Today we attended the @LFCSupCom fan's forum with @spiritofshankly to voice our concerns about the extortionate ticket prices at @LFC

After the meeting we've regretfully made the decision that we will not take any flags onto The Kop until we have dialogue with @LFC.

The Basel match is looming and we want to support the team to the hilt. It's time the club supported us.


In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

half time against Stoke.

Possession against the Stokites is 50/50

And neither side has had a single shot on target.

And in our last premiership game, versus Palace, we had one shot on target (for Lambert's goal in the second minute).

So all told, in the league, we have now not had one shot on target, in something like 135 minutes of football.

So for two hours and 15 minutes, not a single shot threatened the opposition's goal!

We must be close to a Liverpool record.

At last! Liverpool have the lead and it's some wonderful reactive play from Johnson. Gerrard swings in a cross and Lambert's looping header comes off the bar, but Johnson races in to get to the rebound first and the defender heads it into the net.

three points closer to the magic 40.

Stoke will leave Anfield with their tail between their legs.

An excellent summing up of our transfer business from the Summer:

"After Suarez left for Barcelona in a 75 million-pound ($117.6 million) deal, Liverpool signed nine players for 130 million pounds, including big-money deals for Dejan Lovren, Lazar Markovic and Adam Lallana.

Having said previously that Liverpool needed a few players of genuine quality that could improve the first team, the club seemed to embark on a transfer policy designed to swell an under-strength squad rather than fine-tune a title-challenging team with the best talent.

Their rivals took another tack. Arsenal beat them to Chile’s Alexis Sanchez, who shone at the World Cup, Manchester United recruited high-profile names like Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao, while Chelsea brought in Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas.

Of those who arrived in the wake of Suarez’s departure only Rickie Lambert, signed for 4 million pounds, and Javier Manquillo, loaned from Atletico Madrid, started Wednesday’s crucial Champions League qualifier against Ludogorets.

Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

How long before Brendan starts talking about progress again, especially as we've won and kept a clean sheet, which is ironic, as you'd have Stoke down as one of the favourites to be able to take advantage of our inability to defend even the most straight forward set pieces.

Stoke could have scored on several occasions today.  We got lucky.

And as for Brendan speaking of progress....no Tes, the magic word (favoured by all inadequate managers) is transition.

endless transition.

pretty spot on.

I think the failure to bring in a top striker, will be fatal for Rodgers.

Sanchez would have been a great buy.

It's a sad state of affairs, when a top club like Livepool are dependent on a 32 year old makeweight to lead the line.
