Good evening Eds and fellow posters.

A quick question for you Ed 02, you keep inferring that we cannot afford certain players

{Ed002's Note - De Ligt will not be moving to Liverpool and I doubt they have the money available to buy him. }

I don't see any chance of hime returning to Liverpool and I don't see Liverpool being able to afford him. }

Also when we mention players that could be of interest you say only if somebody is sold .

Do you know something we don't about Liverpools finances?



{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you know about Liverpool's finances Macca. Are you suggesting that Liverpool are indeed buying De Ligt and Pipco? I am sure people will be getting the Kleenex out for that.}

We have splashed out quite heavily in recent windows, especially VVD who was bought in full upfront. So we will be a little skint for a window or two I imagine.

You cannot keep buying players if someone does not leave. Even Julian Brandt (who I like as a player) did not want to come here if Cou was still around cos he playing on the left at Bayer Leverkusen, same position Cou was playing at the time.

In this case, costly players like De Ligt and Cou (who I don't want back, btw) will not come here and sit on the bench for anyone and for anything. Hence for them to be an option, one of the starters has to go to free up not just a starting position, but to also free up wages as well. I don't know if you know this or not but that is the issue here.

De Ligt and Coutinho pretty much confirmed then! Just need the fat fella from Bolton to confirm this and its job done!

We’ve spent big recently. Makes complete sense to sell before we buy invest in more top players.

Ed002 gets a lot of abuse that doesn’t make the site, don’t forget he puts time into this site for free so the input should be treated with respect.

As for macca some treat it as gospel, don’t forget they also contribute what they think is correct at the time but football is ever changing and can change in seconds.

Ed002 comments (I think) are based on some thinking that as soon as they see a rumour it must be true or expect us to buy £60m players every two minutes which isn’t the case.

VVD and Gomez are our first choice, if Lovren or matip were to leave then I’d expect investment to be made.

ED you are doing yourself and the site any favours by replying here. You know you love a dig at the club so when someone who is a die hard red who also gets info pulls you up, do you expect any dIfferent?

I did begin to believe that we were potless due to your replies and cutting through Maccas post I guess many of us would like to know what you base your comments on as we are stuck between ”is he serious or is he just having a sly joke? ”.

{Ed002's Note - What have I been pulled up on? De Light joining after I said he wouldn't? Coutinho returning after I said he wouldn't?}

You can see why finances don’t like being mentioned.

I am no way in the know but I am guessing the following points.

Liverpool are not skint but will have to comply with FFP rules.

Numerous posts often end up on here saying we need Werner, De Ligt and others. Money is finate.

If we were looking at a ‘big’ name (I use that term loosely) then logic dictates a first teamer would likely be on their way out.

We would all love for Liverpool to have 6 forwards to pick from that are all of salah’s quality but with transfer fees going up we need to be sensible.

Ed002 is often the one that is asked about transfers so the same questions can be seen as repetitive hence the rtp reply. But all the Ed’s add their elements to this site and some need to be a little less hurt when they disagree or see a reply that isn’t the answer they want.

Lads go have a look at the Chelsea rumours site and see what bones they get thrown during transfer windows. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you!

Come on guys please give Ed02 a break. He's seriously hurting here and does not deserve the abuse.

I really respect all the titbits I hear about Liverpool and his vast knowledge. I have no idea about the finances but we all need to bear in mind about FFP. We have made a lot of signings recently and I doubt we could afford Coutinho. As for De Ligt, I've no idea if £50m is out of our reach currently or not.

Let's all show the Eds some respect and also Macca too.

Nailed it WY, but sadly some posters simply won't get it. Only when ED002 stops sharing the info he has will the idiots who occasionally (or maybe more than occasionally) rear their head realise what they will miss out on. I've been using this site for god knows how long - I'm always waiting for the next idiot to ruin it for everyone. Sadly, with the age of the internet, being a nob is far too easy. And who could blame anyone, ED002 included, for not putting themselves in the firing line?

Great to see you back posting Macca. Ed002 always great to have you posting on here and your knowledge is 2nd to none. I also love your sarcastic posts keep them coming.
