  • Great to see Alisson and Matip back, which will undoubtedly strengthen our defence but Salah is a big loss upfront. Hopefully, Origi can add to his Barcelona exploits! Come on you Reds!

    PHEW! That was an extremely hard fought 3 points but sitting pretty 8 points clear!

  • It was seat of your pants time towards the end but we held on to get all three points and six wins on the bounce this season, what a start! Five points clear at the top and City know they have one hell of a fight on their hands this season!

    Fair points, we will really see when fixtures pileup and injuries start to take their toll. Although we have survived losing arguably the best goalkeeper in the league. I think it will be a different matter if we lose Firmino or Mane also Salah. We didn’t have them in preseason and it really showed. As soon as they returned we were back on track.

    I thought we were very impressive, in deference and attack. I like the Van Dijk – Matip pairing and in front of them Fabinho is awesome. Front three unplayable. Klopp was right we didn’t need to strengthen in the summer

    • I still think we needed1-2 big signings. We will see when we are playing every 3/4 days as well as travelling over Europe and participating in the club world cup too…

      We haven’t really played anyone yet – not anyone we weren’t expected to beat and only playing once a week. I am not saying that we were wrong not to invest in the squad with all…[Read more]

  • It was coming!

  • We need to convert all this dominance!

    That’s brilliant that Sky are providing highlight videos on YouTube for the 3 o’clock kickoffs!

    What a howler by Adrian despite his heroics in midweek! We are really going to miss Allison. Relieved to get 3 points on the road after our exertions in Istanbul. It was well and truly squeaky bum time at the end there!

    • Fortunately, Ings missed a sitter late on but Goal Difference may be important if we can keep up the challenge like we did last year. City have started well and the likes of Arsenal, Man Utd and Spurs have invested in bringing quality to their sides.
      I know we have quality in our team too but I do think we should have invested too. Brewster may…[Read more]

    What a night indeed! Tottenham’s constant diving made the match especially tense but a good referee stood firm. This makes up for the league but next year I want us to really go for the league. Not that I am saying we didn’t this year. One loss all season and we still lose out. Unbelievable. But for now the sun is shining and this victory mak…[Read more]

    Sickens me to say it but for one night only on Wednesday night I am a massive Man Utd fan. I doubt they will do us a favour. That embarrassment of a club will probably be blown away by City but living in hope some points will be dropped!

    Title winning football last night, no doubt about that!

  • What a match this is! Ever dependable Mane 2 – 1!

  • Slight advantage City now. Rock solid at the back most games but really lacking up front and in midfield. It’s not that we have lost any, just these draws maybe costing us the title. Nine games to go and among them Spurs and Chelsea, but the rest against so called lesser teams. We need to get our scoring boots on whoever we play.

  • Still top and our goal difference much improved. Looks like a two horse race now and my money is on the Reds!

    • I really hope so… There are still 10games to go and we haven’t exactly played well up front in quite a few games. City have a superior Goal Difference too and similar games as us to get through too.
      We only have a 1pt Safety cushion and MIST match at least City’s result in the remaining 10 league fixtures to win the EPL. Any dropped points will…[Read more]

  • Just came across this comment online: \”What a difference Wijnaldum has on the Liverpool team. When he was injured Liverpool lost the runners in behind the opposition defence and lost midfielders driving with the ball. Underrated!\” It is so true! I have always been a big Wijnaldum fan!

    • I can’t say I am a ‘big’ fan of Gini but I do think he is often overlooked and under-rated for the work he does. He doesn’t score enough for me to be a ‘big’ fan and in some ways he is ‘similar’ to Hendo in that he does a lot of work, doesn’t score enough for a midfielder and only gets recognition when they are ‘missed’. By that, I mean whilst…[Read more]

  • Just read your comment BAMozzy he is suffering from an abdominal strain

  • Where is Shaqiri? He seems to have gone off the radar in recent weeks, which is a pity because I really like him. Good to see Wijnaldum back. Come on you Reds let\’s get back on top of the table where we belong!

  • James Holmes posted a new activity comment 9 months ago

    Yes! Let\’s put this rollercoaster to bed and get one more!

    • At least 1 more…
      Zaha is causing problems against Milner so maybe we will need more…
      Come on you REDS!!! YNWA

    Nightmare! We need to get our act together and quickly!

    • Palace are never an Easy team to beat – at least for us. They were the last team to beat us at Anfield in the league too. Its not as if we haven’t had chances but the loss of TAA and lack of pace of Milner has cost us here – still time and now back level so hopefully we can go on and win now…
      Come on you REDS!!! YNWA
