      Christ sake mate, if you don't rate somebody fine, but if some f**king arsehole threatens his family he has every right to be pissed off. To accuse him of looking for sympathy is pretty pathetic in my book. Abuse should never get personal (this forum included) and it has clearly crossed the line, end of, why people have to be so f**king cynical about everything is beyond me, can't you separate lovren the person and lovren the player

      I want to apologize to you for reacting angrily to your post about my post on Lovren. I know you are intelligent and I should never resort to that kind of inference in defending myself. I'm sorry and I've removed my response to you.

      I honestly feel like in his comments, he brought the valid criticisms of his performance and associated it with this totally unacceptable post on his Instagram. Those are two entirely separate things to me.

      If someone made a threat against my family I wouldn't go to the media, I'd go to the cops, which apparently he hasn't done. As I said before, by all means the post (even if its someone's idea of a sick joke), is totally disgusting and of course illegal and the guy should pay for it. There's no equivocation about that.

      Players have always got abuse, nothing new in that, what isn't acceptable is some little f**king scrote from Warrington throwing death threats around!!

      Agree.

      What did his family do? make us rest of the fans look bad,

      Disagree.  1 dickhead in 800,000 followers on his social media.  If I'm being entirely honest here, having run a forum which is likely to feature way more coherent intelligent supporters than a picture sharing site, I'm surprised there was only one.

      I don't think it reflects badly on Liverpool supporters at all.  If there was only 1 dickhead in every 800,000 people everyone's life would probably be amazing! 🤔

      I think it's clear that Lovren isn't a leader - so when he makes a mistake, he over criticises himself which leads to more lapses in concentration. He needs that leader-like character next to him to set his head right when he makes a mistake. I think we saw elements of this when Sakho was playing next to him. They were projecting that type of warrior like behaviour during matches and Lovren clearly thrived from that backing from his partner.

      I don't think he gets this from Matip. Or Klavan. Matip and Klavan appear far too reserved characters to me from the stands.

      Until we have different resources in that position, I feel Lovren will continue to wrestle with his own composure.

      As for threats to him and his family. That's a f**king disgrace.

      https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/oct/31/liverpool-dejan-lovren-disgusting-death-threats

      Of two minds about this "news story."

      Of course I have no time for any tw*t making death threats against anyone. If this person can be found, he deserves the full force of the law to appropriately punish him for such an awful statement (even if it is some kid in his parent's cellar).

      On the other hand, it kind of seems like the article and Lovren's comment of “horrible what kind of people we have” before adding in a second image: “I don’t mind when people talk sh*t about me, it says more about them!" are mainly meant to draw sympathy. Yes, a fan (not a group of people based on the info in this article) went way over the line and should be dealt with according to law. But this is a different issue than the player's performances and his seeming lack of mental toughness.

      And yes, he may well be in the team tomorrow evening...

      No tolerance for any type of threat even from 'one of us'.

      YNWA Dejan, just keep away from our team :D

      In case someone hasn't read the letter which is an article on this site's web page.

      https://www.anfield-online.co.uk/opinion/guest-post/2017/dear-dejan-lovren/




      Dear Dejan Lovren,

      What a week it's been for you.  A nightmare at Wembley, England's national stadium, against Spurs.  After completely forgetting things such as the offside rule, defending for the first goal you then forgot about the laws of gravity for the second goal.

      It can't have been any fun at all to be taken off after 31 minutes (It would have been 27 minutes if the ball hadn't have remained in play for an extraordinary amount of time.)

      Soon after the game you disabled comments on Instagram, removed your profile picture temporarily and removed the name of your employer who pays you £5 million a year.

      Tough times indeed.

      And then 1 of your 800,000 followers, apparently a child, issues you a 'death threat' via the social media commenting function.   A clearly worrying development, but not one you genuinely consider serious judging by your lack of communication to the police.

      Better times ahead perhaps? Huddersfield at Anfield?

      Jürgen names you in the team - he wants you to prove that last week was just a blip.

      No.  Injured in the warm up.  Joel Matip passed the ball to you just that little bit quickly and, ouch, the thigh.

      As it was - Liverpool won the game (with a clean sheet) and most LFC fans sighed relief at 3 points over a potential banana skin.

      So despite the thigh injuries, the injections, the instagram nutter, the mad half-way line failed header and the general all-round poor play this is the only thing that is important.

      You're not good enough to play for Liverpool.

      Not the Liverpool we want it to be.  You might be good enough for a Liverpool who have suffered two straight relegations to League One.  Yeah, you could probably do a job there if needed.

      But Liverpool in the Champions League? Liverpool wanting to break out of the 4-8 positions of the last 20 years and push for the title? Sorry Dejan, you're not quite up to it.

      West Ham. Fenerbahce.  Real Sociedad.  I can picture your future.

      Liverpool? No.

      I think you know that Virgil van Dijk wasn't planned as Joel Matip's replacement.

      I'm happy that you've had mega wages for a few years as a Liverpool player.  Our former manager did make some absolutely mad signings I'm sure you'll agree.  But as far as our future goes you shouldn't be in it.

      Best of luck.



      I'd change something .

      I hate hearing about the threats, in the end this is just Football and people need to get that. Threatening another mans family under any circumstance is low down and cowardly. But threatening them over a game (no matter how much you may love it)? I mean that's just stupid and idiotic. It's even more inexcusable than the goal that Dejan gave up against Sevilla or........ Insert Lovern gaffe here __________.

      Considering the amount of sh*t he has received, I reckon he is quite a strong fella, and personally am damn pleased for him.
      Can’t have been mentally easy to come back into the team, play with the supposed 3rd choice center back (klaven) and and play against the fella that the club and we fans have wanted in his place for over a year (VVD)

      Obviously Sevilla, will be a far sterner test, than Southampton where on Saturday, at Anfield. Playing Lovren will be a bold choice, although if Matip is unfit. He will no doubt be selected, which gives him a chance to at least redeem himself, if only on a temporary basis.

      How many games does he have to cost us before he's moved on for good?

      Unreliable and mentally weak. Just after conceding the penalty, he started doing things he never did before in the game, like running forward with the ball, clearly trying to make up for his mistake. That's when he usually becomes even worse, and even more of a liability.

      That pass before full time was the icing on the cake.

      Whilst the contact for penalty was soft I would have given it just because he's a dumb c**t for making any with the player running away from the goal and any danger.

      Sick of him and he needs f**king off.

      What a loser. To protest like that is so pointless. Take responsibility for your gaff. You ought to be use to it by now. It was soft, sure. But that’s almost always a penalty when a decision has to be made in a matter of seconds. Shame on you for defending that way. Quit being a chump and own it.

      The fact that it is correct to play him is shameful. Sadly he is one of the 2 best we have right now. That’s pathetic

      Was a really soft penalty and in fact in slow mo Lewin clearly dived as he slowed down waiting for contact and of course Lovren duly obliged.
      Not surprised Pawson gave it as he is one of the poorest refs in the league, no great surprise he doesn't get many big games.

      An elite level defender would not have been conned that easily by Lewin and certainly would not have had his arm raised looking like he was pushing Lewin in the back, alas we know Lovren is no where near elite level.

      His positioning wasn't great at the beginning. The long ball could have been easily intercepted, but he missed the header.
