Terrible news of some chartered flights being cancelled for the match at the moment it looks like not everyone with tickets will be getting to the game due to allocation of air slots for planes mayor Joe Anderson an avid blue has reached out to klichko to try and sort the problem out hope these guys get to the game cos we need our firepower in the stadium YNWA.

Good Morning Eds. I see ESPN and a few others are reporting Liverpool interest in Christopher Nkunku. I checked the search engine and haven't seen his name mentioned in quite some time, so I thought I would ask if there was any actual interest. Thanks.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - i don’t know but Fiorentina had discussions with him and stepped back because of demands for game time.}

24 May 2018 16:09:01
Thanks Ed002. It is greatly appreciated.

24 May 2018 13:43:06
Liverpool have signed a new 4 year deal with Standard Chartered worth £160m (£40m a season) .

Eds is this a good deal for the club or do you think they could have done better?

{Ed002's Note - it is good.}

I’m happy with your word on that Ed. It does seem like we’re making better decisions money wise Ed and things are certainly on an upward curve.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2018 17:01:35
Are these deals always a flat payment or can there be add-ons? Such as reaching the Champion’s League final for an extra £2m or something of the sorts.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The deal has always had £5M short clause for not qualifying for the CL.}

Hi Ed,
Do you have any update on Pep Lijnders or Buvac?

Wanted to request u ed01.while making our season review right. make four parts.1-summer transfer window,2-season till end of December,3-winter transfer window, 4-season from jan till our cup victory! Is that ok?

Do we hold any interest in Ndidi?

Actually we don’t but we probably should.

24 May 2018 04:15:33
We have no interest in Ndidi and I am happy we have none! Why do we need another ball winner? We need a DLP. Someone who picks players not someone who win from opposition!

23 May 2018 12:40:45
Ed001, obviously Can will leave and we'll need to find someone new to compete with Hendo for the holding role. My question Is, that if we can't get the first choice player, Ceballos, is there a chance Klopp may give Pedro Chirivella the chance? He was arguably our most successful loanee last season.

Or is it a case of Chirivella not having a future, and would we just move on to someone else we've scouted like Doucoure, Ndidi or Obing?

Believable9 4Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - Chirivella is planned to have a shot at cementing a place during the pre-season friendlies.}

23 May 2018 12:58:40
Would love it if he took that chance, he's done so well for two years on loan now.

23 May 2018 13:48:37
Cheers for the insight Ed. Like hjikle, I hope he does well too. He came with a big reputation!

Agree11 0Disagree

23 May 2018 14:17:51
I see the consensus on Ceballos is that he would play the deeper lying role. I confess to not seeing anything of him live, I only watch Liverpool.
From what I have seen of him on the one and only YT, I can’t imagine it. I don’t think he has played there before and looks more of a link up player, running with the ball, short passes into forwards etc.
Like I said, I don’t know, only ever get time to watch Liverpool and YouTube as we all know is no real scouting tool but is that what we think is to happen with him if signed?

Agree0 1Disagree

23 May 2018 14:35:43
I think he would be a good squad player for next season, keeps the play ticking over and reads the game well.

Obviously if we are bringing in more players then get him out for more experience but I would be upset if we din see him don a Liverpool shirt at some point!

Agree5 0Disagree

23 May 2018 14:40:31
If he proves to be good enough, do you think that would cause the club to change their mind on ceballos?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no idea.}

23 May 2018 16:14:59
I have no idea what position the player prefers barnsey, but he has made 131 senior appearances, and 65 of those he started the game as a deeper midfielder. He has started 38 other games either on the left midfield, attacking midfield or the right midfield. Sub appearance positioms aren't recorded.

He is much better in the deeper midfield roles, because he is not a quick dribbler and doesn't score many goals. He wouldn't fit the attacking roles in our system at all. He is still only very young and has been used as something of a utility player for most of his career so far, but his best position from what I have seen is definitely in a traditional midfield role. I actually think he'd be better in a midfield two myself, alongside Keita or Henderson.

If he was the sole holding player in a midfield 3, he might get overwhelmed at this age, with his lack of experience. The Spanish football fans liken him to Luka Modric. He is basically a midfield playmaker who can also chip in defensively (he loves a tackle), but he can also cover the more attacking roles to an okay level. He's not a pure defensive midfielder for sure, but neither is Henderson. Klopp Doesn't play an orthodox DM.

Agree11 5Disagree

23 May 2018 18:38:59
With the window shortened and WC taking place I don't think the club will take a risk. They will go for Ceballos if not another player of his mould. Seriously it's going to affect the youngsters as Ed001 pointed earlier.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2018 22:11:29
Spot on, Barnes. Never seen Ceballos play BU I watched some youtube highlights and a DLM, he is not, I'm afraid. Maybe others can help me here.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 May 2018 23:47:08
Brover, you have to remember that a YouTube highlight reel will focus primarily on goals and assists. Most of these came whilst he was playing in attacking positions (naturally) . So his YouTube highlights only tend to show him in games he played further forward. It would be a boring highlight reel if it was him intercepting a passes, making tackles and playing a forward pass to the attacking midfielders.

You'd have to research him more extensively than YouTube. Watch him in full games. Read detailed scout reports and player profiles etc. YouTube only picks out exciting bits and doesn't comprehensively cover everything about any player.

Agree5 1Disagree

24 May 2018 03:57:25
So true MK - he's one of our most important players but have you looked at a Henderson highlight reel recently 😂.

Agree0 1Disagree

24 May 2018 07:48:10
It's a shame that with the shortened window, it's less likely chiravella will get a shot to prove himself.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2018 20:06:17
@ SGRed - I actually looked at a Henderson highlight reel a few weeks back to compare it to a Jorginho highlight reel, and I have to say Henderson looked better.

And I think they were done by the same person.

It did contain virtually all of his attacking play this season, tbf, but how do I know the Jorginho one didn't contain all of his attacking play?

Agree0 0Disagree

apologies to benny baller and the rest of the lads. my last comment came across totally the wrong way. i said about the charity match let's do it properly. it wasn't to take away from all the hard work done or belittle anyone.

all i meant was i am not involved but love what you are all doing and would quite happily pay towards a football kit that can be used again and again. hopefully it could be used over and over and the members of this site can carry on doing such a marvelous thing each year.

apologies to all and i doth my cap to all involved x.

I hope that this Salah transfer issue gets sorted out quickly. If he is staying (as he has intimated) that will be terrific. If he goes I'd like to thank him for his performance and wish him all the best for the future (except if he plays against Liverpool) . What I would like to say is that Ed 002 has said several times that Mo asked his agent to speak to Real Madrid. He has been playing for Liverpool for the past nine months so I assume that Real Madrid weren't interested. That being the case if I was Salah I would say to Real "You've had your chance but didn't take it! ". The latest comments from those attached to Real about him not being good enough for them will hopefully inspire him to stay and also to put in (another) great performance on Saturday.

Believable2 37Unbelievable

If he’s staying, it won’t be “sorted” until the window closes.
So let’s hope it’s not sorted quickly 🤝.

Agree0 1Disagree

23 May 2018 08:35:17
He said he's staying. Liverpool have said he's staying. Real haven't shown interest (and let's face it, if they were going to they'd do it now, to disrupt him in the final) . If that's not 'sorted' for you, it'll never be sorted.

Agree8 0Disagree

23 May 2018 11:00:30
The only rumour is entirely self generated. There is nothing to put to bed that we haven't manufactured ourselves.

Salah is our best player ergo either Real or Barcelona want him ergo he is considering leaving.

What Salah transfer issue are you referring to, OP? Ed02 gave us news, that's all. RM can't get him and LFC aren't selling regardless of price so just chill out and enjoy the masterpiece that Salah and his mates are producing on the field.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 May 2018 16:22:35
So Dani Ceballos doesn't want to move to the premier league and has instructed RM not to accept offers from Liverpool. Want to go back to Betis!

I think you need to take every transfer rumour with a pinch of salt. Things change quickly this time of year, it wasn’t long ago that we all thought Navas was a target, now we are hearing it is Butland, only last weekend people were saying Fekir was 99% done, now it seems we haven’t even had discussions with Lyon yet. I only trust 2-3 sources for transfers, other than that I try to ignore the rest, if you believe them all it’s going to be a long summer.

22 May 2018 18:17:20
Were you got that from JC? Eds has already said the player wants to come.

22 May 2018 19:18:38
Read it today apparently quoted as saying he would rather stay in Spain and doesn’t want premier league move favours a move back to Betis. The owner/ president has followed it up suggesting they are also in for the player and says he’s confident of him signing.

Not saying this is gospel.

Agree5 1Disagree

22 May 2018 19:20:11
Found it was on the sky pages from some Spanish place

Daniel Ceballos has told Real Madrid president to rebuff any approaches for Liverpool for his services, Don Balon reports.

The midfielder does not want a move to the Premier League and would prefer a return to Real Betis.

I would rather have doucore or ndidi in midfield they know wat premiership is about an have more steel about them, we need a good defensive mid behind two box too box midfielders.

22 May 2018 19:50:38
He’s obviously the Spanish equivalent of Siggurdson. Moves from a small club to a big club and can’t hack it, so ends up going back there. His next move after Betis will be to go to another small club, just slightly better than Betis.

Good news for us then. I believe that Ceballos as our new DLP would have been a big blunder by Klopp anyways.

Agree4 4Disagree

23 May 2018 08:16:55
Ceballos would be a great signing because his potential is huge. Hosever, if he isn't fully committed (assuming this is true) then we dodged a bullet.

Nothing worse than Johnny Foreigner coming to England and sulking because the weather isn't great and the food is greasy. He's not so good that their are no alternativess.

Go land Doucoure instead. He's been flirting with us in the media anyway 😂.

23 May 2018 17:42:35
Marca and AS have both reported that he’d prefer to stay in Spain with Betis. At the end of the day some players travel well and some don’t. I’d rather he stayed in Spain than travel here and get homesick after a month and want to return. It isn’t like there aren’t other tangible options. There’s Neves, Rabiot as deep lying playmakers or Doucoure or Ndidi for the less subtle more blood and thunder approach. And all of those would be within our reasonable price range and happy to join us. With the benefit of not having to talk to Real Madrid too!

22 May 2018 18:03:37
Okay Ed002 thanks a lot. I have emailed your PA my address. The other team are in red, so a blue kit would be nice. As for sizes I’d say 10 large 4 XL should cover all our beautiful figures. I’m hoping this becomes a yearly cup so will use the same kits each year. Some of the boys may get stage fright if you attend, hopefully you don’t give us the hairdryer treatment at half time 🙈.

{Ed002's Note - Leave it with me Benny. Obviously if they are Liverpool fans playing they will need the extra long knuckle-dragger sleeves - I will get the ones with the hump on the back. I will speak to Coral in a few days when I get back to England and she will get it in hand right away. I will also get something that does not clash with the red. So may plan for electric cerise is probably down the pan. Really appreciate your efforts and will see if I can maybe fly back for this.}

1. It is going to be an annual thing. We have two new kits, kindly bought by Ed002 and Ken.
2. Up till a month a go I had Dermot Gallagher refereeing ( he’s now on Hol, but I’ve emailed another efl referee )
3. We have named it the Matt Hawker cup, a legacy to Ed001s best mate who died from leukaemia.
4. We have a lovely little venue
5. It’s being live streamed on Facebook
6. We should have raised a thousand pounds for the charities
7. We will all be wearing black arm bands in honour of grumpy from the Everton page.
And finally we have people flying in from abroad to play in this game, with the possibility of meeting THE ed 002.

Gutted to be missing this, flying in from Asia just a bridge too far. Hopefully one of these days it coincides with a business/ holiday trip back home.

One request, can you record the game somewhere so we can watch back? Oh, and at the start can we do a team lineup with each persons site names so we can put a face to Ed’s, Benny, MK, Waro etc. would be fascinating I’m sure.

Finally, make sure if Ed02 turns up, can we arrange for a throne to watch the match and make sure he/ she is suitably dressed in androgynous clothing and wearing a stig helmet. We don’t want to destroy the mystique.
