International break has been its usual disaster for Liverpool

Salah, Keita, Van Dijk and Mane all injured in some shape or form.

Not sure how many will be ruled out on Saturday but at least Sturridge wasnt called up!

Has he not been out all season?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Digger was a legend. Still my favourite goal of all as I was at that game and recall the experience so vividly. I reckon if he hadnít had his Achilles injury when he did we would have stayed at the top of the tree in the crossover from the old FL to the PL and then who know what might have been. Imagine him firing the balls into a young Robbie Fowler ..... that would have been unreal!!!

Always loved that goal.  Barnes was majestic in his prime years.  What a player he was.  Arguably only second to Kenny as Liverpool's greatest ever?

"The Brazil moment was a one-off, for him and England, whereas the QPR goal confirmed something brilliant was happening Ė that, after a dismal run of only one league title in three seasons, Liverpool were not only back but better than ever."

What we would give for such dismal form now.

Roma supporter Filippo Lombardi has been found not guilty of causing grievous bodily harm to Liverpool fan Sean Cox during an attack that occurred prior to a Champions League semi-final clash between the clubs in April, but has been sentenced to three years in prison for violent disorder.

Mr Lombardi had pleaded guilty to the lesser charge but denied the accusation that he participated in the assault outside Anfield on 24 April that has left Mr Cox, a 53-year-old father of three from Co Meath in Republic of Ireland, unable to sit up or speak unaided.

A jury of six men and six women took almost nine hours of deliberation at Preston Crown Court to reach a majority not guilty verdict on the charge of GBH, but in sentencing Mr Lombardi the presiding judge said he did not accept the defence's claim that the 21-year-old was not there to cause trouble.

The prosecution claimed that Mr Lombardi and another man, referred to in court as N40, acted together and were jointly responsible for the injuries sustained by Mr Cox, alleging that N40 threw a punch which hit the Liverpool fan and Mr Lombardi swung a belt at him as he fell.

Another life ruined as a result of football violence.  Puts sharply into focus how stupid orchestrated actions such as the welcoming of the Man City bus was. Could easily have led to something similar.

Only a bitter idiot would compare the two incidents and try to twist it just so to have a dig at Liverpool over it.

I'm often reminded of a line that the character Bronn uses in Game of Thrones - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13CSWRyaAgA

What would you expect from a pig but a grunt! 

Whatever about the result in the court case hopefully the Cox family can move on a bit.  I work with a guy from Dunboyne and there was a lot of emotion last weekend after they won the final.

Lucky to be one up at half time. Badly missing Mane and Firmino. Sturridge has been anonymous but has had very little service. Could see Gini and Firmino coming on before too long.

Edit. Winjandum on st half time for Hendo

That was a far more nervy ending than it needed to be. Poor preformance but another 3 points and still unbeaten.
