Hi Ed001 thanks for the ongoing work and information. To be honest for next year I care only about minimum finishing top four and qualifying for the later rounds of the Champions League. Anything less and Coutinho will leave 100% and we are back to square one.

We want to be really having a proper go to win the league, I don't see how buying players from Chelsea that they don't want instead of Keita and VVD will move us forward. let's for once have a right go and I think VVD and Keita make us a real contenders.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - seriously? It doesn't matter where a player comes from or whether they are wanted there or not. You buy players that fit your team and that improve it, which a player like Christensen would do far more to do than VVD.}

Change of subject alert 🚨

With the focus seemingly on a cb rather than a lb what do you all think about the possibility of a 3-4-3?

Lovren Matip and a new cb at the back Henderson and coutinho in the middle with maybe TAA as a rwb and either lallana or wijnaldum as lwb (both hard working) and salah firmino and mane up too?

Any thoughts?
Personally think it might work and would help develop TAA

The problem is 3-4-3 relies on strong CBs and good attacking wing backs and neither of those are our particular strengths. Would only really make sense IMO if we signed a top CB and then Mendy for the LWB position.

I think the real choice should be between whether we play 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1, and then whether
1) we give our CBs support through the fullbacks sitting deeper (allowing midfield to push forward and the wingers creating the width upfront) or
2) allow the fullbacks to push forward and use a deep midfielder (or two) to provide cover

Part of our problem last season was we pushed both midfield and fullbacks forward at times and got caught on the break. by the end of the season though we had more balance and players were figuring out how to switch up the attack without all pouring forward at once and leaving the defence exposed.

Personally given the lack of attacking talent we currently have at FB and the relative strengths of our midfield and wingers, I'd hope we play 4-3-3.

The Telegraph is reporting that it will soon be confirmed that no action will be taken against the club over the alleged "tapping up" off VVD!

Journalists guessing.
What will be will be. If we're guilty then take the hit, create a siege mentality and get on with it.

Hi eds and reds hope you are all well, can't see it being mentioned on here but I've heard that we are no longer facing action from the premier league in regards to allegedly tapping up VVD as there was insufficient evidence to start the disciplinary proceedings. If true this is great news and hopefully now we get our heads on straight and straight doing things the proper way.
Enjoy your night everyone.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The critical thing is there is that the club ride out other pending issues, VvD does not go on strike, and RBL do not pursue their concern over Klopp briefing journalists to unsettle players. But this cannot go on and Klopp needs to cease what he is doing or they need to look for a new manager.}

26 Jun 2017 22:55:50
Nothing illegal about briefing the media on your targets? Lmao, Also clearly didn't commit an offence regarding VvD.

What's with the witch hunt? What better manager could we get if we looked for a new one? I'll tell you: There's nobody better on the market.

Agree5 2Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Right - most stupid post of the day. It is morons like you that cheer everyone up.}

26 Jun 2017 23:05:18
Hi ed002, cheers for the reply. And oh right seems asif we can't help ourselves in terms of pi**ing other clubs off then trying to sweep things under the carpet once caught. Ridiculous really I just can't comprehend why it is so difficult for the club to stick to basic rules. At the end of the day they are just going to end up annoying everyone to the point no one will want to do business. Like Fulham for example. It's only going to come back to bite them on the arse and no one will respect them for it. Baffles me to be honest.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It needs to be stopped.}

26 Jun 2017 20:45:39
Hi Ed 2

Just a quick one. Do you agree that Juergen Klopp is doing a good job at Liverpool? Qualifying for the champions league isn't easy, and when you compare the money spent by all the teams around us etc.



Agree6 3Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No. Last season, like the season before was a failure. He promised he could win the league with the players at the club and perhaps minimal change. He has gotten the club in a great deral of trouble and has lied to the players. The fans are taken in by the clown act and the younger players by the hugging. The owners and board are dragging their tales through the slime apologising because of what he has done. You tell me.}

26 Jun 2017 21:56:04
Whereas I agree that at times Klopp's antics got the better of him, considering the squad was the weakest of the top 5, 4th position in PL isn't total failure. This season he'll have to do much better and I still think FSG have confidence Klopp can deliver the Holy Grail (premiership) . That's also the reason why I think LFC will spend heavily on Keita.

Agree3 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Right, they are in transition and Klopp lied to the owners. It gets better all of the time. Perhaps they should have listened to Ancelotti?}

26 Jun 2017 21:59:57
Ed002's hatred of all things Liverpool laid out for all to see. Bloody pathetic - get a life you clown.

Agree12 6Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You wish to point out something I have said that is not true? You are going through life as a damp patch. I appreciate it is just something you have to be. It is not uncommon for people to turn abusive when they don't understand the truth - but rather sad.}

26 Jun 2017 22:02:59
I for one believe Klopp brought back belief. Let's be honest, the football on display last season, we totally thrashed anything that was put in front of us except for when opposition teams played with eleven in the box. The football on display was marvelous.

The whole VVD saga has put a dampner on things for me. This is Liverpool, you have to treat the club with respect. Klopp buried us in ridicule.

I am hoping Klopp was given a proper talking to. FSG seriously need to put their foot down. The only manager who has not dragged them through carp under their reign was old Hodgson but he was not even appointed by FSG. He did not cause the problems Kenny, Rodgers and Klopp have.

FSG have the financial brain, they have taken the club far beyond what Moores and the cowboys could have ever achieved but maybe running an institution as big as Liverpool has become too much for them. They are not learning from their mistakes.

Ed 2 should stick to man u page he s hatred for Liverpool gets in the way of an honest answer.

Agree5 2Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Would you like to share what part is not honest? You are are an embarrassment and will scamper off now. The manager is a disgrace and embarrassment to the club. The warnings last year and the grovelling apology for the board to need to yet again make public is a truly awful place to be. Illegally approaching players of other clubs to tap them up is something many Liverpool fans are advocating rather than accepting it is wrong. Nobody cares about the club screwing up the career of a child but would rather say "everyone else does it". And then little bits of trash like you come aloing with your ridiculous little comments - further embarrassing all Liverpool fans - is cringeworthy. So again, what part of the answer is not honest?}

26 Jun 2017 22:06:21
Again I agree with a lot of what you're saying ED 2 but could Liverpool realistically challenge the likes of Chelsea with players like Hazard, Cante', Fabregas etc. Klopp may have lied to FSG but it must have been obvious to FSG that a squad like Liverpool's cannot compete over the course of an entire season.

Agree2 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - FSG are not experts in football. They have thrown enormous amounts of money at the club and have been taken in by a manager who has one nothing for years.}

26 Jun 2017 22:16:52
Ed02, You're right that Klopp has got things wrong both on and off the pitch, but you clearly seem to have a particular, almost passionate dislike of the man. I'm sure we're all curious as to the reason behind it?

Agree7 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Where is that - where did I say something which is not true? You are not really grasping the point of honest answers. Klopp has one nothing for years and has taken people in. He has ABUSED his position to such an extent that the club has had to take on the chin two warnings last season, and now the potential investigation that could see a transfer ban or perhaps a points reduction this season. If he did indeed brief a number of journalists to publish targets then the situation will become very serious indeed. None of you get it. None of you understand the consequences of the ban the club has nor of the court case which is pending. The club and Klopp are completely out of control. But you all love it.}

Whoa, what's with the hatred to ed02? People wonder why he's get annoyed and disappears every now and then. If you ask him a question you should know by now to get his honest opinion! I personally like Klopp for what he has done league position wise, but let's not have rose tinted glasses about it. There's potential in him and the squad, but he has to change to stop with the behind the scenes antics ed02 is mentioning. We all appreciate eds input when it's something positive so you have to take the rough with the smooth!

Agree5 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Post of the day. They don't like hearing the truth W666. They would do best not to ask or to keep the questions to the playful subjects like Crystal Tipps and Alistair (who predate me being in England but I have since discovered (perhaps about 5 years ago) are an absolute blast).}

26 Jun 2017 22:35:54
I'm fairly certain the huge majority of the fans do not love it! No true Liverpool fan wants to see the club's reputation tarnished. I'm not suggesting anything you have said is untrue. It just seemed to me, as I'm sure it does to most on here, that you appear to revel in every opportunity to bash Klopp and have been doing so since he arrived. If it's simply down to the fact that you want things done properly then fair enough. It just seems there's more to it?

Agree6 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No, I get asked a question and I give an honest answer. This is like Gaston Ramerez all over again.}

26 Jun 2017 22:44:50
that was a decent read 😂. If you're opening a question out to ed's who we all know aren't all LFC fans then u can't get shirty at the response, and in all honesty, why should u care what fans of other clubs think? that's not a aimed as a pop at either of the Eds responding to the post by the way, but my personal opinion is what matters to me is what fans of the club think of the Manager, not fans of other teams!

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am hadly a football "fan".}

Ed02 thanks for taking the time to answer. The huge majority of us on here really appreciate the time and effort you take in sharing your knowledge and opinions with us.

{Ed002's Note - I understand that and thanks CR.}

26 Jun 2017 22:51:35
fair shout, point in making mate is why do people ask if they can't handle the opinion of a non LFC fan (which is obviously going to be unbiased) totally agree with the above post by westwood666, i just couldn't word mine as well! There's a lot of issues with our club that absolutely need to stop before Klopp ruins what I think he could be capable of.

26 Jun 2017 22:59:58
Look people, there is nothing right about a manager of Liverpool bringing the club into disrepute. As a matter of fact, not any employee of Liverpool.

If Ed002 is suggesting that there could be a transfer ban on the way for Liverpool or points reduction, then this is not something we should be advocating?

The Ed's are here to provide worthy info. If this is the way our fans are rambling on then it just shows the current state of affairs at this club. Questions get asked of the Ed's and they get abused when they give honest answers?

Personally think Klopp done a good job last season.
May have promised more you can't guarantee that in football.
Think he's brought the feel good factor back to the club and the fans are 100% behind him.
Can't comment to much on anything he's said reguarding transfer as know nothing of it but if true what edd002 is saying then it needs to stop.
Would be interesting to know if this is common place or not in football, I'd probably say yes, but still doesn't make it right.

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It is not common place to have done what Liverpool has done - it is far more common to see agents overstep the mark.}

26 Jun 2017 23:16:15
"It is not uncommon for people to turn abusive when they don't understand the truth" --- This is actually very true in life. All I do is talk about frequencies and you can use them for different means. it's what we're all made of. folks just don't get it. I shall use your line, ed002, thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You might want to consider the words of Langston Hughes:
I play it cool
I dig all jive
That's the reason
I stay alive
My motto
As I live and learn
Is dig and be dug in return.}

27 Jun 2017 00:17:27
It seems Ed in your replies that you are suggesting that everything that is wrong with Liverpool's transfer dealings is down to Klopp? Surely that is an untruth, no? You also said Klopp PROMISED to win the league. Again another untruth. How can anyone possibly promise to win anything?! He might have said he could do it but I'd hardly call that a lie. I say it about us every year as do most fans of any club and I'd wager a great number of managers too. You mentioned ruining a child's career in a thread about Klopp. Are you suggesting that was his fault too? Please clarify as by reading your answers I'm genuinely concerned that we are being managed by Satan himself in silly glasses.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 Jun 2017 19:54:21
Hi eds, Chelsea seem to be awash with brilliant young CB's yet are trying to buy Bonucci.
Have we shown any interest in Ake, Zouma or Christensen?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No.}

26 Jun 2017 22:24:49
Christensen is the best out of those three, really top player.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2017 23:10:04
Cheers Ed002.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome. John Terry is certainly available. And Zouma for a loan. We will see about Ake.}

26 Jun 2017 23:12:31
Just an honest question Ed but surely the club would of had some idea of how klopp was acting behind the scenes or he would of been sacked by now? Or is it a case of FSG not having the guts to do so.?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - They are the owners and have people in London who run the club. They will be extremely disappointed yet again.}

26 Jun 2017 23:03:18
Was wondering the same thing a few days ago. Christensen has huge potential and played very well the last few years for Gladbach. Also he would be available for something around 20-25 mio € so wouldn't be that bad either.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has already turned down a significant bid for Christensen, they do not wish to sell, and Liverpool has shown no interest.}

26 Jun 2017 23:24:44
Thanks for the quick reply Ed. Jes it's a bit tasty behind all the hugs and laughs so. And I'm a big fan of klopp myself but honestly he must be testing the patience big time now of FSG. Seems like they might try and put a leash on the dog. So to speak. I honestly feel like FSG might see LFC as a problem they cannot fix.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - They are continuing to try but at some point they will let go with the right offer.}

26 Jun 2017 21:27:50
Don't often post but what is the point in Liverpool paying scouts when all we want to do is buy ready made talent. Now for instance this lad keita if our scouts done there job could of had him 3 years ago for 1.5mil. Same goes for some other big clubs even Chelsea Utd how often do kids get a chance.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - im afraid thats the way of the football world now brett, its sad though i agree, the likes of TAA and tom davies etc are the future and have to be integrated into our teams, maybe they should bring in laws that guarantee academy players so much playing time or something, i dont claim to know the answers but the questions are frightening mate..

26 Jun 2017 22:23:23
Is there a law that can be made or have the clubs got all the say.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - the clubs have got it all sewn up brett and the gap between the have,s and have not,s is growing mate, things have to change or the game will die imo..

26 Jun 2017 22:44:21
I know the tv money has blown things outta portion but how do the smaller clubs ment to keep up? The average player is now 20 million which is crazy Liverpool even want to pay 30 million or so they say for the ox with 1 year left on his contract.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2017 21:10:28
Eds- If you had to make a guess, which player do you think LFC will make a bid on next?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - they would just be guesses pooper so its hardly worth bothering with mate, people tend to beat you with a big stick if they dont come off..

26 Jun 2017 21:28:05
Fair enough Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jun 2017 21:43:55
Hi Ed025 do you think we will get VVD and or Keita? Those would be the 2 best possible signings in my opinion. I think we should be able to recoup £80m plus from sales and try to find a LB. Nice to be linked with top quality players but whether we get them is a different matter?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i dont think you will to be honest mark, i think going back for VVD might be a bit cringeworthy and leipzig have no need or inclination to sell keita so i think its an uphill battle mate, i still expect liverpool to do some good business though even though the names might change..

26 Jun 2017 22:18:08
Cheers. I hope we don't end up with the usual crap we buy when we are so close to having a good squad. Hopefully we will get Mendy then, we really need one of our main targets not third or fourth choices in every position.
