The official Liverpool FC thread 2019

Recommended Posts

Won 4-1. Decent attacking performance against a spirited if limited Belgian side. Cracking 2nd goal from AOC which should boost his confidence enormously. Salzburg away will be quite tough as they were v unlucky to lose to Napoli whose keeper played a blinder.

 

Experimental midfield with AOC and Keita did leave gaps which could have been exploited by a better side so I doubt it will be used on a regular basis. Prefer one or the other alongside Fabinho and one of Gini/Hendo/Milner against the 'Park the Bus' teams with the usual 3 playing against stronger sides.

 

Kids won 2-0 as well in the UEFA Youth Tournament.

Two Liverpool fans missed their side's Champions League win over Belgian side Genk on Wednesday - because they travelled to Ghent by mistake.

 

Rob, from London, and Lee, from Leicester, spent around £200 each on train and match tickets only to mistakenly end up 95 miles from where the match was being played.

 

"When we arrived we didn't see any Liverpool supporters, which kind of aroused our suspicions," Rob told BBC Sport.

 

"Then we were sitting having dinner about an hour before kick-off and we said to one of the waiters, who was a Gent supporter, 'we are playing you guys tonight' and he went 'no you're not', and that was when we realised the error of our ways.

 

"We'd had a few beers so driving wasn't possible. Even if we jumped in a cab it was 150 kilometres away so that sealed our fate I'm afraid."


Doh!

Looks like Nike kits from next season. NB lost their Court case against LFC. There may be an appeal so not 100% certain as yet.

 

Application to appeal dismissed....so Nike it is.

Poch really needs a contingency for when histrionics and whining don't get you an advantage, they should spend more time trying to use the ball instead of trying to get opposition players carded. Score flattered Spurs, but they nearly got away with it. 

 

Fabinho was incredible again, Lovren is a worry, Hendo got away with it again. 

 

As an aside that dirty twate Choudhury should still be suspended for the assault on Salah 3 weeks ago.

The Mirror reports that Klopp is threatening to pull Liverpool out of the Carabao cup if the quarter final date is not changed to a date more to his liking because of fixture congestion.

 

That's unacceptable in my opinion.

 

You request a date change but if you don't get it you still play the fixture. Play your kids. Pellegrini had to play 7 kids vs Chelsea away in the FA Cup as we had Real in the CL days later. I never agreed with ManU being allowed to sit out the FA cup one season.

 

If you are successful you will get alot of fixtures to fulfil which sometimes is not to your liking or can be a disadvantage -PLAY THEM ALL.

 

Thoughts?

You can't really use your example as you were not playing in the Club World Championship in Qatar at Christmas also,  and Liverpool are and that is why it's suggested. Klopp has never said this in the circumstances similar to what you are suggesting.

 

I can give you an example of a team in the same situation and that was United in 1999, and it was approved by the FA and in fact encouraged as a good thing for British football. So they pulled out.

 

You might not be aware but it's another big deal trophy.

We're already playing the kids in the cup (5 starters incl 16/17 yr olds plus 2 subs last night for example. Only experienced player on the bench was the keeper 

 

The fact is that we are in Qatar when the 1/4 final is scheduled and the next available midweek date is the date when the semi-final is due to be played so there are actually no dates available at the moment . We already have to re-arrange the West Ham game although this can take place towards the end of the season

 

Hopefully an equitable solution can be found but it may include postponing the semi which obviously will affect someone else or, playing a match during the winter break which (a). may not be allowed and (b). I doubt JK or anyone else would want.

 

IMO JK was right to publicise the issue immediately and not after the event when dates etc are announced. 

I agree with what you say, and we've been in similar situations and nobody wants to have to play a weakened to team and lose out, but he's wrong to threaten to withdraw from a competition. As Pep would say "it is what it is" (tranlates as I'm not <deleted>  happy as it stinks but lets get on with it).

Away to Villa. Maybe we could play it on FIFA 19 or something😀 No shocks as City get a lower league side.
