Oh, Woe is Me………

Not only were my beloved LFC humiliated by both the bottom ranked teams of the Premier League in the past week, exiting the FA Cup in the process, but my Thunderball tickets also failed to win for me - as I said, "Oh, woe is me" !!  John (JKW)

I wished I knew enough about football to offer you an erudite response John but we both know that is not the case. Seems our small band of “die hard”, keyboard warriors is decreasing even further. I guess Bob is sunning himself in Goa by now, lucky him. He would certainly have responded.  The “Ich Dien” site seems to elicit more responses and discussions albeit mostly confined to “the good old days” photos and memories. I confess I’m beginning to lose heart a bit myself, I have typed up a few posts recently only to delete them before pressing the send button thinking what’s the point! I am sad for all the work Freddie puts into it for such a meagre return in the shape of members’ posts. Not sure that anything is going to encourage greater participation but at least we tried and persevered. Hope all is well with you and yours best wishes, David.

Methinks that Klopp is not interested in the Football League games, so he is not overly concerned with LFCs performances in any of the UK games and teams, he is only interested in the European games, but he should know he needs to be involved in the domestic UK comps, which is the ONLY way to get into European Competitions full stop. If he is not careful, he could be sacked PDQ, since the American bosses would not hesitate to get rid of him if the team lose too many more internal UK matches. he can not be the best in Europe if he is NOT the best in UK, full stop. Someone somewhere MUST point his brain in the right direction, and NOT the way he wants it. Pontification complete, for now!!!!

Having supported the reds since i left the Army (nearly said when I came out) in 65, had a season ticket for 20 years, through thick & thin, was even at Hillsborough with my son, but, even I some times lose faith with the attitude of the players, team is not perfect, you play Man City and batter them , we appear to be a big game team, unable to rouse our selves for the smaller games. Rummaging through my old programmes found one for 23rd sept 1967 derby game at home, reds were top on 11 points, team was : Lawrence, Lawler, Byrne, Smith, Yeats, Hughes, Callaghan, Hunt, Hateley, St John, Thompson. programme cost 6d. Memories Hey! (beat them by 1.0)

11 points clear, & that was when it was  only two points for a win, meaning we were 5 wins & a draw ahead of the 2nd placed team ! Some  ( no, ALL) great names there Charlie, I can picture every one of them, from "The Flying Pig" to "Crazy Horse", from  "Mr Colossus" to "the Anfield Iron", sadly the two former stalwarts RIP, the latter two legends both in advanced stages of dementia - life can be so cruel at times. Here's hoping today's stars can win on Sunday ! John (JKW)

I recall the Saturday matches in those days at the Anfield Rd end with Ronnie Kimpton (ex 3tp A sqn in Detmold days), enjoying the LFC players not even afraid of strutting their stuff, and even laughing at the antics of "bite yer legs " Norman Hunter and his cronies. They were great days, when the only crowd trouble in Annie Rd end was when the Ultra well behaved Man U female supporters started flicking lit fags at all and sundry LFC supporters, but one day THEY got their come uppence when the LFC lads nicked their cans of beer and offered it all back to them for a fiver a bottle....They were the days my friend........and Tommie Smith clattered "Bite yer legs" a few times, and  said Recipient then never went near him again....until the following year....Hey ho, such memories!!! And the time when a German side was at Anfield in a E U Cup night game when the lights went out just as LFC scored, and the Kop sang "Who Scored, Who Scored??" Anny Rd shouted back "Ian St John" twice and the Kop sang "Thank you very much for the information thank you very much thank you very indeed!!" Great memories, and never forgotten.
