I'm pretty sure the delay will be followed with plans to complete the season in the summer... I'm all for that, even if stadiums are empty.

Everything depends on the Coronavirus curve 'tho.
Yeah, same. We're way lower down the table, but on current form could potentially still make it into Europe, so hope this all calms down.

Rival fans can say what they like but when our club makes a mistake, the fans don't stand back and "just accept".

LFC have reversed their decision to furlough some non-playing staff and admitted that the club should not have done so in the first place.

This is entirely due to the reaction from Liverpool fans themselves to the news.

Proud of us tonight.

The corporate part of the club may not always fully understand what YNWA means but we, the fans do.

Eek!

The Dalglish family have tonight released the following statement to supporters regarding Sir Kenny Dalglish.

Sir Kenny was admitted to hospital on Wednesday April 8 for treatment of an infection which required intravenous antibiotics.
In keeping with current procedures, he was subsequently tested for COVID-19 despite having previously displayed no symptoms of the illness. Unexpectedly, the test result was positive but he remains asymptomatic.
Prior to his admission to hospital, Sir Kenny had chosen to voluntarily self-isolate for longer than the advised period together with his family. He would urge everyone to follow the relevant government and expert guidance in the days and weeks ahead.
He would like to take this opportunity to thank the brilliant NHS staff, whose dedication, bravery and sacrifice should be the focus of the nation’s attention at this extraordinary time.
He would also ask that they are given the space to do their jobs during what is an extremely challenging time for them and that his own family’s privacy is respected.
He looks forward to being home soon. We will provide further updates as and when it is appropriate.

Ed002 who do you see us selling this season I know there is a couple out of contract lallana and Clyde. But do you see Harry Wilson grujić and Ojo being sold.

{Ed002's Note - The situation prior to the pandemic would be something like this (although this has not been updated for a while).

Outbound:
Shamal George (G) loan to St Gallen then what as he is never going to get a chance at Liverpool
Loris Karius (G) Liverpool will find him back on the doorstep and will need to find a solution - perhaps a reduced price and an early exit
Andy Lonergan (G) out of contract - could stay if Adrian leaves
Adrian (G) has a year to run on his contract but Real Betis would like Liverpool to release him for free this summer - but the club would prefer him to stay - needs resolving but I expect him the stay
Devan Lovren (CB) perhaps in the summer he will move on
Nathaniel Phillips (CB) if Liverpool add Diego Carlos or another CB then time may have come for Phillips - Stuttgart would like to keep him on loan and may be open to buying him at the right price.
Nathaniel Clyne (RB)
Pedro Chirivella (DM/CM) A decision needs to be taken over Pedro Chirivella in the summer. There has been no indication that the club plans to play him - if he is in the first team squad he takes up one of the 25 available spaces, but is HG. He has been playing predominently as a DM in Premier League 2 but is more than capable of playing CM, but Curtis Jones is ahead of him in that role. So it is time for a decision to be made. I don't think the club have plans to sell him - but they will need to tell him what their plans are. Milner signing a new contract, Wijnaldum probably staying, the emerging Jones and the possible return of Grujic will make opportunities thin on the ground - and the lack of any prior playing time implies he may not be seen as trusted cover for Fabinho.
Allan (CM) left for Atletico Mineiro
Gini Wijnaldum (CM) was priced out of a move last summer and will be allowed to leave if a new contract is not agreed. Naby Keita has failed to step up to take his place so the club will look to hold on to Wijnaldum if they can - perhaps until either Keita sorts his act out or until Curtis Jones is ready to step up.
Marko Grujic (CM) Liverpool may opt to take a good profit and run - no guarantee of a work permit or place in the team - and critically not HG - but he wants a chance
Ovie Ejaria (CM) will have the option to join Reading in the summer.
Adam Lallana (LM, AM, CM) time will come in the summer and he will have options home and abroad no doubt
James Milner (CM/RM/LM) signed a new contract so an exit now is very unlikely
Xherdan Shaqiri (AM/RW) wants more game time and if he leaves it opens the door for HG player to ease an issue the club has
Isaac Christie-Davies (AM) loan then sold
Harry Wilson (RW) Minamino likely ends his Liverpool career
Taiwo Awoniyi (F) no meaningful future - will sell in the summer if possible - loan to Mainz has not worked out well
Liam Millar (F) - a youngster who will suffer the same fate as many of the youngsters at Liverpool with opportunity not there
Rhian Brewster (S) loan to Swansea again perhaps.

The club will no doubt be looking again and need to think "financially do we keep them or cut them loose".

Perhaps his impact of turning United around a corner after United's awful start? You have to admit the last time United did this was when Cantona joined

Unpopular opinion: Fernandez is really, really good. There were stories about us having a look at him a while ago, and I was pi**ed when United signed him.

Yeah, pity did not opt for him. He would have been a perfect Coutinho replacement. He's got everything that we need in our Midfield. I think Klopps priority is Kouliby and Werner.

Maybe he does not see Fernandez as a work horse which he prefers over a free role player

The odd thing was why did United's deal not go through at the start of the season and someone else did not snatch him up given there were rumours of him leaving sporting then, it's odd to see how a player just rocks up on the first day and start taking charge - even in his first match when he came on as a sub he felt comfortable and tried things and got the team moving in a different direction, not even Pogba, Van Dijk, Maguire, Coutinho, Neymar, et en al had this kind of impact for the price they were bought for
