Chris Kirkland has been named goalkeeper coach for the Liverpool ladies. Congratulations to him on his first job in coaching and good on him for respecting the ladies game!

Del Bosque, former Real Madrid manager, says that nobody in Liverpool's squad gets in Real Madrid's team.

Are they trying to fire us up deliberately?

7 out of 11 players for Man United today against Chelsea, signed for the club whilst Alex Ferguson was in charge. He retired 6 years ago (Sanchez, Pogba, Matic and Herrera the exceptions) .

Against Brighton, 7 out of 11 players for Liverpool signed for the club whilst Jurgen Klopp was in charge. He's been here 3 years (Lovren, Arnold, Henderson and Firmino the exceptions) .

Never underestimate the power of good recruitment. Klopp is taking us places 👍.

Regarding Tarkowski I am all for it and here is my superstitious reason Why.

I was playing a manager career on my release day copy of FIFA 13, with Oldham Athletic, and I built my team around him. Ended up about 5 seasons down the line, in an FA cup final and 3rd in the Premier League early in the 6th year, I decided to take the Liverpool job and rescue them from relegation by signing in January, yours truly, James Tarkowski to replace the middle aged Martin Skrtel. I took them from 16th to 4th. But here is where it gets good; the next season was the 18/ 19 season and I of course made Tarkowski my rock at the back even though he was rated 68 because he was still a beast (I mean I'd spent half a decade developing him) and I took Liverpool from 4th to winning the title! I subsequently won the league 2 more seasons on the spin before I had to return to Oldham to stop them from being relegated.

We just finished 4th lads and now we might sign Tarkowski! So next season, put your house on the Premiership docking in Liverpool! Tarkowski is going to bring it home for the next 3 years lads! Forget his actual ability, this has been written in the stars since about December 2012! 😂.

To any and all football fans based in the Midlands like myself!

Being so far away from Liverpool often means we never get a chance to meet our heroes. So I'm just letting you all know that the NEC in Birmingham have a Collector mania Comic-Con event in June (2nd and 3rd) where Liverpool FC have a pretty strong representation.

Gordon Banks, John Barnes, Robbie Fowler and Kevin Keegan are all there and you can pay around £90 to have a photo with all 4 of them. The only problem is that there is a stain on the Camera man's lens that might show up in the photo. Oops, sorry! Not a stain, it's just Michael Owen. £15-30 per individual autograph as well. No prizes for guessing who wants £30 😑

Maybe you are not a Liverpool fan? Well Geoff Hurst, Trevor Brooking and the 1980 West Ham side will also be present.

From other sports, you can also meet Kevin Peterson (though he wants £50 for a signature), Phil the power Taylor and Frank Bruno.

Being so far from the great City of Liverpool, I never really get the opportunity to just run into these guys on the street so this is an exciting opportunity for myself. Just thought I'd pass on the message in case anyone else was interested.

There will also be actors from Lord of The Rings, Star Wars etc if you are more interested in that stuff like my brother is. I go quite regularly and whilst I don't dress up, it is a great day out. £12 parking, £10 entry ticket and then it's up to you what else you spend. There are usually a few hundred displays/ stools though selling cool memorabilia, collectors items or clothes. I just want to meet Digger and God personally!

Anyone know if Thiago is mates with Cavani? Have a look at his tackle on Richarlison from last night in Brazil vs Uruguay 😬.

I hope Henderson does the sensible thing and retires from International football after the Euros. Milner did at a similar age and he's stayed at the top of his game into his mid-30's as a result.

Hendo gets no respect in the England set up anyway. Best captain in world football isn't even captain of his country. Walk away Hendo. Scouse not English.

I keep seeing the stats banded about regarding how many goals Klopp's Liverpool have conceded with and without Van Dijk.

This is just a prime example of statistical nonsense. If you look at our defence pre-Van Dijk it was far cry from what it is today.

The most used defence by Klopp pre-Van Dijk was Mignolet behind a 4 of Clyne, Matip, Lovren and Milner. Others who played include Karius, Klavan, Sakho, Skrtel and Moreno.

Even in the midfield, we had players like Lucas and Can due to Henderson struggling massively with Plantar Fasciitis in those early Klopp years.

Fast forward to the Van Dijk era, and in almost coincided with the emergence of Trent, Robertson breaking into the team, and Gomez making the position his own after his own injury difficulties. 6 months later we signed Alisson and Fabinho to had greater protection in front of and behind the defence. Henderson found his fitness and started playing 40+ games a season again.

Now we have Thiago in the midfield to help us dominate the ball and in theory do a lot less defending.

I guess my point is, these context-less statistical overviews of Liverpool without Van Dijk are thinly veiled attacks on the rest of the team that we can't cope without him. The reality is that this crop of players have never been asked to so to blame them for the goals conceded by a completely different squad, is just shocking journalism at best.

Please don't buy into this fear mongering. We have elite players all over the park and Van Dijk was just 1 part of a well oiled machine that deserves a lot more respect as a unit.

Just saw this morning that Salah has won back possession in the final 3rd on 32 occassions this season; more than any other player.

Salah 32
Kante 31
Redmond 28
Richarlison 26

(Madness that Kante is in that list when he plays predominantly in the middle 3rd! )

Not sure how relevant it is. Just surprised me he was ahead of Bobby and Mane who seem to be universally accepted as the harder working forwards in our side.

Looks like we'll get to see Curtis Jones and Rafa Camacho tomorrow night. Possibly Ki-Jana Hoever as well. Hopefully we get through and we can see Rhian Brewster in the rounds that follow.

Exciting time to be a reds supporter. I said the other day that Klopp will need to make some big decisions regarding our younger players and tomorrow night may be their first opportunity to prove that Klopp can save himself some money and invest in the players already in our academy.

Much as we may get excited by interest in first team ready guys like Eder Militao, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Timo Werner and Abdulkadir Omur it is always good to see a manager trust in unproven youth instead of splashing big money out straight away.
