  1. I was lucky enough to see Keegan's first game for us against Forest at Anfield when he scored in the first 10 minutes. I still think he's probably the most transformative signing in my time watching. The previous season we'd scored 42 goals in 42 games and were never in contention for the league. His first season we scored 64 times and missed out on the title by one point. The following season we won it, our first title for 7 years. Like others, I was devastated when he left, but we got a huge sum of money for him and spent only two-thirds of it on the King.

  3. Popped along to that Palestinian solidarity/Stop bombing Gaza/Stop slaughtering children, you evil bastards protest outside the Town Hall earlier. A half decent turn out, I’d say about a hundred altogether and noisy, lots of chanting and people beeping their horns as they went past.

  4. I'm voting Labour because I fucking hate the tories with every fibre of my being but fuck me they are making it hard. It's like voting for how much shit you will allow someone to shove in your mouth, both disgusting but at least one doesn't have worms in it.

  5. I don’t have all the details but apparently the police have agreed that he was indeed helping the woman up! No mention of what’s going on with the peeping but he’s still in the care home. I’ll have to bring it up to her mum around the dinner table. “So he’s not groped anyone, but what about all those windows he’s been looking in?”

  8. Kuyt went on to win the Turkish league, the cup and super cup. After he was done conquering Turkey, he single handedly delivered Feynoord their first league title since ‘99, with a hat-trick in his last ever game. He also went on to win 104 caps for the Netherlands.

  16. He wasn't limited at all. He played a role for the club and played it extremely well. Limited players don't often Captain their club for years and lift trophies regularly. He was a very good player and far better than a lot of people give him credit for.

  20. My guess... Lucas would have been a cult hero and his substitute appearances the following season would have been met with cheers rather than groans; the big question is whether that improved atmosphere would have been enough to convert a couple of those disappointing draws of 2008/09 into wins.

  21. Cheryl is one bitter old bitch who supports Tranmere as well. Dave Prentice did an article a few years ago explaining that Everton have never used the Liver Bird on their shirts or any club correspondence. These medals were made and given to Everton when they won the league that year by Liverpool City Council because the football league never made winners medals at that point. As usual Everton cried their arsed off about it until LCC stepped in to appease them. After that the league started making medals for the league winners. At that time the league consisted of about 12 clubs.

  23. What's their point. Their badge is Everton lock up and they called themselves Everton and wear blue, that's who they are and who they chose to be. We are Liverpool named for the city itself so wear the city's emblem. We are liverpool they are a small region within Liverpool, its only right the City's namesake is the true successful representation of the city and all its people.

  26. The real leaders of the Labour Party. They're now showing who's boss. They want a return on the money. This Labour friends of Israel nonsense should be disbanded and banned. Its a cancer within the party and its divisive. Especially as Israel are currently facing charges of genocide at the Hague.

  27. Kenny used to name the team at the last possible moment. Never let the players know any earlier than that as he wanted to avoid complacency and to keep everyone on their toes. When he does it he's shrewd, but when I follow suit I'm just a disorganised clown apparently.

  28. Monday Feb 5: Lots of talk about the Arsenal celebrations and loads of people are completely missing the point. “They’ve won, why shouldn’t they celebrate”. Oh fuck off. They should celebrate, of course they should. We’d have celebrated too. We celebrate after every win and no-one enjoys a celebration more than Klopp. The problem with Arsenal is the WAY they celebrate, it always just makes me want to die of cringe, and it’s not just me and it’s not just Reds. Everyone takes the piss out of Arsenal and there’s a good reason for it. It just all feels so forced and lame, especially Arteta. That cunt does not have an authentic bone in his body. He’s the anti-Klopp. He’s worse than Sadio when it comes to stealing celebrations too. Little bit of Mourinho running down the line, a touch of the Guardiola’s sideline antics and a big dollop of the Klopp fist pumps. Fuck that guy, he’s just an embarrassing little ex Everton knobhead. It’s not just him though, it’s the players. It’s the Arsenal culture and it has been for years. They haven’t moved on from the “4th placed trophy dressing room selfies” and everything about them just makes me squirm. So yeah, celebrate all you like, but act like you’ve been there before because otherwiseyou look like a lower league club who’s just sprung an FA Cup upset. That Odegard with the cameraman was pure cringe. You know what that was? It was the kind of thing players do when they’re acting daft when they’re doing the lap of honour after they’ve just won a trophy. I could see Sadio or Kostas doing something like that, but not after winning a fucking league game. Fuck off Arsenal you sad cunts, you deserve every bot of ridicule you’re getting and it’s not about being the ‘celebration police’ it’s more about being the ‘cringey bastard police’. I hate the fact that this was what we served up for Klopp’s last game against Arteta.

  30. Even now, if you happen to see an old clip or two of him playing for us, it's astonishing, what he did and tried to do. He was constantly inventive, just all over the place and yet always disciplined and always aware. I'm not having a dig at Mo but if Keegan had been blessed with his speed and skill he would have been even better, because, for example, he would have trained and trained with his right foot until he was dangerous with both feet. He was his own best critic. No one thought more about his game, his ability, his potential and his physical powers, and he wouldn't rest when it came to the effort to make the best of himself. There was a spooky aura about him on a pitch - I've never seen a player whose mood seemed to affect a stadium as much as him. If he was in a great mood, it spread like wildfire, but it was the same if he had a cob on. During his last season, when he was chronically angry about Joey Jones not being Alec Lindsay, there were times when everyone in the front rows of the stands were on edge whenever he was near. But as has been said above, what a wonderful last performance for us. The romanticising of his barcode relationship has always niggled, but he's said some nice things in recent years about his bonds with us, and he's one of the true greats of the club.

  31. I still believe he was our most important player in my lifetime. He was the catalyst who drove us from an ordinary side to an extraordinary one. Kenny came in and did a fantastic job, as did many others, but the platform would not have been there without Keegan.

  32. He came to a charity night at our local ale house back in the day, to accept a cheque on behalf of a local charity he was representing. Could’ve easily turned up, picked up the cheque, had a few photo’s taken and left, but he didn’t. He was there well over an hour after the presentation, and although people didn’t have picture taking mobile phones then, there were a fair few who had brought camera’s and he didn’t turn anyone down, spoke to anyone who spoke to him and signed dozens of autographs. There’s a photo somewhere of my missus sitting on his lap, she was working behind the bar, and he made sure he thanked the bar staff personally as they’d worked that night but donated their pay to the charity. Really top fella.

  33. Work-rate. Incisiveness. Nous. I don't ask for much. This is how it's gonna be. Build from the ground up. Note the early kick-off time. We got back on the bike against Burnley at the weekend. Granted it was tentative in the first half and we only really woke up in the second, but we merited the 3 points in the end. As we play before City, we have a chance to extend our lead at the top of the table once again. We wouldn't expect them to drop points at home to Chelsea on Saturday evening, so just take it one game at a time and just stay ahead and see what happens. It's weird how they always seem to have games in hand when they are chasing. Brentford at the GTech Community Stadium then. It's a crap name for an OK stadium, and the problem with new builds is that they very rarely have a name of their own from the beginning. Bolton's ground is still referred to as The Reebok even though the sportswear firm has nothing more to do with them. You wonder what Arsenal's ground will be known as should Emirates ever ditch them. A game there is a much tougher test than Burnley at home, particularly for us as we haven't matched up especially well when travelling to Brentford. They have a directness about them which is not Burnley (Dyche era) or Wimbledon (any era) alehouse shit. They can play a bit of football in the last third, it's more how they choose to get there that is a conundrum for teams such as ours that likes to squeeze the pitch vertically and press higher up the pitch. Last year's fixture, our first game of 2023, was an absolute shambles from the men in red (wearing their green away kit). Defensively we were dreadful all game. Virg looked more off the pace than any time we've seen him in Liverpool colours, and Ibou suffered from a mixture of his own clumsiness plus not being dominant physically. Kostas was overrun constantly. Darwin should have put us ahead early on when he got onto an inch-perfect through-ball and rounded David Raya, only to find Ben Mee on the line in the only place where the defender could have done anything about it. After that, we became sloppy and it led to a succession of corners. Brentford took the lead when one of those corners wasn't dealt with, with the ball bouncing off the unfortunate Ibou and into his own net. The rest of that first half was the dictionary definition of 'shambles' as I mentioned earlier, as Brentford scored another from a corner (through Wissa, with the goal confirmed by GLT despites Ali's valiant attempt to keep the ball out) and also had 2 goals disallowed from offside after we yet again failed to deal with their corners. We were beleaguered and half time couldn't come soon enough as 2-0 did not tell the full story. Jurgen rang the changes, bringing off Virg (who it turns out had picked up an injury - physical and not just to his pride), Kostas and Harvey. Darwin had a goal disallowed for a marginal offside before Ox got us a goal back, planting a header low into the corner from Trent's fine left-footed ball in from the right. Any chance that we might claw back to equalise was dampened as we became scrappy once again, and was finally extinguished when Ibou was outmuscled (possible tripped?) by Mbeumo, who ran clear to fire past Ali. We were hopeless, and it was an indicator of our away form for the first couple of months in 2023. The defence was all over the place, the midfield had no legs and the attack was inconsistent. Whenever I write these, I have no idea who will be available or, more pertinently, who will drop out. A flu bug was going round the squad last week so there may be others who are not able to train fully this week. I would hope that Ali, Joe and Dom are available again. Ibou should be back after his 1-match ban. I would also hope Conor is back and he is able to re-find his focus after a very difficult couple of weeks off the pitch. Mo is apparently a week away but if possible, I would save him until the League Cup final and even then, only as a sub. Trent, Dom and Thiago have all suffered minor setbacks after their returns from injury recently. Whoever is available, we really need to try and make a decent fist of our trip to West London for once. The season before last saw us draw 3-3 in a game we didn't game-manage properly. Maximum motivation and attitude, but especially concentration and application, from first minute to last is an absolute requirement. 3 points please. Get it done!

  40. I had to laugh when they moved Jones to fullback. Its great that he has that versatility and he did well there. It just that he seems to get further and further away from his original style of play. He was a viscous attacking weapon, practically an inside forward at times. His trajectory went from - Attacker - Attacker who is under instructions to recycle the ball, cut inside and not take risks, - Midfielder - Defensive Midfielder (for a time) and has now had his debut as full back. I'm half dreading Jones reaching his final destination during an acute goalkeeping crisis. "You can waggle you hips can't you lad? Do the Dudek Curtis! Do the Dudek!! I still want to say he's my favorite player but he isn't the same player any more through no fault of his own. Its a great tribute to the lads adaptability and determination though.
