Good research Henry.

I was with Liverpool that season, not with the first team, but we all trained at Mellands. I have no recollection of Frank Lock. The only signing I remember was Barry Wilkinson from Bishop Auckland... we were both in the RAF and it had been 'arranged' for us to be stationed at Fazakerley.

Don Welsh was manager and had been heavily connected with Charlton Athletic including a Wembley appearance as a player so that would explain why he signed two players from that team. After the relegation he stayed on for a while but later disappeared from the football map.

It took Liverpool eight seasons to get back to the First Division.

I seem to remember John Evans scoring 5 in one match, not long after joining, but cannot recall who it as against.

OK Ernie, I can remember all Double winning members of Netherton Moss Junior School but not what I had for breakfast. :lol: K

Bill, Fowler and Rush have scored five. I fancy Salah to be the next , maybe this weekend :wink: K

Another poor Euro away performance.
Don't know if its tactics or naivety but we were second best across the pitch.
Again too much sideways or backwards passing, very frustrating. Ken

Poor performance in midfield, Salah, Firminio and Mane still not performing. Better team won.

Was TAA injured? He gives a much better attacking option than Gomez who should have been at Centre Back instead of Lovren .
Some great players on show but Thiago Silva was outstanding, I’ve always liked him, imagine him paired with VVD :D Ken

Pleased to have won, but I thought a draw would have been a fair result. Liverpool had the most chances but Everton played the better football, and had the best chance of the game with Gomes's header. I thought it was a better Derby game than most.

Great game, best EFC side seen in a long time. Lucky win but we’ll take it.

Best we’ve seen of Fabhino but his his mate Firmino had a shocker, he looks jaded to me. K

I think Klopp reads this thread he rested Firminio he looked sharper when he came on and made one of Salahs goals. :)

I thought Salah’s celebrations were a bit subdued and he kept staring towards the bench each time, have a look, am I seeing things that are not there?

I think he’s a very humble, modest man, Bri. He lets others, including a Jurgen, do the elaborate celebrations. :wink: Ken

I wish Liverpool had a young midfielder like Matteo Guendouzi of Arsenal. I have watched him carefully in all of Arsenal's games,, and I do believe he is going to be a top class midfielder. He covers every yard of the pitch during a game,always moving into space to make himself available to receive a pass. At 19 years old he is so composed on the ball and nearly always plays a perfectly weighted pass. He is never afraid to tell older players what to do with the ball, and in my opinion,as I said, a great prospect

I agree Bri, Salah was giving someone the evil eye, Shaqiri also looked over his shoulder, something was amiss.

Salah’s evil eye was for Cook, surely. He’d raked Mo’s Achilles but the Egyptian King went on to score :wink: Ken

OK, Bri, I only saw MOTD highlights and on fast forward too, so obviously missed that.

I watched STEVIE GERRARDS dvd today about his time, life and playing at LFC and it is really worth looking at and it is called MAKE US DREAM and it gives you a really good insight about his time there and his dedication but I don't want to spoil it but you have to get it

£65 million for a Goalie ? Money well spent :D

£65 million is a silly price to pay for a goalkeeper whose opponents keep hitting with the ball.

When does a bad miss become a good save? :roll:

It also happened on Monday night when EFC hit the Watford goalie with a penalty kick.

Or pay less and get a goalie that knocks the ball back into play on to the head of opposing Centre forward who promptly knocks it in to win a local Derby in the 95th minute :wink: K

I wasn't criticising the goalie...just that nobody seems to understand its not right to describe a shocking miss as a great save.

To hit a stationary goalie three yards away in between an 8 yard gap is a bad miss.

I thought Pickford was a little tongue in cheek when he accepted praise because the penalty kick hit him a few weeks ago. It was just another bad miss. :wink:

Mine too , tongue in cheek that is. :wink:

I thought you were in the Goalies Union Ernie :lol:

I don’t like the way modern goalies, parry the ball away instead of catching it, that art seems to be lost :roll:

Thinking about the posted comments re goalkeepers and penalties made me think of the best penalty takers that I have seen.

Three spring to mind immediately

(1) Peter Lorimer - Leeds (2) Roy Vernon - Everton (3) last, but in my opinion the best of them all, Lothar Mattheus (Bayern).

Mattheus used to just hit the ball with everything and if the keeper got in the way that was his problem. I cannot recall seeing anybody hit a dead ball as fiercely as the German did.
