being hard done by regarding not getting penalties when he feels he should, then he's got a right to voice his concerns. Moyes did it not so long ago (and I feel he had a point). Not that I think it'll do us any favours. Yesterdays penalty shout seems to have backed that up.

It depends on the circumstances.  Maybe he knew they'd be filming and decided to stick it up there so that the charity could see that it was being used, rather than kept in the attic.  His wife might have really, really liked the picture and wanted it hung up so that it reminded her of him whilst he's away at all hours.  You never know, there may have been a variety of reasons why he has that picture of himself up there, but on the face of it, it does make you think it's a bit egotistical.

I thought I'd pop this in here, rather than start a new thread.  A Finnish newspaper website that I read each day has had an article about Jari Litmanen posted today.  It covers a few things but the focus is on his time at Liverpool, and the fact that he struggled to get any game time despite playing well when given the opportunity.

An interesting read in general anyway.

http://www.hs.fi/english/article/What+exactly+went+down+with+Jari+Litmanen+at+Anfield/1329104873532 (http://www.hs.fi/english/article/What+exactly+went+down+with+Jari+Litmanen+at+Anfield/1329104873532)

Quote
In the documentary, Litmanen explains how assistant manager Phil Thompson once told him that he had played a good game but unfortunately could not be given a start in the next match.  “There was something mystical about it, and I never did find out what it was. I always tried to do the job well, but it seemingly made no difference.”
“But - it is just a game, isn't it”, Litmanen declares, and he seems to believe what he says.

Perhaps Jari Litmanen has forgiven Liverpool FC for wasting his time and talents.
I have not.

Last week - at home with Gerrards was pretty nauseating, Brendan Rogers telling whoppers about Andy Carroll's part to play in the squad and how it would take a huge offer to take him away from the club, and further nasueating comments about all players being 'like sons' to him.

This week - so boring I turned off and won't be watching again.  Rogers seems to lack a little zip to his personality.

There is quite a bit of look at my car, look at my watch, check my massive pad, going on to.

I agree. First week was comedy gold, I watched it 3 times and pissed myself at how pathetic they are. The second one was just boring, except for Rodgers' 'Inspirational' team talks.

I hate the way commentator's always say that if there's one player in the Premier League that deserves a title winning medal in his career then it's him.

 Pardon? He had the chance to make a move to a better side and win the league with a team that earns the right to win it, and he bottled it. He chose to remain with a side that has got gradually worse as the years have gone on.

So fuck him.

Liverpool just basically offered him a bit more than Chelsea were going to didn't they?

I remember Rick Parry on SSN that day the little curly haired whopper ''Stevens decided to stay, he really loves the club''.  No lad, he loves the fact you have just doubled his wages.

Gobshite.

It must've been particularly funny when the shirtburners sheepishly turned up in the club shop a week later to buy a new Gerrard shirt. :)

There were rumours at the time that some gangster's heavies had a quiet word with him too.

Either way, and Liverpool fans love to forget this ever happened, he was off to Chelsea until he realised he'd become some sort of pariah.
