Hi Eds and fellow Reds.

This is my first post. Im an avid reader but have never posted. I have no inside info and am not in the know on anything. Lifelong Red and currently a corporate employed by LFC's number one sponsor.

Reading posts for years, I just want to give a massive shout out to Ed 2. Solid. Honest. Does all he can to not mislead the public. Really appreciate all the Eds.

Great job.

{Ed002's Note - Welcome, you are very sweet.}

Cheers mate. I have one question, would like your opinion please. As you are not a Liverpool supporter and clearly have very good contacts. Do too players in Europe really want to play for Liverpool over other English sides? What is the real reason Liverpool cannot sign the stature of players the Mancs and Chelsea can? Is it negligence on the part of the club or have we actually lost the power to sign top players?

{Ed002's Note - It will come as a shock but not all players grew up Liverpool supporters and want to play for the club. In terms of Manchester United, Chelsea and others getting “the pick” of players, it is simply down to success.}

Ed002 which gin do you prefer.

I like Bombay Sapphire with Fever Tree tonic but recently I have really enjoyed the rhubarb and ginger flavoured gin from Edinburgh Gin Company-

Artisan gins are enjoying a bit of a renaissance at the moment-

I suspect that you may not be too well acquainted with rhubarb- The best is grown up here in Yorkshire but people talk a lot of rhubarb throughout the country-.

{Ed002's Note - I like the Bombay Dry rather that the Sapphire - which is baby oil like, Sipsmiths and M&S’s own. My youngest daughter likes the Rhubarb gin. Against the grain, check out Manchester Gin. I always buy a bottle in different counties and there are a bunch to be opened.}

There is a Liverpool Gin which I got as a Christmas present but I haven’t tried it yet. It has some Valencia Orange flavour apparently, There is a Liver bird on the label

Thank you for the recommendations but rather childishly I won’t try the Manchester Gin but I will look out for Bombay Dry and Sipsmiths,

OMG Eds002 is a drinks guru now, worst I've been is a toss up between ting Tau 8* (think it's about 12%) and green chatrose spelling.

What's your favourite gin ed? I've had to acquire the taste of it over the years.

{Ed002's Note - See above.}

Try 78 degreees or four pillars. Both Aussie guns and truly delicious.

{Ed002's Note - I'll look out for them.}

I was pleasantly surprised by Edinburgh gin last weekend. Really nice. That said, most gins go down well!

Try Gunpowder Gin, it’s irish and really nice to drink. Or the latest one I found in Portugal (I’m sure they sell it here) is Blackwoods - but beware, it’s a serious session juice as it’s 60%! I had 4 and suddenly became the most amusing person on the planet (to me) 🤣.

Anything else in the hamper or is it just a crate of gin?

{Ed002's Note - Just gin.}
