hey guys none of you know me i do not post often at all maybe 5 posts in the last 8ish years that I have been reading this site, I posted after the arsenal game and I just can't believe the what I have seen on this site that is becoming more frequent from some of regulars what ever happened to supporting your club for fun or for the love of the game win lose or draw?

what happened to supporting the club and manager at a time where they need it most? even the players we as the club fans have shown a complete lack of support since fergy left, i say we as it seems like the fans who support are the minority at the moment, I have seen a lot of posts blaming the manager for the 1-1 draw with arsenal personally i disagree how can someone on the right wing stop someone playing on the opposite side of the pitch i do not know maybe i am missing something but when someone would be 60 yards away from play he can't do alot.

Personally i think we are slowly moving in the right direction jose wouldn't have been my first choice but he would have defiantly been my 3rd choice, proven winner, he knows how to get his sides over the line it was his second season that he won the league with chelsea so let's see how it pans out isit boy? .

i think our main problem is passion and commitment from players i see it in Ander, mata toni and bailly, maybe de gea but that's it rooney is past it, ibra is doing well for a 35 year old in the hardest league in the world, martial needs to work harder and show some commitment on the pitch, think rashford needs a rest, pogba seems like he needs the team around him and set up for him to produce his best, which should only happen to an attacker as they win more games than anyone, miki is a odd one we shall see but he looked a fantastic player last season, carrick is producing but again we shouldn't be relying on a 35 year old very under rated player he has been fantastic for us, shaw needs to look at him self in the mirror and understand this is his shot to fulfil his potential and not waste it, smalling jones rojo all back up players at best can do a job here and there but shouldn't be in the starting 11. one of our biggest problems has been the recruitment of players we have bought players and made the worse or the teams they have come from were set up for them to succeed think we need to identify player that will improve the way we play and not sign players that are good at playing a differnt way it doesn't work for us.

sorry for the long post guys need that.

Ed a few months back you posted a link about moyes an his syle an a lpad of info about him yhink it was on the gaurdian if u still have the link could u share again please {Ed007's Note - I don't know what Ed posted it, sorry. Have you tried using the search function?}


1.) Yeah used that first couldn't find it thought cheers anyway {Ed007's Note - I'll have a hunt about and see if I can see anything.}

2.) Scouting-system-that-reveals-david-moyes-mind-8756011

^^ try searching for that

Posted this already Ed, but might not have got through filters?


Try above link {Ed007's Note - I think that was it lol and it was me that originally posted it!! Sorry about that Dio.}

4.) A great insight into how they work no wonder they say he dithers with that many players under scrutiny

5.) Hopefully that means by January he has all of his targets identified and be able to get some of them given the claims of the limitless transfer kitty.

how much more is there to read about on this site if your a scouser so liverpool bais this site I go to player profiles 90% liverpool ones I go to youth profiles just all liverpool players I go to player ratings just all about liverpool how about include all the teams in there or take the link off the united and other club page as its pretty usless


1.) Agreed

Me {Ed007's Note - The guys only do profiles by requests so I'd say that it's more LFC fans that are asking about players rather than whining like little bitches and looking where their next complaint can come from. It's quite simple, you could request profiles, do some yourself or if you do't like the sites that much then don't visit them.}

2.) The sites on the whole have a vast preponderance of Liverpool supporters, they also tend to expect better quality players to join their club
As the ed said the vast majority are asked for in the player profiles there is no agenda we can all ask for a profile to be done

3.) Oooooh burned :) well done bond


4.) End of the day a lot of the ed's are Liverpool fans, they founded the site and invited other users to become ed's. Its hardly a conspiracy.

If people want profiles then go ask for them, its not brain surgery.

Decent center half but not a great/ world class one, we are better with him than without with our current options. At the same time I think we could improve on him but we won't he is just bout good enough, Shappy unless I missed it I haven't seen anyone suggest what you claim but personally for me the manager was at fault for that lost.

the issue for me is we shouldn't be signing a back up RB we should be signing a 1st choice RB, i defended bissaka as much as i can he just isn't good enough for a top club yes he can slide tackle usually as he has to because he is a bad defender he can't read the game, can't position him self doesn't stop crosses and the less said about is forward ability the better awful player.

Im pretty sure I seen a interview with owen and he said that the night before he was meant to sign for someone fergie rang him and up till then even owen him self didn't no about a move to united was possible so unless the interview I watch owen was lying or the personal telling you is either psychic or is fergy him self

AJH I can understand your point about a negative spin as I have said previously he was the best left back in the league last season but we also need to add context and compare our players to the best in the league and Europe because that's where we need to be or should be aiming for I was happy that shaw improved in fact very happy but he still isn't quite there yet in some aspects of his game and he needs to continually improve although he was the best last season most other full backs were out of form last season and if your being honest with your self and again although shaw was the best in the league he wouldn't have got in our previous teams with last seasons performances although decent if it was evra it would have been an average season, same for robertson of liverpool, cancelo of city and so on again i'm not knocking him i just tried to add some perspective yes he was good but not on the level of the elite players in his position when they have average to bad seasons they get shaw stats from last year. And so far it looks like he won't have as good season this season.

Red Whiskey/ Shappy it totally makes sense to let new players have a run and they do definitely need it to help bed in, at the same time you also need results and need to play your best/ inform team so for me the error is playing pogba on the left. granted he had those assists so far.

With his contract situation, his contribution on the field since arriving, the drama and his efforts on the pitch has shown us enough of what he thinks and has produce for everyone to see. There can't be a future for club and pogba to excel together, so I think both Mason and sancho should be playing both are interchangeable giving us more fluidity and pace in and around Ronaldo and Bruno, playing to Brunos strengths and giving us slightly more width. Yes both Mason and Sancho would cut in side but generally near the oppositions box where pogba does it far deeper.

So your both kinda right if you both go half way to seeing each others points boys.

The person who said that about shaw was me, your more than welcome to name me if you like but it won't change the fact what I said was correct shaws best ever season was marginally better than Robertsons worse liverpool season, and around half as good as Robertsons best season i am not wrong the stats prove it

shaw best ever - 10 clean sheets, 5 assists, 1 goal,

Robertson - 19 clean sheets, 11 assists, 0 goal,

Just because a player improves doesn't mean he is the best, yes he starts for England but is there a world class LB who is challenging him nope Englands left back options aren't great players. I did agree that he was the best in the league last season but he wouldn't have been the best with those performances the season before or season before that so my comment still stands up.

AJH I think your missing kens point with Shaw, yes he was in the pfa team of the year and it was his best ever season of his career which statically wise was around half if not more as good as Robertson best ever season for liverpool, personally for me Shaw only got in due to mostly everyone who is better than him had an off season last season.

Which meant Shaw deserved his place he was the best lb in the league but it was only marginly better than Robertson season who many would describe as a bad season for Robertson, so putting everything into perspective I can see kens point.

Rosspique other fans could spin that the other way and say you are not a fan of the club if you accept what has been served up by ole not just this season since he took over. how about let's not alienate any fan for their opinion and what they want for the club that differs from your views and what you want.

Also some fans supports clubs, some fans support players and some support managers and some support all of them, me personally I support the club and the players I want the best managers to make the players better but ultimately as long as the manager is good/ competent, then i couldn't care less who it was.

I think ole has taken this team as far as he can has he been successful, I think off the field yes on the field no, no need to explain why we all have eyes.
