Maybe it's just me but I don't think the keeper situation is particularly dire. 

 

I think all the good keepers are picked now, unless you want to go back to an era only Stringy will remember which will have its own problems. 

 

Be interesting to see who the last keeper picked is. I made a quick list of keepers I thought were acceptable and only came up with seven of them. Like Lee though that was just off the top of my head.

You're probably right and, on performances for Liverpool, I would agree totally, but then it's based on their career. I don't think the worst keeper to be picked will be a complete no-hoper. Though Stig does have a soft spot for Adam Bogdan in drafts so.... 

Oh mate trust me I have a list of the 11 best keepers to have played for us and I will still somehow manage to pick the worst one

Same goes for the likes of Billy Liddell, who has been picked. With players like that you just have to go off what your dad, grandad, etc. told you. I definitely wanted Liddell, for his versatility as much as his ability.

Not really, everyone will have different views on how they can rate players. If you’re going back before the sixties or even to the twenties and thirties like the player I’m thinking of then you can’t moan if people don’t know enough about them to rate them.

 

Besides which, not everyone is from Liverpool and has parents and grandparents who were brought up supporting us. Each to their own.

There's been some decent, international class keepers who have played for us. At their best, a number of them were pretty good. Problem is we've had a habit of buying the crackpot ones that, when they make mistakes, the mistakes tend to be catastrophic.

 

Woe betide whoever ends up with a certain hairless left back

If anyone picks that cunt they are banned from drafts. In-fact the forum. For good

I’m actually watching Liverpool V West Ham from 1976 now on LFCTV. 

 

Emlyn Hughes just had a goal disallowed from a free kick after their keeper handled outside the area.

 

Better than Flashscores this.

Fair enough. I certainly wouldn’t moan if people didn’t know enough about one or some of my players to rate them. In my opinion, drafts are just a bit of fun, so getting votes and winning isn’t really that important. The thing is, some people won’t even know enough about the 60s and 70s players to properly rate them. Posters on the FF, not necessarily participants in this draft, have previously said they’ve not even watched the 1965 and 1974 FA Cup Finals.

Yeah I used to have all the cup finals on VHS and watch them all the time. I can vividly remember getting home from school when I was about ten and my dad had got the ‘77 cup final against Monchengladbach. I was made up.

 

Had all the programmes as well from my uncle who went to them all but left them in the loft when I moved out of my mum and dads and they left them there when they sold the house.

I loved this series of videos. I had all sorts, not just the Liverpool ones.

Get used to it mate! Your potential picks never last and if you think you have got some gem no one else remembers then forget about it. Everyone else will have them on their list. 

 

Litmanen feeding Bobby and Suarez is pure sex. What a pain in the arse to play against those two together would be.

McManaman was going to be my next pick. Second choice was Litmanen. Baaastards!

It's the hope that kills you.

 

I don't plan I just look at what's been picked and pick someone that's not. Probably why I've only won 1 draft out of about 100.

Kept me up all last night, this. I couldn’t sleep through fear of getting the players I wanted and not having anything to moan about.

I've always thought McManaman is an underrated player among Liverpool fans - he was probably my favourite player back in the 90s, even ahead of Fowler.

    • Can I just reiterate that Martin Tyler is a cunt. He will have been up since 4am practising his 'Maaaaaarsheeeeaaalll' scream. 
    • Everton player obstructs a defender. Didn’t look anything in it to be honest, but would have been excellent for the fume if West Ham had equalised.
    • Goal line technology is perfect, offsides a tad more complicated in some cases but generally could be handled by technology. Everything else those incompetent officials seem to be fucking up royally.    If they're this bad with the video technology available, then it goes to show just how utterly bad they were before, although that won't be news to most football fans.    Today will be interesting, this and the city game are the ones that I've been concerned about. This one because let's be honest here, the mancs spent years getting favourable decisions from officials. VAR has proven so far it's anything but logical and as previous posters and myself have said, is just one ref covering another refs arse.    I don't know which of the idiots they have in the VAR booth today but it's them that might fuck us over.     
    • Not like the English to make an absolute meal of something so easy. 
    • Jürgen Klopp has achieved many things in his time at Liverpool, but a win at Old Trafford is one box that he is yet to tick.

      Under the German’s tenure, the Reds have registered at least one league away victory against  Man City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal.
        Currently the away record against Man United sits at two draws and one defeat. 

      The two teams also met in the Europa League in Klopp’s first season where Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners on aggregate with the second leg locked at 1-1.

       Liverpool’s last victory on the red side of Manchester came five and a half years ago (3-0).

      Liverpool head back to the home of their arch-rivals in fine form, having not dropped a point all season from their eight league games.

      In contrast, Man United are in somewhat of no-mans-land currently sitting in 14th position with just nine points on the board.

      But as we have seen many times in this fixture, ladder positions doesn’t mean a lot when it comes to deciding the end result.

      While some managers will try to downplay the record, Klopp has embraced it, seeing it as another challenge for his highly ambitious squad.

      The Mirror reported Jürgen as saying:

      “Winning there would be a big next step. It’s not a step we have to make otherwise we cannot develop, no. 

      “But, of course, for our own history with me it is obviously something we have not achieved yet.

      “This team wrote their own story and made their own history and this would be another step.   "But we cannot make it by simply talking about it.

      “ We have to go there and play the best football we can play, with the biggest balls, being ready for each challenge, fighting for every ball, all that stuff. That is what we have to do.”  

      One player who will also be looking to break a drought against this opposition is Mo Salah with the Egyptian yet to score a goal or register a assist in four games.

      Klopp believes it is not a major worry for his star, and just like the team, he would see it as a challenge to embrace with all he has.

      “It is difficult to know what he’s thinking. If someone had told me he’d never scored against United I would have said, ‘Really?’ 

      "I suppose the more you go without scoring against an opponent there may be one moment when you start scoring against them.

      “All these games are big tests. I don’t see it as a specific test for him, but, yes, it is a big test. 

      "And sometimes there will be ‘old-school challenges’ and you have to be ready for them.

      “That is how it is. But there is a reason for these stories, just like our history against United away, such as the stadium or the intensity of the game.”

      Three points for the Reds and a brace for Mo would certainly equate to a pretty special Sunday.
