Hope Shaqiri starts for Saturday game vs Newcastle in view of most of the first team are away for international matches.
Previous 2 matches against Newcastle, Shaqiri assist for Origi's goal from his free kick at St. James' Park and scored one against Newcastle at Anfield. Ya hope he can start this coming match.

Liverpool are the second best team in Europe at throw ins, they retained possession from throw ins under pressure 68.4% of the time. Only FC Midtjylland does this better. Both teams have the same dedicated throw in coach - Gronnemark....

To put it in perspective, Liverpool in the previous season only retained possession from throw-ins under pressure 45.4% of the time (3rd worst side in the PL).

Andy Robertson has improved his throwing distance from 19m to 30m, over 50% difference. Here's the full video talking about throw-ins, very well done by @TifoFootball_.

How you move from Lyon to Real Betis if the knee is not in question? Nabei Fekirrrr
He went for less than 20m euros to Betis was supposed to be sold to Liverpool for 60m euros. If you ask me his knees are dodgy as hell.

Jinxed already!

Actually I don't really care if players win individual awards. Great if they do.

Rather it's trophies that matter more.

Kompany picks Van Dijk ahead of Terry, Rio as PL’s greatest
Date published: Wednesday 11th September 2019 2:41


Vincent Kompany believes Virgil van Dijk is the greatest centre-half in Premier League history.

Liverpool star Van Dijk was named UEFA Player of the Year in August after helping guide the Reds to Champions League glory in Madrid.

The Dutchman has transformed Jurgen Klopp’s side into Premier League title challengers and is considered by some silly people to be the best centre-half in the history of the division.

Kompany can count himself among that group after being asked ahead of his testimonial who he considered to be the greatest.

“I would bring it back to Virgil van Dijk,” he said.

“He’s not been on the scene as long as Terry, Ferdinand, who have been around for a long time. But the signs he’s shown in the last few years show if he had been around longer he’d have been at the top for a long time

“The Liverpool before Van Dijk and after are a completely different setup. I’ll give him that one

There are not many defenders who can walk into a top team and improve the defense by leaps and bounds

Fabio Cannavaro for me. Reads the game well, clean player and even though short, outjumps most players thru sheer grit and determination.

Moi idol.

Glad that the international players came back without injury.
Got to get that three points to keep our distance away from Man C,
and get one over fat Bruce
Not surprise if we start with Shaq.
